DumpCast Alert

I’m not sure if you guys still need me to post when there’s an updated DumpCast. I suppose I could set it up over on BlogRolling and ping it when it’s updated. Or maybe theres an RSS feed built in to the website (I use iWeb to do that one, I have no idea what’s […]

I Am Not the Next American Idol

I’ve decided to not try out for American Idol. Mostly because I can’t really sing. I can sing but I can’t sing. So I would have to go on the show as one of those flashy people, you know, dressing up like a chicken or whatever. And that wouldn’t be good for anyone. You do […]

A New Home for Izzy

No, no, no, no, we didn’t give her away. (Are you daft? She was one of Junior’s 10th birthday presents. You can’t just give away a birthday present like that. If you could, Mike the Fish wouldn’t have lived with us for 3+ years.) No, we had a lot of issues with her in the […]

Imaginary Follow-Up Conversation with the Hamster

Me: So, you awake in there? Izzy: Zzzzzzzzzz Me: [poke poke] Izzy: Hey! Oh, it’s you. Me: Ya, it’s me. Who were you expecting? Izzy: The short one. He sneaks me sunflower seeds when you aren’t looking. By the way, my ass is huge, I’m scared I won’t fit in the tubes soon. Me: I’ll […]

The Story of the Little Hamster that The Mom of the House Threatened to Kill

Izzy is cute, that’s for sure. She should get down on her knees and thank the good Lord above that she is, and that I love my son, her owner, because she would have been released into the snowy wild this morning if I had my way. You see, in the middle of the night […]

Bring on the Video Feeds

I got my birthday present a week early (well, one of my birthday presents, I’m sure, right honey? Right?)…I picked up a Flip video camera to use for the DumpCast. It’s not the high quality one I want to fully replace the Sony that broke, but I didn’t want to have to wait until this […]

The Value of Hiring Proofers

Junior has inherited my poor spelling skills, if the test I had to sign today because the score was so bad is any indication. I seem to have forged out a life for myself despite the fact that I had to use spell check to make sure I spelled “despite” correctly. (I did.) Of course, […]

Secret Quiz of the Day

Okay, quick, tell me what this is: clickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclick If you guessed “Mr. Dump playing Guitar Hero with the television muted” you’d be right!

Meet Izzy

Izzy is Junior’s new friend. She’s a teddybear hamster. She is getting used to us. Phantom is not getting used to her. We knew he’d freak out, but whew! Izzy’s photo on Flickr…

Ears to You, Snowstorm

I am home today because I have an earache and oh, because it’s snowing like crazy outside. This is the 15th or 16th straight Monday that we’ve had a storm of some kind. Okay, maybe not the 15th or 16th, and certainly not straight, but every storm so far this year, and I count ice […]
