Oscar Party!

I currently have the following Oscar nominee DVD's waiting for me to watch them:

Walk the Line
Pride and Prejudice
North Country

But tonight is the start of The Amazing Race. And Top Model.
My favorites.

And did you see that dingbat Summer on The Apprentice last night? Lesson to everyone out there - Better to say nothing and be thought a fool than to say something stupid and remove all doubt. Got that, kids? Score another on the "pretty but stupid girl" chart. I'm trying to prove that it's impossible for female reality show contestants to be both pretty and smart. It's going well so far, unfortunately. There are so few of us beautiful geniuses left. Sigh.

In other Reality Show news, if you haven't heard, Bachelor Travis picked Kindergarten Teacher Sarah, as I predicted from DAY ONE, thank you very much. As reality shows go, The Bachelor is the one I enjoy the least and rarely watch. When are those girls gonna figure out that the first girl to put out NEVER wins and she just makes herself look like a big fat skank???

Back to the Oscars - I predict that my Oscar Night attire will be my Damn Jammies. Sad thing is, I'll probably look a lot more put-together than some Highly-Paid Celebrities will.

So I went to my local Blockbuster today and, on a whim, bought some Milk Duds. They were CRUNCHY. Uhhhhhhnnn... So I shared them with the little boys, and Ry, God love him, said "I have one stuck in my teeth! Oh, I know how to get it out... I'll eat another one!" That's Mommy's form of Junk Food Logic flowing through those circuits, my friends. And also, he's been casting Harry Potter spells on everyone by pointing a Tinkertoy and shouting words that sound intimidatingly Latin, like in the movie. I taught him to yell "GLUTEUS MAXIMUS!!" It's funny. He's yelling "BUTT!!"

I thought of a follow up to Gluteus Maximus, "Carpe Gluteus!" Yep, get that boy running around yelling "Sieze the ass!"

With my luck, he'll say it at his Pre-school and the Baptists will call CPS on me.

Dang, If I had a nickel for every time one of my kids has busted me for saying something they shouldn't have heard me say, I'd be typing this from Maui right now. The most memorable came right after the Rams won the Super Bowl. Suffice it to say that I get kinda potty-mouthed when I watch football.

But maybe I'll use that Carpe Gluteus spell myself.

Congratulations on your Noodle win! I can't tell you haow diappointed I become at the finding of crunchy Milk Duds... that is so sad...

Oh I know! A crunchy Milk Dud is as bad as biting into an apple and finding a worm in it. Or half a worm.
