Avery loves the Olympics

Avery was getting really excited about the Olympics this evening. She straightened out her arms and legs and made hyperventilating sounds. It was quite amusing.

Also, the video was taken with our digi cam, not the video cam, so the resolution isn't that great... but here ya go!

I'm with him...

In staying with RG's latest post, I've decided to blow off some steam and make a list as well. These are in no particular order.

10 Things that Irritate Me

1. The fact that David Letterman insists on wearing white socks with dark suits and black shoes. Doesn't the man have a stylist? Shouldn't he be one of the LAST people to be committing this crime against fashion?

2. People who think they are more important than they really are. Seriously, get over yourself.

3. People who don't return their carts to the "cart corral" at supermarkets, and decide instead to leave the carts next to their (read: my) car. An extra 20 steps isn't going to kill you.

4. That my burrito from taco bell never looks like the burrito in the commercials. Instead, my burrito most closely resembles a wadded up sock at the bottom of a laundry hamper with taco sauce and cheese oozing out the sides and soaking through the wrapper.

5. People thinking that "taking the bar" is synonymous with "passing the bar". I already feel like I failed, but your added pressure of "Oh, I'm sure you passed" makes me feel like a SUPER LOSER when I don't pass.

6. Predictive text on the IPhone. Slang is IMPOSSIBLE.

7. My incurable addiction to Sonic Raspberry Sweet Tea.

8. Trying to find a parking meter downtown within 10 blocks of the courthouse.

9. People in the "right turn lane only" lane by our house that insist on trying to go straight in that lane. I guess they assume that because the paint is wearing off that the rule no longer applies.

10. Whistling
