5. Almost finishing my christmas shopping - I know, for most people, even thinking about christmas shopping is a few months away.

And, as of this writing, I only have a few more people to get...avoiding the crazy christmas time malls and shoppers will be great.

4. Having drinks with Michael, Meghan and Melanie on saturday night.

3.Trading in some cds that I didnt need and getting more money than I thought I would in the trade....then, finding a collection of Royal Rumble matches for hella cheap and using some of the store credit I'd just gotten.

2. Seeing the Giants win the National leauge and go to THE WORLD SERIES !!!

1. Having a perfect Sunday morning with The Melanie !!

Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week...10-11-10

For The Week Of 10-11-10

5. Kick Ass - I thought the movie was okay, and this week decided to check out the graphic novel from the library. And while some panels were recreated exactly by the movie, this graphic novel ended up being far more bloody with more curse words. In short, it was real good.

4. Watching the Giants make it to the National Leauge Championship !!

3. Having Lunch with my Mom on Saturday

2. Spending a Sunday hanging out with Ashley and Melanie

1. Having a tasty sushi dinner with Melanie - I hadnt had sushi in awhile and Melanie surprised me by treating me to a great sushi dinner one night this week. I tried some new rolls and they were excellent.

So...that's it.

For The Week Of 10-4-10

5. Popeye's chicken is the shiznit !!?!?! - This week, after years of not having it,I tasted some popeyes chicken. And it was DAMN tasty !! The chicken, the mash potatoes and the biscuits...all good.

4. The Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite - Thanks to the library, I was able to read all six issues of this series (first mentioned in a previous Top 5). A fun read in which,unlike many comics these days, even the smallest panel held something important in the story. A good read.

3. Watching Game 1 Of The 2010 National League Division Series - In which the Giants won 1-0 vs. The Braves and Timmy stuck out 14 batters!!

2. Counting and rolling coins that we have been saving for most of the year, with Ashley and Melanie.

1. After spending a long day at the DMV, coming home to a quiet night of tv with Mel.

Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week...9-27-10

For The Week Of 9-27-10

HM : The Giants WIN the national league west !!

5. Watching the Giants beat the D'backs on wed night - Went to the game with Chris King and had a great time. This was aa week where every win got us closer to (that eventual) NL West title, so every win counted, big time. Good game, good company, good weather, tasty beers.

4. "Fuck You" by Cee-Lo Green - Don't let the expletive heavy title fool you, this song is a quirky gem. A soul sound with some funny lyrics. I've been playing this song all week.

3. X-Men : Second Coming - I've been waiting all summer to read this !! The third part in the "Messiah " trilogy (Messiah complex, Messiah War being the other two you SHOULD read) has been coming out in single issues all summer. Sadly, I didn't have the money to get all the issues then and waited patiently for the graphic novel to come out. And it was sure worth the wait !! With the death of two MAJOR characters and a half dozen more seriously hurt, this should shake things up for some time. A great read. If your an Xmen fan, check this out !!

2. Spending a fun Sunday morning with Mel and Ashley - Had a fun, relaxing morning with two of my favorite people in the world !! Even though I fell asleep while we were watching tv and had to cut the morning short to get ready for work (boo !!), I still had fun.

1. Having a great Saturday with My Mom, The Ashley and The Melanie !! - Had a great day with my family. Any time I'm with my favorite people is time well spent.

So...thats it.
