Exxotica 2010

Once again the Adult convention makes it to the Raritan Expo Center in Edison, NJ for the 3rd straight year despite some controversy. This time around in conjunction with the Xotic Autoshow, the collaboration has proved to be a huge success, bringing cars and girls together, for a spectacular show filled with on stage performances, workshops, vendors and exhibitions. Just the setup and morning prep was more than i could handle, sorry no vids of that. The after parties every night made for a nonstop sexy weekend, no video there either. I'm sure this union will happen again for another stellar repeat performance that gets bigger every year.

special thanks to Rico, V and all my industry friends, and shout outs to my home girls Jada and Sunny.

SHOPKICK = free money

Everyone like reward programs. getting stuff for things you do anyways. credit cards do reward programs, where you spent X amount then get X amount back in some form. there are cash back programs too. either way, you get something for spending with a certain retailer. same with loyalty cards, shop there often, get stuff.

There is a new app called SHOPKICK where you don't have to spend to get rewarded with stuff. you don't even have to deal with advertising. The program is about checking into stores with your smartphone, racking up points, then turning them in for rewards with participating retailers. i use it and love it.

You get point by checking in (just open the app and click away at green bubbles), walking in (physically be in a participating store), or scanning items (i do this, its like a daily treasure hunt). then as you accumulate, there is a page (see pic) that lets you know what you can get. and its stuff i can use, like target gift certificates.  for physical retailers, it breaks down to every 250 points is $1, and you can redeem in 5, 10, 15 or 25 dollar increments.

and every so often, if you don't even actively play, they have instant coupons per retailer you can use. one day there was a sports authority $10 instant cash for checking in. i used it 4 times, saving $40. and the same day i went to target to buy a video game and had enough points to save $25 on a video game.  its really free money, except for the time invested to click away, but im always looking at my phone anyways.

so if you going to play on your android phone or iPhone, get the app, and for extra points use promo code:

Diet, by definition provided by Merriam Webster is
   a : food and drink regularly provided or consumed
b : habitual nourishmentc : the kind and amount of food prescribed for a person or animal for a special reason
: something provided or experienced repeatedly

So after all the splaining, i decided to compile them all into a blog entry that can be referred to, so that it would save everyone some time and confusion. Everyone is different and so is my diet. It was specially formulated for my active lifestyle and metabolism. People are wondering how this is, based on my pictures of food. Some might say that its unhealthy. Unhealthy is a relative term, after all, one mans trash......  

Some time ago, i decided to take pics of my food. its a trend. and i think taking pics of food is easier than taking pics of friends, cuz food wont cower at the site of the focus light, or say 'tag me' or ask me to take it down. That is why there is 6 albums of 200 pics of food. looking at my pics, you can tell that it went from friendcentric photos to culinary wonders. the wonder is, how am i alive? seeing all the food pics is deceiving cuz you don't see pics of any exercise and i eat at all times of the night and what seems to be anything i want. but in actuality, i have certain foods i must have and those i must not. again, formulated for my metabolism and lifestyle.

According to the definition above, my food album is clearly a diet.  My diet is regularly consumed, habitually, prescribed, and repeated.  I would never recommend it to anyone because things differ for everyone. Diet is a regimen, not a weight loss regimen. Its like asking 'where did you come from?' i can answer philippines, edison, dinner, home, or just point in a random direction.

Why not fat you ask? I do exercise. Im not eating all the time. I've finished P90x. i cant count how many people i know that have tried to do P90x and quit after a week. I completed it without missing a day. I did the physical part of the program, and did not follow the diet at all. had i done the nutritional part, my results would have been tenfold. but i wasn't going to punish myself, so i just ate what i want. I also take fat burner pills. nothing as serious as hydroxycut, just a little something something.  My metabolism has slowed down in recent years, so over the summer i did one cycle of P90x, then i spent long hours at the park jogging, biking on trails and playing basketball.  I feel my metabolism is key to everything, fortunately it is how it is. i don't smoke, gives you finger cancer. i don't drink, tastes bad and don't want a beer belly. so i eat.

How can you eat so much? When you look at my pics, its overwhelming, but anyone that has dined with me will notice, i don't eat all my food.  I've adopted a modified small portion diet. don't eat all the food and it wont count. eat the rest later. 6 meals a day. diet between meals. instead of a full plate of bacon at the buffet, get 10 plates of 4 strips at a time, and sit far, walking is exercise. its all in the mind. just like and religion.

why do you eat so many times? small portions. 6 meals a day. 3 regular scheduled meals, and a meal instead of 2 hours of sleep. replacing sleep with food not only makes the burning of calories round the clock, but gives you more time in the day to be more productive. once again, this is not for every lifestyle. and if you are still reading this, you are as crazy as i am.

there are limits, and consequences. currently my diet is: 6 meals a day, of which sonic not more than 3 times a day, 10 wings every other day, cut the soda, lots of water, unless its sonic cremeslush, don't eat at least 4 hours before long sleep, take powernaps often, and leftovers do not count for meal allotment or as pre-sleep food. and i have bags under my eyes which i hide with my non-prescription glasses.

wont you die? eventually, but went to the doctor, and both cholesterols were in good range, blood pressure good, and clean bill of health. this is my diet, i would never right a book for people to follow, its highly unorthodox and makes no sense. and i wont have to worry about haters or be liable for any damages. again, dont try this at home.

the end result is what it is. it works for me. if the only concern is the end result, weigh out the options, get priorities straight, and just do it. its like studying. if all you care about is the time invested to get knowledge, then instead of wasting 6 hours of studying before the test, study after the test so you know EXACTLY what to study. worked for me, but i got good grades anyways.

Best things in life are free. (HBD to me!)

Texts are free. And this one text was a result of crafty ingenuity with so much buildup. The text was a HBD text from my best friend. The build up was after month of dodging my texts where i ask him every day if we getting together after work to no reply (see attached images) and making me think he got a new number, he send me HBD through a facebook third party app, and i text him if he would be around to celebrate my birthday, and he texted back with HBD! Its the best text ever! side note: i did make a small monetary gain of 200 from several people when I won the over/under of days in a row id get no reply, but i never told these guys that i knew that my man would never let my bday go by, sorry i rigged it, but you all took the sucker bet. You see, to most of you, a facebook wall HBD from your bestie is as impersonal as it gets and this and that, and using a third party app is even worse especially for someone close, but for me and him its different.  A epic friendship that has marinated for 18 years through thick and thin, ill take what i can get.  And he planned this so cunningly for months, you cant make this stuff up.  I wouldn't be surprised if he really wasn't working and had some surprise party all planned out for me.  He has always been so thoughtful. Even voted as the nicest guy on a FB app. You dont come across that many top notch guys nowadays, I am the lucky one.

He has been the only constant in my life. Happy Birthday to me!
