Soccer, Super Chick and Lipstick...

Ok. So, soccer got cancelled Friday b/c of the "torrential" rain (notice I didn't capitalize "rain", so it there really was wet stuff falling from the sky..) Whew... However, we had it Saturday. It was hot and I kinda got sunburned on my legs. I hate that; you know, when you have shorts on... Anyway, it was a small victory. I actually interacted with one of the parents. I totally agreed with him that our team's name should be the "Wild Kudzu". Our color is green. If you don't know what "kudzu" is, it's a vine that grows EVERYWHERE in the South and is totally destructive. Anyway, they went with the "Dragons"... So cliche, but whatever. I suppose things that breath fire are cool.

Super Chick and Bear (her little one) came over this weekend. She decided by the time they left that he would need a 'big rig'... aka - Optimus Prime... Then we tried to make dinner. Since I have nothing to eat, we had grilled cheese. But, she's so cool. She goes everywhere with this arsenal of fruit and 'crunchies' for the little guy. Yes, she has a boy as well. There is NO pink in my life. Even though Big Rig was eating his grilled cheese, Bear would have no part of it. It's so funny to watch her little one and remember what it was like when mine wouldn't eat anything but, oh, I don't know, cardboard for example. After grilled cheese, blueberries, strawberries, a tangelo, Bear finally decided on 'crunchies' for dinner. It's just funny...

So, Lipstick, this one is for you... On the way home from soccer, here was the conversation with Born Cool...

BC: Did you ever get Lipstick's email?
Me: What?
BC: Did you ever get Lipstick's email?
Me: Yeah... Why?
BC: I was just wondering, you know, since you went to high school with her and all.
Me: You like Lipstick, huh?
BC: Yeah.
Me: She's pretty, isn't she?
BC: Yeah, but I think she'd be a good babysitter.
Me: What?? You know she's a mom too, right?
BC: Yeah, but I think she would be fun to play games with.
Me: Oh yeah, what kind of games...
BC: I don't know; like maybe Wii games or something. Mario Cart maybe?
Me: Maybe you're right...
BC: I mean, I can already beat you on all those games. I'm just sayin'...
Me: So, you're saying I'm no good...
BC: I didn't say that. I'm just sayin'... Can we go get me a Gatorade?
Me: Ok...

He's only met you once; but apparently, you left an impression. He even totally remembered your name correctly and all...

We went to church with my dad today, so I'm just getting off to Wally World. I don't know who likes Oreo's here, but I tried the "Banana Split" Oreos. If you like the taste of banana laffy taffy, then you would like these. Super Chick says the peanut butter ones are good. I think I'll try those... I'll let you know...

I'll be back with a hot guy later. I'm meditating on who deserves their picture on my blog... If I see a hot guy at Wally World, I'll just take his pic... Later...

OMG!!!!! This post totally MADE MY DAY!! I love it! Born Cool is so...well, cool.

Funny about the kudzu too-this weekend we were trying to think of a vine to go around our fence, something low maintenance, and we were laughing about how we could have kudzu (and subsequently destroy the neighborhood).

I did not know that Super Chick had a little one. I got your email with her email. I will try and write her tonight. I think that is really funny that she always has snacks. So prepared. Remember when she won the Spelling Bee? She has been smart forever!

Ahh- the dreaded farmer tan strikes huh? We have had some funny team names in my kids sports days, we have been the Black Puppies and the Flaming(tee hee) White Tigers. Our U14 team was green and they were Pain in the Grass, which was kinda cute.
Jason Mraz is coming to SD in October, I have dropped hints that Hubs should get tix, it would be good for his health.
