I am 35

by MrChrister

I have seen the good and bad side of life:

  • I am educated, but I have made silly mistakes
  • I have saved and lost considerable sums of money
  • I have succeeded at work, and I have failed at my job
  • I have owned a house, and lost it.
  • I have experienced a warm embrace from a friend, I know friends who have been violently attacked
  • I have found and lost love, only to find it once again
  • I have a child, and my world will never be the same.

I am a willful man. Each year older sees me less petulant and more willing to heed advice from my elders. Every birthday I learn more about what truly does and does not matter.

I have seen quite a bit. I have known of war, famine, disaster and sunny days. I have read many books, watched many movies, and listened to many many songs.

I have thought. Long, contemplative hours of thought. I have made strides towards wisdom. Sometimes I fail, other times I succeed.

I see more in every day things and actions and behaviors today than I did yesterday; I will see more still tomorrow.

For all of that, for all of those attempts at growing old as well as growing up. I learned something just now. Something I never knew before.

That bumper sticker that reads “Honk if you are horny” is a pun.

(I wonder when my brain actually stopped working…)


The Day My Eye Swelled Shut

by MrChrister

I rubbed my eye in the car on the way to work.  By the time I got there I could barely see.  The eye doctor said it was just an allergy.

New site for pictures and videos

by MrChrister

We have put up a new web page finally to display Ashley’s photos.  This new site has some neat tools like customizations you can use to fit your tastes.  Please notice the top bar on the page.  It will allow you to change the text size, widen the page or move the navigation to one side or the other.

It is planned to move most of the content of the old site into this new format.  The plan is to make searching and even commenting a lot easier.

Another tool is the feed section located in the navigation menu bottom.  With the feed, you can click on it and subscribe.  Subscribing to a feed means you can be alerted when new content is published.  One then assumes you can parlay that into noting the date of the last post and harass us about it.  We aim to please anyway.

This is Mary’s cat Ms Kitty. She is a filthy hairball who is the sort of reason people don’t have cats. But she is friendly for being a one-eyed jerkface
