Shiver Me Timbers!

Thirteen Silly Things that H and I Do:

1. Perform interpretive dances to the opening theme song of The West Wing.

2. When we see a car with extensive American flag decoration, yell, "SOMEONE LOVES AMERICA!"

3. Sing along to 80s songs when driving to high school reunions.

4. Drink 4 margaritas and then call the other one at work. (Ok, that is not so much a "thing we do" as it is a thing H just did tonight. So you don't think H gets home and guzzles margaritas, you should know that he gets home from work several hours before I do. Although he may have guzzled them. I really don't know.)

5. Watch Grey's Anatomy together.

6. Play MarioKart. We haven't done that in a long time though.

7. We also went through a several week period where we played Dr. Mario on original Nintendo every night.

8. Write really boring lists. Oh wait, that is just me.

9. Take dumb pictures of each other. (See Green Giant below for proof. But there are many, many more. And many are much lamer.)

10. Play with the sports equipment while shopping at SuperTarget.

11. Talk like pirates.

12. Do Conan's string dance.

13. Invent horrible, horrible dance moves and then get drunk brave and perform them at weddings.

Love the string dance.

My daughter wants to be a pirate when she grows up, so she talks like one all the time... which would be cute and funny if she were, like, ummm... five. She'll be 17 next month. Not sure where we'll find a pirate college, but I haven't yet given up.

MysteriousLady said...

Your in love with each other, no doubt. LOL! Congrats!

Carmen said...

I think you need to film the interpretive dancing, and post the video for all to enjoy. :)

Lisa said...

You guys have such fun together! I'm jealous! H and I don't do stuff like that (I think we're old and stuff.) But I so would if I had a fun spouse!
(Mine is fun ... but not goofy fun, you know?)

Thanks for stopping by my TT!

Stephanie said...

LOL, you guys have too much fun!!

Everytime we get home, it is a race to the answering machine. If there are no messages then, " No one loves us today!"

My TT is up.

Darla said...

LOL! We always did/do interpretive dances to the theme songs of Buffy and Get a Life. I thought we were the only ones. :)

jonniker said...

We do interpretive dances in the car, and if one of us learns a new move, we're all, "Don't be jealous! Can you do it? Can you? I DIDN'T THINK SO."

I'm so happy to know that this is what other people do, too. Hilarious.

I love the hollering at excessively decorated cars - that is HILarious. Thanks for visiting me today.

See, that's what I want--someone with whom to share dorky past-times and inside jokes. My last boyfriend had a lot of good qualities, and we got along remarkably well, but it always bothered me that he wasn't nearly as amused by little things as I was.

I'm glad you two have that. Good for you.

Galoot said...

Brilliant! I feel like I'm living in my recent past, vicariously, through you and H! Preppygirl and I did a lot of those kinds of things in our "courting years". Thanks for the laughs!
