Here is another favorite video of mine from Sesame Street. It's Cookie Monster's version of the original song, "Call Me Maybe," by Carly Rae Jepsen, except that Cookie Monster is referring to cookies and his version of the song is called, "Share It Maybe." So stinkin' cute!
Dear Mr. Mia,I need to tell you something.
Before I do, let me update the rest of the world (obviously) on the situation:
BACKGROUND: Mr. Mia had proudly purchased a set of Melissa and Doug Animal Magnets for our toddler. Mr. Mia has basically taught our 18-month-old the name of every single animal that exists, and both Mr. Mia and "Baby Mia" (our daughter) have been extremely proud of themselves since the beginning of this endeavor.
Baby Mia's favorite animal magnet was "piggy" (which she pronounced as "Piggayyyyy!").
Mr. Mia's favorite animal magnet was, also, Pigggaayyyy.
Unfortunately, one of our dogs (probably our Puggle, Bammer) also had a favorite animal magnet - it turns out that Bammer loved Piggy too....
Mr. Mia, I need to tell you something...
Mr. Mia, I need to tell you something: Bammer ate Piggy. This is my confession: Bammer ate the Piggy magnet.
She probably thought that it was bacon.
Bammer, our overweight Puggle (the dog that, according to our veterinarian, is at a serious risk for Type 2 Diabetes), probably thought that Piggy was bacon. I suspect that the Piggy magnet was sitting on our living room floor (after our toddler had probably grabbed it from the fridge and left it there); so, naturally, our dog, Bammer, probably just thought that Piggy was bacon. And what dog can seriosuly resist bacon?
Therefore, it's really not Bammer's fault. If anything, Bammer is extremely intelligent for associating a piggy magnet with bacon (after all, she's only a dog), and dogs love bacon.
So, if you think about it, we should be grateful for having such a brilliant dog in our lives; we could make millions.
So, back to my confession to Mr. Mia. This is how it happened:
9-days ago, I walked into our living room - only to see the remains of Piggggayyy (piggy magnet), ripped apart on our floor. You couldn't even make-out piggy's head - it was a gruesome scene - but I recognized Pigggayyy from the remains of his curly tail and his blue magnet background. I swore to myself that I wouldn't tell a soul what I had just witnessed.
Then, 5-days-ago, Mr. Mia walked into our living room and asked me where Piggy-Magnet was - I didn't respond; then, he said, "I guess Piggy-Magnet is gone..."...(followed by the saddest face that I've ever seen)....then he walked away with his head down. It was so sad.
This has been eating me up inside for the last 9-days.
It is killing me.
Mr. Mia: Bammer ate Piggy. I helped dispose of the body.
I'm so sorry. Please forgive me.
Create Passwords That Help You Break a Bad HabitHave a bad habit that you want to quit? I read an article on Lifehacker.com that suggests an idea how helping you quit a bad habit by generating passwords that reinforce that idea. The idea is that you reinforce an idea in your brain through repetitive typing. Most people type in passwords for their various online and computer accounts (bank, email, computer login, etc.) multiple times a day; so if you create a password that has a personal goal of yours built into it somehow, then this can help you to quit a bad habit by reinforcing that idea in your brain through repetitive typing.
So, instead of making a password such as "baseball1234" or using your previous telephone number as your password (which is a terrible idea), consider making your password something that can help reinforce breaking a bad habit; the example that Lifehacker uses is "Iwillquit$smoking."
Here are some of my ideas for passwords that I should create for myself but won't because that would be stupid seeing as I this is a public post:
Realistically, I probably won't give up wearing my maternity pants. I love comfy pants way too much (see My Love Letter to Yoga Pants for more on that).

What are your bad habits?
