Tonight's conversation

As I was tucking molly in to bed...

"Wait. I'm going to call the god of darkness and tell him it's night, because I think he's nocturnal."
"Oh? How do you call the god of darkness?"
"On my superphone!" (Proceeds to make a pretend phone call to chernobog)

Raising a Believer

Molly: Mom, do you believe in god?
Me: I don’t.
Molly: I do.
Me: OK. What makes you think that?
Molly: Margaret believes in god.
Me: I think she does. You know, some people believe in god, but it’s a different one than Margaret believes in. How will you decide which one to believe in?

Molly: I’ll probably believe in the god… of darkness. And bats.

Update: Apparently, she's referring to Chernobog

Our power was out for eight hours yesterday. (5:22-1:18!) Thanks for the excellent service and smart grid, PG&E!

Now, where do I sign up for one of Elon Musk's new batteries?

Thank FSM for Spotify to supply me with salty sea shanties on demand!

I don't know how Drunken Sailor ended up in my head yesterday, but I'm glad Spotify can produce.

Go Home, America. You're drunk.

spotted at my local Whole Paycheck.
This is just slightly sillier than the labeling of bottled water as "gluten free" at the Sprouts in Sunnyvale.
