Quiet for so long...

Sorry I have failed you, my faithful reader. I am taking requests. What shall I write about? Fiction? Free-verse poetry? Political ramblings? Funky fresh dance move diagrams? Lemme hear it.

Thoughts and stuff

  • Why did they have to make morning so early?
  • A fancy new bed may be the best money you'll ever spend. Although new tube socks are a close second. The first time you put them on, when they're all fuzzy and fresh? I love that.
  • I miss my house a lot less than I thought I would. I guess waking up in love will do that to a guy.
  • Good lord, I've gone Hallmark. I'm so sorry.
  • My favorite dumb joke: What's brown and sticky? Answer later.
  • I've put 15,000 miles on my new car in about 9 months. Luckily gas is really affordable.
  • Party at my buddy's lake house this weekend. Boating, drinking and cards. I hope to win at 2 out of those 3.
  • Facebook is not like crack. But it is reasonably entertaining and mildly addictive. Try it! All the cool kids with free time are doing it!
  • Answer: A stick.
  • There are probably 100 music stations on XM and WFPK (91.9 Louisville) is still better than all of 'em.
  • Dinner last night was fresh salmon on the grill, topped with a round of goat cheese and cherry tomatoes. Collard greens on the side. Better than Sonic.
  • My brother and his family have moved to Indy from Omaha. I am excited to have them so close - I hardly ever see those guys. My girls are about exactly the same age as his boys. So there's that.
  • 2 weeks or so from the start of Fantasy Football. I have made the playoffs (and thus profited) every year in the league, but newly-found parental responsibilities might limit my R&D time. But probably not.
  • On the plus side, Charmed has made it her vow to figure out football this year. So I'll have to spend a lot of time explaining it to her.
  • That is all.

The walk-through...

is scheduled for 4:15 today. Please, please, PLEASE, buyer of my house, don't ask me to throw out that blue recliner in the attic, or all of those paint cans in the basement.

Because I am tired, and busy the rest of the week (we close on Friday), and I really don't want to find a home for 17 half-empty paint cans.

Thank you for your consideration.

Probably. The inspection was yesterday and I'm just waiting to hear the results. All I have heard so far are some elctrical concerns which shouldn't be too big a deal. I hope.

The Song Chart Pool

I found this on Flickr...users have created assorted charts and graphs to represent popular songs. Some of them are really clever:

It's best if you watch it as a slide show.

Don't you hate...

when you take one of those quizzes, then you get a final score, but they don't tell you if the score is good or bad or how you rank? What's up wit that?

Anywho, I got a 106.

Risky Business

This lad reminds me of a young Dunnski. If I had been cool. And rebellious. And Australian.

Hola amigos

I know it's been a long time since I rapped at ya...but with the holidays and such my life's been a blur.

So what's been going on...I had a fantastic Christmas - lots of goodies, especially in the food preparatory milieu. In addition to the smoker mentioned below, I own a fancy new slow cooker with a built in probe, which sounds dirty but really isn't. Say you want to cook a hunk of meat to 175 degrees. Go ahead, say it. You just program that in the little probe dealie, then the slow cooker will STOP COOKING when the meat gets to that temp, and just rest on warm until you're ready to grub. Pretty cool, huh? I also got a new pressure cooker, which I'm excited to try out, but it seemed it was dinged during shipping, so we'll have to send it back and try another one. So now I can cook really slow or really fast. Which is nice.

I also got myself some new wheels for Christmas. Not quite as cool as my old ride, but there's something to be said for a warranty and reliability. Plus, it's my first brand new car! Yay!

I know many of my readers feel bad about forgetting my birthday, but it's not too late to send cards and gifts. I won't my mind a bit.

The big family news is that my step-sister is getting remarried this summer. Charmed and I will probably pack up the girls and head to Iowa for the festivities. Looks like another mini-van rental is in Dunnski's future.

That's it for now. A peaceful new year to all y'all.
