The Things You Discover (and stuff)...

So I was cleaning out the garage and I found this awesome list that my daughter and her friend made. It's great because not only is it filled with useful tips for those boring days when you have nothing to do...but also...it's HILARIOUS!

My favorite item: #12 (although I'm not sure if you have to have the box for the Time Travel, or if you have to travel through time to find the box...either way, it sounds wicked fun!!!)

I also appreciate their use of the word "stuff" as a catch-all phrase, I think it shows a certain...umm, creativity on their part. Yeah...





So consider this like a Public Service Announcement or something (and don't say I never did anything for you).

Now, get out there and "run around and stuff!"

Candace said...

Love it! That's awesome. I remember making lists like that myself... Yeah, if I remember correctly time travel was also on my list.
And we have a huge cardboard box here. Maybe we'll go do that right now. And stuff.

man, this could have been so much worse - just imagine what abby's list will say when she's 16 - yikes! looksl ike they decided on paper airplanes. I love the innocence of this.

Mama Bookworm said...

That list is seriously adorable!

Heidi Willis said...

what an awesome list! I'm a list maker myself, but clearly I'm too anal because I'm very specific. I think I'll start one like this.

How about I start with "Write stuff."

:) She is so precious...and precocious!

Is this real? This can't be real. This is entirely too awesome to be real.

Kimberly Derting said...

Berk - Oh it's real. And awesome!

Heidi - Yes, my lists will now be: "Do laundry or something" and "Make dinner and stuff". It's perfect for those days I just don't feel like sticking to the plan!

Candace - Let me know if it *actually* works, the time travel/box thing! ;)

Kimberly Derting said...

Shelli - Your comment made my vision blur...Abby at 16, I'm not sure I'll survive...

This is so cute, your daughter and her friends are incredibly creative!

Elle Strauss said...

Love it! This is great. Good black mail fodder for when she's a teenager.

That was funny - now I'm going to watch T.V. and "stuff". :)

Wendy Paine Miller said...

I love the roll around and stuff. I think that might have been how I got the children. ;)

And do something with a tennis ball...a classic.

This is amazing and stuff.

With #14... I think JJ Abrams stole her idea.

Kimberly Derting said...

OMG, Wendy, you cracked me up...apparently your list is way more fun than my list!

jberk said...

I just listened to a Demetri Martin joke today: "I have a time machine. It only goes forward and at regular speed ... Actually it's just a cardboard box that I wrote 'time machine' on with a Sharpie." Made me think of #12 and stuff!

Little Ms J said...

I have a big thingie (what is the stand thingie you put them in?) of tennis balls in my garage. I think I will bring them inside and do stuff with them. I may start by beaning Mr. J.

And stuff.

Love it.

Kimberly Derting said...

LMJ - Or something.

Berk - Sounds like Demetri Martin's been blog-stalking me. Again.

Katie said...
