Once again, it's that time of year, the time of year where we celebrate that most American of modern holidays: The Super Bowl (or, as my World History teacher, Mike Gould, called it, the Hyper Bowl).

(Side note: While I'm a big fan of tradition, I continue to maintain that the NFL needs to move the game to Saturday night so that people have Sunday to clean up and recover from the parties. )

Alas, my beloved Philadelphia Eagles will not be playing, but I'll still be watching. All I really hope for is a good game and a handful of humorous and/or innovative commercials. This year...I really don't know who will win. Nor do I have a favorite. Growing up an Eagles fan, it's hard for me to root for the Giants. And then...New England and three points, man. Not sure this is the best possible matchup for the NFL, but it's in the top three - two storied franchises with large and passionate national fan bases, rematch from a few years ago... Should make for good ratings.

This year, we'll be at home. We'll do the Pathfinder game in the afternoon, and have chili and sauce-your-own-wings for the game. If you wanna come by, you're welcome to do so, just lemme know.

In the meantime, here's a few polls for you to fill out if the mood so strikes you.

[Poll #1815501]
...and here I am, pounding my fingers on a keyboard and my head on my desk.

In other words, it's Monday. Hey, how the hell are ya?

So, it's been almost 2 weeks since I last blathered at ya. Been busy in that time. Between the getting ready for the holidays and putting in about 12 extra hours at work, I've been busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest. So then, a quick bullet list.
  • Me: Doing OK. Trying to not think about [livejournal.com profile] mousecat0's upcoming surgery. Yeah, I know, it's routine. They probably do tens of thousands of them a day. But still - it's surgery, and there's always a risk. So, I try not to think about it. Otherwise ok, if somewhat tired last week from putting in extra time to cover the time I'll be taking off for the surgery. Had a bit of a revelation last week...but more on that later.
  • Family: Doing well. [livejournal.com profile] mousecat0 is off some of her meds in preparation for the surgery. Everyone's been busy with schoolwork and holiday prep; it's sometimes hard to stay focused.
  • What we've been doing. Well, since the last real update...
    • Went to parent-teacher conferences
    • Went to [livejournal.com profile] stoooooooo's and [livejournal.com profile] ginabeth's place for family, food, and football.
    • Did the Thanksgiving baking (4 loaves of pumpkin bread, 3 cornbread rounds, pumpkin pie, pear cranberry pecan pie, chocolate pie, thanksgiving sugar cookies)
    • Did the Thanksgiving cleaning (well, a lot of it, anyway)
    • Finished the Thanksgiving shopping
    • Did some Christmas shopping.
    Blearg.
  • Gaming: You may have noticed a lack of gaming listed. I think, though I'm not certain, that the lack of gaming, whether tabletop or electronic, is one of the reasons behind some of my depression of late. Gaming is far and away one of my favorite things to do, and I haven't really done any lately. No fault or blame here, just the way life has worked these last few months. Once I realized that, I tried to get myself to do something, even if it's just noodle around on WoW for a while. Haven't been able to. Too much to do. Must work on this.
  • Work: Still no word on the contract award. Still feel about 99% certain I'll have the same job come Jan 1, but about 85% likely that it'll be with a different company (in other words, I'll still be here, but someone else will be signing the checks). We shall see.
  • New Year's: Yes, we will be doing the Open House this year. Saturday and Sunday. official announcement and eVite to go out tonight, I hope.
  • Food Network shows: I liked Food Network Live this year. It gave me one or two ideass to work with. Also, the Swedish Chef made an appearance. What's not to like? Also appreciated the new Good Eats Thanksgiving special. Yum.
OK, I need to clean up and head for home. Got a 12 hour day tomorrow, and need to make some spiced pears and cranberry apple ginger chutney tonight.

Once again, I'd like to take a moment to remind all of you of why we do this. Yeah, the food is good and the pies better, but this is a time for family and to give thanks for the blessings in our lives. In all the hustle and bustle, let us not lose sight of that.

I remind you all to have a good day. The very fact that you woke up on the proper side of the grass this morning makes it a great start to a good day.

Growing up in South Jersey, Pittsburgh was always the AFC team it was ok to root for, and I admit to a soft spot in my heart for the Packers (unless they're playing the Eagles, then they can all burn). I think that this is the "Dream Game" for the NFL - two storied franchises with large and passionate national fan bases. Should make for good ratings.

As I usually do, I find myself extremely thankful for a number of things this year:
  • [livejournal.com profile] mousecat0, B, & F.
  • My job and [livejournal.com profile] mousecat0's job
  • My clueless end-users
  • My in-laws.
  • My family
  • The fact that I have a roof over my head, food on my table, and clothes on my back.
  • And perhaps most especially, my friends, whether near or far, whether they read this drivel I write or not. (and that does mean all of you)


Even though Thanksgiving has come and gone, I would ask one thing from each and every one of you. Please, try to remember to be thankful for each and every blessing in your life every day. Let the people in your life know you are thankful for them. Let us not give thanks only on Thanksgiving, but every day.

And I am thankful for all of you. Believe me when I say that even when I don't comment, I am reading what you write, and rejoice with you in your triumphs, and weep with thee in thy sorrows.

If you're worried and you can't sleep
Just count your blessings instead of sheep
And you'll fall asleep counting your blessings.

--Bing Crosby, Count Your Blessings (Instead of Sheep)
Hey there! So, how the hell are ya?

I'm doing fairly well. Getting over a cold that my son brought home. I love my kids, and I'm so proud that they freely share. I just wish they'd stop sharing their mini-plagues with the family.

*sigh*

Anyway, here I am and there you are and here we are and isn't it a loooooooovely day! OK, no it's not, given that it's cool and rainy. But we need the rain here in the DC area, so I can live with it.

So, not much has happened since the last time I wrote in here. We went to AnimeUSA for Friday & Saturday. [livejournal.com profile] mousecat0 & B had a good time wandering around and going to various panels. F & I kinda camped out with a bag of games and played them with each other and random passers-by. Played/Taught several rounds of Castle Ravenloft. Also played Ninja vs. Ninja, Munchkin Impossible, Frag! Gold, and one or two other things. Had lunch in the Maid Cafe. We left around 7 on Sat because I was really starting to feel run down.

I have to say that I saw only a minimal amount of body-inappropriate outfits at AnimeUSA. This is a good thing. I had a longer writeup, but decided to cut it because I know y'all don't need that. The only one that disturbed me a bit was the dude dressed as some anime chick who had long, dark, curly chest hair poppoing up over the top of his bra. Looked like some sort of cthuloid tentacle thing waving around in the breeze.

Watched the Sam Kinison Tribute on Comedy Central Sat night. The man still makes me laugh after nearly 25 years.

Watched my beloved Philadelphia Eagles lay the smackdown on the Redskins last night. It was...painful to watch at times. Loved Sonny Jurgenson's line "They were Vicked".

Need to finish up Thanksgiving shopping on Saturday. Need the fresh fruits, veggies, herbs, and other stuff.

Actually, I need to put up a Do-List for myself. Get my shit together.

But, before I do that, I want to take a moment to remind all of you of why we do this. Yeah, the food is good and the pies better, but this is a time for family and to give thanks for the blessings in our lives. In all the hustle and bustle, let us not lose sight of that.

I remind you all to have a good day. The very fact that you woke up on the proper side of the grass this morning makes it a great start to a good day.

Peas. Out.
This one is for all my friends who follow the Washington DeadRedskins:

We, the faithful fans of the Philadelphia Eagles, are not even remotely surprised at what Donovan McNabb is doing. The fact that you may be surprised means only that you weren't paying attention in the last few years.

I like McNabb. I think he did a lot of great things both on and off the field in Philly. But he just could never seem to get out of his own way to enter that top tier.

I remember after the Super Bowl loss to the Patriots, there was joke going around that McDonalds was going to introduce a new sandwich called the McNabb: The guy behind the counter would either throw it just in front of you or just behind you.
So, it's been farrrrr too long since I've done any update of substance.

So here we go. Get some coffee (or beverage of choice) and get comfy.
  • Administrivia: Please give a warm welcome to the three newest readers of this little slice of insanity: [livejournal.com profile] magsmom, [livejournal.com profile] _luaineach, and [livejournal.com profile] onezumi. Pull up a chair and help yourself to somethin' to drink. I generally suggest that people read this post if they want to know more about me.
  • Me: Doing well. I'm in good spirits. Hallowe'en is done, and the planning and prepping for Thanksgiving begins in earnest. I'm feelin' good and looking...well, like myself. Which is to say that I'd lose to Godzilla in a beauty contest, but hey, that's normal, so it's all good. In early to work this AM since the kids are off from school (Teachers Professional Day) and I can drop F off at his after-school care as early as 0700. I'll use the time towards my day off for AnimeUSA later in the month.
  • I probably don't need to say this to y'all, but it bears repeating: Please, tomorrow, go out and vote. Thank you.
  • Family: Well, everyone is doing pretty well. The kids are on a bit of a sugar high (Duh!) and are enjoying the long weekend. [livejournal.com profile] mousecat0 & B are gearing up for NaNoWriMo; I'm staying out of the way. F was dealing with some sorta low-end stomach bug about half the weekend. No barfing, just stinky gas, gas pains, mild nausea, and the runs.
  • NaNoWriMo: To everyone who is participating, good luck to you.
  • Work: We seem to have passed the first milestone. Now for the next big one. After that, things calm down a bit. We hope.
  • What we've been doing: Well, lessee, it's been over a month since last update. EEP! OK, by week then:
    • Sept 27 - Oct 3: Cleaned up from painting the Living room. Went to MD Renaissance Faire. Went to [livejournal.com profile] stoooooooo & [livejournal.com profile] ginabeth's for football and to celebrate [livejournal.com profile] luvmomh's birthday. [livejournal.com profile] mousecat0 made an awesome tiramisu for the shindig.
    • Oct 4 - 10: My car wouldn't start after getting cup of coffee (connection to starter motor was bad). Total was ~$130. Touched up paint in LR. Replaced trim around front door (had to do the whole thing because I couldn't find matching trim). Cleaned front of condo. Brought Halloween decorations out of storage.
    • Oct 11 - 17: Enjoyed day off on the 11th. Car needed jumpstart at work on the 15th. Bought battery for my car and tires for [livejournal.com profile] mousecat0's car. Decorated front of condo.
    • Oct 18 - 24: Not much other than take long weekend to go to NJ to visit lighthouses (which will get it's own post).
    • Oct 25 - 31: Watched horror movies. Had car starter die on me. Had starter replaced. Took F. Christmas List shopping. Gave out candy.
  • Gaming: Not too much, not even WoW. I logged on a few times to try for the Headless Horseman's mount, but never got it.
  • What's coming up: Well, lessee, this week, we're going out to dinner on Thursday to celebrate the birthday of [livejournal.com profile] mousecat0 and her sister, then grocery shopping on Saturday for Thanksgiving dinner (the menu for which gets it's own post). Also need to defrost the freezer and rearrange and clean out the fridge. Lots of food coming in. Need space. The following weekend is AnimeUSA, which, while we are attending, we will no longer be staying at the hotel (see auto repairs above). If we can get and keep things cleaned up, then one or more of us may go up to [livejournal.com profile] stoooooooo & [livejournal.com profile] ginabeth's for football on the Sunday before Thanksgiving.
  • Horror flicks: My son F. doesn't care for them, neither does [livejournal.com profile] mousecat0. My daughter B & I watched several over the last few days, most of which she hasn't seen before. I had the joy of introducing her to:She seemed to enjoy them, and jumped at the end of Carrie. Like I still do. And I've probably seen it two dozen times.
I think that's all I've got for now.

Remember: You woke up on the proper side of the grass this morning. By definition, that makes today a good day.

Peas. Out.

Convention Countdown
Anime USA: 11 Days!
Yeah, I lost track again. Go me. :rolls eyes:

To be fair, I have been busy since last I wrote here. Like, wrote for real.

How busy? Well, I'll detail that...
under the cut )
Because random titles are fun!

So, yeah, trying to get back into a more regular posting rhythm. I have a few thoughts I wanna get down on paper (screen?) while I have some lunch break time left.

But first, some administrivia: Welcome to [livejournal.com profile] willowdrea & [livejournal.com profile] lindalee_! [livejournal.com profile] willowdrea & I found each other through [livejournal.com profile] snipeyhead setting up a Google group thingie, while [livejournal.com profile] lindalee_ & I found each other from a friending frenzy she was hosting a day or so ago. So welcome to the porch!. Pull up a chair and help yourself to somethin' to drink. I generally suggest that people read this post if they want to know more about me.

I'm gonna jump around a bit here. I'll try not to lose you.

I've spent part of the last day trying to hammer out my demo schedule for Origins. Mopstly, I'll be doing demos of Chez Geek, Chez Goth, and Chez Cthulhu. I'm trying not to do too much, as I'd like to do at least one event with each kid, and maybe something we can all do together.

Some of you who have been here a bit may remember that we took part in the 2009 NJ Lighthouse Challenge (you can read about our adventure here). We were going to do the Maryland one, but opted out due to illness and weather. Our plan was to try to do it this year, but I just learned from the website that due to state budgetary issues combined with the fact that neither the Long Island nor New Jersey Challenges would be held this year, they chose to also not hold it this year, instead looking towards 2011 as the next one. A bit of a disappointment, to be sure, but understandable.

Supposed to visit NJ this weekend for a combined birthday party for B and my brother [livejournal.com profile] matt3485; we shall see if that happens. Mostly, it will depend on the weather. Specifically, the snow. Yay.

So the Eagles have let Brian Westbrook go. I can't say I'm surprised. Salary Cap issues aside, he spent as much or more time off the field as on it over the last two seasons. I'm sorry to see him go, and I wish him nothing but the best. Thank you, sir, for your time with the Eagles and the thrilling plays you made. Thank you for everything you did for the city of Philadelphia and Eagles fans everywhere.

I hate my work computer on Thursdays. That's the day when the full AV scan is done. Slows this damn machine down more than molasses in Montana in February.

I remind you all to have a good day. The very fact that you woke up on the proper side of the grass this morning makes it a great start to a good day.
Short version: We're alive, we're ok, we're dug out, we're sore.

That's the way it is for now, kids.

Peas. Out.
Hey there, folks! Hope you're all doing well!

So, here's what has transpired since having seen you last.
cut for rambly length )
As I usually do, I find myself extremely thankful for a number of things this year:
  • [livejournal.com profile] mousecat0, B, & F.
  • My new job, and the people who "prompted" me to find it
  • My clueless end-users
  • My in-laws.
  • My family
  • The fact that I have a roof over my head, food on my table, and clothes on my back.
  • And perhaps most especially, my friends, whether near or far, whether they read this drivel I write or not. (and that does mean all of you)

When did that happen?

Oh well.

Nothing overly exciting happened since I last spoke at ya.

Well, almost nothing. Seems that on Friday night, [livejournal.com profile] mousecat0 and the kids were on their way home when a deer decided to cross the road in front of her. And while she missed that one, she was not so lucky with the five more that followed. Or, more precisely, the last one or two. Fortunately, no one was hurt (except the deer) and there was minimal damage to the TrailBlazer (front grill, driver's side headlight mount). Insurance will cover the repair (minus the deductible). We went to the USAA-recommended body shop yesterday; they ordered the parts and we'll drop the car off tomorrow night. I'll be taking the metro to and from work until we get the car back.

Otherwise, as I said, not much going on. Did the Thanksgiving shopping on Saturday. Also got the main course for Christmas eve dinner as Giant had frozen geese for sale. Damn thing cost me more than the 2 turkeys I bought. Oh well.

Made chili on Saturday for the family chili cookoff on Sunday. It came out great. Shame that the Eagles lost to the Chargers, though. I think that a combination of too many injuries and talented but inexperienced rookies is going to cost us a run at the playoffs this year, though I could be wrong.

Watched the Dear Food Network: Top 10 Thanksgiving Problems Solved special on Monday. While I was glad to see that Ted Allen was using the AB turkey frying rig, I wanna know who brought back that corpse they named Claire Robinson. Dude, she was disturbing. It took me half the show to figure out why she bothered me so - she looked like a damn zombie. The dead were alive and trying to remake green bean casserole on Food-f-in-Network! Also, I don't remember who the hell it was that did this, but some idiot took a shot at Ted Allen because he was "afraid of hot oil". I don't need to tell all y'all how many fires are started every freaking year because people didn't exercise sufficient caution and common sense when frying their turkey. Bad scripting, Food Network. Overall, it didn't suck, but it didn't help or inspire me either.

Right now, we have our "Do list" of what needs to happen when for the next week or so.
so as not to bore people )
Is it busy? Yes. Absolutely. Will I enjoy every minute of it where I'm not at work? Most likely.

This is where and when the memories are made, folks. These are the times I treasure.

But before the rushing around and silliness starts in earnest, I would remind all of you of why we do this. Yeah, the food is good and the pies better, but this is a time for family and to give thanks for the blessings in our lives. In all the hustle and bustle, let us not lose sight of that.

I remind you all to have a good day. The very fact that you woke up on the proper side of the grass this morning makes it a great start to a good day.

Once again, with the only host that hasn't sucked since Dennis Miller, [livejournal.com profile] grayhawkfh!

How the hell are ya?

I'm actually doing better than I have in a bit.

But first, some administrivia: Welcome to [livejournal.com profile] snipeyhead! She was a guest on Angry Mac Bastards a while ago, and I started following her on Twitter. Now, she has chosen to follow me on LJ as well! So welcome!. Pull up a chair and help yourself to somethin' to drink. I generally suggest that people read this post if they want to know more about me.

Ok, I think that's all I have for now.

Remember: You woke up on the proper side of the grass this morning. By definition, that makes this a good day.

Peas. Out.
Which probably translates to "More BS than ever before"!

Hiya folks. Yeah, it's been a while since I updated. And a large part of the reason for that is illness. As in, the whole family was knocked on it's collective ass last week. Trust me when I tell you that the only ones who were happy about that were the makers of Tylenol Cold medication.
Placed behind a cut for...(insert witty statement here) )

YAY!!!

Man, I know I've probably driven this point into the ground, but I do so love this time of year.

The temperatures are nice and cool. The fall and halloween decorations are going up.

[livejournal.com profile] mousecat0 made an apple pie earlier this week.

Football is in full swing.

So, how ya doin'? Hopefully good.

Things have been a bit busy this week, but manageable.

But first, some administrivia: Welcome to [livejournal.com profile] morlith, who found me through a friending frenzy a week or two ago. Pull up a chair and help yourself to somethin' to drink. I generally suggest that people read this post if they want to know more about me.

More randomosity in titling...

For a brief terrifying second, I considered trying to do this post in LOLCat, then realized that before I got halfway through the first paragraph I'd probably be trying to gouge out my brainstem with a titanium spork. You have been spared...

So, hey, how are ya?

Me, I'm not doin' badly. I'm a bit tired, but that's more because I got up earlier than normal to get here early today. So, this might get long, but I'm a bit pressed for time, so a Bullet-List-O'-Doom is going behind the cut.
Yes, this cut right here )
However, I wanted to take a moment to talk aboutAngel Food Ministries. Especially since there are a number of people who read this who are, for whatever reason, not in the best financial shape right now. Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational organization dedicated to providing food relief and financial support to communities throughout the United States. The program began in 1994 with 34 families in Monroe, Georgia (between Atlanta and Athens), and has grown to serve hundreds of thousands of families every month across 35 states.

There are no qualifications, minimums, income restrictions, or applications. Everyone is encouraged to participate.

The base package is $30. Here's the October 2009 menu:
  • 1.5 lb. New York Strips Steaks (3 x 8 oz.)
  • 1 lb. Steak Fajita Strips
  • 2 lb. Chicken Stir Fry Skillet Meal
  • 1 lb. Lean Ground Beef
  • 1.5 lb. Breaded White Meat Chicken Tenders
  • 1 lb. avg. Center Cut Ham Steaks (Hickory Smoked)
  • 1 lb. Bake or Fry Fish Sticks (32 sticks)
  • 1 lb. Pasta
  • 25 oz. Marinara Sauce
  • 1 lb. Frozen Baby Lima Beans
  • 1 lb. Frozen Mixed Vegetables
  • 2 lb. bag Fresh Apples (8-10 ct.)
  • 10 ct. Flour Tortilla Wraps
  • 32 oz. 2% Shelf Stable Milk
  • Dozen Eggs
  • Dessert

The food is good stuff; plus, they have additional specials which can be ordered as well. We've been participating for over a year. We don't get preached at. We don't get looked down on. It's a good way to help make ends meet. Go to the website and check it out.

Hm. I guess that wasn't as long as I was expecting.

So, welcome to the start of another glor-ee-ous work week. OK, so it's half way through the start, but what the hell. My blog, my rules, I win.

And remember that worrying about H1N1 will do more to shorten your lifespan than the actual flu will.

Hey, happy Friday Eve Day! Hope everyone is doing well. I'm doing reasonably well this morning. A little sleepy, but that's in large part because I haven't gone to sleep before 1 am either of the last two nights. Oh, it's all my own damn fault, so no sympathy requested or required, just explaining where I'm at.

So, how about a quick bullet list o' doom!

  • Family: [livejournal.com profile] mousecat0 is still trying to kick her cough. She's spending the next 4 work days at one of the buildings she manages overseeing some work being done. Words can't express how thrilled she is. Kids still enjoying school, but not homework. We're all a little disappointed by the turnaround in the forecasted weather for the weekend, but figure that it happened specifically because we canceled our plans. That's ok, because we have other...
  • Weekend plans: Friday night is F.'s first Cub Scout Pack Meeting, which is also a picnic being held at one of the local parks. Saturday, we'll do a bit of cleaning, then some shopping for fall/halloween decor and some other organizational stuff. On the way home, we'll get some pizza and then make a movie night out of it. Probably start with Jason and the Argonauts and go from there. Sunday, F & I are helping staff a table to recruit more cub scouts around 10:45 am, then we'll head up to [livejournal.com profile] stoooooooo & [livejournal.com profile] ginabeth's for football. Speaking of which...
  • Football: Ah yes, the season has started. And not one week into the season, and my beloved Philadelphia Eagles are already in a bind. Yeah, we beat the Carolina Panthers, but our franchise QB, Donovan McNabb, got hurt. And with Vick suspended for at least one more week, it's no wonder that the team signed Jeff Garcia. They had to. They needed someone to back up Kevin Kolb. Whatever. I don't have much hope that they will beat the New Orleans Saints, but we shall see. In other football news and thoughts:
    • I think that the loss of Brian Urlacher will have a bigger effect on the Chicago Bears defense than the loss of Troy Polamalu (doo doo dedoo doo) will on the Pittsburgh Steelers Defense.
    • Anyone who didn't see this coming from T.O., raise your hand. ::looks:: Yeah, that's what I thought. No hands.
    • Looking at the weeks games, I don't see many compelling ones:
      • Steelers at Bears: Good defense on both sides; expect this to be a defensive struggle
      • Raiders at Chiefs: This could decide who ends up last in the NFL
      • Vikings at Lions: How will rookie Matt Stafford do against an actual defense?
      • Patriots at Jets: Same thing, substitute Mark Sanchez for Stafford.
  • Gaming: Played some WoW over the last two nights. Some guild drama occurred in my absence. Otherwise, I still seem to be able to play my Retadin well.
  • It seems that an fair number of you want me to perform experiments on myself in the name of "Science". Fine. So be it. The orders for the Dungeons & Dragons Soda and the M:tG soda are placed. Anyone want to help with the testing?
  • X-Entertainment has begun their annual Halloween Countdown!!! Check it out for all kinds of Halloween Fun!
  • Speaking of Holidays, I'm starting to collect recipes that sound interesting for use with Thanksgiving dinner. I need to test them before then. Maybe I should do a bunch and invite people for tastings...
OK, I think that's all for now. I need to go change out backup tapes.

Hi folks. How are ya.

Me, I've been busy.

I’ll say the same thing here I’ve said elsewhere:

As much as I despise what Vick did, I would encourage everyone to remember that he, like the rest of us, is human. As such, we occasionally foul up.

Just sayin’, is all…
