As we really haven’t been watching as much of the Olympics as we normally do (God bless YouTube highlights) and our shows are not airing due to said games, Katie and I were worried we’d have nothing to watch on TV.
Pretty much everyone got last week’s challenge photo. So, um, yeah, it was too easy.
Today, I asked Nathan what he wanted for lunch. He looked at me and said, “Cheesecake.”
Nathan is shy one tooth as of this morning.
Did I mention that Katie and I rejoined our old gym? Technically, she started back on Black Friday because they were having a special deal for the final days of 2017. I never went until the final day of the deal.
As tomorrow is yet another predicted “snowpacolypse” or “snowmageddon” or whatever the hell you wanna call it (drama queens), and Nathan’s school has already been canceled (wusses), howsabout a related TBT...
A coworker sent this to me today. I burst out laughing. It’s freaking hilarious.
When I first started high school, I started taking guitar lessons. I was never very good at it, but I enjoyed it overall. I continued for just about a decade until grad school and then sold off all my gear. I just wasn't playing regularly, if at all, and my stuff was collecting dust.
I don’t think anyone got last week’s Macro Monday challenge photo. If someone did, please let me know and I’ll update this post. Cool? Anyway, here it is...
First off, congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles on winning their first ever Super Bowl! It was an amazing game. That’s all you need say about it.
Today, we attended a Birthday Par-tea for Nathan’s cousin Ava. All the kids were dressed up as though for a full-on tea party.
I think I kinda like the idea of doing these goal recaps again. Let’s see how I did, shall we?
I’ve always loved this photo and used it as a wallpaper on my old iPad.
Funko recently announced a line of their POP! vinyl figures for the original Jurassic Park movie. admittedly they’re cool and, despite the fact it’s been half a year since I bought a toy, I’d really like to get a dilophosaurus.
This is why you don’t have dads help their kids with schoolwork.
There were lots of almost correct guesses... pliers, needle nose pliers... all good. Then a friend on Instagram guessed “one of those needle-nose scissor-action tool things” and how could I say no. Sounded pretty close to...
I’m not usually one to care about aging. It’s simply a number. True aging is mental and/or physical. Either your psyche goes Old Yeller or your body does. If you can make both skew younger, you’re set, right?
Hey, look at that! Not only is it not a post about home automation gone awry but it’s my first video of 2018... and it’s on time... and it’s not about home automation.
This is really getting frustrating. Our iHome plugs now refuse to work with Wink or Echo or lord only knows what else.
For any of you all who have higher degrees of home automation than I — let’s be honest, that could be anyone — what do you do when your home network goes down?
This shouldn’t be funny. It truly should not be. But it is.
As I recall, last year, I received an email of listening stats from both Spotify and Last.fm. As neither have arrived yet and we’re almost done with January, I sought out my own stats via the Last.fm website.
I was corrected just now that the Macro Monday I thought was fluorite is actually moldy cheese. I wondered what that smell was. Oy!
Dear U.S. Government,
Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat or an Independent or whatever... DO YOUR DAMN JOB!
I’ve been annoyed these last couple months because we have a DVR season pass set for new episodes of Saturday Night Live.
So many options, so little time.
The actual, physical act, not the band. Katie and I when we went sledding with my brother and then-future sister-in-law.
Time for my first installment of Snippety goodness for 2018. And it’s on a Wednesday, just like the old days. Buckle up! Hunker down! Step aside!
30 years ago today.
Damn, I’m old.
Lots of foodie and dessert guesses on last week’s Macro Monday and only one “chocolate chip cookie” from last week’s winner, Jordan. Sorry but I gotta stand firm on this one. Only the cookie gets it.
For the second year in a row, Katie and I went with my brother and his wife to see a Professional Bull Riders (PBR) event here in Chicago. I really can’t explain why but I love it. It’s a ton of fun.
Katie came up with this grand idea for a restoration that involves an old door. To what end? We cannot yet say. But we do have a door and have started the work.
A coworker brought up an interesting point to me the other day... Indiana Jones is a completely pointless character to the overall action of the Nazis and Nazi sympathizers in The Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Last weekend, Katie and I stopped at both Sam’s Club and Costco to pick up some needs. On the way home, I asked her which club we should continue with when our memberships come due.
I read this line tonight in Leia, Princess of Alderaan by Claudia Gray...
