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.

happy father’s day

even evil soldiers have kids too. how do you think stormtroopers come about? just born as adults? i don’t think so.

i know you like that puffy hair and uni-brow.

these guys could use some fishbowl

after seeing this commercial, i instantly thought of paul from the diamond center and his commercials. they would come on channel 2 while i watched gi joe and transformers after school, so it didn’t seem like they were targeting the right audience. nonetheless, 25 years later, I still remember that nasty haircut and jingle.

the chosen one

the ultimate sandbox excavator

whenever we go to booster park, i always end up sitting on the sides watching the boys play in the sandbox. they have a great time laughing/crying up a storm, but i get a little bored unless i bring the kindle. i would love to have something like this to play with. i’d probably just go to the park on my own if the boys didn’t want to go.

the nintendo zapper

what if guns in movies were replaced by zappers? [nullpoint]

what if facebook was in real life

viral marketing campaign for a new london opera, but that doesn’t matter. this is what facebook would be in real life.

some young giants fans made get well cards for buster posey. i see bright futures ahead for these kids.

my great 18-hole round of 45

here’s my smoking round of 18 which had only one bird.

for being a woman, les shot a respectable 52, which is only 7 strokes behind me.

you guys should play this course at least once in your life

-> some japanese suffer from ‘paris syndrome’ when they get to france, because of how rude most frenchies are and how they only wear talcum powder instead of deodorant. kidding stephane. my skin has been thickened over the years of working with frenchies, especially my nose skin. their body odor on a warm day just sort of deflects off [bbc.co.uk]

-> here’s a good rant about reducing the role and power of government by privatizing everything and how it would benefit the US. just kidding. it’s terrible  [ny times]

-> feeling down? don’t read these comics or you’ll jump over the edge [nickstjohn.net]

-> there’s a whole subculture of people looking for faults in movies. this is both interesting and creepy that people work hard to document and share this [imdb]

-> there is a mathematical equation that describes how surnames are moving slowly towards extinction. did you know that vietnam has only about 100 surnames, with 60% having the top three surnames? no wonder they are so ugly [wikipedia]
