6:37 AM

The past year has been a whirlwind of change.  New house, new job, new city, but some things just never change.

Monday through Friday I get up at 6:30am feed the dog, make coffee, take him out and begin the day.

Saturday and Sunday I would love to sleep until, say, 7am but no such luck.

In the life of The Dog there is no Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc. 

There is just Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4...Day 1567

And they all start, you guessed it, at 6:30am.

So as much as I would've liked to sleep in this Saturday morning, instead I was up at 6:37am, feeding the dog and making coffee.

Because some things just never change.

Why Nerds Stick Together

This all started with a conversation at the office about iPhones.  Anyone that knows me knows that I call my iPhone the iPrecious, I love it that much, but it's also a not so subtle homage to my love of the Lord of the Rings...

Co-Worker: You call it the Precious?

Me: Yeah, you know, from the LOTR.

Co-Worker: ...blank stare

Me: Please tell me you've seen the LOTR.

Co-Worker: I've seen the first one, when my son was small.

Me: So you know how Golem calls the ring his precious.

Co-Worker: Well, I've seen it up until the train comes into the station.

Me: The train?

Co-Worker: Yeah, the Hogwarts train.

Me: THAT'S HARRY POTTER! How can you possibly confuse The Lord of the Rings with Harry Potter?!!

Co-Worker: Is that the one written by J.K. Rowling?

Me: *shaking my head* Oh my god, I don't know how we can possibly be friends.

This is a classic example of why nerds flock together.
