Festivus, Digital Nativity, Santa’s Tired Ass and My Oldest Daughther

Yuletide greetings, everyone. The image to the left is the photo which we attached to our Christmas card this year. Hard to believe that next year’s will include another face! Just a quick roundup post to give you links to my favorites of what I’ve written elsewhere during the past two weeks.

I just posted a bit on Festivus over at Babble which might amuse you.

Festivus May Be for The Rest of Us, But It Won’t Fly in My House

And this link will take you to a post which features a one of the coolest versions of the Nativity which I have ever seen. (YouTube video you HAVE to check out if you’ve not already seen it…)

The Nativity Scene Goes Digital

And I wrote a little cynical bit about Santa over at Man of the House which I thought was kinda funny.

How I Learned To Love Santa Again

But the highlight for me was the series of posts I did on my stepdaughter for Babble. One of them got picked up by the Huffington Post which was a really cool thing, I thought. I’ve already linked to it, so I won’t bother linking again, but I will provide you two other links to the other two posts I wrote.

This first one, I understand, is currently being considered by HuffPo. It’s a reaction to a recent New York Times piece which detailed hip new versions of blended families. Turns out the one Lovie and I have is the old fuddy-duddy type. (Give me a break.)

Traditional Step Family Model Out of Favor?

And this one contains one of my favorite Pookie stories ever. Of the three, it’s my personal favorite.

I Already Have A Daughter. Who Do You Think Let Me Marry My Wife?

Happy Holidays, y’all!

He was also referenced by Jezebel one time, but he’s pretty sure they were making fun of him. He and his wife, Caroline, live with their five children and spastic dog in Knoxville, TN. Nothing annoys him more than joke-heavy bios written in the third person, with the possible exception of Corey Feldman.

    Ah, I clicked on that Digital Nativity that you posted last week. I got a kick out of that one :-) Really!? I didn’t know you got on the HufPost! So cool. I’m going to read that right now.

      Continued: That’s a big deal, man! If you get on HuffPost, you’re going to go big quickly! Not, that you’re not already awesome, but it’ll be a tidal wave. I’m very happy for you. :-)

        Keith, it’s fallen off their page by now, but I was, indeed, on the front page of HuffPo Divorce section. when you clicked on my headline, it took you to what i had originally written over at Babble. here’s the link.

        http://blogs.babble.com/strollerderby/2010/12/13/a-blended-family-a-stepdaughter-and-me/

        and while i’m with you…Huffington Post is a big deal, i’m not counting on anything to explode for me. i do hope to get on there a time or two again, though. and my editor at Babble said they really liked that first one, so you never know…

        happy new year!
