It's Official. Peter Pan plays LF for the Red Sox.

Can I tell you how much I'm loving the fact I've not seen one normal picture of Manny since Spring Training started? Poor Julian has no idea he's about to get accosted while he limbers up. At least that's what I'm guessing he's doing; for all I know he's practicing some move from his upcoming "Yoga with Yo Yo" video series.

I'm fairly certain the only person who would look more uncomfortable receiving a bouquet of flowers than Tito would be me. Look at him; poor guy looks like he doesn't know whether to laugh or cry, and is probably trying to figure out who to actually give them to. Mrs. Tito? Or Papelbon? Because you KNOW that lunatic asked for 'em as soon as Francona got back to the dugout.

After getting home from Easter services at church, I spent the better part of the day playing "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Shrek 3" with Rakes on the PS2. I figure the Easter Bunny decided to try and divert Rakes' attention from Star Wars, which I'm all for. Except I let him watch the movie this afternoon during quiet time, and he spent tonight running around the house yelling "Dou've dotta det yourself a dirl, mate!" All the while jumping from chair to chair and swinging an imaginary sword.

Throw in Trot getting up every hour, on the hour last night and Ciera thinking her room is a landfill, and it all adds up to one exciting day. Ang is sleep deprived and I'm more twitchy than Otis on the Andy Griffith Show when Barney shut down the little old ladies still.

At least they clean up nice.

Just another day in the life of the RSD.

normal and Manny in a sentence just doesn't go together.

I'm telling ya, Manny has the right idea about life.

Ted D said...

I tend to agree with you, Tex.

Manny is smarter than most give him credit for.

Beth said...

I love that picture of the flower-laden Tito! I'd love to know what he's thinking!!

Ted D said...

Beth, probably "What the *&#@ am I supposed to do with THIS?"

Tex said...

didn't Tito's wife go to japan? Im sure he'll pass them on to her

Ted D said...

I think she did, Tex.

And I'm pretty sure she'll get them.

I'm dealing with SG Puburty right now.

How do I get myself in these situatuions?

Trot's Hat said...

"Yago with Yo-Yoyo"
I so want a copy!
Great family picture, too!

Tex said...

cos you're a dad

Ted D said...

Bridget, your copy is on the way.

And thanks for the compliment. They take after thier Mum.

And yeah, Tex. I sort of signed up for this, right?

Happy Easter, Ted. =)

Bickley said...

That's a precious picture of your family, Ted. I wish I'd thought of that. I was blessed to have my oldest back at church playing guitar with me this morning.

Tree Newt said...

Dude, Rakes IS Captain Jack! It's all coming together now: the sword fascination, the Rakesese, the love for adventure. Dude, he's a PIRATE!

I trust you and the Red Sox fam had a nice enjoyable Easter.

I'll have my happi on 6 am eastern tomorrow.

Krystle [RSO] said...

Ted, my room is THE landfill, or atleast it feels like it. I've been so busy with school and everything else that I have ZERO time to clean it. It's on my agenda very soon though because I feel so inclosed in.

Is it sad to feel excited about getting up at 5:30AM to get ready for school really early just to watch the Red Sox?

Ted D said...

Was running late this morning, so sorry I didn't respond back earlier.

Thanks, Dawn. And I hope your Easter was great as well.

Bickley, that's great your son was back with you for Easter. We try to take one every year at Easter; it's the only time I don't wear jeans or shorts to church.

Mattie, it was quite hilarious. I walked in the door 15 minutes ago and he's already asked me to play it with him 43 times.

Stephen, it was. And I hope yours was as well. There are only two things I'll get up willingly at 6 a.m. Sox games, and if the wife is feeling romantic. ;)

Not crazy at all Krystle. Your a Sox fan.
