so ya gotta hang on

Dylan managed to keep her head from exploding on Christmas. She actually held it together pretty well, given that she thought she was getting a laptop based on a list generated at, and possibly by, daycare (Aaron, when she brought the list home: Do you even know what a laptop is? Dylan: No). She did get a cool dollhouse that is far fancier than our actual house, with "a wind turbine, a solar panel with electrical inverter for generating electricity, a rain barrel for collecting rain, a biofacade which uses plant growth which helps control the appropriate temperature of the house, and a shade canopy that can be pulled down or lifted up to allow the right amount of sunlight and air circulation to come through."

Luckily our spirits have been buoyed from post-holiday letdown by putting Tomorrow on a loop for the past three days, per Dylan's request. I defy you to hang on to your bottom dollar after the fifth repetition. It just wears you down.

Speaking of dollars, which are not involved in the following anecdote, there are only four people left in survivor football. If San Fransisco loses to Detroit I will win the pool, which I would estimate is equal to $700 worth of joy to me.

Oh no! Ilana, don't look at the next post. Annabelle, my dad wants a buche right now.
