*jaw drops*


(a2zmom: you might want to keep an eye on your youngest. This is RIGHT up his alley, ahaha.)

*okay, that is totally freaking cool, and I have a crush on these high school boys. Lock me up, because I'm too bad to be free.

And someone please bring me some pain killers and muscle relaxers. I moved a HALF TON (literally!) of compost and manure today and I am enfeebled.

HOL-EE FRAK. I would tewtally do that slide!

How was the bath? Did you lock yourself up with a glass of wine and let Calgon take you awaaaaaaaaay?

I was too tired for a bath! I took a loooooooong shower and collapsed on my bed and watch Food Network. :D I just sent the mister off to get some sushi for our din, then it's drinky drinky time!

(And I would too! Even though I would murder my son if he did that to our house.)

That was AWESOME! Though, where the hell were the neightborhood girls? I would totally have been on some of that rooftop slippy slide action when I was a stoopid teen. Broken neck be damned, I was immortal, too!

Actually, as an adult, that makes me afraid for parents everywhere. It was terribly inspirational...

You moved half a ton of compost in this heat and humidity?!? My husband's cleaning out the '68 Chevelle, and it's all I can do to drink a beer and fan myself...
Aug. 25th, 2007 10:23 pm (UTC)
Yeah, right? Those boys must live on a block like the one I lived on in high school: all boys and me and my sisters the only girls. (I loved that block like flowers love rain.)

We used to jump off our neighbor's roof onto the trampoline, then flip into the pool. I get cold sweats thinking of doing that again. The broken necks we could have gotten!! One guy in my school actually died trying to recreate that when he was drunk. :(

I did! I need a full body massage, nachos, margaritas STAT. I am EXHAUSTED.

Oh hell, that looks like a BLAST! I'd probably end up being mangled, but I'd totally try it!

Oh no! Poor, aching body. *sends meds*
Aug. 26th, 2007 01:26 pm (UTC)
Oh, to be sure, I would TEWTALLY do it. But I'd skin my kids alive if they rigged something like that up at my house when I wasn't there and had all their buddies risk their necks, too!

*loads on on yer meds*

I showed my daughter, and she is going to send the link to all her friends. I told her to include a disclaimer.

It looked like a total blast!
Aug. 26th, 2007 01:27 pm (UTC)
HAHAHAHA, YOU MISSED THE WHOLE POINT, OMG! Look at you enabling the neighborhood kids! (Hee!)
Aug. 26th, 2007 01:29 pm (UTC)
Danger Will Robinson. ::puts down danger sign::

LOL We were joking that there will have to be construction instructions attached to the friend's emails.

I just showed that video to Zachary. He got an evil grin and said "Remind me to do that if you go out of town".

I'd like to know how they calculated how far their bodies would travel before ending up in the pool.

You deserve to have a cabana boy give you a full body massage after all that hard labor.
Aug. 26th, 2007 01:28 pm (UTC)
Ahahahaha, I figured he'd think it was totally awesome. And the Mister and I were wondering what this kid's physics grade looked like, ourselves!

Mmmmmm, yes please! Hell, make it 2 cabana boys. :D (I'm still crippled this morning. OUCH.)

I'd like to know how they calculated how far their bodies would travel before ending up in the pool.

I noticed one of them in a sling in the beginning.
Aug. 27th, 2007 07:42 pm (UTC)
Really?!?! I'm going to rewatch that right now!
Aug. 26th, 2007 03:39 am (UTC)
But on the other hand, think of how well they're doing in those calculus classes. Math nerds are too cool!

We saw this on America's Funniest Home Videos last week-end, though of course the fact that they built it while the parents were out of town was NOT in the intro.
Aug. 26th, 2007 01:29 pm (UTC)
I'm thinking they excelled in physics - or they SHOULD be if they're doing this in lieu of their homework. :D

Oh, and did you notice that after the first run they parked a van under the slide for more support? :| Can you imagine if that broke apart? I'm such a mom, I can't help it.
Aug. 26th, 2007 03:48 am (UTC)
That slide is damn cool but I couldn't stop wincing. What a parents nightmare!

Hope you feel better, and get a nice rest!
Aug. 26th, 2007 01:31 pm (UTC)
*clutches you* YES! Their homeowners insurance if anything had gone wrong! The lawsuits!! (I may be scarred from a neighbor who made all of us kids get our parents to sign insurance waivers before we were allowed to jump on their trampoline...)

I feel sore, but it's a good hurt. We're off to soak in the pool for a few hours, that's always good for what ails you. :D
Aug. 26th, 2007 05:17 am (UTC)
OMG, that totally looks like fun...for youngsters who still bounce, that is.
nds you some of my ibupofen, a soothing cup of tea, and a handsome masseur*
Gosh,and I thought I worked hard today, but I only helped to load 53 bales of hay onto the truck, and unload and restack them in the barn. You win!
Aug. 26th, 2007 01:32 pm (UTC)
HOOOOOOOOO. I don't know - bales of hay are no picnic to move, and that's a BUNCH! All that twisting and tossing? You need a back massage, I'm sure! (And are your hands ripped up? I always ruined my work gloves and got blisters anyway.)

Here, I'll share my ibuprofen and the masseur. :D
Aug. 26th, 2007 06:15 pm (UTC)
All I could think about while watching that clip is the liability of the homeowner should any of those kids get seriously hurt. My god I'm getting old.
Aug. 26th, 2007 07:34 pm (UTC)
Well, I'm right there with you, because that's the first thing I thought of, too! Not just that but how dumb those guys were for putting ALL OF THEIR NAMES on the end, including the kids that showed up at night time. I can just see one mom finding that and writing them all down and playing telephone tree with all the parents.

(I also wondered what the hell the NEIGHBORS were thinking!)

My parents NEVER left us alone for more than a night - like, them going out, not LEAVING.

And yeah - it does look cool and fun after several of them go down it. I was terrified for that kid on the first run.
Aug. 27th, 2007 02:59 am (UTC)
That reminds me so much of everyone I went to college with.

Feel better!
Aug. 27th, 2007 01:36 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, it reminds me of ME when I was in college! Which is why I'll kill my children if they do anything like this. :D

(And thanks! A good long soak and a massage = right as rain!)
Aug. 27th, 2007 02:47 pm (UTC)
I watched this and cried from both utter amusement and insatiable envy...
Aug. 27th, 2007 03:20 pm (UTC)

(I would TOTALLY go down it, I'm not gonna lie to you. In a FLASH. My kids? No. Ha!)
Aug. 27th, 2007 03:12 pm (UTC)
I was terrified somebody was going to break his spine the whole time. Though it did make for one hell of a physics test.

Aug. 27th, 2007 03:19 pm (UTC)
*clutches you*

SERIOUSLY!!! Oh, and when that one kid missed the pool!? I gasped.

(And I can just see them turning this video and the "engineering blueprints" to their physics teacher for extra credit. *g*)
Aug. 27th, 2007 06:20 pm (UTC)
I don't know if they get bonus points for improvising with the van or lose points for not bracing the slide in the middle. Eeeep.

And yeah, I just kept expecting someone to miss the pool-- I saw a lot of them landing wrong-- so when that kid did, I was all, shit, that's it, broken bones now. And then the "he's fine" screen. I think someone needs to be smacked upside the head.

I have no kids. Why am I such a mom?

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
