Who Knew?

That theatres now have headrests on the seats? Wow. I was digging those! We (the husband and I) went out to the movies last night for our anniversary, which is today. He had to help his sister move tonight so we went a day early. We saw Superman Returns and it was great! I won't go into details since it just came out Tuesday but a couple favorite lines of mine were:

Kitty Kowalski: "Didn't there used to be two of them?"

Lex: "What did my father used to tell me?"
Kitty: "You're losing your hair."
Lex: "Before that."
Kitty: "Get out?"

I loved Kevin Spacey as Lex. I don't know that I like him when he plays a straight and narrow character. I loved The Usual Suspects.* Hey, I need to get that DVD, what the hell is wrong with me not owning that already? Sheesh.

We went to Buffalo Wild Wings afterwards and had a bite to eat and a couple drinks. I kicked some peoples' asses in trivia. It was fun. I wish that we could do something like this more often, like every couple weeks or three weeks. Sigh. Oh well.

I have a zit on my cheek that I can't cover up and I hate that. I have to work tomorrow and ya know what? I'm hating that too.

Coming up tomorrow: The husband finally has a blogging name. I know, you're all on pins and needles. Simmer down sistas!**

*Is this where The Kaiser got his name? Oh Queen??

**Clearly you can see the stress of the day has gotten to me, makes me all crazy like.


Queen of Spain said…
To make a VERY long story short...the Kaiser is short for Kaiser Ota VonMotorhead. Which came from a night of drinking with Sarah and Gabe (before the Goon Squad and before the Royal Family-and yes, he still puts bottle caps on his head like that...trademarked drinking move). In fact, all four of us have VonMotorhead names and consider ourselves to be the VonMotorhead clan.

Did I mention the drinking???

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

When was the first time that you realized that your home was not like other people’s homes? 

My house has always been different from other houses. I don't think I could narrow it down to a particular time. I recall not having friends stay over. Ever. I always stayed at all my friends' houses and called their moms "Mom".

Not a lot of my friends were only children so to them, I was the odd duck. Believe me, I *was* the odd duck. Just for a myriad of other reasons.

Having a family of my own, I really see the differences in houses. We are more relaxed with some things that would not fly in other houses. It gets loud in our house. Extremely loud. If I stopped them from being loud all the time, I wouldn't get a single thing done. I tend to jump in right away when the kids are arguing because it can, and will, quickly snowball into WWIII and someone (or both) will be crying. We let our son play the Wii, computer or DS for far longer than other parents or even the "…


Please do not ask me to email photos out, I get entirely too many requests for them. These are the ones that I have at home, thanks to a couple of sources.

This Has To Be Said

I haven't blogged in 8 months. We bought a house, still unpacking, school started. You know, life. I felt the need, the urgent need to blog about the Adrian Peterson situation today. I am full of all sorts of feelings and had to write about it. I would love to hear your thoughts on this whole thing. No really, I would. I don't feel I was a douchebag in my writing so all I ask is you not be a douchebag in your response. Thanks.

My thoughts on the Adrian Peterson situation (but first, some backstory):
I was spanked as a child. I'm pretty sure most of us that grew up in the 80s were.Until the summer between 5th and 6th grade I lived in Charelston, SC and from 6th to 11th grade, North Chicaco, IL. I have seen every form of discipline doled out on a child. I've seen spankings, beatings, hairbrushes smacked into heads, spoons hitting the tops of heads, whips, belts and even switches. I've seen it all.Most of you know that my son is named after a little boy who died from c…
