So I talked to my sister, Hildi on Tuesday. I video called her. Which is still a new toy to me. I like being able to see her when we talk, and I like being able to see my nieces, and I LOVE that it's free. But it's very limiting. Usually during our chats I do laundry, clean up the kitchen, make the bed, and other household chores. With the video calling I'm trapped at my computer. Time will tell if I deem it worth it. But she happened to mention that our cousin had a FaceBook page and she had friended him. I was excited because our cousin in currently at a NATO base in Norway and I haven't seen him in a year and a half. So I looked him up and friend requested him. And then I looked at his photo albums. Apparently he'd gone on a trip to Lithuania at some point and holy hell the photos were amazing. So at lunch, I mentioned it to the kids~
Me: I'm cousin Alex's friend on FaceBook now.
Lu: Well aren't you special!
Me: I am, thanks. He has the coolest photos! Of Lithuania of all places. I totally want to go there now.
Lu: You're making quite a list of future travel destinations.
Me: I know right?! I would never have thought that Lithuania was so pretty but it really is.
Lu: Well of course it is.
Sean: Lu, do you even know where Lithuania is? You know, on a map?
Lu: Of course I do.
Lu: It's over there with all those other "anias".
Sean: What other "anias"?
Me: Albania or Transylvania.
Lu: Right! And they're probably like the sister country of Pennsylvania.
Sean: Um. You do know that Transylvania is not actually a country. It's a province in Romania. Right?
Me: Um. Sure I knew that. *thinks: how the hell does he know this stuff??*
Lu: See I know.
Sean: And where are the "anias" located?
Lu: *crickets chirping*
Me: *whispering in her ear* Say Eastern Europe.
Lu: Eastern Europe.
Sean: *sighs and shakes his head* You're sad Lu, very sad.
Lu: Whatever. So why is it called Pennsylvania?
At least she's pretty!
As an update on Sean's levitation/hover craft/device, he was explaining it to his Dad later the other night and of course Hubby was asking pertinent questions and it all sounded like blah blah blah to me. Interspersed with "air intake system" and "reverse thrusters". But listening to the two of them, I got the idea that it might be a wholly possible concept. What does one where to the Nobel Prize ceremony??!
