This Post Is Brought To You By The Letter "U"...

Ren over at The Land of Ren assigned me the letter U in this super-fun blogging meme. The deal is where you simply (or not so simply if you got the letter U!! - Kidding!) list your favourite things that begin with that letter.

If you would like a letter just leave me a comment and I will try to figure out how to randomly assign you one aside from having Mason pick one ...which in turn could come up with some crazy spaceman name or something, you know how 5 year olds are.
So without further ado, here are my favourite words that begin with U (hey I'm a rhymer!)....

Uncle Rico:
Who doesn't love Uncle Rico? That pesty uncle bugs the pants off Napoleon Dynamite (ew nasty mental image over here!). I mean who doesn't love a man who throws a steak at a nerd on a bike or says things like "Back in '82, I used to be able to throw a pigskin a quarter mile." or "How much you wanna make a bet I can throw a football over them mountains?... Yeah... Coach woulda put me in fourth quarter, we would've been state champions. No doubt. No doubt in my mind." or even "Kip, I reckon... you know a lot about... cyberspace? You ever come across anything... like time travel?". Uncle Rico is my hero.

Ugg Boots:
They are leaky as all heck and no match for a Canadian Winter, but damn they look cute and are comfy as all heck. Love them.

Okay, So I don't really like UFO's all that much, in fact I find them a little frightening and people who believe in them religiously a little annoying....

but they do remind me of one thing....

U Can't Touch This:
Okay this was like my all-time favourite song in grade 6 (maybe 7?)....and I can still kick ass on Singstar with this song.

Can't live without 'em. How can you not love utensils...unless your a caveman or you like to go to Medieval Times a lot.

but only if they look like this.... *

Especially comfy, cute girly ones....and these ones are okay I guess...*

The Undertaker:
He was my favourite wrestler...mostly because you just knew he was gonna kick someone's ass...and I went through a phase in my life where it was my goal to meet him and hang out. I'm sure he'd love to hang out with me . I'd be all like Undertaker, is that your real name? Wanna go to Build A Bear and make some awesome stuffys or go to Claire's and shop for Hello Kitty stuffs...then we can paint our nails and make little Hello Kitty heads on them and dance around while watching 13 Going on 30 in our underwear (see above) and dance around in Tinkerbell slippers. I'm sure he'd loooove that.

The Ugly Duckling:
This story makes me wanna cry every time I read it...Srsly. It's just so sad, then so's like the bi-polar bedtime story.
Ultrasound Pictures:
I'm not an expert by any means on these things, but I definitely gotta say that mine is the coolest. My kid flashed us the peace sign...if you look reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally closely you can totally see it in this picture too.

...and then there was my second ultrasound (where I almost peed my pants on the way there only to get yelled at by a lady with a moustache for being late and for my bladder being too full) where he looked like The Great Gazoo which in turn made me hold in my tears until I got home and once I walked in the door I ran to my room and cried on my bed for hours until R. came and found me and asked me what was wrong. I was so distraught, I sobbed out "OUR BABY HAS NO ELBOWS". He tried to assure me that the baby did have elbows, to be honest I didn't believe him and I was so sure he was going to come out with little stick arms with hands on the ends. you see elbows up in there?? NOPE!
Umbrellas: (NOT!!)
I bet you all thought I was going to say I liked umbrellas...tricked you!! I actually hate umbrellas. Every umbrella I have ever owned has either a)gotten lost or b) fallen apart/poked me in the head with metal pieces/got stuck in my hair. This one time, my sister and I were taking Mason to an appointment. It started to pour ridiculous rain and I was frustrated as all heck. I pulled out the umbrella and it got all messed up so I threw it down in anger on someone's front lawn. They came to the window and banged on it and yelled at me to pick it up. I was so shocked someone was there that I started running and never looked back.
*I am not a pervert. Thank you ;)
