What I Learned This Weekend

Here are just some of the things I learned or picked up over the weekend.

When reviewing my blogs stats Sunday I noticed that one of the searches someone did to find my site was for "hairy daddy." I tried to replicate this search in Google but could only find porn sites. Great, what are people thinking when they are looking for my site, a big hairy daddy in charge? Since I couldn't find the site through Google, I realized that someone used "ask.com" to find my site. So I learned two things from this, there are perverted people out there searching for hairy daddies and that ask.com still exists. Why anyone does not use google or yahoo, I don't know. (disclaimer: my wife works at AOL so you should all be using their search engine)

A trip to the amusement park revealed quite a bit this weekend. I am officially old, Dippin' Dots is no longer the ice cream of the future, now it's just ice cream. I guess that the future is now, making me an old man.  Somewhere along the way the present and the future collided.  I never thought that I would be able to see the future, but apparently I can.

I can go on roller coasters called Nitro and Steel Force but I can't go on rides called Road Runner Railroad. First of all, I barely fit and second of all every time the train hits a bump my back is perfectly positioned in the car to absorb it. I have never been in as much pain getting off a ride than I was exiting this death trap. Of course the kids wanted to ride it THREE TIMES IN A ROW! Who's in charge here anyway?

Back on the roller coaster point, Nitro is hands down the BEST roller coaster that I have ever been on. This roller coaster has no flips, it's just sheer speed and hills. It really gives you the sense that you are flying. Everytime I ride it I exit with a smile in my face, I can't say that about a lot of other roller coasters. If you would like to experience it for yourself, take a look.

Finally, my in laws will fall asleep anywhere. It's something that we have had to deal with since I have known them. One minute they are wide awake and you are having a conversation with them and the next you realize that you are talking to yourself. You just never know when they are going to decide to take a nap. Here they are in the middle of Great Adventure, a convenient place to take a rest if you ask me.

Oh yeah we bought a car too, but there will be much more to come on that in the future.  I don't know if I completely learned anything from that I didn't already know.
