My five year old at his group piano lesson last week

Jun. 22nd, 2018 | 12:47 am

Brooks: "How old are you?"

Friend's little brother: "I'm four."

Brooks: "Four. I remember being four."

#The kids' grandmother cracked up #'He remembers being four...six months ago!'

#Brooks is now almost 5.5 years old #and he'll be six by the end of the year
#asakflfladlllllsfj #when did that happen ;______;

On the color scarlet

Jul. 7th, 2017 | 01:58 am

Brooks, 4.5 years old: "This is red with a bit of orange."

Me: "Oh wow, you're right. I never noticed the orange before."

Husband: "...let's send him to art school."

#Brooks #Things my kid says #scarlet #River didn't really know his colors until age four #Brooks learned colors mostly through YouTube #whoops
#YouTube is now banned in our house because of the increasingly random (and inappropriate) videos the kids watch #*shrugs* #I probably should've banned/limited it earlier

At least I'm not 30 yet?

As of this morning, I finally have my first driving license ever.

The only time I was ever interested in driving was when I was thirteen, after learning that my 14-y.o. friend was driving around with a fake driving license*. My mom (wisely) didn't want to get a fake license for me, and I promptly lost interest.

For the last eight years or so, I've practiced driving on and off. By which I mean a few weeks' practice with long months stretching in between =P

I got 82/100 (Passing grade is 80) and tanked parallel parking. Also, you're supposed to turn your steering wheel to the right instead of the left when parking uphill with no curb present. Good to know.

If only fast, clean, reliable public transit is universal. Yay for passing!

* I grew up in S.E. Asia. It’s a thing. We pay someone to queue for us, and that guy will then bribe the government officials to expedite things, and we only show up when it’s time to sign the document. Trufax.

Obligatory Hiatus Post

Due to (happy!*) rl events, I'll be away for the next two months-ish.

Contacting me via e-mails or comments are the best way to go, although I can't promise a timely response. (PMs are not as convenient because I'll need to log in first to see your message).

* Those curious and who don't read me on LJ can just ask me.


I only have two non-spoilery things to say about The Hobbit (which I watched Friday morning):
1) I'm glad I was forewarned; otherwise I'd be "???" throughout the movie.
2) Finding two dwarves (separately and/or together) attractive is just WRONG. Okay not as wrong as finding house-elves attractive. I am, of course, referring to Thranduil and Kili.

I'm looking forward to the NuTrek sequel with Villain!BenedictCumberbatch AAaaaaahhh ahhhhhhhh new haircuuuuuttt *INCOHERENT*.


Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Chrismukkah, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! =DDD
