Mr. Blanket Man, and other epic things today.

Vacation in California Log, November 7:

After watching several (read... um.... way more than that.) Henry Thomas clips (Moby Dick, Valmont, Cloak & Dagger, etc...) and requesting a slew of things from the library, I finally went to bed (the word bed meaning the couch in the family room).

Woke up. In the AM :]

Took more pictures, said bye to various relatives, and ate something that maybe resembled a breakfast.

Chatted with Amaranthine, and got ready to head to Orange County.

Had to jumpstart the borrowed car, turn around, and re-start the car before actually driving.

Drove for a long time.

Got to meet the lovely, lovely Amaranthine (which was EPIC!). She had sweetly brought cookies and a bookmark and a crocheted hair net.


Lame and unprepared being I was, all I could offer was a small remnant of the famous chocolate treats that have appeared several times on this blog. They were (possibly) on the old side, and (definitely) sort of crumbly from being in a warm car all day.


Oh well. We had a blast anyway :D Thanks for the awesomeness Amaranthine!

(And it's Am-are-ANTH-theen, for the record. I heard it from the very person!)

After that, we went and gorged ourselves on In-N-Out Burger.


And then we went to Downtown Disney to meet up with uncle & fam and cousins.

And ate more.

I swear I could not breathe.


We then walked around Downtown Disney for a bit.

It's now 7 or so in the evening. Dark. And cold.

I dressed for a hot California day.

Not walking around in the cold of after-sundown.

I didn't even bring my ever-present jacket.


So I wore my mom's jacket. But then she got cold, so dad gave her his jacket.

He had given her a quilt/blanket thing from the back of the car during our dinner, so he swapped his jacket for the blanket.

And, I kid you not.......

.......Walked around Downtown Disney completely swaddled in a blue-flowered quilt.

It was the funniest thing I've ever seen in my life.

Get this, my dad's a pretty down-to-earth, dry humor kind of guy. He's not goofy like that in public.

You know, until today.

*giggles like a maniac*

It got worse, too.

As we were leaving, there was a large, temporarily empty section of street.

And Dad flung the blanket behind his head like a cape and ran around like Superman.

Oh. My. Gosh.

Observe, if ye doth not believeth me:

As my mom, me, and all nearby relatives were dying of laughter, I looked at mom and said, "You know, you're married to him."


I love my dad.

He's so silly.

(He actually did it about three times, once in front of a band playing music, second time right by the gate, and then one more time for the camera as you saw.)


Anyway, it was a seriously adventurous day, epic in all ways, and completely stuffed to the brim in food.

How are YOU guys doing??

Oh hahahahaheeheehee. I have to say, some of the things you post are just hysterical!

And I'm jealous of Amaranthine. I want to meet you! -_- Ah well.

My my, you wonder why I love this blog. :-)

Amaranthine said...

It's a friendship bracelet not a bookmark. :P

You just knot the ends around your wrist.

And the chocolate remnant was good! Thanks :)

I really hope you come back again! I had so much fun! I hope the rest of your family enjoyed it as well, and did not get too hungry waiting for us to stop yammering.

Wow, that clip was epic XD Now, if only he did an eyebrow thing. :|
