I didn't get a chance to post anything yesterday, so I thought I'd bump up Attention Hoar Monday to happening today instead. I'll post my video at the end. But first, about my weekend...
We did a lot of stuff. I wound up taking Friday off because it was so very dead in the office, and I had better things to do at home really, so that worked out well. I'll post photos of the projects I worked on once I get them uploaded. Which I'm sure everyone is very excited about.
The weekend was largely uneventful other than me working in the garage, Leo working at...well, work, and then yesterday we went to see Star Trek, which lived up to the hype, IMO. I don't think it was in any way appropriate for the couple of small children I saw there with their dad - both under the age of 7, in my estimation, but hey...he's the dumbass, not me. So I'm trying to let it go. (I hope the 5 year old had vivid nightmares that involved the red ugly monster from that planet called Delta Vega that Kirk got stranded on, and kept his father up all night with them. Fucking tool...) Other than the fellow movie-goers, all was well. I really enjoyed the movie.
We'd been contacted by some friends earlier in the day about whether we wanted to go to their house for a cookout last night, which we did. That was really nice. So, sooo good to see them, to catch up, and to relax with friends for a bit. I told them the story about the blue ball, and how the activity had started up again after a week of nothing happening with it. (Sunday, we came home from hanging out at the Moose with friends, and found it back in the front window again. It had been sitting in the master bath for 3 days without being touched or moved at all until that point. Once Jake discovered it sitting in the window, he wanted it, so we took it down. Our alternate plan was to just leave it there, for however long it stayed there.)
So we finished up at our friends' house, and headed home about 10:15. It was such a nice night out, I opened the kitchen window when I got in the house. Then I grabbed some carrot sticks from the fridge, and as I was feeling a bit wound up, I sat down to watch the end of the Laker game. Leo wanted a snack, too, so he was grabbing something when I looked into the kitchen to talk to him. Mind you, we couldn't find the blue ball anywhere when we got home. It's become a little game for me to look all over the place for it, and it was nowhere to be found this time. I think I was even saying to Leo that I wanted to look under the furniture for it, and I got stopped cold. By THIS:
Yeah, that would be the blue ball, balanced ON TOP OF the window in the kitchen. The very one that I had taken a moment to open when I got home. And I hadn't seen it there at that point in time.
This got me rolling with laughter. Leo didn't know what I was laughing so hard at, and I couldn't talk, so I got up and went over to point at the ball so he could see. He just walked out of the room with his snack. I took a couple of pictures, and sent one to the Twin so she could see, and then I took the ball down an put it on the floor. Jake found it, and we played with it for a while before Leo put it into a safe place when he went to bed. Poor Leo...he doesn't see the funny side to this little game that's being played. I don't know how to make it stop, though! I already tried! So I'm just rolling with it. I still find it absolutely hilarious.
Alright, on with my day. You know what? Since I had stuff to post about, I'll just skip Attention Hoar Monday this week...no reason to waste a good video, IMO. Next week, I'll post a new one.
