Mommy Milestones/More Poo
Friday, May 22, 2009
You know the mommy milestones right? You must be poo'd on, you must be puked on, you must be pee'd on and most likely all at the same time. I've met all those so far, but then there is this other one. The one that doesn't come up in polite conversation.

Last night the daughter was taking her bath and started doing the bend over and grunt thing. I knew it was coming, and froze. So what would you do in this situation?

Let her poo is the correct answer and then take her out. Wipe of the butt with toilet paper and she is all set! Then, of course, you have to fish the poo out of the water with a spoon. What else do you use for such a situation? Spoon looked good to me.


Here's an additional note - I'm now the #1 Google return for the search "poo filled assholes". Go me! 1 of my 2 readers got to my site with this search. Isn't that sweet?

Sports articles for the barely interested
Wednesday, May 20, 2009
I tried to find out how the Cleveland Cavaliers were doing in the playoffs which is about all I know about basketball. There are some playoffs happening right now or something. Anyway, I checked articles on 2 local paper sites and neither of them made any sense to me. Are they done yet? How much longer will it be until basketball is done for the season? Did the Cavs win already? I'm just interested enough to try to read 2 articles and not comprehend them at all, but then not try to look any further. Does anyone have any insight for me?

We need a website for the casually curious, non-basketball fans to check and see if it's over yet and who's winning.

Let me google that for you.
If you didn't already know it, I work in IT, at the help desk and no, I'm not in India. I get phone calls all the time asking me stupid questions that I turn around and go to Google to get the answer. I have been doing this for years. I'm getting paid to Google. What could be better than that?

My co-worker for the past 3 years would ask me a question that she doesn't know the answer to and I would turn around, type on my computer, turn back around and give her the answer. She finally got curious last year and asked what I was doing. I had to tell her the truth. I'm googling.

Google hasn't failed me yet. Every time someone asked me something I can't immediately recall, Google is there. When someone has some obscure question about hacking Windows, Google is there. When someone is encountering an error that doesn't make any sense, Google is there.

When someone calls me asking for the phone number to some other company that isn't our company (much like the call I just got and I still can't figure out what is wrong with people's fingers that they can dial a phone, but can't type Oh sure, just let me Google that for you.

Conversations with a 15 month old
Sunday, May 03, 2009
Riding in the car with the husband and my 15 month old yesterday was one of the funniest moments I've had in a long time.

TH (the husband): What goes woof?
TD (the daughter): ...
TH: What goes woof and has 4 legs?
TD: ...
Me: What goes woof, has 4 legs and is furry?
TD: ...
TH: What goes woof, has 4 legs, is furry and acts stupid?

I love her.
