Hellooo, Nurse!

OK, so you know how I mentioned in a previous post that I was looking for a witty yet loving name for each of my three urchins? Well, my two girls are pretty sure that they should be named after the Animaniacs, of Warner Brothers cartoon fame. Did you ever watch this? Holy merde, it has to be the Best. Cartoon. Ever.

The tall boy isn't convinced, but the real problem is that they are currently tussling amongst themselves over who gets to be Dot; in the Animaniacs world she's the only one who passes for sane -- although the value in being the sanest of three lunatical cartoon critters of indeterminate species escapes me.

Tall boy claims Dot status because it would be funny -- seeing as how she's the only girl critter, and he's my only boy urchin. My oldest girl (rightly) claims that she is neither "Wacko" or "Yacko" by nature -- unlike her siblings, so she must be Dot. Youngest girl, true to her goofy good nature, doesn't really care -- she just thinks the whole idea is hilarious.

Meanwhile we have been having just a whole lot of fun watching old Animaniacs videos. I have approximately fifteen loads of laundry giving me the stink eye, back-to-school shopping looms ever nearer, and I promised myself I would actually put my Christmas stuff away soon. But I'll get to all that -- later! Right now, I hear the sweet strains of "The Cheese Roll Call" . . . . Gotta go!
