Diet Water

So, you know that feeling you get when you're told halfway through the day that you've got something going on in the evening, and you're surprised and a little disappointed because you had plans?
Yeah.  Yesterday I unexpectedly participated in an elementary school carnival for my fencing group.  They had requested we come because their theme was the Olympics.  I wasn't all that disappointed, actually, because I had just been planning on doing homework later that night, and it was fun.... ish.
In any case, afterward Mom, Mia, and I, decided we wanted to go out to eat at Mimi's Cafe (all the boys were gone).  If you've never been, I highly suggest it.  Not only is the atmosphere relaxing and calming, but the food is to die for!
It's our favorite place to eat, so we go there a lot.  Consequently, we recognize some of the waiters.  However, I didn't think any of the waiters would recognize us.
Until last night.
See, a little while ago, there was a forward Mia got that was absolutely hilarious.  It was a list of ways to "maintain a healthy level of insanity."  My personal favorite was to run out of a zoo screaming at the top of your lungs, "RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!! THEY'RE LOOSE!!"  Sadly, I've never been able to try it, since I'm pretty sure it's illegal.
However, there was one item on the list we try on a regular basis.  It instructs to you request, with a completely straight face, that the waiter bring you diet water.  If you've got the right kind of waiter, it's hilarious! 
Well, at Mimi's last night, we ended up having one of the waiters I recognized.  He looked at us and said, "You look familiar."
Says Mom, "We're the ones that asked for diet water."
"Oh!  Now I remember!"
Kinda pathetic, right?
It gets better.
A few minutes later, one of his fellow waiters, I guess he was helping him out, came and brought our appetizer.  He looked at us and asked, "I think I've seen you ladies before... you're the ones that ordered the diet water!"
We have a reputation!
I'm not sure whether or not this is a good thing.

Fare thee well, friend!

Hey! I know him!

So Mia and I were showing Mom the pilot episode of "Once Upon a Time" yesterday.  For those of you who don't know, I have gone a bit obsessive over it and have been looking up information on the next season like crazy.  So far the new fairy tales they're dealing with involve Sleeping Beauty, Jack and the Beanstalk, Arthurian Legends, and Mulan (technically not a fairy tale, but I think it's funded by Disney, so it works.  Hey, Jiminy Cricket isn't a fairy tale either!). 
Showing Mom pilot episode, which involves Prince Charming's war council.  You always notice more things the second time around, and this time around...  I spotted a character that isn't supposed to show up until the second season!
I spotted Sir Lancelot!
Personally, I want to know how he got on the war council, because according to my sources, he's having honor issues when you meet him.

Fare thee well, friend!

Stupid ID card...

So, one of the most annoying parts of school is having to watch videos you have no interest in.  It also doesn't help when you have to check it out from the school library.  And it especially doesn't help when you can only check DVDs out of the library with your ID card. 
I bet you can guess what happened yesterday. 
I go to check out a DVD for my World Religions class.  Now, I had had some issues with this before.  See, since everyone in the class is supposed to watch it, the first time I went to check it out all the copies were gone.  Well, the guy at the desk said that was fine, he would just show it on the school channel, but I had to get on one of the computers in the library in order to watch it.  Well, the first computer I tried wasn't working, so I switched.  The next one wouldn't let me log on.  I actually got one that did work, and it didn't have the right plug-in.  It was ridiculous!!!! 
Well, I go the next day, hoping that I can get in early enough that there will actually be a copy.  Joy!  I do!  Except, when I go to check it out, I don't have the ID!!!!!!!!

Fare thee well, friend!
