Liam’s First Football Game

Sunday, November 3rd, 2002

Liam watched his first televised football game this afternoon. We watched the 49ers play the Raiders. I'm pretty sure, judging by when he was most gassy, that he was cheering for the Niners. He did take a pretty sizable siesta in the latter part of the second half, but he ...

Smokers and Litterbugs

Tuesday, October 29th, 2002

Two things I really just can't abide: smokers, and litterbugs. The sad thing is that smokers are usually litterbugs too. Just look on the ground anywhere smokers congregate and you'll see butts everywhere. I get especially annoyed when litter smokers toss their butts in pretty flower beds. I'm sorry but ...

Monday, October 28th, 2002

My PC has been acting up since the day I put the thing together a couple of months ago. The problem was that occasionally, during boot up, it would hang. Drives would spin, fans would whir, lights would flash encouragingly, but no boot up procedure, no floppy scan. It didn't ...

My Amazing Wife

Tuesday, October 15th, 2002

I have to admit to you that my wife, Jennifer, does most of the work in raising our son. Oh, sure, I give him a bottle when I get home from work, I change a diaper occasionally, I hold him when he's crying. I do these things in the evenings ...

OfficeMax Comes Through

Monday, October 7th, 2002

I bought a CenDyne 48X12X48X CD burner at OfficeMax a couple of weeks ago. Part of the reason I bought it was that there was a $30 rebate in addition to it being $20 off the regular price. So instead of costing $99, it would only cost $49. Not a ...

Hallucinations

Friday, October 4th, 2002

I woke up this morning and my bedside clock read 6:21. Somehow, in my mind, this just didn't look right. The numbers looked funky, like they weren't really numbers. I wondered to myself "did someone turn my clock upside down?" I rearranged the thing in my mind and decided that ...

bible study

Tuesday, October 1st, 2002

I go to a bible study at the church on Tuesday nights. It's kind of neat. We start out with everyone in the sanctuary for a couple of songs and prayer requests and such. Then we split up with the men going to a different room and the ladies staying ...

Just catching up

Monday, September 30th, 2002

Just a few things that caught my attention lately: Saw a guy driving a mini-van while I was waiting for the train on Friday. He was turning right, his light was red and he drove partly into the crosswalk, forcing a pedestrian to go around him. He backed up, rolled down ...

The Last Ship

Thursday, September 26th, 2002

I started reading this book the other day. It's called "The Last Ship" and it was written by William Brinkley. It's a fictional story about a Navy Ship called the USS Nathan James. The Nathan James is a Guided Missle Destroyer (DDG) and is apparently the only survivor of a ...
