My mom tells me that if I were a girl, I was going to be named Regina. After her favorite vacuum cleaner. At least they got the dog first and she got the name Starshine. Damn hippies.
Relatively quiet day today. Had to get up early to help my wife clean the church building. (Various groups take turns, it was her group’s turn, and I helped. Good thing, only one other person showed up.) After that, i pretty much sat on my ass and played Skyrim today. Didn’t shower until like 5:00PM. That was nice.
Oh, forgot! My oldest has to work from 8:00PM tonight until 5:00AM tomorrow morning, for the Black Friday sale. He has a seasonal job at Toys R Us. We’re thankful he’s got a job, but that’s a bit rough.

And driving back up Hwy 5. Wife is taking her turn. First 160 miles took about 3 hours. Not a great rate, but we never make good time getting out of LA. Plus, it’s raining on and off. Remaining ~240 miles will probably take about 4 hours, getting us home at Midnight. I’m guessing the teens won’t be quite ready to get up at 4:45 for Seminary in the morning. Always nice to...
I’m getting a little old for walking around Disneyland for 12 hours. I’m going to sleep so hard tonight. And then do it for another 8 hours tomorrow, followed by 6 or 7 hours of driving.
Support your local band
Just saw a post scroll by that got my attention. A girl was essentially saying “Got a Facebook invite for a local band show… been seeing them since we were 13-14… we’re in our 20’s now… don’t you think it’s time you got a real job? Haha.” Not trying to call the girl out, so I’m intentionally not naming her. I just want to provide a...
I know you were all terribly concerned, but I’ve got my new MacBook Pro. I’m typing this on it now. Oooohh…. fast. :) (Yes, I’m really spoiled. But I make a good living with my machines, so I can justify it.)
Wife and I had an intro private session with a woman who teaches yoga & pilates. It was interesting, I think we will probably continue. I guess her job is to point out that I stand and sit wrong, and then install new muscles that hurt?

It’s not like the name Ryan wasn’t already fairly common. Even Ryan Russell, I’ve run into a bunch of us. There’s at least one more of us on Tumblr. He’s a well-known photographer. But about 20 years ago, Ryan was the number one boy’s name in the US. And I think it stayed on the top ten for a few years. I couldn’t go to the mall without some young mom...
Tempted to complain about job stuff here on Tumblr as well. But to truly appreciate the level of dumb, there’s a lot of technical info to process. So let me just say that the process are stupid. Really, really stupid.
Well, 6 out of the 7 people in my household have had the cold. I guess it’s only fair that it’s my turn.
