The husband and I do a Lego advent calendar each year, and as we were opening today’s door this morning I casually mentioned that I had heard that advent calendars were falling out of favor. He expressed some dismay, then I said, “Yeah, it seems their days are numbered.” 

Thankfully he didn’t hit me. 😉

And now, the fourth fifth decade begins.

(Well, not until 8-something tonight, but I figure the day is close enough.)

The best part about the day after your birthday is that you get to have cake for breakfast.

Moose’s Rules of Life

Category: Rules,Silliness — Moose @ 8:55 pm

By special request, Moose’s Rules of Life:

  1. Life is inherently ridiculous.
  2. People are stupid.
  3. Fat is flavor.
  4. Of course I don’t fight fair; I’m an attorney.
  5. Youth is fleeting, but immaturity can be forever.
  6. The hotter the guy online, the further away he lives.

#2 is by far and away the most quoted of the rules (especially when I’m driving). #1 gets me through so many days working for the Federal government. #3 is more a truism than a rule, but it’s been there for a while now, so it’s stuck. #4 goes without saying. #5, well, it’s fun. And #6 is so, so, so, so, so, so true.

So there you have them, or at least what they are thus far.

It’s All Relative

Category: Aging,Silliness — Moose @ 8:25 am

Saturday I was told online that I was “pretty cute for an older guy”. (he was 19)

Yesterday I got carded at a restaurant when I ordered a beer.

These both amused me.

The Right Boy

Category: Sex,Silliness — Moose @ 7:06 pm

Dom/sub scenes frequently can border on the silly, which is why I don’t find myself indulging in them often (fighting the urge to giggle tends to kill the mood). But when the right sub (or Dom) comes along, how very hot they can be.

All Taped Up

You know you work in a government office when you have to tape shut the peeling edge of your office door to keep the laminate covering from hitting the frame each time you close it.

Saving Some For Later

Category: BC,Silliness,Stuff — Moose @ 3:34 pm

BC seemed shocked when I told him, “Why yes, I do own that lovely red & black Nasty Pig jock that you sent me the link to, and it’s quite nice.” I think he thought he’d seen the entirety of my toy/play clothes collection. Silly man.

A Pleasant Holiday

Well, that was a pleasant way to spend a weekend. Most of it was, thankfully, spent with BC. Quiet night in on Friday. He went home for a good chunk of Saturday, then came back that evening for an outing.

We headed out with friends for drinks, dinner and Cloverfield Saturday evening. The camera work did not make me sick, though I suspect it was a one-time watch for me (big screen – good; small screen – meh; at least that was my impression of it). I do also have to echo another bloggers comment that “I wanted to see more monster, and less people.” The relationship drama stuff could have been cut down in order to see more of the actual attack, and I suspect any military folks watching (as was the premise at the beginning) would have edited out all that extraneous stuff in favor of “more monster.”

We were very nearly late to dinner because, well, in the spirit of MAL (which we did not attend) I attacked him in some of my Nasty Pig gear when he came in the door about an hour before we had to head out. That was quite fun.

Sunday was langorous. We finally bestirred ourselves from some gaming in the morning after sleeping in (Mass Effect on the Xbox for me, Bioshock on his laptop for him), got a nice big late lunch at Thai Tanic, then picked up stuff at Whole Paycheck for a mushroom & sun-dried tomato risotto that evening. Yum!! Fantastic recipe out of Vegan with a Vengeance, though I modified it slightly (more rice, mainly). We were glad to spend most of the day indoors, since the temps never really made it out of the 20s. Poor BC forgot to bring gloves, so when we hauled the groceries back to the car (two bags total) I handed him one of mine for his bag. He laughed, but still took it gratefully as we wandered back, one gloved hand with groceries out, one hand firmly ensconced in a pocket.

Unfortunately he had to work today, but we have date plans tomorrow – another nice night in with movie and some soup (a curried split pea soup, to be precise). For most of the day I was a bum. Did hop on the bicycle trainer to spin out a few miles for a little over an hour, but mostly played more Mass Effect. Beat the game late this evening playing on “casual” mode, so I’ll have to play it through later on a more difficult level. For now it’s back to one or more of the games on the Wii, I suspect, so I can finish those and perhaps lend them to BC.

Back to the salt mines tomorrow, though even with all the other stuff I was doing this weekend I think I came up with a solution to a sticky wicket one of our programs has gotten into by mis-reading some of my office’s advice. Clarification (to the program; not here) shall be forthcoming tomorrow.
