I Needed a Laugh

Michele and I were just looking back at the pictures from the day Porter was born.  I had forgotten about the pictures my mom took for me with my camera.  This was the best of the bunch.  Good for a little chuckle after a pretty rough ass day(today that is, not the rough ass day that Porter was born).

So everyone's all a twitter about IFC's new show Portlandia where Fred Armisen and his cronies make a laughingstock of the city I love.  Well, as a native son of the Rose city I am offended.  Nothing could be more shameful than the incredibly shortsighted and insulting portrayal of the city I love so much.  Naw, I'm just kidding, that shit's hilarious. I watched the first episode on Hulu a few days ago and laughed myself silly.

We packed up the car on Thursday and headed west to Port Angeles for a couple of days. Michele had her first interview for a real job on Friday so hotel was handled and meals covered, but that also meant fourteen hours worth of interview activities on Friday for Michele and just me to keep the boy occupied in unfamiliar territory. It was our first night away from home with the boy and I gotta say, it didn't go all that well.  He really didn't want to go to sleep.  I got him there a couple of times but the moment I'd set him down, he was wide awake again.  Eventually he ended up in the bed between Michele and I and neither of us got a whole lot of sleep because of it.  Of course, the lack of sleep was less than ideal when we were needing Michele to be at her Ben Murphiest the next morning.

Anyway, long story short, they love Michele and offered her the job.  The money is good, benefits are great, and loan repayment may very well be in the cards.  Strong showing for PA but there's still some more interviewing to come. We should be making some sort of a life changing decision in the next couple of months, so watch out for that.

Bath Toys

Mom blew into town like a whirlwind with my niece and grandmother in tow and rolled back out a mere eighteen hours later.  Of course, she made the time for Archie McPhee and left these bad ass bath toys behind.  Someday the boy will be ready for them, but until that day, they're mine!
