Before we went to visit my parents in Mississippi, Brian’s hair looked like this:
Less than 24-hours after getting there, my dad buzzed Brian’s hair off. It was pretty short and made his beautiful blue eyes stand out:
But then! We went to see The Last Airbender and this happened (Brian’s doing Airbender moves here):
When Kevin picked us up at the airport, Brian made sure to have the arrow covered by his hands so Kevin wouldn’t see the new cut right away. Brian lifted his hands and said, “Surprise!” Kevin loved it, as I knew he would. We’re all really impressed with the great job my dad did and how well Brian sat still for it!
I got up really
early this morning to go take pictures of the sunrise. It’s something I’ve been thinking about doing pretty much since we moved here. Since I don’t have anywhere I need to be today or much I have to do, I decided that today was the day. It was totally worth it
Now I’m going to take a nap.
Shawn Medero asked for some Rails resources on Twitter last night, and here they are. All of the blogs are from my feed reader and the links are things that are pretty much always on one of my first five browser tabs. I’m sure I’m missing some great Ruby and Rails blogs from this list, so if you have any… bring ‘em on.
- I use O’Reilly’s Ruby in a Nutshell as a desk reference all the time. It’s so worn out, I probably need to order another copy (although I do have the PDF now).
- With Rails 3 just around the corner, I would wait if you want to get a Rails book. Maybe start with the Manning Early Access Program and get Rails 3 In Action
I only listen to one Ruby podcast: Ruby5 – It’s only a couple times a week and only 5 minutes at a time, which is perfect for short attention spans.
I’ve been blogging, right here, for ten years. The first post on lawver.net was on 07/20/2000 and didn’t say a whole lot. Since then, though, Jen and I have posted 2,631 entries. Jen didn’t start blogging here until about 2005, so out of that, almost 2,000 of them are mine.
I don’t think I’ve stuck with a hobby longer than this, except maybe collecting comic books when I was a kid (non-stop from age eleven until 22 and then off and on collections).
I’m pretty proud of this little blog. Yes, the design is old, and it’s slow at times. But, it’s a record of our lives over the last ten years that I wouldn’t have otherwise.
Here’s to the next ten and whatever comes next.
