my life

i’m a warriors fan and enjoying their recent success after watching years of deplorable success with players like alton lister and kevin pritchard. i have my second electric car. i recently put a deposit in for the new tesla model 3 car but was disappointed at the interior and potential for problems since it’s the first model year of that car. i grew up near my parents and my kids grew up near their great-grandparents which is fantastic because i grew up far from extended family.

headline writers after a couple drinks

gotta love the headlines on newspapers.

humpy day linkage factor

some good bits to ponder as you plan the upcoming weekend. anytime after noon on wednesdays is already heading downhill towards the weekend!

-no joke about what a typical sarah palin supporter looks like [popcrunch]

-keep detailed records of the electronic items you bring through tsa security checkpoints. this guy took over $200k of passengers goods [gizmodo]

-too big to bring to school for show-and-tell, you’d have to bring the kids to the house to see this 20-foot-long warship [brothers-brick]

-i could feel the bloodflow concentrate in the middle of my body as i saw all the things you can wrap bacon around [divine caroline]

-fbi sting operation nets crooks and thieves involved with credit card laundering schemes and identity theft action [wired]

and

rolling stone puts at #201 in the worlds top 500 songs of all time, but i would remove the 20 and make it my favorite of all time. the frente remake only adds to the appeal.

even spider man has to sleep

marcos wearing his halloween costume home from the store…maybe with a modest snore like daddy.

weekend before moving links

already on a reduced posting schedule because of new baby action, we’re also getting ready to move houses (again!). the lady that owns the house we’re renting wants to move back in. not a big deal because we were able to find a nearby house that is a little nicer for a little more money. i just hate moving more than anything else in the world.

excuse the pity party – enjoy the links instead:

-cool xrays of interesting injuries. safe for work and safe for sensitive stomachs, even the still-on vibrator that has penetrated the colon. [flickr]

-we don’t have a dvd player, so i can’t say if this is what happens but maybe some of the homebodies can tell me [fellasleepwatchingadvd]

-without using these exact terms and shapes/colors of the participants, this sounds eerily familiar among people that i know. i personally don’t find frame 3 funny with the farting guy. [mingle2]

-beneath the fancy-dancy exteriors, there’s a huge slave trade in abu dhabi that is responsible for erecting these huge buildings. complaining about living in the irvington district of fremont seems comparatively trivial [guardian.co.uk]

-garage chemistry tinkering as kids was a rite of passage. now it will land you on an atf watchlist [wired]

and…

-where was this when i was small enough to have someone else in the shower with me? [popgive]

still one of the best…

still one of the best songs of all-time. we practiced for months days on playing guitars when we were younger thinking that it would be the ticket to land hot chicks. i will no doubt be having my boys start the guitar lessons early so their lives will be richer by having hot chicks submit themselves.

if sarah palin was a garbage pail kid

if the candidates were trains

i wouldn’t even give palin credit for being thomas the train – maybe more like the troublesome trucks?

vp debate is tonight

im so anxious for the day to pass away so i can watch joe biden just absolutely destroy that puppet sarah palin tonight during their debates. the only good thing about sarah palin being involved in this election is that there is so much to make fun of and laugh at. and, i suppose, seeing tina fey again on snl.

this is what jack cafferty thinks of her. his comments start at the 1:35 mark.

this comes after couric asks her what books and magazines she reads. she did not/could not name a single named source she reads regularly. maybe she was embarrassed to admit that it’s just the cookie lee catalog.
