Dr. Horrible Makes You Laugh

What do you get when you throw Joss Whedon, Neil Patrick Harris (Doooooogie!), and Nathan Fillion in a room and say “We want funny. Go! GO!”? Some funny television, that’s what. Only, the catch is, this television is only available freely for a limited time on this crazy thing called the Internet.

Go watch Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog now. Then come back here and comment saying “wow, that was actually pretty darn funny” (*cough*commentwhore!*cough*). Alternatively you can come back and comment about how I have a ridiculously warped sense of humor to think anything so inane and childish could be funny. That would work too.

Mary Picture of the Week (PoW) #1

This is the beginning of a new feature on this blog, the Picture of the Week. Those of you who read Kate’s blog back in its heyday will remember that she posted a weekly picture of Simon for his first year. I am going to do the same thing with Mary. Kate will help.

The goal will be to post a new picture from the previous week on Sunday or Monday evening each week. The picture will preferably be taken over the weekend so the spacing between them will be similar, but I’m not going to box myself in if we get a good picture from a different day.

These pictures will be hosted on my site (my mother-in-law’s workplace blocks flickr and she needs to be able to show off her grandbaby), but will be duplicated in a set on Flickr. Anyway, those are the basic rules, and I’m already behind. I give you Week 1’s picture. And yes, you have already seen it. A post with week two’s picture will follow shortly.

Mary and Daddy Smiling for the Camera

The Next Beckham?

Mary has been getting a lot of attention recently, but we’re trying to give Simon his due, too. Having Kate’s parents in town helps tremendously. The kid gets tons of Grandma and Grandpa love. I had a chance to take Simon, his soccer ball, and of course my camera to a nearby field earlier this week.

Look at that form. At 2 years old! That’s sick.
