So, I had a really cute conversation with my mom yesterday. My mom knows about all my geek hobbies and such and knows I have a website. She's able to send emails for a couple years now, but only a couple weeks ago figured out how to send an attachment.

She called me and was telling me about this man in South Carolina who made really cool topiary trees. (I think she was talking about Pearl Fryar) She was all, "He started just making topiaries because he liked it, and now he's on the WORLD WIDE WEB, Aimee!"
Me: "Mom. I'm on the World Wide Web."
Mom: "When you search for him on google he comes up! He has his own website!"
Me: "I have a website. Mom, why don't you try searching for me on google."
Mom: "... ok... I'm searching... AIMEE! You have 10,500 search results about you on google!" (note: actually 27,600 for my maiden name)
Me: "yeah, mom. I've been on the internet since um... 1994 or something and I do a lot of things."
Mom: " D: You're like sort-of famous or something!"
Me: "Yes, your daughter is on the World Wide Web."

(I thought it was also funny that being on the WWW and google was more impressive to her than the fact that there's been a documentary made about Pearl...) I love my mom.
