Just thought I would share one of my all-time-favorite internet graphics with y'all.  Not sure why I like it more than anything else, but this guy probably got paid good money to make this face.  Not only that, but they probably took 25 different pictures/angles of this shot, and decided THIS IS THE ONE!!!

This weekend started out pretty terribly...on Friday we played poker with some friends (No Limit Holdem, Tournament Style) and I was the first one out, so that was kind of sad.  At least my good buddy Miller Lite can't say no, so we had a great evening listening to "Sexyback" by JT.  Good times.
Saturday the Fightin' Irish of Notre Dame got their tails handed to them by Michigan, almost totally taking away all hopes of a national title.  At least the loss came early in the year, maybe they figure something out. 
Luckily on Sunday the Chicago Bears put a hurting on the Detroit Lions!!!  This pretty much saved my weekend, I was expecting the Lions to come to play just to make my weekend horrible, but to no avail!  Sexxxy Rexxxy looked great, Bernard Berrian was stunning, even the tight ends got into the mix!  Now all they need is a running game and they'll be Miami-bound in February!
Oh, and now for the reason the subject of this blog is "beerfest"...# of beers I had each night:
Friday: ~ 12 Miller Lite's
Saturday: ~ 20 Bud Light's (started at 3:30pm)
Sunday: ~ 7 Bud Light's
GRAND TOTAL: 39 beers this weekend.  Ouch.  Oh my brother also got cut off at a casino in Las Vegas.  What a proud weekend for the Pernecky family!
Check ya later!

Part of living in Florida

It's been a long time since I've checked in, so I thought I'd put some pictures up on here. Ever since living in Florida, I've seen some cool bugs/animals, etc. Besides the every day gecko lizard or the multiple cool birds (sand hill cranes, pelicans, the occasional owl), there are a few things I pay some special attention to.

I found a couple of cool things outside today that caught my eye. Most of the pictures below were taken with my cell phone.

The first 2 pictures are a snake I found while mowing the lawn. It heard the lawn mower coming along so it slithered behind this water thing we have on the side of our house. Based on research I've conducted on the Internet, I believe it's a young Florida Cottonmouth Snake (poisonous):

Here's a Wikipedia article and a Florida Snake Website link if you want to read up on it.

The other thing I found was a cool little hairy spider. It was almost all black with some tiny white spots on it's abdomen. The wife and I thought it had 2 huge green eyes, but upon further review, it turns out they were not it's eyes, but it's chelicerae. Here's my picture of the underside of the spider:

Terrible picture I know. I would have gone out to take a picture of the top side of the little guy/gal but I was in my skivvies and the neighbors may have been offended. Here's a better picture similar to what this one looked like:

Well I hope that was interesting to someone out there. Oh yeah, GO BEARS!
