Random Bits of Boring

I have a bunch of stuff to write about but nothing really worthy of a post of its own. Quite honestly, nothing worthy of posting at all but since this is the place you come for high-quality drivel I hate to disappoint.

*I saw the movie Mamma Mia on the weekend with my wonderful sister-law. The outing was great. The movie, OK. Now this review may be tainted by the fact that it was a chic flick, it had a large quantity of singing and the songs were from the 70's. Three strikes and you (poor Mama Mia) are out. I quite honestly would have rather seen The Dark Knight. However, the movie did take it's revenge for stating that it was just average. For the last 48 hours I have had the song "Dancing Queen" running through my head. On a continuous loop. Please someone, make it stop.

* I finally got to meet Tez last week!!!!! She is Uber-cool and now she is married!! She and her hubby tied the knot on Sunday. Go say Congrats. I'll wait. It is quite neat to meet people in real life that I meet on-line!

*Teri is also the source of one of my favorite comments ever, "When self-doubt comes knocking, invite it in for coffee and then stab it in the eye with the sugar spoon." That is brilliant. Off to find me a sugar spoon.

*Sprout has taken to calling his brother "insert his real name"ie. So, for example Sethie, or Paulie or Toddie. It is the cutest thing ever. He runs around the house hollering "Spudie, Spudie where are you?" Hero worship takes on a new meaning in that relationship. If Spud jumped off a bridge Sprout would be right there. RIGHT THERE. The good thing is, jumping off a bridge requires climbing onto said bridge and that is a lot of work and Spud would much rather watch a movie thankyouverymuch. So, there is no immediate danger of my children biting it together. Unless of course they repeat the whole bath-mat incident again and then I may be the one responsible for their untimely demise.

*Costco has Christmas cards in stock. Which one of us is going to tell them that it is JULY? I Seriously DO NOT want to think about a Holiday that involves ice and snow right now. The only ice I am thinking about is the stuff in my fruity drink.

*Other than that, really nothing special, I am driving North again on Monday, only this time doing all 6 hours in one day, but WAY COOLER IS COMING TOO!!!!! Can I possibly be more grateful? Probably not. We are probably taking the boys to the funeral with us. Why? Because we are nuts. Pray for us. Seriously. What kind of a looney contemplates taking a 2 and 4 year old to a funeral? Only the special kind of crazy that you find right here in the house of Geek. Actually our childcare choices are limited so we plan to take lots of books, snacks, quiet toys and Advil.

*Zzzzz oops sorry. Drifted off. This post is even boring me. So go enjoy summer already, as Costco has so kindly pointed out, Winter is NEARLY HERE.

hehehe you're up as early as I am!
Have a safe drive, I took my two and four year olds to my Grandma's funeral. We can swap stories when you get back.

Hmmm... I'd offer to help out with childcare but unfortunately I have to work. I'm sure that they will keep the eulogies short and sweet. My mom said that she used to let us kids squirm and make more noise if she was in a church service and the preaching went too long.

Just trying to be helpful!

I've never met another blogger either. I have two friends in Real Life who blog (one posts sporadically), but that is it. :)

Have a safe trip.

I always like your rambles.

I hope the trip goes well. I feel I should send you extra-strength something, but am not sure what...

Even with that amazing cast, Mama Mia wasn't good? I want to see the Batman movie, too.
