Demon Bird Mothballs

This is my first post in quite a while. I have never been consistent in posting to this blog, though I probably think about posting at least three times a week. I have even started a post several times since my last activity, but never finished the job. Even as I have tried to write this post I have gotten distracted and it has been well over two hours since I started it. I do not really have anything exciting to say right now, but perhaps I can get back to it because I have a few updates to throw on here.

I will add one interesting thing. I love the NBA. This is not a hidden fact. Some of the players can be a bit...dense. Shawn Marion, previously of Suns fame decided to get a tattoo in Chinese characters down his leg. He wanted to get his nickname 'The Matrix' but he forgot to bring someone good at interpretation and instead ended up with something that roughly translated means "Demon Bird Mothballs". That is today's lesson, grammar is not only for English, and translation is not only for machine language.

One Month Down...

...215 to go!!

Tyler turns one month old today. This is his second Friday the thirteenth in as many calendar months as he has been alive. So far, however, good luck has prevailed over all of the situations we have found ourselves in as new parents. Jennifer is quite the workhorse. She is up all hours of the night, is awake all day, and still manages to rinse and repeat each day. I am very lucky that I have her. She does a good job of putting baby pics and things on her blog so I will spare you all of the womanly cuteness on mine.

The other day she mentioned something about how she wishes I would read the Twilight series. I have only one response to that:

This is a short & unfocused post. Deal with it.

Christmas Time

1) So many people get so excited about the holidays.
2) I have never been one of those people.

I understand the meaning behind the holidays. I get interested by historical facts surrounding them, but by and large I do not get filled up with these crazy sentimental feelings (not to say that sentimental feelings are crazy, it just seems like some people live for only Christmas) and I mostly feel like this is just part of winter. For the most part I think it is goofy that we pack so many of our holidays into a short period of time, I would much prefer to have them either spread out evenly, or to have them all bunched up in the summertime.

So all of the goes just to get me to this point; will having a child change my point of view? I am sure being a father will change many things. Call it a sneaking suspicion, but I think that holidays to come with be much more exciting and filled with more meaning once I have a little one running around.
