Who Am I?

I have to admit, since Sawyer's birth, things have been a little crazy around the ol' MonkShack. So, after almost a week of Debra prodding and poking at me, I finally gave in yesterday to get out of the house and go see a movie. Our thinking was that a movie would be a nice, two-hour break from reality, giving me a chance to focus on something other than Sawyer and, as a bonus, it was cheap (well, cheaper than sending me to the mall at least....).

I'm not sure what I was thinking, but I thought that I Am Legend would be a good movie to see. Now, in all honestly, I had some idea what the movie was about, but I didn't do too much research into the plot, etc. That was a mistake. Here's a little pointer, just in case you ever find yourself in a similar situation.

If you've just had a baby and are emotionally and physically drained. Your internal reserves are near zero and you have trouble keeping a coherent thought in your head for more than a minute or two, do not, I repeat DO NOT, go see an emotionally draining movie about the end of the world. This will not help you or make you feel any better. In fact, if my experience has any reliability as an indicator, it will almost certainly make you feel physically sick and almost make you vomit in response.

Yes, I have no idea who I am or what I'm doing. I guess I had just thought that my old hardy self was still around and could withstand the abuse. I was wrong. Oh so wrong!

Maybe I should have gone to see Enchanted instead....

Desktop TD 1.5 Addiction - In Full Force

Okay, I've been struggling with Desktop Tower Defense . I've been frustrated, I've been thrilled. As Debra says "its all about hopes and dreams, hopes and dreams." Well, quite frankly, I've had a lot of dreams about completing just the medium level. And up until today, they've been just that, dreams. I'm now please to say that I've graduduated. I've completed all 50 phases of the medium level! Hurray for me! (Lets face it, I'm sure you're not saying that, so let me have a little self-congratulatory praise for a minute...sheesh.) Although, even though I completed all the phases, my score still doesn't rival some of the board leaders. I'm a little confused...I only let 4 creeps through, yet my score is a couple of thousand less than the leaders. How is that possible? Can anyone clue me in? Anyway, I figured I'd share my maze with you, although - after looking at hundreds of other mazes, I've come to realize its less abou

A Year in the Making...

Toward the end of last summer, Debra approached me with an idea. Usually, her ideas are pretty scary and involve the purchase of a mini-horse. (Thanks for that, Amanda!) However, this time, I have to admit that I got wrapped in her idea, and as usual, made it a much more complicated affair. Put simply, Debra wanted a video that she could air on FlyerTV, UD's campus channel, that would provide some publicity for her office, the Office of Community Standards & Civility . She wanted something subtle and funny. One afternoon, we took the video cam out and spent about two hours driving around in the setting sun filming for her video. Yes, I did make her sign a release - no illegal, hidden spycams here, no siree bob! Then the editing began. That's pretty much what delayed the release of her video until today. I happened to be cleaning out some old hard drives and found the 75% completed video and decided it was high time that I actually finished it for her. I hope I've manage

new baby!
