A little of this, a little of that

It's Friday, so don't expect complete sentences.

  • If you ever had a thing for the Replacements (yes, I'll admit to it) check out Dean Dad's essay on the occasion of the new CD release.
  • It is pitiful that I am 34 years old, I still don't know how to spell "occasion" and now, instead of using a dictionary, I Google both "occasion" and "ocassion" and pick the one with the greatest number of hits. (275 million vs. 525 thousand, incidentally. Which is sad. Thank goodness for that gentle "Did you mean occasion?" blurb on the page.)
  • More news on the often unhappy interface between children and the color red: Even if you know that your infant ate a large serving of beets the previous night, and you think you are emotionally prepared for the color of the next morning's poop, you will not be. It isn't possible.

Beets? Your kids (or you, or anyone) are eating beets?

Watermelon also makes for gory-looking diapers. I actually called the pediatrician in a panic once, long ago, due to the scary-looking aftereffects.
