F You 2009!

2009 was the worst year of my life. No doubt. 2008 also sucked, but due to the intense loss I have dealt with this year, it beats it out. The year started out great, with tons of hope and excitement. The anticipation of a great year w/ my new GF Lori was amazing! I was so excited w/ starting our life together! have a new GF rules! You find out all the little stuff about them that you love, and all the ways to make them smile. You also found out what they don't like and what you should never do again lol. Things went fairly smoothly until about July. I sold the house (THANK GOD) and got 2 new jobs to replace the Ann Arbor News closing. But after the house was gone I got all the bills the ex never paid, and that caused a rift in our relationship. We eventually broke up, but on GREAT TERMS! Our friendship was blossoming! it was actually amazing! It was so seamless. Everything was going great until October 25, when she took her own life. I was numb. I was a shell of myself. I didn't know what to do or how to handle it. I overreacted, and was very overbearing to the family and Lori friends. I certainly regret my actions, but I was not in a proper state of mind to be held accountable for my actions. My bday on November 1 was a bright spot. I was so sad and some friends MADE me get out of the house and out of my Pajamas lol, and I went out and had a great night on the town! When I got back however reality hit again. I started therapy in early November. Its been VERY helpful in getting through this tough time.  I feel like ME again! I feel like I am feeling SO much better, but at the same time the memories never go away and sometimes a bout of sad hits. Its going to be like that for a while I bet. The year hasn't been ALL bad however. This traumatic event has taught me so much about being strong. Its made me realize I can handle anything, and its helped me be a great support system for friends going through traumatic events as well, because now I have been there. I love my jobs, I've got a great apt that I love and of course so much support from all my friends and family. So...here's to a great 2010. We all deserve it!

Insomnia...Tiger Woods

I can't sleep worth a shit. It's pissing me off! I toss and turn all night, mind races about all things and nothing at the same time! The worst thing is that it's been giving me migraines left and right! In the 2 previous years ive had 3 migraines, in the 1.5 months since Lori passed, i've had 4! Hmmmmmm, something is a mess! Its frustrating as all hell, and its affecting me at work, which isn't good. Im fucking terrified of sleeping pills though. They react w/ some many other drugs, and they can be habit forming and dangerous. I also am hating no sleep though. Maybe Ill try some of that Herbal shit. My roomie has Melatonin, I should give that a shot. Its natural, and occurs in the body. it just seems weird to me taking anything to sleep. I hope this isn't a pattern, I hope its just part of the grief. 

Tigers Woods. WTF? You have an amazing Swedish Model wife. Who has a twin, and you are banging porn stars and cocktail waitresses. FAIL. Dude, Tiger, lets chat sir. You allegedly OD on Vicotin and Ambien, Crash your ride, and in a jealous rage, your wife busts the back window of your ride. Now sir. You are fucked. Forever. You will never be looked at the same way again. You were an ICON! A golf superstar, and perhaps the most recognizable athlete in all of sports. You have turned yourself into a joke. NO ONE likes a cheater. But 10 fuckin whores? DUDE! I feel so sorry for you. You seemingly had it ALL! A beautiful wife, 2 gorgeous kids, and amazing career, a shit ton of money, why do you need to bang a 23 yr old cocktail waitress? What the fuck will that get you? Oh, I know. I DEEP SHIT! I hope it was worth it sir. Because the most squeaky clean athlete reputation you had is DONE! You are a cheater. A piss poor peace of shit cheater. I hope you like your new legacy, and I hope you enjoy losing sponsors, and money. your gigantic galleries may be gone, you may be booed instead of cheered, your game will be affected. You are no longer the greatest athlete of a generation, you are the greatest asshole. Enjoy your new title.

Its that time of year again! The time of year for snot nosed crying children, Piss poor parking arrangements, and general misery! The time of formerly homeless santas and midgets finding good seasonal work. Yup its XMAS! I've never liked Christmas as a holiday, but again Im a selfish fuck so I love getting presents! lol. Christmas has become so commercialized, and is starting so early! No shit Macy's had xmas stuff on display in September. SEPTEMBER! A local radio station had halloween music since NOVEMBER 1! WOW! Pretty soon, its gonna be August! lol. Xmas music cracks e up because there are like 20 songs by 1000 artists lol. I hate that I don't have anyone this Christmas. The Holidays BLOW when you are single! Plus the added bonus of sad isnt gonna make it better. My Sis in Law is like Xmas personified! SHE LOVES IT! Shes tryin to get me to love it too this year! Im open to it but its gonna be tough lol. I want to get into the spirit, but this yr maybe thrown by the wayside. hey there's always next year! HO HO HO!

So Many Thanks...

Yup, my year has been awful, terrible,  the worst of my life. Things just keep piling on. Shit just seems to be getting worse, but even though I have not had a ton of luck the last 18 months or so. I have a TON to be thankful for. A TON! Im thankful to have an amazing family, that is always by my side no matter how bad it gets, or how much I fuck up! I am thankful to have my health. I am thankful to have 2 jobs that I love, many people don't even have one. I am thankful to have the most amazing group of friends a guy could ask for. They have been my collective rock through all this BS. Offering support, advice, or even a drink to help get my mind off shit and focus on fun! I am thankful to have so much in my life! I am very fortunate on that front. I don't have a ton of money, I have bills coming out of my eyes, I have a lot of negatives, but the overwhelming number of positives in my life are far outnumbering them. And last but not least, I'm thankful for all of you bloggy friends! So many great comments, and condolences, I haven't met many of you, but I know you ALL are my friends!!! Love you guys!!!!! Happy holidays to all!

Working my Ass Off!!!

72 hrs last week between 2 job, not thats not a mis print, 72 HRS!!!!! I was SO damn dead last week. Just a tremendous strain, but good paychecks so thatll be nice!!!!

One year ago Sunday I met Lori. I was not however sad at all which was nice, and honestly unexpected. I thought it'd be a hard day, but it turns out, that it made me realize that she is in a better place w/ no depression. It was a HUGE breakthrough I feel, and therapy has helped a lot already!!!!

Really fun weekend! Friday had the annual Thanksgiving dinner after i got off work, which usually includes a ton of beer! lol I had only 5! I was so dead! 72 hr week, and I just couldnt hang all night. I slept like a baby!

Saturday, watched suck ass Michigan lose AGAIN! To OSU, which makes it worse, but there's always next year (I hope!)

That night me and my roomie went out, got some drinks and had a good ass time!!!! Worked at 11:30 yesterday, and got home watched TV an finished laundry. Overall it was a very fun weekend!!!!! Im on my way back to being me folks, it feels glorious!!

Tuesday, November 17, 2009


I'd like to apologize for my recent sad posts. Going through some tough shit, and it helps to talk about it here. This is the post where I get back to being Bobby G again! One of my main problems is lately I haven't felt like me. I hate being sad all the time, I haven't experienced a situation like this in my life before. It's new, and awful. However, this weekend I felt like me! 

Friday, I went to see Bruce Springsteen with my dad! The show was amazing! I'm still not sure how a 60 yr old man can belt out his hits for 3 hrs (including a 45 min encore) and not be destroyed! lol. He messed up though and said hello OHIO! We booed lol! Then to make up for it he did a Michigan Medley, of songs by Seger, Mitch Ryder, and even a little Motown in the form of Jackie Wilson! It was so amazing, I'll be a Boss fan forever!!! 

Saturday I wasn't hungover (for once) and I was able to enjoy an unseasonably warm day in MI in the form of a very therapeutic Harley ride! I rode about 70 miles and really needed it! It helped me get some of the things on my mind off, and it felt so good! That evening I went over to a friends house, had a few beers, and witnessed a boxing ass whoopin at the hands of Manny Pacquiao. He destroyed Miguel Cotto, TKO in Rd. 12. 

Sunday worked 12 hrs at Apple (9hr shift, 3 hr meeting) and after that I went to have a few drinks with the crew! All in all it was an amazing weekend, that I really needed! I'm on my way back people! I couldn't be more excited to be me again!

The Rapist, err...Therapist,

So I decided I should probably get treatment for this traumatic event that happened to me. I went to Eastern Michigan University's Psych Dept to get therapy by a PhD student there. I don't really care that he doesn't have his degree or license. I just wanted someone impartial to talk to. My friends and family are amazing, but I know them too well. Which sounds weird, but going through this shit I've been through has changed me. Plus its only $10 a session, so I'm excited about that! The 1st session went well, I talked about the event and held it together, it made me feel good, hopefully we have found something here!  I hope thee change is temporary, and I will find out in therapy. I wanna be ME again! I hate this overwhelming sadness, thats not how I am! Its not how I roll! It has been almost 3 weeks, which isn't a lot of time at all! So I know that time will heal me, I just wonder how much time it'll take. 

In GOOD NEWS! Going to see Bruce Springsteen at the Palace tonight w my dad! Got him tix for his bday! He's super excited and so am I! Love the Boss!!! Sorry for the short post, but I need to get back to work! Love you guys! Thanks for all your love and support, it means the world to me!

The Long and Winding Road..

Recovering from this event is gonna be a long road. I am so grateful for my amazing friends and support during this time! I'm looking into therapy because I think it'll help me. I've heard nothing but good things from people on how it helped them cope. I'm doing pretty good. As good as can be expected. My day to day isn't too affected anymore, but the nights are rough. Also random shit reminds me of her, so getting through this initial stage is pretty tough. I loved her a lot, but also knew we couldn't be together. I feel if we WERE still together, it would've been so much harder. All the unanswered relationship questions. Her friendship was so important to me though. She was always my rock. During my divorce and the stuff around that time, she was always there. She gave amazing advice and she was so smart! She is surely missed. 

I've decided to do credit relief. After my house sold, as a short sale, my credit went from 740 to 580. OUCH! Well since my credit was so fucked I didn't see a problem w doing debt relief now. My old problem with it was that it'd fuck my credit up. NOW I don't care, cause its already bad. What happens is instead of pay $480 a mo in CC minimums. I pay $269 not to the card co, but to me in a savings account in my name. What this does is it allows me to save some money to negotiate a settlement w said CC co. I owed a total of $16K, it'll be settled for around $8K. Ill have it paid in JUST about 3 years. WHICH IS AMAZING! I'm looking forward to debt free living! 

In happy news! I got my free 16GB ipod nano from Apple a few weeks ago! 

I've been jammin out to songs at work! I love Pandora, but it plays the same songs all day and it costs $.99 after 40 hrs. These are MY SONGS! I own them, I love them, it ROCKS! never knew how much I missed my ipod! 

Ok folks! Thanks for all the wishes last night! Love you bloggies!!!!!!!!

The Hardest Blog I've Ever Had to Write...

I've had the longest hiatus since I've started blogging. It's been a  terrible time lately and I come to you folks today w a heavy heart. On Sunday October 25, My ex GF Lori (Broke up a month ago) died suddenly at the age of 32. By request from the family I won't say here how she passed, but it doesn't matter. Last week was a blur of phone calls, Funeral Home Visits, and burying the girl I loved. My grief was unexplainable, as I have never been through a loss like this. I've lost grandparents, and stuff to cancer, but this is so much different, so much worse. I wrote the obit for Lori's family. That's a situation that you don't wanna have to think about when you experience something like this.  I was so grief stricken time just all ran together. I didn't know what day it was or when I did certain things. Due to my grief, I made some decisions I regret. I was overbearing to the family. I needed to let them be, but I was almost obsessed with making sure they were OK. I also called some of Lori's friends I didn't know so well and offered my sympathies. They apparently were uncomfortable with that. I regret those decisions, but I was trying to help. There were consequences. I was only allowed 1 hr at the viewing per family request. I was happy to oblige, and honestly, more than an hr may of been too hard for me anyway. I know the family is upset with me, but we all grieve in different ways. I hope one day, they can forgive me. They are great people, and I cant imagine what they are going through as a family right now. I have no ill will towards them at all. they did what they felt they had to, and I will respect their decisions. The funeral was beautiful. Huge Catholic Mass, which, was very nice despite my religious beliefs. The funeral gave me good closure, and allowed me to move on. Her dad said at the funeral that she is finally happy now, and those words stuck with me. I always wanted to do my best to make her happy, and I know she is now. That for me, is calming. I loved her so much. Even though we were broken up, we had a tremendous friendship brewing. We could always tell each other anything, without judgement, and someone like that is rare. She was a beautiful person in & out, and she will be deeply missed by not only her family and I, but countless friends. One thing I can say is that the support I received was AMAZING! Facebook messages, and chats, emails, calls, texts, I have a GREAT group of family and friends to rally around, and they made all the difference in the world. I'm also going to see a therapist. I'm sure I have unresolved issues from my divorce. Which makes sense, but this is the last straw. I'm a really strong person, but this event has hurt me in a way I never have been hurt before. It would do me good to talk about it. 

This weekend was also Halloween and my bday. I know, happy fucking bday right? Actually it was QUITE great! Once again my friends and family really rallied around me to make my day special. Saturday, I hit a Halloween Party! I was dressed as magnum PI! Check me out!!!! 

Hilarious huh? And yes ladies that moustache is all mine! I felt like a creepy child molester for the record lol! I had a great time! Sunday me and a bunch of friends rolled to a local bar Sidetrack. I got drunk. No other way to put it. 4 25 Oz beers and 5 Irish Car Bombs later, some female friends were like "BG, what do you wanna do now? You wanna see some titties?" I said "HELL YEAH!" I went to the strip club for the first time in 8 years! It was good times! lol. I had 0 expectations for this bday, infact I didn't want to do anything, but people rallied around me and got me to go out. I had so much fun, it was a pretty damn good bday after all!!! Love you guys!!! R.I.P. My Lori...

No RTT, I'm Back!!!! Update Time...

Ugh...Remember me? The guy who used to write blogs here at the G-Spot? Yeah, well I'm back, well  for today anyways. I've been so busy! Between work, and social life, I've barely had a second to breathe. Me and Lori are still dong well! The friendship is taking off which is nice! I am transitioning nicely! Our current relationship is going great!!!! This girl is a special one, and being her friend is absolutely great to me!!!! So thats all fine and well! 

Jobs are kicking my ass! but for the 1st time in my life I can honestly say I love both of my jobs, which is a great thing! The hours are rough and leaves me little time to be social, but its all good! I am on a hiatus from the bars, spending too much money and am tired of hungover weekend mornings. 

Thursday I am breaking my bar hiatus however because one of my good friends Kelly is back in town. I worked with her at the Ann Arbor News, and when it closed she took the opportunity to go to Florida! She is one of my BEST friends and I miss her so, so I'm excited to see her!!! 

Went for a 65 mi Harley ride yesterday! The colors were AMAZING!!!!! It was chilly, but I had all my gear on so it was VERY comfortable! Its the best stress reliever on EARTH! I fear there aren't many days to ride left, I hope I'm wrong! 

Woke up this morning and it was a LOVELY sunrise 

Very nice! We are gonna have a really nice week in MI! its supposed to be 70 on Wed! So I'm excited about that, even though its a 14 hr day, and I wont get to enjoy it! 

Ok folks, I'll try to post whenever possible! Miss you all!!!

Thanks for the Hope Tigers...

I had to wait a day. I couldn't figure out what direction I wanted to go w/ this post. I was pissed, but mostly I was sad. Sad for this city. 

Detroit is in shambles, as most of you know. The unemployment rate is a staggering 22 percent! Essentially 1 in 4 people don't have a job, in a city of a million. Unsolved murders are at 70% yes 3 out of 10 murders are solved. The graduation rate? 24%. That's not a typo, 1 in 4 graduate from high school. The lowest rate in the country. The Mayor of the city served time in jail for lying to a grand jury. The size of the city is shrinking everyday. In the 1950's it was nearly 2 million, now its 912,000, 11th largest. It was the 4th largest city in the US at 1 time. The murder rate is 6th highest in the country (as of 2008) 

At any rate, the people of this city needed someone to rally behind. They needed a hero. The Detroit Tigers were that hero. Grandy, Maggs, Cabby, Polly, Guillen, Inge, Laird, and Rayburn were holding the weight of a city, NO a STATE on their backs. When the Tigers were winning, the city wasn't thinking about graduation rates, or murder rates. Even unemployment and the stress that comes with it could be miraculously pushed aside for 3 hrs on a Tuesday night. The Tigers couldn't handle it. 

There was the collapse of a 7 game lead September 7, that was now down to a tie. The city rallied! I saw SO many Tigers hats, and flags, every damn FB status had something too do w/ the Tigers it seemed. The city was ready and waiting. It didn't happen. Minnesota and Detroit played their asses off in an amazing game, one of the best I have ever seen. Back and forth lead changes, 12 innings, lots of drama and excitement. But in the end, Detroit fell short. Blame who you wish, Rayburn for the ill advised slide, Leyland for keeping Rodney in for 3 innings, or whoever, the truth is, it didn't matter. We just wanted a win. We don't care we would've probably gotten killed by the Yankees, we just wanted a shot. So as I sit here, and finish up this post, I just want to say Minnesota, great job, great game, great season, you earned it. You deserved it, but the City of Detroit NEEDED It.

RTT! Story Time! A (non Bobby G) Drunken Night Gone Awry

We've all been there. Get shit faced drunk, crash somewhere random, puke, get up all disoriented and leave. The difference between us and Dave (Last name not given) is that its usually not a strangers car, and we didn't leave our phone behind. Poor Tony Mollica comes out to his car on Monday to find vomit on the floorboards of his car ruining his ipod headphones, and a lot of questions. He made a craigslist ad to find said person complete w/ pics (Yes Sarah, of vomit too, you're welcome.) The Craigslist ad was seen by a Detroit Free Press reporter named Jim Schaeffer. He got a hold of Tony for a story (Vomit Free). All three guys were on a local morning show this morning discussing the incident. Dave got drunk at his bachelor party and told the cabbie the wrong street. He thought the unlocked car was his buddy's, and needed a nap he said. He puked in the car, woke up at 7am and left!  His best man, was able to get a hold of Tony and get his bud's Blackberry back. He also paid for the detail clean to get the vomit out of the car, and the ipod headphones. The moral of the story folks is two-fold. 1. If you are gonna puke in someone else's car, don't leave your phone. and 2. LOCK YOUR DAMN CAR!!!!!

Disney, FULL OF IT!!!!

I was delving into my memory banks today, thinking about Disney because I am listening to Disney Music on Pandora (don't judge me) I love Disney cartoons. Especially Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Lion King and Mulan. But there is unfortunately a bunch of BS involved due to the fact that its a cartoon and it has to be happy. 
So in Little Mermaid. There are 2 Ariels. Underwater Mermaid, with beautiful voice, or On land Ariel, w/ legs, and NO VOICE! Seriously, what guy wouldn't want that? A Beautiful red headed Goddess who cant talk? JK ladies =) 
Here is a song by Great Big Sea that's about mermaids! The End RULES!!!
Good times huh? Dirty Nufies! 
OK So in Beauty and the Beast Belle, was smoking hot. And she fell in love w/ a Beast, OK, that's cool. I'm w/ ya so far Disney. So they fall in love before the last rose petal falls, and he turns into.... A FUGLY PRINCE! If I was Belle Id be looking for Gaston, cause this dude is struggling. 
Why we are on Beauty and the Beast, and on the subject of Gaston. Why would you chose Belle when you had 3 SMOKING HOT TRIPLETS that WANT you? Its not like Belle was game, and he'd be ditching here for these girls. Hmmmmm
In Mulan, Mulan she dresses as a soldier to fight the war to save her father from death in a war. So you telling me, in a war situation, they had NO IDEA Ping (Mulan) was a chick? she never had to piss? or Change? or anything? Plus LOOK AT HER 
Really? They couldn't tell? Here's the JAM from Mulan 
OK that's all I can think of now!  Have a good Wednesday folks!!!!!

Skipping RTT to do a bit of preaching...

The Wisconsin Based, Freedom from Religion Foundation has put several billboards, like the one above around the Detroit area. I for one agree with them. The people of Detroit have put WAY too much faith into religion to help with their day to day problems. Instead of being proactive and doing something, they sit back and wait for a greater being to "show them a sign" Church is a social scene for them. Its a place to go every Sunday and see your friends. My problem w/ churches in general is the use God to get money. These folks can barely afford day to day life, yet the collection plate goes around 3 times a service. The people of Detroit, and anywhere really, need to use their common sense.   The billboards are creating a stir in the Detroit Area as you can imagine. I just hope the people in the "D" take a step back. Darrell Dawsey from Time Magazine has written an amazing piece on this issue.  Despite your religious affiliation, I URGE you to take a look at the piece. It might just make ya think.... Sorry for the sermon folks, but it really struck me this morning, and I wanted my readers to see it.

One good thing...

Tuesday I had a BUMMER post about all the shitty thing that happened with my year. The Last item was breaking up w/ my girlfriend. Its been a REAL tough week. BRUTAL. Tons of crying, not a lot of sleep. Constant nervousness and lots of nausea. The reason why I feel all of this? I love her. She has been the SINGLE greatest thing about this year. She is amazing. Beautiful, sexy, and really strong willed. She has probably the best heart I have ever encountered in a woman, or any human in general. She never puts her self first. EVER. The thing I will be the most grateful for is how much she helped me during this year. Of all the BS that happened, she was ALWAYS THERE. Either to bitch at to clear my head or a shoulder to cry on. Her smile brightened my day. Its the little things ill miss the most. Cuddling on the couch watching a movie, her sweet kisses, her gentle touch, her beautiful and soft lips, her hypnotizing eyes, and her amazingly caring nature. The breakup happened, and I wont get into personal relationship details on here, but it was my fault (Fuck no I didn't cheat). That's why this is so damn hard. It's bad enough that I lost her. To have it be because of something I did, makes it 10 times worse. No 100 times worse. I have ALWAYS treated her well, I told her Id always be there for her and that Id do whatever I can to make her happy. I let her down, which crushes me. We will always be friends. I know people ALWAYS say that. But I have no doubts in this case. She IS my best friend. She knows all my deepest darkest secrets. I can tell her anything. There will be a bit of an adjustment period of course, but in my heart I know we will be friends w/ her forever.

Bobby G's Feet's Excellent Adventure

MY FEET SUCK. They are flat as hell. Like these: 

When I step out of the pool, you can see my WHOLE DAMN FOOT! No arch cut out at all. Its like I got fucking flippers on lol. What does it mean? It means pain. Lots of it. When you work all day on your feet (9+ hrs some days) and you have shitty shoes, that's a bad combo. I figured I had to do something, before I kicked my own feet's ass.  Now I could go to a podiatrist, they'd tell me I had flat feet and Id of said, "Way to go Dr. Obvious" and of charged me a shit ton for it, or I can go to Foot Solutions what these guys do for ya is check your feet and determine what's wrong and the best options to fix them! I had an appt for 5 last Thurs. So I rolled over. The guys that work there aren't Drs. They are Podorthists. They are experts in orthotics basically, or shoes inserts for the dumb asses. So what I did was sit down, fill out a form and take my shoes off. The guy comes over and grabs my feet and puts it in the old school foot measures you would see at all shoe stores. I put my feet in it sitting down. And he measures a whole bunch of stuff. Then again standing. What did he determine? That MY WHOLE ADULT LIFE, I have been wearing the wrong size shoes. WOW! Been here five mins and already have a solution. He said my toes are fine in an 11, but the problem is that the widest part of my foot would fit best in a 12, and I found out that my foot is narrow, a B width, so none of my shoes have hugged me like they should.  Then after that he turned on a computer and I had to walk on a pad on the floor that was connected to it. when I was done I looked at the screen and saw my whole damn foot, as i knew I would. And he ran all the numbers through it and determined that I have bad balance because my feet don't transfer weight like they should due to lack of arch. DEAD ON. I am more likely to trip over shit, or stumble than anyone I know. He had me do a balance test. I had to lock my hands together in front and he pushed on them and I stumbled. Then he Had me lock in the back and pushed down and I stumbled. So then he reached behind the desk and grabbed some inserts. I stood on them and did the same test. NOTHING, no movement at all. I was like WOW! So then he watched me walk. He determined that my shoes were shit for me because they offered no motion control. My shoes moved to much when i walked to that they would help w/ my issues due to the lack of stability. I'm already unstable damn it. So when i went there I was like NO WAY IN HELL I'M GETTING DR SHOES! Those things are FUGLY. So he was like let me show you some shoes, I was like here we go. 1st pair were all black sneakers. HIDEOUS! then he showed me some running shoes that I liked due to the color scheme. They are by Brooks, who is a respected name in running shoes, especially Motion control running shoes.  I liked them, they didn't have my size but I tried something close w/ some inserts in them, and WOW! What a difference! It was night and day! So i purchased the arch supports from them. carbon fiber bottom, light and lots of support. He said I should prob get custom orthotics because of my extreme feet. Custom orthotics are like $400 though, so NO. lol. I ended up getting these shoes in 12B width and size. 

They are SO COMFY because they fit me right! The best part of all this is its FREE! NO CHARGE for the tests and stuff. I paid $58 for the supports, but it was so worth it. What a great experience. If you have foot problems, click on the link i had above and see if there is one near you, its FREE!!!! Ta-ta for now bitches!

Patrick Swayze & random TT

its the Un Moms thing!!!!

RIP Patrick Swayze. Even though you were in the worst movie of all time (Dirty Dancing) You were in the best SNL skit of all time so redeemed. 
Best (or worst depending how you look at it) FB status quote about Swayze
"No body puts baby in the coroner" (what to soon?) 

Ladies, dont give guys fake phone numbers. if you HAVE to lie say you have a BF.  It makes us think you are less of a bitch. LOL

Note to self. If you and a significant other have a house, and you get divorced and move out, make sure the utilities are in her name or you will get FUCKED to the tune of $600ish. FML 

GO BLUE! U Michigan put on a hell of a show against Nortre Dame this weekend. What a game! '

Pandora you still fuckin rule! 

Sometimes you gotta say fuck money and get what you want. Right now is not one of those times for me lol 

So ive started re-watching the Sopranos, on my DVDs, love that show!!!!!! 

Ok folks, miss u all, back to work..ugh....new story of my life...

WTF Wednesday!

Lots of people do wordless Wednesday, but I like words. Lots of them. Sometimes I talk just to hear my voice. Get it? Good. So here is my VERY first installment of WTF Wednesday. 

So I work on the 7th floor at work, which is the top floor. So when I get off at 5, inevitably, I will have to stop on the way down a few times to wait for people to get on the elevator etc. Well yesterday, this BITCH got on the 3rd floor, and got off on the 2nd floor. In my head I was like BITCH Waddle your fat ass down the stairs. WTF? 

Friday It was POURING RAIN here in MI.  POURING! There was a TON of standing water on the street and this big ass truck hit the water at a high rate of speed and I got SOAKED! I tried to avoid it but behind me was a wall, I could go nowhere...WTF? 

I need an IPHONE! But I'm too broke! Id have to cancel my Verizon Contract. it'd be $100 to kill it, which isnt unreasonable, but then add an extra $200 for the phone, it wont happen too soon...WTF? 

Im going to a foot doctor tomorrow. I have the worlds flattest feet. Its RIDONK! When I get out of the pool you see my WHOLE foot print. All of it! The doc is gonna measure me for foot insoles for my shoes. I hope he doesn't say I need Doctor shoes. That'd suck and make me more of a douche bag than I already am. But my feet wont hurt anymore...its lose lose. WTF? 

I am a dork. Why you ask? Because I am STOKED about the Apple New product announcement at 1. I am gonna listen to it at work. Yeah, its that bad...WTF? 

Every year I get excited about Detroit Lions football. This is the year I think, every year. Every year I am disappointed, WTF? 

I found a downside to Pandora. You only get 40 free hrs a month, then its $.99 for the rest of the month. I know its 99 cents, but come on Pandora WTF? 

So Obama's big socialist agenda? Don't post incriminating pics on Facebook, stay in school, act right. And people have a problem w/ this? WTF? 

Lyric Fuck Ups anyone? 

Warren G Regulate 
Correct Lyric. I cant believe they're taking Warren's Wealth. 
Wrong Lyric: I cant believe they're taking Lawrence Welk. WTF? 

Prince 7 (Bobby G fuck Up) 
Correct Lyric: And every evil soul will surely die in spite of
Wrong Lyric: An Every Evil soul will find a GIANT SPIDER. WTF BG? 

Manfred Mann 
Correct Lyric. Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce another rumor in the night 
Wrong Lyric: Blinded by the light, wrapped up like a douche another rumor in the night.  WTF? 

Ok folks! WTF Wednesday is over! Wednesday, its a perfect day to bitch!

RTT, Where I have been!

Ive been working my ass off!!!! Apple is going great, I am new but I'm selling tons of stuff and helping customers out w/ their problems! Its a cool job, fun people, and a great environment! the only problem? Its COLD AS ANTARCTICA in there!!! FREEZING!!!! I usually rock a long sleeve T under my Apple T. We have been so busy because Apple is running this great promotion. $100 off a comp, free ipod touch and printer after rebate. Its been a ZOO!!!! Couple that w the fact that the Apple store in Novi was closed, and it makes for a busy few months!!!! 

Football is back!!! That makes me happier than words can describe. It seemed to of come quick this year. The reason? Because the Detroit Tigers are doing good! Gives me something to do in the summer while waiting lol. 

My shows starts back up tonight at 10 on FX! What show you ask? SONS OF ANARCHY!!! Its essentially motorcycle Sopranos! It follows a bike gang in a fictional California town. MAD DRAMA! Check it out!

I'm so stoked about fall. LOVE FALL!!!! Halloween, my bday,  Beautiful colors, hoodies, and snugglin w/ the one you love! CANT WAIT for cool weather tailgates before Michigan games, motorcycle rides w/ the leaves all red, yellow and orange, and bonfires! Love Bonfires! the only shitty thing about fall is that winter is near. Winter in MI blows.

Ok folks, kind of a lame post, but I post when i can!  Love you all!!

Weekend...Epic Fail

Well as you may recall, I set up a goal for this weekend. No bars and a bicycle ride. Bars were not a problem. Bike ride was. Why? The flu. I got a case of the kick my ass flu. Ive been livin on Nyquil. Fever, body aches, cough, stuffy/runny nose, the whole Gambit. I saw my GF Fri night. Sat it was full blown. I feel like ass....goin back to bed...Peace!

This upcoming weekend!

So me and the GF have a problem. Its hangovers. We get WASTED on Fri and Sat we do nothing. NO I MEAN NOTHING! Not a damn thing. This is weekend 1 of no bars. Sat morning we are going on a Bicycle ride. A real life bicycle ride. We are getting up early and taking off. I'm excited and nervous. My fitness level is currently..well...um...low. I want to go strong for my GF, but I'm afraid im gonna cash out after a few miles. She is in AMAZING SHAPE! Works and or runs almost daily. Looks amazing! Though she states day in and day out how hot I am, (Love you baby)  I'M not happy w/ myself right now. Exercise would do me good. I can only exercise when I'm tricked into it. A bicycle ride on a nice road by the water isn't exercise to me, its relaxing, (except hills, screw hills, they blow) Ill let ya guys know how it goes! Hopefully a full report w/ pics etc! 

Ive had MUCH more time this week. Starting to get my schedule down. Apple is going GREAT! Shadowing right now, but I'm in Apple clothing, so I helped a bunch of people by myself yesterday. I didn't get any credit for my sales, but the experience is exceptional. Its a ZOO in there!!!! A huge mess of people. All of which have a different agenda. Some need computers fixed, some need a iPod, some need a computer, some just want a case or cable. It a very diverse mix of people, they are from all over. The best thing is that the people seem to (so far) really respect and wonder what you have to say. Its a great sense of accomplishment, which is nice to have in a job for once. 

OK folks, may or may not post tomorrow, if I do it'll be JUST letters. We are busy on Fridays so we shall see. Have a good Thurs Folks!!!!

Im the Coolest Cat Ever....

Sometime I wish I was a cat. Here are pros & cons 

MAD advantages to being a cat are: 

Licking your own junk, don't scoff, EVERY guy has tried it. 

Laying around all fucking day. 

A milk jug lid keeps you entertained FOR HOURS 

Belly rubs! 

What would suck?

Same food every fucking day no matter what. 

Pissing on your shit & Vice Versa 

Getting Fixed, thatd BLOW! 

You can be trying to do something all day, and in 1 sec your owner fucks up your progress.

Pictured: My cat Harley AKA Kiddao (pronounced Kiddo) AKA Kiddao Pimp Juice Ridonk! That's right, ALL OF THAT is his nickname! lol Poor little guy has epilepsy, and I gotta give him a pill twice a day. He is 3 yrs old, and he is the best cat ever! he comes when you call him, he greets you like a dog when you come home, and he LOVES all guests. As long as said guest pet him lol. Have a great wednesday! Here is a song all about cats!!!

I must do something, before my ass takes over the earth.

I'M getting fat. No it's OK! I've noticed it. You can just tell. When you sit on the couch and you stomach is getting jabbed by your belt buckle. When you piss and can barely see your cock. When your Jeans are holding on for dear life and hoping to no rip! I weighed by self at the GFs on Sat and GASP I was 204lbs.  The second highest I have ever weighed (207) and then I got irregular heartbeat (NOT RELATED) and lost 35 lbs due to restrictions (NO BEER lol) Me and the GF were discussing needing a break from the bar and drinking in general. There are FEW precious weeks of summer left and we haven't done SHIT outside! No bicycle rides, 1 walk, we never took her dog to the dog park, ZIP! Why you ask? Because MOST Saturdays we are hung over. Like HATE THE EARTH hungover. We hit the bar on Friday and Sat we cant function ALL DAY. This Sat we were in bed till 2, due to our raging fucking headaches. I spend WAY too much money at the bar. Being drunk makes me eat stupid shit. And thus I get fat. And broke. I spent almost $40 at the bar on Fri. 2 carbombs, 4 big beers and food. What did I get? About 1000 calories and a BRUTAL fucking hangover. NOT WORTH IT! Its time to be lame. Its time to save loot. Its time to lose weight. Beer is a HUGE part of my empty calories both directly and indirectly. Directly cause some of those beers are 200+ calories a pop, and indirectly because they lead to stuff like Tacobell, and Giant Burritos and Coney island food. There are special occasions such as Birthdays and other things where ill go to the bar. But ill hold back. I'm 30 years old. I'm tired of hangovers. I'm tired of wasting away precious weekends. So back on weight watchers. That was a epic fail last time because I wasn't too upset about my weight. NOW I AM! 200lbs is too much for me. My amazing GF says I still look amazing. I know she means it too! But I'm JUST not happy w/ myself. That's whats up right now. 

Ive also starting eating breakfast. In the past I wasn't a huge fan of day to day breakfast. I didn't make time for it. Well now I'm getting up 30 mins earlier than normal to eat breakfast and watch a bit of TV before work. I ate this DELICOUS Jimmy Dean breakfast bowl. 

Turkey Sausage, egg whites, low fat cheese and potatoes! It was a HUGE portion and only 5 points for the whole bowl! Not too bad at all!!!! I get 32 points so 5 for breakfast isn't too bad! I need to stick with it. I'm weak. I love burritos (17 pts) I love chips and snacks, its tough!  But not as tough as it is to be my pants lol. And when I drink forget abut it! So here's to a newer, sober-er, skinnier BG....I hope...

Guess Who's Back Bitches?!?!?!?!?! So & So-ing it up!

Hey! Remember me? I'm Bobby G, I used to be here all the damn time, but then I got two new jobs that suck all my time! I always blogged at work, because it made me feel like I got paid for it. Which was dope, but new job is too damn busy!  It rocks because the days fly by, but it blows because I am the worst blog friend ever! I hardly ever get on! But I'm here now bitches, I have a time frame to knock out a post and what better way to get my peeps smiling than: 
My homegirl Kat, over at the Bungalow!
She rocks the HOUSE!!!!!!

Dear Bobby G Ride 

You are holding up well despite being a piece of shit, that was totaled and repaired-ish. That's why I decided to get you some new shoes. Those shits cost $300 (My insurance Co says the whole fucking car now worth $280 after the accident) So you're welcome! 

Also asshole, thanks for getting 23 MPG. Thus not letting me get loot for you from cash for clunkers. You are a mother fucking clunker, but I still love you! 

Bitterly yours, 


Dear Pandora Radio 

You are the shit, and thanks to my DIVERSE musical tastes, at work I can jam out to you and hear Snoop one song and Dixie Chicks the next (Just happened now) 

Entertainment-ly yours 


Dear life, 

Give me a fucking break, I'm bustin my ass here! 

Dear Ass, 

Thanks for blowing out my jeans. That's a dick move. I had to get 5 new pairs of jeans, so now I'm fly, but damn dude! Stop growing. 

Ass-toundingly yours 

Dear rest of me, 

Up north kicked my ass, I feel like a giant blimp (and I read Ice Cubes a pimp) I don't have a scale in my apt, but damn near 200lbs seems close. Should I get a scale? I think not!!!! 

Fat ass-ly yours 


Dear Harley, 

Sorry Ive been to busy to ride you much lately, Monday is gonna be nice, Ill take ya on a nice long ride, you deserve it!!!

Love w/ all my heart 

Dear BlackBerry

Sigh., I'm gonna have to cut ya loose. I'm gonna miss you, but I need an iphone because I've been drinking all the Apple Koolaid , and right now $130/mo bill is killin me. I'm getting an old Envy 1 from my brother and I will use it until i can get a AT & T contract. Its not personal BB we had some amazing times, you recall up north? and the pic below? 

For the Record I am passed out w my BlackBerry in one hand, and my Beer in the other, VIVA EL NORTE! The BB is like Crack! 

Much love, and maybe Ill see ya around one day

What I did on my Bloggy Vacation...

Bobby G is back bitches, at least for today anyways. I'm pissed I missed dear So & SO its one of my fav things of the week. Oh well ill catch ya Friday for sure! 

So you may be asking... "BG WTF did you do on your bloggy vacation?" 

Well the answer is A LOT! 

Friday, while I wasn't doing SO & SO Letters, I was selling my fucking house! Its gone, its done, its over! It feels GREAT! It was such a long tough task. But now I can rest easy. Oh and as an added bonus from Obama (Thanks sir!) We got $750, to split because we did a short sale & NOT a foreclosure. So that was nice! 

After work Friday, I rolled up north w/ my buddies for a MUCH needed break. Some time away after all the shit went down. We STOCKED up on booze and food and rolled, here  is our fridge from day 1. 

That was night one. We killed all that and THEN SOME! We had a couple coolers full too. So after this debaucerous night, we cashed out. About 4 am I am awoken by my partied out friend Nate as he tries to get on my air mattress w/ me. I'm like "DUDE! WTF are you doing" He says "Going to bed" I'm like "DUDE ITS OVER THERE" he looks me in the eye and says "I'm too drunk" and passes out against the couch. LOL. Our other partied out friend Eric kicked my buddy Big Tim's Dog out of the doggy bed and slept in it lol. The dog was all confused like WHAT DO I DO? LOL  We get up the next morning and decide to MASH on some pancakes, well I didn't because I hate them, but everyone else was killing them, and I looked at the box 

Anyone else game for some KRUSTY ASS PANCAKES?! lol 

We head to town the next day for more supplies and see this little gem! 

It was Michigan made out of coke & diet coke 12packs. Its pretty bad ass. The smiley face was where we were at. 

Saturday was ROUGH for most. But we all rallied except Eric who puked his GUTS OUT! we told him he sucks at Up North. 

Saturday we played more drinkin games. Had a delicious Taco Dinner, and played X box and chilled. Came back Sun Afternoon, it was a BLAST! Just the getaway I needed. 

So Apple is tryin its best to FUCK ME. 

Was supposed to have training in Ann Arbor Fri & Sat 9-6. Which would've sucked, but it got MUCH WORSE when it was decided that it would be Sat & Sun in Troy. Troy is an hr away, all x way and traffic-y as shit. It blows. 

Pretty much moved into the apt. Ill do a video tour/blog this week sometime! Nice spot! HUGE fountain right out my window, I like to sit on the patio and drink a beer and listen to the fountain than Piss PROFUSELY due to the water noise lol. 

Ok blog land. Chillin for now! Enjoy your Wed! See you hopefully tomorrow, but FOR SURE FRI!
