    Kinda like the friendly wave when you thank another car you can pass, or wave at the driver who stops at the zebra crossing. Learned to do that in the UK where it's customary to lift your hand in gratitude when passing each other on a tiny road.

    Belgians however, are still learning. Though more commonly we use the indicators of the car to signal a sign of gratitude. Trucks started it.

    We had a wonderful and tiring weekend babysitting the twins while their parents went off to celebrate their anniversary and sleep for a full uninterrupted 8 hours. Mr. SR's legs are sore from carrying the 23 pounds up and down the stairs and repeating with the other one. I can't manage it and have trouble lifting them out of the crib but Thing 1 stands up and lifts his little arms for me so that helps. Thing 2 makes his What? face, so my back is a bit tender also. We have mastered "pattycake pattycake" and "put him in the pan" but we have an issue with "roll him over roll him over." We'll work on that later. Thing 2 enjoys randomly waving "bye bye" and Thing 1 is practicing to be a drummer. Such fun. They have their first birthday in a couple of weeks also.
    So cute!!!

    Yeah I was just thinking that - is my memory failing or were they obnoxious to John in those eps?

Never know with the littles, it always amazes me how they can turn every day ordinary into magic. A tiny tike in my neighborhood blew me a kiss this morning when I was out walking. Totally made my day.
    Oooh! That would have made my day too!

    My memory must be failing me as well, because I recall that too. Grrr. Definitely one of the more annoying parts of those episodes.

    Yep, we've got a lot of that out here too. We adapted pretty easily though.

    Sparky is on screen. Therefore, it is canon. Elizabeth is still out there. And John WILL bring her home.

    Good morning, Sparkies! Happy Screw the Angst Wednesday!

    Trip to America went well; it was hot and muggy, and we didn't get everything done we wanted to do, but we got some big things ticked off the list. And today it's raining.

    Well I found a thread where people were complaining about Daniel and Rodney (and Zelenka) being rude to John about John's intelligence.

    I'm in the South too, but we took it further in the town I went to high school in. When you were cruising the strip and town square- because that's what was done on the weekends- you had to tap your brake lights twice when you passed a car of your friends.

    Errands can take all the fun out of little road trips. Hope you managed to sneak in a little fun with the work. Goodness know all Marvel fans need something fun to lift our spirits this week.
    Thanks to Copter for my signature art!

    Heh, oh just getting off island is fun. And it's always fun trolling the aisles at Costco for samples.

    Ugh, Marvel shenanigans.

    We lost Tony for this?!? Made. Of. FAIL!
