I Crack Me Up

So Peter Mayhew tweeted:

I replied:

and nearly pissed myself laughing.

God I'm such a nerd.

It's become a family tradition that for our daughter's birthday, she makes a mix CD of her favorite songs to include with the party favors.  It's always a huge hit with the parents, because it's not another rinky dink toy for kids to bring home and discard in minutes, and the music is actually tolerable.  I think this year's is by far the best yet (despite the obligatory Disney songs :-/ ):

1. Everything at Once - Lenka
2. Cello Wars - The Piano Guys
3. I Heard It Through the Grapevine - Rhythms Del Mundo feat. Kaiser Chiefs
4. A Whole New World (from "Aladdin") - Brad Kane & Lea Salonga
5. Firework - Katy Perry
6. I See the Light (from "Tangled") - Alan Menken
7. S.I.M.P. (Squirrels In My Pants) - 2 Guys n the Parque (from Phineas & Ferb)
8. Mahna Mahna - The Fray
9. Just Around the Riverbend (from "Pocahontas") - Judy Kuhn
10. That's How You Know (from "Enchanted") - Amy Adams
11. Elevation (Influx mix) - U2
12. The Powerpuff Girls (End Theme) - bis

She is the Joy and the Laughter

How we pass the time on road trips*:
"So, if you could be a Digimon Tamer or a...Powerpuff Girl, which would you be?"
"Powerpuff Girl!"
"Okay, what about Powerpuff Girl or a Jedi?"
"Powerpuff Girl!"
"What about..."
"Dad, whatever you're going to ask me, I'm going to answer Powerpuff Girl."

Can't really argue.  Jedi can't fly.
 *doesn't actually pass much time

Lucky the Accidental Kitten

So today, while waiting for my wife to pick me up (we've been carpooling), I got a text from her.  Then this little conversation happened:
Sometimes I think I know her TOO well...

When she arrived, I was introduced to Lucky, the three-day-old kitten she accidentally acquired.
How do you "accidentally" acquire a kitten?
Where there's my wife, there's a way.

Oh no they DIDN'T!

Last week, my daughter came home upset because she'd been arguing with some of her Kindergarten classmates...about Star Wars.  Apparently they insisted that Princess Leia doesn't have a lightsaber, and she was trying to convince them that she does get a lightsaber eventually, because I had shown her pictures that prove it.  So naturally, she got upset because she told the truth and they didn't believe her.

Resisting my initial urge to suggest she tell them to shut their little turd mouths for daring to question her (and by extension, my) Star Wars knowledge, I decided I'd help her resolve the situation by providing her evidence to support her claim.
