I Read A Lot of Internets

The other night, the boyfriend and I watched two of the worst movies ever made: feardotcom and The Tuxedo. Last night we made up for it by watching two very kick-ass flicks: Shallow Grave and Secretary. Though I had resolved to go to sleep at a decent hour so that I could wake up early and putz, the movies sucked me in. Then I had trouble sleeping, but not because my mind was racing, as is usually the case. The boyfriend fell asleep and placed me in some kind of death grip. I don't mind a little cuddling but at some point it's time to separate and go fetal. Usually this isn't an issue. However, last night, the boyfriend had his arm around me and at several points during the night his legs, too. Whenever I tried to squirm my way out he would constrict and say, “No.” It was very bizarre, although humorous at the same time. When I would ask him to let me go he would just sort of grunt at me. Eventually I gave up but his added body heat made for a very sweaty Kelly. Something similar happened once before when I was about 7 months pregnant. I awoke to find that the boyfriend was…sleepwrestling me…for lack of a better word. It was nothing violent but I'm sure it looked hysterical. You can imagine the boyfriend's confusion when I said to him the next morning, “Yeah, so…what's up with the nocturnal headlocks?”\

What really sucked is that the baby decided to wake up super early today. I tried to get him to go back to sleep with me but he was not having it. I even let him vegetate to Noggin but he wanted me to watch with him and let me know this by pulling on my hair or prying my eyelids open if I happened to drift off. I managed to rouse myself for Sesame Street and was pleased to see that they still use the old animated clips. \
My dad has off of work on Thursdays and Fridays so today he stopped by and we went to S.W. Randall to buy a birthday present from him to the baby. S.W. Randall is this sort of upscale toy store (cheap website, though: http://www.earthstores.com/swr2666/ ) and the way you can tell it's upscale is that they spell toys “Toyes” and gifts “Giftes,” which, I'm pretty sure isn't proper Olde Englishe e e. There also isn't a drop of Fisher-Price in the place, although I will admit I'm a bit addicted to the Little People stuff. I'm trying to go back there next week sometime because they have two kick ass board games that I want to buy for the boyfriend and I: Mancala and Go (I recently bought a book about Go. It makes my head hurt just looking at it.) It was pretty funny to see the baby's eyes light up and to watch him interact with some other kids his age. One boy there, who was two and a half and even tinier than my kid (which is saying a lot), was very nice and talked and played with the baby. It was really neat. Then a little girl about 2 and 1/2 stopped in and my kid started working the charm, dazzling her with toy trains and toy shopping carts. My kid has some serious game.\
Anyway, my dad and I decided on a little starter set for those Brio wooden train sets. I'm pretty excited about it. Those train sets are so awesome and the baby played with it for seriously an hour.\
Right now, he's napping, I'm nursing a sleep-deprivation headache and am about to do a little survey type thingy that has been all the rage on my friends list today.\

is probably the goofiest girl on the planet. I want to tie her up and keep her in the corner of my room so that she can just say funny stuff whenever I need her to. Also, quit living in Troy Hill! I don't see yinz enough!
