My dad, playing Animal Crossing: "Stitches says he wants to move."
Mom: "Who?"
Dad: "Stitches."
Mom: "NO! No! Say no! Talk to him five times and sent him a present!"

This amuses me not only because everyone in the house loves Stitches (Reference Picture) this much, but because it's two people in their late 50s getting so attached to a video game neighbor. ^_^

Also, completely unrelated, but omg White Collar! *cuddles* It's one of those shows you know you should have started watching from the beginning but didn't for some reason. At least I'm coming in relatively early still. And especially with Psych being so-so these days, it's nice to fall hard for a show.
If you have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm referencing this post.


So I just got home from work and asked him about it, and, like my mother thought, it apparently IS a poem. A strange poem. (I'll type it up in the format it's in and put it under a cut.) But he says he thinks he put it there just so someone would find it. I think he delights in confusing the hell out of us. ^_^

 the poem )
I have a notebook that I do my writing in. It's actually a journal, but I use it as a notebook. I've had it since 2007, and I tend to write short stories in it as well as this year's NaNo.

So as I'm flipping through it this morning to find my outline for the chapter I'm working on to check a detail, I come across a lined piece of paper that's folded and stuck inside. It's notebook paper—different from the paper that the journal uses.

Unfolding it, I realize it's my father's handwriting, and at first glance it appears to say, over and over and over again, filling the entirety of the paper, "hidden words." Upon closer inspection, however, the phrase, while taking up the majority of the paper, is not the only thing it says. Peppered throughout the "hidden words" are similar sounding phrases like "hide in words" or "had an urge" or "hymn a dirge," etc., but it's weird as hell.

I don't know how it got in there. I've never noticed it before. I rarely leave this book out in the open, though I have on occasion. I don't know if this was placed inside on purpose or what it might mean if it was. But it's really fucking weird, right?

My mother is being adorable.

My family, my sister and I in particular, are really into Animal Crossing. The game has the equivalent of four save slots, so four people can have a game. On the new one for the Wii, my sister and I have a game, our one brother has a game, and then we had an empty slot. We were thinking of using that slot for our own nefarious purposes, but before that asked if anyone else in the house wanted it.

My brother said no, my father said no...my mom was curious. She'd never played this game before so she started asking questions and eventually took the slot. Now she and my father play every day. Mostly because they're fond of fishing, but they're so cute to listen to, especially when they're hating on the neighbors. ^_^

So my mom just woke me up to ask me if I'd played yesterday and if I'd watered her turnips (this is an in game thing), which I hadn't, so she was being pouty about them being dead maybe, and then went on to whine that she couldn't get the Wii to work. I did some troubleshooting with her, but when that failed, told her that she'd just have to talk to my sister, who knows more about these things. She made the poutiest noise ever and left. I feel like I just delt with a five year old. ^_^ I should go check on them....

I was in the kitchen getting coffee, and my mother is looking through an ad while my father cleans off the table. My father picks up a sheet of bubble wrap, but not just bubble wrap; it's the kind with the really big bubbles. He starts popping them, and my mother looks up at him and says, "That's really loud. Put that six inches from your ear, and you'll go deaf." So, he starts to lift the bubble wrap toward his face and then smiles crazily and instead advances toward her very, very slowly. My mother points and him and screams, "Get away from me!" before she starts laughing.

And on another note, if someone is going to use an icon I made, especially one I just made for my own use, I really wish they'd give me credit. A lot of my icons are more than just slapping text on a picture. I do photo manips and play with levels and blending modes, and some of them take a while to do. *grumble* I don't mind people taking my icons, but still. Of course I don't want to say anything, really, because I have no desire to piss anyone off, but it bothers me.
