So, KJ and I are heading into the city to see Ben Folds Five play in Central Park tonight. I know, I know, 1995 called and it wants its Friday Night Date back.
Here’s the thing… I am a HUGE Ben Folds fan. Just Ben Folds, not the Five. I don’t know the Five, I don’t love the Five. But Ben Folds’ solo stuff is really great and he’s completely whackadoodle on the piano and his live shows are very, very much fun.
But now he’s reunited with the Five and they have a new album. So, live music and it’s in Central Park and it’s a gorgeous day and my kids won’t be there, so we’re going. And yes, I’ll be wearing a scrunchie in my hair.
Here’s are a few things that made me laugh this week:
1. THIS TWEET:
(I know I link to this same site all the time, but c’mon… are you reading them?? They are SO FUNNY. I’m going to start tweeting as soon as I can be as funny as these people.)
If you ever watched Dawson’s Creek (which I’m pretty sure includes A LOT of you) or if you lived through the 90s (and I’m pretty sure this includes ALL of you), click on this and laugh.
4. And one quick Loud One quote…
After explaining that The Nibbit would get to use the family star plate that night because he had a great first day at school, we had this exchange:
LO: But Happy Dude had his first day at school, too … why doesn’t he get it?
Me: Well, he’s a little younger and doesn’t really understand what the plate means, so I don’t think he’ll be upset. Plus…
LO: HE MIGHT EAT IT!
As always, please share your own funny stories/quotes/etc. in the comments section. If we get more than 30, I’ll post a picture of me wearing my scrunchie.
