Defn: a human male displaying evidence of devolution - exhibits distinctive "caveman-like" tendencies. This man often dribbles in public places; cannot drink a beverage without spilling it on himself, the floor or someone else; may also run into objects like lampposts & bushes; has a definite "sloopish & short legged" running style that is slow and low to the ground, often resulting in the dragging of knuckles.

These throwback neanderthals, along with their questionable diet, should clearly be avoided.

Shiny Happy People

So, I was going to post the REM song "Shiny Happy People" off You-Tube here but upon watching it, wasn't really all that great.  But through the distracting magic of You-Tube other songs that came up included REM singing the same song w/ the Muppets, after watching that - I noticed the Muppet "Beaker" did the Coldplay song "Yellow".  Watched that - then saw this.

Way to use my time well. Muppets are timeless.

Back to the "Shiny Happy People" thing. I got home last night and noticed on our kitchen counter some time sheets. My wife had been overachieving again - she has a lot going on and in an effort to clean up the house, recruited help from the 3 kiddos. Hence the timesheets. Employee #3, Employee #4, Employee #5 each earned $10 yesterday - Five bucks an hour. The house really was shiny and clean.

A more clean and shiny house makes for a happier house, or at least a less stressed out, more happier Mommy (Employee #2).

So, when Employee #1 came home last night and asked where his time sheet was, in hopes that I could earn a few extra bucks, I was presented w/ my very own, very long, Honey-Do list.

Employee #1 will not be getting paid for completing the list.

Of course the question was posed - "how come they get paid and I don't?" Answer - Because Employee #2 is actually the Boss.

I should have known better.
