Strange hippie

This is one of Orange's nifty disguises when she "spies" on Daddy. She looks pretty good with black hair which is nice to know if someday she goes through that teenage goth phase...

Orange & Ocean, January 2010

Dear Orange,
I love the way you say "besep" in lieu of "except." I love how you draw cute little aliens all over the place and your corresponding evolution theory that humans are aliens. I love how you read the yellow pages just for fun, especially the restaurant pages. I love how you periodically ransack the recycle bin for your art projects. I love how you are constantly creating things. I love how you call graveyards "gravy gardens," avocados "apple-cados" and pita bead "cheetah bread"! I love how you absolutely, truly believe you saw Santa last Christmas...

Dear Ocean,
I love the way you dance. I love the way you kiss your own boo-boo's. I love the way you flush the toilet. Repeatedly. I love the way you say "I love you" ("Iwuvuu") with half the sign (you point one finger like E.T.). I love the way you can already cut with scissors. I love how excited you get when it's time to change Beasley's cage...

Harvard Museum of Natural History

We went to the HMNH on Sunday. It was fun~ lots of bones and creatures...including this "Chinese water deer," which I find somewhat disturbing (what does a innocent looking deer need with 6" fangs?! I've got to google that)!
Our friends got Ocean this wonderful blue dress in Vietnam.

The oil cleansing method

I bought some caster oil and jojoba oil so I can start this regimen tomorrow. As someone prone to breakouts, I am a bit wary of dosing my face with oil but a lot of people really swear by it. And it would be a relief to do away with the myriad of facial products (and their unpronounceable ingredients!). I'll let you know how it goes!
wash your face with oil!

Would you like a little white ass with that 1974 bathroom?

I picked up this home design book for $1 at our local library because nostaladdict that I am, I love all 70's products, including myself. Looks innocent, enough, right? Until you get to page 309 and find little miss white ass (and wow, that is a tiny ass, definitely not an ass from this decade) nonchalantly showering in her modern bath. And then, lo and behold, what do I find in the bedrooms section? Here we find little miss, clad only in granny panties, lounging around with her male companion, drinking strong alcoholic drinks (I can make this assumption because hey! it's the 70's), watching a "movie" (what kind of movie is that?!) with their modern movie projector (although her companion seems to be watching something else). And notice that funky modern art...who wouldn't want a HUGE ass on their bedroom wall? I wonder if LMWA modeled for that?
In the 70's, it was so totally groovy to hang out nude and maybe have an S&M fantasy lair for a bedroom...

It's 2010!

Wow, that just sound sooo futuristic, doesn't it? I remember listening to Prince in the mid-80's and thinking 1999 was soo far away and here it is a decade later, crazy!
We went downtown on New Year's Eve Day for big bowls of noodle soup & spring rolls (I would highly recommend this place, everything was fresh & delicious) in Chinatown & to stop and see the ice sculptures.
Today Cory took Orange sledding at the "sugar bowl". We found this super-cool blow-up sled (called "The Wedge" lol) in someone's trash last year (brand new!)...
