New Tricycle Morphs into Bike on the Go

Man, that thing's funny looking, but would be great for my kids. Or, I like to think it would...but then, they're scared of going fast anyway, so it would end up being nothing more than an expensive funky trike. Sigh.

You go, Burrito Boy!

It's not every day a kid packing 30 inches of steak and guacamole gets the SWAT team called on him. A grown man, sure, but not a kid...

Red Hot Northwestern Montana Action!

Things are hopping in Libby, Montana these days, as you can see by checking out their Eagle Cam. OK, so "hopping" is probably the wrong term...maybe "Nesting". Or "sitting". Hopefully soon "hatching."

Meetings I would have loved to be in

Austrian Houseware Chain Renames Tool Shed

I immagine it went a little something like this:

Fritz: OK, people, we need a name for the new tool shed. It's big, made of wood, and can hold many tools. No bad ideas, people, let's brainstorm here.

Otto: How about "Das Grossen Shed?"

Fritz: OK...

Henrietta: What kind of wood is it? We could call it "Pine Shed"

Otto: Wait, I've got it. I was on vacation last year and we toured this place that had great sheds and showers...what was it called...let's see. Auschwitz? No, that wasn't it...I remember, it was Mauthausen. How about that?

Fritz: Sounds good to me. Henrietta?

Henrietta: Jah!

Fritz: Great work, people. Let's go to the hoffbrauhaus and have ein bier.

Great headline

Microsoft Shows Off A Little More Of Longhorn

As a friend of mine said, "isn't that what got Mary Kay Letourneau in trouble?" Of course, we all know how that worked out, and according to the Post we'll be able to hear all the sordid details thanks to our friends at ET and The Insider tomorrow!

My new pet

Enough with the fish. I'm ordering one of these. I just hope it comes armed with exploding poop!

Maybe I do have to worry about that asteroid...

According to this I'll live until around 2053. Unless I start exercising every day and drop 35 pounds. Then I get to live until 2054. w00t!

Aww, crap.

And I had big plans for 2035 too...stupid deadly asteroids.
