11:31 am: Overheard at the Wright Household
So, this week I'm sleeping in. (Next week, we start gearing up for school.) I come downstairs after sleeping late and spending some time praying. The only person in the living room is the rabbit, who is running around on its own.  Ping-Ping's on the porch talking to China (one of her friends is being adopted this week, everyone's excited about it over there.)

As I look at the pictures from China the other mom sent, I become aware of an odd regular scream coming from downstairs. I don't think much of this at first because, frankly, The Cherubim often screams in odd ways. But after a while, it occurs to me that maybe I should check on him, as he has not screamed a lot recently, and what if something were actually wrong?

Orville is wondering around in his pajama, so I address him first, in case he knows what is up.

"Orville, what is your brother doing? Is he playing on the computer?"

"Yeah. He keeps dropping Harry Potter off a cliff."

So it wasn't The Cherubim screaming at all. It was Harry Potter, which was verified a moment later when peels of laughter floated up the stairs as The Cherubim laughed at the falling Harry Potter.

Meanwhile, the Elf King had appeared and was running around the living room like a living airplain chanting "Harry Potter Quittich. Harry Potter Quittich" over and over again.

And that, Folks, is what life is like here.

Orderly chaos. How I miss it!

My sister and my niece live with me (And my aunt, she was looking at buying a house around the same time I was looking to move to Columbus for school, so it worked out well)and one day, as I was downstairs playing an old playstation game, I noticed that my niece was making really weird noises. This weird sort of "Bao!" sound. Being 14 months old or so, she makes weird noises all the time, so even though this wasn't the typical sort of noise she makes, I blew it off... Until I killed an enemy unit in the game, and she made the "Bao" noise after the enemy died. She was imitating the scream that characters make in Final Fantasy Tactics when they die... which, due to old hardware, sounds just about nothing like a scream. I was simultaneously amused and slightly horrified.

That is both amusing and horrifying...like finding your ten-year-old autistic son dropping Harry Potter off a cliff over and over again.

When my boys first played City of Heroes with John, all they wanted to do was take characters up to great heights and drop them.
