This photo makes me happy. Not just because it's my son and he's likely the only kid in Northern California having his picture taken with Santa while wearing a Crosby jersey, but will you look at the elf in the middle?

Well Spoken! A pretty gal Mrs Penguin for sure!

Your son looks worried. Probably because the only thing between that old guy to the right's balls is him and a thin layer of spandex. Also Im not saying I will but I probably will jerk off to your wife in the near future. Just fair warning is all.

To be clear, the elf in that picture isn't the current Mrs. Penguin. Although perhaps it could be the future Mrs. Penguin. Regardless, good chance I'm thinking about her the next time I'm doing the current Mrs. Penguin, which will likely be on my birthday next May.

Yeah, I'm living the dream.

"The Bay trade doesn't look like it (a slam dunk winner), but if you take into account the fact that all they lost was eight months of Jason Bay's services, as well as the fact that even the Red Sox look like they won't be able to re-sign him, it's not nearly the loser many people seem to think." - tWTM 11/26/2009

Careful, you're just giving Bucs Dugout more reason to think all we do is insult people. But right back at ya.

Wow, that's awesome. Change in diet, exercise or both? Either way, congrats!

Definitely both. I wouldn't say I'm totally committed to exercise, but I read this great book about overeating and really managed to control my portions. Between that and replacing pretty much every beverage with water or coffee, I only exercise moderately maybe 3 days a week, but it's been enough.

I'm still stupid fat, but I definitely feel more energetic.

Its fun until a couple of years from now they're old enough to punch you in the balls. Then they tend to wear out their welcome.

When I feel like I have to take a massive shit, then waft a giant fart, and I don't have to shit...for a while anyway.

This will be my nephew's first Christmas so of course I'm going over the top with presents for him. I'm wandering around ToysRUs trying to figure out what the hell to get a 11 month old. I must have looked lost so one of the employees asks me if I need help picking something out, how old the kid is, etc. My answer is he's 11 months and give me the toy that makes the most noise imaginable. My sister and brother in law can deal with it. I'll even throw in some extra batteries.

Wait about 3-4 more years then the real fun starts. You get to wander through the action figure aisle buying all the cool GI Joe helicopters and Spiderman shit a child could want. Of course you run across stuff like Ben 10 and ask yourself who the fuck is this little asshole. Even more fun is showing them cool shit like Xmen or Beast Wars that they didn't know about.

Of course there is the down side of that...Legos. I never had any interest in building shit, not as a kid, and certainly not as an adult. My son loves them and of course, he wants me to join in the fun. There is no fun in that for me, unless I'm throwing back my favorite porter or stout, while I encourage him to find the proper shit brown or piss yellow piece to build his latest 1000 piece Lego opus.

You're crazy - Legos are the best! I'd still buy them if they weren't so damn expensive. Erector sets, Lincoln Logs and Tinker Toys were awesome, too.
