Monday Links

Big Kid starts violin lessons tomorrow. We rented his violin on Saturday, and it is so cute and little and perfect. I'm looking forward to seeing how lessons go. Mr. Ashley is less than enthused about this whole thing, so Big Kid better love it and sound good soon so that I can prove him wrong.

Other than that, I don't have any other big news or insight to share. little kid may have flushed the metal bar of the toilet paper holder, and that's a big problem. He says he flushed it, but I don't know if he was just sick of us making him search for it or if that's really what happened. Last week the tray for the ice/water on the fridge door was missing but he finally found it and reinstalled it after we complained enough.

I begged for Sims 3 all weekend, finally got it, and can't get it to run on any of our computers. Good times, good times.

This post is clearly going nowhere, here's some internetz to make up for the boringness:

Surviving the World: Some of these crack me up. I think everyone should review lesson #8.
Make Slime: Because you need more things ground into the carpet.
Tropical fruit crepes: Sound pretty freaking good.
Medieval names: In case you want to write a book or name something or are just a history dork.
Radioactive Boyscout: I hope to God neither of my kids ends up being this smart.
Free Classic audio books: Pretty awesome, could be great for long car trips or while cleaning.
Calvin and Hobbes: Thought provoking and so true.

Um, yeah, I would keep Big Kid playing the violin and away from the Boy Scouts...Little Kid? He'll be lucky if they don't kick him out!

You may think when he first starts practicing that you'd like to "accidentally" back over that violin with your car, but it could earn him some big college scholarships someday. I was pretty mediocre violinist, but I received 1/2 my tuition each year just for playing in the school's orchestra. Good luck!

I'm pretty sure that David kid needs to be locked up. I would be scared of him. What the hell did he need a radioactive gun for?

You're not missing anything on the Sims 3. There's so much shit on it that it's slower than molasses. Not only that, but all the sims look bloated in the fact, and they all look the same.

On the upside, there are a lot of new features. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to try them out due to the slowness.

I don't think Sims 3 is that slow. It's not as bad as Sims 2 was with the expansion packs and it doesn't take up nearly as much room. It runs fine on my Mac. Ashley, you may need a newer computer or one with more space. :( Anyway, your Sims can use fertility drugs and have multiples after multiples. It's like Jon & Kate without the hate!

All in a day's work, right? Did Little Kid lose the toilet paper holder thing while changing the roll? If so, I am very impressed you've trained offspring to do that.
