My lovely wife now has her own blog!! I’ve been trying to sell her on the idea for a while now and she finally took my up on the offer. Please be kind and wipe your feet before going in.
Love has urinated in my front yard and walked away. (it’s a comic, really… Fred Milton is definitely number one toilet)
Tardy is Terrific
Greg the Bunny was hilarious tonight. What a great show that’s getting no promotion at all. It was off for sweeps, and then tonight’s episode got nothing. I didn’t see an ad at all. Tardy had a bunch of lines, and yes, they were all great. The show is pretty much perfect, and well, it’s on the list of summer shows that should keep me entertained during the heat and reruns.
She Speaks Again!!
Kev has offered to set up a website of my very own. Nice of him, huh? Personally though, I think it is because he doesn’t want to share his groovy ‘fighting spacemen” with me. And what if nobody goes to my site? Kev already gets tons of traffic, so I would have a ready-made audience for my Max stories (like how he can spell zebra and book, among others) and for my life-as-a-housewife commentary. Ahh well, Kev said he would show me to my own site tonight… So, this is Jen signing off.
Editor’s Note: I’m under the weather, so it may be a couple days till Jen’s site gets set up. But, it will happen shortly!!! And I don’t get “tons” of traffic. 50 unique visitors a day does not mean a “ton”.
This one’s from Jen:
Kevin has been too busy to blog, so I am going to try to take up the slack. Some info about me: I am 28 (gasp!), graduate of U of Arizona, mom to super Max, and a Taurus. My hobbies include reading, lunching with the ladies, and decorating my house. Here is a list of things I love and hate:
- Being married to Kev
- This picture of Max
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
- March Madness
- The Olive Garden
- Jason Biggs’ character in American Pie 2 said, “One time, at band camp…”
- Macaroni Grill
- PT Cruisers
Here is a list about Max
- Blue’s Clues
- Lambie, his stuffed lamb
- Aunt Heather and Uncle Steve, his favorite playmates
- numbers and letters, he draws them constantly
- Barney (ok, well, Max doesn’t really hate barney. I hate him for the both if us and he
is strictly forbidden in the house)
- Aunt Heather’s hair when straight (Max actually said, “I don’t like it… I don’t like it”
when he first saw Aunt Heather’s hair straight from the salon)
- Being pantless
A post in three parts… First, the world’s most perfect guacamole recipe:
- 2 ripe avacados
- a dash of chili powder
- a pinch of cumin (if you don’t have cumin, curry will work)
- a splash of salsa
- 1 small tomato
Peel and pit the avacados, dice into small, dice sized bits and put in small mixing bowl. Dice tomato and add to bowl. Add salsa and spices, mix lightly with potato masher. Leave small chunks of avacados and tomato. There you go, it should be perfect!
We’re watching the end of the Lakers/Kings games, and I’m having a ball watching Jen react to every little thing. She’s much better and more entertaining (and cuter too) than anyone NBC could have calling the game. She’s hilarious. The game just ended and Sacramento won. Two fat white guys in Hawaiiian shirts high-fived Chris Webber, and Jen, being extremely excited that the Kings won, squeeled, “I love those two fat guys! They’re my favorite two new guys!!!” She’s now exulting over all the replays. My wife could not be cooler, cuter or more attractive to me right now. She’s the best.
And I finally finished Metropolis. I stand by my comments from earlier. It’s good. It has some of those corny Anime moments, but overall, it was great. It was beautifully done, with some seamless CGI integrated with the traditional cell. Excellent. If you liked Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, and liked the idea of A.I., but thought the execution sucked, this is the movie for you.
There you go, food, fun and film. Does it get better than that?
I’ve been listening to a lot of The Police lately. Man in a Suitcase is my new favorite song. The live version from their boxed set is one of the greatest happy depressing songs ever. Before Sting went all new age hippy, they were one of the world’s greatest ska bands. Sting, what happened to you?
In my rush to get out the door to take mom to the airport for her big family reunion trip to Texas, I forgot to wash my hair. It’s really put a damper on my day. I have dirty hair and it’s sad. My scalp itches just a little. It’s disgusting. I’m sure nobody noticed, which is nice, but it’s still just not right.
I’ve been staying up too late and working too hard. I’ve been neglecting the little things that make life good, like playing with my son, kissing my wife, reading magazines and books (it’s been two months since my birthday and I still haven’t finished Emergence), writing things for this site, surfing my favorite blogs, feeling relaxed at all. I pace when I’m not doing something, and feel like I’m missing something when I am doing something. I’m always running somewhere, whether I’m sitting or standing.
But, in good news, I just found out (after writing the first paragraph) that I’m getting a shiny new Powerbook from work! It’s the not the brand new ones, but it’ll do. It’s coming tomorrow, and the best part is that I had no idea it was on its way! I wasn’t even sure it was going to be approved! Now I have a reason to come in tomorrow…
