3000 miles and running

3000 miles and running

Last January I made a pledge to ride 3000 miles by spring. I accomplished my goal by April, 2006 and have put about 8000 miles on my bike since purchasing it last fall. I am going to put another three thousand miles on Cylon before next April, which might be an interesting feat if the […]

I thought another quiz would be a fun companion post to my review of the Fobus E2 Evolution holster. Check out the latest edition of the “Is DrFaulken Packing Heat?” quiz. Most of you did pretty well last time, let’s see how you do this time. There are eight photos in the quiz, none of […]

Fobus E2 Evolution paddle holster

Fobus E2 Evolution paddle holster

My very first holster for my Glock 27 was an Uncle Mike’s inside the waistband holster made out of nylon. It did one job very well: concealment, but failed miserably at another job: comfort. It was tough sitting in a car or up against a chair with a gun jammed inside my pants. It also […]

ImagiNiff game review

ImagiNiff game review

We received the boardgame ImagiNiff from Lady Jaye’s folks as an early Christmas present. There are eight blank spaces around the oval-shaped game board. Players write their names on the dry-erasable surface (marker included), filling in any remaining spaces with names of people everyone knows. We had six people in our game, and put in […]

2006 Thanksgiving Shoot Out results

2006 Thanksgiving Shoot Out results

Well, maybe we’ve started a new tradition at Gibberish: fried turkey and rangetime during the Thanksgiving holiday. Lady Jaye’s mother and father (code-named “Steve” thanks to a misprint in his hometown paper) were down from New York state. We had two friends over from our AD&D group and we all ate a ton of great […]

Meowtacular

Meowtacular

What’s a pistol-packing, AK-47 owning, sociopath to eat in the upcoming zombie apocalypse? Why, Kellogg’s Hello Kitty Meow-Berry PopTarts, of course. Let me tell you, these things are pretty fucking good. Like “omg I hope I’m not susceptible to type II diabetes” good. They have a dark “berry” filling of some kind, with pink frosting, […]

Leaf me alone

Leaf me alone

Lady Jaye and I filled another 70+ 33 gallon bags of leaves yesterday. That brings our two week total to somewhere around 145 bags of leaves. This picture doesn’t do it justice. We have bags lined up all around the base of our deck (which goes the entire length of our house). There are bags […]

Bang on the drums all day long.

Bang on the drums all day long.

One of my sisters has an opera-class voice. She soaked up all the music genes, and while I have a decent sense of rythm, my musical ability pretty much stops there. I used to think I was a badass whistler until I was told I’m off key and flat. 🙂 So, seeing this video of […]
