Waffles And Pancakes

"My toughest enemy is in the mirror....would ya look at that!" -Belyne Gonzalez-

"Burning with determination, to even up the score..."
-John Cafferty- (Hearts On Fire - Rocky IV Soundtrack)

"I'm definitely the youngest and happiest supervisor in my office.  My emails always include smiley faces...  lol" -Belyne Gonzalez-

"I'm eating waffles on 'National Pancake Day' - Oops..." -Taylor Ralph-

"I want to retweet everything, but that's just too much..." -Belyne Gonzalez-

Good morning everyone.  It's technically still Thursday night, but there's no way that I'm finishing this in eighteen minutes...  Let's start off with that little quotes section above tonight.  Again, I need to give a special shout out to my friend Belyne, who has been letting me rip off her Twitter account left and right lately...  :)  Belyne EASILY has one of my favorite Twitter accounts to peruse...  The John Cafferty lyrics come from what was probably my favorite (and definitely most played) movie soundtrack in high school.  AMC started a marathon at 5:00 p.m. yesterday which had them showing the first 5 Rocky movies in order.  This lasted until 5:00 a.m...  I can't imagine what it would have been like growing up without the Rocky series dotting my youth...  :)  That epiphany hit me last night as I was flipping back and forth through the channels.  And now we get to Taylor...  When I got to lunch today and opened up facebook, I found that waffles/pancakes status above that Taylor wrote.  As luck would have it, I ran across a photo of Taylor and myself last night as I was going through a box of old photographs (I've been raiding this box constantly in recent days to update my facebook profile photo).  Where this becomes relevant to you is that I have DEFINITIVE PROOF that I'm 100 years old...  :)  This is Taylor (and myself) back then...

And this is Taylor now...

WHEN did I get so old???  :)  Taylor is now attending my alma mater, and has obviously become quite the rebel (eating WAFFLES on 'National Pancake Day').  There's probably a manhunt underway as we speak...  ;)  The new profile photo that I stumbled across last night as I rifled through that box of pictures (which also proves that I'm 100 years old) was this one...

Among several clever comments that this shot drew, the most popular one came from my friend Sylvie, who asked, "(Coach) or Jeff Spicoli?

And who said that Sylvie isn't sharp?  As a matter of fact, I was the one who gave the speech for her induction into the National Honor Society (yes, that's correct, 100 years ago)...  ;)  Good eye Sylvie...

What else is going on???  I'm already sick of hearing about LeBron James.  Remember that I just picked up the basketball season about a month ago, at the conclusion of the football season.  LeBron scored 61 points last night on Charlotte (whoopty doo), and ESPN is making a big deal about it on SportsCenter this morning.  LeBron is just full of himself again, talking about how he does it for all of the kids out there who look up to him (blah, blah, blah), and then the Heat follow up that game with a loss at Houston tonight (YES!!!).  I watched the movie 'Castaway' again over the weekend (the whole movie this time), and I ended up having dreams about eating crab...  :D  This got me to the need for making a 'Bucket List' (which I obviously don't have).  As I've said before, I've never lived near water (ocean, sea, etc...) although I love it.  As we all know, water is just a rumor in Las Vegas...  On that note, instead of giving you an obligatory Vegas photo tonight, I'll share this shot of Venice Beach, California that I came across recently...

 I really need to make a Bucket List...  :P  Have a great week and I'll see you again on Saturday!
