Spilled Drink

Watching the highlights on the tV from yesterdays games and they did a gratuitous shot of the crowd. This girl is so excited about getting on TV she drops her $12 drink! Hilarious!

Tootsie Pop Wrappers - Woot Woot!

I found these yesterday, but need more, so I am on the lookout for banana tootsie pop wrappers. Get the word out and send them to me, please!

Here's the story: What's wrong with 'meep'? It's all in how you say it

I read this and could not believe that this is happening in America. This guy should be tarred, feathered and then fired for having no common sense. Over-reacting to a word. A word he doesn't know the definition. Its a word.

All I gotta say is "MEEP"!

Speaking Jackanese

Jack has taken it upon himself to invent his own words on occasion. He will say something and use a word that no one in the entire world has ever used. At first I thought that I couldn't understand him, and asked him to repeat it, but then the word would change or be modified.

I think he does this because he is learning so many new words, he is experimenting with sounds, words and of course the reaction they get. (How long until he drops the "F-Bomb" I don't know)

I refer to when he is talking like this as speaking "Jackinese", his own little language and words. This way, Kate knows not to ask him a few dozen times to repeat himself so we can understand a word that has no meaning and is being elicited to get a reaction.

Another one of those little things that no one tells you about when you start raising kids.

Man in the Moon

A quick illustration I made for an article on astronomy.

Exploding Pumpkin

Every year I have decided to do something fun with the pumpkin we just used, so I think of inventive ways to get rid of it. This year I decided to use an old M-80 that I have had for a looong time.

Last year we were in South Carolina for Halloween, so I didn't do anything with that pumpkin (since it wasn't mine), but the previous year I ran over that one with my car.

Enjoy the movie.
