Embarrassing Jerry

There is a Flickr group contest for the best sleeping cat picture. As of now, Jerry is in the second place. Voting is open until May 19. Please go vote for Jerry!

I know, I know. I should be posting about my new baby Yuuma! Her birth story will be posted in a month or so…

Who’s got two thumbs and is $70 richer today? This guy.

ncaa 2008 winner … kansas and me

Thanks to Kansas, I have won the office pool. I hated Bill Self when he left Illinois to coach for Kansas, but boy, this guy can recruit or what? The title game was an exciting one, too — with the last-second 3-pointer to push the game to OT and all. I just love this stuff.

And not to brag, but this is the third year in a row that I’ve picked the eventual winner of the tourney. And in 2005 I had Illinois picked when they lost in the final — how could I not?

JFo’s Birthday Scafunjer Hunt

Tuesday, February 5, 2008

My coworker JFo sure knows how to have fun. For his 34th birthday celebration, he put together the most elaborate scavenger hunt competition, and I was lucky (?) enough to be invited. It seemed daunting (see the rules here while it’s up), but I said what the heck.

I was crammed in a car driving around for most of the day, I spent more money than I planned to, and the judging phase lasted waaaay too long. Worst of all, our team didn’t even come close to winning. In fact, we came 13th out of the 15 teams that participated.


But you know what? I had lots of fun. I got to do some things I had never done before, like:

…and on and on. We didn’t win but we sure beat the crap out of the Careless Bears, and that’s something I’ll have with me for the rest of my life!

Yes, you read about it here first, folks. Yummy or Crummy will be adding another blog post here sometime in the very near future. Do hold your breath, and don’t sit back and relax, because before you know it my new blog post will kick you in the teeth and throw you down like your daddy never could, no matter how much he drank.
