When I don't even know there is an MTV awards show on until the next day.  *sigh*  Just confirmation, I guess, if what is already obvious to all.  Ugh.

I may actually have to get with that whole Netflix thing if this comes to pass!!

New Gilmore Girls???  Be still my heart.  But oh no.  If Rory ends up dancing around Logan again I might not be able to watch.  I swear, I haven't even ever been able to like Cary Agos on The Good Wife.  *shudders*

This is my week to advocate for wearing helmets when you are on a bike or a scooter or whatever you ride.  Whether you are a child (usually it's required and yet I still see kids in my neighborhood with no helmets) or an adult (when it's often optional).  You never know what can happen.  I just found out that a long-time friend of the family who is a few years younger than me died in Seoul after a horrible bike accident on the road.  He was only going a short distance and wasn't wearing a helmet and after surgeries and a few weeks in the hospital, he couldn't hang on any more.  So, please wear your helmets.  And make your kids wear their helmets.  Even if the kid down the street doesn't have one on.  Thanks.

Just another quick note into the ether to say that head lice suck.  One of the kids brought home a raging case and now 2 more of us have it and there is daily combing in our future for the next 8 to 10 days or so.  Ugh.  This may actually break me.  We are really lucky we haven't had to deal with this before, but man, does this bite!  Off to vaccuum the car....

Everything my 10 year old plays on the viola sounds like Sheldon's "Soft Kitty" song. I wonder why that is.

I may have been the only one who noticed, but I was ridiculously excited that "I can't go on" from Smash was sung by Jennifer Hudson last night after the In Memoriam segment.  I know that they changed the words and such, but she killed that song on the show and it's such a good song.  It deserves not to die with the show.

I hardly ever see any of the movies involved in the Oscars, save some of the animated ones, but I did manage to see the winning short documentary about the veteran's crisis hotline and I was happy to see some fellow feds getting some recognition for the work they are doing.  There are a lot of feds out there doing really good things and getting tarred with the ugly brush because of who their employer is.

A long show last night, and no real surprises, as I understand it, but all in all, not too bad.

Happy Holidays to any LJ friends who are hanging out there in the interwebs.  I hope you have a happy and healthy 2015!

My holiday season is going a bit awry as my parents and brother were supposed to arrive tomorrow, and now my parents have had to cancel as my mom has some horrible pain in her neck and shoulder which the drugs don't seem to help and so driving in a car for a full day to get here is just out of the question.  I know she and my dad are really disappointed and so are the kids.  (Being in pain is certainly not the way to spend the holiday, either.)  I am disappointed too, but I am also trying to adjust my menu for all the food in my fridge from feeding 8 to feeding 5 or 6.  I don't know if my brother will come without them, so we may have a pretty quiet Christmas.  Not a bad thing, though.  Definitely would be more laid back.  I'm not sure it will feel very Christmas'y with 60 degree and rainy weather on Christmas Eve, but what can you do.  We will head for the in-laws to ring in the New Year.  I hope any of you who are travelling arrive safely!

Sending happy holiday thoughts your way!

This is a movie that I really like that I just don't see re-run often enough.  It was on last night and I was so pleased.  The cast is lovely and it is just so insane and the fake documentary set-up felt different then.  It always makes me laugh.  I highly recommend a re-viewing, if you can catch it.  And if you haven't seen it yet, what are you waiting for?

Long time no post.  I'm pretty sure almost no one is still out there, but I had this in my brain and there's reallly no other place to put it.  I was watching the show "Cristela" and I realized that Pelant is playing this intern at the law firm with her and he's all happy and insulated and not a serial killer at all (yet), and all I could think was Pelant.  It just seemed so wrong.  I am sort of expecting a Criminal Minds warp where he goes all workplace violence on Sam McMurray and his dim-witted barbie-doll daughter because it's Pelant!  I know there are other actors who I've seen on shows and not been able to get past a previous role, but I can't put my finger on any right now.  If anyone happens to see this and thinks of one, let me know.  Oh!  That lady who is the voice of Lisa Simpson!  She is always Lisa Simpson to me, whether she's in Herman's Head or anywhere else.  Poor lady.

We are off tomorrow to our 20th college reunion.  20th.  I am so old.   I know that the over 40 thing and the 3 kids thing, one of whom is a teenager should be a tip off, but sheesh.  My 25th high school reunion is next year.  Man.  Jillian is very excited to be going to college tomorrow.  Let's hope she actually has a good time.  I am going to be positive and talk to people that I may not remember since most of my close friends won't be there.  But in 5 years, Jarrett will have graduated from HS and be getting ready to go to college (!!!!!) and so this may be the only reunion that all of us go to.  I am so old.
