Crawl baby crumpet crawl

Saturday, September 30th, 2:00pm pacific time.

Baby crumpet crawls across the floor.

Life for the cats is never the same again.

Watch the video.

San Francisco pt. 2

Massive fudge sundays at Ghirardelli Square!

The (new-ish) Ferry Terminal is a modern marvel. Turning what was once an ugly, industrial waterfront working building (complete with the decrepit Embaracadero Freeway overpass) into a sunny, spacious public market that is booming wiht vibe. It's a food lover's heaven. Part Pike Place Market, part Granville Island. Only knock it's quite pricey, but where else can you find organic chocolate and mouth watering chorizo empanadas next to each other?

Team Crumpet does the city by the bay

Team Crumpet jetted down to SF for the weekend with family (grand-parents, great grand-parents & cousin Abby + her parents Heather & Ivan).

Black turlenecked & hanging out boho style at Cafe Greco in North Beach

The famous Lombard Street (kinda difficult walking down witha stroller)

Baby Crumpet taking her first Cable Car ride.

Later we visited the Cable Car museum. What made it so fascinating is the fact that it's less a museum than an actual working plant where you can see the cables winding its way in & out of the depot and circulate around the city to power the cable cars. Highly recommended for a visit.

Truth on TV?

Something must be wrong

Somebody is speaking the TRUTH on TV

The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl

This is my pal Barry Lyga's book. Just came out - go buy it!

Lynden Fair 2

Picture of ''Corn Brat''

Lynden is most famous as the basis for the movie ''Footloose''. It's also mostly Dutch.

Team Mia went to the fair with Rachel & Gretchen, BTW

Lynden Fair 1

Lynden Fair takes place in Whatcom County, home to most of the farms in Washington state and thus the fair has a distinct rural feel with plenty of animals & fried food. None more potent than the ''Corn Brat''. Basically a corn dog but made with a German bratwurst. It is incredibily probably the greasiest food I've ever tasted in my life.

Going Medieval

It's funny to see George Bush continuing to defend America's torture policy.

According to Bush, without torturing suspects we can't get the information.

I say if we're going medieval why stop there?

Why not also kill the suspect's family, rape their women, burn down their house and create a secret police to snatch people in the middle of the night. This should teach them to not mess with America.

Sometime it's hard to believe we live in the 21st century.

300 trailer scoop

This is from a blogger in Greece - check it out before the movie studio take it down!

Well, the movie studio took it down

But now it's up on iFilms

It looks like Sin City meets Gladiator

Cat likes baby food

Rosemay loves Crumpet's baby food

She is especially fond of Butternut squash w/t corn, but will go after peas and just about anything else

If you look at the picture carefully you can see Rosemary licking the baby food jar.

Who knew?
