I hate HP

Why do service companies force you to give up half of a day in order to meet with them. Can you imagine if the news was like that? Well, I think we'll have enough news around the middle of the afternoon, so why don't you watch Channel 4 between noon and 5pm and we'll try and get that news to ya! How do people with real jobs deal with this? I had to have three separate companies come out last week, and it took up a lot of time.

Now on to those idiots at HP...They did decide to give me a hard time...5-6pm on a Friday evening. A little back story: My TV is one year and one month old, and guess how long my warranty is. Well, my TV has been squiggling every time a white flash hits the screen. HP has sent out a tech twice before and made the problem worse, and now this ass-clown they sent out Friday has officially destroyed my beautiful new TV. Won't even turn on. And this took him three hours to accomplish. So, to recap:

Friday, 6pm - my TV is broken but I can still watch it
Friday, 9pm - No picture, no TV and Friday night ruined

Where's my new TV?

Thanks HP, you jerk

The boy

I suppose its time to post a picture of the boy. Buckley came to us at the first of the year, and he is a pain in the ass. But he make a funny noise when he scratches his ears, he constantly runs wind sprints around the house, he does fetch (when HE wants to) and the best thing about him is that he always wants to be close to us.

He's named after LuAnn's boyfriend on King of the Hill, so you have to call him Buckalee.

Weight update

I'm going to officially weigh in at 198 lbs. Went to the grocery store last night and got better food. Also went to the gym this morning.

My weight loss goal is 23 pounds. Since 23 is my lucky number, perhaps that is a good sign.

I have a purpose

Well, I've decided that one of my purposes for this blog is to chronicle my weight loss.

Of course, as I'm typing this, I'm chewing on a Twix and Mountain Dew, two things I normally eat. But I've been eating like crap lately, and it shows.

I'll post an official weight tomorrow, but I think I can use this blog as a motivational tool. I think I need to lose about 25-30 pounds. Perhaps I can use the gym membership that I've been paying for.

I also really want to start playing golf. But it really seems like I never have the time.

My Fantasy Football Hell

So, I have started Fantasy Football again after a one-year absence and I'm not happy. Guys that suck all year that I bench all of the sudden have a huge game and I'm sick of it. I'm quitting on my team. I hope they go 0-16. Good luck to them.

Here's some links

The Big Lead, Deadspin - What the Sports Guy once was to me, these are my goto links everyday. Nice blend of pop culture and sports.

Unclebarky - Great source for all things DFW TV News.

I have a definitive Lost site. This is for hardcore fans only. Great screencaps, easter eggs, spoilers and rumors.

I'm not a good dancer, but I have a signature move which I stole from the Fresh Prince of all people.

Leenks (NSFW) - Great link site for any crap you want to see on the web. I enjoy their Leenks Pictures of the Week.

Here are two other sports blogs sites:

Awful Announcing (you guys still owe me a Natrone Means jersey)

Fire Joe Morgan (this guy really doesn't like him)


More TV (and a radio) shows I enjoy

The Office (NBC) - I can't believe that NBC has a show I enjoy and I can't believe that I left this off my original list. Dwight and Jim crack me up and Michael is bigger than life. That's what she said. Looking forward to the new season and being able to use my Schrute Bucks.

Futurama (Adult Swim) - This show is slowly growing on me. Its similar to where the Simpsons were once upon a time.

Dallas Cowboys football - Is it wrong of me to enjoy football this much? I love sports as much as the next guy, but I REALLY love the Cowboys. I feel ill when I miss the game, and I'll Tivo a game I already know the outcome to. I'm devastated after a loss and absolutely giddy after a win. And I have a Tony Romo mancrush.

Tiffani Amber-Theissen Division

Fastlane (TV One) - Maybe my all-time favorite show...It was good enough for me to buy it illegally on eBay. It lasted on year on FOX and left on a nasty cliffhanger, but Tiffani is my girl.

90210 (SoapNet) - Between you and me, I shouldn't still be watching this. Actually, I've never should have watched this show. Brandon's hair is one of my great heroes.

Saved by the Bell (Everywhere) - Friends Forever by the Zach Attack, Screech melting down in real life, Slater's mullet and unnecessary wrestling subplots, The College Years, and of course my girl.

BaD Radio (1310 The Ticket) - Sure I'll listen to The Musers and the Hardline, but those shows are mailing it in these days. This show was good enough to pull me away from DP before he left. We just seem like we're on the same wavelength.
