A public display of the sentance of the day

"Rodent drinking contests!"

Wow. Voles natures drunk, though I would say second only to bees.

and now a quote from the friend who sent me the link
5:09:~ ye old fortran$ yeah
5:10:~ ye old fortran$ i cant help but think it would be awesome to have a pet vole now
5:10:~ ye old fortran$ like a pet drinking buddy
5:11:~ ye old fortran$ i guess you already have molly lol

Molly is one of my cats. Shes a drinker, a beer drinker. She started out on wine... when she was a kitten she got curious and, I as a bad father/owner, I gave her a capfull... she did get drunk. Proper drunk, fell asleep and then had a hangover. You know whats funny and sad? A hungover kitten.

Now as a 12lb bag of bitch shes a proper drunk. She knocks over any open beer bottle and drinks it off the floor... I found this out while peeing and hearing the bottle hit the ground only to find my cat standing in the puddle lapping away. Again, drunkeness and hangovertude to follow. But this time she knew she liked it, began to cuddle, fell asleep wokeup about a halfhour later pissed off and attacked me. I didnt move and really did nothing but stroke her belly...

Smarmy is the word to describe a drunk cat.

The Progenitor Ship looms...

Well again I decided to take a break from posting partially for personal sanity reasons and partially lack of time! Its been an extremely busy few months. Bradley classes for baby arrival sans intervention or coercion. Preparing in nearly every sense of the word. Spiritually, metaphysically, physically, staging and lighting. Its a very strange feeling going through such an all consuming process. Ive never been in pretty much any setting that requires more coordination of faculties.

So yeah. It's a happening. Baby gifts arriving. Wife expanding. Hair thinning.

A Brave new World or How I set up the Bomb

Well it's bee an interesting few intervening months. Christmas happened. Then the New Year had the audacity to rear it's head. Body of a lion and all that. But between my last post and thanksgiving I spent some time in Austin. And I gotta say the hype is well deserved. I went and fully intended to "blog" my experiences. Upon arrival I saw the city met some people and decided I would take a break from blogging all together. It's weird but I did have some method. I was having such a good time that I thought my posts would have a rose tint. So I decided to wait a week after getting home to write about my experience, as to remove some of the bloom. But it didn't work. Then that week led to a few more. Still it remained, and my wife was late. You know, the "we gotta talk" late. So I suddenly had something even MORE consuming than my infatuation with Austin. So again I decided to wait. Then Christmas happened etc etc...

So here we are, the week after tax day, five months pregnant, poor and happy. I'm stressed about money. But happy!

I just recently got an iPhone. Its pretty sweet for a variety of reasons, maybe the most hyped, talked about, and coveted piece of tech Ive ever owned. I'm not much of a gadget junkie. In general I'm pretty indifferent to the swaying affect stuff like this has over my friends. But when my work provided blackberry started to show its age I decided to request an phone. So far its been pretty fun. Really just having a camera-phone again is nice but there are so many benefits I didn't realize. The exchange support alone is worth the price of admission. I'm not a huge fan of touch screen interfaces in general but I can put up with the bs touch keyboard for the large screen. Anyways I don't want to review the iPhone, I just want to mention that I'm more pleased than I thought I would be. And now that Ive "jail broken" my buddy, I think I'm more pleased.

While this isnt a netbook, I think now that Ive used it, it falls squarely into IPR domain.

I just started a "new" blog to try out Wordpress. This post is just duplicated there for now but Im really testing out their interface for possibly moving over there.

Only the most diabolical Haters...

So I cant be the only person who cant stand, Mad Men, Twilight, Weeds, Hung, Sopranos, entourage, 99% of anything celebrity related, most "reality" TV, etc... seriously this must not be my time. I feel like a hater because all these shows that are "great" I think "suck". And the good shows that I like keep getting killed off. Heroes was strong, now its weak. Lost was strong, then weak, and Im not sure where the hell its stands now. Monk is in its final season, and Burn Notice feels like its winding down... Honestly Im surprised that Fringe, 30 Rock, and Parks & Rec. are still on the air. Im just glad they are back this season, and god bless us, Ultimate fighter is back on.

For your edification.

Two toned the fuck down.

Well its been a month since I picked up my new bike. I love riding it around its easy and honestly the most fun Ive had with a vehicle in a while. But like any fucking thing else I do I cant leave well enough alone. I had to do something because the veiled S&M barbed wire theme was lame as fuck. So I added some white panels to break up the combo. I think it looks cool personally and I really like the sorta retro feel of the white panels. At first I really was begining to regret not getting the full white version of this bike, but now I really like the idea of making it my own. I dont really *want* a monochromatic bike, I like the contrast. Honestly if I had got the white one I would have replaced something on that to. Next trick is to actually rid my life of the "BOLD NEW GRAPHICS". Try to replace them with something a little more factory works team a little less X-treme Team.
