I’m asking my to-do list to behave itself this week because Sam and I have both been sick for several days now and don’t need it to throw additional tantrums. Needy bugger.
At last! The website and portfolio are updated. Obviously, I’ve put up the most high-profile work and not every mind-numbing thing that keeps me fed. If you’re in the US, pick up an issue of BrainWorld magazine. I’m so so pleased to have a feature in there on how a father’s brain changes with the […]
Oh, wow. I’m pretty stunned. I knew I had readers from all parts of the world, but up until now I didn’t have a concrete way of measuring who’s coming from where. Those hits from Italy– are they actual Italian readers or just random web surfers who’ve hit upon my page while searching for something […]
It’s just as well that I don’t have any major deadlines this week because I’ve managed to fall horrendously sick. I tossed and turned in bed for two hours last night and then decided to throw myself a pity party instead. So I went into my office, turned on some light music, read a few […]
When I was a child, my biggest and most frequent complaint was that I didn’t have enough to do. A book would be read within a few hours of bringing it home, I’d color and paint and draw quite a bit, but being a bit of a loner, I stayed at home most of the […]
I was always a stickler for punctuality, but now more than ever I get really pissed off when someone says they’re going to call and they don’t (or if they’re late). I feel like I somehow, miraculously, manage to feed, change and occupy the kid with toys just enough that I can get through a […]
Jude and I are visiting my parents for the next couple of days. My parents live on the outskirts of the city, so it’s a bit calmer here, less noisy, less busy, and less intense. I lived here for a while a few years ago and absolutely hated it. Where was the life? The people? […]
So I asked my mum to come over, handed off the sleeping baby to her, gave the dog a bone and waited for the phone call. Half an hour later, the baby was grumbling, the dog had finished the bone, and the phone never rang. Sigh.
I was walking the dog this morning when I saw the flowers in bloom and realized that the last of winter is on its way out. The colors pink and yellow and red sprung up everywhere when I wasn’t looking. I was carrying Jude in a sling and he was looking up at the sky, […]
We had a freak rainstorm last night with thunder, lightening, the works. The cat had gone out for his nightly stroll and hadn’t yet returned by the time we went to bed and when it started raining, I realized that he was still out there somewhere, probably frightened, hiding under a car or in some […]
