'Tis the Season

Are you freakin' kidding me.....Are you freakin' kidding me.....How freakin' cute is that picture? She didn't even cry or anything. God, she's the best in the biz.....the baby biz......she's bonafied.

I usually don't care for Christmas time, but this year I'm actually looking forward to it. I have my own little family, and we're all going to Portland to visit with the Fam. I can't wait for that. I miss Oregon so much. It was Ten degrees today....that sucks. I might not come back

All Clear

Yes we have no riots, we have no riots today! The Nazis had their rally and only about 50 of them showed up (instead of the 200 that they were claiming would be here). There were about 50 protestors and no riots. About a dozen people were arrested for crossing into areas that were restricted.

Good times,

Don't Be Hatin'

You Know I just look down at this little face and It's hard for me to believe that there is so much hate in the world.

I will shortly going into work because the neo-nazis have returned to Toledo. They will be rallying at the Government building downtown. A lot of people are pissed off about this and plan to be down there as well. The authorities have blocked off the area were they are going to rally with fences and metal detectors, but the last time a riot broke out it was in areas where the nazis weren't even at. I hope this thing just blows over without incident, but I got a feeling that this might be worse than last time, I hope I'm wrong.

Stay tuned,

The Z-Man

Let me introduce you all to the Z-man. Z sits next to me three days a week and calls me at least 20 times on Saturday and Sunday when he sits the news desk by himself. Here you can see Z eating out of a rather large Pyrex bowl that is filled with brussel sprouts. Z now has to stop eating fast food and drinking beer because his blood sugar 2 weeks ago was at 460. For those of you who don't know....That's a wee bit high.....I am truly marveled each day that he is alive.....he is not a healthy man. Man those brussel sprouts smelled to high heaven, like the inside of a fake leg, or a Bassett hound that drank a case of PBR and got real bad beer farts. I kept Gagging and had to leave the building. When I came back from lunch he still had half a bowl left and the whole newsroom smelled like the inside of Montley Crue's tour bus.

Oh yeah....the weather sucks here and it just keeps getting worse. It was 5 degrees yesterday. FIVE DEGREES!!!!! That is what you call ridiculously cold. When it gets that cold only one thing can cheer me up.....Peanut Butter Jelly Time!

Anyway here's what you've all been waiting for. Pictures of Ella in all her cuteness. She is getting so big, her pudgy little arms and legs are like Vienna sausages. I call her my little Jumbo Shrimp.

Moving Day

Welcome to the new home of Chuck Suede Media Geek. I'll probably be tweaking the site's design a little, so the look will change but the location should remain the same. One of biggest changes is that I don't have a guestbook. I'm not sure if I'll create one or not, it could take me some time if I do. So for now anyone who wants to leave a message will have to use the "Comments" link at the bottom of each post in order to post a comment.

I've been meaning to post about LLR's video that he made. It's freakin' Hilarious. He made an almost shot for shot remake of the "My Humps" using only Toy robots. Click here to check it out.

We've been running a commercial a lot lately on our channel that I'm in love with. It's by this security company called CPS that sponsors our Fugitive Of The Week. It starts off with this light airy song over the company's logo.

Your life could be on the LLLIIINNNNEEEE.
Call C-P-S.

Then you quickly see a persons shadow casting across the outside of a house. Dissolve then to the inside of the house to revel the all American waspy family, Mom, daughter(13) and son (6) making air popped popcorn and laughing. Then dissolve back out side to reveal a 1920's cat burglar dressed like a long shoreman holding a flash light and deactivating the home security system. All the while the singer's syrupy B.J. Thomas inspired tune plays on.

Someone could be in your house right now.
Protect your home and the ones you love.

You're life could be on the line,
But we could save you today.

Back inside the house and the family is now watching Batman Forever with there backs to the front door. As the door starts to open, the family somehow instinctively knows that the cat burglar is coming inside behind them as the door gets about an inch open, so they jump up in terror and start to huddle together in the middle of the room. Then slow dissolve to the father, arriving home, standing in the open door frame looking around the room in horror. He puts his hands over his face and begins to weep. The cat burglar has obviously slaughtered his entire family. The music builds to a crescendo and then fades out.

Your live could be on the line to night.
Call C-P-S.

I'm not making this up! It's Freakin' brilliant, plus the whole thing is in super slow motion which only adds to the absurdity. By far it is the best commercial about a family being slaughtered by a cat burglar while watching Batman Forever, EVER!!! It's got to be my favorite commercial of all time next to "Bye Bye....Grandpa loves you". I'll have to ask LLR about webhosting for video so I can get it on the site. I have a copy if anyone wants a dub, I had the guys in Master Control make it for me.

Okay enough of that. Time for Photos of my favorite baby girl.

"Heeeeyyyy, What the heck's going on over there?"

Yep, Still here

I hope everyone had a happy Turkey Day. I haven't posted anything in a while, Partly because I've been so busy with Sweeps and Partly because I have been busy setting up a new website. Xanga is okay but it can be very limiting, so I'm setting up a new Blogger Site. I'll let everyone know what the new address is when I fully make the switch.
Ella's first Thanksgiving was good, if cold.....It was 11 freakin' degrees today, and the crazy thing is, it's supposed to get up to 64 on Monday. I hate the Midwest. But I digress.
I'll try to post more before I get the new site up. In the mean time here are two of my favorite pictures of Elliott. God, She's just the cutest.

Big Update coming

I got a big update with lots of new pics coming up this weekend so keep checking back. I've been really busy with getting back to work and just haven't had time to post anything. When I get home at 8pm I'd rather hold Elliott than type on the computer.
Here are a couple of cute pics to tied you over until I get to that post.

Ella's Home from the Hospital and a Riot in Toledo all in one day

Well My little baby girl got to come home from the hospital on Saturday October 15th ( I know her name is Elliott, and Ellie makes the most sense, but we are calling her Ella for short.). So far we've watched some Cartoon Planet, soiled about fifty or so diapers and just sat around staring at each other for hours. We also went to the doctor today for her first out of the hospital check up. The doctors said "She's just perfect". Well I could have told you that mister big brain, I mean just freakin' look at her, she's freakin' adorable. Glad to see Med School paid off for you Brainiac. Just kidding he was a very nice man, might have had a problem stating the obvious, but a nice man and a good doctor.

Anyway, here are some pics from the hospital I didn't get to post and some from her at home over the last couple of days.

The Three wise Guys: Any boy who wants to date Elliott will have to go through a strict screening process performed by myself and these three gentleman...the one in the middle can bite through nails.

Elliott & Daddy

The Godfather: Show Respect

Grandma & Grandpa Bird sent this cool cookie bouquet.

"Elliott's the Cutest, and that's the Truth PPPPTTTTBBBBLLLLLL!"

Not only is she cute, but because she came home the same day a riot broke out in North Toledo, she saved me from going to work, where I probably would have had to gone down to the riot to shoot video of it because we only had two Photogs down there. One of the Photogs was almost attacked numerous times and had his life threatened by a bunch of gang bangers that tried to rob him. The other Photog was hit in the arm by a brick. So thanks for keeping me out of that baby.

Ladies and Gentlemen....Miss Elliott Anne

That's right, at 8:20pm EST Elliott Anne joined our family, weighing in at 8lbs. 15.8oz.

It was a very long and tiring day. They induced Morgan's labor at 7:30am and started monitoring her contractions. At one o'clock the doctor was going to Break Morgan's water, but it broke on it's own at about 12:30pm. She started pushing at 5 til 5pm and she did great, she's the strongest person I know. After she had been pushing for about 2 and a half hours, the doctor decided that the baby was just too big and he was going to have to perform a C-section. Morgan was pretty upset and frustrated, but she was a champ, she's my hero.

We went into the OR at about 8pm and at 8:20pm Elliott joined us.

After that Morgan had to spend about an hour in recovery.

More Pics later I have to get back to the hospital.
