I wish I could find a link to the Natalie Portman rap video from SNL… it’s the best thing! Rook told me this, and I didn’t believe him. It turns out to be true. Portman bitching and cussing and telling little-girl fans to fuck off; Portman posturing, spitting, punching dumb fans, and splintering a chair over the fake talk-show host.
I have a throbbing headache. Moomin’s shrill fakey giggling is making me want to throw up. I can’t figure out if I’m having allergies or a cold… Plus PMS. I thought it might be a cold coming on, but then sitting in the library made me feel completely better, which means allergies. Then it started to seem like both. Dammit!
Moomin’s homework was all about coins and… weirdly… probability or combinations… Like if you had a pocket full of some unspecified number of pennies, nickles, and dimes, what are ALL the different ways you can randomly select two coins? *boggle* for first grade, mind you.
Cute moment for the day!!!! Alert!!! Moomin spent a lot of time horse-surfing and horse-motorcycling: to do this, he turns his giant stuffed horse upside down, sits or stands on the belly, and uses the front feet for a steering wheel. The horse morphs from surfboard to motorcycle to spaceship. And then he asked me… thinking of all the money and coin related homework…
Moomin: Mom, there are some things that cost 10 bucks, right?
Moomin: And 10 bucks is like 10 dollars, which is a lot of money, right?
Me: Yup. *thinking guiltily of all the times when a kids’ toy is too expensive, but a double latte and a sandwich for me isn’t*
Moomin: And, so, actually, if you got a horse, and got the horse to buck 10 times, you’d have 10 bucks. And you could buy whatever you wanted, because you’d have 10 bucks!
Honest to god I couldn’t tell if he meant it for serious or for a joke.
