imperial at-at stroller

if you don’t know what an at-at is, don’t bother reading further. i promise it’s a waste of your time.

in some social circles, this stroller would get your kid some serious props. in other circles, he would get stuffed in a garbage or get an indian burn.

long weekend links

i took a couple days off next week so i don’t have to work till next thursday. i hope to not accomplish much since it’s been hectic the last couple weeks.

also, i use google analytics to review stats on the website – it helps me count the 3 visitors who actually come here to read the stories. one of the sections shows what keywords people searched for in google that ended up at my site. here’s the top 10 phrases as measured by google:

  1. evan o’dorney
  2. elliot yamin
  3. evan o’dorney pitch
  4. bruce bowen dirty player
  5. jatbar
  6. kate beckinsale’s feet
  7. “white girls and gang signs”
  8. make your own southpark character
  9. how to sell crystal meth
  10. make a southpark character

item 6 & item 9 are my favorites – item 9 especially. if you go to google and search for “how to sell crystal meth”, my site comes in at #3 [click here to do this in google]. it’s purely by mistake/chance but i know some people pay big money to be right at the top of a google search. i just like the fact that 3 people actually searched for how to sell devil’s dust on google. what’s next a wikipedia article?

solution for slow police response

unless someone has a gun, you’re not likely to see any city cops racing to your house when you have a disturbance outside or someone growing huge amounts of pot across the street. the guy in the article could have very well been my dad, considering how his logic works:


nevermind baby is old now

remember the album cover for nirvana’s nevermind album?

the baby in the pool is now 16 years old.

i wonder if there are any lasting effects on having his weiner exposed to 100 million people when he was younger.



the only thing that seems to slow marcos down these days is the hard asphalt under a gravel road. the two met on sunday and the road got the upper hand.


finally…a nice relaxing weekend

was on call for the first part of the weekend but got out of the house enough to enjoy the excellent weather. went up to ed levin park with marcos and hiked around till he got tired and wanted me to hold him.

and, of course, trying to pick up rocks to throw in the water:

and after 100 practice jumps a day, his vertical leap is now about the same as mine these days:

this week there’s not much coming up but might get a chance to hit the padres-giants game on tuesday night.

playground links

remember “at the playground” by another bad creation? what a disaster that turned out to be, considering they were produced by bell biv devoe. i wouldn’t be surprised to see them on an upcoming “dancing with the stars” episode. here’s some stuff to get you lubed up for the weekend.

getting slimmer

not me so much, but the wife has dropped maybe 5-10 pounds. i was thinking to bring something like this home, you know, to help out and stuff.


he took after daddy’s vertical

it’s only a matter of months weeks before marcos has a higher vertical leap than his daddy.
