What's up?

I think I am finally in the last stage of my grieving process, and now I can get back to work on this blog. I admit that it has kind of sucked lately and I do apologize. So let’s get on with it.

I have been spending a lot of time with myself lately. Yes, the restraining order expired. Every time I look in the mirror there I am. Every time I shower guess who? Every time I get in the car there I am. Well you get the picture. I decided to take advantage of the situation and said to myself what is going on in your world.

Enjoy or not. I am still not sure if this is actually worth publishing. Maybe I should have just sang“I Remember You” by Skid Row to that Asian couple. Oh well.

What are you reading? “Into the Wild”

What made you smile today? Thinking about the fat basset taking care of Mrs. Shife because she is at home sick.

What food are you obsessing over right now? Cinnamon bread made by some outfit called Bainbridge Island. I am seriously thinking about shooting up the stuff. I want to do bad things with this bread. OK that's enough. I am getting a little carried away.

What made you sad today? I learned that someone I knew passed away.

What made you kinda gay today? Unicorns and The Final Countdown. Enough said.

What did you say? Madness takes its toll. Please have exact change.

What are you thinking? Give away what you want to receive. It is a line from a song but I like it as philosophy for life.

What food brought the underpants lion out of captivity today? Hot and spicy pork rinds. Whoa Nellie. There was some global warming in my office.

What movie is HBO abusing you with this month? “Blades of Glory.” I think I have watched it 79 times in the past 2 weeks. Did you know that Chazz Michael Michaels the only skater to win four national championships and an adult film award?

WTF!?! Seriously WTF!?!

What are you looking forward to? Softball season starts next Monday.

What are you not looking forward to? Waking up Tuesday morning. I will be sore all over and bitching about how old I am.

What movie are you going to watch next? “There Will Be Blood.” Unless “Blades of Glory” is on HBO again.

What is a good excuse for being late to work? Actually, I've been here for over 20 minutes, big guy -- I was just out chillin' in the van waiting for the end of the live version of 'Freebird.'


  1. Cool! I'm first today. I popped your blogger cherry. Hope you hump day goes well.

  2. Shife, you magnificent bastard. Stay away from the pork rinds man. Seriously.

  3. That used fist really made my morning. LOL @ "slightly used". Gotta love Hollywood, that is, if you don't already live or work there. I worked for a company there 4 years.... Bleh.

  4. Keep writing, Mr. Shife. Keeping writing.

  5. that fucking rubber fist sure gets around... i leave it alone for five minutes and now its in hollywood...

    *grumbles something about latex and fisting self*

  6. that fucking rubber fist sure gets around... i leave it alone for five minutes and now its in hollywood...

    *grumbles something about latex and fisting self*

  7. I'm probably too late on the fist, three phone numbers already torn off.

  8. mime stabbed/impaled by unicorn... where in the hell do you find this stuff?

  9. Hmm I enjoyed this blog entry. I was confused at times but I enjoyed it. I cancelled HBO since I am not a big movie person, now I am sad I am missing all the showings of Blades of Glory

  10. I would actually be afraid of catching something from that sign.

  11. Sweet Pea? That made you more than just "kinda" gay......

  12. Wow, do you realize you have almost 6500 profile views? That sounds like a lot to me. Just fyi.

  13. pfizer has all sorts of stuff to cheer you up. and lots of it is coming off patent.

  14. I heard "Final Countdown" on the way to work this morning and thought of you.

    Why that song, may I ask??? Of all the bad 80s hairband music, why that song???


  15. I'm glad that you are happy today. I had some pork rinds that gave me gas--I've avoided them since.

    hehe...you seem to always say what I have thought recently -was wondering why HBO and any other channel on cable for that matter continue to wear out a movie so much so that you could act it out yourself in a heartbeat!

    I didn't really like Blades of Glory but now I find myself laughing at it all the time - I must be delirious...

    Into the Wild made me cry like a new born baby. God I love that movie. I've even bought the soundtrack. Eddie Vedder is now my hero.

  20. Well we share something in common. The Official Seal of Coolness. You deserve it. Me? I'm still trying to figure out what the hell she was thinking! However, we do share something else. Lurking. I know you do it and I do too. I've lurked on your blog a long, long time. I didn't come out because I didn't think I could handle you AND Inner Voices at the same time! But now that I'm "Cool," what the hell? I'll take on the challenge. Apparently that seal has some sort of power. I feel more confident! Okay, it's official, I love this blog.

    Oh, and honey, UNC went down with UCLA. Here, let me dry that tear and visa versa. We're gonna be okay. Right?


    P.S. You made one comment I adore, "Give away what you want to receive." Beautiful.

  21. Sure makes me want to cancel HBO.
