Family Fun (Fright) Fest

Today we went to the Clarksville Family Fun Fest. There were booths for food and jewelry, face painting, animal contests, etc. There are two things that we learned today...

1. Joey is terribly afraid of clowns- even the ones that *barely* resemble clowns.

2. Joey is also terrified of skeleton face painting, as see in photo of Milo with the makeup. Joey would scream, cry and hide behind me to avoid looking at his big brother. Eventually, he chilled out a bit, but it took some time.

Well, there are actually three things learned today... Milo looks really, really good with black eyeliner... it brings out the hazel in his eyes. (I couldn't get all the makeup off in one pass, so he was stuck with eyeliner most of the night.) I know he liked the attention, and I suddenly wondered if he'd go through a "Cure" phase in high school... ah... one can only hope...!

Mission Impossible

Here's Joey serving as my covert distraction while doing field research for Subway!

Mad Men Milo-style

Sunday night I was working on 4th Quarter ratings estimates for Nashville.*

Milo came up and asked if he could help... So I explained what I was doing and told him that there is a person like me who does the same thing to make sure he sees a Happy Meal commercial and so he knows which toy they are offering and how many times he and Joey have to bug me to get one.

His response - "Dad... you have the coolest job in the world!"

*In layman's terms, I was trying to figure how many people might watch a particular TV show based on current trends and past performance so I can determine the value of said program as an advertiser.

"Milo was born a poor brown child"

Well, he hasn't got that particular quote right... but he's doing well with "The Lord loves a working man and don't trust whitey."

Yes.. Milo and I watched 'The Jerk' last night...

Like Grandpa, Like Grandson

According to Milo - "Justin Beiber is not a girl but he sings girl songs."

Kinda reminds me of when my old man thought Vince Neil was a girl.

What do you think?
