I got a call from Katie at work today and she told me, “Your son found your GameCube controller today.”

Yesterday marked the first anniversary of my employment at my new job. As stated on Twitter...
One of my favorites, Aphex Twin (AKA Richard D. James) released a new track and a pretty wicked viral advertising campaign around the Aphex Twin-loving world. Ev-er-y-where!
I know I said that I didn’t expect anyone to get last week’s challenge photo. At least, no one outside my office. So imagine my surprise when two people did get it. Okay, one, as the other is a coworker. Yeah yeah.
Katie and I are watching an episode of House Hunters with a couple of hipster salon owners shopping for a vacation house in Charleston, SC, who are enraging me so much with their stupidity that it makes me want to drink.
I’m looking for a new wallpaper for the home screen of my iPhone and I’m hoping you all can help me decide. Oh, and before you all ask, I already have Nathan and Katie on my lock screen, so, no, they’re not getting the shaft.
A couple months ago, I created my ranking list for Disney/Pixar films. Then I realized that all I did was make a list. I gave no rationale for the rankings whatsoever. This might be a good time to remedy that. So, below, please find my original ranking list appended with a brief reason why...
Eight years ago, Katie and I went on vacation to Disney World in Orlando. In addition to the Magic Kingdom, we also went to Animal Kingdom.
Do you remember a week ago when I was reminiscing about my old FunWithDeadTrees book review site? There actually was a reason for it beyond just taking a stroll down memory lane.
I'm still in shock that George Michael is no longer with us (yes, I know it was almost two years ago now). Prince and David Bowie and Tom Petty were bad enough. But George Michael, too? It's just crazy the amount of talent we've lost in the last few years. Alas, he is gone and we have to content ourselves with the material he produced during his far-too-short career. But it's magnificent material, isn't it?
I had a really good guess on last week’s challenge photo from Marty that it was a Norelco shaver blade. One of those spinny ones, yanno? I dug it. Alas, it was not correct.
Parenting Pro Tip 176:
When you have a five-year-old who is not just terrified of death but also very literal when it comes to language, do not describe how tired you are by saying, “I’m dying over here.”
Welcome to Saturday Snippets.
This post is what happens when you have notes jotted down for a bunch of different long-form post ideas and then, days later, cannot remember all that you had hoped to say and, instead of just deleting the notes, you write a lot less about them. Enjoy!
I want to do another list! I think I need to rank some other related stuff! But what? Hmmmm...
As I just finished Timothy Zahn’s brand spankin’ new Thrawn: Alliances book yesterday, I thought it would be cool to Throwback 26 years to the first book in the Star Wars Expanded Universe — Zahn’s Heir to the Empire.
It was a good month for goal progress! Check it out.
