Friday Fluff

You know, I had planned on posting each day this week, and then it didn’t happen. But, I promise, for the four of you who might care, next week I’ll do better.

Although, seeing that this was my first week back after two-week’s vacation, I’m just happy I survived.

I didn’t want to come back. And Sunday night I was thinking about all the excuses I could give my job to prevent me from coming in on Monday. But, I couldn’t come up with anything.

Clearly, I didn’t try hard enough. Why didn’t I think of this?

The most tragic part for me was that the kid had to go to school that day! Didn’t his hand hurt? Couldn’t his mom just let him miss that day for the pure genius of it all?

(Inner Letter: Dear little Diego, If you had been my son, I would’ve let you stay home. In fact, I also would have gotten you a treat. Sure, some might say I’m rewarding bad behavior. But, I say I’m just supporting the mind of a little boy who is going to change the world! Love, your American friend, Liz)

Now, on to some other news…

This isn’t really fluffy, but I feel it’s my job (yes, I nominated myself) to keep you informed about up and coming LDS entertainment (the good kind, not the cheesy kind (well, unless it’s really cheesy and makes me keel over in laughter)).

With that said, I bring to your attention a new movie based on this documentary about Helmuth Hübener, the LDS German teenager who defied the Nazis and was eventually beheaded.

The director who made this documentary is now making the movie, and it is starring none other then Haley “I see dead people” Joel Osment.

From what I’ve heard around the water cooler, it should be pretty good. When I hear anything more, I’ll let you know.

(And if you don’t know much about Helmuth, you should google him. What an amazing young man! I hope that I would have been that brave…)

Well, that’s all folks!

Addendum: Just when you think that the worst thing is to never marry, you read something like this, and realize it could be worse. Much, much worse.

erm... arrr nrrrrrrr.... what do you think the odds of that are in ratio to being struck by lightening or killed by a terrorist?

1.) I'm going to go to Mexico and adopt Diego. That is so cute!

2.) This is a really fantastic story but Haley Joel Osment scares me. I'm not sure how I feel about him being in the movie.

2.) Yikes! Twins! Ew!

Oh my goodness, I'm so mean, I was laughing pretty hard when I read the article about the twins!

Wendy said...

That twins thing is truly remarkable. I'm a little dumbfounded by it actually. What a strange, strange way to be reunited with your long lost family...

Liz, I just love that you find stuff like this to share. What a great way to inform and entertain your friends.
