The terrible twos

Celebrate! Brevity is 2 years old today. I even baked a cake:

They say we mold our children into our own image, right? (Sadly, that's not my effort. It's a very convenient contribution to the 2 year anniversary of Engadget. Photo pilfered from Slashfood.)

To my readers out there who are parents, I ask your advice. What once was cute in Brevity is now less so. Brevity's at that toddler age now, and a bit of a brat at that. Will I soon become annoyed with Brevity? Is it time to start thinking about a new blog? That way it will all be fresh and new again. I feel like Frances McDormand in Raising Arizona, who kept having new kids when her existing kids were too big to cuddle.

P.S. I'm actually NOT the type of person who would refer to his blog as his baby. I reserve the term for human infants, biological or adopted, or maybe a tiny monkey in a diaper.

55 Fiction Friday will catch up once the taxes are filed.

Story forthcoming. I have ideas and everything.

I had completely forgotten until I saw this post: I had an R2 cake when I was a little kid (must've been 3 or 4). My mom made it for me! I'll have to call her and thank her (very, very belatedly) tomorrow.

Happy blogiversary.

Happy birthday! I've been lurking for a couple of months now and LOVE your site!

I also love the you have a recipe?

APL: Thank you. And call your mother every weekend. Do not tick off Angry Mom!

Kamikaze Camel: Thanks! And good luck filling in at The Film Experience.

Melissa: Thanks for lurking... and de-lurking. Nice to see fellow attorneys not always talking shop.

I know nothing about making an R2 cake, sorry to say. I could try, but I would need some help from George Lucas' Industrial Light and Magic.

Just don't keep photos of your blog in your wallet to show people. It'll bore them...

Mainline Mom said...

Hey Happy Blirthday! or Happy Blogiversary! Whatever.

At any rate, congrats and happy second anniversary!!!
