After years of a mediocre online presence I have grown sick of myself.  I don’t think it’s related to what I write, what I post, my political leanings or any of those common topics that make an online persona what it is.  I don’t think it’s my online persona per se.  I am just sick of myself, in all areas of my life, online and off.  So, with some hesitation I will be removing all of my various blogs over the next few days to weeks.  I may re-emerge in some manifestation but at this point I could not tell you what that manifestation will be.  I blame recent life events for this identity crisis, as I’ve labeled it.  I no longer really know who I am or who I want to or should be.  Some things will never change and that is my dedication as a father.  I will always love my children with all of my heart and will never cease to be everything that they deserve.  To be honest, my children are, what I consider to be, my one saving grace.  Loving them, and being loved by them, has made some pretty tough situations survivable.  However, every other aspect of who I am is fair game. It’s time to make a change, for better or worse. I don’t really know if anyone reads this blog anymore but if there are any passers by, farewell…  Thanks for stopping by.  Maybe our paths will cross elsewhere in the future.

at least that is what we are being lead to believe.

I am a very involved father. I love my two children more than life itself. From the moment they started school (e.g. daycare and now kindergarten for my oldest) they have been my morning commute mates. I consider my daughter to be my co-pilot because she is always watching what is going on and letting me know when a light red or green. Rather than go out frequently on the weekends I choose to stay home with my kids. I love being there with them and I love being there for them should they need me for some reason after they go to bed, even if it is just to tell me I’m handsome, then 5 minutes later to tell me she’s thirsty and 10 minutes later to ask me to cover her up. For me, there could be no better, and certainly no more important, way to spend an evening.

After all this time I thought the looks I’ve gotten were looks of pride, admiration and respect. I thought to myself “people are looking at me and seeing what a committed and loving father I am.” However in reality, after reading a recent article, I have come to the conclusion that everyone is placing bets on the size of my testicles. They don’t care that I would walk to the ends of the earth to be there for my children. They don’t care that every thought throughout the day is occupied in part by visions of my children. I would say that they don’t care that I would give my left testicle if it meant providing for my children but somehow I think they may care about that one as it may have the potential to upset their wagers.

Dads, continue to be the great dads that you are. Now that we are easily identified as the Small-Testicled-breed of man good parenting is all we have left.

god I hate Bobble Heads….

Wal-Mart breeds stupidity?

Posted: November 22, 2006 in humor, Misc., My Opinion

I love Wal-Mart. I shop there fairly frequently and often find good deals on items such as video games, electronics, CDs and home decor. You can’t beat the variety or the bargains. However, my hate for Wal-Mart is so much stronger than my love for it because it seems that as soon as someone pulls into the parking lot (other than me of course), they become stupid. The parking situation is a mess. Cars are strewn throughout the lot with wreckless abandon. Shopping carts are strategically placed throughout the lot like mines hidden under the sand. You know that unless you park your car as far from the store as possible, you are guaranteed at least one scratch, if not a dent or ding. To think, we haven’t even entered the store yet. Once inside, the situation does not get better. Even though you are faced with a plethora of sinful delights, a smorgasborg of bargains, an orgy of rolled back prices, you must first survive what I call the crash course or demolition derby of modern day retail. Shopping carts are slamming into each other, babies are crying, mothers and fathers are swearing and the “local” young punks are roaming the aisles looking for mischief. When its time to check out, you are faced with what can only be compared to woodstock, in size and smell. Hundreds of people are camped out in front of the registers, not moving and the odor emanating from the person in front of you is somewhat reminiscent of dirty feet. Customers shop in bulk, although half of the items are deleted from the transaction once they see the total. Why can’t Wal-Mart customers be more aware of how much money they are spending compared to how much money they have? Are Wal-Mart customers typically more stupid than customers at other stores or does Wal-Mart breed stupidity for the short time that a customer is there? Why is Wal-Mart so different than other Big Box retailers in that stupidity is out of control at Wal-Mart while at Target, there is no intellectual deficiencies?  Why is it that every time I go to Wal-Mart, I swear I’ll never go back, yet I do, no more than one week later?

Just when I thought I would quit posting Star Wars videos and focus on something else, I find more that I just can’t resist.  This is pretty good.  I didn’t even search for this, I just happened to stumble across it during my “travels.”  Enjoy–

Its clear now that the Big Dig in Boston was a big mistake.  There have been nothing but problems since its conception and now someone has paid with their life.  I think it is only appropiate to re-name the Big Dig.  I’d like everyone who reads this post to submit their suggestion.  I will pick a winner and post it (and who it is from) on Friday.

Good Luck

This one is pretty bad but still a good find. They draw some parallels to star wars and star trek but don’t get too excited as it is mostly a ploy to suck you in. Its still fun to watch though. If adult themes and animated nudity offend you, you may not want to watch this.
