This quote sums up all 14 conversations I’ve had today. And it’s only 11am.
People are batshit crazy. Myself included. Am I wrong? Do you find people to be looney too? I’m talking to you dude in the white jeep who thought I was racing him at the light! I wasn’t. And by the way, IF I wanted to, my Subaru would leave your ass in the dust. FYI.

I asked my boy last night what I should write about on my blog
since I’ve promised to not slack off so much.
He said,”you should always write about Lexi.”
Then he spent the next 10 minutes going through all her amazing qualities:
She’s beautiful. She’s clean. She’s purrrrry. She’s his. Blah Blah Blah.
I asked him to go take a picture of his perfect cat.
And he did. And the picture is perfect too.
Now I’m annoyed.
And jealous. I think/know/am sure that he may love her more than me.
Look at her smug face. She knows it too.
And she’s accomplished something I thought could never happen.
I’ve written a cat post.

My family is a bunch of YouTube junkies. They are constantly looking at videos for the following: how to beat levels on Lego Batman, do a perfect waterfall braid, put in a new sink fixture, learn how to play “Dominic the Donkey” on piano, how to tell if you have termites etc. Once in a while, they’ll show me a video that they think I’ll like. Flash mobs are a favorite of mine, as are crazy wedding dances and proposals. Basically anything that involves music and a group dance-off – which I’m all about.
This week I found something on YouTube that they hadn’t seen. It’s been all over the morning shows – I’m probably late to this party – but I wanted to share.
Here’s the quick set-up:
There’s a prank show in Brazil that only does elevator gags. I’ve seen the other ones, which are funny, but not as mental and deranged as this one (I like my humor spiked with mental and deranged sometimes, sue me).
I also knew it was a winner when it reduced my husband to a puddle of laughter. For extreme clarification, my 14-year-old would like to point out that she had already seen this video and that I didn’t introduce anything new to her. Ah hem.

When I first met my man, 1,000 years ago, we went to the movies every Friday night. Rain or shine. Good movie or bad. We have always loved the movies. Then all kinds of stuff happened. The kind of stuff that happens to everyone. Work. Babies. The urge to sleep when you have an extra 2 hours.
Now that our kids are giants, we are slowly getting back to those days of popcorn glory – kinda.
Long intro to start a movie review eh?
Last night, yes a Sunday night, we went to the movies! And because it was a school night, we grabbed a friend to ease the guilt.
I give it 2 thumbs up! Are those dudes still around?
Smart, funny, and nerve-racking. Will they make it/won’t they make it.
The CIA runs a covert operation pretending to be a movie production company to rescue 6 trapped diplomats in 1979.
Ben Affleck. Brian Cranston. Alan Arkin. How can you go wrong? Ben had me at The Town, and ofcourse Cranston can do no wrong for me post Breaking Bad – and Arkin. He was one of my favorite things about The Slums of Beverly Hills and Little Miss Sunshine.
I won’t go into all the details that make the movie so clever and entertaining – you can google that. But I loved it and I think you all should see it. The end.
(the title of the post refers to a funny line Arkin says when someone presses him to explain the title of the movie. Old men saying swear words. Hysterical)

My favorite bad movie was on last night. Step Mom. I know. It’s awful. I love it. I had gotten home late from work – everyone was fed (sort of) and sleeping (playing with electronics illegally in their room). My husband was in REM sleep by 10pm. I was all alone with the TV.
You know when you’re aimlessly hunting for something to watch and you hit the jackpot? No? You’re out living life and working out? Whatever.
Well I was thrilled to find it on. Have you seen the film? It’s about a woman who gets engaged to a man with 2 kids and becomes….you guessed it…..the Step Mom. Except – there’s a twist! The actual mom gets cancer and the family is forced to get along – stale, predictable dialogue ensues. I loved every second of it.
Do you have movies that you have to watch when they are on? Movies that you just cannot turn off? Groundhog Dog? Pretty Woman? Jaws?
