New phone


The back of this is glass!!

I wrote about this earlier this week.  My plan was to pay outright without having to finance a new phone but AT&T and their stupid Next Plan had me locked in.  I saved $133 on a useless phone (for me) to instead invest that into a new phone that isn’t useless.  At some point I’ll pay off the phone later this year or early next year as I just did with my wife’s phone.

Green Arrow protection


Back off, protected by Green Arrow!

This little guy is now protecting the Dogbert coffee mug and Daughter mug at my office desk.  He’s got some sharp arrows draw on his back and his big head gives him near 360 degree views of my cubicle.  No one better touch my mugs, lol.

Old pictures


This was way before bad teeth, sinus infections, and weepy crust-covered eyes.  Those eyes are saying “Feed me, then pet me, then feed me again.”

I found this picture in some archive I found while consolidating all my pictures onto a single backup drive.  It was one of the first pictures I took with the new Digital SLR that my wife and I purchased after we had our daughter.  How can you not love this face?  Unfortunately that was 10 years ago and his progressed age has all but changed him into an asshole licking plastic bags at 2am in the morning.

Upgrades Mean Passdowns


It’s the back of the television, and I do have the other mounting bracket as it was not re-attached after moving.

Now that there is a 55″ television upstairs, and my daughter has the 40″ that used to be there, I’ve inherited the 32″ that currently doesn’t have a home.  I’m trying to decide if its worth mounting to the wall in my office opposite my desk, or if its just worthy of selling for $50 or $75.  It would be nice to have the ability to watch a movie when there are things going on in the house that don’t involve me and I’m hiding in my office.  Oh well, regardless of what I do, I now have a television without a home that may or may not be installed on my office wall.

Target Furniture


I don’t recall if I shared this or not and I’m too lazy to review past posts to find out, lol

My wife purchased this shelf because it was ridiculously cheap on  I didn’t ask how much, but I was requested to put it together.  Here it is, and it matches sort of to the color scheme we picked for the main floor.  Notice that there is nothing on it, there STILL isn’t anything on it even today.  I’m curious as to why we needed a shelf to put stuff on, with no stuff to put on it, for the only reason of filling a space that was remarked as “this space needs something.”  Whatever, it’s done and in it’s spot.  I may fill it with Buddha statues just to prove a point that we don’t need a shelf to house our non-existent stuff.

Windows 10 on 6 year old Computer


Microsoft said it couldn’t be done, I did it anyway.  Windows 10 on a 6 year old computer!  Yeah!

The picture is pretty much self-explanatory.  I smashed Windows 10 on a 6 year old computer that had only Windows 7 drivers available.  It worked although with some minor usability issues.  I’m working through those one at a time and slowly making it more stable.  Whether it will remain that way remains to be seen.  The point is that I did it when they said it wasn’t recommended.
