In the past...

Last week was one of the worst weeks ever for me. Last weekend was one of the best. Thank you for making my life wonderful Hannah! I love you!

It's New Years Eve in Times Square!

At least it should be as fast as I dropped the ball at work today. I'm not going to get into it but this is not going to be a fun one to fix.

And to make matters worse, I have the feeling I'm going to be hung over tomorrow. Just my luck.

Here's to the weekend, you can't come soon enough.

You must be French because you're a peein'.

I had to be 10 or 11 years old. We lived in Charleston and it was our 2nd house on the Naval Base. There was a playground right behind our house. Pretty convenient when you're a kid. Swings, slide, merry go round, you name it. It had everything. Except a bathroom.

Now yeah, my house was right there, but come on. If I go inside I might have to do some chores, or stay inside because dinner is almost ready. Screw that. I'm out playing. The point is, I didn't want to go in the house.

On the other end of the park there was a large electrical box, or as we called it, "The Green Box". Perfect. My target was scoped out. (Ladies, that's what guys do. We pee on stuff.) So I moved to the back side opposite of our house. That way I was safe from view.

Perfect time for mom to come check on me. I think the conversation went something like this.

"Michael, what are you doing over there?"


"Well then come over here."

"Okay, one second."

"Are you peeing?"

"No." (Because I had finally finished. So technically not a lie.)

*Mom walked around and saw the "design" I made peeing on the side of the Green Box. And I was sent to my room.

I'm pretty sure it was more for the lying than the peeing, if I had to guess. But the point was to not go in the house. Guess I missed the mark on that one. Well, I guess they can't all be winners. :)

These are not the droids you're looking for.

We finally treated ourselves to a much needed phone upgrade. W1's battery went out about 6 months ago and we brought it into the store. They told us we were eligible for an upgrade. At this point I politely asked "About that, when does our contract end with you?" He understood and went in the back to see if they had any batteries for our antique phones. (The contract ended in April.)

After much research (sorry I was ignoring everyone on that visit) I decided the droid was the phone I wanted. We waited until we bought the house (changing phone plans shows up on your credit or some nonsense) and fixed the bumper on "She who is of Thunder and Lightning", them moved on to the phones.

All I can say is, BEST PURCHASE EVER! This phone is tha shit! There are apps for everything. One app I installed uses the camera as a barcode scanner, then searches online and compares prices. We are going to the Verizon store today to see if they can transfer our numbers from the old phones to the new. While we are there I'm going to grab a case cover, or car charger or something, and bring it to the register. When the checker scans it and tells me the price, I'm gonna scan it, tell him how much cheaper I can get it on amazon, and put it back. Because I'm just that kind of guy.
