I Hope She Takes Me To The Awards Show

Katie tried out for a solo in the Spring Choral Concert about three weeks ago. We found out yesterday she was given one of the solos!! She has one of those full, rich voices that you don’t hear very often in the 6th grade and we love to listen to her sing. For the variety…

THAT'S SICK, YO!

Or wicked awesome! Or bad dope! No, I’m not talking about illness, evil or drugs. It’s rock talk for cool! Or hot! Or crazy insane! No, I’m talking about the weather or a mental state. I’m talking about Guitar Hero II – a video game in the same vein as DDR, but instead of dancing…

Winter? Summer? Spring?

Jen’s Law is the law that says if you are in a hurry at Target and you pick the shortest line, only after unloading the entire cart will you realize that either a) the cashier lives an alternate reality where efficiency is determined by the length of time it takes a person to perform the…

Napolean Dynamite Scenes

I posted this clip in reference to my “Erin Go Bragh” post. I wasn’t able to find a clip of “Your mom goes to college”, but here’s one of the “cage fighter” scene:

ERIN GO BRAGH!!

Taylor and I played at a new-to-us website – www.phonezoo.com – last night. We downloaded free ringtone after free ringtone to our phones, assigning different tones to different Caller I.D.’s. Then we’d make them call us and giggle. These are the ringtones I assigned: Katie – Brown Eyed Girl – no explanation necessary House –…

The End of a Week

Even though the standardized testing for the kids ended yesterday I still got up to make breakfast this morning. Sort of a last hurrah for the kids. Todd said I should write up a contract to the effect of I, T-Money, promise to move out of the house within two weeks of graduating high school…
