I don't expect you to know, but "apagar" is Spanish for "to turn off," as in powering down something such as lights or a TV...
Yanno something? I don't think anyone even bothered to guess on last week's logo edition of Macro Monday. What a bummer. I even thought it was kinda easy. Oh well.
Remember how gung-ho I was about War for the Planet of the Apes' release more than two months ago? Well, I finally saw it tonight on the big screen.
It was a weird music day for me today. I was wrapping up a new paint job in our master bathroom and decided to take a listen to the new album Concrete and Gold by Foo Fighters.
What fresh hell hit Chicagoland today?
I thought it might be interesting to post my first photos on Flickr and Instagram as a Throwback Thursday this week. Why not, right?
Remember a while back when I asked if #YonduOnTerra could be my new #StorminNorman? Well, I took one giant leap towards legitimizing it. I made a new blog.
By way of celebration of his actual birthday, how about a photo recap of Nathan's previous year?
I was really worried about last week's Macro Monday challenge photo. I literally had someone guess it correctly within a minute of posting. But then no one else got it.
I'm just going to make it simple and give you a bunch of photos from our day.
I did something last night I told myself I wasn't going to do. I had convinced myself I didn't want to do. I saw the remade version of It in theaters.

It should be obvious where this Throwback Thursday was taken... el Gran Cañon!
As much as I used to dominate in step challenges in the past, this has not been the case so much lately. Despite rolling back my daily step goal by 2,000 steps, I'm not even making that regularly.
Sometimes, predictive text can be a source of utter frustration. Other times, it can be a font of unending humor.
I did get an alcoholic beverage guess from Marty, but not the right one. But he was still closest.
This is my favorite kind of weekend.
Katie and I tackled one of those lingering monsters around the house today... the attic. We didn't do the whole thing, but we pulled out about a dozen containers and boxes and put back about four of them.
It really drives me nuts when I see this...
Last year, I posted a Throwback Thursday of Katie with Olympic figure skating champion Evan Lysacek and his Dancing with the Stars partner Anna Trebunskya from 2010.
"Mommy... Daddy... Do people die?"
Nathan asked us this the other day. It caught us completely off-guard and blew our minds.
For this edition of Tu(n)esday/My Favorite Song, I would like to talk about one of my all-time favorite bands. A band that I have known longer than any band and been a fan of longer than just about any other. That band? KISS.
Happy Labor Day. The irony is not lost on me that Illinois auto mechanics are all still on strike.
Sometimes Nathan is an open book. You know what he thinks and means with no question whatsoever. He's simple.
Because we are all caught up on Gilmore Girls, we can't find our Psych DVD sets, I haven't convinced Katie that Stranger Things is something she wants to see, and fall TV hasn't kicked back in yet, we started re-watching The Office on Netflix.
It only took three years since opening in theaters, about half a year of "possessing" my brother's Bluray copy of the movie, and a two-week countdown to the release of the sequel to finally watch Kingsman: The Secret Service.
Have I ever told you the story of this?**
I wish there was some kind of physical punishment available for writers of hyper-sensationalized headlines for news stories both online and in print.
I was futzing around with a fidget spinner the other day that I found open at a store. Suddenly I was reminded of something from my childhood.
Clearly this one was wayyyyy macro. I don't believe anyone got it. Very few even guessed and that's no fun. Maybe I'll make up for it this week with a logo. I think people like those.
It's back to the shop I go. Back to the shop I go. Hi-ho the derry-o. It's back to the shop I go.
I know the actual day is still more than three weeks away, but today we celebrated Nathan's birthday with a pool party before it closes for the season.
I can't believe I missed it! Missed what?
Since I posted that picture of Roger the other day, I thought I would show a pic of my very first laptop. His name might have been Lomby or the like, which is short for Lombard, the model of G3 PowerBook it is.
While Snippet posts are nice and quick and fun, the downside to them is that you otherwise obliterate a bunch of potential blog posts in one fell swoop.
