Lola Answers Your Questions

Hughman asked, "1. Are you planning on learning to cook like your dear mother once you get the new stove?"

"No, not really. I don't really enjoy cooking, but I like baking cookies."

"2. are you looking forward to one day going to summer camp?"

"Soooort of, but, you know. Yeah."

"3. It sounds like you enjoy acting from your performances at school. would you want to be an actor when you're older? what actors do you like? "

"YES YES YES! [directs mother to type in capitals] I like Angelina Jolie! And Johnny Depp!"

NonymousGoatsePants asked, "If Mom-dude was a shape (Circle, triangle, square, duo-decahedron, etc.), which shape would she be and why? Same question for Dad."

"I think circle because I imagine a circle being nice. And Daddude would be a triangle because triangles look smartsy. I mean square. Yeah."

Christy asked, 1. If you had to eat the same thing every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

"CANDY! But my second choice would be pizza."

"2.What is your favorite book?"

"I have a lot of favorite books, but a lot and a lot more of books I hate. My favorites are any Octonauts books, Clarice Bean books, yeah. I hate and I say hate, so many I can't remember. I really dislike.... Can you really write down what I'm saying?"

"I AM writing down what you're saying."

"But not like 'uh.'"

"Go back to the books!"

"Uhhhhhhhh..... (giggles) uhhh....... I really dislike, um, uh, I have a question."

"What is it?"

"Tough question!"

"What is your tough question?"

"NO! I was saying to the person, 'that was a tough question'!"

"Let's go on to the next one."

Carroll: "What do you like best about living in San Francisco?"

"Probably [long, thoughtful pause], I don't know. There are no chinchillas around here, you know. I mean, also, have you ever seen a chinchilla before? Not in San Francisco at least."

"But what do you like about it?"

"Well, I like the, uh, good building things?"

"Do you have anything else to add, Lola?"

"There's good cookies."

OMG! it was like having your question answered by the president at a town hall meeting!!

Carroll said...

No chinchillas, eh?

I would never in a million years have come up with that particular asset related to urban living :-)

Thanks, Lola!

So, to sum up:

SF is kinda boring, there's no cute furry animals, blah, blah, blah.

But there's good cookies.

Ok, I'm in. If it wasn't for the lazy throwback hippies, that is. Industrious throwback hippies, I can deal with.

And I think she was right about Dad-dude the first time around. He's a triangle. triangles are better than squares. You can make any shape by sticking appropriate triangles together. Not so with squares.

NonymousGoatsePants said...

Actually, I just had a thought. There's a class of shapes you can't make with triangles. One of them is a circle.

Although, technically, with an infinite number of really small triangles...

I guess what I meant was you can make any polygon, not shape, out of triangles.
