First of all, I had a night (Friday) with the Girls. It was fun and Sal and I got into an argument about the Jello twins. Have you heard of them? Orangejello and Lemonjello?
Sal read about them in the book Freakonomics. I told her it was an Urban Myth (or legend....whatever) because Zuddy and I got tricked with that one once. And she said it was true because she read it in a book. Which made me laugh harder. Because, you know, everything you read in a book is totally factual. And then it made Sal more irritated. Sorry Sally Gally. I didn't mean to contradict.
That's when I decided It was in order to post those 7 things to poke a little fun at myself. So I hope Sal reads it. And, of course, when the girls get together, we always talk about religion. Which made me think of my irrational fear of Churches, because that night I vowed to Amy that Noodle and I are going this Sunday (as in the one coming up. Which, if you know me, you'll know this is my little way of putting it off.)
Have you ever seen that commercial where this guy is delegating portions of a project to his office team? And he tells one guy that he's in charge of talking a big game and then not following through? To which the guy replies, "Let's do it!" Yeah. That's me, internets.
Anyway, then we had a wedding on Saturday. My cousin Katie's. Which we skipped. It was one of those wedding a 2pm and the reception is at 5pm thingies. We just went to the reception. And who should be there, but little Franklin!
Here he is with his Daddy, Richard. Richard is soooooo funny that I think I wet my pants thrice while he was being his funny self. Not only that, but my throat hurt from screaming with laughter.
And here is the beautiful and waaaayyyy too intelligent Claire, Franklin's Mommy and my cousin. Claire uses a lot of words I nod at while we're in a conversation and then when I'm alone?
I look them up in the dictionary.
Claire also caught me trying to feed Franklin some wedding cake. She looked at me with an evil eye and said, "Are you feeding him refined sugar?"
No. Because Franklin could tell by the looks of that wedding cake that it had high fructose corn syrup in it. And he wasn't having any of that. He told me he likes a niiice French buttercream. Yeppers.
Then Sunday? I ripped off a little wallpaper and we had to go to a birthday party at Zuddy's sister's house.
Which I tried to get out of. But Zuddy wouldn't let me.
So I planted myself near my Brother in law Dan and his brother Jim and Jim's wife Angie. Because I heart them. You know what Jim did on Saturday? He went to Iowa (I think) and ran a 7 mile race in the woods!!!! Up big slippery hills and through cold wet little creeks.....Kind of reminds me of Penny!
You know what? I want to do that!! I told Zuddy we should do that together. And he didn't say no! He tried one of his old suits on before the wedding reception on Saturday and he looked like Baby Huey in it. And I look like baby Huey in everything. Here's a picture of us at the wedding.
So you never know. Maybe next year we'll run that race. Let's do it! Ha ha. That's me talkin' my big game!!
So that's it!!! That was our weekend! It was fun. I hope you all had a great weekend!!!
