MPSF Volleyball: #12 Hawaii 3 - #2 Cal State Northridge 2

current song: Beautiful by Akon on Da Bomb 102.7 FM

damn... Hawaii surprised me. UH upset Cal State Northridge. watched parts of the match in between Australian Open commercial breaks. don't know what to think of Joshua Walker. he gets lots of kills... but at the same time has a low kill percentage. cute older Japanese lady who flashes her signs made one for Hunt... "THE HUNT IS ON". love her.

rematch tomorrow. Hawaii ended its 6 match losing streak and earned its 1st conference win.

in other MPSF matches w/ teams from the Pac-10... #8 UCLA lost to #4 UC Irvine and #4 USC lost to #3 Pepperdine. #6 Stanford won over #7 Long Beach.

Australian Open - Serena Williams Champion

current song: Hey Jealousy by Gin Blossoms on Star 101.9 FM

my girl Serena won her 10th major. she dominated #3 Dinara Safina... 6-goose egg, 6-3. match played less than an hour. Safina = cute mini-muffin top hottie. she's Marat Safin's kid sister.

noticed Serena wore GDR blue. Federer also wore kick ass GDR blue in his semifinal victory over Roddick. Serena's lookin' older. same w/ Dick Enberg. he kicks ass. growin' older w/ these guys.

total power game from the baseline. awesome. Safina has a kick ass forehand. during her speech she's like: Serena made me look like a ball boy today. her high service toss reminds me of my dear friend Steffi. now she kicked ass.

love Jim Beam commercial w/ foreign hottie... especially when she says striptease.

for her singles win Serena pocketed a cool $1 million+. I will win the Mega Millions.

Australian Open - #2 Federer def. #7 Roddick

current song: The Anthem by Pitbull on Da Bomb 102.7 FM

in men's semifinal Roger Federer defeated Andy Roddick in straight sets... 6-3, 7-5, 7-5. Federer dominated the entire match. he had relatively easy service games... served more aces w/ no double faults... more winners. awesome. frell... Federer even had more challenges go his way. good luck to him in the final.

Federer reminds me of Pete Sampras. too bad no current female player like blond goddess Steffi Graf. love her.

I don't see how announcers call Federer vs Roddick a rivalry considering Federer's record against Roddick is 16-2. Roddick = fugly American. painful to watch him complain complain complain. wicked serve... but that's about it.

Federer made it look easy. Roddick always looks like he's strugglin' against him. Roddick = awesome tennis player... but he looks like an amateur... especially w/ his 2-handed backhand.

Lost - Jughead

current song: Just Dance by Lady GaGa on Da Bomb 102.7 FM

Saint Andrew's Cathedral doubled as Oxford.

no celebrity sightings. I remember seeing trailers and a production crew at the Ala Moana beach parking lot several weeks ago. don't know if Lost filmed a scene there.

Daniel Faraday = stupid. time = 1954. ageless eye liner/guyliner applier Richard Alpert on the island at that time. H-bomb on island. Daniel says that he's there to diffuse it. Richard doesn't believe him. Daniel says that he wouldn't kill Charlotte, the woman he loves. what's the significance of her being able to speak sexy Korean fluently?

again... Daniel = stupid. why mention his love for Charlotte? if or when the time comes, Richard can use Charlotte against Daniel.

this show's not making any sense. Ben let Michael and his son Walt go back to the states. no time jump for those remaining on the island at the time. and yet when Oceanic Six people leave... all of a sudden... time jumps occur. doesn't make sense.

$2.149 per gallon for unleaded gas at Costco.

Christian recreates w/ hottie Roxy St. James. they met at a breast cancer support group. couple of her family members had breast cancer. she's perfectly fine... but she believes she too will have breast cancer... wants to remove them as a precaution. Save A Prayer by Duran Duran background music during her operation. Christian doesn't remove her breasts... instead one afternoon Roxy goes to the practice... plugs in an electric knife... slices off her left breast in the waiting area. gross... but yet watched this scene a few times.

Olivia wants to get her face done. she's on anti-depressants... didn't tell doctors... she dies cuz her drugs lethal mix w/ the anesthesia. I wonder if Portia de Rossi wanted to get written off the show cuz she and Ellen DeGeneres plan to start a family. her tranny lookin' tv daughter Eden makes an appearance.

Hillinger = mole. to Moss, he's like: Walker was a good agent. he must have received a call from Emerson, who witnessed Bauer and Almeida bury her.

hottie Chloe makes an appearance in this ep. she and Bill save Walker.

Almeida shoots Emerson in the shoulder and in the neck. awesome. watched this scene several times.

Motobo's wife = boss. he does whatever she says. the power of pheromones.

hottie Chloe inserts a tracking device, disguised as a tooth, into Motobo's mouth. he's like: are you FBI? Chloe: nah... I'm a stay at home mom. hot. talk dirty Chloe.

is Tim a mole? how does Dubaku know his number? Dubaku uses the CIP device... planes collide. explosion shown over the glorious capitol. not as impressive as the mushroom cloud in a past season.

Henry has been sitting on hottie Samantha's couch for at least 40 minutes. she arrives at her apartment. I thought she would put up a fight. instead agent Gedge stabs her from behind. that's it? no sexy fight scene? he plans to hang Henry from the 2nd floor... paralyzing drug starts to wear off... Henry chokes Gedge... they fall to the floor. Gedge hits floor 1st w/ Henry on top still choking him. Gedge = dead.

in next week's preview tracking device in Motobo's mouth worked. Bauer and Almeida start shooting around Dubaku's control room. they should recover the CIP device next week. Jon Voight's character, who has yet to make an appearance, must be up to something worse for the remainder of the solar day.

Battlestar Galactica - A Disquiet Follows My Soul

current song: Give It To Me by Timbaland on Da Bomb 102.7 FM

single released in 2007. UK #1 2 cycles ago... Grace Kelly by Mika.

Tigh and Six excited about her pregnancy. she's like: the Cylon nation will survive. I'm wondering: wouldn't she want to tell Cavil about the pregnancy? she can strike a deal w/ him to protect Tigh and all the other Sixes... study his and her circuitry in exchange for protection.

Tyrol's kid has renal failure. he finds out he's not the baby's daddy. what? Cally's a slut? damn. she and hottie naughty Tory could've been gal pals. too bad Tory killed her. Cally wanted to get an abortion... but illegal. now this makes sense. gotta increase the population... bring it back up to 50 billion one at a time.

earlier Apollo mentioned that they need Cylon technology to improve their jump capabilities to find a planet before they run out of food and supplies. Roslin throwing away all her medication doesn't make sense. how selfish. they don't have unlimited drug supplies. she should have given her medication to other sick people who would want them. she's exercising... running around the ship. dozens of reporters still alive and yet she has no SS bodyguards?

Gaeta and Kara have heart to heart conversation. he verbally attacks her. she's like: is this how you get your kicks gimp?... oh wait... half kicks. brutal.

Zarek and the quorum vote not to allow Cylons aboard ships w/out the permission of its people. fuel supply ship jumps. now this part makes sense... a ship that can process and synthesize fuel. Zarek's arrested. he and Gaeta plot n scheme.

in my last entry I wondered why the humans didn't split up and colonize one world here... another world there. Baltar and his followers could have settled on a world and be spiritual there. in next week's previews it looks like a civil war.

watched this match on the BYU channel. announcers mentioned UH coach Mike Wilton's a Mormon. I did not know that... learned something new today. are all or most students at BYU Mormon? one announcer's like: so and so player's from country xyz... I served my mission there.

I just did a quick search... according to wikipedia.org about 98% of its students are Mormon. the BYU fans who heckled the UH players must not be Mormon.

BYU runs a quick offense. uber-fast. disappointed w/ Hawaii. they lost the 1st set... lead 26-22 in the 2nd... but lost 30-28. disgusted. didn't bother watching the 3rd set. BYU swept UH. Hawaii has to be able to close out sets to win matches. UH has a 6 match losing streak and is 0-4 in MPSF play.

Sean Carney kicks ass. Carney = setter stud. passing problems for UH... yet Carney had amazing set after amazing set. he bettered the ball. now if only UH can stay in system and close out matches.

in other MPSF matches w/ teams from the Pac-10... on Friday... #3 Stanford lost to #6 USC and #8 UCLA swept San Diego. on Saturday... Stanford lost to #4 Pepperdine and USC swept Pacific.

the survivors stuck on the island now jump from one moment in time to another. gimme a break. why now? when Michael and his son left the island... why no time jump for those left on the island? gimme a break.

attorney general (always gotta have irritating lawyers in each season) wants to investigate agent Walker for torturing. frell... she got the info she wanted and arrived 1st on scene. Emerson's team captures her... Jack ordered to shoot her. he's like: trust me I'll get you through this alive. she kneels down... he shoots... bullet grazes her neck... she collapses... Jack kicks her into ditch... covers her w/ plastic... she's bug eyed. Jack and Tony ordered to bury her. whoops. she's watching them shovel dirt into the pit.

Henry Taylor paralyzed by his SS bodyguard. he and Samantha will be killed. in next week's preview Taylor's communicating w/ his eyes... warning Samantha. she must have mace in her purse. they'll escape. then somehow they'll meet w/ hottie Chloe who will open up the files.

they arrive at Earth... find wasteland... what do they expect? after watching Life After People... w/ no one to maintain buildings... roads... well manicured gardens... crop land... nature takes over. they determine planet nuked 2000 cycles ago. Dualla finding jacks? please. what surprised me though... she shoots a bullet into her skull.

during the 1st commercial break I'm thinkin': why does everybody have to be together? the ships must go to some planet to replenish inventory. how can there be an endless supply of spirits and smokes? if there are less than 40,000 people left... drop several thousand off a planet here... another planet there. that way humanity can survive on several planets.

remains found on Earth. 13th tribe = colony of Cylons. huh? basically they nuked themselves. hmmm... perhaps they are human.

Kara found remains of her craft and herself. huh? instead of bringing back evidence to test for DNA she burns the body. what an idiot. she's like: if that's me lying there... then what am I? then I'm thinkin': please don't let this be like Lost w/ time travel involved.

Tigh gets his aquatic on and flashes. wife Ellen's trapped under rubble during the holocaust. she's like: everything's in place... we'll be reborn together. Saul believes her to be the 5th.

hmmm... I wonder though if Dualla is the final Cylon. I wonder if she flashed when she touched the jacks. Tyrol, Anders and hottie naughty Tory remembers living on the planet cycles ago. so... perhaps Dualla killed herself cuz she knew she would be reborn.

Nip/Tuck - Big Baby Sean

current song: Koochy by Armand Van Helden

Sean in a baby diaper cracked me up. I knew his student lover had a mamma complex. she's like: you're a good boy... you're a big boy... I'm gonna make you smooth like a baby. she shaves his pubes off... which makes him get off. naughty baby... naughty mommy. another night of recreation... w/ Sean on his back... she's like: close your eyes... be a good boy... trust mommy. she puts a diaper on him. it would have been funnier he had on a huge Pampers... but she put on a cloth diaper. he throws her out of the place.

show started off w/ husband and wife farmers who look like lesbians. husband wants to look manly... Raj performs successful surgery... wife thanks Raj w/ oral recreation... husband ok w/ it. Raj takin' a piss... wife stands next to him. Raj's like: you have a penis. s/he's like: it goes along w/ my balls.

MPSF Volleyball: #3 Pepperdine 3 - #11 Hawaii 1

current song: Say Hello by Deep Dish

UH lost to Pepperdine in 4 sets. after losing the 1st set UH came back and actually led at the halfway point of the 2nd. what the frell happened? announcer 1: here come the Waves. announcer 2: more like a tsunami. boooo... hisss. Pepperdine won the 2nd set w/ a kick ass block.

in the 3rd set Hawaii trailed... but kicked ass the last 2/3 of the set... winning 30-27. I hoped the team would carry that momentum and win the 4th set forcing a 5th. nope. to make it worse Pepperdine didn't earn match point... Sean Carney served the ball out. boooo.

Pepperdine's Paul Carroll = uber-vball stud. wicked swing. awkward... non-conventional approach. when he attacks it seems like he's under rather than behind the ball. he still kills w/ authoritay. one major irritation... that girl likes to play w/ her hair. I've seen players... when making an awesome kill or block... point their finger to the sky to thank their god. Carroll... after every point... likes to make her bangs messy.

I also don't understand UH's serving specialists. they sit out most of the game... coach brings them in to serve tough... but most times they serve into the net or out.

UH = MPSF cellar dweller w/ 0-2 conference record.

current song: Wish I Didn't Miss You by Angie Stone

UH lost to Pepperdine in 4 sets. Hawaii actually won the 1st set 30-24... but Pepperdine came back to win the next 3.

1st time seeing outsider hitter Brennon Dyer in action. announcers entertaining. they're like: Brennon 'on fire' Dyer this and Brennon 'on fire' Dyer that. highlight of the match... Dyer gave a facial, a 6-pack to Tyler Jaynes. set to 'on fire' Dyer... 3 Pepperdine blockers... ball goes over the massive block... ball smashes into Jaynes... crowd goes wild... announcers laugh... KFVE replays facial a couple times... I rewind and watch several more times. in another point Dyer kicked the ball back over to the Pepperdine side... landed w/in the court... point Hawaii. I thought that if a player touches a ball w/ his foot it had to remain on his side of the court. perhaps a rule change. later in the match Pepperdine blocking machine made its appearance. announcers start callin' Dyer... 'was on fire'.

rematch set for tomorrow night. Hawaii falls to 0-1 in MPSF play while Pepperdine remains perfect overall.

Stanford - Director's Cup Final Fall Standings Leader

current song: Just Dance by Lady GaGa on Hot 93.9 FM

$2.119 per gallon for unleaded gas at Costco.

3 Pac-10 institutions top the Director's Cup final fall standings. #1 Stanford, #2 Oregon and #3 USC. Pac-10 football impressive in its bowl games... perfect 5-0. football teams added points to Oregon's and USC's totals helping those universities make it a 1-2-3 sweep for the Pac.

3 other Pac-10 schools reside in the top 20... #8 Washington, #12 Cal and #20 UCLA. during the fall the Pac-10 captured only 3 national titles. Pac-10 overall athletic dominance should accelerate when its winter and spring sports compete for more championships.

agent Hillinger and his pretend wife must be moles. he wants her to land safely cuz she must be carrying something important w/ her on the plane. Hillinger can make more money working against the government. speaking of money... I will win the Mega Millions. anyway... they'll be killed later on in the solar day.

current song: Where I Stood by Missy Higgins on KSSK 92.3 FM

single released in 2007. UK #1 2 cycles ago... A Moment Like This by Leona Lewis.

last night USC almost upset #1 Penn State, the defending national champions, in 5 sets. I have yet to see Penn State in action. hopefully I will get to watch its match vs Hawaii tomorrow for it will be the only time I get to see them play until the NCAAs. since Penn State almost lost... does it deserve its #1 ranking? or is USC ranked lower than it should be? the season just started. who knows?

tonight I watched my 1st MPSF match. USC swept Hawaii. not sure if this match will count towards the conference standings. what I do know... USC's Murphy Troy is a bad ass. a 6'8" 225# outside hitter, he's big... he's bad... he's burly. he can serve aces... he can spike and kill w/ authoritay from anywhere on the court... he can block... he can dig... he can set. shock and awe.

UH looks like a relatively short team. relative cuz most players stand taller than 6 feet but look short compared to the taller USC players.

tonight's match typical. receive serve, pass, set, kill. every now and then a block... once in a while a rally. love the men's power game. totally different from Pac-10 women's vball. looking forward when Stanford comes to town. lots of local boys playing for the Cardinal.

Nip/Tuck - Wheelchair Recreation

current song: Billie Jean by Michael Jackson on KSSK 92.3 FM

flashback to last season's ending. Colleen, played by hottie Sharon Gless, w/ bandages completely covering her face... pretends to be a patient and gets past building security. Sean's finishing operating on his daughter... Christian's talking on his mobile... Liz's getting gauze... Collen's looking for a knife. she stabs Sean 4x... he's on the floor bleeding w/ blood coming out of his mouth. had to watch this scene several times.

Sean's reaching for some machine connected to his daughter. amazing what a parent will do for his child. Colleen grabs him from behind and drags him to a room and locks the door. Liz enters operating room... slips on blood. thought she would be knocked out. she's yelling: Christian! Christian! Christian follows the blood trail.

in the locked room Colleen's like: what have I done?... I'm so sorry... what can I do? Christian's trying to kick the door open. Sean tells her to put pressure on his chest... he grabs a knife and stabs her. watched this scene several times as well.

4 months later Sean's in a wheelchair... still recovering. he tells Christian: you must be jealous my biceps are gettin' bigger. Christian: nah... only if you taught your dick how to drive your wheelchair.

Liz's back hurts cuz of her huge personalities. she wants personality reduction surgery. Liz: they're like LVMH handbags... very nice to look at... but not to lug around all the time. Christian: oh ok... let's give your belly button some room to breathe. good one.

Sean's not ready to do any surgery and so Christian has to perform the personality reduction himself. he gets to feel Liz up. he's like: ooooo... I get to look at your tatas... your bodacious Barbies... hey... I feel something here... when's the last time you went for an exam? Liz: I let my lovers do all the examining for me. then I'm thinkin: I wonder if they will become lovers or at least recreate? sure enough season preview shows Christian and Liz recreating.

Liz gets a mammogram. her personality is huge. she's fine... but Christian finds out he has breast cancer.

Matt's at his dads' place helping Sean w/ his therapy. Christian tells Sean he has breast cancer. they go out for dranks... meet a couple hotties... go back to their place and recreate. Christian looks bored. while his partner rides him like a cowgirl he's feelin' her personalities. she's like: are you giving me a breast exam?... I don't need a sympathy screw. she leaves. Sean's in his wheelchair w/ his parter riding him like a cowgirl... wheelchair and its occupants fall back on the floor. she's like: I think I'm addicted to wheelchair sex... let's go at it again.

Christian gets serious and asks Liz if she would take care of his son when he dies. Liz: of course!... I love him... but you're gonna be around a long time to keep pissin' me off. Christian has a successful surgery.

Sean dreams of Colleen's funeral. he sees himself in the coffin. he wakes up and walks to the bathroom w/ ease. Christian also can't sleep and goes to his bathroom. they look at their scarred selves in the mirror.

Allstate Sugar Bowl: #7 Utah 31 - #4 Alabama 17

current song: Flying With Angels by Na Leo Pilimehana on KSSK 92.3 FM

congrats to Utah. thank you for winning against the 2nd place team from the SEC. so sick of being bombarded by opinions (rather than facts) of SEC superiority. Utah also played Oregon State... the 2nd (3rd after tie-breakers) place team from my beloved Pac-10. a fact... OSU actually led Utah during parts of their game compared to Alabama, which trailed from the start. in fact Oregon State almost won its game against Utah... OSU up 28-20 late in the 4th quarter... eventually losing 31-28. still a loss is a loss... but at least a team from the Pac-10 lost by 3 compared to an SEC team losing by 14 against Utah. game situations different too... but here are some stats. against Utah... Oregon State's offensive yardage almost double that of Alabama... 405 vs 208. Pac-10 defense weak? hell no. OSU shut out Pittsburgh in their bowl game. I jest. anyway... Oregon State's defense compared to Alabama's, held Utah to 12 less net yards... 337 vs 349.

I should check some message boards. lots of threads dissin' the Pac-10... that will never change. I know the Pac-10 had a disastrous non-conference record this season... especially against the mountain west conference... going 2-6. damn you MWC! but at least the Pac-10 won against the MWC this season. w/ Utah's victory tonight the MWC went 2-0 against the SEC... the other win being Wyoming's victory at TN. somehow posters will defend the SEC's record against the MWC. should be entertaining reading.

Battle Of The Bulge: Coke 1 - Cardio 0

current song: Mama, I'm Coming Home by Ozzy Osbourne on KPOI 105.9 FM

single released in 1992. UK #1 17 cycles ago... Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.

spent New Year's Eve at a friend's establishment. I didn't pop firecrackers for the 1st time in a long time. at midnight my home state goes wild. love the sound of fireworks exploding. entire state of Hawaii welcoming the new cycle. tourists must be like: what the frell is goin' on here? awesome. it also rained... a sign of good luck, good fortune. rains also helped cleanse the state from all the smoke.

before I went to bed... stalemate... Coke 0 - Cardio 0. my thinking: only winners and losers. so I had a drank of Coke. 2008 ended w/ a Coke victory. that's ok because for December... I did 6 more cardio exercises than dranks. I get to decrease by 6% the number of calories I need to burn to earn a drank of my nemesis.

for January... I need to burn off 223 calories to earn a drank. when I go swimming or running, I have to do that exercise 22 (even solar days) or 23 (odd) minutes... and when I go walking, I have to walk 2.23 miles... to earn a drank.

from now on I will include all dranks other than water in my Battle of the Bulge count. the past few months I've been enjoying a lot of alcoholic dranks. I've enjoyed the company of my friends Guinness and Heineken.

Guinness = 170 calories... Heineken = 110 calories. average 140 calories = 1 drank of Coke. count will still be Coke # - Cardio #.
