  • Christmas Cheer.

    Sometimes I think I’ve made more cool stuff than I actually have. In particular I thought I made more headers that were Christmas themed. Turns out there’s only one. Still, there are a few cool Christmasy things in my archives: I’ve improved the display of search on my site, still not perfect, but improving. Christmas…


  • Central California has some real beauty.

    Leah and I, as well as the 3 boys drove north to from Moorpark to Burlingame. It’s near the San Francisco Airport. It’s pretty here, but cold. Cold enough for me to look up a quote by Mark Twain. Sadly, the quote is not a true one. Mark Twain never said, “The coldest winter I…


  • Santa Claus! (in March)

    Hey look! Noodling in Brushes.app (when, exactly will I stop noodling in that program? NEVER!!!) has produced a holiday-themed image. Santa Claus! Holidays have been good to me since I was a kid. I loved to make custom greeting cards. Loved it! I got wonderfully positive feedback about them from anyone. I remember meticulously copying…

  • Fairytale of New York, selectively annotated.

    (bold items sung by Kirsty MacColl) (otherwise sung by Shane McGowan) (bold and red by both) (lyrics from pogues.com) On YouTube, a live version, and an incomplete version. It was Christmas Eve babe In the drunk tank An old man said to me “Won’t see another one” And then he sang a song The Rare…


  • Merry Christmas!

    Sure miss my Mom today, but the spirit of joy is alive and well. And it’s snowing like crazy today. Very Christmas-y. Also, footnote for this poster.


  • Back From San Diego

    Had a great time, and we’re wiped out. Here are some vaguely representative photos via a fuzzy phone camera. This is Leah and Me at a very unflattering angle listening to my Uncle Lee sing at a local church service (Lutheran) he sounded great! And here’s the same uncle and my aunt singing on Christmas…

  • Twas The Night Before…

    The following are some notes I took last year on Christmas Day. I guess this may turn into a longer narrative about our wedding. We'll see. Until then, these cryptic notes will have to do. Some comments from now are in italics. It’s now December 25th. I’m writing this in the living room of my…

  • Tree Salesman

    Read Leah’s Christmas Tree Salesman post. Totally true story.

  • Evoltament!

    I want one of these evolt.org special Christmas ornaments for Festivus 2002! Evolt is smurfy.

  • I got a really interesting email…

    I got a really interesting email, well, a FWD from a dear friend – stating that the 12 Days of Christmas song lyrics are actually secret code designed to help kids remember the tenets of Christianity. As with all forwarded material whose content is really interesting, I wondered if it were so. Could it be…

  • Made an acquisition today …

    Made an acquisition today — L.A. Confidential — [amazon] — went to Tower Records, didn’t have any taste for music, but L.A. Confidential is an amazing movie that never fails to delight. I’m a sucker for all things Los Angeles, and that’s a big part of my pleasure at the movie. The meat of the…
