Hey there, the few people who will actually read this! I feel like getting on the bandwagon, so here is my first blogspot...I've never been good at keeping a journal, but I am hoping I can update this semi-frequently. I know several friends who do, and it's a good way to keep in touch without continuing to ask "did you know this happened? I know I told someone..." Now I can say, you are SO behind the times! Just read my blog and it will tell you everything!
So...THAT was ultimate cheeze. Can you tell I'm a little unsure of what to write? :o)
Today, I saw "Madagascar" with three of my nephews. Their dad gave me money to take them to the movies while he took care of something...He gave me $40 and I spent $60! As they will tell you: "We had ICEEs, and popcorn, and M&Ms, and Sour Patch Kids, and bubble gum...then we had chocolate ice cream with chocolate toppings...and THEN we had pizza!" It's not cheap to indulge kids, especially 12-year-old with endless stomachs!
Aside: Madagascar was funny...not really big-screen, pay-a-lot-of-money-at-the-theater funny in my opinion, but good. I love David Schwimmer, and he did a great job as the hypochondriac giraffe. And the lemur king and his sidekick (Cedric the Entertainer) are great, as are the psychotic penguins.
I love my nephews (and niece!) - they are so much fun, even when they are pumped up on sugar and acting goofy. One of my favorite things to do with them is to just lay down on the floor, couch or bed and let them pile on top of me. We pass the time by seeing who can make everyone under them groan in pain the loudest. Or how long we can go without resorting to tickling, licking, biting or pinching to get the others off the pile. Yes, I AM mature.
Today, my mom got mad at us for being too rowdy. I don't know what the problem was - all we were doing was piling on the couch, near a glass coffee table with one of our dogs trying to join us! My newest favorite word: buzzkill...and that's what Mom was this evening. (You would have to remember the series from MTV to really understand where I got this.)
I also have a LoveSac that amuses us by the hour. For those of you not familiar with this, the LoveSac is a souped-up beanbag full of super-shredded foam pieces that makes for a good chair, bed...or landing spot for flying leaps. To reassure you, one of the boxes my LoveSac came in said "LoveSac.com is NOT a dirty website." It's really cool and I don't regret purchasing such a strange object to sit in - the dogs love it, the kids love it, I love it... You can visit my photo site to see some of the fun - just click on "Craig's fun on the LoveSac" for pictures of the flips they do from the bed to the sac.
