Me & My Muse – Day 1621: Jedi Hangover

What do you get when you stay up until one in the morning and wake up at five in the morning?  You get a Jedi Hangover.  It’s really just a headache.  The movie was good, but the next day side effects aren’t.

Okay.  The headache really isn’t as bad as I’m making it out to be.  Now I’ll get to the movie…

That’s strange.  My Muse is not responding.  I’m guessing that she’s still sleeping.  We’ll discuss the movie when she’s awake.  I promise.

My Muse is still eight years old today.  She is 3’2″ tall and she weighs 41 pounds.  The height of a four year old and the weight of a five year old.

Today’s high is going to be 26 degrees and the silver lining will be having the weekend off.

To all of you who have experienced next day headaches,  I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

*Muse flashes and turns into an adult in her sleep*

Muse:  *snore* No…Snoke…Stay away…AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!


Me & My Muse Go To the Movies #9: Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Part I

I just got back from the movie, and…


Muse:  We’re not doing this.


Muse:  I enjoyed the movie a lot.  I’m just too tired to discuss it tonight.  Can we discuss it tomorrow after I get some sleep?  Good night!

Sure.  We can do that.

Just to let you know, the movie was good and tomorrow, I’ll tell you why…

Me & My Muse – Day 1620B: Big Premiere

Well, I’m at the movie theater now.  I’m very sorry that my Muse has to miss this.  The movie starts in an hour.  The lobby is getting packed and it’s full of excitement.  I wish that we could share the excitement together, but we can’t.  She’s just an eight year old girl with all the restrictions…


Meanwhile, in the Muse’s room…

Muse: It’s not fair!  Why do they have to be so stupid about me seeing the movie?  I love Star Wars!  I loved it since I was a teenager…Wait!  I was a teenager?

Muse:  Urrr…This stupid body.  Why do I have to be eight years old?  Oh yay.  I can use the potty now like a big girl but I still can’t hold it at night…*sigh* These stupid diapers…When can I stop wearing them?  I can remember being fully potty trained before I turned three!  Wait!  How am I remembering all of this?  Have I lived…another life?

*Muse glances at her hands and sighs*

Muse:  That’s right.  All my memories are still there, but they’re repressed when I’m this age so I can remember any of them.  But how am I remembering them?  Urgh!  I wanna see Star Wars!  But I can’t!  ‘Cause I’m a stupid little girl.  Adults get to do everything!  But I am an adult!  An adult trapped in this body!  Why can’t I escape?  *sigh* It doesn’t matter.  I can’t see Star Wars:  The Last Jedi… *sniff*

*Muse closes her eyes and begins to sob uncontrollably*

Muse:  No!  I wanna see Star Wars!  I wanna see Star Wars!  I WANNA SEE STAR WARS!!!!  I WANNA SEE IT! I WANNA SEE IT!!!

*Muse begins flashing brightly*


Muse continues flashing and grows taller while she was still crying*

Muse:  I WANNA SEE IT!!!! I WANNA…Wait!  Why does my voice sound different?  Wait a second…I’m an adult!  Let’s try something out…

*Muse flashes and shrinks back to her eight year old self*

Muse:  And now I’m eight!  That’s pretty cool!  Can I do this?

*Muse creates a clone of herself laying fast asleep in her bed*

Muse:  I can!  Now I’ll turn back…

*Muse flashes and grows back to her adult self*

Muse:  Yay!  I can go and see Star Wars after all!  And I still have my ticket!  I bought it while I was still a giant…

*Muse runs into the bathroom and begins shuffling clothes around*

Muse:  I need to change into my Princess Leia costume!  I’ll get the buns…And now my robe…and there.  Kyle, you better save a seat for because I’m coming!  I get to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi!  Yay!

*Muse flies into the air towards the movie theater*

Me & My Muse – Day 1620: The Last Jedi Begins Tonight…

For those of you who don’t know, Star Wars: The Last Jedi begins tonight.   I already have my movie ticket, so that really simplifies things…

Oh yeah.  This is the part where my Muse would be excited about seeing the movie.  But with her in the middle of her childhood transformation cycle, she won’t be able to see it with me tonight.  She is only eight years old, and with the movie being rated PG-13, there will be a multitude of material that would be inappropriate for her little eyes to see.  And with her little body, she would easily pass for a four year old.  She is only 3’2.5” tall and she weighs 43 pounds.  The weight of a six year old.  And even if she could see it, the showtime is at 10:15, which is well past her bedtime.

So…*sigh* Muse, I will see this movie for you.  I will miss seeing your Princess Leia costume this year and your geeked out excitement for what could possibly be one of the most exciting Star Wars movies to date…*sniff* Excuse me…I don’t mean to…OH MUSE, I’M REALLY GOING TO MISS YOU!!! WHY DID YOU HAVE TO BE A CHILD DURING THIS TIME?  WHY?!!!

*blows tissue and wipes eyes* I’m very sorry about that.  Anyway, I’m going to miss her Princess Leia buns and the rest of her costume.  Don’t worry, Muse.  We will watch this movie together when it comes out on Blu-Ray.  I will go out and buy it, and we will make it a special night.  And you can wear your Princess Leia costume.  It will be our own little private “premiere” of the movie.  We can pretend it is.  with movie popcorn and everything.  For you, I will do that.  I will even make myself forget everything about the movie with my One Privilege so that we can both be surprised together.  Oh Muse…Don’t be sad.  We will both watch it in a few months…

For today, I work an early morning shift.  As for later, I will be going directly to the movie…WITHOUT MY MUSE!!!  Sorry again.  There would be a brief discussion about the movie with my Muse, but that will wait until we see it in the spring.  There will be a full movie review this weekend as well.  So stay tuned for that.

Today’s high is going to be 19 degrees and the silver lining is seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi tonight.

To all of you who like seeing a good movie, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  But mooooom!  I want to see it!

Nurture:  I’m sorry, honey.  Both me and your daddy have already discussed this.  We do not think that it’s a good movie for you to see at your age.

Remedy:  Plus you don’t even look like you’re eight!  To a lot of people, you look four…

Muse: But I can go if you both take me!

Nurture:  Honey, it’s rated PG-13.  The answer is no.

Muse:  MOM!!!!

Me & My Muse – Day 1619: Snow Problem

Well, I just finished shoveling snow at my grandparents.  To cut things short, I worked, went to the store for groceries, caught up on last week’s episode of Survivor, and shoveled some snow at my grandparents.

My Muse is six years old today.  She is 3’0.5″ tall and she weighs 35 pounds.  The height of a three year old and the weight of a four year old.

Today’s high is going to be 19 degrees and the silver lining is being home where I’m safe from all the treacherous snow covered roads.  It’s supposed to snow anywhere from 5-9 inches, stopping at around midnight.

To those of you who are trying to keep up with the snowstorm, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  School is closed tomorrow!  Yay!  Tomorrow, I’m gonna play in the snow!  Tee hee…

Me & My Muse – Day 1618: Ice Cold NESday

With another day of work done, nothing beats having my friend come over on a cold day like this.

So that I’m ready for his arrival later, I’m going to cut this short.

My Muse is seven and a half years old today.  She is 3’1.5″ tall and she weighs 38 pounds.  The height of a three year old and the weight of a five year old.  She’s still in school so I can’t really visit her yet.

Today’s high is going to be 18 degrees and the silver lining is my friend coming over later on.

To those of you who like hanging out with friends, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  There. Finished my times tables and my two English worksheets!  Now for Social Studies…

Me & My Muse – Day 1617: More Footage and a Possible Friend Visit…

With the first day already done at work, I can enjoy what’s left of this day off.

This would begin with watching some more Christmas footage. I have to begin watching Christmas of 1993 and 1994. Once I get through that, the other years will go by faster.

My friend may be coming over today, or I may be going over there.  It all depends on when my brother finishes at the post office.

Oh yeah, and I wrapped a couple more gifts. That’s about all for this day in a nutshell…

*gets teleported to Muse’s bedroom*


Muse:  Kyle! Look!

What is it?

Muse:  I went potty again!  I’m a big girl!

Nice…and I see that you’re wearing Hello Kitty underwear?  You might want to put your dress back on…

Muse:  Sorry.  I was excited and I just wanted to show you!  Come here, Kyle!


*Muse runs over to her drawer and pulls over the top one*

Muse:  See?  I have Frozen underwear with Elsa and Anna, My Little Pony underwear, Hello Kitty underwear, and lots of Disney Princesses!

Why do you have so many different drawers?

Muse:  Oh.  My mommy told me that my age changes everyday.  I’m four years old today.

Oh, and it looks like she measured you too.  You’re 2’10” and you weigh 30 pounds.  The height of a two year old and the weight of a three year old.

Muse:  But I’m FOUR!

Yes you are.  But you’re small for your age.

Muse:  That’s what mommy said.  But she told me that I’m still a big girl…

Where’s your parents?

Muse:  Oh!  I need to tell mommy that I went potty!  I just wanted to show you and show you my pretty underwear in my drawer.  Bye bye Kyle!

*gets teleported back to reality*

Well, that was a little cute.  I’m glad that she’s so excited to use the potty.  All of those characters on her underwear really help.  I did however see a pack of nighttime diapers in the corner.  That’s definitely going to come last.  I hope that she grows soon.  I kind of miss her as an adult…

Today’s high is going to be 28 degrees and the silver lining is getting some gifts wrapped and being done for the day.

To those of you who like Christmas memories, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Nurture:  Good job honey!  Here’s another M&M!

Muse: Thanks, mommy…

*Muse takes M&M into her room, closes the door and clones it over 100 times*

Muse (grabs a large handful of M&M’s and eats them):  Thanks for the M&M’s, mommy!  Tee hee!
