…seldom hurts anyone.

Ok, so I’ve succumbed to the seduction that is and made some product. Here are some of the shirts I made. I think they’re fun. 🙂


As it is M0ther’s Day, I wanted to post a tribute to all Moms. I am delighted that I found one from Mr. T, as I believe noone loves his mother more than Mr. T loves his.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you Moms out there! (Especially mine :))

Zombie Warning

I’m probably way behind on this news, but I just heard that someone hacked a road advisory sign to say “Warning! Zombies Ahead!” I thought it was good enough to pass along.

It’s Squirrel Appreciation Day!!

Bless your neighborhood tree-dwelling rodents with some nuts or fruit!!

I, myself, will be making a sign and Matt will drive his car in the parade.

Proof this is a real holiday:
Great squirrel pictures!

About that Dream Job…

I know everyone’s read the story about Australia offering the “best job in the world.”
You get paid $104,000 to sit on an island for 6 months as the caretaker.  Oh, and you have to blog about it. All together, the workload is an estimated 12 hours each month.
Unemployed people across the planet are very excited at this point. 🙂

Having been unemployed before, I have a pretty good feeling of how I would feel after having that job for about, oh, 2 weeks. I’d be a hopeless candidate as I’m very prone to stir-craziness, and I dislike sand.

Mostly, I figure it would play out pretty closely to the 7 stages of Grief:

Phase 1: Shock or disbelief: This is unbelievable! I’m getting paid to tan! Wow!
Phase 2: Denial & Paranoia: No way, there’s gotta be some catch to this…I bet this is survivor. I hope that naked guy isn’t here…
Phase 3: Anger: This is so boring!! I’m wasting my life!! I hate Australia!
Phase 4: Bargaining: I’d do anything to get off this island!! I feel like Gilligan without the coconut radio.
Phase 5: Guilt: This is so my own fault. Why did I do this to myself? I miss the squirrels…
Phase 6: Depression: I’m marooned! Doomed! They didn’t even give me my pistol with the 1 bullet in it!
Phase 7: Acceptance and/or Hope: Hey, look! A Tiki Bar!

Yes, it’s that time of year: chestnuts roast on open fires, visions of sugar plums dance in heads, and otherwise sane people pilfer Baby Jesuses from local mangers. 

To me, this is just very funny.

When you need a GPS system to keep track of your Lord and Savior, the culture has taken a turn. See the story below. Comments are welcome.

December 9th, 2008.

On this date came the blonde keyboard.

What makes this keyboard different from any other keyboard?

Well, foremost, it is Barbie™ pink.

It also is equipped with special peroxide-friendly features, such as:

1) The ANY key!
2) The backspace key is now the “OOPS!” key!
3) USELESS keys are now properly labeled.
