New Blog

I've made the addition of a very nice blog. Okay, it's not very nice yet, but its owner is, and it has potential. MJ has a blog now, much like mine with links to everyone I know. It's just more pink, and doesn't have any DaVinci artwork.

Wedding plans are still going along nicely. I've finalized the engagement picture and announcement, and if I ever get around to getting them off to the printer's, you all will know for sure that we want you here, instead of just having to guess. I'm not really a jerk, I promise. I just am not as punctual as I should be.

I'm making this post from my brother's computer, as I am here watching his dogs, and I have noticed the Home, Insert, End, and Delete keys are not in their correct positions. It's wigging me out a bit. A couple of other keys are malfunctioning as well. I'm not trying to rag on his computer too much, but if anyone has an extra keyboard, and wants to find a good home for it, I know someone who could use it. Just let me know, and I'll make sure he gets it.

That's about it for now. MJ has to get up early for work tomorrow, and I have to get up at a sane hour, although still early, for work tomorrow.

Okay, I have seen the most amazing tool in the world. It is called a Fubar. I'm sure most of you are familiar with F.U.B.A.R. the acronym, now for the tool. It's something like a crowbar, except on one end it has this spike/jaw/gripping/hammer bit. I'm seeing where they came up with the name. I don't know what exactly one is used for, but I want one. If only I was one of those people with too much money, or if I could only think of a reasonable excuse.

In other news, I got caught behind a train. Not a big train. There were seven cars. Including the engine. I was at the far north end of a small city about an hour north of here. This was the middle of nowhere. I could see the tracks running off into the distance in both directions, and not a crossroad either way. This seven car barricade couldn't seem to find one of those bits to park on, just the few yards of track that I was planning on using. Eventually, the train moved, as they tend to, the gates went up, and traffic moved. It was my turn next, and the gates came down for no reason. I sat there for a bit longer, and the gates went up again.

I thought the whole thing was funny. I'm just glad I wasn't in a hurry, or a bad mood. I don't think I would have caught the humor in it. Really, it's almost too bad that the gates went back up. I almost had my excuse to buy a fubar.
