*PIROUETTES*

"It's the moooooooost wonderful tiiiiiiiiiiiime of the yeeeeeeear!"

If you're wondering if my children are all in school today, give yourself fifty extra points because HUZZAH! I am officially the mother of a junior high student (which is WEIRDNESS, I'm only 18! Wait...) and although the bus NEVER SHOWED UP (this is our first year riding the bus) we loaded The Boy in the car, zipped him off, got the girls' lunches packed in their bento boxes, walked them to school and tap danced home. Figuratively. (It was more of a barrel roll with jazz hands)

I am going to see Superbad at noon based on southernbangels rec and maybe take a nap in an hour, I can do whatever I want!!! *walks around naked eating CHIPS and SWEARING*

Last night was our first dress rehearsal and I must say, my whore shoes are RIDICULOUSLY comfortable. No wonder strippers like them. Ha ha ha! The shorts are SO short, but my Sarah Michelle Gellar (seriously: she is her SPITTING IMAGE, but taller) co-star ends up wearing some of "my" shorts and her ass cheeks are truly hanging out at one point, so I consider myself lucky. The hunka hunka boy had two pairs of pants to try on, and I mentioned the second pair "showcased" him better, and he picked those. Heee! It's like having a legal affair, except there's no kissing or sex, just me coming on to him non-stop and him refusing me with a filthy look. So... just like real life. Ahaha.

I *do* have to kiss a guy - we have yet to meet (=/) and apparently he looks like the coach/dad on "Just The Ten of Us." Because... if you haven't kissed another man aside from your husband in over 8 years... that's the guy you want to kiss. Not Mr. Hot!Ass dusky Indian hotness. Nope, bring on the bald butterball. *head desk* (Hee! I kid.)

I spoke to entrenous88 a few times this weekend, and she and her little family seem like they are happy to be starting anew in their new place, and that was good to hear. I was left a little "meh" over the Big Love season finale last night and I LITERALLY held a hand up to the screen to block out greasy weenie dude when Sarah and he have sex. EeeeeeeeEEEEeeeew! That guy makes my SKIN CRAWL. Ben, too. They need to pack some meat on that kid's bones so he doesn't look so awkward bodied. (Granted, they both are PERFECT at looking like typical Utah guys. Bleh.) Bill makes me sick - the whole Anna situation is irritating. Margene is innocently sweet about it, but... Geh. The best show on Sunday nights remains the BBC/Discovery Channel's The Blue Planet. Absolutely stunning. My little marine biologists are in hog heaven with that on the tube. (Note for those with sensitive kids/selves: anytime you see seals... Just leave the room at the 2 minute mark. Inevitably the Orcas will show up, and it made my Emily - and me - cry. :( Orcas are just horrid. I mean, I know they need to eat. But they're so cruel. Ditto on leaving when the clip with the grey whale and her baby airs. Leave as soon as you see the black fins crest behind them. Come back after five minutes. Trust me.)

I'm going to crank up The Chronic or some other dirty-worded music and enjoy my house. MY HOUSE IS MINE AGAIN!!! *gets krunked up*

(And happy birthday piratequeen!! I hope you have a FABULOUS day. *hearts my Kat(i)e/Gwyn*

Thank you, my dear! *hearts you back*

I had no idea Big Love was on last night. Can't wait to go home and watch it.

Yeah - they changed the schedule for the last two eps, which... that's not helping your audience.

HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS, BEAUTIFUL!!

Yay for house-of-your-ownness!

Speaking of buses--I can't count how many times I had to wakl back to the apartment and patiently explain to my parents that, yes, the bus had failed to show up again, and no I wasn't trying to play hooky and can we please call the school district and explain in no uncertain terms that my dad is a news producer for the highest rated evening newscast in the county and isn't afraid to dispatch a video team?

We never had to resort to the threats, but it did take a handful of phone calls (and some neighborly coordinating to make sure we were legit and not trying to play hooky) to get things mostly straightened out.

This nonsense happened in more than one Texas school district; I'm wondering if it's something in the water.

Apparently the school has contracted out the bussing, and our neighbors warned us ahead of time that the bus was unreliable. Which... what the hell? We're in one of the best school districts in the state - we're also 2 miles from the school. IT'S NOT HARD. (And I wish I had some clout like you had!)

Superbad = greatest movie ever, y/y? I think you will agree! If Mr. Stoney goes with you and he doesn't like it? He's a big, gaping vagina.

I want to have awkward!not!sex with George Michael. There, I said it. I want to write GM/Me dry humping fic for the no-sex ficathon.

I can't wait to watch Big Love tonight. I can't believe we have to wait TEN MONTHS until next season. :(

Hurrah to the kids being back in school!! SWEET FREEDOM!

I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE IT!! (I am going alone. The Mister is all gay and going to WORK. pffft.)

Hahahaha, you should SO write some Mary Sue/GM dry hump fic! We really needed to get that Mary Sue yourself ficathon running...

SWEET SWEET FREEDOM! I am cranking the tunes, yo!

Oh, thank GOD you signed your comment - I never would have known who was chubbing up from the chips! Hahaha.

I WILL TELL YOU ABOUT THE MOVIE - it looks HILARIOUS.

~Laura, Your sister, we shared a room for several years? No? Not ringing any bells? Um... I used to steal your stone-washed Gap jeans in 10th grade?

Ditto. I was certainly expecting more fireworks for a season finale and all we got IMO was ammo for next season.

Mmm hmmm. The Alby/his wife stuff was very interesting, but over all... Eh. I did like the Wanda/Mom scene and hoped she would poison her mother in law. But over all, it fell flat for me.

She might not have a charger!! I think her house was supposed to be ready to get loaded/turned on/etc. today, so I am SURE you will hear from her!

So, Thing 2 is ensconced in her tiny dorm room in Missoula with her tiny and exquisite roommate and Thing 1 has, apparently, registered for classes at TESC but will still be living at home. Life is good when the kids are out of the house during the day.

Julia, advice from experience: encourage your offspring to seek college education close enough that you can drive there and back in one day or far enough that no sane person will drive that far. Missoula is in the "too far to drive easily, way too close to fly" zone, and it doth sucketh mightily

Yay to school being back in session. The neighborhood kids were all hang dog, listlessly playing street hoops this weekend and bitching about school starting up. I'm all "Wait until you're a grown up, you'll see what no fun is all about!" In my head, of course, I don't want to totally act like the crazy neighbor lady for a few more years.

It's like I've got the entire neighborhood to myself again! Whee!

Big Love season finale - totally flat. Seemed like a filler episode to me, not a season finale. A fair amount happened but it all happened really quickly - Barb coming out to the neighbors - why? Sarah having sex with skanky boyfriend - I think they should have had her preserving her innocence by the Jessica Simpson method that Nicki was hinting at - blowjobs and ass sex. And also - stupid to change days. Tivo caught it for me.


stoney321
Aug. 27th, 2007 07:51 pm (UTC)
YES YES YES!! It totally felt like filler! They just wanted to make sure we'll come back and watch S3 - all the built up tension with Alby/Nikki/Bill/Roman... Nothing. It felt like the air being let out of tires.

The Barb thing made NO SENSE to me, either. What the hell? I am so grossed out by the actor (and the character - he's in his mid-late twenties dating a 16 year old?!?!) that boned Sarah. It was just distasteful and bizarre. Bad writing, imo.

I really have absolutely no witty comments to make here, other than to tell you how your pithy little posts always seem to make my day a little brighter (even when they are good days that are naturally bright).

Oh and congrats on having the house to yourself! Practice up on your naked chip eating and maybe one day it'll be an Olympic sport!

Awww, aren't you a sweetie! "even when they are good days that are naturally bright" I love that phrase!

Oooooh, I would SO take a bronze in that sport! Heee.

I am sad school is starting back up. I live across the street from a school. Iz no fun.

Though, I always wonder what the 12 year olds think of me when I'm sitting on my porch, smoking a cigarette and drinking a Mike's Hard Lemonade at like 10 in the morning. Hee!

Those 12 year olds are thinking, "Coooooooooooooool!" :D

Wrong. The best show on Sunday nights is Vh1's Rock of Love w/Bret Michaels. OMG, so trashy. Chris and I are embarrassed that we can't stop watching.

Oh my god, I watched one episode and was so embarassed on behalf of those girls that I couldn't watch anymore. It's like how I can't watch the audition portion of American Idol. I feel pain for them. :D

WHOOOOOO!! Oh, it is BLISS I tell you, BLISS to have that quiet house and several hours all to yourself.

No list yet? BAH. Is it possible to call the teacher/school and ask for that to be expedited? I mean, you NEED to get prepared, right?

She said it was so good to see you, too. As of noon (when she texted me) they hadn't come, so I'm hoping I've not heard further because she's happily unpacking!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
