A picture is worth 1,000 posts

QUICKIE: Vincenzo, after I tossed a pair of his undies on his head: “Mom, we don’t throw my undies on people’s heads because my poopy bottom has been in them all day.”

I somehow accidentally zoomed in my computer screen so everything looks like this now.  The Internet seems like an elementary school primer and I am confused by the lack of rhyme and customary set of multiple choice questions that should come at the end of everything I read.  If you or your friends (Dick and Jane, I presume) know how to fix this problem, please send help.  K thx bye.

We now return to our normal blog posting.  Here are a few shots from around the house this past week; hopefully one or two will make you smile.

Vincenzo, pointing his shooter at the TV during a Muppets pirate movie.  He stood there for about 1/2 an hour, then slowly backed his way to the couch, only to jump up and resume position during the next sword fight.


Vincenzo’s new snail watering can.  Something about it seems not right, but I can’t quite figure it out…

I asked Vincenzo to help me make a chore list on Monday.  He had two suggestions…can you tell which ones?


Kevin’s new mouthwash claims to have “6 Benefits in One!” but I’m claiming that because it’s purple, it’s just 6 kinds of wrong.


This is from our trip to the zoo.  I like it because it appears some kid is beating the peacock with a stick.


Vincenzo, missing the mark in trying to look cool.  (They’re upside-down.)

Breakfast for dinner!!

  1. Are you running Vista? Tell Kevin to get with the program if you aren’t ;-)I think your ease of access settings were accidentally changed. Right click on the desktop and choose personalize. When the Personalize Appearance and Sounds window opens,click on ease of access in the bottom left. Scroll down the list a little, and look for the option to Make the computer easier to see. Make sure that Tun on Magnifier is unchecked. Thenk click on the link to change the size of text and icons, make sure that defaul scale (96 DPI) is checked instead of larger scale. If that doesn’t fix things, I’m stuck.

    All Hail the Television! I can’t pry James away these days. He sits with his mouth open and a glazed look in his eyes during his half hour of TV. Granted, he spends the entire day playing at pre-school, but if he starts drooling, I’m tearing the TV off the wall.

    What is it with boys wearing they parent’s dark glasses upside down? I thought it was just a James thing, but no! I’m going to post a picture from Christmas tonight, James is wearing socks on his hands, a bucket on his head, and my dark glasses upside down.

    Enjoy the sun today.

  2. Because I’m old and decrepit, I HAVE to make the words on my computer that big if I want to read anything with out my glasses.

  3. Thanks for the footnote on the last picture in case your readers were so uncool that we couldn’t figure out the problem.

  4. Elizabeth–Yep, we’re Vista. My husband just doesn’t read my blog anymore (something about having a J-O-B, he tells me) so thanks for stepping in! Do you fix dishwashers, too? Because he used to do that.

    Tricia–Then you’re welcome. 🙂

    Casey–I didn’t add the caption to insult my readers’ intelligence but rather to work with it. And by readers’ I mean reader’s, and by reader’s I mean yours specificially.

    Jennifer–A smiley face is worth 1,000 comments, too! Way to run with the theme.

    MrsMouthy–You rock my world! Thanks for all the ROFLcopter rides and for looking so damn sexy all the time!

  5. I missed the Comment Back. I don’t even know if it’s worth it to leave one now…

    I’m going to anyway, because I’m selfless like that.

    However, this is the comment, so I guess I’m not that selfless.

  6. I know just enough computer fixin’ stuff to be dangerous, so I don’t really think you want me touching your dishwasher.

  7. Renee, I don’t think I’ll comment back to you b/c seriously, when’s the last time you commented back on me? Not even on the Sesame Street one. I really want to know!

  8. Hey there! Yes; the snail watering can is indeed wrong. Also: I love Vincenzo’s suggestions on chores. I need more of those types of chores on my lists, too.

    At one point, I did know how to fix the large type issue on a computer. I don’t remember how any longer. If I can find a way, I’ll let you know.
