Monday Madness!

I’m still battling my cold, but getting better! I went out to take the Oldest Kidlet* to school (driven by TheBoy) and stopped at the grocery store to get ingredients for our Thanksgiving cheesecake. I managed to forget heavy cream, so I’ll just have the in-laws pick that up for me. The highlight of my day, though, was seeing a classmate of my son and saying hi. She pointed me out to her mom and said that she knows I’m a pirate (it’s the boots)- this would be the sixth kid other than my own who believes that I’m a…

To those going to Comic-Con

One, I am jealous. The timing just didn’t work out, so we’re going to Vegas a little later instead. Next time (I hope). That isn’t what I wanted to say. I wanted to warn you- Westboro Baptist Church will be there. If you aren’t familiar with the name, you probably know the name of their leader Fred Phelps or know him as the guy who protests everything because he believes that homosexuality has doomed us all. I’ve seen a fair number of people saying that WBC will probably be beaten by Comic-Con goers, which made me feel the need to…
