Konnichi wa, my name is Jason!

Jason Beaird

I like to climb on things. Can I have a banana? Eep. Eep. I'm not really a monkey, I just play one on the internet. In real life, I'm a web designeloper. Here on my personal site, I tend to sidestep all things professional for more trivial faire. When I do write or speak about what I actually do for a living, I tend to do so elsewhere. Feel free to drop me a line if you have questions, or use that frighteningly descriptive hyperlink below to learn more.

  • First day of first grade and pre-k! :school_satchel:
  • How about now?
  • Making way for a nice and open, L-shaped kitchen with an island. Can you see it yet?
  • While I was removing the counter, Amy was removing the faux shutters by the front door. Thanks to the newspaper stuffed behind them, we now know that they’ve been hanging there for over 52 years.
  • We also started demo on the kitchen today. After dinner, I took out the counter on that side, so all that’s left are the 3 base cabinets.
  • This is the only part of the house that they care about. Oh hey, does anybody want a big cement fountain?
  • She’s liberated!
  • @bakecaker: “Well, you have the day off, why don’t you bring a few tools to closing so we can get started on some things this afternoon. Me: “K.”
  • We close on this place tomorrow morning, but today: ‪It’s the FINAL WALKTHROUGH!‬ ‪Da na na naaaa‬ ‪Da na na na naaa...‬
  • Lookit! Just lookit dis widdle pea nugget.
  • Happy Slurpee Day!
  • Adelyn’s been home all week and with some help from @bakecaker, knocked out most of this 500pc puzzle today. :hushed:
