It Can Stay Cool Until 9:30

I’m off to play a little t-ball with Junior with his old teammates. We planned on an 8:30am start to beat the heat. So the heat can stay beaten until we’re done! Also, can someone please invent a towel that cleans itself? I feel like I’m just always washing the danged things.

Cheese Money

“Weekends Were Made for Michelob” God, when’s the last time you had that jingle in your head? Well it’s there now! And if you aren’t nice to me, I’ll give you a few others. And don’t think I won’t do it! No strong plans for the weekend. That’s okay, we’re saving our cheese money for […]

Still Planning

You’ll have to forgive my obsession with Disney right now, but I’m so ready to be there that I’m not letting little things like the trip being three months away deter me from planning and just constantly thinking about it. Today’s thoughts are about Universal Studios. I think Junior would get a real kick out […]

Obama For President

Link to Barak Obama’s speech from last night. Keep your eye on this guy, he’ll be running for President sooner than you know. http://online.wsj.com/article_email/0,,SB109096386879275460-H9jgINklaV3oZ2obIKIb62Im4,00.html

4124 + 4341

I’m sure someone will bring me down a peg or two, but allow me this small parental gloat, would you? My kid is good at math. I laugh when I call him Doogie, but deep in my heart, I want him to go to college at 16 even if it means two fewer years in […]

I Didn’t Need Windows Anyway

Windows are overrated, really. They couldn’t finish fixing my car today so when they finally gave it back at about 5pm they said they needed it again next Tuesday. At least the window is shut and doesn’t need electrical tape and a Shaws bag to keep the weather on the outside. They tell me there’s […]

To and From

I got to and from work today with little or no problem. I mean, traffic was a bit heavy, but lately it’s been like that daily anyway. So I’m at work, happy as a clam (oh, can you just feeeeel the joy?) thinking to myself “thank the Good Lord I don’t go in or out […]

Don’t Trust a Crowd

Well, the only mention of the standoff in Lunenburg in the Telegram was a little mention. No shooting. I don’t know what the crowd was talking about, but according to the news he allowed them in and he was just sitting on his couch. He had been threatening to kill himself with a gun. So […]

hostages!

We were minding our own business, going to stop by the Walmart plaza to run into the grocery store when we see something very freaky…27 police cruisers (we counted) lining the road up the hill on toute 13 toward Leominster. Talking to one of the hundred or so people standing at the edge of the […]

And THIS is Why You Get No Respect

The Boston Patrolmen’s Union got the 14.5% (over 4 years) raise they wanted. That’s nice, I’d like a 1% raise, but hey, who’s complaining? No, the problem is that the union [dick-]head has announced that they will picket the DNC anyway. Excuse me? You got what you wanted so you’re going to complain about…getting it? […]
