Nuthin, Nuthin, More Nuthin, and Nuthin With Cheese

The posts have been few and far between, and goddamn boring when they do show up, and for that, I am sorry. I didn’t have to work on Saturday or Sunday last weekend (two days off! in a row! oh, the decadent lifestyle I enjoy), yet I’ve got nothing to show for all this leisure time on the blog.

Lessee, what's been happening? Lula got into preschool, but Lumpyhead was waitlisted. Not sure what that means for September, or if this foreshadows their college hopes, or if I'm building resentment in my eldest child by lording it over him that his sister got into school so what the hell is his problem already.

We went out for an early dinner on Sunday where I had a 22 oz Heineken and got a little drunk. After dinner we went to see Aunt Bob and found her unloading a new video game which required singing. I was drunk enough that not only did I sing, I enjoyed it, and that's just bad news for everyone.

When you earn a high enough score in the game, you unlock additional songs. Later Bump and I decided we should send in Sarah to unlock all available songs, which she could probably do in about fifteen minutes, but I guess that would be cheating (plus, I obviously need to be hammered before I subject anyone to my off-pitch vocal stylings ever again).

So let our evening be a lesson to you: a big heinie can be dangerous.

Aunt Bob was in Atlantic City last weekend, and Bump and I took every opportunity we had to remind her to beware the seagulls before she left. We also giggle uncontrollably whenever we think about it.

Say cheese.
Lumpyhead: CHEEEEESE!

That Lula, already an overachiever! You better keep an eye on that one.

Waaah ... I want cheese!

Lumpyhead's a cutie, all right! And sounds like Lula's doing great -- good work!

Glad that you're going to get more leave soon ... hurrah for you for asking for it!

(Sorry for all the exclamation points -- can we chalk it up to being 1 a.m., between feedings?)

He looks so cute in that photo. I was surprised when you wrote that Lula was in preschool - surely she's nowhere near old enough for it yet, or are the waiting lists really 2-3 years long?

Hook me up!

Get me drunk enough and I'll unlock songs all night. You know that I started singing just because I enjoyed microphones so much.
