That uber pooey feeling

You know that jelly fish feeling you have inside after you've been waking up at 4:30 a.m to meet deadlines and make arrangements and get organized and make preparations and be of assistance to?

My daughter, who has a way with words, would call it that uber pooey feeling.

I'm not talking about that uber pooey feeling you get when you haven't had a printer since December and when you buy a new one it doesn't work anyway because your home computer crashed and only runs in safe mode and your office computer freezes every 42minutes (so DON'T FORGET TO SAVE or you'll end up under the gun having to retype chapters four and five of your son's autobiography for him before noon.)

I'm talking about that uber pooey feeling you get after you retype chapters four and five of your sons autobiography and find out the print center on campus is running a big project so you have to run to the copy center and pay $25 and wait 25 minutes to have it printed out.

I hate that feeling!

I think the universe is punishing me for rooting for Adam on American Idol. You must admit he's insanely talented, creative, original and versatile. I bet he's flexible too. But after last night I'm officially in the Kris camp.

I actually can't watch either one of them sing. They both creep me out. Adam's eyes say, LOOK AWAY little girl, before I bite your stinky neck. And Kris's mouth says, It's not easy being green!

Was that rude?

Not trying to be rude, peeps. Just sayin'. Bless his little kermit mouth. My mouth gets all bent out of shape like that when I blog so I have total compassion.

Before I go I just want to say that while I was retyping chapters four and five of my son's autobiography I learned things I never knew about his hopes and dreams.

Do you mind if I share? (Go grab yourself a tissue, because I laughed my mascara off.)

I have high expectations for high school. I’m going to be in AP classes with a 4.3 GPA. But the biggest thing I want to accomplish in high school is to be the Valevictorian.

I want to go to a Division I college. Any college between Duke and North Carolina, maybe Stanford, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oregon, UCLA, USC, Georgetown, Notre Dame or NYU. One of those colleges would be cool.

I know! I know, It will cost a lot to get into one of these colleges, but I think I can pull it off. I don't know yet what I want to major in yet. Right now I am leaning towards something that has to do with acting. For plan B I might want to get an education in plumbing. I always found that fascinating.


If over/underachieving makes him an (oxy)moron then I'd have to say that's my boy!

woohoo! first

Amanda said...

everyone else is watching the American Idol finale :P

Amanda said...

and yes, Sandi...I did not read the blog post I just checked to see if I was first then posted...now I'll go read.

The Wixom Zoo said...

Hahahaha! Your son cracks me up. American Idol...yes, Amanda, I'm gonna push 'play' in about 20 minutes so I can fast forward through the commercials. No giving away the ending!!! lol!

Amanda said...

At least he is thinking about college and what he wants...and if Duke or Carolina don't work out, he has a very realistic tradeskill to make an honest living. Bless his little plumber's heart :)

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

I'm an ADAM fan. Sorry, even if he tries to seduce me with his eyes... he had already seduced me with his voice... as long as I close my eyes. I love his voice!

Sorry about the uber pooey feeling...

Lara said...

I HATE the uber pooey feeling.

But I LOVE your son's ambition. Plumbing is very cool. And they make a ton of money actually. :)

Rockstar said...

Crash remember when you promised me $100 for getting a 4.0 GPA... how much would you have given for a 4.3? What a stud. I shared the last two blogs with my boys to inspire them. Glad to see you out of captivity.

Sandi said...

I always wanted to be the valvictorian too. I am so glad your boy has high expectations for his future! I hope he can narrow down those college choices. I am personally pulling for Kansas, because that is where my hub is from and it could definitely use some of his coolness factor.
I am totally on the same page as you are about Adam and Kris- LOL at the Kermit mouth...he is ADORABLE, but what is up with that? I think they are both insanely talented but I think it's pretty clear that Adam is going to be the one to have to release that HORRIBLE song that Kara wrote for his first single...hahahahahahahaha

April said...

OH Crash! I knew there was a reason we were soul sisters! I told someone the other day in my best Kermit voice that I couldn't watch Kris sing because he sang out of the side of his mouth.

I am loving Adam....he was Fyero in WICKED! I have voted for him since day one! He may be bi...but I don't care. If he can make that crappy song of Cara's sound decent, he gets my vote!

I hope your son gets that 4.3 GPA he's looking for! What a cutie! And he likes victorian things too....go figure!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

ha ha ha ha ha Sandi, I think Kermit can pull off that mountains and hurricanes song better. Those words weren't meant to come out of Adam's mouth. ha ha

Rockstar, did I ever give you that $100? See that was a good move on my part even if I didn't follow through. Look at you now! Didn't you get like a 4.0 in the masters program at BYU? I probably owe you like a thousand dollars for that.

Shelle, I totally feel you, girl! He's astounding.

Wixom don't tell me who wins! I'm not listening. lalalalalalalalala

And Amanda congrats on being 1st!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

April, ha ha ha ha ha ha You're so right. I didn't know about his part in Wicked. He would be da bomb on Broadway!

Mariko said...

Ummmmmm. You were typing your son's autobiography?

Don't tell me. I didn't hear a thing.

Kritta22 said...

LOL That is toooooo funny!

I want a 4.3 GPA too!

And Mariko...HA hahaha HA!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Mariko, OH YES, I DID. After he typed chapters four and five and then the computer shut down with no recovery and he had a heart attack and a nervous breakdown and a kiniption fit at 6:45 a.m. because it was due by noon. YOU BETCHA I RE-typed it. ;) and I'll say that to Mr. M's face.

SO said...

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Georgie don't you know it's only 5:30 in Hawaii!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Georgie! How was you Hiatus? I missed you! Are you all refreshed?

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Just don't let him wear a plumber's wardrobe. Just say no to crack, ya know what I mean.

I totally type my kids papers for them. I am an enabler of their dependance that way. Good job mom.

I hate when school crisis cost so much money and personally I wonder if technology is of the devil.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Thanks for checking out the slide show. I am happy to nudge you when you need it. And I totally get that it is easier to just follow people's nudges.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

At least you guys know I didn't write the autobiography for him cuz ain't no way I would have picked him to be a plumber.

Actor never crossed my mind either.

And I ain't heard o' half a' dem collages.

And heck, I didn't even know a 4.3 GPA was possible.

Although I do love the victorian period so I would love him to be the valevictorian!

OMGOSH! Guess what my verifier says: hoter

I am way hoter than YOU guys!

(nothing personal, I DO live in Hawaii, afterall).

T said...

Best of luck to the boy becoming Valevictorian (at least he'd be the BEST victorian in his graduating class) and on getting into Duke (etc...) to pursue a career in acting like a plumber (but hopefully with a belt.

WV says lytho - apparently it knew I was going to be blatantly honest - it wanted me to Lie Though...

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

What a kid! I love the list of colleges and then majoring in acting with a back-up in plumbing. Way to go Little Crash Dummy! lol

Your kids sound just like you (funny and sweet).

Sorry for the computer drama. I'll get those stars back in alignment for you right away.

wv - ringsur Why yes a ring sur would be nice!

Martha said...

If Z goes to Notre Dame he'll be in my bro's ward like Manti Teo. But, discourage him because it's way too cold there. It's called "Lake Effect" snow.

I personally want him to go to BYUH and play on both the bball and tennis teams. Hello.... then we can watch all the matches and games.

Dude my printer is working, at least black ink anyway. You should've asked me.

I've been printing out a million Eagle Scout project flyers tonight. I hope T can come and help on Sat. I'm worried there will be a thousand kids at the tennis clinic and we won't know what to do with them all. I'm just so happy that the end is only a few days a way.

Skeet said...

YAHOOOOOOO, I got my very own category on your blog, which means, I'm always on top. Hehehe. So Kris won, huh! I'm at work, so I didn't even get to see the finale. :( I think you're adorable autobiographical son would make a great American Idol. Can he sing?

wesley's mom (sue) said...

You know, a valevictorian with that kind of GPA should be able to get a scholarship to any one of those fine division colleges he wants.

I LOVE that he has always found plumbing facinating.

I am LoW said...

So like, I started watching AI but stopped when they had the top 12 (?). And I hear who the winner is and I didn't even remember him.

What I can't wait for- and what I never get bored with (unlike AI) is SO You Think You Can Dance- SOOOOOO glad it starts tonight!! wahooo!!

Uber Pooey feelings stink. :-/

Melanie J said...

You're not hotter in Hawaii. You're balmier there.

Or in your case, barmier.

LY, Crash.

Homer and Queen said...

So at least your {oxy} moron has goals! That is more than my moron did.(I can call him that cause he will never read this!) And I see that Adam lost, I don't watch the show but I am happy for you. Plumbing at NYU...cool.

Barbaloot said...

K-I think it's AWESOME that your kids have autobiographies like that! Is it a project you have them do, or did something else get them started.

Seriously, great idea. If I had kids, I'm sit them down right now and make them get started:)

Emily Anne Leyland ( Art-n-Sewl) said...

Hahahaha your boys just kill me. I love them. I wish my Connor could hang with your boys for some time. He needs cute boys like yours to hang around with. He got shot 5 times with a bb gun, punched in the face 3 times then pushed off his bike by the brat boys that roam our neighborhood like a pack of wild wolves. I could have killed some kids that day.:(
Anyway- your'e doing a great job with your kids mama.

Mary said...

I just can't believe that anyone beat Adam. I mean, he kicked trash on every performance (minus his creepy tongue sticking out thing) and Chris was...okay but his mouth was only made worse by his mustache. Ew.

Is it possible to get a 4.3 GPA?

The Crash Test Dummy said...

I'll save my IA finale review for my post later today. ;)

And my son's autobiographical update. hee hee

Emily, I would LOVE it if our kids could be buds. I would smacking those kids in your neighborhood around too if I were you. Isn't it amazing how Kung FU Panda comes out in you where you're a mom.

My verifier says trimical. I thinks that my favorite word now. This morning I cut my hub's hair. Now he looks quite trimical.

Youngblood4ever said...

Way to reach for the stars there! I am thinking plumbing is probably the way to go. I mean, if you have read Kristina's post for today- it's probably going to be uber hard for him to get into acting since he is just so darn good looking.

Have a fab day!

Jami said...

Dang that's funny! You know...if your high school has ROP he might be able to learn plumbing AND take those AP courses, so that he can go to the Division I college of his dreams!

Uber poopie I may need to use that phrase!

Emily said...

Get him started with the plumbers pants.. now that I think of it my 3yo may turn out to be a plumber

Congratulations on 101 followers but now it is uneven again..only 99 left to go!

val of the south said...

"Adam's eyes say, LOOK AWAY little girl, before I bite your stinky neck. And Kris's mouth says, It's not easy being green!"

You totally summed them both up perfectly!!

I've been waiting for your AI review - I did mine today...can't wait to see your take on things!

Don't leave me hanging...

Tiffany said...

Do they have a plumbing degree at Stanford, I am sure they do at NYU. :)
