Elvis is my Chao

You all have a Chao, right? You do play Sonic Adventure 2 Battle for the GameCube. There are all these adventure levels, and then there is the Chao Garden portion of the game where you raise these little creatures. Sure, you’re supposed to be raising them to race against other Chao, or to do Karate, […]

A Little To the Right..Thanks.

Hey, it’s not like I wasn’t trying. Full day of work, pick up the kid, make dinner, play a little, go out to mow the lawn before it gets dark (and don’t be mistaken, it gets dark way earlier than I want it to, damn it). That’s cool, I’m mowing. I’m even mowing in straight […]

Pier 1 imports Products

Here are links to the new bookshelf and the end table (one door cabinet). The cabinet matchs a desk they have, the only problem being that I think it’s half an inch too big for the space where I intend to put a desk. This is unfortunate because the style of the desk would go […]

I Give This Day Two Thumbs Up

77 to 80 degrees, nice breeze, blue sky, a few puffy clouds, found two shirts, a bookcase, a bedside table and groceries. Towels are in the machine, we just came back from a walk/bikeride (he rode, I walked, duh) and I should do the lawn but I’m going to put that off. Sure I have […]

Can’t It Be For a Different Reason?

As much as I enjoy seeing Yahoo! Leominster make the news, I’d rather it not be attached to a story titled “Pedophile Ex-Priest Killed in Prison.” No, really. I don’t care if it is the number one story on both the Reuters and AP feeds on Yahoo right now. I’d prefer it to be because […]

Ripped from the Headlines: Fox Bid to Block Franken Book Rejected

Dear Fox News: Are you on crack? Not only do you file a stupid suit that states people will trick consumers into believing you’re somehow behind this book (gee, thanks for giving us so much credit), but you use the suit to personally attack Franken? ARE YOU INSANE? Any small amount of credibility you were […]

Stupid! Stupid stupid!

My ISP is finally filtering out all the viruses from the emails coming in to their server (I could tell because all those emails now have “{virus?} appended to the front of the subject, which wasn’t there yesterday) So the mail gets in your box. What does it say? ————— Warning: This message has had […]

Mountains of Hair

Update: She either wasn’t there when I picked him up, or he really didn’t recognize her today. The teacher was as tickled as I was, and she really wanted to know who it was. She apparently thinks he’s the nicest kid to ever walk the planet, which is just the perfect thing to say to […]

Lookout, Julia

I know it’s been a while since I’ve talked about my invisible daughter-in-law Julia, but she does come up every once in a while. About two weeks ago Junior mentioned something about Julia and Jim (Jim is his invisible buddy, I’m not sure if he lives with us or not), but since then nothing. Yesterday […]
