Jessica Simpson Is Driving Me Crazy!

I hold Jessica Simpson personally responsible for everything that is wrong with the world.

Okay, not really, but that woman is going to be the end of me. So let's start with this: my wife Nicole loves Jessica Simpson. She watched the show "Newlyweds", she has her CD's, and she reads everything she can find about her. Now there's nothing really wrong with that. This is where I start to lose it.

Jessica Simpson bought a Louis Vuitonne purse/carry bag for $1500 to carry around her little dog in. A purse that costs more than my rent! Now Nicole wants a little dog of her own. Not just to have a dog, but so she can buy a purse like Jessica Simpson's and carry around the dog in it. It's insanity, I tell you!

Everything that Jessica Simpson does, Nicole wants to do. Everything that she buys or designs, Nicole wants. It's driving me crazy. I'm really thinking about winning the lottery just so Nicole can buy all of these things and I don't have to hear about the brand of hair spray that Jessica uses.

But what can I say. I love Nicole, so I'll just suck it up and deal with it. Hey, she's got to listen to me ramble on about Firefly, so I guess we're even.

For Werzbowski

My friend Dave lost his dad earlier this week to cancer. I sat down and wrote out a little tribute for him and his dad. Dave goes by the pseudonym Wersbowski.

Go here to read the tribute, and pray for him and his family if you will.

Sin City

My friend Corban and I saw Sin City last weekend.

Great movie! A bit gory in some parts, but I can easily overlook that for the movie that was wrapped around that. It was basically a trio of stories, all tied together in one way or another. Mickey Rourke was perfect in his role. "That's a nice coat. It would be a shame to get any blood on it. Why don't I hold it for you." Clive Owen surprised me in his role, different for him. Very well played on his part as the tough guy determined to defend his girlfriend's honor. Bruce Willis played the typical Bruce Willis role, but as always, he did it well.

So many stars, so many sexy women, so many bullet-ridden bodies.

Oh, and my favorite scene: "Would you look at that! It's right through me!"

Go see it, you won't be disappointed. You can check out the official site

I've never read Frank Miller's graphic novels that the movie is based off of, but I think I'm gonna have to pick them up now!

Testing the Waters...

Yeah, I know everybody else says that (see title) when they post for the first time, but it's true. I am here testing the waters. I've been hanging out at FireflyFans.net for over a year now, and I keep seeing everyone with a blog, so I figured, what the heck. I've got thoughts-a-plenty, why not post them for the whole world to see.

First, a little tip of my hat and a moment of silence for my friend Werzbowski, who just lost his father to cancer. You've always got a friend here.

On to other things, I've been writing fanfic for only about a year, but I've already got an ongoing story up at FireflyFans.net. It's a Firefly fic, of course, but I've got my own characters introduced. It's dramatic and all cliffhangery. Check it out, you'll be glad you did! Start with Destiny and go from there!

As far as everything else goes, right now I'm going crazy at work. There's 3 of us here, but there's work for 6 or more. We're goin' nuts!!!!

Oh well, I'll live.

Until next time!!

Keep flyin'!
