Before I forget all this stuff which I remembered this morning from the previous weekend (<--- was this even a sentence????)
We to my dad's shin-dig for Eastern Star. Had a beer and a stiff rum n coke to get me through the pleasantries. But the cool part of the evening was the fact that the entertainment that evening was the 'Hyperactive' Ohio State Alumni band. As I learned there are 3 active alumni bands. One is the 'performance' alumni band. They do the BIG alumni shows, ones that are covered on TV n whatnot. Then there is the 'active' alumni band which does the bigger conferences and stuff. Then there is the hyperactive band. They pretty much do everything: birthday parties, funerals (yeah, it actually happens), fund raisers, etc etc etc.
So the cool part was that my dad and his counterpart in the Eastern Star got to 'dot the I' while the band played "Le Régiment de Sambre et Meuse" (aka, the song they play during Script Ohio). But even better, the drum major invited people in the crowd to stand up and march along with them. So as any pure OSU alumni would do, I got up and started marching. The sweet part was because the path the drum major took, the marchers actually had to perform the 'cross over' where every one has to weave in order to not run into each other (it's part of the O if you've seen Script Ohio. So, I can officially say I've marched to Script Ohio with TBDBITL.
The next day the family went to the Zoo. It was a wonderful day. It was in the upper 40s when we got there. I only had on a short sleeve T-shirt. It felt really good. The only time I actually got 'cold' was when we ate lunch by the 'lake'. It was a bit breezy and the wind coming off the 'lake' was rather cool. But other than that, it was wonderful.
We finally got to see the lion cubs. One of them started chasing a bird which for some reason refused to leave even when the lion cub was chasing it around. Finally the dad came over and put his paw on his sons head as if to say 'Son, quit chasing that bird and looking like a dork. You're embarassing me'.
The wife got the kids a sandbox the other day, so I've bee making sand castles with lil N for the past couple of evenings. I make the castles and she crushes them. I guess that's fair.
The wife got the first part of season 1 of 'Glee' on DVD from the Marysville library. So we've been watching that. It's good fun. I like musicals.
OK, I'm done for now. I honestly just wanted to remember the Script Ohio and zoo stuff.
