A Reminder

Last night was a very rough night with Julia -- I am running on only a few hours sleep right now. So, the purpose of this post is to remind me of why I'll keep her.

This first photo is of her fully decked out and ready for a night on the town. She's donned her tinkerbell dress (a bit oversized, but that's stylish), a sun hat, a mismatched pair of shoes, and, of course, a mirror for touch ups. And just so you know, this get-up was chosen by her - we had no influence, eventhough it looks like something I might concoct in my ignorance. But on her it's just plain cute.

This last photo is of her wearing her beloved bucket as a hat. She loves to wear this thing and it makes her look like a capuchin monkey. Annie and I even have her clap her hands together like she's holding a pair of cymbals. Sure enough, she transforms into the spitting image of monkey on a leash tied to an organ-grinder.

OK, I think I'll keep her. For now. But a few more nights like last night, and ...

Other reasons to keep Julia:
*Free smearing of various food items
*she comes in handy if you have tufty-haired enemies (and who doesn't?)
*If you are ever called upon to re-enact 'The Phantom Of The Opera' (and you most likely will be), her enthusiasm and kicky dance numbers will help see you through.
*she will help the new Lindsay to respect and fear womankind, thus shaping him up nicely for a romantic partnership with Maggie.

So much opportunity for romance. Alright. I'll keep her.
