Due to illness, we are having Nutritional and Educational Write-Off week. I am right now eating half of a lemon meringue pie, Nat's having chips, there have been hot dogs twice this week and the kids have eaten a lot of chocolate. We had nachos for lunch yesterday. There has been an endless watching of Toy Story. Geoff, in his mercy, is right now downloading the rest of the Pixar movies so I don't gouge my eyes out by the middle of next week.

In sentences never before spoken in English, I asked Nat shortly before lunch, "Why are you strapping that banana into the babies' carseat?"

Nat still has vampires and Transformers confused, in spite of lots of attempts to persuade them that they're different.

Look, Nat, it's simple.

Vampires transform into bats, or sometimes a wolf, or mist.

Transformers turn into robot-people. And robot-cars. And robot cassette tapes. Pretty much robot stuff.

It might be more confusing if Transformers turned into, I don't know, a flock of robo-bats, or if Vampires turned into robo-cassettes that play nothing but Bach's toccata and fugue in D minor, over and over. I can understand your confusion, though. They both lie to us through hiding their real form, making them inherently untrustworthy.

Off to bed. New job is good, but getting up at 5:30 is not.

No, it isn't. I'm sure Geoff agrees with you, too.
