“Come to the show where the naked clowns are…tutti-top, tutti-top, tutti-top, top!” Balthazar is a virtuoso.
Road Rash is Like Diaper Rash, but Not as Cute
Carlos brought to my attention his recent exploration of road rash. Oh, Carlos, where can I learn more? Personal experience is often a better teacher than anything else.
The Hot is Here to Stay
Well…that’s it, folks; it’s official. Summer is here and it’s not going to be getting any cooler for a while. Enjoy the longer days, bar-b-q’s, swimming, and sun. The lake still isn’t up to a satisfactory level for those using it recreationally, but at least it’s still here! Balthazar and I swam in it just… Continue reading The Hot is Here to Stay
My son, at nearly 5 years of age, is big into the whole good vs. evil concept. 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
A while back I wrote about getting my water pressure back from the PSI trolls. It turns out, I was too ignorant to know what real water pressure was like and misjudged my victory. So recently I set out to avenge this injustice. I contacted the local water company to have a look. I had… Continue reading HyrdoPower!
Life’s a Beach
I see two things that really remind me I’m having a good beach vacation: I didn’t pack any socks and I don’t know how many times I’ve showered. Time is also of little importance. We haven’t kept track of the time very much except by the heat of the sun. We’re winding up our last… Continue reading Life’s a Beach
The Sleepless vs. the Sleepy
I had an interesting dream last night (in retrospect) in which I awoke to find that my wife was not sleeping next to me. I got up to take my shower and such, and found her getting ready to go to work – very early. This would be unusual for her because her office doesn’t… Continue reading The Sleepless vs. the Sleepy
‘Twas the Night Before Yule
‘Twas the night before Yule, when all ‘cross the heath, not a being was stirring; Pagan, faerie, or beast. Wassail was left out & the alter adorned, to rejoice that the Sun King would soon be reborn. The children lay sleeping by the warmth of the hearth, their dreams filled with visions of belov’d Mother… Continue reading ‘Twas the Night Before Yule
They say April showers bring May flowers. In the case I witnessed this morning, the showers came in the form of snow and May’s flowers were a bit stunted. What kind of bizarre turn of events is this?!? Yesterday, Amy and I worked our booths at the “Art on the Square” festival in Gainesville. It… Continue reading April Showers
Pee Your Bed Much?
When I was very young, I distinctly remember wetting the bed. More importantly, I remember why I wet the bed. In all cases I can recall, there was a very realistic dream in which I rose from bed and stumbled into the bathroom to pee. The realism peaked when the warmth of my own urine… Continue reading Pee Your Bed Much?
