"I can't wait to go to the dentist."
These words were uttered by the 6 year old Boy today, I shit you not. The Prawn was awfully fired up, too. All four went. All four had fantastic check-ups. We blasted our eardrums out on the way to and from Ann Arbor listening to The Killers and singing along. It was a gorgeous, beautiful, amazing, wonderful, perfect summer day. " Hallelujah Jaffar!" Can I have an "amen!"?
I love Michigan. It's beautiful here. I need to take the camera along when we drive places, so I can show you all how everything on the way to everywhere is tree-lined and stunning, but I suppose that eventually I'd wreck the car trying to drive and snap simultaneously (and in rapid succession - that's for you She-Ra. And I want to talk to you for more than 12.5 seconds sometime, dammit.)
Here's my pseudo-inspirational thing for the day: it's never too late to learn a new skill. Or multiple ones. ;-) And the more you practice, of course, the better you get at it. (Hallelujah Jaffar!!)
If I sound all smiley, it's because I am.
One of the Saturdays this weekend (we counted the 4 day weekend as 3 Sats and a Sun) we went to Main Street in Ann Arbor, which is rather reminiscent of State St. in Madison, though a lot shorter, and with cars. There are lots of little restaurants and interesting shops tending toward artsy, New Age, etc. As we passed one of the Irish Pubs (come back, She-Ra - you could score Navan so many gigs here it's not even funny) I noticed a tiny little door set into the the door of the shop next door. There was a little sill in front of it, at the bottom, which had some coins on it. Turns out it's a "fairy door" and there are several around town. We'll have to look them up. How handy to have a list of locations on that page.
I got dibs on another review book, so hopefully that will be coming soon.
Tonight we watched - hmm. I don't know what it was called. I grabbed it at the library. Ah, found it - The Recruit. Eh. It was interesting but had at least one major problem. And lately I can call everything about an hour before it happens, more by formula than by actual clues given, so, eh - a good one-time view, but doesn't invite repeat viewing.
The Boondock Saints (in case you missed the link the first time), on the other hand, is an awesome script and I appreciate it more every time I see it. In Nomeni Patris, et Fili, et Spiritus Sancti.
