Cute dogs.

Yeah, I think these dogs are cute.  Don't judge me.

I bought a gun!

Sort of.  It's a pellet gun.  Technically it's not a firearm but this thing would give you a hurtin!  It's a
Remington Summit and I got it at Dicks Sporting Goods.  Also, it looks the price went back up already so get yours soon before it goes up again!

Why did I get one?  Well, I really want a gun, and I've always wanted a "bb gun" and since my wife gave me half of her shopping spree winnings and told me to blow it on whatever, I did!

It's a really nice one without getting too too expensive and it's super cheap to shoot and you can even shoot it indoors (be mindful of doors).  I saw a guy online kill a turkey with one!

Shooting is just a blast (no pun intended) but it really is fun.  And this thing is accurate.  I haven't really gotten the scope sighted in 100% but it's very close.  I need a good gun rest (which I'll just build with random stuff) to really test it out.

It's really hefty too.  It's about 8 pounds and feels comfortable.  Also feels very "quality."  I'm not worried about it having problems.  It's a break barrel and single shot at a time but that's fine with me.  Also, with it being a one pumper, it's super fast and keeps good velocity, up to 1,000 feet per second!  Real guns, .22 cal zoom by at just about 1280 fps. 

So anyway, that was a little gift to myself, courtesy of my wife really.  I love it!  Now if she'll only let me hang it over the fireplace...

WTF Wednesday

Before you get all uppity (is that spelled right?), what does "WTF" stand for?  

"Wherefore Thy Fascination"

Bet you didn't know!  [Thanks Josh]

Wordle Wednesday

Don't know what Wordle is?

Where's the cold?

I really don't feel like it's Christmas/New Years time because it's not that cold out.  That's lame.  I got two great new coats and I can barely wear them!  But I  still am, even though I may get a little warm.

I'll leave you with this video.

[Photoshopped] Christmas Card

Yeah, I added myself in there.   I was busy during the Christmas party but I just threw me in there quickly, it's not pretty.  And sorry for the late card, but you "got" my personal one (scroll down).

Tunes Tuesday brought to you by: My Friend TJ

Since I'm not really big into music, well, I enjoy it, and I enjoy lots of different kinds (Beirut, Enya, Daft Punk, Kanye), but I don't know anything about it, check out a post from a friend of mine.  He breaks down it down in simple terms and it's check out some of the songs he mentions.  I even recognize most of them! (He's kinda my music guru)

What should I do?

Should I move back to Scrap Paper?  I haven't posted much on my Squarespace either.  That's not to say I don't like it.  But it's not free like Blogger is.  I think I may just have to call it quits soon.  It's just the better decision (?).  

Anyway, vote in the poll on the right, let me know what you think, leave a comment!

Not too [Common]

I have an iPhone and I'm a pretty big Mac/iPod guy but I love this Zune ad.  I also tried out a Zune for about a month when they came out.  I liked them.  They had some neat things that the iPod didn't have but they weren't going to replace my 60GB 5th generation.  You know what... if they made a Zune that sync'd with iTunes, I think I would buy one.  Just cause.  Anyway, enjoy the video.

Peanut butter free app time!

You may have seen it before but if you haven't Topple for the iPhone/iPod Touch, is a great app.  It's a blast to play and even though you get frustrated in the later levels you still enjoy it.  My favorite thing about it is the personalities of the blocks.  They are so funny!

Anyway, for a limited time, it's FREE! 

Buy it HERE (link to App Store)

Be sure to check out their other apps, especially their new one Rolando.

Rolando video! "Escape from Rolando Central" - coming in December for iPhone and iPod touch from ngmoco:) on Vimeo.

It's Christmas Time!

We're visiting our parents this weekend because we have a wedding to go to tomorrow.  But today, while the wifey went shopping, I hung out with my brother at my parents house.  Well, on the agenda for my parents was picking out and cutting down a tree. 

It was pretty cold but we took our time and picked out a good one.  I won't show you yet, just tease you with this photo.  You can imagine how awesome it is.  I know you will.

That's not coffee.

Kona Coffee Island Blend?  Wow.  I don't really have much to say except that it can't be good.  Here's a few reasons.


- When was this roasted?

- How much Kona is even in there?

- It's pre ground.

- It's made with a Keurig*. (*Not that they are bad, but they can't be used if you want good coffee.)

Since moving to the DC area I haven't really found a good coffee shop.  Yes, I know Murky is totally nearby but it's not on my way to work or at a very convienent location from my place.  And actually I just went there the other day for my first time.

Anyway, with my lack of good coffee, I've just kinda gone without.  I did get a shipment or two from DoubleShot but I haven't gotten anything in a while.  (Actually I think someone might be getting me some for Christmas, and if not, I will be myself!)

So what's the tip of the post?  Don't drink bad coffee.  Just don't do it.  Unless you have to and the only people that have to are working at NORAD and the lights are low and the temps are cool and it's 3:45 in the morning.  Gotta keep the missiles ready.
