Mom's in China

I'm used to calling her on my way to work every night, so if you get phone calls from me around that time, you know I'm missing her. ;)

Anyway, she's got email access at my brother's, so tonight's update is taken from my correspondence with her.

Meanwhile, back in America, Tigger got a phone call from a girl today. Her name was G, and she wanted to know something about Social Studies. He said she sits at the same desk as he does in class. He's an A+ social studies student, so that probably has something to do with why she called him, too. ;)

Critter has found a buyer for his iPod Mini - $50 and a batch of cookies. Why yes, the buyer IS a girl. I was amused. Critter is putting the money toward the iPod we are planning to buy for Flar for Christmas. I will be putting the proceeds from selling my old laptop to the same purpose. We have gotten Knight and Ro to agree to go in on it, and Critter is going to hit up approach Brody and Bébé this weekend.

It's Critter's birthday (obs.)

Being born on a national holiday warps your vocabulary. Critter got breakfast out of me this morning, and a movie this evening, with the cuteness of "but it's my birthday, observed." Breakfast: a grand slam, the home version. He didn't have time to eat all of it, so Flar (back from taking Tigger to school) had the pancakes and I finished off his eggs. Note to self: stock has browns - they're easy to cook and disappear fast.

Tomorrow, we're going to the Outback Steakhouse for his actual birthday. And then I think Flar and Tigger are making him a gourmet meal on Sunday.
