Hello.

Wow, it's been a while. Which, of course, I say every time I post, and it doesn't encourage me to post more often. *rolls eyes at self*

Nothing too much is new; work is as beastly and deplorable as ever, so I'm viewing and applying for other positions every week.

Hubby and Boychild are both in good health and happy. Boychild is trying wrestling this winter at school - we don't have the slightest idea why, but hey, it's exercise. He'll do tennis again in the spring.

My parents and sister were approved to move into our apartment complex, and they actually got to have the one right across the hall from us. This is a really awesome thing, and so we've been busy helping them move in bit by bit each weekend lately. We both leave our doors unlocked during the day, which enables us to just go back and forth between the two apartments. They don't have a microwave yet, so they come over to use ours; if someone's in one bathroom, we can go across the hall to use the other one. It's just really nice, too, having them right there.

We've also been going to the Y when we can. Not often lately, but things have calmed a little, so we're going to try a few visits this week. We all love the pool, though we're going to try more with the weights, too.

Finally got a new library card (my wallet was stolen a couple years ago and I just never replaced the card), so we've been in and out of the library again. Have a few books on hold, but can't pick them up till tomorrow. Hubby's getting both The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection From the Living Dead and World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War (Max Brooks), and I'm getting Dreams From My Father (Barack Obama), What's So Amazing About Grace (Philip Yancey) and His Majesty's Dragon (Naomi Novik). I hear so many good things about the Temeraire series, I decided it was high time I looked it up and tried it. Thoughts?

I should really update my reading list here, but will wait on that one - formatting takes too long and I am too lazy at the moment.

In the meantime, I've been reading lots of Narnia fic, specifically [livejournal.com profile] rthstewart's work on both AO3 and ff.net - it is fantastic stuff and so worth the time it's taken to get through it all. The world-building is phenomenal and the writing exceptional.

I don't think I've anything else to report. How is everyone?

*frowns*

All right, we'll try this again. Note to self: Copy entire post before hitting the "post" button, just in case the entries page eats the damn thing again.

FLIST! It's been a while! I've been coming and reading entries, and keep telling myself I'm going to post "as soon as I have some time," but that never seems to happen. *rolls eyes at self*

Cut for length. )

I am sure there a million and one more things I could put here, but am drawing a blank. I find myself doing that more and more often...which is kind of sad, considering that two weeks from today, I will only be 34.

If you want an update on anything I haven't rambled about in this post already, please don't hesitate to ask! I want to get back into the habit of posting again, so hopefully it won't be so long a wait. ;)

EDIT: Dreamwidth People: Does anybody know why, when I move the mouse out of the entry box on the create entries beta page, the text in the box leaps upward? I don't mean the words switch places or anything, but the whole text body itself scrolls up each time I move the mouse out of the box, and never just stays where I left the damn cursor. I can even stop typing, move the mouse out, then back in and back out a couple times without typing at all, and it will keep scrolling up a bit with each movement in and out. I'll check the bug list thingy later, of course, but thought I'd pose the question here, just in case anyone has a quick, easy answer. ....I wonder if it does this from home. I'll have to check; at work I'm forced to use IE8, but use firefox at home.

I had an email from my sister today because she saw this picture and thought of me.

And you know, I think I love this more than our current tree:

I love it so much, I kind of wish I'd thought of it!
psyche29: A brown eye with rainbow eyeliner all around it (fairycake)
1. Nothing too new from Friday's post. I went to the doctor; I am showing signs of "ulnar nerve compression," and have been referred for physical therapy and possibly an EMG. I don't want the EMG because it requires sticking my arm with several sharp things, so we'll see if PT helps, first. The only thing that didn't fit with the UNC diagnosis was the swelling, so they're going to keep an eye on it.

Also, it has been recommended that my workspace have an ergonomic evaluation by the safety education coordinator - who will have a field day because none of these workstations are ergonomically correct in any way whatsoever.

So now I have a wrist brace thing, which I have discovered I hate. Passionately. But I wear it most of the time. I have to take it off here and there because DAMN, it is irritating - and a little painful - but I'm mostly behaving myself.

2. Boychild had his very first school dance on Friday. A Halloween dance, of course; he and one of his best friends, Thing 1 (Thing 2 is one grade behind them in another school), went together to eat free pizza and see what exactly a "dance" is all about. Neither of them danced apparently, but they played pool and ate pizza and drank soda and ogled some girls they don't want to admit to finding attractive. I am assuming this is typical 13-year-old boy behavior; both are interested in the possibility of more dances.

I feel bloody OLD. Didn't I just get home from a junior high school dance five days ago? *sigh*

3. Hubby and I killed time while the boys were at their dance by first hitting up Trader Joe's - they have so much great stuff. We picked up some pumpkin cream cheese and gingersnap cookies (dip the cookies in the cream cheese and ZOMG, autumn treat heaven, I shit you not), some chai mix and cereal, and "toscana cheese brushed with cinnamon," which is the reason I wanted to go in the first place. SO. GOOD.

After that, we spent the rest of our time in Barnes & Noble, ogling books. [livejournal.com profile] superbeffie, I picked up The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and proceeded to devour it. I still need to read the other two, but I read the first and am willing to discuss it with you if you want!

4. Made cheeseburger chowder for dinner yesterday, and the crock pot just wasn't big enough. Had to move it into a huge canning pot to finish cooking the last couple hours. Our crock pot has served us very well for 11 years, but we're going to need to pick up another for bigger jobs, I think. Regardless, the soup turned out great and I have leftovers for lunch. Nom.

5. Boychild has not yet decided whether he's going to trick-or-treat tonight. We've left it up to him, but whether or not he goes, this is his last year. He carved a pumpkin last night (after getting Grandma to clean it for him, the wimp), and it's on the balcony now.

6. Huh. I don't think I have a six. Guess that means I'm done for now!


HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

Yowser, it's been a busy few weeks. It never seems like it, though, till I get down to the wire (aka Three Days Till We Leave For The Lake). This is when it seems like there are a million and eighteen things to do.

So, like any self-respecting journaler, I am putting it off for a little longer in order to recap here. Duh.

I'm straining under the weight of so many things to get done before we leave on Saturday, but I know that once we leave, it's going to be a great week.
psyche29: The teeth of the Monster Book of Monsters, text "Good Books Don't Bite" (good books don't bite)
So I'm sitting here at work, trying to plow through all this STUFF, and come across a stickie that has the title and author of a book recommended to me by [livejournal.com profile] superbeffie. Then I realized that I really haven't gone through and updated my reading list in far too long.

So I've spent some of this lunch hour doing just that; I've deleted a few books here and there that I might have wanted to read at one time but no longer have an interest in, struck-through the ones I've completed since the last time I updated, added a couple that weren't on the list before (including Beth's recommendation), and then renumbered the list.

Several of these, I've checked out but didn't get a chance to read them before they were due...which is why they remain on the list even though I've had them in my possession before.

Updated Reading List )

If I ever get to the point where I update this on a more regular basis, I'll make sure to clear the ones I've read off the list entirely. Right now, however, they serve as a reminder to myself of what I've read.

Now I just need to pay my library fines so I can go check out more books. It's only ten bucks, but I'm slow and lazy. *snerk*
psyche29: A brown eye with rainbow eyeliner all around it (unless I'm wrong)
1. So I'm lagging behind again, as per usual, but that makes this no less heartfelt. To all the moms on my flist, whether your children are human or otherwise:

Happy Mother's Day!!


On Saturday afternoon, the boychild decided to get a subtle hint across:

Boychild: "Mommy, you can sleep in as long as you want tomorrow."
Me: "I can? As long as I want?"
Boychild: "Yup." ... "But you should sleep on your BACK."
Me: *trying hard not to snicker and giggle*

Now, I would say that maybe only moms might understand the reasoning behind that suggestion, but my cousin's wife, who is a mom herself, didn't get the implication, so I can't assume everyone reads into it what was so easy to see. It was his way of ensuring that I would be in the proper position for him to set a tray on my lap in the morning, brimming with "breakfast." ROTFL.

I got scrambled eggs with cheese melted on them, pancakes nearly drowning in syrup, bacon too crisp to eat and burnt toast slathered with butter and strawberry jam. Despite some of these unfortunate things, it was still the best breakfast ever. And he was so excited to have done it. ♥♥♥

Hubby made a fabulous roast beef with potatoes, carrots and celery for dinner, and Yorkshire pudding to go with it, and there was ice cream for dessert. We invited my parents and sister over to join us and had a lovely evening.

2. We didn't go to the church yesterday. We'd planned on it, quite forgetting that it was going to be Mother's Day. So we intend to aim for NEXT Sunday. Hubby already has another church picked out to try after that one. He's leaning hard toward a United Church of Christ church, because based on what he's read and his growing-up-experiences, they seem to be most closely aligned with what we both believe.

I have a hard time in the whole church/religion department. Do I believe in God/Jesus? Yes. Do I subscribe to one set of rules for how best to follow Him? Hell, no. I don't always have the greatest amount of faith, I don't habitually - or even easily - pray (though that's a whole other kettle of fish), I don't believe that to be a good Christian, you have to go to church every Sunday. From any church I attend, I expect to be accepted however I choose to arrive, whether I am in formal attire or rags. I expect that my thoughts and opinions are respected, whether or not they are agreed with. I expect that ANYBODY is welcome to join in, regardless of age, race, religion, sexual orientation or anything else that I'm currently forgetting to include. I expect that questions are accepted and considered thoughtfully, if not encouraged, and I expect that should I choose to regularly continue attending the church, I am not required to TAKE A CLASS.

I know I'm kind of all over the place with this whole discussion, I haven't exactly thought my points through very clearly, so bear with me, here. This whole "You have to take a class before you can be a member of this church" thing...NONONONONO. I want no part of any church that requires me to attend a class in order to be fully welcomed. That's not acceptance, that's not CHRISTIAN. My parents' church made them take a class in order to be members. My dad said it was "to make sure they believed what the church believed." *snorts haughtily* I was so offended on their behalf, because God knows they didn't have the sense to be offended themselves. *rolls eyes* I love my parents, don't get me wrong; I simply despair over their version of "Christian."

So to sum up: If I'm attending a church, they need to accept me no matter how I look or what I believe, as well as any other human being. If they can't or won't, then it's not the church for me.

Reading back over this whole section, DUDE. Help me flesh this out. Ask me questions. Make me think about it. It feels like random points with no concrete frame, no solid foundation. Wait, scratch that last bit - my foundation is simply that we are all human, and all of us are worth the same, regardless of choices we make throughout our lives. But still - point out my wobbles, ask questions, help me firm this up into something that makes a little more sense. Or tell me if it already does (but I don't think so).

3. [personal profile] thefourthvine posted a FABULOUS rant Here. Fanfic lovers, enjoy. ♥

4. Speaking of fanfic...I have so many ideas, but so little motivation. I have chapters in my head for my next-gen, but the first sixteen need some overhauling before I put any of it down. I've been going round and round with some founders fic in my head, as well as a Rowena Ravenclaw one-shot that's trying to form. On top of all that, I've been reading a little bit of Narnia fanfic, and now have a couple one-shots in my head! I've never written fanfic outside of HP, so if I ever manage to sit down and just write, it should be interesting.

I think part of the whole motivation thing is not really knowing who - beyond myself, anyway - would want to give reading it a go. I mean, why bother penning it out if I'm the only one who cares anymore? *sigh*

But also, part of it is just knowing I have to overhaul what I have before moving on. I could write it down, but I just can't let what's come before sit there and continue eating at my brain - I have to fix it. asdf;lkj

5. I'm having an aversion to cuts, lately. Sorry.

6. I finally - just this morning, actually - found out what "tl;dr" means ("too long; didn't read"). And I have to say, I think sometimes my own entries get like that! *snerk* But oh well. If you regularly make it to the end of my entries, kudos to you. If you don't, well, at least it's still here for my own perusal. :)

7. My books are all due in 3 days. Boo. Now I have to gather them and go back to the library because I'm out of online renewals for all of them. *sad face*

8. That must be all for now. You know me, I'll post again if I feel the need. I hope you all had a good weekend!
psyche29: Tea in a white cup and saucer, sitting on a pink placemat (tea)
1. Feeling better today - definitely a good thing. :)

2. Dinner tonight at Bunny and John's, and kiddo will probably sleep over, so quiet evening! YAY!

3. Dad is out of the hospital. He was released yesterday shortly after noon. The docs have concluded that the chest pains were NOT his heart, thankfully. However, they don't know what DID cause the pains, so we're at a loss, there. Dad has a regular doc appt coming up soon, if not today (because I'm really bad with time, OK?), and hopefully he'll find out what he needs to do to be able to continue walking, as that's the more imminent threat right now.

4. My friend I mentioned earlier now has an LJ! I'm so pleased, I can't wait to show her the ropes. She may yet come to DW, too, but I'm STOOPID and messed up the web address. *rolls eyes at self* Either way, I'm glad she has an outlet available to her! Next step: teaching her how to navigate a forum. XD.

5. You guys, these shoes have HEART-SHAPED HEELS!! ♥♥♥

I AM LUSTING FOR THESE JUST A LITTLE BIT.

Found over on Fluevog.


6. Just renewed a bunch of books from the library online - handy little tool. Finally finished The Alchemist (Paulo Coelho) the other night. It was such a wonderful book; I'll need to procure my own copy of it. If you've read it, I'd like to chat with you about it.

7. Friday, I love you. Thank you for FINALLY dragging your ass here, because I am so beyond ready for the weekend!
psyche29: A brown eye with rainbow eyeliner all around it (Default)
1. Happy St. Patrick's day, flist! I haven't got a drop of Irish in me - and no, I don't particularly want any at the moment, thanks - but I'm wearing green anyway so as to avoid being pinched, because DAMN, people pinch hard! And as everyone is generally aware, I am pain-phobic. Because they always go for my upper arms! WTF is up with that?! God, those are the worst place EVER to poke me, pinch me, even TOUCH me with anything smaller than an entire hand. Ahem. Sorry, rant over.

2. It's Wednesday, but it feels like Tuesday. I want to say the time change is at fault for this, but it's really because I stayed home with Mike yesterday and it's apparently thrown me off. *rolls eyes at self*

3. A little bit of promo: the forum I participate on, Obliviate, is sorely in need of members. So few of our people go there now, and we've been contemplating shutting it down, which none of us really want. It's really not Harry Potter-oriented anymore - we discuss many various things, although it's harder when the four or five of us who still go there have said most of what we think already. We would LOVE some new blood in there, and I especially would enjoy it because I truly love it there and think that others would, too. We are friendly and welcoming and open; there's a serious/debate section and sections for books, movies, general lives and silly games. There's also an arcade with some fun games that are great for loosening the tension when you have a few minutes, and a market as well. Please feel free to check it out!

4. I went to Half-Price Books last week and found about twenty Betty Neels books - she's one of my very favorite Harlequin romance authors. I managed to narrow it down to four that I ended up buying, and I've now read every one of the four and added it to my swiftly-growing Betty Neels collection.

5. I also went to the library last Saturday and picked up The Screwtape Letters (CS Lewis) and The Alchemist (Paulo Coelho) since I never got around to picking them up the last time I had them on hold, Bridget Jones's Diary (Helen Fielding), What Jesus Meant: The Beautitudes and a Meaningful Life (Eric Kolbell), a website-building-for-dummies book, and Ballad: A Gathering of Faerie (Maggie Stiefvater).

I've gotten a few pages into Bridget Jones and been giggling, and last night I opened and read several pages of The Alchemist, which is lovely so far. I also have What Jesus Meant in my shoulder bag because I really do want to read it and will be more inclined to do so if there's nothing else in there to distract me while I'm out.

I've got maybe a chapter or two left of Born Round and still have From the Kingdom of Memory and The Golden Compass to be getting on with, as well.

Why, oh WHY do I keep checking out so many books? I'm telling you, it's a sickness. Can I just please move into the library?

6. Huh. I think that's everything for the moment! I hope you all have a wonderful day!
psyche29: Tea in a white cup and saucer, sitting on a pink placemat (tea)
1. First things first - I'm kind of surprised no one had anything to say about my last post. If you simply missed it but are reading this one, I would really appreciate thoughts on the previous one.

2. It was such a fabulous weekend. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, and we were kid-free till Sunday afternoon. Hubby and I had ourselves a day-long date on Saturday and it was perfect. We had an early lunch, did some shopping, just drove around for a few hours, did a little more shopping, took in a movie, had a late dinner and went home. MAN, did I love Saturday.

3. The movie we saw was Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, and it was very good. I love the books, and while obviously stuff had to be cut out for a movie, and of course they messed crap up, it was still very good, and made hubby want to read the book. Excellent. I also loved being able to prod him along through the movie, to be able to see a scene spread out and be able to say, "OK, what do you see a lot of? Who do you think they'll meet here? What do you think is happening here?" It was really fun to watch things click for him with just a word here, a prod there.

4. Cut for pictures! )

5. Speaking of this Saturday, Valerie and Bailey are visiting with baby Phoenix. They'll arrive Friday, and we'll probably see them Saturday or Sunday. I'll have to try to take pictures - for having a stupid name, the kid is way cute, and happy, too.

6. Big Bang Theory tonight - yay! XD.

Reading.

psyche29: The teeth of the Monster Book of Monsters, text "Good Books Don't Bite" (good books don't bite)
Been doing a bit of reading lately, mostly because several of my books are coming due at the library and I've run out of renews for a few of them. *sad face*

Updated Reading List )
psyche29: The teeth of the Monster Book of Monsters, text "Good Books Don't Bite" (good books don't bite)
1. I finished my Stephanie Plum book already - it's light reading, really, and I'd read it before. It was more of a refresher this time around, but still hilarious.

2. The other two books I checked out last weekend - Artemis Fowl (Eoin Colfer) and The Love of a Good Woman (Alice Munro) - I tried to get into them last night, but simply wasn't interested. I've already removed the first from my reading list. I'm willing to give the Munro book another try, so I'll hang onto it and try again in a few days.

Updated Reading List )

3. Put holds on SEVERAL books at the library. City of Glass (Cassandra Clare), Born Round: The Secret History of a Full-Time Eater (Frank Bruni), The Golden Compass (Philip Pullman), The Screwtape Letters (CS Lewis), Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception (Maggie Stiefvater) and From the Kingdom of Memory (Elie Wiesel) - and only the first one has a waiting list, which of course, works for me.

4. MIKEY HAS FOUND A BOOK HE LIKES. AND IT'S PART OF A SERIES. *does a boogie*
psyche29: A brown eye with rainbow eyeliner all around it (together)
1. I love lazy days like this. No place to go, nothing pressing to do. It's 11:21 A.M. and I'm still in my PJs. Yes, most certainly a lovely day.

2. Mom's surgery went well; it took just under an hour, and it only took that long because the node was wedged right up against a nerve. The biopsy came back and the growth was benign, so all is well. And I can already tell Mom's moving better. Thank you for any prayers and thoughts that were sent her way - she appreciates them.

3. Mikey has a retainer now. He has to wear it all the time except while eating and brushing his teeth. He hates it and complains about it, but is pretty good about not arguing too much. It looks like a slice of watermelon - he got to choose what it would look like - and even after two weeks, we can see the difference. We still don't think he'll manage to get out of having braces, but this is definitely helping. The first few days were amusing; we couldn't understand a word he said. ;)

4. Also, what IS it with this kid and his ability to lose crap?! I have lost three separate pair of gloves this season alone because he's lost three pair of his own, and mine in replacement! He's also lost two hats and a "burglar" hat, and a couple of scarves.

5. At work, Blanca taught me how to say "kiss my ass" in Spanish! *LMAO* She's so funny, she was like, "But it's REALLY bad, so don't tell anyone I told you!"

6. I MADE MY OWN HOMEMADE CHAI MIX. No more paying ridiculous prices for it in the store! Now I can heat up a mug of water and put in a few spoonsful of my homemade mix! Message me with your email addy if you want it, I've got it saved in Word format.

7. Finally made my oatmeal blueberry pecan cookies yesterday. SO. GOOD. I used my mom's oatmeal raisin recipe, but substituted blueberries for the raisins and used pecans instead of the usual walnuts. [livejournal.com profile] herminia wanted me to post the recipe, so here it is:

Oatmeal Blueberry Pecan Cookies )

8. Went to the library yesterday, picked up The Love of a Good Woman (Alice Munro) and Artemis Fowl (Eoin Colfer), as well as One for the Money (Janet Evanovich), which is the first of the Stephanie Plum novels. I've read through nine or ten, but want to start over so I can remember everything, as it's been a while.

9. That's about all - I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!
psyche29: The teeth of the Monster Book of Monsters, text "Good Books Don't Bite" (good books don't bite)
1. We went to the library on Saturday morning. I re-checked out The Stillest Day (Josephine Hart) since it was on the shelf, and also found Fire (Kristin Cashore) and The Magician's Guild (Trudi Canavan). I finished Fire before I went to sleep that night - it was VERY good.

Updated Reading List )

2. Had a lazy weekend, did a lot of reading. Went to Bunny and John's yesterday for split pea soup and grilled cheese sandwiches; watched the football game (YEAH, VIKES!!!) and got a fabulous box cut RIGHT ALONG THE CUTICLE on my left thumb. Bled like a stuck pig, straight through the first bandaid and well into a second. It's fine now, but MAN, did it hurt at the time.

3. Mom's CAT scan on Friday went fine, she gets the results today, so I'll have to call her later and find out what's up, since no one ever bothers to call me and tell me of their own volition. *rolls eyes*

4. Going up to Duluth for a little get-away next weekend. Cabin's all booked and I can't wait. Even if all we do is hunker down for the weekend inside the cabin, it will nice to get out of town for a couple days. I leave work early on Friday, and we come back Sunday afternoon - in time to watch the game!

5. GO VIKINGS!! I actually don't really know who will win - my team is excellent, but the Saints are AWESOME. It's going to be a tough game. I think we could win, but I have no delusions whatsoever regarding the Vikes' capability of bombing it. Either way, we'll tune in.

6. Go away, monthly annoyance. You're not wanted in this body.
psyche29: A brown eye with rainbow eyeliner all around it (tastes like happy)
1. So. Work is stressful. Friday night was... Let's just say that I have not been THIS stressed in a VERY LONG TIME. So many things are so very messed up, so very confusing and so very irritating; we get told nothing but are expected to be happy to keep producing while they dink around with this and that. Changes are one thing, but when you don't keep your people informed adequately or flat-out ignore them, their desire to just do the work wanes significantly.

On top of all this, my new manager? Her father suddenly passed away, so now she's gone in South Africa for a month. I feel horrible for her, because I'd probably lose it if that happened to me - but also, what horrible timing on the part of fate!

And there are people here who are already suspicious of the timing, wondering if she got a better offer from another place and jumped ship, since this particular ship is so wrought with holes. *rolls eyes*

2. I updated my reading list; I took a few books off because I don't know that I want to read them all. I'd rather just start with the first and see if I'm interested enough to move on to the others.

Updated Reading List )

I had The Alchemist (Paulo Coelho) on hold at the library, but never got there in time to pick it up, so it'll have to wait. Currently, I've started A Wind In The Door (Madeleine L'Engle), and I still have both The Stolen Child (Keith Donohue) and Letter to a Christian Nation (Sam Harris). I also picked up A Swiftly Tilting Planet (Madeleine L'Engle), since A Wrinkle In Time went so quickly.

3. Vikings play the Packers this Sunday at 3:00 P.M. I'm making a big-ass pan of tater-tot hotdish and inviting people over to watch the Vikes kick Packer ass...or lose miserably, as the case may be. I love me my Vikes, but I am not delusional about their abilities! Image and video hosting by TinyPic BETH - you and Dana and the girls are invited - we hope you can come! Let us know.

4. I've gotten more done at work yesterday and today than I have in the last two weeks combined. Is that sad? I'm just not into this whole supervisor thing. PAY = YES, PEOPLE = NO.

5. HALLOWEEN!

What are everyone's Halloween plans this year? We're spending the afternoon at Bunny and John's place, since that's where we'll be taking Mikey around for trick-or-treating. Mikey's going to be...get this...a WHOOPEE CUSHION. Image and video hosting by TinyPic I shit you not, he has the costume already and everything. As soon as I get a pic, I'll put it up, I promise.

6. That's all for now, methinks. ;)

1. The sick. I haz it. And I am not happy about it.

2. We went out of town over the weekend. It was a perfect fall weekend and we really had a nice, relaxing time. Except for the I-got-the-sick part, but that's OK - it was still good.

3. The super-late-but-I-hope-you-still-love-me day seven of the seven-day meme!

For one week, recommend/share:
Day 1: a song
Day 2: a picture
Day 3: a book/ebook/fanfic
Day 4: a site
Day 5: a youtube clip
Day 6: a quote
Day 7: whatever tickles your fancy

Day Seven )

5. Bedtime soon for the sick girl. Hope everyone had a good weekend!

We were in the car tonight on the way home, talking about a coupon we got in the mail today for a free chocolate bar. Mikey pipes up, "Hey, do you like Grande bars?"

Grande, of course, he pronounces in Spanish - just so you grasp the hilarity of this.

So we tell him that no, we have never in our lives heard of a "Grande" bar, and he replies, "Seriously? You guys haven't seen the commercial for it?"

"Didn't we just say that, Mike? We DON'T KNOW what a Grande bar is!"

"Well, they have this jingle, it goes, 'What would you do for a Grande bar?'"

Silence in the car.

Then laughter - HE MEANT A KLONDIKE BAR!! Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Day Four )

Tomorrow we're going to Bunny & John's to celebrate a belated Canadian Thanksgiving (hubby is Canadian). It's really more of an excuse for Bunny to cook a metric shit-ton of food for a bunch of people, and as it's Bunny's cooking, we'll be there with bells on - but of course, it's all good.

OK, that's it for now. Hope you all have a good weekend!
