Villainy and Other Dark Objects

We're having a quiet morning/early afternoon, until we attend a birthday party later today. We're watching Danny Phantom and Abby says that Ember is her favorite villain. For those who don't want to read that whole link, suffice it to say that Ember is a goth ghost chick, who uses rock-n-roll as mind control (hey, that rhymes!). Lizzy pops up with, "you know who my favewit bad guy is?" and we wait, because usually these declarations are pretty funny. We expect it to be someone from Danny Phantom - maybe Vlad (the series' Big Bad) but noooo...

"My favwit bad guy is the Peculiah Puhple Pieman of Pohcupine Peak, Ya-duh-duh-DAH-duh-DAHHHH!"

Last night Abby conked her right eyebrow - hard - on her bed frame. It started to swell, rapidly, so we slapped some ice on it and gave her some ibuprofen before bed (it just occurred to me that these little bruise-type injuries usually happen around bedtime; I wonder if fatigue is a factor). Today it's a tiny bit swollen but looks more like she's wearing subtle (and skillfully-applied) eye makeup.
