Saturday morning cartoons is the best time to blog

So it has been awhile as usual. I’m sitting here with my daughter Tara watching Garfield. Got to teach them the classics when they are young right?

So I started my new job. That’s a relief. No more stress about finances for a little bit. I work for Ricoh. Yes that Ricoh that makes the printers and copiers. However I have nothing to do with those. I work with a team that makes and supports the
quanp service.

It’s a cool little product kind of like dropbox but different. I do the customer support for it so I learn something new and fun. Now the interesting this is that Ricoh is a Japanese corporation. So naturally my entire team is people who have lived in the US for as little as 3 months. So communications are some times interesting to say the least. Although I am getting free Japanese lessons so spiffy bonus. Well that and the guys putting on their medieval armor to go do battle. My first thought was “Gee they take company softball serious around here.”

In other news Katie and I are still looking to move within the bay area. With the new baby on the way we could use some more space. And something about nesting… We are still looking for baby names as well. The list so far includes, in no particular order

1. Audrey
2. Lacie
3. Karyn
4. Corina
5. Sabrena
6. Sarena
7. Biscuits

Okay so I added the last one just now. But hey, couldn’t be any worse then Pear or Apple or any of those other weird Hollywood names.

I think that about sums up what’s going on in my life. Oh and I’ve decided to finally try world of Warcraft. Wish me luck and if you don’t here from me in a month you know why.

Strippers and In Laws

So I decided to be nice and digitize all of my Father in laws old home movie tapes. The first one was of some friend of their’s birthday party. Where there was a stripper. Did the whole bad cop routine and everything. I’m not really sure this was a good idea but we shall see.

Another of those inspirational borders

Although this isn’t so much inspirational as it is Sam having spent way too much time watching Elmo at 6 in the morning.
But if you have ever watched the show it sort of makes sense if you think about it. Especially since Elmo is always complaining and having the girls fix his problems.
An no I don’t take credit for the Elmo pimp artwork, someone else on the internets did that one.


Put in oven at 375 and wait 9 months

While driving home from the baby’s first doctor appointment..

Wife: Look at the beautiful baby. We do good work.
Me: I dunno
Wife: What do you mean?
Me: Well I don’t think I had that much to do with it really. Think about it… If life is like a box of chocolates then making a baby is like baking a cake, only you sent your husband to the store and he only brought back half the ingredients.
Wife: So if I did such a great job baking then how do you explain the fact that she was a week late?
Me: You burnt it.
