Warning! Language at the end of the video.

James introduced me to this clip.

It's the perfect thing when you're in the mood for a quick cringe and a hearty laugh.

"It's not scratched, it's broken. Oh ... this is broken?"

Poor homeless guy.

Dra found this and posted it on her blog first.
I had to steal it, and I will confess that it really got to me. (As in close to tears.)
Apparently, my true love is MarioKart.
I heart that game.

Take a Chill Pill

Hometeachers. Where to even start? Crazy to the max seems to cover all bases.

Today's riddle unfolded when my home teacher (just one home teacher was present which is a completely different, possibly unbloggable story) reminded me that I got to choose who said the prayer because I'm head of the household. He loves saying this every single month, and I pinch my hand to keep my eyes from rolling. "I'll say the opening prayer if you say the closing."

Unfortunately, during the prayer I managed, "We are so glad that Joseph is here to visit teach."

Prayer ends, Joseph frowns.
"I'm here to home teach."

I was so confused, but quickly caught on, and laughed, "Oh! Did I say visit teach?" Ha ha ha. However, apparently I found it way too funny.

"I'm here to home teach." My laughing skidded to a stop. 
Sorry! It's not like you're going to turn into a girl because I said visit teach instead of home teach in a prayer!

P.S. Teaching an entire lesson about the importance of prayer, and then leaving without saying a closing prayer ... priceless.

I want my own place!
Can I, please? Where do I even start? I am so oblivious to all of this. Why didn't I look when I first got my big-girl job? All of these years paying rent ... what a tremendous waste. 
Is this out of reach with a single income? I have become obsessed with looking at stupid craigslist and all of the flashy pictures of tempting townhouses that seem unattainable.

In The Know: Are Our Children Learning Enough About Whales?

"I remember learning that song in school."

Can't get enough of this radical video.

Thank you Faker for keeping it real deal Holyfield.

The Day of My Birth

Ben blew it out of the water with these orange tulips.
Em and my mom arranged these bad boys, and they're still hanging on!

I got to play with the boys all night.

Zach: "We saved the best for last, we bought your favorite nintendo game!"

I patiently pretended like I was enjoying my party as it wrapped up, but inside I was desperate to escape downstairs so that I could beat Life Force.

The Day

  • Worked out with Ben. (I was slightly grumpy though. Who works out on their birthday?)
  • Ben made me a delectable lunch.
  • Shopped with Em ... and Ben. (Poor Ben.)
  • Squeezed in a game o' bowling. The night before, Ben, Anth, and I bowled, and I bowled a 132. That's quite good for me, and I beat the men, so that's quite good for my ego.
  • Ate the best birthday dinner ever. I hesitated as I requested Thai food for my birthday dinner, but my mom took on the challenge, and boy howdy, it was amazing! (I'm still craving the soup.)
  • Showed off the flowers Ben gave me.
  • Kicked around the mess of balloons that Dra had blown up for me. (The boys loved this the most.)
  • Opened hilarious/thoughtful/useful presents.
  • Beat Life Force

What a grand celebration; thanks to everyone for wishing me the best.
