Its been HOW long?

OK, it's official: my new job has officially consumed my life. I think Wisdom Weasel is on indefinite hiatus. However, you can follow some of Country Mouse and my current projects on either (the process of buying then efficiency retro-fitting a 1930s Maine bungalow) or where we post pictures of the offspring.

Additionally, I have been gathering odd combinations of words since June for a secret project, hopefully launching very soon....

I normally drive a nice, mildly zippy regular car: Japanese, nothing too funky or boxy, roomy without being huge, and with enough oomph to make believe I could burn a two-door off the line at the lights.

Said car is currently undergoing a little cosmetic surgery at the Ding King's Casa de Dent Removal and so I'm driving a loaner from the dealership that sold me the car. Behold, said loaner:

Those of you who know me personally will find the idea of me tooling around Maine in the above enormous truck hillarious, I wager. I know I do. I have yet to get the urge to shoot a deer but I did turn up "Glory Days" when it came on the stereo last week.

The main downside of this truck is that it has revealed my reverse Zoolander disability when it comes to driving. No matter how hard I try, I can't turn right into a parking space in this thing.

I get my car back Tuesday.

Good for what ails ya in north east Asia

I grow ever- slacker at this blogging lark. Soon I may have to go into a chrysalis and re-emerge with a new online presence (much like MAS did with his awesome literalist take on Handwashings).

Until then, fancy a brew?

Hot child in the city

A few days back I had occasion to visit New York on work bid'nez. I double up with some visitin' time: thanks Coveting, Unwellness, Listo, Youthlarge, Apes, and Kaci!

My pod

Why I was there- the location of a work function that seemed part 'Land of the Lost', part 'Wall Street', part 'Night at the Roxbury'.


A peregrine falcon (a touch of home) on the New York skyline.

Casa da Apes y Kaci. I want a ship at the end of my street.

Proof I was in Brooklyn being a tourist.

And why not?

The view from Youthlarge and Listo's apartment. Someone buy it from them: they need a second bedroom more than a skyline.

Happy parents (although you can see he has a cold, poor dear)...

.. and awesome infants! Hi Sam and Otis.

News Synergy

Two headlines from the BBC:

Ronald Reagan 'appears to Nancy'


Weekly curry 'may fight dementia'

Mr. Gorbachev, tear off some naan (and get some take away to Nance, there's a love).

Ain't no party like an airbrushed truck party

Sometimes the view from my front door is too wonderful for words:

Later on the A-Team van, KITT, and Magnum's Ferrari stopped by for mai tais.

The art of the headline

From the BBC News England page today:

'Nuns' go on the run for charity
Heroes remembered by canoeists
Two-year-old becomes Mensa member
Prince starts ancient custom walk
May Day frolic on Dorset giant
Dad uses internet to deliver baby
Meerkats 'not very good as pets'
Pagan refuses to leave Stonehenge
Pupils ill after bulb put in soup
Customers watch armed robbery

What an interesting place that England must be.

This is not a baseball blog 23 (I think)

Plex from Yo Gabba Gabba (in middle)

Red Sox co-owner Tom Werner who seemed to have radio ear muffs on all weekend.

This is not a baseball blog #I've forgotten

It wouldn't be baseball season without at least one of these:

Bond villain Hugo Drax from Moonraker

Red Sox 3rd Baseman Mike Lowell


If this is the final nail in the coffin of this season:

Ipswich 3-2 Norwich

: I shall be forced to join the French Foreign Legion, in order to forget ("Forget what? I've forgotten.")

work life balance

I can't believe I missed the grand national on this blog. First time since I started. Bah.
