Name that noise

January 31, 2005 By: bio Category: General

I’ve put a little game on the forum.

There’s an mp3 of 14 songs in 34 seconds. All the songs hail from the 80’s and all were popular singles.

How many can you name (Artist and Title)?

It’s been a crappy week.

I need beer.

My wife was cleaning the other day and decided to go for broke in the bathroom.

She got out the vacuum and was removing all the dust bunnies from the top of the mirror, cabinets, etc. when she decided to dust the top of the door (an act that I, as a man, would have NEVER EVER thought to do).

What she found was priceless:
Which way to the shitterrrrr?  Oh... this way!

It says: “Rev —> Entry Shitterrrrr ”

OMFG!! I about died when she told me about this! It must have been put there by the people who built the house back in ’93.

We’re going to check all the doors tonight to see what else might await.

A retraction.

I had a huge post here about debit collection companies.

I had gotten a call from one of them (well… a computer called my house and asked me to call an 800 number). I figured I was going to have another go-around on something that’s supposed to be dead and gone.

Instead, they were looking for someone else. I told them I didn’t know anyone by the name they gave me and they said they’d remove my number from their computer.

Life is good.

Now we’re cooking with gas!

We got several more inches of snow last night.

Since I’ve had my back surgery, shoveling snow has been off my list of things to do. Unfortunately, my sons are lazy sods who can’t seem to be motivated to assist with this (without threats of death, or even worse… loss of their internet connections).

So… today we ran out and purchased this little bad boy:

fear this!

Troy-Bilt Strom 8526 $798.00
8.5 HP / 26″ Two-Stage Snowthrower
• All Wheel Drive – 6 Forward/2 Reverse speeds with no pushing!
• 8.5 HP Tecumseh Snow King Engine
• 20″ Intake Height
• Push-Button Electric Start
• Just One Hand Operation – keep the unit moving while easily adjusting the pitch or rotating the chute
• 4-Way Chute Control with Single Lever Joy Stick
• 26″ Clearing width
• Built-In Headlight
• Reinforced Steel Housing
• 15″ x 4.8″ X-Trac Snow Tires
• Standard Chute Clearing Device

Just wow!! This monster can toss snow like it’s nothing! Even the crap that the city plows put all over our sidewalk was no match for it.

Fun!! 🙂
