All of you will surely recognize the man on the left. His biblical image comes at you in all of its hair and puffy-shirtness like a thunder clap. Yanni stands as the hairiest, women-loving man I know [of]…though Hugh Jackman must be at the top of this game too! And on his right is the… Continue reading Lost and Found: 1 Grecian ‘Stache
I have heard this one before. It was once said that bumblebees were scientifically incapable of flight. Today’s future-potential piece of mythical folklore is that the pterodactyl was also incapable of flight. Katsufumi Sato has collected and assessed the data only to reveal nature’s secret to flight: “…the largest animal capable of soaring across the… Continue reading Ill-Conceived Science

@thesneeze I do love the annual visit from the Tree Brain Fairy. It used to leave quarters. What happened? # Powered by Twitter Tools.

@MEaves I didn’t see you in the DragonCon parade! What happened to you guys? Balthazar *loved* it anyway. # @mdotadotx Got busted today by the wife for wearing linen after Labor Day. Maybe my wool fedora will make up for it. # Powered by Twitter Tools.

@DinoRubble That volleyball match was awesome! 108 consecutive wins… # @HamWithCam One donut hole? I had four rings, myself. Could have made it an Olympic breakfast if it weren’t for the bowl of cereal first! # Congrats to a friend of mine. He’s back at work days after his first morotcycle crash. Having trouble moving… Continue reading Twitter Updates for 2008-08-21

Top 5: Things You Wanted to Know About Me

For lack of better alternatives, I bring to… Continue reading Top 5: Things You Wanted to Know About Me

He loves superheroes, Star Wars, and nearly every incarnation of fictional character one can imagine serving one of the aforementioned roles; good or evil. We played “superheroes” most of the day, Sunday. I was “The Oxidizer,” or “Flame… Continue reading Reading Boy
Gävlebocken (The Gävle Goat)
In a small city north of Stockholm, 5,000 onlookers welcome a giant Goat as it is unveiled each year around Yule. For several decades now, the Gävle Goat has made a historical mark in Gävle history as it is either sacrificed or spared during the Winter. In 1969 the goat was burned on New Year’s… Continue reading Gävlebocken (The Gävle Goat)
The Lone Ranger
We have now officially fallen to a distant 2nd for Balthazar’s adoration. My mother gave him the gift of a lifetime – somewhat inadvertently – yesterday. She had been at a dog party where the requirement was to dress up your animals for Halloween. Among hers, she had some cowboy and villain paraphernalia that fell… Continue reading The Lone Ranger
