Want Some Melamine?

Melamine scandal hits candy makers... I know, you really can't help but buy things made in China, but good god. First it was dog food, cat food, now milk and candy. Poor China...

This is funny. It's not just that children are coming out of a dick.... that's bad enough, but the song, which is Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody with kazoo, now that is classic.

Embarrassment is...

Saying you'll fill up your wife's car and she cranks up the radio because Billy Joel comes on. Except it's not really a rock song (it's Piano Man) and it's not really a kick ass system, it's factory Honda. But she turns it up anyway and all I can do is shrug. Yes that was me at Enmark in case anybody was wondering, and yes not only did we have it turned all the way up, there was singing by one passenger as well. I'm sorry for that.

You like my hair?

My daughters, how I love them. My little one was in the bed this morning... my bed... and in the morning you have to walk on eggshells with her because you're just one bad move away from a meltdown. So anyway, I avoided a significant emotional event (barely, I was trying to put my arm around her) and she says, "You like my hair?" "I love your hair, in fact I love every part of you."

And she gave me a kiss.

Sometimes you screw up and other times you're a genius...

Jesus of Prague

My wife has this Jesus of Prague statue that was her grandmother's. It's a piece of plastic, about 4-5 inches in length tops. My 2-year-old likes playing with it, even though we don't encourage it. Anyway she woke up about 5am and settled back into bed with us after going potty. We were one big snuggley pile. Then we get up, My daughter has her breathing treatment (she has a cold) and after what was a great morning, she takes Jesus and throws him to the floor, mad, about something I did. (maybe)

We make her pick him up, give him a kiss and put him back. Even I wouldn't admonish Jesus... too much.

My wife and young daughter got home a little late yesterday. Work and stuff, anyway when they get home it's dicey on what kind of mood my daughter is going to be in. So as my wife runs upstairs to change I look over at my daughter. She has, what I call "plumber". You know, when your crack is hanging out of your pants. I tell her (because I think joking with her will crack the ice) that she has plumber. She looks back at me and says "No going to Wal-Mart" and skirts up the stairs after her mother.

Yep, it's the life I live.

A moment

So I had my bonchica-bow-bow moment the other day. My daughter and I were assembling a side table for my bedroom. There is a basket in our bedroom that my other daughter uses for toys. So my 12-year-old happens to notice a pair of underwear in the toy basket... She can't understand how it got there. I do, most any adult would, but she can't comprehend it... which is probably a good thing.

I'm leaving Wal-Mart, my most favorite thing to do, and the guy is checking receipts like they do at Sam's. But the Wal-Mart man really isn't checking anything, because he said so. We stopped and said "we have two receipts" thinking that he might want to know that bit of information, but he didn't, he said " I aint got time to look at all of that". One wonders what exactly is he doing then?

Old Spice

I'm not really all about commercialism, but old spice almost makes me want to buy their stuff.... I said almost. Still, if you have time check them out, their swagger line is if nothing else, funny.

Don't Bite

So we were outside, enjoying the nice weather. My wife and I on the hammock. I was telling my wife how we were laying too close to the bird feeder, and she replied "Don't bite the hand that feeds" (a Madagascar movie quote) and my little girl says "don't bite the hammock?" Yeah it's the life I live.

Hurricane coverage makes me want to throw up. Sure everybody evacuate, but the news? We're going to be right there taking every squall and rain drop coming. Whatever...
