Baby William

3/6/09 - 8:13AM

8lbs. 1oz. - 19.5in.

He's here, healthy, and cute as a button. Jonathan and I are totally in love, and Jackson will meet him later today.

Between consistent fever, chills, and severe nausea, I didn't have the most awesome yesterday but am feeling notably better today. Oh, and the IV was actually worse than the spinal block.

I'll have a few pictures up when I'm home in a day or two. I'm on my BlackBerry, so I hope this blog looks somewhat like intelligible English.

You ever take it off any sweet jumps?

Posted By MotoLinz on Jun 21, 2008 at 7:40PM

Earlier today, I spotted a billboard for KnoxTube.com, a site for local video blogs and other random crap that bored people in East TN want to post. Naturally, the second we got home, I had to check it out. This is the first video I found...

Noggin's Critter Comrades

I tried to post this one as a comment in SPM's blog on the subject, but it got flagged. This is my new favorite Moose A. Moose song. I am in a shit mood, and it's put a smile on my face. :D

Anyone dealt with CarMax?

Posted By MotoLinz on Mar 3, 2008 at 12:13PM

I am still on the hunt for a car, and I've been eyeballing CarMax since I want to go used, and they seem to have decent deals. I've heard that they don't give anything for a trade-in, but that's not really a concern since I will probably just sell my car privately.

Mostly, I'm wondering about the quality of the vehicles - do they really go over them with a fine-toothed comb? And, how is the overall buying experience? No haggling sounds nice to me, but is the rest of the process relatively pain-free? Also, if anyone knows anything about their guarantees or warranties, I'm interested in that info, also.


Fierce People

Posted By MotoLinz on Feb 8, 2008 at 7:55PM

I rented this on a whim, 'cause everything else at Blockbuster looked stinky. I didn't know a thing about it, but WOW. I actually think it might take a spot in my Top 10.

This description from IMDB sums it up as best as possible, I think:

"Trapped in his mother's Lower East Side apartment, sixteen-year-old Finn (Anton Yelchin) wants nothing more than to escape New York and spend the summer in South America studying the Iskanani Indians, or "Fierce People," with the anthropologist father he's never met. But Finn's dreams are shattered when he is arrested in a desperate effort to help his drug-dependent mother, Liz (Diane Lane), who scrapes by working as a masseuse. Determined to get their lives back on track, Liz moves the two of them into a guesthouse on the vast country estate of her ex-client, the aging aristocratic billionaire, Ogden C. Osbourne (Donald Sutherland). In Osbourne's close world of privilege and power, Finn and Liz encounter a tribe fiercer and more mysterious than anything they might find in the South American jungle: the super rich. While Liz battles her substance abuse and struggles to win back her son's love and trust, Finn falls in love with Osbourne's beautiful granddaughter, Maya (Kristin Stewart), befriends her charismatic older brother, Bryce (Chris Evans), and even wins the favor of Osbourne himself. But when a shocking act of violence shatters Finn's ascension within the Osbourne clan, the golden promises of this lush world quickly sour. And both Finn and Liz, caught in a harrowing struggle for their dignity, discover that membership always comes at a price..."

So, add it to your Netflix queues. :bossy: A little funny, a little sad, all-around quirky and enthralling - very excellent.

Volvo opinions?

Posted By MotoLinz on Feb 2, 2008 at 1:22PM

We went car shopping, today - again.

I looked at the Land Rover LR3, Volvo XC90, and the BMW X5. The LR3 was a major disappointment, and the whole new poser Land Rover scene is a pool of doucherty that I'm just not ready to jump into. I've lusted after the X5 since it came to the market, but my head tells me that the XC90 is just the best bang for the buck out of the three. The fit and finish were really nice, and it had great space with a third row of seats that folds flat. I've driven an X5 before, and it's comfortable and fun, but I see the XC90 being more family-friendly and having a much more pleasant longevity to it.

(I didn't drive any of them today, but I'll get to that eventually. Also, I am definitely buying used, 'cause I refuse to take the new car hit.)

I don't know the first thing about Volvos, other than that they're supposedly safe and are probably designed by a bunch of guys named Sven. So, I'm going to research a little bit online, but if anyone has any experience with them or opinions (especially the XC90, though I'll listen to anything), I'm all ears. :)

Sundance Catalog

Posted By MotoLinz on Jan 24, 2008 at 6:13AM

This is Robert Redford's company, and I have no idea how I got on their mailing list, but I'm not complaining. I love this catalog. I want to buy all the furniture and home accessories, I adore the jewelry ('cause I'm really into silver rather than gold), and I love the leather goods.


A few of the items that want to come live with me:

...at your son's one-year check-up, "biscuits and gravy" is listed as a breakfast option on the dietary profile sheet. :rotfl:
