Truck-o-rama (10/09/2018)

Yup... but lets talk about monthly payments. If we extend your loan term to 80-gagillion months, we can reduce a 32k truck payment to a 20k truck payment*.

* Of course the interest will have you paying over 60K, but we won't mention that.

Aka: When support can't figure it out, it comes up to me, and then if I can't figure it out.... I talk to the developers so they don't have to talk to the dirty support people.

03-12-2012 - Gather round the fire

The simple answer is: Why do you have a fireplace in California? I know it is Sac, so not like those southern reaches, but still. Does it drop below 40 degrees?

That said. I support the next to the kitchen position. Dean/Dean 2012!

7/10 - Down with the Sickness

Repeat after me.

Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur.
Happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr purr purr.

Repeat as necessary.

Honestly, sick babies suck. Mine got sniffles a few times and it is challenging to say the least until they are over a year old, and even then, if they get a fever...uhg.

Re: 04/11/12 20 years later

Full-scale? They do realize that the Enterprise is 305 meters long (that's a freaking quarter mile for those who don't speak metric)?! It would to need a lot of external support braces to hold up those warp engines and saucer on Earth's surface. Even if they built it out of aluminum it would still ...

4-3-2012 The Sleeper Must Awaken

I got lucky with my boy, as he has slept well at night ever since he was born. My friends have not been so lucky. Their girl hasn't kept a regular sleep schedule yet. Oh well, they are only 2 months in so far.

Re: 03-01-2012 Don't make Greg destroy you

While the actual term is Duct Tape, there is a product called "Duck Tape" which is a variant of Duct Tape, which is produced in many different colours*. Duck Tape is a company though, not a form of tape.

* I am Canadian, so I spell it the proper way.

3/1/2012 - The Animal Train

Oh god. As soon as I saw the first part of the song I KNEW which one it was. My kid has the same one. Given by the grandparents. The train scared him the first time it moved on its own, but other than that.... over and over and over... What is worse is when he finds the switch for the volume. Sudden...

16/02/2012 - Darn kids!

Yeah... some days it hits me that I'm 30, have a kid, and the 80s/90s aren't relevant to today's youth. I was never into high-tops, but they are infinitely better than skate shoes (Kids don't lace them up, and they are super wide and stuffed). It disturbs me that the music from the 80s/90s is now co...
