A couple of months ago, I brought home a can of whip cream and my roommate asked me what it was for. I replied with "hot chocolate," and she responded with, "what's a hot chocolate?" The interesting is that my roommate and I have a very humorous relationship and she was expecting some kind of explanation similar to a Dirty Sanchez or Cleveland Steamer. But alas, it was literally for hot chocolate. Since then, it's been a running joke for those who have heard the story.
About a week ago, I challenged Andrea to come up with the dirty definition of a hot chocolate. To paraphrase her genius answer, it includes the passing of diarrhea from one butthole to another butthole. Completely grossed out, but incredibly impressed, I was absolutely sure that this could never happen.
A few days ago, I found evidence that it has already happened and is documented online. I will not post the link because it's something that a lot of people shouldn't see, especially those with weak stomachs. But, if you are curious, you may want to do a search for scat.
Net net, gross.

Day 3 just ended of my staycation week. So far it's been great. I'm taking all of the money I would have spent on a vacation somewhere else, and enjoying it with local activities. Yesterday included golf and the Lakers vs. Bulls game. Today was Disneyland. Tomorrow might be Wicked. Friday is a poker party. Saturday is Disneyland again. And Sunday is brunch.
Side note, I haven't shaved all week to see how far my facial hair would come along. Figuratively speaking, if my facial hair were to be compared to some other guys regular hair, I would be the equivalent to someone with inverse culdesacs. I'll let you figure that one out.

It's nuts how within the last decade, we've experienced things that will definitely make it into history books and that kids will ask us what we were doing when these things happened. We'll be able to look back and say where we were when 9/11 happened, when gay marriage became legal, and most notably, when the United States elected its first President of color.
It's awesome how we are a part of history.
On a side note, a lot of the things that we thought we would have in the future are coming up today. Will.I.Am was being interviewed via hologram on CNN tonight. And it looked just like what we envisioned in Star Wars when the Jedi's or the Sith Lord would communicate to someone else via hologram. These are really exciting times.
On a side side note. I came to the conclusion that helmets are not the most flattering accessory.

Today was my first day biking to work. I live a shade under 7 miles away and it took about 34 minutes on side streets to get here. There were a couple of interesting things on the way in...
- I definitely need to get a helmet. I think karma is going to get me back big time after almost hitting two pedestrians (one biker, one skater) last week
- I was inches away from road kill
- On Riverside, in between the Studio Lot and Sonora/Victory, it smells like horse shit because everyone there owns a horse and it's right next to the Equestrian Center
- This could be pretty scary riding back after work in the dark

It's amazing how many people play fantasy sports. I think this year, one of my leagues is going to have a live draft party (like Knocked Up, where Paul Rudd's wife thinks that he's cheating on her, but he's actually sneaking out to his Fantasy Baseball parties).

On the lighter side of TV programming, I think the usual line up is what's in store for this fall -
I'm also thinking of catching -
- 30 Rock
- Mad Men
On a side note, I've been watching a lot of TV online. There's a great site that has SNL, The Office and Family Guy episodes on it - http://www.hulu.com/. I haven't been up to date with Family guy, but I watched a few episodes online, and it's still one of my favorite cartoons. Here's a sample from one of the episodes from Season 6 titled "Love Blactually."

However, in the office, I've interpreted "love her to death" as, "I can definitely tolerate and even somewhat like this person on the personal side, but I can not stand working with them." In almost all of the cases that I've heard this phrase used in the office, there is always the inevitable but that proceeds it.

If you have 30 minutes and 11 seconds, check out this clip from This American Life. It talks about internet vigilantes that get back at scammers -
If that doesn't work, the audio file is here.
Good find, Arthur.

Filled with everything from a priest mastered in the martial arts to the undead humping to a giant naked mother zombie, Braindead can be described as Night of the Living Dead meets Alien meets Psycho meets Thriller. This was one of the goriest movies I've ever seen. It has entire rib cages being ripped from bodies, heads with the spinal cords still attached, the use of a lawnmower as a weapon and of course, a love story to tie it all together. What's really crazy is that I don't think there were any guns in the whole movie. All of the zombie killing was used with conventional weapons. In addition, the leading lady was a woman of color which is just as amazing!

My favorite comment on this was -
FOR FUCK'S SAKE?!?!?! How the fuck are people supporting this nonsense?!
I can just imagine a notecard in her pocket.

- cellular phone
- digital camera
- nintendo DS
- iPod touch
This coupled with the numerous electronics we deal with on a daily basis is a recipe for the black shakes. I'm wondering if getting an iPhone could conceivably cut this list in half...

Firstly, the Great Wall of China is unreal! It's a crazy feeling to just stand on a piece of history that has really stood the test of time. Just to think that hundreds of years ago, there were battles fought on this wall, and a bunch of people died defending it or attacking it. It's nuts. When we first got there, I thought we were going to hike up to the wall, but our guide told us it would take at least 2 hours. So instead, you take a lift (like a ski lift) up to the top.
From there you're free to walk up and down the wall and take pictures, and all of that jazz. Now walking up and down the wall is no stroll in the park. Since it follows the ridges of the mountains, it's like hiking up and down rolling hills. I thought I was going to pass out from heat exhaustion. I've never sweat so much in my life. I think we only walked up about a mile or two and walked back. You can't tell in this picture, but my shirt is pretty much drenched. The wall itself is about 4,000 miles long and is the only man-made structure that you can see from space.
Instead of hiking back down the mountain after an exhausting two hours of walking the wall, the Chinese have come up with a clever way to get back down. You can either a) take the same lift down, that you took up or b) tobaggan down! I did the latter which was really fun, but could have been funner if you were allowed to go really fast. Unfortunately, I have zero tobagganing pics.
Another awesome thing to see in China is Forbidden City. It is right across the street from Tianmen Square. Forbidden City is where a lot of the royal families built their temples, houses, gardens, etc. This place is huge! I started taking a lot of pictures, but figured that when I looked back at them, I wouldn't remember were I was since they all look very similar. I think that I heard that none of the peasant people were allowed in the Forbidden City, and it was restricted to just royalty and their servants. That's a big place for just those folks. Here's a picture of the moat that surrounds and protects the city. Again, this was during a really hot and humid day in China, and my shirt is drenched in sweat. But you can't complain because all of that sweating has to be good for the baby bump. Oh and if you ever go to China and you pick up one of the maps from the hotel, the scale is really odd. On the map, Forbidden City looked so close to where we were staying, but it ended up being like a 30 minute walk!
Other than that, there was Olympic fever everywhere, seeing as we were there right before the Olympics started. One of our guides said that they made all of the people and businesses around the Bird's Nest vacate for the weeks that the Olympics were in town because they didn't want that extra traffic to be there during that time.
A few last notes. A lot of the people that I encountered who spoke good English there had hidden agendas. They might try to get you to come to an "event" that their "university" is throwing, or they might want to give you "English/Chinese lessons". Be weary of these people. I was naive and thought that people in China were just that nice. And definitely try the Beijing duck (also known as Peking duck). You can either put it in this English muffin type bread, or wrap it up in a this thing that looks like a tortilla, but it's made out of egg roll wrapping. Oh, and if you're thinking of watching a movie, it's a totally different experience. The ushers there seat you, and you don't have to worry about following along, because most of the movies are subtitled in Enlgish. How awesome is that?!?!? We watched Red Cliff which can be described as Kingdom of Heaven meets Lord of the Rings.

She's probably fallen off of a lot of guys' "to-do" list, but I'm keeping her on mine. She's received a lot of heat lately about getting fat. I don't agree, and I'm cool with her getting a little thicker. She has a great rack and a great personality to match. And she's very local. I've actually seen her in Hollywood, and I think she shops at the Best Buy in Burbank.
