Lagniappe – January 21, 2009

  • I’m on Day 3 of this headache and I’m ready for it to be done.  This has been going on for three years, but I just can’t get used to it.
  • We watched Bye, Bye, Birdie on the DVR tonight.  I got to tell the kids about seeing it on stage in Florida with Charles Nelson Reilley and then in New Orleans with Tommy Tune.
  • The kids are choosing science fair topics.  Ga’hoole Girl wants to calculate the amount that the raw materials of Solomon’s Temple would cost in today’s dollars.  Wild Man wants to do something involving a trebuchet – are we surprised?!
  • I’ve been playing Phantom Hourglass on Ga’hoole Girl’s Nintendo DS.  The kids and Mr. Math Tutor laugh at how I talk while I’m playing.  Apparently, I’m rather amusing.  Anyway, I keep getting killed.  Ga’hoole Girl keeps playing enough that she’s always a couple steps ahead of me.
  • I’m knitting a sweater for Mr. Math Tutor that is coming along very nicely, but I found some mistakes in my cabling about halfway down.  He told me not to redo it and that he’ll show it to anyone who thinks the sweater isn’t handmade!

Those science fair projects sound wicked awesome. You should have her build a little miniature Solomon's Temple. Responding to your previous post, I remember when my brother made this big baking soda/vinegar volcano. He colored the vinegar red, and had a bunch of monopoly houses at the foot of the mountain. Just brought back memories.
