I didn’t intend on blogging this week because WifeGeeding and I planned on taking the kids to the beach for the first time in their lives and my focus was going to be on family and a little R and R. But sometimes life throws you a curveball, like two family members suddenly getting ill. Too bad the condo we booked doesn’t give refunds.
The kids were feeling well enough to play in their first basketball game for the summer league they asked us to sign them up for. BoyGeeding scored the first points and got the first rebound of the entire season. DaughterGeeding didn’t score but she did play point guard and got all the assists. In this league, both boys and girls play together. DaughterGeeding was the only girl on her team and I like that she doesn’t even notice it. The kids on their teams get to choose their team names. BoyGeeding plays on the Golden Tornados. I’m not sure why they are golden, I guess it’s some kind of compromise, but I couldn’t help but think of the term “golden showers”, which would make for an interesting team name for five and six-year-olds. DaughterGeeding plays for the Ghostbusters.
A little while back I told y’all I watched Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade with the kids. On Friday, I was flipping channels and put Jaws on, more than half the movie was already over. It caught the kids’ attention quickly, and less than a minute into the movie DaughterGeeding asked if I was watching an Indiana Jones movie. Even though she was wrong, I thought that was quite perceptive of her to see the artistic style in two different Steven Spielberg movies and make the connection.
Even though I dislike my name, I’m glad I don’t have a name like Steven because I’m sure people spell it with “ph” all the time. I’m also glad my name isn’t Stephanie.
My favorite Jawsit was in Dallas fact is that the first time the movie was screen in front of an audience. That theater is now a Kohl’s.
At last week’s 2018 Republican Party of Texas Convention, a Muslim couple decided to set up a “Ask A Muslim Anything” booth. They said 90% of their interactions were nice and of course got some interesting questions.
Mr. Roger’s 90-year-old widow was on Fallon last week. She looks to be in fantastic health. She shared a cute story on how her husband maintained the weight of 143 pounds because he loved the number – each digit stood for a word of the same length, spelling out ‘I love you.’
Beyoncé and Jay-Z renting out the Louvre in Paris for a music video is quite impressive, as well as the album cover pic of them in front of the Mona Lisa.
