Bismick

Ian has invented the word “Bismick” and uses it in enough situations that we have had no idea what it meant… until now.

He was playing with a finger drawing program on my phone, and drew the picture you see here. When I asked him what the picture was, he told me it was a Bismick. So here you have it: the first known artist’s conception of a Bismick.

The Not-So-Itsy Spider

The Not-So-Itsy Spider walked through our garage;
Down came the penny I dropped, which it pounced on like a rabid, ravenous wolf.
Then I squashed it with my foot.
The end.

More Than Meets the Eye

Shooting for Transformers 3 is taking place in the street across the river from my building this week. The street itself looks like a war zone, with tons of rubble, smashed cars, and a burned out Vienna Beef street vendor cart. The crane with the blue box in the center of the last photo is the center of the action right now. They put a guy up on the box, raise it in the air, then he flips off while sparks fly out of the box. It looks really cheesy – makes you appreciate how much work goes into these movies post-shooting.

“Ketchup”

We’re in Naperville today doing a little shopping, and we stopped to have lunch at Noodles & Co. Ian just told us he wanted chachup (Ianese for ketchup) and reached for this bottle. No, Ian, that is most definitely NOT chachup.
