It’s the Eqivalent of My Parents Saying “Groovy”

This morning in the shower as I was teaching Ian to properly wash his armpits (well, somebody has to teach kids these things) I actually used the phrase “and wave ’em like you just don’t care”. It is very possible that I am the least cool person who ever lived.

If You Just Can’t Get Enough of Me

Look for me starting this weekend as I start my new job over at Strollerderby. I’ll be posting over there as soon as I learn how to insert pictures into my posts. So it might be a while. I’m no computer scientist. Go over there anyway. It’s a cool place.

And So It Begins

Claudia has started blaming her farts on Ian. Even when he isn’t in the room. I wonder if my Dad taught her that?

Randomness Part 60

Check out my new favorite bumper sticker. I stole this from The Zero Boss. Looky Daddy feels my pain. In my quest for all things free, I got a Carpet Swiffer. It is actually pretty cool. It won’t replace the vacuum cleaner, but it is nice for touch up work while the kids are sleeping. […]

Just Answer the Question, Yes or No

Does it make me a dork if I really want a subscription to Wine Spectator?

Stranger than Strange Fiction

I’m reading a Tom Robbins book. For any of you that have read anything by Robbins you may have noticed that his work is somewhat odd. You would never call him a realist. In fact, in the book I am reading now one of the main characters is a dirty sock. My real life is […]

In Case I Don’t Get a Chance to Talk to You Tomorrow

Have yourself a merry (little) Christmas. It’s been a while since I’ve been this excited on Christmas Eve, but I’m pretty sure that this year the kids “get it”. Now, I am going to drink some (more) eggnog.

The Saga of the Traveling Hat

By now you all know that my donut and mimosa playdate with Corinne and Beth was cancelled due to various maladies. Thankfully, Claudia does not have bronchitis. She just has a really mean upper respiratory thing that makes her cough like she’s been smoking for years. It also makes her mean like she just quit […]

Good News/Bad News

The good news is that I now have my pediatrician’s phone number memorized. The bad news is that I think Claudia might have bronchitis. The other bad news is that I don’t think we’ll be able to participate in the playdate that prompted the first question in this post. The other good news is that […]

Late to the Party

I don’t mean to sound like an infomercial, but why didn’t anyone tell me how cool Netflix was? Or did you and I just wasn’t listening? Either way, my friend Melissa got me a gift subscription for my birthday and I got three movies in the mail today. So tonight instead of doing laundry, paying […]

Claudia Wishes You All a Happy Holiday

Claudia sings Jingle Bells. Ian does not.

Product Placement

I cannot believe you people didn’t understand how cool this Hello Kitty guitar is. Now I feel like I need to explain myself. Just look at it. It is so girly and stupid that it is punk rock. What is more asshole than a pink Hello Kitty Guitar? Originally Gabe showed this to me as […]
