  1. I looked it up after voting and the real answer would have been my fourth choice. I'm awful at this.
  2. What you are thinking of are not "Kinder Surprise" eggs, but "Kinder Joy" eggs. Kinder surprise has a toy inside the chocolate, Kinder joy has a toy and the chocolate separated, but within the same packaging. That way, they can say that the toy is not part of the chocolate, even though they are sold together.
  3. I've had one on my wishlist for a while now.
  4. I've gotten a box from the birth month of my other two kids and was planning on doing it again. Surprisingly (or maybe not considering the lack of sleep in the past two days) the Edmundos never crossed my mind. But now that you say it, it is the only box that makes sense!
  5. After my last concussion I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Hypersomnia, essentially narcolepsy without cataplexy. As my brain healed, so did that issue. So I don't really have a problem falling asleep when I don't want to anymore.
  6. That will be nothing new. We have a 2 year old boy, a 4 year old boy, and a dog already. Edmund is just adding to the madness.
  7. We finally got to bring this little guy home after being born yesterday at 4 in the morning. Those details make for quite the story. Weighing in at 8 lbs. 3 oz., laying 22" tall. Edmund Aelred Nelson.
  8. My current routine is as follows: Monday - Leg Day Squats, Deadlift, Lunges, Leg Raises, Leg Curls, Calf Press, Back Hyperextension Tuesday - Arms/Abs Bicep Curl with EZ-Bar, Dumbbell Tricep Extensions, Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Press, Hanging Leg Raises, Alternate Hammer Curl, Cable Triceps Pushdown, Medicine Ball Russian Twists Wednesday - Rest Thursday - Chest/Shoulders Dumbbell Bench Press, Seated Cable Row, Dumbbell Fly, Lat Pulldowns, Chest Fly Machine, Single Arm Row, Wrist Curls Friday - Run Between 3 and 8 miles depending on how my leg is doing (I've had three surgeries) Every day includes stretching for about 15-20 minutes. Also, there can be bike rides with the kids, walking the dog, mowing the lawn, etc.
  9. I think I was 22. It was my last night in Rome. I went to Fincato and bought a few cigars, one of which happened to be a Cohiba Siglo VI. Wow, what an amazing cigar in an amazing city! I have been hooked ever since.
  10. My parents would be in deep trouble with the schools if I was still in elementary school today. My mom runs a restaurant and would send a different waitress to come pick my up from school every day. Now days, child services would be called immediately.
  11. Well, tonight was pretty bad. I'm already stressed out from hating my job; this certainly didn't make it any better. This morning, I cleaned out my coffee grinder before putting in beans from a new bag (keep in mind this is 3:30 am). I thought I would put the beans in the hopper before putting it back on the grinder. That was stupid as it doesn't have a closed bottom, coffee beans everywhere. Then I put the burr back in upside down, took me 15 minutes to get it out and back on the right way. I guess I really didn't need the eggs I was going to make this morning anyway. I get to work (local delivery truck driver), My trailer is WAY too big (they gave me a 48' when a 36' would have sufficed). Alright, whatever, I go about my day, grumbling to myself about how I hate the warehouse selectors who apparently can't do there job properly, thus making my job harder. Get to the end of my day and go home. Wife has something she had to do tonight, so I am in charge of getting the kids cleaned and put to bed (1 year old and 3 year old). 3 year old poops his pants (hasn't done that in months now), wonderful. I am getting him cleaned up while the 1 year old is trying to get in on the action. I get him cleaned up and put in the tub. Turn to get the 1 year old in the tub and knock him down on his head; so now he is crying. I clean up the kitchen a little while they play in the tub. I go back and wash them up. I start getting the 1 year old ready for bed and while looking for butt cream he runs back to the tub and squirts shampoo all over himself. Fantastic, I get to clean him up again. I get him cleaned up and put his pajamas on before turning my attention to the 3 year old, who at this point has hopped out of the tub and trekked water all the way to his room. So now I get to clean that up too. I get my 3 year old ready for bed and move to clean up their room before putting them to bed. Just as I am about to finish up with their room, they both come running into the room... covered in peanut butter and holding crepes from supper. I'm about having a breakdown at this point. When my wife finally got back, the kitchen was dirtier than when she left, the kids were just as dirty, and I am exhausted and defeated. Not my greatest day.
  12. I guess I am a millennial (I had to look up what dates that encompasses, I've never really paid attention). Did previous generations screw things up? Yes. Does every generation feel that way about the generations that came before them? Also yes. It really comes down to parenting. I worked in my mom's restaurant from the time I was 7 years old. I was a bus boy at that time. I went on to be a dishwasher, host, expediter, cook, waiter, and front of house manager. When I was in high school, my dad made me get a job doing some sort of manual labor during the summer. I decided to work for the parks and recreation department as grounds maintenance. I took care of the baseball and softball fields. Before I graduated and was looking at colleges, my dad took me aside and said, "you can go anywhere you want, except for DSU" (he graduated from DSU). DSU was in the same town I lived in at the time. He told me that I had to leave town and be on my own; that even if I didn't live at home going to DSU, it would be too easy to rely on them for things. So I left town for college. I don't expect anyone to hand me a damn thing. I pay into social security fully expecting that I will never be able to collect it when I retire. I work my butt off to provide for my family and set myself up for retirement. I am at my 3rd position in the company I work for in as many years. When the VP of our area talked to me and asked me what I want/see myself doing, I said I want the CEO's job. That I want to do whatever it takes to get as high up as I can. He sent me to training, and paid for me to move to another location to get a promotion. He told me that he doesn't think I will be happy with only going as far as he has, and that he wants to get me even higher up. They planned for me to work my current position for 3 years for experience and then get moved to management, as I would have worked in essentially every area we operate in. Regardless of what anyone who came before me did/didn't do, I can't change that; what I can do is set myself up to be in the best possible situation in the current environment. There is no use complaining and blaming everyone else, that isn't going to accomplish anything. But working my butt off? That will pay dividends.
  13. Bahaha, Revelstoke root beer?! Revelstoke is what I drank as a broke college student before I was actually of legal drinking age. I revisited one of their offerings last year before singing karaoke... it was awful.
  14. I don't have anything special in the new truck yet, but I pulled out the speakers before I got rid of my car. Hertz Mille MLK 165, Hertz ESK 130, JL 12w3v3 Hertz amp running the Mille's, Alpine amp running the ESK's, Alpine amp running the sub. Alpine head unit.
