Thoughts about life, crap, training, and stuff

People will always disappoint you.  Always.  Expect it.

"Everything happens for a reason."  What a bullshit fucking saying.  That's the shit people say to you when they have no way to explain how things got all fucked up.  It's the most meaningless saying ever!  You can use it for virtually ANY situation and it works!

"My car has a flat tire."

"Everything happens for a reason."

"I got cancer and died."

"Everything happens for a reason."

"The milk I got from the store is sour."

"Everything happens for a god damn reason."

Bullshit!  Sometimes people just fuck shit up for no reason.  Sometimes things are practically perfect, and someone has to be an asshole and cause problems for no god damn reason.  I know people like this.  I know people who can't be happy, and their "everything happens for a reason" is their destructive attitude and behavior

If your girlfriend uses her relationship status on Facebook to let you know you're broke up, and you take her back later they should cut your balls off.  You are not a man.  You do not deserve the set of hangers you were born with.

My IT bands are in pretty rough shape.  I have been lazy about foam rolling and NOW I'm being forced to because when I wake in the morning they are stiffer than my buddy is.  I hate when I neglect something in training that I usually do and end up having to make amends for it.

Movies -

Real Steel - Took the whole family to see this.  It was really good.  The girls thought it was the best movie they had ever seen.  Obviously it's not quite the best movie I have ever seen, but it was very good and the wife liked it a lot more than she thought she would.  I liked the ending because it actually took a slightly different turn than I expected.  I won't spoil it for ya, but go check it out.

I went Halloween shopping yesterday with the family after the movie and they picked out their outfits in like 5 minutes.  I however, being the diva that I am, took about an hour and 15 minutes.  We have several costume parties to go to and I want my shit to be awesome.  I ended up going with a Roman Soldier but I'm lukewarm about it.  I know, if that's the worst thing in my life right now, things are going pretty good.

I have been buying those MHP protein puddings and I love em.  I eat em with peanut butter at night sometimes instead of cottage cheese.  I know, there is soy in there.  That little bit of soy isn't going to cause problems.  I mean really.

Funny conversation about movies this week at my work.  Time travel.  It's the ultimate cop out for not having to explain shit.  Once time travel is introduced into a movie, ANYTHING goes.  What I mean is, when I watch a movie I have kind of a reality bubble I put that movie in.  I know I have to suspend reality but the movie kind of creates a reality bubble within the context of the movie.  If you burst that bubble in the middle or the end of the movie, you will lose me (and usually the audience) because it all feels fake and contrived.

When you insert time travel, it's the ultimate "I don't have to create a reality bubble" copout.  This doesn't mean I don't like movies that have time travel in then.  But some movies use time travel as a way explain away everything.  In other words, there doesn't have to be an explanation for anything.  You can just make shit up based around the time travel.

I think the conversation was far more entertaining in person than I can explain on my blog.

I got blitzed Saturday night.  I haven't gotten that wasted in a LONG time.  Oh well, I kinda needed it after dealing with some shitty people over the past two weeks.  I'm good with it now though and as usual, it feels good to move on and cut that chapter out.

I hope everyone got blitzed and cried like bitches this weekend.  Welcome to Monday.


  1. Total agreement on the issue of breaking the reality a movie, or any fiction, creates.
    I'll suspend my disbelief happily for space travel or super powers or you name it for a fun time, but when the makers/authors start breaking the rules they themselves setup, than it's just insulting to me as a viewer/reader.

  2. I've had this "everything happens for a reason" agrument with a friend of mine.
    He has recently left a job he despised, got a better job the he actually enjoys with a lot more money, and even found a truly good woman who appreciates who he is and stands by him.
    He is always saying to me "this all happened for a reason, and things in life happen for a reason" - its total bullshit. What happened is he got his shit together both professionally and in his love life so that when opportuniites came along he was much better placed than previously to take advantage of these situations to his betterment - it didnt just fucking happend by chance and for some mystical "reason".
