Checking In *Now With Inappropriate Video*

Here are a few highlights from the past three days:

1. Apparently, chigger bits are of the SCARRING variety, as I am not fully convinced that my foot has indeed contracted the plague and is on its death bed.

2. Added to the "scary fucking animals seen in my yard": SNAKE. I'm pretty certain that all this is a sign from God that I am a very bad person. I think blogging about it is the modern form of penance, though, right?

3. We had a friend over for the weekend, and he's converting to hippie. Does anyone know how to get the scent of patchouli out of say, my BATHROOM?

4. I watched the Twilight movie. Again. And maybe am obsessed with finding a clip of the Twilight KIDS winning their TEEN CHOICE AWARDS. (HELP ME--and by that, I mean, with my addiction. Or with finding the clip.)

5. I've been listening to that Kings of Leon CD that's pretty much running for President of the World at the moment. In fact, I've been listening so much that my 2.5 year old now sings along to Use Somebody. And during the OHHH-WAAHHHH-OHHHH part, he sings "AHH-BAAAA-JO! AHH-BAAAA-JO!" I'm pretty sure it's the cutest thing ever (at least way cuter than anything YOUR kid has ever done), but also evidence that could be used against me in an INAPPROPRIATE PARENTING trial:

PS: I'm realizing this looks like I video-ed WHILE DRIVING. Not the case...G-Ma was acting as impromptu cameraman. You know how the semi-elderly are with modern technology. Luckily this wasn't ILLEGAL.

  1. Miss K,
    I can't help with the clip because I'm responding via iPhone and I don't have the patience to search on this thing. However, since you are officially stalking the Twilight kids, you should visit www.hisgoldeneyes.com. My little sister would be so proud of me for sending you this link. I'll bet they have some of the TCA clips. I give her shit for being way too excited about this series...I'm adding you to that list. :)

  2. Kings of Leon seems to be running nonstop in our house right now too. And your kid can be the cutest at singing because I don't have kids. Score for you!

    P.S. I think you should just put a HUGE tent over your yard until all of the creatures die.

  3. Chiggers, snakes... how about throwing in a possum or a rat? That would complete the menagerie nicely. You could do a scientific study of bite marks.

  5. You can convert to hippie? I thought you either were or you weren't one. Eh. Learn something new every day.

    Next you're going to be wearing a "Team Edward" shirt and filming yourself watching the movie to monitor your reactions. I hear people do that kinda stuff.

  6. That is a good point- how do you convert to hippie? I think it might be fun to hippie out for a while. I have no idea what patchouli is, though, so I'll just assume that it's a special hippie kind of voodoo powder cause I'm too lazy to look it up and that's funnier to me anyhow.

  7. Try Murphy's Oil soap. That might dissolve the oils and help clean things up and get rid of the Hippy stink.

    Also, yeah, chigger bites scar. My wife's legs are still marred nine years after a little impromptu fun behind the school by her parents' old house.

    Yes, mom and dad Hanley...we were out for a walk...

  8. I was totally on Team Jacob until I saw the kid from the movie. Nothing like I thought. At all.

    I'm also a big Weasley fan. Boy, I'm getting creepier by the minute.

    Did I also mention I like Sean Connery? That should even it out.

  10. I liked how he wiped his nose with Percy.

  11. If that snake offers you an apple, eat it. Then, you'll know the answers to everything.

    Or you'll get explosive d.
