Random Day!

I'm linking up with Stacy.

Can I vent?

I have a FB friend who used to be a co-worker and she refers to her kids as "the littles."   Here's an example:
"Happy Father’s Day to the best daddy my littles could ever ask for! He works tirelessly for our littles and never complains."  Sweet sentiment, yes, but the littles?  Why not children, kids, etc.?

See, The Littles was a series of books I used to read as a kid (and it was my favorite for a long time). It later became a cartoon.  The Littles had mouse-like features including a tail.  They were also mouse-sized.  I don't know why it bothers me so much, but it does.  Maybe because she's a one-upper.  Do you know someone who is a one-upper?

Another friend doesn't want to use her kid's real names on the Internet, so her first son, who is almost 4, has been called man cub since day one.  Here's what it makes me think of, when Ka refers to Mowgli as Man Cub in The Jungle Book.

 Her other son, who is 1 1/2,  is called wild thing.  I don't mind man cub, but wild thing?  Giving him that nickname when he's a newborn?  It makes me think of Max from Where the Wild Things Are, another childhood favorite of mine.  But I wouldn't really want my boy to be like Max.

Okay.  Moving on now... I got it all out of my system!

I've started watching CSI.  Watching might not be the correct word. It's more like bingeing. How have I never seen this show before?  I guess I was too caught up in Law and Order, L&O SVU, L&O Criminal Intent, and Criminal Minds.  I love shows with crimes, detectives, criminalists, and so on. And I love mysteries.  I never really got into NCIS, but I don't think I've ever watched CSI before until this summer, and I'm loving it!  So far, my favorite character is Warrick.  And... I just saw Dwight Shrute (Rainn Wilson) from The Office in an episode (playing a pick-pocket) and Hollis Doyle (Gregg Henry) from Scandal playing an FBI agent.

And now for some cuteness!

  1. It is odd what nicknames people can choose for their children, maybe she's not putting much thought into it.

    My cats always want the box, too, and they look like the two who fought until one fell off.

    Happy Tuesday!

  2. I agree with MM - it is odd what nicknames people choose for their kids. I bet those kids will have issues with their monikers when they get older!

    I LOVE CSI - binge away, my friend, I might have to go back and watch them again. ;) And I love the L&O ones, too! :)

    Loved your funnies - they had me literally laughing out loud! :)
