While we were driving home from the bank today.
Me: I can't wait till I'm old and get to wear cool glasses because I actually need them.
Rainor: You are the oddest person I have ever know.
We happened to pass Nana and Daniel coming out of the hardware store on our way home. I stuck my face against the window and made a freaky face at Daniel.
Rainor: *Look of extreme wonder/disbelief* Elisabeth, I don't even know what to say.
This is a quote from 'Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy' (and excellent movie) put into the mouths of my siblings. Each quote matches the person in my family perfectly.
Rainor: Look, we can sit an talk about what's normal till the cows come home.
Christa: What's normal?
Me: What's home?
Daniel: What are cows?
Speaking of Daniel, his birthday is next week, so we went to see Iron Man today in honor, followed by Pizza. I thought the movie was going to be a total bore - and I actually enjoyed it. Not half bad for a comicbook movie. At Abby's the tv was turned to MSNBC and Dan Abrams show was on. I couldn't hear it very well, but I thought he was cute and charming. Mom and I spent the whole meal discussing the fate of the republican party.
My dear friend Katie called when we got home. She bought her plane tickets and is coming out. I can't wait!
