LET ME CLARIFY THIS

tomorrow i am giving a talk in church on fatherhood. yikes.

today i asked brandon how much he'd pay me to recite our favorite scene from the ghost and mr. chicken instead of actually saying something spiritual.  he didn't think it was such a good idea. 

but i gotta tell you, the longer it takes me to think of something insightful, the more tempted i become...

  1. Hey! I have to speak as well. Luckily I spoke last year on Father's Day (yeah), so I will just be using the same talk. Good luck!

  2. So bummed that I'm going to miss your talk! Good luck! And this whole Style-athon thing? holy crap that's huge! I can't wait to see what you come up with, especially since slings are all the rage right now, and I just can't wait until i have a baby to wear one.

    YES!!!! The Ghost and Mr Chicken is the most underrated movie EVER. The Farrelly Brothers movie Kingpin has a homage to it, although it's buried in the midst of a lot of VERY not-family-friendly stuff! You can never go wrong letting Don Knotts be your guide. Good luck!

  6. This is totally unrelated to your post, I was reading an older one and saw your stroller with the bassinet thingy on it...Which stroller do you have? (and baby is facing you too) Do you like it?
    Thank you!

  8. (sorry about the removal: I needed to insert a clarification!)

    I cannnnnot believe you dug up this splendid bit from TG&MC, the scariest movie in the whole wide world when I was about 9 years old. Although, in that same era, I'm also pretty sure I saw Night of the Living Dead in a theater when I was spending the night with my friend. ANYWAY I just laughed my way through that clip. If only you would do a reprise of it at church! I guarantee the father's in the audience would get a giant charge out of this homage (pronounce that the French way, it's better).

  12. We're seriously tempted to come down to the City to watch/support, but we've already got plans to go up and meet with my dad. Any other day. Good luck with your talk! We're talking next week - Isa about her conversion story and me on the sealing power. (We just got sealed a month ago. Yay!)

    Thank you for knowing about the ghost and mr. chicken. Sometimes I tell my husband about movies like that, that I watched as a kid and he thinks I'm INSANE.

  17. Don Knotts is one of my all-time favorite comedians!! Hope your fatherhood speech went awesomely. Of course, you got chosen for this speech since you live with The HolbsDaddy! :-)
