I had a dream I was an illegal immigrant in Turkmenistan (it is over there near Afghanistan). Oh that isn't the weird part...I worked in a restaurant where the specialty thing was really good British bacon and Britney Spears came in to eat at the restaurant.
Speaking of Britney I was sitting in traffic (absolute stand still traffic) on the was home from dropping my parents off in Epping (the closest I drive to London) at the Tube station and I was listening to Radio 1; then I heard the funniest/most absurd thing I have heard in a long long time. Apparently BBC 3, was running a show on Sunday called "Britney Spears Saved My Life" Did you just cock your head to the side like a confused dog like I did? Yes you read that right. Oh and that is not the best part. Then they played an interview from the show on air. I must have looked like a complete nutter in my car because I was laughing so hard I had TEARS running down my face. You can watch the interview on YouTube here. Yes, I actually took the time to hunt it down. The things I do for you people... Go watch, I'll wait. Now tell me those people aren't completely insane.
LaLa and my husband were playing Wii bowling the other day, first of all lets say LaLa has a very unique but effective style for bowling. It is like a whirling dervish that has been let loose on my living room with deadly accurate Wii bowling skillz. She bowled a 179 and beat my husband by like 30 pins.
Do you know how hard it is to find brown leggings and a brown shirt in the middle of summer with a weeks notice? LaLa is supposed to be a monkey in her class play and had to have brown clothes. I ended up dying a white shirt and a pair of light pink leggings brown. Score one for resourceful mom.
KiKi has all of a sudden become extremely affectionate. The other day I found her pinning LaLa down planting kisses all over her. LaLa was laughing and trying to resist. "You will take my kisses and you will like it damnit!" She has also forced her affections on the dog. Poor Beastie.
My parents and I got to hear choir practice at Ely Cathedral while we were on the tour of the Octagon. Angels.
This is the Octagon. The first picture was taken while looking down from this. If you ever come to England, or are in Cambridgeshire, go to Ely Cathedral. This is a command.
So there is this show on Playhouse Disney called Handy Mandy. It is about a guy named Manny (short for Manuel)(don't get me started on the implications of a Hispanic handyman) who has magical talking tools who goes around fixing the various problems of his hometown of Sheetrock Hills. One thing has always perplexed me...they never show the "customers" paying Handy Manny. Nor do they show the customers when they realize that the over inflated repair prices are going to totally screw up their budget for the entire month and they are going to be living off of beans, rice and Easy Mac for the next two weeks.
Let's also take a moment to remember the London Tube bombings that happened 4 years ago today. There were 52 fatalities in that act of terrorism. Let's pray it never happens again.
I feel better now.
