Some good. Some bad. That’s April for ya!
Ten more books. Ten!! What the heck is wrong with me?? Every month I say it has to slow down or stop completely and it’s not. WTH??
I’ll never understand what you did to piss Mother Nature off so much that she just can’t decide what should be going on here weather-wise.
I’m not sure if these viewing stats from Netflix regarding Nathan’s preferred video themes say more about him as a kid or about me and my parenting of him.
Child art is always interesting, isn’t it? Just a total crapshoot as to what you’ll get vs what it’s supposed to be.
Per Wikipedia... Scam baiting (or scambaiting) is a form of internet vigilantism primarily used towards advance-fee fraud, IRS impersonation scam, technical support scams, pension scams, and consumer financial fraud.
I noticed only tonight that Stef popped in there with a partial guess of “Spider-Man 7.” While definitely not the full title, or even the right film number, it was the closest legit guess so it wins.
One of the things I’m tasked with checking on websites is the user experience (UX). Think of it as asking “Would the user enjoy or find this website easy to use?” If yes, great. If no, can I think of something that might make it better?
Perspective is a funny thing sometimes. Funny in how it can be used to make a point. Funny how aspects can be left out to make a different point.
I’ve now watched Ted Lasso enough that I want, nay, demand that all American sports suffer relegation and work to earn promotion to elite status. No more of it just being about championships, I want them to have to work to earn and maintain their spot in leagues and, consequently, give lesser teams a chance at bigger paychecks when they have played harder. College athletics, too. Earn those conference placements.
Here’s a question for ya… if you could only watch the acting gigs of one actor for the rest of time, who would it be?
Light ‘em if you got ‘em!
Most things that happen in life supposedly serve some greater purpose whether we realize it or not. Given that, what "greater purpose" is assisted by the existence of seasonal allergies? Tell me! Now! What purpose is served by making us all inflamed and sneezy and runny and drippy and miserable and hate filled?
My buddy Steve dug deep — like hand-into-your-chest-and-removing-your-heart deep — to get last week’s challenge photo.
We just booked our second trip of the year... well, it's mostly booked.
It would seem that Nathan is going to have a dual visit tonight from the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.
I’m just curious what kind of person it takes to think, “Hey! My jacket is kinda flat. I’m gonna throw a few tennis balls in the dryer with it and hope for the best!”
Something happened to me today that has never happened in my 22 years as a working professional… I got a promotion!
Some more YouTube gems for your viewing pleasure!
It was Christa with the win again on last week’s challenge photo.
As a recovering Wordle/Quordle addict, I found this article about how breaking your Wordle streak can affect you to be very interesting.
One of Nathan’s favorite book series of the last few years has been Aaron Blabey’s Bad Guys books. There have been 14 books that we’ve read multiple times. Me to him and him to me.
Last night, I finished the first volume of James Tynion IV’s graphic novel Something is Killing the Children.
I love Pete Davidson. No, not in the way Kim Kardashian loves Pete Davidson. I just think he’s a funny dude and I’m so glad he got his life straight so the world could see how funny he is.
I really need to break out my old Sony Alpha D-SLR and try out some of these tricks. This guy (CrimsonViper1138) has some really simple ideas that look fantastic.
You know you’ve developed a reputation as a cassette collector (although VERY dialed back in the last couple years) when people start picking up tapes for you.
Sorry it’s been two weeks since I posited the most recent #MiniMoviePosterMonday challenge photo. Vacation, yanno?
I have enough trouble keeping up with one family. How in the hell do some people balance two or more families??
It’s never easy coming back from a vacation. Never has been. Never will be.
Ain't no foolin'! It's April 1, yo!
Ohhhhh, buddy! While it slowed down a bit at the end (because of vacation), I still had another good month in March!
Our second day in Seattle, and last full day of our vacation, we spent at MoPOP and just generally wandering Seattle.
This was our first of two true days of all Seattle and nothing but Seattle. Total tourist stuff. Seattle Aquarium, the Great Wheel, harbor and locks boat tour, Chihuly Gardens and Museum, and the Space Needle.
Day 3 from the Emerald City, yo! Actually, this was our driving trip outside Seattle and down into Oregon. We’ve got Mt. Rainier, Alder Dam, Mt. St. Helens, and sites from Twilight, The Goonies, and 10 Things I Hate About You.
