SQOTW Part 2

It is back after a very long hiatus - Stupid Question of the Week. Unfortunately, Sexual Quality of the Welsh never really took off.

So if money or time or babysitters or phobias were not an issue, what would you do for 30 days? Well I would travel to the Australia's Gold Coast and pay someone to teach me how to surf. One of the reasons I have never have learned to surf is because I live in a land-locked state and I have an irrational fear that I am going to be a Great White shark's appetizer. And I picked the Land of Down Under because many people say that the Gold Coast is the place to go to surf.

So dear readers what would you do?
Or you can just look into the little man's eyes and tell him if he is going to have a brother or sister? Right now the polls are running in favor of a girl.

Random Acts of Shifeness

  • Hey Derek, sprechen sie dick? That is a line from the movie "Step Brothers" and I really want to tell a few people that. I am 41 frickin' years old and I do not want to do with family drama. Grow the hell up, quit acting like you are 12, and lay off the passive-aggressive juice.
  • Speaking of drama, anyone else feel like a bunch of teenagers are running things in DC? Grow a pair, do your job, and quit playing the blame game with the media.
  • It took a few episodes but I finally warmed up to "Wilfred."
  • Hard to believe I am going to be the father of 2 - well 3 if you count Tank - in about 3.5 months. Still seems surreal that another Baby Shife is on the way.
  • Mrs. Shife is looking forward to meeting Baby Shife but she is not enjoying being 6-months pregnant in the middle of summer. As she has mentioned she is not exactly "glowing" this time around.
  • Sploosh sploosh
  • FTP or find the positive is my new mantra. I post some positive messages on Twitter during the week and do my best to be a glass half-full kind of dude. We also put a quote board in the bathroom to help remind us to don't worry, be happy.
  • Does anyone else get bored with the Internet? I have several sites that I hit on a daily basis but after I am done, I am done. Does anyone have some website recommendations?
  • Alright I am going to place a gay ad for a certain relative so he gets some really neat phone calls. I guess that is not finding the positive but it is funny. And sometimes funny is good medicine.

Can I get a do-over for the week?

I am having one of those weeks where I get excited that I finally broke down and bought some new white t-shirts. Then when I get home to open the package I realize the mistake I made when I hold the shirt up to my chest and it does not even cover my 13-pack. That's right I bought boy's t-shirts instead of men's. Good times. That basically sums up how my week is going. I will post a a more uplifting post when I am capable of buying the right size t-shirt. Have a good weekend.

Random Acts of Shifeness

  • "Horrible Bosses" is definitely worth the price of admission.
  • I heard the sweetest words ever from Kyle this week as he said "I love you" to me.
  • Ordered a swab kit from DKMS Americas and sent it back to see if I could possibly be a bone marrow donor to help someone out that really needs it.
  • Also ordered a tribute to my mother. It took me almost 3 years to figure out a way to honor her life and I will share it with everyone very soon.
  • I have been abusing the word "ball fro" this week. If I say it a few more times I believe I will be sleeping at a hotel soon. It is not wise to mess with a pregnant woman.
  • Tank has been with us more than a year now, and it is hard to believe it has been that long. We are really grateful to have him as a part of the family.
  • I hope you have a wonderful weekend and a great week until we speak again ... stay thirsty my friends. And those orders are from Kyle.
