Shaking Hands With Celebrities

Warning: This post is link-heavy

If you type "how do roosters impregnate hens" on MSN search, my blog comes in 10th position...By writing about that again, I'll probably climb a few notches.

Talking of climbing in search engine results unintentionally, Ron Wood, of Rolling Stones fame was seen in a few bars along the last few days. A few friends shook his hand. There was even a rumour that the Stones, staying at the Fairmont Banff Springs would play with 54-40 (They are the "support" band for the Stones concert in Calgary tomorrow, October 28th) at a local bar, the Rose and Crown. The whole thing was, of course, completely untrue, but it did bring a shitload of people to the Rose...

I want to say something about that whole "shaking hands with a star, getting their autograph, talking to them" thing. It must be a little unnerving when you are a celebrity to always be approached by strangers in any place. I understand the need to go talk to a star when you see one. After all, you might not know them, but you've seen them so many times that you might think you do, they at least are familiar to you. But for the celebrity, in this case Ron Wood, it must be weird to see all those unknowns coming to you saying stuff like, "hey, you're great man!", "wow, you're a legend", "dude, you rock" while you're trying to reach the shitters to take a crap (or in Woods' case, snort something, keeping the band's name real!). I guess you get accustomed to it, but never really used to it. All those people know you (again, they think they do) and you don't and don't really give ashit either...I know I'll have a hard time, and also a lot of fun with that when I'll be a star. That's why Tupperfan will become my celebrity avatar and I'll build a false image around that guy that will allow the real me to stay in the shadows...A little like Bruce Wayne actually became a false-image for what was supposed to be Wayne's original avatar: Batman (Great movie by the way). Am I joking? Not completely...

Time to go work on my celebrity status and my star alter-ego...

A message to spammers(sp?)

You know, the little message to the right telling you to send me emails about penis enlargement and shit...It wasn't really serious. For fuck sakes, I get almost a comment a day about it now!

Listen fuckers (I know you won't, but it feels good to rant anyway!), if I needed a bigger dick, I would go see a trusted medical specialist (who would probably laugh at me), not Mister Unknown Shithead Stranger who sells untested, unproven sugar pills on the web!

And what about fucking penis enlargement anyway? I mean, 90% of males have a 6" dick or about. Sure, a few inches more is nice, but you should have plenty of stuff to satisfy a girl (or a guy). If you don't, it's probably not the size that is the problem, it's you! Learn how to please the other, listen to your partner, read books about sexuality and for shit sakes, be creative once in a while!

Of course, some men have micro-penises, those guys could definetely use some help and confidence boost. But it's a minority and it would be a better idea to go see a doctor. As for myself, I have a micro-penis and it isn't that bad, girls can talk in it! A MICRO penis, don't you get it? Ah, forget it!

So what's new Tup? Not that much. Tired, still working two jobs ang getting closer to buy that damn laptop. Then, work a little more to buy an old van and then fuck the grocery! So, of course, working 72 hours a week doesn't give me much time for a life and therefore for interesting stuff to tell. I can say that I've slowly became friend with one of the girls I've been hanging a lot with recently. We do those huge meals and have a great time and you could tell there was that thing slowly growing between Isabelle (Well, yeah, of course that's her name, what do you think it was? A cereal brand?) and me. I'm pretty sure it's not love, but it isn't only sexual attraction...Might be just a really good friendship, I don't know what it is. It might actually be that I'm slowly getting out of the fucking expectations, the "needs". All that selfish shit that usually transorms the original exchange into a fight to get the other's love and that always ends with one draining all and moving on to the next person who can give love, and the other empty, not even having what he or she started with.

The ideal relationship is not to make one with the other, it's not to complete or feel fulfilled by the other, it's to become more than the sum of the two individuals. Two fulfilled persons joining to become...infinite? (That post was written over a quite long period while I was chatting on MSN, a few of the previous thoughts come from that conversation, which was itself inspired by the thinking I've been doing in the last month)

But what I wanted to say is that what was doomed to happen happened and we ended up in my bed a few days ago. Decided to call the morning off from job#1 and to enjoy the time. We finally went to sleep at 10AM (I was supposed to go to work at 7AM). We we woke up at 3PM (I still had to get to the second job) and there was a little surprise...There was a huge amount of snow on the ground!!! And yet, it was quite mild. Strangely, despite the weather being that good, the snow is not melted yet. I love the mountains! All the weirdness of this place. Can't wait to move on! Hehehe

Time to go eat some pizza!!!

Profit and Loss

Don't really have that much to post, I mean, I'm working so much that I don't have a life anymore...

It might be that I'm tired too, because I usually can post about nothing and make it last until everybody's asleep including me (The end of the post would therefore look like that: fhfkdflfnbu b8fn43funmf ;f,dcijdfh dinugdsaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaalllllllllllllllllllllll llllllllllllll llllllllllllllllllkjjjj jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj)

But what can I say? I feel great, I met a few new friends at Keller Foods and I just realized i have 10% off when I do my groceries there...Quite nice! Apart from that, I might have put my dad into trouble about an unpaid speeding ticket from 2 oe 3 years ago...that will teach me to renew my license and give them the updated info! Seriously, pay your fines and tickets on the spot, it's cheaper and much easier.

I think there's a few bithday's coming soon. Mathieu Ouimet, Jee's (Is it in fucking September or October man?) and Charlotte's. Happy birthday to all!

Steph and Rhyms, you'll be back here quite soon, hope Montréal treated you well! And Olivier, bro, what's up with you? Give some news! Ah forget it, I'll just ask mom and dad...C'tune joke, écris crisse!

Hockey Nation

Tonight was the return of NHL hockey! Yay! And the Habs won 2-1 against the Bruins! Hooray! Great goals by Bullis and Ryder! Saw the game at the Elk Pub because I was hungry and there's no food at the Pump and Tap. And we don't get RDS on the cable here. Shitty.

So why didn't I post before, been a while eh? It's because I now have two full-time jobs: 40 hours at the Voyager (I've been promoted supervisor. In addition to my housekeeper, supervisor and houseman duties, I'm also staff accom manager, replacing Rémi while he's in vacation in Montréal. Don't worry Rhyms, everything is under control here, never saw the place that clean and we got new furniture! Those guys from Québec City never stop, and there is 2 more of them now!) and 32 hours at Keller Foods where I am a grocery clerk as well as a delivery man.

The delivery part of the job is actually neat, driving around town in a good old Dodge van, seeing great vistas of the surrounding mountains. Hey J-S and Jee, I'm delivering quite often at your Banff center...It's pretty nice up there! The grocery part is quite boring but hey, the ones who have known me for a while knows that I'm used to that. Just realized it's my 10th year working in various groceries...Happy birthday! Fuck...

Here's a picture of me proudly posing with my truck...

So why two jobs? To buy a laptop and a car. I'll probably will work at Keller's for no more than 2 months. Managed to go out a few times, but it's actually good that I'm working that much, I'm a little tired of the scene and I'll save even more money!

Nothing else to add for now, just wanted to say I'm still alive, I'll post again within the very next days! Oh and I really want to see that Serenity movie! For those who don't know, it's a sequel to Fox's Firefly. A great sci-fi show by the Buffy and Angel's creator but that didn't make it in the ratings wars. For J-S sake's (Want news man, been a while!), I saw Smallville's new season premiere and it was quite excellent I must admit. Hope you saw it man!

Here's a few more pics before leaving:

My new U.S.S. Enterprise pipe that was taken by security but that I was able to sneak out of my boss's office (along with the security report) the next day (Man I was pissed that night! That cost 80 bucks you know!)

And that's a pic of an Elk on my street, Cougar. I also saw a wolf a few weeks ago. When I took the picture, I was quite close and it's not recommended, since we are in the mating season and the males are aggressive. The look he's giving me makes it clear I should actually step back, which I did right after taking the photo.

Until then, time to go build my newly acquired Lego set! There wasn't a lot of choice, but the pieces are good enough and it'll look cool as a display for now...
