Nukes, Yanks & Funky Booyah

For the past couple of years I've been downing about a book a week. Then I found Orvil in the garage and now I'm dropped to about a book a month. I can literally feel my few remaining neurons disengaging.

Here's the new Orvil vid:

Orvil Deals With Some Unsolicited Lovin'.

Inspired by the two frame per second brain-death-inducing power of "Mighty Hercules," Orvil the Orange is back to vie for the title of crappiest-animation-ever.

So hit the little play button below and check out Orvil's other half's other half (and a tip of the hat to my favourite action-hero missionary hipster).

Food Fight

I've slacked on exercise for a few weeks. I also had a little "food rebellion" last week and got off my plan ... so I flat-lined this month: I've lost a grand total of 000 pounds since the last weigh-in. Pretty special, I know.

I've still got 12 to go to reach my goal by the new year.

If I don't do it, please don't forget to beat me up, reject me thoroughly or lock me in a hermetically-sealed food-proof room.

Spammers Begone!

I managed to make it through many months without having my blog spammed ... until tonight (3 stupid "make money at home" comment spams). So I've enabled moderation of comments. Go ahead and comment as you normally would. It'll just take a little longer for your comments to appear as I now have to approve them.

Waterproofed Old Ladies

A couple of days ago toddlerX2 climbed up their bookshelf to the very top shelf during "nap" time. Once up there, they retrieved a bottle of Vaseline and proceeded to use all of it's contents on themselves from head to foot. They used most of it on their hair! After two showers and numerous strategies, we finally discovered that corn starching their hair before showering them works.

Emily and Kaylee spent most of last night running around with white hair saying, "I'm an old lady! I'm an old lady! I'm an old lady!"

It's amazing how much energy the elderly have.

The 2XCute Tornado

On Sunday we were visiting the church we attend when we are out at Rosen Lake. It's a Baptist Church with a fair bit of gray hair. Just before communion was served, Kaylee sat on my lap and began playing with the buttons of my shirt. The Pastor started to lead the congregation in prayer, so I closed my eyes. When I opened them, my entire shirt was unbuttoned and open! And the Pastor and two of his henchmen where up front looking back at me! (Thanks Kaylee).

Here are a few E & K quotes from the last few days:

"This backpack from China isn't broken!"

"You're a boy baby, so you've got a beard."

After explaining to Emily that she can't have a baby until after she falls in love with a man and gets married, she turned to Kaylee and asked, "Kaylee, will you be my man?" (Kaylee said, "yes.")

Overheard coming from their room shortly after they woke up: " When I put this on my head it still works!" Response: "Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!"

Orvil's Mailbag

Orvil's been picking up a few views lately ... enough that I felt motivated to waste more of my precious free time animating him yet again. So here he is answering his mail (Warning: Orvil's mouth is a little looser than mine, so you might not want to share this vid with toddlers ... especially my toddlers).

If you're a MySpacer, go make friends with Orvil:
Orvil's Myspace page

Bonus points to you if you pick up any of the three hidden messages at the end of this video (I'm trying to get a little "viral" with Orvil).
