A couple of pictures of Mia and her horrible new habit are here, if you are interested. (Sorry y'all, I can't double post and I've already talked about it over there, so it seemed appropriate to follow up over there.)
And hey, here's a special bonus:
Photo by Sarah. That's the charming and lovely Ian climbing the walls in the background. Not pictured are the also-charming and lovely Claudia (although she didn't deign to speak to me yesterday) and the incredibly patient Klaus (the cat), who spent several minutes wearing the same necklace Mia is modeling, much to her delight. Now she wants to have him over for a tea party.
Hey, speaking of Sarah, go tell her she looks fierce. Also speaking of Sarah, she pointed out that I could have just crimped the hot water hose when I disconnected it from the washing machine to discover that water was still gushing out at an alarming rate, to which I say 1) oh, duh, and 2) WHERE THE HELL WERE YOU WHEN I NEEDED YOU, SARAH? ANSWER ME THAT, WHY DON'T YOU?
And hey, you guys are a big bunch of lovable freaks. Entertain me today by telling me about your superstitions. I would go first, but I don't have any. Don't worry, I'm as odd and twisted as anyone else, just have never been bitten by that particular bug. At least, not unless you count my firm belief that the dishwasher has to be loaded correctly (as in my way) or else the world will come crashing to an end, but I don't think that counts.
