This week is getting stranger and stranger. Maybe it's related to the start of school here? More bizarreness:

I woke up this morning to what I thought was the cat grooming my foot. I opened my eyes to Vogon kissing my foot. He said it was the only part of me not wrapped up in blanket. (I tend to sleep like a human burrito.)

Over lunch as Panda Express, we were reading our fortune cookie fortunes with "in bed" added to the end. I read Laurel's and told her "not until you're 18!", then handed it to Vogon to read. The fortune: "Your most memorable dream will come true." For posterity, mine was "Be tactful, do not overlook your own opportunities." Vogon's was "You are imaginative in using your skills," which reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Homer writes fortune cookie fortunes.

After failing to satisfy Laurel with fruit snacks (she'll eat them until she gets the trots and had her limit for the day), she made faces at me while I walked away from the table. Not watching my feet, I learned that wooden train set and toes hurts like a bugger. When I sat down to give them a break -- and I'm not making this up -- Biko winked at me, then came over and rubbed her face against my knee. I love that cat.

I remember once when I was sick, all I would drink was apple juice, not knowing that it gives you the trots if you drink too much of it. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't stop pooping. DUH.

*nods* Whenever we buy apple juice juiceboxes for Laurel, we limit her to one a day to make sure she doesn't get the trots. I learned that the hard way when she was just starting to walk and I got canned Juicy Juice with our WIC vouchers.

...ah, man, Caillou on DVD? What have you, what have you, what have you done to deserve that?

Our local Blockbuster's children's selection is much wider on tape than DVD and we're between VCRs. I don't remember if I blogged last month about how I'd get sound but no video when I'd put a tape in -- I thought it was a cabling problem but upon dissection, I found Laurel had put a penny in it.

Anyway, our closest Blockbuster's children's rental DVDs consist mostly of Disney movies, followed by movies based on children's shows and children's show compilations. This week's rental picks were the aforemention Caillou DVD and Rolie Polie Olie: Baby Bot Chase. You can guess which is the lesser of two evils lately.

Wow.. still, though.... Caillou. Man. I can't fucking stand that little bald son of a bitch. Man.

I am sorry for you.

My mantra: It goes back on Friday.

On a related note, what's a good source for animation on DVD that she should see that accepts PayPal?

I haven't tried the paypal side of things, but Digital Eyes says they accept it, and they're really great. Their prices are hell of cheap, free shipping, and the more you buy, the more "Frequent Buyer Points" you get, which lead to discounts. (Uh, I don't know how much that one will do for you, but as a person who has little sense when it comes to buying DVDs, it _rocks_ for me.) And theyactually have a pretty large anime selection. I assume it sort of applies to normal animation as well. But yeah, they're pretty fast -- the only downside is to cancel an order, you have to actually call them -- but the one time I did that, the guy was _really_ nice, so... yeah.

I've bookmarked the site. I don't buy many DVDs at the moment but I have a sizable running list of DVDs I'd like to buy when I can afford them, so most frequent customer programs are great by me. (:
