Just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad song

Well, I can't say that every cowboy I've met sings a sad song, but Liel sure is singing one today! She's terribly fussy and grumpy- she wants me to hold her, but she doesn't want my arms or hands on her. No, she doesn't want to be in a mei tai. Or get down. Fine, mei tai. And she wants her kitty water. Ack, it's empty!!!!!!! No, it's not. Yes, it is!!! *wails and flings water everywhere as she shakes the bottle*

You see what I mean?

Yesterday Zion and I were examining the WWF animal "adoption" catalog and he wanted to know which animals I thought were cute, and which ones weren't very cute. Then he had Muffins tell the monkey pictured next to him that he, the other monkey, wasn't very cute like Muffins was. I suggested that saying something like that might hurt the other monkey's feelings, and perhaps was not very kind. How would he feel, I asked, if someone told him that he was not very cute? Zion looked at my thoughtfully. Then he grinned.

"I would think they were tricking me, because I am very cute!", he laughed.

Evvvvvvvvery rose has its thorn! (every night has its dawwwwwwwn). No idea who sings it. Shall I guess Bon Jovi for the 1000th time and be wrong again? Sure! :D

Mapi is in rare form these days, equally disgruntled with the universe and all it presents to her. Hope Liel gets out of her funk PRONTO :D

zion, because he is so cute, will have a hard time believing that "every rose has its thorn." after all, he will not likely taste the poison of a broken love affair, knowing only the delights of being very cute all the time.
