Assorted weirdnesses

Weirdness the first: Lucas has scarlet fever. No, I am not making that up. Yes, he will be OK. But WTF. (Thank goodness we live in an age of antibiotics.)

Weirdness the second: Mr. Trillwing v. the kite:



And yes, that is me cackling wildly in the background near the end of the video.

Feel free to go comment about the incident on his blog.

Weirdness the third: Today my therapist referred to me as her "Leonardo da Vinci patient." I'm trying to figure out if that's a promotion or demotion from "Renaissance woman." (I'm thinking there need to be therapists who specialize in overachievers because seriously, my therapists always seem to become fans as much as elucidators, and I assure you I'm not inflating my deeds during the sessions.) Also, she tells me she is forever in my debt because I introduced her to the TV show Life. I'm here to help.

We had a scarlet fever scare recently too! O didn't get it, but a kid he plays with had it and a couple of other folks in our circle got it. Weird, eh? It sounds so 18th century!
