The Junk Drawer

Does everybody have a drawer in their kitchen cabinets that seems to collect all kinds of odds and ends? I have a junk drawer that is so full of junk now that I can barely shove it closed. I guess its time to dump it all out and see if I really need to keep all that crap or if I can toss some of it to make room.

Just at the front of the drawer are several pairs of chopsticks, a box of wood matches, a little tray with a couple dozen loose keys, a baby bottle brush (???) and probably 100 loose and scattered twist ties from the loaves of bread. Some of this is really not needed in the kitchen. Especially bugged about all the loose keys – what the hell do those keys go to anyway?

Mani’s and pedi’s for guys?

I couldn’t fucking believe what my mom got me as a gift. It is a manicure and pedicure for men at her favorite spa. I didn’t know that men did that at all. So she dragged me down there yesterday to make sure I would use the gift certificate she bought me. I was surprised that there were so many men there. I think most of them were doctor and lawyer types or business men, but I really did enjoy it. I spend a lot of time on my feet with work and the pedicure was amazing and so relaxing. I could actually get used to that.

I got to sit in a vibrating chair that massages you while the person doing the pedicure massages your feet and calves, before actually working on your toenails. That was one of the most relaxing things I have ever done. Now I understand why my dad goes to the spa with my mom every so often. I know that we guys tend to get a picture of what is and isn’t manly and it skews our judgement on things. I can officially say that I am hooked on this and plan to buy some of the gift certificates for some of my friends.

I want a fucking jetski

Honestly, I really want a fucking jet ski. I have never owned one, but have had lots of fun on my friends water bikes. I can’t decide whether to buy a new one or a used one. I have searched craigslist to see what they had on there and people either want too much money for a used bike, or they are not in working condition. Some of the prices on them are more than a new one would cost. In these instances I have contacted the seller with a link to a page showing them that they are asking too much. Most don’t really appreciate it, but some have responded favorably.

There is one that I really like, but I am not sure I want to spend quite that much money. It is an amphibian four wheeler, crossed with a jet ski. It is fast as hell in and out of the water, but defeats the purpose of occasionally getting stuck in the mud with it. Getting stuck in the mud and getting dirty is the best part of going four wheeling in my opinion, so long as you don’t get stuck too often. I suppose I will probably buy a new one though.

Night on the town

I am in desperate need of a fucking night out on the town. I haven’t really been out in a long time and I need to get a little crunk and have some fun. It would help to maybe meet a woman to spend a little time with. I haven’t really been dating that much as I have been so busy with everything else. Everyone needs a break from time to time though and my time is now. I think I will hit the clubs tonight. With any luck I will only have to go to one of them. There are several with a ladies night promotion going on tonight, so they should be hopping.

Believe it or not, I like to dance and I am pretty good at it. I don’t usually have a problem finding dance partners either. Not to toot my own horn, but I am fairly good looking and I show the ladies respect. I don’t act like the mac daddy and they appreciate that a lot. Women want a man to be real and act like they have some respect for themselves and the ladies too. That is what my mother taught me and I will stick to it, because it works.

Car show downtown

Hot fucking dog ! There is a car show downtown today and I am going to be there. I love to see all of the restored cars and trucks from long ago. I have my own restoration vehicle, a 1964 1/2 Ford Mustang. I absolutely love my pony. I don’t have a picture of mine, but this is what it looks like.

I have completely restored everything to the original specifications as well as the interior and exterior looks. I just might enter into the competition, but I am not sure. I know that there are better ones out there, but I am very proud of mine. It has been a labor of love to restore this myself. Yes, I did all of the work myself. Of course I had a little help from time to time when one of the guys would drop by or my dad and I happened to be working on it. They always jump right in and want to help.

That doesn’t bother me in the least either. It’s a guy thing you know? We like to commune over machinery and have our “guy talks” as my mom likes to call it. Anyway, I am off to the car show so wish me luck in case I enter the show.
