I hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving weekend…I know I did!
The weekend started on Wednesday night, as my wife and I hit the town…we made the trek from Puyallup to Seattle to see my friend’s band play at the Triple Door. My bud Brent, and his band – Brent Amaker and The Rodeo played to a packed room, and wow…this was one of the best shows I have seen in a long time. These guys seriously put on a show…
Not only do they look sharp, but they had a burlesque dancer on stage for a couple songs, and that didn’t suck…and they had two male dancers on stage too…it was so random, yet very entertaining. One of the coolest moments was during their instrumental song “Times To Set Things Straight”, Brent sat down and ate a steak…only to get up to say the one line (Times To Set Things Straight) a couple times during the song. It was awesome…
I noticed on Brent’s Facebook page he posted a close up of that moment…check it out, and props to Greg Roth from www.SeattleMusicInsider.com for the sweet picture.
I was stoked that they played this song at the show…
Thanksgiving day was awesome…it features the 3 F’s: Family, Food, and Football! You can’t go wrong when you have turkey to eat!
I know a lot of you were wondering what our pup wore for Thanksgiving…here she is in her Thanksgiving outfit:
My wife sent me this awesome pic this morning…yesterday we put the X-0Mas lights up and decorated the house…apparently Lulu is really into our Snowman…
This year's Black Friday saw its usual nationwide string of idiocy and violence. Here are some of the "highlights" . . .
A 34-year-old Massachusetts man went to K-Mart for their midnight deals, and took his girlfriend's two-year-old son. But after getting a 51-inch TV, he FORGOT the kid . The police found the boy in the parking lot at about 1:30 A.M.
In San Antonio, a man tried to jump the line . . . so another person in line PULLED A GUN on him. The line jumper took cover behind a refrigerator, and fortunately no shots were fired.
At a Walmart in Mississippi, someone dropped a HOG-IN-HEAT SCENT BOMB to try to get other people to leave the store. Apparently it smells like hog pee. There's no word on how many people it drove out of the store.
A video surfaced from a Walmart in Georgia where people pushed, elbowed, and fought over a crate of cell phones. Here is the video:
Based on these Black Friday stories…what is your Black Friday story? Did you see something crazy? Did you get a great deal? Did you miss out on a deal? Here are the texts we got:
I was in like at Target, and the lines wrap through the store. When we reached the wine isle, the lady behind me opened a bottle and drank it while in line. She paid for the empty bottle when we reached the registers.
I live in Covington wa about three blocks from Walmart. Even before midnight a 71 yr old man had ran over someone and they had to get air lifted out. But plus side got my 50 inch tv for $298
I wrk at southcenter best buy, people were camping, with tents!, the Monday before
On the line for best buy on black friday i saw this chick with her roughly 3 month old son breast feeding right in the middle of everyone. what made it horrible is the fact it is 11:30 pm and freezing cold outside. glad she is not my mom.
I worked retail on black friday last year. 1chick hit me w a shoe, an old lady called me a stupid cow & a kid knocked down & shattered a glass display. ~Chris
I got a sweet brand new PS3 bundle for $199. I saved $70! I only waited an hour in line!
I went to wal mart on black friday just to cause trouble! Fight through the crowds and pushing people out of the way even though i don't want anything. Haha
I stood in line for 10 hours at a store for there first 600 people giveaway, being within the first 100 people and I only got a 5 dollar gift certificate.
I heard on the news some guy urinated on the sidewalk to save his place in line
Larry Hagman . . . J.R. Ewing from "Dallas" . . . passed away on Friday of complications from throat cancer. He was 81. He'd been fighting it for the past 13 months. Hagman's breakout role was on the 1965 sitcom "I Dream of Jeannie", but he gained huge notoriety as J.R. on "Dallas" -- a character that people loved to hate. Based on this…what fictional character do you love to hate? Here are the texts we got:
Lori Grimes of TWD.
right now would have to be Merl from walking dead. Hate him but would hate to see him go.
Clay from SOA. That Rat Bastard is so easy to hate. Ron Pearlman on the other hand is an awesome actor& plays the part to the hilt.
I love to hate clay from Sons Of Anarchy. The guy is selfish, twisted and all about business. he gets to slay Katey Sagal and she is one of the hottest milfs on TV
That dude in the Facebook movie was such a douche bag I can't stand him now. I chalk that up to great acting, but sucks for him.
The entire cast of Jersey shore, maybe not fictional but definitely fake!!
I love to hate Vickie Guerrero on WWE
Cersi from game of thrones- Amanda
Ari gold from entourage
Definately "Syler" from the show heros. Mike...
Wallowitz and Sheldon on Big Bang. I would to throw a beating on those 2 every show. Love to watch anyway.
Nelly Olson from little house on prairie
Hey guys. I love to hate CM Punk and all the other Paul Heyman guys. -James in North Bend
Nancy from weeds. If she really loved her kids she would just get an honest job.
I hate The Peanutbutter Monster that hides in my Daddy's pants AHHHHHHHH! - Lulu
