What an awesome weekend! It’s amazing how much better the weekend is after a Hawks win…and man was that a roller coaster of emotions during that game. One minute it looks like the team just can’t catch a break…from not being able to stop Brandon Marshall, to the refs pretty much calling everything against the Hawks. But then Russell Wilson ripped off his proverbial T-Shirt, said his prayers, ate his vitamins, and Russell-Mania ran wild in their final drive…putting the team on his back leading them to a touchdown…and a victory. So we thought! Then with 24 seconds left in the game Cutler throws a bomb to Brandon Marshall, and the game is tied with a field goal with seconds left. Overtime. Just like when the Hulkster was getting beat down and would eventually lift his arm to get pumped…Russell-Mania did the same. Once again talking the lead, and leading his team down the field…and BAM…TD pass to Sidney Rice. Wow…what a win. You know who was excited besides me? Their biggest fan…Lulu!
After that win, and a 49’ers loss…how crazy is this? The Seahawks could win the NFC West — granted it’s a long shot, as they would have to win out the rest of the season (including a game against the 49’ers) and the 49’ers would need to lose to New England. It is do-able…the Hawks are playing all but one of their games at home, and that road game is against Buffalo but it’s in Toronto. To quote Russell Wilson… Go Hawks (I love that he says that after the interviews he does).
The night before the wife and I set up our Christmas tree. For those that were wondering, it’s fake…no not the dog, but the tree! We used to get a real tree, but a couple years ago we had a spider infestation…and that ended the real tree tradition.
We discovered an awesome Christmas music CD…typically we will listen to Michael Buble’s X-Mas CD…but this is our new jam!
My Zune cut off the title…it’s not Cee-Lo’s “Magic Mom” (although that would be a great name to a CD), it’s “Moment Of Magic”, and he nails so many of the Christmas classics! Here are a couple songs from the CD:
According to a new survey by the jobs website Glassdoor, 2% of workers say their TOP New Year's resolution for 2013 is to figure out a way to get their boss FIRED. Some people are taking a slightly less aggressive path, by just looking for a new job . . . 23% say their main goal is to find a new job. Of the people who are planning to actually stay at their jobs, 33% say their top resolution is to get a raise.
Based on this…have you ever gotten someone fired? Or…was someone responsible for you being fired? What happened? Here are the texts we received:
I set up a camera in the storage room and showed my boss a video of my supervisor smoking oxycontin during work. . . As a valet.
Got my x wife fired from her retail job. Would call once a week and complain to the manager. Then finally called the gm and complained he fired her that day awsome revenge
guy named Jones refused a trip because he had a dog at home. The boss confused my name, Jordan, with his and cut my contract off. He was too stubborn to sort out the confusion
Made a waitress quit just by ignoreinger her and it made her have a nervous break down
According to a new survey, about TWO out of FIVE people say their life has NOT MET their childhood dreams and expectations. I think they need to define what age is “childhood” – because if it is when we were really young, then I am one of those people that are not doing what I hoped as I am not Aquaman, an astronaut, or a fireman. However…when I was a little older (but still a kid), I wanted to grow up and be a broadcaster…so BooYa!
What about you? What did you think you would be doing, and what are you actually doing? Did you or did you not meet your childhood dreams and expectations? Here are the texts we got…
