How'dja Like To Be A Meme

I have a meme, but before I start, I have to share my favorite Bo moment of the day.
I just spent 4 hours running about 3 errands. Okay, it entailed 25 minutes of racquetball with Bo and a trip through the McDonald's drive thru, but STILL. Four hours? Give me a break! I even got to leave Avee with a friend (thanks Kim!) which was really wonderful because she'd been much like expired milk for me all morning. She was nice for Kim. She quickly resumed her pleasant disposition once she was back in my care. I had the nerve to try and put a coat on her and make her leave her friends house after THREE HOURS.

So, I spent a nice afternoon running errands with Bo. He's a delightful little boy. Not so great at focusing and hearing me when I say, "don't run into tha-DON'T RUN INTO THAT LADY!" But I definitely love him.

After getting Avery from her friend's house, she screamed us all the way home. I unbuckled her and she launched herself into the back of the van and sat on the Dora yogurts and fat free cottage cheese I had just bought. For some reason, she thought that would show me. It was her butt covered in dairy product, not mine.

When we got inside Bo asked if he could play a computer game. J just unearthed several boardgames that have been adapted for the computer. I found "Operation" and asked him if he'd like to play that. He wanted to know what "Operation" was. I said, "It's like a doctor doing surgery." He said, "Oh yeah, I know what that is, it's when they sneak up behind you and attack and try to knock you out."

I said, "Yep. And that's exactly how my gall bladder was removed."

Just the other day I was thinking to myself "I want to do a meme" but I had nothing.

The very next day I was tagged by my friend Sally from Down Under.

So thanks Sally!

TV Shows I watch...
The Office. I like Prison Break but I always end up watching it on the computer or Itunes, the timing is never right for me. But I love that show. I watch Without a Trace, Law and Order (selectively), Journeyman, The Medium (I've fallen in love with that show---I love the dynamic between Allison and Joe. Joe who? Joe Mama), and I've recently discovered the Real Housewives of Orange County. I can always gauge how bad a show is by how much "dialoguing" with the characters J does. Oh yeah, I also love Monk.

Websites I visit...
My blogroll blogs and Sketchy because her blog doesn't work on my blogroll, Shutterfly, Wantnot is on my blogroll, but I'm obsessed with that blog, Amazon, Youtube can suck me in if I'm not careful, my bank.

Hey I'VE visited OBGYN too! How crazy is that??

omar said...

My mama's house is actually a fairly short drive away from Niagara Falls. Two birds with one stone. Actually, you can only see the good parts of the falls from the Canadian side, so that's three birds.

I'd have to double check, but I'm pretty sure nobody's ever killed three birds with one stone before. (And I mean nobody, not Nobody.)

-"He said, 'Oh yeah, I know what that is, it's when they sneak up behind you and attack and try to knock you out.'"

Reminds me of residency when I was to anesthetize a larger (6'8" 280lbs) mentally challenged patient who needed dental surgery. My attending anesthesiologist handed me a syringe of a sedative, said, "Sneak up behind him, slam it in his butt, and run. I'll follow, and catch him as he gets sleepy."

Shoot. I've had about a million. Ok, maybe ten memes that I thought of passing to you, but didn't think you would want them. *sniff* You know, you just gotta say the word, and I'll hook you up. 'Course, it probly means I have to do them myself first. OK. Nevermind. :)

I heart Bo.

And Nate just about made me wet my pants.

Lisa said...

I lived so close to Niagra Falls once, that everyone who visited wanted to go. So we went. 500 times! It got to be, "Here are the falls, are ya done lookin'? Okay, good...let's go." They were cool the first couple of times....

I expected to see trash shows on your TV list. But instead I saw some of my favorite DVR'd shows that I watch when on the elliptical. I love Journeyman, Law & Order, and MONK! I've never heard of the Housewives of the OC, but I know a few....

wendy said...

I wish I had a copy of the Scarlet Pimpernell. I may have to steal my mil's next time we visit.

I've only watched prison break a few times, but I'd just like to say that the younger brother with the shaved head it hawt! I could be thinking of the wrong show...I'm not sure!

Barnecked Lady said...

Um no, Wendy you are not thinking of the wrong show Wentworth Miller is HOTTER THAN HOT!!!!

Kikibug said...

Yep, Avery is turning 3 soon! Carma is going through the same thing!!! The NERVE of me making her wear sleeves in the WINTER and a COAT!! and trying to brush her hair! THE NERVE! I knew it was the terrible three's and not two's, but I was starting to forget and hoping that Carma would miss the temper tantrum years..... ohhh it is all coming back to me now!

I loved your list! You can come to my Mama's house anytime. (Btw, Carma called me Big Mama (ok it was big mommy and I corrected her, if you are going to call me big mommy you need to learn how to say it right.. BIG MAMA). I LOVE Monk too, there is a show called Psych on USA that is SO funny an so much like Monk. OK, sorry for the Novel, but I miss you!
