1. I was gathering library books to return this morning and noticed that Miriam used her stickers to glam up one of Jeremy's books:
I guess Bear Grylls looking all exhausted and survival-y on the cover just wasn't feminine enough for her. I hope the next library patron who checks out the book appreciates the girly touch, because I forgot to remove the stickers before I returned it.
2. When I walked into the library this morning, I had to run the gauntlet of loiterers who are somehow always hanging around outside the building. I know the library is a public place and all, but it seems like I shouldn't have to wade my way through crazy people (or, in the afternoons, cussing teenagers) obstructing the stairway just to get inside.
Today, one of them apparently took notice of my two female children because he started singing the "don't call me daughter" refrain from that Pearl Jam song. He just repeated that line over and over again until we were inside and out of earshot.
Bonus: I found a clip of my favorite Bear Grylls moment. Jeremy and I quote him on this all the time if we happen to eat something that tastes disgusting. Skip to 1:04 to hear his impression of what a scorpion tastes like. I love the timing of how he says it (the relevant part is between 1:04 - 1:15).
