Joy had a party on Sunday, and I headed down Saturday night to hang out with the family.

I had brought down a bunch of movies with me, none of which Joy was interested in (she wasn’t even keen on watching my awesome home video of the Dallas trip… the nerve!), but Cody, my nephew, was all for some Kung Fu action.

In one of the movies we were watching, a little Asian village boy had an insect tied to a string, watching it fly around and around.

“What the… What is he doing?” My nephew asked.

“That’s entertainment for him, Cody,” I explained.  “They don’t have PS3s over there.”

“But isn’t that where they make them?”

Oh my.

I couldn’t argue with that.

I was helping a user out at work the other day with her new laptop, and we got to talking about music.

Long story short, she is a fan of ’80s tunes (and, really, who isn’t?) and I told her I’d shoot her a list of what I owned and if she saw anything on it, let me know.

Before I sent her the email, I glanced over what I did own, and made an addendum to the unsent email:

“And, no, I don’t have any excuse for Air Supply. I can’t even remember why it’s there. I don’t even listen to it, but I know I downloaded it for a reason. Now it sounds like I’m feeling guilty and trying to explain my way out of it.”

Shortly after I sent it, I got her reply:

“As long as I don’t come across Tiffany, Debbie G., or the like, I’ll hold my tongue.”

“Holy hell. Don’t open that .txt document at all, then.” Came my rebuttal, lame as it was.

I looked at my mp3s again, a little closer, after I sent that reply.

I’m in for a beat down.

So I was tagged by Sparks a while back, and Hot recently. Here are the fours and fives:

Four things:

Four jobs I’ve had:

1) Cleaning cabins of a campground for mentally challenged folks (not fun, but it bought me a Mongoose when I was 14 or so).
2) Warehouse manager (most fun job I’ve ever had).
3) Retail sales manager (worst job I’ve ever had).
4) IT guy (while technically we may be low on the totem, we have the most power).

Four places I’ve lived:

1) My folks place.
2) A two bedroom apartment that sucked (because it was ghetto)
3) A three bedroom duplex that rocked (because I had some of my best times with the roommates there).
4) Where I live now.

Four people I want to bitch-slap right into the middle of next week:

1) Emo kids
2) Dubya
3) Smoke Nazis
4) Hillary (GET THE FUCK OUT ALREADY!)

Four people who e-mail me regularly:

1) No one really. Note, I’m not complaining about that.

Four TV shows I watch:

1) The Office
2) My Name is Earl (Oh how Joy makes me laugh)
3) Supernatural
4) Ghost Hunters

Four places I’ve visited:

1) Russia
2) Germany
3) France
4) Jamaica

Four favourite foods:

1) Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwich on bread that’s so fresh that it almost rips apart when you make the sandwich
2) Totino’s Supreme pizza
3) Domino’s thin crust pizza
4) Pho Bo Vein

Four places I’d like to be right now:

1) On a road trip. That’s all four.

Four things I’m looking forward to this year:

1) HorrorFind Weekend
2) Horror Hound Weekend
3) Christmas
4) Thanksgiving

Five Things:

Five things in my bag:

(disclaimer, I don’t carry a purse, so I’ll go with my backpack that I always carry)

1. My laptop
2. My glasses (both sun and regular)
3. Notebook
4. Pens
5. Zune sync cable.

5 favorite things in my room:

(I’ll go with my home office on this one)

1. The bookshelves Freak left behind that my toys and LE books rest on.
2. This big ass thing that is basically an elephant head on a human body. It’s creepy and cool.
3. My dual monitors.
4. My mini-fridge.
5. My posters that will (eventually) wrap the room.

5 things I have always wanted to do:

1. Hit the rest of the continents.
2. Do a road trip from the east to west coast.
3. Move to the southwest.
4. Stop time.
5. Some sexual things I won’t mention.

5 things I’m currently into:

1. My Zune (I love tweaking it).
2. My 360 (brand new, good times).
3. Bones (the TV show). My buddy told me to watch it, I downloaded all the episodes. It’s fantastic.
4. Movies (I’m always into these).
5. Pulp fiction (the books, not the movie). Ever since I joined up with Hard Case Crime, I look forward to the books I get in the mail every month.

There you have it.

I tag everyone who hasn’t done these yet.
