On Saturday, Helen and I went sledding. We hit the slopes a few minutes before four on a 22-degree, windy afternoon. Helen had been adeptly bundled up by her mom, looking the part of a giggly pink and purple Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. I discovered that gray Tom Asbury-era official Kansas State men’s basketball warmup pants [...]
I’m going to check out “Avatar” in 3D in a little less than an hour; reserving this space for my review of the movie later tonight.

For the last couple of months, my youngest daughter has freaked out over any notion that she’d be left alone. She’s thrown tantrums about being left in the car with me while her mom runs into a store to grab something; she’s had similar fits if I go in and she stays in the car [...]
Forgot to post this drawing on here the other day; I started it back in July or something, and finally sat down to finish it up this weekend. My second sketch of Chibi, lead singer for The Birthday Massacre; check it out at DeviantArt.
