Drake Attack

Here's an episode of me trying to watch TV....


My needed Zen moment

Maybe someone else needed one, too.

Death Magnetic

While others relaxed watching the Super Bowl this Sunday (I really have no idea who was even playing anyway), Tülay and I were headbanging at the Metallica concert!
Death Magnetic TourMetallica has been around a long time so there was quite a mix of people.  We saw several fathers taking their sons...Drake's not old enough.  We even saw some kids around five years old.  I know we're old and uncool, but we had to wear earplugs through the opening bands and some of the Metallica songs.

On occasion, our little guy manages to scratch himself and it's time for a manicure.  I've gone through this ritual a few times and have so far kept it a blood free affair for both Drake and his father.  Today, however, I was feeling a little ambitious and decided to go all out and give him a pedicure while I was at it.  What a headache!  At least I can control his hands to some extent with a firm grip, but his leg are a different matter.  Lining up the clippers on such a tiny target takes forever and then the instant before I clip the whole foot gets yanked away.

A few times, I noticed his toes were white because I was holding them too firmly.  So I had to strike a balance and wait for a bit and strike like a snake when he was calm (close to never). Short of a sedative, I really don't know how to improve this process and his legs are only going to get stronger.

The Perfect Escape

A drakesitter was found (thank you Jay and Semra!) and we took advantage of the last nice night's weather for a true movie outing.  We've been stuck at home watching the medium to low-budget mush on Showtime and HBO for around five months now.  It was so nice to get out and watch an alternative movie.  Yeah, I know there are more glamorous things to do in New York City, but it was Monday night and the slush started today.  In fact there are huge snowflakes coming down, maybe 1 1/2 across.  It's weird.

Aww, how cute!

Happy Halloween!

I'm sure everyone was wondering what we were up to for Halloween. We were off to Richard and Terrie's 2nd Annual Halloween Party. This time, you could hardly find a person without a costume. Impressive work, guys. Tülay and I worked hard on ours....

And a closeup so you can admire my makeup. =)

And here is part of the crowd we could capture. Yes, I was in character all night. Why not?! =)
