Very Friendly Waitress: "Hi! Ooooh, how far along are you?"
Me: Uhhh . . . (look over at Claire sitting quietly in her infant seat. Suck in tummy a bit more. Contemplate skipping dinner.)
. . . . . . Awkward Pause . . . . . . .
Very Friendly Waitress: "I am only about 1/3 of the way through it. Isn't it good?"
Me: Wha? Huh?
Very Friendly Waitress: (gestures to the latest Harry Potter book we brought with us to read while waiting for our food.)
Me: Oh, yes. (giggle nervously) We are about at the half way point. Yes, yes . . . ah . . . very good indeed.

. . . who came equipped with his own stuffed weasel, raccoon tail (tucked ever so delicately into his sweat pants) and a game boy for playing before the concert. Ladies, I think this one is still available.
Now, I could continue to share funny facts about the fans, but all it does is remind me that I was there too. So, keeping in mind that when you point a finger there are three more pointing back at you (thanks Mom), I will stop here. I would hate to do anything to add to my own growing nerd-dom.

Okay, here are the pictures that were requested:
Pigs also requested a picture of Padme making her famous grimace. Sadly, I had trouble recreating it. You never know when she is going to do it and often times, the efforts involved in recreating it makes her think I am playing and she won't comply. This is as close as I could get, but I think Pigs will testify that it is nowhere close to the real deal.
And finally for Pigs, I present to you . . . my left knee pit. You weirdo.
Now for David, this I believe meets all your requirements. I am standing DIRECTLY in front of the mirror. The mirror extends at least 3 more feet to the left of the door. You never said I had to be in the same room as the mirror. This one took quite a bit of thought. I would expect nothing less from my brother's suggestion!!

In the comments section, request any picture that you would like for me to post on my blog. For example: Padme's favorite place to sleep or the dirtiest spot in my house. Be creative, while keeping in mind that my blog is rated PG. Now this is no time to sit back and let everyone else do the suggesting. All you non-commenting readers need to step up!!
I will post the pictures as soon as I can. We will be traveling with Claire this weekend so it will be next week sometime before I update with pictures. Have fun with your suggestions!

I use all caps because it was a very large truck, with a very strong trailer hitch. The trailer hitch was what caused all the damage. (Actually it was running into the hitch that caused the damage, but I digress.)
I could spend line after line here explaining that it wasn't ACTUALLY my fault considering that another vehicle 3 cars up felt that he was more important than everyone else and decided to change lanes at the last second causing everyone to stop abruptly. But I won't do that. Nope, not me. I won't waste my energy explaining that the TRUCK was so massive that I couldn't see over it to know that the traffic was coming to a screeching halt. You won't find me making excuses such as: "I saw the TRUCK's brake lights, but merely assumed it was a casual brake and before I realized it was a massive stop, it was too late." Nope, I am beyond petty excuses such as that.
I will, however, assure you that everyone was okay. Claire slept through the entire ordeal. We are thanking God every day that the Semi-Truck immediately behind us was able to stop in time and didn't slam into the back of us.
Our van is now stuck in a shop in another state. We are living with one vehicle until the van is repaired and we figure out how to go retrieve it.
Poor little van. It was only 7 months old. Sniff.
