04/18/09 – Weird logic

For those of you who may have missed it at the Moblah’g, check this out. No…he still won’t pet a dog.  But he will allow a six foot python around his neck.  Love that boy.

04/17/09 – Quote of the day

“I think to have faith in nothing at all is to run pretty close to madness. I think insanity is very close behind if you are totally nihilistic about everything. You’ve got to believe in something.” -Sting

04/16/09 – Something to write

Something about having a notebook with me where ever I go encourages me to write.  Although I still wish I were a pen and paper guy; my brother keeps a journal with him wherever he goes so he can jot down ideas and thoughts immediately.  I guess it shows the 10 year disparity between us.  I do remember the thrill of the open, blank page too, but my tenure with..

04/15/09 – Salt. The boy loves salt.

I’ve always known that Sumner likes salty foods.  As soon as he was young enough to reach the salt shakers at restaurants, he has tried his hardest to put sodium on everything he eats*. Yesterday evening, I set myself to task with the weekly laundry duties, while putting SaraJane down for a nap and turning a movie on for Sumner.  It’s acceptable to me that Sumner can choose a snack..

04/13/2009 – Fuzz

Today was a long day for some reason. Not really something I can pinpoint at the moment, as the standout emotion I am feeling right now is a calming one.  I am fiddling around on my laptop while Sumner swims in our neighborhood pool.  Very satisfying.  I still have a lot to learn on Mac OS X, so much in fact that I really don’t care that my computer isn’t..

04/01/2009 – Before and after

I really wanted to post something April Fools style today, but the uncanny number of Web sites and blogs pulling pranks was staggering enough to turn me off of it pretty quickly.  You never know what to believe on a day like this.  It’s like one early poster said, “April Fools + The Internet = Crap”. So, instead of a hastily concocted lie about pregnancy or moving or some other.. Read More

03/29/09 – Amazon.com Gift Card Winners

Cue the drama, folks.  The names were dropped into a hat (dish, actually), and the wife pulled the names, one by one. Congratulations to Eric M. and Chelsea L.!  The gift cards will be e-mailed to you electronically within the week. So, that was pretty fun, neh?  I’ll do this again in a few months.  What type of prizes would you like to see?

03/24/2009 – Welcome to the new blog, plus a chance to win!

Hello, what’s this?  A new blog? I had a heck of a time getting this new site ready for launch.  I thought that it’d be nice and easy…install a new blogging software on my Web site, take the main page down for a while, and voila…but no!  I had 42 headaches to contend with.  But now I can take a deep breath, relax, and begin posting the daily rants and..

3/24/2009 – Hackbook?

I ordered myself a new Dell Mini 9 “Netbook” today with the money I had been saving from my birthday.  They had a great deal going at only $199, though I did choose a few small upgrades. Ship date isn’t until mid-April, so I’m not holding my breath for a quick arrival.  But when it does get here, I’m removing Linux and installing OS X.  It should be a fun.. Read More
