A slightly random thought

I can’t believe in evolution because I accidentally bite my own lip at least once a week. I doubt that any of my supposed evolutionary ancestors are that inept when they eat.


I purchased Mac OS X 10.4 this past weekend. I’ve spent two days trying to get my computer to recognize the installation DVD. It still doesn’t work. Until it does, it’s going to be very difficult for me to post much. Thank you for your patience.

Update: If you don’t hear from me for a week, it’s because I’ve chewed off my own head. Sometimes I love computers, but sometimes…

Update: I finally got it fixed by using a friend’s computer to copy the install disk onto my iPod, then installing the OS from my iPod. Now I’m just trying to figure out how to use this new operating system.


Mrs. Happy and I began leading a small Bible-study-type group earlier tonight. We’ll be going through a study on creativity as an integral part of Christian spirituality. I’m excited, but it will leave me no time to blog on Thursdays. I’m trying to figure out some way to compensate, but real life trumps blogging at least for this week.


Our seventh wedding anniversary trumps blogging today. For your reading pleasure,
though, here’s a sonnet (No. 130) by William Shakespeare that we both like:

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red:
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound.
I grant I never saw a goddess go:
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.


I’m doing some freelance work this week that takes up eight hours of my day. Now I’m wondering how I ever had time to blog when I had a full-time job. I’m also wondering if I’ll ever have time to blog once my baby’s born. For now, though, I just need to sleep. While I still can.


For reasons too complicated to explain in an entertaining manner, I had to spend all of yesterday and most of today away from my wife (and even my computer). Quality time trumps blogging today.


There are things going on in the Happy Household—nice, good, blog-trumping things,
the bulk of which I wrote about all last week. I do have one announcement, though.
This blog will be moving soon to a more logical domain: TheHappyHusband.com.
The new design, which demonstrates every design technique I have learned in my vast experience as a writer, is just about ready for prime time. All it needs are a few animated
GIFs and it will be complete.

Not really. Basically, I bought the domain and posted a really obnoxious index
page. I actually bought the domain a couple of months ago. I am still working
on a new design with a new content management system, but it’s slow going.
It may go more quickly now that I have no job and my days are freer, but it
may go more slowly now that I have a pregnant wife and am focusing more of
my time on making sure their needs are met. Anyway, don’t change your bookmarks
just yet. Please.


I’m not sure if it’s my uncertain future, my miserable cold, or
of 24 Season
1 on DVD
that I’ve watched in the past two days, but something
seems to be
melting my brain and I can’t think of anything to write. I’m realizing anew just
how much my wife loves me and cherishes our marriage, though. That’s certainly something.


My wife gave me a cold, so now I’m ill in addition to being unemployed. It’s
my fault, though. I guess I’d rather be sick for a couple of days than go an
hour without kissing her. Anyway, sickness trumps blogging today.

In the meantime, check out the two new poems on the Where We’re From page:
Where Shannon’s From and Where
Theresa’s From

Also, don’t miss the Challies
with my geek friend Rey (of The
Bible Archive
). In it, he
sheds some light on why he’s the Christian blogger most likely to be accused
of heresy. He even gives a shout-out to The Happy Husband.
