      Checking In

      2 years ago

      Been a while since my last entry. A lot has changed.

      I've been dating my girlfriend Heather for almost 11 months. We are currently looking for a house to rent together. Been pretty exciting. She has 17 tattoo's and got me my first one as my birthday present.

      I still work at ADT, currently in their training department. Been with the company 4 years as of 08/31.

      My girl and I went to a couple conventions this year. Horror Hound weekend in Cincinnati and Wizard World in Philly. Got to meet William Shatner, James Marsters, Charisma Carpenter, Norman Reedus, Tom Savini, and a bunch more. We will be going to Wizard World in Nashville this October to meet Bruce Campbell.

      Still trying to maintain the diet. Been tough lately and derailed a little. Hoping to get back on track after the move.

      Thanks to the amazingness of Achievement Hunter I discovered Minecraft and spend quite a bit of my time there. In fact, Achievement Hunter videos have become 95% of my at-home entertainment at this point. I've seen every Let's Play multiple time, as well as all the VS, Things to do, Let's Builds, Full Play's, Rage Quits, ect. Thank you guys for providing so much wonderful content. I don't even watch TV anymore.

      I do still play D&D quite often. I'm running three groups now. Two weekly and one monthly. Each with different people and different stories. All have been quite successful.

      That's all to report for now. I'd like to try and get down to RTX in the next couple years. Here's to hoping...

      Still Here

      3 years ago

      So I've been maintaining my diet for 16 months now. There have been some struggles but currently I'm down 133 lbs. I've dropped 7 pants sizes. I have about 90 lbs to go to reach my goal. I've been working out a lot too, so while I'm still a big dude, I'm starting to see some shape in muscle in my arms and legs.

      I've been working a shit-ton lately, preparing for my summer trip with my best friend Kady. Spending time in New Orleans and then Pensacola Beach this year, the first week of August.

      I got a promotion in May. I'm now a supervisor at ADT Security in the customer service call center. Been with the company almost 3 years.

      Other than that not a lot going on. Still running my weekly D&D campaign every Sunday. Been running the same story for almost 8 years now with my current group.

      Hitting A Personal Goal

      4 years ago

      So far November has started off with quite a bang!

      I started my diet on March 1st. It's not been easy, but I've managed to stick with it for 8 months now. I'm eating less, eating healthier and getting more exercise. My two best friends Kady and Amanda (Skip) have also been dieting with me and I would never have stuck with it if it wasn't for their motivation and support. Seeing Burnie's success and following it over the podcast has also been a strong motivator for me.

      As of November 1st I have lost 101 lbs.

      I was a pretty huge dude, and I still have quite a ways to go, but achieving this first big hurtle has really shown me that if I stick with it I can finally reach a point where I will once again be happy with my appearance. I hope to be at my goal weight by Xmas 2012.

      I'm 34 years old and at a point in my life that if I don't it could seriously effect my health.

      So here's to looking forward to hitting the next marker on my journey from fat to fit.

      Preparing For Halloween

      4 years ago

      I'm looking for Halloween this year. I always enjoy Halloween, but this year looks to be the best one in a long time.

      The Friday before I'm taking my best friends and my God-daughter to Boo at the Zoo, a Halloween even at the Knoxville Zoo. It should be a lot of fun. My God-daughter is only 2 1/2 and I love taking her places.

      Sunday the 30th my best friends Skip and Kady are coming over for our weekly D&D session, which will be Halloween themed. Both girls come over every week, and we've been playing the same campaign for years now. I've spent all week writing the next section and it should be pretty epic.

      On Halloween this little hottie named Ashley I've been crushing on forever is coming over to watch monster movies and then we'll head to the local bar to meet some friends.

      All in all, this Halloween has a shit ton of potential.

      Theme Song Archive

      in Forums > Theme Song Archive | Follow this topic

      I'm sorry if this has all ready been suggested, but it would be great to have an archive of all the different Podcast theme songs. I have enjoyed quite a few of them and it would be nice to have a post with the song and the person who submitted it.

      Is there a comprehensive list anywhere?

      Thank you.

      Hoping for October

      4 years ago

      September has been a pretty big bust for me. Lost my front tooth, got written up at work for being absent while losing my tooth, got shot down by a girl I've been crushing on and the usual financial issues.

      October is all ready looking much better though. On Saturday my best friends, my goddaughter and I are going to the zoo for my companies family day. I've been really looking forward to it.

      I've been working third shift for the past 12 years, and this is the first year I've been on day shift. This means I will be home each night to watch Halloween specials. This pleases me greatly. I love Halloween. I used to work at a Haunted House off and on for about 6 years. I miss those days.

      Damn, My Tooth Hurts...

      4 years ago

      My front left tooth is killing me. It has for 5 days now. I saw a dentist today as an emergency walk-in. She said the tooth has to be pulled, but that we couldn't do it until tomorrow morning at 8am.

      I have bad teeth. I always have. All of my family (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles) all have dentures. I've known since I was a child I would have dentures some day. Looks like that time has finally come.

      I've dreaded it and welcomed it all at the same time. I just want tonight to go by quickly. While I'm not looking forward to a huge tooth missing, it's a small price to pay to make the pain go away...

      Rooster Dreams...

      4 years ago

      So I just woke up and all night I dreamed of Rooster Teeth. Seriously. It might be because I listened to the new podcast right before I went to sleep.

      What I can remember is that I was hired by Burnie and that when I got there I found out that everyone actually lived at the office, sharing bedrooms built onto the new building. I was to be roommates with Nathan.

      It seemed they were trying to build a rocket for a new short but no one could find a 17mm socket so they couldn't complete it. I just happen to have one so I was made employee of the month. To celebrate they ordered pizza, but Burnie would only let us order from local pizza places. When the pizzas arrived mine was missing. Gus paged me to his room (which he shared with Geoff and was decorated in all 70's shag) and said he felt bad for me. He gave me a piece of his pizza and a coupon for free bread sticks on my next visit.

      I went back downstairs to the main room where several of the new employees were having craft time with Griffon while Burnie and Geoff drank and threw popcorn at them.

      I don't remember much else, only that it was one of my better dreams. Thanks guys.
