No choice. First one up was The Rock Star. How could I not bite?
1) More dog sleeping positions here.
2) This is actually not funny, but if you had a crappy week you might need 5 Scientist Screwups To Remember Next Time You Bungle Something. I like the one where they thought they were testing sheep brains for 5 years and they were actually cow brains. (No, not really. These are the guys who’ll someday (we hope) cure cancer or mad cow?) Talk about no brain…
3) So you think you know your Olympics trivia well enough to talk to your kids. I got 6 out of 10. Expected to do worse. Lucky guesses. You could just tell your kids these two baby cheetahs at the Smithsonian National Zoo in D.C. are going to be name after the fastest sprinters at the Olympics 2012. Every athlete’s dream. Nike who?
Rockstar came home from camp asking what the Olympics were, yesterday. We’d also recently scored Mr Men Sports Day, at Bookazine in Prince Building (and there we thought we had every Mr Men/ Little Miss book in the series). So I explained it as Nonsenseland vs Loudland vs Goodland etc all competing in various sporting events. But with real countries like the States, Australia, Malaysia etc. I’m mildly surprised Rockstar didn’t ask me about a Lego event at the Olympics, but then we’ve mostly run out of Lego to buy (he only likes the vehicle, McQueen and comic book hero ones for up to 8+ years of age. 9 and up he still requires more help. And too bad he doesn’t really like Lego Technic because a lot of the pieces are too tight/ his hands aren’t strong enough to put them together on his own).
Almost to the weekend – Yippee!
