Monster Jam came back to the Washington Region this weekend. We had a blast watching Grave Digger, Stinger, Backwards Bob, Crushstation, Krazy Train, Spike, Megabite, and Aftershock tearing up the dirt in the Verizon Center. The format was a bit different this year, but we enjoyed it. New memories, and a whole batch of photos were gained. Click below for more.
Tonight I had to change my son’s diaper. The men’s room at the restaurant we were at did not have a changing table, so I knocked a few times and ducked into the ladies room to use their changing table. I was very anxious someone would walk in. Luckily the only person that did come in was my Mother in law… so she stuck around and acted as look out until I was done.
So I created this sign, to print and keep handy (not sure how I’ll attach it to the door… hmmm) for the next time.
Feel free to download and print out this PDF to keep for future situations.
It was pouring down rain when I tried to grill out on Labor Day. However I wanted to teach my son an important lesson. It’s Labor Day, you gotta have something from the grill. Be it yours, or a good friend’s. It started pouring, but I would not be daunted from trying out the awesome burgers I had put together. You gotta do hand formed patties of ground beef, mixed with Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, a dash of Mrs. Dash, a drop of liquid smoke, and one egg to give the patties some consistency. I push a small thumb hole in the middle of the patty so they don’t puff up, and I drink one bottle of Yeungling for timing.
Here is my grill, with steam wafting off the top. The burgers were tasty, almost as delicious as the irony. The rain stopped about 5 minute after I served up the burgers.
A new report from Reuters is claiming it will take almost $300,000 to raise a child born in 2008 to adulthood. They obviously do not buy Thomas the Tank Engine or Playmobil or XBoxes for their children.
Oh, the article states this doesn’t include the cost of college or childbirth.
I work in Washington DC and many of the merchants I come across post their Minimum Credit Card Purchase policy. I’ve tried to buy a $2 chocolate milk with my debit card and been told that I have to spend at least [$10] to use my credit card. Thanks to reading the The Consumerist I know that it is against the store’s Merchant Agreement to demand a minimum purchase.
