A few funnies, to demonstrate that I am still blogging :)

My niece was talking about how her baby sister rips pages out of the scriptures, and eats the pages. And I made some comment about how it's no good to eat the pages of the scriptures, and my niece said, "Why not? It says we're supposed to feast upon the word." FAR too clever for a (just turned) 9 (today) year old.

A few minutes later in our phone conversation she said, "Well, do you have anything else to tell me? Because my arm is getting tired, and I even switched a few times."

A little boy in church today, pseudo-whispered during the meeting: "Mommy, if I went outside, Jesus would help me get back inside the church. He helps me."

My hilarious darling Grandma, a month and a half ago, I can't remember the context, but it doesn't matter, it's still 100% Grandma: "Don't be right ALL the time; it's dull."

My youngest sis and her husband are on the west coast for grad school, and we have agreed that it would be really cool at some point to talk on the phone when she is standing in the Pacific Ocean and I am standing in the Atlantic. So on Friday night, when I couldn't bear the thought of just going back to my apartment, I wandered until I found the Potomac River. And I had been so excited to get to the WATER that when I got there I called my sis to tell her. And AS I was leaving a message I realized that this was NOT quite the "event" that I had been thinking, because I was only next to a river, not the ocean. So I left her a kind of sheepish message about how here I was, next to water that is CLOSE to the Atlantic Ocean. And on Saturday I got a reply voicemail: "We thought maybe we'd call you while we were standing in the bathtub - then we'd be in water that was NEAR the ocean." Little snot.

And I need to post Kate's meme, and I had a FABULOUS weekend, such as I have been WANTING to have ever since I moved to this state, so I need to write about that, and I just FINALLY got a batch of pictures off my camera, so I'll get those posted SOON. Really. :)

With all due respect to your grandma, don't knock being right all the time until you've tried it.

Amy said...

Jeremy's right... but so dull...

About your "about me" description, you've got a lot of hoods.

About the post I'm commenting on, that reminded me of Fast & Testimony meeting in the BYU 206th Ward ft. Margaret. =D

Danielle said...

LOL. Your namesake has the same kind of knack for humor as you do!

And Amy - she's such a fun little girl, too, isn't she?

I miss YOU BOTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Will I get to see you during the holidays at all? I hope so!

Thanks for making my Monday a little brighter.

I agree, being right all the time is dull!

So cute!

i think rivers are WAY cooler than the ocean. Definitely cooler than bathtubs, too.

I agree with Grandma. Unfortunately, she'd probably say the same to me, and then take a wooden spoon to my smart-aleck butt. Thank you grandma, I needed to hear that.

I don't find being right all the time as dull...
