long time no nothing

It has been such a long time, y'all. Hopefully everyone survived the absence of Yippee! Since I am still here on earth after yesterday's rapture, I decided it was finally time to write a blog so all of us left behind-ers could enjoy it.

But, seriously...

Last time we spoke we talked about how cool my mom was. Excuse me, IS--How cool she IS. I could wait to write a new post until Father's Day so we could talk about my Daddy-O and post some old school fatty fatty no friends pictures, but I'm not sure my avid readers could survive that long without an update. So, I'm writing and you're welcome.

Who wants a quick review of the past two weeks? (If your answer was "No," then please stop reading here)

1) Once upon a time, Neil Simon wrote this play. Called Rumors. It's kindofreallyseriouslyforreals hilarious and bonus, that mom I was telling y'all all about, yeah she was in it and I got to see it lots of times. I also got a new BFFA (best friend for awhile, duh) outta this shindig, haaaaay Tony! Thanks for playing my mom's husband and coming over to our house and making CD's and eating brie with me. Moral of this story? A great play had great people in it and great people in the audience and we all lived happily ever after.

2) Graduation. Lots of graduations. My Agnes Scottie friends graduated and got to flip dem rings around to face the world. For those of you not in the know yes, flipping Agnes rings is a big deal. Also for those of you not the know, this is how most people pose in graduation photos.
years before the ring flip

3) A week ago it was in the 50's and I wanted to put my flannel sheets back on my bed. 2 days ago it was in the high 90's and I wanted to turn myself into a giant human ice cube. Whattyaknow, once again Georgia is keeping us on our toes. Nice try GA, but I've still got my pointe shoes and I can play this game all summer long. 

But please don't be in the 100's all summer...

4) My dad and I are plugging through the new Star Trek movie right now. It's one of those movies where we take a pausesies break every 5 minutes and have a conversation like so:
R: Okay, so Vulcans evolved from the planet Vulcan and have weeded out their violent past and show no emotion.
E: K, their eyebrows look like those other dude's eyebrows.
R: The Romulans? Yes, they share the same ancestors, but the Romulans are still violent.
E: K. (plays movie)
R: Wait, pause. Okay, this Spock looks JUST LIKE the guy who played Spock in the TV series.
E: (plays movie)
R: Wait, pause. Spock and Kirk are good friends. Well, Leonard McCoy too. They're the trio of main characters. They call him Bones though. 
E: (plays movie)

Can you guess what happens next? That's right, the explanation of the worm hole/black hole part comes on and I sit with my mouth open in a super duper confused state. Wait, pause break. Okay, time to fully give my attention to Spock. And. James T. Kirk. And Bones man. 

BRB in a few days, or weeks, or months. I'm good at drawing out the length of time between each post.

Best Ever

May is turning out to be just a jolly little ole month. The first Sunday was Ann's birthday. Not just any birthday, mmkay? This was the one and only Sweet 16. We managed to pull off a surprise party for her and it will air on the next season of My Super Sweet 16.

Just kidding.

It was a pretty sweet party. Just minus the famous rapper, a few thousand bucks, and the new car. But, who needs those things when nothing is sweeter than celebrating with your closest friends and family? ;) Also, when you have a father with a car and a mom with a minivan, why would you even need your own car? (Ann, are you reading this? Is it making you feel better?)

Now, a week later, we are celebrating another fabulous day---Mother's Day! Just in case some of you were unaware it was Mother's Day, now you know. Although, if you have a Facebook I don't see how you could have possibly missed all the, "Happy Mother's Day to the BEST MOM EVER!"'s or the "You are the best mom a kid could ever imagine having!!!!!!"'s. What you don't know is that all of those statements are false. Wrong. Inaccurate. Because unless all of those people have my mom, then they just have no right saying that. (And I secretly hope you don't all have my mom because then I'd have way more siblings with whom I'd have to share her.)
DAWWW. Had enough cheese yet?

Seriously, best ever. That's exactly what the card I gave her this morning said--best ever. When I was four, I didn't go to preschool (HORRORS). Instead, I got to spend an entire extra year hanging out with MC. That is the year when I learned all the cool tricks that make me awesome now. I know you were wondering how I got to be this way and well, now you know. Partying up in 1993 with MC. Also, side note, we can read each other's minds. How cool is that?! 

We were telepathic-ly communicating about what we wanted to do when we woke up. Probs eat. 

Mom, I love you. I think you're fab. I channel some MC everyday when I am babysitting. I want to keep my kids home from Pre-K just so we can have party time everyday. Thanks for letting me be your favorite child...I mean, what?...
