I remember when I was a kid my dad took me to a police raid - it was epic for me :)
I have to say, that sounds pretty damn awesome. Best Take Your Kid to Work Day, ever! I'd still gladly go on a ride along, with just a tiny hope of gaining a goofy criminal sidekick, like in Breaking Bad.
Mikko, I've sent an email to the Hotmail account listed on your profile!
Thanks to everyone for sharing your memories - honestly, I had a hard time picking a winner. All of them were great - I share memories of mapping out '3D' dungeons in Shining in the Darkness & Phantasy Star II, gorgeous summer days, and first love (definitely awesome). And well, I always sucked at most sports, movie68.
For the last time, the giftcard was won with Swagbucks, and I've earned two more since it! If you're still searching with Google, who rewards you with nothing but ads, switch to Swagbucks and earn a little something for nothing.
And I have to apologize for my sheer laziness when it comes to blogging lately. I've been gearing up for the fall semester by selling tons of crap on eBay and Craigslist, saving money for the busy semester when I won't be able to work as much. I've also been going on a couple 10 mile bike rides a week, getting into the habit of it, so I can catch the bus at the highway without keeling over on the way. I have lots of topics planned, including my dedication to Jim Henson, I just need to buckle down and stay up later than 10 pm to work on them! I swear, when I'm actually physically active (beyond chasing Booger around the house), I suddenly need twice as much sleep!
Anyway, thanks again to everyone for leaving a comment, reading/skimming my ramblings, and just stopping by! Take care of yourself, and love as much as you can every day!
