Yesterday, my sister went to Forks with her boyfriend. It's a four hour drive and her plan was to spend last night at his place and come home this morning. So, I thought to myself, "Self? Why should Kyle and Jack and I just sit at home and be braindead all day? We, too, should have a shiny adventure!"

SO! We, too, drove off... just in a different direction. :D

And we ended up in Leavenworth!


... and then I'll tell you all how last night I met Christian Kane and Steve Carlson. :)

Today, as most of you know, would have been my mother's 62nd birthday. We celebrated by driving out to Ocean Shores. This was quite the adventure. It shouldn't have been. LOL

First, I sent Kyle to school, then had to go get him. Then, Cher forgot to drop off rent, so we had to go back and do that. Then we had to go to my bank, then we got lost in Olympia. Then we took three different exits looking for a grocery store and not one of them HAD one. The next exit - one I didn't take? A TOP food and drug, right there.

So, I see a sign with a SAFEWAY logo? I take the exit and end up in the middle of nowhere. Yeah, Cher was swearing it like 'The Hills Have Eyes' and that we'd see a shack with "SAFWAEY" painted on it and that we were all going to die. So, we finally see this Safeway, I cut across traffic to get into the parking lot and end up grounding my poor car on the divider. *SIGH*

Finally, we get to Ocean Shores. :D

Needless to say, the drive home was much, MUCH shorter. :) And everyone slept but me.

MY SON: *peers at screen* ... *gives me a LOOK* No, Mom.
ME: What? You don't know what I was gonna say.
MY SON: Yes, I do. And Batman's suit holds back EVERYTHING. *as I start laughing* Even his parts.
So, we're in the car and Kyle's reading his manga and says, "Oh, that's censored." I said, "What are you reading now? More panty eating hampsters? Boy on boy love?*"

And he's laughing and says no. THEN he says, "Bisexual means they like boys and girls, lesbians are girls who like girls, gays are boys who like boys and homosexuals like homos."

I nearly drove off the road.


SO I ASK HIM, on Aki's urging, WHAT A HOMO IS and HE SAYS:

"Like those people who ride on trains with sticks and sacks on the end!"

Me: *can't breathe*



*books he's read before, apparently

So, yesterday Kyle and I went and saw Hancock, went to dinner with Rach (where Rachael gave him his Pokemon board game -like Yahtzee) and picked out his video game present at the mall. Today we go see Cher. :D All in all, I think he'd say it was a pretty good birthday.

Today, though, is TARA'S birthday, so happy birthday! :D *MWAH*
I wish, I really do, that I had taken notes on yesterday. Rachael had invited Kyle and me to this luau for the first birthday of the daughter of one of her best college friends.


A luau it was. There was SO. MUCH. FOOD. And SO. MUCH. FUN. And the hula dancers were great (and full of innuendo) and we got to have our faces painted and it was a lot of fun. Like SO MUCH FUN. :) Had a great time. SO MUCH FUN, in fact, that we called up Lani and she came down and had it, too.

After that, well. There was karaoke to be had. So, we went up to Skyway Park Bowl (omg such an old old haunt) and sho'nuff, they were just starting karaoke (in a room with a disco ball and flashing lights). For the first hour or so, we were alone and man, SO MUCH FUN. Of course, singing after Lani? NOT SO MUCH FUN. Because, well, she's got the serious chops to be a singer, so... yeah. Anyway, then it started to fill up and the wait got WAY long and then it wasn't as much fun.

Racahel saw a cop who looked like David Tennant, I saw a guy that I'd known since I was 15 and had WORKED at said bowling alley (which I've done three times, actually), and Lani.... well.... SHAKIRA not only kept getting hit on, but some guy claiming to be a teacher at Seattle Prep thought she might have been one of his students (which even HE said would have been bad) and then proceeded to tell her he was going to marry her.


Also: Kyle, for his face-painting, got the mark of the devil. He swears it's from some ZELDA thing and that they're swirls, but um... they looked like fancy 6's on his face.

Also Also: You should have SEEN Rach and Lani do this duet from Rent. It. was. INCREDIBLE. Seriously, they did it right as people started to get there and the looks they got? It was AWESOME. SO MUCH FUN! .. Rach and I did 'Sweet Transvestite' and Lani and I did 'Hotel California' (which some guys did a striptease to) and 'Wanted Dead or Alive' because yeah, Bon Jovi IS cool... on occasion.


EDIT: My hair is ROCKIN' this morning.

[Today's puzzle completed 1 Min, 22 Secs]



So, I have a meeting with the school this afternoon. I knew Rach was gonna hafta work and I figured that Cher was gonna be working, so... yeah. Wish me luck. I just really don't want to do that 'get frustrated and to avoid saying/doing something I shouldn't I start crying' thing. Cher does it, too. OH, those people make me SO ANGRY. Grr.


BUT! The most beautiful pink and white Gerber Daisies were delivered to my house this morning. Just gorgeous. <3 Thank you, Meredith. I'll take them with me tomorrow. *LOVES* You're awesome.


THIS icon is still making me giggle. All because Kara started Cult of Mo on LJ and now it's here, too. *hee* Join and KEEP YOUR BALLS. No Kool-Aid. ;)


What happens when RP meets... well, LANI's commentary and Meredith's graphic skillz. *snickers*


TONIGHT: BSG - OMG YAY! Kara's whacked. Gaisu-san = Still the only one getting laid. Someone DO something, thanks. :) Dad? Mom? ... ugh, LEE? Geez.

LAST NIGHT: SUPERNATURAL - Too bad that Lani's spent the last few eps out of my timezone. No more going, "Oh, crap! Gotta get on the horn with her."



So, everyone at UtR was joining this New Game of Awesome and was like, "JOIN THIS!" So, I app'd, right? Accepted, made my OOC intro post. *hee* And who should comment but OMFG- BRIX. Oh, my gooduhness, BRIX! I did not know you were an RP'er here. Last time I RP'd with Brix was at Celebsomethingorother on LJ. And THAT was whacked. Only time in my life I enjoyed messing with Kate Bosworth. *hee* ANYWAY. THIS is gonna be fun. <3

So, see why I needed tons of icons? Too many topics to cover them all.

Plus: Jo, glad Strider's doing better. Cher? No more dizzy-driving. Rach, the IRS can suck cock.


Kyle's running in the hall on his way back from lunch yesterday. Gets caught. Has to be on Step 1. Which means he has to sit in a classroom (not the one he was going to) for 5-10 minutes. When that's over? He's sent to class WITHOUT a pass so he gets in trouble for being tardy.

Now, I must be seeing this wrong because:

Running = Consequence
Consequence = ... more trouble?

If my son is in trouble and pays the price for it, he should then be DONE with consequences and sent to class free and clear to start with a fresh slate. Not have to pay the price AGAIN. Of COURSE he's going to think that's not fair. I think that that's not fair.

Jumping Christ on a Cracker.

The Boy: *randomly and from nowhere* Mom? Where do you put your teeth when you're having your first kiss?
Me: *blinks and tries to focus because was not even close to expecting anything like that* Um, what?
The Boy: *patiently, quite like his mom has some kind of mental deficiency* Your teeth. Where do they go in a first kiss?
Me: In your mouth? *clicks teeth*
The Boy: Oh. *thoughtful* Hmmm.
Me: *waits a beat and when no explanation is forthcoming...* Why? Are you expecting your first kiss? *---* Have you HAD your first kiss?
The Boy: Mom.
Me: What?!
The Boy: *a LOOK*
Me: ...
Yesterday, like I said, Rachael and Kyle and I went to [Woodland Park Zoo]. We got there about 12:45pm only to find that the zoo itself closes at... 4pm. Eh, winter hours. LOL

That's okay. Because, although the weather guys said that it was going to be 55? I think they lied. And it was BEAUTIFUL!SUNNY, so we put the top down on the way up there (about an hour's drive) and froze poor Kyle out of the backseat. On the way, we stopped at [Dick's], a Seattle staple for 'a day out on the town'. Or, for that matter, a NIGHT out on the town. Shiiiiiiit, prom people go there. EVERYONE goes to Dick's. Hell, 'My Posse's on Broadway'? Lyrics mention Dick's. :D So, after hitting the Dick's on Broadway, we finally made it to the Zoo.


At the end, back at my house, Rach says, "Thank you for driving me to the zoo." I say, ":P".

All in all, a VERY fun day and I slept REALLY well. It's now 11am and Kyle is STILL trying to be asleep. Eeeesh. Boy, get UP. We gots us some PLANS. *pokes*
