Oh No! Not Another Caption Contest!
YES! ITS CAPTION CONTEST TIME AGAIN!  Only this time its an experimental idea I had (unless its been stolen already) which may or may not work.  This "Blind Caption Contest" is planned for one time only UNLESS it works out really well, in which case you can then expect more, blind caption contests.  Never fear - normal caption contest will follow after this.
PROCEDURE: (1)  I have preselected a still image from a Movie or Tv show.  (2) I will not show you the preselected image  (3) I will give you a short word or set of words to set your imagination off. This word or set of words may or may not have anything to do with the tone or theme of the preselected image   (4) You will use your imagination to dream up a caption, based on what you see in your head.
THE WINNER will be determined thus:  The caption closest fitting (humor wise) the preselected image will determine the winner! Yay! Me! I so rawk!  Okay, everyone join in..., "Yay! Daveman so rawks!".  You can stop chanting now. Its starting to creep me out.  If more than one caption suits preselected image I have a judge lined up who will help me determine the winner - and the other close matches will get honorable mention.  The Judge is not eligible for caption submission.  Neither am I. These rules apply only to "Blind Caption Contests"
RULES:  * No more than TWO captions per person.  * Keep it reasonably clean. * You must be Baptist - Just Kidding! This has nothing to do with religion or anti-religion.., its just a contest for crying out loud.  And if you do this in the nude, I really would rather not know about it. Sicko.
WINNER (as always) Gets a big plug here on the blog.
Non Winners (as always) get respect
(Appended 10-27-07)
DeadLine - November 2, 2007
Picture and winning caption to be posted
after that date. Come one, come all!

(changed deadline from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2 due to
conflict with bix contest I am holding: "Spooksville"

News On Daughter and Baby

Just a quick note to let you know - Daughter seen the doctor and he decides to put off inducing labor, fully expecting little Job to make a showing before Monday all on his own power.   Yeah - he should have told that to Job! LOL.

So now its more of wait and see.  And as I told a friend.., I may have to hire a professional negotiator armed with a bull horn and a bag of candy to coax the kid out.

I'm really not feeling so keen right now.  I've been making an ash out of myself. Been having stupid ideas till reality set in.  Kind of hurts but I'm good. **looks in the mirror and recites a That 70's Show phrase, to self**.., "Dumb @$$!"

Another Meme-ory thing

I have seen this meme making the circles, of which I first seen at Judy's Blog, also Herb's, and Abby-Normal's then later at others.  Since I haven't seen the Meme that Terri had due to Blog Disruptus (for lack of a better word) I'm going to assume this may have been the meme she tagged me for.   I may or may not have done this a long while back, I'm just too lazy to check, so rather than fight this one, its interesting enough for me to just go ahead and do it.

Four jobs I have had in my life:
1. Buss Boy
2. Paint Store Salesman
3. Maintenance man @ The Mall
4. Carpenter
(I was also a hooker - but its not what you think - maybe I'll blog entry on this one later. Whatta ya think?)

Four Movies I have watched over and over:
1. Back To The Future (trilogy)
2. Stephen King's, Silver Bullet
3. Night of the Comet
4. It's a Wonderful Life (YES I'm a sap!!! I like to try and watch it every Christmas - that and, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation)

Four places I have lived:
1. Arkansas
2. California
3. Texas
4. Arkansas (different town)

Four Shows I love to watch:
1. Carpoolers (funny new sitcom)
2. Smallville   (I'm disappointed Superman is afraid of heights though - I mean duh!)
3. History Channel (anything on ancient Rome or World Wars 1 & 2)
4. Heroes (and I'm kinda getting disappointed this second season)

Four Places I have been on vacation:
1. Whats a vacation? - no one will tell me!
2. Whats a vacation? - no one will tell me!
3. Whats a vacation? - no one will tell me!
4. Whats a vacation? - no one will tell me!

Four of my favorite cuisines:
1. McDonald's Big Mac (eat your heart out PETA!) 
2. McDonald's Quarter Pounder
3. Subway Sandwiches
4. Snappy's Fried  Chicken (or even KFC)
(keep yer faincy calamari and fish eggs thank you very much)

Four favorite drinks:
1. Dr. Pepper
2. Generic diet Cola
3. Green Tea
4. Filtered Tap Water

Four places (and activities) I would rather be (doing) right now:
1. Anywhere: Relic Hunting with my metal detector and gear (but my back wont let me. sigh)
2. At Home: Singing (if I could ever get my singing voice back - no one likes my current Alfalfa style crooning)
3. At Home: Drawing or Painting (while desire is there, "the mood" hasn't kicked in
4. Ticking / Playing with Grandson - rarely do I get to see the little knot head.

Four people I will tag:
1. Whoever wants to do it
2. Whoever wants to do it
3. Whoever wants to do it
4. Whoever wants to do it

Update On Stuff

In light of the events of my last entry - I have filed a first class action law suit against myself for 18.5 Million Trillion Dollars!  Of all the get rich quick schemes out there, I bet this is gunna be a winner! YEAH BUDDY! I'd be rollin in the green when I get all that muney from myself.  Uhm.., I'm just curious as to how I'm gunna raise that kind of money to pay myself.

Maybe some of you can have a charity concert on my behalf, because I'm pretty certain I'm gunna be pretty ruthless in expecting all that cool green from myself.  Sometimes it just sucks to be me.  Heck, maybe some topless car washes will help, even.  Naw - I guess not.  No one wants to see Herb, Myself and the rest of us geriatrics going around without our shirts.  It would be like going to Sea World to watch Shamu's babies beach them selves.  ACK! This fund raising stuff ain't gunna be easy.  Maybe I should just drop the law suit and save myself some headaches.

Well anywho - I called Daughter today.  She didn't like what I called er and hung up, so I had to call her back agin.  Touchy, touchy, touchy.

No grand-kiddling today.  It seems she goes to see the doctor tomorrow to see if said doctor wants to induce labor.  I still say putting her to work at the hospital to pay off the bill is a bit much given her delicate condition.  Inducing labor indeed.

Anyways - long story short - I had daughter place the phone on her belly (I'm serious) and I told Job.., "Look kid.  Do this for your Gampa who loves ya. You are arriving tonight, ya little snot. Got that!?." 

SO - I am fully expecting Job to make his debut TONIGHT!  So write it down.  Job and I have an understanding on this. He WILL arrive tonight.  There is NO room for doubt.  Unless of course he doesn't in which case - eventually he has to show himself. After all, I know where he lives.

I Shoulda Called the Kiddo

Its late-thirty. (12:28am)  For me anyway.  Cant sleep. Worried about daughter and I guess I should have called her today. She's most likely okay, but still. I shoulda called or something. I'm a really crappy dad.  An awful dad.  A good dad would have called his daughter today and ask her how she was feeling.  Hold on just a sec. I started this thing and now I have to finish it....
      [Dave challenges self - throws self to floor. Oh no! a hard connect to the eye and a kick to the gut! Oh the humanity, people! This has got to be a worlds first for the record books of beating ones self up.
      Daveman just flipped himself in mid-air, ladies and gentlemen! Now he's screaming in pain because he realized all of too late, he has a bad back.  Now he's kicking his own butt with well choreographed foot work and its amazing, let me tell you! - uh oh! He's unconscious and no one to count to to ten.
      Oh well - let the man rest. NO! WAIT! He's moving and just found a dead horse. Now he's beating himself with the dead horse!  Its tragic, people! Its horrifying! Its brutal! If this is not taking a cliché AND a metaphor beyond the limits, I don't know what is.
      Oh..., Okay - he really is down for the count, now. Stars are circling his head like Indians circling a wagon train.  Yep. Its lights out for Dave. Good night all]
