I think I was witness to a scandal. Terry, Brendan and I went out for lunch today at Ruby Tuesday’s and saw Roy from the Dunder Mifflin warehouse. He must be over Pam cause he was there with another girl. He probably brought her to Park City thinking that no one from Scranton would know.
But seriously folks…
It seems that every year I see someone who looks familiar walking around in PC and I can’t place the face. Then, they turn out to actually be some sort of celebrity I should recognize, but probably couldn’t pick out of a line up. Today was different. I know who Roy (David Benman) is.
I think I got more enjoyment out of seeing him than if it was someone like Martin Scorsese or Tom Cruise . I’m not a big fan of “Hollywood” movies produced and sponsored by Taco Bell and Pepsi. However, I’m a huge fan of the Office.
Kelly and I used to come up to PC during the weekends and look people watch during the shows. It’s a blast. Everyone is in black, talking on a cell phone, wearing a pass of some sort and trying to be mistaken for a famous director or something. It’s such a departure form the typical fur wearing families on vacation from Miami. (It’s odd here)
This year it seems like everyone is in Park City. It’s probably from the lack of work going on right now due to the writers strike.
I can’t believe it’s already been two years. People tell you time goes by fast and that your children will grow up faster than you think. So I don’t know why it’s catching me by surprise but it feels like yesterday that she was born.
Kelly and I decided not to have a large party and keep it just the us for Mc-family members this year. I was traveling in Chicago and booked an early flight to get home a little early to help Kelly with party prep, but O’Hare Airport didn’t take this into account. I was delayed three times leaving the airport and got home just before bed time. As I walked in the door Ellie ran up to me and said, “Da Da, cup cakes and presents!” Even though I was late we had a great time.
Be sure to look at the photos and video we made. Her Big present was a brand new Cozy Coupe. Now She and Mommy both have a “New Ca-i” (That’s Ellie’s pronunciation of Car). Ellie also got nice gifts from Grandma McIntosh and Grandma/Grandpa Tschohl. (thank you)
We had a nice Christmas and holiday season. For the most part we just stayed home and took it easy. We did had a fun Holiday party earlier in December and Kelly’s parents came to visit us before Christmas for a few days. As of the last couple years the McIntosh’s have a new rule about not trying to travel during the holidays with the two little girls. Additionally, since I work in online retail, it’s my busiest time at work.
The girls did a great job in their schools holiday pageant. Mia had been practicing her routine at home over and over in the weeks leading up to the show and we didn’t see anything out of Ellie. However Mia got a little stage fright in front of the 300 plus parents and family members and didn’t quite pull off all the moves. She tried her best though. But, Ellie stole the show. She did such a good job that all the parents around us were commenting on how cute she was and how well she stayed upfront and focused on the dance routine. (continue reading…)
