I think I have a faint grasp now of what that first haircut day must be like for a parent. One difference, your single-digit aged child can’t rip someone’s arm off if they panic and go bonkers.

My fiance loves all these films. She’s definitely a Christmas addict. Here’s a fun clip featuring the Island of Misfit Toys:
This is truly funny and sweet. Just recently someone using a pseudonymous sockpuppet to mock me said I was a self-proclaimed guru. It was a direct slam against the text on my about page. I ignored it because it was clear they simply didn’t read the whole page. Then, today, one of my students and
Fantastic. Go see. Hat tip to my bro Todd.

Another whirlwind day with DJ as wheelman. This time his wife Martha came along, trooper that she is. Eight hours and 266 photos later we crash-landed at their house in Fremont.

This post is dedicated to Diana Forest, who keeps reminding me that we’re all part of the same thing. ‘Drops in the ocean’ I saw this storefront and immediately thought of you. All is one. Burn brightly my loved ones. I’m off to another day of sightseeing and fun. Pictures from day 1 are loaded

I’m a geek. No apologies. Weird stuff gets stuck in my head. The StarTrek: The Next Generation episode “Family” featured Picard and his brother singing a French song together after fighting and then reconciling / drinking. The refrain was all I could remember: Auprès de ma blonde, qu’il fait bon, fait bon, fait bon… SO…
Pluggers. Plan B I’m sure there’s a lot of folks thinking about ‘Plan B’ right about now. 20:20 hindsight isn’t very pleasant when you’re watching the steamroller drive away.
