the coolest sidecars around make a three yr old squeal!

"If I can sit there you can sit there..."  now repeat fifty thousand times and you have the conversation Pickleboy and I had after looking at these gems sent to my inbox this morning in mommies mail.

These side cars are the neatest things I've ever seen and since I'm terrified to drive a real car I think I might get me one of these baby's.  I especially love the VW, the shark and the popcan!

fun with French

Gamerboy had homework this weekend of course. He had to make a French calendar with each of the months, draw a picture to reflect a holiday during the month and it all had to be in French.

Now my son is ten and hates art lol. He is a sports freak. He was getting frustrated and that is when I jumped in.

I found an online translator English to French and we spent two hours looking up the holidays, converting them and laughing since both our French accents were awful!

In the end tho we had fun and he got his project finished. This was the result...

I am very proud of the time and effort GB put onto this and hopefully his teacher will be pleased.

gaze into the future of new computers

Here is what was sent to my inbox this morning from a friend.  This is wild!

You will not be able to know what's ahead of you
 until you have seen 
at least 4 pictures and read the explanation of what they are; our
future is here..

Look closely and guess what they could be...

Are they pens with cameras? 

Any wild guesses? No clue yet?

Ladies and gentlemen... congratulations!
You've just looked into the future... yep that's right!

You've just seen something that will replace your PC in the near future.

Here is how it works:

In the revolution of miniature computers, scientists have made great developments with bluetooth technology...

This is the forthcoming computers you can carry within your pockets . 

This 'pen sort of instrument' produces both the monitor as well as the keyboard on any flat surfaces from where you can carry out functions you would normally do on your desktop computer. 

Can anyone say, 'Good-bye laptops!
Looks like our computers are out of date... again!!!

my washing machine got angry

Okay, so yeah I don't do laundry.  I despise washing clothes, despite knowing they need to be done.  Washing clothes ranks up there in my I don't do list with cleaning that scum that crawls beneath the toilet that looks like bits of curdled paper someone blew their nose on and forgot to throw out... ewwwwwwwww!

Thank God my husband doesn't mind chores.  He washes the clothes, and it's a good thing or we'd soon be called the naked family.  Not that Pickleboy would mind, he's three and being naked as a jail bird seems comforting and normal to him most of the time.

But today, this time I put the clothes into the washing machine.

I was sitting in the living room on my laptop, blogging of course and DH was outside doing some work when all of a sudden the washing machine got angry.  I mean seriously it got mad.  It started growling, shaking uncontrollably and my heart jumped through my throat.

I thought the washing machine was possessed and was going to come after me like you see in those cheesy comedy movies, only it was not funny at this particular time.  I immediately started screaming for my husband.  He ran inside and I pointed.

"It's mad!"  I shouted.  "It's mad!"

He burst out laughing at me and I wrinkled my brow.  This was not funny.  The damn thing was going to come after me and slice me to bits.  Like in Stephen Kings maximum overdrive I was expecting the microwave, toaster and electric knife mom bought us for Christmas to follow suit.

Woman lays slain in living room while blogging when household appliances beat her to death in a gang brawl due to neglect and wear and tear she caused them over the years...

"It's tilting."  DH said.

"It's what?"  I blinked.

"Tilting," he laughed again. 

Okay I had no idea what he was talking about, my heart still pounding and my imagination running circles around me.  He took me into the laundry room to show me.

Apparently if you have too many clothes in the bin and they move onto one side the washing machine will tilt and begin to shake uncontrollably.  Thus - get angry.

DH opened the bin and moved some of the clothes around and turned the machine back on.  Then he grinned at me.  "See all fixed!"

I stared at him.  Then I stared at the washing machine.  Then I stared back at DH.  Then I hauled off and punched him in the arm.

"What the hell did you do that for?"  He shouted.

"This is why I don't do laundry!"

twilight drive-in last weekend for shows

260th Street & Fraser Hwy, Langley  BC

Another year gone by and yes folks Twilight Drive-In, Langley's theater for the cars is hosting its last weekend coming up Nov 27th - 29th.

The last two shows to be featured at the drive-in are Men Who Stare at Goats starring George Clooney, a quirky dark comedy inspired by true events about (you guessed it) men who stare at goats lmao.  Okay well actually there is more to it than that.  Watch the preview below

The Second showing starting at around 9:00pm will be the Fourth Kind, a thriller with real documented evidence about alien abduction (something hard pressed) to get info for and often called "the fourth kind" This movie looks terrifying and seems like a good one to watch and ponder over. Watch the trailer below.

The Langley (Twilight) Drive-In is one of the few drive-ins left in the world.  It's a classic treat to take your family and friends and sit out and watch a film or two, not to mention the experience is unlike going to the movie theater.

Cost of entry is: Adults $11.50  Children ages (5-12) $7.00 with Thursdays being $25.00 car load (max 5) people.  There is a concession, no outside food is permitted on the grounds.  Make sure to get there early to claim a good spot to park and that your car radio is working.

So pass the word along, take the kids, call up your friends and head to the drive-in!!!!

killer bunnies

So I'm working on the revamp of my site when my g/f (shoelessmommy) comes over after a long day at work for some much needed sisterhood.

Pickleboy acts up.  He is whiny and cranky and has been all goddam day!  I can't stand it.  I show her the video of one of his (fifteen) trantums... okay tired, I meant tantrums (always talk and type backwards) when sleepy :P

"Is he not sleeping?"  she asks me.

"No, not really.  He's been having nightmares, lately.  Something about sharks eating him."

"Grace, too."  Shoeless pipes up.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.... they play together so I begin to wonder if maybe they are dreaming about the same stuff or saw something that scared them both.  That's when Shoeless tells me (laughing before she even begins the story)

"Grace has been dreaming about bunnies!"

WTF?  Bunnies?  "The cute and furry kind?"

Shoeless is in hysterics at this point which causes me to laugh.  You just can't help it when you are around her.

"I asked her what she was afraid of and she told me bunnies.  When I repeated it - bunnies.  The look of horror on her face.  She said - don't call them!"

I burst out laughing.  Seriously bunnies?

I ended up finding out Pickleboy wasn't afraid of sharks it was sharp-tooth he was trying to tell me from Land before the time that he was afraid was going to eat him.  Go figure.

Kids are funny sometimes!
