Things that mystify me

This is a writing project for the Blue Sloth, who has asked for contributions on a theme, things that mystify me.

TTMM posts that have been made so far by contributors

I am constantly amazed at my children. Just the other day Erin came out with "you are a freaky blue dad". Now freaky is not a word that we use in our house. Not that its banned or anything, just not used. Miranda does say "you're freaking me out" occasionally, though when I asked her she had no idea what that meant. I haven't heard the word freaky out of my wifes or my mouth that I can remember, yet here Erin is calling us all freaky.

Another example of things that mystify me is the unconditional love and aceptance from them. Tonight Miranda said "you are a fun Dad." Then she followed that up with "You will always be a fun Dad to me, Trust me!"
I was rocked - and amazed and very loved and it felt great.

Later on Mercedes came and gave me an unrequested hug, throwing herself onto me and looking up at me with her big puppy dog eyes and just hugging me tight - awesome!

On Monday I damaged my back, I hope its just a muscle strain. However I have been in pain for the last 3 days. Tonight Jadeen gave me an awesome massage. It mystifies me where she gets the strength in her hands. It was great - thanks Jade.

I am totally mystified by these humans that are my kids, I love them!

RL Preacher describes it well

The RLP or Real Live Preacher Gordon describes inside his head, though its a pretty good description of mine as well.

Freaky Blue Dad

Apparently I am a freaky blue Dad.
Jude is a freaky Green Mum.
Miranda is freaky purple, Jadeen freaky pink, Erin freaky Yellow and Mercedes freaky red.

This is Erin's description of us and our favorite colours.


How to make a 12000 foot fall and survive

"It's the most gut-wrenching, mesmerising and shocking clip of video footage imaginable.

Shot from the tiny camera in the helmet of champion skydiver Michael Holmes, it records with chilling clarity what happened when he plummeted 12,000ft to earth."

Story and pics

Video footage from helmet cam and also his mates cam (Note: this didn't work in Firefox but did work in IE7)
