little fisherman

While I was gone this weekend, even though it wasn’t but for 28 hours, it seems my boys had a lot of fun together, and I missed out. First, they were completely unable to cook for themselves and I came home to the dishes all where I left them – all clean, except for a handful still in the sink – and some clues as to what they did eat… McDonald’s, Huddle House, Chinese… Craziness.

They also went fishing Saturday. It surprises me when Steve does something like that with Elijah because, as we all know, Elijah can be quite a handful and the thought of that kid with hooks and fishing knives (and whatever else is used to go fishing with) should strike terror into the heart of any adult. But not only did they go but Elijah was the only of the two of them to catch anything. He caught a good sized blue gill, Steve say about four to six inches in length.

Sh-Boom

My current ring tone is Sh-Boom by the Chords, you might know it from the movie Cars:

I love that song. :)
Elijah, however, really loves that song!

Every time my phone rings, he starts dancing in the same way and it cracks me up every time. He’s also been known to get a little upset when I answer the phone.

So this morning just to fool with him, I played the whole song from the computer and caught his dancing on video. Please ignore his outfit, he was still in his PJs and those pants are, yes, a bit too short for his long legs.

The really funny thing though was that when I was playing the video on the computer after taking it from the camera, he started dancing again. At times he was in sync with himself on the computer screen, it was almost like having twins. Almost freaky. :)

A Streetcar Named Desire

A Streetcar Named Desire Last Thursday I went to see the production of A Streetcar Named Desire that our friend was in. He played Stanley and this was the first time I got to see him in something, I didn’t make it to his last play which was, I think, Pride & Prejudice. But it’s been nearly a week and I’ve still not shared about it.

While I know the story of A Streetcar Named Desire, I’ve still never seen the movie. The play was good, though, and makes me really want to see the movie. I forgot to ask at the rental place if they have it. Maybe I’ll look for it on Ebay or something. The movie was released in 1951 and stars Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh.

Seeing Stars

Part of our kitchen cabinets aren’t over anything, this section is between cabinet and the stove. So we keep the trashcan there.

This morning, I was adjusting the can and was apparently closer to the wall than I thought I was and when I stood up, I banged the back of my head into the bottom of the cabinets. I was lucid enough to consciously stop myself from cursing aloud but wow, talk about getting a headache instantly! That and my eyeballs, all around, were suddenly hurting, too.
