  • It, ladies and gentlemen, is war. #

  • Sad that I'm happy to only pay $3.60 a gallon. #
  • Fat Tire is the beeriest beer that ever beered. #
  • Love having a fun new camera. #
  • Finally got Alfred installed on my work computer. Now I feel much less handicapped. #
  • Woot! All my orders are en route to my house. I'm going to spend every minute of this week geeking out to Unix and Nixon. #
  • Things I dig: Unix. Nixon. The opposite sex. Experience points. I have a thing for the letter X, apparently. X-mas > Christmas? I think so! #

  • I'm about ready to bite the bullet and buy Reeder for Mac. Wish I knew a timeline for a NNW update. #
  • I'm getting hooked on Duck Duck Go. #
  • Being at home during the summer makes me constantly contemplate how I'd gut my house. #
  • "No more. We'll save the rest for later." "No! That's not the deal!" #
  • Yup, Reeder purchased. Couldn't be avoided. #
  • "Rock-a-bye baby, on the tree trunk. There was a little bug on our house…" #
  • A special song to go to bed: "Why oh why oh why oh why oh why…" #
  • I'm still working toward my ultimate goal: buying a major league ballpark and charging a max of 20 bucks a ticket. #
  • W00T! I think I've earned a glass of wine. #
  • "Why did you open the curtains?" "'Cause I like to see the world." #
  • My wife surprised me with Fat Tire tonight. Can life get better? I submit that it cannot! #
  • I want this epitaph: #
  • The red in me is wine,
    The woman next to me is fine;
    I'm going to bed, so the night is thine. #
  • Looks like another big storm will bypass us. No hail damage to pay for our siding once again =/ #
  • "I want a horsey and a lion and the sparkliest sword ever in the world." #
