Miscellany

This girl is growing up, and she's silly.


The doctor thinks my friend has narcolepsy because she can fall asleep within 5 minutes at any given time.  Which seems silly, because do you know anyone with young kids who can't do that?  It's too bad though, because I've always wanted to know someone with narcolepsy.

Have you ever bought vanilla beans?  No, right?  Because they cost like $10.95 each in the spice section?  [People I have given vanilla beans as gifts to: Stop reading here.  Don't worry, I spent lots of money on your present.  Because I care about you.]  Here's my favorite place to get them---they're 1/10th the price, and they're awesome.  You can try all sorts of different types, if you're into that sort of thing.  I also really like the vanilla bean paste.  http://www.beanilla.com/

Also, here is a service I, too, like to provide for others.

  1. Geez, I HATE narcoleptics! Can't we just ship them all to a deserted island so we don't have to even see them?
    I know I don't my kids around any of them.

  2. Beth - bwa-ha-ha-ha.

    Actually we do know somebody with it, and actually? It's kinda dangerous. For him. He fell asleep on his bike once and crashed and damaged his little brain and it was awfully scary there for a while. He asked if he could borrow our horse trailer rig once - ummm. I made G drive it for him.

    So Daisy is silly is she? Well, Fluffy my dear - the apple, they say, doth not fall far from the tree.

  3. So I guess I am narcoleptic too. But it's less than five minutes--more like five seconds, especially when I'm reading to my kids. I know you're supposed to read to them 20 minutes a day . . . what if you're sleeping through most of those minutes? . . .

  4. Whoa, whoa, stop the train. Daisy is NOT a big girl yet. She is a baby. Stop dressing her in clothing that makes her think she is big.

    My uncle has narcolepsy. He often falls asleep during red lights.
