morning photo shoot

I’m planning on getting up early tomorrow morning (7ish) and going out to take some photographs. I’ll leave around 8:30am and should be home by noon-ish.

If you’re interested in coming along, leave a comment, send an email, send a text message or call me sometime before then.

plastic jesus and other Christmas gifts

Thanks to Matthew Baldwin of The Morning News, those of us who have diligently waited until the last minute to buy Christmas gifts this holiday season now have a list of last minute gift ideas to choose from.

This year, give the gift of grease with a $5 Denny’s Gift Certificate! It’s the perfect way to say, ‘Even though over 300 days have passed since the last holiday season, I am no longer even pretending that I pay any attention whatsoever to your personality or hobbies or interests, so rather than spend even the slight amount of effort it would take for me to guess what small token of my affection you might appreciate, I’m just going to get you a proscribed portion of food, something that you are biologically required to want.’ Happy Holidays!

I can’t think of a better gift for Justin than the book entitled, “How to Good-Bye Depression: If you Constrict Anus 100 Times Everyday. Malarkey? or Effective Way?“. My Jessica would just love this Freud action figure. And personally, I’d really like Jesus Bobblehead on my dashboard.

For some reason I have a song stuck in my head now.

I don’t care if it rains or freezes
‘Long as I got my Plastic Jesus
Riding on the dashboard of my car.

Through my trials and tribulations
And my travels through the nations
With my Plastic Jesus I’ll go far.

When I’m in a traffic jam
He don’t care if I say “damn”
I can let all my curses roll

Plastic Jesus doesn’t hear
‘Cause he has a plastic ear
The man who invented plastic saved my soul.
