I always liked this holiday.
But we didn't do anything about it today. Still single parenting -- three more days. Some TV in the morning (must... cut down... on TV) and then over to the in-laws for lunch. Then mother-in-law A____ took the boys to an small-animal exhibition in downtown Ostheim (chickens, ducks and bunnies!) while I took a nap on the couch (nap!). And that was pretty much the day.
But I don't want to spend the entire month blogging about our everyday lives. So let's see.
A while back -- um, like a year ago -- I started a short history of the Armenian Republic. (Part One, part two.) I should finish that. Not tonight though. -- What brought it to mind: an article today about the Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan meeting yesterday in Moscow to sign a joint declaration about Nagorno-Karabakh. This is one of those "nothing actually happened, but just them being in the same room was a huge deal" kind of things.
Kid's movies and TV. Yeah, I want to write some stuff about that too. It seems like something of a fallow season... the best thing on TV right now is "Avatar: The Last Airbender" which is pretty good but not, you know, great. (Carlos watched the pilot episode of Samurai Jack when he was here -- the one with the talking dogs -- and was bouncing up and down on the couch over the Kurosawa references. Samurai Jack really was all that.) But not tonight.
I guess this is more of a coming attractions kind of a post. Way to build reader interest, there.
Trivia: hedgehogs eat mice, apparently.
Okay, it's Sunday night, tired, I got nothin'.
Anybody vote early? Anybody not planning to vote?
