Innocence Lost (or Temporarily Misplaced)

After working late last night I headed home, looking forward to seeing the little man. I walked in to find that he and J were sitting about two inches away the TV with the PS2 on, playing (and pretending to play) SSX. Barely got a hello out of ‘em. A while later I was [...]

Skateboarding Is Not A Crime, But Blogging Can Be Hazardous To Your Health

More bad news than good today. Let’s start with the little there is of the latter. The St. Paul City Council has had the good sense to propose making it legal to use skateboards, in-line skates and roller skates on streets and sidewalks. “Right now there are more limits on skating than on carrying [...]

Keep On Dreaming

Despite any aforementioned weirdness, it really was a lovely weekend. And now I have the photos to prove it. Most, but not all, feature the little man. Couldn’t help myself. I’ve put together a little gallery for your enjoyment…and mine.

Expect The Unexpected

It was a memorable memorial day weekend. A fairly relaxing few days with gorgeous weather. But not without its usual, and unusual, ups and downs.unforeseen event the first: On Saturday the little man and I had just come back from the playground. He was settling in for some fingerpainting fun while I popped upstairs…to [...]

A Copy Of A Copy Of A Copy

I was tired. Not tired enough to sleep, but too tired to do anything productive. Just awake enough to consume some easy entertainment. But still. I should have known better. And I probably did, really…but that rarely stops me. Not only had I added “Star Trek: Nemesis” to our already jam-packed Netflix queue, I [...]

The Lowdown

Thanks to Complicated Fun for pointing out this bit of good news: A note from Low, May 2003 “Hello everyone. It is time we addressed the recent situation that many of you are already aware of. It’s unfortunate that this has been played out in a public manner, but so it is. We [...]

The Day After

So that’s it. Buffy, as we know it, is over. I’m still in shock (felt a little awe too, with Joss back at the helm). The ending isn’t going to be all things to all people. I didn’t walk away entirely satisified. But it did make possible many future outcomes. We’d better get a [...]

Which Way To The Sunset

Thoughts that crossed my mind, while eating lunch at my desk today: - Eating with freshly-sealed teeth creates an interesting, though not at all pleasant, sensation. - It’s a good day to be eating soup. I’m glad I whipped up a batch over the weekend…and remembered to pack some for my lunch. - After [...]

It’s Nothing But Turtles, Turtles, Turtles, All The Way Down.

I shall refrain from posting any spoilerish details. Suffice it to say, I enjoyed Reloaded. I have a few criticisms, but still look forward to the final act. That’s the problem with trilogies. I hate cliffhangers. I need closure. Happily I don’t have to wait another four years. And not long after Revolutions comes [...]

Rainy Days And Mondays

What could be a better follow up to another enjoyable, action-packed weekend than…dental work. It’s my first cavity in 15+ years. And only my second one ever. Some people think that my obsessive-compulsive brushing is actually the cause of this cavity, but I just cover my ears and sing “la la la I can’t [...]
