Another Shower

Jennifer's friends at the office threw her a surprise baby shower. Tom was invited, but forgot his camera...so all we have are these bad photos from his phone.

There were sandwiches, couscous and a cake. Tom was particularly excited about the brussel sprouts (How come no one else likes brussel sprouts?)

Blizzard of '06

Even pregnant, Jennifer insisted on venturing out into the spledor of the fresh snow after our recent Blizzard.

Click on the image above to see pictures of kid enjoying the snow in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza. A favorite is the kid using a cardboard box for a sled. When complimenting his dad on his ingenuity, he noted that someone else had left it. How very New York...using a leftover cardboard box for fun.

Jennifer recently discovered this annoyingly simple game that seems to be quite engrossing.


The claim that this is used to train US Air Force pilots is dubious, but the game is addictive none the less.

COSTELLO: Thanks. I'm setting up an office in my den and I'm thinking about buying a computer.
COSTELLO: No, the name's Lou.
ABBOTT: Your computer?
COSTELLO: I don't own a computer. I want to buy one.
COSTELLO: I told you, my name's Lou.
ABBOTT: What about Windows?
COSTELLO: Why? Will it get stuffy in here?
ABBOTT: Do you want a computer with Windows?
COSTELLO: I don't know. What will I see when I look at the windows?
ABBOTT: Wallpaper.
