Ethan says that when he grows up he is going to start a school. Dogs will be allowed. It will cost $100 to go there. There will only be two rules:
1. No hurting dogs.
2. No hurting people.
The kids will decide the name of the school. The choices are:
1. Weird School
2. Place Where No One Learns Anything
3. Have Fun

Ethan adopted a Who, and Samuel insisted that it be featured here. So he graciously embedded the widget into my blog as a "draft" last night so that all I'd have to do today is send it live. It doesn't entirely work, but...I think that's the fault of the overworked website producers at Fox who were told to stop with all the "testing" and launch the damn thing.

Jen is at the movies with a friend (so she claims), so the boys and I are having an exciting evening in.
We took a bath, then decided to let Kahlua join us, so now there's water pretty much all over the apartment.
Ethan is walking around nude singing the theme song from the "Wayside" TV show while bouncing a basketball. Samuel is playing on ClubPenguin.com.
Kahlua is lying on the boys' bed, recovering from her emotionally exhausting ordeal.

Ethan reports that his school doesn't offer chocolate milk at lunch because "they don't like people to have fun."
"I'm going to create a school for being fun and breaking the rules. It might be hard to not get arrested. So maybe I shouldn't have a contractor build it. Maybe I should build it myself."
When pressed, he agreed upon one rule:
"No harming puppies."

Here's how incompetent Chase is.
I went to the bank today to make our mortgage payment. I didn't have the loan number, so I went to the window and gave them my ID. After a couple minutes of typing into her computer, the teller said, "The loan's not coming up on my screen. You'll need to see Customer Service."
So I went to Customer Service, and, after a couple minutes of typing into her computer, the Customer Service rep said, "I see a mortgage, but it says it's been paid off."
I said, "We refinanced at the end of November."
So she called the mortgage division on the phone. And THEY couldn't find it either.
Chase thinks we've paid off our mortgage.
That's the kind of incompetent customer service that will keep me as a life-long customer.
