Once you were two, dear birthday friend,
In spite of purple weather.
But now you are three and near the end
As we grewsome together.

How fourthful thou, forsooth for you,
For soon you will be more.
But 'fore one can be three be two;
Before be five be four.

I'm taking Simon to his new kindergarten today to get him registered for the fall. Kindergarten! Holy crap!

an updated "itsy-bitsy spider"

Sound effects by Simon:

The itsy-bitsy spider crawled up the mommy's nose ("ew")
Out came a sneeze ("Ahh-chew!") and out the spider goes ("wheeeeee!")
Out comes the Kleenex(tm) and dries up all the goo
And the itsy-bitsy spider is ready for Round 2.

we're out.

Damn it.

From the Face book group:

Hello all. As of about 5 minutes ago, the membership of CUPE 3903 has voted overwhelmingly to go out on strike. Therefore, the bargaining team/executive team has taken the direction of the membership, and have voted unanimously to strike.

The university's final offer is not only less than we deserve, it takes away many of the wages/benefits/funds we have previously earned. Therefore, we encourage the university to come back to the bargaining table with a substantially better offer that more fully reflects the extent of the work that we do.

Those of you that have signed up for 7 am picket duty, please show up ready to picket! Even if you have not signed up, please show up if you are available.

As well, please be aware of a Strike Rally that will be happening tomorow at 9 am, at the main entrance of York. This rally will have speakers, information, food, etc. There will be media in attendance, and its really important we show the university that we stand united together against a university that is determined to break us.

See you all on the lines!!

I may be on strike Thursday morning. Having done this once already, I really have had my fill of picketing -- please, please let the offer tomorrow be acceptable.

Just in case it's not, I may make these cookies for the picket line. I found the recipe in one of those community recipe collections, called, of course, "Treasured Recipes":

Aggression Cookies

6 cups oatmeal
3 cups brown sugar
3 cups butter
3 cups flour
1 tbsp baking soda

Combine the above ingredients. Mash, knead and squeeze until you feel better.
Form dough into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten with bottom
of glass that has been buttered and dipped in sugar. Bake in 350 degree oven
for 10-12 minutes. Yield: 15 dozen.

Lost a friend. Six years ago now. It still sucks.

that food meme

From various sources. I have to admit, it doesn't seem *that* adventurous a list to me -- then again, I live with an eat-lister (a variant on bird-watching).  The most exotic thing I've eaten must be whale, I think (and I don't particularly recommend it!).

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.
