Big news in the Skipahsphere! Starting in a few short days the corporate offices of Skipah’s Realm will be relocating to Madison, Indiana. All of my investors have been informed and are 100% behind this decision. If you are from Kentucky or can’t read between the lines, yes this means Miss Madison and I have decided to live together. Negotiations on new office space have been in the works for a few weeks, but the final negotiating hurdle was crossed last week when Sloane literally had the time of her life in Miss Madison’s care while I was at work during the first leg of her Christmas vacation from school.
This is what us old folks used to call “jamming!”
Hammy is in the process of closing down the New Albany location as we speak, or at least he is supposed to be. When I dropped in on him earlier this week he was playing quarter bounce with a poster of Boris Yelstin so I’m not sure how much he is getting completed. I informed him on Christmas day of his new digs and the only thing he could mutter was “Do they have vodka?”
Don’t know who was more relieved Hammy or Santa!
Christmas came and went and there are no complaints from me other than the weather. Granted I’ve had it easy compared to parts of the south. Seriously an EF-4 tornado followed by a blizzard, Indiana’s weather isn’t that crazy! Throw in an earthquake for good measure and that part of the country is officially in the twilight zone! Locally for me it has done nothing but rain followed with a dose of more rain. To quote Kid Rock “I ain’t seen the sunshine in three damn days”, more like a week truthfully.
I think we are about plus three since that image was taken.
I got gourmet gummies!!!!! Winner, winner chicken dinner! I think she’s a keeper!
A quick word to the creators of these seven ounce bags of gelatin nirvana, find me, seek me out, send the company jet, do whatever to contact me. We need to work together like yesterday!
Miss Madison is not short on a sense of humor!
Dating a DIY’er will never get old!
The highlight or low light (weather not withstanding) depending on how you want to look at it was me agreeing to go to Kohl’s the day after Christmas with a full grown woman and a nine year old girl who had money literally going nuclear in her pocket. After what seemed like 20 hours of Chinese water torture, my two favorite girls walked out of there with some new fashion choices and I was looking for an ice pick to jam in my skull. What in the hell was I thinking! Just kidding, seeing those two interact as a cohesive unit and picking on dad truly had me smiling even if I will never understand what it is in the XX chromosome gene pool that it takes 30 minutes to try on two outfits no matter what the age!
Exxxxxxxxxxccccuuuusssseeeee me! I think Sprint offers more coverage than this. Who in the hell buys this for their daughter!
Long time readers know I give Kentuckians a ton of grief on here, and usually it is warranted. This weekend was no different; as a literal mob of teens shut down the biggest mall in Kentucky…you can read about it here. Then there is the Lexington, KY mom that “pimped” her twelve year old daughter out to her boyfriend….you can read about this insanity here. Never mind she already had an incest charge against her and tried to bribe her kid for 80 bucks! I’m not quite sure what the going rate for hookers is in Lexington these days, but geez if you are going to be this sick and grotesque at least pay a fare wage. I expect nothing less than bizarre though, after all they just swore a governor in who openly supported cock fighting. This is my daughter’s new home state and she lives within 30-40 minutes of either of these locales. To say this dad is a tad nervous with her surroundings is a bit of an understatement. Throw in she is around people that evidently flunked the DeVry Technical Institute course on anger management and I get real anxious about Sloane when she isn’t with me!
I’m fairly certain this license plate generates about .26 cents a year for the state!
Plenty of other news to discuss in the near future, still crossing some T’s and dotting some I’s (no it has nothing to do with Miss Madison), but 2016 is already trending upward for yours truly. About it for tonight though I’ve got to reach out to Hammy via the satellite phone to get an update on how things are progressing back in New Albany and Miss Madison and I are currently in heated negotiations over whether or not my prized collection of lava lamps get to make the cut in the new place!
