I have the biggest problem with "Gangster's Paradise." I'll hear the opening chords and start singing along "As I walk through the valley where I harvest my grain... Oh, it's not that version..."

The Casey and Andy site is still up; if you move up to the galactanet.com site, you can find his other, short-lived webcomic "Cheshire Crossing" (still waiting for the next update!), and a bunch of his early short fiction, some of which hints at future greatness ("Theft of Pride" might be the best of the lot, though of course YMMV). He also had a whiteboard program called Gametable that he took down some years ago, right when I had an interest in a whiteboard program

Oh, I see he uploaded a new short story last year. Still active-ish. A-mat.

The fact that "local oscillator leakage" is sometimes abbreviated LOL in technical documents makes me LOL.

With me, I'll hear a song and think, oh so that's the original! All the while singing Weird Al's lyrics.

Dog

Pearl doesn't really mix it up with other dogs at dog park, but she will bark at dogs that are wrestling--from a safe distance. *
She may run with dogs, but only on the outside, and any large dog that gets in her face will get a nice view of her pearly whites.
She really goes to get petted by as many people as possible because otherwise her life would be like a V.C. Andrews novel.


*[this caution is actually a good thing--if she was rough and tumble, she sure as hell wouldn't step foot in a dog park ever again]

My 5 year old put two toy light sabers up his sleeves and was running around with the blades sticking out. My husband said "Edward Lightsaber-hands." We were giggling over this and making jokes about using the bathroom and our kids were all like "what?".
