SPT-Eight is Great

Charlie: Remember how you were a bed wetter until you were eight?
Alan: Yeah?
Charlie: You actually stopped at six.
Alan: What, what? What did you do? Did you sneak into my room and– and, and, and, and– pour warm water on me while I was asleep?
Charlie: Yeah, OK. Let’s… say it was water, and let’s say I poured it. –Two and a Half Men

SPT Crazy Eight challenge continues!darts

Last weekend Match and I decided that we needed to do something different, so we went downtown to check out the nightlife. We quickly got scared off by the loud bar scene, and instead went to a small Irish pub near our house. They were playing folk music, it was quiet, and we were perhaps the youngest people there, but we had a great time. Plus I got to show off my mad dart playing skills to Match. He was surprised when I almost beat him! 🙂 If you look closely at the dart board, you can see a couple of 8s.  And yes, I’m ridiculously short.

SPT-Crazy 8’s

Band guy: Hey, you. Busy?
Cory: You’re not gonna ask me to the dance, are you?
Band guy: What if I did?
Cory: I’d say, “Pick me up at eight, but no slow dances.” –Boy Meets World

My dear friend Coast Sister told me about this cute blog her boss has, that does a Tuesday challenge to all bloggers called “SPT”, which stands for Self Portrait Tuesday. So every Tuesday you post a self portrait, but the catch is there is a theme each month, and sometimes a weekly challenge. So this month, the theme is Crazy 8s. You can learn more about it at Lelly’s website. It’s a cute idea, and it will be quite the challenge for me, because as you know, I never post my face.

Here’s this week’s SPT-Match actually helped me come up with it. We saved our champagne corks from

img_4412the few times we’ve cracked open a bottle of bubbly to celebrate. He put them together, and said, “does this count? It’s shaped like an 8.” So that’s me holding our champagne corks, and 8 is a significant number for us, because we met in 2008. Oh, and after I took the picture, he points to it, and says, “T sag, hahaha.” I won’t even get into the eighth grade humor behind that one. 😉
