Why I don’t need to have children…

May 29, 2008 at 11:22 am (life, pets)

…my cats (whom I’ve mentioned before….) absolutely have to be let into the bathroom if the door is closed.  I mean to the point that the oldest one will headbutt the door until we open it.  The younger one just stands there and meows, which I equate to “mommmmm, let me in. I have to see what you’re doing; Moooommmmm”

Dear Asshat,

May 13, 2008 at 10:22 am (life)

Thank you so much for driving so fast down my street that you had to come to a 20 foot skidding halt on top of my mailbox.

Thank you for leaving my mail strewn all over the street.

Thank you for hitting the mailbox so hard it now rocks in the concrete base.  Thankfully we have one of those mailboxes made out of industrial plastic and made by one of those companies that make children’s outdoor toys.

Oh I’m sorry, this wasn’t meant to be a nice letter.  Here’s a hardy fuck you for all of the above.  You could have had the courtesy to put the mail back in the back the damn box instead of leaving it all over the road for anyone to come by and take.

Weekend update #1

May 12, 2008 at 10:31 am (Weekend Update)

Best part of the weekend: Selling the truck. It’d been sitting in the drive way for well over a year and there was no way to know when gas prices were going to make it marginally acceptable to start driving again.

Worst thing about selling the truck: feeling like we got shammed on the selling of the truck

Worst thought about the weekend: Sunday was Mother’s Day.  I wasn’t really that upset that is was and that my mother is not around anymore.  Sort of a non-issue now.

Absolute best part of the weekend: Chocolate cupcakes with buttercream icing.  OMG!  Which begs the question, who do you eat your cupcakes?  Me, I slowly lick all the icing off, then eat the cupcake!

For the geeks that stop in….

… I give you…(and one geek in particular will enjoy these!!)



Here are 16 actual error messages reportedly seen on

the computer screens in Japan, where some are written in Haiku.


The Web site you seek

cannot be located,

but countless more exist.


Chaos reigns within.

Reflect, repent, and reboot.

Order shall return.


Program aborting:

Close all that you have worked on.

You ask far too much.


Windows NT crashed.

I am the Blue Screen of Death.

No one hears your screams.


Yesterday it worked.

Today it is not working.

Windows is like that.


Your file was so big.

It might be very useful.

But now it is gone.


Stay the patient course.

Of little worth is your ire.

The network is down.


A crash reduces your expensive

computer to a simple stone.


Three things are certain:

Death, taxes and lost data.

Guess which has occurred?


You step in the stream,

but the water has moved on.

This page is not here.


Out of memory.

We wish to hold the whole sky,

But we never will.


Having been erased,

The document you’re seeking

must now be retyped.


Serious error.

All shortcuts have disappeared.



Both are blank
