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.

some days you need this

you need to have something like this handy for those days that aren’t going so well, maybe in a belt holster so you can quickly stamp things, people, objects.

a lifetime of success ahead!

there’s not much i can do with doyle, but this guy maximized his son’s opportunities with the ‘knight’ surname.

visit other websites please

it’s been slow here as of late, so i’m redirecting to you other websites that have some new, inspired content vs the useless drabble that i usually post.

-> accurate representation of my standing among friends and family [graphjam]

-> always make sure you clear your own computer of porn before reporting someone else to the authorities about porn – gotta love her picture, too [smoking gun]

-> its always easier to just try and make friends instead of forcing someone to like you through fear [nova]

-> create your own skittles flavored vodka for the next party. i never liked the yellow and green much, i’m more into the red & purple [lifehacker]

-> this is why you’re fat []

who knew anakin was of irish descent?

pictures below are from the irish women’s rugby team. how exciting is it to watch women tackle each other in the name of sports, although it would be better if they were a touch prettier.

i also like that the catholic church will allow meat consumption if st paddy’s day falles on a friday in lent:

The feast day usually falls during Lent; if it falls on a Friday of Lent (unless it is Good Friday), the obligation to abstain from eating meat can be lifted by the local bishop. [wiki]

it would be great to throw down some beer and corned beef today somehow.

[update: i just saw this today, but i don’t want to wait till next year to post the picture]

here’s a chair especially made for men wearing kilts. i wonder if this is a commodity item in ireland?

i gotta get me one of these.

family fun in tahoe

mad air!

we got out just in time on sunday as the snow flurries started to fall. thanks to gina for letting us crash at her family cabin over the weekend. it would be great to go there in the summertime too, as it’s right on the lakefront.

last post of the week links

i might not have time to post again since we’ll be up to our noses in snow this weekend. that means lake tahoe, mikey roberts!

-> not funny to some people, but a humorous take on why this guy rejects EVOLUTION [deviantart]

-> useful tutorial on how to get good pictures out of the built-in camera on the iphone []

-> the US military is helping soldiers with PTSD by making them drop and listen to trance music. kidding on the trance music part. the headline is killer – “…treatment draws rave reviews.” []

-> you know the economy is getting bad when staff at the “cheers” bar in boston is getting laid off [sf gate]

-> fetish site dedicated to clothed boys showing their armpits. Example pic below – you’re welcome []

have a great weekend BEEZIES.

thursday morning’s productivity drain

i don’t think i suffer from some attention disorder but there’s usually one thing a day that a website or a friend suggests which brings productivity to near zero. it could be a new lego set, a photo spread of a celebrity or anything with some skin. today, it’s idaft…produced by someone in friendly argentina. if you know daft punk, you can have this handy to create some interesting mixes.


jerry’s deli accused of fraud – mr p laughing

As part of a statewide sting to crack down on unscrupulous clerks and store owners, undercover California Lottery investigators went to several retailers in Santa Clara County in December and handed the clerks a decoy winning $1,000 scratcher, asking if they had won. At five of the stores, the clerks told the investigators that the ticket was not a winner and then went on to file a claim with the California Lottery as if the winning ticket was theirs.

growing up in the pines, jerry’s was the spot. mr p would never cheat his clients this way so it sucks that it had to come to this.

finally, good news about the giants!

seems like barry “bail” bonds has just brought down the giants name the last couple years. tim lincecum will be the cover boy of the 2k9 baseball game. funny commercial, too, with a quick cameo by randy johnson.
