Nice Knocker!

As one of her many wonderful anniversary gifts, Alexa surprised me with a brand new door knocker she knew I admired but had talked myself out of buying:

It’s a wolf! His head swings on a hinge and taps against a brass plate beneath it, thus alerting all the werewolves inside that a visitor has arrived–perhaps a girl in a red-hooded cloak!

Luckiest man alive? Why, yes. Yes, I am.

One Year!

Today, Alexa and I celebrate our first wedding anniversary! It’s hard to believe it’s been a whole year. Time is really flying. But to celebrate, last week I took her to see her favorite musical, Jesus Christ Superstar, on Broadway, and tonight we’re dining at the dim sum place in Chinatown where we ate after the ceremony. In the meantime, here are some pictures from the big day for you to enjoy:

As you can see, there was quite a crowd at our nuptials! Though I don’t know why Darkseid was there. He totally wasn’t invited. Wedding crasher. And he ate like six plates of chicken!

Here we are posing with our good friend Bruce Wayne Batman. He wore his best suit for the occasion. I’m glad he left the Joel Schumacher nipples at home, though.

Did I mention Alexa’s bouquet contained carnivorous pitcher plants? Yeah, I married the right gal. Here’s to many more years, sweetie!

Memorial Day 2012

Today I honor our veterans by wishing for the day when we don’t need soldiers anymore.

Today I honor the fallen by wishing for the day when no one else falls.

Only in New York

Spotted in Greenwich Village.

My favorite part is that the price stickers on the books read, “Imperialist tax included.”
