You know them. Everyone has them. If you don’t, I want to be best friends with you so that maybe your brilliance will rub off on me. Nate just had one the other day, and it made me feel so much better because I have these moments at least once a day. You know, this type of thing:
-“Where are my sunglasses? Seriously, where are they? I think someone stole my sunglasses!!!”
-“They’re on your head.”
Well, anyway, Nate had one and it really is fun to be there for these types of situations when you’re not the one looking stupid. We are driving along and Nate, wearing his earpiece (because it’s illegal to drive and talk on your phone here), says “Call ‘Bob’”…I can’t remember who he was trying to call and it’s not important to the story so let’s just stick with Bob. Again, “Call ‘Bob’”. “What is wrong with this stupid thing??” I look over and see that he’s really frustrated at this point. Then he says, “Oh, where’s my phone?”…Awesome.
So I have seen some pretty lame movies lately. The Lovely Bones was awful. I went with my mom since she had read the book, and wanted to see it. I was bored so off we went. I thought the actress that played Susie was darling and Stanley Tucci was terrifying but other than that, this movie was ridiculous. Apparently when we die, we go to heaven and dress up in roller skates, glitter, and neon makeup while dancing around doing nothing, accompanied by some stranger (who by the way talks ten octaves too high and made my ears want to bleed). Oh also, if you die before your first kiss…don’t worry, you can possess some gothic girl’s body, somehow look like yourself, and proceed to kiss your crush. He won’t mind. In fact, he’ll just say “Oh, hey! Susie! Weren’t you murdered? How is this happening? Whatever, let’s make out”. Oh, and I think the people who put together the music for this movie stole the music from “The More You Know” commercials.

On a final note, if you are trying to multi-task and aren’t very good at it…DO NOT BAKE! One time, I was on the phone while trying to bake cookies. I reached into the oven to pull out the cookies without an oven mitt. That’s not a good idea.
