Wheeeeeeeee!!!!! It's TUESDAY! Huzzah!
*From the I can't make this stuff up file:
Indy: Mom, what's line dancing?
Me: [explanation of line dancing] You've never heard of line dancing before?
Indy: I've heard of pole dancing.
Me (and James Bond): WHAT?
Indy: Yeah, but I don't know what it is. Why would you dance with a pole?
James Bond: That's it. No more TV. Ever.
*I think it was really inconsiderate of Prince William and Kate not to keep my due date in mind when picking a date for their wedding. I mean really, it's 4 days after Han Solo is due. How on earth am I supposed to make it to London? Gah!
*Have you watched Downton Abbey??? If not, rush over to PBS.org and watch it. It is brilliant! I can't wait for season 2. They're going to start filming
next this month and it won't air until the fall. Oh, agony!
*I want to see The Tourist, as it has my beloved Johnny Depp in it, BUT it also has that home wrecking Angelina Jolie in it AND I hear that she actually kisses Johnny! WTF?
*Egypt. Ugh. We were planning to go there this fall, but now I'm thinking, maybe not. Why can't we all just get along?
*Tunisia too! Darn it. We're planning to do the Disney cruise again this summer and one of the ports is Tunisia. We're guessing that's going to change. That's a bummer too because we had a good time in Tunisia (and found out I'm worth about $61,000) and were hoping to get to see Sidi Bou Said.
*Lest you think I'm heartless and think it's all about me (hey, it's my blog, so I guess it actually IS all about me), I do hope there is a peaceful resolve to what's going on in Egypt and Tunisia. Corrupt gov'ts suck (or so I gather) and I wish both countries a proper, caring government. And I'd like them soon so they don't disrupt my travel plans. Darn it, there I go again!
*I griped on FB last week about the price of Girl Scout cookies and the fact that the boxes are smaller with fewer cookies per box (if you read Friday's Dear So and So,-and why wouldn't you have?- you remember my rant) and said "WTF?" (well not the words, just the letters) and one of my friends asked if you could say WTF to the Girl Scouts. I say, yes, yes you can when they charge you $3.50 for a teeny, tiny box of Thin Mints. That's right, WTF Girl Scouts? WTF????
*Speaking of scouts, Indy has the Pinewood Derby this weekend. He's really looking forward to it. I am not. It's sooooo loud and the races take forever. Apparently it's frowned upon to show up just to watch your kid race and then leave. Sigh. The things I do for that boy.
*Speaking of that boy, he's griping about needing lunch. Isn't it enough that I go to the store to get the food? Must I actually prepare it too????? I guess so. I'll be back with more randomness later.
*Okay! The boy has been fed (tuna on whole grain bread and an apple in case you were wondering) and will be good for at least an hour, when he'll tell me he's hungry AGAIN. I swear I don't know where he puts it all.
*Latin. It's all Indy wants to do. I guess I shouldn't be complaining, but I do declensions in my sleep.
*I'm tired from lunch. Why is it when you eat, you often get sleepy? Shouldn't I be getting a burst of energy or something?
*Given my comments on the situation in N. Africa, I thought this sign appropriate (and more than a little funny):
*Also...the hell you say! He is not!
Okay, really I'm tired. I think I need a nap (after we finish Latin, which Indy is working on even as I type), so I'll close. Click the weird button up there to read all the other randoms.
