Okay, I know this video is from 2013, but it was taken in the high desert around Joshua Tree — which is the land of my birth — so I had to use it.
My eldest son was born 33 years ago, yesterday. When he was little, I told him that the annual Perseid meteor shower was a light show just for his birthday. Of course, it was a total lie, but it was a lot of fun and pretty damned convenient, so don’t judge me.
Now I just have to stop hyperventilating over the fact that I have a child who is 33 years old. Breathe…
This is our daily open thread — Don’t forget to look up.
My eldest turns 33 in about two weeks. Being pregnant in Virginia in August really sucked. Happy Birthday to Z’s eldest.
We are all just star dust.
We are golden.
One of the better movies of our time! Sometimes we just need silliness.
It was on the list of things the Usual Suspects should see so I showed it…. trouble is AndytheTurtle (9yo) his education is advancing faster than a 9yo'[s perhaps should. 🙂
Did they find a telephone booth a crazy thing?
They didn’t know what it was 🙂
It wasn’t a blue wooden box with Police on the top.
“Why I’m just so thrilled to be here in Iowa, sampling the local…umm…what is this?”
I can only assume that the presidency is a terrible danger to your health – starting with this – eating other people’s junk food all over the country…. maybe there has to be a vomitarium in the back of the campaign bus, else it’s like Morgan Sperlock’s 30 days of McDonalds… for 16 months though.
And if you are going to all 50 states, you is eating some nasty shite.
The Fair: your go to source for ANYTHING deep fried on a stick.
GOP presidential hopeful admits the Bible isn’t his go-to policy book. I’m sure we have some nice parting gifts for him.
A GOPer with common sense, now that’s a rarity!
It sounds like Governor Kasich did at least read beyond the Old Testament.
Its ok Zooey. I have just reached the point where the eldest drives.
And my three got each other up on Weds night to lie on the trampoline in the back and watch the Persieds… 🙂 I thought that was completely cool 🙂
Watching the Perseid from the comfort of a trampoline – utterly grand!
When I was of driving age my father made me an offer.
I could drive and pay for everything myself
I could learn flying and he would cover all expenses*
* I had an older brother with a penchant for stealing motorcycles, bicycles and cars along with anything else that wasn’t bolted down in our house and other peoples houses.
He figured this was the easiest way to keep me out of his footsteps.
Now I hang around airports and waste all of my money on airplanes.
What a great dad he must have been.
Our roles are slowly reversing.
It’s reaching a stage in life where I tend to look after him more than he looks out for me.
That happens. It’s hard.
Not news: My 33-year old son and some of his friends went to a bachelor party this weekend. News: A four-day bachelor party. WTF?: In Montreal, Canada.
My, how times have changed!
Soon* my longest will be driving.
* as soon as he retakes drivers’ ed without the a**hole gym teacher who refused to make any allowances for his disability and stated to his case manager “these children should not drive”. My son has been driving our tractor from the age of 8.
You show ’em OIMFson!
Come to Floriduh.
It’s a suburb of New York for those that didn’t know.
I’ll show you more people that can’t drive a car unless the horn blows and they are showing you the middle finger.
Far be it for me to criticize the relationship others have with their children but, “longest”? 😆
Perhaps he’s tall.
I am working here today 😦 …. got a good old fashioned college style ‘essay crisis’ going on …. but I have treated myself to sushi and a Bridgeport IPA and am listening to a little Unplugged on the Youtubes.
You’ll ace it, TtT!
Huckabible would concur
