I always know where to find Harold on a cold day. Just one question, is he combustible? Hopefully the space-heater police won't come break down our door.

Strip-mall narrative

So here we have a narrative of the essence of Oklahoma. The country western dance hall, tanning salon, OB/GYN office, and of course, health clinic.

What's in a name

So what's a toweltest you say? Years ago, my wife and I were watching something about dog training on TV, when the trainer explained a simple test you can use to check the intelligence of your dog. It was really simple, you take a small towel and drape it over the dog's head, and watch how long it takes the dog to remove the towel. The quicker the dog removes it, the more intelligent the dog is.

We looked at each other, then looked at our late dog Lexus, a 10 year old Sheppard-Chow mix, and thought what the hell. I grabbed a hand towel out of the bathroom and dropped it her head. How quick did she whip it off? Well, a good 60 seconds later I started feeling bad for her and pulled it off. I guess you could say she wasn't the sharpest, but we loved her anyway.

So that's what's in the name.

Weird things I know

Just a little list of weird things that have somehow made it into my brain.
  • If you twist the ground wire and the hot wire together on the fog-light switch in a 320i bimmer(probably most any other car too I imagine), it will cook the wiring harness down to the firewall and make lots of white smoke.
  • Dark-roast Vietnamese coffee has a "cleansing" effect.
  • If you're allergic to bananas and avocados, there's a good chance you're allergic to latex too.
Ok, so its a short list at this point, but its late, and it's all I can think of at the moment. More are sure to come.

Baseball and blossoms

Took a quick pic of my son before his first baseball game. If smiles and looks were equal to hits and runs, the other team better not even show up.
