My Recent Ways of Annoying The Family

1. Disney trivia. I pity anyone who enters the park with me. As mentioned before, I love knowing the under layers of how the business came about and why things are the way they are. Disney is filled with all sorts of yummy secrets and I want to know them all! I may have even bored a few people standing in line with me with my knowledge. I try very hard not to point stuff out mid-ride, though. I will, however, point out a Hidden Mickey to just about anyone. Lots of stares, people. Lots of stares.



2. We switched to Direct TV recently and have 3 months of free movie channels (which we never subscribe to). I've been recording movies left and right, but haven't watched any. It's hard for me to sit still long enough to do so, but the prospect of so many options at my fingertips has proven to be too tempting. Plus, I'm rather proud of myself for figuring out how to record something. Not long ago, pushing those 2 buttons seemed very tricky for me.



3. One of our Plano boys is in a new movie with some pretty respectable names. Bradley Cooper and Robert Diniro, for example. His name is Johnny Whitworth and we "went together" in the 9th grade. For at least a week. OK, maybe 3 days. But, I am relentlessly reminding Blake and Carter. Blake is basically indifferent and Carter refuses to believe I could be "that cool."

Oh, sweet Carter. I am that cool and so much more.

And, the movie looks good! (He's the guy who offers Bradley Cooper the meds.)





I'm working diligently on other ways to annoy the fam......and Blake more than anyone.....stay tuned!

Tell Blake and Carter that I remember when Johnny was obsessed with you. We were in 10th and he was in 9th grade. He would always try to sit with us at lunch and we wouldn't let him. He also used to beg me to bring him a picture of you all the time.....so funny! Don't worry, I relentlessly tell people those stories, too :)

Hello! Funny blog, we like it! Thank you for the link! I've been annoying my family for 6 years looking for Hidden Mickeys! We also live in San Diego... it's small world after all! Take care! ;)

"Monica could by lying." I love Carter!!

And I can just picture you standing in line boring people with Disney facts while Carter hides in shame from his dorky mom.

Wait wait... like Plano Texas??? That's where my aunt and uncle and cousins live. And I might want to secretly marry (or make out with, either one) Bradley Cooper.
