20 litres of beer on the floor, 20 litres of beer...

My brother-in-law Andrew, the brewer extraordinaire, has been warning me to get rid of my glass carboys for beer making, and move to plastic. After mixing a full batch of beer and half a pint of blood from the shattered glass on my cement floor last night, I'm convinced.

On a brighter note, I now have an up-to-date tetanus shot. Yay me!

Accidental Monkey Porn

I'm not really a big fan of physical/scatalogical humor. Dumb and Dumber had about four funny parts for me. Austin Powers 2 wasn't funny, and I completely skipped 3.
But I'm still immature at heart, so I can lapse.
Friends of the family gave this monkey sprinkler to Gareth last year, and our weather was so abysmal, we never used it. We did, however, look at it, and chuckle. Here's why:

Both Frances and I kinda chuckled, and shook our heads, wondering what the monkey has coming out of his cup. I think it's a straw.
Whatever. It looks like a dink, and it's got the consistency of a condom. And, it shoots water out the end. Who on the seven continents designed this thing for kids? Or really for anyone, other than those who are into seeing female monkey keisters?
For those interested, it's a "Soft Squirts Sprinkler" made by Miracles4Fun. Their web site calls the phallic object in question a "Wacky Action Sprayer." It's whack-y, all right.
Anyways, we hook it up to the hose, and prepare to be amused. Our soft squirt friend didn't disappoint.
Check out the video. That is one excited monkey.

It's not very original, but we have both "Garethisms" and "Naomisms" much like we have "Tylerisms", that we keep track of (origin: friend of family in Quebec who mixed up her sayings all the time, forever termed "Judyisms") . They're a log of funny or cute lines that the two of them come up with. Obviously, we have more of Gareth than Naomi, but here's one from her last week:

Plate on high chair, with ham on it. Gareth gets out the watermelon from the refrigerator, and she sees this, and starts chirping for some.
"Not until you finish your dinner, honey." chimes in Mom.
Naomi proceeds to grab all the ham on her plate, throw it on the floor, holds up the plate and says, "All done!"
Who needs tv? These two are way more says the unbiased parent.
