I haven’t kept up with the tumblrverse for the last few days because I’ve been getting my ass kicked ten ways to Tuesday. I’m giving myself 22 minutes to catch up on as much as possible and then I have to get more work done.
Sometimes we do things for people because we know...
Missus: You don't need to go.
Me: Yes I do.
Missus: Call them first.
Me: No, they'll tell me I don't need to go.
listen to Horace Silver all day.
Think of me as hunka hunka burnin’ love (diluted for consumption).
If your sun dress is so loosely cut that I can see nipple, then don’t look at me with disgust when I stare.
I would like to tell you about the 10 cool things...
but I’m having a hard time coming up with with even 1 thing.
And now it's in print.: Delivery imminent →
erinmargrethe: Just had a call from the printers to let us know that the papers are in a truck and being delivered to the And Now It’s In Print Offices (in reality the Floate Design Partners studio). We’ve had literally hundreds of RSVP’s for the launch and a large number of pre-sales – largely from people… Order a copy. You won’t regret it. I’ve had a sneak peek, and it’s gorgeous. I didn’t...
I wrote the other day that I was approaching 10 times as many posts as I had followers and that I believed I would stop posting when I reached that number. Since making that post I’ve found 3 new followers meaning I had opportunity to make 30 more posts. So, if you like hearing from me you can thank ibi, monkeyfrog and unforgiving. On the other side you can blame them if you were looking...
Write one leaf about bowling with children.
(via writeoneleaf) The worst part of bowling with children is the way they scream when they go through the ball return.
We’re having bed pizza. I feel like Erin and Ross. 10
I spoke to a friend of mine last night that I haven’t spoken to in about a year. When I asked how he was doing he said: “I’m happily married, I’ve got two wonderful kids, I’m working and I’m in a 10 piece funk band. Things are pretty good.” Yes they are. 11
The Missus: You know what sounds good?
Me: You being home?
The Missus: Sushi and pie in bed with a good movie.
Me: I knew I married you for a reason.
I just drove past a plane crash on the side of the freeway. How’s your Saturday? 17
I am *dissatisfied* with my life. The Missus and I were discussing this last night and we decided to make list of what we want our life to be. The intent of course being that we’ll look at the list and engage in purposeful actions to change it from a ‘to do’ list to a ‘to done’ list. Here is mine, in no particular order and unedited. 1. To do work that provides...
I’m staring at this guys shadow as he plays a bari sax and it’s absolutely mesmerizing. If I didn’t know any better I’d swear I was high. 12
The world would be a better place if there were more Clint’s in it. As long as they weren’t assholes. I can be an asshole at times. Maybe it’s better that the number of us are somewhat limited. 15
Pity. Party of one? Your table is now ready.
16 is the number of posts I have until I reach 10 times the number of posts as followers. In my head I don’t think I will be able to continue posting until I have more followers. Some magic ratio that must be maintained. Also, I’m tired and having problems taking myself to my empty bed and trying to be quiet so as not to wake the children who are both sleeping 350 miles away. I...
At least now I have something to do Saturday Night
Night Ranger, known for a string of hits including their anthem, “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me” and “Sister Christian,” will rock the 2010 Merced County Fair on Saturday, June 19, Merced Sun-Star Day.
The Missus and my offspring left this morning to spend some time in Dana Point with her family. Her dad hasn’t seen the kids since Christmas so it is a surprise fathers day gift for him. I’m in an empty house and while there is plenty that I could be doing I imagine I’ll just meander listlessly around the house trying to find something purposeful to do. I’ll stay up way...
For those of you that think your shit doesn’t stink you may want to talk to the guy in the stall next to me, because his doesn’t!
When we were kids Mom would buy just one box of the “good” cereal which would be consumed as quickly as possible to ensure that you got the most of the good cereal. After the last bowl of cereal was consumed I would look over my vanquished foes with glee. Now that I’m an adult, finishing that box of cereal leaves me filled with shame. Beating your siblings is one thing,...
A sign of maturity.
I used to get drunk and listen to jazz. Now I listen to jazz and get drunk.
Dear wives and/or significant others...
When you cut your hair and I say “I like your hair” there are 3 possible reasons for this comment: 1) I’ve noticed something different about you and as of yet have not figured it out and in order to maintain the possibility of sex I make the easy comment in hopes that it pays off. 2) I think your new haircut makes you look ridiculous but in order to maintain the possibility of...
So I did what they said. Now my children are fed.cause they pay me to do what...– Low
I remember being in a Carls Jr in the mid 90’s with Eric and talking about the caloric content of a double western bacon cheeseburger.
The Rumpled Anarchy of Bill Murray →
givemesomethingtoread: Bill Murray is considered by his colleagues to be a man who has made peace with any private demons he might have had, someone who has brought his personal life and his career into enviable concord. Slightly disheveled and projecting what Richard Donner, the director of ”Scrooged,” calls ”a woolly Zen wisdom,” Murray acts as a kind of father figure to the ”Saturday Night...
And I feel a fool for using 'there' instead of...
When I get riled my grammar suffers.
That photo of the UPS truck in flames gives me nightmares. The accident in the photo happened in Houston and resulted in two people dying. I’ve mentioned before that I work for Big Brown. A large portion of my responsibility is ensuring that my people make it home every day and NEVER get involved in an episode like this. I’ve had my people in bad accidents but nothing like that...
