  • Cold Days: A Novel of the Dresden Files
    Cold Days: A Novel of the Dresden Files
    by Jim Butcher

    Butcher has done it again. After 14 books, the Dresden Files is still my favorite book series. If you’re a fan, you know why you’re a fan. If you’ve never read any of this series, start with book one, Storm Front. This is not one of those series where you can pick and choose which ones you want to read. Well, you could, but it would suck.


Andrea's and My Christmas Lists

After repeated requests from our families, Andrea and I have finally pieced together our Christmas lists.

Andrea's Amazon Wish List can be found here:

My list can be found here:

And for the record, I fully realize that I'm not getting a Nintendo Wii. Still, it never hurts to ask. You never know who has shady, back-door connections at the Toys R Us.

UPDATE (11/30/07):
Dear Santa,
I just talked to my brother, and he would also like a Nintendo Wii. Please have your elves make more of these, as they are nearly impossible to find.

Holden's Christmas List - 2007

Onto Holden's list.

  • Any of the K'nex building sets. Especially the big tubs of pieces. He loves to build stuff with K'nex.
  • He still plays with Attacktix. Hasbro makes Marvel, Star Wars and Transformers versions. The Marvel ones are his favorite, but he likes them all.
  • He also loves the game Heroscape. He has the master game set, but Hasbro has released several expansion sets. These can usually be found on the aisle with the board games.
  • Harder to find, but just as cool are the Heroclix sets and booster packs. Holden is only into the DC (Superman, Batman, etc.) and Marvel (Spider-Man, Hulk, etc.) varieties. You can find these online, at some toy stores and at most comic book stores. I've also seen them at Barnes & Noble and Borders. At the bookstores, they usually keep them behind the counter.
And, of course, Holden's updated Amazon Wish List can be found here:

Emaline's Christmas List - 2007

OK, I've officially had my first request this year for the kids' Christmas lists. Let's start with Emaline this time.

  • For her birthday, Emaline is getting a bear from Build-A-Bear Workshop. I'm sure she would love extra outfits for her bear.
  • She loves anything and everything Littlest Pet Shop. These little guys are currently her favorite toy.

I've updated her Amazon wish list as well. You can find it here:

Illustration Friday: Communication

This week's Illustration Friday theme was communication.

I had this idea during a commercial for Apple's new iPhone. They could name it the iSore, and it would still sell like crazy.
