post-baby haze


20160713_080658I actually MADE a CHX-139b tshirt! I love it. ūüėÄ ¬†Just a killer picture. ¬†I forgot how exhausting it is to have a new-born. ¬†I mean, i remember anecdotally how tired i was, but i think the actual memories were repressed in order to maintain my facade of sanity. ¬†IT ALL COMES SCREAMING BACK!

Why cant babies just sleep during the night? ¬†Our new baby is nocturnal, i’m sure of it.


accomplishment is all relative

2014-9-23Here are TEN¬†things i’ve found incredibly easy to accomplish:

1)  Apathy
2)  Failing academically
3) ¬†The McDonald’s Diet
4)  Being out of shape
5)  Giving up on anything
6)  Mediocrity in general
7)  Narcissism
8)  Being a poor sport
9)  Being grumpy
10)  Making this list.

If you set the bar low enough, every day is a success.


Sleep: nature’s caffeine



although… i suppose caffeine is nature’s caffeine.


have a good wednesday everyone! ūüėÄ

Teething can be dangerous

2014-6-2Josie is teething! ¬†she’s got one lil’ chomper tooth sticken’ out, which causes Josie all sorts of grief. ¬†I’m not gonna say it’s “first two months of Josie’s life” tiring, but there has been a definite breaking of the established routine, which affects Diana much more than it affects me, but that is making the both of us a little more lethargic than we have been. ¬†I suppose that broken routine is just the new routine for parents.

Anyway, i guess what this comic is saying is this: ¬†not even caffeine can help me any more! ¬†Caffeine keeps away the headaches, but does nothing to give me energy. ¬†-sigh- I guess i’ll have to find some super-caffeine! ¬†or, maybe just be more disciplined to go to sleep on time.



Coffee: my parental lifeboat


My house is an average of 100 times louder than it was before we had Josie. ¬†Coffee-dog is also much louder, as she is jealous of the attention Josie gets… and this is where the Coffee-drink comes in!

Here is my pro-tip (as if i’m a pro haha) to new parents, and parents to be! ¬†have earplugs and coffee (the drink) on hand! ¬†Earplugs to dull the noise, and coffee-drink to dull your headaches and keep you awake and alert! ¬†Besides tasting good, I like to think of coffee-drink as borrowing energy, which will be important, as you will have NONE. ¬†Some day, maybe nature will demand you repay all of the loans you’ve taken from the coffee-drink-energy-bank, but that day is not today! ¬†Volume over-exposure and energy depletion are a battle we fight today and count the cost of later. ¬†I am not good at writing math formulas, but if I were to speak it, i’d say it’s something like this:

The exponential decay of your energy level is directly proportional to the exponential increase of the volume level at your home.

Using this formula, you can set up parameters and determine how much coffee-drink it will take to bring your mind back to safety, should the volume/tired levels cross unacceptable thresholds! ¬†As your energy goes down and the volume goes up, more coffee is required to bring those levels back into standard operating parameters. ¬†Keep in mind, the amount of coffee required to get the levels back to normal is ALSO exponential, and because you will some-day have to pay back the coffee-drink-energy-bank, it is best to be in a constantly caffeinated state so that you don’t have to binge on coffee to catch up.


every… morning…


I have a 4 month old daughter! ¬†you would think that she would be what wakes us up, but no, it is my 1.5 year old dog that wakes me up early. ¬†Coffee-dog, it’s a good thing you’re cute. ¬†I’ve posted about this before… Just wanted to give you an update i guess! ¬†no progress whatsoever.
