if you believe in a thing called momentum

I don't like to brag, but... oh who am I trying to kid? Of course I like to brag! And if I do say so myself, today was one for the record books.

It was a running around day, strategically planned before we are hit with wind, snow and plummeting temperatures tomorrow. We weren't able to make it to the Offspring Formerly Known as Resident's old high school last week for the awards ceremony, at which she apparently received something, so I dropped in to pick it up today.

And walked out with an armful of awards. A scholarship (which we already knew about, in fact have already spent), an Honours award, an Honours pin, the grade 12 Film Studies award, and a Film Studies plaque. I almost had to borrow a wheelbarrow.

The OFKAR has successfully pulled off the triple crown of high school Film Studies awards, receiving the top award each year.

I wonder who she'll get to play me in her first film?

It better be someone awesome who is known for their ability to get all their Christmas shopping done in two days. Cause yeah, I had a pretty banner day myself.

Not bad for somebody who didn't realize until yesterday that Christmas was coming.

Wow, you have raised a film studies whiz!

It'll be so nice to have your shopping done well before everyone else, eh?

so it was a good day!

Woo for shopping being done, first of all! Second, way to go for your girl genius! I wonder who will play the young, lovely American girl her mother was friends with over the Internet? Hmmm, let's ponder this.

I spoke too soon, Wandering Coyote, I forgot the cat.
I only have to buy for a couple of people now, so it's pretty simple.

It was an ace day, Kelly!

I'm gonna go with Zooey Deschanel or maybe Ellen Page, Justrun. They might be able to do justice to the role. Your thoughts?

What do you mean, Christmas is coming? You mean it's December already?

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Just barely, Mr Anchovy. You've got oodles of time.

Isn't it great when our kids astonish us with their accomplishments? As I've said before, "why when I was that age I was allowed to use the phone..."

Kids today... Sheesh, you must be so proud. I can't wait for the day when the RO is on stage collecting her first Oscar and we can all say we knew her mother when.

Good times, my dear. Good times.

Congratulations to Eva!

Sean

I was cetainly infinitely less accomplished at that age, Sean. Mind you that was before the talkies had been invented...
We do have awesome offspring though, don't we?
