We don't nead no stinking snuggie

Who buys the snuggie? The only people I have ever seen with snuggies are hoarders who sleep on their toilets because they cannot make it to the potty because they have too much stuff.

But I had this from when I was pregnant:

But she prefers to snuggle with Daddy:

Visit to Crackerville

I really don't like the visit to crackerville. I dread it every year. This year, people did not show up and there was disappointment from some people and delight by me. Also the idiot who threw me in the pool on my wedding day (am I ever going to let that go? NO) is now a supervisor and made a big deal about his laptop. Like it was 1997.

Avatar

Yohboh and I went to go see Avatar. Big blue people in a visually stunning world with a ham handed story. But big blue people! It was almost three hours long.

Ava spent this time with GaGa.
