Hating Stu Gotz, Fry's or Mother Nature, The Chicago Bears or Getting Stuff Done.

By: The Dude on the Right
I have to start out this blog by simply saying that I hate Stu Gotz.  Fine, maybe it is really Mama Gotz whom I hate, because she first suggested this, but Stu brought up something in the last couple of weeks that right now, well, it's the last damn thing I need.  Hopefully I'll remember to have it out with Stu on Monday when we do our Weekend Wrap-Up and let the world know why I now hate Stu Gotz.

But I did find something I love today, and it was in a quest for a telephone that I found it, and that is the store Fry's Electronics, or Fry's, or whatever the hell it is really called.  All I know is I planned on going for a walk today, on a warm, fall day, in the Forest Preserve near the Dude-Pad, where the fall weather is bringing beautiful colors to the leaves, but instead I found myself in a different kind of heaven, where I was able to find a battery for the stylus of my Palm Pilot, a new phone for a client, the DVD of "Thank You for Smoking," and had I already won the McDonald's Monopoly game, there would have been a whole lot of more spendin' going on.  But I held back, didn't buy the HD TV I've been looking for, nor the combination bread-bagel toaster that also cooks an egg, nor the refrigerator with the TV in it, nor the CB antenna that I don't really need right now, but as my Dad always says, "It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it."  Fry's is a store all about that quote.

Oddly enough going to Fry's and walking around for over an hour went totally against my movie viewing, although I did get the exercise I wanted.  Heading to the theater this morning I intended to see "The Departed," you know, the Martin Scorsese flick which is getting a lot of critical acclaim, but the running time was over two hours.  This being one of the last, warmer weekends here in Dude-Town, I said to myself, "Self, what a waste to spend so much time in a movie theater when you could be out enjoying Mother Nature!"  So I opted to see "Employee of the Month" today to cut my time stuck indoors.  Then I went to Fry's and spent the afternoon, well, you get the point.  So much for Mother Nature, but I did see some fantastic TVs that would look great in my living room, or my bedroom, or my office, oh hell, they've got a butt-load of TV's for every room, and some of them even had Mother Nature scenes playing, so my getting out in the open air wasn't a total loss, even without seeing the beautiful colors of the leaves.

Now, as much as my screwing up seeing Mother Nature today happened, tomorrow brings future dilemmas because I am behind on my animating of our next episode of "Stu & The Dude Reviewin' the Movies for You," that being "Jackass Number Two," would like to see "The Departed" and write a review for that movie, have seen "Employee of the Month" and have to write a review for it, have a good twenty movie previews to type, want to review the new X-Men DVD I have and the "Thank You for Smoking" DVD I picked up today, and the Dude-Pad could really use a good, fall, cleaning to get me to spring.  And to top it all off, The Chicago Bears play tomorrow, trying to keep their undefeated season in tact, and to top it on top of that, I still need to catch last week's episode of "The Biggest Loser" which might hopefully get me inspired to quit playing the McDonald's Monopoly game.

So many things to do, and there never seems to be enough time, and with tomorrow being probably one of the last, nice, weekend days to get out of the house, how the hell do I figure out what to do?  It was easy in college, we would just go up on the roof and get a suntan and drink maybe one or two beers.  It sucks being older.

And to top all of that I had a dream the other night involving a good friend of mine whom I've known for just about forever, where in the dream she kept kicking me in the ass to get shit done that I haven't gotten done yet.  I suppose I should just listen to her and get shit done and quit complaining about it.

This Dude's life is so complicated.

That's it for this one!  I'm The Dude on the Right!!  L8R!!!
