Zio's Michelle is back from her trip to New Orleans, so we spent the evening at the mall and then had a late dinner at Zio’s. I think I would have been much happier staying home and cooking dinner. All this pointless shopping just drives me up a frickin’ wall. Isn’t once or twice a week enough shopping for anybody?

Spring Has Sprung

Spring has sprungSo why does it still feel like winter? It actually snowed for a few hours today. The temperature was in the upper 30’s so it melted as soon as hit the ground.
Baseball practice started last Friday, so we had a whole three-day gap between basketball season ending and baseball starting. The Gorillas are going with red, black, and white uniforms this year. 3 of our 4 regular pitchers aren’t coming back this year, so Jake may get a chance to try this year.
They’re playing the Jamie Foxx song “Slow Jams” on Hot103 at the moment. Great song. In the unlikely event that you are a regular visitor to my site, I’ll announce that the look of the site will be evolving over the next couple of weeks. I’m learning to use CSS and XHTML and as a project, I’m changing my geocities site and this blog use strict HTML and share a single external style sheet. Please let me know if the page looks crappy in your browser.

Car-riding Cat

Car-riding cat


Jill has been forcing the cat to ride with us since he was a kitten when I take her to school. Uncharacteristically for a cat, Riley now seems to enjoy the ride. The only part he has trouble with is sliding off the dashboard when I take a turn.

Go Wildcats!

Go Wildcats!Today was the second round of the playoffs for Jill’s basketball league. Jill scored one basket and made a few rebounds, but Spring Branch lost to Luff 29-7 to end the season with a record of 5-6. Here’s a picture of my dad and mom in the stands at Bridger Middle School.

My Sidekick Sucks

My Sidekick SucksI had spotty to non-existent data service from Danger and T-Mobile on my Sidekick for most of the last week, and now the built-in camera is jacked up too. There appears to be some sort of hardware defect where two cables can touch and short circuit if you put pressure on the wrong part of the bumper. I was testing the camera after getting it to work briefly this afternoon when I took this lovely picture of my messy desk. Obviously my office is in need of a good cleansing.
