So, did anyone read either of the funny cat articles in yesterday's post? One was a satire, and the other was, "Wait. How can this actually happen?" Both are fun, I promise. :)

Christopher has the 3rd-grade musical today, which he's been bitching about for the past week. I personally am not seeing the quantity of evil he thinks is involved. Is it because he hates the practicing for it? We confirmed last week that he likely has an eidetic memory (lucky boy!), which means that repetition about kills him. He hates the Spanish instruction.

I'm trying to finish a little something for badboy_fangirl. It's done! Whoo-hoo!!!

I've also been working on my British vs. American listing, and have a bunch of good information down and fairly well-organized... which now has to be coded. Ugh. Tables are involved— more ugh. Maybe someday soon you'll see it, but if you're in a hurry then plz email me!

Oh, and here's a fun seasonal picture offering:

Bwah-ha-ha! So wrong, but so cute. :D

So he can remember things after seeing them once?

Apparently so. He went through a listing of states bordering the Easter Great Lakes that was based on a map he remembered from Kindergarten.

And he said that he could "see information on the page" and that when he concentrated it became clearer.

I think for most of us, we can see (for instance) the approximate placement on a page, but when we concentrate absolutely nothing happens. At least, that's true for me.

And stuff he's heard... god, does that ever stick. And come back to haunt you at random times. :0

When I remember stuff, it's a voice n my head telling me it, like a VO. But I don't have a photographic memory.

And the last bit, that's just kids for you. They all do that. Must be genetic.

AW, I sympathize. I have that, too. It's like in my head I can re-read a whole freakin' book all over just by thinking about it.

Tell him it really comes in handy once you are all old and have a job :-)

I think Lucie would freak if I did that to her :-)

Later in school, when it's time to memorize Trig formulas and foreign language vocabulary, it would be helpful too. I never had quite that good a memory-- I could remember where on the page the information I wanted was located, but I couldn't actually SEE it. :0

As she should! Though I don't know-- my daughter keeps hanging signs around one of the cat's necks, and after awhile the cat gives up and forgets about it. ;)
