-->With no intro, I would like to just throw out my first random thought: Is it cheating if you wrote and posted your RTT on Monday? Or am I just a naive a$$ to wait to write it until Tuesday? You decide. All I know is that it's only 10:45 and there are already almost 50 posts up. I refuse to believe that so many people were that non-productive this early in the day.
-->They are teaching LG to sing that old favorite "If you're happy and you know it". However, they are singing the wrong words. I know, you are all saying, "Now, MB, just because they aren't the words you sing doesn't make them wrong." I disagree. They sing, "If you're happy and you know it then your face will surely show it..." I know it as, "If you're happy and you know it then you really ought to show it..." Their way makes no sense!!! If your face shows it why do you need to clap your hands? My way makes far more sense.
--> Remember the Seinfeld where George's Dad takes that stress management course and they teach him to say "Serenity now"? How at the end, as the car drives into the garage at him he screams, "Hoochie Mama"? I've taken to using that instead of swearing. So, when LG flushed the toilet the other day while I was in the shower? He then toddled out to see PB screaming, "Hoochie Mama!" I hear it was hysterical.
-->Thank you for all of your kind wishes regarding o's baptism. There was no lightening, and the world didn't end opening up a gaping chasm to hell, so I think we're all good. PB would like to point out that o was wearing a baptism toga, since no son of his would be caught dead wearing a dress. Whatever.
-->A local radio station posed a question two weeks ago that they are still discussing. Warning: it's about to get graphic (sort of):
When using toilet paper, do you sit or stand? Apparently, 2/3 of people remain seated, while 1/3 stands. And nobody realized that there is any other way to do it than their way.
You'd be amazed at the amount of conversation this has generated. Couples calling in saying after 20 years of marriage, they are finding out things they never knew about their spouse.
-->Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the day that all 50 states recognized and celebrated Martin Luther King Jr day. Even though Ronald Reagan declared it a federal holiday in 1983, and some states started celebrating by 1986, some refused to until 17 years later. South Carolina was the last state to recognize the holiday.
--> This thing makes me laugh. It seems like a good idea, right? But the guy in the video never tries to push it off the table onto the floor. Which leads me to believe that it doesn't always stay upright. And let's face it, my toddler wouldn't just pick it up to turn it all around. He'd pick it up to throw it.
--> I don't think of Florida as the south. I'm not sure why. Clearly, it is in the southern part of the country. But they don't have a southern accent, and they don't do "southern" things (don't ask what those might be). I think of Florida as more hispanic than southern. Eh, if Ohio is the mid-west, I don't think anyone else is in a place to criticize.
--> Do your kids have theme music? When LG walks around, I hear the music to the A-Team. On Saturday, I had put o into his crib while I went into the other room for something. Through the baby monitor I heard LG giggle, and then a thump. When I went to check, there was LG, holding o's hand in the crib. "Visiting o." , he told me proudly. He had pulled all the blankets off of o's rocking chair, climbed into the rocker, stood on the arm to grab the rail of the crib and catapulted himself in. Little o was giggling, so I guess it was a sight to see.
