Lined pants

Earlier in the day: “Do your pants match your shirt?” he asked, continuing, “It’s like Garanimals.”

Indeed. This describes my entire wardrobe.

Related pimping: I’m really digging Lined pants.

Anomalisa"

I really really really like Charlie Kaufman. (Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich.) So I wanted to love this movie.

I didn’t.

That’s not to say it goes without merit, because the stop-motion animation is quite human and in some parts, amazingly so. But the crux of the story feels like something that could be solved in a short.

Looking at faucets is fun for the whole family.

Unrelated: I believe this is part of the Crisco manufacturing complex in St. Bernard.

The flurries were promising, but alas, no real accumulation.

One animal didn’t mind the winter chill, or that I worked from home.

Parkway Auto Wash, good for those days when your car needs a once-over inside and out.

Bonus? The Fun Gum & Candy Center. (I’m serious, there’s some classic stuff here.)

Candy!

Trivia Night 2016

Saturday, February 6, 2016

Trivia Night is a sacred event. Benefitting McGuffey Montessori, this yearly gathering packs the big room at the Community Center up in Oxford. Teams of eight fill tables for lightning rounds of trivia questions, homemade desserts, a silent auction and general conviviality. Oh, and every team is encouraged to have a theme, which usually combines costumes and decor.

This year we chose Bowie. Tom made an electrified centerpiece. Jonathan shaved off his six year beard. Zan hand crafted a Kansai Yamamoto Alladin Sane suit. Wendy made a coat (from scratch) to recreate the Earthling album cover. We had eye patches and button eyes, milk cartons and ill-fitting pleather jackets. Plus also? Jareth from Labyrinth.

It. Was. A. Blast.

Sarah, go back to your room. Play with your toys and your costumes. Forget about the BABY.
