Random Acts of Shifeness

Here is the latest batch of stuff that has left a mark on my grey matter.
  • I am hurt that most of you are like Mrs. Shife and think I tripped because I saw a hot chick. OK, I am not really hurt. It would have made more sense if it was a hottie wearing boob-hugging spandex, but I swear on Quincy’s long, velvety ears that it was a male jogger. And unless I drank myself gay over the weekend, I usually don’t get excited about men. Unless it is Christian Bale and then I might try out for the other team.
  • We have to run 8 miles this weekend so I might have to wear the blinders they give horses so I don’t have another Urkel moment as someone pointed out in the comments.
  • Having two nieces and two nephews in our house last weekend makes me no closer to a decision about wanting kids. Some days yes, some days no. I don’t know what we are going to do. I am thinking adopting a Swedish teenage girl might be our best option.
  • Speaking of the little ones, I watched more than my fair share of Dora the Explorer, Blue’s Clues, The Backyardigans, and the Wonder Pets last week. Really great stuff. I know all about teamwork now.
  • Sorry Mack, but Duke went down last night and it was a beautiful thing.
  • Speaking of hoops, I still don’t know how Gonzaga blew that game last night. It was there for the taking and they choked.
  • If you have not had the opportunity to see the movie “V for Vendetta” then you need to get your ass to the theatre. It is way cool. I know it is only the movies but can you imagine if the people really realized that we have the power. Like the movie said, “The people should not be afraid of the government, the government should be afraid of the people.”
  • Did anyone watch the season finale of “The Shield?” I wasn’t surprised who got killed but the way it happened was shocking.
  • Holy crap! We got a new episode of “Lost” this week and we got another one next week.

    That’s all folks, have a great weekend.


  1. I was totally orgasmic over "V," and not due to Portman alone. Great film, and one of the most humbling, thought-provoking movies I've seen. The only movies that has ever rendered me as speechless and deep in thought have been "Munich," "Schindler's List," and "Syriana."

  2. V for Vendetta was amazing, better than I had expected. I heard that it got really slow in the middle but I didn't find that. I did think the knife fight scene at the end was a little too Matrix meets Kill Bill though.

  3. Shife, I'm telling you dude, no kids is the way to go. I mean, shit, who needs kids when you have comenters?

    So your turnover dude is Christian Bale, huh? Interestin.

    You know, that would make a killer post idea! I could never pull it off (no balls) but if anyone would make it work it would be YOU, Shife!

  5. Doo Doo Doo Doo Da Dora! Dora Dora Dora the Explorer...Boots and Super Cool a lore lora. I know Dora all too well from my nephew and I am all set on the no kids thing.

    There are too many dogs out in the world that need to be rescued, loved and allowed to live a wonderful life. I would rather have a house full of dogs then kids.

    Though you and MrsShife would have beautiful little ones :).

  6. Having nieces and nephews might give you a little idea of what it's like having kids...but it's still not the same as having your own.

    I find having your own is much more stressful.

  7. My favorite wee show is "Backyardigans". My nephew becomes so mesmorized by the show, that everything stops. He stares at the screen blankly, with just a smile and you can see his lips moving to the lyrics of the music. Pretty neat children trick huh?

  8. Anonymous3/24/2006

    Um, yeah, that is "super cool explora Dora..." hellooooo.

    Anyhow Matt, I think you are totally ready. Those of us who have kids have days where we are happy and days where we are not. Kinda like having a spouse... hmmmmm I did NOT just say that :P

  9. Just for the sake of looking more intelligent and gramatically focused in my prior comment: "The only moves that HAVE ever rendered me as speechless..."

    Boy, when you read it as is at the top, I really sound like some asshole from the South, don't I?

  10. Can't wait to see V for Vendetta tonight! I'm a big fan of Alan Moore's stories.

  11. Good thing you didn't watch those "violent" cartoons like Tom & Jerry. You might think it's ok to go around hitting cats with frying pans or using mice for fish bait!

    As for Lost, I think Sun got preggers when she was "taken." The others seem obsessed with babies and children, so it would make sense that they would do that. But who knows where those crazy writers are going with this?!

    Think you might run into Eminem on 8-mile?!

  12. I agree with Christian Bale,he's fucking hot

  13. I keep telling you. No good can come from jogging!

  14. I bet you and the mrs would be great parents!

    I was so happy to see both Duke and Gonzaga lose on the same night, WOOHOO! don't like either.

    Don't watch Lost or the shield sorry

  15. I believe you when you say you tripped. I know you would never be gawking at another woman. You're different from other men. *coughbullshitcough*

    A Swedish teenager? Hmmm....well OK, just make sure she's 18 so you don't run into problems. :P

  16. I can't s-t-a-n-d Dora the explora. My favorite Sat morning cartoon is Lazy Town. I sing and dance to it, too.

    Don't think I'm kidding.

  17. They sure do love to spread out the LOST episodes, huh?

  18. Well I am definitely going to see that V for Vendetta movie!! It is like the third time you have mentioned it!!! I am going on Sunday!!!
