Canine Circle Scarf

Remember that American Apparel Circle Scarf? Well I was cutting the hems off some happy pants (this is what I call pants with drawstrings- THE GREATEST PANTS EVER!) and I decided to put them on Lola. So she is now a trendy fashionista.

Last Soccer Class

Ava had her last soccer class for the year. I don't think I will sign her up next year.

Books I have read

I just finished Room.It is a about a little five year old boy who is the son of a kidnapped woman who is still with her captor. It was a sad novel about what a mom will do to survive.

I am almost done with One Day. It is the British male take on a romance novel. It was cute but not riveting.

What is riveting is Infinite Jest. I have never read David Foster Wallace until now. I am saddened by his death.

Child Stars

I think the reason that there are so many child star sad stories is because you have to have a certain level of trash to whore your child out to the evil Fame monster.

Anyone with an ounce of sense knows that fame fucks you over, in one way or another.

197

I am currently blocking 197 people on flickr because they sent me creepy notes or comments.

Le sigh.

WTF people?

Busy Day

Ava and I visited Daddy at work and GaGa at work.

Funny

When I was three years old, I liked to stick my tongue out in pictures. Nice to see it in my kid.

Happy Accident

I ordered this sweatshirt and it came in the wrong size. I like it because it covers more of Ava so I am keeping it.

Be nice to 86 year olds

Tonight the phone rang and someone asked for Yohboh. I will add that Yohboh has a very common name. Think John Doe.

Anyway, this man wanted to talk to yohboh. They guy did not know yohboh but was looking for someone with the same name that lived in in a neighboring city. This man was 86 years old and the person he was looking for was 87.

For those of you who do not know, I like looking for things on the interweb. So I asked him if I could help. I found him and was able to help the old fella.

I did ask why he was looking for this gentleman and he replied, "To work out." I told him I thought it was great that they worked out together. He replied, "The ladies like it."

I SHIT YOU NOT!

Chicken Wings

Ava eats her wings naked, sans sauce.

My family

Lola has been very gentle with the sick kidlet.

Ninja Lola

007

Lola likes to take our shoes and sneak them over to the family room that we never use.

We have never caught her with a shoe in her mouth.

She is a ninja.

Pomplemousse and Beat it

For some reason, the toy piano makes me chuckle. Pamplemousse is French for grapfruit. CJ told me that in eighth grade and I have not forgotten it.

Circle Scarf

I am kind of fascinated by the American Apparal Circle Scarf. It is a dress! It is a scarf! It is a capelet! It is a headscarf! It can dice onions! It can make a cake!

Being Sick

Ava starts gagging and I grab a bowl and shove it under her face.

Ava: Mommy, I am not going to puke in that bowl. IT IS DIRTY!

Thinking

After a certain age, the word boyfriend seems off. Example, this 90 year old woman was at my yard sale. She told me that anyone who comes to this country should speak English (why do people say shit like this?) and that she had a boyfriend.

Because I think in visuals, guess what pops in my head?

TWO WORDS:

GRAY BALLS!

Sailing

Ava went sailing today. When asked about it, she told me, "I peed in a bucket, Mommy."

Ava's Hair

Since I cut Ava's hair, it is looking very Julia Roberts circa Dying Young.

002

Hairdresser

Last night I gave Ava a hair cut. I cut off about six inches. It was in her butt crack.

New Shoes

005

She is definitely my kid when it comes to shoes. This kid loves shoes.

Conversation from last week

Minjenah, calling her friend N: Hey girl, what's up?
N: Nothing much. Whatchya doing?
Minjenah: I am getting my garbage cans from the end of the driveway. There is a car parked in front of my garden and it looks like there is a new hooker in the neighborhood. I think she is servicing someone in the parked car. It looks like the Married Man Special from the up and down on the driver side.
N: Okay, I am getting you off speaker phone.
