Me being a dork…

So we were in Las Vegas a little while back for my cousin’s wedding and Cisco was in town, so of course we couldn’t help ourselves when we saw the giant Cisco sign. Had to get a picture with it. Bryan got more adventurous than […]

Rebooting a car

What the hell. We bought a Honda Insight this year for the long haul treks to work, what I didn’t expect was that the car would need to be rebooted. Seriously. I’m driving along and XM stops working. Normally I’m not really worried about it, […]

I have a new addiction…

Not surprising I know, but I do.  I’m not great at video games, but I’m not the worst either.  I play my Wii and I like puzzle games… what surprises me is my fascination with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.  I played The Call […]

well doesn’t that just figure…

I grabbed my rollerblades out of the closet this morning, so that I could blade the river trail after work today. As I went to toss them onto the truck seat a piece of plastic fell to the ground.  I didn’t think much of it, […]
