Twitter Weekly Updates for 2011-04-24

  • I'd pay cash on the barrelhead to the person who can tell me what Alice means by "ahkoon". #SMAtuS #
  • Taught Max 3 rules of scissor safety. Asked him to repeat them to me. He extrapolated about 15 rules from my 3. "Do not cut nose." #SMAtuS #
  • I've gotten inexplicably clumsy. Crashing into doorways, tripping over imaginary dead turtles, dropping foodstuffs and bags, etc. #SMAtuS #
  • Apparently, Max hates it when people say "perfectimundo". I don't know why, but he said it three times, so it must be true. #SMAtuS #
  • Might be time to think about cutting back on the sugar… #
  • TENDER MORSELS by Margo Lanagan: Those who are good are very very good, and those who are bad are horrid. Plus Old Testament-style judgment. #
  • Wow, @onestarwar, I didn't think your profile icon could get any better. Boy was I ever wrong! #
  • @RipOffRed @margolanagan Ah, sweet irony. But I was thinking more about the eye for an eye bit. Also, getting eaten by bears. in reply to RipOffRed #
  • @RipOffRed @margolanagan Also, no need to defend. I *liked* the book. :) in reply to RipOffRed #

  • @margolanagan Thanks! (So does my 1.5 year old daughter. :) Who I hope will be reading books like yours when she's older. in reply to margolanagan #

  • Sarah asked Max what his favorite thing about today was. He pointed to her and said, "You." All together now: Awwwwww. #SMAtuS #

  • As Sarah was carrying Alice inside from the car, she pointed to the sky and said, "Alice back out!" #SMAtuS #
  • @chowderino Congratulations! I'm basically doing the same thing as I sit here looking out the window… in reply to chowderino #
  • @HillaryJacques It'll probably take me another ten years at least. :) Not bad for an illiterate! #DidIsaythatoutloud in reply to HillaryJacques #
