I just skype-texted with my sister and got super-nostalgic for my younger days. Why? Because when I asked her what she was going to do today, she said,
“[11:24:23 AM] Beth: volunteering at special olympics to get absences erased in my 8 am hps and then sing tonight. besides that, nothing and a lot more sleep.”
Not fair. She’s just now getting out of bed and I’ve been up since 7 because my husband (curse him) woke me up to say, “Don’t you want to go to the gym?” Why, yes, dear. I fell asleep on the bed with all my clothes on. I’m still asleep now. Of course, I’m filled with a burning desire to go and work out.
So, yes, I did get up and go to the gym. The only redeeming event of the workout was that this, possibly my all-time favorite movie, was on:
If you haven’t seen this movie, I demand that you go watch it immediately. It’s all about the possible combination of two private schools into a coeducational facility, and it is excellent. Three factual statements to prove this:
1) Our dog at my parents’ house is actually named after this movie – her name is Tinka, just like one of the main characters.
2) Smalls from Sandlot as a teenager – so crazy to see someone like that “grown up.”
3) “Up your ziggy with a wa-wa brush.” Probably the most famous quote from this movie and it just makes me laugh when I hear it.
Okay, maybe those are not the most convincing facts, but it’s a funny, cute movie, perfect for a rainy day like today, and it’s cool to see so many celebrities in their teenage days –
Okay, that got really rambly, really quickly. I started out with complaints about not having free time, and apparently, based on the celeb photo stalking I’ve done in the past 20 minutes, I have pl-e-nt-y of time.
Go watch this movie and have a happy Saturday! 🙂
