My new man bag, fanny pack, side satchel-type thing and iPhone case..

I started carrying one of these things around in college, in the early 90's when a classmate had one and I saw how much crap you could cram in them. I endured many unflattering remarks and fashion comparisons but the things were too practical to give a damn! The first one I had was black. Then a few years later I scored a brown leather one and carried that around for years until it fell apart(I've always been more of a brown-leather jacket wearing guy than a black leather jacket guy, and it carried over here) . Well, it's that time of year again, several side satchels later, the old one has fallen apart and I was on the lookout for a new one when I happened to walk into a Roots store.

I saw this thing called a "village pack in tribe leather". This thing was perfect! The belt is a bit short though. It JUST fits. This ain't for the stout of waist.

Since I had just bought an iPhone I also did some research on cases for the 3Gs and decided on a great flip case from BeyzaCASES. They had one in a nice vintage leather. I've already dropped the phone in the snow and left it there for about five minutes with no ill effects in this case, so it's held up fine thus far! It's got holes in all the right spots so you can do whatever you need to do and leave it in the sleeve.

I've had them strapped on for a few weeks now and someone told me if I added a hammer that I'd look like Mike Holmes.

New Bigfoot sculpt!

Miss Tiggywinkles had one of these waiting on the shelf for me. It can go outside on the front lawn too! Thanks to Kirok for spotting him and emailing a photo a couple of days ago!

He's 16 inches tall!

The BB e-cigarette

A coworker has stumbled upon a new way to quit smoking. They're called e-cigs. They use a Vail of 24 mg Tennesee smoke juice to simulate smoke and give the user a tiny bit of nicotine. The smoke is actually steam. With one of these rigs you go through the motions of smoking, with a huge decrease in the toxic intake of a regular cigarette.

The funny thing is when someone lights up one of these things indoors. It's technically not illegal . It makes for some interesting confrontations. An expensive way to quit smoking.

Hoodat! Let's shoot mah TV when my football team loses!!!

Kirok sent me this. It's scary because these people live in the most powerful country in the world. Luckily they're pretty south of us (Louisiana), and thankfully they lost that war back in the 1800's, so the more North you go, the less, uhh.. I dunno. I won't go there...

Unless he was doing his to force an upgrade, maybe he had his eye on a nice new 65 inch plasma, I don't see the sense in this. Although it's somewhat captivating. Like a car accident. And the collection of guns is interesting. One funny part is when one of their friends shows up wearing an orange jacket just so he doesn't get shot in the excitement. Smart man..

Photos of my lava lamp

Took a photo of my lava lamp the other day. The lamp is a secret code in my house. When it's on, it means something.

Sometimes my kids turn it on and get me in trouble

Lava lamps are cool!

The little Christmas tree contest

We had a little mini Christmas tree decorating contest at work last week. This was my entry.

I didn't win...

I think it's because I've recently moved into a new building, two buildings away from where I used to work and my 70-some co-worker ex-neighbors were too lazy to walk over and see my creation. We couldn't send photos because the whole point of the exercise was to walk over and see the entries in person and get to know the new people in the division.

Oh well.

I think mine rocked!!!

It had Mini me! The Energizer Bunny! A Borg! The Linux penguin, Mr Bigglesworth! Sideshow Bob! The Stanley Cup!

I mean, it didn't have chocolates or creatively bent paper-clips or pipe cleaners or things like that in it like some folks.. But it had class and style..

Wait next year!

It was still the coolest.
