  1. I voted but I don't understand why or how. Worst poll evah.
  2. Sounds like a blissful moment to me! There is something about that album that can make me feel as young as I was in '95!
  3. Love Josh Ritter! Still kickin myself for not going to the show when he was @ Liberty Hall in Lawrence. At the time, I was trying to stick to a really tight budget, so I decided not to buy tix. Doh!
  4. Missed Josh Ritter @ Liberty Hall in Lawrence, KS. Actually made a conscious decision to stick with the budget and not go - dammit!
  5. I have a friend who moved from Kansas to CA, and she laughs at how it's "Storm Watch 2009" anytime it rains. Also, we were once in a Middle Eastern restaurant when a big storm blew through, and the Middle Eastern guy working there was completely freaking out. We assured him that we weren't going to die, and indeed, we did not. Another funny is to see people from more temperate climates react to ice and snow - especially while driving. Yikes.
  6. Happy Birthday from your Kansas neighbor! You were blessed with beautiful weather just for the occasion. It's my Dad's birthday, too.
  7. Hi-jack away. A little kid talk is nice for a change. If you know someone who welds, you might be able to get a nice robot on dirtbike special-made just for Hayden. All this robot and dirtbike talk makes me hungry for some They Might Be Giants!!
  8. Yes, that's the set that I was talking about. Cool idea to get a mini-me Lego mini-fig, though I gotta say it would look like your kid but with severe jaundice. Actually, he was clear that he does NOT want an ipod. Weird, I know. I'm sure that will change in a few years. (The not-wanting-an-ipod part, not the weird part. That will never go away. Weird parents=weird kids.) Seriously, for 250 bucks it should.
  9. My other son loves Hayao Miyazaki. I've got to check these out. Thanks for the tip.
  10. I'm not sure he's quite ready to go there yet. He's still working on his basic drawing techniques. I've heard that watercolors are more challenging and would probably be too advanced for a 10 y/o (although he is a prodigy, of course). In a few years, though, I can see that as a gift for him, along with a watercolor class like lammycat suggested. Did I mention you all rock with all of these awesome ideas? Really, thanks!
  11. Here I thought that I was the worst mom ever since I couldn't think of a good idea. Glad I'm not the only one. Yeh, I know that lego minifig biz is a racket! They do sell sets of minifigs on lego.com that are reasonably priced, but they're kind of generic (like a chef minifig and a fireman minifig). Could you like glue a robot on a dirtbike? Would that work? It actually sounds cool to me; I just don't know that it's been done before. Good ideas, too. My dh and father in law are both very talented photographers, so he has personal teachers. He's taken several art classes in the p
  12. He already has one - got that when he was like 4 or 5. Hope it doesn't sound like he's a spoiled brat, cuz he's not. He's just always wanted specific, reasonable gifts and has therefore received them. Good idea, though. His 12 y/o brother wants armor - I'm still working on that.
  13. This is awesome too: http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/science/91e4/
  14. Holy cow, they have astronaut icecream. I remember sending off for that as a kid. The thinkgeek site is cracking me up. All that nerdy humor - reminds me of the little non-jokes I hear on NPR. llynn, I'm your biggest fan right now. (Hope that doesn't creep you out.)
  15. Wow, everyone thanks for all of the ideas! thinkgeek- what a great site! We are definitely geeks, but cool geeks, you know? (That's what we tell ourselves, anyway.) This looks particularly cool and might be a keeper for him: http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/science/af4c/
