It’s possible that you’ve noticed that I don’t post a lot here anymore. This blog has admittedly fallen mostly into disuse. This should not be a surprise to anyone.
It occurs to me, though, that some of you may wonder what I’m doing instead of writing blog posts. (Others of you, I’m sure, couldn’t care less. But that’s not going to stop me telling you.) So here I am, back again, to tell you what . . . → Read More: Where I’ve been
You know, I was going to write a whole post about the specifics of stuff I loved about The Avengers. You’ve already seen my spoiler-free gushing (assuming you have done your homework properly). I thought about the stuff I would say – the coolness of Black Widow’s “terror” scene with the Hulk; the coolness of Banner and Hulk; the scenes that went on just a little too long, like the argument on the helicarrier; Coulson’s . . . → Read More: The Avengers (2012) with spoilers, and new things on the internet
My wife cheats.
There is no way she’s done this without cheating.
See, it started out innocently enough. She started putting up cute little statuses on Facebook about the things our kids were doing. Her friends started encouraging her to write them down and save them. Then even non-kid related statuses started generating discussion. Along the way the idea of a blog came along.
But she didn’t want to do it. She was afraid no . . . → Read More: Cheater!
Today’s my birthday. Woo hoo! I managed to not die again this year!
(I’m really not sure where I’m going with this post, but I figured I might as well use this occasion to write something. We’ll see if it turns out to be interesting. You’ve been warned.)
My kids came in to wish me happy birthday this morning. That was cool (though I was a little groggy at the time). My oldest was actually . . . → Read More: Birthday ramblings
I got up this morning and read an email that referred to a comment made on Twitter… that’s a Tweet, for those who’ve been under a technological rock for the past few years.
I don’t really know why I did it, but I went out and created a Twitter account (@caddickisms, if you’re curious). I’m now “following” a couple of people and a few celebrities. I’ve already unfollowed one of them. I’ve created a list . . . → Read More: Tweet
I know you didn’t notice, but I did. This site was down for about 20 hours due to a glitch that showed I had overspent my bandwidth allocation. I hadn’t, but that didn’t stop them from taking my site down.
Anyway… we’re back now.
And we are, in fact, better than ever! I’ve joined the mere thousands upon thousands of sites listed on iTunes!
Yes, that’s right, you can now find the TIDBABSH podcast on . . . → Read More: We’re back, and better than ever in “We’re back, and better than ever!”
I just finished recording with my wife the inaugural edition of my completely new and wonderful conception: the “Things I didn’t blog about but should have” podcast.
That’s right, you can hear in live, monophonic sound, my own voice telling you about the things that I just didn’t bother writing about!
How much would you pay for that?! WAIT! Don’t answer… there’s more.
Each edition will have someone talking with me about the things I . . . → Read More: Coming soon…
This is it, the final day of the 7 day challenge! Today’s topic is: Share hints or details of what I intend to write about in the future.
Well, let’s peer into my crystal ball and see what fate awaits us…
Anybody know how to turn this thing on? All I’m seeing is my reflection.
Wait, wait… I’m getting something… it looks like… yeah, it’s… oh, crap it’s just re-runs of “What’s Happening Now?!”

In the 7 day challenge, today’s topic is: Write a blog post on the same topic as one of my most popular posts.
By far, in both page views and comments, my most popular post is one I wrote a little over two years ago about how my daughter smeared Desitin cream all over herself and everything she could get her hands on. After a failed internet search, I was pleading for a way to . . . → Read More: How to get Silly Putty out of clothes – 7 day challenge
In the 7 day challenge, today’s topic is: Answer one question I think people visiting my blog may have.
Let’s be honest: I have no idea what question you guys/gals may have. Y’all need to speak up more for me to discern that.
So that leaves me with a choice – I can come up with some completely self-serving question like “what’s the best post you’ve written?” or I can make up something that allows . . . → Read More: How geeky are you, really? – 7 day challenge
