Creepy

Henry has developed a habit of whispering "Wake Up" with a very sinister intonation. He also talks about ghosts a lot, which makes me think he sees dead people. I wonder if we can make some money off of that?

Today I got creeped out by reading the manual for Rhino and listening to Sirius Classical. They were playing Alban Berg's Chamber Concerto opus #8, which is dissonant and disturbing, like something you hear in a 50's psychological thriller.

Last night I ended up surfing through Korea into Europe until I found this site that offers possibly the most disturbing toy for a child ever, Hieronymous Bosch figurines. Ok, maybe they're not intended for children, but they would be a great birthday gift.

To cap the creepy off, we watched Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events. I think the movie was a work of genius. I wish I'd seen it when I was ten or so.

Hey Nick,

I'm not sure, but I think I might be the only one reading. If true, could you devote more time to Corvallis/Philomath gossip? I'm sorta kidding.
