Great. Now I Can Get Rid of My Few Remaining Teeth.

"Friday" or "Fried Egg," which one?

You've got a lot of repressed feelings, don't you Friday?

Yeah, I'm tired... that's why today's "which one" is so weak. I've got this sinus thing going and so my head feels kind of thick and achy. I used to get this sort of head-cold thing once a year, but it's been a couple years now since my last bout. It's no big deal, really, except with a nose my size, once it starts a'runnin', you better look out! I just hope it clears up by the time camp rolls around on Monday. Basically, it burns the eyes, lungs and throat, causes vomiting and if continuously inhaled, death.

Spent most of the afternoon today tinkering with the Square Space web designing tools, working on a Wagnervana beta, just to see what it can do. I'm not quite ready to link you to it yet, but it's been a lot of fun, tinkering with themes, colors, fonts, columns, links, etc. It's so easy, a 4 year old child could understand it! (Run out and find me a four year old child, I can't make head nor tail out of it!) Maggie will be 4 in October... guess I could wait until then...

I was able to quickly and easily import this blog directly into the website, comments and all, which surprised even me. It's so easy to add pages and photo galleries and blogs and videos and it's all customizable and looks great. Anyway, once I get it fleshed out more, I'll link it here. I think I'll talk to Orion about it tomorrow - he's been looking for someone to design him a new site for his business, but wasn't happy with the quotes he was getting. Seems like a good solution for him as well. Didn't hear back from Josh yet with his take on it. Hope I didn't offend him in any way.

Better break up the monotony of today's post with a Funny Picture...

Who's gonna win, eh?

Well, true, it wasn't so much a funny picture, per se, as it was a cool picture. Sorry for the false advertising... Well, I guess I'll redeem myself by posting the Gutbuster of the Day, from This Is Why You're Fat. Give people what they want, then later you can give them what you want...


It's called The Pizzurger, and basically it's a Double Whopper from Burger King, with a slice of pizza between each patty. Guaranteed to produce world-class indigestion, and gas that will kill all the termites in your home. That dog in the background is a classic. Reminds me of the seagulls in Finding Nemo... "Mine?"

Family Beach Day #1 was a wash today. It was cold and overcast, while here in Escondido (further inland), it was nice and sunny. So they left early, and came home to hang out at the pool for a couple hours instead. Then they all went off to church for Worship Practice (you have to practice worship, you know!), and apparently had something happen, to which I am not privy. All I know is that Daughter #2 came in and said, "Don't go out there. They're arguing." And that was 45 minutes ago... Wifey and Eldest Daughter are still "out there"...

Other than that, not much to report today. Guess I'll go to the old fallback and post a funny video clip now... tonight, I pander to the soccer (*ahem* football) fans in the audience... Are there any Paraguayans here?


Cool special effects.

Well, to round out the ol' tried and true blog crutches, I now give you...

Todayve In History: June 20
--------------------------------------
- June 20, 1782: The US Congress adopts the Great Seal of the United States. (That was back when it was still legal to adopt seals.)

- June 20, 1840: Samuel Morse receives the patent for the telegraph. (You can always telegraph by the lines and points...)

- June 20, 1877: Alexander Graham Bell installs the world's first commercial telephone service in Ontario Canada. (His first call was to the local talk radio program, to brag.)

Celebrating birthdays today are Errol Flynn, Audie Murphy, John Goodman and Nicole Kidman. Thought I'd keep it "all Hollywood" with the birthdays today... although *one* of those listed is also the most decorated US Combat Soldier in history, and his grave is the second most-visited grave at Arlington, next to JFKs... I'll let you figure out who it is. (HINT: It isn't Nicole Kidman...)

Guess I'm going to call it a night. Until tomorrow, remember, I can't control her any more than I can control the weather...

Dragnet on the brain, Dave? Both "The "You've got a lot of repressed feelings, don't you Friday?" and the "it burns the eyes, lungs and throat, causes vomiting and if continuously inhaled, death." quotes are from Dragnet; the "I can't control her any more than I can control the weather." quote is from Sweet Home Alabama.

**I remembered the 3-quote rule this time! :D

I don't usually put two quotes from the same flick in one post, but I did tonight! One of the benefits of being the boss, I suppose...

15 points for Havah, and a mysterious 5 points for Shannon...

Still plenty of quote! Go for it folks! (except those of us who have *ahem* hit the limit already!)

You're killing me, Dave. Just saying ;)

PS Hoping to start updating the blog sometime soon. I keep getting distracted by uploading photographs and such. Oh, and I can't think of anything to say. I so admire your perseverance with your blog, Dave. You've made it half-way through the year, you realise? Bravo! :)

Sorry about the sinus thing - if your nose starts running, I'd recommend placing bits of tissue in each nostril, and leaving them there. You could then post a photo of that here for all of our amusement!
