Let’s Dig for Treasure

On the way home from Thanksgiving Kaela spotted an abandoned property along WI 151. We decided to pull in to the cemetary adjacent to the abandoned farm and take a look around.

Random Thoughts

I am jonesing for a Nintendo Wii at the moment, but they are all sold out. It appears that whoever has been living in my room has been doing so in abject squalor for quite some time. There are two major projects I have to have done in the next 48 hours. The first is a presentation on German concentration camps and the other is an oral interpretation of Goethe’s classic Faust.

Dethklok is by far my favorite show in that programming block. Now the Overture from Katamari Damacy is playing in iTunes. I’m getting hungry and there is a caramel Drumstick waiting for me. I spent way too much at Joe’s Sample House this weekend. God, I really want a Nintendo Wii…

Add in- to the word “competent” and you have incompetent, which carries a negative connotation.
