New City Ordinance

I went on a date last night and saw the play/musical "A Christmas Carol" at the Herberger Theater in downtown Phoenix. Musicals and plays make me SO happy, so I don't think I could have left that date NOT happy. It was really a good show, our seats were amazing, and I'd recommend it to anyone for a fun FHE or family activity. Anyways, there's a lot of construction around the theater and downtown in general, so as we were crossing an intersection we approached a black construction worker waiting on the other side. Once we reached him he said to my date, "Sir, I don't know if you know this, but we have a new city ordinance in place..."

At this point I'm thinking, "Crap! What did we do wrong? Were we not supposed to cross here? Everyone else was and we had the walking man light...crap."

"...that you're not allowed to bring a girl here who is so dang FINE! *turns to me* Seriously, you are beautiful!" At this point, I laughed and my eye rolls start coming out in full force. But I thought it was SO hilarious. Who says that?!

We're Running a Ghetto Operation Here

We're living in a time when most people are starting to upgrade their DVD collections to Blu-Ray. But here at the Burt household, we're holding onto ancient technology--the VCR. Ok, it's not the entire Burt family involved in this, mostly it's just...me.

We have an extensive collection of VHS tapes that I think are good to whip out from time to time--especially during Christmas time considering that every Christmas movie we own is on VHS. Well a few weeks ago while watching Babe, the VCR died. I was devastated. What was I to do? I was even more devastated when I realized we in the midst of the Christmas season.

But don't worry, instead of just buying new DVDs to replace the old tapes, I've thought of a better solution: plugging our old tiny TV/VCR player into the home theatre receiver. And voila! I can now watch my ancient, poor quality tapes again! At this point I realized how ghetto this actually is...the picture below explains all.

Can anyone name the holiday classic movie that I'm watching here?

The Fat Show

After dinner, my mom hopped up and said, "Well, gotta watch the FAT show" as she headed to the living room. Hmm, I'm sure that's not what the creators of "The Biggest Loser" were going for, but then again, maybe it was....
