You think you're so smart, mister?

I came across a little Mensa Test that Becky and I both did (part 1). She kicked my butt - but at least I'm cuter then her. Oh, no wait - I'm not.

The test is here http://www.intelligence-test.net/part1

There is also a follow up to it, supposedly a bit harder:


There is a brand new Movie Quiz. I took a quick look at this and it looks hard! (Scottie B will rock this!)

I love this guy! Numa Numa

Don't ask my why, but I can't get enough of this guy. He is from NJ, and posted this video on his blog about the song the internet named Numa Numa. In reality, the song is entitled "Dragostea Din Tea" by the Romanian pop band "O-Zone".

In just a few weeks, the video has received more than 1 million hits on one of gman's web sites and has even been featured on CNN, VH-1 and Today on NBC. Brolsma is more surprised than anyone about his world wide fame. "You people are crazy!" he wrote.

We're crazy? Riiight.

Fancy meeting you here!

Long time no blog. Lots to catch up on...

Look around, what do you think of my new digs? (hint hint - new template) It was time to get some new paint and a few sexy couches for you guys to sit on. I'm good like that. It's not an official blogger template, so please let me know if things look weird or links aren't working.

The world is so small! I am getting hair cut and my cell rings. Caller ID reads: Scottie B. I'll take this - a few more minutes until she takes me. "What's up Scottie?" we chat about work and why I haven't blogged. "Where are you?" Scott asks. "At the barber on Sullivan Trail." "Where you at?" I bark. (I know it's improper English - me no care)

"I'm on Sullivan Trail!" and at that moment I look out the window and there he is! Big as life on the phone talking to moi. Small freekin' world. Scott lives 28 miles away from me!!! I get such a kick out of things like that!!!! Reminds me of this day when Boom and I saw each other.

I take pictures, therefore I am

Did I ever tell you that a picture I took was published in a coffee table book? That's a story for another day.

On the right, you will see two new links under Photo Albums:

Ray and I spend 30 hours last weekend at the daycare. It needed it. We rock. I need a nap.

Here are the offspring from Valentine's Day. Beck made each one of them a shirt... so damn cute! So damn different from each other! I love it!

In one short week, Kaitlyn is pulling herself up to everything. The stairs, the tables, the bar. No wait, not yet - that was me.

I hate TIVO

TIVO makes me feel like I am a bad TV watcher.

Don't get me wrong: TIVO is the best damn gift I have ever received. It's an awesome gadget, and now I record every NASCAR event, and can pause live TV when the offspring are yelling about something.

I have about 15 shows with season passes. For those of you TIVOless - a season pass simply records every episode of that show. On my season pass list are:

Jay Leno
American Idol (shut up)
Ghost Whisperer (I get welled up)
Evening News
Fear Factor
NASCAR races
Mad TV
Dirty Jobs (love this)
Myth Busters
Sex in the City (Becky's. OK mine)

So, having a full time job, owning the daycare, being a Dad to 2 little angels, and a husband to an angel maker, I don't always have time to watch any shows.

Our TIVO is an 80 hour unit - so after a while, it has to delete shows to make room for others. This is where me hating TIVO comes in. I HAVE TO WATCH EVERY SINGLE SHOW. It's like it's my job... like I would waste money if I didn't get to see every damned show recorded!

And another small issue. Beck got behind a week on 24. That means that she hasn't seen 3 episodes including tonight's. I am being a good husband and waiting for her... but I can't wait much longer!! I haven't seen 24 in 2 weeks! I MUST WATCH CTU save planet Earth.

Street Chalk Artist

This is so cool! There are a few of these drawings (like the Coke bottle) that I really have a hard time telling they are drawings. Truly amazing!

Julian Beever is an English artist who is famous for his art on the pavements of England, France, Germany, USA, Australia and Belgium. via rense.com

This is the same drawing as above, except it's being viewed from the top...
