It’s a….

Posted: May 2, 2009 in Baby, Daughter, Kristi

So I promised a blog Wednesday and I have to apologize for the fact that it’s not getting posted until today. I had a couple of phone calls I had to make before the end of the day and I simply ran out of time. That being said, let’s get right down to the nitty-gritty of this post. If I haven’t told you yet, I apologize for not having done so personally, but there are simply too many of you to have called personally.
If you haven’t already guessed by the title of this post, Kristi is pregnant. She’s between 20 and 21 weeks and we found out Tuesday the sex of our baby. Drum roll please… We’re going to have a Daughter! We’re more than excited that she’s healthy and getting bigger (the baby). We’ve got a few names that we’re leaning towards, but those for now will be held close to the vest. If you’ve got the cell, I might be inclined to share. Below is the best picture of the baby so far. We’d be glad to accept any and all gifts for our baby girl, so be generous! I kid. We can’t wait to meet her and I know that you can’t either. Here’s to a more fruitful year of blogging!


For those of you that don’t follow my church’s blog (it’s ok if you don’t, you just don’t love Jesus), I got to borrow John’s blog for a day and write about our upcoming Amor trip. You can check it out here, or simply click on the title of this particular entry. Enjoy!

Ode to my DVR

Posted: November 25, 2008 in Uncategorized

Recently I’ve realized just how spoiled I am to have a DVR. When Kristi and I first got married, we relished the opportunity to go on a trip and stay in a hotel that had cable. It was a whole new world (technically an old world) where we could watch our favorite shows of yesteryear and enjoy the new exciting things on cable. Well that excitement has worn off. Now every time that we go somewhere, it’s not nearly as exciting. Sure, some hotels throw you a bone and give you a flat screen, but what’s spoiled me is my DVR. I love that I can skip commercials if I record something. I was made painfully aware of how much I hate commercials Sunday night. 24:Redemption was a lot of fun, but the second hour bogged down with commercials. What a pain. Today, as I enjoyed a day off I realized that I’d watched almost everything there is to watch on my DVR (except for some of the shows my wife likes, like Gilmore Girls), and I thought maybe I ought to record more things…Why not? I have a hundred or so hours of recording time. But I won’t have time like this off during the day often, so taping more things means less hours with Kristi. Catch 22.

Sick of it!

Posted: November 2, 2008 in Uncategorized

I’m officially sick of this election. I’ve had enough of each of the candidates taking ridiculous shots at each other. I’m sick of people equating Obama with Islam and over emphasizing his middle name. I’m sick of people calling a vote for McCain a vote for Bush. I’m sick of people that don’t know a single thing about either candidate getting overzealous, and frankly retarded, about one candidate or another. Sarah Palin’s not an idiot, she was obviously smart enough to become Governor of Alaska.

I’m just sick of what politics in this country have become. All either side does is throw mud at each other (or in the immortal words of Mrs. Stump, they’re slingin’ hash). For once can’t we elect a candidate based on their ideas, and not on their skill as a hash slinger? I already voted, but not for McCain or Obama. I think they’re both terrible candidates, give me Colin Powell, give me anyone with a degree of integrity. Don’t even get me started on socialism. I’m done.


Price Cut

Posted: September 6, 2008 in Christmas, Halo 3, Kristi, Wii, Xbox 360

So I realize that the following blog is a long time in coming. And, I also realize that the following makes me a giant nerd. That being said, Xbox 360 is finally cutting its price, cue the whistling smiley face! I’ve waited it out, I even got a Wii for Christmas last year from my amazing wife Kristi! (Wii=AMAZING!!!) The graphical difference is definitely obvious between Wii and 360, but you can’t beat the Wiimote. The draw is, and will be Halo 3. I know, I’m almost a year behind in the Halo 3 craze, but we’ll see what happens. I’m excited with the possibility of a 360. Too bad this was a limited edition.

Foreign Oil

Posted: June 8, 2008 in Arlen Specter, Foreign Oil, Gas, Senators

It seems like foreign oil is going to bankrupt this nation unless something drastically changes. Wages have to increase at the sake of the consumer whose wages have to increase and it’s just a vicious cycle. I realize that that’s the economy that we’ve built, but with outsourcing we’re killing our own nation. We’re a cancerous people, killing the body that is this nation from the inside out. People can’t afford to pay their mortgages because their jobs are dissappearing and they’re having to pay over $4 a gallon to go anywhere. Why? Because Exxon Mobile needs to make a 60 Billion dollar profit. Yay for congressmen like Arlen Specter who is too concerned with whether or not a football coach cheated. Wouldn’t his time be better spent figuring out how to dig this nation out of the hole that we’ve dug ourselves into? Apparently not. God Bless idiotic Senators.

Youtube is a rad website. I appreciate the things you can find on there, such as sweet Chuck Norris videos, etc. But the things that people put on there crack me up. Like this guy, Cyrus Yazdani, who goes by the pseudonym “Buket” (I wonder if he realizes he spelled that wrong); good Ol’ Buket posted videos of himself tagging around LA. Here’s where it gets stupid: He had a warrant out for his arrest for crying out loud. I’m sorry but if there were warrants out for my arrest, posting videos of myself on YouTube committing a crime would be the last thing I would do. But then again, I have somewhat of a conscience. But I digress. Cyrus Yazdani, don’t eat too much bologna (if you dont get that Google Jim Gaffagin: your bologna has a last name and it’s Gaffagin).
