Conversations with the Captain

Captain Hysteria jumped into the lap of the agent of D.A.D.D.Y. and gives the agent a couple kisses. This usually means trouble,but today it meant a 5 minute conversation.
CH: Where's M.O.M.M.Y.?
AOD: At Work ...
CH: Where's M.O.M.M.Y.?
AOD: At Work ...
CH: Where's M.O.M.M.Y.?
AOD: At Work ...
CH: Where's M.O.M.M.Y.? Where's M.O.M.M.Y.?
AOD: At Work ...
CH: Where's M.O.M.M.Y.? Where's M.O.M.M.Y.? Where's M.O.M.M.Y.?
AOD: At Work ...

(repeat for 5 minutes)
and then there was a pause for commercials followed by

CH: Where's M.O.M.M.Y.? Where's M.O.M.M.Y.? Where's M.O.M.M.Y.?

and a dash to the Land of Bath. Was it ever mentioned that CH can now open the doors to all the lands of House? Well he can so closing the doors is but a minor delay now.

Currently, CH is harassing the dread menace that is Computer of M.O.M.M.Y.


Ashley! Ashley!

Nothing is more fun than a game of Ring Around the Rosie and of course you know how the rhyme goes:
ring around the rosie
a pocket full of posies
ashley, ashley
we all fall down

exactly who Ashley is, Queen Mckenzie has yet to inform us, but she will vehemently tell you that it is indeed Ashley and not ashes.

Massive, Massive

Here is where I would usually go on about the misadventures of my children. But today, I just can't. Today I weep.

This morning I was awakened by a call from my mother stating that my father aneurism burst and that he was on his way to UNC hospital. I called the hospital and was told that he had a MASSIVE, massive stroke. When my mother and I arrived at the hospital and viewed the CAT scan of his head, there was so much pressure from the blood in his skull his brain (which is normally wrinkled) was smooth. The only thing keeping alive in the artificial respiration machine. We've all seen him and sometime later today (Monday 27 March 2006), they will disconnect the machine and my father will be no more. He is 53.

I'm not going to lie an say that my father was the greatest person on this earth because he was not ... but in the end he is my father ... my Dad ... we are his legacy ...

... and I weep because my children will never know him. They will never know his flaws (and he had many) but most of all they will never know the love that he had for them.

With that, I hope to return the brevity and humor that graced this blog, but until I return with more news about Captain Hysteria, Queen McKenzie, Princess Gwen, and the agents of M.O.M.M.Y. and D.A.D.D.Y. ... be sure to take the time to spend with your family. We all just get a lifetime, so maximize the time you have with those you love.

Rest In Peace

All Gone! All Gone!

In her infinite wisdom, the agent of M.O.M.M.Y. went out and purchased string cheese. A nice 24 pack of single sticks of skim mozzarella cheese. The thought was that since Captain Hysteria likes sliced (cheddar) cheese then maybe he will like these easy to hold cheese sticks.

Mistake #1: They are not cheddar.
Mistake #2: They are not that tasty.

Observation #1: Queen McKenzie doesn't like them. However, everytime CH or Princess Gwen wants one, QM must receive one and take one bite before saying "I don't like it" or "I don't want it."
Observation 2: CH doesn;t really like them, but they make for a great new toy until they break and he requests a new one.
Observation #3: PG is the only one that like them and will not eat one that the others have bitten a piece off of or played with.
Observation #4: They don't melt very well and thus can't be used for pizza or any other cooking purpose.

So today CH got a hankering for a cheese stick which means ... yep, QM wants one as well. 2 mintues later the agent of D.A.D.D.Y. steps on CH's discarded toy and tosses it into the trash. CH then grabs another one which the agent splits in half. CH tosses them into the trash (apparenlty they were not tall enought o play with). QM has now decided that she doesn't want hers so it's handed to CH who then flings in across the room. It too goes into the trash.

CH then dashes to get yet another one... but there are no more. CH looks at the agent and begins to dance as he chants "no more".

PG consumed 4-6.
The agents consumed 3-4.
3 were rendered useless by attempting to melt them.
The rest made their way to the trash can or are still in hiding.

Don't buy string cheese sticks.


Conversations with the Queen: The I King Movie

Queen McKenzie: I want to watch the I King movie.
Agent of D.A.D.D.Y: The Lion King?
QM: No the I King movie where I King chokes his girlfriend.
AOD: ?
QM: The I King movie we watched the other day where I King chokes his girlfriend 'cause he's bad.

LATER after figuring out what movie it was, but not telling QM the title ...
AOD: What are you watching?
QM: The I King Movie.
AOD: What's the name of the movie?
QM: Star Wars. It's the I King Movie.

Of the movie is Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. The I King (Anakin) movie where he chokes his girlfriend (wife, Padme) because he has turned bad (been seduced by the darkside).

Catching Up

It's been about a month since the last post. That means it's catch up time.

Princess Gwen
Not much has changed with Princess Gwen.

Queen McKenzie
The Queen now insists that she accompanies the Princess on the (week) daily trek to school in the morning. Now every morning in addition with fussing with the Princess to get her off to school, the agent of M.O.M.M.Y. must also deal with the moody Queen. This morning with 50+ degree weather the Queen decreed that she was to wear her fuzzy almost knee high boots.

As of this morning, the Queen has pass yet another milestone. She can now tie her own shoes!

Captain Hysteria
The Captain entered the Terrible Twos (March 2). Nothing much has changed as he entered the TTs from the moment he could walk (9 months). However, now he has mastered the ability to turn doorknobs on all the doors (expect the front and back entrances) so there are no real barriers to him any longer.

The agents of M.O.M.M.Y. and D.A.D.D.Y. still manage to stave off the madness that comes with caring for CH, QM and PG. ME? I plan to update you on the everlasting antics on a more regular basis.
