Squeaky! And Other Stuff...

Celest has decided to start squeaking throughout the day. I'm not sure why this is exactly, other than I think she likes the feel of making the sound and the sound itself. She just keeps making a squeaky noise. I don't know exactly how to describe it.

Aside from this, the girls have both decided to sample music in very tiny sections. Generally the first 1-10 seconds of a song. I almost lost my mind hearing the first three seconds of ZZ Top's "Cheap Sunglasses" last night. I can still say I've never heard the full song, since I was never allowed to hear past maybe the fourth or fifth second when she was slow about restarting the song. Good times. : )

The school year is almost over, and I don't know that I'm quite ready for that yet. I haven't figured out anything in particular to do with the girls this year. They get so bored during the summer that they tend to have more behavior problems. I'm still trying to work on something fun for them to do. Too bad I'm not comfortable with most camps for them. I think they'd really like a day camp.

Other than that, there hasn't really been much going on. Aside from the squeaking and sampling, that is.

Senator Agrees With Hitler's Treatment of the Mentally Ill

This guy should be ashamed of himself. Here is an excerpt from the article:

Barrington Republican Martin Harty told Sharon Omand, a Strafford resident who manages a community mental health program, that “the world is too populated” and there are “too many defective people,” according to an e-mail account of the conversation by Omand. [...]
Harty confirmed to the Monitor that he made the comments to Omand. [...]
Omand says Harty then stated, “I wish we had a Siberia so we could ship them all off to freeze to death and die and clean up the population.” Omand said Harty appeared to be serious. After Omand responded that his idea sounded like what Adolf Hitler did in World War II, Omand said Harty responded, “Hitler did something right, and I agree with (it).”
