Here’s a gun and hot weather for you, kid.

And like lightning from the sky there was a great crackling noise, and suddenly,  standing before you was the Blogger. Do you run? Do you have time to hide? Or do you stand there slack jawed in amazement as  you panic in a wild attempt to do all three at once? For when he returns none shall be prepared.”   – The Book of the Blogger 5:17








Okay, so I was rudely awakened this morning by the sound of an alarm clock and gunfire.

Now before you say “Murphy! You need to pack your stuff and get out of there!” I ought to explain the normal summer routine of the neighborhood kids. You see, since the beginning of the summer they have all been into buying airsoft pellet guns. Anything from the smallest pop pistol to the loudest belt feed turret machine gun. So on this day, unbeknownst to me in advance, they had a “Battle at dawn”.  They were walking around, all padded up from head to their toes and wearing goggles for protection while it was eighty seven degrees out…

“Now thats all nice and funny, but what does this have to do with your return, Murphy?” you might wonder. Well I’ll tell you simply. After my initial waking up I realized it was hot. It was really, really hot. I tried to use the laptop fan to cool off…needless to say, that was a bad idea. After getting a ice pack for my face, I laid down and decided on telling people how wonderful my day has been going. 

How has yours been?

Stargazing and Jack Johnson.



I have always loved looking at the stars in the night sky ever since I was a little child. 

At night I will sometimes walk into my backyard in the evening just to gaze up at them. However, sometimes I forget just how spectacular the night sky can be. The lights along the street where I live kept all but the brightest stars from shining through.

Tonight though the stars were everywhere. The entire sky is 
filled with them. Thousands upon thousands of them were glowing and 
shining with happiness. It was so bright and beautiful. My mouth did one of those things where you smile ever so faintly and then the next thing you know you’re smiling like a idiot and laughing.

As I looked upon them that only one thing could make me happier.  If  Kitty had been with me I would’ve be in absolute joy.  So, Love, this one is for you. I know listening to Jack Johnson is one of your favorite pastimes and stargazing is one of mine, here’s a song with both.

“WTH?!” Picture Dump

So I was looking through all my picture folders on my computer and I saw a folder just POP up labeled “WTH?!”  

(Okay, fine it was actually just sitting next to “screen-shots” and “asdfsadasd” )

As with most of the things on my computer I KINDA had a idea of what was in it, but then again I thought I KINDA had a idea of how to put up the Christmas lights a few years back and that didn’t go so well… 

I slipped off the ladder shown in the foreground. After hanging upside down for roughly five minutes banging against the house, my sister came take pictures.

Anyway, I (in a fit of daring) opened the folder.

This, Dear reader, is the entire contents. . .

Okay, so I was really wierded out by then. 

Next time I’m going to keep better track of what I download.

Ninjas can’t catch you…or can they?

And a final note:

Beware, ninjas come in all shapes and sizes….
