5 Things I Think, June 20th

1) I think that was a pretty good first Father's Day. No foam fighting on this Sunday, but an Airsoft event in the rain. Not a bad time spent. Had a dinner of sushi take-out, and Little Danger got fish for the first time (though cooked). The Tilapia sent him into a fish frenzy, two-fisted face stuffing that inspired giggles all around. I was gifted the 3rd season of Deadwood on DVD, which I suppose will allow me to teach him to curse properly, in iambic pentameter.

2) I think I'm going to have to start pissing Little Danger off late at night to avoid things being pissed on. He's been crazy about sucking down whatever's in his sippy cup, water or milk, and asking for it frequently. I am a zombie today due to a 5 am wakeup to a crying child wet all over. He'd flooded the diaper past its ability to contain the deluge, and half of the crib had to be shut down to all sleeping traffic due to excessive wet. I didn't really achieve sleep again, and the sleep deprivation has left me as off-kilter as Sheen, without the trackmarks. Is it possible to OD on coffee?

3) I think the weather needs to start cooperating. We've started painting the non-stone portions of the house, but the rain keeps postponing the operation so that it crawls along in tiny increments. I finally know what if feels like to work on road construction...if we add orange barrels, our perpetual behind schedule experience would be complete. On the plus side, it's good for the garden.

"These snap peas are yummy." (Or as he said it, GAPF!!!)

4) I think it's going to be one hell of a season of "So You Think You Can Dance" (the rare reality show I actually like.) In the words of Nigel, they're beasts this year. Holy crap. Any of them could get a paid gig tomorrow. If you don't watch this show and you like the art of dance, you should rectify the not watching. Beasts.

5) I think I'm going to ask you all for a bit of a helping hand for a great project. It's much like the "It Gets Better" project, but geared toward a broader target, and meant to combat teen suicide. Here's the link to the funding site, please look at it, and if you agree, then share it. CLICK HERE. Send it far and wide. This is another one of those chances to leave the world a little better than we found it. Let's do that, OK? (I'll be doing a post with more details on this soon, but I wanted to get this out quicker than slower.)

Stay awesome, everybody. Do something great today.
Happy Monday!
