Count Your Blessings

"When his life was ruined, his family killed, his farm destroyed, Job knelt down on the ground and yelled up to the heavens, "Why god? Why me?" and the thundering voice of God answered, "There's just something about you that pisses me off." - Stephen King.

Greetings from the home of the ever famous A-ren. You may call him A-ren the cuddly. Oh but there is a second side to the A-ren. The tyrannical dictator who rules with an iron teething ring. These photos were released just moments before the photographer went missing. We can only hope this is the beginning of the end for this madman in size 3 diapers. Beware...He has learned to crawl this week and is now mobile!

I'ld like to tip my hat to every parent out there who survived the raising of their child. Oh yes I did mean to use the word survive. Although the emotional high of raising this little wiggle-man has been easily the greatest action I have ever undertook, I have never been more tired in my life. The energy expenditure of working full time and being the center of this little guys world has been enormous. I have had days where I am struggling just to make it without mentally snapping, pulling my mouse out of my laptop, and doing my best Xena-shriek while using it as a bolo.

I stopped watching the news again. I've decided I can't take all this garbage that they are force feeding me under the guise of important information. War, tsunami, mudslide, homeland security...I give up! My Eddie Izzard DVD has gotten a lot of use as background noise (it's important to expose the A-ren early to British humor before he starts watching bullshit primetime comedies on NBC). I am also coming out in this post regarding a very embarrassing issue. Yes, I, BigdaddyJ, watched Dora the Explorer with my son yesterday. I sang, I pointed at the TV, I marveled at her ability to switch from Spanish to English with nary a thought. My God (or your God) what have I stooped to for entertainment. Luckily jenny grabbed the remote and turned Ben Stein on (A-ren has a strange fixation on him. Should I be concerned?).

This weeks entertainment - Eddie Izzard - Circle - Yes I will have the Penne!


  • Dude. Stein is still on? Is he throwing his money around? YES you should be concerned.. that brother worked for Nixon. Though man.. given the present options.. at least Nixon was decent on the domestic sometimes.

    Welcome back my brotha. And by brotha I mean biological brother. Cause thats you. Youre him.
