This place is a (real) zoo!

Since I spent last weekend in the self-indulgent partaking of excessive golf away from my wife and kidlings, I decided that today would be a good day to play the even-it-up card. With that in mind, I chose to devote myself to some good old-fashioned family time and took the whole day off from work. […]

QIWAT: Five important questions about kid’s shows

Why doesn’t Caillou have hair? I’ve been pondering this one for awhile, and it just simply defies understanding. Caillou is a sweet, pleasant, theoretically four year-old kid, yet he’s as bald a baby’s bottom. So what gives? After considerable thought, I’ve come to the conclusion that his lack of hair is the result of one […]

Photographic Haiku #2

To me, just a cage. For five unsullied young minds, boundless wonder there

A Tale of Two Trips

I did a lot of complaining yesterday about being all tired and sore because I spent all weekend playing golf in Louisville in the ungodly heat and then followed that up with a game of hockey. My wife had a pretty sympathetic response along the lines of, “Aw, did my poor Puddin get all tired […]

Excessive Balls

I am exhausted today. I’m not just kinda tired, and I don’t have the general blasé malaise that often accompanies a Monday morning return to the office. No, no, I am flat wore the hell out. So much so that a trip to the mailroom and back this afternoon, one floor below my office, made […]

The 10,000 year-long path to becoming a genuine person

I made a point to check my usual the video game websites today. It’s something I do with regularity, once every week or so, since obviously I need to keep abreast of all the ins and outs of the industry. I mean, I need to know when the next Halo game is going to drop. […]

Mundane Haiku #4

Bath time; all must wash towels, clothes, water left behind bathroom disaster

I laughed, I cried, I waited, I kissed a bunch of hard-earned $ goodbye

So, before there was work traveling or an eerie silence across Puddintopia, there was Saturday. The Puddinette and I took the three older kids to see Toy Story 3 with my parents. Everyone had a great time, I got to consume a ridiculous amount of tasty, evil, theater popcorn, and the movie was great. If […]

1.21 Gigawatts!

Welcome, my friends, to the show that never ends…well, except when my internet stops working. I guess that causes a temporary blip in the offering of words unto the ether. Thankfully, blessedly, happily, our signal has been restored, and data and phone calls flow freely once again into and out of our home like crude […]

Man vs. Envy

Luckily, I had the latest episode of Man vs. Food waiting for me on the DVR, giving me a minimum of 20 minutes of quality thoughtlessness. I have to admit, I love Man vs. Food. There’s probably no arguing that it one of those “guilty pleasure” shows, and that if the aliens are currently attempting […]
