Black Ink, and a Naked Newborn...

... what could possibly go wrong?

Actually went much better than expected. The footprint was pretty easy... the handprint was another story. Babies tend to keep their hands clenched in a fist. So trying to get a flat palm on a piece of paper was kinda fun.

Thankfully, he cleans up real nice. At least until he gets into his next mess.

At Least It's Not the Mumps

I, like many of my loyal readers, got the flu this week. It was cause for consternation here at the Home Office, as I had already gotten sick once this winter. Now, add in a brand new human being, and you can tell how much fun it's been around here lately.

But we've appeared to have weathered the storm. I should return to work tomorrow, and Lil' Man didn't seem fazed that I got sick. I did stay up with him one night to watch Caddyshack, so I got that goin' for me. He seemed to enjoy it... or at least that's what I'll tell him in 10 years.

The other humorous event came from my trip to the doc's office. Last time I was there was in May, when I messed up my knee. Well, I know I've put on a few pounds since then, so I had them look up what I weighed back then. The nurse was happy to inform me that I was a svelte 194 pounds then. I hopped on the scale, the new number came up... and the nurse tapped the monitor, asked me to step off, and try again.

She thought maybe something was wrong, but there wasn't. The second trip on the scale registered the same number...


But hey, I still ran a 4.8 at the combine a few weeks ago.

Global Warming, My Ass

We've had over 75 inches of snow so far this year. We got 14 in one day just a week ago.

They're telling us to brace for at least another 8 ( of the good, wet, heavy kind ) inches on this Sunday.

The average winter around here gives us just over 36 inches of snow. Last winter at this time, we had 32 inches.

And it's still only the middle of February. Here in Wisconsin, it'll snow well into March. Good times. If you're a polar bear.

Not only do we live in this suckitude weather, Will would like explain why it's not just the weather that sucks around here.

Even Nort is done with the weather, and his mind is as close to a polar bear's as you can get. Now that's saying something.

God help us.

A Day In The Life

"Hey, you think if I pee all over myself after just getting out of the bath, you think they'd be mad?"

"Gimme a kiss!!!"

"So I was all like, 'Officer, I didn't know you couldn't do that'...."

"Aww Daddy, I'm sorry I was screeching a little while ago. Forgive me? Okay, good."

"HEY!!! Pipe down over there! I'm tryin' to tell a story over here!!!"

"Dude, if I wasn't wearing these oven mitts, and I could sit up... I'd so kick the shiat outta whatever is hanging from this thing..."

"HA HA! That Jon Stewart is one funny motherf*cker!!!"

Baby Can Haz Cheezburger?

Making Light Of a Bad Situation

From Kiki... It's the Snoop Dogg Weather Forecast. I've still been cranky about the bullshait weather we just had here, and with the arctic blast we're about to get this weekend, I needed something to make me laugh.
