And I made it...
Goodnight 2011. Good morning 2012.
It’s been a good year and a bad week. It’s been a bad week because I’ve been off work between Christmas and New Years for the first time in 16 years and Katie has had the wonderful 1-2 combination of early pregnancy sickness and a brutal cold. I have done very nearly nothing all week. My time off from work is precious to me because I spend a lot of time working. I hate that...
Got away from home for a bit today. Spent 7 and 1/2 hours driving for 90 minutes of something different. It was worth it.
In my youth there was a constant shortage of things to do. I had the benefit of living in the country where we were encouraged by our parents to leave the house. There was never much concern about where we were because we were far enough away from everywhere that there was little fear of us encountering foul play. One afternoon after school or perhaps during school my friends and I were driving...

Bored out of my mind driving for an hour. Entertainment welcome.
I'm the asshole.
Entire house is sick. Vacation plans have been reduced to taking care of sick people. I love them and they’re worth it but I’d be lying if I wasn’t pouting a lot about the lack of doing anything while I don’t have to be at work for 60+ hours this week (like I am the other 48 weeks of the year).
Dear currently or formerly pregnant ladies,
If you are among the group of women that have glorious pregnancies and you just loved being pregnant, please send some of that magic to my wife. Pregnancy is a miserable experiencence for her. Never ending and incapacitating illness. Top that with a delightful cold my children have passed along to her. She’s not a happy camper right now. Me, I’m just a useless man and know nothing to...
I started off the year in a very good place. The first four months went very well. I was regaining control of myself and then I lost my way. I’d like to think of myself as fit fat. I’m in better shape than I look but I could be doing so much better. I’m complacent and that’s bad. My wife should be jealous. I want her to wonder if I’m being checked out. I want her to...
I'm on vacation dammit.
I have taken a vacation. This is the first time I’ve had time off between Christmas and New Years in 16 years. My phone has been exploding all morning. I just turned it off without checking the voicemails or text messages. I can deal with the shitstorm next Tuesday.

Oh that’s a terrible thing! We need to get it out of there!– My 3 year old son upon seeing the ultrasound of his newest sibling.
Deep down they're still good people.
Throughout the day today and for the course of this month I’ve done a fair amount of complaining about my people. I need to remember that for all the headaches and all the stress and grief that they give me they all have pretty big hearts. My building is located along a busy highway. About 45 minutes ago a white Ford Explorer collided with a Green F-150. The explorer was thrown on...
Here's your warning.
Before my penis on the dash.
Something besides Christmas and packages and time...
I’ve been on tumblr for about two years now and I’ve made some great interactions and met some wonderful people here. I am greatful for this community both the people and tumblr itself for creating a platform that has allowed this network of people to be created. While the online life is great it is still greatly lacking and does nothing to bolster my skills in human interaction...
You know that thing when someone starts freaking out and running around and being hysterical and someone gives them a shovel to the face to call them down. Well, if you’ve got a shovel I sure could use it.
Yes, I AM picky
When shopping online I spend a lot of time trying to locate a product at a fair price AND with a company that uses my carrier of choice. I often will pay more for an item if it is being shipped using my carrier of choice. Am I biased to the Brown company? Yes, yes I am. If your website advertises that you ship with UPS and when I check out I was given the option of UPS ground, UPS 2nd Day...
And a slight problem with the elves at Helms Deep.
Don’t get me wrong. I love these films. They did damn near perfection on everything except for that.
I'm re-watching LOTR and trying to stay my...
Eowyn not Arwen. Eowyn.
I feel like I just won the spelling bee!
judyschu replied to your post: The label says; ‘Plays well with others’. It makes me soooo happy that you ride your bike to work!!! I am so proud of you!!!
The label says; 'Plays well with others'.
I was riding home from work today and as I passed through a neighborhood some children in the 5-8 yr range were playing in a front yard. One of the older boys had a toy gun and I noticed him taking aim at me. BANG! he yelled. BANG! BANG! I didn’t react. I kept pedaling and moved on my way. This is not what I truly wanted to do. By the third BANG! I wanted to weave and wobble on my bike,...
I’m a dog shaped ashtray I’m a shrugging moustache wearing a speedo tuxedo I’m...– Chilly Gonzales — I am Europe
I can neither confirm nor deny the allegations that I may or may not have just recited the theme song to The Fresh Prince of Bel Aire as a bed time story to my son.
The greatest thing about all of these Christmas...
Is that I can catch up on tumblr.
I am not a large or intimidating person.
Nor am I a fighter but I will gladly get into a physical altercation and potentially have my ass handed to me to try to protect someone who is unable or unwilling to protect themselves.
I am the father of a wonderful little girl. I am very much aware of the fact that this wonderful little girl is going to grow up to be a wonderful woman. I am also very much aware that she is going to most likely choose to share her life with someone else. A short time ago I was at a gas station. At the pump next to me was a couple. The boyfriend/husband called the girlfriend a...
