This past Thursday was Johanna's 31st birthday. She is as beautiful as the day I met her. This weekend was filled to the brim with fun stuff.

Dead Men don't Wear Plaid (1982)
This also shown to me by Barret Walker is a very under rated comedy in my opinion. It is in black and white and it takes scenes from old film noir movies and inner cuts them with scenes of Steve Martin. So you have
Steve Martin talking to Humphrey Bogart. Its brilliant just from that perspective. It also is hilarious because of Steve Martin. This is why this man is hilarious. Coincidentally this is directed by Carl Reiner, the brother of Rob Reiner. Carl Reiner and Steve Martin made a few films together, but this one shines for me. I might even say this is the most under
rated comedy ever...In my opinion.
This is one of my favorite comedies off all time. It is also my favorite John Hughes movie. I know it has nothing to do with teenagers which is what John Hughes is known for, but I think this is just more broadly relatable and just fucking hilarious. It is timeless and the chemistry between Martin and Candy is perfect. John Candy is so amazing in this. You are so annoyed by him, but then you also feel bad for him. Not pity but as his story unfolds you grow to love him as does Steve Martin in the film. They just do not make comedies like this anymore.

I wake up a little early today because I have to get my mother so she can watch Jack. I am very tired. I get dressed in the dark and before I knew it I am out the door without a cup of coffee, which usually helps. I get in the car and I am so uncomfortable, I just keep squirming around and "adjusting myself:" I chalk it up to being tired and irritable. See a lot is going on right now. Jack is starting school soon and we are saving up for the new baby. Needless to say it can get stressful sometimes. So I get home and finally get that coffee I forgot. I'm doing a little better at this point. Then Johanna and I say goodbye to Jack and head off to work. I just can not seem to get comfortable. I am agitated and still very tired. I drop Johanna off and traffic sucks. I'm walking up to my work and I am just not in a very good mood. My clothes are bothering me and then I sit down at my desk and still am very uncomfortable. What is going on, why am I so irritable today. Maybe I need more coffee or maybe I just need to relax and focus. So I take a deep breath. I get up and head to the restroom. As I start to unzip I realize that my boxers and on inside out and backwards!!! Man I'm an idiot, I'm not all stressed out. My fucking underwear is on my body incorrectly. This would cause any man to be in an awful mood. So fixed the problem and now I'm fine. When I found out that my underwear was on the absolutely wrong way, I realized that I am no longer in a bad mood, but what I do realize is that this is the begining of a whole different kind of day. One where a grown man mistakes the stress in his life for having backwards underpants on.

So I thought I would start a blog containing everything that is in my life and whats on my mind. You will see pictures of the family and my personal stuff. I hope it is enjoyable. It really is more for me. Like a journal of my day to day. I also am getting really tired of facebook. So if you enjoy me or my friends or your a thirtyeightMB fan, then you should like all this. thanks
