NY Times, gateway drug to Playboy

Saturday morning Leta woke up at the inhumane hour of six o’clock. We let her talk to herself until about 6:30 and then we started the day with a bottle and a quick check of the NY Times online. I’d been told that the story about — oh God, please forgive me for writing these [...]

Leta, I promise I will pay for ALL of your therapy bills

I did this to her. But, alas, this… THIS is what kids are for.

Welcome to my online shrine to parental self-absorption!

Day of Destruction

Be afraid. Be very, very afraid. Of the puppy. A while ago Jon created a CHUCKACABRA desktop available for download here. It’s pretty awesome.

For dressing Leta in a pair of pants, size 6 months, because she doesn’t have any clean clothes due to the fact that, um, I haven’t done laundry in a week, and um, last night Jon made a comment about “airing our dirty laundry,” and I thought he was referring to the fact that I [...]

I always feel like somebody’s watching me

Yesterday we received a BYU Alumni magazine in the mail with a picture of Utah’s previous governor, Olene Walker, on the cover. Please, please click on her name so that you can see her lovely mug and bask in its heavenly glory. We don’t know how BYU found our address, but I have my suspicions, [...]

By the look on her face I don’t think she appreciated being photographed by a mere civilian

Meet our lovely KUTV Channel 2 News Team! ON THE JOB, NO LESS: Michelle King Mark Koelbel And then here’s the story about my friend Heather Hanson getting attacked by a dog at Danger Park last spring. She’s better now.
