Moving…Moving…Moved

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

So for the past few weeks I have been getting ready for a move, which we finally did this weekend. It wasn’t a “big deal” move, like the many cross-country moves I’ve managed to make over the years, TX-CA, CA-TX, TX-IL, IL-AZ, AZ-TX damn I move entirely too much. This time it was just from one part of the Dallas area to another part. I now live in a city that most people have heard of only because it was featured in a zombie movie, which I suppose is strangely appropriate.

Well it turns out that moving is a lot more complicated when you have small children. You see, my wife and I have worked out this system where at any given point in time one of us is watching the twins, and one of us is doing something to make money through our web design business.   Now we added a third job: packing.  Which would seem to require the services of another adult in our household to do this while keeping up with the first two jobs.  My suggestion that we simply add another wife to the household to increase our ability to deal with extra chores was met with a surprising amount of positive consideration, which probably says quite a bit more about the realities of juggling a home business with multiple children than my spouse’s views on polyamory.

The trailer is out. This is quite possibly the most important cinematic event to take place during my lifetime.

Mere words cannot describe the glee that I am now filled with.

Seriously, I am just freaking crammed with glee now.

The Man We Can All Smell Like

I can’t believe I missed this. Yesterday Isaiah Mustafa AKA the Old Spice guy, was taking questions, and then making a video to answer them.

I’m actually pretty impressed with how many of these they managed to crank out so quickly.

SGT Johnson’s Retirement Speech

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

Johnson’s Retirement Speech:

Ever since I enlisted, I have had to convince people that I was in the military. When I’ve told people I was in the military, the response was something to the effect of, “Right. Now what do you really do?”

And Nukes Are Supposed To Be Smart

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

Well, my days in Charleston are numbered. I’m being transferred up to Ballston Spa, NY next week. I figured I would share one more tale (or tales, depending on how you look at it) about my time here.

–We get guys fresh out of Boot Camp on a weekly basis. Probably the most entertaining thing to do is, naturally, screw with them. Doing so becomes that much easier on the tail end of the pipleline down here because your uniform says that you’ve made it. You can get them to do all kinds of stupid crap.

For instance, we have a strict code against hazing, which is promptly ignored. Because Naval Weapons Station Charleston (excuse me, Joint Base Charleston) is also a federal nature preserve, we get a lot of wildlife here, mostly as squirrels. One common joke is to tell the new guys, known as Indockers, to salute the squirrels.

Disappointment.

Monday, July 12th, 2010

This weekend I received the following email:

I AM VERY DISSAPOINTED THAT I HAVE NOT RECEIVED MY REPLACE MENT COUPON FOR SKIPPY CREAMY PEANUT BUTTER
ADDRESS REDACTED

Note that caps, spelling, and formatting was left alone to preserve the magic that was this email. (Except for removing his physical address)

Now despite the fact that my site has been up for a little over 8 years, I have never actually gotten an email from someone who has confused me for the peanut butter company before.
