"My balls!"

Stew was in our backyard practicing with his new golf set when Joe went by with the lawnmower (not running). Well, the lawnmower ran over a couple of the golf balls. Stew yelled out, "My balls!" and all I could think was "I bet that won't be the only time you'll make that remark in your lifetime.".
Sorry, I just had to share.
Oh, and the balls were fine.

What a night!!!

Since I have two posts on here about whether I was going to go to the George Michael concert, I only think it fits that I should now say how it was. To quote the man himself, it was "Amazing"!!!!!!!
First off, it was completely worth the price of admission and for all of those who wanted to go but were not willing to pay that price.....you missed out! It was like one giant dance party where everyone was there to have fun. I looked around the audience and you couldn't see anyone standing still...everyone was moving!
My seat was better than I thought it was. I was actually in shock at how good my seat was. Considering I had never been to the ACC before I really didn't know what to expect. It was a nice surprise. I sat down and went straight into a conversation with the people around me. It ended up the girl beside me was there by herself too. And the couple in front of us were so nice. Even though the show didn't start until 8:50 we were passing the time chatting.

For anyone wondering, here's the playlist for the night:

As you can see it was one great night and I loved every minute of it! I met some new friends and got some exercise from dancing my ass off! I stepped out of my box doing this by myself and it was worth it. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. It was one great birthday present! One I won't forget any time soon.
Now I must go make myself some tea in my new "Faith" mug.

A very weird dream

This is a dream that I had on Saturday night. Actually, it is the one I woke up from on Sunday morning and it took a bit to get out of my head. Let me tell you about the dream and then I'll tell you why.

This is how I remember my dream starting:

I was in a little Mexican variety store buying some type of plastic box that was about the size of my hand. I don't really remember anything about it only that it was then put in a grocery bag and before I left I turned to the old lady behind the counter and asked her if she had any smack I could buy. (Yup, you read it right.) She took me to the back of the store where I purchased a couple of tiny bags of white powder. I looked at it not really sure what to do with it. I put some in my mouth under my tongue and was about to walk out. Nothing was happening, so I turned around to the old lady and motioned to the top of her tongue meaning that was where I was supposed to put it. So, I did that with the second package. Then things started to happen. It was like everything started shaking and I was all jittery. It was like my brain couldn't stay still. It was like it was buzzing if that makes sense.
Next thing I know I am walking through the Civic parking lot going north. Then I started having this internal conversation of "Oh my god I just ingested drugs! I am now high! I can't go home to Joe and the kids like this. Do people know I am high?" Anyway, that is where I woke up...still a little freaked out.

Here's the crazy thing......I have never taken drugs in my entire life!! Hell, I haven't even had a drag of a cigarette. My friend Mary once asked me to hold her cigarette for her and I looked like I was holding the most foreign object in my hands. I don't even think the drug I asked for in my dream goes with what I received or how I ingested it. So, how did I dream about a drug trip?! It kinda freaked me out because it felt so real.

Anyway, I just had to share my crazy mind.

Last night Joe and I went to see "Wanted". First off.....amazing!!!! It totally satisfied the tomboy in me who can appreciate a good action movie. But this blog entry isn't really about that.
While we were waiting for the movie to start I was doing the thing I always do.....judging everyone who walks in on whether they will be a "talker" or not. This woman walked in who caught my eye. Right away she looked like someone who was in the wrong theatre. She was probably in her 60's, frumpy and just completely out of place among the rest of the theatre which consisted mostly of men in their early 20's and their dates. Then, just as the lights were going down, two more women sat down beside her who look pretty much just like her. I leaned over to Joe and said, "They do not know what they're coming to see. They are not going to like this movie.".
Okay, lets fast-forward to the end of the movie where I am walking out of the theatre with the massive crowd. I am just about to say to Joe, "I loved that! It was amazing! Did I laugh too loud at the exploding rat part?", when behind me I hear "Well, that was a complete waste of money!". I turned around to see where it was coming from and who was standing behind me? Yup, the three ladies out for a girl's night to see a movie.
I actually started to laugh at this point. This woman kept going on and on about the faults of the movie. I was so tempted to turn around and say to her:
"Lady, I knew from the moment you walked into the theatre that you weren't going to like this movie. It was an action movie. It was a graphic action movie. And if you couldn't have figured that out within the first five minutes it's your own fault that your money was wasted. You should have got up, went to the ticket booth and exchanged your tickets for "Sex and the City" which is where you belonged."
But I didn't say that. Instead, I just happily laughed away as I walked to my car. Still high from seeing a great movie.
