Smackerel: A Winnie the Pooh Short

Lynn Okimura and Jeff Lee of Motion Fiction were challenged to envision Disney's Winnie the Pooh in a new way. So they grabbed a toy Winnie the Pooh toy (and Piglet, too!), and headed out to the woods with a camera. This is what they came up with:

 Fantasy Birth Date League!

(So, I had really hoped to post this before we went to the hospital, but didn't get around to it in time. But I figured, while you wait for pictures of our new delivery, I could post it now anyhoo, to help you bide the time...)

So I had this idea, something fun to do while we expectantly count down the days until Baby Girl's arrive: Fantasy Birth Date League! Basically, Bubby and Jenni's mom and I each get to pick the remaining days on the calendar left until Jenni's official due date, place a marker to represent which day was ours, and whoever gets the right date gets a sweet prize: a $20 iTunes card for me or Marmee, or a medium-sized LEGO™ set for Bubby. (Jenni doesn't get to play as she has a direct communication line with Baby Girl and thusly, would be tempted to cheat.)

Bubby seemed stoked about this idea, so we made ourselves a little calendar, then one-by-one placed our tokens, which we had hand-made out of construction paper and decorate with markers and stuff. Bubby decided to make snowmen, Marmee Christmas Trees, and I went with Dr. Suess' Star-Bellied Sneeches-inspired stars.


Marmee got to go first since she's Jenni's mommy and Jenni is about to be a mommy (again) to a baby girl (for the first time). Bubby was next, then mean, wash, rinse repeat. Marmee picked Christmas day first, then Bubby picked either Christmas Eve or Sunday the 20th.

All the days got picked, and we had pretty good spacing...let's see who wins! Either way, I get to pay and also get a beautiful baby girl out of the deal, so I'm thrilled!


 Merry Christmas, from Tony Hawk!

Merry Christmas, Harry, and Happy Hanukkah, Marv! Totally unexpected, I just received a package in the mail from none other than Tony Hawk, and inside was a Tony Hawk Pterodactyl (complete) skateboard from Birdhouse, his skateboard company. It was a gift to say thanks for helping out with the Tony Hawk Twitter Hunt that happened a couple months back. (I was the hider for Austin, Texas.)

Thanks, Tony and Jerome and crew! It's been awesome getting to be involved, and I hope we can do again soon!

A little thing I work on called Gowalla keeps making a lot of buzz. One of the many nice things you can find about us online these days was a recent shout-out from the fine folks at O'Reilly Media, naming Gowalla the Best App for Urban Social Networking
