Goofy And Eleanor beware, You're ... Posted by Sideshow in Personal Entry at 15:37
Today, I hit my 50 lbs lost mark.
I'm slightly over halfway to my ultimate goal, but that also means that Goofy And Eleanor are officially on notice that they are not long for this world, for I will be rid of them.

RB&P, Ringing In The New Year, ... Posted by Sideshow in Personal Entry at 09:26
A Couple of Notes. There will be a new RB&P soon. It will be a bit of a recap, why BYU's schedule really did suck, a Bowl Preview, and a bit of a season recap. However due to the purchase of a new home, I haven't been able to do it the last couple weeks.
Speaking of the new house, Sabrina and I were wondering what the general feeling was about a party to ring in the New Year on December 31st at the new place? What say ye?
Also I'm relatively sure that everyone has seen it by now, but just in case, the countdown to the return to the Shire has begun with an official trailer.

Thank you Aerosmith for providing me a best hits album (Oh Yeah). It combines all of the really awesome stuff of Aerosmith in to 2 very portable CD's. I have listened to mine many many times and thoroughly enjoyed it. You have saved me from not having to listen to some of your less popular songs. And I appreciate that, because it means I can just focus on the great stuff.
On a secondary note...
Thank you Metallica for NOT providing me with a best hits album. Your tireless efforts to constantly rock out have not gone unnoticed on me. Thank you for not simply repackaging all of your awesome songs in an effort to just make a bit more money. Your last album (Death Magnetic) was spectacular. Thank you for always rocking!
I am clearly a very conflicted soul.

So I am posting this! Joey please do not consider this a personal threat of any kind. I will never order my dog to attack you. The attack doll I keep in my basement with your face taped to the front is just a tragic, tragic coincidence.

Sabrina Has One. Will take until November-ish to recover.

Lookie What My Wife Did Posted by Ancient of Days in Personal Entry at 17:06
Not long after we first started dating, I began to work on my wife to get her to start reading Fantasy and S/F - she hadn't been much of a fan until then. However, I didn't get a whole lot of traction until they started working on the movies for "The Lord of the Rings", when she finally read "The Hobbit" and LotR. This is all just a preface to say - check out her interpretation of Smaug! Continue reading "Lookie What My Wife Did"

Let's Talk Start-Ups Posted by The Mad Giggler in Personal Entry at 09:30
I recently had a conversation with Radar about Mr. Ancient of Days and thought it resulted in an interesting idea.
So here's your chance to give feedback (as objectively as possible) on what you liked about I-N-S. Also if you have something you didn't like but have a possible solution for preventing or fixing that, I am interested in hearing that. My one concern is that this not turn into an attack post on You-Know-Who. Continue reading "Let's Talk Start-Ups"

Do you have a death wish? Are you trying to die? Is that really the most efficient way to kill yourself? Because I can think of several less painful and immediate options. Running across an unlit road in dark clothing is a sure fire way to get killed, but man is that going to hurt.
Exactly how stupid are you? I have always been a fan of the Darwin Awards, but perhaps you wanted to take it to the next level. I am fine with that. I welcome the chance to have your stupidity genes removed from the population so that you can't pass them on. But don't use me to do it. Exactly how lazy are you anyway that you would choose to make someone else do your dirty work? Looter.
I hope you had the crap scared out of you, because it took nearly a day for me to just unclench.
The guy who nearly killed you
PS. Merry Christmas you idiot

Last spring after some discussion, Daboo gave our old labrador-mix mutt (some of you knew and hated Ford) back to her mom and we adopted a German Shepherd puppy. We named him Brashen (after the character in the Liveship Traders by Robin Hobb) and we call him Brash.
I'd always loved German Shepherds and admired their intelligence and versatility. When I was a kid, I learned that they've been trained as guide dogs for the blind; since then, I've learned they are also used to sniff out narcotics, apprehend individuals in cooperation with law enforcement officials, and of course for sheep herding. They are also my favorite looking dog. I have posted some images of him as a puppy here on Winged Wolves.
Daboo was willing to get a German Shepherd on the condition that she be able to train him to do something useful. She did some poking around and found a club here in Utah that does Schutzhund training (Wasatch Hundesport). She joined the club and quite enjoys spending her Saturdays out doing tracking, obedience, and bite work. Continue reading "Brashen"

All of us who write on this blog are familiar with the Harry Potter series. While not all love it, I do want to briefly paraphrase something from it. Dumbledore said at one time that aid will always be given to Hogwarts when it is most needed or called for (or something along those lines). I would like to reiterate to all of you that I, like Dumbledore, will always give whatever aid I can to those of my friends who need it. All you have to do is ask.

I just read The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance: A Memoir and it is hilarious and a little sad. I was really worried it would bash Mormons too much but it was too honest for that. No hate here, no prejudice, just honest reality. I liked it a lot. As someone who has actually thought about my faith and grappled with its major questions and problems, but have still chosen to be Mormon, I can really relate to her. But at one point of the book a guy the author dated asks her about cloning. It really throws her and she doesn't have a good answer, except that it's not possible to clone a real thinking person. I can see why she thought this but she is wrong. I wrote a response to her: what I would like to tell her in person. It is below the fold. Continue reading "Cloning and Mormonism"

Just letting everyone know that the girls went back to their birth mother yesterday at 8:00 am. It's kind of sad knowing that we'll never see them again, but I think that we gave them a good experience and I do think their BM deserved to get them back and I'm glad I helped out with that. We'll be taking a year off foster care so the boys have some much-needed stability. Overall it was a great experience for all of us and I'm glad we did it, but I am pretty exhausted and looking forward to a bit of a slower pace.

News From the Elbow Family Posted by Johnny Elbows in Personal Entry at 13:52
We've had a new arrival at our house. Her name is Madeleine, but we usually call her Madi (or Squeak, since she squeaks rather than crying most of the time). There's a picture of her below the fold.
