Lukas and I once again saw the 'Honey Bucket Truck' on the way to work this morning. It Sucked.
I wrote yesterday about my brush with fame when we met Chris Bellew, lead singer from The Presidents of the United States of America. Well, that was not my only brush with fame this past week. This past Thursday I actually, for the first time since I began this blog back in January of 2008, met another dad blogger I have been interacting with online. In fact Whit from Honea Express was the very first person to leave a comment on Luke, I am your Father, and it was exciting for me to meet him. And yes, he is just as funny in person as he is on his blog.
With our son in daycare during most of our housecation, Mrs. LIAYF and I took the opportunity to do something we have rarely had the chance to do since he was born. Yeah, real funny. I know my readers and where you would go with that. No, we actually we took in a couple of movies at the theater. We saw the new Harry Potter movie which was alright, but not great, and we also saw 500 days of Summer, which we both really dug. I hadn't heard of it, and honestly my expectations were that it would be just another chick flick. But it turned out to be a smart, funny, and different sort of
love story story about love. Well worth putting in your queue. Plus, it stars that kid from Third Rock from the Sun.
Is it a bad thing to check out CD's from the local Library and rip them to your PC? Not that I would do that, of course, I was just wondering what you thought.
There is this couple in our neighborhood who we run into often. Probably 7-8 times in the past year. They have a son slightly older than Lukas and we have conversed with them for several minutes on more than one occasion. The thing is that they never remember us. Each time it is like we are meeting them for the first time. It is becoming sort of a joke between Mrs. LIAYF and I. We even know their son's name. Just the other day we ran into them again at our local farmer's market and the father looked over at me with a sort of recognition, paused a couple of moments with a puzzled look on his face and said. "Hey, don't I know you from coaching?"
"No, I don't think so" was my only reply before Mrs. LIAYF mentioned to the wife that we have run into them on a few occasions around town. I may just have to start messing with them soon.
