Spring Break

Yes, it's that most wonderful time of the year - - - when scores of co-eds across this great land head to assorted coastal towns in order to make poor choices.

Why is this relevant in a blog about a short fat dictator, you may ask?  Well, for me, it means that I have my nieces visiting from Chicago for the week.   For you, it means that this entry will be short to the point of existing - almost not at all.

A brief update:  

  • In the past week I have managed to commit exactly zero larcenies.  For those keeping track this represents a 100% improvement from the week before!  I am currently accepting congratulatory gifts in the form of paypal, if you feel so inclined.
  • The Snoods is furiously attempting to crawl.  He now is able to get forward motion and get his entire body off the ground.  His seemingly endless frustration stems from the fact that he is not able to do both of these things at the same time.  My relationship with him has devolved into an endless cycle: I place him on the rug on his back.  He flips over and attempts to crawl.  He is unable to do so and begins to scream loudly.  I eventually go over, offer some soothing words, and flip him onto his back.  Repeat until insane
  • My husband, having returned from China is now leaving for Japan.  I am beginning to seriously wonder if he has one of those secret second families in Asia.  I hope, for his sake, that his Asian wife is nicer to him than I am when he tells her about his upcoming travel plans.
Alright, that's all I got.  

Now, I return to the subtle joys of living with 4 other humans in my one-bedroom-apartment for a week!  It's like a reality-show gone bad over here.
