|This picture is from Minnesota, I took it when we were there for Thanksgiving.|
I hope you all brought in the New Year with thoughts of 2011 being a great year for all of us!
Random Weirdness from the Holiday
1) Binderclips and I were out and about and he received a call from his mom telling us they were at "Bonnaroo". Since Bonnaroo is an outside concert that occurs in Tennessee during the summer time, I knew they were definitely not at Bonnaroo, but decided to just let it go. What I didn't realize is that this would come back to bite me. The very next day I was sitting talking with Binderclips' mom and she said to me "Where were we yesterday? I just can't remember."
Hulabuns: "Hmmm, wasn't it Bonnaroo" I say knowing that isn't right, but hoping it spurs her memory a bit
Binderclips' Mom: She just looks at me like I'm crazy
Hulabuns: "Bonaroom?" I say knowing that still isn't right
Binderclips' Mom: Still looking at me like I'm crazy
Hulabuns: "Bona..something" I say as a last ditch effort
Binderclips' Mom: Oh, Bonarose, that's right!
Hulabuns: See I'm not as crazy as you thought after all!
Binderclips' Mom: I was beginning to wonder there for a minute
2) Binderclips and I stayed at my parents' one night. The next morning we wake up and are getting dressed. He's putting on his socks and the following happened:
Binderclips: As he slides a sock on his foot, he looks over at me. His foot is in the air. He says "Hey, did you pack MY socks?"
Hulabuns: I look over to see his foot still in the air with my sock on it. Like, all the way on it, which is extremely impressive considering I wear a size 5.5 -6 and he wears a 12. I say "WTF?! How did you even get my sock on your foot like that?!"
Binderclips: *confused face*
Hulabuns: Take my sock off, right now *Pretty sure I'm going to lose it face*
Binderclips: Did you bring any of my socks?!
Hulabuns: "What is it with you and socks?! It's like they are invisible to you or something" I say, getting them out of the same pocket that he got my socks out of and handing them to him.
The rest of the day I walked around with a very stretched out sock on my right foot, just so you all know. I was not a fan.
3) This is one of our conversations while on our way to MI in the car:
Binderclips: Turns on the bright headlights then says "Well, those don't help at all. You can't see anything but the trees."
Hulabuns: I like the trees (I'm a major tree hugger, in case you didn't know) and I think they need more light
Binderclips: "Well, I need to see the road and the trees do not need more light" he says sounding a little bit frustrated
Hulabuns: "A little something called 'photosynthesis' says they do" I say knowing that headlights are not the type of light involved in photosynthesis.
Binderclips: *Really? We're going to do that right now face*
The examples above are just a few of the weird things that happened, I'll have to share more of them later. Anyways, I hope you all are doing well!! To my fellow bloggers Bernie at One Mixed Bag and TB and Year 31 I have to send big huge ginormous thanks! They both included me in their favorite blog listings. Thank you ladies for the blog love, you both are 2 of my favorites as well. Also, thanks to the new followers that have found their way here. I, again, can thank TB and Bernie for leading some of you here. I will be checking out your blogs as well when I get caught up on all of my reading.
Also, Binderclips and I are moving. We basically have 2 weeks to get packed and ready to go, so I may not blog as regularly as I would like or read your blogs as much as I would like to for the next couple of weeks. However, believe me, once all the dust settles I'll be right back to it.
Have a great day today! Later gators!
