I’ve been feeling pretty crappy after I’ve been working out lately. I’m trying to remain vigilant, but it’s hard when it’s dark outside when you get up in the morning, but I need to stay focused. I have a goal that I want to reach by the end of the year, and I’ll feel disappointed if I don’t make it.
This weekend was pretty decent. Friday Raz came over and we watched “Silent Night, Deadly Night” of which there are 4 sequels, which I plan on watching before the 25th. We didn’t do much beside that and then watched some Tim and Eric stuff.
On Saturday, Jason and I went out to Lift and I bought a Frank Kozik 8″ Redrum Dunny, much like this one, which Kent, the owner, had one left over from when they originally went on sale in 2006. It’s in mint condition, so I’m pretty happy about that. Afterwards, we went to the Royal Oak Brewery and had a few drinks, with Erik meeting us there. After that we went back to Lift for their winter munny show that I mentioned in my last post (I still need to get pictures off of my camera). Erik picked up a Triston Eaton lift exclusive Mad*l citizen, which I believe is his first vinyl purchase, besides a DIY munny he bought a while back. Anyhow, after the show, Jason and I were joined by Dave at my house to watch Oscar De La Hoya predictably get his ass beat by Manny Pacquiao. I so should have put money on that fight…
Sunday, Katie and I went to a rememberance service (I’m not sure exactly what it’s called) with her family at Holy Cross church in Detroit. Of the limited times I’ve been to Catholic service, this one was pretty fascinating as it was 95% in Hungarian. Afterwards, we went to a Hungarian restuarant and had lunch, which was friggin awesome. I can’t believe I’ve disliked stuffed cabbage for so long, it was great. After that, I vegged out and played games and shit and went to the gym.
Monday was back to work, and so the saga continues.
I haven’t done an update from my weekend in a while, so I’ll take this opportunity to do so. I took Friday and Tuesday off of work so with those days plus the holiday I was able to get 5 days off, woot.
I had my first fantasy football draft thursday night, and I I guess I did ok. I’m kinda second guessing my picks but I guess we’ll see what happens as the year goes on. I got home at a decent hour, but ended up staying late and sleeping in on Friday. We got our bathtub liner installed so we got on this home improvement kick going, and we ended up buying a bunch of crap from Home Depot, light fixtures, paint, a lock for our front door and a few other things I’m sure. I neded up installing a couple fixtures on Friday night and stayed up late again.
Saturday we went out to the cottage and I was drunk by 3pm or so on shitty beer. I don’t really remember much from the day besides sweating on the couch falling asleep. It wasn’t my finest moment, and I ended up talking about work which I never do when I’m not at work. I guess I was wasted so I had a bit of an excuse.
Sunday I painted the ceiling in our bathroom and afterwards we went and had dinner at my parents house. I cooked out on the grill, and we didn’t end up playing any uno, so that was a little disappointing.
Monday I did some shit that I can’t remember during the day and that night I had my other fantasy football draft. I feel like I have a better team than my team I drafted on Thursday. Again, I’ll have to see how that goes. Tuesday I ended up just chilling out by myself, and today I went back to work, yay! I kind of wish I would have taken the rest of the week off, but I guess I can do something constructive and save my vacation time.
Yesterday was cool. Jason and I went out to the Munny show at Lift and looked at the cool munnies that people did. There were a few that were really good, and one or two that were… bad. Bad enough that I feel like I could probably do a good job. Someone painted one of those big $200 munnies like a zombie, it was actually really well done, and another where the artist airbrushed it, and used applique. It was really cool and it was selling for $200. I guess the guy has a regular collector that will come in and buy up his custom work whenever he’s displaying it. They also told us about a couple of their other upcoming shows. I didn’t ask about the Kozik Redrum Dunny – I thought about it, but I don’t have the money to buy it right now anyhow. I did end up buying a plush hello kitty in a monkey suit, complete with banana, for Katie, and a Tokidoki Skelletrina figure to go with my Adios and Ciao Ciao.
Afterwards, we went to the Royal Oak Brewery and had dinner and a couple beers. Once we got back, I had to go home because I was about to fall asleep in the car. I ended up getting up at 5:30 this morning to go to the gym, so I knew I’d want to get enough sleep.
I did weights today, and I think I need to seriously update the amount on a few of the exercises I’m doing. I’m going to wait until my next session with my trainer before I make any drastic descisions. Maybe he’ll have some different things for me to try out. I find myself enjoying my cardio work a lot more than weights, even though I sweat my bag off doing cardio.
so, I’m gonna talk about this weekend. It’s a short week and it’s making me lazy.
Friday night I went over raz’s and watched The Street Fighter with Sonny Chiba. I had seen bits and pieces of it before, but I hadn’t ever sat through the thing in it’s entirety. I actually enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. After that Jenny wanted to watch another movie, so we watched some movie about atlantis that I can’t remember the name of, but I didn’t enjoy that nearly as much as I thought I would. It did have some good elements, but it was ultimately ‘meh’.
Saturday, Katie and I went out to Vault of Midnight, and I bought the Frank Kozik Lime Sherbert Dr. Bomb figure that I had in my last post. After we got home, we cleaned the house a little bit, and then I went over Jason’s house to chill. We went out to Lift and I bought the Kozik Blue Glow in the Dark Dr. Bomb who is 8″ where the Lime one is 10″, yay! I also talked to the owner who has a Kozik Redrum 8″ dunny that he said he’d sell me. I’m waiting to hear back from him to see when he’ll have it in the shop. Afterwards, we went out to dinner, and hung out and played Smash.
Sunday, I went to the Tiger game and afterwards went over to Fred and Carrie’s for dinner. Had a few beers at the house and ended getting home at around 9 or 10. I stayed up a little late watching the Louis Theroux Wild Weekend shows about Pornography and one about Wrestling.
I also got some Richard Ayoade and Matt Holness show “Man to Man with Dean Learner” which is a spinoff of Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace… I heard it’s not great, but I’ll have to give the first few episodes a good watching before I decide.
