Stephen, Now That You’ve Read the Twilight Novels, Can You Sum Them Up In One Sentence?

Vampires and werewolves tell Bella how astoundingly special she is, and Bella in turn faints a lot.

Mind you, I’ve still got a giant chunk of the last novel to go through, and the series as a whole has an OH JOHN RINGO NO vibe that’s only getting worse. We’ll see how I feel at the […]

A House Concert with Eric Peters

Saturday night I had the privilege to see a house concert. Geof hosted Eric Peters at his condo clubhouse and the audience consisted of me and six other people. And Eric. Eric playing some really amazing music.

I don’t know if the concert would have been as amazing with any other singer. Would I have […]

My Bedtime as a Function of My Age

Solomon Stone is Rad

If you’re like me — and I know you are — then you like things that are awesome. And have I got something awesome for you!

This is what Liza does in the morning.

Smurfin’ Smurfs!

Just today I learned about a UNICEF ad starring the Smurfs that aired in Belgum back in 2005. I, er, wouldn’t let any kids watch this.

Easter Prayer

I was asked to pray during our church’s Easter Sunday service this year. I was a bit nervous about it, especially since I wanted to keep the prayer short while still touching on the themes of Easter week, from the darkness of the Friday crucifixion to the wonder of the Sunday resurrection.

Returning from the pulpit […]

Happy Tax Day!

Because, really, everyone knows today is the happiest day of the year. Fellow US residents, now’s your chance to freak out that you waited so long before doing your taxes, or you can be smug about how early you were done.

Sadly, we greatly over-estimated how much we needed to pay and got back huge refunds. […]
