Monikers

It's an off week for me, and I really got little to say. Training - yea, a little. Working - yea, it's hot. Reading - yea, lots of good blog posts out there....ya'll are a thoughtful bunch. Granted, I'm easy - my thoughts revolve around food, boobs and my favorite TV shows (not in that particular order...). Oh yea, and some little Ironman event that's right around the corner.

We bought a bed last night. Ours has officially bit the dust - CRIMENY! My back is even starting to hurt, and it's effecting my swimming and biking now. New bed, pillow top, mid-line king size (I'm the Bigun, I need my space...) - we get it on Friday - really can't wait for a good night's sleep.

I think I have MY official moniker for Sweet Baboo - Boo-Man! Still has a little of the "Sweet Baboo" that his loving bride GG has tatoo'd him with , yet is masculine enough to be "nemesis-worthy". Say it out loud - "BOO-MAN"! I like it. Even when I'm cheering for him, like when he does IMKY in 33 days or so, I can yell, GO BOO-MAN! at IMLive and not feel all wierd like I do when I think of him as Sweet Baboo. Yuck.

Dude
You are too funny! I bought the king size mid-level bed a couple years back (I got a buddy who's lady works at Simmons and got me a 1,100 bed for cost of 200 bucks). Boo-Man it is. I like it. I even yelled it so loud the neighbors are giving me dirty looks. Keep on training. 101 around the corner as well.

I'm not sure about BOO-man. Boo and Man just don't go together. Why not B - Dawg?

I will patiently await the verdict of the triblogosphere council but we may have to work this into a 101 victory wager. If I win you can call me sweet.

Alternatively I thought about getting a couple of custom shirts, one says “I’m Fat!” and the other says “I’m Phat!” and we’ll wear those to dinner, of course the winner getting the Phat shirt. We can then have pics made and post them on our blogs…Huh, Huh?

GeekGirl said...

I dunno. I have to say it takes a real man to not feel threatened by calling another man Sweet Baboo, but then, that's just me...

Pillow-tops rule. I'm just sayin'.

Duane said...

S. Baboo's bet seems like the way to go!

I was thinking of getting a shirt that has this on the back " I know, I know, on my left"!

Apparently, one thought of Nigella Lawson could fill Bigun's entire brain!

Wrenching Winz said...

It works.

What beer didn't make the list?! What kind of clydesdale are you?

Now you and Di just need to ahem, break in the new bed.

Yay, new bed. One semester in college I rented an apartment that had a california king in it. The previous tenants just didn't want to move it out (could you blame them?) Coming from the dorms where I had a TWIN, it was paradise!

supalinds said...

Food, boobs and TV. HA HA HA. What more could a soon to be Ironman ask for!

JohnnyTri said...

ohhahhh... a wager at the 101..hummm.. now its getting interesting.

BOO-MAN!!! ur behind Bigun, pick it up!!!

ok, just seeing how that sounded..

rockon`

S. Baboo said...

St. A's does look like a fun race. I'd like to see if I could crack the top 10 in a race like that...maybe if the course is flat from beginning to end and I trained specifically for the Oly distance.

Nytro said...

dude... your name is Bigun, and you ONLY have a king-size? Benny and I have a California king. it's the only way to go. after sex, we can each return to our corner - like boxers - and not have to touch each other.

this is why we're still married.

just a thought.

Andra Sue said...

Good observation, Brent. Very smooth.

Not sure what I ever did before my king-sized bed...and I'm only 5'4". Probably has something to do with 2 beagles that sneak up every night and take up an inordinate amount of space. Anyway, enjoy your new bed! Oh, and make sure Mrs. B gets you guys at least 800 thread-count sheets! I swear they make you sleep better.

too funny!!

Boo-Man? are you serious? That sounds like a baby's nickname. Y'know, "how's my widdle boo-man? boo-man do a poopy?"

B-Dawg is WAY manlier.

tri-dogmom said...

King is the ONLY way to go! Shane & I still fight over space... and he's 5'10, I'm only 5'3".... Maybe something is wrong with this picture..?

Fe-lady said...

"Sweet-man" works too...
Congrats on the new bed...sleep like a baby!
(After returning to your corner, that is!)
Nytro is so funny....

J-Wim said...

Best thing we ever supersized was the bed!

Oh how I used to love the Smiths. My husband hates them and gets so irritated when I play them (or Morrisey). I have an entire Morrisey/Smiths mp3 playlist with like 40 songs on it!!! Great rainy day music!
