Once Again, Delurk Yourselves

You blog readers can be a skittish bunch.  They silently sneak onto the pages of a blog, ingest, laugh (hopefully) and leave without a trace.  But there is one day a year where readers should feel safe to uncloak themselves and leave a comment.  I speak of Delurking Day.

Last year was a weird time for the blog.  Starting with a not so funny April Fools joke that lead into an incredibly hectic rest of the year, I wasn't able to focus as much attention here, and elsewhere on the interwebs, as I would have liked.  Sadly many of you left, but...a lot of you stayed.  I sincerely thank you for that.  Even though this year looks like another crazy one, I'm going to work to be more productive here.

So help celebrate Delurking Day by leaving a comment below.  Even though you might not comment regularly, it's really good to know you're here.


I will leave you with a conversation between me and the Bean from last night:


The Bean:  So at school I built this awesome Lego thing and I put a guy inside.  The guy had just eyes.

Me:  So he didn't have a head?

The Bean:  He had a head, but he didn't have a mouth.  He had a big helmet like...um...like a marching band hat.  It was all black.

Me:  Was it Darth Vader?

The Bean:  How do you know about Darth Vader?

Me:  Wait, how do YOU know about Darth Vader?

it always makes me smile when a kid thinks nothing really exsists in their parents world.

We need to get your kids, my kids and SFD's kids all in one big room with a bunch of action figures. And video camera.

Wait! How could he NOT know about Darth Vader!?!? Haven't you taught him? *tragedy*

On the Lego and Star Wars note - you should see the AMAZING Lego Ewok keychain I got when we went to Chicago Legoland before Christmas. It was so hard to pick just 1. There are soooo many cool Star Wars keychains...
