Wow…so I had this wonderful, long-winded thing I wanted to talk about, and I forgot what it was.  I’m near worthless…  OH!!  So get this!!  Griffen can do flips now! 

I should probably get the doctor’s number on speed dial now…

Yeah, I picked up Griffen yesterday, and the babysitter was like, “Look!  He can do flips!!”  He put his head down, they braced his backside, and then he flipped over his head.  I was just in total shock and awe…  I couldn’t do anything but leave my jaw gaping open.  Of course, that was mainly for all the emergency room visits and bills from said visits compiling in my head.  Don’t get me wrong, I want him to be adventurous and do crazy stuff like that, it’s just the only thing is I know where he got his genes from, and it doesn’t bode well.  I’m a clutz and reckless as it is, and Mo, well, she’s got issues standing straight up at times.  So, it could be ugly…  Still though, it was cool to see him do it, though.  It’s like he learns a new trick every other day.  If I can grab a video of him tumbling, I’ll post it here, because it was freaking grand. 

Okay, so I TOTALLY TOTALLY NEED THIS.  Like, desperately.  It’s a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo (albeit VII), and, more importantly, it’s in the same scale as my G.I. Joe figures.  Not only that, but it transforms into a big friggin robot!!!  How cool is that???  They also have one in 1:12 scale, and it looks nice.  It’s a later model (IX), which is why I’m even interested in it.  I wouldn’t pay $35 for a knock off transformer without a pretty good reason.  And it’s a Lancer Evo…by me, that’s a pretty good reason. :)  I hope I’ll have enough scratch in my paycheck next week so I can get at least the smaller one.  That would be an AWESOME addition to my collection!

What??  It would!

Stupid McDonald’s.  I hate eating at McD’s, but I love playing McDonald’s Monopoly.  I don’t know why…I never win.  Hell, I never even come CLOSE to winning.  The closest I ever came was in high school, a girl and I thought we had won the house.  Nope…she had a different piece.  DANG IT.  I do get to keep the pounds, though!  It’s a conspiracy to make me a heifer.  I know it is.  And I will SO use McDonald’s for making me balloon about 4 years ago.  I absolutely had no part in it.  I was the victim, I tell you!  They’re all against me! 😛

I found my Pearl Jam Versus album this morning.  Oddly enough, on top of the computer.  Strangest places…  Anyways, so I’m a happy camper, and have been listening to it pretty much nonstop.  Go, Animal, Glorified G, Rearviewmirror and Rats are all really great songs.  I think the album is basically know for the song, Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town.  Mouthful, right?  I think the song’s over before you finish reading the title…  Meh, I don’t care for the song.  That, and Daughter.   Oddly enough, two of the biggest songs off the album.  No matter, though.  I dig it.  There’s two more Pearl Jam CD’s I have to add yet, both have only a couple songs on them.  One has Spin the Black Circle…love that song.  The other has Yellow Ledbetter.  I also uploaded Metallica’s Black album (finally).  So now I’ll get to listen to those songs whenever.  Speaking of listening to music…

I knew it was going to happen.  I just didn’t know when.  Lil Dooder, my IPod Nano is AWOL.  I KNEW that was going to happen.  I lose stuff all the freaking time.  Of course, it doesn’t help that my wife will put things ‘up’ from time to time (re: move crap without me knowing it, causing it to be lost for some time), and my son’s a kleptomaniac in training.  That little turd will swipe something and just take off with it.  So, he might have swiped it and put it Lord knows where.  Or, the simple fact is, I misplaced it somewhere.  That’s more likely.  But two other people might have had their hands on it…  Grrr.  The quest is on to find that little thing…
