It’s A Keeper

Well I’ve decided to go ahead and keep the new layout. It works for now I suppose.

In other news, all the conditions were removed from our offer, so come Sept 8th I’ll have a new address. Woo!

House Of Cards

Hello once again my dear friends (pretending that there is more than one of you still reading this makes it easier on my fragile ego). I seem to have become quite the delinquent blogger over the past little while. I guess having a family and a job that takes up all your time does sort of prevent certain time wasting elements of life.

So, let me ‘splain… no there is too much. I’ll sum up. Prince Humperdinck marry… errr nevermind. You all know the joke. I’ve used it enough times already that you can all just finish it in your heads at your convenience. Think of it as my gift to you.

So let’s see how things are in Gregtown.

Baby is somewhere in the 5th Month and making mommy rather grumptastic with it’s kickfests. Apparently the Five Nations Cup is being played in Tamara’s Uterus...

A Saturday Night @ Elrond’s Place

Why hello again intarwebs. I see we’re still on speaking terms. How the hell are you?

Okay… Obviously I haven’t posted in awhile. Haven’t really had much to say. The baby is still gestating (we’re somewhere near the 18 week mark now) and all is right in the world.

So rather than bore you all with the mundanity of my life I have decided to waste your time with this amusing little gem of a gif that I found online.

Enjoy.

Incarnations of Immortality

I’ve always wanted to be immortal. To live a long and varied life and witness history unfold has immeasurable appeal to me. While the “Highlander” style of immortal where there can be only one does have it’s boyish charm, I’d much rather just live. Unfortunately things are not so. We only get a short span of years in the grand scheme of things.

Sometimes though, that can be enough to create your own little bit of immortality.

Something Resembling A Post

Once again here I am sitting in my darkened living room trying to wind down from a long day at work. I’m not really tired but I expect I’ll be up early so I should probably be in bed…

Obviously I’m not listening to myself and so here I sit listening to Zero by Yeah Yeah Yeahs and trying to wind down. Never said I was the brightest bulb in the room now did I?

I know it’s been somewhere in the range of 30 million years since my last substantial post and for that I apologize. Life… has been interesting, to say the least. Mostly I’ve just been busy with living my life and not actually being online 24/7 like I used to be.  Strange thing that.

I guess I should take the time now to expand and elaborate on some of the things that I summed up in my last post.

Now as you may recall, Tamara and I we...

Oh Noes!

I’m back! Shock of all shocks, but I finally managed to figure out what was going on with my website and managed to have it fixed. It was a stupid backend problem with a wordpress plugin that was causing havoc and chaos all around.

Wow. I have a lot to catch up on.

Let me ‘splain.
[pause]
No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

Went to Rome. Had fun. Came back. Worked like a dog over Christmas pulling in multiple 88hr weeks. Got transferred to a different store. Got a “new” car.  Read Books. Lived Life. The end.

At some point now that the site is working again and that I’m back on a semblance of regular hours I will make some attempt at posting regularly once more. No guarantees as to when that will be.

Cheers for now. I’m off to watch Quantum of Solace.

Leaving… On A Jetplane

Don’t know when I’ll be back again.

Just a heads up folks but I’ll be MIA for the next few weeks. Tamara and I are off to Rome for a week of relaxation and (for her) shopping *grin*. I’m sure you’ll all miss my infrequent and senseless posts but I figure you’ll survive.

I even promise to update the Gallery when I get back.

Take Care kidlets!

When In Rome?

So in less than two weeks, Tamara and I will be in Rome, butchering the language, savouring the local cuisine and getting suitably and enjoyably lost in the twisting little streets all the while rubbernecking like the giddy tourists we are. Now we’ve got our own itinerary planned and our own ideas of what we want to see but I thought I’d take this time to see if anyone else had any suggestions of places to see (or places to avoid).

Looking forward to your ideas.

Yarrrr!

Avast ye scurvy dogs and barnacle lovin’ sea-rats. You should be knowin’ what today be by now. T’happens every time the wind blows September 19th our way. Aye, tis once again time to be sailin the seven seas of mediocrity and cursin’ those thrice damned land lubbers who’ve been searchin for me buried treasure. Tis once again, Talk Like A Pirate Day. Now buck up me hearties, or I’ll be sendin’ ye down ta meet Oul Davy himself.

— We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming… or in my case, I’m going back to playing spore. —

The Spore-t of Kings

Man… my post titles are getting lamer and lamer. I really had to dig for that one. I’m going to blame having to be up at 4am to take my girlfriend’s mom to the airport. Guh. It’s far too early and I have had far too few Monsters to be walking and talking, let alone blogging but hey, we all can’t be morning people now can we.

I will say that getting up at 4 did make me somewhat nostalgic for the late nights that I haven’t had in quite some time. Perhaps it was also the time of year. There was that crisp sharpness to the air that autumn always brings and that I love so much and the peace and quiet was exquisitely enjoyable...
