Chuckatize Me Cap'n

So far I have successfully 'Chuckatized' 12 people within the past 2 years. You may be wondering "Hey whats this terrific thing you are talking about?" Well Chuck is a show about a nerdy computer geek who works at a retail store called the 'Buy More.' When he inadvertly downloads the governments secrets into his brain, he is sent an NSA and CIA agent to protect him and use his knowledge to take town terrorists organizations flipping his world upside down.

This past Monday I had one of my closest friends over to watch the latest episode of Chuck season 3. It was Chucktastic, with Chicken wraps and 2L of chocolate milk mixed in with the perfect ounce of nerdiness from Chuck. I think its going to catch on! Its going to be the new Superbowl! Who needs football when you have 1-5 hours of Chuck depending on how many episodes you watch.

I have all the show hook-ups. From Lost, Bones, House MD, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Prison Break to Chuck. My suggestion? Chuck! If your 100% nerd then you will enjoy this hilarious story from Morgan, Chucks best friend to John Casey, Chucks handler. Am I promoting this show? Absolutely! Personally I think NBC should be paying me, but hey what can I say I like free-lancing. Ask and you shall receive

Extreme Happiness??

Have you ever had one of those days where your lazy the whole time at work, but the moment you punch out you get a boost of energy that electrifies your body? Good cause I haven't.

Just kidding, that is exactly what happened to me today!

Its amazing, one moment you feel like passing out on the till and putting a note on your back "be back in 15 mins" and the next minute your singing songs and dancing out to the parking lot. Just ignore the dirty looks you get, they may not understand at that moment, but sooner or later they will be laughing with you, not at you!

Several people today I actually convinced I had magical powers. I was thinking, really? I am dead! See me here smacking my head against your carts while randomly sticking a separator bar in between groceries? Actually......that's some talent right there! Lets see if you have good intuition!

When your extremely happy everything comes into focus! Its perfect. You can almost see where your future is going. Those puzzle pieces that you are always trying to fit in somewhere that doesn't fit, finally finds its spot in that big ocean!

5 things to do when your happy!

1. Dance. Do the Michaelina's or a newfie jig! Those are always fun!

2. Sing. People most likely don't want to hear you sing, but that makes it more fun! Watching people cover their ears makes you laugh harder!

3. Throw stuff. I love seeing peoples expressions when you throw things, especially at other people! Now I'm not talking about throwing a Cantaloupe at someone.....although that would be fun, but I can't afford a lawsuit.

4. Speeding! Muwhahaha who doesn't love peddle to the metal speeding! YES! But make sure you watch for flashing blue and red lights, I know their pretty but its an expensive pretty.

5. Bring out your lightsaber! Everyone cheers you on as you go for a one on one dual lightsaber war with a stranger. Just make sure you have Darth Maul's saber. Double sided! A BOO YA!

10 Ways to Deterime If Your a Nerd

So this one is for a friend. I personally look at myself as a nerd. Some people actually use the term Geek for me, but I really don't see a difference and the term Nerd just sounds less degrading. Here is 10 ways to determined if your a nerd.

1. Mario. If you have Mario on your car dashboard and your dream is to get the whole team together. Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Bowser.

2. Your highlight of your month is the release of a new video game. I would have to say that I am pretty darn excited for Assassins Creed 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction coming out for the computer!

3. Computer. When the first thing you do in the morning is turn your computer on, then you are a nerd.

4. Texts. Your texts to friends end up being about Harry Potter, Lego and Mario Brothers. Although I have to say those are the best texts.

5. Your favourite movies in life is Star Wars or Star Trek.

6. You freak out like a little girl who sees Robert Pattinson, when the newest issue of your favourite comic book is released.

7. You say things like "I'll wear my storm trooper costume" or "I know Kung Fu!"

8. You have a thing for shoes and hats. If you have 12 hats and 4 pairs of running shoes, then you have some series nerd problems like myself. Its only the nerds that I know that have this problem

9. If you have an OCD. Many people have an OCD but I find nerds like to have things a certain way. Like all the comics in alphabetical order, or their game cases in ways of height.

10. Sing. When your bored you sing either the Ghost busters theme song or make up a song about Mario based on the tune from Justin Timberlakes 'Sexy Back.'

My nerd ways might not be your nerd ways, so tell me what you thing is the nerdiest thing you have ever done.

Hope you enjoyed my ramblings of my mind

Dark Side of Things

Normally most people like to go through life thinking about the best situation, cause no one wants an unhappy ending. However I was brought to the realization yesterday that subconsciously some people are naturally protective of the people they care about. Most movies in Hollywood prove this fact, from Bruce Willis protecting his family in Die Hard to Gerald Butler revenging his wife and child's death in Law Abiding Citizen. However sometimes its not just the family members that we want to protect but also several of our friends.

I just so happen to be one of these people. I have been known in my family to have quite a temper. Most people outside the immediate family have never seen this side of me, which is for the best. However this can be seen easily if a person hurt someone I care about. This list of people I care about has just expanded in number by four this year. Some of the best people you will meet, all in one small place called work. Now I guess guys can take care of themselves in certain situations, so this is more geared I guess to my female friends.

Like I mentioned before I feel very protective over the people I care about. If someone were to emotionally hurt them then I would have to do my best in my language skills to emotionally hurt their 'ego.' Nail them down a couple notches. Now I have no problem with putting out the same amount of pain that was used, so you can only assume what would come next. If you guessed physical abuse then YOUR RIGHT! If someone felt the need to enforce their 'strength' to ANYONE I cared about, I would seriously have problems stopping myself from killing them. Maybe a bullet in the leg, or a 2 by 4 across the face will be enough to teach them a lesson not to mess with my friends or family again, but being able to stop myself in a heat of rage would be a big character building experience for me. In order to protect the people I care about from these irrational psychopaths I would have no problem spending a couple years in jail or a nice hefty fee to pay.

Cause if I ever had to make that type of decision again.....I would do it in a heartbeat.

Hope you enjoyed learning about the darker side of my mind.

Tough Choices

Many times in life you will come across a split path. Sometimes the paths may lead back to each other in the end, and sometimes they go in completely different directions. Which path to choose? Do you go out on a limb and follow a path that you want, but know that it may turn out horrible or do you follow what you know, and go with the other path?

It seems like in my life these split paths have been coming up a lot lately, and so far I think I have made the right choices, but others haven't really made it to that juncture yet where you have to choose. Meeting several new people from the place I work has brought these decisions to me, but non so far that has made me really have to sit there and contemplate what life's going to do for me. I mean so far I have met great people that I have a lot in common with. One of these people I highly respect as a person and a friend, just so happens to believe in some of the same stuff as myself whether through religion or just a personal preference. Although its not a very common attribute you come across, especially in some of the Church's here in Canada, which really disappoints me. However it makes it difficult when you have a 'path' to take between going and hanging out with certain friends when they see nothing wrong with drinking.

Recently as I have been getting older, it has always come across my attention that sooner or later hopefully I will meet someone that I can share my life with. Although thats the juncture that you have to stop and wonder if it will turn into one path once again or will this take your life in a completely different direction than what you always wanted your life to be like. For most people its hard enough trying to find someone like you, but being a Christian and believing what I do makes it all the more difficult for me. You could find someone completely perfect in many ways, but the part that could matter the most is the part where your different. Your decision could take you on the path you never saw yourself going. Sometimes that could be good, but I don't know if I would be willing to take that risk when there is a chance that I might deviate from my religion or cause problems later in life. I try to stay connected with Christ, but its hard sometimes when the outside world starts coming in and affecting your decisions.

I am just hoping that the person I highly respect I can look upon as a role model in life for sticking by your decisions and beliefs.
