Mr. Nielson and I took the Little Nies to the
hot new Christmas movie: The Nutcracker.
I was severely disappointed, and I will leave it at that,
because I am sure there were plenty of people who
liked the movie( my daughter Claire is one of them).
Anyway, I am not sure how it started, but Christian and I have this thing we do
every single time we go to a movie together.
(And it drives some of the Little Nies crazy).
After the movie is over we stay and watch the credits until
we have found every member of our families names.
Sometimes it's super stressful.
It's OK if it's not the correct spelling, middle names get extra points,
and we get bonus points for finding pet names.
And I say "points" like we actually get points, we don't.
We don't get anything but the satisfaction of overcoming our
(my) OCD behavior.
Surprisingly we usually find all our names, and more eyes watching the screen
the better, that way we don't miss anyone.
My name is getting harder to pick out and Jane is the easiest to find.
Please tell me that I am not the only person who does this.
