It's Friday and time to Celebrate the Small Things. Welcome to our wonderful oasis of mini-celebrations. A big thanks to the new host, Lexa Cain, and her wonderful co-hosts:
There's a few oddball celebrations going on in my head. Come on in...let's check them out:
- I just finished a great book. When I read a book and find myself pulled in and caring about the characters PLUS there's an interesting backdrop of historical events, it's like literary crack. Look for a review next week.
- Hubzam will be home tomorrow night. I was finding it hard to sleep without his Godzilla sized snoring. Who saw that one coming?
- When Hubzam is gone, Gonzo and I treat the kitchen like a 24 hour cafeteria; one more reason I'll be glad when he gets home. I have no idea why; it's not like he is telling us not to eat like rabid ravenous raccoons when he is home. Yet, when he is away, we throw all caution to the wind and we'll bust a diet in a second. We'll be remorseful, but the diet is kerplunk. Startin' back tomorrow.
- Spell-check, I can disagree with you, if I so choose. In fact, I like to misspell words for my own amusement. It pleases me when I say kerplunk and you try to force spelunker on me. (While we're on the subject, if raccoon is correctly spelled, magical mystical Spell-check, why are you putting your crazy red underline beneath raccoons? Worse yet, the only other option you provide is in the possessive form. What would you like me to use, Spell-check demon spawn of the clustered alphabet? Raccoones? Racceese? Is there a rule that says if you use the plural form of a animal noun with more than one double letter, it will always be wrong? Forget about how many raccoons are around, just give them ownership of something?)
- I had fun with a bunch of kids yesterday as they tried to build a lunar module that could be dropped without losing their "astronaut" passengers (marshmallows). The funniest part occurred when I looked down and saw that two of the girls had taken straws and given their marshmallows pilot headsets. It was hilarious. Then they took a mini-marshmallow and made a child passenger that they called "Peanut." I kept calling it "Marsha," which made them giggle. It was a good day.
