I Go On, and On….

I was supposed to be doing homework tonight. Except I am about three weeks ahead with my coursework. And I have had just about enough of school this week. So I am on Pinterest instead. Being totally productive. Actually I have been a little too productive lately. So maybe I should take tonight off. Considering what time it is, I should get at least three hours of sleep before starting all over again. Sorry, this is going to be one of those stream of consciousness posts that go on and on in a giant block of text without any real point. I am listening to Portuguese music and “attempting” to do some research on eugenics. I am actually surprised how well this paper is turning out. I wanted to translate German poetry instead, but apparently that is not allowed. I need valid sources. Apparently I am not a valid source. When do you get to the point where you can translate your own research? Maybe never. But that is alright, because what I am working on now if far more exciting. For those of you wondering, Ducky is officially walking. And he made the cutest noise at me tonight. I showed him a fuzzy pink thing. Which he immediately shoved in his mouth and tried swallowing. But after I told him we don’t eat fuzzy pink things, he started playing with it. Then he showed it to me and said”AH!” It was cute in that baby cute way. I have new eye liner. It is actually ridiculously sexy and I didn’t even mean for it to be. I almost feel like I should not be wearing this to work.

Alright, I had to split this paragraph up, it was hurting my eyes just writing it. I want to get a pedicure. Maybe I will have some time tomorrow. Maybe. I have a new winter coat. But the weather changed again. Why is it still hot in the middle of October? Something about that is just not right. I haven’t done yoga in almost three months. I miss my random strange poses. Eurydice is going to be performed at the Santa Monica theater in March. I am excited. Five months in advance. Or was it May? We have already established I can’t read calendars, so maybe I should look into this a little more so we don’t have a Tina Dico incident again. Next thing you know I will be going to an off Broadway production of God knows what in order to compensate. I want to go to a jazz lounge again. And I want to go to the Coffee Machine. I haven’t been there in years. I went to Starbucks the other day. Not quite the same. But the coffee is good.

Anyway, if anyone is still reading this (except for Tanya), then good night. More interesting posts to follow. I promise.

Baby Clothes Gift Guide From A Onesie Fashionista

I was chatting with a friend the other day. She just went shopping for her sister-in-law’s baby shower, and she took my advice and bought some six months baby clothes for the mom to be. As she showed me the cute onesie she bought I realized that she did not think ahead.

Her sister-in law lives in Chicago. Where they actually have four seasons (unlike where we live in Southern California, and we have 1.5 seasons at best). So as adorable as that onsie is, roughly seven months from now, when the baby will be six months old, in Chicago it will be January. And cold. Not onsie weather. I told her to take it back and get something just as cute, but perhaps warmer.

Then I reminded her that babies all grow at different rates. For example, Ducky is 10 months old, wearing 24 months clothes. So all those cute jackets and sweaters my mom got him for next winter will not fit by the time we get there. Munchie is two and a half years old, wearing 18-24 months clothes. Sizes vary. Thus I advised her not to get a baby parka for the little one, but stick to something “warmish” which can be worn at any time from September to April in a colder climate. Like sweaters and pants.

She was amazed by my expertise.

“That is why you write all that stuff about kids!!”

Um.. yes. Why thank you.

I wanted to share all this with the rest of you. Because it occurred to me a lot of people don’t take weather into account when buying baby/children’s clothes for future times, so if anything, I hope I have helped some people out. You are welcome.
