And We’re Back

Sunday, March 30th, 2008

This is what two days of traveling and three days of con plus putting on a show all in the space of a weekend looks like. We finally got home at 12:05 Monday morning and I can definitely say that I’m way not as young as I used to be. Braaaaaaaains.

Tiny Pie!

Saturday, March 29th, 2008

The Autumn Inn, and by association the Ottoman since it was inside the Autumn Inn, was close enough to consider walking to Smith college the morning after the Smithees. Usually, the morning after isn’t really pretty (especially at Ann Arbor where we are prone to winding up at Pizza House which, coincidentally I’m sure, makes fantastic Long Island Iced Teas) but we failed our booze acquisition roll and went to bed without very late Friday night. Still, 9am guest meet and greet brunch seemed awfully early.

Requiem for a Good Dog

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

We got word that my sister had to put down her pup Juneau last night. Actually, Juneau was about 10 years old but she was still very puppy like. I’m not sure if that’s a basic Lab trait or if she was just one of those happy, enthusiastic dogs but either way, she will be greatly missed.

The Zombies’ Holiday Deux

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

The zombies all took a vote and decided that Easter was the more zombie appropriate holiday to picto-blog. So here they are raised from the dead and wreaking their own brand of zombie havoc on the boo family gathering.

Would the Real St. Patty’s Day Please Stand Up?

Monday, March 17th, 2008

Alas, there will be no Zombie St. Patrick’s Day fun today as promised since we’re out of town on short notice. TheMan’s grandma passed away late last week so we’re zooming up for the funeral and some family time. We’ll be back Wednesday and perhaps the Zombies will come out for a spring brain eating splurge. For now, here’s a quick and dirty Weekend recap.

Lower Michigan Celebrates Pi Day

Friday, March 14th, 2008

Bulbz! Celebratin’ pi day!

It was pretty warm yesterday, warm enough that I eschewed gloves on the way back to the car for fear of spontaneous hand combustion. I think it might have possibly even been 50 on the way home! I know you Floridians are all “50?!?? JESUS CHRIST! Get out the parkas!” while you California wusses are already firing up the furnaces and preparing for the end times. Around here though, 50 is like shorts weather.

Wednesday, March 12th, 2008

I’m feeling a little more “bloggy” than I usually do so today I think I’m going to do a “day in the Work Life” post. Enjoi.
