I’m thinking –

  • Desperately trying to maintain some semblance of taste in music despite the presence of two small boys, one of whom demands HIS songs, but has thankfully decided that ‘Kids’ by MGMT is actually one of his songs.
  • Parent attempting to deal with aforementioned offsprings’ challenging behaviour.
  • Parent attempting to keep kids entertained and informed through cheap books.
  • Parent needing to spend more time hiding in the basement exercising.
  • The last person on the planet to have not yet read Twilight (it’s coming to Cuba with me).
