Funko recently announced a line of their POP! vinyl figures for the original Jurassic Park movie. admittedly they’re cool and, despite the fact it’s been half a year since I bought a toy, I’d really like to get a dilophosaurus.

This is why you don’t have dads help their kids with schoolwork.
There were lots of almost correct guesses... pliers, needle nose pliers... all good. Then a friend on Instagram guessed “one of those needle-nose scissor-action tool things” and how could I say no. Sounded pretty close to...
I’m not usually one to care about aging. It’s simply a number. True aging is mental and/or physical. Either your psyche goes Old Yeller or your body does. If you can make both skew younger, you’re set, right?
Hey, look at that! Not only is it not a post about home automation gone awry but it’s my first video of 2018... and it’s on time... and it’s not about home automation.
This is really getting frustrating. Our iHome plugs now refuse to work with Wink or Echo or lord only knows what else.
For any of you all who have higher degrees of home automation than I — let’s be honest, that could be anyone — what do you do when your home network goes down?
This shouldn’t be funny. It truly should not be. But it is.
As I recall, last year, I received an email of listening stats from both Spotify and Last.fm. As neither have arrived yet and we’re almost done with January, I sought out my own stats via the Last.fm website.
I was corrected just now that the Macro Monday I thought was fluorite is actually moldy cheese. I wondered what that smell was. Oy!
Dear U.S. Government,
Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat or an Independent or whatever... DO YOUR DAMN JOB!
I’ve been annoyed these last couple months because we have a DVR season pass set for new episodes of Saturday Night Live.
So many options, so little time.
The actual, physical act, not the band. Katie and I when we went sledding with my brother and then-future sister-in-law.
Time for my first installment of Snippety goodness for 2018. And it’s on a Wednesday, just like the old days. Buckle up! Hunker down! Step aside!
30 years ago today.
Damn, I’m old.
Lots of foodie and dessert guesses on last week’s Macro Monday and only one “chocolate chip cookie” from last week’s winner, Jordan. Sorry but I gotta stand firm on this one. Only the cookie gets it.
For the second year in a row, Katie and I went with my brother and his wife to see a Professional Bull Riders (PBR) event here in Chicago. I really can’t explain why but I love it. It’s a ton of fun.
Katie came up with this grand idea for a restoration that involves an old door. To what end? We cannot yet say. But we do have a door and have started the work.
A coworker brought up an interesting point to me the other day... Indiana Jones is a completely pointless character to the overall action of the Nazis and Nazi sympathizers in The Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Last weekend, Katie and I stopped at both Sam’s Club and Costco to pick up some needs. On the way home, I asked her which club we should continue with when our memberships come due.
I read this line tonight in Leia, Princess of Alderaan by Claudia Gray...
You’ve all seen those little one minute or less recipe videos on Facebook, haven’t you? I’ve seen a ton. I’ve saved a bunch of them in anticipation of trying to make them myself.
It was a bit obscure of a Macro Monday last week but my friend Jordan Eiler nailed it. Helps that he’s a car nut.
Here’s a question to all of you who have signed up for MoviesAnywhere and have linked up your iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, and/or Google Play accounts...
Have you seen (what I think is) the most recent Farmers Insurance commercials?
That necessity-based thermostat purchase we had a feeling we’d need to make? It was the tip of the iceberg.
I call this my Leisure Suit Kevin look. Damn I’m cute.
That new thermostat I mentioned we would like to add to our home automation repertoire? Yeah, it may be coming sooner than expected.
Welcome to the first installment of Macro Monday for 2018!! Actually, I need to wrap up the final installment from last year so here you go...
