Wooden you love to be a fly on the wall?

Wonderhubby was surfing the 'net. He does that a lot now that we have not-exactly-matching laptops (mine's a Mac, though, so it's better!!!!).

It's defensive surfing though. What the heck else is he going to do while I blog, Plurk or whip some butt at Word Twist?

Anyway, he likes to share what he finds. Occasionally he takes online news quizzes, and we share answers. It's quite preshus, really.

Which brings us to Saturday night. An evening of football playoffs and parallel play on the 'puters.

"Jenny McCarthy ..." he mused aloud. "Isn't that ... uh ... I can't think of his name. But isn't that ... oh yeah, Paul McCartney's wife -- the one who got all that money?"

"No, that's Heather Mills," I answered. "And anyway, her last name would have been McCartney, not McCarthy."

"Oh, right," he said, bypassing Ms. McCarthy and moving on to another page.

He looked up at me, quizzically. "I wonder if she's Charlie McCarthy's granddaughter ..."

All I could do was stare at him -- and then burst out laughing.

Wonderhubby looked a little sheepish.

"Except for he's a puppet, isn't he?"

After which I spoke the words he lives to hear:

"Oh man, I am SO blogging that."

That really is very preshus that you co-surf. I wonder if Wonderhubby doesn't have his own twitter, plurk, and blogger account and just isn't telling you, though. How funny would that be!

Aw, how sweet. Quality bonding time for couples of 2009.

Debbie said...

Thank you. That was the best laugh I've had in a long time. (And my apologies to your husband for that.) You all are the best family for me to know.

LceeL said...

Exactly what we do. Only I try to make it much more difficult for her than he does for you. I don't always succeed ... but he's too easy.

Sarah said...

LMAO!!! That is too much!

I love that you co-surf! I dream of the day that we have two computers and can do that (Except I would have a laptop...and he'd be on a desk top.

Gregg does the same thing...but with the Journal. Reads an article and then tells me all about it. Reads another article and tells me all about it. I can only imagine what it would be like if we were both sitting here with our laptops open!

Karen said...

You two are just too cute for words. Or is that preshus?

Momo Fali said...

Funny! Whenever my daughter hears me laughing about something, she'll ask, "Is that going to be a blog post?"

Nap Warden said...

Husband cringes at the words "I am blogging this";)

What does he think? Candice Bergen is her mother? Poor WH.

Trannyhead said...

My question is what websites was he examining, exactly? It sounds a little like perezhilton or something. Hawt.

Suzanne said...

He should know to think before speaking, lest it become blog fodder!

Shelley said...

Dropping by to let you know I lurk often!

Janet said...

I think that's very sweet. We only have the one computer. (I MISS MY MAC!!!!!) sorry, I'm ok now.

THe Mountain Man can now predict his own blogworthy moments.

Jaina said...

LMAO. Too funny.

Janet said...

I was drinking in a bar last night (isn't that the first line in a joke?) and this guy was saying how Hillary was going to have a hard time as Secretary of State in certain countries...and I said well, with her background and given the fact of her husband, I don't think that the first woman secretary of state will have that hard of a time. He just looked at me and said...have you heard of Condoleeza Rice? O.M.G. Give me another martini!!!
