Hollywood Lights

I am exhausted! Being famous is hard-work. Busy week ahead of me too. First I have to get my hand prints on Hollywood Blvd and the the next day I have to get out to the SAG Awards, I was nominated for a few. Most important was “Best Fight Spectator Impersonator of the Year: For men”. I’m basically a shoe in so I’m not worried about the competition. We just finished up shooting my new movie and I must say, Matthew Fox(or as I call him, Mattdawg) is such a little diva! My boy Tyler Perry couldn’t make it today which was unfortunate. I really like doing work with him. Well I got to get back to work, I got practice my lines for my audition in 2 weeks. I’m going for the lead role next to Angelina Jolie.

Dead Eye

So a thought that has come through my head on many occasions is “what era I belong to?” Every time the thought comes up, it’s always the same era that pops into my head. This time frame might come as a shock but I know I was meant to be a “Cowboy”. Not a live on the farm and do lame things cowboy either. A hustlin, rustlin cowboy. A cowboy that lives a life of action! Robbing banks and trains! The face on every wanted poster kind of cowboy. I don’t like rules, I don’t like having my own boss. What better fit for me then being a cowboy. I haven’t had a lot of experience with horses but if it came down to it I would ride a black stallion into the sunset without second guessing it! The fact that I work a cowboy hat and spurs like it’s going out of style is just a little bit of a bonus. I’d definitely have one of those cool cowboy nicknames too, Ryan “Dead Eye” Nelson. Everyone east of the Mississippi would know and respect the name. John Wayne would be begging to play me in a movie. Ah, I can just imagine it now…

But, instead here I am: Ryan Nelson, your average 22 year old growing up in the suburbs. My life is going in a complete different direction then if I were a Outlaw. I can’t complain though, I have a great girl, family, and son(dog).

It’s as easy as ABC

After today I will know if I have the job with the Marines that would save me right now.

Before I go to sleep tonight I will brush my teeth and drink some skim milk. 🙂

Cutting my hair is one of my least favorite things to do.

Drinking should definitely be done in moderation, or you will end up with a random pile of collected objects.

Eating chicken pot pie tonight was delicious! Thank you V!

Frank is the name of the dog of my new friend Amanda. Who is the most coolest/awesomest person ever! She just sent me and V a surprise for our anniversary, it was a framed picture of the 2 of us she had taken the last time she was here. 🙂

Going to bed is going to be spectacular, in about 30 minutes.

Howell is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be, on the other hand it’s not the best place either.

I am absolutely head over heels in love with an amazing girl named Veronica.

J is the letter that both of my brothers names start with.

Killing animals is not cool!

Louis is the cutest, sweetest, cuddliest, and most annoying dog in the world.

Money can buy you anything, including happiness.

Nelson would be the name on the back of a jersey, if I were somebody that played a sport.

On my way home tonight I almost ran over 2 big frogs. There was a good chance I hit one but I’m hoping I didn’t.

Prison is somewhere I hope to never end up.

Queen is a pretty sick group.

Ryan is my name!

Sitting on the couch is where I type this blog.

The zombie apocalypse is going to be exciting, hopefully I get to witness it.

Uranus is hands down the funniest named planet

V is the first letter of the names of my mom and girlfriend.

Winters suck and if global warming were to end them all I wouldn’t shed a tear.

Xylophone is the only word that comes to mind right now.

Yippity skip for this thing almost being done!

Zoos are one of the most fun places to visit!

I sit here, bored waiting to go to the gym. I get to work the exciting night shift with “Shirt” tonight. Woo! Not much is on my mind today. Except for the fact that I am not the biggest fan of cold weather. It drains all of the life out of me and makes me want to do nothing. When it’s sunny and nice out it’s so much easier to want to be outside doing things and enjoying it. When it’s cool and cloudy it makes it so much easier to want to be bundled up in a blanket, snuggled with your significant other or little dog :). Michigan winters are definitely not for me!

I started watching “Modern Family” with V. It is now one of my favorite shows. We watched the first 7 or 8 episodes yesterday after my manager let me borrow season 1 on DVD. I usually don’t watch comedies on TV because they are mostly the same but this one is actually really funny.

I will end this by saying, I love caffeine!

Gym stereotypes

This is something I am quite familiar with and thought it would be funny to write about. If you have worked out at a gym for an extended period of time you will start to see the common gym stereotypes. They’re usually found at any gym, anywhere in the country. They sound, but are not limited to, something like this.

1. “Washed-up bodybuilder” – The first one we will talk about is the guy that thinks he runs the gym. He will usually be found around the free weight section of the gym because that is where men workout. You usually know he is there as soon as you walk in by hearing the sounds of loud grunts and/or slamming weights. These guys usually think they don’t have to re-rack their weights or wipe down the equipment. This is a right they deserve from the years of blood, sweat, and tears lost to the “iron”. Their workout is started in a hoody to get a nice pump before revealing a very small tank top. You’re better off staying away from these characters because too much time around them and you might think it’s acceptable behavior.

2. “Rico-Suave” – The next one flows smoothly with the first because these 2 can sometimes be friends in the gym. This is the guy that is seen talking to girls more than actually working out in the gym. Their hair is usually perfect and is this way from the time they spend fixing it in the mirrors. The “Rico Suave” uses the gym, more as a social event to try picking up women then anything else. They are usually in pretty good shape, giving them the big-head to think they have a chance with any girl in the place. These guys are most likely going to do something is law enforcement or work as a fire fighter. There’s usually no point in approaching this type of person unless you are a very, attractive woman.

3. “Betty Bend-Over” – Usually a good friend with the #2, this is the lady that goes to the gym to impress men. She is usually doing some sort of work out using her legs or butt. As long as this workout machine is in a spot that can be seen by all the guys in the gym. She will most likely be the “hottest” girl at the gym and knows it. For some reason she believes that every muscle is worked out better if you stick your butt out while doing the exercise. As a guy talking to her is just falling into her trap and should be avoided at all costs.

4. “Robo-couple” – This is that couple that is always moving in the gym. Usually in the best possible shape a human being can be in. They get this way from the 5 marathons they run a week. Always trying to outdo each other they are usually found competing in different athletic events from 5k runs to Ironman competitions. They are never big, muscle people because the majority of their workouts involve some sort of high intensity cardio. Approaching them would only mean a brief conversation, ruining their heart-rate would ruin the workout.

5. “High School Athletes” – The name describes it perfectly. The group of teenage guys that are usually on the football team. One of the most obnoxious groups you can have at the gym. They are usually found doing curls or bench press. Because all you need in life is big arms and a big bench, right dude? Outfits usually include something that will let it be known that they are on the varsity football team. Their lifting technique is usually incorrect due to their un-qualified coach teaching them the “right way”. You would never want to approach these guys but you might have an awkward run-in at the local grocery store on a weekend night when they are “hey-mistering”.

6. “Guy that can’t lose weight” – This is the fat guy/girl that is on the treadmill day and night. No matter how much they are there they never seem to look any different. It’s like this person burns 1500 calories a day at the gym but goes straight to an all you can eat buffet for every meal of the day. Quite a sad story actually, these people are usually one of the nicest in the gym. If they could step away from the Little Debbie aisle and the grocery store they could probably look like they actually go to the gym. They will usually strike up a conversation as you tread next to them.

This is just a few of the most common stereotypes you can find. I honestly don’t think the gym would be the same without them.

UGH!

This is just a brief update about the blog from last night. I felt the need to publicly share this. As I was talking about last night, Veronica was joking around with me about watching “Castle” without me, or so I thought. That butt hole of a girlfriend actually watched the show without me! Our show! Can you believe that!? I know, it’s absurd! I just needed to vent this and let it be known that Veronica has an ice cold heart! 🙂

Blahhh

Hi guys! I’m back and better than ever! Well not literally but I am back. I guess you can just call it being lazy or lack of motivation. I just didn’t really feel like writing anything on here. Just coming back to this surprised me because my very short attention span is usually a road block for long term things, like this. This is just going to be a random babbling of whatever I feel like talking about. Right now the topic will be my love interest, Veronica. She is being quite the little brat right now, trying to make me think she is going to watch, “Castle”. That is one of the few shows that we watch together that I kindly asked her to record so we can watch it at another time. But no, Veronica has to be typical Veronica and make everything into a mean joke to me! I say this with all the love in the world because I know(hope) she is just joking with me. Since I’m writing this to my large fan-base of around zero I guess I don’t really have to make this blog very appeasing to anyone. I recently had an interview at the Younker’s in Lansing. I felt like it went pretty well. It lasted longer than 10 minutes which is more than most of the interviews I have had. I should hear back from them next week, so keep your fingers crossed! It’s a full time with benefits job, starting at $9 an hour. $9 an hour is pretty lame considering the store sells shirts for around $100. How you can’t afford to pay an “area manager” atleast $10 just blows my mind but it’s better than what I’m at now and I will most defiantly take it until something better comes along, and hopefully it will! I think it’s pretty funny that when I am given a paper in school that needs to be between 500-1000 words, it is practically like suicide writing it. When I am given a blank template and can write about whatever I want, however I want it’s very easy to get a decent word count. Now that I brought it up, I am actually kind of bored writing now. Leaving my current count around 370, which I can say I’m pretty proud of. Good night world.
