Yeah with me it's all the lyrics to the soundtrack of Les Miserables and about every Captain Jack Sparrow quote.

That too.  Both of them. :)

or.... I ask DS repeatedly if he has to go to the bathroom before bed/car trip/swim lessons and he says no. Two seconds into the trip/bed/lesson-he has to go RIGHT NOW.  Sigh.  (He's 4)

My 4-year-old granddaughter does that. Now I just send her to the bathroom to "try" and it usually works, even if she insists she doesn't need to go.

When I realize, when a book comes out that's based on a movie, that I've been mispronouncing one of the main characters names for years.   Hermione is the best example.  I was pronouncing it "Herm-oh-inn" and wondering what kind of a name that was for a girl.

Yeah, it sounds much better as Hermi-onee.

I have a monthly train pass that covers my commute between Manhattan and my town, but sometimes I go to my boyfriend's house in a town further up the line.  The last 5 times I did so, I purchased an extra far ticket to cover the cost from my town to his town.  It's about $5.  Every time, the conductor saw my regular commuter pass and just waved me on and didn't ask for the upgrade ticket.  I can't get a refund for it though because there's a fee that wipes out the cost of the ticket making the refund moot.  So this week I did NOT buy the upgrade fare since they never ask for the ticket, and naturally, this week they asked for the ticket and I was forced to pay the on-board price of the upgrade.   ::)

Yeah, when the Twilight movie came out, one of my friends was terribly embarrassed that she'd been mispronouncing a name as Lauren with a t on it instead of "Lore - aunt."

I can sing "Yakko's World" in it's entirety.

Here's a link to the song, if you don't know what it is.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x88Z5txBc7w

Yet, I can't remember my parents' PO Box number.  The number they've had for 25 years.  Yeah, I'm that hopeless.

I'm betting my DDs hate it when, before a long car trip, I still ask them if they went to the bathroom.

DDs are 18 & 20. ::)

Yep. Me too. Except mine are songs from the fourth grade....really? And I can't remember what I did yesterday?

I wear slacks or jeans to work, so I put my car keys in my pockets (I don't carry a purse.)

When the weather changes and I start wearing a jacket to work, I put my car keys in my jacket pocket instead of my pants pocket.

It really bothers me to no end when I leave work, get to my car (a very long walk) and dig into my pants pocket for my keys . . . why, oh, why? is it at that moment that I remembered that I wore a jacket to work?

Yup. My car keys are in the pocket of my jacket (which I'm not used to wearing) . . . that is hanging up in my office. ::)

Happens every year.

This is the method I use to avoid leaving things at work. I sometimes go shopping before work and need to put things in the fridge until I get off. I put my keys with them so I don't forget the items at the end of the day.

When your 13 year old insists on putting his $200 Google Nexus 7 in his pocket and he walks through the laundry room where the little yippie jumpy dog is hanging out and the little yippie jumpy dog jumps up on him, yanking the Nexus out of his pocket, cracking the screen and utterly destroying it.

BTDT and haven't found out until it's a few hours later and I'm wondering why I can't smell it cooking.

When you put the food in, plug it in, turn it on, and when your back is turned your DuH wanders through the kitchen, sees that the machine is on (it had a red light on the front) and TURNS IT OFF!!!

When you decide to catch the bus into the city to go shopping with DH instead of driving, then finding an shoe store full of shoes that
A. you actually like
B. actually fit
C. are one sale that day for a ridiculous price. 

Yep, that was us yesterday struggling with 11 boxes of shoes trying to get home on the bus.  We have never taken the bus in before and we never find anything we like to buy.

I will sit in one place using scotch tape or a calculator, and set it down. When I need it not 5 minutes later, it has disappeared!

My cousin spells her name "Hermione", but is pronounced "her mean", with the accent on the 2nd syllable.
