Back when we had very young kids, like < 2 years old, I mastered the art of the silent dishwasher unload. This allowed my wife to sleep as long as possible by not rousing the little ones.

So I figured I'd call upon this dark sorcery once again this morning to try and give Karen as much sweet slumber as possible. (Clemson wore her out emotionally yesterday :-)  )

My performance, while not flawless, was impressive. I used a very slight angle of approach with the plates for near silent landings. Like pieces of silverware were grouped by similarity and then slowly lowered into their temporary resting places. Glasses were pushed to the outside of the carriage as they came out of the dishwasher to avoid clanging against other silicate soldiers and found their home bases in the cabinet with a stealthy discipline.

When that work was completed, I then quietly prepared Camden's Synthroid leveraging two teaspoons with ninja-like deftness exhibiting speed and accuracy while preserving the tranquility that morning brings.

With little challenge I then prepared my coffee with only the sound equivalent of a mouse yawning.

5 minutes later 3 firetrucks and 2 ambulances went screaming by and woke the boys up.

I would have gotten away with it all if it hadn't been for those meddling EMS vehicles!!!

It gets done so fast, you'll be out of breath. Wait, still talking about the electronics, right?

I wonder how few lines it would take me to code up a Trump Response generator that is 70% congruent with reality...

I have a long history of wearing Oakley glasses that goes all the way back to 1989 when I started cycling. My first pair was a limited edition M-Frame pair that were a gift from a very special friend ('cause when you make 17k you don't drop coin on Oakley caliber glasses). Those were to be my forever glasses, but I accidentally crushed them while changing a flat on New Hope Church road in Chapel Hill about 15 years ago. In the interim, I've tried other bands and bought some entry level Oaklies, but I've never had the courage to ever replace my best of the best glasses. My friend +James Lee​ from the UK turned me on to these Oakley Radar Paths with photochromic lenses and they fit PERFECTLY. Thank you James for sharing these with me, but more importantly, thank you Karen for thinking I'm with it.

Excellent! They are superb glasses, inspite on the cost. Ridden with them in most conditions and perform flawlessly aside from fogging up at the lights in cold conditions.

Well we were supposed to go to the Reindeer Games at Lifetime Fitness, but Camden puked a mile before we got there (in a parking lot, we had a warning thank God). So it was back home. I figured I'd complete QA on the garage swing structure. So far, so good!

Yeah I heard if he became president they would need to upgrade Air Force One to a C5A and limit the press core to 5.

None of the service providers act like they want our business. Our money yes, our business no.

The food is GREAT and the service is outstanding. So far I've had the fish tacos and the chicken burrito. The tacos were mouth watering and the chicken burrito was just like I like it. The burritos came with a yummy side of black beans (that had corn and cilantro mixed in) and salsa. I've eaten there twice and I'm taking my kids there for dinner tonight. Keep it up Enrique!!!

Outstanding food. My wife and I not only like Thai, but cook it on occasion. The Thom Ka chicken is quite rich and this is becuase they use a coconut cream base, but the proportion of all the other ingredients is precise and perfect. I had the house green curry with chicken at 2.5 peppers on a scale of one to four and it was perfect. The version of green curry they use here includes the baby egg plant and green peas. I am NOT a fan of eggplant, but the green curry had saturated it and I ate four significant pieces one right after another. Wife had a red curry based shrimp dish and reported it outstanding; spot on heat, sweet and overall flavor. The atmosphere was very nice too. The place is huge. We're visiting from Cary, NC and when we come back this way, we will go back eagerly!!!
