Quality time with Mr. Laykey

Change, they say, is the only constant thing in life. I’ve recently found out that Mr. Baby grew on me (apparently while I wasn’t looking), so he’s now a big guy. As such, I have to “promote” him from Mr. Baby to Mr. Laykey (plus, he’s the house chairman. And he can slap me if he wants to, so I’d better behave.)

Anyhow, here are some of the highlights from this week:


Do NOT try me. As you might have noticed, I’ve been weight training. I will kick your butt from here to the hereafter if you try me.23052011056




I’m just hanging with this dude. Like he’s my charity case for the week. Now get that camera off my face. I really don’t want to be seen in public with this dude. I mean, I’m way too cool to really be hanging with him!

Economics in simple terms

just got this on Twitter from Gaminegirlie, and it was worth a couple of laughs, so i thought to share.

Economics in simple terms

You see a girl at a party:

  1. You say, “I am very rich, marry me” — that’s direct marketing.
  2. One of your friends pointing at you says, “He is very rich, marry him” — that’s advertising.
  3. She walks up to you and says, “You are very rich, can you marry me?” — that’s brand recognition.
  4. You say, “I am very rich, marry me” and she gives you a nice hard slap — that’s customer feedback.
  5. You say to her, “Marry me” and she introduces her husband — that’s demand and supply gap.
  6. Before you say anything your wife arrives — that’s restriction on entry of new firm.

Very simple terms, no?
