i LOVE being on-call

Just finished a quick crisis. But the fun part is that note that when first paged, I was standing in the backyard in a mixture of mud and dog****, picking up the latter. Dogs were outside. Ran to house, left shoes on back step, wash hands (bleh), fire up laptop in kitchen due to ongoing piano lessons blocking way to office. Left dogs. They commence barking like mad. I look outside. They have stolen my shoes and are running around the yard with them (usually a precursor to eating them). Run back outside during a break in the action, retrieve shoes, lecture dogs ineffectually about not stealing my shoes when I’m picking up their ******* ****, lock them on sun porch (covered in mud), resume outage fun.

Off to clean sunporch and dogs and shoes. 🙂

“you gotta learn the hip slang, Dad!”

Last night was a particularly entertaining evening with MeeMee.  The funniest part was an impromptu lesson in slang for your partner/b/gfriend/spouse/etc.  Here’s the best we remember it.

Ace Boon Coon: Essentially, “partner in crime.”  Like Thelma and Louise.  Which she just saw for the first time and which sparked this conversation. 

Boo: Boyfriend/girlfriend.

Honey-lover: I think a friend who becomes a romantic interest over time, or your serious partner?  Not in the urban dictionary.

There were more.  The brain cells that were supposed to remember them were too full of 80s song lyrics, unfortunately.

My favorite conversation of the day:

Guy at work: Did you hear that the adult film industry is claiming they need a bailout?

Me: Now that’s stimulating the economy.

I’m in Ottawa taking an Oracle DBA course.  Spent last weekend with family and will spend next weekend as well.  Lots of pics, but here are a few of my favs thus far … you have to be logged into flickr to see ’em.

New baby cousin is here! Welcome Eli!

This is Max — I have to post once in a while.  So, I have only two first cousins, and on Friday one of them had a baby!  Baby Eli was born on Friday, January 23, 2009, at 4:11 p.m. weighing 8 pounds, 6 ounces, and measuring 21 inches long.   Congratulations, Dana and Justin!  And my other cousin made partner at his law firm on that same day!  Wow, what a family.  🙂

But – this is just so fun.
