So when Yukomicon promises to deliver Marina Sirtis (AKA Deanna Troi) to my doorstep - I buy tickets. Three tickets( since we must pass on Next Gen to the next gen). Also the voice over for Tuxedo Mask was coming. Perhaps less of a draw but cult pop culture enough to entice me.
I was super impressed with what geeky weekend this small town can deliver! Personally I am almost convinced to sign up for Yukon's full contact medieval fighting group- and I mean full contact. The only thing you can't do is thrust cause that might kill.
"Is Ysabeau a fighting type? I think she is."
"Because she seems powerful."
Oh yes she does.
That's why we had to bring her home when she started getting pissed off that she wasn't joining the Mario Kart tournament with the other 6 to 42 year old men.
And Ysabeau now speaks the language of Pokemon power. While brushing teeth this morning she says to me;
"You have the power of Elsa and I have the power of Olaf". [The Mexican is always comparing powers of Pokemon critters].
I hope that means she thinks ice fires from my fingers when I am angry.
The Mexican has been enjoying a Spanish reading group, flying kites and playing with friends. He has the habit of getting super philosophical at the dinner table. He was building a fort in a friend's yard with their boys. It was quite the set up. At dinner he was reflecting on it and mused;
"Our fort....it was amazing. It was like what I imagine to be a perfect world.". Well if the world goes Pete Tong I know that all he needs to be happy is a few pieces of wood, some lawn chairs and a flag.
It took some bribary, some movie watching in the bathroom. But we have had about 3 full days SANS diapers. I just put her in dresses without undies everyday and she seems to know when she needs to go.
She still needs them at night. I am trying to use cloth diapers but Ian thinks she might be a bit uncomfortable.....
After giving a great big smile like this he always gets so excited that he looks away as though if he kept on smiling he might combust with happiness.
