I love being on hold with Dell

I really do. I am not lying. They just thanked me for waiting for the 5th time. I am so happy.

A laborious Labor Day weekend

Despite the spirit of relaxation assumed on Labor Day weekend I spent the hottest parts of the day, not drinking beer in a lawn chair as I should have, but hacking away at my front lawn. I will admit though, it looks much better and will only keep improving as we continue the transformation. It was time well spent. Very sweaty time. I also experienced cathartic joy in demolishing both the horrid thorn bushes in the front and a portion of my dead brown grass. Maybe the remaining grass will get the hint and start GROWING!

Half Day

Today I am having sushi for lunch. Later I might go to Toys R' Us. These are the things that bring me joy in life.

WOXY is Sexy

Woo! It only took 2 days of obsessive searching and one potentially dangerous mind meld with my wife and I've GOT IT!. WOXY is the station I'd been looking for. I can finally rest now. Also, WOXY is pretty damn cool. I don't like everyting they play, but its better background music then anything on the Milwaukee airwaves and I've already discovered two bands I'd never heard of. More on that later, for now I will bask in the relaxing yet small interval between obsessions.

My Brain Sucks

I don't know why my brain decided this was important but for some reason I am obsessed with finding the old internet radio I listened to 2 years ago. I won't be able to concentrate till I figure it out. Thanks a lot brain.

Où est la piscine?

Oh God, oh God, oh God. . . We are going to NOAH'S ARK tomorrow! Its been 2 years since we went. I am so excited I could wet my pants. Thankfully at the park I can do that and not worry about anyone noticing. Sleeping tonight is not going to happen; its like the night before Christmas as I toss and turn thinking about all the presents. Only this time I dream about being wet all day and getting sunscorched. We might actually get to ride on Black Anaconda this year. AHHHHHH! I CAN'T WAIT!!

Happy Birthday Mira!

Tomorrow is my baby's birthday. I grapple with the idea that she is already 1 year old. I seem to exist in a time warp all of a sudden where from week to week and month to month the passage of time dilates from fast to fastest (it keeps skipping faster) so that in the end I have traveled a year without being aware of half of it. Granted all these times are great so I don't have much to complain about. Hopefully I won't be a lazy ass and actually post pictures on Flickr which I haven't done since the beginning of summer. Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIRA!!!!
