You know you watch too much Firefly when...  
Your almost eight year-old son calls the video game he's playing a piece of go-seh.

I told him not to swear.  Not even in Mandarin. (Then I went into the bathroom and giggled.)


Also?  Nolan never called Southwestern Bell to get phone service hooked up in the new house.  He said we might not have phones (thus no internet) for TWO weeks.  Hello?  HELLO?  Sometimes I wonder about the man.

And writing a second exchange fic is the most fun EVER in the world.  There's absolutely no pressure, and the prompt is easy peasy, man.  Plus, I'm doing it WITH seegrim, which I hope is not against the rules.  Plus I get to write Narcissa.  I heart Narcissa a BUNCH.  I think I might channel her a little sometimes.  :)

Look!  April Fool's Day, and not a joke in sight.

You're writing a second fic on top of everything else? You're my idol! Lol.

But I'm not doing it by myself, so it's FUN!

That's hilarious!

We're a regular stand up comedy act, around here.

Ohhh. I think it is amazing that your kid swears in Mandarin.

::clears throat::

I mean, he should never do it again, of course.... of course....

Yes, I try not to encourage the Chinese swearing.

*cackles madly*

That is about the coolest thing ever. Your little boys swears in Mandarin! LOL! Mine just say 'Frak' a lot - but that's all my doing - I don't let them watch Battlestar Galactica (and not because it's a bad show - but because they are too noisy and then I can't hear... hrm... bad parent anyone? *ducks in shame*)

But yes... TWO WEEKS?? That SUCKS! Perhaps you can steal from the neighbours? You think? And yes... I am about to go peek in your document. I'm SOOO excited to read what you guys have so far. Have I told you lately that I love being a mod?? ALSO - have I told you lately that you rock?? You do! ;)
Carrie Leigh: Distracted by the sparklecarrie_leigh on April 1st, 2008 04:19 pm (UTC)
Ethan actually reprimanded me for saying "frick," Dr. Reid's swear of choice on SCRUBS. Ah, well. I'm obviously in no position to judge anyone else as a parent. :)

I love that particular fic. It's been a ton of fun.

....I wonder who it's for? *giggles*

If it makes you feel any better, we were watching Independence Day, and there was a part where Major Mitchell is talking (near the ending where the aliens attack Area 51) and I appended, "I'll be in my bunk."

Nobody got it.

What?! Do they have to lay wire?
Carrie Leigh: River Fireflycarrie_leigh on April 1st, 2008 04:26 pm (UTC)
I got it. :) I love Jayne.

And yes, they do have to lay the wire. It's a new housing addition, and we're the last one to do on that side of the street. Pththt.

Well... That 'splains it then. They've probably only got one or two trenching units in your area, and they've probably got a crapload of other stuff going on. (As is usually the case with utilities). He did get the power hooked up, yeah?

He did, as his company was the electrical contractor on the job. :)
Brendan: Brendan - Little Boy Piratebrendanm720 on April 1st, 2008 04:58 pm (UTC)

The electric companies around here are 21 days out -- if you're lucky.

If you're unlucky, they're 90-120 days out.

At least you can use the appliances.

TWO weeks? I'm flailing in a very bad way.

LOL! Ethan's a hoot. A chip off the old block, eh?

I'm glad you're having fun with the second fic. Thanks for being crazy supportive and sweeter than pie. I'm your number one fan. --In a non-creepy stalker not smashing your ankles with a sledgehammer kind of way.

Not a chip off my block. I swear in English. :D

You crack me up.

it's so horrible when kids pick up "innocent" swear words. last night aislynn said "oh fock" when we were watching lost and i almost died.

i went to see that movie In Bruges and colin farrel's character said the F word alot, but with his accent it sounded like fock. geez!

You're writing a second fic? Cool! I did that last time - let me see, who was that fic for? Oh yeah, you! :P And yes, it was fun.

Can't wait to read them both (or have I already read one of them? Hmmm...I know you, you'll never tell)! :D
Carrie Leigh: evil laughcarrie_leigh on April 2nd, 2008 02:35 pm (UTC)
HAVE you read my fic?


sue_bridehead on April 2nd, 2008 02:49 pm (UTC)
I don't think so...but then, I haven't had time to read them all yet. And you are especially sneaky. ;)
Carrie Leigh: Extremely stubborn and suspicioucarrie_leigh on April 2nd, 2008 02:50 pm (UTC)
And stubborn and suspicious.

It's a fantasic combination.
