Talking to strangers

The cashier at Wegman's asked, "What's your name?"

"Arianna," says Arianna.

"How old are you?" asked the cashier.

"Got shoes," says Arianna.

"Yes, those are very nice shoes you have."

Pointing to the clerk's shoes, "Got nice shoes."

"Thank you!"

(If anyone figures out how shoes are related to age, please let me know.)

Later, at the playground, Arianna got nervous around some noisy kids. Daddy said, "There's nothing to be afraid of." We are working on our bravery and this is our latest mantra.

After watching the kids for awhile, Arianna got up to play and said matter-of-factly, "There's nothing to be afraid of."

Gee, brainwashing really does work. Thank you Vygotsky.

After soaking a load of diapers, I put them in the drier after they spun out -- totally forgetting that I never washed them. Um, yuck.

And while we're on the subject of non sequiturs, I TOTALLY didn't see that ending coming for the season finale of Alias.

who will be celebrating her tenth wedding anniversary with Andrew on Friday.
We are planning to see Revenge of the Sith. We geeks really know how to party!
