QotD: Entertaining

Question: How often do you "entertain" at your abode? My Answer: Never. Tomorrow doesn't count. I always make fun of people on TLC and HGTV when they're looking for homes. They all say they want to "entertain." I don't really know anyone that "entertains." Who are these people? Where do they live? Why aren't we […]

QotD: Tiger’s Pay

Question: Tiger Woods just surpassed $50M in career earnings (in nearly 10 years on the PGA Tour). Is he underpaid? My Answer: He makes more off the course in sponsorships and whatnot than any other athlete anywhere, so if we're including that money, no, he's not underpaid. If we're comparing him to every other professional […]

QotD: Floppy

Question: When is the last time you used a floppy disk? My Answer: 1995. Yes, it's been 10 years. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Jobby

Question: If you could turn any of your hobbies into an actual job (one that sustains you and your family), which hobby would you choose and what would you do with it? My Answer: I've already done it. Twice. 🙂 Software development and Web consulting with a dash of Mac and golf thrown in to […]


Question: What's your favorite TLA? My Answer: WTF? You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Mac Memorabilia

Question: What's your favorite piece of Mac memorabilia? My Answer: It's more Apple memorabilia, but I dig my eMate 300. Still works. If I'm restricting the answer strictly to Mac memorabilia, then I'm going to have to go with my case cracker for the original Mac. Not a ton of those still around. You are […]

QotD: Tablet Mac

Question: Do you still want to see a tablet Mac? Why or why not? My Answer: I'd pay $1500 right now for a 17" tablet Mac. It should offer a 17" display (though I'd take 15" if the resolution was good). It should have USB ports for those who want to use a keyboard/mouse, but […]

QotD: Age Limits

Question: Should there be an age limit to play professional sports? My Answer: I think that an age limit of 18 - the age at which you can be legally bound to a contract - is all that's needed, and I'd also like to see exceptions made on a case-by-case basis. Morgan Pressel finished tied […]

QotD: Energy

Question: If I gave you $1,000,000,000 to invest in "energy research" and told you that for that sum of money you had to come up with a valid alternative to fossil fuels, how would you spend the money? My Answer: I'd spend it all on myself and then tell people to drive less. Just kidding… […]

QotD: Bush So Far

Question: How has President Bush performed in his second term relative to your expectations of him? In other words, I don't want to hear anything about John Kerry - only about how Bush has performed relative to how you thought he would once you knew he had been re-elected. My Answer: He's performed about as […]

QotD: Kids

Question: How many kids do you want? My Answer: I'm plenty happy with the 1½ that I have now. Flint can be left alone for a few hours at a time, thus accounting for the ½, and I can't imagine a better kid than Little One. Though she's not my own, I'm married to her […]

QotD: Independence Day

Question: How do you celebrate your Independence Day? My Answer: Carey and I are having both families over for a cookout (hamburger, hot dog). Calling it a dry run for our reception/housewarming/party would be overdoing it, as it's much smaller, but it sure beats just hanging around and doing nothing, which is what I normally […]

QotD: Magic

Question: Do you believe in magic? My Answer: Not really. I believe that magic in the traditional sense - card tricks and bunnies from hats - is all just illusion, and that's fine. It's still entertainment. Magic in the mystical sense - casting spells and voodoo and enchanted forests - are also great entertainment, but […]

QotD: Home Improvement

Question: What's the largest home improvement project you've ever undergone? My Answer: I installed a shower door. Was pretty easy, though I needed to buy a hacksaw and a 32-tooth blade to saw the bottom rail. The only real mistake we made was putting in one of the rails (the rail that holds the separate […]

QotD: Potty Trained

Question: At what age were you potty trained? My Answer: I, like many boys, waited until I was nearly 3½ years old before I was potty trained. I remember once when my paternal grandparents were here, and I peed in the potty (from a step stool) and filled the whole bowl up with bubbles. I […]
