      OK, so I guess I'm back here. I'm sure you're all doing just fine without me, so I make no guarantees that I'll be staying forever. I tend to fall off the face of...well, damn near everything once in a while.

      I have a couple of questions. How are all of you? Why hasn't my Karma gone down since I haven't been here in 2 years? What am I supposed to do with all of these Mods?

      Anyway, I think last time I left, I was about to go get a baby out of my wife's belly. Then I disapeared. Well, everything went according to plan.

      Here is Eliot & Alydia. She was pretty excited to get a baby brother.

      Here is Eliot up close.
      100_6304.jpg

      In the meantime, I taught Alydia to Love the Sharks and to hate the Wings....and the Stars.
      100_6376.jpg

      I'm going to jump forward a bit, because, truthfully, when Eliot was a baby, he looked a little like an ugly old man. That doesn't mean I didn't love him, I'm just speaking the truth.

      Here we are last Halloween. I can't believe it's already almost that time of year again, but we did (and plan to again) carve pumpkins. It's fantabulous.

      Here are the kids a little more recently....like 3 weeks ago.
      IMG_2276.jpg

      And Alydia entered a pumpkin at the fair. She won largest true pumpkin.

      I have to go for the time being, but I'll be back sometime.

      So here is the deal. Tomorrow, I will be taking my wife to the hospital where she will give birth to my son. I'll probably fill you in with more details on Friday, but don't really bank on it. Wish me luck. Molly, I'm pretty sure you're up for e-godparent nominations since I'm trying to keep it in the "family".

      This Thursday is THE best game of the entire NFL season. The Green Bay Packers are traveling to Dallas to take on the Cowboys. Two 10-1 teams playing for homefield advantage in the playoffs. It'll be awesome, I'm sure.

      We will see a lot of this:

      picoday_favre_god.jpg


      And hopefully we'll see a lot more of this:


      Sports_SeahawksVsCowboys2.jpg

      Oh no Tony! Did somebody hurt your feelings? It's OK to cry, just let it out...


      Oh, and go harass this guy He happens to be a fan of that God forsaken team in Dallas. Hopefully someday, he'll buy a bigger pair of pants so the pressure is taken off of his brain and he'll realize the error he has made. Until then, give him shit. We've got 50 mod points riding on this one...what a sucker.

      Anyway, hope everyone gets the game. It's on the NFL network, but I'm pretty sure a local Green Bay station is airing it so I'm set.

      Enjoy the holidays, because who knows when I'll put another journal up here.

    • Sesame Street

      11 years ago

      herbius

      Apparently I ruined Sesame Street...

      So there we were. Jamie and I took Alyida to Sesame Street Live last night. All in all it was nice. Not something I'd normally watch, but it was hella fun to watch Alydia's mouth hang open while Big Bird and Elmo took the stage.

      The overall story was what to be when I get older. Obviously this message was for my daughter and all of the other children there since I grew up to be immature. Anyway, all that aside. Some of the characters were policemen, firefighters, weather...well...that one happened to be Elmo and I'm not sure what gender Elmo is so weatherperson and on and on and on. Great, I've got no problem with that.

      My problem was with this one song that everything was centered around. I don't know what the name was, but the words were (not probably exactly, but close and you'll get the drift), "When I grow up, I want to be a part of this big family..." In other words, "I'm not an individual, I'm a part of a group and we're all the same."

      Jamie asked me at the end how I liked it and I told her it was nice except for that part. She told me I ruined Sesame Street and I shouldn't think so much about that that sort of stuff and I should just take it at face value.

      I don't know. The best time to indoctrinate children is when they don't know that they're being indoctrinated. Did I over react? I don't think so, but maybe. I almost think Jamie won't invite me back for next year.

    • Robbed a liquer store...

      11 years ago

      herbius

      almost. I'm not sure exactly what led up to this "event" specifically, but the liquer store in Chilton is closing/ is now closed. I feel really bad for the couple that owns/owned it because they are super fantastic people. (This was a specialty type of liquer store, just so you know that it isn't one that you buy your mad-dog and what not) They carried a lot of wines from all over the world and hundreds of different types of specialty beers along with different types of actually liquer.

      Anyway, on Sunday we loaded up our vehicle with most of my wife's family and headed to the liquer store because it was the last day they were open and they wanted to liquidate as much as they could. We ended up spending just shy of $250.00 that included 4 bottles of Crown Royal, 80 bottles of Sam Adams, 30 bottles of Guiness Extra Stout, some other beer that I won't name because it won't mean anything to you, a nice bottle of cognac, and several bottles of wine. Now this was just what my wife and I bought. Both her brother and her sister spent as much as we did.

      Needless to say, we were there quite a while. After about an hour, Jamie's brother told the owner that we were "working up quite a thirst..." so he just let us drink shit out of their cooler. Like I said earlier, these are wonderful people. Anyway, we had a blast

      As you know, I'm laid up with my "foot disorder" so when Jamie and I got home, I sat down with a couple of the beers we bought (since she can't drink because she's pregnant) and I watched her carry everything into the basement. As she carried it, I kept the calculator in front of me to add up the "actual cost" of the haul we brought home. It came up to be $566 and some odd cents. In my opinion, we did very well and we had fun.

      Wish you could have been there.

      Ouch, indeed. I had foot surgery yesterday and I'm laid up now. I had 2 bones fused together and now I'm in recovery mode. I could really use some ice cream to go with the kick ass drugs that I have. This is almost worth it.

      So true. McAffee was the biggest resource hog. I always recommend the free AVG. It does a scan every day when I'm asleep, as well as it can find viruses that even McAffee can't find somehow, as it must have a bigger virus definition library. =)

      Just for the record, I knew it wasn't jumping jacks.

      Would it save water if you just turned on the sink and put your head over it with a towel? I mean, it's your asthma...I was just wondering if that would save water. Of course, if you don't pay for utilities I'd turn on the shower.


      When I'm coughing really badly, I don't have the... coordination... to stand over the sink, with a towel over my head, coughing, and trying to breathe in steam, and somehow not cough myself into faceplanting the faucet.

      It would probably save water. But since I'm out of inhaler juice, I just have to do whatever I can to make sure I don't get an actual attack at the time. Saving money doesn't really come to mind, lol.

      Though, our water heater is really old, so it doesn't pump out a whole lot of warm water for long anyway. If I still need steam by then, then I boil water on the stove and breathe the steam in from there.

    • Jabberwocky

      11 years ago

      What, like jumping jacks?


      Ah, no.

      Any medication I take for my asthma will give me the jitters. Jitters = a heart that beats really fast and the shakes in my hands, arms, and legs.

      While I wait for the medication to kick in though, I have other things I can do to make sure I'm not coughing until I vomit or pass out.

      First, I put a pot of coffee on. While that brews, I go into the bathroom, shut the door, turn off the lights, and turn the shower on as hot as it will go. And I sit there and breathe in steam until the waters goes cold. And then I go drink coffee. Lots of fucking coffee.

      For example, last night, I drank an entire pot of coffee, just little ole me, drinking an entire pot of coffee - black, no sugar.

      A steam-filled head + caffeine + the jitters from the meds = not sleeping at all any time soon.

      I wasn't actually able to get to sleep until 8 am this morning. it sucked.

    • Jabberwocky

      11 years ago

      Why yes, yes I am.

      My asthma kicked my ass tonight.

      Everything I do to keep my asthma at bay makes me very, very awake.

      "Packers suck

      Enjoy ur crappy record loser

      and have fun sucking again next year with Farve gone...the only good player on ur team"

      Packers will suck.

      They WILL have a crappy record following Farve's retirement. Rodgers is not the answer.

      They will suck once Farve leaves...but for now I'll root for any NFC team to beat the Patriots.

      Still your comment was kinda random but laxadazikale because I posted that a long ass time ago.

      I already own an HD-DVD player, but I cancelled Netflix so the only movies I have are 300 and King Kong...

      I would recommend not buying a player unless you have an HD set to watch them on.
      If you do, I would recommend neither right now.

      Wait until the war is over and you'll be sure to have not wasted any money.

      HD-DVD is better, but who knows who'll win this stupid format war.

      Dunno, but it's probably funny. Probably someone who is friends with DeeMonstar. He posted a very inflammatory journal making fun of Sept 11 and I called him out, dropped him from my friends list, and blocked him.

      What's strange is that I've only gotten 3 lames. They obviously didn't try to work too hard on it. :-D

      I found out that there is free camping for marshals so I'll be camping on-site, probably around Turn 2 where the worker camping is (although I think I may prefer the Carousel campground to be closer to the showers). Either way, I'll be staying in the infield somewhere. I'm flying in on Wednesday and will register and likely piss the afternoon/evening away and I'm flying back home on Monday, giving myself the morning to recover from whatever happens Sunday night. smiley0.gif
