Friday Random Ten – end of summer edition

31 Aug

Yeah, I missed last week. I was busy. And being off like this, I keep forgetting what day it is. It’s kind of liberating. Anyway, since it’s basically the end of summer, this list might be the soundtrack for the first hour of my Labor Day barbeque, were I to actually have one. I always […]

projects and errata

31 Aug

Today is Friday of my first week of paternity leave completely “off”. Besides all the normal baby stuff, the list of things knocked off the “to do” list is not insignificant. As I type this, I’ve just finished spending two or three hours contorting myself into a small space and rapping my knuckles repeatedly, in […]

nostalgia can be scary indeed

29 Aug

One of the benefits/drawbacks of broadband internet is the fact that you can get completely freakin’ lost clicking link after link on youtube. Follow a link to a kitten video on cute overload, and before you know it, you’ve killed forty minutes watching japanese toy commercials from twenty years ago. You know, I can’t even […]

okay, some baby pictures too

27 Aug

I figured, almost immediately, after my complete geek-out over my little box of water, the rest of you would like to see a couple of baby pictures. The kids on the couch, sitting as still as you’re usually going to get them, but you get a nice happy vibe from the photo. We liked it, […]

some non-baby photos -not that anyone cares…

27 Aug

In between all the other stuff to do when there’s a fussy baby about, I took a few minutes to snap a few photos of the fish tank, to document its new arrangement and try to get some shots of its new inhabitants. They, of course, didn’t always cooperate. Cherry barbs apparently never slow down […]

“Security Moms” take note

24 Aug

For all your baby safety needs, it’s bullet proof baby. If only they weren’t out of stock*, Catherine would so be getting my first D4-55 riot helmet. Also, shipping rates on the bulletproof stroller (handily demonstrated on the home page) is an excellent value. Consider this your public service announcement for the day. Enjoy. Otherwise, […]

Rolling Rock. From the glass lined tanks of Old Latrobe we tender this premium beer for your enjoyment, as a tribute to your good taste. It comes from the mountain springs to you. “33” happy birthday to me.

breaking radio silence

22 Aug

Reports of my demise are greatly exaggerated. I haven’t posted much this week, as, unsurpringly, we’ve been busy getting used to the new addition to the family, and I’ve been spending a great deal of my not playing with the baby time at one of the hotels down the road for some work-sponsored training (second […]

this could prove interesting…

20 Aug

Kristen Bell to join the cast of Heroes Well, it looks like I’ll get my Veronica Mars fix this fall after all. With super-powers no less. Anyway, it was a neat bit of news to read this evening, which maybe improved my mood, temporarily, at least a little bit. I’ll take what I can get.

I guess it wasn’t the time

20 Aug

…though it still feels like sharp kick to the guts. The initial selection (the list from which they pick the people to interview) for those other jobs I put in for came out today, and I didn’t even rank.  Apparently, my cunningly included keywords were less cunningly included than everybody else’s; at least so much […]
