Vacuum Attire

This is what my hot wife wears to vacuum the house. Nice 2 1/2 inch heels. Goes ever so nicely with the sweats.

How Many Holes?

I really enjoy living in Colorado. Most of the things we deal with here are great. Some are not so great. A few are downright annoying. Let's focus on the latter tonight. Last night, at their insistence, I took the kids for the first bike ride of the season. We rode on pathways over to the 'tree park' and then road dirt roads over to another neighborhood. Nothing too crazy--except my inability to get the clipless pedal thing, so I wound up falling twice more to the laughs of my children; no respect!

As we got back home from our 3 or 4 mile jaunt (I don't have my cycling computer hooked up yet on the new bike), I could tell I was getting a flat (this is the first real ride I've taken on this bike, mind you.) That yielded some not-so-pleasant grumbling on my part because I knew what was coming next. The goatheads were out of control! If you haven't spent time in CO, you likely aren't familiar with these insidious little torture tools. We should pack…

Funny: New STD On The Rampage

The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of this old disease. The disease is called Gonorrhea Lectim. It's pronounced "Gonna re-elect 'em."

The disease is contracted through dangerous and high risk behavior involving putting your cranium up your rectum. Many victims contracted it in 2008 and many more in 2009...but now most people, after having been infected for the past 1-2 years, are starting to realize how destructive this sickness is.

It's sad because Gonorrhea Lectim is easily cured with a new drug just coming on the market called Votemout, (proncounced "Vote 'em out"). You take the first dose in 2010 and the second dose in 2012 and simply don't engage in such behavior again; otherwise, it could become permanent and eventually wipe out all life as we know it.

Several states are already on top of this, like Virginia and New Jersey, and apparently now Massachusetts, with many more seeing the wr…

Yes, I Really Am That Special

Hi, I'm back! I've struggled with time or content for some time now, but I think I finally have a good post tonight. For a long time, our home alarm system has been unused because I didn't have it monitored. When we first installed it ourselves years ago, I had it go to my pager whenever it would go off, and my insurance company agreed that it was "monitored" and gave me the homeowners-insurance discount. Cool. Didn't have to pay the $30/month to ADT or anything. But then I joined the 21st century and got rid of my pager, and I really didn't want it calling my cell phone because it would just look like a call from home; no big deal. So we didn't arm it for a long time.

Recently, I got to thinking about getting rid of my landline, or at least moving it to VOIP to get cheaper long distance, but I wasn't comfortable doing that because the alarm needed a line to call on in case of emergency. So I started looking around for newer technologies, a…
