Bye-bye Media Play!

Jen and I were at the Great Mall in Milpitas yesterday and as we were walking around I noticed that Media Play was gone. Not a big surprise as they were maybe the highest-marked up store I’ve ever been to. Still, it was a bit of a shock as they’ve been there for quite a long time. Does anyone know when it closed?

What’s there now is some home furniture shop with a ton of empty space and a plenty of fake plants…

Bye-bye Playoff Beard…

After only one full day of growing the Playoff Beard, I was asked by my lovely wife to shave it off. See, we were going to Dave and Busters for a child-free afternoon of a meal and a movie and she wanted me to look nice for the event (we were celebrating our eight-year anniversary which is actually tomorrow) and I conceded the point…

The weird thing is that the Sharks actually won, so maybe I should have an anti-Playoff Beard. I’m so confused…

Playoff beard, here we come

Because I can, (and because Tom can’t 😉 ), I’ve decided to grow a playoff beard. “What the hell is a playoff beard,” you may ask? Tom has the details.

Oh yeah, GO SHARKS!

And we’re baaaack!

Mostly. Big ups to Tom for importing all of my typepad posts last night. They’re mostly OK, but a few things are missing. Nothing to be missed terribly though. Now all I need to do is get some assistance from Lance and modify some CSS and we’ll be at 100%!

A new look, a new engine and a new headache…

Well, here we go again… Being the lemming that I am, I’m following in the footsteps of Tom and Lance and moving my blog to a new engine. WordPress to be specific. (It also helps that WordPress is free and my last host, TypePad charged me.) I’m in the process of migrating all of my old entries to this site, but it could be a while as Tom’s busy and is helping me out with this project on a catch-as-catch-can process.

In short, be patient, the site may be up and down and have some weirdness going on for a while while we tweak some settings and make it look less like the default WordPress template, but I’m very optimistic that we’ll have this up and running as soon as possible!


This is bad…

This is bad.  Really bad.  Found at GVOD.

Happy Birthday Jen!

Jen and CJ

Today is Jen’s birthday.  Happy birthday Jen, I hope it’s a wonderful day and I’m so happy and proud to be sharing my life with you and that you’ve chosen me to share your life with.

Here’s to many, many more years together!

On Family Reunions…

Originally uploaded by TedsBlog.

Jen Claire and I spent the last weekend down in Cayucos (near Morro Bay) with my cousins at our family’s beach house.  We got to spend quality time with John, Megan, Jack, Brookie, Ben, Jen (John’s sister), their two kids, cousin Erin and her fiance Adam, my aunt Jane, uncle Wayne and John’s parents as well.  All-in-all, a ton of people to visit and catch up with.

We had a great time and I took a ton of pictures, a third of which I’ve posted up on Flickr so far.
