Spud Speak 9

– Yeesh, I’m still getting over the sad-pathetic display of football from last night.  It looked like the bowl season started early with the Inept Bowl, as both the Bears and Redskins squandered opportunities.  After Grossman was hurt, I had a hunch Griese would be too rusty to do much of anything.  When you add the poor offensive line play, it’s no wonder the Bears could not score enough to win.

– I just caught it this morning, the preview for the next Narnia movie, Prince Caspian.  I’m too lazy to dig up a link, though it should not be too difficult to find.  From what little I saw, it looks like they movie makers go to the kids meeting the Prince much earlier in the movie than in the book.  It was nice to see Aslan on the screen again.

– I also saw a preview of Speed Racer.  Hmmm, I’m not sure how well a 60’s cartoon will translate to a modern-day live action film.  They do have John (Flintstones) Goodman in it, though.

– We’re still wrestling with misbehavior from the two youngest, while the oldest has his moments as well.  Kristal doesn’t look forward to picking up the youngest from daycare, as she inevitably has to hear about the reasons the girl “earned” a red mark on her report.  It’s a little more difficult with the middle boy, as he “mysteriously” clams up if you try to get him to describe what happened during the day.

– We did get good news last week that the birth mom’s appeal will be heard this month, and if things work out for us the paperwork from the state court will be ready in a few months.  From there it will take several more months until the adoption can be finalized.  They (social workers) would not commit to a range of time, but it looks like maybe September.  I asked if a fruit basket would help move the paperwork along, and they said it wouldn’t hurt.  They followed up by giving names of stores for gift certificates.  I think they were joking about the last part.  Maybe.

– It’s going to be slightly more chaotic at work the next few weeks, as more network equipment arrives and the new company’s equipment is brought on-line.  They keep talking about us “being available” the week between Christmas and New Year’s, but it’s still not clear what will be needed (for now).  Right now feels like the calm before the storm.  I’m reminded of a corollary to the Chinese “blessing”:  may you have an interesting job.
