Living with Boom Boom and Depeche Mode has been a blast the last few weeks. Boom Boom and I get up and meet in the kitchen she makes me a parfait while I pack her lunch. Then we carpool to work together and talk about all of the fun that we are going to have that night. Typically these plans involve us stopping at the liquor store to pick up a bottle of champagne (or something like champagne with a more appealing price tag). Then we proceed to get hammered in front of her son, Brown, and end up watching some wonderful show like Jerseylicious, Real Housewives of New Jersey, or Tough Love Couples. All the shows that Depeche Mode would rather slit his wrists than watch. But like the loving husband (and roommate) he is, he watches the shows with us.
Sometimes we all line up on the couch with our Apple products and ignore each other. Instead we send each other Facebook and Twitter messages. We are freaking awesome. The other night we all shared our itunes libraries together. Yay, friends!
In return they cash in on my Mexican heritage and make me do the dishes, clean the bathrooms, and take care of all of the lawn work.
The other day, Boom Boom was telling us about how much she loved Diner Dash. Like an idiot I downloaded it my iPhone and now it’s like crack for me. The only issue is that now all of these things seem to be creeping into other aspects of my life.
Here’s a little message I wrote to Boom Boom at work today.
- Catherinette: I forgot to tell you about my dream last night. I was playing Diner Dash and singing “All the Right Moves.” That basically went on for about 45 minutes. The problem is that I only know the one line, “all the right moves in all the right places.” Know what’s even better than that? I was making up my own lyrics, the real lyrics are actually, “All the right moves and all the right faces.” Thank you so much.
- Boom Boom: HAHAH! That’s so awesome. Although my influence is sounding kinda lame….a computer game and One Republic? You sound like your living with a 45 y.o. shut-in w/ nonstop VH1 on in the background….I’ll have to up the ante on my influence power. PS- I had no idea that the lyrics weren’t “all the right moves in all the right places.” I think I’ll still sing it wrong b/c it sounds better that way.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to watch Idol with Boom Boom so she’ll watch Glee with me.
