That I never knew what the GI in GI Joe stood for. I suppose it's even more okay that I found out over the weekend and it was my 13 year old son who told me "Mom, GI is short for government issued". Oh really? How is it that I'd never heard that before? I mean I've played with GI Joe's for pete's sake!
That I dislike Mitt Romney even more than I thought possible. You LIKE being able to fire people who provide services for you? Dick. Seriously, do you know nothing about the country you are trying to lead? I understand that you feel that way but if you really want to be the slimy politician you are aspiring to be, don't you know not to mention that shit? Idiot. I have never had an affinity for this man, however hearing that line (in or out of context) while we are meeting to discuss who is getting laid off next week, doesn't not make me enamored of him. Plus, he's a dick.
That I don't allow Evan to say the word "dick". Can you say double standard? :) Not really. As I told him, he can say it when he's all grown up. The list of what he'll do when he's all grown up includes saying all sorts of swear words, having both a dog and a duck as his pets, and owning his own canoe. Chick magnet!
That I finally met the elusive Lexi. She's the only friend of Evan's who I hadn't met, and they've been buddies for years. For some reason it was important to Evan that I not meet her (and perhaps embarrass him. kids! hmfph) The doorbell rang and a cute little blonde girl in a pink hoodie and pink high tops was there, chewing her pink gum. "Is Evan here?"
"He's getting dressed. Are you Lexi by any chance?" *big grin*
"Would you like to come in and wait?" *big grin* "I've heard a lot about you."
"Nah, can't." *pointing to pink high top sneakers* "They're dirty."
"You could take them off." *small grin*
"Evan was just playing xbox, you can come in and play with him." *tiny grin*
Fine. I get Evan who goes on the front porch for a top secret chat and comes back in. He says she wanted him to go to the school yard with her but he said no and sent her on her way. I ask why he didn't go with her or invite her in to play xbox and laughs and says he didn't want to. Fine. *no grin*
That it's time to win another big poker tournament. It's past time baby. Someone told me they'd "crush me obv". omfg I wonder how much money I could extract from him in a last longer bet. :) Lock up your money if you're on the East Coast this weekend!
That Evan is determined to buy his own lake canoe. wtf a lake canoe is vs a regular canoe I do not know. Unfortunately, when he gets something in his head he doesn't let go. This thing costs hundreds of dollars so it's going to be a while and no I am not donating....directly anyway. I will pay for slave work to be done around the house though, which he'll do for the canoe fund. Make hay when the sun shines, I always say. Thus far he's emptied the dishwasher and fed the cat all week. Now you may think feeding the cat is no big deal, but it is to me. The smell of cat food turns my stomache and makes me want to puke. Not my fave activity first thing.
That I've never ever seen neither the Star Wars movies nor the Star Trek TV show. Never, yet I'm telling you this is okay. I'd normally keep this a deep dark secret because I know I'd get weird looks from all you sci fi guys. However, yesterday I read that Whispering Writer had never seen the Rocky movies. Can you imagine? No, "Yo, Adrian" in Amber's life. *gasp* So if she can avoid Rocky for a couple of decades I can continue to avoid that sci fi crapola.
That this post is quite late. Actually, it bothers me that I'm posting later than usual, but it is what it is. I haven't been sleeping well because my neck absolutely kills me when I go to sleep (and when I wake up) so this has thrown my cycle off a bit. As I write this I'm thinking about taking some (more) advil and stretching.
That I kicked my sister out of my house TWICE in the last 72 hours. For real yo.
Let's end there.
