It was like seeing you for the first time…

"There is one pain I often feel, which you will never know. It is caused by the absence of you." I have been searching for the author of this quote. I have found several attached to it but in the end it all means the same. It's something I often feel. I had the wind knocked out of me earlier today. I was not struck physically but the result was the same, the loss of air. I saw you today. And...I have seen you in passing but it was nothing like today. I had just left from a friends house and decided Read more [...]

I now pronounce you…

It been 8 years since my wife and I got married. Today we celebrate our anniversary and our marriage has been great. We've hit our rough patches and at times we thought we should take a break but we continued to fight for each other and we're together. We laugh together, argue together, and most importantly we are dorks together. I think that's what keeps us going. No matter how mad we might get about something we are always able to laugh about it. On top of that we are straight up dorks like I previously Read more [...]

Oh how fast it goes…

It's only been about 11 days since my daughter was born. Although it's been a short time I can already see the changes in her. She seems to have grown a bit and she's making all kinds of funny faces. She's a complete snuggle bug and I love it! My older children were the same way but it feels special because she's daddy's girl. Every day has been fun and she's starting to get used to sleeping by herself and chilling by herself while she's awake. Her eyes have not changed completely but if they happen Read more [...]

One of life’s greatest moments…Birth.

It's 9:58pm on August 30th 2011. So much has happened since yesterday and my life has changed once again. Out of all the greatest moments I have experienced there is one that tops all of them; the birth of my children. The most recent addition to my family is Lola Mae. My little girl has finally arrived and this time yesterday my wife was in labor. Rebecca had been having contractions for most of the day yesterday but nothing significant or close together. We ran some errands and went to the airport Read more [...]

The Green Aisle

This morning I was on a run for coffee and doughnuts and I heard something interesting on my favorite morning radio show. What I heard was unbelievable and I thought I should write something about it and see what your thoughts are on it. Do you remember Percy from The Green Mile? If not he was the pissy, shitty little man who smashes the mouse and tells the guy that there is no mouse heaven. In the end he ends up murdering the pedophile and goes insane. A perfect ending for such a jerk of a character. Read more [...]

Babies come out of where?

As my boy gets older he seems to have a lot more questions for his mom and I. He understands almost all of our answers and explanations and is too smart for his own good. His sense of humor mirrors mine and he cracks me up with some of the stuff he says. His curiosity runs wild and his questions throw me off every now and then. He's seven and speaks and thinks older than he is. It's funny how kids grow so fast and how their thought process works, especially if they are under the impression of something Read more [...]

Soundtrack to my life: Episode III

The other day I heard a song on the radio and I flashed back to one of the worst days of my life. The song is a very good one and is by one of my favorite bands, Pink Floyd. Their song "Wish You Were Here" not only reminds me of that day but I listened to it a lot afterward and it helped to comfort me in a way. Even now I am listening to it as I type this. My entire blog has been meant to be humorous and tell stories of my life and the world so in no way am I trying to be a downer by typing this Read more [...]

Soundtrack to my life: Episode I

"The entertainment for this evening is not new, you've seen this entertainment through and through you have seen your birth, your life, your death....you may recall all the rest. Did you have a good world when you died - enough to base a movie on?" — Jim Morrison (An American Prayer) I am 30 years old and I can safely say that I have lived a crazy enough life so far to base a movie on. From what you have read on Jabber Log you might agree that some of the stories would be great to see on film. Read more [...]

The best of you

In honor of Father's Day I would like to take this time to talk about my father who is pictured on the left. Yes, on the left, the one with the bright white "Don King" hair. Although we've had our share of quarrels I thank you for everything you have done for me. You were very strict and hard on me but I thank you because I was able to develop a work ethic like no other. My sense of music is mostly because of you. Every trip we took to Texas when I was growing up I remember everyone crashed out late Read more [...]

Rollercoaster of Urban Legend

While typing the post on Teddy Ruxpin and the Christmas Carol I remembered another urban legend. The following story has got to be on my top three list of legends. The picture for this post is an album cover from the Ohio Players. The only thing I can recall from them is Love Rollercoaster. It's catchy, it remains locked in your brain and the Red Hot Chili Peppers did a cover of it. What creeps me out in the original is that during a section of song there is something odd in the background. It sounds Read more [...]
