Monday was my very first official driving lesson. I've had my learner's permit for a long, long time.

...and NO, I will NOT show you the picture, so DON'T ask, okay!

Lumiere One: Sprinkler Wave

I have joined the Lumiere hordes. Now I'm addicted. Here are the rules, and here is the growing collection.

This exercise has taught me a valuable lesson: That which constricts you makes you stronger. Unless it's an actual boa constrictor, in which case it makes you weaker and then you die.

Paul Bunyan, my ass.

Chainsaws. The power tool made famous by horror movies. There is no scarier piece of portable machinery, as far as I'm concerned. So you can imagine my fury when I found my fiancee not only in possession of a dreaded chainsaw, but up in a tree with it. Please allow me to say it again: he was up in a tree with it.

Our local deli has a donation canister set-up at the counter for an unfortunate citizen who recently met with serious bodily harm while, you guessed it, going up into a tree with a chainsaw. I really didn't want Brian to join him in donation-can-land. Hence the swearing.

At the end of the video you will learn of a new horror entering our lives -- an evil far more horrifying than a chainsaw. And much, much, much louder.

Instant noodles are magical. You can sit down and slurp them up and feel good knowing that you just ate a 33 cent meal (with no nutritional value whatsoever, so remember to take your vitamins if you are subsisting on Top Ramen) or, you can dress them up and take them to a whole new level. Turn them into haute cuisine!

I like to Pygmalionize my ramen.

Carl Weaver, this one's for you.

limping toward the future

The BCH (Big City Hospital) where I work is a mixed bag in terms of technological advancement: way ahead of the times in some respects and way behind in others.

Oh, who am I kidding...we're behind on everything. Way behind. Laughably behind.

Seriously, I work for morons.

Ah, housepainting. The Brady Bunch made it look like so much fun. It's not. They lied. The Brady's had six kids and a perky housekeeper to help them out and they weren't painting over stucco (Mike Brady was too good an architect to have lined their living room with stucco over paperboard).

Big changes coming here at the MMM of M. I'm eventually jumping ship to Wordpress, and the lovely ladies at Swank Web Style are doing their part to ensure overall swankiness. Not quite there yet, but very nearly done. The RSS feed will of course remain the same, and the videos will still reside at, but no longer points here, it instead points there.

BTW, the living room is now a very peculiar shade of beige that leans way toward pink. I have no idea how I feel about it.
