you know,

it's okay not to make 80 crafty valentines when they're happy with Phineas & Ferb from a box.

I watched way more than 2 hours of tv a day and had the movie Grease memorized before I was 10.

I look funny with big earrings.

I drag my feet when I walk on the carpet to make fake vaccum marks.

I like high fructose corn syrup.

Love Grease. Love, LOVE it.
Didn't realize until way, way later in life--like after I was married and hadn't seen it in ten years--that the lyrics I knew by heart might not be so appropriate for the church gatherings where I used to sing solo. (Word to the young--don't recite lyrics in public unless you know what they mean.)
And still, I love it.

I literally laughed out loud about you dragging your feet on the carpet. Best tip I've read all week - pure genius :)

Have a fabulous weekend!

LOVE high fructose corn syrup. And it hates me. I have asked myself one hundred times why it has to be so bad for me...

Oh Cally, what a great idea. Drag your feet to make vacume marks. That is hysterical.

I soooo remember, In fact I think the first time I ever saw Grease, was when you guys lived in Denver and you had it video'd. Loved It.

your my sweet little valentine niece.

Yup Kari. It came on tv a while ago and I made my husband stop to watch it with me...during "you're the one that I want" at the carnival and he was like..."this is horrible Cally. You used to watch this?!" And I did. many times. And never knew it was so bad. but it is.

You're funny.

My dog is named Zuko. After Danny Zuko, of Grease. I recently posted pictures of him because he just turned one year old!

And I just decided that I will start dragging my feet too.

I remember sitting on your front swing in Denver, and sing summer lovin until the sun went down!!! those were the day's!!!!

Chris said...

Amen to the valentines. I realized they don't have to something crafty...they won't appreciate it, and it was not a good use of my time. We don't have carpet...but if we ever put it in again, great tip!

Melissa said...

Carol said...

You are my kind of girl!! I was excited to share Grease with my girls and was SHOCKED when I heard the lyrics again. I guess we were way innocent back then .....

amber said...

I chuckled outloud about the valentine's (yes...I have been in a funk and am just now catching up). I had webbed fingers for days from spray mount used in doing 60-something handmade, personalized valentine's and both boys bring home boxes of the little foldover, write their name on them kinda cards and I questioned my sanity. I do it because i like to make things that i would like to receive. i like to be creative and artsy fartsy...but do they really care? nah. lol
