pretty sure it’s not the coffee that’s making him smile

Brendan noticed the other day that the song in the above Keurig commercial is the G. Love version of Gimme Some Lovin’ (a hidden track on Philadelphonic)

Makes one wonder what the high-five is really about. The coffee being made so quickly, or the moments before the coffee was made?


Bridget Rocks Out

Thanks to a couple of gifts, Bridget has been rocking out on the drums when she visits Grandma, and the guitar she got for her birthday from Keith and Shade’.

Looks like we may have some talent there. Or at least a future rock star. I’ll have to teach her how to throw TV’s out of windows.

ho ho ho!


We had a pretty Merry Christmas around these parts. Brendan and I are both a little bit sick, so we didn’t do the full Irish breakfast as we have done the past two years. We meant to this morning, but still haven’t done it. The bacon will have to be cooked soon. Perhaps tomorrow.


We spent Christmas Eve with my family and just hung out here yesterday (we’re still hanging out here today and for the forseeable future). It’s been pretty relaxing. 

All the photos are in the gallery, and Brendan even posted 10 minutes of Bridget opening presents on you tube. (It’s really not that exciting.)

We’re gearing up to do some household re-arranging (which I love) over the next few days, and 2/3 of the other Muskoxen are coming to visit for New Years. Excitement abounds! That’s just how we roll.


Brendan joined the party on January 2, 2004. He's cool now.

Jessica has never been cool. She is OK with that.

And just so everyone is clear, what we say here is not endorsed by either of our employers.
