Stupid Autocorrect

As seen on a post from the Los Angeles Dodgers Facebook page:


Now I don’t know about you but I usually have some urine to spare. And if it helps the Dodgers get back on a winning streak then I’m willing to pee my brains out for that W.

But what I don’t get is how autocorrect didn’t catch Dempster and change it to Dumpster. The mind boggles.

Come on, Dodgers. You’ve lost 5 in a row and relinquished 1st place. Urine serious trouble.

Review: LG Optimus Elite for Virgin Mobile

eliteYou might recall a post I wrote in April in which I was debating whether to stick with Virgin Mobile or move on to T-Mobile since Virgin was going to make it practically impossible for users to avoid rate increases by implementing said increases upon the activation of any smartphone released after May 2012.

I thought long and hard about it and decided to stick with them by buying the Optimus Elite, and here is my review of the device which I’ve had for a couple of weeks.

It’s Summertime

This pretty much explains my absence as of late.

Summertime obviously means that our son is out of school and this year more than any previous year, he has been driving us absolutely nuts by wanting to stay up late and watch cartoons into the wee hours of the morning (which he never makes it to anyhow).

This irks me in particular because most of the stuff he watches is unwatchable to me. I’m just not a big TV watcher so to me it’s a genuine waste of time, cartoons or otherwise. I don’t even own a TiVo. How’s that for apathy?

To add to this, all of his friends are away on vacations or doing other sorts of things that prohibit them from playing. As a result, me and Ann have been parents as well as taking their places and it’s been fairly exhausting.

So what does all of this mean?

Little to no time to blog, which is one of the few quiet times I ever get any time of the year. By the time Anthony heads to bed, Ann and I are both seeking the asylum and comfort of our own bed. Anthony’s been going to bed around 10pm and after a busy day of being parents and playmates, the last thing we want to do is…anything. Sure, we can send him to bed earlier but he’ll just lie there and mumble all night about being in bed and being bored.

I know, we’re only doing our jobs as parents but man, I don’t recall previous summers being this challenging or difficult.

And that explains my recent lack of posts. I’ll try to get back on it provided I can get more time to do so but until then, y’all get what you get.

Bear with me…

Another 5k Done!

I ran the Wet&Wild 5k this morning and it was a fun event. Here are a few pictures.

The course.

Waiting to start. Yes, I wore my Kings sweater!

WetnWild 5k 013

Hence the name Wet & Wild 5k. If you don’t go through the water, you must take the Walk of Shame and your time is not recorded. Believe me, the water is a much-needed break.

In the water!

…and the reward. You can see my time and route via Sports Tracker. I had a great time and am looking forward to my next event, whichever one that may be 🙂
