Sometimes Fear is the Appropriate Response

Yesterday I nearly took my son to see the movie 9, as the date was 9/9/9 and he is only 9 years old for a few more days and all. But after re-watching the trailer and reading Ebert’s review I figured it might be just a touch too scary for the lad, despite his love of Corpse Bride. And of all things Tim Burton, really. Instead I plan to preview the movie before he sees it.

Five good and/or just plain weird things:

About the below photo, taken at my house on Labor Day, everyone seems to think Pete looks sorta scary and tough: “and a great portrait of an intimidating dude + popsicle from Helados y Paletas La Chiquita” Perhaps I’ll have to post the photo taken a moment after this, when he was clearly laughing at himself.

Pete, working that popsicle


  1. he does look kind of menacing…in a sexy way :)

    I love your links. I also wonder why I never tried to cash in on my Atheism to watch peoples pets. Someone always thinks of these things before me!

    We took Wesley to watch 9 the day it came out. He’s seven, going to be eight in October. I have to say if I had seen it myself first I’m not sure that I would have taken him. It is pretty intense, but he seemed to do well with it and has been thanking us nonstop for taking him.

    DW - no doubt!

    Heather, nice! I showed Parker the trailer but he was hesitant, thinking it looked too scary. We’ll see.
