My favorite little Doctor Who fans dressed as some of their most beloved characters.  Sadly, in our neighborhood no one knew who they were!  #twt

First load of stuff to the new place, occupancy permits taken care of, kids are registered for school and the truck is going in for repairs, it has been a productive day. Now back to packing...

I'm not 100% sure but I think we're trying to move big stuff on the 6th. We're trying to get some of the little stuff out of here over the next couple of weeks. Always fun! :S

Days like today really make me wonder why I've never bought myself a pair of shorts; thankfully my old hiking skirt seems to be a good enough substitute. :) I know it's not really worth fixing, but it's also not much fun to think of another Summer without air in the truck.

Watched. Cried. Loved the final words before the launch. Sigh, stupid fucking government. The future is in the stars.

I Spy, Family Fluxx, Toot and Otto, Ingenious and Airsoft guns... one of these things is not like the others, not that Aiden really cares.

Oh man, me too! He's asked me twice today how many he can get if he doesn't ask for anything else for his birthday. The child is obsessed!

Today I spent a while thinking and then writing in defense of Eminem's music... I respect his message when it's a positive one, but I never thought I'd be on this side of the fence! :) The discussion was actually more about preteens, the music they enjoy listening to, and what makes it acceptable... or not. So, Google-verse, what were your experiences growing up? What are you going through now and/or how do you plan to deal with it when the time comes with your own kids? Everyone please feel free to throw your two cents in, this really interests me and I'd love to learn more!

This post is old, but I feel compelled to answer due to the nature of the question.  I have very eclectic taste in music, ranging from Classical to Brazilian and Norwegian death metal and just about everything in-between.  That's something that has come about over time as I would branch out and find something new that struck me as interesting (or reflected my emotional state of mind at the time).

Growing up, my parents were pretty strict.  There were no book burnings mind you, they were just "confiscated" and I never saw them again (usually).  D&D was "of the devil" although fantasy and sci-fi was perfectly fine.. even such books as the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever... go figure that one out.  Music was no exception either.  At the time I was listening to a lot of classic rock (KSHE was the best that STL had to offer) and a good friend turned me on to Black Sabbath.  That (again, go figure) was fine... for a time.  Some punk/alternative was fine.  Bauhaus was okay and Black Flag made it through just fine too.  Circle Jerks?  Sex Pistols?  Nope.  Again, go figure.  And no, my parents weren't the perfect children either.  Quasi-stoner hippish is the best I can think of.  After a period of time (closer to my junior year in highschool), there was a mass purging of my tapes, including previously acceptable artists.  The reason?  Because I listened to them too much and that bothered them [my parents].

Needless to say, that's all ancient history and I am a <twitch> perfectly normal <twitch> adult.  ;).  As to if (when) my wife and I have children, I expect that there will be more pushback from her in regards to questionable material.  As a survivor of the "ban it all" mentality, I'm more inclined to not allow it, but only after we (the parents and the kids) discuss it.  Making something verboten without a logical explanation does nothing [for me] other than make me want to explore it further and alienate me from those that deem it forbidden.  It is so much more productive to discuss the subject rationally and at the very least make the individuals subjected to your rule feel like their voice is heard and at least respected in their own right.

And yea, if I had a kid in their teens right now who wanted to go to a Casualties show and felt like I was "cool enough" to hang with, we would be there in a heartbeat.  

The one decent thing that came out of the ban mentality of my youth was that although these were my parents rules for their house, there would be one day where I could do what I liked in my own house (assuming I take responsibility for my actions, of course), and of course, that's exactly what I do now.

Sorry for the Tolstoi-esque response, just wanted to throw in my two bits.

TIL that it's actually cheaper to buy a t-shirt I like from Qwerty (in the UK) than to order a packet of the candy they send with said t-shirt. sigh $39.27 in shipping?!?!!! It looks like my sweets addiction shall remain unfulfilled... unless I can convince World Market to order them for me, hm..., lol! :D

Thank you again Terrie, I really hope it will be a good thing for all people considered. I will post pics, maybe even Saturday when we go pick up the keys! :)

Yay Katie! I never really knew where you lived, it will be awesome to have you closer! :)

I didn't realize that stores only sell plain ol' beer in cans. Not that it's a bad thing, I was just expecting a bit more of a choice. As it is, there are two sriracha buttered chickens sitting on Budweiser cans in the oven and they smell fantastic! Dinner made me think of you +Adam Pinilla, you only need half a can of beer for each one and it would have been good to have someone here who doesn't drink only dark stuff. Though now that I think of it, I don't remember ever seeing you with a canned beer. Ah well. Thus ends the pre-dinner rambling, I must go and make potatoes and veggies. :)

Get ready for the terrible Physics joke of the day! This totally cracked me up yesterday; I have to say that I kind of liked Reddit without so many pics. :)

Newton, Pascal, and Einstein are playing hide-and-go-seek in heaven.
Einstein closes his eyes and starts counting.
Pascal goes and hides behind a cloud.
Newton stays where he is, and draws a 1mx1m square on the floor around him.
Einstein finishes counting and turns around.
"Ah ha, Newton! I found you!"
"No you haven't, you've found one Newton over 1m2 . . . You found Pascal."
