9-29-11 Batman Homer

Highlights of the day:

1. Hearing from several good friends per the post yesterday.

2. Finishing those freaking certification tests.

3. Making soup for dinner -- at 5:00 p.m. is it currently 66°

4. Having Sammi come home for lunch every day this week because she wants to hang out with mom (ok, and she doesn't have to eat PB&Js)

5. Watching Joe Versus the Volcano with Sammi this evening while working, getting to that wonderful part about the fluorescent lights, and, when Joe is packing up to leave his horrible office, he pulls out copies of books, Robinson Crusoe, Romeo and Juliet, The Odyssey -- all nods to little touches throughout the film -- and at this point, Sammi pipes up, "Oh! I've got to get a copy of that!"

Me: The Odyssey?

Sam: Yes.

Me: Ok, which edition?

Sam: Batman.

Me: Batman?

Sam: Yes.

Failing to suppress a giggle, and having one of those eureka moments, I say, "You mean Bantam? The publisher?"

Sam: (dead embarrassed look on her face) "This is Dad's fault."
