Jacob Paoletta, 1989-2006

Mark wrote an excellent eulogy of Jacob, a local teen who Mark and Jody did wonders for. If you have the time, you might want to hop over and read it.

J&M did everything they could for Jacob, but the main thing they were able to provide was stability, and the knowledge that someone out there besides his dad cared about him. And that is (*has* to be) enough.

Lemony Snickett - the Musical! (not really) (but sorta)

ToneMan - you might already be aware of this, but the Lemony Snickett guy has released an album of songs to go with his delightfully depressing books. (PS- Very Tom Lerher, EverBabe and SuperMark)
Author Daniel Handler (better known as Lemony Snicket) plays accordion in A Tragic Treasury. The album features such dirges as "Scream and Run Away," "This Abyss" and "Smile, No One Cares How You Feel."
There's a link to the NPR show at the top, highly recommended. Best quote? " run run run run run. Or die. Die die die die die die."Thanks to Neil Gaiman for the heads up.

Hey - a non-meme post!

You can follow the above link (for now) to see one of my recent brushes with local celebrities. My company won the McDonald's breakfast break a couple of weeks ago, which means that a local radio host done brung us breakfast. Yay!

(and in case it gets updated with other, less interesting winners, I'll go ahead and post the pic of me & he (... and they?))
