Yours, Mine, and Ours

So lately Elijah’s gotten to understand possessives, I do believe. He doesn’t say “mine” or “Elijah’s” or anything, yet he runs around the house and labels everything “Mommy’s” or “Daddy’s.” For instance, apparently the satellite/tv remote is mine but the dvd player remote is Steve’s. He knows Daddy’s books and pens for school and he knows Mommy’s computer stuff.

However, he’s about to drive me crazy. Apparently, the travel diaper wipes container is “Me-maw’s” and he refuses to leave it alone. He seems to think that because it’s not Mommy’s or Daddy’s but Me-maw’s that he has all rights to it while she’s away. No matter where I put it, he seems to find it and start the process of drying out the wipes.

He’s. Driving. Me. Crazy. Today.

Video Professor Wha-Ha?

This commercial cracks me up every time. It starts with a voice over saying something like, “what do you know about computers?” Or something like that. They show this woman who says:

My daughter definitely knows how to use a computer better than me half the time… and she’s three!

So, how much “better” does “definitely” and “half the time” equal? Are you as confused as I am?

Touring America

So, yes, I am home now. However, all of my yesterday was spent traveling home. Seriously. Four states in about twelve hours because, apparently, my brother is incapable of taking the same route home that he took to go somewhere. First of all, we slept in entirely too late, but thankfully not too late for check-out. He informs me as we’re getting packed up that we are taking a different route and that he knows exactly what he’s doing. Riiiiight.

Four States in Twelve Hours

The yellow was our route out there on Tuesday night, the green was pretty much what we took going home. Yes, it was nutty.

Mechanical Contrivium

So I had to copy off of Glasshoppah once I saw my results:

1. Olympic badminton rules say that valerie must have exactly fourteen feathers.
2. Long ago, the people of Nicaragua believed that if they threw valerie into a volcano it would stop erupting!
3. In the 1600s, tobacco was frequently prescribed to treat headaches, bad breath and valerie.
4. Apples are covered with a thin layer of valerie.
5. 99 percent of the pumpkins sold in the US end up as valerie!
6. India tested its first nuclear valerie in 1974!
7. Valerie can squeeze her entire body through a hole the size of her beak.
8. Valerieolatry is the mindless worship of valerie!
9. Valerie is the world’s largest rodent!
10. American Airlines saved forty thousand dollars a year by eliminating valerie from each salad served in first class.
