Personal/Random: Sophie Regrets to Inform You That You Must Be Destroyed

Nieces 2
I have yet to write a post about Thanksgiving this year, and who knows whether I will, but I keep looking at the pictures from the day, especially this one, which makes me giggle every time I see it. I'm tempted to propose a caption-writing contest for it, as my sense of humour loves things like the bizarre juxtaposition of Stewie on Family Guy, of a child saying frightfully adult, and possibly malevolent, things. If ever I saw a child who looked like she were telling you that you must now be eliminated as part of her plan to conquer the world, it's my niece Sophia, here. But I'm sure that there must be a whole lot of funny in this one beyond what I see.

That is a GREAT photo. She is about to hit the button that will make the trap door under you open and drop you into the shark pits.

She just needs a fluffy white rabbit to stroke...

Perfect! Although the nieces are all actually more into penguins, 'tho I heard Sophie herself on the phone today demanding a flamingo....

And yikes! I didn't think about that. I should insert it into the picture digitally....

The seemingly built in ability of a young girl to say "don't mess with me" with her eyes will be a great asset to her as she grows older; and at the same time make her all the more interesting to the men she meets along the way. And I mean when she's much older.

Sorry about the no option of one interview due to the economy. C was actually laid off his work a month and a half ago. And we are extremely fortunate he was able to find another job in the same town. We are grateful, and found out later that the company went ahead and hired him, even though there was a hiring freeze. The times are a little crazy in the world at the moment.

I appreciated the article on the leader of luxembourg. Oh that we all would use our position and place in life to aid and protect the underpriviledged, the trodden-upon, and the neglected. I am sorely deficient in this area; and at times wish I could make a radical change away from self.

Well I have "waxed on" in what was meant to be a short comment; and now should have been a direct email. But off I send it.

Hope you are well.

Holy cow! I'm dismayed and then immediately relieved to hear the news about the C. That had to be a horrific moment, and a horrible, stomach-churning, sleepless night.
