Doodle, originally uploaded by macfixer.

A quick doodle that I made at work, while waiting for a machine to update (thanks, Windows Update!).

Whoooo Is The Cat With The Beeeeeeeak?

Sometimes, life reminds you that all is not fair with the world; that the odds are forever stacked in favor of the House.

  1. Yesterday, as my wife's grandparents were to leave for their home in Florida, her grandmother complained that her left arm couldn't move and her tongue "felt heavy". My mother-in-law tried to contact her doctor, and when she couldn't, made the Executive Decision to take her to the hospital. Good thing she did, because they later found out she had had a stroke. I dashed home (cancelling a doctor's appointment in the meanwhile) to be with the family and all. Sonia's abuela is doing OK. She's still able to talk, and is still as ornery as ever. The doctors, meanwhile, are trying to find out how much damage has been done. They did a CT scan yesterday, but it was foggy, so today's agenda is an MRI. Here's hoping she sits still enough for that.
  2. Today, I just found out my favorite show on TV, Cartoon Network's "Harvey Birdman" is going off the air come the end of July. Man, I can truly say I absolutely LOVE that show, and seeing it end after only 39 episodes really hurts.

Now, obviously, event #1 is worse than #2 -- but, man -- they both are pretty crummy.

Raining Crab

While walking between buildings here at work, I heard a rustling in the tree above me. A large, dark mass fell with a 'thud' in front of me. Apparently, the local birds like seafood.

N00b can't drive!

Normally, I'd write something about how this guy can't walk and chew gum (or in this case, drive and wave) at the same time... but the voiceover guy has it all down pat:

Flea and Hack

Flea and Hack, originally uploaded by macfixer.

Flea (on right) and her brother Hack (on left) when they were just kittens. We got them from a co-worker when they were abandoned by their mother. They needed antibiotics, and we eventually needed to give Hack up, because his cough wasn't going away.

Flea eventually got better, although she lost most of the vision in one eye. She's a great cat, though -- and she looks at me like I'm Mom, which is kinda sweet.

Mason enjoyed just barely kicking me in the head while trying to capture this scene. Thanks, kid.

Me at the Dentist

Is it safe Kyle?, originally uploaded by wyntir.

Well, looks like Mrs. Macfixer decided to put some pictures up on Flickr also. Take a look around.

"Theo! Rudy! Puddin'!"

Funny story, here. My wife and I saw this on VH-1's "Acceptable TV" (a TV show where viewers vote to keep 2 of 5 mini shows).

This particular show is called "Kosbees" (a parody of "Gremlins"), and it makes absolutely NO sense whatsoever. At the time, we were both all, "meh." -- but found ourselves repeating phrases and laughing for days afterwards. Real stealthy and sneaky, Acceptable TV people... enjoy!

Microsoft 1978 (before and after)

Stuck my coworker (rather poorly, IMHO) into a Microsoft photo from 78. Apparently noone at work noticed. Yeah, I'm that good.

I found 3 four-leaf clovers today while trudging through the rain. Looks like I'm going to have a good day!

Humorous Cards

Humorous Cards, originally uploaded by macfixer.

Why does the local supermarket require a separate sign just for humorous cards? It's not like they have a sign for juice and another for grape juice. Weird.

"Wiht Eeg"

To find a sign with one misspelling is a great find. Finding two in the same sign? Priceless.

Man, McDonald's ain't what it used to be.
