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.

best halloween costumes 2011

it’s time to showcase this year’s best costumes:

mermaid man and barnacle boy costume

mermaid man and barnacle boy. looks like this is in the castro.

dick in a box costume

imagine trying to explain the dick-in-a-box costume to your parents or to a foreigner.

snakes on a plane costume

my personal favorite was “snakes on a plane”, although i think most non-nerdy folks would have to get a thorough explanation of what a plane is, or that there was a movie of the same name. the wife didn’t like this one as much as i did.

firefoxy costume

fantasy football costume

one leg costume
