checklist for when I can't sleep at 3 in the morning, due to unyielding sinus pressure

My personalized checklist for when I can’t sleep at 3 in the morning, due to unyielding sinus pressure:

  • Watch Jake and Amir videos (if you’re new to them, why don’t you try this one?)

Song from Amir on Vimeo.
  • Apply icepack
  • Saline rinse
  • More jake and amir vids

Vacation from Amir on Vimeo.
  • See who’s online on myspace
  • Alphabetize or categorize my dvd collection (mine’s divided into; movies with John Cusack, Comedies, dramas, tv shows, and not mine)
  • Think of new, interesting blog ideas
  • Catch up on different lost theories
  • Figure out which lymphoma is the good kind (I’m pretty sure one of them is good)
  • Write down a list of words I like and want to start using more (such as “bullocks” and “arvo”)
  • Come up with some really bad metaphors to casually throw out in conversation in the near future (ex: The movie left a bad taste in my mouth, like when you drink an expired no added sugar apple cider packet mixed with hot water and you see little things floating at the top, but you drink it anyway, hoping the taste will get better… and it never does.)
  • Think about making a really good egg salad sandwich
  • Wonder aloud, if a 20 month old baby can snore any louder! (kinda in hopes that he’ll wake up just a tad long enough to switch sleeping positions in his crib, and hopefully stop snoring, but definitely keep sleeping)
  • Plan the perfect prank for April Fool’s Day (this Tuesday). Put the plans in a lock box.
  • Watch the Celebrity Apprentice episode that you Tivo'd from Thursday night.
  • Ponder this: would Donald Trump be just as successful if he didn’t have a bad haircut. The haircut makes him stand out, and it helps him get across that, “I don’t have to be handsome or extremely good looking, I’m incredibly wealthy, instead” sense of arrogance, he seems to have.
  • Try to get some zzzzz’s

Denny Duquette's answering machine message

So, I was watching an episode of Grey's Anatomy, and it was the one where Izzy meets Denny's dad, and he gives her the answering machine message that he left the night he died. I was totally inspired by the speech he gives, so I decided to write it out, so I could look at it, and share it with my little online community;
Dad, Mom? It’s me. I’m calling from seattle grace hospital where the… the beautiful, talented and incredibly stubborn Dr. Isobel Stevens has… well, she’s just given me a brand-new heart and promised to marry me. I know we’ve had our differences and I’m sorry we’ve been out of touch. Believe it or not, I was trying to make everything better. I know you’re angry. And I hope you’ll forgive me. It turns out sometimes you have to do the wrong thing… Sometimes you have to make a big mistake… to figure out how to make things right.

Mistakes are painful. But, they’re the only way to find out who you really are. I know who I am now. I know what I want. I’ve got the love of my life, a new heart, and I want you guys to get on the next plane out here and meet my girl. Everything’s going to be different now. I promise, from here on out, nothing’s ever gonna be the same. I love you, Bye.
I just love this, and totally believe it!

5 best movies that are too old to be played a lot on TV now, but still happen to totally rock, and that I have fond memories of

Top 5 best movies that are too old to be played a lot on TV now, but still happen to totally rock and that I have fond memories of:

5. Strange Brew: Two drunks get trapped in a beer factory, that’s ran by an evil brew-master. Oh, and the evil brew-master is trying to take over the world. Muh-hahahah…. Anyways, the movie is based off of some sketches on SCTV (kinda a Canadian SNL). It has classic lines like, “take off, you hoser!”, and “The breaks are out. No point in steering now”. There’s also a dog, that looks like a skunk, that has the power to fly. How awesome is that???



4. Jingle all the Way: Long before Arnie was the gova-nator, and way back when Sinbad was still really cool, this movie premiered. Ah-nold plays a workaholic dad, that’s trying to get his son a Turbo Man action figure, the same toy that every other boy in America wants. He spends the day searching for the toy, along with Sinbad, an on-edge postal worker, Look for Phil Hartman has the neighbor, Ted (he steals the show). Classic lines; “ ‘Where’s your mom? ‘she’s outside, pettin’ Ted.’”, and “Liz is in the shower, do you want me to go get her?”








3. One crazy summer: Really cool, quirky movie from director John Savage (Better off Dead). Starring John Cusack, he plays a kid fresh outta high school, trying to figure out what to do with his life. His friends and him spend the summer in Cape Cod, where they meet up with an aspiring singer, played by Demi Moore. Also starring Jeremy Piven as, you guessed it, Cusack’s best friend. There’s also a lobster torturing bad guy. Awesome lines: “Chili dog?” and “Check out those really ugly kids!”









2. Mrs. Doubtfire: One of my fav’s when I was a kid. This has Robin Williams at his comedic best! He plays a new divorcee that dresses up as an old woman, to get a job as his ex-wife’s housekeeper, all so he can keep spending time with his kids. Sally Fields plays the ex-wife, and Pierce Brosnan plays her new beau. A fun, family movie that everyone will enjoy. Great lines; “toodaloo!” and “it was a drive-by fruiting!”











1. Captain Ron: Coming in at #1, is this classic Kurt Russell/Martin Short comedy. Short plays a work-obsessed father who inherits an old sailboat, and hires a crusty Kurt Russell, to sail it for him and his family. The classic tale of a father wanting to spend more time with his family, but the family ends up liking the chill Capt’n, better than the dad. Unoriginal plot, but great slapstick comedy is the key to what would be an otherwise boring movie. Classic Russell line; “it’s just a tattoo, boss.”
