Merry New Year!

Ah the time has come to look back on our lives this past year in retrospect and think of ways to improve upon our performance in the coming year. I for one see so many things that I am at a loss as to where I should start (yes, updating my blog more often is one of them 😛 ). See you all next year!


I am SUCH a slacker!!

Ok, I just can’t let my blog go over a year without a post. I just cant! I have to apologize to anyone who has been waiting for me to update my blog. I suck at these! I guess I just don’t have that much to say about myself. It has been a busy year full of ups and downs. Hopefully we will have an even better year in 2009. I will post more often hopefully 😀

until then…
here is a random picture…

X-Treme Randomness

… I am sitting on my bed at 11:28 on a Sunday night, everyone else in the house is sleeping (which is saying alot) browsing aimlessly through the web like there was a good reason or a purpose other that just to do it.  My cell phone is beeping because I just got off of an hour long support call and I have the lyrics to an Ani DiFranco song running round and round in my head.  Random thoughts are floating around intermingled with the lyrics… things like:

  • What was I in the middle of at work when I left on friday?
  • I have to wake up early to go to  Les Schwab to get my valve replaced on my van tire
  • I really need to plug in my laptop before the battery dies.
  • …and my cell phone too so it will stop beeping at me!
  • I want to go pick out the parts to my new computer.
  • I can pick out the parts whenever I want
  • … there is no point to picking out parts because I cannot afford them
  • I only have 17% free battery space
  • what are they going to build in the lot between lonestar steakhouse and the range rover dealership?
  • and about a million other things even more strange and random than that!
  • ….


“I open a fire-door to four lips, none of which were mine…kissing
tighten my belt around my hips… where your hands were missing
stepped out into the cold, collar high into the slate gray sky
the air was smoking the streets were dry
..and I wasn’t joking when I said goodbye!”

More Programming humor nobody gets…

Programming is 10% science, 25% ingenuity and 65% getting the ingenuity to work with the science.
We don’t really understand it, so we’ll give it to the programmers.
A computer scientist is someone who fixes things that aren’t broken.

Intermediate Users: People who don’t know how to fix their computer after pressing a key that broke it.
Expert Users: People who break other people’s computers.
Hardware: The parts of a computer system that can be kicked.
And finally, my new favorite:
“If at first you don’t succeed, you must be a programmer.”

Oh dear… good advise!?!

So incase you have not read my lovely Meadows blog, She and I stumbled upon a web site called and then we laughed… alot… to the point of belly laughs and little girl giggles. I highly recommend you give it a visit.

This also has made for an interesting conversation regarding the popularity of clothes and trinkets that have chinese and japanese writing on them. how do we know that the shirt we are wearing acutally says “peace” and not “This idiot paid way too much for this shirt” ? kinda makes you think…

I found this on the wayward weblog. pretty funny stuff (if you are a total geek like me anyway.
This is an interesting take on programming language. This new language is called the YODA programming language, I think you can all figure it out from there.

Instead of the cryptic c-like syntax below:



public void Main(string[] args) {

   Console.WriteLine(“Hello World”);




We will now have eloquent YODA-like syntax:



(args of string many are they) Main is what they seek yet return they do not.


Brace you must

     Written it is, the Console. “Hello World”



so at this point, if you are a geek (or a nerd) you are laughing or a least grinning however if you are not you are just confused and wondering who allowed such an idiot to have a blog and possibly even thinking that they should start regulating who is allowed ownership of a blog.
Either way, I don’t care because I nearly fell out of my cushy chair after reading it on my second 20″ widescreen.


So maybe you are all sick of this, but then again maybe you are all nonexistent and nobody actually reads these and I am simply pandering to the collective void… hmm

These pictures were taken once again by my wonderful sister Ashley
I just had to post them because it is just so amazing to me.

This is taken the day Alton was due. (he was 3 weeks early)

And this one is one if my favorites. Just Alton cuddling with Meadow

I love the freckles and the hair.
