What?

Many people play Wordless Wednesday. I do not like not talking on my own blog so I’m posting pictures and I’m gonna talk about them. You’d be lost without translation anyway.

Because can you imagine trying to interpret this?

Complete with a bite out of the apple. Who thought it would be a good idea to call a complex where people are living way to close to each other with walls way too thin Eden? I guess they’re actually giving you a hint of what’s to come if you sign a lease here. Since the bite has been taken out of the apple the damage has been done and this ain’t going to be the happy, perfect garden. No, these living arrangements will be full of what came after the fall. “Hey, I’m sorry if your neighbor is yellin’ at his wife at three in the mornin’ and it sounds like he’s in your room. You see the bite outta that apple? This ain’t paradise.”

Second (and last) on your “What the…?” tour is a picture of Ashlyn’s hair:

Now she has never heard a Bob Marley song in her life, but I swear she’s growing dreadlocks. Does it shock you?

Now, we are in the south so technically it could be called an off-center rat tail. This is actually evidence of Ashlyn’s coping mechanism. When she’s tired or just generally stressed she starts curling that patch of hair. And with the weather being less humid it frizzes and mattes more easily. What I want to know is, is she really one of those dolls that the hair grows when you pull on it? I mean, look at how much longer that hair looks! If this is the secret to longer hair faster then I’ve just become a millionaire.

I’m tempted to encourage her to do this to all her hair. Wouldn’t that be awesome!?! Like the little five year old boy we used to know who had a mohawk. Who would mess with her on the playground with a head full of dreads? And less fuss for me too. Isn’t that what it’s all about anyway?

So, the Eden Apartments picture got me thinking. That is a pretty “interesting” name for apartments. For anywhere really when you’re going to describe your Eden with a bitten apple. What are some of the weirdest place names you’ve seen? Let me know in the comments and we can all go “what the…?” together.

    Eden East. That’s a pretty crazy place name, and I don’t think I can top it.

    What I want to know:
    Is it supposed to be East of Eden, OR
    The East Side of Eden?

    Maybe they mean like the Upper East Side of Manhattan? Ooooooh, Classy!

  2. Or, is it ON that little bite that has been taken out?

    Love the hair! Maybe I should have Fran pull on hers like that, cause she just doesn’t have much happenin’ there. Probably a good thing, though, cause she won’t let me put it up in ponytails or clips.

    LOL! looove the hair! Love the pic in my head of a little Sweetie covered with white dreds right after waking up too!! Too bad you don’t “do” Halloween–(we don’t either but I miss the fun dress-up part!)

    I have a bad name for ya too–A drive-by coffee place called cup-o-jo has a sandwich called a BBQ JOEY –eeeeuw!!! -I told the guy I am NOT eating anything that sounds like a baby kangaroo! Coffee shops have the BEST names though don’t they? Daily Grind…Latte Da…Wholy Grounds…Brewed Awakening….most of them do not serve fountain Coke though–thumbs down!

  4. Okay…..I love the offset rat tail! Poor little Ashlyn, always getting the spotlight whether she wants it or not.

    The Eden East thing is funny but is hysterical when you add your commentary!

  5. My little one has this weird thing about pulling the hair on the tip-top of his head out when he’s trying to go to sleep or when he’s just waking up. We’ve watched him on the video monitor — he’ll pluck it, look at it and then twirl it after it’s out of his head.

    Have you ever seen a 2 year old with a comb over?

  6. Oh.my.gosh! I am laughing so hard!

    Love your blog–you crack me up!

    The funniest part? How you thought who would mess with a 5 year old with a head of dreads…I can’t stop laughing!

    LOVE your blog! Love it!
