Both Friday and Saturday nights we stayed up past 11 PM – Oh my gosh! Friday night Toby and I watched "Jurassic Park 1 and 2". We had never watched those movies before. I’m not sure I want to ever see them again, but they were exciting – if you like dinosaurs. It is not easy going to sleep after being chased by Raptors and T-Rex. Saturday night Jesse had rented "August Rush." I had seen this movie at the theater back in December, but it was a sweet movie – so I stayed up with Jes to watch it. Tonight Jan (Yon) is coming over to watch movies with us. I have a good chick-flick that I think I will make he and Toby suffer through – ha! My mean streak has been showing lately.
Saturday was absolutely the best day we have had this spring. It was warm and the wind was not blowing. We went to a birthday party for Mashayla, one of my art students, and her brother. It was a big gathering of folks. They had one of those big castle/balloon things for the little kids to jump in – it was quite the hit of the day. We played volleyball – you know how I love that. While standing around visiting, a girlfriend of mine bent down to pick something up off of the ground. For some reason, I reached out and put my hand on her head – so she could not straighten back up. I only did it for a second – it was just a quick reaction – something my brothers did to me while growing up. I’m tellin’ ya; the mean streak was showing. I offered to get into the castle/balloon thing and wrestle if she wanted retribution, but she did not take me up on it. I did notice a twinkle in her eye that said she really wanted to wrestle.
Something else funny happened this weekend. I have been arguing on a blogsite over the El Dorado fiasco. I had left another rebuttal and gone back to see if anyone had argued with me. They had, but the funny thing was that I had commented under Jesse’s blog name, Skybag. I guess she had been on my computer and signed in. I did not even notice until after I used her name in a blog fight. I did go to her and confess my error – after I quit snickering.
