Oh, forgot to mention. On the new (used) car we picked up, it has its first ding. Left rear wheel well. Something hit or scraped it. My oldest (who would have had the car at the time) doesn’t know anything about it. It’s really minor, and frankly you expect something like that with a newish driver. And it honestly might not have been his fault, could have been any number of people in...
Well that sucks. I guess a fawn tried to clear our fence, probably trying to follow its mother. It didn’t make it and impaled itself. Dead. Wife and two youngest kids spotted it when they were leaving the house. 10YO daughter is crying hysterically. Also, it seems city animal control is “too busy” with live animals to come get the body, maybe they could make it by in “3...
The Cure is one of those bands where I pretty much only like their music when someone else performs it. Also on this list are Operation Ivy and The Selector. It’s somewhat surprising that OpIvy is on that list. I love Rancid, I love Dance Hall Crashers. I love ska/punk, they were a local band… but their performances just sound sloppy? The Clash might be on that list, too. I like Their...
The wife is cross with me because I had a shrimp & crab salad for lunch. She’s super paranoid about food poisoning. Then I brought the rest back to work with me to eat later, because it was huge. And left it sitting on my desk. It still tasted fine! I will now not be sick, and prove her wrong.
You know what disturbs me slightly? All these young ladies on Tumblr fangirling this male porn star.
Yes, if you post something that makes me worry that you might be suicidal, I’m going to pester you until I feel like you’ve got it under control or have help. Get pissed at me if you like, it’s far more important that you’re ok.

New iPhone Tumblr app! FINALLY! Someone ask me something I would be mortified to answer publicly on accident, I wanna see if they have improved that.
just googled cunnilingus

imbarisaxy: She is totally serial you guys. My mom wants a goat The oldest boy’s girlfriend. Unrelated to any goats, my two oldest boys have saxophone players for girlfriends. Not sure what’s up with that.
yellowcakeuranium replied to your post: So no, AT&T does NOT have fiber to the house in… I was lucky that my apartment has fiop… faster than shit, my friend… faster than shit… Yes, yes. I was kinda hoping for similar, but no.
Oh hey. Instagram typos are permanent. And Twitter. At least I can fix it here on Tumblr.
So no, AT&T does NOT have fiber to the house in this area. That was the quickest (non) install ever, I sent him on his way. Now I get to look forward to some billing disputes I’m sure. Yay! But the wife is down at the car dealership right now with a cashier’s check for the amount we intend to pay. Car looked good to me. Idles a little rough, but I don’t think it’s...
Probably buying a third car today. Wife found a 2006 Ford Focus she likes. It would belong to she and I, but with my 21YO having a license and no car, driving him to work and school has gotten a bit old. He’d be using it most of the time. We’d use it if my car was in the shop, or if the wife wanted to drive around town in something that used a bit less gas than the minivan.
Also feeling quite down tonight. Something I read on someone’s tumblr kind of set me off. Being vague on purpose, sorry.
I have to wait around in the morning for AT&T to install fiber. I’m switching my house landline, TV and Internet over to AT&T, from Comcast for TV & Internet and… AT&T for phone. (Going from the traditional POTS house line to VOIP for the phone. It was PacBell before AT&T bought them.) I’ve been ignoring the UVerse ads I get from them, several times per...
Ever have one of those days where you think to yourself that everyone in the world is a screw-up, so why should I bother trying not to be?
And now the oldest boy is following me here. I guess he heard I was talking about him with his girlfriend? Ok… but if I discuss your mother and I having sex, that’s what you get for looking. :)
Father's day gifts
Aw. The oldest and his girlfriend arranged a card for all my kids to sign, and picked me up a copy of Diable III! That was nice. (The girlfriend seems to have significantly bumped up the thoughtfulness level. They also got my wife some things for Mother’s Day.) Wife gave me my present early, last night.
