The Ministry of Information would like to state for the record that the portrayal of the EES was grossly fictional. While she is even more witty than her character in the "IT IS Finished" highly fictionalized screenplay of an actual event, she would like to say that her office has long been on record supporting the difference between finding a sale item onjectionable and finding a sale objectionable. She has also long been on the record opposing the use of the third person in references to oneself as grandiose and potentially schizo, as well as refuting them as a a defense strategy for the war on style. God bless America.
Thing One (that is the older one, the red head, for those of you who have a hard time keeping track) is just finishing up The Middle Ages.
Thing Two (the 8 year old, younger, blondish) is just starting The rise of Roman Empire. Due to their history studies they've both experienced a recent upsurge of interest in archery and swordplay. I try to console myself with the thought that it's better than guns.
