Contest for the Most Unrelated Series of Content

My sister was interested in a videogame called Beautiful Katamari. (Aside: If you really must know, see the Wikipedia link. It has a Japanese storyline involving a tennis ball ripping a hole into the fabric of the universe and needing to repair it by rolling objects into an every increasing ball of stuff. Returning to my not-so-important point now.)

SwingDaddy went online to order it, and I thought I kept hearing him say, "Beautiful Calamari" and imagined cute little squids curling their eyelashes and giving each other pedicures. I was sad to find that it wasn't about calamari after all.

I have to write this one down because the little dude has almost lost the habit of calling arachnids by the name of "eensy weensy spider." Last week, I was packing my lunch in the kitchen, and I heard Q say, "It's an eensy weensy spider!" and go tearing off to his room. He returned moments later with a wet wipe, picked up the spider, and put it in the trash.

He doesn't seem to differentiate actual size with the adjectives though. It wasn't all that long ago that I was looking out his window while he was sorting the stuffed animals in his crib. He suddenly bolted to the other side of the crib, calling, "Eensy weensy spider!" and shaking his arm. I saw a HUGE spider on the wall and decided that I wasn't up to evacuating it, so I picked up Q and evacuated us from his room instead.

He's started calling them just plain old "spiders" now though. It was cute while it lasted.

In other randomness, I have to protest my current roll of paper towels. It looks just like all the other Bounty towels that were in the twelve-pack, but it's secretly an agent of frustration. It might as well not have perforations at all, because then I wouldn't get annoyed when the towels keep tearing in a location completely unrelated to the alleged perforation.

Maybe you need to create the beautiful calamari game!

Okay, I'm putting my foot down and saying no to any video game involving squid.

Especially giant ones.
