It's been a crazy 2 weeks! First we thoroughly enjoyed ScareFest on July 7th, meeting so many creative and downright scary individuals (scary in a good way, of course, not back-alley-get-the-hell-away-from-me scary). (I've posted some pictures on my Hallowe'en blog.) Then I met my brother's 10 month old son, Asher. They visited for 7 days and it was my first 24-hours-a-day experience with a human child. It was scary, like Aack!- Who-is-this-little-munchkin scary and why does he drool on me all the time!? Seriously: spend exactly 3 minutes with a baby who's teething and your shorts and t-shirt will be covered in drool!!! Yick! And I always seemed to get him when he was cranky... my role as an aunt definitely relies on the safety of the camera, where I can capture baby doing cute things without getting slobbered on! (Puppy kisses are SO different, entirely another story!)
See, cute. And me: dry.
I am so the man in this cartoon!!!
And then we went to visit my sister: more on that later.
