Adding to Previous List

7. I will be happy when this zombie stuff is over. Man, zombies really freak me out. When I want to be freaked out by zombies/entertained, I will watch Shaun of the Dead. (Note to Zombies: I do not begrudge you your Zombiefest! They just freak my s***.)

Just Some Stuff

1. This is so ugly it hurts my eyes.

What I Did While Babysitting the Quartet Last Night

  1. Watched lots of coin tosses to see whose game would be played.
  2. Helped GK walk on the wood lining their landscaping, as she said "Hep me, Tooby."
  3. Tried unsuccessfully to convince GK to go inside, then watched C do it with no problem.
  4. Watched the movie "Underdog" with running commentary by GK: "Woof woof. Where woof woof? Woof woof!"
  5. Played 2 minutes of a board game with C, JP & S.
  6. Played about 10 minutes of another board game, but we never finished.
  7. Texted with Katherine.
  8. Got GK to say "Katherine" - it was more like "Kahwhen" but close enough.
  9. Watched C comfort GK when she got a little upset.
  10. Watched #9 a second time, during which he discerned that she wanted some Spaghettio's.
  11. Got JP to go to sleep! (I know, not that that's difficult.)
  12. Got S to lay down! (That is difficult!)
  13. Watched C entertain GK, and wondered why I was even there, because he was doing a much better job.
  14. Got S to go to sleep!
  15. Watched C get GK to go to sleep, then watched TV with C until right before his parents came home - it's like he could sense it.

Also in Clarksville...

  1. Spoke to a large group of students - like over 40! And no one fell asleep - though one guy did look like he was resting his eyes.
  2. Met a guy who has the same last name is me! And we're not related! That never happens.
  3. Saw lots of signs for Austin Peay State University that said, "Go Peay!" and "Peay Pride". And I giggled.
  4. Got my very own brick.

  5. two deer running across the road right in front of my Jeep!
  6. in a rural neighborhood I saw a mysterious ring of lights on the ground behind a house, like it was a helicopter pad, or for a UFO!
