Zoe, Chestburster

When we saw Zoe, the way her onesie bunched up looked like she had an alien trying to escape from her chest.

Nice to know that we aren't the only warped parents out there.

Bars and Babies

A couple of weeks ago my folks were in town and stayed with our sweet kid so we could have a night out. The missus wanted to go to Dave and Buster's. I was given first choice
and chose the Roll-n Bar. We hit the bar on a Sunday afternoon. It was smaller then we expected, wonderfully divey with wood-paneled walls. The bar itself had 4 people chatting with the bartender. Almost ever surface has names in chalk, patrons of the bar. The bartender came over to us and asked what we wanted. I had a Southern-Comfort Manhattan, and eventually a second. He poured a nice drink and told us about the owner of the bar, notoriously cheap, the bar shows it. The men's bathroom had a electric hand dryer directly above the sink, slightly concerning with the proximity of electricity to water.

Weeks ago, we went to a friend's favorite bar in the Montrose. It was the first time Zoe went to a bar and what a special trip it was. We all sat outside. By the end of our drinking, a table behind us lit up a pot pipe and started toking up. My spring allergies kept me from noticing and I left unknowing to the what took place. Our friend later commented that the smokers at the bar usually wait for the sun to set before partaking the mary-jane.

Baby's first contact high.

"90 Seconds..." on Flickr Video

Flickr now is offering video.

Having heard rumors, I originally planned on just putting up baby movies for the grandparents. Movies are limited to 90 seconds at a time. Pretty restrictive, but I think I'd like to run with making some roadside attraction/assorted oddness flicks. The short time frame would work for easily-digestible movies that won't be a major time-suck. The trick will be being concise and interesting. Lastly, short movies would make for manageable projects.

Got some ideas a brewing, hope to start making some magic in the next few weeks.

Love My Wife, Love My Life

Emailed the missus with a great two-headed teddy bear based on a character from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Her response?

"Dude, AWESOME!!! Maybe we should start reading her Hitchhiker's Guide now, to get her started early?"

Plus, the great kid slept for nine hours last night (has been averaging six to seven.) At a hair over 3 month old, I think that is pretty good . My whole family is indeed awesome!

Weekend Review: Success! Fail!

The weekend in a nutshell:

Bayou City Arts Fest - VIP parking rules! Wish I could fool people more of the time. The fest?... larger than expected, higher quality. Thought we would see more leather wallets with fringe. Highlight, Andrew Carson's cool wind sculptures. Better and more beautiful than 90% of similar things out there.

Aurora Picture Show - Fail! Sold out. (thanks Bill for the heads up) Arrived at 2pm in hopes of signing the list of people waiting for no-shows. 30 other people had the same idea. Left dejected. A search online show nary a peep about the Indiana Jones remake. That being the case, somebody blog about it already.

Need to be better informed, must spend all waking hours online instead of spending time with wife and child.
