Laws of Stupidity

While using my favorite new Firefox extension, StumbleUpon, I found this neat site today.

Basic Laws of Human Stupidity

I was amazed at how well it sums up my feelings on the large amount of stupid I have to wade through every day. Check it out!

Been a long time, been a long time, been a long...

OK, I've gone too long without posting. I've been sick with a nasty head cold, sent out of town for 3 days for work, and basically had nothing to post about. I'll try to do better tomorrow or sunday. For now, it's cold med + bed.

A few new photos

Just to show that my life doesn't totally suck, here are a few photos of some good things that have happened lately.

This is the house. Got stone on the front now! Lots of new stuff on the inside, too!

Like the stone on the fireplace and the sheetrock having been put up so you can see the layout of the place.

I don't normally put pics up to show off how cute my cat is, but this one was too good not to share. "TURN OFF THAT LIGHT!"

My Christmas gift to Bert, Jeff, Dave, Ed, Chris and Elizabeth, Brian and Sophie, Phil and Selena, etc. Whenever I see you next, you get one of these lovely jars of the best homemade spice mix in the world!

My team wins my office Fantasy Football playoffs!

82-69. Nuf sed.

Panthers deeeeeee-stroy the weak NY Giants!

What a wonderful new year's celebration!

Well, I was waiting for the other shoe to drop, and it did. The contractors my company hired to do installs for my project had not one, but two installers either get contagious rashes or have car accidents, so I had to drop my holiday plans and work. My company now owes me three days of missed vacation.

I spent my New Year in Seminole, FL, installing our software and hardware in a brand-new Panda Express. My wife would have been furious if she hadn't been sick and in bed the whole time. Bernie let me know that she LOVES New Year's. Personally, it's not my favorite holiday, but that's mostly due to past years of not having a significant other to share the moment with. I can see that this will change in the future.

I did make it back home in time for the traditional New Year dinner of roast pork, greens, and black-eyed peas. Those of you who weren't raised in the South should note that the pork is for good health, the greens for money, and the peas for good luck in the new year.

Oh yeah, I got a remarkable fortune in my cookie from Panda Express:
"You will move into a beautiful new home this year"
First of all, it's true. Secondly, how many fortunes do you get that make a specific prediction like that? Thirdly, it sort of implies that the fortune was meant to be read on New Year's. Quite neat.
