books

to take my mind off of how empty my life is right now i am doing this meme thing that is making me do.

1 how many books do you own.7

it is hard to say how many i own since i do not have control over them, mamamama and dadadada don’t let me chew on them or anything. but i probably have around maybe 100 but some of them are boring.

2 what’s the last book you bought.7

i do not yet own the means of production, those are in the hands of my bourgeois parents, but they did buy me maisy’s big flap book last. it is very entertaining.

3 what’s the last book you read.7

it was the big mouth frog, it is about a big mouth frog who learns to be a small mouth frog when he is threatened by a crocodile.

…with pictures.7

they all have pictures./

…non-fiction.7

i don’t understand, aren’t these books real.7

4 name five books that mean a lot to you.

fuzzy bee and friends is a priddy book and it was the first one i can really remember getting and it is fun to chew.

beach play is a lot of fun, it is a good report on what happens when you go to the beach.

baloney [henry p.] is very good looking and clever too.

wheels on the bus go round and round because it is so true, they really do, and it plays music when you press the wheel.

very hungry caterpillar, i can relate because now i am all hungry.

5 name five people you’d like to see answer these questions

i will not force other people to take part in this, this is a meme, it should spread without having to have the jackboot of friendship behind it.

yarn is soft

today aunt joy and uncle andy and mamamama and i met amy for lunch and then there was a yarn store, the yarn was so soft. i found some that felt so good i wanted to take it home. it was like cashmere or something. but mamamama wouldn’t get me any even though i would have been very nice to it, i wouldn’t have chewed it.

okay maybe i would have chewed it but only a little bit.

kindermusic

aunt joy does this kindermusic thing where she sings songs and stomps around and has me do movement and that is fun. have any of you done kindermusic.7 if not you should totally try it.

the parade of fans never ends

aunt joy and uncle andy are here and they are evidently going to have a baby, i hope they order the right one and end up with someone as cute as me. actually they should end up with someone less cute so that my star is not eclipsed.

also nana and jon came over yesterday to keep me for a little while and we watched sesame street and then everyone came home and we played and ate and then i went to bed.

rain rain go away

i just got back from a party at dadadada’s work where we celebrated another baby coming. there was cake and ice cream and balloons, balloons are always fun. i got to see friends i haven’t seen in a while and tromp around the building some, last time i was here i had to be carried, so yay for mobility.

but before that there was all this rain and mamamama had to go to buy some stuff for the party and it was all wet and she got all wet so we had to go home so she could change. that was not as much fun. plus now it is hot and sticky like god has decided the mosquitoes really need a leg up or something.

whee slide

i am more rested now so i can tell you about some of the other things i did on my trip to see uncle andy graduate. the big thing was i got to go to a park and there were swings there, that was okay, but they had a slide.

./

why did no one tell me how much fun slides could be.7 now i want to slide more but there aren’t any slides near me. when we went to the church where uncle andy and aunt joy serve they had these chair lift things that if you go up the steps a little way you can then slide down the flat rail part so i did that. i need a slide.

today i went to the doctor for a checkup and i got two shots, it was not bad. okay i cried a little during the second one but not for long. then i got an elmo sticker and that is cool.

hoodies

it was a big driving weekend because we went up to see uncle andy graduate, he has a doctorate in musicology from uiuc now. and that is good and all but there are all these doctors already running around, he’s like the third after dadadada and pr and i know dadadada works with four others of them, it seems like at some point universities would say whoa look at all these doctors we should stop making more of them. or maybe let hunters shoot them. of course uiuc people wear orange so uncle andy would be safe.

i totally stole that joke from the commencement speaker by the way.

which reminds me, commencement speakers are mostly boring, in fact graduations are mostly boring. uncle andy had two of them, the first was in this big auditorium or something, i don’t know, i slept through most of the first part. but then they had all of the doctors come up on stage to get their diplomas and there was this string group playing because once you are a doctor you cannot like normal music any more. and he got his hood and then sat back down and then they started handing out diplomas all at once, like this guy would say ‘all you people stand up’ and then ‘all you people have a degree now go sit down’ so i went outside and walked around some until they were done.

then there was the second one, and what is that all about.7 it is like the first one did not take so they had to have a second one in case the degree peeled or flaked. that one was in the music building and there was ANOTHER SPEAKER and that was so boring i had to use all caps back there. he went on and on and frankly i was not there to sit through some music guy talk about how unhappy symphony music players are even if he was from harvard which is evidently a good music school except they wear red instead of orange but at least people won’t see where they have been shot by hunters. i got to walk around the building for a while and then go back in to see uncle andy get hooded AGAIN but whatever.

there were all these people congratulating him and then he scooped me up and held me out over the crowd, it was a total lion king moment, which reminds me next time we go on a long car trip and mamamama brings a dvd player she totally has to bring that movie. anyway it was cool because jamie and matt were there, they are fans of mine from way back in october, and it was cool seeing them so i guess the trip was worth it. and aunty joy’s parents were there, that was neat, i hadn’t gotten to see them before. we all went to this restaurant and uncle andy wore his robes, he looked all doctoral. i guess it would be cool to have robes like that. i would wear them around the house and go swooshing around and maybe making my pirate noise because people in doctor robes like that really look scary. unless their robes are that silly red color, i don’t know what harvard is thinking.

but the restaurant was cool, there was this pretty waitress who was flirting with me, she brought me a cup of maraschino cherries which was nice, only it turns out they taste like medicine so never mind. but guys if you had hired me she totally would have been yours.

i did not get a lot of sleep this weekend, we were out at that restaurant until eight or nine, all i know is now i need to go to bed.
