“What if he gets hurt? Breaks his arm? What if he has internal bleeding and I’m not there?” -Things I Say On Date Night That Are Not Fun Or Sexy
Recently On The Bandwagon
After all the hoopla, I finally broke down and watched PBS’s Masterpiece Classic, Downton Abbey.
Obviously you were right and it’s amazing.
Austin finds it mildly entertaining too, though he doesn’t appreciate the adopted phrases I now use around the house. Like – Would his lordship like a snack? Because her ladyship feels quite tired. Quite tired, indeed.
First Birthday Cake Ideas for WTB
I am 30% sure I could pull that off.
I’m pretty sure Mindy Kaling and I are destined to be best friends forever. I laughed the whole way through her memoir and am about to sit down and read it a second time. Yeah, it’s that funny.
A quote from my favorite chapter of the book, to wet your palette.
“Teenage girls, please don’t worry about being super popular in high school, or being the best actress in high school, or the best athlete. Not only do people not care about any of that the second you graduate, but when you get older, if you reference your successes in high school too much, it actually makes you look kind of pitiful, like some babbling old Tennessee Williams character with nothing else going on in her current life. What I’ve noticed is that almost no one who was a big star in high school is also big star later in life. For us overlooked kids, it’s so wonderfully fair.”
Recently when Baby Daddy leaves in the morning, Waylon crawls to the door and sobs hysterically. This leads me to believe that either a) he is an incredibly clingy baby or b) I am incredibly boring.
Recently 70 Degrees
Have I ever mentioned how much I hate winter?
Oh that’s right, I have. Which means when it’s 70 degrees for the first time in a long time–we get a little excited and spend all day outside.
FYI: Dog Parks = Free Entertainment
If you have Twitter, Facebook, or The Internet–you’ve probably already watched this incredible 30 minute video on Joseph Kony, leader of the brutal Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda. When I first watched it, it was around midnight and I was in bed ready to go to sleep. I made it about ten minutes in and then immediately paused it to first stop crying and then to forward it on to two of my best friends with a very dramatic message attached about this awful situation. They replied the next morning with nods of agreement but also with what I call a “morning perspective.” I admit I felt a little silly. I think it’s valid to be outraged, but overall–I’m just another person adding to what has been dubbed “slactivism” –an epidemic in this country (and something I’m fully aware I’m part of).
Basically, it’s complicated.
Recently An Adventure
Carrie and I are starting an Internet Radio Station.
It’s been in the works for a few months now, but I figured I should mention it sometime since you and I are becoming such good friends.
You can check out our playlists at www.littlecityradio.com
We have a long way to go, but we’re excited about it. I hope you are too.
One Year Ago
(Baby Daddy’s debut on the blog)
It’s short, but worth it.
Music Video Progress
I recently wrote to an artist about making a music video out of his song.
He wrote back today with a big fat y-e-s.
