Crazy good.

Much silliness at Corner Bakery. We had to get out of the house this morning, because it was being shown (halleluiah), and ended up here for about an hour. The kids got super silly, as you can see- Bo becoming an elephant, and Emma becoming a huge fan of elephants. I love these pictures. My own dear goof balls.

It's worse than finals around here! Procrastination galore!

There's this new movie out.

I love it. Love love love it.

Love it better with my ancient history stud husband, and my greek and latin scholar brother.

But I'm willing to go see it alone. Right now, even. Even with work piled up on my desk. I'll leave this post halfway done if someone said "You should go see 300 right now."

Hey! That's a great idea!

But no, really I do have work to do. So obviously I'm blogging.

Went to the dentist yesterday. (Now that sentence just reeks of exciting things to come, doesn't it? Are you on the edge of your seat yet?)

I screamed.

Screamed! At the DENTIST office! Well, he didn't numb me very well, and then drill started burning, so he decided to give me more novocaine and didn't put the lidocaine gel on first, and I swear that needle almost went straight through my gum and out my ear. Well, after I screamed, I started laughing and apologizing, even though tears were running out my eyes and into the charming bulbous pink chamber over my nose blowing happy gas at me. I patted it fondly with one finger saying "Must be the gas talking."


I know.

Here are things I thought about while under the influence of Nitrous Oxide.


dang it, relax!

I'm hungry.

I wonder if this guy is going to try to torture me. Wouldn't that be terrible?


Relax, this guy is not going to torture you.

Are they laughing at my pink nose?

Deep breath through the nose.

Lord. Why can't I focus and turn to You?

I'm hungry.

Are we done yet?


You should know that I had five fillings removed and replaced. AND I get to go in two weeks and have five on the top taken out and replaced. I get the chills just thinking about it. I think "Laughing gas" is a misnomer. (even though I laughed) because it doesn't really make you happy or knock you out, it just renders you incapable of strangling the dentist or smacking the crap out of him.

Seriously must get to work.

So more about movies.

I loved: A Good Year
Mrs Palfrey at the Clairmont
Here Comes the Groom (classic Bing with Jane Wyman. GREAT songs)
Stranger than Fiction
Prestige- all the talking I can do about this movie has been spent on Bill and Linda B.
(you know, there have been some good movies out lately! How nice for a change!)

No, I really must get to work. Stop!

Bo lost two teeth in the space of 12 hours! He finally lost that front baby tooth! I'm so happy, and so is he. Now he is no longer Mater but "The Toothless Ol' Buffalo" to quote Calamity Jane.
It's very giggly around here just lately. Bo is on the third Harry Potter book. Emma read "How Many Fish" with just a few prompts. This is HUGE and we are very proud of her. Many other bragging mother things, but I think the dentist story was boring enough for tonight.

Oh, and I didn't forget about the big box. I will get to it soon!

The Cute Pose Fairy

For some time now, Bo has been infrequently visited by an imp we have named the "Cool Pose Fairy." He occaisionally wakes up and finds his action figures and lego guys have changed positions in the night. Here they have laid aside their weapons and have made peace over cereal.

We have been visited by yet another character, one aptly named the "Cute Pose Fairy." Because Emma says, "I don't like cool. I only like cute."

Emma informed me that she and Bo didn't think fairies were real. Except that they believed the Cool Pose Fairy and the Easter Bunny were real. But none of the others. Then she started to think about it, and I changed the subject.

Busy Busy Busy

Cleaning up, organizing, working, eating right, exercising.

It's just crazy busy around here, and though I'm very content, I'm extremely tired when the day is over, or say around 2pm, when it feels like the day should be over.

One thing I've done is gone through my scrap stuff. I have a boat-load of stuff to give away. I think I'm going to do it in one huge box. Anyone interested? Just post and tell me if you are. I'm not going to make it a game. I don't have the intellect for that at the current moment.

However, if you would like to vote "yes" or "no" as to whether I should go get a manicure today, you can do that. Thanks.

Oh and my sister has a new blog. It's very interesting and helpful for those of us who are turning over a new leaf in the nutrition department.
