Jealous Of The Rhyme And The Rhyme Routine

Japanese techno-pop with faux slow motion dancing? It must be Random Tuesday.


Hey. You. Ya, you with the hair. Go back to the video and watch a bit. Just watch the first little bit. Or skip ahead to about 3:45 and watch from there. Really, you'll enjoy it. If you don't, I'll give you your money back.

Heh heh.

Ernie and Bert if Picasso had drawn them.

Occasionally they don't fight.

File this under "the world is just awesome."

See all those brown spots and the grey spots underneath them? They're manta rays. Seriously. click on the picture. From German photographer Florian Schulz:

"During an aerial expedition over the coast of Baja California Sur, I came across something I had never seen before. Not even my pilot, who has surveyed this area for 20 years, had seen anything like it. As we glided high above over the water looking for whales, a large dark spot caught our attention. As we got closer we started to discover its nature: an unprecedented congregation of rays. The group was as thick as it was wide, all heading towards the same direction. I have asked around why this took place but no one has been able to explain it to me. After such a unique sighting, I realise there are so many marvels in the oceans that we are yet to understand. Our knowledge of the oceans is so limited; I just hope that we are in time to rescue it before it collapses from pollution and over fishing."

Yesterday, on the ZNN, a blog I share with Middle Aged Woman from Unmitigated, Jenni of Oscarelli commented that:
"you should do a post comparing newborns to zombies. there are ample similarities. babies are cuter, duh, but both are slow moving and suck the life out of you."

She might have something there. If this kid had teeth he'd have gnawed my arm off.

Speaking of zombies, check out The Un Mom for more Random Tuesday fun.

Are Tee Tee

Hey everybody! How's- GAH!  $@&*! #*%$! *% $*&%!!!  $$*^#@)$*!!!!!


As sure as the sun rises in the east, I will stub my toe on the baby's bouncy chair at least once a day and usually at about 5am or while I'm actually holding the baby with the other kids around and can't... express myself properly.

My first week on the job out of training, in pictures.

The writing on my shirt from the 15th says, "extra large, double-double," which won't make any sense to you unless you live in Canada. It's one of those magical things like universal health care, colourful money and the actual separation of church and state.

While playing with Play-Doh the other day...
Supreme Leader: What are you making?
Liam: It's poison! Isn't it beautiful?
We keep his door locked at night.

"It's the most wonderful time of the year..." Back to school? Whatever, it's the beginning of the fall tv season! Speaking of school, the kids were in bed nice and early tonight... so they will be fresh for school tomorrow.

And so ends this half-assed post. Hawaii Five-O is on. Aloha.

Go visit Keely and join the fun.

Almost Posted Without A Title

How does a family of Star Wars geeks pimp their mini-van?

This vehicle stops for Death Stars.

So what the hell? I miss a couple weeks of Random Tuesday and not only does Keely totally redecorate but she doesn't even have a button...

(short pause while I go over to her site to copy her URL)

Oh... er...


Heh heh. Oh look, a cookie.

So I'm starting my fourth week of training in my new job, which means I only have two more weeks before I'm thrown to the wolves. Remember when I was laughing it up about free coffee and BBQ's and having two monitors for my computer? Ya, well, I spent last Friday sitting in with someone and watching what I'm actually expected to be doing in a few weeks. Mommy.

Remember Alien?

This is just plain creepy.

During the last couple of shifts at my old job they started playing Justin Bieber as a part of some promotion. I know, I should have taken it to a human rights tribunal, right? Anyway, to add insult to injury, once they'd finished playing his CD a criminal amount of times, they started playing something equally as abusive. It sounded like one of those damn music compilations like the Mini-Pops where they get normal kids singing popular music and butchering it horrifically. Turned out it was actually Glee. Now don't get me wrong, I started watching the show with Supreme Leader last season and I love it. But take those songs out of the context of the show and things get ugly.

Catch a Hobbit.

Because some of you like cats...

Figuratively For Dad, Literally For Son

Much like the thousand posts I've done now.
