Video: Jesse goes bowling, injures self; Dirk’s “statistical” strike

Okay, we admit it: Dirk and I aren’t the best bowlers. Between Dirk’s innovative “no thumb” grip and my wounded-rhinosaurus approach… yeah, we kinda suck. But when my flag football captain organized a bowling night with a couple of the other teams, we were all in! Check out the videos below. (By the way, Dirk’s “Two statisticians… we got it!” is a reference to the fact that if you take the average of his two balls, he actually got a strike. Or something like that.)

Classical Caber: Singing in the Shower (Video)

I woke up this morning to the sound of my hubby Dirk Caber singing in the shower, so I quickly grabbed my iPhone and filmed a bit of it. He tells me it was a snippet from the low bass line in the Gloria from Missa Conceptio Tua by Pierre de la Rue. I’m not sure exactly what that means, but here’s a professional recording of Dirk singing it with the Chicago-based group Schola Antiqua. (You can read a review of the performance here.)

VIDEO: Witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational… ceiling lamp

Dirk and I braved the Black Friday crowds at IKEA to buy some toys for our nieces and nephews for Christmas, and we spotted this. Yeah, it’s just some cheap plastic thing, but we’ve needed a ceiling lamp in our living room forever… and the geek in me just couldn’t resist.
