Busy This Week

Sorry folks, been a tad busy with visitors over a long weekend.  I’ll be back tomorrow with my missed Monday post, and I’ll have my normal Wednesday post on Thursday this week.

-Confusion is a state of mind, or is it?

The Tacohut has the plague. Again.

Seems like ever since having kids it’s a plague a month over here. Prior to having kids I got sick maybe every other year, if that. With kids, both TacoMa’am and myself have been sick at least three times each this winter. Seriously, can we be done with the season of illness, it’s overstayed its welcome.

It wouldn’t be so bad if Tron could just sit on the couch and be sick, but, unless he spends a full 24 hour period throwing up every 30 minutes, illness doesn’t really slow him down at all. I wish I had that much plague energy.

Oh, actual non-whiny content, right!


Wait! What’s that over there!

Yay Illness!

Now, nearly a week after Tron started his wonderful weekend-long vomit-fest, the rest of the house is beginning to get sick. And by “the rest of the house” I mean myself and TacoMa’am.

Interestingly, thus far neither of us have joined the hurf brigade. Rather, we’ve both got symptoms more akin to having a cold or mild flu. And really, I’m kinda fine with spending a week congested and coughing instead of spending three days throwing up.

Of course, the illness strikes at a time where I can’t possibly take any time off work to tend to myself or TacoMa’am, so that’s put us both in a great mood.

Not much else to say today other than “I’m sick, so you don’t get much post.”

UPDATE: Hurf Brigade is my Spew cover band.

Busy Busy

Between working a lot of overtime, Tron coming down with a nasty stomach bug, and having a huge server install at work I’ve not been having much time to do posts (you might have noticed I missed Thursday and Friday last week).

I should be coming into the clear by tomorrow so I can cook up some actual content, but until then all I’ve got for you all is an apology for not keeping on top of things. Well, that, and a picture of a snow leopard cub in a bowl.

Sorry Everyone. Busy and stuff.

I know that I missed Friday, and I’m gonna miss my Monday’s game today, which I’ll have to make for tomorrow.

With the holiday stuff and an extremely sore back this morning I’m just not going to be able to put anything together for today… other than this post telling you all that I’m not going to post.

Uh… SQUIRREL! *Points*

YOINK! 1000 Awesome Things

A website I go to every now and again when I need a pick-me-up (or some nostalgia), is 1000 Awesome Things by Niel Pasricha.

With all the rampant negativity that seems to frame our culture these days, I find a site dedicated to highlighting all the little bits of awesome of daily life to be… uh… awesome. The bits of awesome are generally very small things that we’ve all experienced and (often enough) take for granted.

What might you find there? Well, using a Q-Tip improperly, for one. Or maybe you’re more into that first bit of peanut butter that comes out of the jar? How about people farting in public? A tough one, eh? Well, then you’re probably like me and plan to use your snooze alarm by setting your clock early.

No? Well, you’re no fun at all. You’re probably one of those people who thinks the peak of awesome is being the contractor who holds the stop sign during road construction. So very typical of you.

-Confusion is a state of mind, and it’s awesome.

The issues continue…

So, instead of a real post, here’s a picture of some garlic I grew this year:

I had a post today…

But WordPress ate it and the autosave log is all blank. So instead, here is a picture of a rat sleeping with its teddy.

Apologies to the Readers

Sorry for being scarce around here for the past week.  My family and I took a vacation to California to visit my Grandmother for her 80th birthday and I found myself without any time to make posts on the blog during said vacation.  We got back yesterday after taking a red-eye flight and we all spent the day sleeping and recovering.  Because of all this I’m bumping Monday’s game to Thursday this week.

Part of the reason for so extensive a recovery time is that one of the days we were there was spent at Disney Land.  It was Tron’s first trip there, so we spent 15 hours at the park.  He crashed pretty hard at the end of the day, but we all had a ton of fun.  The other part of the exhaustion is that I spent Sunday sick as a dog from either dehydration or overexertion (or possibly one of those 24-hour flus that happen from time to time).  With all that fun, I just didn’t get any time to do most posting, for which I’m sorry.  Normal posts should resume tomorrow.

I would have warned everyone ahead of time that I was going on this trip, but my policy is to not give information out on the internet that could potentially allow a thief to know when I’m going to be away from my house for a prolonged period.

I’ll also have some pictures of our trip up eventually, as well as a bunch of other pictures I keep meaning to put on the blog.

Once again it’s a cop-out Monday.  With the combination of a gaming weekend and the TacoHut getting new windows today, I just plum forget to make a post for today.  As such, Monday’s game will be on Tuesday yet again.

In the spirit of cop-out posts I thought I’d change things up:

I call them "Tuna Flops."
