Bad Photos and Bai Signing off …

The Bai Train is approaching it’s final destination, and I’d like to personally thank you all for coming along for the ride! Erin should be just taking to the air right about now, and is on her way back to Canada.

In case you missed this week, here’s what went on:

I hope that I’ve entertained you all, since I had big blogging shoes to fill. The blog duties return to Erin and I get to say my farewell. However, not before posting some awful pics that happened over the course of the week AND a video of Erin.

We all take bad pictures. They’re unavoidable. Much like a train wreck though, we can’t look away. They’re so gruesome, yet so compelling to keep. It all starts off when someone takes a self portrait of themselves, trying to capture the fact that they’re at some place where you’re not, and have that place be in the background while they put on their false smile for the picture. If that wasn’t bad enough, someone has to go and be aware that you’re taking an already poor excuse for a picture, and make it worse by doing this:

Two please!

… also props to the ugly ass shades in this pic. 🙂

Next we have the pic that “takes itself”. I’m not sure I believe in that excuse. Last I checked, cameras don’t function without a person pressing the button.

"I'd like to ... ass-k ... you a question ..."

Erin: Whoops! My camera just took a picture of your ass Bai, all by itself!

Bai: Sure it did …

Then there are those pictures where you have to put on a stupid hat. More stupidly, you agree to put on said hat, and then take direction on how to pose/stand for the proceeding picture to be taken. Even worse is when the camera woman can’t explain to you that you need to lean forward because you’re out of the frame with the hat on! After several minutes of being directed poorly AND laughed at (because you’re wearing a silly hat), the result is this:

"Does the shark look like it's eating my head?!?" - Bai

Everyone loves balloon animals and creations right? Well, have you ever seen a Ariel from Disney’s Little Mermaid in balloon form? Even better, have you stopped a child carrying one just to take a picture of it, with a proud mom looking on? Most importantly though, when did Ariel get so busty?

Hey Ariel, do you have a permit for those guns?

Lastly we have the ever popular … take a picture while someone is talking picture. Not only does it make them look silly, everyone will ask “Was Bai drunk in this picture?!

No caption required.

As a special treat, I have a video of Erin playing her Zumba Fitness game for the Wii that she bought while she was here. Truth be told, she’s already a Zumba pro, which is why she knows the steps, but seriously, it looks ridiculous. Also of note, I already know I laugh like a monkey. I had to upload this to YouTube and link it to you, since embedding video on this blog site isn’t free. Please note that it’s unlisted, so the only way to view this video is via the link posted here. If Erin wants it to be public, I’ll change it.

Erin plays Zumba Fitness – Bai laughs – Leela stands around and sniffs the floor

 

And with that my friends, I take my leave. Thank you again for coming along with me on the Bai Train! Adios!

Checklist of Awesome

Truth be told … I’m awesome.

That said, not only is Erin coming to visit The San Francisco Bay Area, she’s coming to visit the San Francisco Bai Area. Keep your panties on ladies, I’m talking about my apartment, which, like me, is also awesome. I’m sure a study somewhere will show that people like awesome things. People also like awesome accommodations. Do you have any out of town friends that would love to visit, but just don’t want to stay with you due to your lack of awesome? Worry not, I am here to assist.

Awesome is closer than you think, but it will require a few things. With my simple Checklist of Awesome, your pad will be the place to stay!

The Checklist of Awesome:

  • Queen sized air mattress
  • Big tv
  • Video games
  • Rock Band and instruments
  • Food
  • Drink
  • Fully functional toilet
  • Chubby animal
  • You (optional)

Queen sized air mattress:

Bow chicka wow wow ...

Look at this monstrosity. It’s amazing. It’s like the Rolls Royce of inflatable mattresses. Look at how happy those people are! “Screw foam, screw springs! Honey, we’re gettin’ an AIR MATTRESS!” Also, look at her face. Clearly she just had the time of her life. – Queen sized air mattress – CHECK!

Big tv:

 

"Hey Bai, your tv is pretty big!" ... "That's what She said!"

Big tvs are important. Why? Because they’re awesome. Also important for the next item on our list … notice the PS3, Wii and Xbox 360. The big tv allows for better viewing, and you don’t have to hear any whining about it being to small, unless your friend has a bigger tv. If they do, then you are not awesome enough … maybe you should go to their place? – Big Tv – CHECK!

Video Games:

I have a few ..

Video games are quintessential to the “hang out” experience. It’s 2011, people don’t talk anymore. This is a digital age. We’d rather be social in a cyber capacity by updating lame-o social networking sites like Facebook, or Twitter with our mundane activities. Video games take the edge off of having to actually converse, and goes straight to shit talking. You are absolutely certain that your buddy is going to call you out and you are going to respond in kind with the beat down of their life. “BAM! BAM! BAM! Whack! Whack! When’s it EVER gonna stop?! Survey says … NOT … VERY … SOON!!!” Who’s up for some Mario Kart?! I’ll OWN YOU!

Video Games – CHECK!

Rock Band and instruments:

Rooooock Baaaaaaaannnnd! You don't have to put on the red light ...

This is obviously an extension of the previous item, but still required for Awesomeness all the same. While you can still be competitive, Rock Band challenges you to cooperate with your friends, and several of them simultaneously. It also allows you to call them out when they suck balls at the game. Crank on No-Fail mode, and you’ve got yourself in-house Karaoke with plastic instruments. Don’t lie, you know you love it. You feel so bad ass with that plastic guitar or drum sticks in your hands. Then there’s the whole “Who wants to be the singer?!” problem. The only person that wants to sing the most … is the person who THINKS they are incredibly bad ass at singing, and are absolutely terrible. That person is the frontman to your video rock badassery … and you wouldn’t have it any other way.

Optional: If you have a mullet wig like I do, pop that sucker on and now you’re an 80’s rock star! –Rock Band and instruments – CHECK!

Food:

nom nom nom

Friends with no food, are just friends. Friends WITH food … are freakin’ AWESOME! Don’t be a hater, get your ass to the grocery store and stock up! -Food – CHECK!

Drinks:

Ahhhh beer ... my one true weakness ... my Achilles heel if you will ...

Seriously, if you don’t have anything to drink, I’m not coming over, and you are not Awesome. Water is not a drink, everyone has that. I could stay home and drink water you cheap bastard. Added bonus, beer can be consumed in conjunction with any item on this list! -Drinks – CHECK!

Fully Functional Toilet:

...of questionable cleanliness ...

This is pretty much the most basic of requirements. Trust me, a working toilet in the time of need is quite Awesome. Extra points for it being clean. Chicks dig a clean bathroom … high five to you good sir … or madam.

-Fully Functional Toilet – CHECK!

Chubby Animal:

O Hai! Aye iz Awwsum kitteh!

Animals. They’re adorable. They melt your heart, and the hearts of your friends. They make you appear sensitive, when really you’re a jerkface. They’re also inherently hilarious, soft, squishy (cuz they’re chubby!) People love animals. They can’t resist. Even if your animal is mean, people will STILL try to chase them and pet them and talk to you about them etc. “Wow that’s so awesome, you have a kitty?! She’s SOOOOOOOOO sweet! You’re so awesome for saving a life!” … Yeah … I am aren’t I? -Chubby Animal – CHECK!

You:

This is a picture of my tits! 🙂

With the exception of house sitting (no one house sits at a non-awesome joint … no one!), you have to be Awesome yourself to warrant a visit from your friends. Your awesome stuff can be found anywhere, but you’re (allegedly) one of a kind! Now, if you have all the items on this list and feel that you’re sufficiently Awesome, but still have no friends visiting, you aren’t going to like what I’m about to tell you. Maybe you should sit down  …

I’m Awesome!

Dinner of Champions

Alright! E-Bai is back in the blog saddle! How was your day? Mine was AWFUL! 8am – 8pm today! Now I know what you’re thinking, “But Bai, you worked a twelve hour day, how did you have time to make dinner?” Well my friends, I’m going to share with you a FANTASTIC dinner, that is not only delicious, but incredibly easy to make!

What you need:

  • Milk
  • Cereal
  • Bowl
  • Beer
  • Bottle opener
  • Glass Baby Boot – Chilled (May also be substituted with a mug, stein, or brown paper bag)

Your tool of destruction:

  • Spoon

The Dinner of Champions

Now that you have everything you need, we may begin. You’ll start off by opening the box of cereal (if you haven’t already). As you can see, for your viewing entertainment, I have a brand new box of Cookie Crisp. Does anyone know when the Cookie Cop and Criminal disappeared?! Who’s that Cookie Coyote? Anyways, after opening the box, you’re going to want to pour the desired amount of cereal into the bowl. I’m a fan of the 3/4th bowl of cereal.

Next, and this part is key … the milk:cereal ratio.

For those of you wanting an even milk:cereal ratio, you’re going to want to fill the bowl about halfway with milk as shown:

The Half-Half

However, if you’re a milk lover like yours truly, you’re going to go all in. “But Bai, that’s SO much milk, when do I stop?!” I’m glad you asked! The key to the milk lovers bowl of cereal lies in the pouring of milk until the first piece (in this case – cookie) falls out of the bowl. Now in case you couldn’t see it in the photo, I’ve carefully pointed it out for you …

 

The Milk Lover's Bowl

Notice the cookie …

Next comes the beer. Now, depending on your tastes, the beer may be poured into the boot prior to the pouring of the cereal and milk. Some people don’t want the cereal to soak too long. Hey man, it’s your world, and you can have as soggy or as crunchy cereal as you’d like. Anywho, I couldn’t pour the beer, hold the boot and take a pic at the same time, so make sure your boot’s angle is proper before making the poor from the bottle (or tap) so you don’t get too much head.

 

It’s almost time! Now before you dig in, you need to remember that it’s been a long day, and a person needs to be comfortable when partaking in the Dinner of Champions. This “eat at the kitchen table” stuff just won’t do. Park that fine fanny of yours down in your favourite sittin’ chair, or if you’re like me, you prefer the nook of the couch, where the only table I know, is the arm. Coaster up though, you don’t want a mark on that nice end table of yours!

 

Dinner is served!

Yeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Right on! Give yourself a pat on the back! You’ve just made the Dinner of Champions! Am I right?! Of course I am! What did I tell you? Simple!

 

Hell Yeah! The Dinner of Champions!

Here’s a note for all you milk lovers out there … there will be a moment in your dinner enjoyment when all you are left with, is your beer and milk. Now, this is known as The Crossroads. You’ve got two choices:

  1. Add more cereal
  2. Drink all the milk

The best part is … you win no matter what you choose! 😀

The Crossroads

Whoa whoa WHOA Bai … I’m concerned … is this nutritious?

AB-SO-LUTELY! Look, don’t be a Nancy Boy (or girl). Let me read the box for you … “WholeGrain & Calcium … Guaranteed” Do you think they would make that claim if it weren’t true? Don’t forget, there are nutritious hops in your beer too. Still not convinced? I’ll even read some highlights from the side of the box … “Nutrition FACTS” (emphasis added), “Vitamin“, “Iron“, “Zinc” (ZINC! Where would we be without zinc?!), “CONTAINS WHEAT AND SOY INGREDIENTS” – That shit is in caps yo! That’s serious business! I’m convinced.

What if my kids don’t like Beer X and Cereal Y?

Look, I’m mentally not much older than your kids, but seriously, variety is the spice of life. Give them options. Tonight was a Cookie Crisp/Sierra Nevada night for me. Maybe tomorrow is a Special K/Guinness evening. Who knows?! All I know is that kids love choices, so buy them the cereal and beer they like. Oh and don’t forget to watch your favourite show!

Why limit yourself?!

Thundercats HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

BlogJacked!

That’s right, Erin is on vacation and I’m takin’ over! Just to set the embarrassment bar high to kick things off, I’m pretty sure right about now Erin and Sandra look something like this …

What-what?!?

For those who don’t know me, I’m known as Bai (sounds like Bay), I’m constantly scowling, listening to heavy metal, gaming and being all around jerky to most people.

As you can see in this time line, I’ve gone from being an ugly kid to an even uglier adult …

My artistic talents know no bounds in terms of photo editing!

…to being possibly down right retarded.

Maaaatttt Daaaaamon!

The Bai-Train is gearing up to go full steam ahead and I challenge you all to come on board! I’m going to blog Sun – Sun during this hijack, with my own unique (albeit flawed) perspective on life.

There is a good chance that Erin will loose readers, BUT there’s a good chance she’ll get some new ones via the hate mail I’m bound to get. I’ll also be reading and responding to comments! No holds barred! WOO WOO!

-Bai

$h*! my Students Say.

As a supply teacher, I get to meet many different children of all ages, on a daily basis.   I also get to hear many questions, statements, opinions, and thoughts in general that are quite ridiculous/hilarious/shocking/and just plain awesome.  This blog post my friends, is an homage to those students and their thoughts….

  • “Ms. F you look like you’re a lot younger there.”  (after seeing a picture of me at my wedding (a month before)…back-handed compliment, or just sad about how I look on a daily basis?! haha
  • student: “Erin!”  me: “Oh, we can’t call me by my first name today- I’m your teacher!”  student: “Oh, ok.  Everyone this is my aunt, Mrs. E”.  (After teaching my niece for a class)
  • “F*ck off.”  (for real, and quite a bit actually.)
  • Me: “I don’t want to hear your voice for the rest of the movie.” Student: “I don’t want to hear yours either.” (Maybe my favourite.)
  • student: “and I was like whatever bitch”  me: “Ummm, did you realize there’s a teacher right behind you?”  student: “Oh sh*t sorry!  I thought you were a student!”  (lunch room duty in a grade 8 class)
  • this one didn’t happen to me, but a friend….  student: “I don’t like the sound of your name, but I sure do like the look of you” (a grade one said that beaut.)
  • “Hey Mrs. Flowery!”  (last name = Flattery)
  • “Maybe I’ll listen to you when you’re a real teacher.” (Another wonderful grade 8 student)
  • “Ohhhhhh.  Your scarf is just beautiful!”  This was a kindergartener (boy!) who said this as he was stroking the scarf in his hand.
  • “Are you and my real teacher sisters?  Cause you look the same, but she’s got wrinkles, so she must be older.” (grade one)

These next 2 aren’t from my students, but my nephews on Christmas this year…

  • “All I wanted was money.  I just wanted money!”  (4 year old boy after getting some Mac trucks as his gift.)
  • “How did you know?!”  (different nephew after we gave him DS games for the DS Santa gave him that morning!) 🙂

I know I’ve got soooooo many more, but do you think I can remember them now that I want to?  nope.

If any of you teachers have some of your own funny comments from kids, reply!  We’ll see how many we can add to the list! 🙂

first book(s) chosen!

sooooooooooo, after posting the top 100 list, and saying i was going to start reading them, i didn’t really go anywhere from there.  i didn’t tell  you what my goal was (well other than the obvious), and i didn’t really say where i was starting from.  i have chosen my starting point- The Chronicles of Narnia.  I have definitely read the first 2 (The Magician’s Nephew, and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe), but as a refresher will  read the whole 7 book series. 

any faves of the 7?  i can’t wait to get started!

speaking of the Chronicles of Narnia….. who hasn’t already seen the SNL digital short??  hilarious.  for reals.

ok, i’ll let you know how i make out! 

Oh, if you wanted we could start an online book club,  and we can update everyone on here in the comments section about how everyone is doing, and what we all thought about the books!

OK- here’s how it will go!  Everyone who wants to can start with The Magician’s Nephew!  And in a week (next Friday) we’ll start commenting on here and give our opinion on the book!  Alright peeps, don’t let me down!  I know some of you read the blog at least weekly, as I can tell how many people read it every day!  For real I’d like to see some comments on Friday! 😀

later gators!
