Happy Birthday Morris!

Wow, Morris is two years old and just had a party with about 14 kids from the neighbourhood and one from Vancouver. And I thought that since I only invited 5 children, it'd be a quiet day...

My boys are so good. Shared toys, ate cake and candy all day with no meltdowns, and were nice and exhausted by bedtime. Me too, or I'd post some new pictures, and they're worth it.

Vuvuzelas and the 2010 World Cup in South Africa

Omigod, there's a giant swarm of killer bees in the stands! In every stadium in South Africa... oh, wait. It's the vuvuzelas.
"I don't know if I'm the only one who found excruciating this constant droning that was going on. They were blowing these trumpet-looking horns and it never ended. It was like you're being attacked by a swarm of locusts for 90 consecutive minutes. It never went away," said ESPN's Mike Greenberg.

Well, I guess some people find them more annoying than I do. There's a Facebook group to ban them, and it's going to have 100,000 members by morning. Sheesh.

That said, Germany's up two goals on Australia and it's not halftime yet. Back to the TV!
