Because of this, I just read the Die Hard wikipedia page and it has made my life so much richer.

Good point! Those beans are also excellent breakfast beans! I’m pretty much in favor of beans at all meals because I am a gross fart monster.

I always bought my tickets online a day before and you choose your seat when you buy the ticket. The hat technique may also work, but then you would have to remember to bring your hat with you.

I can confirm that reserved seating at the movie theater (cinemaaaaaa) in the UK is a thing and and it is the jam. It is one of the things I was very sad to leave when I moved back to the States. Other things I miss: beans for breakfast and orderly queues.

I am so glad someone else remembered. I felt like I was taking crazy pills for a second!

I have a similar story about myself and Taco Bell. I am gross.

Packing For Mars (specifically the part about astronaut toilet situations) taught me that being an astronaut is terrible. However, space hair washing seems much less unpleasant than space pooping.

Haha! I love that. I am from NC. This speech pattern is a recent development for my mom so I’ve very scientifically concluded that it is age related.

I moved to VA last year and the ridiculous abundance of vanity plates was one of the first things I noticed! My favorite one so far: “TO BLAVE.”

“White Castles” is my favorite part. Adding an s to random words is just the best speech quirk. I recently spent a weekend with my mother and grandma in which they both talked about how they needed to go to “Targets” and buy some “swifters” (Swiffers. As if the regular name isn’t silly enough). Of course this is the same grandma that pronounces the word “vinegar” in such a terrible and inappropriate way, that I live in fear of her blurting it out in public.

Thanks! That is also my hope.

At least now I know that if he develops an affinity for hot cheetos and an intense hatred for drinking ketchup I will need to step up my parenting game (file under things the baby books don’t tell you).

Me too. When he started punching the pillow and calling it “bitch,” I had to fight the urge to throw my computer in the trash and set it on fire.

I am going to have a baby soon…probably in August. I really should not be watching videos like this.

This is a true fact. I have lived in Texas and I have lived in England, and between the two, Texas was a lot more like a foreign country.

The giant-ass graduation picture is much less weird than the one my grandmother has in her living room featuring my uncle in full marching band regalia and 70s hair. It is so large you could live inside it. The lesson here: old people have odd decorating tastes.

Ha! I promise I was joking about the reply buttons! Don’t cart me off to the old folks home yet! I blame my reply mis-fire on log in issues/being easliy distracted.

ahhh rats…that was supposed to be a reply to petunia_pennywise. Definitely an old lady in training. How do these reply buttons work? I need to do more maths exercises on my DS to sharpen up my old lady brains.

I’m totally an old lady in training b/c I have this on my Ravelry queue.

Since I’m not willing to entertain the possibility that there are two Ghost: The Musicals, I feel compelled to inform you that this has apparently been playing in London for a while because I have seen the ads (adverts) in the Underground (sub-terranian lorry system).

 +4Posted on Aug 8th, 2011 | re: This Is How You Run (30 comments)

As a teenager, I went to a running camp where they taped us running around a track and then made us watch it while they critiqued our form. I have a weird, prancey run. My first thought was “OH SHIT! Someone found my running video from 15 years ago and put it online!”

Cool story, me: I used to work with CPAs. I do not like to think about tax season because it gives me scary flashbacks. Also…you would be shocked at the number of people who will amble into a CPA firm with giant box full of tax info and act like it ain’t no thang that they haven’t filed in 4 years.

Every time I think of self potato, I laugh until tears come out of my eyes. I am doing it right now. I can type and laugh and eventually cry at the same time. Don’t be jealous.

I like to base opinions about a group of people on the actions of one person too!
