The Way

And they got to talking
They now had more important things to say."

This weekend was pretty normal.
Saturday was not Princess Fiona's favorite day.  She got a B-A-F-F.  (For those of you who haven't been reduced to spelling "bad" words in front of your children pets, that means bath.)  She was not thrilled.  Sadly, I wasn't able to capture the magic on film, but she does smell as fresh as daisies now.  I had to swaddle her like an 8lb, 6oz newborn infant Jesus who doesn't even know a word yet because (s)He's just a cuddly little infant but still omnipotent. [If you didn't catch that reference, you can't be my friend.]  After her B-A-F-F, we snuggled.
My feets are all tangled.
Oh, I may look innocent, but I'm not.
I picked up Zaxby's for lunch/supper and Princess Fiona was sad that she didn't get any, so I gave her the bag.  Let's be honest, that's what she really wanted anyway.  She made it her new home.
Please tell the paparazzi to get off my lawn.

I also got my sweet Lagy Gaga-esque wig for Halloween.  It's more yellow than I'd imagined, but whatevs.  You'll have to stay tuned to see it.  S.E.Dubs and I went and saw "The Social Network" on Saturday night.  We went to the "cheap theater" and tickets we $9!  That's what I call robbery.  Good thing we brought our own drinks and candy.  The movie was...interesting.  Mr. Facebook is kinda douche-y.

Sunday was filled with church and a baby shower.  The baby shower was precious and tons of fun.  There was a black and white photo booth with props for all of the guests to take pics.  Loved it.
I decided that Sunday night with the Youth Group would be Game Night.  We pigged out on pizza and brownies and play Catchphrase and Apples to Apples.  Def a fun night.  I felt really old when the youngest member of the group (6th grade boy) kept getting people cards in Apples to Apples and had no clue who they were.  Who were they?  Chevy Chase, Tom Clancy, Tommy Lee Jones, ABBA, and Pee-wee Herman. He was born in 1998.  Let's recap life in 1998...

  • Rehab and addiction were just a twinkle in Lindsay Lohan's eyes.  In 1998, she played twins in The Parent Trap.
  • Mel Gibson was still a Jew-loving sane person, starring in The Patriot.
  • The movie industry was a little obsessed with meteors, releasing Armageddon and Deep Impact in the same year.
  • Savage Garden's "Truly, Madly, Deeply" was my jam.
  • Anyone remember the band Fastball?  Because I def was loving their song, "The Way."
  • President Bill Clinton "did not" have relations with that woman, aka Monica Lewinsky.
  • The FDA approved Viagra.  Impotent men everywhere rejoiced.
  • Europe agreed to introduce the Euro as their mutual currency.
I felt old.

Daddy apparently caught a pretty nasty stomach bug and suffered all weekend.  I thought I was safe, but Mommy Dearest and I both had to stay home from work yesterday because of it.  We took turns bringing each other ginger ale and toast.  Not a fun day.

Long distance hugs so I don't give you my germs,
