God Wants Me to Sleep In

Saturday night we briefly lost power due to the high winds and other assorted lightening-y activity. It came back within 2 minutes or so, and everything was dandy. Except in the middle of the night, I woke up to go to the bathroom, and noted that the clock said it was somewhere in the 1:15am […]

My $150,000 Wardrobe

I don’t know why everyone is harassing Sarah Palin about her $150,000 wardrobe enhancement. I mean, what’s the big deal? That’s about average in 2008, isn’t it? I know that I still have $25,000 left to spend on my $150,000 wardrobe enhancement, but I’m feeling pretty good about the $125,000 I’ve spent. I mean, like […]

14 Feet is Maybe Too Much

I need a cable to hook up a peripheral to my Mac, and so I went to Best Buy to look for one. (I bought one last year, according to Amazon which tells you on what date you ordered something even if it was a jillion years ago, but I couldn’t tell you where it […]

DumpCast Home in Flux

I didn’t have the $$ to renew my .Mac account (it expired yesterday) so the DumpCast link that used to be in the upper right hand corner has been removed. I don’t know when or where it will re-surface, but I may just host it right here on BDT going forward. I’ll make sure I […]

Unintentional Downtime

I didn’t realize you guys were bigdumptruck-less for a chunk of the weekend until I got my daily traffic report email and it said that my hits were about a third of what they normally are, making me think there was some sort of problem. Apparently, there was some sort of problem. Luckily, it appears […]

I Just Found a Dangerous Site…

Noticed an ad at the bottom of my page today for http://www.gardenstatueshop.com/ and I have a feeling I should just mail my paycheck to them. I wonder if I can set up a wish list with them?

How Could This Be True?

Why am I not finished with my Christmas shopping? I do not understand – I am usually better than this. I have people I need to buy things for that I will not see after Friday, so I have to get my royal butt in gear right away. I’m happy to hear we might see […]

I Do Not Make this Up

I will share the question of the day, as posed by Junior when I was talking about the little girl who was born with 4 extra limbs being able to go home. “What if Britney Spears had a baby she named Spears Spears and it had two faces.” Well, that is is good question, isn’t […]

Code in my Node

I need to get a better understanding of anatomy because I still don’t understand how one side of your nose can be completely stuffy and icky for days at a time while the other side is free and clear. Does that make any sense? Aren’t your nostrils just two tubes going into the same place? […]

Two Go In, How Many Come Out?

Mr Dump and Junior are painting the downstairs bathroom right now. I wonder who will be alive at the end of the day? The reason for the painting? Well, it’s tied to the living room, if you can believe it. We bought a couch yesterday (what, you didn’t spend black Friday looking for a couch?) […]
