it's about to get serious

ok, so now there is a family sitting in the children's room. i'm not sure where they are from but they barely speak english. after being here only a few minutes one boy, maybe about ten years old, walks up to the pencil sharpener WITH A CRAYON! what the hell is going on here? and then i shout, probably louder than neccessary, DO NOT PUT CRAYONS IN THE PENCIL SHARPENER! he of course had no idea what i was saying. but he did stop. and then i picked up and pencil and tried to mime that only pencils could go in the sharpener. not crayons. sheesh.
but here, for your viewing pleasure, is a video from sesame street about the making of crayons. it used to be one of my faves. sadly, i do not have speakers on my computer so i have no idea if this video has the original sound or some strange dubbing going on. let's just cross our fingers and hope for the best.

I had no idea crayon-in-the-pencil-sharpener was so common! What - is boy 5 handing out flyers in school asking everyone to do this, just to drive you crazy??

I always wanted to go to the Crayola Factory- I think it's in Pennsylvania. Heck, maybe that's what I'll do for my birthday this year!

i cannot wait to celebrate your birthday at the crayola factory. i wonder if they do parties there the way they do at bowling alleys and mcdonald's.
