RTT: To All The Money Makin' Playas Up In Harlem

randomtuesday

Some of you were concerned that I had died recently since I haven't posted since last Thursday. I really appreciated that so I'm going to assume it was out of concern and not a secret wish to urinate on my grave which I wouldn't recommend because it could get you charged with public indecency or something like that. If you could angrily pour a bottle of scotch over my grave like Martin Blank though, that would be awesome.


Maybe not this $15,000 bottle of Macallans. Actually, it was just a busy weekend. My mom came to town so we spent a lot of time frantically trying to make the house look like someplace children are being raised and not an abandoned crack house.



From designer Sotirios Papadopoulos

"A striking credenza, with a photo-realistic, luminous image of the moon printed on its surface.

Coated with ELI (Eco Light Inside), an eco-friendly material developed by the designer, which creates a realistic, glowing effect when the lights go out."




Ok, that's only partially true. My mom really was in town, but I was also just feeling lazy.


Ok, this video is just over six minutes long so you may or may not want to leave it for later, but it's good. Do you know who Rick Hansen is? Twenty-five years ago he rode his wheelchair around the world to raise awareness for people with disabilities and to raise money for spinal cord research. Want to see him bungee jump?


I stole this off Joanne from Moving Forward-Half Speed, but it's ok, I told her I was going to steal it and that makes it all ok.

In honour of our host, Keely the Un Mom, and care of the University of Florida, a "Disaster Preparedness Simulation Exercise" for a zombie attack.

Oh, and after a month of trying I finally got called for an interview.

  3. Isn't it amazing how we turn our normal lives upside down to try to please our Mothers?

    I saw a story this morning about a guy who bungee jumped over water and his foot harness came off. They have video of it. He lived.

  4. I lke a crack house with that "lived in" look, but that's just me :)

    Bro, if I had $15,000, I'd totally buy that Macallan's so we could toast the interview. Afterwards, of course.

    Good luck!

  5. Good luck on the interview. Try to fight the urge to make the interviewer hold up a sign while you snap pictures.

    The moon thing is pretty cool when it's on but when it's off, it kind of looks like a corroded piece of furniture.

  6. Booyah! Hope the interview goes well.

    Oh, and very classy man-van.

  7. Let's see. . . if you don't have a job and you post once in five days. . . if you DO get a job, does that mean you'll post like once in five months?

    'Cause I think we'd miss you. . .

  8. Good luck at the interview. I wouldn't mention that you live in a crack house with the moon. They might not understand.

  9. I am glad that you are not deceased! Ceasing to exist! Oh, this is turning into the dead parrot skit now...

  10. Congrats on the job interview!!

    Great video, it's well worth the 6 minutes. My favorite part? The sigining of the liability waivers..brilliant!

  11. Congrats on the call!

    And now I love you forever for that Grosse Pointe Blank reference.

    Sigh, Martin Blank. Probably my favorite John Cusack character EVER!

  12. Congrats on the job interview! I hope it goes well!

    I like Irish's idea for the $15,000 bottle of Macallan's. Better to drink it than pour it over anyone's grave!

  13. Wow, that video was SO cool! I'd never do it though. Never ever ever. I just flipped out just watching them flip out.

    Kick ASS on the job interview! Absolutely.

  14. That credenza is way cool!!

    WooHoo on the interview!! Break a leg, or knock 'em dead, or um, do something that will massively impress them and make them want to hire you on the spot. Whatever it takes. Maybe with legos. :)

    We'll be doing a frantic cleansing of our crackhouse before Saturday when the FIL is coming up for a visit. ;)

    Happy RTT!

  15. I wouldn't want to waste good Scotch on your grave, or any grave for that matter, but I would happily pour some watered-down value lemon squash...

  16. Way to go on the interview, that's a super way to celebrate not being dead.

    That credenza is kinda freaky. My son has a night light that projects the planets onto his ceiling. It's kinda weird to go in there in the middle of the night and have Mars staring at me.

  17. I absolutely love that moon and how it glows! Very awesome.

    I also like the angrily pouring scotch over your grave, sounds like fun!

  24. Congrats on the interview! I DO hope you find a job, but you will be missed if you don't keep up the posting!
    I'm anxiously awaiting the next Stormtrooper installment...

  25. I hope this pesky job thing doesn't interfere with your blogging.

  26. In the interview if they ask you why (about anything) and you can't think of an appropriate answer, just say "To increasing my killing power." You don't even have to give me credit for that.

  27. Felicitations on the interview!

    Also? I may need that credenza to live.

  28. I love rick mercer. I've learned a lot about Canada, it's people and their different accents from watching The Mercer Report.

  29. Break a leg on the interview! And if they don't hire you, break theirs!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Now that van looks cool.

    And congrats on the interview.

  31. good luck with the interview..and hte video was hilarious...i love when he is dangling over the gorge and he says, "Oh wow, I can't feel my legs" LOVE him!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Good luck on the job front. Any chance it's a marketing job for Lego because you'd nail that.

    ReplyDelete
  33. You don't sound thrilled about it...

    There are a lot of big words in that zombie preparedness report. All you need are four: "aim for the head".

  34. i love that credenza! of course, to own it i'd need to be one: rich and two: have scotch to pour in pretty glasses and an ice bucket. for my high-profile guests of course.

    ReplyDelete
  35. awesome video, congrats on the job interview!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Abandoned crack house...ha...you funny.
    I've sky-dived (sky-dove? sky-diven?) once and it was absolutely the craziest, most fun, out of body experience ever. I totally recommend it to everyone!
    Keep us posted on the job front, so we can all drink in your honour when the big day comes...shit, I'll just drink in your honour period. :)

  37. That credenza is strange. Speaking of the moon, what's up with NASA bombing it this morning?

Come on, sailor. I love you long time.
