Bagels, texted by Mom, Nordic Needle purchase, and Dora the Explorer is now a big sister.

After I spent half of last week thinking about bagels, we went to Einstein Bros. on Saturday morning. We popped into a nearby Tom Thumb swanked out with an in-store sushi bar afterward for a few kiddie staples and checked out with a full hand basket that included ¡Mucha Lucha! fruit snacks and fresh salmon. (ObTrivia: Candi Milo, the voice of The Flea, also voices Dexter of Dexter's Laboratory [since 2001], XJ6 of My Life as a Teenage Robot, and Maya of Maya & Miguel. All hail IMDb, although it's not as much fun as playing Name That Voice Talent with karaksindru.)

I got a text message from my mother on Saturday. If that wasn't strange enough on its own, it read "We're in Las Vegas / Heading to LA." I initially only parsed the first line because I was watching Breaking Vegas on the History Channel. Whee.

I finally really miss the stitch fixer that I lost awhile back, so I ordered another from Nordic Needle. While I was ogling their online catalog, I noticed they have the current version of PCStitch on sale for $32 (20% off its usual price), so I finally bought it.

After hearing adverts all month that Dora the Explorer was going to become a big sister and printing the Big Sister Dora Activity Book from NickJr.com last week to find the last page showed a question mark over a cradle and a message to come back on the 21st for the page to reveal whether it's a boy or girl, I refreshed the page a few minutes ago to find only the first four pages listed now. I guess they won't paste the last page until it's shown in all time zones, but the new episode finished about 15 minutes ago here, so if you're interested, it's fraternal twins, one boy and one girl. As we were watching the end credits, Laurel said, "If I had a baby sister, I'd name her Myron." I asked her to repeat herself slowly and clearly, which she did, adding, "Like Myron who has Hush puppy!" It took me a minute to realize she meant may_lyn. *chuckles*
