All Aboard for The Bad Decision Train

Let me start off with today.  I’m not really sure what is going on with me but I have been so tired and out of it.  I don’t seem to have any energy to get past work.  I have been working out before actually going to work but I’m pretty much stuporous.  I know!  That a pretty big word for someone who is as tired as me.

Anyway, today at 4pm started a long 3 day weekend for me.  I’m not sure how I got 3 days off in a row and on a weekend of all things.  But I have absolutely nothing to do for these 3 days.  I put out an APB on Twitter and Facebook for anyone wanting to do something while I’m off but to no avail.  I guess it goes to show how pathetic my social life is.  I don’t even have a softball game on Friday to pass an hour of my life away on.

So with the emptiness of all this time staring me in the face along with my unexplainable lethargy I caved and ordered a pizza for dinner.  I figured I might as well throw a little pity party for myself.  I knew it was a huge mistake right after I hit enter.  I even thought of just not going to pick it up because I knew it was such a bad mistake.

I couldn’t bear knowing I wasted the money on a pizza and not even pick it up.  So I yelled, “To The Batmobile!”  And my two Jack Russell Terriers, Moose and Kenai, ran to the car to go for a ride.  I guess my mistake got us out of the house for a bit.  We got back and I fed them pizza crust and of course they loved every crumb.  I choked down 1 piece and regretted every chew.

Yeah, I just made one big cookie

It doesn’t stop there.  I felt so horrible for even getting the pizza I ate some cookies after.  I know!  Stop it Mike!!!!  I guess it goes to show that once you make one bad decision more follow. Now I didn’t just open a bag of store bought cookies I had stored in the pantry.  Nope!  I went all out and made some from scratch.  I just couldn’t stop.  I swear I was outside of my body just watching the fat kid inside me do all these things and I couldn’t hold him back.  I should have just made some granola bars or something better.  But since the wife is not home I figured why not use her chocolate chips, she doesn’t need them right now…..Ugh!

I even started the day off so well too.  I woke up early and let the dogs out to play with their soccer balls while I went for a run.  I had steel cut oats with a splash of milk and some cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice when I came back.  I had a few slices of turkey and my protein shake for lunch with big plans of doing a great weight routine when I got home from work.

I also left for work 15 minutes early and sat outside to soak in some vitamin D.  I guess that is where my day went down hill.  I was sitting by a few of my co-workers that were also waiting outside before starting their day.  I knew I should have just kept on walking to a different spot but I didn’t want to be rude and snub them.  But the whole time I sat there they were all complaining about how much they hate people, work, school, life, and blah blah blah.  So negative…..

So I have a plan!

I will take up all that empty time staring me in the face and use it to my advantage.

Ok peeps….do something constructive this weekend and be safe.

That is all

Debate Of The Week #5

It must be Friday because it’s time to drop your socks and grab your tux again for Big Mike’s Debate of the Week!

Two weeks ago I asked you who has the best french fries?  McDonald’s – Burger King – Wendy’s – Chick-fil-A – or self nominate a restaurant.  There seemed to be a mix of likes on this topic.  I think it would just be safe to say that french fries are good and as long as you can find a hot one you should enjoy it with whatever else you like.

I really enjoy doing these Debates of the Week.  I hope you are too.  Here is a topic close to my heart.  As I told you in my one post “Something To Think About” I love scary movies, specifically zombie ones.  This topic might not be for everyone but I think it would be interesting to hear from those that are not into these types of things.  You never know, you might have to make a choice such as this at some point in your life.  December 21, 2012 comes to mind……

So let’s get down and dirty.  I want to know if you had a choice of the following which one would it be and why?

1) A Blood Lusting Zombie

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2) A normal Run of The Mill Vampire (and not a sparkly one from the Twilight series)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3) A Bad Ass Throat Ripping Werewolf

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4) The Last Human on Earth

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For me the first 3 are tough to choose from.  They all have their pros and cons.  But out of them all I’m leaning toward the Bad Ass Werewolf.  Here are my reasons:

ZOMBIE

The Zombie has it’s weaknesses.  It would eventually decay even though it is already dead.  I don’t see any life force that keeps it alive except the constant consumption of humans and animals.  And there are only so many humans to go around.  Unless you watch the AMC show The Walking Dead.  The only thing that works is the tried and true method of shooting them in the head.  Other than that, those damn things don’t seem to have a weakness.  Oh of course you could drop them in a well or lock them in a barn.  I guess that would make them stupid creatures.  Plus with my luck I would be a slow mover zombie.  That makes it a bad choice for me.

VAMPIRE

The Vampire, again has it’s weaknesses.  What if all the humans are gone then they are left with cannibalism or whatever it is called for them.  Then you have vampires going after vampires. Or even worse you’re left with sucking on a cow or pig. That is just not a good thing, all that cholesterol.  Your main weakness will be the only other thing that can really kill you, a werewolf.  Plus all that biting and flying around, just not for me.  I like to be on the ground (I’m afraid of heights).  Vampires are another bad choice for me.

LAST HUMAN

Then there is the Last Human.  Ugh, need I say more?  I guess it would be OK for a week but then what?  I would get bored because of no Facebook updates or Twitter comments to read.  And have you ever tried playing Words With Friends by yourself?  You can’t!  It’s in the name.  You’re left with setting up and talking to manikins like Will Smith in I am Legend.  I guess if you’re a guy the best thing would be that you don’t have to put the toilet seat down anymore.  The human has way too many cons.  If your not a doctor or nurse you’re screwed.  Might as well wrap yourself in bubble wrap and sit in a corner so nothing happens to you.  But then you might pop all the bubble wrap out of boredom.   Now you’re really screwed.  Have fun with that life.  Next!

WEREWOLF

So that leaves me with the Werewolf.  I would be the tricky bastard that changes from human form to a hairy beast (not much of a change except for the head hair).  That means I’ll have hair again (Hells yeah!).  I would also have some kick ass nails that would be great for back scratches.  I guess I really don’t need to go much further than that.  Plus who or what is gonna mess with a werewolf, Van Helsing?  Bring it buddy!

Now it’s your turn.  Which one will it be for you and why………
