Whole lotta labia.
ST reading to TBD before bed: "C is for car that drives around town. D is for ducklings that fry up nice and brown."
Me: That is not what it says!
ST: Circle of life, darling. It's important that she knows these things.

*sigh*

Speaking of books for the girl. Am I the only one who remembers these books? I'm totally getting them for her. Possibly not the one about how things work, because they were published in the late 70's and I just don't think she needs to know about how a reel-to-reel functions, but these two are fun.

Today's schedule includes getting a little work done, grabbing some last minute stocking stuffers, packing, and heading down to my mom's. I'm contemplating getting a wireless router for her as a random gift just so that I can stay online easier while I'm there. I'm horrible, aren't I? Well, I'm supposed to be working tomorrow, so it would actually help with that.

How are you guys?

I don't know those books, but I was all over The Charlie Brown Big Book of Answers and Questions. They didn't really do school book fairs overseas the way they do them here, but our school received a Scholastic catalog once, and I was allowed to order one book. I jumped on that thing and kept it close all through elementary school. :D

I think the router would make an awesome gift, actually. :)

I was totally like that with these books. I can distinctly remember some of the illustrations and that the "About the Sky..." one is what taught me who climbed Everest first. I think she'll like them. I hope she will.

Why are you not here so we can go to the pub and poke at the fire and mock obsessive fangirls? It's totally what I put on my letter to Santa and yet... meh.

Any book that tells kids about Sir Edmund and Tenzing automatically rules.

I've been told that Santa's LJ email address went through Hotmail, and Russian hackers got him. He had a stupid password, too, something like mrsclauscooch123 or whatnot. So maybe he had it coming.

TELEPORTATION IS OUR ONLY OPTION.

Never heard of the books before, but books = good.

The wireless router - we did that for my mom and what a brilliant stroke it was. Go for it!

I am frantically trying to get myself motivated to shower, do the dishes, and then pack the car, since I'm supposed to be leaving no later than 3pm for my folks' house. um. hi, internets! hi!

also? I completely suck, so TBD's gift just went out yesterday via priority mail, so they may or may not be arriving tomorrow and/or Boxing Day. hurrah?

also? I am running from The Little Drummer Boy, which is following me from satellite radio station to satellite radio station to regular radio station to CD and back again. sigh.

Merry Christmas! Happy Boxing Day! &etc. etc. etc.
