KISS* baby

Of course we’ve got to have the cliched baby in the bath photo — ‘cept we’ve given ours a bit of a pop-culture twist!

Emma has recently discovered that she possesses a tongue.

[*Back in my youth group days, I remember hearing that KISS stood for “knights in Satan’s service” — seriously.]

Giving Britney a break

After all the influx of Britney/Anna Nicole “news,” a poignant (and pretty funny) monologue from Craig Ferguson of the Late Late Show:

“For me, comedy should have a certain amount of joy in it. It should be about attacking the powerful — the politicians, the Trumps, the blowhards — going after them. We shouldn’t be attacking the vulnerable.”

Move over, Hallmark!

The inside of a card from one of my Brownies.

I’ll take the sentiments of an earnest 7-year-old over cliched greeting cards anytime!

Rapture Wreaks Havoc On Local Book Club

MARION, IN—Following last week’s rapture, which transported four members of the Millersville Mockingbirds Book Club to heaven in order to be with Jesus Christ, the three remaining members have reportedly been scrambling to maintain a regular Wednesday meeting schedule as well as the usual coffee-and-pastry rotation.

“It’s a shame because I think Shirley had the most stimulating opinions, and I was really looking forward to hearing what she’d have to say about [Fannie Flagg’s Standing In The Rainbow] right before her ascension,” said club member Diane Valinsky Monday. “And we were supposed to meet at Lucas’ house this week, but I guess that’s out now, seeing as the armies of Satan are on the march.”

Valinsky said she and the remaining members were not surprised that the Antichrist turned out to be Mitch Albom, calling his latest fiction effort, For One More Day, “disappointing.”
