Weekend Nerd Updates and New CUP Photo Info

November 6, 2011

1) I saw Lazer Tag in Macy’s. I wanted it. Badly. The Hubby didn’t agree to the purchase. I almost had a temper tantrum in the store like a two year old.

2) Later at Target we were walking through the 50% off Halloween aisles, and I managed to convince The Hubby to try on this Batboy costume. He didn’t let me buy it for him, but I was actually okay with that.

3) We actually did buy this from the Target 50% off Halloween aisle and made the dog wear it. There’s a special kind of hell waiting for people like us.

4) I found this cartoon of Dumbo with stretched earlobes on poorlydressed.com and have been trying to find a way to work it into a blog post ever since.

5) While grocery shopping I saw this jumbo pack of lunch-size chips, and the first thing I thought was “Eat ALL the chips!

6) My new shirt came in from lolshirts.com!

7) The Hubby and I each bought funny looking shoes.

8 ) The Hubby and I played Dodgeball with a bunch of grown adults and had a BLAST. We’re going again next Wednesday. You know, if we can walk again by then. So…much…pain! Not from getting hit with dodgeballs (they’re foam, not rubber), but we’re trying to recover from the aching shoulders, spasming back muscles and burning knee and hip joints from the overexertion! Also, I have a blister on my big toe *sniff*.

Close-Up Photo Contest

I’ve had several people remind me that we’re not done with the CUP Contest. I love that you guys love it so much. So here’s the deal: Starting on Tuesday November 8th, I will be posting a new CUP EVERY DAY at noon (12pm Central Standard Time). We’re going to play every day until somebody reaches 1000 points. After that I’m thinking about keeping it as a regular feature, but we’ll have individual winners for each photo entry. So, keep your eyes open – somebody is going to win the CUP Contest very, very soon!

Cross-Country Connections: Cute Overload

October 17, 2011

Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in very different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Cute Overload.

From Erin in Bellingham, Washington:

Hand-knit creations by Erin.

From me in Minneapolis, MN: 

I didn’t find anything particularly cute to photograph this week, but I remembered this picture which I took at the Twin Cities Gay Pride Parade this summer. This little girl is walking with her mom and handing out Human Rights Campaign stickers. Look at her shirt sleeves!

From Mom in Carbondale, Illinois: 

When you have Kittehs you have cute overload – I’m just sayin’.

Little Girl Nerd

February 3, 2011

Oh. My. God. She is doomed to geekdom for-EVAH.

I love her.

Highlights:

  • At 3:02 – EYE-RIN!
  • At 4:02 – Alumumumumun…Next card.
  • AT 5:41 – Einsteinium!
  • At 8:55 – Awk-xygen’s blue.

Did you notice that she’s wearing a girly pony T-shirt AND that she knows the periodic table better than you?

UPDATE: 2/4/11 – 12:30pm:

Go check out Howard at Le Cafe Witteveen.  He’s 2.5 yo and ALSO knows his periodic table better than I do. I think that Howard and Rose should get together in a couple of decades and make smert babies.

Too early for cute

December 18, 2010

Yesterday I worked from home and had a couple of distractions.  Well, one distraction a couple of three or four times.

I’m watching you…waiting for your weakness to show itself…and then, then I shall make my move!

Since you insist on ignoring me I shall make myself comfortable on these things you seem to find sooooo much more interesting than me.

A consequence of stepping away from the computer to stretch.  Never leave a cat in the same room as a warm chair, unless you want to stay standing.

And this morning I discovered the dangers of not folding my clothes immediately:

Mmmm…the bristly feel of dog hair on my towel after a nice shower.
