humpback flukes off pirate's cove

I took a great many photos of our trip to Alaska, but only one of them can be the best. I know without looking: it's this one.

Big Sunday is the largest regional community service event in the country. Participating for the L.A. Derby Dolls, the kid and I went to the South Los Angeles Animal Care Center to write biographies and draw signs to make the dogs and cats awaiting adoption even harder for visitors to resist. After a tour of the kennels, we got down to business. Click through to the gallery for the rest.

your participation is required

Now soliciting nominations for the best movie closing lines ever. We will accept extremely limited dialogue on a case-by-case basis, but it has to be a spoken line, not a graphic. Inclusion in the bracket will be arbitrary and at my high-handed discretion. Comments are screened so as not to get anyone het up about favorites too early in the game.

Ready? GO!

Left the bout early the night before in order to finish knitting the fluffy-cuffed Fight Crew shrug. How about that: sometimes hard work pays off.

apropos seeger

Today as we ate lunch with Michael Chiklis [well, ate lunch next to, at any rate], the kid favored me with the following filk:

This lunch is your lunch
This lunch is my lunch
I eat it over there
And I eat it over there
I dooooon't like
Spiii-iii-nach
This lunch was made for you and me


I related the story to dogofthefuture tonight and the kid tacked on a coda:

This lunch is your lunch
This lunch is my lunch
From California
To the mac & cheese place
That's what I wanted
To have for diii-iiiin-ner
But Daddy decided tacos


There were a couple more verses in-between, but I was trying too hard not to interrupt him by crying with laughter to note them down. When someday they write the book, those verses will be lost to history.

the audacity of hope

When people talk about the death of civility and ascendancy of snark, I just watch the audtion episodes of 'American Idol.' If these people weren't surrounded by folks who are too polite to laugh in their collective face, we wouldn't be seeing them today. And maybe that's a better sign than any of us thought.

endless love for this man (and his daft knitted cap)



"'Nobody living can ever stop me.' I gotta give Pete Seeger infinity weepy LOLs, because does he kill that lyric very hard? LOL, the man is eighty-nine years old and he makes Ghostface Killah sound like Pee-wee Herman. Eighty-nine years old . . . still keeping EVERYONE on notice."
