Pasta Primavera

OK so here is the thing, I'm not going to talk about any sports today because I don't want to talk about Mr. Taylor's death and I'd feel even worse if I talked about everything else but that. So anyway, as with everyone who dies, I send good thoughts to the friends and family of Mr. Taylor.

So what I will talk about is some more random crap. This is stuff that I think about fairly often. Crap like this gets stuck in my head and never leaves. If this were to be a regular addition to the "column" I'd have to name it stupid shit tem thinks of. I guess it is along the line of Skunkpatch's "10 things I think I think." except my stuff is not as retarded (but don't worry it is still retarded).

1) If humans evolved from monkeys and God created humans in his own image, doesn't that make God a monkey? And if God is a monkey does that make humans > God? Or does it just mean that Monkey God is pissed off about how we turned out. Perhaps humans = Monkey God's greatest failure.

2) Isn't it possible that the universe is just some hike school kid's (alien) 4th grade science fair project? At first he/she was all into it but now we are just locked in some closet waiting for the kid's parents to die so that when he/she inherits the house he/she can come back and find the shoebox with the universe in it and say "I remember making that, it was awesome, whoa! now it is a shithole." And the he/she will throw us out.

3) It is too hard to pass legislation that stops old people from driving (because they all suck at it) because old people are the only ones who vote.

4) Luck is a zero sum gain. Meaning that if something lucky happens to you that somewhere someone else is having bad luck. So the next time you run into some good luck think of the person who is having bad luck because of you.

5) People at work need to realize that tuesday's I post so they need to leave me alone. Also they need to make up their minds about certain things. But they pay me money so I won't bitch out loud.

OK time to add another chick to the unspeakable list: I am going to jump on the Amy Adams bandwagon and add her to the list. She is in that Enchanted movie, which of course I have not seen and also was in Talledega Nights. She was the dorky hot chick. I did see that movie. Anyway, Amy welcome aboard. I know you are reading this and are thrilled.

Now for the tem movie review of a movie tem has not seen: 25th Hour

This movie is number 55 on El Pad's list, apparently. This is a rare movie that I have never even heard of, let alone seen. But in any case it is a pretty good movie. It is really similar to the 24 show that is on Fox from time to time, but it has 25 hours instead. I really think that the Fox people decided that the movie would make a good TV show, if they just had cut an hour off the thing.

Anyway, so in 25th Hour Kurt Russel has 25 hours to escape from a prison city. It turns out the prison city is New York. Also he has to escape with the president who fell out of a plane and landed there. He has 25 hours to do it in, so of course he takes all 25 hours. The movie really focuses on that last hour. So anyway, Russel goes in, finds the president, shoots some hoops with Shaft and befriends some taxi driver or something. He gets the president out, but double crosses him somehow and saves America. It is awesome.

3 helmet stickers out of 5.


OK comment away.

in the Yahoo! league I am .05 points out of a playoff spot.

blue said...

I do like pasta primavera

jugdish said...

Office gift exchange and free lunch today...good times.

tem said...

we do not have gift exchange, but usually have an office lunch at some super fancy place.

tem said...

i was not even sure i spelt primavera right.

blue said...

looks right to me

jugdish said...

We have the men buy gifts for the men, and women for the women, and we do like a white elephant gift exchange, except the gifts are good. Its a small group, like 8 people.

blue said...

I opted out of the secret santa program at my office this year...i used impending baby birth as an excuse.

blue said...

at my old company, we had an office in Albuquerque with only like 8 people in it. They did a white elephant exchange, but with liquor, and then they drank it the rest of the afternoon. I went one year, it was a blast.

blue said...

wow, didn't take long for Houston Nutt to find a job...headed to Ole Miss.

blue said...

I'm still taking offers through today for Amare...people gotta bring tha heat.

tem said...

Nutt is a funny name.

jugdish said...

Anytime you can hire a coach with the last name of Nutt...you do it.

blue said...

cmblue's grandpa is an Ole Miss alum, i'll see what he thinks of this.

tem said...

insert joke where TP is as old as cmblue's grandpa here.

jugdish said...

My wife and I went to meet her sister out to try a new bar near by last night at about 9:30, but it was closed. Not a good sign. Not good for business.

Beth said...

Tem, I absolutely loved the monkey god comment. I think I'm going to steal it and use it as my own. :-)

El Padrino said...

blue the speech into the mirror was instant classic

El Padrino said...

i thought in the evolution thoery there is no god ?

tem said...

"i thought in the evolution thoery there is no god ?"

i guess my thought operates under the "can't it be both" theory.

jugdish said...

I'm good with that theory.

tem said...

i honestly have no idea what 25th hour is about. i do not even know when it was made or who starred in it.

El Padrino said...

nice work tem

and old people should be moved to thier own state, like Idaho or something

once you get over the age of 65 your out

El Padrino said...

blue i sent sumtin

blue said...

"and old people should be moved to thier own state, like Idaho or something"

they have their own state, it's called Florida

El Padrino said...

true, florida and arizona

tem said...

Az is for old people, keith, and hilary's co-pilot.

tem said...

" I think I'm going to steal it and use it as my own. :-)"

stealing is fine, just don't tell the law dogs about Monkey God. They will not know how to handle it.

El Padrino said...

good call on the over last night jug

lawdawgs have no soul, thus they don't believe in God

On the good side, I only lost $2.33 or something like that.

For lawdawgs, money = god.

RIP Sean Taylor.

El Padrino said...

armstead just said now that Heaven has one hell of a safety

El Padrino said...

*assuming he went to heaven
*which im sure he did, jus clarifying
*and if he didnt then hell has one hell of a safety now not heaven

jugdish said...

I'm going to heaven Lt. Dan.

El Padrino said...

yes you are soilder

hilary is my co-pilot said...

"Sean was awakened with his girlfriend and 18-month old baby," Sharpstein said. There were "noises, thumps in the living room." Taylor "got up and locked the bedroom door. Before he could do anything, the door was kicked in and two shots were fired -- one hit him in the leg, one went into the wall."

Taylor "was on the floor, nonresponsive, bleeding out and chest heaving, eyes rolled back and he was pretty much gone from that point on," Sharpstein said.

Taylor's girlfriend "tried to call 911 and it's unclear whether the phone lines were cut or the phone was broken or off or unplugged or turned off," said Sharpstein. "She had to use her cell phone to eventually call 911."


fuck.

El Padrino said...

sucks

El Padrino said...

all those animals that these athaleetes uzed to hang out with no where they all live

happens all the time
this time someone got hurt

last year eddu curry and his whole fam was tied up while burglers went through his house and took everything

i'm surprised it's that easy to break in to these homes though
you'd think they'd have a airtight security system a la Scarface

ToddPacker said...

you'd think that he would put in a security system after the 1st break-in last week

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Sabrina just broke a $1,000 bottle of wine. A 1953 Bordeaux.


NS

El Padrino said...

yeah that's a little bizzare
leaving a knife on the bed?
wtf

blue said...

didn't antoine walker get burglarized like Curry did too?

El Padrino said...

that's coming out of her paycheck

blue said...

kind of strange that some dude would come kicking into his bedroom guns a blaze

El Padrino said...

yup
and a bunch of other athletes
hell marcus camby's sister was raped i think and almost killed

jugdish said...

I have a machete by my bed...that isn't normal?

It sucks when you go to hit the snooze and you smack the blade of that instead...but it does wake you up.

hilary is my co-pilot said...

how did he break it deke?

did the owner go apeshit?

blue said...

I like your offer EP...better heat than anyone else so far.

I'm gonna think about it for a bit.

El Padrino said...

lets get it done

tem said...

my offer was great.

blue said...

tem did you make an offer?

El Padrino said...

wow bush is desperate
brokering mid-east peace talks

dummy, those people have been fighting for 800 years
it aint gonna work

Keith S said...

Because it matters in November

jugdish said...

lunch

hilary is my co-pilot said...

is the PHX hosting a regional this year?

tem said...

"tem did you make an offer?"

no

tem said...

yes! wvu made the bracketology.

blue said...

supposedly there is going to be another post season tournament this year for teams that don't make the NCAA or NIT tourney...pretty soon all 300 or so Division 1 teams will play in a postseason tourney.

Best wrecks of 2007 NASCAR season

hilary is my co-pilot said...

Quessssstion:

Do you watch MNF irregardless of the matchup?

I do.

Shammy : But, no: This game must have been absolutely brutal to watch. (I certainly didn't.)

hilary is my co-pilot said...

they could have done a better job with that montage, too many quick cuts.

tem said...

I liked the football in the mud.

tem said...

HUNGRY

JFreak said...

I actually quite enjoyed watching the game.

It falls under the "so bad it's good" category.

Plus, it's history. Going that long without any scoring? And the field conditions made it all the more intriguing.

El Padrino said...

i always watch MNF no matter what
not beginning to end mind you but every single game on MNF i watch at some point

El Padrino said...

are you questioning my sports knowledge in front of the ladies?

jugdish said...

I watch whenever I can. I was hoping for a 0-0 tie at the end of regulation for some overtime action.

El Padrino said...

i like bad weather football too
Hines Ward can play for me anyday of the week

blue said...

I agree with the "so bad it's good" theory, that's what got me watching in the 2nd half.

hilary is my co-pilot said...

If Shammy admits that he's not a sports fan I think he'd save himself a lot of grief.

Mills said...

I am freaking starving.

JFreak said...

And that punt just sticking in the ground?

I've never ever seen something like that.

blue said...

shamford chose not to post blue's comment today

JFreak said...

a shocking turn of events.

Mills said...

He didn't post one of mine yesterday about CM Fost and comment moderation (but I did say Pujols > A-Rod, so it was sports related).

and he hasn't posted my morning rip of CM's grammar today either.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"how did he break it deke?

did the owner go apeshit?"


Clumsy.

No.

hilary is my co-pilot said...

damn, that's a nice person not to lose his shit.

jugdish said...

funny

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

So, do the Skins get that cap relief Zeke wants, or what?

jugdish said...

WOOO...lunch!

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"damn, that's a nice person not to lose his shit."

Shit happens.

blue said...

""damn, that's a nice person not to lose his shit."

Shit happens."

that's what insurance is for

blue said...

the onion has it's on video news now too?

blue said...

*own

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

We don't insure alcohol.

hilary is my co-pilot said...

shit happens, but if its me losing a 1,000$ bottle of wine, or a 1,000$ anything, I'm at least calling someone a numbskull, at the very least.

hilary is my co-pilot said...

was he at least able to salvage any of the wine?

hilary is my co-pilot said...

no idear about cap relief deke.

Spaceman Spiff said...

bullshit

Spaceman Spiff said...

skins do get cap relief, no other compensation

blue said...

the amare sweepstakes have begun at LoF

El Padrino said...

my offer stands
im not jumoping through hoops comepeting for this guy
i offered enough i think

El Padrino said...

feng shui

El Padrino said...

today i dine with the General

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I wanna play the sweepstakes

hilary is my co-pilot said...

Hayden Panty

nothing special about the pic. She has great thighs, but I'm worried that she'll baloon up in a few years.

hilary is my co-pilot said...

spiffg - it's a dark day indeed.

El Padrino said...

hayden needs some tits
normally i wouldnt say that but i think they would make her shoot into a top 5 situation sometime down the line with them

blue said...

sweepstakes winner = EP

JFreak said...

blue is a liar.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I enjoyed last night's MNF game. Best game in weeks.

I'm still not sure why they weren't passing more.

blue said...

why am I a liar?

hilary is my co-pilot said...

nice deal.

you must be high on Wallace and Deng.

hilary is my co-pilot said...

what was freak's offer?

Keith S said...

"Shit happens."

Said the guy who won't spend more than $7.50 on a steak. If somebody ruined your $7.50 steak I bet you wouldn't say shit happens.

JFreak said...

EP got the best of that deal.

blue said...

the Howard/Childress offer was a very close 2nd place.

JFreak said...

My first was Aldrige for Stat.

Then Aldrige and Jermaine for Stat and Kirelinko

Keith S said...

What about Joe Johnson/Eddie Curry?

El Padrino said...

zeke i know you aint a fan but that AZ loss was horrendous

next year when they throw Clancy's Pendewhatever name around for a head coach gig i will remind everyone of last weeks game

El Padrino said...

where's my bouquet of flowers?

hilary is my co-pilot said...

EP you should hear the local sports talk - hilarious.

Cards fans are like Charlie Brown/Lucy : the Cards keep yanking the ball back as the fans line up for the kick - and they keep coming back for more.

what a brutal, brutal, loss.

and yeah, SF had season high in almost every offensive category I believe.

Keith S said...

Everyone at work is talking about how heartbreaking the Cards loss was. WTF?? It's the Cardinals. They've been doing this every year they have been here.

El Padrino said...

why was kurt the flirt throwing with a glove at home in a dome that's temp is 75 degrees?

irregardless he threw for 483 but just sayin, minor wth

blue said...

so Tony Romo is back to Jessica Simpson again huh?

blue said...

the cardinals are who we thought they were

Keith S said...

"why was kurt the flirt throwing with a glove at home in a dome that's temp is 75 degrees?"

God recommends you wear a glove.

blue said...

If you're banking on Kurt Warner to be the man, you're in trouble. He puts up great numbers but is a loser..

hilary is my co-pilot said...

kurts been wearing gloves all season.

hilary is my co-pilot said...

I'd pay 20$ to smell Tony's fingers after a night out with Jessi.

Keith S said...

"If you're banking on Kurt Warner to be the man, you're in trouble. He puts up great numbers but is a loser.."

He won a Super Bowl, right?

blue said...

so did Trent Dilfer, what's your point?

Keith S said...

I dunno

El Padrino said...

cmon kurt warner is a two time MVP
he hung in the pocket so long in st.loo waiting on routes to develop that it took years off his life

he's a football player

he's nuts and his wife is a looney toon but he was a great qb

and a winner

El Padrino said...

before the colts or todays pats the rams were the team to watch every weekend

Keith S said...

I'm not really a wine drinker, but is a $1000 bottle of wine really that much better than a $20 bottle?

El Padrino said...

"I'd pay 20$ to smell Tony's fingers after a night out with Jessi."

$50

El Padrino said...

not to me keef and im a wine drinker

El Padrino said...

zeke i hit u off with an offer on rich

blue said...

Warner was a winner for 2 years

El Padrino said...

your a fool

El Padrino said...

he was good for more than 2 years

Keith S said...

Elway was a winner for 2 years.

El Padrino said...

his career qb rating is 93
and he's gonna throw for over 25000 yards

El Padrino said...

i'm done with this discussion
you failed to argue your point on warner being a loser

class dismissed

hilary is my co-pilot said...

not sure if I'm up for that deal EP.

El Padrino said...

it's workable, throw something my way

blue said...

i'm putting together my case, homo..settle down


and I could give a shit about Elway, but up until 2 weeks ago he was the all time winningest QB in NFL history. And went to 5 superbowls.

tem said...

i am glad that i did not win the stat sweepstakes.

hilary is my co-pilot said...

EP - any 3 pt shooter not named Barbosa is available on my roster.

tem said...

shaun king had a pretty good record as a QB

blue said...

Kurt Warner's career record as a starter (including playoffs) 54-39 .580 winning percentage.

remove the 2 years that he was good and his record is 22-33 .400 winning percentage

blue said...

you can't blame him for playing on shitty teams, but outside of those 2 years, he's a loser.

tem said...

what about his AFL career, was he a winner there?

El Padrino said...

and remove your pants and your a lady

what's the difference

tem said...

what is his QB rating in the 4th QTR when winners shine?

El Padrino said...

warner is a winner, bottom line

El Padrino said...

nice tradin' witcha though blue

blue said...

"and remove your pants and your a lady"

ok weazy, call me short too

blue said...

Lunch

El Padrino said...

i dont recall weazy ever using that but if he did touche

Spaceman Spiff said...

warner and dilfer are not comparable

El Padrino said...

rip taylor

El Padrino said...

you will live vicariously through your madden character

hilary is my co-pilot said...

spiffg - the beat writer said the prorated portion of his bonuses will still count against the cap, but apparently they are small.

STT is depressing.

STT kilt LoV

Probably wrong choice of words there.

Keith S said...

Yanks are going to trade A-rod for Kobe, and then trade Kobe for Johan.

El Padrino said...

Yanks aint moving Joba
