I was at a friend's house tonight.

She has a little boy around 18 months old who is really cool. We drew stuff on some paper, and played with a stuffed crab and monkey. We went "hunting bears." He was delighted to discover the wonder that is the "LOLCat".

As long as you give kids your undivided attention, they love you. It's kind of like cats, except cats only live for about 15 years. Kids go away (hopefully) in about 18.

Which will still make me pretty darn old if I ever steal my own kid.

A lot of my friends don't have blogs. I tell them they should start them because you can say anything and still have plausible deniability, but they still don't want to start blogging.

They say a lot of the reason is because we already work on computers all day, an escape is nice. I say "poppycock!", mainly because the word sounds funny. It's laziness on their part, sure as my posting here once every 8 months is laziness on mine.

So being the nice friend I am, I've started to blog for them.  I sign up for an account for them, and blog as if I was channelling their spirit from another plane of existance.

Now since I'm not with these people 24/7, I do have to make up a lot of stuff for them to whine about.  But that is what we had creative writing classes for back in the days when we actually went to school.

Not wanting to limit this to only friends, I've even started a blog for John McCain.  I figure he's really busy and all, so I consider it like a political donation.  I anxiously await his thanks.  Maybe he'll send me an autographed picture or something.  That would be sweet.

Hey kids, imagine the fanciful worlds that you can discover in an old abandoned refrigerator!

“No lions and witches in wardrobes,” my stepdad always used to say. “You need to explore in the unexpected places!”


Anyhoo, just trying to keep my mad "MSPaint" skills from totally dulling.

And the picture was "borrowed", and not mine... here's the original... http://flickr.com/photos/jarednixon/109489762/in/photostream/

I'm trying to make the decision tonight between going to sleep early or having some margeritas with some people I know. I did a lot of yard and housework today, so I'm leaning towards sleep.

Ten years ago I wouldn't have thought twice about going out. On a "school night" even. Maybe even five years ago.

But I probably would have tried to shirk some of the work back then. That way I'd be in better condition to go party.

One of my job functions is figuring out what people are looking at on the Internet while on the clock. Quite often, porn is the favorite subject (or even worse, MySpace.)

You'd think it'd mostly be boobs or something (I'm a fan of boobs myself) but no. Apparently many people I work with are into.....

Still alive, not to worry.

Even if my comic update schedule is beyond tattered.

Hoping to fix it very soon, but we'll have to see.

I don't know if I just consider my life just a series of the same events happening again and again (work, school repeat) or that the other stuff I do just doesn't merit mention, but I never seem to use this thing.

But since I've last posted, I've learned:

-Don't try to patch a roof with tar on a windy day.
-If you DO try this, make sure you move the car (in case the ladder blows over)
-Also, make sure you're wearing "junk" clothes, including shoes
-Tar is hard to get off of skin, especially when embedded in arm hair
-Tar can be removed from a washing machine easily if you wipe it down with gasoline

Like all great thinkers, I feel the best way to learn things is the hard way. Well, I don't actually think that, it just seems to come that way.

The squirrel revoution continues...


When will people finally realize that this is all part of the plan for squirrel tyranny? When you hear that grunting sound a squirrel makes as it runs up to attack you, you'll believe that the war of 1000 years has truly begun!

At least, if you don't have some peanuts or something.

Tonight is the first night of my last semester of school. At least until the next one.

Not ever getting around to earning a bachelor's degree actually kind of sucks. Especially now that I want one, and am still years away from realistically getting it.

See kids, Uncle Warren thought it would be fun to goof off in college during my late teens/early twenties. And while it was fun figuring out wonderful skills like making flour explode; it may have been more beneficial to do this in my classes, instead of for my roommates.

It wasn't all goofing off, though. I also had to earn a "living" doing low-paying retail.

But I goofed off there, too. Sometimes with fire.

Once again we turn to the world of squirrels. Here's a little news clip I found today...
Lawsuit: Shopping Center Aided Attacking Squirrel

As someone who went to Penn State and fed the squirrels (and had one run up me because I was out of peanuts) I heartily endorse suing anyone out of existance who helps these squirrels with their nefarious "master plan."
