Some more awesome Elayna stuff.

Mommy & Elayna 2010
Elayna: "So I was having an argument online with a British friend, and he said 'I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of our health care.' I said, 'I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of the Gulf of Mexico.'"

Last night, swashbucklr brought me a stuffed winged unicorn.
Me: "A pegacorn!"
Adam: "It could be a unisus."

I proceeded to educate him and swashbucklr on the nomenclature of mythical beasts.

Half an hour later, Elayna comes downstairs, and I start telling her about her grandparents' WTFery. Suddenly she squeaks and points - "PEGACORN!"

Reader, I cracked up.

My daughter knows it's a pegacorn. I'm just sayin'.

Elayna: "So wait, how did the pegacorn get here?"
Me: "Well, when a pegasus and a unicorn love each other very much..."

She, of course, meant when. I told her an hour ago. She said how? I said "Um, swashbucklr got here an hour ago too, if you recall."

Elayna: "I don't know! You could have had it for years. There are strange things everywhere in this house that I am discovering all the time. The house could have spontaneously manifested a pegacorn."

My daughter.

Man, I can't imagine being my age (about the same as your age, understand) and having a 15-year-old child. I know, my circumstances are not your circumstances, but she's impressive, you and Adam are impressive, and the way you all are together -- that's also impressive. I'm glad you have that.

I love how much you know Elayna rocks. As do you and Adam.

Well, it could have! I for one would not be surprised either.

It's an alicorn!

I know I've said this before, but it bears repeating: I hope I end up with a daughter as awesome as yours. :)

Your daughter totally will be!

I love your daughter stories! They give me hope for the next generation.

Well, when a pegasus and a unicorn love each other very much...

I LOLed. Like, for real. Not just smirking and typing "LOL." It's true. I have witnesses.

Considering that last night my study/library just manifested an ARC from 2002 written by Ellen Kushner and Delia Sherman, an ARC that I cannot recall picking up, but timing states it was at my very first "Stands With Fist" BEA adventure as a freelancer...

Anyway, being someone whose house manifests unseen/forgotten objects at will, I can relate to Elayna's need for an archaeological marker for a pegacorn.

The house could have spontaneously manifested a pegacorn.

I cannot tell you just how much I love that line....

It's time for me to do what I do rarely: Express happy amusement over an icon. Yours just made me chuckle.
20th-Jun-2010 03:59 am (UTC)
Thank you. It needed to be done.
20th-Jun-2010 04:08 am (UTC)
She is full of them!
19th-Jun-2010 08:01 pm (UTC) - *laugh*
1) I love reading about Elayna. She is delightful. Thank you for sharing her with us.

2) I tell people that in regards to our house, I can find what I need, plus or minus 10%. This usually makes no sense to them until they have been in the house. I'm betting yours works the same way though.

Aw, heck. Now I can't wait to meet her just a little bit more.
20th-Jun-2010 04:09 am (UTC)
I can't wait for you two to meet! <3

I'm just trying to process the idea of a house that spontaneous manifest stuff like that...

It would be awesome...and so's Elayna for coming up with that.

I'm having a hard time deciding if 'I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of the Gulf of Mexico.' or PEGACORN! wins the internet.

Damn, that is one impressive offspring you have.

That would be so very awesome.

When I grow up, I want to be Elayna.
20th-Jun-2010 04:10 am (UTC)
Me too. <3

I'd be very proud if I were you. Which you are. It shows. *grins*

So why would it be a pegacorn and not a unisus?
