TheCount's 23rd Birthday

We had a lovely, lovely day on Saturday :) We woke up around 9ish and I fixed him Cinnamon pancakes and eggs. Then we went up to the movie theatre (we are old, we like to go to the movies early on Saturday's, cheap tickets and no people!). We went to see Role Model. It was funny. There was only about 10 other people in the theatre and they were all old, except the people behind us which were parents who brought their daughter (in college) and son (in high school). It was awkward because I'm sure their kids wanted to laugh at some stuff but didn't want their parent's looking at them sideways, lol. Shoot, I was laughing so hard at some parts but I didn't want all the old people in the theatre to go complain about the loud black girl so I was doing my silent laugh, which only made it worse. I had my head on TheCount's shoulder and I was shaking so hard from laughing. We had fun, it will probably be funnier when we rent it and watch it with our friends. It's always more fun when you have people that crack additional jokes as the movie is on. **Sidestory: We were walking up to the movie theatre ticket box and I saw this older lady walking up from the other direction. I like to do this thing where I race people to a certain point, even though they have no idea we are competing. So I said to TheCount, "hurry up, let's race her, she's trying to beat us." He shook his head (as usual) and was like "baby that woman aint thinking about you." So I'm looking at her and racing and she looks at me, figures out what I'm doing and breaks into a full on run! I am not kidding she had to be at least 60, lol. I was in disbelief and started cracking up. When I got to the ticket counter (behind her) she turned around and mugged on me! TheCount was like, well dag, bet you won't race old folks no more!**
So after the movies we went to the mall to get our niece and nephew a birthday present. Limited Too was having a buy 1 get 1 free sale! I was having wayyyy too much fun in there :) After we procured their gifts we went to lunch at That's Amore in Columbia. Service was so-so, I think it was because they were having a banquet on the other side so all the attention went to them. I ordered this pasta with shrimp, scallops, clams, mussels, and calamari. It was good but after a while the smell started getting to me so I had to stop. I haven't been able to make myself eat any of the leftovers. It didn't help that TheCount was making faces at me every time I picked up the baby octopus, yeahhhhhhh I just made myself sick all over again, lol.
After lunch we drove all the way from Columbia to Waldorf for the kids' birthday "party". A party it was not! But it was fun. It can't be considered a party if the only people their are your siblings and aunt and uncle, in my opinion. But we played with the kids, watched Muppets From Space (y'all TheCount keeps making me watch that movie and each time he says he's never seen it before, I think he's embarrassed. I've seen that thing at LEAST 4 times with him, lol). After we watched the movie we decided to walk the kids' dog since that poor nappy headed thing hasn't been cared for properly in a long time. The kids all decided they should come with us so TheCount and I bundled up 4 kiddies and went walking around the neighborhood. It was a lot of fun. The kids have been asking to come up to the apartment (there have even been requests to come live with us, another story, another day). So we're trying to find some time for them but it's hard because they live an hour away and every time their mom says she is going to do something, she doesn't. After we left their "party" TheCount's friends took us to Outback ( I need to do some post's about them too). That was fun too, and tasty! After dinner we went and watched 88 minutes. Ughhhh I am not a good thriller movie watcher. I try to kill everybody because I get so frustrated when people act stupid. I kept hollering "just shoot her, come on, kill her, nobody will tell." Anger management was recommended for me, lol.
On Sunday we went to church and chilled at my parent's house. My mom decided she wanted to get on facebook, lol, so I helped her get her page up because my dad and my sister couldn't do it.
Me: Mommy what's your password?
Mom: Retired
Me: That's what I keep doing.........Mommy, spell retired.
Me: No ma'am, that would be incorrect (I typed it in it still didn't work)
Mom: Move, y'all are stupid, let me do it. (she types it and gets in)
Me: Write down what you typed
Me: Are you dyslexic? That's retried, as in try again, you spelled that soooo wrong!
We were laughing her out, and she had to go tell my dad that the reason he couldn't log on to any of their accounts lately is because she spelled the password wrong, lol.
Great times with family. It doesn't get any better than that! How was your weekend?

I had to take notes during this post:

1. Please tell me you didn't really race that lady.
2. Smells making you sick. The thoughts of smells making you sick. One day you couldn't get outta bed and made it to work late. Funny, that happened to me when I was....
3. Happy Birthday Count!!!

Oh for real? Y'all gonna do me like that? It couldn't be that I couldn't stand the smell of the food becuase it was scallops, clams, mussels, shrimp, and freaking octopus!!?? LOL

And the fact that I couldn't get out of bed is because I'm lazy :)

Next time we all go out to eat down in Waldorf (which is very often) I'll send you a message so you can come too! Now I'm tyring to picture all the people I saw at outback to see if one of them was you, lol.

Oh, and I most definately did race that lady, until she started running! I wasn't expecting her to join the race. I do it ALL the time. I love secret races because most of the time I win and it embarasses TheCount.

I can't believe you raced that poor woman lolol Sounds like you had a really nice weekend. It was my sisters bday on saturday also. She always wants money instead of actual gifts! lol That way she can spend it on something she really wants. My weekend was super busy (engagement party sat and Maxwell concert sunday)So you know I took a day off today lol
