Another quick and dirty post because Roan is totally giving me the stink-eye for being on the computer. He would prefer that I watch him watch semi-inappropriate Japanese Anime (current favorite: XXXHolic. Believe me, I’m well aware that the title would lead you to think it’s a show only a freaky freak would look at, in private. But it’s actually a pretty beautiful and only subtly wrong show that has captured my boy’s heart.)
So Roan had a fever Sunday night and we rested on Monday. Tuesday he rallied and we went to the Sony Wonder Technology Lab with Roan’s homie, Sachin. This place is great, and it is free. If you live in or around NYC and have kids it’s a destination, for sure. Plan on spending a few hours, and it’s not ever over crowded as they only let a limited number of people in each day.
But unlucky Roan spiked another fever last night, and is still hot today. So today is another rest day, full of TV, Monopoly and juice. He is extra cute when he’s sick so there’s that. And because Roan has just put his head in my lap, I’m outta here.
But I will leave you to ponder the connection between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie dressing their kids in a lot of Appaman lately, and these images (scroll down the boys numbers on the right). Or maybe they saw this? My feeling is that Brad and Angie were heavily influenced by the little Blondie with the colors in his hair.
And one more thing! (Oy Roan is seriously practically on top of me. I can no longer access the right side of my keyboard.) Tonight is the NY Premier of Shutter Island, the Martin Scorsese film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley and Michelle Williams. Last year Michelle Williams donated tickets to this premier to my Livestrong Challenge Fundraiser. I just want to say to the winner, Michelle from Thursday Night Smackdown….I’m still available as a date tonight, and I clean up reeeeeeeeel nice. I’ve had a pedicure just in case you call.
