Action Figure Logic

My kids have told me I look like Arn Anderson. For those who don't know, he's a former wrestler with WCW and maybe even some WWE if I recall correctly. I wasn't so sure about taking this as a compliment because, well, see for yourself: Hey, there are worse public figures for your kids to... Continue Reading →

Public Service Announcement

I don't know if everyone else already know this, and therefore I'm a dope, but I'm guessing some of you may be suffering the same fate I've suffered over the past year, so I wanted to pass along some helpful information. You see, I've been having this issue where my garage door opener has stopped... Continue Reading →

Couch Sitter

My daughter, Heather, will be in kindergarten this fall. Over the last few months she has said and done some things that have startled me. I suppose this happens to every parent. Every now and then we look at our kids and think, man, I remember when you were just a little meatloaf with eyes... Continue Reading →

Blind Ergomania

In a continuing effort toward ergonomics I started wondering if I should buy computer glasses. For those who don't know, they're glasses that gamers wear to block the blue rays from computer screens that hurt our eyes. After all, I've been sitting in front of a computer for work or hobby for oh, I don't... Continue Reading →


I've been on an adventure as of late. More of an obsession, if I'm being honest. You see, I have this little problem with getting old as hell--whoops, I mean--I have this little problem with ergonomics. A couple months back I noted that my right hand and wrist were sore pretty much all the time.... Continue Reading →

The Driest Show on Earth

So the weather's been fun, eh? Good times, good times. I know we're all in the same boat here, so complaining about it is lame, but when you've got a soon-to-be-three- and soon-to-be-five-year-old in the house and winter is ... this ... freakin' ... long ... it's like being locked in a madhouse with a couple...

Always the Hardest Way

There's a saying we use around my house--always the hardest way. It started out as a complaint. Whenever Nic and I or the kids were going through something we felt should be straightforward--something as trivial as paying a bill or going shopping with the kids, or something bigger like dealing with illness in the family...

I’m Almost Cool

I had my first celebrity moment yesterday. I went to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned, sat down in the chair, and noticed the dental hygenist looking at me strangely. I just kinda smiled, not sure what was up. It was time for my yearly x-rays, so she made me bite all the plates... Continue Reading →

Water Hates Me

I think maybe it's my family name or something, but water really hates me. It hated my dad, too. We're talking everything from being stranded on Lake Michigan in a speedboat that wouldn't run (with my dad going pale and desperately trying to wave down distant ships as we drifted farther and farther form shore),...
