Another horrible Youtube video with millions of views

Wow!  Here's another horrible Youtube video that has 6 million+ views.  Hopefully everyone watching it was laughing as hard as I was.   "Lemme smang it giiirl."

Here are a few of my favorite lines from this one:
"Hope your muscles warmed up, you can't be lazy"
"You don't wanna get a tush contusion"

EXODesk - Desk of the Future

How much would you pay for a good computer desk?  A couple hundred dollars?
How about an ipad?  $500-$800 depending on the model.

OK.  Now, how about a 40" ipad that is built into a desk?  $1,299 sound about a right?  That's what EXOPC is hoping.  They just released this video of their EXOdesk which sports a 40" touchscreen surface and is set to debut some time next year.

I'm still in the air on whether having all that information and "cool-ness" at my fingertips while I'm trying to work would be a good thing.  I can only imagine that accidentally resting your hand in the wrong place on the surface and activating some app, or constantly seeing rss, email, google+ feeds scrolling down the side of the desk could be pretty distracting.  Though using it as a big picture frame that cycled through the family pictures might make me remember the reasons why I have to work.

Another horrible YouTube video with millions of views

Hahahaha...This is another one of those horrible YouTube videos with millions of views that I'm glad I missed when it was first uploaded. Oh well, my loss. But here it is so the rest of you can enjoy it.

Make sure to take note of his agent's email address so you can book him for events and possibly even a cameo or freestyle in your horrible YouTube vid.

Destined to be a villain

I believe my coworker said it best when he said "Some babies just want to watch the world burn".  I think this girl is destined to a real-life villain.

Tug Toner

Don't you love it when someone sends you something that makes you laugh out loud at your desk at work making everyone around wonder what is wrong with you.  Well this did it to me today.  Thanks Steve.

Nick, the unicorn, after having his horn removed

While organizing my pictures, I was digging through some old pictures and came across this one of Nick not looking too happy after busting his head.

River Ridge Knights Finish 2nd in Hobgood Park Weekend Tournament

The second place River Ridge Knights 

After losing the first game of the weekend tournament, and tying the "Quack"-worth team 3-3 in the third game, the Knights made a run for the title on Sunday.  They won two straight games and finally ended up losing to the same Acworth team in the championship game.  Congrats to Coach Dave and the Knights.

Not exactly sure what pose this is

This is part of my daily routine in the morning.  I usually do some stretching, then this while I'm brushing my teeth.

GT vs Clemson - Homecoming 2011

Buzz hugging the only Clemson fan that stormed the field

I'm still not sure why, but James has decided he's a Clemson fan.  (That he decided this when they were 8-0 is just a coincidence of course.)  With me being a Tech fan, I did as any good father would and trash talked his ear off.  My thinking was that we'd have fun trash talking before the game, then when Clemson spanked GT, he would be able to rub it in my face. didn't work out that way.

I got tickets to the game through work, so I drove down to Augusta that morning to watch James' football game.  Then he, Cade, and I jumped in the car and made our way to Atlanta.  We parked in our usual spot, by Rocky Mountain Pizza, and took Cade on a quick tour of campus before ending up in the hospitality tent on Peters parking deck eating free pulled pork sandwiches and playing on the blow up bouncers.  Unfortunately we missed most of the homecoming festivities that happened that morning, but campus was still packed with people and the atmosphere couldn't have been any better for a football game.

James, Cade, and Orwin Smith
As the game went on, and James began to realize that the Jackets were going to beat his Tigers, he got quieter and quieter.  Finally after the game we decided to jump the wall and rush the field with the students.  Needless to say, James was the only person on the field in Clemson orange, but Buzz and Tech's wide receiver, Orwin Smith, posed for pictures with him and Cade anyway.

Happy 2nd Birthday Chase!

The Baby Shower
We spent the first weekend in November this year down in Jackson for Chelsea and Richard's baby shower.  They had a sonogram done, but the results were sent to his sister.  They found out they were having a boy at the shower when they cut into the cake she brought because the inside was blue.

The Birthday Party
While we were down there we also had a little birthday party for Chase.  This past year he has been big on three things Toy Story (or WoodyBuzz as he calls it), Cars, and Thomas.  So Rainy made him a Thomas cake and he got some Cars toys, Cars 2, a Thomas flashlight, Thomas puzzles, and a few other odds and ends.

The Sick One
Tim after the swelling went down some
It seems like every time we make a trip down to Jackson, someone ends up getting sick.  The past few times down have been Tim, but this time it was Nina's turn.  Poor girl had stomach pains that lasted from Saturday morning until we got back Sunday night.  At least she didn't get attacked by ants and swell up like Tim did.

Trick-or-Treat 2011

Chase dressed up as Buzz

Halloween 2011
This year all the boys had fun dressing up and trick-or-treating.  Ty and his buddies went as fruit.  He was the orange, while Joey Wilken was an apple, and Tyler K was a banana.  Chase wore his yellow jacket costume (and even let us put the hood up for a while).  We took Ty and Chase to a neighborhood we'd never been in before.  They take Halloween seriously over there.  95% of the couple hundred houses were decorated and were giving out candy.  Most of the cul-de-sacs even had people sitting around in lawn chairs handing out candy, and there were some pretty intricate decorations going on too.  

James, Nick and Tim went trick-or-treating in Augusta like usual with all of their cousins.  This year Megan came up with the idea to dress up each cousin as a different smurf.  So around the neighborhood they went on the trailer with 10+ smurfs (and James as Gargamel).
