Can you tell Grant's was chocolate?
The highlight for me was crawling 6 months pregnant up to the top of the tube maze hanging from the ceiling to find the crying birthday boy who couldn't find his way out. Other than that we had a great time.

So, there is a guy in France, who according to the google translator, blogs about strange and interesting media aimed at kids.
His banner prominently features the following picture:
along side this picture:
You might recognize the first picture as Ian from this blog. As for the second picture, I am pretty sure it is some sort of young (and hungry) vampire girl. Where did he find a picture of Ian? Who is this vampire girl?
I don't have all the answers, but this is what he says in a post about Yo Gabba Gabba, a new children's television show: (google translated)

OK - and then he links the video of Ian dancing to the Yo Gabba Gabba intro that you might remember from a previous post on our blog. Creepy French guy comments on Ian's video:
And already of the promising reactions, among which, this baby who shows us how the conscience of the child is already nourished of structuralism and can perfectly recognize the various key moments like the televisual episode. At 0:29, here is what purest satisfaction resembles.
Easily accessible pictures and information serves the purpose of providing quick updates to family and friends. Of course, it is just as readily available that guy. Anyways, something to think about.

PS. In case you are wondering, Ian IS "nourished of structuralism", mostly because we've really stressed that. I still don't know who the vampire girl is - Amy says she doesn't look like a young Romanian vampire.
