Developments at our house, Vol. 14

Here are some of the latest developments around these parts:

1. According to a repeated bulletin my 2-year-old daughter M- broadcast through the car recently, if I liked it, then I should have put a ring on it. Oh-oh-ohhh, oh-oh-oh. Oh-oh-ohhh, oh-oh-oh.

I liked it better when she just sat back there spontaneously singing, "Far away, far away," over and over again.

2. I found a piece of note paper on the floor of the library with the word FART written on it in giant block letters, carefully filled in over the course of what must have been several very industrious minutes. I wonder what it means that I just might have found this more amusing than its presumably prepubescent author intended. You gotta admire dedication to a bit.

3. According to Google Analytics, Ft. Worth, Texas was the first city willing to send one of its favorite sons to my "robot ladies" post, after he accurately invoked the password, "i want to screw a robot".

4. When the lady at the library was checking out my (free!) movies the other day, she saw I was getting Hot Fuzz and enthusiastically told me that it was "a really funny movie". She then preceded to scan my other selection, Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay, and ominously passed on the chance to continue our conversation.

5. I'd like to note that this is yet another list post that does not have 5 or 10 items in it. That's progress, my friends.

One step forward, two steps back. Blackhawks? Meh.

Kat said...

If you had left out the 5. I may have fainted from shock.

Mama Dawg said...

At least the word was spelled correctly. Gotta give the twerp that much at least.

Not to link-drop, but...

#2 makes me think you might not have read my graffiti post? Either that, or my husband has been set loose in your library.

I think it's great that your daughter is learning these things early. The font of wisdom that is Beyonce tells it like it is.

Ali said...

Well, at least she's not doing the choreography...yet:)

It might be a schizophrenic tendency in me, but whenever I find a random note lying on floor, I assume they are messages specifically to me from God.

I think The Big Guy Upstairs is trying to tell you something.

Miss Grace said...

I'll refrain from counting the number of items. Because that would be rude. And contradictory.

CaraBee said...

So how was Harold and Kumar?

Allison said...

No. 1 made my day! Give me five minutes with her and I will make her a youtube sensation!

Laski said...

I so dig your movie choices. Seriously . . .

And, I can't even discuss #3. I'm pretty sure it would be against my religion . . .

laughing out loud at the 'you shoulda putta ring on it' part

Chris M. said...

So, in installing bullet #5, you have a list with 5 items. Therefore, you have not made progress. Or at least you've made half-progress.

I just need to work on my grammer and we'll both be on our way.

To defend this comedian's honor (above), and to prevent the spread of misinformation, I feel compelled to point out that Chris misspelled "grammar" on purpose as a callback to a pet peeve of mine.

He's not in need of Federal Aid to Deficient Spellers.

Acutally, I need all teh help I cna get.

I think you ought to frame that note you found, and use it to teach your children lessons in perseverance.

#1 has been going around our house for months now...it makes me CRAZY...."oh-oh-ohhh, oh-oh-ohhh..." See? URGH

Christy said...

I just noticed your line about "eagerly awaiting some real-life hate mail"...dude, you're too nice for hate mail. :)
