achoo

Ok... I'm awake... I'm awake...
What is the trick to convincing your child to blow his nose? George will not... seemingly cannot.... blow his nose... this makes for some really gross sniffling noises over long stretches of time... like the last three hours... ick.



So we watched Legally Blonde last night... drank chocolate (belgian white chocolate) liqueur and laughed. This started tooo late however and I didn't make it to bed until like 2:00. I really need to go to bed earlier. If I had a dollar for every time I said that in my journal... I'd have a whole bunch of dollars.

That movie... Monster Inc. This was a great movie... the thing of it is... and no shit here... there were kids sobbing in the lobby 5 minutes after the movie ended...let alone bawling their eyes our in the theater. This had some scary stuff going on in it for wee kidlettes... I mean, the premise of the movie is that monsters come out of your closet to scare the shit out of you and collect your scream. Disney and Pixar present.... sheesh.

wearing
~ Survivor Africa Boxers...
~ big red comfy sweatshirt...
~ the desire for more sleep like a banner...
planning
~ to go to a birthday dinner thing for my FIL and SIL... Kind of a two-in-one thing...
~ finishing the "structure" science project with George... I'm really doing my best to not do the project and get him to reason stuff out and do the work... I can, however, imagine the daddys of other little rugrats in their basement right now with power tools and building plans... hahaha.. oh well.
wishing
~ to say a few quick things... been on my Lj lobes lately...
~ serraph has some of the most intense and provocative (maybe too strong a word) user icons I've ever seen... (and she's a really very interesting journal ... )
~ I miss screaminbanshee and I'd love it if someone knew where she went and if she's ok.
~ caren has revamped her web presence... and it looks great!!!
~ I'm glad I'm moowazz's friend...
~ carrie really needs to get some sleep.

Later skaters... (ps... I really need a shower)

Hiya...

Just a sitting and working on some stuff... cams on and I'm sipping fresh ground, fresh brewed, dark roasted coffee... with fresh cream. (this is the essential nirvana drink for me).

The Structure...

So this is the structure...

The project was to use three dif materials and make something that would protect against either water, light, or wind. (grade 1, btw)

Geo will bring this to school tomorrow and explain how that it is a house... that he made with styrofoam, cardboard and plastic.

(the foam is the shells that the new home theater speakers came in... the cardboard is from the packaging as well and the plastic is the wrap that was around the amp.... )



He will go on to explain, as he did in several practice runs today..., that he hot-glue-gunned the foam together to make the building, and covered a piece of cardboard with plastic and made the roof. He painted it red and drew bricks on with a marker. His dad had to help him hot glue the roof in place...

To demonstrate that the structure will protect the insides from WET... he has a dropper of water that he has to squeeze onto the roof and then proove that the insides are dry.

We had fun with this... he spent a while drawing the bricks... :D
