Climb Ev'ry Mountain...

L. Bruce the Spruce Moose,

I am continuing to blog in your busy-with-work absence, mostly because I enjoy the sound of my own...typing? Also, I drank entirely too much coffee throughout the day today and I need an outlet besides tapping my feet.

Unfortunately, I don't really have much news on the knitting front. I'm still chug-chugging away at what has become a very boring Mother's Day Clapotis in peach cotton. Daniel (my baby brother) and I have come to a silent agreement that my parents are on crack with this whole "me taking all of Daniel's stuff" thing.

Also on the Ross, Ohio front, your husband seems to think you guys are coming out later in May. Myself, I'm still planning on the weekend we talked about (May 4 thru May 7), unless you tell me otherwise. Really, it doesn't matter when we go because we're going to have a magical time! Is your grandmother's pool ready? Because we're all tired of swimming in the gravel pit, dude. Did I just out us as being way more "hillbilly" than people previously thought? Oh well.

I've decided to watch the "Sound of Music" tonight (hence the title). Ever since Nick sent me that "How do you solve a problem like Maria" email, it's been stuck in my head. I have found that I cannot watch the Sound of Music without:
a) Singing along to all the music
b) Speaking along with all the dialogue
c) Taunt the characters with what happens later in the film
  • FILM: "I'm Leisol. I'm sixteen years old and I don't need a governess."
  • KAREN: "Ha ha! you're gonna get dumped by a Nazi!"
  • (usually accompanied by wine)

...so it's really best at this point that I always watch it alone.


In other news, I am a Sam's Club cardholding member. (Because of work.) I have been for some time, but I'd never actually wandered around the store taking in all the incredible deals until last week. They have some awesome deals! Like, you know how the energy efficient lightbulbs are about $5 each at Target? At Sam's, I got a pack of 12 for $13!! That is almost as cheap as regular bulbs. And they had a huge 40-pack of condoms for $10. In hindsight, maybe I shouldn't have bought those because I've probably jinxed myself to a life of celibacy. Anyway, deals! Yay!

Okay, I just read over what I've written, and I'm appalled at the overuse of exclamation points. I think I'd better go run around the block and then have a drink.

Max, good score on the bulbs. WTF about the condoms? Are you double bagging 'em or something? ...I could go on but I wont.

I seriously thought I was the only person who did that to the sound of music.
