yet another something to tide you over: classic bollywood

my kids' current favorite song of all time:

okay, so, this song is actually on the Ghost World soundtrack, which we have on the ipod in the car...apparently it sounds close enough to the old Neal Hefti Batman theme to the children (who are obsessed with the '60s Adam West Batman) so it is known as The Batman Song and we have to listen to it on the way to school every morning. (the best part of the morning commute is the 3-year-old belting it out in mock Hindi.)

also, i still feel sorry for that poor girl shaking her head through the whole thing.

fat wonderwoman returns

another one for jamar's fat wonderwoman blog.
i could draw fat wonderwoman all day.

(yes i know comic-con ended months ago. i live in wisconsin, okay?)

the great house search

so we are looking for a new house. actually, with the current credit freeze, we are looking for a kind soul to lease us their house for a year and then we will cheerfully buy it.
everything in our price range has ONE glaring thing wrong with it:
cute house, no yard.
cute house, haunted. tiny living room. also no yard.
huge yard, but the house may fall down. sigh.

update: we found one we want to buy! BUT! see below for giant crisis!

ALSO- is there anyone in the Manitowoc area with minor carpentry skillz that will accept payment in artwork and/or a deferred payment plan? we need help to finish a project, and can't list the house till it's done, but we can't pay to HAVE it done till we sell the house. anybody? please? help?

another something to tide you over: the nicholas brothers

i know how you guys enjoy wasting time reading my blog, so here is something even more entertaining for the time being. if you only have time for the ten-second-highlight-version, skip to about 2:30 and hold on to your freakin' hats.

the six-year-old's comment was "that's a really bad idea, because you could get hurt" but then he and his brother proceeded to try to re-enact it while loudly singing the music.

also, seriously, look at how few cuts there are.
