Resolve This!!!

by chinwhat at 11:47 AM
Things I want to do this year:

- punk The Natty less
- punk Al more
- have a butter herb garden (no, not that kind Dr. T)
- work out so i can at least have a non-flat ass


i think that's it... and oh yeah, this little thing i've had on the stove for a while now: Chin's World Tour 2K5. Gotta make up my mind for that one...

So Long 2K4!!!

by chinwhat at 7:45 PM
January
• Begin the year in a drunken stupor with promises to “activate my emotion chip.” So how’d I do Cathy? “Love More In The Oh Four” indeed wouldn't you say?
• Try out my very first juice fast. Did it over a weekend. I remember I felt the animalistic urge just too physically EAT something. ANYTHING!!! Chewed on some natural Laxatives though (there goes my hate on pills!) But I think it helped bring some great Karma for the year!

February
• Git my skate on at Ottawa’s Rideu Canal. That same night, AI gets “picked up” by a couple of gay guys in the elevator… >rolls eyes<

March
• Go to my very first brown fundraiser/jam/party. So THIS is how ya’ll get down! Nice! >does the light bulb dance<

April
• TeamID 2nd Annual 8K Race – A crushing defeat for Cathy who worked so hard for it. And an easy escape for Shaun and The Natty who “conveniently” returned from Cuba that night… But at the race dinner that evening, we seen the Raptors’ future: CB4!
• Hmmm… my first CN Tower climb for the WWF. It seemed like a good idea. And it felt like a great accomplishment afterwards. But during? One of the worst things I’ve ever done physically in my LIFE!!! My lungs felt like they were filling with lead or something…

May
• Brand new K2 in-line skates! Now I can enjoy the… uh… joys of ice skating… in the summer... and spring... and fall!
• Begin training for my illustrious bar tendering career >cough< >cough<

June
• Began our miserable Bball league ("why is everyone else so big?"/"why are we so small?")
• Alison’s “Bon Voyage” BBQ to England… only she didn’t go. WTF?
• First of two failed attempts to break the 30 min mark for a 5K race. Bay Street Rat Race. Lots of corporate bank scum (like me) Some Argo dancers were there too! And I think I saw Eugene Levy try to cut across the race course in his SUV. Oh punk!

July
• Second of two failed attempts to break the 30 min mark for a 5K race... this time I missed it by a blasted 11 seconds!!! This one was at the Docks. And Chris and we met a new running friend: Caesar.

August
• Ended our Bball league record with one win in the regular season, and one win in the "playoff game". The first one was an epic win. Not because we actually beat a team, but because we traveled three hours each way to play a 40 minute game. Most def a highlight for the year. I couldn't explain how happy we all felt!
• Excellent concert month! First was the Hip Hop Peace & Unity Festival at Metro Hall. It owned because it was 1) free 2) had C.L.Smooth, Jeru and Special Ed ($20 for a burned CD? C’mon dog…) 3) enjoyed a burrito on the grass from a new (to me) burrito joint: Burrito Boyz 4) smelled of weed (>sniff< >sniff< mmmmmmm!) 5) scared old white people (laugh x1000). The second concert was Jilly from Philly. Her show was reeeeeeeeaaaaaally good. That and I had the sole privilege to see Brown.
• Return to Kelso! After the cock tease of a Kelso trip in 2K3, this visit was awsome! Canoe water battle? Yes please!
• Jennifer Lopez lingerie show night. Started off at Laide. A quaint erotic themed lounge on Adelaide. And as Cathy likes to get the story wrong, it goes incorrectly like this:
Me: “Do you have dinner service?”
Quite Attractive Waitress: >in seductive tone< “What did you have in mind?”
Me: >removes hat to relieve self of heat. Voice crackly< “Uh… dinner… like food?”
As for the fashion show, WAR cracked out lingerie models turning so fast that her titays pop out. And as the black guy in the audience with the camcorder said: “BRRRRRRRRRACK!!!”


September
• This years Toronto Urban Music Festival at the CNE was fucking great! One of the greatest Hip Hop moments I’ve ever witnessed. Talib Kweli was on stage doing his thing, and invited all the B-Boys and B-Girls to come up on stage. At least 40 of them pop locking, freezing, power moves etc etc. At one point, all of them were doing thier battle/combat moves... >sigh< a thing of beauty!
• Half marathon. By far, one of the most mentally difficult things I've ever done. How many times did I want to quit over the 21.something stretch? Enough! That's how many! There were moments when I seriously thought I wouldn't be able to finish it. But 2 hours 43 minutes 19.7 seconds, I crossed the finish line! Absolutely no way I'd be able to do it with out my running partner. Can't say 'Thanks' enough!

October
• Illadelph, PA! Cheese steaks morning, noon and night! Rocky stairs! Monopoly and other Parker Brother themed photos. Mockery of various historic US… uh… stuff… ah good times!
• Wedding for a family friend who's my age (more or less my cousin… yknow how it goes). I don’t go to weddings much, so I don’t know what’s good. But I know what’s NOT good. And this was one of those. Gat damn! I know fam’s important, but when 3/4 of the people in attendance are slightly conservative grown folk, a party this will not be! And it wasn’t… >sigh<
• CN Tower Climb 2K4 pt. 2. I thought I’d be prepared for the heavy chest pains since I did it earlier this month. “Wrong. WRONG” © Charlie Murphy. But I did beat my record by 1 minute 7 seconds! >pats self on back<

November
• Last semester stress getting to me. I actually pull an all nighter for the first time in my life. Stayed up for 28 hours straight to get a coding assignment handed in… then got dragged out by TheFour to Moxie's for din din >yawn< Not as cool as I thought it would be. I actually got creeped out at school on several occasions (damn motion capturing mannequin!)

December
• >cue Alice Cooper song re: no more school<
• Thanks to good ol’ TBS, Watched “A Christmas Story 3.5 times”

Overall, it's been a terrific year. Can't complain at all. Thanks to everyone for making 2K4 great!

2K5 resolutions next post... (which butter be soon since its in a couple days)

Merry Christmas!

As Davey Chappelle as Rick James would say: "It's a celebration bitches" And what butter way to celebrate, then by watching my two favorite Christmas movies:

Year in review?

by chinwhat at 2:16 PM
Should i do one? Huh? Maybe, but the obvious highlight is during the summer when my good friend Nalini of CityTV's Breakfast Television worked together to raise some money for the United Way.

Inglis4Life

by chinwhat at 1:23 PM
So if you drive on the Gardner between Jamison and Spadina, then you may have seen the Inglis sign that dispenses thoughtful and inspiring comments. Drops hot lines like: “There is no reward greater than a child’s smile” or “A job becomes work only when you worry about it”. But my favorite is “There are no mistakes in life, only lessons”.

Chin is a “Lesson”*

*if you don’t get it, story goes like this:
I think it was last year, when it was my parents’ wedding anniversary. So for some reason, I decided to count how many months till my birthday. “Four... five……. six? Damn, there were six months between they’re wedding and my birth? That means I was conceived BEFORE they were married”. Shocked. I. Was. Shocked. I mean, who counts right? So I decide to ask my mom what’s up and she replies “We were going to get married anyways” laugh, its funny... but it isn’t... but it is... laugh...

Lame Duck

by chinwhat at 1:24 PM
So I'm watching my cousins play ball in the flip league they're in. The game before us has Oliver (from high school) on it. So he's walking by after the game and say 'what's up' to him and give him a pound. my cousins husband says to me: "wow kuya! that's the first time i've ever seen you give daps to anyone" wtf? am i that much of a 'geek?'
_
So yesterday i went to church cuz my mom said that one of the original priests came back to do a mass. Fr. Laborio is pretty fucking hardcore. Basically, when he was coming down the asile, i could see everyones face light up! Like they were thinking: "NO. FUCKING. WAY!!!" And as usual, he killed it! Brought the house DOWN! Openning line goes something like this: (after mad applause) "Thank you, thank you. For those who remember, thanks, its nice to be back. For those who don't, you must be asking 'Why's everyone clapping for some fat priest'" Nawmsayin? He explained that he was the new "Vocations Director" or something. In charge of recruiting new priests and nuns. He said that he was pretty good at knowing off the bat if someones going to be a priest/nun just by talking to them. 95% success rate he said. So he steps to some teen in the front row. Looked at him, asked if he was married. The kid replied 'no' and Laborio goes: "so far so good." Then he goes on to say that he has a little test for him. He asks him to hold up his left hand. Then his right. Then asks him to bring the to hands together, palms touching (as in putting your hands together when you pray) Right when the kid did that, Fr. Laborio goes: "you're a natural!" Laughs all around!

Yes, I'm amused by such childness-ness-ness...

by chinwhat at 11:26 AM


What can I say? I love the Calvin and Hobbes and miss it tremendously. In fact I also miss Ben Wicks'. And Gary Larson's The Far Side. That stuff was soooooooooooo funny. Seriously, if you don’t like it, you’re not my friend quite frankly. I think I like them because some of them have a certain amount of dementia about it… anyways, heer’s some examples:

















WAR Bill Waterson
WAR Gary Larson
WAR Ben Wicks

So now that I’m done school for the second time…

by chinwhat at 11:37 AM
I can now officially reminisce about my days of Sheridan. Heer’s one thing I’ll most definitely miss:
Seeing young hot blondes
Their hair all nice and done up
Make up real nice
With the pink lipstick
Tight shirts showing off their perky tits
Jeans that grab onto their asses
(or alternatively, tight sweat pants with the words
‘Juicy’ or ‘Naughty’ printed on the behind)

That makes me say:
“GAT DAMN!...........
..
..
..
..
..
..
..
..
..
..
...Shaun and Chris would’ve loved to see that!”

which in a strange way makes me wish I pseudo went to the Brampton campus... yknow, w/all the brown chicks and all...

This is why the Japanese...

by chinwhat at 3:02 PM
are the fucking Japanese

Hmmm, so its monday. One more day till its my last at school (for ever? laugh...)... and more importantly, unemployed. But REAL unemployed. For the first time in my life. Mothafuckin unemployed... I guess it'll give me more time to clean my room and listen to all that music I got stockpiled... but then again, it puts a damper on my plans for next years "Chin World Tour 2K5." Been asked where I'm going. The open list is as follows: Vancouver, Mexico, Brazil, England and Germany (for World Youth Day.) But ever since I seen that shit on CityTV re: Habitat for Humanity, I want to check out one of those African countries... if I ain't ever tell you that story its heer: Was watchin CityPulse@6 one night and there was a segment where Peter "Watch it buddy!" Silverman goes to some African country. He does a story where HfH is helping the folks build homes and stuff. He interviews some volunteers from that contenant and else where. There's some chinese chick from Cali he's interviewing and she starts crying 'cuz she sad about the fact that the kids can't afford to go to school even though it only costs something like $5 a month. I fucking swear, that shit almost made me cry! If he didn't cut to something else, I would've been reaching for a tissue for real! Pharrelle! Some say you can't change the world, I say you can. I'm not really that familiar with the 5%Nation beliefs, but like God, I do believe we can change shit... and I wanna prove it!

That'll teach 'em to mess with my termater

by chinwhat at 12:58 PM
- forgot to mention that i had a WACK dream the night before last. i dreamt that there was this dog that kept shitting. and i had to clean up after it. 'cept when i tried to clean it up, it'd break down. yknow like those dirt bombs (aka dry clumped up pieces of dirt) you throw around? like that. but the wack part was i kept smelling my fingers and they smelled like shit (duh!)

- was walking out the door today to LeSabreNation. the guy in front of me had a small coffee and tried to open the door without touching it (i guess he's a germaphobe.) he fucked up and the door hit his arm that was holding the coffee, which partially spills. his cuss word of choice? "Fish." "Fish?" Yes, "fish."

- read in the papers today that tomatoes jumped from $26 a case to $90. $90 for these 'tomatoes???' they're pretty shitty if i may say...

"You loco mang!"

by chinwhat at 11:45 AM
So I'm driving my way on to school in my luxery sled, LeSabreNation. It's snowing. I make the first turn off my block. I'm a *TOUCH* fast and pull a mini fish tail. At the same time, I see a car come up the other end of the street. Maybe 50+ meters away. It stops. I guess they shook or something. No harm right? "Wrong. WRONG!" (c) Charlie Murphy. As I drive by this other car, the female driver looks at me eyes really wide, mouth wide open and makes the circle motion near heard head. Yknow, the "you're fudging crazy!" motion. I'd be insulted, except I had The Root's 'Tipping Point' on.

Stay cool motha fuckas, Yall know the rules!

Uh, yeah...

by chinwhat at 11:48 AM
Thanks to Jon fucking up the TeamID calendar, Happy birthday to Chris and Jon for today: December 3, 2004. Your Horoscope courtesy of Yahoo! (which for some reason is hard core pimped by Shaun) says:

Quickie:
It's nice to have choices, sure. But sometimes you have to say no to some options.
(Al, choose to play Halo2. And choose not to do the dishes. Its your BDay after all!)

Overview:
Got the urge to travel? Bet you do, and that there's someone close to you who'll be happy to go along for the ride or the flight. Regardless of how you choose to travel, you'll have favorable winds to guide you.
(Guys, Shaun says he'll take someone to the Carribbean for FREE! But in typical sales pig pitch fashion, he conviniently forgets to mention the fine print: "You will be required to have me, Shaun, 'fuck your mouth'" >shudder<)

Daily Flirt:
Go ahead and push your luck today -- it's not getting any better than this. No matter what game you're playing, you're sure to win. Think big: overseas travel, romance, long-awaited conversations, long shot bets and the like.
(Shaun approves of this! >shudder< >shudder<)

Daily Couples:
Think ahead to a journey you've been dreaming about. Plan with your lover for a special way of celebrating the coming year.
(CathyAl are taking the team to St. Lucia? Thanks guys!)

Daily Singles:
Well, aren't you in a good mood? Spread around a little holiday cheer and you'll find yourself getting big (and possibly romantic) dividends. Long-distance connections will pay off handsomely.
(Chris + Rome = :O!!! Maybe this asstrology stuff does work!)

Those and you celebrate it with such >cough< celebrities as Mr. Daryl Hannah and Ms. Julianne Moore

So uh, yeah, next time i see you two fuckers, imma punch yalls in the back of the head!

Swim boys, swim!

by chinwhat at 12:25 PM
So I’m just wondering, am I the only one whose genitals feel funny when their laptops are on their lap? And that ‘funny’ feeling is not a ‘good funny’ feeling. It’s like my sperms' mutating and looking like those robot things from the matrix. Each one with multiple tails and shit.

Bullshit! Vs Bullshit? Pt.1

by chinwhat at 5:06 PM
Okay, so I’m flipping through the tele on Sunday. Pass through to Toronto 1 and they be showing some brown stuff. I stop (naturally) to see what good programming they offer. It’s some guy pimping some horoscope propaganda. I notice that they got Sagittarius’ listed as November 22 to December 20. WTF? That means I’m a Capricorn? So gets to looking and thinking. Thinking and looking. Heer’s what I found:

Traditional Sagittarius Traits (allegedly):
Optimistic and freedom-loving
Jovial and good-humored
Honest and straightforward
Intellectual and philosophical
-------------------------------------
Blindly optimistic and careless
Irresponsible and superficial
Tactless and restless

Traditional Capricorn Traits (allegedly):
Practical and prudent
Ambitious and disciplined
Patient and careful
Humorous and reserved
-------------------------------------
Pessimistic and fatalistic
Miserly and grudging


Which one yalls think I am? I specially wanna heer from The Natty and anyone else who's astrologyFan.
