Booby-trapped fruit

I just ate a clementine that had 38 seeds inside. 38! I thought those things were supposed to be seedless.

You know you're rushed in the morning when...

I was late for work this morning. As I dropped Emily off at day care, I happened to look down at my feet and realized that I was wearing one brown shoe and one back one. If it had been socks, I'd have sucked it up and continued on to work. But this looked stupid enough for me to feel the need to drive back home and fix the problem.

Poll finds local two-year-olds prefer woo over wee

As Emily finished her bath tonight and I was lifting her out of the tub, I said to her, "OK, go put on your pajamas, and Mommy will dry your hair." Emily replied, "I don't want weeee. I want woooo."

Any outsider would have had no idea what she was talking about, but she was referring to the two settings on the hair dryer which make different noises.

You've got to be kidding me

I just came home from running errands and found our neighborhood's "Yard of the Month" sign hanging from our mailbox. Who's on that committee, anyway? Were they impressed by all the pretty dandilions?

All I can figure is that the award stemmed from our myriad of Halloween decorations. They did look really good (we even noticed cars slowing down to gawk after we put them up), but now that they've been taken down, anyone looking at the house is going to wonder "Why the hell did they get 'Yard of the Month'?"
