Holy Huge TV, Batman

So Frik and I decided to get a new TV so we can hook our mac mini up to it. Well, being the little researcher that he is, he went online and picked THE perfect TV and looked for the best deal and finally decided to get this 50" TV from costco... Well I came downstairs after putting the baby to sleep to see


a box that is at least 6 feet tall standing in our living room and this monster of a TV that came out of it leaning up against our current entertainment center (it is too big to fit in our entertainment center, by the way...) Humongous. We'll have to see how it looks once we have our old TV out and everything all hooked up.

Is that a challenge!??!

Yes, it is. For those of you who enjoyed my short lived "couch to 5k" idea, here's a new challenge that I'm taking up with frik: One Hundred Pushups Now, in my defense, the c25k thing was hard because I couldn't really leave the house and frik couldn't go with me so we had weird scheduling problems... not to mention my friend that BAILED on me... I have started that up again; I'm in week 1.

So, who's in on the 100 pushups? Frik is totally doing it and I was surprised that I could actually do I think 12 pushups. I thought I was WAY weaker than that (not that 12 is a lot. Do I even want to know how many Berserk can do?)

In other news, I started watching Fringe. It's pretty good. Kind of creepy but interesting. Really, it wasn't what I was expecting from JJ Abrams, but I have been enjoying it. We'll see how it goes. Also saw the first couple episodes of the new season of House, which I love.

I made some salsa the other day. Last time I made salsa, I used a habanero and i deseeded the whole thing and it was so not spicy that I ended up using a couple serranos too to try to bring up the spice. It still was pretty weak (and I don't really care for hot salsa, I'm more for the flavor, which is why I love habaneros and pretty much hate jalapenos). So this time, I bought 2 habaneros and did not deseed them at all... well that was a mistake.

Wudan can attest to the spiciness and he didn't even try it until after I added an extra 3 tomatoes, a can of diced tomatoes, and a can of tomato sauce to try to mild it out. We all thought berserk would like it though. It had a great flavor, but the burning on my tongue was pretty bad. Next time: 2 habaneros, deseeded, and we'll go from there.

That's right. 2. on the bottom. She got one a few days ago and then I felt the other one today. She's been really good. She's drooling a lot more than usual, and right before the first one and for a day or so after, she was in a lot of pain, but now she's doing fine. We'll see if any more pop through. They're such cute little teeth! too bad I can't see them because she's always got her tongue out. Ever since the teeth grew in, she's been stickign her tongue out. I think she likes how the teeth feel on her tongue: 


She was crawling around and chasing and laughing at duke today, so he got a little excited and started acting like he was going to play with her. He ran and got his ball and started jumping up and down. I told him no since he was getting a little too rowdy, and he dropped his ball and looked down at the ground like he was so humiliated that he had gotten out of control. Then she put her head up against his neck and cuddled with him and he started licking her ears like he only does to people he really loves. It was so sweet. She loves her doggy!

Drill Baby Drill… er wait..

I don't have much to say about this, but I found it interesting. Kinda makes you wonder how collectively stupid we are as a country when roughly 50% of us think that this really is the solution to our energy problems.

Hide and Seek Squirt

We were having fun the other day putting Squirt in strange places and taking pictures of her:




In other news, she also has a new favorite video. Some of you know that she LOVES iloveegg. Well, this JG Wentworth commercial came on the other day and Squirt was captivated:

Now, if she's fussy, and I play it for her, she calms down right away and actually gets mad when it stops:

Silly baby!

Watch out, David...

I was going through some old papers and found this:

Apparently your girlfriend is a card carrying member of the "I do not care about my future posterity" club. You better look out for any future kids you might have.
