Are you tired of me yet?

Clancy asked How did you meet your husband and how did he propose? I'm just going to direct you to this anniversary post, which will give you all the juicy details. (And for my Big Love watching buddies, no we are not polygamists. ;) )

What super hero or super power would you love to be/have? Why? I think I would like to be able to freeze time. Either that or reverse time. Then I'd have all the time in the world to get everything I needed to done. Don't want to clean the house? No problem. Just freeze time until you're feeling more like doing it. Babies growing up too fast? No problem, just rewind the clock and enjoy a few more minutes with them. Wouldn't that be great?


If you had to assign gender to salt and pepper which would be male and which would be female and why? Okay, this question cracked me up because I actually think about this fairly frequently. Blue's Clues drives me nuts because it's backwards to me. It should Mr Pepper and Mrs Salt. Seriously, it annoys me. And Blue is a girl??? What? In my head, he's a HE! (And I have no idea as to the why. That's just the way it should be.)

When you go to sleep at night do you fall right to sleep or do you stay awake forever thinking about a zillion things? If it's the latter, give an example of your thought process. I so CAN'T fall asleep fast. I envy those of you who do. My mind goes a million miles an hour thinking about what I didn't get done, what I need to do tomorrow, how mean I was to my kids, the come back I should have said but wasn't witty enough to think of right off, what I forgot on my grocery list, the characters in the current book I'm reading, and then right as I start to cross the threshold from consciousness to unconsciousness my mind starts remembering dreams from previous nights. And I also think up crazy new things to dream, everything from flying purple monsters to tropical paradise islands.

Lula said Just talk about Lost... Whoo-Hoo!!!!! Favorite show EVER and I can't wait until it's back this week!! And I know I do this every year at this time, but click here and here and get your excited juices flowing!

Alright, enough about me for today. How about a funny from Alyssa to end on? The other day she saw a drivers ed car and it had a sign on the top that read "A+ Student Driver" (the name of the company). She asked, "Why does it have the sign on top?" I told her so that other drivers would be aware that it was a person learning to drive. So then she asked, "Do they all have to have a sign?" I told her yes, so that other cars would know to be careful around them. Then she says, "But what if it's a D- student?" LOLLLLL!!!! She didn't understand that it was the company not the grade being displayed.

I love Alyssa's comment. She's a quick one to come up with that, even if it is funny to the rest of us.

Wendy said...

Great post, Elena. I followed the link to your love story -- fairy tale stuff, girl! I enjoyed the answers you gave and have a special appreciation for Alyssa's funny -- I'm the mom of a 15 year old soon to be driver. (shudder)

LOL

I watched your and jaroms anniversary video, and you two are so cute, I almost cried!(That's cause I'm a baby though) Your kids are so funny, I love when natalie tells me stories about them, they always crack me up.

Clancy In Idaho said...

YAY! That is an awesome story! I can't believe you crushed on him since 7th grade! Both hilarious and awesome!

And I like your super powers. Does it work for only you or can I borrow you when my MIL is coming up and I need to clean my house and I've procrastinated it til the freak-out, get-an-ulcer last minute!?

K. thanks.

Miki said...

Yes, I still think Alyssa's idea is PERFECT. We should have everyone's drivers ed. grades and driver's license test grade combined score and in BOLD letters right on top of their personal cars. That way, you could watch out for those C- drivers....

Someone didn't give you the right of way? Ohhh....C-....that explains it.
