This isn't the way I planned it

Well, today's post is going to be lame. My amazing picture won't show up on the page. Or rather, it won't show up how it should. I got this email from a friend with a picture that shows a sequence of events for a ghetto transformer. It starts off with a box outside a warehouse and slowly it changes into a guy holding a fake laser. Huh. Reading about it makes it seem not quite as cool. I guess you have to be there.

So I'm sorry, but there is no picture for Picture Tuesday. There's always next week.

You're how old???

First of all, today is the twenty-first birthday of my favorite brother-in-law. A big congrats to him on making it this far. To celebrate, Jamie and I are not hanging out with him. Actually we were really hoping to, but tonight Jamie starts her first day of art classes at Phoenix College. Big changes for everyone. Except me.

My life continues to be boring. So today's blog is understandably short. Tomorrow I should have an amazing Picture Tuesday, but I don't know if everything is going to work out. If tomorrow is lame, you know my plans fell through. If it rocks your world, then you have just made my life a little more exciting.

Chocolatey goodness and the return of blogging

I have been debating whether to return to blogging after my brief hiatus. My wife and I attempted a joint venture which sputtered out after a couple of weeks. Since then, I have missed writing and today I have found some time to kill. The pieces just came together.

Today, I want to discuss a little something called irony. I have been telling my friends for years that eating chocolate is the best way to keep healthy. A new study has just come out validating my claims further. This article from Foxnews.com discusses how chocolate can actually help prevent cavities. Amazing. Every time I go into the dentist, they always comment on what nice teeth I have. I blame it on chocolate. I eat it excessively. And it has done me a world of good.

So, I think it's about time that chocolate got the recognition it deserves. I'm all for starting a movement that makes it an official food group. Three servings a day, I'm thinking. I'm going to be a good pediatrician. The kids will love me, I'll tell them to eat lots of chocolate. Their parents can't argue with me. I'm a doctor.

Anyway, now that I'm back, I suppose you should expect the usual. Infrequent posting, promises that I don't intend to keep and plenty of apologizing for both. It's going to be a bumpy ride, but tons of fun as usual.
