I'm not sure I'd ever be excited about going to Omaha, no matter the occasion.

They have a pretty sweet zoo. You know, if you're into smelling animal feces all day.

The new stadium they just built for that is ridiculous.

Omaha is a nice city and I've heard the college world series is an awesome event to attend as a fan.

Check out Sullivan's for a great steak dinner. I know there's one right in Naperville, but at the one in Omaha every single waitress was a 10.

2nd tornado warning of the day.

Don't you like that Knoxville doesn't have tornado sirens? What is this? 1950? I feel like it's ridiculous not to have any warning systems. I didn't even know we were under a tornado warning today.

I dunno, I'm not sure I've ever lived anywhere that has had a tornado siren.

how important is to have things done like a transmission flush or spark plugs replaced when your car passes that recommended mileage point?

Really? Huh... I, nor anyone I've talked to about it, has lived in a place without sirens. I figured it was pretty common.

So...

 

I'm working on the May wallpaper and I discovered something unfortunate.

 

It's a bad idea to do a Google image search for "old baseball glove" even in with moderate filter settings.

 

 

 

 

 

PS don't do this at work if you decide to disregard my warning.

 

You have been warned.

Of course I searched it. I really didn't see anything but old baseball gloves though.

We had a ton of golfball sized hail where I live (the Fort). My car is pretty dented up, but thankfully none of my windows broke. Quite a few people in my apartment complex's parking lot did have windows smashed out, though, including my roommate.

Same for me and you. Windows still in tact.

 

Glad I kept the comprehensive deductible low.

The most recent video of that tornado is unreal. You can hear the person filming it breathing - I'd be completely terrified.
