Hello to all my adoring fans...it's been a while...where to begin? I hope Christmas spirit is well and good in your nature and that you are on your way to a lovely Christmas Day.
Sorcha has made some comments and queries of interest as of late and I feel they deserve to be typed into blog land.
Every day at school, her class checks out the days weather on their smart board. ( a type of interactive white board that can be connected to the Internet.) Sorcha has noticed that the weather outside does not always match up or reflect the weather conditions on the weather network website. However, she does not believe this is the fault of the weather network folk. No she strongly believes this due to the fact that ( and I quote) "The weather has no appreciation for the weather network." So apparently the meteorologists are never wrong...it's the weather and it's shenanigans...
A few weeks ago I was heading out to the gym. Due to illness, it had been about 3 weeks since I had gone. On my way out the door I said "Gah, it's been so long since I've been! I'm going to die!" And Sorcha says "Not literally Mummy..." I don't know about you, but that word wasn't in my vocab when I was 6. I was surprised that she used it in a sentence and more impressed that she used it correctly as I've heard adults use the word horribly wrong! It was very amusing.
The other day while we were all getting ready for work and school and what not, Sorcha, who is a bit obsessed with the cartoon Grinch, says "You know what? There should be a movie called 'Santa kills the Grinch'. " Trying not to laugh, Sean and I suggested that perhaps the movie could be called "Santa catches the Grinch and throws him in jail" because Santa would never kill anyone. And Sorcha's responce was "No...the title is too long." I'm inclined to agree with her...
And wrapping up the tales I've been meaning to share with my fans is a new twist on an old classic Christmas song that a couple of Sorcha's friends at school made up. (It should go down in history...)
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Mousie
Had a very shiny toe
And if you ever saw it
He would be more awesomer than a Panda.
And on that note, I bid you all a fine farewell and wish you all the happiest and safest of Christmases...
'til we meet again,
