I went to the Renaissance fair with my family and my brothers paid a jester to follow me around and heckle me.

That or I'm having crazy deja vu.

My point is time may heal the wound but not the memory of it.

My mom forgot me at Pizza Hut before going to see Bambi, I never saw it until I had my own child.

My parents got tickets for Noah's Ark for my birthday, I was so excited I stayed up most of the night and fell asleep and then no one woke me up and so they left without me. I've still never been to Noah's Ark (by choice actually, I went to a different water park in Rockford, and hated it and solemnly vowed to never go to another water park ever).

I was sick for my birthday party after being forced to march behind a pink manure spreader in a parade and fell asleep and everyone ate my Batman birthday cake.

A flamethrower, covered in mud, saws, and a mini bobcat, all before lunch time.

8 year old me would be very proud of who I've become.

I was helping arrange job shadow opportunities for seventh-graders in a midwestern college town. Plenty of doctors, and lawyers, and architects, etc, but one I had the hardest time with was a boy who wanted to drive a bobcat. The big construction contractors turned me down flat citing 'insurance'.

Connections were polled, uncles were quizzed and we finally found a private contractor who was willing to let a 12-year-old dig dirt and toss it around.

If you're ever in a spot to volunteer to let your younger self experience this, please let it be known loudly and clearly.

I have! In fact my daughter will start working with us part time next summer.

In fact, we haven't been as hard hit by the labor shortage as a lot of companies in the area because quite a few of us have teenagers and then they get their friends to work there too.

I can't play Minecraft, I'll start it and then I'm like "I can build this faster with my own hands" and then I have to go outside and build something.

Also, if you build a stone house like they do in Minecraft people will die.

How to become the coolest dad in school in one easy step.

1. Walk into classroom at the end of the day and casually tell your child "Yeah, I got to use a flame thrower at work today".

Bonus points: You have a picture to prove it.

I'm starting to feel better, unfortunately the pilot light on our hot water heater is not working so someone is fixing that tomorrow.

Considering how much I sweat when I'm ill this isn't ideal.

For other people, I still have almost no sense of smell so I'm good.

Why living in the Midwest is like an episode of King of the Hill.

There are old people that watch practices for the local high school football team, with their own chairs even.

Practice, high school football.

I had thought Lisa Marlene's school's dress code was a recent addition with the new school year.

But yeah, in Wisconsin only the b!~@%~& crazy religious schools have dress codes and they're only there to keep women down (I have yet to see a dress code geared towards men).

At any rate I feel pretty terrible today so I'm not really getting into a big discussion about it just that my opinion is colored by my upbringing.

So, I'm interested in other people's takes on this, so I'll try to report just the facts and see what people think:

(1) GothBard's company invited her to a "team building" picnic and requested an RSVP, which she happily accepted
(2) Once she had responded, she was assigned to one of four "teams" and told that the four teams would be competing in a series of events, and the winning team would receive "trash talking rights" and a trophy for winning
(3) At a meeting on Tuesday the various team members were already eagerly trash talking each other
(4) This morning the trophy showed up: A 5' hunk of bling the winning team would get to put up in the office and boast about for the rest of the year

So... thoughts?

If they recently hired Steve Carrel, Jenna Fisher, or Rainn Wilson she might be in a reunion episode of The Office.

I have to get a bus pass for Crookshanks (the only thing we forgot before school).

I can either wait 10 days for it to arrive in the mail, drive to the bus depot downtown and be done with it in an hour tops, or take a bus and make an adventure out of it.

I chose the third option, naturally.

Also, g@+!$%n f$%!ing rain.

Yet another job with a gate with about an inch of clearance on either side of the mini bobcat.

Also, there is such a thing as too much sedum, which is a surprise to no one.

New job is in Oregon (the town), or as it's called in Wisconsin, Or-AH-gone.

It's crazy how quiet the city gets on Sundays, even though it's a hard left-leaning college town with almost no church attendance. Mondays aren't this dead. The internet seems to die down Sundays, too.

It's so weird.

Saturdays don't die like this, so it isn't a weekend thing or a "we got f@@#ed up last night and are hungover" thing. Mondays through Thursdays don't die like this, so it isn't a "work tomorrow" thing.

The only explanation I can think of is tradition for tradition's sake (also known as "just arbitrary").

It's the Midwest, everyone is home watching the local sportsball team win/lose.

Excellent, thank you! I made key lime curd yesterday. I wanted a key lime meringue pie.

I love key lime, If you want less meringue (I personally prefer less meringue on key lime pie, but I might be in the extreme minority there).

3 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar
6 tablespoons of sugar.

Beat four minutes instead of five.

For the record I usually wake up before the crack of dawn.

For meringue I usually use the Better Homes and Gardens recipe.

4 egg whites
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of cream of tartar
1/2 cup of sugar.

Combine the egg whites, vanilla, and cream of tartar. Beat it for about a minute or so until soft peaks form.

Gradually add the sugar and then beat it again for about five minutes until you get stiff, glossy peaks and the sugar dissolves when you rub a tiny bit between your fingers (it feels completely smooth).

A couple of tips for meringue.

1. Let your eggs stand at room temperature for a half hour before making.

2. Make sure all your bowls and utensils are washed with a thick lather of soap and dried beforehand as meringue is incredibly touchy with any grease or oil.

3. Make sure your filling you're putting it over is still hot as this will prevent weeping or shrinkage (the filling cooks the bottom of the meringue, cool filling means undercooked meringue, I did it once, it was gross!).

Madison is a biking mecca, people come here from other countries just to use our thousands of miles of bike trails.

Just wait until the mechanic puts the periscope on our trailer like we've been requesting* for the last year and a half.

*They have a white board where you write down equipment issues or requests, every time they clear it co-worker writes "trailer #1 needs a periscope" hasn't happened yet but eventually the mechanic will get the right combination of bored and drunk to do it.
