October peanuts

Some entries from me and Rachel, since the kids entries are a bit thin with the travel I did that month:
  • The lady working at was reasonably attractive but it was the TWO 30 inch monitors in front of her that made my head turn.
  • Note to self: Del Taco is a terrible way to start the day.
  • My brother Grant: "People are always coming up to me and saying that I look younger than 35." Me: "That's funny. Nobody ever says that to me." Grant: "That's because one, you have a beard, and two, you're going bald."
  • Left my travel mouse where Corinna could reach it. I'll probably never see it again. (Six months later: I haven't.)
  • Rachel, entering our office: "Wow, the walls are really bare." She's right. I've been going there over two years now and hadn't really noticed.
  • Rachel: "I have 17 to spend, but only one buy." First world problems in Dominion.
  • Seen on Twitter. "Big Data: here in Texas we just call it data."
  • Rachel: "No, tonight's stroganoff does not have steak. But, it does have kale!"
From the kids:
  • Me: "In the car, kids! We're going to build something at Home Depot!" Isaac: "Tree house?"
  • I tasked Melissa with clearing off the table and she grumbles something about Isaac's bag. Isaac misheard her. "No! Isaac not bad. Isaac good! Right Daddy?" "Oui, Isaac est sage." "Daddy says Isaac good."
  • "Is Corinna on the table? Corinna, get down. SHE'S EATING THE BUTTER!"
  • Speaker: "Raise your hand if you've seen The Lion King." Most of the congregation raises their hand. Matthew does not. Me: "Matthew, you've seen The Lion King." Matthew: "That was in French. It doesn't count."
  • At 17 months Corinna is turning two. Rachel took some mail away from her, and Corinna went into Nuclear Meltdown. Rachel left the room, Corinna stopped crying, tracked Rachel down, and resumed the tantrum.
