Don't you hate your voice on the answering machine too?

Kay taught Nutmeg to play "Ring Around the Rosie" today. She loves it, especially the "fall down" part. Kay came by to help out while I was talking on a Webcast panel discussion. When I was on the panel, I felt like I was making really smart points, and I felt tan and blow-dried and thought I looked pretty good in my lavender turtleneck. Tonight Epu and I watched the Webcast, and I was saddened to see I looked pallid and pissed off and my hair looked bad. When I mentioned this to Epu, he said, "Purple is not a good color for TV."

Thanks for the support, hubby.

Here's something I do want to thank Epu for, and if you try it you'll be thanking him too: Oatmeal Cream Pie Ice Cream. We were without any chocolate sauce for our vanilla ice cream the other night, when Epu proposed mixing an Oatmeal Cream Pie into it, a la Cold Stone Creamery. He did, and I must tell you, it is unexpectedly delicious. We made it again tonight with the same delightful results.

Things Nutmeg can say but not do: "Blow bubbles" (in the pool), "drink wine," "drink beer," "drink coffee," "grind coffee."

And the best word we heard her say today? That'd be "keyboard."

Hello, I can't scroll down to read beyond the first page of your blog.
You could try editing to a smaller font as a patch-through until the issue is resolved. I want to read the rest fo your entries!
