If you get a new cell phone, GET THE INSURANCE!!!!!

Bill ruined 3 or 4 cell phones before we got new ones on a new contract, and I got him the insurance on the new one. Silly me, I didn't get it for mine. And my phone went for a little swim today... I sure hope it dries out and works (yeah, right... I know how well electronics get along with water).

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa :(

"Storm of the Century"

As my sister posted, we had some nasty weather roll through our area the past 2 days.
Here are 2 pix. The first is as the storm was about to hit. You could feel the electricity in the air.
The second pic is as the storm rolled across the Maumee River, over our heads.

Question of the Day

Someday, I might be a mom. I might have a curious child. He or she may ask me questions I have no answer for. An example? Here's one that popped into my head today (you know, that inner child thing...):

When blind people sleep, do they close their eyes? And if they live alone, do they turn on lights at night?

Today, I spent the better part of my day backing up data. From 5 1/4 floppies. I must say, they really took me back to childhood. No real memories per se, but vauge recollections. Like the pink Datalife sleeves remind me of Cathy's old apartment off of Holland-Sylvania.

Remember the old text-based adventure games? The ones where you meet up with an ogre and it asks you what you want to do. You type in "kill the ogre," and it tells you it doesn't understand the word "kill." Those drove me nuts! I could never figure out how to kill the stupid ogre!

Aah, the good-old-days.

Kids Say the Darndest Things...

Ok, I don't have any kids to post about, but that won't stop me!

I was thinkging the other day about some "kid-isms" I have come across in my life, and here they are. Keep in mind that some of these "kids" are parents now.

"Rubby, rubby, rubby. Pretty red dog"(now repeat several times)

"Dad, It's raining." (said in a tent, during a downpour)

"I hate something to drink!"

"That used to be a worm, but now it's nothing" (pointing to a greasy smear on the sidewalk)

I know there are more, I'm just having a hard time thinking of them right now.
