My dentist sent me this
Click here for the Flickr.com version.
I told you he was totally high-tech. I got this in the mail to remind me of my next appointment.
Check out that giant brush! It's digital, I bet.

Clark and Barney
Some recaps are up. Last night's How I Met Your Mother was actually the best episode I've seen since "Slap Bet," and that's high praise indeed. I won't ruin the awesome ending for you.
Barney Scores! (And not just in bed) -- Perhaps the best episode of the season with the best ending and the best 20-minute song based on it is unleashed upon an unsuspecting sitcom world. It's all about the brackets. And the youngest-ever TV M.D.
And, oh yeah, Smallville. Some major character's gonna die soon, I can feel it. Please let it be Lana or Lois!
Night Of The Living Lana -- Braniac shows Clark how bad he can be by taking Lana's brain (mind-taking!) and making Kara fly into space with him. Meanwhile Papa Luthor warns that something terrible, worse than the writer's strike, is coming.
That's about it for now. I haven't been sleeping much because my allergies have been so bad, so my brain is kind of much right now. But I will be explaining soon how my seven-month-old ended up with a tattoo, so stay tuned for that.

Monkeys, but not the space kind
I think I'm getting used to this radio thing.
I was on a podcast that has just been posted, "Jumping Monkeys" with Megan Morrone and Leo Laporte, talking about South by Southwest, parenthood, Videogamey and other topics.
They're pros and put me at ease, which always makes these things a lot of fun. The show notes are here. They've had the good taste to also do interviews with people I'm quite fond of including Rob Rummel-Hudson and the guys from Dadlabs.
The other news today was that a big story I'd been working on about high-tech happy hours ran in the Sunday paper on the front of the Life & Arts section.
This was one of those stories that always feels unfinished because it's an ongoing thing and the best you can do is take a snapshot of the moment and look at it as a trend. But two days after the story was due, probably the biggest high-tech happy hour (in terms of attendance) was about to happen, so that made it a bit of a challenge. There's a video that goes with the story, too, and I'm not sure it's easy to find, so here's a separate link for it.
I'm finding lately that I'm writing a lot more personal/work stuff on Twitter and a lot less of it here. I guess it's just a lot easier to shoot off a quick Twitter than to work on a real blog entry (just like it was always easier to shoot off a blog entry than compose long personal journals for these pages and clip art corners and all that).
I miss the writing, though, so I plan to lay off the Twittering a bit and try to do more here than just dumping links to things I'm working on in other places. I have a few Lilly stories to tell, even though for the most part fatherhood is awesome for me and probably boring to hear about for everybody else. I'll try not to bore you and to only tell you the really gross and/or interesting stuff that's happening. Sometimes the gross stuff is the most interesting.
