Loki's Domain goes 'bye-bye'

For those of you who have known me for awhile, you know that I have my own domain. Something rather odd happened recently - I cleared my cache and *poof*...my domain was gone!

Turns out it had expired on the 16th...but did I receive a 'renew now' or 'your domain will expire soon' e-mail? Nuh-uh...not a word, not a peep. Just *poof* =/

Not that I had done anything with my site in the last two years anyway, but still - it's MINE!

Surviving Christmas

Well, another Christmas has come and gone. The wife and I had a great weekend spending time with our families. We had lots of great food, played board games with relatives and drove all over the Wisconsin countryside. Both of us received some really cool presents - and gave some neat gifts to them as well! Hopefully our friends had a great holiday also...

Let It Snow ^3

We got our first 'real' snow yesterday...finally! Although it wasn't quite as dramatic as Denver's piles upon piles, it was nice to see everything covered in white. The trees were gorgeous on the drive home from work. We're supposed to get 1-3 inches, so hopefully we'll have a White Christmas after all! *crosses fingers*

I'm an Inland Northernite

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

Baggy Leather Pants

I completely forgot to post about this on Friday. I was on my way back from lunch, and this woman in her early 40's crossed the street with her SO and walked in front of me. She was wearing a holiday-ish red sweater...and baggy, loose fitting, black leather pants!!!

Now, it's bad enough to wear leather pants to work - even if it's a casual Friday - even if they fit. But come ON now, lines have definitely been crossed! It was the topic of the office that afternoon...and people went *eww*

My Day Off

Today starts the second year with my wonderful wife. =) We celebrated our first anniversary this weekend and had a great time! After having dinner at the restaurant where our reception was, we stayed at the same hotel where we stayed on our wedding night, reminisced about our past and discussed our future. We ordered breakfast in our room, and then went shopping for a few hours before relaxing at my parents' farm.

So, what about today you ask? I have a couple of vacation days that I have to burn before the end of the month or I'll lose them. It was a great way to start another year of married life - relaxed! =)

Guys Night Out!

Last night my ex-roomies and I spent the night out in our old stomping grounds. We went to Doolittles for drinks, which used to be an 'air cafe' (sports bar with aviation stuff everywhere) but recently got remodeled and is now a woodfire grill type restaurant...with less aviation stuff. Paul, Kurt, Keith and I talked about everything (almost too much about their kids, but not quite) and had a great time catching up! It was determined that we need to do this more often - we'll see how that pans out. =)
