Live Real. Eat Real.

Apple, Meet Tree

It might surprise you to learn that my kids are a bunch of, well, smart asses.

Then again…maybe not.

This week’s Spin Cycle is “Apple/Tree.”  I could carry on about how my kids are just like me (especially in the smart assery department) all damn day, but it’s all been pretty well documented here.  And here.  And here.  (And several other places that I don’t have time to hunt down.)

They’re all tremendous geeks, as well; something else they come by honestly.  I’m a huge fan George Takei and his internet memes and follow him on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.  So when he posted this the other day, I just had to share it on my own Facebook wall:

Yesterday's Tribble

It didn’t take long for Oldest Son to comment.

“And now it looks as though they’re here to stay…until Scotty beams them over to the Klingon vessel.”

He and Darling Daughter are flying up to Ohio in June to watch their baby brother receive his high school diploma and so we can celebrate Oldest Son’s 30th birthday.  If I give them enough beer food, I may convince them to let me make a video of a family sing-a-long of Yellow Submarine while Darling Daughter accompanies us on the ukelele (trust me, it’s funnier than it sounds – have I mentioned that they’re all enormous hams, too?).

Our license plate reads “WEIRDOS”  for a reason, you know.

My children seems to have gotten their father’s dry wit and smart assery. Never from me :-)

You guys are all smart-asses AND you eat well?

I’m in:).

Oh man! I sure hope you ply them with enough beer or food (or both!) to convince them to let you record them singing Yellow Submarine! I love that you all are not only so close, but crazy! My kind of family. ;)

I truly hope my boys will continue the silliness once they are out of the house–that’s memories right there.

I don’t know what this says about me, but I don’t think there’s anything weird about any of you! I still need to get Jude more interested in all this Star Trek. Though he is now a full-fledged Whovian. I even bought him a toy sonic screwdriver for Christmas. He wanted to go as Doctor Who for Halloween last year, but doesn’t think anybody will know who he is.

You will be linked very shortly!

Aaaaand … this is why we get along so well! : )
