Tues-er...Wednesday Twitters?

OK so I am late on TT...it happens, right? If I were a week late, then that might be a problem...or really, it would just be next Tuesday.

My daughter tried to choose a card during a game, and she said, "neemy eemy miney mo, cafer tiga nema do." I promise no one was drinking.

We taught her the rhyme, after laughing. A lot. Then after teaching her I wish I would have left her alone. It was so cute.

So, I am pretty sure, like 75.4% sure, that this spider is trying to kill us.

Every day it makes a web across our front door. We take down the web. It builds it again. Then, I even MOVED said spider to another location and he CAME BACK TO KILL US! If you don't hear from me, assume the spider ate me. And yes I took this picture. Again, my camera ROCKS!

Yeah, I am probably slightly obsessed with spiders. And coffee. And zombies. My kids probably get their vivid imagination, and insomnia, from me.

We went on a nature walk yesterday and saw all of these, and came home and looked them up to identify and learn about them. From left to right is the narrow-winged damselfly, short-horned grasshopper, and the tomato horn worm. Cool huh?



Jacob also learned how to navigate using a map. Homeschooling RULZ!

My pal Harriet posted this about a blogger getting in trouble for calling a model mean names on her blog. I just want to clarify I said Kim Catrall was rockin' that bikini, r-o-c-k-i-n...and I meant it! I mean, I am nearly half her age and she hands down looks hotter than me! Totally! She is naturally NATURALLY smokin!!! (paranoid)

I am SO ready for turkey. Anyone else? I mean, I can only eat so much chicken skin, me want me some turkey, like, now!

I think I am addicted to 3D movies. That's what happens when you drink too much coffee...

And I wish this was a full-length feature, because this is hysterical, although I will probably still see the real one, because I love a bad plot, senseless action and zombies, even though there aren't any.

By the way, at the zoo today there were vampire bats, and they were drinking blood from little bowls, and um, I want to write the zoo and complain about that, because that is really, REALLY gross, and if they are gonna do that, they should at least have zombies in the exhibit too so I won't be so freaked out.

I need to stop drinking coffee...

Ewe, drinking blood from a bowl! Nasty!!

Zombie movies are cool! I watch them and the next two days I have a hard time sleeping. You would think I would learn, but nooooooo, I keep watching:)

I wish, wish, wish that you would have taped your daughter saying the rhyme. Because I would love to hear it... As it stands, I'll probably have to wait a couple years to hear it, since I'm going to memorize her version, and teach it to my son...

I like the neemy eemy miney mo part. I do not like the bug part.

Kearsie said...

Oh man, Audrey and Addie would be really hilarious together. Let's meet at the zoo and we can throw garlic and holy water on the bats.

Okay... at first glance that spider looks like he's wearing a jet-pack.

Actually... at second glance too.

Loved those macro bug shots! Isn't it fun magnifying everything in life with your camera and then studying it??? I am addicted to doing it!

Great blog...we have a few very large spiders that web around our house also but I don't think they are trying to kill us...I don't think.
