Memorial Day Cartoons

Filed Under: Life

I'm writing this with tears in my eyes and my nose is all stopped up from crying. I know, I know. I'm a dork. I figure it has something to do with Tucker being in the Navy and the chance he could still be sent somewhere across the pond but every time I see something about ...

Laptop Security Picture of Cara

Filed Under: Life
Cara and the webcam

Last week Klout gave me a subscription to GadgetTrak--an electronic security tracking program. The program accesses your webcam every so often and grabs a shot of whatever is on the other end of the webcam. Then it emails you a report of where your laptop--or whatever electronic--is hanging out and the image. Initially it freaked me ...

Shadows of the Damned May 27th Screens

I wish I had a press release or something to go along with these but all I have is some pretty pictures. My favorite of this lot is the 2D shot; it reminds me a bit of The Secret of Kells but with more dead stuff.

Dan Lepard’s Starter and a No-Knead Sourdough Bread

Filed Under: Food and Drink, Recipes

I would love to be able to show you a picture of the bread I baked yesterday but for one thing, the bread is all gone. For another, the bread ended up looking rather homely due to the fact I didn't take into account the amount of time required to do the recipe properly. Oops. To the ...

Season 4 True Blood Promos and Teasers

True Blood Merlotte's Bar and Grill

If you haven't read the most recent book in the Sookie Stackhouse Series, Dead Reckoning, then you're missing out. Unfortunately, the book has only received a three star rating on Amazon.com and I think it deserves a higher rating but the book did have some issues and maybe part of my opinion of the book ...

Brand Loyalty and Vibram’s Poor Customer Service

Sad face cookies

Once upon a time in a land far, far away--Arkansas--journeyed a brave explorer--Tucker--and his merry band of men--Tucker's dad, brother in law and a family friend. As their great warships--canoes--fought through the raging water, a naiad capsized the warship the brave explorer had been piloting and his sacred shoes--his Vibrams--were swept away. That was back in 2007 and ...

Self-Doubt and Green Haired Gilbert

Filed Under: Book Related, Life

I had an odd experience today. I was talking with the podiatrist and as she looked over my medical information sheet, she raised her eyebrows and asked, "You're an author?! I've always wanted to write a children's book but I just don't have time. If I had it to do all over again, I'd become an ...

Hack of PSN Downfall of Playstation Arm of Sony?

Playstation Network Logo

Sony announced on the 14 of this month that they were starting to restore the Playstation Network which went down due to a hack attack that--according to Anonymous--wasn't caused by them. Despite my delusions of coolness, I am obviously NOT cool since the PSN--Playstation Network--hasn't been restored to Steve the PS3. Now that I think about it, ...

Best Spicy Mayo EVER

Filed Under: Food and Drink, Recipes

We're starting back eating from the diabetic cookbook I got a coon's age ago and last night's meal was Smokin' Turkey Sandwiches. What made the sandwich a better than normal sandwich was the bread was a french-style bread that was toasted and a spicy mayo--hence the name of the sandwich. Since I've never been known ...

Six Good Things I Love. Six Bad Things I Hate. All A Part of Me

Filed Under: Life

After this weekend and how Cara acted at Walmart--She screamed and cried through the entire store because she didn't get what she wanted.--I almost want to add, "Shopping at Walmart with Cara." to my list of six things I very much dislike. However, I came up with the list last night and don't feel like ...
