Amazing Allysen just up and quit talking right after my post on Friday. Apparently she asked my daughter to hand her her cell phone so she could dial a friend for Truth or Dare and then she started yapping but no sound would come out. The way my daughter imitates the incident cracks me up. I was quick to write etoys about the issue and they said, "no worries, dispose of that doll as you see fit and we are shipping you a new one express mail."
WHA??? What sort of good fortune is that?! Unheard of customer service! I am going to have to give them eleven stars in their review. Let's just hope this Allysen actually holds up and works.
My Martin is still in the shop. Maybe it will be back on Thursday? My phantom Martin...it has been eleven weeks. Did you hear that? ELEVEN WEEKS. Eleven sets of seven. Seventy seven days? Nope, seventy eight.
I saw 300 over the weekend. Thank goodness for rentals, eh? Good grief, Dear Sir and I have not been to a movie in ages. I mean, real ages. No sitter. And we probably couldn't afford one anyway. It gets to look like ten bucks an hour around here, no joke. Dinner and a movie quickly turns into over a hundred bucks with that kind of spending.
About 300---I don't think those abs were real. I mean, they looked gross, and I don't know if they are humanly possible. Even on a Spartan. Maybe I am wrong. And that is pretty much all I have to say about that movie!
And the mailbox that got annihilated about a month ago---still is sitting there in the same state. Anyone have advice on what to say to the slacker neighbors to get them to fix it? I find it very interesting that they have to fix our mailbox now when they can't even walk to get their mail. You know, the drive box people? Search your memory. I just ran a lot and I am too tired to link it. They are famous in my house for pulling up to their mailbox every day and getting their mail in that fashion instead of getting out of the car once they get home and walking a few steps to retrieve.
Dear Sir's birthday is tomorrow. The man will be younger than his real age (I estimate it to be around 71 years). He is an elf, I tell you. A man of the ancient times, who cracks old, dusty books open and inhales ancient mites. He is a very patient man. His ability to wait is a gift many of us never are able to grasp. And he is smart. Real smart. And he acts like I am smart too, but it is ok that he is just being nice because like I said, he is an old soul and he is a wise man. Wise men do this. The day after watching 300 he gave me a huge lesson by mouth about Xerxes, the Spartans, and all that stuff. I think he was there, man. And you know what? That's why I don't think those abs were real because he saw them. He witnessed them.
I think he senses I am writing this so I better go.
Also, I think Carolanne tagged me for a meme since my name is Rachel, but not sure. I will do it anyway just in case :) :
FIVE THINGS TO LET KIDS KNOW BEFORE THEY GROW UP:
1. Do not seek to please anyone on this earth except God. If you do this, you will find that this will miraculously please others as well, but always please God first and foremost. Live in love.
2. I am not perfect so please do not put me on a pedestal. I will fail you, but God will not. My failings I hope, will show you how great the measure of God's grace is.
3. Flee from idolatry---nothing else will satisfy you like God, which brings me back to #1. (Game Cubes, cars, money, spouses, etc will not fulfill you)
4. You need a degree if you want to get a decent job. This is learned the hard way.
5. Discipline physically and spiritually (this the most) is how one should go about living as an adult.
