    I’ve noticed a funny hair pattern also… it gets cut, looks good for a while, then somewhat suddenly starts to look like it needs a cut, but if it doesn’t get cut it looks pretty good for a while again, then all of a sudden it looks terrible and needs cut right away. Sorry to add to your obsession Ursus.

    When my boy was in the 4th grade he started singing that ditty. I suggested he use "Buck". He was embarrassed. I am bad.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Good Morning.

    I picked up Christmas presents for my mom last night.

    I was off yesterday. Whenever I am off for a day I always cringe when I walk back into my cube because I hate seeing the light flashing on my phone saying I have voicemails (probably a holdover from when I was a social worker and the voicemails were never happy messages). I was happy to see that the light was not blinking today. No fires to put out. Of course, I do have about 75 emails to get back to...

    Man, do I know that drill.. My name was heavily Anglicized when we immigrated, but we kept the original pronounication. I'm used to people not being able to spell it, but kids shortened it then proceeded mock me endlessly about it. Needless to say that's were I develeoped my dry, acid wit and sharp tongue.

    I got teased about my last name as a kid, and now my oldest daughter is experiencing it. I told her the only thing she can do is laugh with them, or when she turns 18 she can change her name.

    Thanks to my wife's new-found obsession with Pinterest, I have not been allowed to throw out or recycle any glass jars for a few months now. This morning, I went to get something out of a cabinet in the garage and found that there must be about 60 emptied and cleaned spaghetti sauce, pickle, and jelly jars. I have only seen her use about 3 or 4 jars for any projects since she started saving them.

    Thats okay. My wife has a fetish about saving boxes because we might need one to mail something in. We mail stuff occassionally, like for birthdays and Christmas.

    A GIANT I told you so is being sent over to Fiscal today.

    For as nitpicky as they have been on some issues (ummm 45 cents on a $1600 bill?) they sure can't seem to read loan's terms of agreement before submitting a draw down request. Told them what they were asking for is not an allowable expense last week.

    I wish I couldn't relate... but unfortunately my house is full of bottles that have been painted, or have been glued with salt and other crap....

    I love crafts as much as the next guy......but I am at the end of my rope with this junk. Add that to the fact that I can buy a factory made, nice piece of junk for $3 at Hobby Lobby, and I do not see the point...

    I have a north facing wooden porch, 8 steps up from the sidewalk. Freezes like a giant ice cube. We got some snow, everybody walked all over the steps before I could shovel, frozen solid. Last night after work I was hurrying around to get some stuff done (put up the tree, etc.) and I went down those steps like a bag of dirt. Both my feet went out from under me at the top of the porch just like in a cartoon - and thence all the way to the bottom on my elbows and backside.

    Holy crap I am sore!

    I did have a weird dream involving nudity, trenchcoats and a van with no brakes after my slip and fall. And oh yeah, she was in it too. So no complaints I guess.
