What a wonderful weekend!

Friday on the way to work I picked up an Anna hat. drax0r had purchased one previously, and I was envious. While dining at The Jalapeno Tree with my wife later that evening, I stood to go, and put on my hat. The gentleman with his family adjacent us asks me, "Is that an Anna hat?" Turns out he was the Athletic Director for the ISD. I've met more influential people in Anna this month than my entire 18 months in STL. Crazy.

From there we hit Home Depot where we picked our colors for the new house. I chose two colors, the darker as the base, the lighter as the trim. It has a very...unique ceiling insofar as they try to continue the bay window motif into the office.






We ended up at the Allen Outlet Mall just down the street from the first Wild Damn Texan office where we dropped off my wife's Mother's Ring to be resized (just call galinda822 anytime you need to know anything about me, my wife tells me) and I found a pair of shoes I've been looking for for about a month now. It's hard to find Merrell shoes, and there was a shop which opened up just a couple of months ago who carry the regions largest selection.





That evening, my wife's car experienced a catastrophic failure, so drax0r called his sister's husband who used to be lead mechanic for Saturn of Plano, and greased the skids prior to our arrival the next morning. Thanks!

Saturday morning we dropped off the car, stopped at Party City I grilled burgers for my wife and I, my folks, drax0r and jesskd26 and his parents & sister and her husband. Then we had Little Girl's birthday party! Afterward, my folks took both the kids and the wife and I headed to Stonebriar Mall in Frisco, where we found IKEA. As soon as we stepped through the threshold, my wife knew she was ill-equipped to face the enormity of the place single-handedly. "I need Carla." She stated. This misadventure provided me opportunity to chat up Carla while I followed my wife around the store.

We had two shots of espresso over gelato at Paciugo followed by a trip to Half Price Books and dinner at Cafe Brazil.

Arriving home, we walked straight into a game of Catchphrase which we enjoyed until approximately 0300.

Today, I picked up the following:

  • Nick Glennie-Smith - The Man in the Iron Mask score.

  • Richard Gibbs - Queen of the Damned score

  • N3: Ninety-Nine Nights score

  • Byeong Woo Lee - The Host score

  • The Electronic Tribute to Pink Floyd




It was a fun and eventful weekend; one of those which come around only every so often.

Here's the shirt they got me for Father's Day:

Is the British Racing Green going in just the living room or the whole house?

Glad you and the wife were able to spend some quality time together.
Sorry I wasn't there at IKEA when she needed me though. :(

What happened to the car?

Love the shoes!
Love the shirt!
Love the pictures!

Thank you!

The British Racing Green is only for the office. It's the only color I'm aloud to pick out. I've given my wife complete authority over the entire rest of the house.

What happened to the car?
I was pulling onto Central Expressway and the Service Engine Soon light, the Service light, and the Reduced Power light all came on at once, while the car simultaneously lost the majority of its power and it began shifting hard. It's at the dealership now, and I'm already up to $500!

Love the shoes!
Love the shirt!
Love the pictures!

I'm so glad. See - they're not bad with socks!

:P

Excellent colors for the house! :D

You had a great father's day. I mean - your kids got you a BSG shirt. They so rock.

Happy Birthday to your girl and Happy Father's Day to you!

PS - I am jealous of your girl's birthday cake. :)

Those are specifically for my office - the house color (as it stands now) is shown here though I think they'll compliment each other nicely - especially since the office is an actual separate room for the first time ever.

Wanna know a secret? I think my wife and galinda822 actually picked it out. But I won't tell the kids if you don't!

Happy Birthday to your girl and Happy Father's Day to you!
Thank you, ma'am.

PS - I am jealous of your girl's birthday cake. :)
It was surprisingly delicious.

I hope this doesn't read like your last post where you declared that you had a great weekend but then went on to sing Primus for a page and a half. God! And I thought I was supposed to be the one with the ponytail.

ISD
Islamic School District?

It will be interesting to see how your vision plays out.

Wild Damn Texan
I miss the good ol'e days of WDT and the data center.

shoes
At least these shoes aren't gay. I'm glad you didn't have a dumbass for a sales rep like you did last year.

dead car
Cars that die suck. Being poor sucks even more.

scores
My curiosity is piqued by the Man in the Iron Mask. As professortom.net is now a fully functional domain, you now have no excuse to log into my server and upload it for me. Also, you will find access to all of my Albums in your home directory. I still need to clean the file structure up a bit, but I have added a few gems recently.

Father's Day
That's a nice shot of you and the kids. You look very happy with your babies. Here's a redux of our phone conversation on the subject:

Mama's little baby loves
Short'nin', short'nin',
Mama's little baby loves
Short'nin' bread.


The picture reminded me of professortom calling you an old bastard. Don't you have a birthday coming up soon?

That wasn't me. It was you.

Flawlessly, as usual, I'm sure.

I have my days.

True, despite the bright yellow.

Cars that die suck.
As with everything in this life, only ones that die so early.

Done.

Thank you. I am.

Thank you.
