Random Monday

• Last Thursday, Big brought over some Lego creation and told me it was a portcullis.

I was mystified.

I said, “what are you talking about? what is that? where did you hear that word?”

He’s all, “it’s a gate thing on a castle” and he showed me a picture of it in his Lego book. But I don’t see that WORD anywhere, and can’t figure out where it came from or if he’s using it right, or if it’s even a word at all. And he couldn’t remember where he heard it, either.

So I googled it.

portcullis – gate consisting of an iron or wooden grating that hangs in the entry to a castle or fortified town; can be lowered to prevent passage.

Uh-Huh. Okay.

I guess that’s it then. My services are no longer needed.

Bring on the bon-bons and Real Housewives!

• I love Pinterest so much that I had Sheila from Blog Designs by Sheila make me a new button. See? Up there on the left? By the Twitter button? Isn’t it cute? If anyone wants any matchy bloggy buttons, send Sheila an email. She always gets back to me in, like, 30 minutes with perfection. And if any of you are on Teh Pinterest, feel free to follow the navel-gazing pinboards of a compulsive pinner!

• We spent the weekend cleaning the house we’ve been in and packing up our stuff. We are heading to Washington state this week! Also, deep cleaning a house that I’ve only half-heartedly swiped at for the last 10 weeks has brought me to a new realization: we are pigs. Gag.

• Happy Monday, y’all!

    When I popped over here to look at your pizza recipe again, I thought that the Pinterest button was new. I’m all observant that way.

    “Are you smarter than a kindergartner?” I guess the answer is no.

    I was hoping you’d make it up to WA, it is so beautiful there. We lived there for 5 years and I miss it terribly. What city are you going to?

    Yay for Washington!! I am so glad that you are going to be here before I leave! Our weather has been of the typical Washington variety.

    I like the Pinterest button. I don’t go over there very much. I just don’t think about it, but I do like the place.

    Enjoy your bon-bons!

    What a little smarty pants!

    Do you watch Atlanta? I don’t normally but I did last night. I need to discuss it with someone.

    Lol! We’re building a castle here right now and I’m getting similar comments from my preschool sidekick. The difference is that I know the source of the sudden vocabulary: he has been climbing in with his big brother at night and demanding to have books about castle life read to him. So apparently I’m not needed either, except to hold the glue together while he goes off to do something else.
