The other evening Add came to me and said "Hey Mom...I just realized that Barbie the Diamond Castle is a weird adaptation of the 9 Muses in Greek Mythology." That led to a nice conversation about why it is important to study ancient history and myths, because often there are references in daily life. He did say that he doesn't so much like Egypt Mythology because it creeps him out a bit.
Right now he is up in bed surrounded by Mary Pope Osbourne's Tales From the Odyssey series..he is really enjoying it.
I am waiting for Mr C to get home. He had meetings in Cleveland today. While there he stopped in at our favorite music store and found a DVD about the Dead Kennedy's for me. We are going to watch that tonight along with Synecdoche New York.
Our grass is getting pretty long...ok..it's ridiculous..you can see it in the pictures I posted below. I called the mowing guy...he answered the phone not with a hello but with "Ya'll need your lawn done?" He has SUCH a gravelly voice and thick southern accent that I can hardly understand him. But he will mow the lawn tomorrow, and for that I am truly grateful.
