i am still on an estrogen high + buzzing with excitement from the fun of blogher + meeting wonderful female bloggers + sponsors. i have so many ideas, new pals + new blogs to write on + collaborations, plus it's summer.
mod*tot has 1 more week of summer school + 1 month of summer vacation before kindergarten starts. she did the funniest thing a couple days ago. we were at the stanford research institute, which is a very top secret laboratory building. very smart people were gathering to discuss artificial intelligence. i was spinning her around outside after playing in the lobby of the mid century modern building. we were asked if she was a scientist. i proudly said "yes, she is a stanford student." a pizza delivery person brought pizza into the building where there was a group of people filling the lobby, then a man told us he was locking the door. mod*tot went into the lobby + dissappeared in the crowd. i went in as the front door was locked + the large group proceeded down a hall. i called for her + looked behind the security desk. a man said she went with the group. i followed at the back of the large group down long hallways of open + closed office doors of scientists + researchers. i loved the building. someone said the wireless mouse + other amazing devices were invented there. we made a few turns + went up several flights of stairs then another hallway + another staircase + a hallway + it flashed in my mind i might never find her. luckily, when i got to the huge conference room she was there standing at the front + said, "pizza?"
they kindly gave her some pizza + told us a shortcut to get out of the building, but we got lost + went down a hallway past interesting scientific posters + i was startled when i passed some double doors with windows + saw a man lying on a gurney with a bunch of robotic devices around him. i looked again + realized it was a realistic doll. i held mod*tot up to see. very interesting. i don't recognize any of those machines from my cancer treatment. we were still eating pizza + reading funny cartoons on office doors when a security guard discovered us + started chatting, then said, "how did you get in here? this is a secret secure area." ooooooops

Sounds like an awesome somewhat futuristic adventure! Hooray for curiosity!
Better than Disneyland!
Mod Tot is such a foil! She's a little dynamo! XO
Sounds like something my five-year old and almost-Kindergartener would do! Kind of makes me wonder how we're related...
inquiring mind and healthy tummy
