I likes it.
The reason that I know about cows is because my dad is a doctor (every time I say that I feel like I should change my name to Blaine and drive some douchey car) of animal science. I grew up on dairies and research farms. I assisted my dad in preg-checking cattle, conducting necropsies, inoculations, castrations and all manner of animal husbandry. My Dad now has serious problems with his...
"I know about cows" Just added to my resume.
Because it could be useful to tell a future employer why it is important AND necessary to encase your arm up to the shoulder in a condom and shove it into the anus of a cow. This behavior is not only tolerated but encouraged.
She placed her hand on my bottle and raised it eagerly to her lips. I watched in fascination as she opened her mouth. “Do you like my Coke in your mouth?” She choked and spit it out. “What the hell is wrong with you!?” “You could have asked first.”
The Missus: I hate Justin B______. I don't know anything about him but I hate his hair. That and he thinks he's cool.
Me: He really should hang out with Leif Garrett. Leif would make a great mentor.
The Missus: Who?
Can we please ban the word 'bling'?
I see The Missus and I remember the first time I saw her. (I also remember how I had to coerce her into a second meeting).
But still more impressive to me is the coming of the snow-flowers, falling...– John Muir
Who I am.
I’m a Mormon. I have been my whole life. I was born into the church and grew up in it. When I was an early teen I began to go a different route. Even when I bore no outward signs of my beliefs and was living in direct contradiction to those beliefs I could never deny them. I am no stranger to coffee, tea, tobacco, alcohol and drugs both legal and illegal. I have had pre-marital sex and not...
I have a feeling the Dash will be quiet tonight.

coyotesqrl: The Internet was developed as a side effect of a massive nuclear arms race, one in which we fully expected and planned for massive deaths and infrastructure destruction. The point of the Internet is to remain functional even if C&C is destroyed. The race to the moon gave us myriad advances in… Agreed.
I imagine there will be a lot written and talked about today with the anniversary of the Challenger explosion. For me it is an event forever locked in my mind as well. I was 8 and sitting at my desk with the rest of my class watching the launch. The image is burned in my mind. The reality of life and it’s shortness. The dissapointment in the perceived perfection of the abilities of man up to...
I miss the sun.
Music makes your problems and pain disappear.
Stupid donuts! Why do you have to be so tasty.
I’ve eaten healthy all week. I’ve run 10 miles (I know this may not seem like much but it takes a lot of effort to get this much sexy beast moving). My moods have been better and I’ve been an overall happier person. Stupid donuts.
Every time I find myself in close proximity to a train I hear Whil Wheaton yell ‘train’ in slow motion just like he did in Stan By Me.
Woke this morning to the sound of The Missus saying highly appropriate inappropriate things. I came to full ‘alertness’ quickly only to discover that she had recorded those things and set the message as my alarm. Well played, my dear. Well played.
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day....
It’s been a long time since I was passionate about what it is that I do on a day to day basis. When I was young and starting in this profession everything was new and I was excited about what I was doing. As the years have gone by I felt more and more that I was simply rolling a stone to the top of the hill only to watch it roll down again. There is no forward movement. Each month we meet...
Missing 'Mega Python vs Gatoroid'...
was not the biggest disappointment of my evening.
For those keeping tabs on my day.
We skipped the zoo and went to my parents. Where, due to the saintliness of my mother and sister, we were granted a reprieve from our two adorable children and went on this thing called a date. Apparently, on a date, two consenting individuals engage in activities together. We elected to ‘see a movie’ and ‘go to dinner’. Both were quite delightful and I fully enjoyed the...
For the record this foggy day will probably be...
Love California. LOVE IT.
Trying to figure out what to do today.
Yosemite National Park (The Missus is against it because it’s a lot of time in the car). Castle Air Musuem (Cheaper, the kids are free. It’s practically in our backyard but it’s cold and foggy and we’re not sure how interested the kids will be in looking at vintage aircraft) Fresno Chaffee Zoo (Always a win but a bit of a drive and it would probably involve a visit to...

Trying this on as a nickname.

I formatted that last post so that it wouldn’t just look like some enormous pile of words. Alas, tumblr seems to disagree with my choices and feels it would be better viewed as a brick of text. Sincerest apologies, Clint
How big must the giant be before before they become invisible? We are surprised by the giants in our life. People that we never see. People that we take for granted. It is only after the death of a giant that we discover place they filled in this world. A man had taken his own life very unexpectedly. He was, until very recently, a happy and dedicated man who found value in relationships and...
blanddiva11: ripslich: mrsbadcrumble: xntrek: debshock: davio1962: Reblog! Additional commentary that has nothing to do with anything! Accusatory reply claiming victimisation and political commentary based on a point of false logic! Say, this reminds me of a personal anecdote I was just waiting for an excuse to tell. WHERE IS THE UNCREDITED IMAGE? Why are you always so...
I remember when I first joined facebook. It was cool and fun and I could interact with people I had lost touch with. I could keep people informed about the goings on in my life. I updated frequently and checked back frequently to keep up with my friends. It was long before I started hating everyone. I had too much information. I didn’t want anymore. I try to limit my updates to events or...
