So as I mentioned on ModBlog, I was in a minor car accident today… Before I tell that story, you should check out the interview that Veronika did with Zombie/Skullboy — it's quite amusing watching people posting who obviously don't understand that his goal is to be a Montreal punk… what, did you think he was going to be a doctor???

I had an early appointment with Nefarious, so we're driving along Wilson Ave and stop at a stoplight… And then… CRASH! A transport truck smashes into the back of us! After making sure that both Ari and I were alright, and that traffic around us was stopped, I got out to assess the damage. Thank god for giant off-road bumpers (1/4″ steel)! There's a tiny dent in the tip of my muffler, and a minuscule bit of paint is scratched on the bottom of my bumper, but no true damage whatsoever.

The driver of the truck made an excuse about how the pedals were too small for her feet, and the passenger nervously laughed, “we couldn't have picked a better vehicle to crash into!”, and we were all on our way. It definitely could have gone far worse than it did.

The appointment messed up school (field trip to Reptilia missed unfortunately), but we had fun doing lots of other things today, including finishing off the “Ocean Storm” painting (click that link for a better picture).

Nefarious also built a house out of cardboard — I was pretty impressed because I left the room for a minute, and when I got back, it was built. She told me it was based on our gingerbread house. We also played a reading game — as long as there are no special “rules”, she can sound out most three or four letter words. Amusingly, she got “fart” the fastest, although she initially read it “fartee” and laughed maniacally… Hey, before you call me a bad influence, the best way to keep a kid learning it to make it fun! While I cooked supper, she got out her paper and kept writing words (mostly the ones we'd done on the list, but new ones too) and reading them.

I have to decide what book(s) to bring to her school to read, because I'm scheduled to go in and be the reader of the day soon, which I'm immensely looking forward to. Little kids are super hilarious, so Caitlin and I go in and help at the school whenever we have the opportunity to.

Well, time to find some other funny things to post on ModBlog

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
