Just Thinking...

I'm being forced to sit through "Extreme Couponing."

Isn't that just "My Strange Addiction" meets "Hoarders"?

Quote for the Week

Spread the diaper in the position of the diamond with you at bat. Then, fold second base down to home and set the baby on the pitcher's mound. Put first base and third together, bring up home plate and pin the three together. Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game and start all over again.


Jimmy Piersal, on how to diaper a baby

Happy Father's Day!!

The Original Digital Reader

I was multitasking.  The computer had a virus, so I was running some software to clear it up.  My wife’s phone was damaged, so I was trying to fix that as well.  My phone was tied up since I was using it to review instructions and step-by-step videos.

In short, I was hogging the technology, to the dismay of my daughters.  They had kept themselves entertained for while by reading, etc… but I guess they had enough.

My oldest complained, “Can I get to use some technology, please?”

I responded, “Do you know how much technology went into printing books?”

“I mean something more modern!”

“Books are mostly written on computer and printed on computer driven presses.”

“Daddy, you know what I mean!  I mean something digital!”

I help up my hand and wiggled my fingers.  “These are the original digits.  Here, let me show you.  You grab this page with these two digits, and move it over to this side.  You keep doing that as you read.  See?  Digital!”

-o-o-

I don’t think she bought my argument.

Something Awfewy Scwewy Going On

This morning, I grabbed my file, and headed out to my bankruptcy hearing. Traffic was light, and when I arrived, I found a great parking spot.

I walked out and was able to get right across the street without having to dodge the train or any traffic. I arrived at the federal building and there was no line at the security check point. Normally, I light up the metal detector like a Christmas tree, but, today, I made it through without any problems.

I got to the hearing and my clients were there, already signed in, and ready to go.  I got called reasonably early, no major issues with my case, and I got back to the office at a reasonable hour.

Ok.  What's going on?  Is this a joke?

Update

I just wanted to give everyone a quick update since I've been keeping away for a minute. On May 30th, we welcomed our son into our lives. Mom and rugrat are doing great and are now at home.
