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.

conan’s new craigslist ad

my personal motto for 33 years

babies and puppies are chick magnets

saw this good ad during the lakers/cavs game last night:

i am hungry for lunch

kate beckinsale has the right idea for lunch – in and out burger! now, i just need to find someone to bring me there…

thanks to [trimac1] for the picture.

fedex is better than ups links

so, i needed something here quickly and the vendor offered to ship via ups next day. it was delayed in southern california due to “inclement weather” whereas i got something from fedex today taking the same route. wtf? i’ve tried to give ups a chance to get more of our business but they suck at stuff like this. anyway, now that’s off my chest, enjoy these stories while you stay dry under a roof somewhere:

-> i knew san francisco was a little crooked with lombard street, hilly landscape and weird people, but this photographic evidence proves it []

-> the guy in the picture above could be charging his cell phone or ipod while he walks if he uses one of these new devices [cnet news]

-> very interesting way to compare the world’s religions []

-> maybe dubai’s punishment for making women wear a burqa and walk behind the men is that now they are facing one of the biggest financial meltdowns in history [denver post photoblog]

-> considering people’s attention spans these days, it’s miraculous that they spend the time to write such lengthy notes and leave them on people’s windshields []

-> the zeppelin ‘eureka’ is based in the bay area and you can rent it out for small groups and take a zep tour. here are some great hi-res pics (example below) from a recent trip []

that’s gonna take a while to defrost

i’m glad it doesn’t snow where i live. i don’t mind having to drive a couple hours for the kids to play in the snow.

happy martin luther king day

denver public schools honor the dr martin luther king with some authentic southern comfort food. stay classy!

wade’s neck must be burning up

jerry’s death stare is making holes in wade’s head after that horrible loss to the vikes on sunday.

honest hospital signage

i get confused by medical advice and hospital signage sometimes, but this one seems to be pretty straightforward.
