  1. how much extra for the midget made me laugh out loud that it hurt my wound. I think i popped a stich where my wisdom tooth was removed.

    Tune in later for my lists of 7's

  2. Sorry about that. I might have to put a disclaimer on my blog.
    Looking forward to your list, and I hope your wound heals up.

  3. Damn armaedes. That is an awesome list. I especially like the Kama Sutra book and your #3 on things I say most often.
    I don't think I am that popular so I am not worried about the 97 pages.
    Other David possiblities, David Justice because he did have sex with Halle Berry, David Duchovony because he is having sex with Tea Leoni and The X-Files, and Dave Chappelle because he is Rick James, bitch.

  4. 7 things I cannot do
    1. Shit twinkies - man I would be sooooo into bukake if people could do this.

    7 things I say most often
    2. Would you like to Super Size that?
    3. Do these pants make my ass look fat? - correlation?

  5. It really disturbs me that you can drink chardonnay but cannot bathe with that vomiting basset hound of yours...where's the love?

  6. I did this list of 7's on my blog, but yours is the best one I have read by far.

    A man that rescues basset hounds *sigh* if only you weren't married...this big boobed blonde that puts out would worship you ;)

  7. Quincy gets really frisky when he is in the water. He has a little Mississippi leg hound in him.

  8. Thanks blonde.
    I just love the hounds. I grew up with them and hate seeing them in the pounds. We only have one right now because Quincy will not allow us to have more than one dog in the house. We tried it once, and Mrs. Shife and I had to sleep in separate bedrooms because Caveman Quincy would not allow another dog in HIS bed.

  9. HA! funny 7 things you most often say. thanks for the laugh at work it's been a long day!

  10. Well, sideshow, I looked up bukkake and I would be signing up as well.

    Phats -- Glad I could make you laugh. Sorry about the Boilers, can't wait to see who gets your company.

    Nuttyblonde -- Well when I win the lottery and buy the Cardinals, I will give a special suite where you are in no danger of being harmed.

    I know a cool doctor who can hook you up with a laser shooting penis...

  12. You married your best friend? Awwww that is so sweet. What a lucky couple you are.

  13. alright, i'll post it in my blog-so that your comment section doesn't get too long.

  14. Hey
    Can we add you to our links? I love this blog it cracks me up everyday!

  15. BTW, been meaning to ask you Matt, when do you get first snowfall in Boise ?

  16. YUCK!! don't say the SNOW word

  17. Wow mrshife, you were a sports journalist. That is really interesting. Is the reason why you changed careers deep within this blog.

    Plus, you met Pat Tillman. That one has to stick with you the rest of your life, huh. I thought they made a mockery of all the jersey sales afterwards.

    It goes to show, that not many are ever notice as individuals in the grand scheme. So, to thine self be true, and be good to others. As that's all we can do.

  18. Phats -- Feel free to link me up. I have already added you my man.

    Hurricane -- I will get back to you about the snowfall. Boise actually doesn't get a lot of snow because we are down in the valley but the surrounding mountains get pounded.

    Totolehero -- Knock yourself out. I can't wait to see your list.

  19. Sorry Beo the answers you seek are not within this blog. Basically I hated the hours and wanted to actually see my wife. So I am now working in marketing for a real estate company. And I love it. Miss the sports some time but the blog is an excellent to keep the creative juices flowing. And meeting and speaking with Pat Tillman is something I will never, ever forget. He also signed a Sports Illustrated article for me that I proudly display next to his jersey.

  20. I got around to doing this today buddy. I posted it on The Life and Times for all to review.
