Cicadas, Domino, and You

I don’t know if there’s a longer version of this song, this is the only one I can find, but it crawls into my head, heh, and won’t leave whenever I hear about the cicada double brood event happening in the US this summer. I guess two different cycles of cicadas are converging, and a …

Sleep Talkin’ 5. The Bit, I Believe, Is Still Alive!

In our last installment of let’s make fun of what Carin says in her sleep, I thought this little bit would be a thing of the past now that Santa had arrived. But apparently, it still has some life in it, although a little less. There’s one interesting pattern we have noticed: if there is …

Anything But Boring: My Meeting With Domino

So, for the purposes of history, I’m posting a recording of my meeting with Domino. But I have to apologize for its quality. Without thinking, I recorded it while wearing my Aftershokz headphones which, while they’re pretty great, don’t record other voices in the room as well as the voice of the person wearing them. …

Anything But Boring: The Journey Home

So off we go. neerome! Wee! Can you tell I’m on the plane? Yup. Dom cruised through the airport with no trouble. Ok, he might have slurped a TSA agent but hey! He was petting, er, patting him down! We went through the metal detectors and only metal-covered Domino set them off. But when they …

At 1:30 Pacific, 4:30 Eastern (the rest of you can figure that out for yourselves), the ceremony will be streaming live on YouTube. Assuming that everything works like …

Anything But Boring: Day 13

Ee ee ee! Training is essentially over. All we have to do is go to the gift shop and get ready to get out of here. I’m mildly concerned that my suitcase might protest under the weight of old and new cargo and I might have to do some rearranging. But I’m not terrified, just …

Anything But Boring: Day 12

Good day, and welcome to day 12. I just had to do that for my fellow Canadian in class. To find each other once, we made the Bob and Doug call. I’m sure the instructors thought we were loopy. I’m not sure what we’re doing. The schedule is a little vague. I think we’re going …
