I have been watching the SHIT out of the DNC!

(Consider it an early Christmas present)


Happy Birthday Capn’

Cap is the BIGGEST Springsteen fan I know, so it was only fitting that the Boss played in KC on his actual birthday!!!

The Thunderbirds were swooping around the neighborhood for the KC airshow… Loud jets make it tough to take an afternoon nap!

Did I mention that I now own Nerf Ping-Pong! … Well, I do and I am even more awesome because of it. GARAGE SALES RULE!!!


I think that work is slowing down a bit… Now that I do not feel like throwing myself out the window each night when I get home I think I will be a bit more interesting on the blog circuit.




Nerd Baseball News
The Falcons won the “Leo Invitational Tourney”… They edged the Boilers for the title in a dogfight of a championship series.


Album of the week
In case you didn’t know, the “album of the week” is one vinyl album that I bring into work each week and play on Friday morning.

    God, I wish we could do cakes like that in Sweden!
    Believe me, I’ve tried but it just wouldn’t work.
