On Sunday, we cleaned the house. (Pauses for cheers and applause.) Yes, you heard me. We sort of had an agenda– company for Sunday night. Probably THE most boring 4th of July ever– but we liked it. My goal was to have friends over and watch brain candy movies. I know, I know– 4th of July? Barbecues? Swimming? Anyone?
Okay– our back porch is nice for kids to play as long as it’s NOT 102 degrees. Once it’s hotter than 95 degrees outside, inside is IT, and it WAS 102 degrees, so, you know, screw outside. We watched Die Hard 4, The Mummy, and Men in Black. (We wanted to watch Independence Day but we couldn’t find the copy. Oh well, c’est la vie!) Anyway, my friend and her SO were right on my page. We ate ice cream, went outside to hand Chicken an existential dilemma (reduce carbon footprint, or blow shit up? She opted to blow shit up. I think that was a good choice.) And then fell asleep, really tired and VERY happy.
Today I snuck by the yarn store after water aerobics (although it’s hard to hide your trail for a foraging excursion when you drop a chunk of change using your bank card) and then we went to visit Mate’s grandma and (huzzah!) see a movie. We saw Last Airbender. There were some glitches, but overall, I thought it was true to the cartoon, and since I loved the cartoon, I was pleased. (As a critic for someone else’s work, I can be an absurdly simple soul. As a critic for my own work? I’m an insane bitch with a poison pen and an axe to grind.) But during the movie, Zoomboy couldn’t stop fondling me. “I love you mom.” “I love you too, watch the movie.” “I love you mom.” “I love you too, keep your hands to yourself.” “I love you mom.” “I love you too WOULD YOU STOP TOUCHING ME!” *sigh* Yeah. How to sound like psycho mom in five little words…
Anyway, besides that, I almost skipped blogging today, because really? Once again, our family is making like the most boring humans EVER! Oh… wait. There was this and it totally kicked ass. I mean, you know. TOTALLY. So, maybe you should listen to someone else’s take on The Last Airbender– I spent my day surrounded by rose critical glow.
