What's new?

Not much is new with me. Still angry. Still a lawyer. Work has been crazy for months. I've had maybe 5 or 6 work-free days since New Year's. But I'm ready to ease back into the blog thing. I did miss you guys, really.

The Angry family is still rollin' how we roll. Angry Boy, like Muffin Man, is totally obsessed with Star Wars, and Star Wars Legos. My home is littered with little lightsaber pieces. He knows more Spanish than I do now, and he loves to make up songs on the piano.

Angry Little Baby needs a new name, and I'll take suggestions. He's not little (he's a linebacker or a rugby flanker in the making), and he's not a baby anymore (19 months). He loves to watch Sesame Street, and he dances and "sings" along to the Muppet Show theme song.

Not So Angry Husband is now even more not-so-angry, because he's learned Tai Chi.

Come downstairs and say hello

Dorothy moves to click her ruby shoes
Right in tune to "Dark Side of the Moon"
Someone someone could tell me
Where I belong
Be calm
Be brave
It'll be OK

No more messing around and living underground
And New Year's resolutions
By this time next year I won't be here
I turn on turn on MTV
The volume's down
Lips move
They say
It'll be OK

To tell you the truth I've said it before
Tomorrow I start in a new direction
One last time these words from me
I'm never saying them again
And I shut the light
And listen
As my watch unwinds

To tell you the truth I've said it before
Tomorrow I start in a new direction
I know I've been half asleep
I'm never doing that again
I look straight at what's coming ahead
And soon it's gonna change in a new direction
Every night as I'm falling asleep
These words repeated in my head

Voices calling from a yellow road
To come downstairs and say hello
Don't be shy
Just say hello

To tell you the truth I've said it before
Tomorrow I start in a new direction
I know I've been half asleep
I'm never doing that again
I look straight at what's coming ahead
And soon it's gonna change in a new direction
Every night as I'm falling asleep
These words repeated in my head


Hello again.
