Sometimes when I’m in da’ club I wonder how a parrapallegic might enjoy the dance-floor. Well, now I know.
Augusta, Ga. natives D-Money n Smoove have recently released the track, “Wheelchair Shawty” to the masses. If I cand have any thing to do with it this thing is about to go viral.
If you’ve read the “about nicname” section in my bio you know that I am employed as a line-cook. If you know anything about being a line cook on a Friday night you know where I’m coming from.
Tonight was especially busy at my restaurant. We were constantly trying to get out of the weeds and the sweat was definitely pouring out of every gland available from the time I clocked in to the time I clocked out. WE made it though and we made the company around $8,000 tonight. For my efforts I will take home around $50. Such is the life of the line-cook, especially one who is only two months on the job.
I wouldn’t say that I am a particularly great line-cook either. I mean, I get by and I give good effort and have a positive attitude but making a career out of it would probably leave me broke and depressed. For that reason I find myself quite thankful that I am finally back in school and pursuing my dream career of mega-journalist.
During the last five or so years I have worked in kitchens for about four of them, topping out at around 60 hours a week last year while D took maternity leave after giving birth to our son Max. During that time it became quite clear to me that I would not live a very fulfilling life if I were ton continue on that path. So I made a point to get enrolled in school as soon as possible.
Tomorrow is an off day, filled with a wedding and college football, then it is back on the grind and thankfully — well at least in monetary terms — I am starting to get scheduled some more hours in the kitchen.
So to all you line-cooks out there “big ups,” you are true warriors that live a tough grind.
This is Sean Stephenson. He seems to have been posting videos on Youtube for quite some time. A friend posted this video of him on facebook and it needs to be shared. You are drawn in by his odd look but the dude is pretty inspirational. A man truly living live with a youthful bliss.
Keep rocking and rolling Sean.
Joaquin Phoenix sports a beard and makes creepy faces
Yes, October is coming to a close and that means one thing. It means is time to start growing out the facial-hair and become a wooly man-beast.
Both variations of the month-long celebration of grizzled manliness have facebook groups —–> Novembeard & No-Shave November , so you can compare your rugged face-mane to other non-shavers around cyberspace. There is also a Novembeard twitter, which I will be checking diligently as the bearding process goes along.
Though the rules say that you are supposed to start the month of November with a clean shave and then go from there. I break this rule because my face-pelt grows in lightly colored and isn’t very thick, and I want my beard to be epic so I cheat. I also plan on letting it grow until Christmas, maybe I can get a job as a mall Santa.
If you want to compare your beard to mine you can send them to the email (that I haven’t chosen yet), and I might put your greasy, bearded mug up on the net for all the world to see.
So it is almost November and it is time to grow out your beard and be a real man. If you still have any objections please take to heart the top ten reasons why you should grow some glorious chin-fur.

Check back in on November 1, 2010 for an update on my Novembeard progress. Below is picture of me with no beard, as you can see there is no where to go but up.
