Throwing Little Thought Pebbles at Your Windshield Since 1996

Month: April, 2003

D’oh!

Note to self: If you’re going to buy an electric lawnmower, you need to charge the sucker up after it’s been sitting in the shed all winter. That is, if you intend to mow the lawn. If you don’t want to mow the lawn, just forget to do it.

Hello!

Hello everyone, how are you doing? Fine? That’s super! Had a nice relaxing day away from the computer. You know, because I’m “working at home” and jobhunting and keeping up with this site and email, I’m on the computer a LOT. Every day. So today was “get the hell away from the computer” day. It […]

The Big DumpTruck

I was reading more about that horrendous story about the cat breeder on Beacon Hill whose apartment was filled with 60 dead cats. Turns out this isn’t the first time she’s the cause of an apartment being condemned from feces, etc. Then I looked her up on google, and while her site has been pulled […]

Ghost in The Machine

Boy, there’s nothing freakier than an unexpected noise when you’re alone in the house. I’m talking about the ghost in the toy room that decided to make my son’s toy cell phone ring. As I said in an email to some friends, “Should I answer it?” Now Junior uses this phone to call “his boss” […]

Why? Just Why?

And the winner of the “I don’t understand you people” award is the person who ended up here by doing an AOL search on “scott peterson underwear”. As in “boxers or briefs”? I have no idea. This is the wrong place for this kind of search, regardless of this site’s placement on your results page. […]

Yo Ho Ho and a Cup of Jo

They Grow Up So Fast

Junior said his first swear today! My gosh, we thought he’d never get a potty mouth! I mean, you hope that they’ll be precocious and making sailors blush before they get out of diapers, but sometimes they just frustrate you and make you wait. So yes, he’s five and a half, and the magic word […]

She’s Right…He’s Getting Married!

Anthony Wiggle Field is marrying a Greek woman named Michaela. I declare today a day of mourning. Or at least of afternooning.

Snacking

Mmmmmm. Tostitos Party Bowl. Oh, and can I just say that I was looking out the window a few minutes ago and I realized I’m actually going to have to mow the lawn this week? Yeesh, I guess there is no rest for the wicked. Or me. (bwa ha ha ha). I’m thinking of popping […]

Devo

Junior was watching the Powerpuff Girls this morning and after the episode there was a music video – Devo doing “Go Monkey Go”. I know Mark Mothersbaugh is like the king of movie and cartoon scores (see: Rugrats and Rocket Power, to name two) but does Devo still exist as a group? Hey, here’s a […]
