Berfday Boy

Posted by Nanc

It was his Bonez’ birthday this week (yesterday, to be exact). Birthdays are celebrated for an extended week at our house: weekend to weekend.

So far, he has received all things that make a Matty happy:

  • a kewl pad of diner placemats
  • PEZ shoes
  • PEZ display stands
  • battery-operated, swimming pool shark
  • spinning books
  • spumoni ice cream
  • Weeds season 2 DVD

And there’s so much more left to do/give (get, in his case)!

Come on and wish this Bonez a Happy!

Read on only if you want to pity me or listen to my whimpers (or, more likely, kick me in the caboose and tell me to get real).

Buildin’ stuff

Posted by Matty

I needed a new computer for an upcoming project at home (hereafter referred to as “Project X”). Instead of going out to Best Buy or Circuit City, I figured that I would save a couple of bucks and build one from parts.
