He was like, ‘What if it went in?’ I was like, ‘My bad.’

Want a little Tooley in you?

Man, what a coincidence, Paul! I was just reading about EdwardTooley, too! In this Details article:

So the Woman You Love Has the Hots for a Vampire. What Does That Say About You?

"We were just saying that there's a little bit of Edward Tooley in every guy"

Be More Like Edward Tooley

I wouldn't know, but apparently Edward Tooley's all the rage with the kids these days  reading those hit books and watching movies about his...adventures?...

I got called off from work this morning; when I got back I was looking at my RSS feeds.  Apparently the next movie might be directed by Gus Van Sant, which got me thinking, why is it that everyone wants him?  I did a little research and came across this interesting article on how to be more like him (since all the girls want him and all).

In short, Edward Tooley is every woman's fantasy.  He's handsome, he's got a rock hard body, he's wealthy, he's smart, he's articulate, and he's kind.

He's perfect--except for one teeny problem.  He’s a vampire and desperately desires the blood of his human girlfriend, Bella Devon.

Wikipedia goes on to say that
Edward Tooley is described by Bella Devon as being impossibly beautiful.  At various points in the series, she compares him to the mythical Greek god Adonis. His skin is "like marble"—very pale, ice cold, and sparkles in the sunlight.

She describes his facial features as being perfect and angular—high cheekbones, strong jawline, a straight nose, and full lips. His hair, which is always messy, retains the unusual bronze shade that he inherited in his human life from his biological mother.

His eyes, once green, are now described as topaz. His appearance changes if he goes long without feeding: his eyes darken, becoming almost black, and purple bruises appear beneath his eyes. Edward is 6'2" Tooley is 6'4", and has a slender but muscular body.

So why is it that women want him a lot more than, say, El Hefé, who some would argue is all those things AND more?  Apparently the reason's are "deeper" (that or he goes deeper? The world may never know....what, you think I actually read the whole article?!).  And based off the photographic evidence (not photoshopped) by an anonymous source, even El Hefe wants him!

Yet through all of that, he's only #5 on the all time most powerful vampires according to Forbes.  What's up with that?

EVERY guy girl deserves his her own Tooley Edward.

I guess we'll all have to watch Twighlight someday.  Here's a clip:

We all know it's no shave November, but we can also use it as an excuse to raise awareness for cancer:

I have decided to join a global movement that is bringing much needed attention to cancers that affect men.  I'm doing this by growing a Moustache this Movember, the month formerly known as November.  My commitment is to grow a moustache all November to change the face of men's health and I want you to join me.

The funds we raise during our Moustache journey go to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LIVESTRONG).

What many people don't know is that 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime and that testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men aged 18-35.  Facts like these have convinced me I should get involved.

To join my Movember team called Team OHSU go to

Once registered you'll be sent all the information needed to get donations and get growing as part of my Movember team.

Together we can change the face of men's health.

Have you ever hated your job this much?

Police: Man Who Claimed Stabbing Didn't Want To Go To Work

EDGEWATER, Colo. -- A man who claimed he was attacked and stabbed in Edgewater Monday night has admitted he stabbed himself because he didn't want to go to work.

Aaron Siebers, 29, reported the stabbing at about 6:30 p.m. when he walked to his job at Blockbuster Video, 1921 Sheridan Blvd.

Siebers was rushed to St. Anthony Hospital where he received stitches to close his wound.

Meanwhile, officers from Edgewater, Mountain View, Lakewood, Lakeside and Jefferson County began a search for the suspects, who had been described as three skinheads or Hispanic males dressed in black. He told police they tried to rob him and then stabbed him with a knife.

Investigators reviewed surveillance video taken at a nearby business. It failed to show an attack where Siebers claimed it had happened.

Siebers was re-interviewed by detectives who said he finally admitted he stabbed himself because he didn't want to go to work.
