Hockey Players in long pants at Centre in the Square tonight.

While rummaging through the house and packing you find very old pictures of yourself that you forgot all about.  For being a bit of a jock I resemble somebody that might have no idea which way to run if they were asked to go to first base.  This works for sports and as a sexual reference as well.

I own a mounted poster of Sgt. Peppers Lonely Club Band.  It might not make the cut to go to the new place, but I cannot throw out that masterpiece.  It might require a night at a karaoke bar.  The person with the best Beatle cover will receive this as a prize.  They can also have our stone age washer and dryer as well.  Energy efficiency wasn’t a thing when we bought this model.  It was actually thought to be more productive the louder and less efficient it was.  It mean’t that your clothes were cleaner.

Jim Jefferies was solid.  He has a very good sense of how to tip-toe the line of bad taste and humor.

Foreigner is this evening.  This concert is more for Sara then myself.  She once told me that Foreigner was the best classic rock band of all time.  As I listed many bands that I thought were better then Foreigner she just repeated the lyrics of Hot Blooded to me over and over again until I quit arguing.

We leave for the Philippines tomorrow.  We actually don’t arrive until about three days after we leave due to travel and time zone changes.  We have a stop over in Abu Dhabi.  They have a hotel there that has a vending machine that spits out gold bars.  You have to be awfully rich to walk by a vending machine and think to yourself that you don’t have quite enough gold bars, and decide in that instance that you require at least one more gold bar.

As adults we own probably a creepy amount of stuffed animals.  If people were to look through our household they wouldn’t be surprised one bit if we abducted children.

You want to play a little Russian Roulette?  Buy an Oakland A’s jersey with any name on it that you like.  If they last three years there you win.  What you win is debatable.  We have an elliptical trainer bought from Canadian Tire in 2003.  It lasted about 2003 seconds before breaking down.

My Morning Jacket, The War on Drugs, and Alabama Shakes are playing a festival in Toronto.  It’s the same weekend as Niagara Comic Con which has such guests as David Hasselhoff, Nikolai Volkov, and Billy Dee Williams.  My friends are generally divided into two groups.  I could probably predict which of you would go where.

Rudderless – 6.8/10

The music of this film is phenomenal.  Basic story line is a father grieving over his son dying after a school massacre.  He finds his music and begins to play it himself.

I never thought this would be put in my blog, but the show Grimm is excellent.  I will never utter these words for Vampire Diaries I swear.

Centre in the Square is so old school.  They have three people in their 60’s or 70’s ripping tickets at the door.  This isn’t 300 people coming to see some weird magic show that the main finale is pulling multiple handkerchiefs from your jacket pocket.  This is Foreigner, they actually might have been around to watch that weird magic show,

I still can’t believe that the Philadelphia Flyers wore long pants playing hockey in the 80’s.  Why?  What possible purpose could this have?  “Don’t worry about wearing a helmet, but put these long pants on.  We want to make sure your legs are protected.”

Smart Cars do a lot of great things.  I believe when I look in the car I will see somebody intelligent.  They know they have made the correct decision for an efficient automobile.  This is until they meep meep onto the 401 and are wedged in between two giant trucks.

I have a co-worker at work that was telling me how she is not really into Valentine’s Day.  Her and her beau don’t really have big plans.  She said all of this to me while cutting hundreds of little hearts out of pieces of paper to make him a card.

Somehow in wrestling whenever you slapped your elbow before delivering an elbow smash it injured the other wrestler much more severely.

Younger Daryl Smith’s favorite computer game was Hockey League Simulator.  You traded, drafted players, and simulated games to watch your teams progress.  There was no actual playing the game.  You didn’t even get to watch the play by play.  Friends would come over and be very confused by the hours that I would spend checking Mike Foligno’s stats to see if he was a good fit to be a Flyer.  This is the reason why gamers don’t get ripped in this blog.

I caught myself saying oooohhhh a little to freely when asked if I would like some coconut scented lotion.  People noticed, but it didn’t matter.  I was already committed.  There was nothing else to do, but to embrace the scent.

Top 3 things that are related to my name that won’t even get you a pity laugh when you bring it up.

3 – And your other brother Daryl.

2 – D.A.R.Y.L, remember that movie from the 80’s.  You were a robot.

1 – Wouldn’t it be a trip if you worked at Smitty’s Fine Furniture?

I am still trying to find the age out that I start to like shoveling?   I see people outside all of the time that are basically shoveling nothing.  If you just want to get away from the wife for a bit you need something better to do then shovel.
