3/27 - Miss Kitty and the Very Long Meeting

Miss Kitty found a strange bubble-popping princess on the way to our all-day offsite big meeting thing.  I was hoping we'd find coffee, which we did.  This offsite had excellent food because Jeanine is a rock star.  #thankyou
No wonder I'm sneezing like one of the seven dwarves.  Spring has sprung, yo.

3/26 - Miss Kitty and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Tuesday was a Tuesday in name only.  Otherwise, it was beyond a Monday.  I've blocked most events from memory, but forgetting to take my phone to work stands out, as does losing an earring and discovering I'd been walking around with one big earring like an 80's throwback.  I also recall fleeing to Mr. Vending for a chocolate refuge, only to find him wearing a big "OUT OF ORDER" sign.

As they say, It Happens.  Even in Australia.

3/25 - Miss Kitty and the box top bonanza

Look at all the box tops Jeanine saved for us from the office supplies!  We’re rich!  Meow!

3/22 - Blue Monster Truck plays chicken

Blue Monster Truck wanted to race with this yellow car, but it had to take The Man to work.
Then, he tried to play chicken with a basket of roosters, but that didn't go so well either.
At least, the Shoe Wiz was happy to get a ride.  (Although... why wouldn't he use his magic to make flying shoes?)

3/21 - Max and Ferdinand learn about the six degrees of Star Wars

Look what our friends found for Lil' Guy!  A lovely diagram of how everyone in Star Wars is connected to each other.
Although it tends to raise more questions than it answers.  Like just what kind of relationship is "other" anyway?  And why so many significant battles?  Can't we all just get along?  What is wrong with this family? Sheesh.

3/20 - Max and Ferdinand wish you a happy spring (and safe driving)

The nectarine tree is starting to bloom.  These blossoms don't smell as lovely as the plum tree's, but they sure are pretty!  If only the squirrels would leave us some nectarines...
Looks like Mr. Frumble is having trouble getting out of the BART parking lot again.  #ouch

3/19 - Max and Ferdinand espy some generosity

Max the Cyclops thought he'd found a friend in this surveying scope (?), but was happy to use it to find a generous It across the street.
The baby pepper plants are starting to peek out of the pot!

3/18 - Max and Ferdinand's field trip

Max the Cyclops and Ferdinand the dog came all the way to work with me, but then I just sat at my desk and worked all day.  I didn't even take their picture.  They were not at all happy with me.  So I took them to derby practice and now everything is fine.
Sorry, guys!  I'll do better tomorrow.

3/17 - Weekend fun: Rainbow and Shamrock edition

We made it to the parade!  The kids rode their scooters in the junior auxiliary brigade, and I skated with my b*tches.  It was awesome.  Then we went home and collapsed.

Sunday, we made rainbow pasta!
The pot of gold?  My little leprechauns.  Awww.

3/15 - Shamrocks and scooters

No glamorous work photos today, either.  I spent most of the day asleep and Army Guy seems to have gone AWOL, no doubt on a special mission to avoid my camera.

Tomorrow, the twins and I will (hopefully) scooter and skate in the St. Patrick's Day parade.  We got their scooters all shamrocked up.

3/14 - Army Guy sicks it up

So, sick sucks, yo.  I'd been wanting to catch up on my sleep, but not by being felled like a tree.  A gooey, sniffling, tree.  There's not much for toys to do on a sick day, unfortunately.

Here's an outtake from yesterday, where Army Guy was the third wheel in this dance.
And here is a picture of the baby pepper seeds we planted the other weekend.  If we get some baby peppers of our own, Lil' Guy will be very happy.
Now, go on.  Nothing more to see here.  Achoo!

3/13 - Army Guy finds it taxing

Had my tax appointment today, and Army Guy felt he should help clean up the place.
We also found this very cool steampunk water valve (?) nearby.
More wisdom from the streets:

3/12 - Army Guy looks for primary colors

He found BLUE (a fresh coat, even) on this fire hydrant.
Then he tried to put out this YELLOW fire.
We meant to look for RED, but then thought my alleged sinus issue from this morning might be a cold, so we decided to rest instead.  (I am not getting sick.  I am not getting sick.  I am not getting sick.)

3/11 - Army Guy pets a catfish

Or is it a cat with fish whiskers?  A walrus?  A tiger in a Halloween costume?
Here, Army Guy scanned the flower stand.  The way these daisies were arranged in color-coded order pleased him very much.  Army Guy likes it tidy.
And then, we had dinner with Dana!  We haven't seen her since high school!  Doesn't she look good?  She likes to take pictures with her friend Kermit, but forgot to bring him to the restaurant!  Argh!

3/08 - Stormtrooper Piggie tries on some dinosaur legs

They were even faster than he thought they'd be, as they were on the side of a moving bus!  Go, go baggy legs!
This guy is clearly on the angry birds' side...  Watch out, Stormtrooper!  (He's OK.)

3/07 - Alienist is the bow tie on this monkey suit

That’s not just a suit – it’s the full monkey!
Alienist was called to time travel.  He took this picture of him trying to phone home.

3/06 - Alienist gets into a staring contest with a girl on the bus

It wasn’t really a fair contest.  I don’t think he has eyelids!
Alienist thinks this plant is his mom.  I can see a family resemblance…  can you?

3/05 - Alienist goes cloud sailing

He wanted to tell this bird all about cloud technology, but the bird squawked and flew away in surprise.  As if he’d never seen a cloud-flying alien before.  Sheesh.
Alienist says, "I am not a moustache!" He also didn’t like being a pince-nez.  But who would?

Also, who would take their shoes off and ride all the way into the city in their sock feet?  This guy.  It's not like he didn't have shoes -- they were right there under his seat!

3/04 - Alienist takes a ride on the Pony Express

Jenifer and I found some history during our lunch walk.  These signs show the spot where the Pony Express first came to San Francisco.

3/01 - Puppy Love says, "I wuf you!"

We had lunch with Divya today.  Puppy liked her furry jacket.  I wished I’d worn my fuzzy coat – it was foggy and cold in the city!
