A Pocket Full of Murder

(no subject)

Ugh. It has not been a good day.

Simon's been crappy crabby and ill since Sunday -- he's getting better now, or at least he seems perkier and more willing to eat, but he's still very clingy and demanding. Meanwhile, poor Nicholas started off with the same symptoms on Tuesday evening, then spent all last night and this morning being sick (after which Simon, obligingly, followed suit). The fact that my normally indefatigable three-year-old spent this whole day in bed with his eyes half-shut (or all the way shut) indicates how low he's feeling. The only thing I can get him to eat is applesauce, and even that's a great improvement -- last night he couldn't even keep so much as a sip of water down.

This is the first time my kids have been seriously ill -- we've had sniffles and other cold symptoms before, but nothing powerful enough to stop them dead in their tracks. And, of course, since they didn't sleep well last night, neither did I. I've been doing load after load of laundry today, and just hoping that I don't get whatever it is they have...

But my husband was able to take today off work to help me with the kids, for which I am very grateful.

More of those quiz-type things...

Gacked from penwiper26, it's the Morality Test:

Check out my Morality! 41% liberal, 59% conservative

Am I the only one who thinks that "Check out my morality!" sounds like a really cheesy pick-up line? Which brings me to the opposite end of the intelligence spectrum, the The Match.com Attraction Test (gacked from dragonpaws):

Interestingly, a lot of the features you liked are not especially popular. They're not what usually defines "mainstream" attractiveness for men. But who cares what the mainstream thinks?! Below is a list of some of the unique features you found appealing in men.

My chief complaint about the latter test is that most of the guys in the test pictures looked so... all-American to me. Square-jawed football players and surfer dudes, meh. Without any personality data, it was hard for me to imagine being interested in any of them...

Edited to add this one, gacked from sff_corgi:
