A little game I play

When driving I play a little game. It's called Drunk, Texting or Talking. I look at the shitty drivers I'm behind and try to figure out what's impairing their ability to drive. Then I pull up to see if I'm right.

Most of the time it's talking on the phone. Every once in a while it's someone texting... Usually when it's texting it's a teen. I think teens shouldn't be able to drive until 18 but that will change once Miloh hits 16.

One of the things that scares me most about teens is their parents want them to be safe so they buy them an SUV. This makes it so much more dangerous for everyone else on the road.

So why am I rambling? It's that time of year again... I'm going to be scooting a lot. I had to wait a bit because it's been cold and the roads have been full of gravel from the winter. The gravel would be okay if my wheels were larger than 10 inches.

They finally swept the streets and the weather is nice... so I'll link to an older post that's my little plea to ask you all to not talk or text while driving. And remind you also that hands free is bullshit... It's not the holding the phone which is bad it's the distraction.

Here's the post from last year.

Another guest post

I did a little guest post a bit ago for mom-nom.com, the post is below the original pre-amble.

If you head to Mom-nom.com you can see a little guest post I wrote. It's about being a daddy blogger in the midst of a bunch of mommy bloggers.

The post is kicking off Tiffany's new site. It used to be called Feels Like Home but then some other blogger felt that she owned the name because she was thinking about to registering the name...even though really the name comes from a song. And I think it's pretty ridiculous that the other woman threatened a law suit because of this.

And that BS and some other twitter high school antics lead me to one of my greatest literary feats...a little rant on twitter.

The image is below, if you click on it you can read the whole thing...it goes from the bottom up. A little warning if you read it...there may be an f-bomb or 20...and now it's in the Library of Congress...awesome.

Took awhile... Here's an infographic of MF's first year

I finished this about a year ago just for my personal use but thought I'd share it. It's a visualization of MF's first year in numbers. Diapers (with and without poo), bottles and photos taken are the lines in the background. The markers are milestones. The ones on the top are regular milestones you'd see on a chart and the ones on the bottom are things he did that were firsts. Hint... Use the toggle full page at the lower right of the image... I'm not sure why zoom.it is making it all bitmappy but it's pretty readable. Once I find something better to show this I'll update the image. I'll also be adding to this. I have a lot more I can put on it but I'm not sure when I'll get to it... Check back in 15 years.

My hundredth post: seriously a clips post?

In my last post I mentioned I was working on getting some celebs for this post. I was in talks with the quarterback of the Saints whatever his name is...I'm sure I could look it up. I was also trying to get Conan...those talks were going really well but then NBC squashed it. There were more but the moral is it's just me.

So I thought I'd do a clips post to show my journey from dude who was scared of kids to dad. If you're new to my blog this will be a CliffsNotes version of what you missed. If you've been checking it out for awhile think of this as a best of. And since a blog can't work like a TV show if you want to get the full clip show experience you'll have to click through to the posts...but this will give you the gist.

In the beginning...Staci and I wanted to have a child but we both had totally different experience with kids. Kids have always been magically attracted to her...which is probably why she is so great at her career as a Montessori teacher…
