usual exchanges

Youngest (after cleaning his room): Seriously? I found so many pens under my bed. But what's with all the dust under there? It's ridiculous. I mean why under the bed?

K (from another room): dust is afraid of the light.



Meanwhile, in the living room...

bb:  dad and I watched Salt last night. That movie was written for a man and Tom Cruise was going to do it and then backed out, so they re-wrote it for a woman.

Middle: ...

bb: yeah, so lots of jumping from one moving truck to the top of another moving truck...

Middle: off an overpass. Yeah. Seen that done.

bb: I read that Angelina Jolie did her own stunts.

Middle (not looking up from his cereal) yeah, cause  Angelina Jolie actually jumped, or like a stunt person even jumped. I can put YOU in a harness in front of a green screen ya know.

bb: ...


Oldest? He's been texting. He wants a loris.

OMG - I love the loris! Cute beyond words.

Off to show it to the Stooges.
You know, that loris gets wet and we're all screwed.

"dust is afraid of the light"
Classic!
I replaced a 12 year old tv that I hadn't moved...in 12 years. Dust bunnies my ass, those were DUST DRAGONS! Luckly, were afraid of the light!

I know people names Loris so for a moment I thought ...
Then, THAT appeared.
Salt was quite overrated, if you ask me.
Love the loris. It looks like a pretty low-maintenance pet.

My weekend exchanges were
SG: We went to at Mardi Gras at Universal.
CCK: Can I borrow money for 2 new tires?

Your exchanges were better.
Never heard of a loris, but I immediately thought of Dr. Seuss. But that was a Lorax.
Did you tell them that dust is really just dead skin under the bed?

I have always wanted a loris. In Thailand I got to HOLD a loris, and gaze into its moon-eyes. They apparently have poison sacs on their elbows, though, that they lick before biting things, which is why I can't have one. Alas.

What does a Loris eat? Are they legal? Is he gonna get one?!

There is a book sitting on my desk (at work) with the title SALT. I haven't read it, but I'm guessing no relation to the movie because my book is about economics (bluh!).

G is obsessed with golden lion tamarins. I'd like to make that loris a little outfit.

After seeing that video I wanted a loris, too. Until I read the comment about the poison sacs in their elbows. Ewww.
