Lara made some supernice manicotti a coupla days ago.  Leftover Italian goodies?  Da Bomb!  The kids have been good and helping me with the spring cleaning.  Huh, spring.  Sunshine and hail today.  Overnight in the low or sub 30’s.  It is April right?  My back sure hates weather like this.

ONE more episode of Fringe season 2 to go.  It’s weird but cool I hope it doesn’t fall off season 3 as bad as I’ve heard.  Next up I’m gonna sample Rome (HBO) and see if it’s worth persuing.  Took some Vidz of my kiddos playing Samurai Shodown 2 tonight, I’ll see what it’ll take to post it up here or Farcebook.  I’s a proud poppa!

Anyone who may be down with a First playthrough on Borderlands (360) level 25ish then I’ll be on with a friend Friday late and Saturday late too it looks like.  I’m gonna be playing a soldier and John’s a hunter.  If you need my GamerTag drop me a note!  Always good to catch up with bros while busting caps (Virtual Style).

There are a coupla sites I think are very interesting if you like video games and movies:

www.hardcoregaming101.net  for some in depth and unique views on games.

www.outlawvern.com for one of the best film writers alive today (or yesterday and most likely tomorrow)!

Not much else tonight just throwing content against this here wallpaper.  ‘Til next time folks!

Good times, good times.  Munkynutz came a callin’ on Wednesday which also happens to be Viktors birthday and spent an evening with us.  Quite the treat for us as we haven’t seen him in person for 6 years.  He brought the birthday boy a Sheriff Woody pull string doll and a noisy book.  Damn was he disappointed when he found out that noisy toys don’t phase me anymore!  Viktor also scored a Razor Scooter (and brainbucket) along with a shootin’ hoops game and fluff from my dad!

The kids had a blast.  Jess should be coming back next weekend to hang for the whole weekend with us.  That is gonna be hella good!  Also I got beaten at Street Fighter 4 by Mr. Nutz.  He beat me 4 times and is bragging it up over at the facebook.  What he neglects to mention is that i whupped him the other 12 times.  Sins of omission.  I guess that’s better than nocturnal emiss…  er, nevermind.

Rewatched ‘The People Under the Stairs’ since my last post (my recommendation is don’t bother) and I just watched ‘The Hitcher’ today and I do recommend watching that again!  Jennifer Jason Leigh was/is so hot.  It also stars Rutger Hauer before he became a running joke and even a hell of a performance by C. Thomas Howell.  Probly his best IMHO.  Or at least better than ‘Soul Man’.

At least LOST wasn’t a rerun this week and some serious things went down on/around the island.  I don’t wanna spoil it if you haven’t seen it, but if you haven’t then you MUST!  Also devoured Seasons 1,2 and 3 of Arrested Development (FOX TV) within the last 2 weeks.  It was sublime and should NOT be missed.  It truly does have something for everyone.  ‘cept stupid people.  Even then they prolly wouldn’t notice.  Now I’m back to watching FRINGE.  Boy that is some good TV too!

Long night, short post so I’ll just leave this with you…

Yin Yang Much?

Bless you Bless you INDEED!

Where to start?

As I had mentioned previously here, there are number of super cool things on the immediate horizon for us as a family.

But previously… in my life.  Alora and Lara went to the Pt. Defiance Zoo with Alora’s class last week.  Pretty sure it’s the first field trip or class activity that Lara has participated in this year ( I got to do the GingerBread house project and the car wash as well ) the whole class had a blast and they came home super hype.  Alora spent her time running away from the sharks and feeding the goats.  Also tonight LOST is a rerun.  How the hell does that work?  Making up for it by watching me some Season 1 Fringe while I type this.  Getting good!

New in this episode at the Casa del Putnam!  MunkyNutz is coming to town!  Whoo0!  Haven’t seen my man Jess in person for around six years but he coming to the Great Northwest on work and is gonna spend a weekend with the fam and myself in May.  SuperHype Yeah Boi!  Here’s the kinda guy MN is…  he found out that Super Street Fighter 4 dropped today and he went to pick up a copy just so he could get spanked by yours truly.  Also I grokked that he was starting out in BorderLands tonight and I can’t wait to coop some of THAT with my man Nutz.  Well not like that you know!

Also in the immediate future, my mom is coming to visit us for a week or so at the end of June (right after school lets out).  She’ll be meeting her grandchildren in person for the first time and my wife too, come to think of it.  Lara’s already planning State Park days and a trip to the Pacific Ocean.  I’m sure there will be plenty to do.

The van is working out splendidly so far and isn’t too terrible on MPG (miles per gallon) so I’m happy so far.  Put my OLD ASS XPLOD stereo in it.  Gots me some tunes.

Also concerning musics.  I’m going to the ‘RockStar Metal Mayhem Festival’ at White River Ampitheater with a fella named Steve who is a Midwest transplant (such as myself).  He’s the nephew of an architect I know who was raised in Michigan and frequents TSRL (where I work).  Actually Corey (Steve’s uncle) helped design the Grand Traverse Mall!  Anyhow… KORN, Rob Zombie, Lamb of God and other metal goodies await my attendance!  Sweet!

Enough rambling for now just wanted put something out there…  Gamertag – UtraViolent N8 …  Super Street Fighter 4 ya’ll!

Also

Schindler's Lift

Happy Friday Night!

BBQ fell through and I had to crisp up those tasty chicken and pigs myself.  Mesquite and flamage equal tasty dinners for the family!

Lots of cool stuff the last 2 weeks so I’ll just start with last weeks carwash that Alora and her classmates held to raise funds for a trip to the Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma.  I stopped by and paid $15 to get 3/5ths of my van washed (kind of) as well as joining in to wash cars for about an hour.  Oh yeah and get pictures, here are a few:

Alora earns a trip to the zoo

Along with her classmates!

Sorry I don’t have any pictures of ME washing cars because noone else had brought any cameras.  The pictures I use for this blog are taken with my cell camera but I think they work to get the moment across and I also don’t have to worry wrecking a more expensive digital camera.

Also Peggy M. has gotten me hooked on:

Is this the NEW X-Files? We'll see...

I’m still in season One but it gives me something to watch between episodes of LOST this season.  MunkyNutz keeps going on about Leverage so maybe afterward I’ll check it out.  Super Street Fighter 4 comes out Tuesday that’ll be fun!

Later Gator.
