Sundays With Bruce

How are ya?

How have ya been?

Long time no see.

How is the job? The family?

Ok enough of the Mr Rogers.


The weekend started out good enough. Movie night with BatMite on Friday night. Not too late to bed cause work on Sat.

Sat started out with work from 7-12 but what the hell I need the monies. Then went to pick up BatMite's friend to spend the night.
I loke to shop dont get me wrong but 3 the mall....with 2 11 year olds..... Nuff said
But I digress.

Then we come home to no power. There was a small storm that knocked down a tree in one of the backyards and the whole block was dark.
So after a late dinner we came home and decided before cancelling the sleepover due to.....NO FUCKING LIGHTS to light up the fire pit in back. The a good friend who move to Texas a few years ago was back in town so she came and sat by the fire.
Then almost on cue as the rain started and the fire dies the lights came back on. After getting her home and BatMite and friend in the shower cause I dont know after starting this day at 6 IN THE FUCKING MORNING..I was tired.

Sunday brought a birthday party for a good friends daughter, dropping off of BatMite at mom's a drink (maybe 2) for dad and the poker he was gonna play yesterday.

Now no work tomorrow for me so a day of tanning, poker and maybe, just maybe a nap.

Gods it sux to be me huh?

"I'm not givin up my soul today"


What a weekend. 1st off apologies to Contagion and Petey. I had some personal things come up and had to handle them before the shite hit the fan.

Sunday night I went of to my buddy Scrotum's house. He had just bought some patio furniture and "needed some help putting them together" IE drink some beer and sit in them.

Monday was frackin work then sleep after a few drinks.

Tuesday was the weekly poker night that I have with some co-workers. We have been on hold for a few weeks due to scheduling but we were back in full force last night. Glad to say I took second out of 6 of us!
Through the whole night though our host for the evening cracked open her liquour cabinet and put on some kick ass music and let the cards fly.

I know that there are a few of the 6 that might be nursing a headache today. Proud to say I am not one!!! Gods love a drunk!

The music that night ranged from Rob Zombie to a band called the HorrorPops. That's a line of theirs in the blog title. Check em out

Now off to work. Enjoy!

What a weekend.

Thursday, Fri, Sat, and now on Sunday my liver has been put through the paces.

Batmite is back with mom now until the move to some other city happens.

Went and seen the Hulk last night. I was impressed. Now Hulk is one of my favorite comic characters. (what Bruce? a Marvel character coming form someone in the DC universe? The nerve!)

I have liked the Hulk because from his fracked up childhood up to his becoming of the Hulk is a trip into the depths of a mans soul. I can relate in alot of ways given my fracked up childhood and the escape I found in the comics then in real life.

There were moments that nodded back to the tv show and the comics as well. Well worth the price of admission.

Ok kids now an afternoon of long island iced teas and poker!

It's not the years, it's the miles

Friday night

BatMite at a friends

What do I do?

Asleep by 9:30


If a team wins a game...does anyone care?

The Rock River Raptors erased any worries that they would pay for playing the league’s two worst teams twice each in the past month with Friday’s dominating 54-39 first-round playoff win over the Chicago Slaughter.

I hate to say this and it really kils me but I really dont care.

Monday, June 9, 2008


The roommate and I got a free gas grill last year from some neighbors that moved out. I am a charcoal man myself but hey free is free!!

Now all it needed was a new lp tank. A year later I finally went out and bought one.

After having to manually light the sucker (visions of going up like a 4th of July visual) I cooked some chicken breasts, strip steaks and a few burger and brats.

Lunch is hooked up for the next week.

It's good to be my friend at lunch time.

I'm Disgusted But I cant Look Away!

Bears release Benson following drunken driving charge

He He

I cant help but just shake my head in amusement.

The Bears are just cursed!

He He

"I apologize for making the poor decision to drink and drive during the early morning of Saturday, June 7th," Benson said in a statement.

Ummm Contagion........wernt we........ ummmmmmm

Where to start?

Wow. What a weekend. My liver is as hard as concrete today.

First off big thanks to Contagion for helping get me back online. Some kind of virus knocked me offline and after calling Comcast (fun) they told me the way to fix my problem was to get online and download a patch. After my silence for about 10 seconds the rep must have figured out that the words he read off of his screen made no sense.

To fix my problem of not being online, I must go online to fix. WOW!

So big props to Contagion for finding a fix!

Now back to this weekend.

Thursday Batmite went to her mothers for the weekend and I with a friend hit a local baseball game that just so happened to have $1 beers.

Friday. I think that I was still drunk when I woke up. Work was sucktactular as usual.
Contagion and I after twisting his arm headed down to Fritz's for a few. Again good times.

Saturday. Had the virus hack the crap out of the BatComputer so decided fuck it and start to drink. I headed with my friend K to the local OTB to put a bet on the Belmont Stakes. Didnt win SHIT! Then headed down to Caryles for a beer with Contagion, Petey, and Ktreva.
Then watched the last regular season Raptors game in a building that had no air conditioning on. NONE. No needless to say I had sweated out all that was drunk. SO what to do?

Head to Contagion's and drink!!

Sunday. My liver hurts but I am back online. Time for some POKER!!

Time Moves On While You Are Stuck In the Past

BatMite graduated 5th grade today. Instead of have Jr High start at 7th grade now they move them um in 6th.

The fact that she is going to a Chicago school next year made it more bittersweet for her knowing that this is the last time she will be in a school with these kids.

She is now off with her mom for the weekend.

I feel a binge comin on.

My 1st Time (Beer Review)


No offense to Contagion but after his Beer Review Fest the other weekend I have figured to do one of my own using some of the criteria that a few of us attendees came up with.

I will be reviewing LandShark beer from the Margaritaville Brewing Co out of Jacksonville FL.

The beer is I guess to be part of the Jimmy Buffett Empire.

The taste is liking to a cross of Miller Lite and Corona. 2 beers that I really like.

Appearence: Very clear and yellow.

Smell: Smells like beer

Taste: I frickin told you Miller Lite and Corona

Mouthfeel: Not EVEN gonna approach this.

NOw here are a few that we came up with at the Tasting

Belchability: Comes up pretty good and makes deep belches

Buzzability: It took about 4 to get me feeling pretty good. After 7..Hell Ya

Uninability: Had to pee after about 5.

Asslickness: Not really. If a girls ass tasted like this I would do it!

Over all a pretty good beer. One of my favorites this summer!

Again no offense to Contagion. Think of this as the low rent version!

Til next time True Believers!
