It appears that recent events at la Casa de Puddin have led us to something of an overabundance of blueberries, without concrete plans for them.

Sometimes, when the days of Winter cling to your life like a determined sloth, refusing to mosey off and leave you with even a chilly, damp Spring deep into the latter weeks of March, well, you have to do something to cultivate family togetherness. That is, you have to do something that doesn’t include the … Continue reading A Movie In 100 Words Or Less: The LEGO Movie
In my free time this month, the project at hand is the first pass of revisions for Project Tennyson. Which means that every night after our hearthen darling children reluctantly embark on their nightly journey off to Dreamland, I huddle over my keyboard and begin nitpicking my words. Often times, this process boils down to … Continue reading One Way To Buckle Under The Pressure Of Revision

What's that gooey pan of deliciousness, you ask? I'll tell you, my friend, it's brownies. A big pan of yummy, just-baked-and-waiting-for-someone-likely-named-Puddin-to-come-embarrass-himself-in-gluttonous-joy, brownies. Err, well, a partial pan of them, anyway. The kids obviously executed their right of first refusal. Still, this guy? This one is all mine. I kidnapped him from his pan buddies and … Continue reading A Gluttonous Reward For Finishing That Thing
