Picture Day

Not counting the soft launch in August, we are now fully into the second month of school (!) for the Micro-Dragon. It’s going fast and packed with events. For one thing, we’ve already had a Professional Development Day [aside: there are no less than sixteen PD days over the course of the school year – […]

Getting first day of proto-school instructions from The Mom


Can you believe it? It’s the start of another year at proto-school for the Micro-Dragon, and he’s gone from being an Étoile (Star) to an Ourson (bear cub) to a Girafe (giraffe). Let’s just continue using the English spelling of giraffe because it doesn’t trigger the in-line spell check. The parentals are having a little […]

Year of the Sheep - Liam Wallace and the cake kit

Year of the Sheep

Happy Lunar New Year! Today is officially the first day of the Year of the Sheep, which is also known as the Year of the Goat and the Year of the Ram. There’s some ambiguity as to which delicious ruminant it’s related to as 羊 refers to both sheep and goats. Irrespective, this particular cycle […]

The year in review

This is the time of the year when all the news shows legitimate or otherwise devote some programming time to the year in review. I guess we can do that here to see the Micro-Dragon’s year in review, especially as it’s Gregorian New Year’s Eve (not the good one). There is a lot of stuff […]

Where are my Pants Guy

Where are my pants?

Sometimes the jokes just write themselves. There was a yet another sombre Danish cinematic release unleashed upon the world earlier this year espousing a cautionary tale of individualism and libertarianism in a world of Scandinavian orthodoxy called… The LEGO Movie. We won’t give away any of the plot details except to say that there is […]

It’s Labor Day! That means that summer vacation is over for most everyone, and children and adults alike are whining and moaning that it’s back to whatever as of tomorrow. The Micro-Dragon isn’t one of them though, and neither is the Mom. There is this phenomenon called natal philopatry, where animals routinely return to the […]

Elvis Presley entering the army and getting the haircut 1958


Today is the 37th Anniversary of the passing of Elvis Presley. The Patrem sort-of knows this pretty much every year because August 16 is has been a little weird since Elvis came face-to-face with the Universal Oneness. The Micro-Dragon? He tolerates the Patrem’s eclectic musical tastes in the car, but generally doesn’t care too much […]

Those are of course, the opening and ending lyrics to ZZ Top’s “Sharp Dressed Man”, a hit way back in 1983 when the pater was way thinner and actually had hair. Not ZZ Top hair, but hair. There are actually more than a few lyrics missing in-between, but the point of dragging out this now-golden […]

New shoes

Vivid blue

On the left, Nike Zoom Structure in vivid blue with peach accents. On the right, Nike Free 5.0, also in vivid blue but with black accents. The Micro-Dragon *loves* his new pair of Frees and is now capable of putting on his new shoes (he’s been able to take shoes off for quite a while, […]

Knowing your name

That quote actually comes from Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. I have to admit that I have never seen an episode and while I have seen him reprising the titular role on an epside of Top Chef Texas, I generally associate Paul Reubens with his role as Amylin (you can watch how he steals the scene here). Knowing […]
