Lately, Arun has morphed into Hellboy. No, seriously. Gone is my sweet boy of yore who used to snuggle, ask for things politely and treat his sister like a princess. Instead, I get roared at by a boy-sized dinosaur, ordered around by King Henry VIII and trounced upon by Hulk Hogan. What the frock happened to my boy? Will he ever return? Is this just a phase? Will he live to see pre-K?
Anyway, with all these shenanigans, Anjali's poll ratings have increased dramatically. Her campaign run for the 2009 title of Sole Heir to the Oliver-George Fortune is getting off to a smashing start and as such, Arun better watch out or he will end up living in a dumpster wearing all of my costume jewelry.
Sigh. Posting will still be light here for a bit more - please bear with me. I am working on some things for FoodieBytes while trying to wrestle this house back into order. Actually, "pummel into a pulpy submission" is more like it. The house, not FoodieBytes. Besides, the Double As sometimes (not often!) demand my attention for the few seconds they can wipe the drool from their chins as they pry their peepers from the television. Ni hao, Kailan!
Oh, and speaking of the Double As, I went to purchase underwear for Anjali in the hopes she would eschew her diaper in disgust and decide to be the Leader in using the facilities around here (see again about her standings in the Polls as compared to her Jurassic Era brother, she has nothing to lose, people.) However, while at Target today, imagine my pained chagrin when I discovered Diego firmly camped in the BOY'S underwear section and Dora holding her own court in the GIRL'S. Argh. Don't the kindly folks at Nick Jr realize that Dora and Diego are total gender benders? Boys and girls love them equally, kumbaya. Get with the picture, Nick Jr. Anyway, I am hoping that Anjali will not be insulted if her underwear has flaps, right? Therefore, Diego, it is (and some Dora with Hello Kitty for good measure.)
In the midst of all this toilet turmoil, I am trying to decide what to do about my video and photos. I currently have most of them on the Mac, but I am debating whether to just commit to my PC. If I do that, I have to decide what sort of software to use for video and photos on the PC. Ideas? Should I just stick with iPhoto and update the OS on the Mac? Seriously, the OS is original 2004 (with some updates, of course.)
Anyway, I should get back to re-arranging furniture.
