I walked by Monica, who spent about two minutes trying to lick a few leftover lumps of wet food from a tiny container. It was practically empty after being served a few hours ago. 😸
The horse head
I recorded the following 28-second video on February 29, 2012 — it’s funny. Heads up: there’s some profanity. Thanks to Hanni for being a good sport!
Here’s the context1:

Happily married before Tinder
My main takeaway was that I’m really happy I got married before the launch of Tinder.
Pleasant post from my pal, Paul Sieminski: 60 Hours in Transit; and the best Old Fashioned I’ve Ever Tasted at 35,000 feet.
Arrested Development is hilarious!
Amy and I finally watched all episodes of Arrested Development this year, and have continued to watch them repeatedly on Netflix. It’s a riot, and very relatable.
In Season 2, Episode 10, “Ready, Aim, Marry Me!” — which features Martin Short as Uncle Jack — has me cracking up with laughter. “Eye level! Eye level!”
Guided Access for iOS and the calculator
I activated Guided Access for iOS 6 after it was mentioned in this Lifehacker post “The Secret Powers Hidden in Your iPhone’s Accessibility Options“. Pretty nifty idea!
If someone asked to use the calculator, to speed the return of my precious iPhone, I’d disable the clearing button.
Get it right the first time! 😉
Y U ATTACK ME?!
While I was making breakfast this morning, Monica was walking between my legs, rubbing with each pass, meowing every so often. (Precious!) As I made coffee over the sink with my back turned to her, she leapt and tried to
paw claw her way towards my shoulders — like the first couple months of her youth — as if she were T-1000 chasing a police car in Terminator 2! I stifled a painful squeal and side stepped a couple feet to my left, and she ran away into the living room.
Mawage (The Princess Bride)
While helping Amy arrange a photo book from our time in San Francisco a little over
a month two months ago, I remembered showing her the wedding scene from The Princess Bride. Peter Cook was fantastic as The Impressive Clergyman. This is relevant because we’re including the quote from that scene on the back cover. Boom!
(By the way, Amy hasn’t seen this movie. Yet.)
If you’re looking for hilarious entertainment, watch a few episodes of net_work by Black20 and you’ll be hooked. The vortex of dry humor and confusion drew me in right from the start.
From the net_work page at Black20:
Forget what you know about sitcoms. Forget what you know about the way stories are supposed to go. net_work is office comedy for a new generation.
It’s two Internet video producers and the strange world that surrounds them. It’s business unusual.
The only two things you can expect of net_work are: Mike will be Mike, and Michael will be Michael.
One of my early favorites is “Separates,” which was back in Season 1. (They’re currently in Season 4.)
You’re welcome. 🙂
Before the haircut
Discount portraits by Brian Auer
Rather than the five bucks the photo booth charges, Brian Auer will give you a 50-cent discount. Wow! 🙂
