A while back I took Amy’s code for creating popup images and turned it into a little WordPress plugin. I’ve been cleaning up the code and making a more robust UI, and now I have released the Simple Popup Images plugin into the wild. Those of you with WordPress blogs and a need for popup […]

One afternoon this past week I was sitting on the couch reading a book while Eli watched Sesame Street. He walked over to me and patted my leg and said, “I’m proud of you, Mom.”
I don’t know if he knows what proud means. I wasn’t shocked that he knew the word. We’ve certainly said, […]
So you might be wondering what I do with my tv time in the summer since nothing is on network tv. Well I watch Project Runway of course. I know it’s a guilty pleasure but I love to see what they make and how they get it done and I love hearing Tim actually give […]
Our friend Geof is doing Blogathon this year. Go check his site and leave him snarky comments so he’ll stay awake.
Seriously, he’s blogging for Blood:Water Mission so after you’re finished pestering him leave some $$$ for a great cause.
I have previously talked about my grandmother’s illness here and here.
I haven’t given an update on my grandmother in a while simply because there hasn’t been much to tell. I visited her while we were in Arkansas both before and after our trip to Chicago but she didn’t seem know who I was. Whether that […]
Wintergreen: When I Wake Up (2006)
They barely have a record, but Wintergreen already has a video. The song features guitarwork reminiscent of The Smiths. However, rather than having mopey-looking kids wandering around London, this video features E.T. and the Atari 2600. The video takes the real story of Atari dumping E.T. cartridges in a landfill […]
Misty’s and my parenting style can best be summarized as, “Enh, let’s not go to too much trouble.” For instance, Eli has a habit of dropping his pacifiers between the crib and the wall, so that they’re incredibly hard to reach. Fortunately, he has many binkies, but after a few days I start running out of pacifiers to give him at night. So the other morning, after I freed him from his crib, I told him, “Eli! Go under your bed and get your binkies!” […]
It’s clear that you come to this blog in order to substitute my own tastes and opinions for yours. (Well, that and cute Eli movies.) So I want to point you towards Jonathan Coulton. He’s a musician and songwriter who’s seeing if he can make a living as a fully independent musician. There’s no label, […]
We are bravely leaping into the world of YouTube and Google Video with this, our first Flash movie of Eli reading a book….
A few weeks ago, Rachel and I got the bright idea to go to a few thrift stores to find some new-to-her furnishings for her new apartment. So at our last stop I found a box that said, “Giant House of Cards.” It looked cool so I bought it for 54Â¢. Turns out it is […]
