Our Eating Habits!

Jasper here, with a quick post about food! I will refrain from making any extraneous commentary on the current state of affairs, and simply present the evidence!

I believe you can see for yourself in the time-lapse footage below that one of us always eats conservatively, leaving some food in the bowl for later. However, someone else has the rather disagreeable habit of always devouring every last scrap on his plate:


All I'm saying is, if starvation ever occurs, it will not be my fault. So there!

1,772 miles

Last week, D and I drove down to the San Francisco bay area for the Game Control Summit and to see friends. We saw quite a few people at the GC Summit, but also did our best to squeeze in other visits--which is how we ended up having breakfast, dessert, tea, and dinner, pretty much one right after the other, on Saturday.

We went to opening night of Foothill College's production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, which is a great show, and made even more hilarious by my fellow Richter Scale David Mister, who plays William Barfée; had lunch with Pauline and Brian, who just got engaged (she ran a birthday/proposal treasure hunt for him, natch); and I got in-person critiques from various "beta readers" on my novel manuscript.

Finally, on our way home, we stopped at Bubbling Well Pet Memorial Park in Napa to scatter Bayla's ashes. That was the reason we drove instead of flying. I'm glad we did it. Bubbling Well is the same place where Amber was laid to rest, and now our girls are together again.

Nigh of the Tiger

So... I'm an uncle. Well, technically, I was an uncle before--by marriage--but this is the first of the next generation with any of my DNA:

That's baby Kara, born last night to my sister Joy and her husband Jon. Congratulations to them both! And best wishes to little Kara, who is a Valentine's Day baby and a Lunar New Year baby. (Figuring out which of her birthdays will be triple celebrations, as opposed to merely double, is left as an exercise for the reader.)
