Oh the thinks I can think

  • I can't remember doing any assigned reading in jr. high or high school. I think we were suppose to read "The Scarlet Letter" but then we were watching the movie in class, so I didn't see the point. Plus, they talk funny in that book. I've never read "Tom Sawyer" or "To Kill a Mockingbird" or any of the other classics. I am uncultured. Oh- I did read the 1st 2 books in "The Little House on the Prairie" series until my sister bumped me while walking home and the book I was reading fell in the gutter/drain thing. I stopped reading it after that. Which book did that boy get stung by bees in?
  • I can't believe how mean and hateful people can get about the "Twilight" series. Gimme a break. I mean, I love Jacob, I loved the series, but I'm not gonna get my panties in a wad if someone talks bad about Jacob. Good- less competition for me. Not to mention I have a REAL life to worry about.
  • On the same note... Why do people treat blogging like high school? It's not a popularity contest. I don't get the whole "Follow me" thing in the sidebar. I didn't put it in mine because I thought it was like "Vote for Summer!" If you wanna follow me, good. Do. I use Newsgator, so I don't follow any blogs with the "Follow Me" thing, so don't be offended...
  • Tristan had a basketball game last nite. It was GOOD game. They came from behind and with 9 seconds left it was tied. We got fouled and had a 1-and-1 shot. (That means they get to shoot one free throw. If they make it they get a 2nd. If they miss it then it's up for a rebound and the game keeps going.) Anyway... he made BOTH shots. Yesssss. We were up by 2. The other team chucks the ball down the court and this kid that had made 3 or 4 three pointers in the game takes a shot, the crowd holds it's breath.... MISS! We won by 2!!! I was so loud and obnoxious. My mom said my dad would have been proud. I may or may not have yelled things such as, "Ref- he's campin' in the lane!! He just pitched a tent...." "1, 2, 3... Ref come on. I'm at 10 seconds!!" "Come on Ref. They're gonna touch occasionally!!" "That was a lame call Ref. Lame." (It was really quiet when I yelled that... if I yelled that.) I had fun. ;)
  • I don't know what to get Sei for Christmas. I make it easy for him- I tell him exactly what I want. 1/2 the time he doesn't take the hint and gets me stuff NOT on my list. Idk why. He's not as helpful. I think this year he told me he wants another set of handcuffs. Our set broke.... Kidding. Just checking if you're paying attention. He really did say he wants a 2nd set of cuffs though. That's an exciting present... not. That's like giving socks and underwear. Isn't that stuff you're suppose to buy your kids anyway? If you didn't buy your kids undies at Christmas would they be goin' commando all the time? I think not. How did I get on this subject?? Did I just offend a lot of people that give their kids undies for Christmas? My bad. That just made me think of this "Friends" episode:

I had to chuckle about the whole popularity contest--I just got an e-mail from a high school site I belong to. It offers to help me "be the popular person at (my high school)". I'm 57 years old--being popular to people I went to high school is not on my list of priorities--frankly, I could care less.

Whenever I go to games with Allan he tries to shush me up--I'M WAAAYYYYYYY too vocal. Way to go Tristan on making the two shots.

I always get my kids underwear for Christmas--I guess it's just a habit. (I'm not offended, or ashamed, or embarrassed--I just do it ; )

Have a great weekend, tori.

I'm pretty sure that it's Farmer boy where the boy gets stung with all the bees.

My sister as a child never tore open her presents. She'd carefully open the package without tearing the paper. We told her to go wild and tear one up. It happened to be underwear and flew all over. Yeah...good times! :D

I never read most of those books in school either. I guess I need to be more cultured! ;)

tara said...

I have always known "pitching a tent" to mean something completely different than hanging out in the key for more than 3 seconds... something to do with under-roos. (: So yeah, that was a funny mental picture... then you talked about underwear. good read, tori! good read (: Merry Christmas!

Tori :) said...

LOL Tara! I thought that same thing when I typed it out. Maybe next time I'll yell "He's making S'mores!" ;)

Lauren said...

People are so lame. I hate when people get on my case about blogging stuff. Blogging is supposed to be fun! Ugh. I will e-mail you.

Lauren said...

Oh and what happened with Jacob?

Stacey said...

I am so highly offended...and not cultured either.

"I'm not gonna go commando in another man's fatigues!"

Karina said...

I like reading the classics but Scarlet Letter??!!!! I could not get past the first chapter.
High School!!?? I barely remember high school.
Woohoo for Tristan!!! That would've been fun to watch.

Klin said...

You are so funny.

And I did put the follow thing on, but I don't check it, which brings me to why did I put it on there?

Who is getting mean and hateful about Twilight? Where ever it is tell me so I don't go there. I just don't care what they think. It's a book of NOT real characters for pete's sake.

Oh, and I'll be unwrapping the underwear that I'm giving my kids for Christmas. Thanks for making me feel all guilty about that. ;)

omar said...

True story, my boy is getting underwear in his stocking this year. Don't judge me.

Nothing worse than a ref who doesn't watch how long the big men camp out in the lane.

No Cool Story said...

Omar doesn't knwo who Summer is.

I didn't care for Tom Sawyer but To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite, I bet you'd like it and it's a fast read.

Gott love that Joey.

S said...

What about "Catcher in the Rye" awful book. I never made it through. too much cussing. Anyhow I think you should get Sei a trip to KC for yourself:) Doesn't that sound like fun. What makes you happy will make him happy right?

Mikelene said...

LOL at the "Friends" clip b/c the line 'Hi, I'm Chandler. Could I be wearing any more clothes?' runs through my head whenever I tell my girls to dress in layers. I forgot how funny that clip was to watch.

TKAM is one of my favorite books.

Enjoyed the play-by-play of the b-ball game. My husband LOVES sports. He can't wait till our son is old enough to play anything--football, baseball, soccer, whatever. And Scott (my hubby) is a loud fan. :)

Buy yourself a gift. Wrap it & then act surprised when you open it on Christmas.

Merkley Jiating said...

What you were yelling at the ref made me laugh. That is so awesome. I told my husband about him pitching a tent in the lane and he liked it. Good job. :-)

Kimberly said...

geez, I was thinking the story of the boy that gets stung by the bees was a movie with Makauley Culkin... My Girl or something... didn't even know there was a story about it - I must have missed that book. Buy Sei a giftcard to somewhere you like to go as well and make it a date night! ;)... pitching a tent... lol, totally cracked up when I read that...

Knot said...

That is one of my absolute most favorite Friends episodes. It's the "commando" episode.

If you ever get a chance to hear the commentary on that episode on the DVD do so because it's shot in like one really long take in one room so it's more like a one act play.

I never know what to get Dame for Christmas... He buys everything he WANTS... which means for Christmas he get things he NEEDS - like underwear. :)

I guess I missed all the popularity things going around - I just read another blog talking about popularity. I'm glad my blog is private (for that reason). :) I don't care to be on the sidebar of anyone and it doesn't help because I am private. I don't list blogs I read either and I will NOT advertise for anyone on my blog either. That is not what it's about!

Anyway...

When I was growing up reading the "classics" were always mandatory in my classes...

NOBODY said...

I NEED to go to one of your kids' basketball games with you. NEED to.

We quote that Friends scene A LOT. It's hilarious.

Nancy Face said...

Even though I love Edward, I don't hate Jacob! I have fun teasing you about him, though...since they're real and all. ;)

Nancy Face said...

The high school mentality is bugging the crap out of me!

You're so right...blogging is NOT about popularity contests! It's just fun, and I love keeping in touch with teh AWESOME women like you! :)

Nancy Face said...

I would have had fun listening to you at that game...you go girl! And it cracks me up that your man wants more handcuffs! ;)
