What Happens When You Have Too Much Free Time






I'm almost positive the only reason my daughters told you that Captain America story was to prevent me from using it in a blog post.

Hints to Extra Lives in Pack Man




Perhaps it's best after all that my children don't appreciate my occasional fantasies about manipulating the scientific constants of the Universe.  Then when I'm elected Supreme Being it will just be that much more of a surprise for them.

The Auto Packed




The title of today's post is actually a HILARIOUS pun based on a 50-year-old trade agreement between the US and Canada dealing with the production and exporting of cars.

So you can understand why I just knew it would be a ripe source for comedy.

Faulty Parallels






Incidentally, this has nothing to do with me.  Stick Me is simply asking the question about the comic blog he draws in his cartoon world, which people can bring up on smart TVs while they're watching Netflix.  

It's called Awful Pictures-in-Pictures.

It Was Almost Diffimpult


There is some debate in our house as to whether the noun form, "simplifficulty" rhymes with difficulty or with simplify.

Thoughts on a postcard, please.

Spice Girl





I've been asked to inform you of an important problem with today's blog post:  we do not, in fact, in our house, use a pepper mill.  We actually use a pepper BUNNY.

That is all.

Web-based Programming



I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce "ribbon," the latest Identifying Mark of a Family Member (IMFM).  It is a forest-green ribbon from Harrod's in London to which Older Daughter seems inordinately attached.

Consider yourself deeply edified.

Tattwo








This is absolutely, true, by the way.  I went with him to the parlor when he had this done.

Armful Pictures...and a Few Words

A funny thing happened on the way to my blog today...






At some point, I may talk about why this happened, as my rather impressive Older Daughter has done on her blog.

But for now, I'll simply say it seemed like the thing to do.  And I like it.

With thanks to the Older Daughter and to Big Joe & Sons in Mohegan Lake.

Existential Blues (& Blacks & Reds & Grays, also with some Pink, Purple & Green)






How stupid is it that this guy doesn't know he's a cartoon?  Does he not see that his words come out in speech bubbles?  What a dope.

This said, I'd love to know who exactly keeps writing these ridiculous remarks at the end of each of my blog posts...

A Word With My Wife




I know sometimes what's going on in situations like this is that I know the word, but I'm messing with my wife.  But in this instance, for some unfathomable reason, I really just can't remember the strahz-bahz thing.  

I think it's that recent blow to the head I suffered.  Or else the recent blow to the head I suffered.

Milk Car-toons




Milkbelly is also the name of the fictional blues musician who plays songs in my head.

True story.

Sidekick Powers





It's sort of like I have an telepathic connection but only to the parts of people's brains that annoy them.  This would explain a lot about my relationships over the years.

Is My Face Flushed?





I suppose there's a certain logic in making a crown out of a piece of a throne...
