The Grand Fallacy

Having a great Monday (isn’t it sickening?), wrote my first man page today for the little C program I cobbled up. Linux rules! I realized this morning that I somehow completely missed a haircut appointment I had last Thursday. I guess it was because I haven’t been checking my appointments …

Eleya and I stayed up late last night to watch Dead Alive on IFC last night. It was without a doubt the goriest, funniest horror movie I have seen, ever. Hard to believe it’s by the same guy who directed the Lord of the Rings films. But we noted that …

The baby took her first steps on Thursday night, about 7 or 8 of them, to walk over to me from down the hall. It was pretty amazing! She’s turning into such a little person so fast. It seems like just yesterday I was afraid to hurt her when I …

He’s really good about giving me constructive criticism but he also gave me some very nice compliments on things he …

Good morning! Most people hate Mondays, but I don’t have too big a problem with them. It’s easier when you like your job. ? Well, the show went pretty well except for the whole “not singing” thing. My throat hurt the whole time. My wife told me something interesting the …
