Mob Mentality


I would just like to take this opportunity to say to my Actual Daughters, "Yes, now I know what racketeering is."

They'll understand what I mean.

Brownie Points


It's fair to say my children have a complicated relationship with their food.  For instance, Older Daughter worries that when she LIKES a food, that that food will then make demands on her because of their emotional connection.

She refuses to give into this kind of psychological blackmail, and I applaud her.

The Way We Word

But, just so we're clear, she was SOOOOO not kidding about this.  When Wife finally snaps and goes into her berserker rage attacking passers-by with a SlapChop, it will be a result of a situation identical to the above.

The Little Plumber Boys


So I'm not technically supposed to be posting today, but since I missed Friday, I figured I owed you guys.

I just care about you all so darn much.

Yes, that's right, I became giddy about the idea that Anna Kendrick was writing a script.
And now you know just that little bit more about me.

Under Construction

(which is to say, my blog post for today is still under construction)

(Sorry - it will be up tomorrow)

How I Play With My Food


My daughter pointed out that this would help deal with the problem of ensuring that melted butter and syrup get into the little holes under each waffle, because the Lego bumps will press both upwards, coating the ENTIRE waffle and creating an even tighter seal between waffles.

As if this idea wasn't winning enough.

We Are Not a Muse


Older and Younger Daughters wanted me to tell you that while this exchange was going on, they were doing very hilarious things, only they didn't take pictures or video of them with their phones.  So they've asked me to ask you to imagine something really hilarious and then to laugh at it.  Only laugh at it a lot more than you should, because the hilarious thing they came up with was probably way more hilarious than what you thought of.

They also say, "You're welcome."
