It’s Deadpool Time

This has been a long and tiring week for me. In fact, it was so exhausting that I almost nodded off at the shop Wednesday evening before my folks arrived. It was a slow day that day so I ended up going home a half-hour early and I went to bed early. I think that part of it was because I was up late after painting my back door and I had to leave it open to dry.

I’m pretty close to another breakthrough in terms of my weight loss. I got on the scale Thursday morning and saw that my weight had dropped another three pounds to 232, which puts me at almost 30 pounds lost. I usually weigh myself every three to four days so that way I don’t jinx myself in case I regain weight.

And I also learned one thing when commenting on an Instagram model’s account when she doesn’t speak English, Google Translate is your friend. That way, you can respond to her in her native language. In my case, I was responding to a Ukrainian Instagram model.

As far as today went, it was raining as I went to Crazy Otto’s Empire Diner for breakfast. Boy, their pancakes were huge (or as Donald Trump would say “Yuge”). The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was this morning. I didn’t watch it because I didn’t want to be bored like I was the last time there was a Royal Wedding which I had to watch at work several years ago. I really don’t give a crap about it.

Anyway, I had to watch the shop today being that my folks were away at a show on Long Island this weekend. It was slow here  because of the rain today and I had at least one sale.

And after that I was off to see something more important than the Royal Wedding: Deadpool 2. I was originally planning to go last night but I was so tired from work yesterday that I just went home and crashed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The other day, as I was leaving work I noticed that one side of the DVD rack had all of the DVD’s and Blu-Rays had every movie with Deadpool on the cover which is part of the marketing ploy for Deadpool 2. And as always, I saw a social media opportunity and took a pic of it and posted on Instagram saying that Deadpool was in virtually every movie ever made!

 

 

 

 

 

 

So after getting out of The Rose Quartz Stand, I went home and changed into one of my new Deadpool T-shirts before heading to Walmart to pick up a cab to Little Falls. This was my first car ride since leaving downstate. I found Affordable Cab’s prices to be reasonable enough. Only cost me ten bucks each way.

When I got there, I made a joke that I was actually there to see Avengers: Infinity War even though I was clearly wearing a Deadpool T-shirt. In truth, I decided to pre-order Infinity War on Vudu (Walmart’s version of Netflix) instead because I felt that it would be better if I watched that at home.

There was a big crowd there because it’s opening weekend for Deadpool 2. And I had a lot of fun at that movie. In fact, I thought it was better than the first one. I’m probably not going to review it but I did enjoy it.

So in short, today was another good day despite the rain. Even if I only got out to see one movie this year, I’m glad it was Deadpool.

One Year Living Alone

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before we get started today, I just wanted to share this pic I took of Crazy Otto’s Empire Diner at night that I took while leaving Borunda Asian Buffet last Wednesday night. I decided that this pic was too good to pass up.

And here’s an update on my weight loss. Going into this week, I am down an additional four pounds which puts me at 235 pounds. Still doing good, especially since a good chunk of my “diet” consists of drinking tons of water and drinking unsweetened green tea when I go to Dunkin Donuts when I’m at work. And to think that I did this in a month’s time is pretty damn awesome.

After work on Sunday, I finally managed to really test out my new mower that I got through Walmart.com last week. And apart from the fact that there were times where the grass bag kept popping off, it worked pretty well. And I was able to fill all five of my tubs that I use whenever I do yard work with grass so I could put them out on the curb for the town to collect, which they do on Monday mornings. And I also found out that a  weed whacker that was left behind at my house still works. I just need to get a replacement blade which I might do this Thursday for pay day.

There wasn’t much that has been going on today. It rained in the morning when I went to work at The Rose Quartz Stand. It cleared up when I left at noon. Had lunch at Borunda and then after that, I went home and finally started working out. Nothing major. Just did some work with the resistance band and I also managed to dig out my Ab Roller that has been sitting in my closet forever before going back to the shop.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And after going back to the shop, I picked up turkey burgers for dinner and decided to try and finish painting my back door. Managed to get it completely coated. I may have to put another coat on but now I have both doors painted.

In short, I can hardly believe that it’s been a year that I have been living alone after my sister moved out to Buffalo with my nephews. How the time does fly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Empire Diner- World’s Largest Omelet!

On July 10, 2010 as part of the General Herkimer Days’ celebration in Herkimer, the people at Crazy Otto’s Empire Diner attempted to set the record for the world’s largest omelet. I just happened to be on hand for this particular event. So did they succeed? Well watch the video and find out.

Oh, The Agony Of It All

I’ve been sick the last couple of days and just when I thought I was getting better, whatever I had came back with a vengeance. My head felt like it was going to explode, I was freezing again and I had some difficulty walking. And so I had to call in again.

I also ate at the historic Empire Diner on the corner of Main Street and Route 5. It was basically nostalgia-central there. I saw it on an episode of “Mohawk Valley Living” and from there I learned that Elvis Presley, the King of Rock ‘n’Roll once ate there. I have to make a mental note next time I go there to film it for YouTube.

Later on that night as I was eating dinner and watching the season premiere of “Heroes,” my headache came back and I had to lay down. It pretty much continued through the night and well into the next morning and it was so bad that I could hardly sleep, and I nearly emptied my whole ibuprofen bottle trying to get rid of this headache. It was around 6:30 last night when I decided to call in sick at work. In a way, I think my job is to blame for why I’m so sick. In fact, when I first started out there, I was out for two days for being sick because of a so-called “ebola” virus going around.

Starting to feel better now, especially after I had my Hannaford-brand Frosted Shredded Wheat cereal. Hopefully, I should be able to go back to work tonight. After all I only have four days left until I am back on vacation. And what’s good about this week is that I managed to take my vacation on a week that wasn’t a pay week.

And I’ve got a little bit of news about my “Librarian” video that I posted during my last vacation at work. Viewership for that video has increased tenfold since the whole Sarah Palin thing broke out. That may be attributed to the fact that I tagged my video on with a Palin-related video, or the fact that the librarian character looked like her. The latter would certainly be close to the truth mainly because the librarian was a result of collab clips from YouTube star LisaNova who has since gone on to play Sarah Palin in several videos on YouTube and on BlogTV. So now in addition to being my most watched live video, “The Librarian” is actually my fourth most-watched video overall.

Well, I gotta run now. I got some more things to do so hopefully I will be able to make it to work tonight.
