It's like Christmas. And, Pubert


I ordered three albums by Sondre Lerche the other day. I can't wait for them to arrive in the mail. It's going to be like Christmas!

[Side ephiphany]: being middle-aged with kids and already having everything you want means that the only things you get for Christmas are things you buy for yourself. It's a good thing, too, because authentic #9 John Beck Dolphins jerseys don't just show up in your closet by themselves.

Also, just now I just found an image of Lurch from The Addams Family that I'm using for this post, and in the process of finding the image I learned something quite fascinating. I learned that in the original Addams Family series it was concepted that Gomez and Morticia would have a third child - a baby with a moustache, no less - and that child would be named Pubert. Having learned that fact, I am at this very moment the happiest I have been in months (with the exception, of course, of the moment immediately following the 4th and 18 play).

That's funny... Pubert... :)

I don't know if you ever even go to my blog, but if you do did you ever read about the rude librarian to gave me trouble because I wanted to read Jude? I'm still not done...not because I'm not bright, but I'm just not good at making time. I'm about done, though...

If you like Pubert, you'll love that one time we named a kid that lived with us at Snow College "Pubraham Lincoln".

I have a funny brother! Your writing makes me laugh. I would like to know which, of your children, you plan to nickname Pubert! Thanks for the giggle in my day!
