Rantings…

This rant is going to be as short as possible.

This morning I turned on some morning show while eating breakfast. (I normally don’t do that for this very reason).

What has this country come to?   They had some lame news that wasn’t news at all.  Then, what really got me, was this fashion thingy.  They had some little chick on saying what the hottest fashions are for 2009.  She went on to say how this big gaudy plastic jewelry is “so in”, and what a bargain starting at only $350 made by blah-blah guy.

Then the absolute icing on the cake and in my face, she starts showing these special “numbered” t-shirts that are special made by artist and have “art” (it was computer generated graphics) on them.  To me, they looked like the graphics every teen has on at walmart.  The kicker???  she said they were a superb value starting at a mere $100 each and you better hurry to get one because they are very limited production.  My friend Stevan Sheets can design any shirt I can think up for $5 plus the $12 shirt…. and his look killer! I even one, that is a ONE of a kind!! Wow am I lucky.

Are you kidding me?

For the record, I work in an office, wear a shirt and tie.  I can buy a high quality shirt on sale for $19, some nice dress slacks for around $30, and a pretty sweet tie for about $20.  Some dress socks for $5.  That is $74 TOTAL.  And, I look better than any kid in a t-shirt.

My favorite t-shirts I got while going somewhere or doing something, and normally pay no more that $20… usually less!

OK, I am done ranting. Thanks for reading.  Please don’t buy one of those T-shirts…. I have some I will sell you for $50!

So, I have an awesome boss.  Gary got us a LCD TV for Christmas!  It is a 40″ LCD Samsung.  It rocks, and most importantly Lisa loves it…  for real, I hardly ever watch TV. I am WAY more likely to be found wasting time on the web.  Our old TV was slowly dying (anybody want a FREE 35″ TV that works most of the time and some of the time is black and white?)  The only real problem was we could not find a new TV stand…. even the ones we did not like were several hundred bucks, AND were fake wood.  So whats a man to do?  Bust out the CHAINSAW!

Above is what the old $olid oak tv cabinet looked like before being chopped….

OK, really I didn’t chainsaw it… I called the master wood worker in the area… Jay Glon.  He picked it up on Monday night and had it back here on Thursday.  Now that is service… and as total bonus, Jay is to nice to charge what he should of, so he only wanted $50, but  Lisa wouldn’t let him leave without less than $60!  It looks better than any cabinet we saw, and its real wood!  The TV looks sort of smallish in this pic, but it really fits our living room nice.
