Laptalk

"Psssst!! Hey... Susan's laptop."

"Yes, Mark's laptop, what's up?"

"Do you think Mark and Susan are going to do their regular movie night tonight?"

"I don't know. Honestly, why do they even bother. I mean, you know what it is like."

"Tell me about it. They put in their weekly Netflix DVD, sit down on the couch and open US up."

"Right! The movie starts, they watch for a few moments and then from there, they are barely even paying attention."

"Do they realize that they could watch a movie much faster if they would just watch it? Seriously! They stop and rewind at least a handful of times in every movie because they realize they have missed something integral to the plot line."

"What does Mark do with you while he is supposedly watching the movie?"

"It varies really. Sometimes he is working, sometimes he is browsing information on his dream cars, sometimes he is playing solitaire, but the best is when he is watching You Tube videos. How does he think he can reasonably watch two videos at one time? What does Susan do with you?"

"Well, she is usually about all things blogging. Reading blogs, commenting on blogs, writing posts and editing pictures for future posts. I am convinced she really only listens to the movie."

"It is ridiculous isn't it? They need help. Some kind of intervention or something."

"I'm flattered by all the attention I get from Susan, but I really do think she might be addicted to using me."

"I wish there was something more we could do for them. It is just sad to see them this way!"

"Well, we could crash or something drastic."

"Bite your space bar!"

"You're right. Let them keep pretending to have their special movie night. We can always..."

"Shhh! Here they come. Sleep mode now!"

Too cute! Love the narrative!

Chris said...

That was perfect!
And nice shot too.
Movie night for us involves Netflix, and falling asleep, very quickly. It takes several nights to finish a movie.

Angela said...

cute!! Love the picture

Cecily R said...

Ha! That was GREAT!!!

"Bite your space bar" had me laughing out loud!!

Angela at mommy bytes said...

I love the "Bite your space bar" too! Too funny. You guys actually let go of your laptops to take this shot. I did my very first PSF this week.

Lindsay said...

Too funny....and sadly, true for myself as well. Ugh.

Wendy said...

This is so my husband and I with our laptops. Glad to know that we are not the only ones.

Kristen said...

That is hysterical, and sounds just a little like our family.

Our neighbors call us the dueling laptops! :)

Love IT!!

Wendi said...

Perfect!
Exactly the way I imagained it would be.
And....it looks a lot like our house.
Love your funny little narrative!

Jessica said...

You are too funny! That is a litle too familiar to me and the lap top. Thank God my husband leaves his computer at work!
Funny narrative!

Maggie May said...

That was funny!

Tiaras & Tantrums said...

oh.so.HIL-AR-IOUS!!

Jen E said...

that was adorably funny! haha - if I had a laptop that would totally be us, too. Unfortunately with a desktop (pretty as it is) I couldn't even pretend to be watching the movie.

MamaGeek said...

Bite your space bar? GENIUS I say!

photomommy said...

That is hilarious! Probably the best PSF I've seen today! (Including mine! LOL)

Mandy said...

You are hilarious!

angie said...

Absolutely hilarious. And creative. Love it.

Midwest Mom said...

That's better than what *our* laptops would say... "Sleep mode" is something inescapable for me on movie night!! My hubby has to keep me talking so I don't fall asleep on his shoulder. (zzzzzzzzzzzz)

Thanks for the fun post. I'm glad I found your blog. :)

Candy said...

HHAAAAA hahahahhh haahhahaaa!!

Carol said...

So funny.

Bite your space bar!!

Though I am slightly envious because we share a laptop!

Munchkins and Music said...

You are funny! So funny!

utmomof5 said...

Fantsitic -- we have the same movie night palnned at our house tonight too :)

Amanda @ notsoextraordinary said...

hahahaha! that's so funny! seriously though, it's one of my pet peeves to watch a movie WITH someone else and multitask (which could also include sleeping!) but if i'm by myself i'm all about the multitasking.

ps i don't know if i've ever talked to you about this, but what kind of camera do you use?

Breanne said...

This is too funny! I do that too.

Motherhood for Dummies said...

ha ha ha! oh that is funny. I know how that goes :)

beth said...

This is too perfect! We are every bit as pathetic!

I blog at one end of the couch and at the other end of the couch my husband checks my blog to see pictures of our kids.

Baby Tunnel Exodus said...

Hannah Noel said...

Octamom said...

This is absolutely delightful!!! So clever--and terrifyingly biographical around here----YIKES!!!!

Thanks for the good wishes at my place--we are safe, house is secured, 3/8 is feeling all photojournal-y! We are praying for the folks in the Galveston/Houston area who seem to be taking the brunt of it--

AVT Coach said...

Very funny post! Just last night..while blogging...I kept saying.."honey, want to watch a movie?.. he would say okay then he didn't look for the movie and I kept blogging. "just a minute, I'm almost done with this post".. okay.."are you lonely in there?"..By the time I finished it was 10 pm and we proceeded to watch IKE on the weather channel!

Crazy Mama said...

I so needed that giggle!

Leslie said...

haha! Love that! Very cute story. ;)

Mitch_Patty said...

Susan! I'm dying over here!! As I am typing this comment, Mitch and I are sitting on our bed together, trying to watch football (instead of movie) and just like you and Mark, we both have our individual laptops on our laps - how sad are we?!?!?! We have got to get the guys together sometime!!!

lisaschaos said...

Hubs and I are the same way. I cannot just sit and watch tv, I have to be doing something else too, used to be cross-stitch but now it's blogging. :) I'm watching Psych right now. :)
