Funny things!!

I spent much of my day with the Bacaks today. It was lovely. But, today Emma said two things that I thought were great.

1. She "rememberized" the songs she plays on the piano.

Awesome huh?

2. The phrase "In this stage of life" came out of her mouth.

I wanted to laugh so hard that I could have cried. Instead, I tried very hard to NOT laugh, and made a pathetic attempt at following the rest of the conversation, because, let's face it, in my head I was out of breath from laughing so hard.

I love that everyday with the Bacak children is an interesting day. So great!!

That would be nice...

I think I need a pensieve. I don't know how you feel about Harry Potter, but for the moment that is irrelevant. I have read and enjoyed all seven of the books.

I think maybe the coolest thing mentioned in any of the books is a pensieve. A pensieve is a place to store thoughts and memories. There are times when I have nine hundred thoughts running around my brain and I don't know what to do with all of them. If I could just pull a couple out and save them for later that would be wonderful.

Or, if something happened, and you wanted to retain the memory without forgetting the details, if you could pull it out and save it, so that you would never forget and could always "relive" it, that would be nice.

It would be nice if you could have, at your disposal a video display of your memories and thoughts. It would be wonderful. Especially when there is so much jumbled up in your thoughts you don't know what to process first, much less how to stay focused on one thing at a time....

So, if you ever stumble across one of these, get one for me!! Or if someone figures out how to do this, maybe digitally, I think I might be their biggest fan...

That's mostly it for now, except -

It is supposed to be raining right now, so where is the rain??!!

**My roommates hounded me yesterday about updating my blog. So you have them to thank for this post!!**

Car Shopping...

When I went home for the 4th, my parents told me that I need to get ready to buy a new car. So, I am looking for tips, etc.

I will most likely, unless struck my lightening, or being given another car, will buy a Honda! I love mine!! Getting a new one will be nice. But, what questions do I need to ask? Etc...I want you advice!!
