Okay new to the blogging. I’ve been wanting to do this for a few weeks now. Other things have cropped up. Work, sleep, and mostly stupid stuff. I won’t elaborate on that, I’ll just say that two years of constant working on a hobby went up in flames tonight. Not literally but almost. HA!
A little bit about me. Most everyone thinks they know me but they really don’t. Again, no elaboration. It’s not anything bad, per se, it’s just that I’m guarded. I guess most of it will come out here. Anyway, I’m a man reaching the vertical age of 40, in less than six months. I am totally scared to death. Thirty wasn’t bad. Forty scares the hell out of me. I have three wonderful kids, Elisabeth 13, Alan 12, and Carly 9. Elisabeth is graduating from 8th grade on Saturday. I am so proud of her. I recently made a video of her that I uploaded on youtube. I’ll have to put that link in later.
I do work. I am a cook at Huddle House. You’re probably laughing at that right now. Hey it’s a job and I am really, really good at it. I am not ashamed of what I do for a living. It keeps a roof over my head and takes care of my little ones. I do enjoy it. I work with some really great people and the store manager Leah is the best. As this blog continues, I’m sure I’ll be ranting and raving about my work. I mean, it’s a source of funny, funny stories. I’ll have to share some of the past ones as I go along. Oh and just so that anyone I worked with at the Leadington Store read this and saw that i said Leah is the best, don’t think I’ve forgotten about Jim. I wouldn’t be where I’m at without him. He truly is the best friend I have ever had.
Another source of my soon to be lunatic ravings will be about the St. Louis Cardinals and thier season, especially with that idiotic team in Cincinnatti. I don’t want to get started on them tonight because I will go on and on and on about how classless that team and city is. They’re almost as bad as the fans in Philadelphia. I mean who in they’re right mind would pick on someone who has shingles in thier eye, with it swollen so badly that they can’t see? Some lunatics over in the city of douche put up a billboard making fun of Tony LaRussa. Clasless. Tasteless. Shows what kind of people live there. I’m not saying all are bad there but geez. When one of the reds’ owners found out, he immediatley called for its removal. Thank god they have at least one person with brains there.
As I get near the end of this, I want to point out that I’m shooting for at least 500 words per blog. Is that a lot? I have no idea. If this becomes halfway decent and people actually read the meandering words of a nearly 40 year-old Huddle House cook, maybe I’ll do something bigger. We’ll see…..
