Good news, everyone!

Shirt by
Body by neglect and sloth.

Tonight as I was cooking the rest of my father’s birthday meal, my husband brought in a package from the front stoop. I knew exactly what it was, but I hadn’t expected to get it so quickly! I shucked my shirt in the middle of the kitchen and tried on my new tee. The color’s a dead match to The Planet Express ship. The future has arrived!

Scott has a plethora of fabulous shirts, from a “Got Wood” Shaun of the Dead tribute to some really great Jayne ringer tees. If you’re looking to finish off your cunning outfit with Jayne’s famous yellow gun shirt, he’s your guy. And let me just say this: you know how my husband started working out like a maniac and lost weight? I got him a Futurama shirt too – because, really, who can stop with just one? – and his shirt makes him look even thinner. No lie. Must be some kind of Farnsworth invention – super-slimming microknits. As you can see in the picture to the right, this shirt is so awesome that it’s blinding me. It’s true – the future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades.

The best part? Going to my knitting group tonight, peeling off my jacket, striking a pose, and intoning, a la clip six on this list, “Welcome to the WOOOOORRLD of tomorrow!”

Anyway. Great product, great communication, quick turnaround – I can’t say enough good things about this guy. What are you waiting for? Go buy a shirt!

(P.S. – I forgot to mention that it beautifully matches my octo-purse! Better and better!)

For two weeks running, Emily’s told me that she read during art class. Apparently, they’re all working on self-portraits, and she finished hers, so she’s just been quietly reading instead. I feel certain that hers was completed in five minutes, and she opted not to include any detail or color, which would explain the time difference between her and her peers.

Loyal readers may recall this isn’t the first issue we’ve had with art class. And honestly, I could probably write it off if we hadn’t had these same issues in second grade. There was over a month where her answer was “I read” when I asked her what she did in art class. Her second-grade teacher had to have a talk with the art teacher about strategies to get her to not flip out or melt down.

I’m writing her regular teacher to see if a conference with the art teacher is in order. I get that the teacher has 20 little bodies to wrangle in that class, but if a child is having trouble, you can’t just shunt her to the side. If she has trouble with the assignment, she needs a modified assignment, not busywork.
