For the Librarians: The Do-Wii Decimal System

The Good

My friend Rebecca came over yesterday for dinner and some Wii-ing.

I met her through Dave’s blog, in the comments section. She was in town a while ago for a convention and we went for coffee.

I suggested she come over for dinner and so that’s what we did.

After dinner we played some Wii games.

Needless to say, my ass was handed to me on a silver platter in Wii Tennis.



The Bad and Ugly

I used to give spare change to homeless people.

That is, until I gave one a generous sum and then saw him walking into an LCBO later that day.

Do you think it’s wrong of me not to give spare change out anymore?

I am a Mayor Pain in the Ass

Help Me Grow My City

I don’t normally get into the habit of asking people to click things. At least not on here.

The links I am posting do not benefit anyone other than me. They will not create world peace, nor will they donate money to the poor.

However, I am pretty sure that nothing bad will happen. No viruses or spam will haunt you, so at least there is no risk of annoyance.

MyMiniCity is a web-based SimCity-type game. Every click (you can only click one option per person per day) grows the city. It’s fun to watch. Like electronic Sea Monkeys.

At the outset, you can only grow your base population. After a while, though, other things are unlocked that allow your city to thrive.

So go ahead, and click already. Barkingtowne awaits…


  • Click here to grow my population by one person.
  • Click here to expand my city’s industrial sector.

Sister Cities

Similarly, my friend Rituro has started his own city.

Show him some love…

Snucking the Googies

Things You Should Know Before Having Kids

Adults who are sick with colds tend to be pretty miserable.

It’s true.

Think about the last time you had a cold. All of the endless nose-blowing and throat-clearing. So many tissues. Chicken soup leaking out of your ears because you ingested so much of it.

Now picture the same sickness, but the horrible inability to blow your nose because you don’t know how.

Welcome to the world of being a baby.



Enter…The Aspirator

For this purpose a wonderful tool was invented. It is called the nasal aspirator


It’s a wonderful utility that allows you to use suction to extract mucus.

Mrs. J calls it The Snot Sucker.

Rightly so. That’s essentially what it does.

Even such a small device can evoke a lot of humour.

The other day I was talking to her on the phone. She was sleep deprived, as the whole household had been embroiled in a battle with the cold virus and due to this condion, she was inventing new words. These words made complete sense, even though they didn’t exist in the official English Dictionary.

This one word, though, is one of the best words ever invented…

As for googies, you will have to ask my friend Kirk about that.
