Those of you with SmartPhones understand how addicting some of the apps can be, like Angry Birds. Until I got a SmartPhone, I had no idea why those birds were so angry. Now I do. They really should have been called Addicting Angry Birds.
Speaking of Angry Birds, remember how I ordered an Angry Birds costume for Princess Nagger since that’s what she wants to dress up as for Halloween? If you missed that, here’s a picture from the site where I ordered it:
To get it all poofy like that (you know, to make her looked like a stuffed Angry Bird…wait, that doesn’t sound quite right…) it came with an extra piece that will hold two standard pillows – one in the front and one in the back, all conveniently stowed under the outer part of the costume. The material ‘pockets’ look rather small for actual standard pillows, so I might pick up stuffing and just stuff the pockets and be done with it – plus then Princess Nagger’s pillows won’t get dirty. Don’t worry, I’ll be taking pictures of her actually wearing it at some point.
See how the face of the face of the human is showing through? Should I paint Princess Nagger’s face yellow so she’ll ‘blend in’ as it were, or just leave her face au naturale?
Speaking of yellow, last week Princess Nagger received her very first bee sting ever. I remember getting my first when I was four years old, running around our backyard barefoot and stepped on one. Luckily there are no allergies to bees in our family, so her getting a bee sting wasn’t a big deal. But the conversation about it was chuckle-worthy:
PN (immediately after getting off the bus): “Well, it took 8 years.”
Me: “What took 8 years?”
PN: “To find out if I’m allergic to bees or not!”
Me: “Well, I already knew you’re not allergic, neither me or Dada are allergic, so chances of you being allergic were very slim. Why?”
PN (holding up her arm): “Because I got stung today – see?”
Me: “Oh, bummer! Did it hurt?”
PN: “Of course it hurt! First I felt something on my butt, and when I went to brush it off, it stung my wrist instead.”
Me (trying not to laugh): “Did your butt get stung too?”
PN: “No, I was too fast for him, so he got my wrist instead. Then I smashed him to pieces. Literally.”
Me (not able to control the giggles): “I’m sorry you got stung.”
PN: “It hurts! And itches! Stupid bee. Totally ruined my lunch recess.”
Stupid bee indeed.
That concludes this week’s randomness in a not-so-very-random way, but at least possibly entertaining. Link up and do the random thing – be sure to visit the fellow rebelers and see what’s rattling around in their random brains. Rebel on!
Don’t forget to leave a comment when you link up, it’s the polite thing to do!
We’re still rebelling while Keely is still hiatus-ing (and maybe, just maybe she might be making an illustrious return soon), if you have a smorgasbord in your brain and want to let it out, c’mon and join in the fun! Rebel On!
(Right-click is working again! Now your life will be easier. I’m just sayin’.)
