Uncle slacker

So I've been pretty busy at work this week and haven't had much time to blog. You would think that maybe I would do it when I get home but, uh, eff that. Work is for blogging. I don't really have much time right now but I'm going to make time. You know why? Because I love you. That's why.

So, big news first. My brother and his wife had their second child on Monday! So I'm an uncle^2. Pretty cool, huh? It's another baby boy, too. He's got an older brother that turned two in December. I imagine that house will not be a fun place to be when the babies aren't happy. Good thing they aren't mine and I don't live there!

I, too, have a new baby now. His name is Kindle. He loves reading. What's that you say? You want to see pictures of him, too? He's adorable.

Really though it's pretty damn cool. I am still amazed by the e-ink technology they use in these things. I imagine that within a few years they will be able to do color images and that will completely change the world of print media forever.

In other news, I feel like for the last two days I have been not-all-here. No idea why, either. Weird, huh? Like the last two days are just kind of a montage of cold weather and bright images. Hopefully this feeling will go away soon.

I'll leave you with this image. It was taken at the Salvation Army store in Cullman, Alabama this past weekend. It is the most disturbing anti-drug poster I believe I've ever seen. If they had put these around my elementary school I think I'd be a wholly different person right now. Click for full size. Believe me it's worth it.

Your nephew is beautiful. And your anti-drug propaganda actually gave me shivvers.

1.Congrats on the new nephew.

2.Books. Yay!

3. I find when I feel blah for a few days, it's usually what I''m eating, coupled with lack of sunshine. Drink lots of water and fresh fruit. It really helps!

4. Maybe if I went creepy with my drug posters I would have won an award? Hind sight. Eh. :P

Oh, and next Thursday, right?

Ari- If the new baby is anything like his older brother then he'll be a total lady killer. My Kindle, on the other hand, probably won't be helping me land a woman.

Sarah- I know! He's adorable. I can't wait to see him this weekend. As for the poster I can say that it's even scarier in person.

Heather- I think I may just be in a rut or something but I feel like the weather changing is going to help that a lot. And we are totally on for next Thursday.

Congrats on the babies. I think I know exactly what you mean about not being all here lately. I tells ya, the internet is sucking all of our souls away.

Apollo said...

You're right, Colleen. You're also not helping because I spend a lot of my internet time on your damn websites.
