My stupid life

Made it!

Made it though another mind-numbing year of work to our winter break! No posts for about two weeks!

All i wanted was auto-completion for Tags

Sorry if you got any 500 errors while trying to leave comments. I was trying to upgrade to Movable Type 4.01 but i failed and i backed out. Everything should be working fine now.

Reminded me of this xkcd comic, phase II.

(Actually i was just trying to stifle debate on the Thanos/Darkseid issue.)

Update: All done.

It Happened Just Like This

Picture fnord12 and myself sitting on the couch. Me on my laptop, alternately checking my email and glancing at the latest headlines. Fnord12 reading a Shanna the She-Devil comic (possibly issue #5, first appearance of Nekra).

"Hey," i say in feigned excitement, "they've found a cure for sickle cell anemia in mice!"
Fnord12 murmurs over his comic, not even glancing up, "Good. Those mice deserve a break."

Life is good.

Hey you kids, get off our lawn!

Here is our back yard:

You will note that there is a fine sprinkling of snow on the grass, what one might call a 'dusting'. I can also tell you that we had some slight flurries over night as well, so there was more snow on the lawn this morning when i took the picture than there was last night around 9:00pm.

Nonetheless, you will see sled marks in the "snow".

Mind you, the scale of this picture is such that the top of that hill is about 30 ft away, and the very bottom of the picture is basically where our back door is.

Again, nonetheless, for over an hour last night, we had kids sledding down that hill. On less than an inch of snow. On, essentially, the grass.

And these weren't little kids. These kids were 15, 16 easy. And they were whooping and squealing like 6 year olds in their first big snowstorm. Right outside our door, about 2 feet from where min and i were sitting, watching them, horrified.

I don't mind kids ("kids") playing in our backyard. But this was just... weird.
