Punday, February 15th

A man told ten horrible pun jokes to his friends, but none of them made the friends laugh. No pun in ten did.

Happy 1st Blogosversary to Me!

One year ago, I set out on an epic journey. A journey with the goal of publishing the insane ramblings of my mind for the whole world to see. I can’t believe it’s been a year already. I’m humbled that those who follow this blog regularly take valuable time out their day to read my posts. Thank you. To those lurking out there, I also thank you for listening in and encourage you to post comments. I love hearing what people think.

My importantly (and least expectedly), I have made some great new friends along the way, and kept in better touch with some existing friends.

I can’t wait to see what year 2 brings. Let’s go!

Reasons I’m Smiling Today

You know, there are lots of things going on in the world, the country, and even personally that I could fret about. However, I’m finding lots of things to smile about. I’d rather focus on those. Here they are, in no particular order.

  • It’s Friday! That’s always a good reason to be happy.
  • The Broncos are ranked #9 nationally and poised to be invited to a BCS bowl game. Tomorrow, they will kick some Vandal butt.
  • We are entering my favorite time of the year with Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up. It’s always an opportunity to spend cherished time with family and friends, and enjoy good food and good times. More importantly, it’s a time to renew and reflect on the things that are truly important.
  • In just 3 short days, the Older Daughter will be getting her driver’s license. While this generates lots of mixed feelings with me, I’m very proud and excited for her.
  • I have a job that I love. Just 5 short months ago I was facing a layoff in a really tough job market. I was fortunate enough to find a new job and have no time out of work. The fact that I absolutely love the job is a big plus also.
  • I have the best family and friends in the world. They are more loving and supportive of me than I feel that I deserve at times.
  • Blogging rules! DITH is nearing its one year anniversary (just a few short shopping weeks left folks). I am having a great time and have made some great new friends along the way.
  • Did I mention it’s Friday? Have a good weekend!

I’m Getting Old

As I mentioned in an earlier post, we went bowling last night with some good friends and had a great time. However, I’m paying for it today. My legs are sore and my knees are a bit achy. When did this happen? Bowling is only slightly more strenuous than walking to the fridge for a snack. I can’t believe I’m sore from bowling. I must be getting old. Or maybe I need more regular exercise. Naw…that’s crazy talk.

I’m The Dumbest Person On The Planet

I think my last brain cell just died…at least in the eyes of the Older Daughter.

A few weeks ago, The Older Daughter wanted to go to a movie with some friends on a Saturday night. They had some time constraints, so she needed to know the times the movie would be shown. I located the newspaper and found the movie listings. I showed her the listings and had this conversation:

Me: “Hey, I found the show times for that movie. It looks like it’s not showing at the time you wanted to go.”

Older Daughter: “Well those are not all the show times.”

Me: “Yes these are all the times. The want to sell movie tickets, so they list all of the show times.”

Older Daughter: “You don’t know that.”

I’ve been around for 39 years and thought I knew how to navigate a movie listing in the newspaper, but I guess not. I’m the dumbest dummy around.
