I have a niece that's about 2 and a half months old. Yesterday she was crying. To help her not cry, I decided to read something to her. The closest thing I could find was a Thousand Island visitors guide. So I read that.

I read an ad about boat tours with a really animated voice. She stopped crying and looked like she was listening to everything I said. Then I read an article about history of something - she cried. I think she was bored. Then I read an ad about a casino. She was mesmerized again. Then when I stopped she cried. Scuba diving ads? Mesmerized... and on it went. She liked it. It was funny.

I went to pick up my bike today from the repair place. It wasn't ready. We walked around for a few hours and went back. They don't have a part. Then the guy said he'll do the overhaul we ordered but just charge us for a tune-up (about $40 instead of $100 - the overhaul is a major tune up where they basically clean and repack just about every piece that moves). Cool!

Also got film developed. I had no idea what was on it since it had been so long (just found a disposable camera and a film from a few years ago). The camera had a bunch of pictures of all kinds of things. You don't care. And the film didn't work. The girl said she was able to get 5 pictures or so from it. They were fuzzy, grainy, and you pretty well couldn't see anything. They didn't charge for it. I'm always impressed when they do that since they do the work, it's your fault for bringing in an old film, but they don't charge. That was nice. And the disposable camera had prepaid processing (we paid $2 for one-hour processing) so everything cost us $2.

And Sara found a nickel, then later a penny (which we both thought was a dime) on the floor. So she came back 6 cents richer. Not a bad day. Maybe I shoulda bought a lottery ticket.

Sara and I made this...

I've been using Twitter a lot lately. Like most people seem to be saying, I still don't understand it, I still don't really get the point, but I can't stop posting haha.

I was thinking today... you know the expression "easy as pie"? What is easy about pie? It's tough to make, man. It takes hours. And tons of steps, cutting fruit, making the dough, rolling out the dough. Even buying canned fruit and a ready-made crust can take time.

That's it. Carry on.

blog readability test

That's what I sorta figured...

There are few more depressing things than sitting on a casino shuttle, full of hard core gamblers, listening to country music on the radio.

But on a happier note, my grandma won like $250 at slots - a nice 97th birthday gift. And some woman who won $2000 gave my grandmother $20 when she heard it was her birthday. It was a really nice thing to do.

I think I saw Superman again.

Today, I saw a guy park his car, then get out of his car and then start running. But this wasn't just a regular dude. He ran like a superhero. Fast too. And his tie was flapping in the wind behind him which made it look like a little cape. Or maybe it was just part of his actual cape. Either way, he was maybe going to save someone. In case you're wondering, Superman drives a blue car. I think it was a Mazda.
