Alanis Morissette blew up in the 90s with her “Jagged Little Pill” album, led by the single “Ironic.” Now, I realize almost all of the instances she describes in the song aren’t technically what the dictionary describes as ironic, but I don’t care. The song is fucking fantastic. And to be quite honest, so is the rest of the record. Which is why it is one of the biggest selling records of all time. Anywhere. Ever. And, she is Canadian! So everyone who takes issue with the content of this song – SUCK IT! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jne9t8sHpUc
Wrestling is wacky. Here’s a reason why: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YVUSrNylZI Fucking stupid. No place in wrestling for this. Egotistical Vince McMahon. Idiot. Wrestling is wacky.
. I was introduced to gambling at a very young age. Almost dangerously young. Actually I would definitely say dangerously young as I just re-mortgaged my house to pay off debts to my bookie. That was a lie, but I did start gambling when I was about 6. I lived behind a convenience store during a large part of my childhood years and the owner graciously (foolishly?) allowed me to purchase tickets if no one else was in the store. Enough said. Every year for Christmas, I would receive a couple of the holiday gift pack lottery scratch tickets. A winner in every pack. Now, I never won more than 20 bucks, but still. I was 8. So it was a big thrill. Did your parents buy these for you? Do you think my mom and fake dad were horrible people for introducing me to a potentially life ending addiction so early in my life? Get at us!
As I begin my challenging month of physical activity which will include 5 gym visits a week and one session of the high cardio ‘Insanity’ workout, I am reminiscent of ‘Tae Bo.” Tae Bo is a total body fitness system that incorporates martial arts techniques such as kicks and punches. It was created in the early 90’s by the legendary Billy Blanks. I never tried it, because I was a fat child, but it looks like an intense workout. Just the type of motivation I am going to need to kickstart my month of physical domination. Did you ever do Tae Bo? If I don’t die of a heart attack from my ‘Insanity’ exercises, maybe I will tackle Tae Bo next! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7Ke0oV1G6g
Every year by the end of November, my mom or fake dad would bring me home one of these awesome creations. The pieces of chocolate were so tiny, but so good. And it was such a thrill for a twenty…. 10 year old to search for the next day of the month and open up the slot. I might just buy one of these for myself this year. Just for Nostalgia’s sake.
