Fatherhood Friday and the Little Moments

There are, I’m realizing, these little moments that no one can explain to you about fatherhood that fill your heart until it feels like it may explode with joy.  They make you feel as if you are doing everything pretty much right and no matter how many times you blunder, your child is going to turn out just fine. Non-parents just won’t get it.  They may look at you as if you are crazy, or maybe doing lines of formula when no one is looking.

2006 Mazdaspeed 6

In Japan, it’s known as the Atenza. In Europe it’s known as the Mazda 6 MPS.
In my driveway, it’s known as Fujin (Japanese god of the wind), and I LOVE this car. It’s got the perfect blend of practicality, power, safety and luxury that I was looking for, and there are VERY few that meet my stringent criteria. Other models I was considering were the Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT, Audi A4 2.0t, Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VII, Subaru STI, and the Infinity G35x, but for some reason I …

Driving Pet Peeves #3

Sometimes I find myself in a parking lot, staring at a car (or truck, van, what have you) parked so badly that it is effecting everyone around him.  I stand there, incredulous that some dipshit could actually get out of his vehicle, look back at its status at a 45 degree angle and say : “Meh…good enough” and WALK AWAY.  On what fucking PLANET is this an acceptable parking job?

iPhone Countdown #3

T-minus 11 days and counting, Houston we are a go…
But in the meantime, I’ll amuse myself with finding the must-have iPhone apps I gotta get on day 1. 
Starting with Kindle!
I love the idea of having a HUGE book collection on my iPhone, as well as being able to browse and get suggestions on new books.  I’m hoping that certain magazine subscriptions wind up making thier way to the Kindle platform as well, …

Getting peed on…

Ya, I can’t wait to see what the search engines do with this post.  Some dude is going to sit down after his long day at work, Google his favorite fantasy, and wind up here.  Ah well, to each his own, but this post is about my son, you freak so if you’re looking to find what I think you’re looking for (you freak) move along please.
