Thursday Random Thoughts 4/15/10

Stuff I have been thinking about:.

-First of all My Twitter Fail from yesterday has been fixed. (I hope) I don't know if I am missing anything but it seems to work. Maybe now life can get back to normal.


-Last Saturday I was in my brother in laws wedding up on Long Island. It was a great day. The ceremony was moving and the reception and party afterwards were unbelievable. The reception itself was at the Carlyle on the Green clubhouse at the Bethpage State Golf courses. This afforded us to get wedding pictures taken at the "Black" course. Made famous by becoming the first public course to host the US Open in 2002 (Won by Tiger Woods) and also hosted the US Open just last June. The black course has a very famous "warning" sign that we had our pictures taken with. Even though I am no golfer I do like famous places so I figured I would share a picture of myself with the sign. I'm sure you all are very impressed.

-Also on my trip to NY I got to hang out with my buddy the Mt. Cat as he detailed here. I did have a great time and it reminded me how much I miss hanging out with him on a regular basis. BTW Vin, Yes Jackie is "US People" I am glad you are happy buddy.

-For the first time in my life I got a speeding ticket on the trip home from NY. The speed limit was 70 int eh area where I was but they slowed it to 60 for a 3 mile work zone and I didn't slow down. State Trooper was waiting for me and wrote me a $380.00 ticket. Very frustrating. I am not sure what I am going to do just pay it or hire an attorney and fight. I have already gotten 4 letters from attorneys in the mail.

-Happy Tax Day everyone. I hope that everyone has filed already and if the government owes you money they get it back to you soon. We are still waiting for our state refund because apparently the state of NC simply ran out of money. Hmmm I thought the state lottery was supposed to fix that problem?

-Last week while in NY I completed my 100 mile journey of walking to be healthier. I was pretty happy with the results and now that I am finished I am not sure what I am going to do next for a goal but I need to come up with something.

-Is it too early at 2-6 for the NY Mets to throw in the towel on the 2010 season? Yeesh. Get it together or fire Jerry Manuel or Omar Minaya or at least do something.

One more thing. Last but not least I was out of town last week and did not officially award the NCAA trophy. Congratulations are in order to Kimmehkins who was the winner of Jay and Doc's NCAA Tournament pool. It was a fun and hard fought victory so here is your trophy:


Until next Week:


-Doc

Nothing worse then getting a speeding ticket in a work zone, $385, ouch!

Bond - Great place! my wife's uncle lives in Bethpage a few miles from Farmingdale. I can't wait to go back this summer.

Karen - YOU GOT IT!!

Chandra - Im guilty but still might fight it.

Now that The Regime has decided all Tweets will be stored at the Library of Congress, you will never catch me on Twitter.

Doc, I got some goals for you to achieve, but they'll be tough ones...lots of blood, sweat, and tears!

Jay said...

Lookin' sharp Doc!

Glad you fixed the Twitter problem. That would just suck.

If you don't stop mentioning twatter I'm leaving as in Elvis.

Dana said...

I've heard that states are REALLY cracking down on speeders/traffic violations these days in an attempt to generate income for the state. Good luck with that one!

And remember when we all thought Kimmeh had LOST.HER.MIND with her picks? Yeah ... she wasn't as crazy as everyone thought!

jennifer said...

Yee-ouch! That's a hefty speeding ticket. Sorry about that.

You look awfully nice all gussied up Doc!
