Me and Kimberly on the Beach

I was on an overnight in Chicago and me and my daughter played World of Warcraft and here's a screencap from it.

We can talk the whole time with Skype in the background and I can see her if I run it in a window.

Great way to play and spend time if you're on the road. Not much different from being there except tucking into bed is missed.

Can't complain too much as I didn't work from 16-24 Jan and didn't leave the house until 6pm on the 25th. So, I figure so far it's a good tradeoff.

So, we're out at the horse stables...oh heck, here's the short version:

It's rainy, nasty, and there's the roll of paper towels I'd used to wipe a place to sit. Destructar, robot of embarrassment (3rd class) knocked the roll off the bench, down the hill, and into a river of muddy water.

Good job, son.

I know you're out there Lunatic Fringe but I have no idea what you did last summer

And don't give a crap, frankly never did.

But WHERE are you?

Witness my frappr map.

Now you can avoid (or flock to, your choice) areas with high concentrations of roblog readers.

Advertiser Headgames

This is funny, Sears' ad for a 46" TV on the left and (IIRC) Best Buy on the right for 42/46/52" TV's.

I love the way the Sears ad fills the whole page width and the Best Buy ad says to me "You sort of suck for not buying the 52".

Best Buy shows the 42" so that it looks like HALF the size of the 52". Really? Is it that much smaller?

They might as well also say: "If you buy the 42" then we've got to question your manhood."
