Stuck in the Movie "Dumb and Dumber" or "Dropping them off at the Zoo"

Wow. Yesterday sort of felt for a while like I was trapped in a Dumb and Dumber movie. After we had overpriced unexciting not that great Mexican food we went on a ride through Duluth and Superior, checking things out and listening to conversations between Dominyk and Jimmy. Dominyk was doing his "D*** hybrid" thing as well as making disparaging remarks about politicians in our state who had caused this shut down that is closing rest areas and halting construction projects. He also got stuck on a particular word.... ok, I'll tell you, but not because I'm proud of him. He got the word dildo in his head because he thought the peninsula we were driving around looked like one. Why it looked like a dildo as opposed to the authentic body part, I'll never know, but he must have said the word 200 times in less than 30 minutes.

When we got back to the room the clock in the room said 8:10 when it was actually 8:40 so Dominyk explained to Jimmy that it was because we were in different time zones.

The conversations the two of them were having were pretty difficult to follow at times... but Jimmy is convinced that he has a good sense of humor because his IQ is getting higher, so maybe it is because I'm not bright enough to follow his train of thought.

We love these guys -- I'm sure some people who read my blog think that I'm being mean to my kids -- but it is all in good natured fun and the kids don't mind me sharing stuff "if it makes you laugh."

I have not seen Dominyk this hyper in a long time. Fortunately Bart took them both for a walk this morning so I could quickly take care of some emails. I'm also downloading the new Mac OS -- - Lion as we speak.... Nothing more exciting to me than new software. I know, I know, I'm a geek.

I'm trying to get it up so I can look at it before I drop them off at the zoo and head to my 11:00 meeting.

And no, I'm not going to leave them at the zoo....

Gosh if I had read blogs yesterday I would have been able to say hello to you in Duluth! I spent the day there with my friends, hanging out in Canal Park and going out on the Vista Queen for a couple hours. What a hot, fabulous, sunny day! Did your kids enjoy the zoo?
If you are still there and enjoy asian food, try going to Thai KraThong in Canal park... the salad rolls are delicious :)
