The good, the bad, and the ugly

Packers v. Cowboys @ Dallas – November 29, 2007

The good: It was a good game. My biggest fear was that the Cowboys were going to make it a blowout and that didn’t happen. And the fact that we could keep it a close game without two of our best players (KGB and Woodman) and with Favre getting injured, I think that says a lot about our team. I’d like to see how well Dallas would play without d-bags Romo and TO. And Rogers did a really good job especially since he’s only taken, what, two snaps this whole season? It gives me hope that when Favre does call it quits we will still be a strong team. We are a young team and we are a good team. I really believe that if we meet Dallas again in the playoffs, even if it is in Texas, if we have a healthy team (and Harris actually steps in up a notch!) we will win.

The bad: Favre was not on his game and then he got injured. That sucks.

The ugly: I believe my love affair with Favre is well documented, but even I get sick of hearing announcers fawn over him like he’s the second coming of Christ. And even though he did not play well it was expected because he never plays well in Dallas. EVER. He’s 0-9 there. But at least when people start talking about how great Favre is they are basing it on something. Favre has proven that he is an amazing quarterback. One of the best ever. I mean, come on, he’s 500-years old and he’s playing as well as he did in 1997. But the way that stupid Bryant Gumbel was jacking off to Romo’s name last night was so disgusting. I think he’s in training to be as bad as Madden. ‘Apparently’, the Packers scored a first down? It was a 19-yard play, you blind motherfucker! Sure, Romo’s good but this is his second year and he wasn’t that impressive! Not to mention that he is neck in neck with Brady for the title of Biggest Douche in the NFL. You don’t cream your pants over a second year quarterback. And I am really hoping that one of my four readers will have a better name for Romo than ‘Homo Romo’ because I hate it when people say that. There is no need to insult the entire gay community. And I’m sure that someone creative has something better than that.

Things I Learned Over Thanksgiving:

1. I don’t like turkey. I have no idea why it’s taken me so long to realize that, but I am not a huge fan. I’ll take pork over poultry any day. And apparently I also like ‘gamy’ meat – venison, buffalo, pheasant. Anyone who says that shit isn’t amazing doesn’t know how to cook or hunt.

2. Packer games live are even better than Packer games on TV. And tailgating is my new favorite sport.

3. I am above average when it comes to weight gain over Thanksgiving. I am pretty sure I read somewhere that the average American only gains about 3 pounds over the entire holiday season. I am pretty sure I surpassed that in one meal. There is a reason I left the land of fried cheese and brats.

4. Blogging is only fun when it’s wasting time at work.

5. There are very few people that I even remember from high school much less want to hang out with when I am back in Milwaukee.

6. Somerset, PA – and all the surrounding rinkie-dink towns can kiss my ass. If I never experience holiday traffic in Pennsylvania again it will be too soon.

Why you've gotta love the political season...

Have you seen the "SwiftKids for Truth" ads yet? Effing hysterical!

I’ve rubbed elbows with some pretty impressive people the last two weeks. It’s not really the people I’m impressed with, just the fact that I am meeting them. I’ve been working on a national youth conference for the last few months at work and it took place the first weekend in November. It was somewhat of a headache working on this, not because of the actual event, but because I work with a bunch of dumbasses. And I have to admit, I totally expected it to be a bust. What can I say? It’s a coalition of over 30 different youth and environmental organizations. We couldn’t even agree on a name for the conference so I didn’t really have high expectations. But I am happy to say that I was wrong. We were aiming for about 3,000 students from all over the country and ended up with over 6,000! I thought the best speaker we’d be able to get was some random student from a liberal arts school in Vermont. But then Rep. Ed Markey, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Ralph Nader, and author and founder of the “Step It Up” campaign Bill McKibben showed up. And it was covered on Hardball and MTV and Discovery, and it was mentioned in Time magazine. And I can’t help it, I’ve got to get sappy here - when I was actually standing on the Hill surrounded by students that actually care and I was watching students from Alaska and Florida and Arizona and Michigan gearing up for over 2,000 separate lobby visits – it felt like a movement. The energy was palpable and after years of saying we were going to start engaging students – we actually were. It was inspiring and uplifting and it really does give me hope that we might be able to organize and truly make a difference.

I so desperately needed something to be proud of too. Working on global warming issues every day can be so daunting. And depressing. And I think it’s crucial to be optimistic in this field. I mean, if you don’t think anyone can make a difference, what’s the point?

My other brush with fame was courtesy of free tickets to the DC premiere of Lions for Lambs. Now, the movie sucked and I hate Tom Cruise, but he was there and he came with Katie. Robert Redford was there too. And Lynda Carter, but I am not really sure why she was there. And best of all, there was free soda and popcorn! Can’t get much better than that!

Hot! Hot! Hot!

I don’t normally blog about sex, mostly because I am so rarely having any but I just couldn’t help myself today. Last night I had the best sex dream ever. I assume that most women and some men probably fantasize about Johnny Depp or Taye Diggs or that hot guy from The Fast and the Furious that never made another movie worth watching. And there is nothing wrong with that, all those guys are well worth getting off to. Usually when I have a sex dream though, it rapidly deteriorates into a nightmare because I end up doing the guy up in finance or David Gest or someone else that makes your skin crawl. I wake up in a cold sweat and have to reassure myself that you can’t get herpes from your dreams.

But last night, last night was the way sex dreams are supposed to go. I got to have sex with Brett Favre and he was well worth the wait. That butt. Those arms. That man is so unbelievably hot. I am definitely a big fan of any guy with well defined arms. I woke up and wanted a cigarette. Then I tried to will myself back to sleep to continue the dream, but that never happens. And I want to know why. The last time I had a good sex dream was back in 1992 when I dreamt about Luke Perry. I was so in love with Dylan McKay that I had a life-sized poster up in my bedroom and I might have made out with it once or twice. But that was a thirteen-year old sex dream, before I knew what sex could be like, so that hardly counts. Luke introduced me to sex dreams, but Brett has definitely set the bar, and he set it pretty high. So if anyone has any good suggestions on how to make yourself have great sex dream, please fill me in. God knows I need it.
