Moving on Up....

Thinking about moving this blog. I know, I know. Both of you must be crushed. 

I think I've found a better solution for posting some random things, as status quo. Don't worry - Mikey Likey is coming with me too....

(if you are wondering wth is Supertramp - Google "Into the Wild" and if you still don't get it, then you are missing a much bigger picture)

I can't believe this. They forgot my birthday.

Let’s start with the bad. If you were a team Andy and I supported this past weekend, we apologize for the crappy luck. The Wings are still my favorite team – doesn’t hurt that they boast the title of one of the best sports franchise in history. Red Wings have won the most Stanley Cup championships (11) of any NHL franchise based in the United States.

And the 24 Hour Le Mans. We were all ‘team Audi’ but this year they broke their 5-year winning streak to Peugeot. Audi was racing their R15 for only the second time. I think it makes the racing better in the end to finally have some competition.

On to ze good. More sports action continued for Birthday Magic Weekend. We went to the Red Bull Air Race. Smoke on. I realized a few things- pictures do not showcase the full breadth of the event. The planes are sick. You have to be there to believe it. Red Bull also knows how to throw an event. Mad props for amazing fans, set-up and  the drinks of course. It was a lot of fun and I have the best white trash tanline to show off to boot. Costa Rica has helped me reached an entire new tanning plateau folks. These pilots are looooooo-aded. Major bank to have a practice airfield in your backyard.

In other news Roo and I are contending for most allergy medicine taken by a couple. Welcome to Michigan in bloom.  I have also been waking up like an old lady - at 5 am I’ll wake-up ready for the day. I think Indy is doing some Jedi mind tricks on me in my sleep.

In case you were counting, week two of tooth torment continues. I have another week of this crap before I go back, how is that even fair? My Milk Toof makes me-ef feel better.

Because it's not worth winning if you can't win big!

Shut the front door. Seriously I am in some serious pain here kids. Sorry, I want all the sympathy votes I can get.

BIG game tonight for the Wings. Please Moose, whatever you do, don’t turn it on. We have a chance to win the cup and media coverage around tonight’s game has been OK but I would really appreciate leaving the Hossa saga out of it. However, I do miss: During last season’s finals, Hossa, a trade deadline acquisition, led the Penguins in scoring. His 7 points on 3 goals and 4 assists were more than Sidney Crosby’s and Evgeni Malkin’s totals, and Penguins fans looked forward to having him for another run at the Cup.

I am sure CNN and other will cover NBA finals crap. And reason 7,890,998 NBC has crapped up the TV coverage for the cup. NBC will not rescind the game rights so that fans can show support at the Joe tonight. LAME. I am sure if Princess Crosby had it the other way, someone would figure out how to make it work.

Yeah yeah, he looks pretty crappy.

Detest ze dentist. Not 1, not 3, not 7 and not even 8 shots were enough to numb me for my crown. I spent Saturday in some serious ‘uncomfortableness’ to say the least. I honestly quit counting shots after nine. The reasons why I needed that much juice is probably due to the amount of meanness I exert, but ‘Dr Nick’ said it was due to me being 1 out of 2,000 people with a wicked nerve in the right wrong place and a fast metabolism, which continued to burn off all the good stuff quickly. Regardless, the side effects of the shots included severe Chris Brown attack swelling, lethargy, irritability and crying at just about everything. Ahh, another day around my house.

I recovered Sunday for a really nice trail run and an hour of getting spanked at tennis. Damn you Fed, you make it look like fun. There is nothing wrong with a good public cry. Evidently I mimic the ol’ tw-hand Monica Seles swing. Blame softball.

And yes, the Wings aren’t exactly disappointed to have Datsyuk back on the ice. Nice fat penguin egg served up on Saturday. Thank you for not watching Moose, seriously.

We did win tickets to this weekend’s Red Bull Air Race. We were at a bar and you had to shoot a little paper airplane through 2 orange cones about 5 – 10 feet away from you. In order to win a ticket. We watched a bunch of people epic fail, then the engineer himself gets up there and shoots 6 for 6. I was a weenie and it took a few other people going before I would attempt. Andy figured out how to make the plane fly and his method helped me sink 7 for 7. I got to get that kid to a carnival. Birthday magic might be at the race, we also have LeMans so we’ll see what he feels like.

Here’s a good one – Tummy Rumbles:
As food, liquid and gas move through your digestive tract, your stomach muscles and intestines contract and cause rumbling noises—borborygmi is the scientific name. Everyone’s stomach makes noise during digestion, but if you have extra-loud rumbles, a teaspoon of olive oil or a cup of herbal tea with lemon may help ease them, says Dr. Plasker.

Can this myth be taken a step further - Why the f does my stomach sound like the soundstage for Jurassic Park when I am in a very important meeting or by a hot guy?

Are you sitting down kids? I have some pretty important breaking news. The snozberries aren’t snozberries. Crunchberries are not real.

On May 21, a judge of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California dismissed a complaint filed by a woman who said she had purchased "Cap'n Crunch with Crunchberries" because she believed "crunchberries" were real fruit. 

Someone better tell this chick to quick to lay off of me Lucky Charms. Those marshmallows are magic!

Whatever you do, don't tell Geraldo.

I hate. hate. hate. hate. hate. hate. loathe the dentist. Love being lecured about my ‘nutrition as a college kid’ at the same time. F* you very much. Hurumph.

This makes me happy.  YouTwitFace.

High-tech Star Wars toys will be in stores any day now. The toys can talk and are interactive, so they can be easily distinguished from Star Wars fans

If you had any doubts that tough-guy Bear Grylls was putting on an act for his Discovery show Man vs Wild, the episode Men vs Wild featuring non-outdoor man Will Ferrell put all the ‘maybe he’s a fake’ whispers to rest. It’s not just Bear’s accent that Will manages to make fun of along the trek through the ‘gla-ciairs.’ For those hiding under a rock, Will was in the wild to pimp out Land of the Lost.

After being dropped from a helicopter in the far north region of Sweden, the unlikely duo will spend 48 hours rappelling down frozen waterfalls, looking for food, making their own snow shoes, trying to stay warm and munching on reindeer eyes.

Bear really makes everything look so effortless and then Will does the same maneuver and it’s an epic fail. Granted, Will ain’t the smallest of actors. The show proves Baer knows his shi* and definitely knows when someone else could be in danger. Little bugger probably does stunts on the show all the time without us realizing how incredibly crazy skilled he is.

Bear has a great list of the best moments of the show, including  ‘Being mistaken by Will for his wife in the middle of the night.’ There was a neat moment in the episode when Will seemed to be acting ‘normal’ and he literally looked in awe of nature at how quiet and peaceful it was.

Please. Do not. Get me. Started. All I’m saying…six men on the ice for almost 30 seconds and a piss poor Power Play. This is what happens when the best of the best collide. Pucks out.

Forget Twitter, I'm on the CB!

Believe the hype. The first Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien was insanely funny. Canando did an amazing job. I enjoy his humor regardless, but he was spot on with the delivery. Circle! Circle! Circle!

Will Ferrell wasn’t too shabby as the opening guest.

And seriously, the overnight success of Chaco Taco must have been major.

The Beard is Back. A rough tradition around here this time of year. The Detroit Red Wings and their fans will celebrate a long-standing and unique hockey tradition by welcoming back their playoff beards as the Wings begin their defense of their 11th Stanley Cup Championship. Franzen gets my vote, his seems to be the having the most luck of the series. Show this to Cindy Crosby and his Backstreet Boys sideburns.

Dog-O-Matic, the automatic dogwashing machine is one of many on a a list of The World’s 10 Weirdest Vending Machines. Anybody else curious about this torture chamber machine? How does the dog breathe in there? I’ve seen Indy try to get out from under the covers - this wouldn’t be pretty. “The longest part is the drying. The dogs don’t seem to get bored. They just sit there and they come out clean.” Sure looks like this pup is just hanging out?!

Also making the list, some of the richest and highest vending machines on the market. From the Rolls Royce-o-Mat to the Marijuana To Go. Is there a Marijuana Sit Down establishment we’re missing?
