...my past several days.

Bad: #2 had a "baby" this weekend (electronic doll) and her stress was my stress, because baby crying noise = me going bananas. But I couldn't make it stop, because it was her grade. And she would burst into tears when the crying would graduate to screaming. Once she picked it up too quickly at 3am (Sat.) and it SHRIEKED because it has a "baby shake" sensor. She was sobbing, "I'm sorry, oh I'm so sorry!" and it was just... D:
Good: That is seriously the best form of birth control there is.
Bad: We still cannot find the a-holes that attacked my son and his boyfriend.
Good: He has friends that are stepping up and supporting them, and are representing conscientious Christians in a lovely manner
Bad: The Mr. left his wallet before leaving for Chicago this week.
Good: He had his passport so he could get on the plane
Bad: He had no credit cards to check into the hotel, etc.
Good: FedEx is freaking amazing.
Bad:I haven't had a proper night's sleep in days.
Good: Because I've been working like a fiend to produce not one but TWO new TV programs, one of which I will be the host of, and the DIY Network is already in talks to purchase said show. And we've not filmed a minute of it yet. :D (The other is an amazing children's show that has the potential to be the next Yo Gabba Gabba, and I'm not even kidding.)
Bad: It's a LOT of work. Calls. Writing. Scheduling. Herding cats. dovil? There just might be an assistant's position open if I can get these babies off the ground. Plus: booze.

(Throw in the mix all of the chauffeuring I do, meals, cleaning, enforcing rules, enforcing studying/homework, dealing with surly teenagers while my husband is gone, a cat that got out, a cat that was found, a cat that got a scolding and cuddles, and a huge whining dog - because she could NOT stand the noises the robot baby made - and you come close to how my life has been since Friday night.)

HEY I AM GOING ON VACATION NEXT WEEK AND I CANNOT WAIT. Holy smokes, do I need a break.

Also, at HDJM there is new Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, Hoarders, and Teen Wolf waiting for you. THANK YOU for all of the likes, +1s, tweeting, linking and tumbling you're doing! I can see all of that, and I am so grateful to those of you supporting the site! <3

Good grief, woman! That's more than most people could handle in a lifetime, and this is just a week! Hugs, wine, and strength be yours!

It's like *usually* your life is a roller-coaster, and this week someone made you juggle knives the whole way down the big hill. *hugs*

So glad there's lots of amazingly good stuff coming up, even if it'll be a ginormous bunch of work!

*leans* All I want in life is to be a kept woman with a cocktail hour televised on BravoTV, why isn't that my life? :D hand-picked smarmy drunk guests! IT WOULD BE A SMASH HIT.

I am excited about the upcoming goodies, that's for sure.

Seems completely reasonable to me!!!

Also, I barely noticed your subject line, but it wormed into my head anyway, and I've been singing "Facts of Life" in the voice of the wacky arsonist from Wonderfalls ever since!

Holy fuck. o.O You sure got your work cut out for you!

Also... No Sons of Anarchy on your site? Why is that? That show = WIN! (I'm up to episode one of season 5... No spoilers!)

Anyhow! Best of luck with EVERYTHING! I got my own baby robot here... no wait, that would be my daughter. *lol* X-D

I don't have a writer for it that's hit the ball out of the park! Finding writers is tough - we have a certain style that I have to find. *shrug*

And thank you! Awww - BABY GIRLS. I got STUPID baby hungry with that flippin' robot baby. It cooed and sighed and gurgled and breathed and I remembered how lovely little babies are! (And then we all woke up at 3 in the morning and I do not want another baby now. Hahaha. I MEAN, YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THE NEXT 18 YEARS.) :)

LOL - WHOOPS! I mean, SUNSHINE AND KITTENS AND RAINBOWS AND HUGS, that is what motherhood is made of!

X-D Well, I'll take the good with the bad when it comes to motherhood. ;-) I am FULL aware of the fact it ain't just sunshine and flowers. :-) I am very grateful she already sleeps all night long... at the tender age of 8 weeks. :-)

And hey, if had been able to write, I would SO have written for SoA for your site... Unfortunally, I am no good writer so... :-)

AHAHAHAHA. OMG, there were two pregnant girls in her class and I just wanted to send them a year back in a time machine (with the robot babies.)

YES YES YOU CAN DO THAT. I need a hot New Yorker posing in the background with shovels.

Bad = Booooooo! Good = Yaaaaaay! I'm tired, it's the most my brain can come up with.

And yes, become rich and famous and pay me to push people out of your way as you walk past. I get a pair of sunglasses with this, right?

I am still mega excited for you and I haven't stopped peeing. I should see a doctor.

I SUPPORT YOU SEEKING MEDICAL ATTENTION. Or wearing diapers. What a time saver!

Dude, I am serious about you working for Nipply Russel, our current name for our production company. How freaking bad ass would that be?

IT WOULD BE BAD ASS, IS WHAT I AM SAYING.

I just bought my plane ticket. Wait, it's to Wellington. I think I'm going to have to save more. Quick, you do all the hard work and then lay those sweet, sweet coattails down. Ahahaha.

The ass is so bad it just knifed someone.

We will have a real live baby here in 5 weeks. I am hoping that the memory of her crying and fussiness burns into the boys brains and becomes a form of birth control for them. Also, I am thrilled that my ladyfriends like HDJM as much as I do.
stoney321
Oct. 11th, 2012 01:53 am (UTC)
BABY. I will borrow that baby from you. I just want to smell her little fontanelle.

(Seriously, that robot baby = greatest birth control device ever created.)

I like that your ladyfriends like it, too! That's incredibly awesome.

Good god, girlfriend, I am exhausted just reading this. You are a tornado! And I need a drink on your behalf.

an hour ago I LITERALLY face-planted onto my bed and laid there for 30 min. Then I refilled my wine glass.

I WOULD LIKE A WIFE, PLEASE. <3

That's a hell of a week. *gives you a glass of wine* Re-reads post* *gives you a whole bottle of wine*
I really hope they catch those assholes because they need to be caught.
I hope your son and his boyfriend are both okay and glad they have support.
Good luck with all things production related.
*HUGS*

I poured myself a Big Carl last night and went to bed early. SUCCESS.

*hugs you tight* Thanks for all the support, sweetheart. <3

Boy. You deserve a vacation! This makes me tired just to read it!

Man, I sacked out last night. It all caught up with me, that's for sure. *leans against you*

Oh baby, darling, that is all too much at once. You have earned every vacation!

You MUST take on dovil as your PA, if only for the killer tell-all exposé she will write when you're uber-famous, which will be made into a tv series starring you! Make sure the non-disclosure agreement has lots of holes in it.
stoney321
Oct. 11th, 2012 03:37 pm (UTC)
IT WAS A LOT. Oh, next week will be GLORIOUS.

AHAHAHA, Dovil totally would do that, too. And I'd ply her with booze and she'd have fantastic stories to share, and they would be hilarious because she would be telling them.

...we might not get anything done if we work together, though. :D

Oh my dear lord, what a crap week. (And what happened to your son...I can't even imagine, mama bear.) Here, have a hug, with smooshy boobs. (((@@)))

ENJOY that vacation, darling. You deserve it.

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.
