I’m telling you this, because my husband thinks I’m from outer space. Tonight, while I was making dinner he was standing in the kitchen talking to me and some how the conversation got on to funny names. We made fun of a few we’ve heard, and then Greg says, "what about Dick Van Dyke"? I laughed and said, "Can you imagine if a person had such a name!" Apparently, that IS a real persons name… a famous person to top it all off.
Greg couldnt stop staring at me as if I’d grown a second head and when I finally convinced him that I didnt know who that was and that I WASNT joking, he started to ramble off a list of shows and movies that this Dick guy has been in. Still, I was clueless – believe it or not, I havent seen any of those shows or movies. I didnt grow up in front of a tv! So then Greg goes to the computer and finds a photo of this guy… still, no recognition. I truly have never heard of this Dick Van Dyke guy.
Needing to get dinner in the oven, I finished our conversation by saying, "look, I’m sure I’m not the only person on the planet whose never heard of some old dead guy!", whereupon Greg gave a strangled cry and yelled, "he’s NOT DEAD!!" and ran from the room. I guess he couldnt take any more of my ignorance 😛
Anyway, that was still fresh in my mind so I wanted to blog it. Its good for a laugh 😀
Other than that, today was my first day of school. This week I’m just attending for 4 days, 4 hours a day and then I have 2 weeks at home to do an assignment. In January I begin full time but until then it should be pretty easy. This upgrade stuff is good for me, I was really starting to feel rusty from my old job. By the time the course finishes in March I should be all up to speed and back to my usual, aggressive self 😀
Some other stuff that I’ve been up too… I’m organizing a cookie exchange for the women in my church and it should be fun – instead of it being JUST a cookie exchange, there will be a light brunch, hot cider and a demonstration of how to make a Christmas centerpiece for your holiday table. Its going to be so great! I’m also throwing Dee’s baby shower this weekend and I think that will be fun too, I have some really unique ideas for it.
I’ll try to keep more up to date with my blog 😀 Ciao!
