See, this is what happens when two nerds get married and have little boys.

5:33 in the morning. Trying to get Will to go back to sleep. Nuff said.

I haven't posted anything lately, so I figured I'd put up a quick update... not that I have much to say:). Life's been pretty smooth-going lately... except for the plumbing incident. Somehow our pipes got clogged 80 feet from the kitchen sink, so we didn't have a kitchen sink for a couple days. It wasn't really that big of a deal, though.
James' Mom is coming in to visit today. Should be fun... maybe I can talk her into going to the Gateway with me. I'd never been there until we went to meet Amanda and Adam there (see the menu picture further down). Everything looks like it's WAAAAAAAAY expensive (except Old Navy), but it looks like it would be pretty fun to explore.
Anyway, that's about it. I'll post some pictures later. So... later!

It runs in the family...

Yes, that is a menu. No, it's not a posed picture. He wanted to hold it; perhaps he wanted to see their selection of fine Gerbers products? (I heard 2007 was an excellent year...)

He also seems to appreciate fine music. After expressing extreme curiosity over my (very excellent) Siberia Icemat headphones, I decided to let him try them on. I think perhaps I should cultivate this music interest; I saw a $60 Paradigm sub that would work rather well!

I've submitted an editorial. To Mugglenet. About Harry Potter.

Seriously, don't laugh! Anyone who knows me well knows how much I like Harry Potter. I was reading along the other day, and I had a pretty good idea... so I wrote it down. And edited and revised and got James to read it and revised some more. And by then the crazy thing was publishable (and over 1200 words long)... so yeah. I win on the nerdality scale. I'll let you guys know if it gets posted... and if it doesn't, well, that's what blogs are for!
It's nice to write again. Beyond this blog, I mean. I used to write fairly often, for all sorts of different reasons, and it's nice to write something that requires a little bit of critical reasoning.

Yes, I already know I'm a nerd.

Word of the Day

Yep, you read that right-- giganti-munga-huge. James just woke up, and this is how he described what he envisions as the pizza of my dreams (with double cheese!).

Book Tag

Well, when I read Cara's post and realized I was it, I realized I had a problem. I happen to be using James' laptop, and I'm sitting right next to a gigantic bookcase. I don't think that's quite the point of the game-- although it could be interesting. What if the nearest book was Plumbing for the Dexterously Impaired or something? Anyway, being Denise, I am reading something at the moment, although nothing as ground breaking as Cara's book. I am reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Here's my contribution:
"She's Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement (gotta love grandiose titles in Harry Potter) and she's the one who will be questioning you."
"Amelia Bones is okay, Harry," said Tonks earnestly. "She's fair, she'll hear you out."

Darn it. Cara, why couldn't you have tagged me the other day? I was reading in the Collected Works of Robert Browning-- that would have made me look cool! Alas:)
Anyway, I believe I'll tag the librarian. You're it, Andrea!
