Scrambled Brains

Been feeling just a little disconnected today. I'm sure it has something to do with my sleeping like crapola last night and remembering a bit too much. I hate being up and down all night. I finally got out of bed around eleven after tossing and turning all night and hit the website. I tore into it as a distraction and it worked pretty well. I actually got some stuff accomplished. The new poker pages are up under the gaming links now, the photos uploaded, I tweaked out my blog page a little, added some photos to a few albums and started taking notes on a few minor changes I want to make here and there. Probably nothing most of ya'll will notice but I'm anal retentive that way.

I am happy with the new poker pages though. The first game in Lana's office went really well I thought other than a minor incident that I'll fix later. I was rushing around most of Friday and lost track of time. I didn't make it far in either game but I think I'm getting my game back slowly. The poker roll is on life support but it is just a game after all and I'm among good company.

I was supposed to work out today but I think I'm going to just pass. Micah couldn't make it today and gave me a good excuse to skip today. I gotta admit I was a bit relieved when he called to cancel our weightlifting workout. I just don't feel up to it. I've got a bit of a headache and I can feel a bad mood just waiting. As if I needed another excuse, I'm pretty damn dirty and tired already. We went out the stables for an evening ride on Lana's rental horse, Bank. I couldn't believe how relaxed and quiet it was when we first got there. With all the lights down, no one in the arena or in the round pin and not a soul in site, it was wonderful. By the time we saddled him up a few of our friends showed with the same idea in mind of an evening ride but there was still a quiet peace even with a few folks riding around talking to there horses. Marcel's doing pretty good with his lessons and was in such a good mood today. I ended up riding with him and couldn't help but think about how big he's gotten especially after having Marian over for a couple days. Marian brought back something I had totally forgotten about. We were sitting outside on the patio just talking while she and Marcel played. She ran up to Lana with a big smile, and lifted her shirt up and waited. I love the sound of a baby's belly laugh. It's such an honest, unrehearsed, straight from the heart and belly sound. Marcel used to do the same thing when he wanted his belly tickled. Shirt not skirt, that would be just wrong and weird.

I should probably hop off here. I feel like I've been staring at the computer all day. I guess I'll shower and read tonight. I hate feeling exhausted but not sleepy. Arg.

Daddy Day

We were initially going to head out to the neighborhood river beach but we decided sleeping in was more important. It didn't help we stayed up pretty late watching Twenty Four the second season with Micah and Kelly. By the time five o'clock rolled around I was still wanting to watch one more episode despite the fact I was struggling to keep my eyes open and it was getting light outside. It's such an addictive show. I had to swear to Kelly I wouldn't watch any episodes without her.

So we got a late start on Father's day to say the least but I think I like it that way. I had a chance to lazy around the house, work on the poker tables, play with Marcel, and get ready for company. We ended up playing a damn good game of poker. It was such a laid back game, everyone was joking around, a lot of shit talking, all in good fun and no drama to deal with. I should make that a rule I think. Leave your drama at the door. Anyway, it was a really relaxed day and I was glad to spend it with my friends.

One of the two poker tables I'm making is nearly done now. I'm just waiting on cup holders to come in at the local marine store now. I'm pretty eager about moving the regular Friday game up to Lana's office. I figure I'll add a new page to the site dedicated to the poker game under gaming stuff. Micah's come up with some pretty good ideas on some tournaments we should try sometime. It'll be interesting to watch the traffic on my site with the poker page added.

Speaking of website traffic.. I keep a pretty good eye on my traffic. I check my average hits per month (around 100,000!), peak hours, what pages are being viewed the longest, etc. The host I use allows me to access a very detailed report on my traffic one of the things I like to check out are the phrases that my site comes up on. Most of them are usually stuff about fish tanks, playing magic, costumes but some of the phrases... I really don't know what to say. I don't know who you guys are searching with these phrases but I was a little more than shocked to see my site come up on them. Just to share a few, I've made a list of my top fifteen phrase offenders. I thought about putting these in some order of least offensive to most offensive but I really couldn't. Read on and you'll understand:

  • husband training - not the kind of DIY project I would post. Sorry.
  • nerd costumes - I'm not a nerd. Geek maybe, but not a nerd.
  • geeks and nerd costumes - I can see how my site might come up on this one being a borderline geek and all.
  • i m addicted to dogs - I have no idea. I don't even want to know what they were looking for.
  • training a house husband - Were they looking for a pdf manual or something??? beeea-yaatch!!
  • humiliated husbands - I laughed uncomfortably at this one and I'm still unsure what it is exactly...
  • signs your husband may be addicted to porn - hmmmm. If he rides you like a cheap pony afterwards it should all be good right?
  • how to masturbate with stuff around the house - Man, I about fell out my chair laughing at this one. There's a pdf I'd like to put on the download page!
  • ass muncher - I don't want to know.
  • butt punched husband - maybe this came from the person doing the humiliated husbands search?
  • pictures of husband training - a pictorial guide for your coffee table maybe?
  • cut my cock off - no, please don't.
  • let masturbate together - let's not, really.
  • grandma watching me masturbate - why did I come up on this phrase???? I never even blogged about that!! Gawd, just joking about that makes me a nauseous.
  • get wasted and masturbate - I've never done that to the best of my recollection.

If only IP's were included on these search reports... there are some trully disturbed fuckers out there visiting my site. Thanks for the traffic and come again! ;)

Oh, happy belated Father's Day to all you trained, humiliated, butt-punched, geeky hubbies out there!

The truck is officially dead. We had it towed to Micah and Kelly's place for now until we figure out what we're going to do with it. It was going to cost us thirty five hundred for a new engine so Lana decided we'd just get a new car. I wasn't really all that enthused about it but I guess we can afford it. Everyone keeps telling me that it's an investment well worthwhile but I keep thinking about that big car note for the next four years and the extra insurance. Arg. It's a nice car though so I can't complain too much I guess.

I hadn't worked on the bus much lately mostly because I don't have room in the garage right now with all the poker tables in mid-construction. With the truck dead we've been on a holding pattern waiting for Lana's check to come in so I couldn't finish the tables. I had planned on working on the tables yesterday but my plans went belly up when I was hit by a nasty headache. I dosed myself up with ibuprofen but that just took the sharp pain out of my head and put it in my eyes. I could barely keep my eyes open so I did the only thing I could; I slept.

Not a lot going on these days other than a little poker here and there and even some roleplaying. I tried rallying the troops for San Con this year but it ended up being just Derek and me this year. It's probably for the best as this wasn't the greatest of cons. I was disappointed to say the least. I won't be going next year. I'll eventually get around to writing up my review for it as well as Owlcon. I need to just take my site page by page and start updating. Like many things, if I just maintained it, it wouldn't be the big project it is now. I've been in bit of a blahhhh mood lately. I need to get moving I guess. It's going to be a busy week. I have the midnight premiere for Batman tomorrow, poker tables to work on, and a weekend of paintball. Hopefully after a workout and some poker table construction I won't feel so damn out of phase. I need something to pull me out of this shit mood lately. Anyway. I'll return you to your regularly scheduled browsing.
