Carter is a Rockvale Rocket

Today is Carter's first full day of Kindergarten. I can't beleive that he's that old already. It seems like only yesterday that I was rocking him to sleep and changing diapers. I don't even think I
could describe in words how proud I am of him. He's so smart and inquisitive. He's just starting to figure out how to read. I am can't wait until we can read together. I hope I can instill in him a
love of reading, like I have. He's already well on his way. I can't wait until I get home and can hear all about his first day of school.

Last week (or so) I posted a photo my Dad sent me over on Superheroes-R-Us.com. Today, I’m posting this list of Laws of Ultimate Reality because I can count many times that a lot of them have been true.

I think Dad always falls victim to “Wilson’s Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy.”

Law of Mechanical Repair
After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you’ll have to pee.

Law of Gravity
Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.

Law of Probability
The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.

Law of Random Numbers
If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal and someone always answers.

Law of the Alibi
If you tell the boss you were late for work because you had a flat tire, the very next morning you will have a flat tire.

Variation Law
If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now (works every time).

Law of the  Bath 
When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone rings.

Law of Close Encounters
The probability of meeting someone you know increases dramatically when you are with someone you don’t want to be seen with.

Law of the Result
When you try to prove to someone that a machine won’t work, it will.

Law of Biomechanics
The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.

Law of the Theater
At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle arrive last.

The Starbucks Law
As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

Murphy’s Law of Lockers
If there are only two people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers.

Law of Physical Surfaces
The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich landing face down on a floor covering are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet/rug.

Law of Logical Argument
Anything is possible if you don’t know what you are talking about.

Brown’s Law of Physical Appearance
If the shoe fits, it’s ugly.

Oliver’s Law of Public Speaking
A closed mouth gathers no feet.

Wilson’s Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy
As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it.

Doctors’ Law
If you don’t feel well, make an appointment to go to the doctor, by the time you get there you’ll feel better. Don’t make an appointment and you’ll stay sick.

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock for Wii

We recently got a Nintendo Wii for the family and with just Wii Fit and Wii Sports, it’s a blast. The simple games and cool controls make it easy to play (and fun). Aside from those two games, the only other one we currently have is Guitar Hero III and I’ll admit, I’m addicted.

Having played bass guitar in a band back in high school—yes, I had dreams of becoming a rock star—this game was something I wanted to play right away. I’m currently doing pretty well on the Easy setting and can’t stop thinking about the game. Seriously, it’s too much fun. It’s got a great list of songs and the Wii version may lack downloadable content, it makes up for it with Wii only features like responsiveness to how you hold the guitar.

I’ve already decided the only thing I want for Christmas is Guitar Hero World Tour – which adds drums and vocals.

Then for my birthday (or shortly after) it will have to be Guitar Hero: Metallica, which I hope supports the drums from World Tour.
