Christmas Tradition

For Christmas dinner we had my uncle over. Sometime during the night the conversation turned to video games and our favorites for the Xbox. We discussed Halo and Call of Duty and Guitar Hero and finally started talking about Left 4 Dead. For those of you who don't know, Left 4 Dead is a first person shooter game that follows four survivors of the zombie apocalypse. You have to shoot your way through several levels to get to a safe house.

Anyway, my uncle said that he had never played it before and I excitedly told him we had to play before he left. Mom, not saying anything up until this point looked up and said, "Maybe after Christmas dinner we can kill things."

I don't know about everyone else but I will happily make killing zombies a part of my Christmas tradition. And so that is my Quote of the Day.  

Holiday Weight Gain

Other women hate my mom because no matter how much junk food she eats she never seems to gain any weight. After getting a HUGE order of chili cheese fries at Tommy Burger, she passed a few guys waiting in line. One turned to the other and said, "I wish my wife could eat like that and look like her." The whole weight gain thing has become a big joke in the family.

Mom, dad and I went out to get donuts. (Odd how my last few stories about been about going to a donut shop) After getting a dozen donuts to share between the three of us mom made sure that she claimed all of the cream filled ones. I made a little side comment about how I couldn't believe that either of us wasn't 500 pounds because of all the junk we eat. Looking back at me, donut in hand she said, "What?? I haven't gained a single pound this holiday season! I have to catch up with the rest of America."

And so that is my Quote of the Day

Rude words

On the same trip to the donut shop we encountered several people who can't seem to drive worth a damn. It makes me wonder how these people got licenses in the first place. After a while a comment was made about bringer "the finger" out to at least let these people know they are being complete idiots. To this comment my mother proudly replied, "No rude hand gestures! *pause* Only rude words."

Makes me happy that mom at least recognizes the fact that we may not be able to hold back the swearing when dealing with these people.

And so that is my Quote of the Day


Mom, Dad and I were driving around town to find a donut shop. As we were on the way we passed several shops and stores that had recently opened that we hadn't known about. Turning around a corner mom looked out the window and cried, "I FOUND THE LIQUOR STORE!"

Now the thing you have to understand is, I live in Utah. Most other places in the country you can find a liquor store on every other block. In Utah, you are lucky if you can find one or two in the entire county. The thing that makes this even funnier is that none of us drink. O.o

And so that is my Quote of the Day

I know I haven't posted a new Quote in a long time and I do have a few I need to post but this one comes first. Unfortunately, it will be very general.

The Quote of the Day: "Thats what she said."

Over the past few months things have become a little odd. Mom has now become even better in her "thats what she said jokes" then she was previously. Nothing we say is safe anymore which makes life at home a whole lot more amusing. I truly cannot write down all of the instances the joke has been used even in the past few days. But know, that they were very funny.
