Since I've blogged about how cute Ike is being lately. I decided to share what cuteness Elli is up to.

So recently she's been pretending to be a kitty. Fine, whatever. I encourage this. She even has a name when she's a kitty. Her name is Crackers. Here's how she came up with this.

So I'm drying Elli off after a bath and she starts meowing.

E: "Meow, mew, mew"
M: "Oh. Are we being a kitty?"
E: "Meeeeeow!" *big grin on face*
M: "Okay, Kitty. Lets finish drying off and getting ready for bed"
E: "Meow!!!* points at wide open mouth
M: "Are you hungry Kitty?"
E: "Mew" Nods
M: "Okay. What does Kitty want to eat?"
E: *adopts classic Pooh bear "I'm thinking pose"* "Crackers!"
M: "Fishy Crackers?" Elli nods. "Hrm. If you are going to be a Kitty for a long time, you should have a Kitty name. What should your name be?"
E: *goes back to thinking pose* "Crackers!"
M: "That works. Crackers it is!"

Gwen thinks this is hysterical and is trying to think up a good name for when she pretends to be a dog.

Did Somebody Say "Mattress"?

Ross and I are trading Ghostbusters lines. My title is from Monty Python, indicating that I had to respond.

I'm not running on a lot of sleep right now, so the free associators are going to 11.

That definitely describes our house last weekend.

Let us know what Gwen's dog name is when she decides on one.

I have a quilting friend who told us about a friend she had when she was a child. Her friend's parents allowed her to choose a summer name each year. I wish I'd done that when my kids were growing up. It would have been interesting to see what they came up with.

My Caltech Shakespeare prof was named "Jenijoy Labelle." Rumor had it that her first name came about because her parents didn't get around to giving her one until she was three or four, at which point they just asked her what she wanted her name to be. "Jenijoy" is what she came up with.

I find the rumor highly doubtful, but charming, so I choose to believe that it's true.

With her yearbook photo, she is entitled to ask us to believe anything she wants.

A year or two back I went to the annual Tech Alumni Seminar Day, and she gave one of the talks.

It's been twenty years since I took her class, and I have to say: she has aged really well. Wow.
