The latest tack on potty-training: five minutes in the pool for each potty use. We put a small sticker on the calendar for each use and in the afternoon, she gets to go swimming for the earned time. Today she got fifteen minutes in the pool and will hopefully earn another ten before bedtime. *crosses fingers*

She loves the new swimming bag -- a grocery-sack style bag (I'm still working out the bugs, so most of them are muslin) in a large-scale fish print I had a remnant of large enough for two bags. I'm thinking about ripping out the serged finish around the edges and finishing them with the sewing machine since I need a lot more experience serging around curves before they look half decent.

I need to draw the line on no animal behavior other than noises. We've been working on not licking (she licks people, her toys, tables and counters, etc. despite regular reminders otherwise), but today I caught her after she dumped a handful of tortilla chips on the floor and was preparing to eat them off the floor. Later, she tried to throw her beach towel over the cat. *sighs*

I'm thinking of making a GIR icon for Laurel posts. Picked up a bunch of screenshots but the one for "Let's make biscuits!" (ep. "Planet Jackers") wasn't as crisp as I'd like. I'm debating whether to make one of my own since we currently have the volume of episodes it's on checked out from Blockbuster. Suggestions welcome.

I love how useful muslin is. (I was a theatre techie)

*nods* Right now, I buy more muslin than any other kind of fabric.

Did you do anything specific as a techie? I did lighting and occasionally helped with costumes. I would have loved to learn prop making or set building, but there's always time for that once I go back to school.

Lighting, set building, stage managing, and directing a few times.
