“Economy” is a funny word to me. Mainly because I never know how to pronounce it. Sometimes it’s “E-conomy” others it’s “ec-onomy”. When you say “economist” it changes and when you say “economics” it really f’s me up. Is it “e-conomics” or “ec-onomics”. I know that “econ” is...

It flurried a bit today. This is definitely the latest I’ve ever seen snow falling in my 9 years in Minnesota.

I saw Dean Kamen speak tonight at my college’s Science and Technology Banquet. He is a very interesting man. The things that he and his company have done are amazing. Sure the Segway is his most “popular” invention but his medical devices and now power and water generation inventions are literally “world” changing. He made points tonight about inspiring the next...

Can't shake it
I have an annoying thought floating around in my head today. I can’t shake it. I’d really like to but I can’t seem to get by it.
Off to an ok start
On my drive to work I saw a car with an original Marvelous 3 sticker on his window. It had the Hey!Album artwork. Pretty awesome.
As we are on the verge of receiving our “free” money to stimulate the economy I’m torn as to how I should spend it. Here are the current options 1) An Ipod Touch 2) A PS3 (blu-ray!) 3) A new computer 4) A new air conditioner 5) Save/invest it Right now I must say I’m leaning towards PS3. Although the smartest would probably be a new air conditioner or saving it. ...
For the first time in my almost 3 years in my current job I feel burnt out and ready to leave it behind. The last couple of weeks have been pretty crazy. Between events, angry parents, increased call volume and long hours I’m at a tipping point. Don’t get me wrong I really like my job and the people I work with and for. It’s just that in my current state I definitely...
I’ve decided that all computers should be outfitted with microphones and should react to the curse words we spew at them. they could get defensive if it’s something stupid or work harder if they’re falling behind, much like an inferior subordinate.
This day and age
The network is slow at work and it’s really upsetting me. It’s like I’m back in my high school years on a 56k modem trying to download anything. Makes you realize how accustomed we have come with speed and the “have it now!” mentality. I’m such a tool.

Reasons I hate my job… 1. Parents who think they know more than I do about my job. 2. Parents who think their kid is the smartest kid on the planet. 3. Kids who can’t do anything themselves. 4. Being the go to guy. Reasons I love my job… 1. My coworks are mostly, say 90%, awesome. 2. Some kids are just smart and awesome to work with. 3. Going to school for free and still not...

I’m officially obsessed with play systems. I was checking out this picture of one of their models and found what a think is a child photographed in mid fall. Check out the kid coming off the slide. I think he’s about to “bite it”. Also if you reference the height of the swingset and the length of the swings I think we have a mismatch. I think that these swings are set...

Good one Google. I almost bought it until I read the testimonials.

One of my co-workers is buying a “play system” for her kids. She showed me the catalog and this is one of the most expensive. (She is NOT buying this model). This one was priced about $30,000. Based on the “footprint” and the fact that it appears to be two stories, this has more square footage than my condo that I purchaced for about 4 times as much. Granted my condo...
