My brothers would have caught it


Last night I was the "greeter" at a ladies' Bible study. That just means I opened the door, gave them a big smile and said hey.

There was also a highschool basketball game going on in the gym of the same building. So, after smiling for two ladies, I found myself ( ..... in Paris." "Were you lost?" Name the movie!) holding the door for two guys dressed for their game.
I grinned. "Well hello! Are y'all here for the ladies' Bible study?!"
They shuffled their feet and one of them goes, "Um... no. We're here for a basketball game."
Oh really, number 16? I would have never guessed.

Runaway tongue

Me: Have you seen Runaway Jury?

Jim: Umm.... I think so.... doesn't it have Sandra Bullock?
Me: No. You're thinking about Runaway Bus.
Me: That didn't sound right, Amy. Think fast! Think fast!
Jim: Do you mean Speed?

Umm. Yes. That IS what I meant. And as my husband laughed uproariously, I realized there really wasn't any use in trying to say something like, "I was trying to say 'No, you're thinking about the one ABOUT the runaway bus.'"

Well, I'm leaving it in italics because in my mind, it was a movie. Because I'm a doofus.

And yes, I know my blog layout is boring. I'm working on it and trying to make it look more grown-up. Because only grown-ups are allowed to watch Runaway Bus.

I don't think he was listening


Today I called my Dad to wish him a happy birthday:

Me: Hey Dad! Happy Birthday!
Dad: Hey! Happy Birthday to you!

Probably the best "you too!" phrase I've heard ever.

I love you, Dad. Happy Birthday to just you.

Could switching to Geico?

Other insurance companies should be fighting over the brain behind Geico's commercials.

Because they are hilarious. If you haven't already seen these, here they are in no particular order. If you have seen them.... well.... just watch them again.

Generation facebook

I just googled a phrase that started with "how do you..." and in proper Google style, I immediately had 10 choices of things to learn how to do.


Four of them had to do with facebook.
