The Season

Posted by Kelly on December 23, 2009 in My Life |

It’s brutal.  The crowds in the malls (especially in the parking lots), the rough attitude of a lot of people (I heard three threats of death today alone), the cost of getting gifts (why not just give cash?) and the propensity for overeating (going to squeeze in another workout just in case) makes for wondering: what is so great about the holiday season?

But I love it.  I do.  If you have kids, it’s great – they are so excited, that it drives you to the mall.  The family getting together for a tradition – we do my mom’s place on Xmas eve, kids open all gifts from relatives (obviously the Santa stuff has to wait until morning) and eat absurd foods.  The creme puffs she makes really should be illegal.  They are killing people.

I think it’s just a great break from the crush of daily life that EVERYONE takes.  I’ve got killer construction software, work for an unreal gaming company, and a super-fun celebrity contest on the work side, and golf and aviation on the rare occasion that I have the time.  This is a great break, and a chance to spend time with my girls.

I love Christmas.  And New Years.  And of course, Kellsmas – which is January 7.  🙂

Windows 7? Yeah. OK.

Posted by Kelly on November 5, 2009 in My Life |

Less than two weeks after Windows 7 launches, a whole article outlining some of the most common problems with Windows 7 is already out.  Mac. End of story.

Weed Names

Posted by Kelly on November 2, 2009 in My Life |

As you know, I am NOT a pot smoker.  But I can still appreciate funny weed names.  Random Weed Name Generator gets it done.  Even vote for the ones you like best.

Chad Waterbury

Posted by Kelly on October 28, 2009 in My Life |

Lately, I’ve felt that things weren’t right with my body.  Not that I’m not working out (David and I destroy ourselves 3 times a week), and not that I’m not watching what I put in my body (see previous post) – it’s that things just don’t seem to MOVE right anymore.  My shoulders hurt ALL […]

Too much

Posted by Kelly on October 19, 2009 in My Life |

OK, I know I’ve said this before, but I’ve GOT to lighten up on the libations.  8 days in India being hosted by the guys at SakhaTech, followed by 6 days in New Orleans with my retarded friends, then 4 days in Pismo for a 3 day golf tournament with the Dad (I took 2nd […]

Posted by Kelly on August 6, 2009 in My Life |

I used to think that Time was a very respectable magazine, with well researched articles.  Not anymore.

Is Stiffs.com really sick? Or is it just YOU?

Posted by Kelly on July 9, 2009 in My Life |

Just got off the phone with what is apparently Michael Jackson’s biggest fan in all of Minnesota.  Note to self:  must make it at least a BIT harder for people to get my cell number. He started out very politely asking if I was the Commissioner of the Game of All Games, and I said […]
