Tagged, and in a nick of time!

Cause I got nothing but more stupid videos in the queue, and I am sure you are all sick to death of those! Johnny Yen tagged me with the "Meaningless Meme." 1. Five names you go by: a. Chris b. Dad c. J.C. (Navy buddies shortened J. Christopher to JC) d. Snowman (My old Navy call sign) e. Sky-Dad (around these parts...) 2. Three things you are wearing right now: a. Sweats b. Thick socks, because it is cold here today c. A stupid grin 3. Two things you want very badly at the moment: a. Money to pay off bills b. Time to myself 4. Three people who will probably fill this out: That is just wide open, anybody up for it? 5. Two things you did last night: a. Caught up on some old TiVo stuff, Terminator, Sarah Conner. b. Personnel hygiene for Skyler, we won't get into it unless you want to know about life with a kid with CP... I may just start up the life with Skyler series, who knows? 6. Two things you ate today: a. Eggs and toast b. Coffee 7. Two people you last talked to on

Snoop drops by the Martha show to make some mashed potatoes!

Who thought this would be a good idea?

Alice's Restaurant

It's not Thanksgiving until you have heard the song! In case you haven't heard it on the radio today, a nice collage of live performance and clips from the movie. But mostly, just to get the fat chick off of the top of my blog!

ObligatoryThanksgiving Post

Things you can only say around the family on Thanksgiving: 1. Talk about a huge breast! 2. Tying the legs together keeps the inside moist. 3. It's Cool Whip time! 4. If I don't undo my pants, I'll burst! 5. Whew, that's one terrific spread! 6. I'm in the mood for a little dark meat. 7. Are you ready for seconds yet? 8. It's a little dry, do you still want to eat it? 9. Just wait your turn, you'll get some! 10. Don't play with your meat. 11. Just spread the legs open and stuff it in. 12. Do you think you'll be able to handle all these people at once? 13. I didn't expect everyone to come at once! 14. You still have a little on your chin. 15. How long will it take after you stick it in? 16. You'll know it's ready when it pops up. 17. Wow, I didn't think I could handle all of that! 18. That's the biggest one I've ever seen! 19. How long do I beat it before it's ready? And don't forget to occasionally push away f


Does anybody out here watch Supernatural? It's on UPN, and I love it. From IMDB: After the mysterious disappearance of their father, two brothers seek out and combat paranormal and supernatural events to figure the meaning linking their mother's death whom was killed years earlier by a mysterious demon. I know it sounds a bit cheesy, but it really is good. The guys that play the two brothers, Dean and Sam, are excellent, and one recent episode deals with a ghost that attaches itself to Dean. The premise is that the ghost eventually causes the host to die from fright, and the host becomes more and more scared of everything. Dean winds up sleeping in his car, because he is afraid of heights and the hotel room they are in is on the 4th floor. Sam finds him laying in the seat of the car air drumming to music. Turns out at the end of the show, they put in an outtake of Jensen Ackles getting a little carried away during filming.

When the parody is better than the original

Vikki at Bells On had this great post about Beyonce and her new music video: Bells On: Nacho Marriage I had to show you the parody on SNL if you missed it. Justin Timberlake should just stick to doing SNL gigs... You have to be a bit patient for this video to show up, it is a download from a slow site.

Dave Barry's colonoscopy journal

Dave Barry is so damn good it shouldn't be legal! My buddy Russ forwarded this to me... I called my friend Andy Sable, a gastroenterologist, to make an appointment for a colonoscopy. A few days later, in his office, Andy showed me a color diagram of the colon, a lengthy organ that appears to go all over the place, at one point passing briefly through Minneapolis . Then Andy explained the colonoscopy procedure to me in a thorough, reassuring and patient manner. I nodded thoughtfully, but I didn't really hear anything he said, because my brain was shrieking, quote, 'HE'S GOING TO STICK A TUBE 17,000 FEET UP YOUR BEHIND!' I left Andy's office with some written instructions, and a prescription for a product called MoviPrep,' which comes in a box large enough to hold a microwave oven. I will discuss MoviPrep in detail later; for now suffice it to say that we must never allow it to fall into the hands of America 's enemies.

What? Another video from Sky-Dad?

I just re-discovered this after going through some crap on an old computer in the basement. Long story short, I was trying to find an old printed electronic receipt out of thousands of files... Yeah, my life is that exciting! Anywho, this link was sitting around collecting dust and it directed me elsewhere and I finally found the video on the youtubes. It might be the silliest thing ever produced, or it might be brilliant, I'll let you decide. But I guarantee, the tune will be stuck in your head until you purge it with some old Aerosmith or Deep Purple. I give you, Cows With Guns:

Dads Night

Johnny Yen has tagged me with a new meme-- the "Dad's Night" tag. The premise is that the wife is out that night and it's just you and the kids hanging out. What movies would you watch with them? This is tough for me to do because Skyler really doesn't like movies. Movies, as well as most TV shows, tend to be too dynamic for his sensory system to handle. That is why he likes watching the news, Jeopardy, and things that are more constant. Even though the shows and the news are different each night, the studio set and what happens re the same. It gives him continuity and he doesn't get scared by something, thus bringing on a seizure. So I would spend the night watching some DVDs or old tapes of some of his favorite news people, or maybe some home movie type of videos when he was a young dude. Thanks for the tag JY, and I tag the two gentlemen who take care of my beer reviews and general hilarity, Doc and Ergo over at Social Zymurgy: The culture of beer .

Always check your kids homework

The assignment was to draw a picture of what mommy does for work... Mommy actually works at Home Depot, she was selling a shovel.

Your Friday Funny

Cup of Tea One day my mother was out and my dad was in charge of me. I was maybe 2 1/2 years old and had just recovered from an accident. Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a get-well gift and it was one of my favorite toys. Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought Daddy a little cup of 'tea', which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home. My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!' My Mom waited, and sure enough, here I come down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watches him drink it up. Then she says, (as only a mother would know.. :) 'Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water is the toilet?

There is no pleasing some women!

Back me up here guys, you try and try but it never is enough, right?

If you replace Mike Greenman with me, you get an idea of my dating life

Lunch with Kristi and 'Lil Obama

I had a nice lunch with GKL today, and she got to meet 'Lil Obama in person. He had been bugging me non-stop to set up a date with her, so I finally said yes just to get him off my back! But seriously, the guy was a tad out of control at the prospect of meeting her (who can blame him?) but on the ride up I had to put him in his place... Well dang it, the video cut off before you got to see me slap him off the dashboard...

Prepare to be bored!!

Last weekend was the trip my Navy buddy Russ and I took to Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada to take in the final air show of the season. It is called Aviation Nation and is huge, the second largest in the US behind the Oshkosh fly-in. This one is heavy on military hardware with tons of static displays on top of some top notch performances of military aircraft. We had a great time, driving out to Las Vegas from Denver and getting caught up during the 12 hour trip. It's funny how much we have in common. We came from completely different backgrounds, but both wound up working at the same company in Boulder many years ago and have both been in high tech since. Russ brought along a bunch of comedy CD's, and it was a fun way to pass the time while driving. My new favorite is Brian Reegan, check him out if you haven't already. So on to the show... Nellis is the home of the Air Force Thunderbirds. they were the headliners of the show, as they usually are. This year the team

New Windows!!

I have been reading blogs about all these fancy remodeling project that everyone is doing, and since I want to sit at the lunch table with all the cool kids, here are some pictures of the new windows we had put in. Notice the use of the phrase "had put in". If I have learned nothing else about myself, it is that projects that require more than my rudimentary concrete and framing skills are best left to those who understand that if something doesn't quite fit right, all you need to do is apply more force... So here is a shot of our bathroom, with the curtains removed and ready for the pro's from Dover to come and take out the old windows and put in the new. Understand now, this is a scene that we never saw, because we like to bath and shower without the rest of the neighbors who are 10 feet away watching. It's not that I am against nudity, I just hated all the pointing and laughing... So the curtains were permanently drawn. Here is the new scene. And here is a c

I am SUCH a winner!!

Hug a Veteran

Before I forget, I wanted to wish my brethren a Happy Veterans Day, and ask all to send out prayers/good vibes for those in harms way on this day.

Catch you all on the flip side

I am out of town until Monday evening, taking in a way cool air show at Nellis Air Force base in Nevada. Tons of military hardware out here with great demonstrations, it starts tomorrow morning. My old Navy bud Russ and I drove out today. I will post pictures to bore you all out of your wits later!

Well, OK. One more political post

But it is so good it needs to be shared.

Election is over! Back to the goofy shit...

From The New Yorker

A little history lesson about how tough it used to be to vote. Makes me feel like I don't deserve the privilage. Read the entire column here . Rock, Paper, Scissors How we used to vote. On the morning of November 2, 1859—Election Day—George Kyle, a merchant with the Baltimore firm of Dinsmore & Kyle, left his house with a bundle of ballots tucked under his arm. Kyle was a Democrat. As he neared the polls in the city’s Fifteenth Ward, which was heavily dominated by the American Party, a ruffian tried to snatch his ballots. Kyle dodged and wheeled, and heard a cry: his brother, just behind him, had been struck. Next, someone clobbered Kyle, who drew a knife, but didn’t have a chance to use it. “I felt a pistol put to my head,” he said. Grazed by a bullet, he fell. When he rose, he drew his own pistol, hidden in his pocket. He spied his brother lying in the street. Someone else fired a shot, hitting Kyle in the arm. A man carrying a musket rushed at him. Another threw a brick, kn


From Ad Critic magazine: The "Wassup" campaign and the Bush administration were unleashed on the American public roughly eight years ago. The former resulted in the sale of a lot of Budweiser, a fistful of ad awards and a cultural phenomenon. The latter, well, its effects are addressed in the newly launched Wassup08, a sequel from Charles Stone III produced through Believe Media. Stone, of course created the original short film about five friends and their catchy greeting. It was picked up by DDB Chicago in 2000 and was reinterpreted many times in an ongoing series of Bud spots directed by and starring Stone. Wassup08 reunites the original cast of characters to whom the intervening eight years have not been kind—instead of "watching the game, having a Bud," they are variously serving in Iraq, scanning the job listings and struggling with prescription drug costs. The "wasssuups" are still there but subdued or, in some cases, twisted into screams

A quiet day on the tubes

Chris over at Some Guys Blog mentioned that it is quiet out today. I agree, but my boss sent out a picture of her daughter dressed up as Sarah Palin that I think you all will agree she did a great job on.
