Paczki Day!

Today is Paczki Day! So LP and I, along with Miles for the first time, made our annual trip to the Pasieka Bakery to buy some paczki for LP to take to work. This is the first year I did not get to take some to share since I don't have a job. This all means that Lent starts tomorrow.

Milk... did not see it.
Vicky Cristina Barcelona... did not see it.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button... did not see it, but almost did.
The Duchess... did not see it, but it's in my queue on Netflix.
Man on Wire... saw it and though it should of been a short.
WALL-E... saw it, and thought it was good, not great.
The Dark Knight... saw it!

Miles loves bouncing.

video

This marks the first video I have ever uploaded to Blogger... I guess there is a first for everything. Miles is now 16 weeks old and loves to jump in this jumpy-swing-thing. The tunes on the turntable in the background are by Breakestra. I highly recommend this album... it's great for parties, and for kids who love to bounce!

Chicago Photoshop.

When there is no time to post... then why not post a photo of Chicago taken from my phone and reworked in Photoshop.

60 In February.

The one plus about being unemployed is being able to take my son for a walk in the neighborhood on the first 60 degree day of the year. By the weekend it will be back in the 30's with some flurries. The sun did us both well today.

Confessions and Thoughts.

I am totally hooked on the television show "The Secret Life of the American Teenager." I know, I know - it is truly awful (is anything on ABC Family good?), but I just cannot stop watching. I was actually surprised that it was renewed for a second season. All of the high school kids have sex or want to have sex, yet none of them drink or do drugs because that would be bad. Yep.

I've been listening to way too much UB40 lately. And for most, ten seconds is far too much. I am a sucker for crap.

I think Pepsi ripped-off Obama's logo.

I am so tired of winter this year... and that's huge for me. I love the cold and snow but this January being the coldest in 25 years for Chicago - yeah, I've had enough. Global warming my ass.

I don't think Cherry Ride will ever post again. I think he's done with blogging.

I often hope for bad things to come to the company I use to work for. I know this is not right, especially since I have good friends who still work there and do not want to see them lose their jobs too... but I still find myself hoping the company will go out of business. Thankfully I usually realize right away what I am doing and stop myself because it is not healthy to wish bad things on other people. I need to use my brain for better things.

I do feel the February 3, 1959 was the day that the innocence of music died. Sure, the music did not die that day... but that clean cut All-American image seemed to die soon after.

Groundhog Day.

I love Groundhog Day... and yes, I even dig the movie.  Although I can't seem to find my copy of the movie.  Grrrrr... Hope Punxsutawney Phil does not see his shadow this morning.

Sleeper Bowl.

This year I skipped watching the Super Bowl... I took a long nap which I really needed.  It was very satisfying.  Although I did not eat any of the junk food (chips & dip) we bought to munch on during the game.  I think the Steelers won.  I got up in time to see the new episode of The Office.
