What-What?! Week of January 21st

This week has been pretty uneventful...  We've mostly just kept the house going, gone to the library, that kind of thing.

My boss did get me a giant Lego set, which I spent several hours yesterday putting together:
It's a Star Wars Heavy Assault Walker, and has over 1300 pieces.  The finished thing is gigantic -- over a foot tall!  Osric is playing with it now, and both of the boys helped me build it.

Like I said, we've been to the library -- I very much like our new little library.  Checked out a lot of comic books -- My Little Pony and Ranma 1/2.  The MLP comics are generally pretty entertaining, though sometimes the writing can be a little off.

In terms of other entertainment, though, I recently found an artist who makes comic strips involving birds:

I like the realistic style of art, and the very bird-like poses and expressions... Like the little cockatiel face here:

What-What?! Week of January 14th

 I am late posting this, because I have spent waaaaay too much time working this past week.  Literally up until 2 or 3 in the morning twice, as well as all day yesterday, and part of today already, because we're moving to our new server architecture, and it's complicated.  I think we're about good, though, which makes me super happy.  I'm on call this week so I'm stuck for this week, but my boss has promised me comp time, so I'll be taking some time off the next week.

This past week, we got a package from my middle sister with Christmas presents! ^_^

Excited to open!

She got the kids these adorable hoods...

A fox and two dinosaurs.  Osric was running through the house with his hood and a cape on, yelling about being DINO BOY.  We just recently saw the episode of The Tick with Dinosaur Neil, so that helps.

She got me some adorable squirrel socks.

And the husband some Tintin comics and some artwork of his character from the My Little Pony roleplaying game we've been playing (I don't seem to have a good picture of this, though...)
