While taking a quick look at Simplicity's website for a link I wanted to include in a comment yesterday, I noticed on their front page that they've added toddler sizes to their Lizzie McGuire Collection.

In particular, patterns 4522 and 4563 have sizes 6 months to girls' 6. Laurel and I looked at the pattern envelope fronts on the website and she loves the skirts in 4563, so I'll add it to my running list of patterns to consider when Simplicity patterns are on sale.  4721 has cute dresses in a size range that would allow me to make matching mother/daughter dresses... *thinks* Maybe not.


Vogon picked out a movie Laurel and I really enjoyed watching together: Fat Albert. He was surprised that I'd loved the cartoon so much (don't know why he was, but hey) and picked up a DVD of the cartoons for me to watch when he returned the two-day rentals from Sunday.


Does anyone else find the 30-inch burrito story hysterically funny? I didn't even see it mentioned on the local news here, but they're usually too busy repeating the top stories several times and talking about sports. If I could customize TV news for what I'd like to see, sports coverage would... well, never mind. I would have laughed myself sick if any of the local news anchors had said "a school went into lockdown after a possible weapon sighting that turned out to be a 30-inch burrito...". The targeted advertisements following that story would have to be from Chipotle and Freebirds (one of their shirts reads "unwrap my monster"). Hee.

You know, on the topic of daughters that bear an uncanny resemblance to their mothers....

Someone at work told me about a ghost story about a band of gypsies that supposedly haunts Augusta, Georgia. She said that they're mostly women seeking men for ... umm... limited time engagements and the children those kind of relations produce. She said they were really really really creepy though. She said they all dressed like they were in a '60's beauty pageant, and made their daughters look exactly the same.

It took me a minute, but when I finally got the wayback machine engaged, I remembered going to some kind of supermarket out there years ago and seeing a couple of groups (one with 2 daughters, one with 3) that looked like blonde-haired Jackie Onassis [would that be that 'Onasses?']), and the mother and all of the daughters were wearing the exact same dress (conservative 60's styling), from the exact same fabric, just in different sizes. All of the accessory stuffices looked exactly the same too.

I saw no men or boys with either of those groups. Just mothers and their daughters. And I saw both groups at the same store at the same time in different checkout counter lines.

My senior weirdness correspondent adds: "Was it a Sunday that you saw this?"

My reply: "I don't remember, I was/am too drunk." On the real, it was a long ass time ago. I had no car at the time and lived too far away from the city, so a trip to town came about as frequently as Sundays.

Her closing remark: "You ain't seen nothin till you seen Mennonites. They're like the Amish, but they shop at Wal-Mart and drive school busses for some reason. I kid you not."

Anthropological notes:
Mennonite men wear old, western style suits and stetson hats. Women wear brown and white polka-dotted colonial era dresses. Don't bring your grandparents, or they will ask so many odd, embarrassing questions that you will learn (for the rest of your life) not to stare... If you should choose to stare, please take pictures and email them to me. I have not personally witnessed their weirdness.

Wierdness factor: Listnening to: BT: Ima CD1: Loving You More (BT's Final Spiritual Journey).

Good song, but Next Track. So far, the CD's been good (all in all).

"Unwrap my monster?" If I start that saying at work, the quote won't die until it has conquered teh entire internet at least twice :)
