Today was a pretty good day. Worked the morning, then split to take Jen to her baby Dr appointment. All OK there. Also ate my favorite pizza for lunch - Double Dave's. Yum, Yum, Yum, Yum. Delicioso!

Had ice cream at Culver's. Today's flavor was Trufflicious. It wasn't. Choco ice cream, with caramel, choco bits and those nasty, old tasting, roasted pecans. Without the pecans it would be OK. Jen says I'm spoiled b/c I am used to fresh pecans off the ranch. She's right. Culver's, I say to thee: ditch the shitty pecans.

Sorry about my language lately.

Just clicked an ad. Rare for me, but interesting this time. At VRitems, you can buy game items for Diablo II and World of Warcraft. Does anyone still play Diablo II, I wonder? I think we played it for about the first 6 months after it came out, and then went on to something else. It came out on Jun 29, 2000. I can't imagine people are still playing it...now, if they sold Dungeon Siege II items, well, then...

Little Gym today was great and not so great. We got him in without any crying or resistance, but I made the mistake of trying to get him to participate in things and that caused problems. I felt bad because I really got mad at him for not taking part, and I shouldn't have done that. I was just encouraged by the first part, and should have known better than to press my luck. Oh well, one day I'll learn. We had fun while we were having fun though, and I'll just learn (hopefully) a lesson from the other part. Yeah, I haven't learned my lesson yet, but I'm trying. Just leave him alone or try to take part in doing what he wants to do. Why can't I get that thru my thick skull? Advice?

Happy Memorial Day weekend. Yeehaw, time off.

Stuff I've done over this three-day weekend:

  • Driven almost none to avoid the idiots supposedly on the highways.
  • Spent 40 fucking minutes in the check out line at walmart. We're writing to Bentonville.
  • Eaten Taco Sunday tacos.
  • Mowed the back lawn.
  • String trimmed back and front.
  • Started hacking at second Sago Palm not to kill, but just to "shape."
  • Dug weeds out of front garden.
  • Helped shampoo carpet in Bren's room, Big room, and our room.
  • Tied up tomato cages that were saaaagging over.
  • Eaten first of the season garden tomatoes. Picked 3 bigs, and 9 smalls today.
  • Played a ton of the free TradeWinds Legends on Yahoo games. Now playing the full version. Both of us are. We're addicted.
  • Stayed up until like 2 am two nights in a row.
  • Flew out of bed to put trash at curb this morning upon hearing trash truck down the street somehow in my sleep. Trash man takes off for no Holiday.

When I have some, here's what I'll do.

Dollar Bill Origami Tshirt

Try this right now!!! You must! You cannot resist! Take your shirt off and try it. It works! I did it poorly the first time, and almost perfectly the second time. Wow! I love the Japanese!



Wax on! Wax off!

I love Ads of all kinds. I have a fascination with good advertising, and conversely a dislike for stupid, badly thought, or misspelled ads. That last one is the woooooorrrst! Get a freakin dictionary, people.

Here are some really good ads that I just saw on CoMagz. Click to see em bigger.



Some days I feel like the 3rd guy. Hehe.

I thought I'd do the guy a favor. I've downloaded a few fonts, and he asks for a link back if you do. So, here ya go, mate!

(For give me for laughing --- snicker, snicker, snicker --- but Creamundo.com sure sounds like a pr0n site...)

I don't know why I live here. Hot, humid, mosquitoes, foreign drivers without insurance...take my advice, don't move to San Antonio, or if you do, get the heck out from the beginning of May to the end of September.

Partly cloudy, my ass! Yeah, in Weeeeeeesst Texas, but the clouds are afraid of the heat here!

I just hear about DC Snacks on the splendid table today, and I think it is a really cool concept. It's like a little, specialized, Netgrocer.

I wish that I knew someone in the delivery area that I could surprise with some snacks. That would be fun. I think that the idea of quick delivery foods is pretty smart. We ordered from Netgrocer once and were very happy with it. The order came fast, well packed, and we were able to get things that we could never find here locally.

Kudos, DC Snacks people!

P.S. Speaking of Netgrocer, I was just fooling around on their site and found this. I'm not sure how nutritious it is.



Not only is it 0% natural, it's so far from natural that it's 00%!!! High Fiber, Low Fat, 00% natural? Hey, I've heard of that, but here in Texas we call it cardboard.

This is a great article. I laughed out loud several times while looking at these things. There are some that I don't think should be on the list, some that I never used, and others that I used and agree! I must say that I'm a little miffed that the Timex DataLink Watch is on the dishonorable mention list. I loved mine and it was like the best watch I ever had!!! I'd get another one right now if I could!!! :)

Here's some good "light" reading on the subject of how to operate Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean ride. I've read about half of it and it is intriguing!

I'm not sure what one might do with these SETI @ Home stamps, but here they are. Maybe they could be stickers or something thru Cafepress...

This is interesting to me, not really for the moral message, but for the teaching style. It can't really be something that really happened can it? I don't think it is a genuine occurrence, after some Google searching, but I did find some interesting discussion here.

There was a certain Professor of Religion named Dr. Christianson, a studious man who taught at a small college in the western United States. Dr. Christianson taught the required survey course in Christianity at this particular institution. Every student was required to take this course his or her freshman year, regardless of his or her major.

Although Dr. Christianson tried hard to communicate the essence of the gospel in his class, he found that most of his students looked upon the course as nothing but required drudgery. Despite his best efforts, most students refused to take Christianity seriously.

This year, Dr. Christianson had a special student named Steve. Steve was only a freshman, but was studying with the intent of going onto seminary for the ministry.
Steve was popular, he was well liked, and he was an imposing physical specimen. He was now the starting center on the school football team, and was the best student in the professor's class.

One day, Dr. Christianson asked Steve to stay after class so he could talk with him.

"How many push-ups can you do?"

Steve said, "I do about 200 every night."

"200? That's pretty good, Steve," Dr. Christianson said. "Do you think you could do 300?"

Steve replied, "I don't know.... I've never done 300 at a time."

"Do you think you could?" again asked Dr. Christianson.

"Well, I can try," said Steve.

"Can you do 300 in sets of 10? I have a class project in mind and I need you to do about 300 push-ups in sets of ten for this to work. Can you do it? I need you to tell me you can do it," said the professor.

Steve said, "Well... I think I can...yeah, I can do it"

Dr. Christianson said, "Good! I need you to do this on Friday. Let me explain what I have in mind."

Friday came and Steve got to class early and sat in the front of the room. When class started, the professor pulled out a big box of donuts. No, these weren't the normal kinds of donuts, they were the extra fancy BIG kind, with cream centers and frosting swirls. Everyone was pretty excited it was Friday, the last class of the day, and they were going to get an early start on the weekend with a party in Dr. Christianson's class.

Dr. Christianson went to the first girl in the first row and asked, "Cynthia, do you want to have one of these donuts?"

Cynthia said, "Yes."

Dr. Christianson then turned to Steve and asked, "Steve, would you do ten push-ups so that Cynthia can have a donut?"

"Sure." Steve jumped down from his desk to do a quick ten. Then Steve again sat in his desk. Dr. Christianson put a donut on Cynthia's desk.

Dr. Christianson then went to Joe, the next person, and asked, "Joe, do you want a donut?"

Joe said, "Yes." Dr. Christianson asked, "Steve would you do ten push-ups so Joe can have a donut?"

Steve did ten push-ups, Joe got a donut. And so it went, down the first aisle, Steve did ten pushups for every person before they got their donut.

Walking down the second aisle, Dr. Christianson came to Scott. Scott was on the basketball team, and in as good condition as Steve. He was very popular and never lacking for female companionship.

When the professor asked, "Scott do you want a donut?"

Scott's reply was, "Well, can I do my own pushups?"

Dr. Christianson said, "No, Steve has to do them."

Then Scott said, "Well, I don't want one then."

Dr. Christianson shrugged and then turned to Steve and asked, "Steve, would you do ten pushups so Scott can have a donut he doesn't want?"

With perfect obedience Steve started to do ten pushups.

Scott said, "HEY! I said I didn't want one!"

Dr. Christianson said, "Look, this is my classroom, my class, my desks, and these are my donuts. Just leave it on the desk if you don't want it." And he put a donut on Scott's desk. Now by this time, Steve had begun to slow down a little. He just stayed on the floor between sets because it took too much effort to be getting up and down. You could
start to see a little perspiration coming out around his brow.

Dr. Christianson started down the third row. Now the students were beginning to get a little angry. Dr. Christianson asked Jenny, "Jenny, do you want a donut?"

Sternly, Jenny said, "No."

Then Dr. Christianson asked Steve, "Steve, would you do ten more push-ups so Jenny can have a donut that she doesn't want?"

Steve did ten....Jenny got a donut.

By now, a growing sense of uneasiness filled the room. The students were beginning to say "No" and there were all these uneaten donuts on the desks.

Steve also had to really put forth a lot of extra effort to get these pushups done for each donut. There began to be a small pool of sweat on the floor beneath his face, his arms and brow were beginning to get red because of the physical effort involved.

Dr. Christianson asked Robert, who was the most vocal unbeliever in the class, to watch Steve do each push up to make sure he did the full ten pushups in a set because he couldn't bear to watch all of Steve's work for all of those uneaten donuts. He sent Robert over to where Steve was so Robert could count the set and watch Steve closely.

Dr. Christianson started down the fourth row. During his class, however, some students from other classes had wandered in and sat down on the steps along the radiators that ran down the sides of the room.

When the professor realized this, he did a quick count and saw that now there were 34 students in the room. He started to worry if Steve would be able to make it.

Dr. Christianson went on to the next person and the next and the next. Near the end of that row, Steve was really having a rough time. He was taking a lot more time to complete each set.

Steve asked Dr. Christianson, "Do I have to make my nose touch on each one?"

Dr. Christianson thought for a moment, "Well, they're your pushups. You are in charge now. You can do them any way that you want." And Dr. Christianson went on.

A few moments later, Jason, a recent transfer student, came to the room and was about to come in when all the students yelled in one voice, "NO! Don't come in! Stay out!"

Jason didn't know what was going on. Steve picked up his head and said, "No, let him come."

Professor Christianson said, "You realize that if Jason comes in you will
have to do ten pushups for him?"
Steve said, "Yes, let him come in. Give him a donut"

Dr. Christianson said, "Okay, Steve, I'll let you get Jason's out of the way right now. Jason, do you want a donut?"

Jason, new to the room, hardly knew what was going on. "Yes," he said, “give me a donut."

"Steve, will you do ten push-ups so that Jason can have a donut?"

Steve did ten pushups very slowly and with great effort. Jason, bewildered, was handed a donut and sat down.

Dr. Christianson finished the fourth row, and then started on those visitors seated by the heaters. Steve's arms were now shaking with each push-up in a struggle to lift himself against the force of gravity. By this time sweat was profusely dropping off of his face, there was no sound except his heavy breathing; there was not a dry eye in the room.

The very last two students in the room were two young women, both cheerleaders, and very popular. Dr. Christianson went to Linda, the second to last, and asked, "Linda, do you want a donut?"

Linda said, very sadly, "No, thank you."

Professor Christianson quietly asked, "Steve, would you do ten push-ups so that Linda can have a donut she doesn't want?"

Grunting from the effort, Steve did ten very slow pushups for Linda.

Then Dr. Christianson turned to the last girl, Susan. "Susan, do you want a
donut?"

Susan, with tears flowing down her face, began to cry. "Dr. Christianson, why can't I help him?"

Dr. Christianson, with tears of his own, said, "No, Steve has to do it alone, I have given him this task and he is in charge of seeing that everyone has an opportunity for a donut whether they want it or not.

When I decided to have a party this last day of class, I looked at my grade book. Steve here is the only student with a perfect grade. Everyone else has failed a test, skipped class, or offered me inferior work. Steve told me that in football practice, when a player messes up he must do push-ups. I told Steve that none of you could come to my party
unless he paid the price by doing your push ups. He and I made a deal for your sakes."

"Steve, would you do ten push-ups so Susan can have a donut?"
As Steve very slowly finished his last pushup , with the understanding that he had accomplished all that was required of him, having done 350 pushups, his arms buckled beneath him and he fell to the floor.

Dr. Christianson turned to the room and said. "And so it was, that our Savior, Jesus Christ, on the cross, plead to the Father, 'into thy hands I commend my spirit.' With the understanding that He had done everything that was required of Him, He yielded up His life. And like some of those in this room, many of us leave the gift on the desk,
uneaten."

Two students helped Steve up off the floor and to a seat, physically exhausted, but wearing a thin smile.

"Well done, good and faithful servant," said the professor, adding "Not all sermons are preached in words."

Turning to his class, the professor said, "My wish is that you might understand and fully comprehend all the riches of grace and mercy that have been given to you through the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He spared not only His Begotten Son, but
gave Him up for us all, for the whole Church, now and forever. Whether or not we choose to accept His gift to us, the price has been paid."

Maybe I can go see some of these parks in NYC sometime. I'd like to do that.

I always eat something like this Lean Cuisine for lunch at work. I usually have chips of some sort (my favorite are the Gardetto's Mustard Pretzels*) and maybe some carrots, plus an apple (Pink Lady or Fuji, please. NO red delicious - I don't like them) for dessert. This is a particularly good one Lean Cuisine, that didn't have any detectable onions (yyyyeeeeeeech!) in it. Ingredient list said it had some, but I didn't notice them so they're as good as not there.

*If anyone from Gardetto's happens to read this, I'd really like to know why none of the grocery stores here sell the mustard pretzel mix any more. I have to buy them at gas stations for twice as much as they're worth, where I used to be able to get them at HEB. Help me out here, please!

I'm planning to read more of this. . . JLPicard.blogspot.com.

I sooooooooooooooooo love this. Man, the next time I have a spare 27.99 just hanging around in my pocket, I'm gonna buy me one of these. :)





This shirt is from


It says "shirt" in Japanese (Kanji).

Oh, haha, I just found this one too. These are some great shirts. This one says "Assassin."



I find it to be the ultimate in humorous irony to have the word assassin on the front of a burn-your-eyeballs-yellow t-shirt.

A guy is driving around Tennessee and he sees a sign in front of a house: "Talking Dog For Sale."

He rings the bell and the owner tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a Labrador retriever sitting there.

"You talk?" he asks.

"Yep," the Lab replies.

"So, what's your story?"

The Lab looks up and says, "Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA about my gift, and in no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running. But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals. I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired."

The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog.

"Ten dollars," the guy says.

"Ten dollars? This dog is amazing. Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?"

"Because he's a liar. He never did any of that shit."

With all that's going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man who wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin.

They put his left leg in....and then the trouble started.

You're groaning, but you know it's funny. :p

This may be useful someday…

I'm particularly fond of "Still waters run deep."

I have finally figured out what the heck this thing is. I knew it was a McD's Happy Meal toy, but I didn't know from what Movie.



As it turns out, it is from Sharkboy and Lavagirl, and it is Brendan's favorite "sky" which is what he calls any machine that flies* or that he imagines might fly**. I must find more of these. The belly part lights up red and he loves that!!!

* like airplanes, space ships, rockets
** like water bottle tops, toothbrush holders, wrenches

YouTube is great! You never know what you'll find on there.

Google has launched street-level maps on Google Maps for major Australian and New Zealand cities - finally.

This is pretty interesting to me. I didn't know that Google didn't develop it in-house!

Snip:
"Lars, his brother Jens, and two Aussies, Noel Gordon and Stephen Ma, developed the mapping service which they sold to Google in 2004 and which then became Google Maps."

I am sooooooo liking this! Click the button to see where recent visitors came from...

Geo Visitors Map

I'm going to put it on my sidebar too...It is rather slow today I think due to all the Digg traffic, but it should be better tomorrow.

I haven't written about Little Gym yet, and I really think that I should. It is such a big change for Brendan that it deserves some mention. Jen's been writing about it, so in the family history there is mention, but I should talk about it too.

For the most part, I enjoy the heck out of going to it. We go, we play (some), we go out to eat. What could be better? :) Well, it could be better if the littel rascal would actually participate.

The first time, and every subsequent time, he's refused to take part in the "sitting in a circle, doing something like singing, clapping, etc" that is done at the beginning of every 45 minute class. He screamed, cried, kicked, and all that for the first one and since then has been either refusing to go in while they are doing that or has played on the equipment instead. At least having him play on the equipment has him in the room, so I try to encourage that. It's kind of funny how he is so excited about going when we leave the house. He says "let's go a play!" and seems happy and excited about it. Maybe he is confused though; when we get there he pretty much refuses to go in the building and even holds on to the door frame to try to keep from going in. I think he thinks of "play" as going to McDonalds and he loves that. Maybe we can start saying we're going to Little Gym and see if at least he can be prepared a little ahead of time. I really want to get there 30 minutes ahead of time and work him into the idea of going in. Might try that next time.

So, once we're in the room after the circle sitting, he usually has fun. He has swung on the gymnast bars, walked on the balance beam while kicking my hand every step, plus jumped, rolled, climbed and so on. That's great, but any time any of the staff looks at him, he cries or hides behind me. One class he did well and was very friendly to one of the instructor girls, but not this most recent one. They all know his name, which I like, but he is so shy that he will hardly interact with them. It is a pain in the butt to take him there and know that he is going to so dislike it, but 1) the doctor said (and I agree) that he needs more adult interaction and 2) I paid for I already!!! So, we are going to continue taking him, but he must think we're torturing him or something. I know it is torturing me when he is the only one squalling when he's the oldest of about 12-15 little kids there.

Oh well, we go on...

Tonight, Jen is going to her La Leche League meeting and Bren and I are going to good old McDonalds. He'll have fun, and I'll read CGW, so that's good for both of us. :)

Gee this is a disorganized piece of writing...oh well, at least I wrote.

I just listened to an Inside the Net with Dan Cedarholm. I really enjoyed listening to him, and wanting to know more about CSS, I went to check out his own website. Good stuff. Inside the Net is so much fun to listen to. Amber and Leo really have chemistry.

Today is going to be a busy, busy, busy Saturday. First we're going to an event of some sort at Babies R Us, then we hit the library to pick up some things, then maybe we'll grab a bite. After that, we have the Smith kids birthday party at 3, and the Valverde Quinceanera at 7:30. That is going to be incredibly interesting, as I've never been to one. And finally, probably at 9pm, we'll come back home. Whew. Lots of running around today. Tomorrow I do yard work and I'll get some sun, which will be good.

Neither have I, but this guy did. He discovered it, actually. I'm talking about Dr Albert Hoffman, whose first trip is dramatized here by David Normal. Weird stuff via BoingBoing.

MIT students need to pass one requirement before starting their $100k+ jobs... The test is easy for most, but impossible for some...swim 4 laps in the pool without stopping.

"For the fourth [lap], she rolled onto her back and finished. She touched the edge of the pool breathing heavily and grinning broadly. ''The hardest test I've ever taken at MIT," she said. Was it worth it? ''Not really," shesaid. She has no plans to swim again."

Finally, a student who will be honest even when in the national spotlight. Ya gotta love that!

I'm not a cultural anthropologist, but they don't look very mexican to me...



This is from a Pilsbury ad that I got in my email. Let's see what we can do about that...

Aha! Now they do! Well, not really...

McDungleBurger is planning to revamp its look according to this article that I just read. I like the new look, but I don't think it is practical. Most McDonald's that I go in are DIRTY and this new thing doesn't look easy to keep clean. The upholstered couches and chairs are going to get filthy and nasty, I think. It looks like a Starbuck's designer got hired to do this because he was the CEO's daughter's boyfriend or something. Hehe. I don't think it will work, but maybe it will.

I would like to use the WiFi, but the people at both locations that I have asked about it (and I know both locations have it) don't know shit about it. Not even the managers. Morons.

Let's just wait and see...

Check out the pictures...

Woo hoo! I just made 20 bucks for doing an IT survey for GCR's IT Decision Maker Panel. Yay!!!! It's a $20 Amazon certificate. I'm sure I can spend that.

I sure miss doing surveys for Galloway Research. They always had good stuff. Wish they'd call me again...I guess I'll sign up again. Since I moved, I haven't heard from them, even thought I called and updated my info.

Check out this picture of a lady. You have to click on it to get the full effect. I had a good laugh from this one...

He has many interesting pictures on his blog.

I'm just doing a survey for Knowledge Networks. One of the questions that they're asking is "Has a medical doctor ever diagnosed anyone in your household with Alzheimer's Disease?" and the answer that I so, so, so wish I could give is "Not that I remember!" :)

Unfortunately, it is just a yes/no question. Darn.

We had a hella rain during the wee hours of the morning today. It was nice laying in bed listening to it. It's very cool outside. 60 degrees is ever so pleasant at this time of year here. Today is going to be a nice lazy day. We don't really have any plans. Our friend Dobie is over last night and today. We watched thebroken episode 1 and Diggnation ep 43 last night and had a few laughs. That was fun. I don't watch many video podcasts like that, but I have had the ep of thebroken for a while just waiting for a chance to watch it. I want to watch the next episode of CAC, but it isn't out on iTunes yet. Hmmm.

It's Free Comic Book day at last. That's good. I am going to go get something and maybe buy one or two today. That'll be fun.

My dear, dear friend Sister Catherine Walker passed away this morning at 6:10am. According to the coordinator of care in the retirement home, Sr Ramona, she went in peace. God bless her. I loved her and I'll miss her, the stubborn old cuss. :~)

I'm again excited about Free Comic Book Day this year. I missed it last year, but not this time!!!

Saturday, May 6th!

Go get yourself one!

A homemade sandwich that Jen just made was really awesome!!! If you've never had a good ole New Orleans Muff, I highly recommend you try this. If you don't want to make it at home, you can get one that is nearly this good at Jason's Deli. From her blog:

DH and I made the olive relish for muffaletta sandwiches last night. Here is what we used based on several recipes I found on the net. I'll post about how it was after we try it. It has to marinate for at least 24 hours. We'll probably eat some for dinner tomorrow night.

Muffalettas
Makes 4 quartered sandwiches

1/2 lb total of good ham, genoa salami and hard salami
1/2 lb of good cheese- havarti, provolone and/or mozzarella
1 1/2 lb round loaf italian bread
1 c olive relish (below)

Slice bread into top and bottom pieces. Warm bread for 3 minutes in 350 degree oven. Top each half with 1/2 c of olive relish, meats and cheeses. Heat til warmed through and cheese is melted.

Olive Relish

3.5 oz pouch green olives with pimientos, drained & minced
3.8 oz can sliced black olives, drained & minced
16 oz jar Mezzetta Italian Giardiniera (pickled veggies w/ cauliflower), drained & minced
1/4 c pepperoncinis, minced
1/2 c roasted red/yellow peppers, minced
2 T minced garlic
1 t celery seed
1 t oregano
1 pinch black pepper
1/3 c red wine vinegar
1/3 c canola + olive oil (you may want more oil)

Mix everything together in a bowl and allow to marinate for 24 hours.

And here's her follow-up post...good work, babe!
