I have seen this meme making the circles, of which I first seen at Judy's Blog
, also Herb
's, and Abby-Normal
's then later at others. Since I haven't seen the Meme that Terri
had due to Blog Disruptus (for lack of a better word) I'm going to assume
this may have been the meme she tagged me for. I may or may not have done this a long while back, I'm just too lazy to check, so rather than fight this one, its interesting enough for me to just go ahead and do it.
Four jobs I have had in my life:
1. Buss Boy
2. Paint Store Salesman
3. Maintenance man @ The Mall
(I was also a hooker - but its not what you think - maybe I'll blog entry on this one later. Whatta ya think?)
Four Movies I have watched over and over:
1. Back To The Future (trilogy)
2. Stephen King's, Silver Bullet
3. Night of the Comet
4. It's a Wonderful Life (YES I'm a sap!!! I like to try and watch it every Christmas - that and, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation)
Four places I have lived:
4. Arkansas (different town)
Four Shows I love to watch:
1. Carpoolers (funny new sitcom)
2. Smallville (I'm disappointed Superman is afraid of heights though - I mean duh!)
3. History Channel (anything on ancient Rome or World Wars 1 & 2)
4. Heroes (and I'm kinda getting disappointed this second season)
Four Places I have been on vacation:
1. Whats a vacation? - no one will tell me!
2. Whats a vacation? - no one will tell me!
3. Whats a vacation? - no one will tell me!
4. Whats a vacation? - no one will tell me!
Four of my favorite cuisines:
1. McDonald's Big Mac (eat your heart out PETA!)
2. McDonald's Quarter Pounder
3. Subway Sandwiches
4. Snappy's Fried Chicken (or even KFC)
(keep yer faincy calamari and fish eggs thank you very much)
Four favorite drinks:
1. Dr. Pepper
2. Generic diet Cola
3. Green Tea
4. Filtered Tap Water
Four places (and activities) I would rather be (doing) right now:
1. Anywhere: Relic Hunting with my metal detector and gear (but my back wont let me. sigh)
2. At Home: Singing (if I could ever get my singing voice back - no one likes my current Alfalfa style crooning)
3. At Home: Drawing or Painting (while desire is there, "the mood" hasn't kicked in)
4. Ticking / Playing with Grandson - rarely do I get to see the little knot head.
Four people I will tag:
1. Whoever wants to do it
2. Whoever wants to do it
3. Whoever wants to do it
4. Whoever wants to do it

In light of the events of my last entry - I have filed a first class action law suit against myself for 18.5 Million Trillion Dollars! Of all the get rich quick schemes out there, I bet this is gunna be a winner! YEAH BUDDY! I'd be rollin in the green when I get all that muney from myself. Uhm.., I'm just curious as to how I'm gunna raise that kind of money to pay myself.
Maybe some of you can have a charity concert on my behalf, because I'm pretty certain I'm gunna be pretty ruthless in expecting all that cool green from myself. Sometimes it just sucks to be me. Heck, maybe some topless car washes will help, even. Naw - I guess not. No one wants to see Herb, Myself and the rest of us geriatrics going around without our shirts. It would be like going to Sea World to watch Shamu's babies beach them selves. ACK! This fund raising stuff ain't gunna be easy. Maybe I should just drop the law suit and save myself some headaches.
Well anywho - I called Daughter today. She didn't like what I called er and hung up, so I had to call her back agin. Touchy, touchy, touchy.
No grand-kiddling today. It seems she goes to see the doctor tomorrow to see if said doctor wants to induce labor. I still say putting her to work at the hospital to pay off the bill is a bit much given her delicate condition. Inducing labor indeed.
Anyways - long story short - I had daughter place the phone on her belly (I'm serious) and I told Job.., "Look kid. Do this for your Gampa who loves ya. You are arriving tonight, ya little snot. Got that!?."
SO - I am fully expecting Job to make his debut TONIGHT! So write it down. Job and I have an understanding on this. He WILL arrive tonight. There is NO room for doubt. Unless of course he doesn't in which case - eventually he has to show himself. After all, I know where he lives.

I Shoulda Called the Kiddo
Its late-thirty. (12:28am) For me anyway. Cant sleep. Worried about daughter and I guess I should have called her today. She's most likely okay, but still. I shoulda called or something. I'm a really crappy dad. An awful dad. A good dad would have called his daughter today and ask her how she was feeling. Hold on just a sec. I started this thing and now I have to finish it....
[Dave challenges self - throws self to floor. Oh no! a hard connect to the eye and a kick to the gut! Oh the humanity, people! This has got to be a worlds first for the record books of beating ones self up.
Daveman just flipped himself in mid-air, ladies and gentlemen! Now he's screaming in pain because he realized all of too late, he has a bad back. Now he's kicking his own butt with well choreographed foot work and its amazing, let me tell you! - uh oh! He's unconscious and no one to count to to ten.
Oh well - let the man rest. NO! WAIT! He's moving and just found a dead horse. Now he's beating himself with the dead horse! Its tragic, people! Its horrifying! Its brutal! If this is not taking a cliché AND a metaphor beyond the limits, I don't know what is.
Oh..., Okay - he really is down for the count, now. Stars are circling his head like Indians circling a wagon train. Yep. Its lights out for Dave. Good night all]

Hippies! There is no end to them. They just keep cropping up, and cropping up and cropping up... then they purchase vans and paint murals all over em.., lining the floor-boards with dated florescent orange shag carpet...., but once in a while you find an exceptional hippy what can do some serious entertaining. As I understand it, he doesn't even own a painted van. Not sure about the shag carpet though.
On a serious note - Jay, is not quite the hippy, although his long hair (as if I never ever had any in my time) suggests the possiblities.., does a really great job of singing. Please note, there are no signs of bongs, black light posters or 8-track quadraphonic stereo systems in sight. One day, Jay may end up on the Jay Leno show (i don't know if same first names count as nepotism or not).., and you can say "I knew that dude when he appeared on Daveman's Blawg! Dude! Excellent!"
This guy REALLY sings great. If anyone disagrees, I will meet you in the back alley and beat you retarded with my turbo charged walker, then run over you with my Super-Chair equipped with the Enterprise Warp Nacelles - several times.
With no further doobie.., (ahem) I mean.., ado... Heeeeeeere's Jay!
Jay's Bix Page is located: http://bix.yahoo.com/person/visions
So drop in and check out his tunes, especially "Love Hurts"
Just be sure and tell him Daveman sent yas.

Yes, there are real life superheros out there. They just aren't dressed up in fancy tights, spandex, capes and cool high tech jewelry. Policemen, Firemen, Emergency Medical Technicians, our Soldiers in any branch of the service. As with the fictional comic book heroes, unfortunately some turn to the dark side, and it casts our good guys in a bad light.
Where would we be without our real life heroes? As bad as things seem often times, we could all be living a major hell right now if it were not for our heroes. I would imagine we'd all be living in a world not to dissimilar to, Mad Max 'Beyond Thunderdome'.., and while that makes for a cool movie - it would suck in reality. It would be a completely dark and totally ugly world.
When you look at some place in the world even now, War Lords, rule and slaughter people at will, making the rest of the people in their turf suffer greatly, stealing their food, forcing children to join their ranks. For them such a world of Mad Max, really exists with too few Mad Max,s to make a difference. And trust me - if a guy showed up wearing fancy leotards and funky bling bling to stop them - the bling-bling guy would be slaughtered. Its better to send in men who are dressed for the part. The enemy will not die from laughter, people. It just doesn't work that way. The U.S., Canada, Britain and select others live in a utopia by comparison, thanks to our real life superheros!
SO - next time you see a cop, a fireman, an EMT, a soldier or any one of many real life heroes out there - STOP AND SAY HELLO! Thank them for being there, and what the heck - ask for their autograph. They deserve your hero worship more than fake Hollywood heroes. Brad Pitt? No, sorry. He's not a hero. He gets paid to pretend he is. John Travolta? forget it. Angelina Jole? She looks hawt - but aside from that, she's not a real hero. Every thing she does makes me question if its for press value translating into a bigger bank account - but a cop? or other real life hero? He or she doesn't have mega millions in his wallet. They do their job and does not consist of glamor, glitz or mega millions - but a desire to serve the public trust.
Do yourself and them a favor - hug a REAL hero today! In fact there should be a National "Hug A Hero" day - and anyone during that time dressing up like Superman to distort the real hero image should be locked up for 24 hours. Say no to fake heroes - and yes to the real ones.
HOWEVER - if I REALLY
were to be a Superhero of the fictional kind - GreenLantern is da man! But since that name has been taken, I opt for "Daveman, The Green-Flashlight
By the way - guess who is back?
Well, updated at least. I'm just hoping he's back. Kevin-The-One-Armed-Boy
, man..., He's one of the three + 1 Amigos (Ktoab, Scott, Herb and Myself) and thats because we gots religious value, something I'm not ashamed of. I just get ashamed when I slip up. But this part of the entry isn't about me - but about Baked Chunk: http://bakedchunk.blogdrive.com/
(I made up the Amigos stuff but thats okay - I like it, it stays)
I'M A WEINER! I WAS ONE OF THE WINNERS
OF ABBBY-NORMALS CONTEST

.., a new skiing lodge what has all kinds of cool crap! I laugh in your faces - I am so happy and thrilled. Yes, with this free trip I can achieve new injuries in which to blog about. I SO RAWK!
