I got a kick out of a couple cartoons I saw this week.
and then this one that is showing up everywhere but I saw first on The Boar's Head Tavern as shared by Bill Kinnon...Travis from the BHT captioned it thusly: "Why watchbloggers would never succeed in the 30-day sex challenge"...if you're wondering what a watchblogger is, so was I (apparently it is a "guardian of truth, calling out those who dare deviate from orthodoxy")...but you get the point.
This one hits a little too close to home:
You can read more about the 30-day sex challenge here and here (a church challenged its married folks to have sex daily for thirty days...and non-married folks to abstain). Here is the YouTube they made (a remake of the hilarious original by the Flight of the Conchords).
Tonight we stayed up late to check out the lunar eclipse. The parapro in Elliot's class at school has been telling them about it, so he was excited. Finn was too. Elliot knew it would start at 8:43 PM. We stayed up until about 10:30 and saw it starting to have a reddish tint. Here is a photo I took.

Grandma and Grampa B and Coby came up this weekend, and today we toured several exhibits at the Midland Center for the Arts:
there we learned all about the science of snot, poop, farts, etc. It was a shame that Uncle Kevin missed out on that one.
Timeless Warriors & Relics: 1500 Years of Ancient China
includes a couple life-sized terracotta soldiers. They are two of some 8,000 life-sized warriors, soldiers, and horses uncovered during excavation at the tomb of the first Chinese emperor Qin Shihuang (246-210 BC). It is estimated that it took a million workers to construct the army of figures, each one unique.
Age of Armor from the Higgins Armory Museum
artifacts spanning the classical age of armor, from the late Middle Ages through the Renaissance
I think the boys really enjoyed seeing all of the above.
One thing I've noticed about some of these exhibits (and the Pirates exhibit we saw in Cincinnati last year), is that photography is prohibited. This is annoying to me. I'm sure it's because they want to sell more merchandise in the gift shops.
