My dad started watching Sherlock a few days ago. He was finishing the season and I happened to come home from school as he was watching the last episode. When Sherlock jumped, he said “my days of being a cumberbitch are over..” and then he realized I was standing behind him and was like “…let’s not tell your mom about that, okay?”
It's a blizzard!
Luckily, I don’t have anywhere to go. (ha ha). My day is full of elevating my leg on 2 pillows and icing for 20 minutes every hour. Throw in the 20 minutes it can take me to get to the bathroom and back and that is a full day.
Best part of the blizzard? Dad closed the clinic early and got home about 20 minutes ago and fixed me Lucy before going out to snowblow.
I'm really proud of my dad today
The Priest at the Church we always go to got very ill so he was replaced by another one at the Sunday Mass, yesterday. We were listening to his sermon, when suddenly he started ranting about homosexuals and how bad it is that they can get married and be open about it (gay marriage is legal in my country). My dad stood up, interrupted him and said “NO. As a servant of God you cannot say that about your brothers, because homosexuals are also our brothers and sisters. Jesus taught us to love our brothers and sisters, and not to judge people, so don’t come here and say that. God is about tolerance and love, and so should we, and love is what a servant of God should be advocating for, not spewing hate”. The Priest was totally shocked and could not utter a word, and one second later the whole Church erupted into applause. Even the Nuns were applauding my dad. The Priest did not continue with his sermon, and ended the mass quickly. As it ended, he apologized to everyone for his comments.
My dad > everyone else
Watching The Bachelor with Dad
Dad got home about 745 this evening and watched the last hour of The Bachelor with me. Now, on his own he would never watch it and would deny any interest in the show altogether. However, with me, he takes quite an interest and provides a running commentary on the show. Most of it is hilarious.
This season’s bachelor, Sean, decided to start handing out roses when he talked to girls and not wait until the rose ceremony. This caused all kinds of ruckus in the house (which was awesome to watch). Dad totally had Sean’s back, saying, “How in the hell is he supposed to keep 26 girls straight? Of course, he should give a girl a rose as soon as he talks to her, otherwise he could forget which ones he clicked with.” He went on to say how there would still be some he would be on the fence about so there will still be a rose ceremony.
And he says he doesn’t like the show. He isn’t fooling me at all. :)
So I'm in the car with my dad...
and I have my iPod plugged in, with my One Direction playlist going. And my dad goes, “is this NSYNC?”
“No dad, it’s One Direction.”
“Oh is this those british people you’re talking about.”
“These aren’t their songs… I know these songs… IT’S A LITTLE BIT FUNNYYYY…”
And he proceeds to sing Your Song, with all the wrong words, of course…then The Way You Look Tonight comes on and he goes “Is this NSYNC again?”
So I just go “Yep. One Direction.”
Then he sings along to basically everything. And when Forever Young came on, he goes, “they sound a hell of a lot better than that other jerk.”
Finally he says, “Steph I want you to make me a copy of their CD, I like them.”
“They don’t have a CD yet dad, they were on The X Factor.”
“Fine, well burn me a copy of all these songs and when they get a CD I want a copy of that too.”
BUT IT GET’S BETTER…
We get to my grandma’s house and he goes “Oh Stephanie show me One Direction I wanna see what they look like.”
So I showed him The Way You Look Tonight and he’s like “alright… that’s your favorite isn’t it… with the curly hair” He’s got me pegged.
And then we proceeded to watch all of them, BUT I DIDN’T EVEN FORCE HIM TO. HE DID IT. WILLINGLY.
And he goes “I like them, I wanna see them. I’ll go to their concert. When are they coming here. We’ll buy tickets when they go on sale.”
And my mom goes “We’ll get front row seats.”
But then I had to tell them that we live in America and they’re from the UK and god only knows when they’ll come here.
BUT THEY SAID IT. THEY’RE BUYING ME TICKETS TO SEE 1D, FRONT ROW.
And this is why I love my parents.
(another pointless story by Stephanie)
i get my competitiveness from my dad
- Dad: ugh, that ass hole in the other room has already walked and had a bowel movement before me. every time i see him i give him the evil eye.
- Me: well...you did have 2 major surgeries in one day and he only had 1 bypass.
- Dad: doesn't matter. when i start walking, i'm going to walk circles around him and flip him the bird.
- Mom: you're really being competitive about pooping and walking?
Got a call from my dad today
- Dad: Hey are you busy tomorrow
- Me: why
- Dad: Just asking are you busy tomorrow
- Me: Yeah I have some homework to do.
- Dad: Oh that's too bad because I got two tickets to see The Rolling Stones.
- Me: FFFFFFF WHAT WAIT WHAT ARE YOU WHAT OMYGOD NO DAD IM NOT BUSY TOMORROW AT ALL, I CAN FINISH ALL MY HOMEWORK TODAY EWIGJNEWIGTWE$POIR(#@JRIMGK AAAAAAAHHHHH.
- Dad: That's what I thought. I'll see you tomorrow.
I wanted to discuss Damon vs Stefan with my dad, but I knew he hated talking about my fandoms and all things fictional, so I decided to ask him about in it in a general way.
I asked him “If a said person tells another person (regarding a 3rd party) that “I will always love the third party, but she/he isn’t supposed to be this way, I don’t want him/her to be like this”, what does it mean?”
He didn’t even pause before he said “The person doesn’t really love the third party.”
There you go. My dad has just said without a heartbeat that Stefan doesn’t really love Elena. If there is a BUT involved, it is not unconditional true love.
