Side note: When I was talking to manz about the results, this is what went down.
Me: That's so awesome that Hillis won! I'm so glad for you and Browns fans!
Manz: Yeah, he's the first Cleveland player to be on the cover of a major sports game in any sport EVER.
Me: Wow, really? That's even more awesome! I guess everyone loves an underdog.
Manz: (2 seconds after I said "underdog") Yeah, way more so than someone who murders dogs.
PS: Damnit JDL you beat me to the punch, I saw your comment as I was typing this post out!

As I said, I just found out about their beef. Ordinarily I am a fan of Spike Lee's work. I appreciate what he's trying to do and the messages he tries to convey. I don't necessarily like every single thing he's done, but overall, I like him. He can be a little extreme at times, but hey, we live in a free country, right? As it so happens, I agree with his assessments of Tyler Perry's work. It's the lowest of the low, appealing to the lowest common denominator of the masses. I have never been a fan of Tyler Perry's work, and as a matter of fact I actually was pissed when I found out his presence would be contaminating Star Trek. Thankfully he had only a few lines. Other than that I've mostly ignored Tyler Perry and his work because, being the elitist pig I am, it doesn't appeal to me in any way, shape or form, on any level.
But this week, listening to radio on the way to work, and listening to Tyler Perry's rant about Spike Lee, I was PISSED. He actually had the nerve, the audacity, the SHEER UNMITIGATED GALL to compare himself to Booker T. Washington and W. E. B. Du Bois. Are you fucking kidding me? Seriously, Tyler Perry? SERIOUSLY?
Excuse me while I go bang my head on my desk several times. It's clear I'm missing something here. I must have misunderstood Tyler Perry from the beginning. Here I thought he was propagating stereotypes and bringing black people down, when actually he's really trying to bring them up. How silly of me.

I think part of the reason I've been so stressed lately is that I have not stared at enough lady parts to help make me feel better. Or that's what I'm telling myself at least.
I love the side view. Really helps illustrate that I could rest my drink on the top of her ass if I wanted to.
This girl is super hot. This whole picture is working for me. And, she looks like Alicia Keys which is awesome.
Here's a picture anyone would like. It's artsy and a very good quality picture. Plus I could stick a fork in that ass, knowwhatI'msayin?
Seriously, isn't your first thought when you see this: Turn around! TURN AROUND FOR THE LOVE OF BABY JESUS!
That's just nice.

So Sunday was me and manz one year anniversary. I can't believe that we've been married for a whole year. And I don't mean that in a bad way at all, but just that it seems like time has passed so quickly. I guess it really has, mostly because so much has gone on in the last year. I'm glad to say that I'm just as happy as I was a year ago if not more so. Actually, I think I am happier, because as opposed to getting the wedding over with, all I feel now is excitement about the rest of our lives that's still to come.
We kept it pretty low key. We decided to see a movie and have dinner at a joint that's known as the best restaurant in San Diego. We ended up seeing Hanna, which was pretty good. The camerawork at times did give me a bit of a headache and nausea, but that might be because it's been a while since I've seen an action movie at the theater. If you decide to watch the movie, keep in mind that it's supposed to be like a fairy tale, and I don't mean that Disney bullshit. I mean like a real fairy tale. I read some review that was talking shit about how the characters were written/directed. The reviewer had an issue with the villainess, Cate Blanchett, being too much of an archetype. Well, HELLO, it's supposed to be like a fairy tale. Good and evil is pretty clear cut in fairy tales, and both sides display the epitome of each archetype.
Anyway. We had initially decided that we weren't going to get each other gifts, but well, we were at the nice mall out here and I was looking at kicks, and then I came across these:
Dude. They had ONE pair, and it was in my size. Destiny, amirite? Manz said that sealed the deal in his opinion, and so these are now sitting in my closet. As much as I love shoes, I have to say that this pair is absolutely the most awesome pair of shoes that I've ever owned, and maybe ever will own. I sent these pics to my bot Ian and he said, "Their only enemies will be clown shoes that escaped from Arkham, and scuffs." In fucking deed.
Anyway, since we were going to a 5 star restaurant, manz thought I might like it if we dressed up so we did.
Aw, I look pretty happy, don't I? I think it was the shoes. The shoes? It's gotta be the shoes!
The view was pretty sweet. This is the bay and harbor in SD, and to the left is the beginning of downtown. Manz wanted there to be a sunset, but I thought it looked cool anyway. Then again, I have been known to be emo at times.
Seriously, what restaurant does this kind of shit? The waiter got a 30 dollar tip and he deserved every penny. The food was awesome, the service was top notch, and this at the end was too good.
All in all a most satisfying day.

Quick newsflash about me in case you're interested:
- Yes, I'm still having problems at work.
- Yes, I still hate my coworkers and I still want to kill them all.
- Yes, I still love my job.
- In other unrelated news, I've lost almost 40 pounds! I'm finally getting back to my old self again. I'm hoping I can lose at least another 20 by June, 'cause manz and I are going to the Dominican Republic with his fam for vacation.
-I've started playing Rift. (Partially why I haven't posted in a while, too.) I know, I'm a big ol' dork, but I was tired of WoW, and I still do love MMORPGs.
-I'm mad about the possible lockout and the horrifying possibility of no football.
-I love Rep. Anthony Weiner from New York, he's fucking awesome. Possibly more on him forthcoming, or you can google him.
- ^ Semi-related, I stopped lurking on Reddit so much and actually posting comments. I got over 600 comment karma, baby! BOOYAKASHA! (Yes, I'm a dork for being proud I have comment karma. But hey, what internet nerd doesn't like validation from her nerdy peers? People apparently think the shit I say sometimes is funny or interesting. I dig it.)
Last but not least, do any of you know of an iPad app where I can post to this blog from? I tried a couple and it hasn't worked. At this point I'll pay for one. So if anyone's bored and has some free time to research for me, or knows of one offhand, I'll love you longtaimz.
