*points to subject line* Still the best line Bug has ever voiced in the entire show.
Anyway, I want to talk about re-watching "Forget Me Not" on A&E but this requires some backstory... (BTW, how did we end up at the end of season 4 in CJ re-runs? What happened to seasons 2 & 3? Do they not exist in A&E's timeline?)
So, I spend at least part of every evening over at my sister Aileen's house helping her watch Luke. And we always watch Crossing Jordan when it comes on A&E at 10 while she tries to convince Luke to go to sleep (BTW, what kind of 18-month-old baby doesn't go to sleep until after 10:30?!? My lil sis is *15* and she goes to bed earlier than that!) So, Aileen almost always falls asleep before the episode is over because she has to get up pretty early. She always ends up asking me the next day how the ep ended.
Last night, after I went, "Oh yeah, this is *that* episode" for about the third time in a row, she asked me how I could possibly realize that three separate times and I explained that while I remember each of the different sub-plots, they rarely remain connected in my memories, so I remember all these things happening but I forget that they all happened in the same ep. This seemed to make sense to her.
So tonight, I was like "Oh yeah, *this* episode." And she was like, "What happens in this one?" And, proud of the fact that I actually remembered both main plotlines in this one, I started explaining the whole ep to her, figuring I was just saving myself from having to explain it all the next day.
So I start telling her about how Nigel's girlfriend's kid gets kidnapped and she's like "Nigel? The gay one?"
And I'm like, "Yeah, the gay one," and continue telling about the daughter's kidnapping.
She interrupts with, "But I thought he was gay?"
Me: "Well, I guess he's only bi."
Aileen: "Oh. So what happens after that?"
I continue to explain about how the mom set the whole thing up, as the scene is playing with the rum punch and she immediately picks up on the fact that they drugged him.
Aileen: "That bitch! I wanna kill her!"
I kinda had to laugh at that.
I explain that Nigel turns her in and she goes to jail.
Aileen: "Does the little girl get to go live with Nigel?"
Me: "No, she goes and lives with her daddy."
Aileen: "But does Nigel go live with her daddy, too?"
Me: "No... but that *would* be pretty interesting."
This is why I love my sister.
Oh, and in the scene where Nige was getting all mad at Bug for calling Woody and betraying him, Aileen was like, "They make up at the end, don't they?"
I, of course, reassure her that they do.
Miraculously, she actually stayed awake for the entire episode tonight (ironic that she stays awake the one time I explain the whole plot before she watches it, isn't it?), and at the end when Nigel is walking away with Jordan on one side and Bug on the other...
Aileen: "So Nigel goes back to being gay now?"
Me: "I guess he does."
Aileen: "Good, he doesn't look right with girls."
One of these days I *will* manage to drag her into fandom.
It worked with my little sister, why shouldn't it work with my big sis too?
Well, *I* found the whole thing pretty funny!
In other news, I made strawberry mini-muffins today.
And I have a date with Rita tomorrow. ^.^ I'm taking Zoe to her play production and I have to kill three hours, so Rita offerred up her services for entertainment. ...that came out kind of wrong-sounding didn't it? Good. :-p
Now that the important news is out of the way - I passed my driver's test today! W00t! I am now an official, legally licensed driver! Yay!
It's impressive due only to the sheer amount of things that *almost* went terribly wrong.
We left early so I could try a few 3-point-turns. Did them for a while, I did okay on some of them - but when I tried them on the spot where I had to do it for the last test I completely fucked it up every time. Looked at my watch and realized that it was time for me to be *at* my appointment to take the test. Scurried over which took 2-3 minutes because we were in *sight* of the courthouse but I had to get turned around the right way to park where I needed to be. So we get there and stand outside the courthouse for a few minutes waiting for the lady who gives the exam to materialize.
About 12:35 by my watch, she comes walking out -
Evil Bitch: "What time was your appointment?"
EB: "A little late aren't you?"
Me: "I guess I'm a couple of minutes late..."
EB: "Well, I *guess* I'll let you take your test anyway."
Me: *stares in shock at the sheer bitchiness*
EB: "Wait here for a few minutes while I go give this motorcycle test."
Me: "...Okay." *stares in shock at the bitchiness some more*
EB: "Okay, I need your permit and proof of insurance."
Me: *hands over permit* *goes to get insurance* *stares in shock at the place where the insurance is supposed
Me: *begs* "Can I have a few minutes to call my mom and see if she did something with the proof of insurance?"
EB: *gives me a dirty look* "Fine."
Me: *calls mom* "Did you move the Kia's proof of insurance?"
Mom: "No. Can you go get another one from the insurance office?" (which is like 2 blocks away)
Me: "I don't know if they'll still let me take the test as I'm supposed to be taking it *now*."
Mom: "Oh. Call me later and let me know what happens. Sorry I can't help."
Me: "Umm.." *begs*
EB: *has a heart* *gives in*
Me: *drives to insurance office* *dies at the "out to lunch" sign*
Me: *iz ded* *frantically searches car again* *finds proof of insurance tucked between visor and cd-holder-thingie-attached-to-visor, completely out of sight* *smites Bruce mentally* (he wasn't there, I went with Aileen's friend, Beth)
Me: *drives back to courthouse* *shows EB the insurance card*
EB: *feels an ounce of pity and begins the exam*
Me: *sigh of relief*
And we did the 3-point-turn in a different spot which made me *extremely* pleased. I didn't do great on it, but I only lost a few points. The only other thing I screwed up was *one* time when I was pulling out when I forgot to signal, which I realized as soon as I did it, but by then it was too late. So I passed. And even though I passed, EB still felt it necessary to point out every single flaw in my driving before telling me so. I think I actually only lost 3 or 4 points. (I think you need at least 80 out of 100 to pass.)
So, yay, I beat EB!
And my driver's license pic is not too terrible. I might not even get a new pic when I have to go back and get a new license next year when I turn 21.ETA:

. My shirt matches the background on the license, which kind of amuses me. ^.^
That is all.
...see? Not a GIP!
