I was riding my bike home yesterday and I accidentally burned some rubber!
[At this point in your life, what could you see yourself being interested in for a long time? Maybe for a career?] A paleontologist or a geologist. And I think those things might be related. I definitely don't want to be an office worker when I grow up, that's for sure! Science, technology, math, music, art. Cooking wouldn't be bad. If I had a farm, I could drive the Kubota.
(Upon tasting the trout they caught in Yosemite, Julian declared it "super good, with a hint of PowerBait.")
Come on, Baba, tell us all the funny stories you have in that brilliant mind of yours.
Don't water that plant so much, Mama. It's a native.
Right now I'm not into fast things so much as strong things. Fast things are too loud. What's the use of a fast car? Strong things are more useful.
[Julian, want to come with me on a mini-adventure?] No thanks. I'm having too much fun right now with paper, pencils, and duct tape.
Let's do something fun. Let's play instruments together. Let's make something up.
Mama, you don't have enough odd colors of makeup.
[How much do you think it rained, Julian?] Oh, about a gallon.
What is rubber cement used for anyway? You know what I use it for? To make fake boogers.
I'm trying not to ride in a car as much as possible this year.
Hey Mama, will you get me a belly button protector? Or will you get me a belly button detector?
[Have a great time at astronomy camp, Julian.] OK, and I'll try to get some knowledge!
When you come home from a long trip, our wood stairs out front smell really good--like home.
Thanks for leaving my skylight open last night. I heard a Peregrine Falcon!
