This blog has been keeping track of my adventures since 2004. The stories and the adventures have come from my college dorm room to Uganda, Peace Corps Kyrgyzstan, learning Dutch in the Netherlands to living in the wilds of Homer, Alaska. I went back to school in Amsterdam to study Theaterwetenschap (Theatre Science) at University of Amsterdam. And now my adventures as a Fruit Fly, a Sexy Unicorn, and creating a movement with Team Sparkle in Chicago.

I promise you, that is annoying

HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO HOW ARE YOU?
HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO HOW ARE YOU?
THANK YOU THANK YOU I AM FINE AND I HOPE THAT YOU ARE TOO!
HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HOW ARE YOU?

That lil "song" is what is stuck in my head. Over and over it keeps going through my brain. I tried to explain to the 6 year old at breakfast how annoying it was and then to the two year old at lunch. I gave the 6 year old some slack because he doesn't know English. However, the 2 year old understands English and still wouldn't believe me that, that song is extremely annoying. The song plays at this very, no I don't think you can understand, VERY(!!!!!!) high pitched voice. It plays in a stuffed giraffe that bobs his head side to side with the music.
Logic and reason have not worked on these children. So, I'm just going to have to do the most grown-up thing after that.... I'm going to hide it while they're taking their naps.

    after working at an infant/toddler toy company, part of me dreads having children because of how obnoxious some of the toys are!

    For some reason you always seem to end up at odds with small children... like at hockey games, cheering essentially for the same team. Does the voice sound like the Chipmunks? Sounds like the music scene isn't as good there. Дима Билан vs. High-pitched giraffe in boots... Don't worry, I'm trying to devise a plan to come visit maybe next summer.
