I have a good 10 inches in the front

I know that this sounds fantastic to some of you, but it’s really a burden when you have to live with this.

I’m talking about snow, of course.

Yesterday we got the (thankfully!) last snow storm of February. The main problem with a “spring” snowstorm is that the snow starts to melt as it’s falling, so we literally get masssive clumps of wet, heavy snow.

It’s perfect for building snowmen, not so awesome for shoveling.

Now if you’ll excuse me while I go have a heart attack. 😉



Let it snow. Shit.

Well, this might come as a surprise to you, especially if you’re kinda new around here, but I hate snow with a passion.

I know, I know. Canadian dude who hates snow, what are the odds right? Actually there’s at least another Canadian that hates snow that we all know. Moving along.

So this morning I woke up to a slight dusting of snow:


Look! White stuff!!!


Are we moving to Florida soon?

As you can see, nothing too major, but it’s snow! And of course, you noticed that I put up the Holiday thing (what’s that called?) wreath, dork on the door. And just so you know, during the non-holiday months, it’s just on the inside of the door. Seriously.

Anyways, there’s one thing that I hate more than snow, and it’s idiots who don’t know how to park a car. I think I’ve mentioned it at least once here, but look at that:



That person should be shot. “Hybrid” doesn’t mean “between two spaces”, especially when there’s no one to your left for the next 4 spots. Sigh. I think you should drive an “Inbred”.

One bullet short of a full gun (9)

  • Off : OMFS*!!! I can’t believe I’m done with work until next year! W00t! 13 sweet sweet days of not having to work. I flirted with the idea of stepping off the grid for 13 days, but that would be madness I tell you! MADNESS!
  • With : Once again and for the third time, we are with lice. But with our most excellent families and with the awesome comments from fellow bloggers, it looks like we will be with families for Christmas. FMIL is fully equipped to deal with the onslaught of the six-legged critters.
  • Their : However, I’m not impress with my kid’s school. Their lice policy is non existent, their communicating skills are lacking at best and their concern about this being a problem does not really show in their communications, when they don’t forget to send them.
  • Fucking : Fuck the fucking weather. Once again, the fucking weather lady is on my list of persons to sternly glare at if I ever meet her face to face. She fucking tells me that I’ll get to shovel 20cm (7 inches) of snow over the weekend. This wouldn’t be so bad if the 3cm she predicted for Tuesday didn’t turn into 8 inches, the “light dusting” she predicted for Wednesday didn’t turn into 3 inches of white shit. If I do the simple math, I should really be expecting 50 inches of stuff to shovel over the weekend. Fucking weather lady.
  • Heads : Yesterday we had the Christmas party at my office. The department heads have to cover, 0ut of pocket, the cost of the staff party. There’s a policy that says the university does not pay for food and drinks and room rental for employees activities. I think this is a good policy, the money should be used to help the students and professors, as they really need help. The result for our party was enough food for 30 people to lightly snack on. The problem? This event was advertised as a lunch, and we’re 75 employees.

    In pure Call of Cthulhu tradition, I’ll keep the last bullet for myself for when the actual madness comes.

    *Oh My Fucking’ Self. Yes, I think that highly of myself. 😉

I need a CSS expert

Avitable asked for help a few days ago with a PHP project, and it inspired me to ask for help myself.

I’m looking for an expert in CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) that can work fast and do an excellent job. I need a stylesheet redesign in order to transform this less than stellar look:



into this one:


Let me know if you’re up for it. I need this to happen as soon as possible. Please. Help.
