google isn’t always your friend

30 Sep

I really shouldn’t be allowed to read medical case studies. I had a CT scan done of my wrist on Friday morning, in order to get a better idea of what’s going on. I picked up the CD with the images on it this morning (they were having some equipment problems Friday, and couldn’t burn […]

25 Sep

okay, Nana, you were asking for pictures of the baby; here’s the little eight and a half pounder (according to the pediatrician today) in her little pink penguin outfit: Six weeks old and already evangelizing for the open source community. And look, I’m typing with eight fingers – diagnosis change on the arm; might have […]

friday random ten: “doom an evil deed, liven a mood” edition

21 Sep

you know the drill… Actually a pretty standard selection this week, including the one song I can confidently play on the mandolin (guess which one…if you dare), plus a couple of oddballs…. I mean, who has a copy of Michelle Pfeiffer singing lustily about Maxwell “Say No More, Mon Amour” Caulfield while she humps a […]


Pirates knife fink set a rip

19 Sep

“Avast Ye, scurvy bilgerats, to the plank with Ye!” Yes, Friends, today is Semptember 19, known across the Wide World and the Seven Seas as Talk Like A Pirate Day, so give someone a hearty “Arrrrr!” today. I wisely haven’t told me kids about this yet…I don’t think their teachers would appreciate it (they both […]


because I felt like it, a tuesday post

18 Sep

My last post ended singing the praises of the live-action Japanese Spider-Man tv show. I believe I mentioned the machine gun guitar cowboy? And didn’t post a link to this wonder of 70s television? Well, click here. With that bit of business out of the way… Not sure how I feel about the week…when I […]


the end of an era, and something completely unrelated.

16 Sep

I am very tired. We were way too busy this weekend (well, okay, too busy Saturday). The baby keeping me up past two am didn’t help either. Luckily, I have a nice wife who lets me sleep in occasionally while she gets showered with baby gifts. I am going to bed early tonight. I think […]
