thehobbit, hearing the word celebrate, ran to dress for the occasion. i think i have the most interesting 9yo in the history of the world. he wore: black dress slacks, gray dress shirt, metal sherrif badge, silk-covered top hat, & his black wool london fog coat. when i say fancy dress i do not exaggerate. btw...later he asked why all the grownieups were smiling at him. umm duh?
we went to my fave diner in santa monica, & sat at the counter. thehobbit thought the counter was the coolest of cool. i had a blt with vegetarian b, manlyman had a vegan wrap, & thehobbit had a small greek salad with a side of black beans & salsa (i'm tellin' ya, he's interesting.) the only downer was a mama i know (that annoys the bleep out of me) in a corner booth. happily, she never saw us. whew.
today is hogwarts. we're making slytherin slime & i thought you'd like the recipe, errrr i mean the potion.
-2 tsp slytherin bone dust (original metamucil, coarse milled)
-1c gillywater (water)
1) combine the ingredients in a jar, & shake for 1 minute
2) pour mixture into a saucepan, bring to a boil over medium, & cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes.
3) transfer to a bowl & stir occasionally as it cools.
muggle explanation: metamucil is made from psyllium husks, which, when immersed in liquid, are capable of absorbing more than 10 times their volume. what you end up with is a mucialginous gel.
i shall end with bragging of one of my bestest pals. check out paper's new blog, & see the journal she made for minisoap's birthday! that's one talented mama. but why isn't it my birthday?
okey doke my one & only reader... i'm off my rocker & on my way (it is only 8am & thehobbit is playing an elvis cd. i so don't want an elvis morning...sigh.)
