    Maia Battle Report: Year 3 Month 4    Maia at age 3 is showing small signs of brilliance, like asking what's going on on the other side of the world when the sun goes down, or making a connection between something brand new and something we learned and forgot months ago. She is into a rhyming phase where she likes to string rhyming sounds together like "hocky, blocky, docky". She has definitely entered the WHY?? stage of life which is more irritating than I thought it would be. All it's doing is training me to hold back the reason for something I say so I'll have a follow-up ready for the inevitable WHY??   We're working on her joke abilities, and she has over a 50% chance to guess the punchline of jokes following a known pattern, like animal sounds...

    List Day: 10 Unlikely Perils that Childrens' TV Prepared Me For     Quicksand     Fake roads painted on walls    All of the animals escaping from the farm    Erupting volcanoes    Trains approaching while I'm in the middle of a bridge    Trains derailing because the track switch is toggled to the wrong side    Convicts trying to steal my vault of gold    Friends pressuring me into smoking cigarettes    Trapped in a cage with the key just out of reach    Drugs everywhere

    List Day: COVID-19 Cause and Effect     We used to use paper towels for everything... It became undesirable to shop at Costco for a couple months... Our paper towel supply ran low... We were forced to purchase name-brand paper towels in the grocery store whenever they weren't sold out... We found that these paper towels don't have the option to tear at 1/2 size so they're overkill for double duty as napkins... We bought napkins so we don't waste full-size paper towels... We bought weighted napkin trays so they don't blow away on our screen porch... We are now a napkin family.      I used to get enormous, fresh-baked bagels for breakfast at Safeway twice a week... During the early days of quara...

    List Day: 10 Children's Books You've Never Read        An instructional text for young readers, reminding them that everyone occasionally gets constipated -- it's perfectly natural and nothing to be ashamed of. Light-hearted pictures illustrate the various ways to combat a backed up drainpipe, from bran muffins to enemas.          Gently normalizes the lifestyle of a single mother and her daughter as they flee from state to state, avoiding unsympathetic judges, and the custody rights of a deadbeat father.           A cautionary tale of a puppy's encounter with childhood obesity, from playing too many video games and watching Blue's Clues.       ...

    List Day: Screen Porch Features and Configurations      Elevated table fronts window to basement, allowing pass-through of food trays and drinks without having to open heavy doors one-handedly.    Plastic, lightweight chairs allow for quick rearranging based on where the sun is during the day (rollup shade for potent sunset sun still in shipping limbo somewhere between here and Georgia).    Minimal permanent furniture allows for easy conversion to summer yoga studio.    Small plastic bin for easy access to paper plates and plastic silverware rather than a permanent garishly wicker cabinet.    Overhead fan has 3 settings and a seasonal switch that goes from suck to blow.    Pleasant view of fores...

    List Day: 10 Pandemic Business Ideas       Magic Pandemic Balls : Ask the Magic Pandemic Ball a question when you need trustworthy advice on adhering to competing local, state, and federal pandemic guidance.     Peek Costco : Take all of those "watch an eagle raise a family" webcams abandoned since 1999 and point them at Costco entrances. Charge people for online access to the camera at their local store so they know when the lines are shortest.     Flop Ten : Use an algorithm to unearth 10 awful TV shows that your streaming company really needs to recoup losses on, then advertise them on your homepage as "Top Ten in America Right Now!".       NO U REVERSE :...

    List Day: 8 COVID-19 Impacts in our Life      The line to get into Costco wrapped around the building last Friday (with an orderly queue enforced by two Loudoun County Sheriffs), preventing me from stocking up on corned beef and Guinness.    We ordered meals from our favourite local pizza place (Joe's Pizzaria) on two days in a row.    Rebecca did a 90 minute yoga class through her studio from the basement, streamed online over Facebook Live.    I did a 7 AM grocery run at Safeway on Sunday to find shortages in fresh greens, eggs, milk, and cleaning supplies. It was quiet, other than the ruckus over the stocker who had just run over his foot with a giant pallet of water and was awaiting an ambulance.  ...

    List Day: My 6 Worst Bulk Purchases     12 Fresh Bagels : A dozen soft, fresh bagels may seem like a wonderful deal, but you're guaranteed to lose half to mold before you have a chance to eat them at a regular pace.     6-Pack of Aluminum Foil : I use tin foil for everything, from lining pans to reheating leftovers in the toaster oven, so this seemed like a worthwhile purchase. Six years later, I still had four rolls left.     300 Butterfly Clips : Unless you're a professor making hard-copy packets for a bunch of college students, these will sit in your drawer for years until you throw them out yourself.     200 Styrofoam Bowls : These are great for easy-cleanup of all t...

    List Day: 10 Things to Appreciate in the Next Decade    Being able to describe the era briefly as "the twenties" in casual conversation and never having to say "the aughts" or "the teens" again.    Our new screen porch. No bugs allowed!      A new satellite work location just down the road in Herndon, eliminating the need to drive in Tysons.    The full payoff of our mortgage (between 1.5 - 4.5 years away, depending on how much money we throw at it).    Between 1 and 3 new Presidents.    Upbeat party themes based on 100-year anniversaries, such as Prohibition, the Russian Famine, the Rise of Mussolini, and the Great Depression.    Maia reaching the age where she can p...

    List Day: 8 Minor Things I'm Thankful For    I have never had a food allergy so intrusive that it forces me to question the meals put before me.    I live in a neighborhood with an HOA that can't be bothered to interfere in anything.    I have never worked in a job with fixed start and end times.    I have a backlog of new shows to get through.    I have never needed to be in a hospital, except to visit other people.    The most negative thing that happens to me on a regular basis is when I open a yogurt and the pressure from the lid spatters yogurt on my dress shirt at work.    I have never lived in a place where I had to move my car in order to have guests park.  ...

    Vote BU 2019    In need of a write-in candidate for tomorrow's election? Look no further! Here are a few of the benefits you are GUARANTEED to claim if I am elected to any office anywhere in Loudoun County for any amount of time.     A stimulus will be provided to local Safeway grocery stores to make them look less like Greyhound bus stations on the inside.    All the new "me too!" streaming services must license their exclusive TV shows to Netflix after 6 months.    New data centers must be built completely underground, with walkable commercial areas at ground level, and hipsters living one floor up (the cool suburban hipsters with scruffy beards that microbrew, not the whiny urban hip...

    List Day: 10 Questions to Ask When Doing Local Election Research      Is the total count of their Twitter tweets greatly out of proportion with the sum of their Followers plus their Following count ( -1 )?    Do they own a real domain name ( www.candidate.com ,  +3 ), or are they camping on a subdomain ( candidate.blogspot.com ,  +2 )? Or, even worse, a social media group ( www.facebook.com/candidate ,  +1 )? Do they even  have  a web presence ( -3 )?      Did he include a picture of himself in the Sheriff Department coloring book passed out at SterlingFest ( -3 )?    Is their platform purely aspirational ( "I want to bring...

    List Day: 10 Pieces of Sound Advice from a 40-Year-Old      Work just enough for financial security and a little side pot. Do a little overtime early in your career to understand what it's like and "prove yourself", but don't fall into the trap of thinking that working more is ever necessary. With that in mind...    Base your career around something that you enjoy enough, are reasonably good at, and pays a decent amount. The triangle is critical. By reducing the time and increasing the money involved in your job, you can do what you love on the side. Doing something you love for a living will make you hate it.    If you enter a craft brewery that brews more than 2 sours or 3 IPAs, leave and find a better one.    Do things (like ...
