Good Guys with Guns Need Our Help

Another thing that stops a bad guy with a gun? A good guy with a gun and money.

Fuck the puzzle you've brought to distract me, I'm totally gonna take this shit apart.

Let's blow that picture up, shall we? That would be an outlet cover in his hand.

Why yes I did ride it all the way over here for a very specific purpose.

Insanely long story, full of drama and punctuated with much hand gesturing, eye rolling, sighing, and pre-teen angst, ending with:

     "Someone did turn my math book in to the front office, but they [the school administration] didn't know what it [a school issued text book] was and accidentally threw it away."

Poor Jason, karma's a bitch.  As the wife/mother it's actually pretty darn funny.

UPDATE:  We received an email from his teacher.  The above is totally true.  Unfucking believable.

Busted Being Old

Trying very hard not to dance all the while totally lip syncing and enthusiastically head bopping to "Automatic" by the Pointer Sisters as I make my way through Trader Joe's.

I wasn't even embarrassed when I totally made a random guy bust out laughing. I think that's when I added some shoulder.

No way to control it, it's totally automatic.


Up and down, on his little tippy toes, watching the big girls.

Boy Parts

Olive, my self-proclaimed artist daughter, likes to entertain her tablemates by nibbling her food into different shapes. It started innocently enough with graham cracker underpants and has evolved greatly over time.

Tonight at dinner, in a restaurant, she proudly presented the table with a scrotum. Or a boat. Also, a capital D laying on it's tummy. But really, first and foremost, a scrotum.

Thank goodness this still applies. We all tried really hard not to react. The Cracker lost it first, I silently followed, and by the end even the baby was all "funniest thing ever!"

She is LOUD, and she wouldn't let it go, but at least it wasn't "scrotum" she uttered no less than a dozen times.

PS Please, crazy people, stop lecturing the rest of us on using correct anatomical terms with the very young if you aren't going to do it right. When dealing with preschoolers the opposite of penis is not vagina. Girls do not pee out of their vaginas. Seriously. Look it up.

22 Days Straight of Sick

and still going. Over break we watched every clip we could find of BBC's Walk on the Wild Side.

Jason's cube farm has an Allen. And a Steve. It's been difficult.

Homework Classic

Trevor walks 10 units south on the Northern Trail. Then he walks 3 units west, 4 units north, 3 units west, and 6 units north. How much of the trail did Trevor walk?

"Most of the way."
