Notes from a stranger

Looks like it's been a little less than a month since I've posted.  No real explanation or excuse.  I think the great dousing of my laptop in juice (the kids knocked a cup of some sort of tropical juice after dinner) corresponded to my absence, but doesn't explain it. 

Assuming my friends will forgive the silence, I'll jump back in.  I've been writing again and my romance novel is coming along as is the framework for a comic.  Went to see a movie recently.  That would be big news in my world if it weren't a kids movie.  I can't really recommend the Spiderwick Chronicles unless you have a child who's read it and/or would be really into it.  To an adult, it was pretty lame.  My daughter assures me that the books (which are more like a series of chapters) are better so we're listening to the first ones on tape.  On her strong recommendation I read Brandon Mull's Fablehaven and enjoyed it. 

Prince of Tennis has ended it's long run.  I'm amused that the big lesson of the last game is (dun, dun, dun) 'Tennis is fun!'  Heh.  My daughter would like you to know that we've also been reading Akuma to Dolce and found it very funny.  Like one of my cool friends, I find myself an unexpected fan of shoujo manga.  Pretty funny since I got into manga via Hellsing

In real world plans, my daughter has a choral concert on May 13th if anyone's interested.  It's a county wide honors chorus and they sound pretty good.  Both kids are doing great and my son's interest in space is taking us to NASA later this month for some kind of kid friendly event.
