Awesome Ad Deserves Awesome Post

I know lately I've just been a ad whore here, but being a Michael Bay fan and a fan of all things awesome, I feel I need to post this.

Once again, thanks for the drop goes to (I know they got it elsewhere, but seriously, if I tracked these things back to their source then I'd just be thanking the creators of the video, and who does that?)

Something to Look Forward To

I don't mean to overshadow the holiday or my sentiments about my wife (see post below,) but there are few words that can express my excitement for what the trailer on this site depicts. The music is still ringing in my ears.

If you can watch that trailer and not be excited, well then we have nothing more to discuss.

Good day.

I said good day!

Valentines Day

I opened my lunch to discover a sweet poem from my wife. Then I sit down to eat and find she's posted another note to me on her blog. I'd remiss (and an utter ass) if I didn't respond in kind. So, those of you that aren't my wife, please excuse me as I wax poetic.

How simple to be happy here in heaven!
After all, one doesn't want for much.
Passion finds its willing partner, ever
Pleased to please with a deft and tender touch.
Yearning is like walking through a valley
Veiled in the loveliness of flowers.
All the beauty of the earth can only
Lead us to the edge of what is ours.
Etched into our love there is a message,
Not of now but of all time and place,
Telling of a truth beyond the passage
In which we move from mystery to grace.
Nor are there signs that such content can be
Except my love for you, and yours for me.

-Nicholas Gordon

I love you, Stacy, now and forever.

Darth Jaffe Joffer, Ruler of Zamunda

This video had me in tears. Some of the dubs don't work too well, but there are some real gems in here.

Thanks for the drop, BWE!


You know that feeling you get when you wake up on a winter morning? The one that makes you wonder if the heater is on at all? You can usually chalk that up to stepping out of your warm blankets and into the comforter-less air. Yeah, not this morning. This morning, with outside temperatures below freezing and my daughters huddled in their coats as we prepared to leave, my beautiful wife thought to check the thermostat. Even though it was set for 65, the temperature was much lower. A quick trip down to the basement revealed that the pilot light for the furnace was out.


I know lighting your own pilot light is dangerous, especially the longer it may have been out, but we decided to try it. There was absolutely no odor of gas around the furnace, even at the very base. I figured it was safe enough. Then, being the certifiable genius I am, (also, not seeing an obvious place to light a pilot,) I decided to read the sticker on the front plate.

WARNING: This furnace is not equipped with a pilot light. It has an electric ignition. DO NOT try to light the furnace manually.

Er, okay.

I took a quick peek at the breaker switches in the next room and noticed that the furnace's switch was tripped. I flipped it and air started pumping through the blower.


Now, we just have to figure out why the furnace tripped its circuit breaker.
