I think....

When I put the beanie on I look like I'm 8.

Every week at youth group we go around the group and say our name and then we answer the icebreaker topic. Such as, Hi I'm Ricky, and my favorite Togo's sandwich is the Turkey Bacon Club. So then everyone says their name and what their favorite togos sandwich is. Well tonight, since I took the lead for some of the youth group, I made everyone say their name, and "what I like best about Ricky". It was hilarious. A couple of the other leaders said "I can't believe we're actually doing this." But, the kids kept it going. I got a few "because he's funny", and a few "he has cool hair". There were some other responses, but I just thought it was really funny that they actually followed through and did that icebreaker. Good times.

My dad....

Has ten XBOX 360's to give away for free!!!(the mega package with all the games and stuff).
He got them from one of his suppliers, and told me to post it on my website. His name is Rick, and his cell phone is 925-337-0004. Give him a call and tell him you want one. The only thing you have to do is tell him that you saw this posting. Good luck!!

This Markus Schulz trance set is really good. 143 minutes of mind altering music that gets my creative juices flowing. I don't know what it is, but I am a sucker for some good trance music.

My birthday....

Is just 7 days away. I'll be 28. I don't feel 27. So I'm definitely not going to feel 28. And apparently I don't look 28 either, as I was carded 3 times in Tahoe this weekend when I was in the casino. In fact, one of the blackjack dealers (female) said "I wish I looked that good when I was 28." To which I said, "Yeah, I bet you do." Just kidding, I didn't say that. I didn't even think that. But seriously, I really don't feel 28. I still feel the same exact way I did when I was 16. My knees don't ache, my back doesn't hurt, I haven't started losing hair on my head or growing it in my ears or on my back. Also, this is the last birthday I'll have as not a dad. For those of you interested, we are going Monday to find out the sex of the baby. I'm thinking I'm going to red0 the color scheme on my website depending on what we're having. And I'm secure enough in my manhood to change the scheme to pink if we're having a girl. People who love pink are my favorite. Except you, Jackson. Your fascination with pink is just weird man.

Feels like I've traveled 823 Miles....

Thursday: Played flag football + drove to Manteca for Thanksgiving Dinner +
Friday: Drove from Manteca to Lincoln + drove to Shingle Springs + Drove to Tahoe +
Saturday: Drove to Shingle Springs + Drove to Lincoln + Drove to Manteca + Drove to Fremont + Sunday: Did yard and house work =
dead right now. dead tired.

And, to the persson that left a few comments on my website stating that "I only work 20 hours" and that I should "get a job". Kiss my ass. You don't know what you're talking about. I have 3 different jobs, 2 at 20 hours a week, and 1 at about 10 hours a week. So like I said, kiss my ass. Apparently, those comments really bothered me.

Also, I'm listening to the new KoRn album, not so good. It sounds a lot different than anything they've ever done. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. So far, "Twisted Transistor" is the best song on the album.

If I've said it once...

I've said it a thousand times. I HATE water softeners. I'm at my moms, and she has one. It's horrible. When you're taking a shower it feels like you have conditioner all over your body. And the worst part about that is, you CANNOT scrub hard enough to get rid of that feeling. It just feels slimy, and I loathe taking showers here. That is all. Get back to work.

What the hell?

Everytime Nicki leaves for a night, the dogs get depressed. They just fall asleep by the front door and mope around the house like old men. Am I not good enough for them? Did they forget that it was "I" who got them, it was "my" idea? Ungrateful. They have better think of something other than Nicki to be thankful for tomorrow.

One of our cats died.

His name was Dexter. And surprisingly, I really liked him. He had a really funny little personality. He even played with the dogs.

I found him tonight in the street by our house. It didn't look like he got hit by a car or anything, so I don't know what happened. I'm really going to miss that little guy. He is survived by his brother Jettster.

No, this isn't a joke.

Nicki and I went to a marriage conference.....

I'm thinking that I may take two separate blog posts to get all of the information from this weekend out. First reason is that I'm tired, and have to get up early for my new job. (Please God don't make me work there much longer.) Great people, great company, just not a fit for me. Second reason I'm going to do this in two posts is because there are a ton of things I want to say, but don't feel like writing a lot right now.

So then, I will just write out the things that really stuck out to me. I'll save the outline version for the second post, and just post the phrases and things that stuck out to me, for this post. But before I do this, I really want to take a minute and express my sincere gratitude towards my church. Specifically, my Pastor, Paul McGovern, and Jackson and Janelle Perdue. Without them, we wouldn't have gone this weekend, and without them, we wouldn't have been able to go this weekend. When I got home from work Friday, Nicki and I had a care package, complete with maps to our hotel, books for us to read together later, a letter of encouragement, a few other things and a lot of cash. A lot of cash. The envelope said "This is for gas, and a nice night out." That blew me away. A lot of churches and church friends talk about serving, and what it is to help others out, but this went above and beyond any of that. Nicki and I are both very blessed to have Jackson, Janelle and Paul in our lives. Thank you thank you thank you.

Okay. Seriously, now I'm going to hit you with my highlites. And please, these are how I interpreted what I heard. The speakers their may have not even intended these things to mean this way, but this is what I heard and took away. And, the way I heard them and interpreted them may not be how you would. I'm just saying, this is how I heard them.
Oh, and by the way, I think it's really awkward, especially at a marriage conference, when the speaker says something like "Wives you should do this", or, "Husbands you should do this" and then the husband or wife looks at their spouse and says "Yeah, see". Man that was awkward ALL weekend.

Change your motivation for being married. Why are you married? Feelings, sexual attraction, cultural or family pressure, escape? If you answer yes to any one of those, you need to make an adjustment. And no, that adjustment is not divorce or separation. Just because you feel like getting divorced, or feel like separating, or feel like anything else, doesn't mean anything. Feelings have an IQ of zero.

Get rid of the 50/50 mentality. How do you know when your spouse has met you half way? You can't. AND, no matter if you are doing 10% or 50% in your mind, you're doing 100% of that 10% or 50%. Lose that mentality.

When you focus on yourself in your marriage, that's what you'll end up with.

The worlds idea for marriage is not what God intended. God wants your marriage to be inter-dependent. Not independent.

Plenty of men would love to date your wife, so why don't you?

Your spouse is not your enemy. \

Be a peace-maker. Not a peace-faker. Don't brush things under the rug and pretend everything is alright. If something is bothering you, talk about it in love and respect.

When the bible says the husband is the head of the household, that means that the husband is accountable. Not, that the husband is the boss, or the husband rules with an iron fist.

Make a list of 4 or 5 things you love about your wife.

List all the things about your wife that you consider weaknesses and problems. Then, next to those weaknesses and problems, list some weaknesses and problems you'd want her to have instead. What's that you say? You'd rather just have her not have any weaknesses or problems? Well, if that's your train of thought, then what you need is a PERFECT person. Here's a hint: They don't exist.

Love is based on an act of the will, not passing feelings. If you don't FEEL like loving, or FEEL like doing something, DO IT ANYWAY.

We as husbands need to learn to carry the burdens our wives carry. Help them of course, with them, but learn to be sympathetic to what burdens them.

Being a Christian husband does not = being passive. Don't blow off your responsibilities. Be firm, and take care of business.

If you're failing in a limited sphere of responsibility and blessings, God is not going to increase those responsibilities and blessings.

When it comes to children, YOU are the most important minister your children will ever have. Not their pastor, not their teacher, etc. You.

Try to feel the hurtings of your spouse, instead of hurting the feelings of your spouse.

Protest what's wrong in your marriage, protect what's right.

You wouldn't want anyone else to tear your wife down or hurt her(mentally, physically, emotionally, etc.) So why are you?

It was by perseverance that snails made it to the ark. Marriage takes perseverance.

Relate to your spouse in whatever way will please Christ.

You may have had nothing to do (or no say) with your heritage, but you have everything to do with your legacy.

A Christian home is not a home that Christians live in. A Christian home is a home where Christ lives.

If you say you are married to the wrong person, you're basically saying "God messed up".

If you're making your marriage and family life better without including Christ in that process, you're only making the trip to hell more comfortable.

So those are the little nuggets I wrote down. Not all of them you may agree with. And that's okay. Like I said, those are the things that stuck out to me. I needed to hear those things. And just because I went to this conference does not mean that my marriage is automatically fixed and everything is fine. Marriage is something you have to work on moment by moment, not day by day. And I guess the biggest thing I learned is this, that I am responsible for what my children will know of marriage and love and dedication and perseverance and all of those things. If I don't show affection to my wife, then it's more likely that my son or daughter won't show affection to their spouse. If I throw the towel in on my marriage, not only will my child have to choose which parent to be with on the Holidays and all of those things, but they will most likely follow in my footsteps when the going gets tough. God made Adam and Eve. They were sinless at first. By the time they had Cain and Abel, both Adam and Eve had sin in their lives. And with Cain and Abel, just one generation later, one generation later with sin, Cain killed Abel. Sin is ugly, and it's serious. And the only way to combat sin is to have a personal relationship with Jesus.

I feel like writing more, but I'm not. I'm tired. And like I said, I have to go to my new job that I hate in the morning. Yay me.

I can't even believe I'm admitting this to the world:

But at one time in my life I was a huge Wrestling fan. Right now I'm watching "The self destruction of the Ultimate Warrior". And I'm just taken back to my childhood when my brothers and I used to pretend we were Hulk Hogan and Randy Macho Man Savage. I actually have that on video, so I think I'm going to put it up here on my website in a minute. Stay tuned...... (okay im not actually in the video because i was recording it, but my brothers steve and danny are) and at the beginning of the video, thats my sister Amy and I.

(Dammit mom and dad. When your 12 year old son constantly walks around with a video camera conducting interviews and making little movies, you should have put him INTO A F*****G ACTING SCHOOL OR SOMETHING ALONG THOSE LINES.)

Okay, I'm done ranting. Click the little video link to watch the video, here. It's so f'n cute.

We've gotten 20 voicemails on our home answering machine. And not one of them was for me. I think I'm losing my luster.

My dad's wifes father died suddenly of a heart attack last night. My dads name is Rick and my step-mom's name is Marianne. Her fathers name was Andy, and his wife Tina will be going through quite a difficult time, especially being so close to the holidays. So if you're the praying type, you can pray for them.

If you have a rather large digital music collection...

Like me, then I encourage you to at least once a week or even once a day, just go find a random song you've downloaded but not listened to (you know like when you download an entire album but you only listen to the good songs) and play it. I just found a little gem called "Radio", by The Avalanches. The beat makes me think I'm in a movie that takes place during the summer, somewhere really hot like The Bronx, and you're watching the opening credits. Here's the song. I hope you like it. By the way, I'm thinking the movie is about the loss of innocence or something.

It's 2:57 a.m.

And I'm still up. This is vintage Ricky Borba. I used to stay up like this all of the time. I used to work the 10pm to 6am shift on the radio. I like staying up late.

By the way, I got a new part time job today. With a company called Data Scale. It's a part time job, and they seem very very open and okay with me trying to get my production company off the ground while I work there as well. So it seems like a good fit, and with the holidays and a baby on the way, it's perfect timing. Thanks God. It's kind of a vague job description, so I'm curious to see how it really turns out and what my actual job is going to be. I have to be there by 8am, which totally sucks because I hate getting up early, but it is less than two miles from my house. So with this new job, the church paying me to make videos, and Juva9 paying me part time, maybe things are going to get better in the ol' financial dept.

By the way, I think I'm way more productive during this late night time period than at any other time during the day. And a side note, I'm listening to a song called "Don't save us from the flames" by a group called M83. You should listen to it. I know you know how to download music.

I think I'm going to bed. Here's a video for you. Click here.

Tomorrow is Friday. This has felt like a long week. I've been taking multi-vitamins again, so I feel more energetic during the day. Tomorrow I'm going with my sister to film two houses for a real estate agent I know from church, and I'm hoping to turn those two videos into the catalyst that gets my production company, (www.juva9.com) off the ground and going well. Along with emaling over 300 other real estate agents this week, I've also emailed a bunch of clubs, lounges, restaurants and hangouts to see if they're interested in making a video for their websites. My ultimate goal though is to make my movie. I wrote a screenplay for a modern day telling of Cain and Abel. If you're interested in reading it, let me know. I'd post it up here for everyone, but I'm afraid someone would see it and claim it as their own. Yes, I think my little website is popular enough for me to warrant that kind of concern. Plus, the script is RADICAL! Dude!

Perfect 3rd Date!

For your third date, after you've finished the nice dinner, and you're both in the car going to the next leg of the date, ask her if she trusts you. When she says "yes" tell her to put the blindfold that you have in your glove compartment on. Keep driving for a while, with the radio turned up really loud and tell her to "be still".

Park the car at your destination. Where's the destination you ask? The local cemetery.

Walk her to the the two headstones that are side by side, with your name on one of them, and her name with your last name on the other. Make sure you have todays date as the death dates. Take the blindfold off. When she stops crying long enough to say "why is todays date on that headstone"? Say, "because i'm going to f'ng kill you".

Gargle. Rinse. Repeat.

I had my......

Three re-occurring dreams last night. I usually have them about once a month, but never ever in the same night. Last night I had all of them. Here they are:

Re-occurring dream #1: Is that I'm back in high school and I'm trying to fit because I don't think people like me. I don't verbalize my insecurity in my dream, but it's something I'm thinking about in my dream. And when I have the high school dream, 9 times out 10 it's about the fact that I can't or didn't graduate. Weird.

Re-occurring dream #2: Is that I get my old job at the Olive Garden back. In my dream I hate it. I feel horrible, like I'm doing something I hate. In my dream I usually screw up taking someone's order or forget I have a new table. This dream usually ends with me quitting the job. Weird.

Re-occurring dream #3: Well, that's for me. Not sharing that one. ;)
