might as well jump

Here I am, again. Sneaking a blog in from work. It's my break, really it is. Ahem.
Anyhow. Work is fine. I whipped up a batch of Hollsters and brought them with me. All is well.
I'm tired. That's to be expected, right?
Anyhow, on to the "meat" of the post.

This weekend, among many of the other fun things we did, MM and I went to see a movie. Jumper. I only will talk about one aspect of this movie, because I thought it was cool. His ability to "jump" anywhere.
How much fun would that be? I could visit each of you whenever we wanted, I could see the sun rise more than once a day, (or the sun set, for that matter.). We could immediately be with family who needed us. I could help people, super hero like.And I could see all the places that have mystified me. Without the long, boring air travel. Or the ever perky flight attendents.
Craving french food? Fresh croissants for breakfast? A baguette? Leap to Paris. Lunch? How about some pad thai? To Thailand it is! Then, dinner. Hmmmmmmmm. How about Sushi? Tokyo, here I come. Dessert? Back to Paris for a real Creme Brulee. Yes. And the next day? Start all over. BBQ in Tennessee, maybe. Spanakopita in Greece, Lasagna in Italy. Hollsters in Wales. The possibilities were endless.
Would it get old, this jumping? Maybe. Maybe not. I'd sure like to give it a try

Wouldn't it be grand if my mother in law (or mother!) could just show up instantly with no warning in my living room?

How great would it be if my psycho ex showed up at my wedding?

How about that crazy chick you knew in high school that wanted to be you. All the sudden, she's in your car with you on the way to work!

I'm good without all the jumping. :)

Stability has it's bonuses too.

okay how about we call ahead before we jump.

i'd quite like to jump to portland, honolulu, canada. yeah, i could do that.

i'd like to jump to the golf course right now. ..

I would vote for the call ahead jumping .. its not nice to jump in unexpectedly .. people need to at least try/pretend to straigthen up or at least say Oh I was about to clean this pigsty but lets jump elsewhere together .. how about to a spa .. now that would be perfect

CamiKaos said...

I'm with Holls, lets all jump with permission... I could pop right over to Cardiff or CB or Ohio or somewhere WARM AND SUNNY with the warm sun beating down on my back and my toes sifting through the wet sand....

sorry... distracted.

Lori said...

I'd love to be able to jump, but restrict other's ability to jump. Ah, in a perfect world.

Marcus said...

Just don't jump in to my shower...

Mimi said...

Bwahahahahahaha, the comments are brilliant.

Have you read "The Time Traveler's Wife" which Jumper makes me think of. It's amazing, and will rip your heart out.

I would LOVE that ability! Think how freaking FIT we'd be, then! Haha

DaddyKaos said...

Don't care if someone called or not, if they jump in while I'm on the crapper, well they get what they get. If I don't like the timing, WTF, I just jump somewhere else and yes Holly, I could jump to St. Andrews real quick.

But was the movie any good? I heard it wasn't.

Celtic Rose said...

Call ahead sounds good. But I wonder . . . wouldn't we run the risk of missing out on things. Or would we all become a bit more impatient because we could just 'jump.'
I would worry that instant gratification would make life a bit unpleasant.

Hmmm, wonder if there is such a thing as 'jump-sickness' you know, like airsickness etc.

Call ahead jumping, the wave of the future. But as much as I love you all, I would respect you enough to MEET you in a cool place. Not your bathrooms!
DK- the movie was so-so. We didn't hate it, but it could have been better

Mimi- I ADORED that book. But he really had no power over his jumps, like this guy did

sybil law said...

Hey, Jumpin' Jack -you are officially tagged. Didn't jump quick enough to escape that, didja?! Haha
