Survivor and Monkeyboys and Post of the Week and the Windy City, oh my!

I wanted to let all my Jr. Intergalactic Gladiators know a few things.

First, I made a visit to Survivor: Tatooine this weekend. Qui-Gon Jinn won the competition and had a big party (or as I like to call it, a par-tay) for everyone. You can read about my visit right here.

Speaking of Qui-Gon Jinn (that's what we call a "segue" in this business), he had a visit from Jo Jo the Monkeyboy last week. You can read about that adventure here, here, and here.

Also, I won Jar Jar's Star Wars: Unplugged Post of the Week competition with this unnamed post. I actually did give it a name, but evidently brackets won't show up in HTML. Duh. Despite my inability to name my own posts, I am very proud to win this award.

Furthermore, I wanted to tell everyone that it was very windy in the Windy City yesterday (how windy was it?). It was so windy that I saw a witch flying past my house backwards on a bicycle. But seriously folks, it was so windy that when the Chicago Bears kicker tried to kick a field goal, the ball flew into the air, curved 90-degrees from it's original path and sailed away in that direction. It was so windy, that when I tried to take in the umbrella from our outdoor table, I almost sailed away, too.

Finally, yesterday my daughter wanted to paint some pictures. Below is one of her paintings.

No, no, that's not me. It's Cinderella. You can tell by the glass slippers. She has gotten really good with her artwork. I am very proud of her.

OK, tomorrow's post is going to be very exciting. I am going to tell about the time I went to Planet Home Depot and tried to return a hammer without a receipt. Oh yeah, it's going to be super exciting. Honest.

Obvious it is that Cinderella that is. See this, anyone who can interpret post-modernist art can.

Lots of paintings the Younglings do for me. Have to get a bigger refridgerator I will.

Seriously though... it does kinda look like some sort of intergalactic gladiator. =) Maybe Cinerella was an intergalactic gladiator?

What with all my responsibilites at the school, I just don't get out of the galaxy as much as I'd like. Tantoonine sounds like an interesting place to visit. Well, actually it sounds more like something that would be picked up off the toilet seat in a truck station rest room. But traveling is fun. And congrats on your award.
