Random Monday

OK folks, the holiday is over! Time to resume normality, as soon as we can be sure what is normal anyway.

Which reminds me - yesterday was Towel Day - a day to commemorate the amazing Douglas Adams, who gave us Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Vale Douglas Adams - a hoopy frood who really knew where his towel was.

What is the go with kale? Never heard of it up until about a year ago and now the stuff is everywhere! I mean we can even buy it in our crappy supermarkets here, so it's really made the big time. I cannot yet picture how it might taste nice though. Any suggestions to improve on this?

Stolen straight from Wikipedia - I would at least have meat with mine...

This modern-day need to be multi-tasking All. The. Time. has taken a turn for the worse. I mean really?

Digital 2-in-1 iPotty with "Activity Seat" for iPad

I suggest you instead let the kids have a trip down (your) memory lane, with this!

Red hand puppet from Fraggle Rock - go on. You remember!
And I strongly recommend inculculating their brains with the theme song:

Dance your cares away, 

Worry's for another day. 
Let the music play, 
Down at Fraggle Rock. 

Work you cares away, 
Dancing's for another day. 
Let the Fraggles play, 
We're Gobo, Mokey, Wembley, Boober, Red. 

Dance your cares away, 
Worry's for another day. 
Let the music play, 
Down at Fraggle Rock. 
Down at Fraggle Rock. 
Down at Fraggle Rock.

And then make them watch this (part of any kids education):

Have your read any Douglas Adams?
What was the most useless baby toy you bought?
How much do you love Fraggle Rock?


  1. 1) Kale tastes like lawn clippings, but at least if fibrous.

    2) THE iPOTTY? SERIOUSLY? I don't even know where to start. I suppose with the fact that I would never give someone who is learning how to not pee in their pants a $600 diversion. Because THERE WILL BE PEE ON IT.

    3) Hitchhiker's Guide is pure awesome.

    4) oh my gosh, they should call it the iPEED. BWAHAHA!

    1. iPeed - you are hysterical, Deb!!! Go on - you also want to see iPooped in writing, yes?

  2. Ahem. Looking at the aim of most adult men, I would not put my iPad anywhere remotely near the potty!

  3. Oh my i-peed and the i-pooped that was great!

    Okay confession time I have not read Hitchhiker's Guide, I know, I know. Maybe it is time to do so.

    My sister *loved* Fraggle Rock! I was more the Muppets kinda girl.

    No help with the Kale from me either, geez I must be really out of the loop. I have seen Kale chips but I would add mine to smoothies I think with lots and lots of fruit and honey (and maybe some food coloring). :)


Bloggers LOVE comments! We are pretty needy that way, so go on, leave some love :-)

52 Ancestors - Unusual Name

In this week's post, we have been asked to look behind an "unusual name" and I've chosen my great-aunt's husband, Fred...
