The Chaos Of Humans At Play

Far too much to report. Not sure I’m even up for the CliffsNotes version of the weekend, but here goes. Highlights included, but were not limited to: the little man’s kindergarten orientation; a brief power outage; brushes with brainsucking aliens; Dave and Huey-Ling’s big move into their beautiful new/old house (built in 1904); the [...]

“I Really Like Gospel Monsters”

It’s been a strange week. Zophia and I stayed up past our bedtimes to bask in the presence of greatness, in the form of Neko Case. Though our basking was occasionally interuppted by asshats.

My all-time favorite neighbors ever of all time…well, they…they moved away (while Chuck is lucky enough to keep his nice neighbors and have his icky, loud ones move away). I know it wasn’t anything I did, that it was time for them to move on. [...]
