We went out the door to drop him off at trax, and despite the possibility of arriving on time, the dumb arrow at 7720 screwed us over again. He was running toward the train, and it took off without him. (the whole scenario seemed to happen in slow motion) (almost as good as the time he made the train but had to get off cause as he jumped out of the car he dropped his tie on the street)
I drove him downtown and we listened to X96. It's actually the best time to listen because they do "Boner of the Day." Boner means mistake.
Today the second candidate was a cleaning lady at an art museum who scrubbed down a million dollar art piece from Germany because she thought it looked dirty. Makes my stomach lurch just thinking about it.
I just got home and I looked around the kitchen for something to have for breakfast. I spotted the carton of eggs in the fridge and decided to make myself some dunky ones since Taylor won't eat them that way.
I saw the egg pan on the stove...
ENCRUSTED WITH PREVIOUS EGG REMAINS.
I took it over to the sink to scrub it down and I thought,
"This is not my job."
So I put it back. And decided not to have eggs for breakfast.
I decided I'd look and see if any of the cereals in the swirly cupboard were either A) not stale or B) not from the 90's..
We had a grand total of Wheat Chex, Grape Nuts, and Blueberry Special K. all stale.
I spotted a few
and identified the BEST BY date on the flap of each box.
Six boxes expired in 2004, one expired in 2002, and the last one expired in 2008.
I almost trusted that last one before I realized that breakfast is for squares.
I registered for Spring Semester at SLCC last night. Kind of excited for that.
I have tons of homework due tomorrow that I just remembered about.
One of my assignments is to do an artist research report on someone non-photographic. Everyone in class is picking Georgia O'Keefe or that dude with the scrubbed down sculpture from Germany.
I'm picking Dr. Seuss.
Did you know that he never actually had any children of his own? He would always say,
"You have 'em, I'll entertain 'em."
Something else, none of his books were ever awarded a Caldecott or Newbury award. One was nominated, but that's it. Despite this fact: his books are still outselling the majority of newly published children's books.
His quote, "A person's a person, no matter how small" in its original context is completely unrelated to abortion issues.
I'm excited for this assignment. :)
I just heard Grandpa scrub the egg pan upstairs...
I think I'll have breakfast.
PS: Here's a halloween photo for the road.
