Thanksgiving

Here is the reason we went up to San Jose for Thanksgiving. This is my niece, Myla, who just turned one not too long ago. Her upper teeth are probably due out soon so she likes to chew on her tongue.

Myla with her mom and the bunny we got for her.

Here Michelle is telling her the importance of online web presence.

Kids like me, and I think it’s because I look like a cartoon.

We made her play with the bunny every chance we got so it would become her favorite, and then we would become her favorite. Muahahahha!

Myla plays like a little boy. She doesn’t like to sit still and only has one speed, extreme. I was fascinated by the fact that she can┬ámimic┬ájust about any sound you make. She can pop her lips, click her tongue, and do whatever that thing is called in the video.

Now that we’re done looking at my adorable niece, let’s talk about family and food.

People ask whether spending time with my niece makes me want to have kids any sooner. Playing with kids is pretty fun, but part of the fun is being able to say, “She pooped. Playtime timeout. Someone take care of this.” What you don’t see in all these pictures is all the hard work the parents put into raising Myla. You also don’t see the loads of stuff they have just to accomplish that task. Hard work is hard. As I am having a difficult time taking care of myself most of the time, I don’t think pushing up kids is a great idea.

Need More Weekend

It’s always great to see friends home for the holiday weekend, but all the socializing takes its toll.

Wednesday night bowling and Rock Band 2 with friends.

Thanksgiving was family and food. I drummed for three hours on Rock Band with my cousins, and I think pulled something.

Friday was my 10-year high school reunion. I woke up still drunk the next morning. Hopefully I kept a low profile or at least won some sort of dance off. I somehow doubt either of those things happened.

Saturday was spent enjoying some good burgers at Father’s Office, followed by watching Slumdog Millionaire. This movie is absolutely incredible. I’m going to stop complaining about my life, because of this film. I recommend that everyone go see it to get some perspective. If you’re not into gaining perspective, the female lead is super hot.

Today was spent taking it easy. As I was sitting at home, the clouds rolled in from the ocean and covered the ocean and the whole Los Angeles Basin. Absolutely nothing was visible, except for downtown, Century City, and the Hollywood sign.

After all this activity, I’m almost ready to get back to the regular schedule of work. Almost… See you guys at work!
