Christmas Slackers

Alee, Ernie's teacher from school and occasional baby sitter, got Ernie this fun plush pumpkin toy that contains smaller Halloweeny plushes. It's a hit.

The girls don't have to work today, must be nice, and took Ernie to some Christimasy thing in Snohomish whilst I slaved away at home to pay the bills.

Ernin Around

I borrowed this Galactic Starcruiser related graphic novel form the library. Sadly there wasn't a ton of related material made before the place shut down so I'm already scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Tomato Time

Ernie the Wernie likes tomatoes but he does not enjoy the skins. They are essentially little watermelon slices as far as he's concerned.

Normal Day

Nothing much happened today.

Ernie appreciates all the greeting cards people send him. It's like a 4 page book.

Ern and Oats Don't Mix

University Village is nice because I can pretend I'm cultured and not in a mall while very much being the opposite of both of those things.

I started binge watching all Star Wars movies and shows in chronological order to prepare myself spiritually for Galactic Starcruiser. I wasn't able to finish before the journey because there are an infinity of Clone Wars animated tv episodes. Some of them are so so bad.

We ate at Ba Bar which is becoming one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle.

I wore my championship winning Kick'n Nuggets kickball jersey out so that haters would know that I'm a champion.

I've been more aware of Longchamp since buying fancy stuff for my girl on our last trip to Paris. I thought this UW one at Bloomie's was pretty cool and Washingtonian.

The primary reason we were on this side of the lake was to be close to the children's hospital. Ernie was vomiting a lot last time he had oats so we did a smaller subsequent test to see if that was still the case. He had a very tiny amount that he didn't even seem to want to eat. I wonder if he had already made the connection. Anyway he got sick again. Luckily not enough to need to go to the hospital, so we just chilled at Zoe's apartment and waited for him to feel better. 

Poor lil guy.

I was inspired to listen to an audio book of the Call of the Wild after our recent sled dog Alaskan excursion.

This is a fun example of Washington having the meanest alcohol tax in the country. The tax is based on volume, not price. So no matter how low a sale might cut the booze tax stays the same. These canned cocktails were 12.99 or 21.00 including tax.
