Literacy by MMORPG

February 26, 2010

The other day I had a great idea to help Isabel practice her spellings. I suggested to her that I might start changing her Wizard101 password every week to a word she finds difficult to spell. That way she'd be motivated to get it right!

Yes, yes, I am a very evil parent. She knows this already.

Then I suggested that I change it to "antidisestablishmentarianism". She said, "Go on then, I can spell THAT already". Heh. She can as well...

We have these conversations all the time.

Me: Mattgreen, can you remember a conversation we had earlier, it was only about two lines long and it was probably inappropriate? It's for my blog.
Mattgreen: Where were we at the time?
Me: I think ... er ... I dunno.
Mattgreen: So you want me to remember a conversation we had sometime earlier, held somewhere in the house, subject unknown?
Me: Yes.
Mattgreen: I've got nothing.

Mattgreen is just a fun guy

No really he is!
Here is his collection of mushroom pictures. Enjoy!

Laundry crisis

February 10, 2010

This morning. I am getting ready for work when a semi-clothed small child appears at the bedroom door.

Izzy: Mu-uum. I haven't got any trousers. Where's my school trousers?
Me: They're in the washing - remember we were away at the weekend?
Izzy: I'll have to wear my dirty ones then.
Me: No! Look... (peering into Izzy's wardrobe) Here's a clean skirt you can wear.
Izzy: (with undisguised horror) I'm not wearing a SKIRT.
Me: You have to.
Izzy: Ugh. You're EVIL.

Earlier I was searching my computer looking for a quotation I could use for a competition on one of the blogs I read, and I came across a word document from April 2004. I suspect it was originally a party game I came up with, but the answers have long since been lost in the mists of time.

I cracked up laughing reading it so I thought I would share!


1. “You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.”
2. “Isn't it strange that I who have written only unpopular books should be such a popular fellow?”
3. “When choosing between two evils I like to try the one I've never tried before.”
4. “More and more of our imports are coming from overseas.”
5. “A man can't be too careful in the choice of his enemies.”
6. “In the beginning the universe was created. This has made a lot of people angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.”
7. “Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.”
8. “Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.”
9. “Only the wisest and stupidest of men never change.”
10. “Poems: always a sign of pretentious inner turmoil.”
11. “The English like eccentrics. They just don't like them living next door.”
12. “I have never hated a man enough to give him his diamonds back.”
13. “If you fucking touch my dogs I’ll fucking kill you, you speccy twat!”

No, I don't know WTF number 13 is about either, but I expect Mattgreen will remember and remind me later!
