Also yeah, we haven't come up with anything other than Poppi to call him. Kid has given up on "Skeletor" and now just calls him "Pops."

Which is fine: kid's only surviving grandfather gets called "Papa" so it's not as awkward as when my sister got a pet mouse that she named "Sugar" but who promptly littered, resulting in us calling her "Mom" which then made it awkward when I wanted to stop calling our mother "Mommy."

New-cat introductions have gone fairly well. We're up to all three of them having the run of the house, getting fed at the same time, etc. Direct interactions are still awkward, though. Poppi (lower) got in the empty file cabinet and Ramses just watched until Poppi swatted at a toy I teased him with, and I got too close to Ramses with it. Then Ramses swatted and hissed and grumbled, and Poppi went to sit under the recliner. Ramses got in the drawer and was all "why will no one play with me?" πŸ™„

My husband just broke the 19yo's brain by reminiscing about when his dad took him to a drive-in porno by way of sex ed.

I feel like this sign is counter-productive, that someday a kid is gonna be hit while a driver is still on about line four.

I took a screenshot of this because "don't forget the stamps" amused me and then I got home and went "actually I should have bought a sheet of Gwen Ifill stamps."

To be clear, that's looking down on him. Here he is from another angle.

(Also yes that recliner is going on twenty years old, don't judge.)

My dude, if *all* you can sell your jeans on is that they have deep pockets, you still do not understand women's jeans.

(also bought: "Peppa en el espacio!" so I can try reading to the littles who only speak Spanish (preferably while my little translator buddy is NOT there to laugh at me) and First 100 Words in English/Spanish for when I'm not up to reading in entirely Spanish.))

Read-to-littles day! I brought a few new books, which the teacher said "Ms. Karen brought you some new books!" and a couple of the kids thought she meant "for you to take home" so there was a little disappointment. Clearly I gotta get them hooked up with that local charity that does used-book drives for classrooms and get my little friends some books for home.

I also gotta find them some music DVDs because this business of "wait through the YouTube commercial for the sing-along to start" is πŸ’©.

Ever since the Google Maps Lady said the street name out loud it has bugged me:

What is the correct pronunciation of the name "Lippincott"?
