Cleaning out the refrigerator is always a Good Thing To Do, because you find things that must be used up and sometimes the results are excellent. This time the result was chocolate zucchini bread.

Spent more time grubbing around in the basement, putting things in boxes today. Lots of things to be Gotten Rid Of, hopefully to some deserving charity, and the Christmas stuff is now ready to move to the new house. I'm one of those people that unwraps presents very carefully, so that the wrapping paper can be reused. We have quite a bit of old wrapping paper now, so could someone please give me permission to throw it away? Thanks, I'd appreciate it.

DrBob was in Munich all day, and the Sniglet is at the Oompas', so I was home alone with Ignatz. It was interesting in that it was an almost conflict-free day: he did what I asked him, I listened to his information about Bionicles and sharks, we got along really well even though we were cooped up in a house together on a rainy day. Zero fights. I need to think about why that is. Or rather, why that isn't, when either of the others is around. Hmm.

Song du jour of the day: Discover a Lovelier You, by the Perniece Brothers, from the mixmania! CD Chuck sent me. I like the song a lot, but the Sniglet loves it - that and Ridin' Dirty, from the CD that ~d sent me. Whenever either song comes on, he "dances" to it, using karate moves he learned from SpongeBob. It's pretty entertaining.

Why That Is, my opinion...
Subtract 5 year old = increased predictability, less noise and stimulation.
Subtract poppa = increased choice and control???
Momma alone = more attention and patience.

That's my official consultant thinking... What do you think?

Just So You Know: "Ridin' Dirty" is my suburban white-dad closet rap fan code word for "currently wearing a diaper full of poo." I love it when the older kids say it without knowing that it's from a rap song. Makes me feel like I have a secret. heh.

I'm just going to give you permission to go ahead and throw out the old ass, used wrapping paper. Why? Because as far as I know you are not my grandma.

HAHAHA! Try cleaning out a fridge after the power has been out for several weeks-and its summer. Nevermind-not a good time! HHAHAA
I love Ridin' Dirty. They mention the 504 Boys-that is New Orleans' area code. There are a few other post-katrina refences in it.
Raindog told me to ceck out Boy Kill Boy, but I can't FIND it-can you???
