Naked

Its a small world after all

After my last week’s rant about how big the world is………..This happens.

Monday morning my phone rings…….It’s my cousin.

“You are never going to believe this,” he says.

Laughing, “What’s up?”

“Ok, so my manager was just in Minnesota for a conference and was flying home. He decided to fly to San Jose to go to some seminar there for a quick over nighter. He told me when he landed he wasn’t even sure where he was going to stay, but he found a Marriot in the heart of downtown San Jose. He was by himself and wanted to grab a drink so he went across the street to a restaurant called “Original Joes”.

It’s an Italian restaurant that’s been around forever. Anyway……….

He continued with his story, “You have to know that my manager will meet anyone and everyone. He can go anywhere alone and leave with 20 friends. He is that type of guy. He goes into the bar and there isn’t much happening. The crowd was light and he sat down at the bar. Ordered his drink and sipped it while chatting with the guy next to him. The guy was a bit older and seemed like a cool person. My manager said it was a little dead for his taste and asked the guy next to him for a better bar/restaurant. The guy said, ‘Well there is a place next door that is pretty fun with a lot of younger people who work there. I will take you there.’

“So my manager goes with this guy to “the Grille on the alley” which is a nice restaurant connected to the Fairmont Hotel. He walks in and for some reason, everyone knows this guy and everyone was coming up to him talking to him and hugging him. He thought nothing of it, and the two of them had a couple of drinks”.

My cousin hears all of this thinking. Wow, this sounds way too familiar, and continues to listen to him.

“So then the guy my manager was with begins to talk about his daughter and grandkids.  They exchange stories for about an hour or so until the guy he was with says that he has to go. He liked to be home and fed by 6:30 every night. My manager tried to convince him to have another, but he was certain that he was done for the evening. My manager said that he really appreciated him taking the time to show him around while he was here and they parted ways.”

Here is Monday morning and my cousin’s manager is telling my cousin this story and he is thinking…..NO way. “Wait, what did this guy look like? Can you describe him?”

“Ya, he was an older guy with grey hair and dark……Well, hold on a sec. I took a picture with him in my phone”…….He shows the phone to my cousin.

It was my dad.

After a nice relaxing weekend getting to see my parents, Dinner with friends, Golf and a couple of workouts, I decided that the weekend would be perfect if I ended it with a nice fattening meal at In-N-Out. The closest In-N-Out is a few miles away next to the San Jose International airport. I got my food and sat outside and faced the runway as I usually do. Damn you airport. I watched all the planes take off and land and it always gets my brain thinking. So here it goes.

Where are all those people flying to? Where are they coming from? Why?

I was born and raised in San Jose, CA and it makes me realize that the only people in this whole entire world that I know are here with me. I mean I know people who live in other states but that is so minimal compared to the amount of people in this world. On planet earth I only know a tiny little portion of it and just a small handful of people in it.That kinda makes me sad. Especially when I interact with 100’s of people a day. I walk by someone every minute and don’t even bother to say hi or get to know them. It should be mandatory or something. haha. I only know what its like to live here and no where else on this huge planet. It takes a couple hundred dollars and I can be in any other state within hours or any other country. Why don’t I travel more? If I died tonight in my sleep I would be extremely upset with how my knowledge of the world works is pretty much non existent. I have grown up in one of the nicest places in the world and I haven’t even taken advantage of this. I get so consumed with work that I am letting life pass me by, and its happening too fast. Tourist come from all over the world to see things that are in my backyard……I’ve never visited Alcatraz. I’ve never been to Yosemite. There are little things I can do but I just dont. Well Mark my words. I am going to start. I want to do everything, see everything, and then check out the rest of what my country has to offer. Its stupid not to really. A few weeks ago I had always wanted to go on a hike in San Francisco just across the Golden Gate Bridge so I did it. I was there and back in a couple of hours and its something I had always wanted to do. A place I always wanted to go. A spot on earth that I always wanted to be at.

Back to the airport. Everybody really hates airports and the security lines and the flight delays….But really its a blessing that we get the opportunity to get on a plane and go thousands of miles away in a few hours. Imagine the world before airplanes. If I thought I was grounded in San Jose now, I couldnt even imagine. Every time I am on a flight I really take the time to talk to the person next to me. Its a special moment in time if you want it to be. Think about it….My last flight I sat and talked with this guy for about an hour. Complete stranger. Odds are I will never ever see him again in my lifetime so why was it he felt he needed to tell me all about his family and his kids? I will never see him again nor will I ever meet his family. Why did we talk about work? I will never ever work with him. To me its like he is reporting to me what is happening in his part of the world. He might be where ever he lives one day telling a story about a flight he took and the guy next to him was really cool and interesting. When the flight landed he said “until we meet again”. Something about that really resonated with me. I couldn’t forget it. We were never going to meet again because the world is so big…..But what if we did?

I’m not really sure what I am trying to say, or what point I am trying to make but I just feel really small right now. I want to try to make an impact on more peoples lives. Sometimes it doesn’t take very much…..maybe even a simple “Hello” as I pass by………

San Jose will always be my home but maybe its time I see how other people live in this world.

The Bachelor-The Women Tell All…………

Whats up everyone? I hope you all had an amazing week and are braving the weather wherever you are……Its sprinkling right now in my hometown. I better hunker down and stock up on water and canned goods. 

 
How sad. This is almost the last time I get to write this season and The Women Tell All is my least favorite episode. All they do is sit around and talk shit about each other still like it even matters. I hope they throw JP under the bus hard. He is such a creepy asshole.
 
I can never find anything to say about these shows since the shit talking is already being done for me…..BUT in the spirit of the Oscars last night maybe I should talk about how everyone looks and what they are wearing…..Oh Shit! If that wasn’t the gayest thing that I ever said than I don’t know what is…….#gayness
 
Ok, Right off the bat I am reminded that I never watched the Sean and Catherine wedding. I think I am ok with that(its still on my DVR though).
 
HAHAHAHA. Catherine said “Quick Fireworks” so awesome. What does she expect a super slow romantic sex sesh? If they never slept together before its gonna be quick. Trust me. He should have squeezed a quick one off before so he could last longer….Such a rookie move.
 
The fuck is this Muppets Bullshit all about.
 
Kelly-I’m glad this bitch brought her dog again. What a dumbass. her lazy eye still bothers me for the record and I am glad a friendly tribe of indians beaded her dress for her.
 
Andi looks amazing and I love her teal dress. Good color for her. She is very pretty.
 
They keep showing a chicks legs but I cant see who it is. She has cellulite…..Cellulite looks better tan 😉
 
My girl Kat is running the show so far. She is good looking to. I always liked her….Plus her boobs are extremely large. I like her hair off to one side. Thats a cute look.
 
Sharleen still looks like a raving bitch to me and I don’t like her still. She seems so uptight and I want to wrap her ear rings around her neck at this point. She is just awkward. 
 
I cant even comment on anyones dress because they only show the girls for like a second each. Renee’s dress is a little boring. That little slut! JK. She is already in a situation? Stoked for her because she deserves someone who is going to be good to her. Lucky guy.
 
Andi faked sleep? Thats not what I thought she was going to fake in the fantasy suite. I love andi. She is gorgeous. I know a lot of you dont care for her but I hope she is the next Bachelorette.
 
Ohhhhh. It was Lauren H’s leg. She looks like Mary Murphy from “so you think you can dance” but with a fatter leg. 
 
I really like how Andi got her points across. Such a lady about it all, but I really liked the points Sharleen made as well. 
 
I couldnt even comment on the dresses because all I saw was a bunch of knee caps. Couple of hot legs and a couple of bad ones. Well this episode was a dud but hopefully next weeks looks pretty crazy. I hope they both bail on his dumb ass.
 
Alright everyone I will talk to you soon.

The Bachelor-Week 8, Part 2

Two nights in a row this week. First of all you’re welcome. Secondly I feel so mysterious. Kinda like when Dorthy and the rest of those weirdos went to Oz and found the wizard was just some regular dude talking shit behind a curtain. You’re telling me he couldnt have gotten an office down the hall? The best place for him to hide was right behind a curtain in the same room as them? Everything else in that movie made sense but that part, they totally lost me….Anyways I feel like a wizard.

With the season winding down the mystery of Clare’s Necklace is finally solved……You know how its been driving me crazy all season? Well I found out
Well I cant wait to see another failed relationship end in Beautiful St. Lucia. Lets start this shit show.
Clare’s Date-
Well I have to start by saying she is gorgeous as ever. I love how Clare Said “If Juan Pablo asks me to stay in the fantasy suite”….Ummmm Its coming dummy so get ready. And very graceful of her to pretend she is a good girl and debating weather or not to go. We all know she is probably setting up the sex swing as we speak.
Another date on a yaught (yaaaaaawn). I have seen way too many rap videos to be impressed by this.
Beeeee Yoooouu Beeeeee Yooooouu. Boner alert! This flirty little vixen with that white dress. Oh my. She is killing that dress.
Date card- Oh my gosh. I wonder what it could be. This isnt the grammys. Open it open it open it. Stoked that Juan Pablo is ok with staying the night with 3 women on tv but swimming with 1 in the ocean is a big No No for Camilla to see. Maybe he just ate and he didnt wait to proper amount of time. I guess that would be a bad thing to teach your daughter.
Why am I jealous right now? Fuck that guy…..(rolling my eyes hella hard). Annnnnnnnnd she just said she is falling in love with him. Fuggin Bitch. I hope they get naked and she sees he has a little weiner and fly’s back to Sacramento.
Andi’s Date-

Andi looks amazing too. I think she is still pretty but I don’t see them together. Rule #1, Never high five a woman.
LMAO. Andi just asked the little kid whats your favorite drink in the whole world….hahahaha. I cant imagine this 4 year old is a world traveler at this point not to mention he lives on a small island and most likely will never leave….So coconut water is his answer Andi. The same shit he has been drinking everyday of his short life.
Andi is ridiculously gorgeous but such a dud. At least she said yes to the fantasy suite. I would hate for Juan Pablo to not have sex 3 nights in a row. Such a nice room. I wonder if it still smells like Clare’s sweaty bunn’s. Its cool how he is wearing the same thing in the morning. Walking around with the Dirty D. Hope he showered before he bones Nikki.
Wait….turn of events. Stand by………………….OH NOOOOOO. She couldn’t wait to get out of the suite? And she said he didn’t care about her past or her feelings and always turned it into him and his story. Was the last girl I dated in that fantasy suite too? Damn, everything Andi is saying makes complete sense. NOW I finally like her. Well way to go Juan stupid Pablo. Way to blow it. She called it perfectly I think.
The shots of her standing there looking upset are ultra dramatic. Good work ABC.
Nikki’s Date-
Damn Nikki. Thanks for pulling your boobs out so soon. She is not fukin around tonight. I’m torn now because I don’t want Nikki or Clare to be with him now after hearing Andi. I hate him more now. I am so glad she finally took those hideous pants off. What the shit were those all about? If you own those throw them out now.
Does a woman want to be told she is cute? I wouldn’t think so but that’s just me. Shit. Maybe that’s why I am single. I throw words around like Pretty, Beautiful, gorgeous etc.
Video message. Its about to go down…..Andi is pissed. Probably because she just had to walk a mile to get to him. She couldnt get a ride? Rude.
It’s ok…..It’s ok.
OMG I hate this guy so much right now. Why do we out source our talent these days? He is clueless. Absolutely clueless. Either he doesn’t understand the english language or is just an asshole.
“What my religion?”…..Catholic……(silence) What an idiot. That poor poor guy. He doesnt even get it. Andi is right.
Ladies and gentlemen our newest Bachelorette, Andi.
Clare looks amazing once again in the pink and black dress. Super hot. And did I mention I love stripes? haha. Nikki looks gorgeous too. I want to lick Clare’s boob glisten.
So here’s the thing. If you put 1 guy in a room with 20 women, they are all going to fight for his attention. He might not even be that good looking but its a natural thing to compete and they start to make it a competition and not about finding love. It wasnt as dramatic as I expected but I am glad Andi left. I think she called it right.
thoughts?????

The Bachelor-Week 8

Well now that the Olympics are officially over I can now focus back on this Venezuelan fuck! I have to say I am very proud of the United States Team and our country. They did really well and it was so exciting to watch. I hope you all took part in cheering on our athletes. Going to an Olympics is now on my bucket list…..Right under getting called “child” from an old southern black woman….Its a real list and that is really on there. I promise. 

 
Ok well lets see what kind of trouble we are in for this week. After watching 2 minute preview it looks like shit is going down! Finally. Something to talk about.
 
Nikki’s Hometown-
Can someone remind me again why Nikki is single? She is very attractive so to me that means something is automatically wrong with her. If I ran into Nikki at the mall or something this poor little thing wouldn’t know what hit her. Shes hot! I could fake an accent if thats what she is into. Its my Australian/Irish/British/Kentucky accent. They all sound the same for some reason. Go figure. 
 
Nikki just said “lets see how cowboy Juan Pablo really is”….Spoiler alert Nikki….He is a soccer player who lives in Me-yam-mee. He is zero cowboy and I don’t want to have to rewind this but did JP just say that he never had BBQ? Way to pick’ em ABC. BBQ and Beers? Her body says otherwise…..
 
I always think its the funniest thing ever when they finally get to go home and see their families they run in all hysterical and hug like its been 24 years since they have seen them. I would walk in all calm and be like “What up Ma? Then greet her with a fist pump n shit……JK. But I wouldn’t hug her like I didn’t just talk to her 2 days ago. Nikki and her mom hugged for like 2 minutes and why is everyone’s house so nice? Mine would be dogs running around barking and kids screaming. Oh so that’s cool. Nikki’s mom is like 41. She looks pretty young to me. Maybe because my mom is hella old. Love you Ma…..
 
Nikki’s dad looks like Ray Liotta from Goodfellas but like 40 pounds heavier. Damn, This guy seems like to perfect dad. Did I mention I have dad issues. Fuck dads.
 
This bitch chickened out on saying I love you to JP…..Real quick, I one time told a girl “I love you” for the first time and she didn’t say anything back….And I had to drive home 3.5 hours……..Can you imagine what my drive home was like? Ya, it sucked a fat one. Anyway she said it didn’t seem right so props to her for waiting plus he is probably going to dump her ass any day now.
 
Andi’s Hometown-
Andi is very pretty but I think she lacks confidence or something. I would think the opposite with her being a lawyer.
 
“You made me doing crazy things like soccer”……….Ummm what? since when is soccer crazy? My niece is 5 and plays soccer but I’m not about to check her mental stability just yet.
 
This bitch calling out JP’s misses at the gun range. hahahaha. What a hoe. “Welcome home Pookie” hahaha. Pookie sounds like a drug dealers name. Her dad is going to eat him alive. He is NOT stoked about Juan Pablo. If we learned anything this season its that Andi still can’t dance to save her life. Im not getting a good vibe from her family and nothing is really worth talking about….
 
Renee’s Hometown-
“I’m going to literally eat my son when I see him”….Well that’s gross. She hasn’t seen her boy for 2 months? How sad. I’m not a parent but I couldn’t imagine. Kinda teared up for a sec when she was holding him. Sweet moment….HOLD UP. I just thought of something. There must be plenty of single dads at the ball park and how is Renee single? She is a nice, pretty girl. I don’t like how she does her mascara though. yuck. Her family seems really sweet though and down to earth.
 
So no one is wanting to say I love you so far. Are all of these relationships garbage?
 
Clare’s Hometown-
WESSSSTTTT SIIIIIIIIIIIIIDEEEEEEEEEE(Ice cube yelling). Sacramento, my states capital and my 2nd home. My sister lives there and I am there a lot. Im pretty sure I am going to stalk Clare’s hair salon and try to get a trim and a BJ. She looks amazing! I love her even if JP doesn’t. Where is that park? I must find it. 
 
OMG. I’m about to cry with her talking about her dad. How sad is that? Wait…..Hold up….(rewind)….Phew…I thought this clown was wearing Croc’s. I was ready to lose my shit people. Does Clare and her sisters have the same mom and dad? There is one sister that looks a little similar but other than that, I don’t see it. They talk the same though. Speaking of does Clare’s mom speak? Is she a mute? Her mom is getting Punked by the one daughter. She is a straight up Bitch. But hey, someones gotta speak for that little old lady because she ain’t said shit since she’s been there…..Oh so she does talk but its in spanish. Hahahah. This is hilarious to me. Well fuck. Now she is speaking English and I don’t understand it either. Hearing Clare’s mom and JP speak together I would “es’pect” more sub titles because I don’t have a clue what they are saying.
 
I’m in love with Clare. She is amazing and I want babies with her.
 
Rose Ceremony-
Clare, Once again comes flying out of the hotel is a super hot pink dress looking fab. Still love her. Nikki looks good too. I love black and white. I love stripes too in case you are taking notes.
 
Awwww poor Renee. She really liked him. 
 
So this night I thought was going to be super dramatic but it wasn’t. Tomorrows  looks crazy. I swear in the preview he says “you barely made it here”…Now this fools is talking shit to the girls???
 
LMAO…hahahah. The bird just dropped a sandwich on Renee’s head. (rewind). Yep, it was a sandwich. Hilarious.
 
Your moms.
