A Stolen Meme I don't know why I did.

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named Becky from Musings from the Sofa. She credits two bloggers for her theft, the Queen, and also Zoesmom. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all us thieves!

Last Night Around The Dinner Table

We were at dinner when Crystal, who couldn't keep from checking twitter to see if she won an iPhone, said "Michael Jackson is dead!" I thought she was joking or someone else was joking but she said she got it from a totally trustworthy source - TMZ.

The first thing out of my mouth was "The Thriller is gone"

Then, after the girls decided who was going to write that on facebook, I said "I guess he beat it beat it beat it." and they were happy because now they each had something to write.

Later I went to facebook and added that he is "Gone too soon" but I don't think they got it.

We are all going to hell. How can you help what pops into your mind?

King of Pop, R.I.P.

Also, say "Hi" to Elvis for us!

p.s Crystal did not win an iPhone from twitter. In light of this tragedy, your paypal donations would be greatly appreciated.

This One's for You, Bloggess

I went on vacation with my husband and four kids ranging in age from sixteen to twenty three. I said this was what I wanted for Mother's Day/My birthday. My husband, who says he likes to spoil me, agreed to this plan easy-peasy. Hilton Head Island, here we come! It's my favorite vacation spot. If they could put Versailles on the Island it would be my perfect paradise. Maybe I should start a petition? Would any of you sign it?

So... anyway... We were vacationing our little butts off (I love how I can make my butt little on my blog!) and we went to eat at Fuddruckers. The name seems almost porno, but really it's a groovy hamburger joint. I hope, for your own sake, you have eaten at a Fuddruckers.

Guess how they do things at Fuddruckers? You stand in line, place your order, and then go sit and wait until they call you. So when Ryan, who was having a birthday the next day, asked my name I got all giddy. I thought about it for a few seconds and then I said the only thing I could say, really. I said "Wolverines."

Ryan grinned and looked at me again "Wolverines?" he asked.

"Wolverines." I repeated.

He wrote it down, and a few minutes later, in a very packed Fuddruckers, the girl grabbed the mic and said "Wolverines, your order is ready." A few people laughed, but I'm pretty sure it was out of a deep, deep respect.

I saved the receipt in your honor, Bloggess, and if you ever decide to collect these I'll be glad to forward it to you.

Also, on the 12 hour drive home from Hilton Head we noticed a lot of people taking pictures of the back of our car. I can't figure it out. What is wrong with the back of my van?
