Jonesy’s Random Thoughts – Episode 2

The below opinions are of the author alone and not reflective of Thirdand7’s staff.

  • In 2 months my son will be born. It’s both extremely exciting and terrifying to care for a baby again.
  • This week Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol comes out on DVD; I highly reccommend picking it up. It’s by far the best of the series.
  • I really dislike The ‘Pen at Safeco Field. If I wanted to go to a club, I’d go to a club, not a baseball game. Stupid youth of America.
  • It’s pretty cool having a house with a yard, even knowing that days like today will eventually mean I’ll have to be outside working in it instead of watching TV with Lucy.
  • This year’s annual MLB bet with my boss has been made: Whichever team makes it the furthest in the season, the winner gets the Jersey of their choice. She chose the Yankees, I chose the Tigers. We’ve done this 2 years prior and have split the wins.
  • I jumped on the Draw Something bandwagon because the whole world did. I got bored very quickly, I don’t think it translates very well, they need to make some changes. There should be a timer and there should not be scrambled letters (which you can just stare at to guess).
  • Ted looks absolutely hilarious. HILARIOUS!
  • When baby comes I will have the following TV shows to watch: Boardwalk Empire, King of Thrones and Friday Night Lights.
  • Is it considered a nap if you wake up at 7 and go back to sleep from 8:30 to 10?
  • After 11 games, the Mariners are 6-5 and in 2nd Place in the AL West. Only 151 Games to go!
  • We did the Speed Pitch at the Mariners game yesterday. I topped out at 65mph and my arm feels like rubber today.

Happy New Year…

Hey 2011, go F*** yourself. You have been the worst year of my life, and I once turned down sex twice in one year cause I was stupid. This year you gave my daughter a death sentence, so forgive me for not reflecting on the little things The only good thing you’ve given me is a new house to start anew in.

2012: The bar is set pretty low, but please give us some better luck.

Jonesy’s Random Thoughts – Episode 2

The below opinions are of the author alone and not reflective of Thirdand7’s staff.

  • If the NBA folded and just disappeared from existence, I wouldn’t be sad or miss it. I’m sick of seeing these overpaid assholes on my television screen and flooding ESPN. Sorry Neighbor.
  • I’m pretty sure I could quote at least 80% of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
  • If the Mariners don’t sign Prince Fielder, they will not make the playoffs again in my lifetime.
  • Top Gun 2 is gaining traction in Hollywood…WHY?!
  • I am beyond excited to see The Hunger Games next March; I hope it lives up to the greatest of the book.
  • I saw the Lindsay Lohan Playboy spread. Photoshop never looked so good.
  • On any given evening you could stop by my house and catch me watching 1 of these shows: Diners Drive-Ins and Dives, SportsCenter, or Millionaire Matchmaker.
  • We move to Kent in a week and I’m nowhere prepared to do so.
  • I wish I had a DeLorean with a Flux Capacitor.
  • True Story: I once took out a bee with a kitchen towel snap, in mid-air.
  • I grabbed a Stranger today to see the concert section, found it sad to think that I won’t be hitting that scene anytime soon.
  • I wish I could get a copy of Doc Brown’s cover of Gnarls Barkley “Crazy”.
  • @MilfordAcademy- Follow them!
  • In Elementary School I played the cello, sang/acted in a play, and emceed a history presentation. I also wanted to be Michael J. Fox before things got shaky.
  • Once we get settled at the new house, I would like to institute poker nights. Anyone interested?
  • Sprinkler systems in homes frighten me; while it would be nice in case of fire, could you even imagine how much I would freak out if my DVD collection got drenched?
  • At what age does it become sad for a man to masturbate?

Jonesy’s Random Thoughts – Episode 1

The below opinions are of the author alone and not reflective of Thirdand7’s staff.

  • Top Chef is by far the best reality competition show on television. Don’t even try and tell me a singing competition should earn that honor.
  • I sometimes worry that Pete Carroll is just that hot, popular guy in High School that charms your pants off, then never calls you.
  • Whatever happened Jesse Camp?
  • Mark Hoppus is a really entertaining Twitter follow, if you’re interested.
  • I really wish I had more Twitter followers…@Jonze33!
  • Don’t take it personally, but I sometimes get angry at the fact that your child can walk, crawl, hold their head up without any issues. Why can’t my child? Why did my child get a life threatening disease? People often say that God only gives you challenges that you can handle…I can’t handle the outcome of this challenge you son of a bitch.
  • Diet Mountain Dew is by far the best diet beverage on the market. Can you chug a Diet Coke without burning your eyes?
  • My Top 5 Laminated Celebrity List is: Kate Beckinsale, Katy Perry, Olivia Munn, Kaley Cuoco, Rachel Nichols
  • I’m doing No-Shave November. Not for a charity or anything, just out of boredom. I still can’t grow a mustache.
  • They made an 80″ Flat Screen TV. I want it.
  • While I know it’s important to have a steady career, I miss the days of working at Circuit City. Being in charge of the CD/DVD department was truly the most fun I’ve ever had doing a job.
  • I miss the following TV Shows, in no particular order: Scrubs, Chapelle’s Show, Heroes, Love Monkey, Ed, Pacific Blue.
  • My OTHER Top 5 Laminated Celebrity List is: Ryan Gosling, Ryan Reynolds, Jason Statham, Jason Segel, Gavin Rossdale
  • At what age does it become “silly” to buy the following cereals? Cocoa Krispies, Cap’n Crunch, Lucky Charms, Corn Pops…I don’t think I can start eating Oat Bran anytime soon.
  • Dear Wendy’s, Your new fries suck ass. Love, Jonesy
  • Damn you George Lucas, yes I will give you another $15 next year to see The Phantom Menace in theaters again, this time in 3D.
  • A vehicle that can park itself is a vehicle 2 years away from becoming self-aware.
