Elves on strike strike out

I'm sure somebody somewhere thought this was a good idea, but like so many things, it was an idea that should have been quickly forgotten.  I'm talking, of course, about Elf Bowling: The Movie, a computer-generated holiday film from the makers of, well, Elf Bowling: The Movie.  It involves the "real story of Santa" and his brother Dingle (yep, Dingle Kringle), pirates (yes, pirates) who bumble their way to the north pole, and hilarity ensues.  See, eventually, the elves go on strike, Dingle takes charge, and it's up to Santa to, yep, you guessed it, save Christmas.

A great post is written here

Just when I was lamenting the lack of content in Metamorpheus, I run across this today courtesy the Washington Times. Somebody fell asleep at the wheel on this one.

A metamorphical update

Don't mind this post, its just a sad commentary on my inability to maintain Metamorpheus in anything even remotely resembling a timely manner.

A meal to remember

First, I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  I've been eating turkey regularly for the past week, but I finally had to throw the rest out because it was dried out.  At least I got one final turkey salad sandwich out of it.  Yum.

Sons, fathers and religion, part 2

I've been kind of dreading coming back to the blog. I don't know what to say anymore, and the longer I'm away, the harder it is to come back. As much as I love doing this, I'd barely gotten started, and suddenly, it's like the thrill is gone.

Trainz: Announcing the CSI

In honor of my Dad, I've gone back to Trainz after a long hiatus and started an earnest effort at building a layout.  I'm calling it the Central & Southern Indiana Railroad.

Would you like fries with that?

A lot has been happening this week, and I might get around to posting about it later, but in the meantime I wanted to shared an experience we had last night.

And they call it puppy love

My wife took these photos of our dog, and I couldn't not post them. Isn't she just a cutie-pie?!

Zoo Tycoon 2: First zoo expansion

It was a long week peppered with little sleep, so I thought I'd play a little Zoo Tycoon 2 tonight. I did go back into my Bloggersville City Zoo, but I really didn't do much. It really wasn't even worth a screenshot.
