For fossils, that is.
Dad and I went off to West Virginia (as we are members of the Maryland Geological Society…NERD ALERT!) to go hunting for Trilobites.
The weather was great, and the pickings were good. Follow me!
For those of you guys that are wondering what the “MIOCENE” means on the license plate, Miocene is the geological epoch of the Neogene Period that extends from about 23 to 5 million years ago. And those people thought it was cool enough to have as their personalized plate.
. . .
Here I thought my “GWHANG” plates were hard core, but I was dead wrong.
To see another ridiculous license plate as well as more fossil hunting nerdiness, click HERE for photos of another trip that my Dad and I went to over a year ago.
Sorry for no comics this week, and for an overall lame month of blogging.
It’s been another 65+ hour week at my firm, and something tells me next week is going to be the same. I’ll maybe just not sleep one night to FINALLY get that photo comic out.
I’m gonna go and put massive amounts of anti-itch cream on my neck now. Those dang West Virginian mosquitoes ate me ALIVE!
Yay, an update!
It’s been an entire week since I’ve last updated, but it feels like it’s been longer for some reason.
I’ve been putting in quite a few hours at work, and had to spend most of yesterday in the office as well, so comics have been (unfortuanately) non-existant this week.
Sleep has been pretty hard to come by, too, which resulted in my transformation into a zombie at home.
To answer the question I *know* is burning in your minds…
Yes, I do actually own a pair of leopard print pajamas.
Too, too sexy, I know.
I have an actual photo comic in the works for this week! If I can get home at a decent hour, I will do my best to get it up before the weekend!
Love you all, and thanks for continuing to read this blog!
I got to go on a weekend outing with my grandparents.
During our ride up to our vacation, my grandfather let me know about something that he’s always wanted to do.
At the tender age of 80, my grandfather finally got to order his very first cocktail. He enjoyed it very much, although when it came time for him to order it, he couldn’t remember the “Sex” part and kept asking for an “On da Beech” over and over.
Fortunately, a woman nearby managed to figure out what he wanted and laughter ensued.

Today is the 10th Year Anniversary of 9/11. So many things can be said, but I think President Obama summed it up best through his quoting of the Bible during this morning’s NYC Memorial Service:
1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
7 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
8 Come and see what the LORD has done,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease
to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the shields with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
11 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
As an architect and as someone who has lived and worked in both DC and NYC, seeing the memorials being built and brought to completion has been a powerful experience.
We remember, and we pray for a better future.
After a hard workout, my sister and I love using the gym’s steam room.
The gym has a strict “Towel/Covering Required” rule…
…but some people take it as a suggestion instead.
One night, the gym was relatively empty, save a group of ahjummas (older Korean women) who were finishing up their time in the pool and showering. One of them decided to join Faith and me in the steam room.
My sister was horrified, but I felt otherwise. I’ve been lacking in funny things happening in my life, but this took the cake. I’ve never had such a gigantic pair of buttocks so close to my face in my life.
On a different note…
It seems like you guys (and my dad) tend to enjoy the more disgusting posts, especially after the amount of hits my blog got from that parasite-infested caterpillar.
Anyways, just for fun, I decided to pretend that I was one of those parasites and infest my dad-erpillar.
Pretty close, right?
