(1)At Tommy's new job (!!!!!!!!!!!), they gave him 17,982 packets of information and forms, a window parking decal, and an employee security i.d. Oh, and a black pique polo with the company logo on the chest. So the other day he takes out the polo to wear it and finds this tag attached:
Someone got paid to write that? And then they actually printed it onto tags? And then someone affixed said tags to said shirts using itty bitty safety pins?
Well, I guess I've figured out what's wrong with the world, folks. Things are just stupid. Too, too stupid.
Negative Nelly be gone!
My boy is five. Until recently, everything he drew was a car.
The same car.
Basically a lima bean on wheels.
And that was it.
Once, I asked him to draw a fish, and he drew that car. So I asked him to draw a fish driving the car and he drew a smaller car inside the first car and called it a fish.
But then something happened. We turned some kind of corner or he had some sort of epiphany, probably both, and he realized that he can draw ANYTHING HE WANTS TO DRAW JUST BY LOOKING AT IT.
(I don't know what that means, either. Work with me.)
(5)Holy cow, guys. I started writing this FOUR hours ago. See, I keep the laptop on the counter between the kitchen and the dining room. I write or work or check the twitter and the facebook....
Ack! Just c...
Okay for real, I'm just going to finish...
Blergh! See? Holy cow.
(6)Insert segue here...
I'm not super culinarily (how is that not a real word?) talented yet somehow my children and husband have managed to survive without either daily restaurant prepared meals or family dumpster-diving parties. I've been thinking about sharing some of my quick and easy no-campbell's-soup dinnertime recipes for the non-cookery types. Would you guys be interested in something like that?
