No blog update today 'cause I'm surprising Rachel...

"Legally Blonde" Broadway musical for the better part of six months
now. It sets my teeth on edge and blurs my vision with a red haze.

her friend's dad (who will be joining us, and whose idea this was), I

Kinda late for Father's Day, yeah, but I just discovered your blog. I just thought it deserved a comment. I knew parents who hated stuff their kids liked and would move mountains to share the experience with them.

You ARE a great father. Mine did this a lot when I was a kid, and it's the stuff that remains in your heart as the years pass. I hope you guys enjoyed it.
