Not a bad one, actually a good one. Miz Liz is outside looking for sticks. She apparently needs them "really badly" because her first grade class is making Leprechaun Traps. The is a voluntary project, and Lizzy is very very ...

We don't have that in Texas. I would like to try yours and the other one.

"So, let me see if I understand this. Frollo is like Mother Gothel, only worse?" ~Abby, age 12

And, well, she's right. They both keep children captive in towers, but at least Mother Gothel is not guilty of actually telling Rapunzel that she's worthless until the child believes it. At least not in the Disney animated Canon. Frollo is, and in Disney he doesn't even have an excuse for it (like keeping himself alive, as Gothel does).

The parallel just never occurred to me before Abby said it.

+Charlie Hoover Yes! I think that's one of the few episodes almost every Who fan can agree on. Just a perfect episode. I love Neil Gaiman
 
You know, between Doctor Who and Supernatural, angels will never be the same for me again.

Abby: Laston, if I give you $3 can we rent Coraline on Amazon?
Laston: Yes, but not cash; you can work it off in chores.
Abby: <beat> Um... after we watch the movie?

It's the Actor Allusion trope, although in this case it works the other way around - Keith David was the Cat before he was Dr Facilier, I believe.

Shameless, I am. And proud of it.

And we begin the morning with a sentence made from two of Abby's vocabulary words: "There was a stout, pungent man running through my yard."

Because that's not creepy at all.

+Jefferson Smith, yes, well, Abby is twelve, and the book they're reading is City of Ember so I'm pretty sure they are using "stout" in the adjectival form. :)

Sometimes the things that come out of my 7yo daughter's mouth bemuse me. I was not prepared for this gem out of the blue tonight:

"Mommy, is the reason you can't have any more babies that you don't make milk from your body anymore?"

"Um, no, more the other way around; I don't make milk because I can't make more babies."

Not bad for catching the correlation, though.

Much drama - and not the adolescent kind, except as below - this week. First of all, this was our week for our annual play with me, my dad, and my sibling. My brother was sick, so my stepmother came instead, and my sister fel...

That's awesome! 
 
I don't know whether to be amused or appalled that 12yo Abby's favorite song from FernGully is "Toxic Love," sung by Tim Curry, and um... let's just say reminiscent of "Sweet Transvestite," from Rocky Horror.

And today that's exactly what Lizzy (7) and I did. You see, it's midwinter break in our school district, and Leanna's at her mom's and Abby is in a day camp for drama (at this cool place, where she immediately made a favorabl...

Trying to remember a comic book character firstname Smith or firstname Jones. firstname = some sort of descriptive (like my buddy +Chuck Stevens' usual character name) 

I have a vague feeling it was set in the Old West, but I could be completely wrong.

Anyone? Beuller? (no, not Beuller, but you get the idea).

Introduction
JennTheGamerMom here! Also known as GrumpyJenn - but I'm really not, much.

I blog at Out of the Mouths of Gamers' Babes (and this is babes in the children sense; get your mind out of the gutter)
I'm socially liberal, fiscally moderate, going to school online, writing for fun (but alas, not profit), working full time, and being a Mom (it's not a job; it just is).

I don't mind text-based smut or NSFW, but audio-video NSFW will get you uncircled and possibly blocked; I have small kids hanging around me and my laptop quite a bit.
