Okay, sorry about the total rant last time. It just has to happen every once in a while, when something gets to me. I think a lot of things had been getting to me and that was the last straw. So here are some less serious things that have been going on lately, since I haven't posted in a while.
Judah's getting really really good at walking and wants to walk everywhere now. He hardly ever falls at all. He still only has a few words, but he's beginning to imitate us more. He says Dada, Mama (on occasion, but usually insists on calling both Nathan and me Dada), kitty, and down. And if we sing "Ay yi yi yi" at him he'll sing it back to us. His latest trick is body slamming the cat.
My 30th is approaching way too fast for comfort. For my birthday, I had wanted this U2 cover band to play, but they're a little too expensive.
Ashlee. What are we going to do with her? Two weeks ago we're hanging out at Fashion Island in Newport and she stops outside Baby Style and says, "Wanna go in?" That was her way of telling me she's pregnant! Then today she goes for her first doctor's appointment and calls me soon after seeing the ultrasound. I didn't answer, so Nathan called me a few minutes later and broke the news Brian had just broken to him. Twins! No way. And just when they're moving to Phoenix and Brian's starting a new job. Talk about major life changes. I get the feeling that I'm going to become very familiar with the lovely city of Phoenix.
I was wandering around the internet the other day and found something that made me super happy. See, I loved loved loved Toad the Wet Sprocket in college but I never got a chance to see them and they broke up in 1998. But when I found their website I discovered that they're back together and touring this summer! I'm so excited. And it's all general admission seating...
I heard this guy for the first time yesterday and I have the feeling that if he'd been around when I was in college my life might've been really different. Check him out on Pandora by creating Owen radio. It's kinda weird who they play on his station, everyone from Morrissey to Jennifer Knapp, two people I never would have put together.
Today I went to the grocery store and then to Panda Express to pick up dinner. At the store a woman asked to go in front of the woman behind me since she only had two items. But she didn't ask nicely, like, "Hey, would you mind if I went before you? I'm in a super big hurry." She asked like she deserved it. Then at Panda the woman in front of me took every last cookie in the fortune cookie basket, then looked at me and said "Sorry" in a non-apologetic way. Yorba Linda! People are weird around here.
