So I was going back through my LJ looking for something specific, but then I got sidetracked and forgot what I was seeking.

Just found this, which looks like the last thing I wrote about my Dad before he died. (About 6 months before.)

This makes me laugh.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________



"Dad tells me My 4th grade nephew and a group of other boys got in trouble at recess for talking about having sex with Lady Gaga.

And I said, "You know...yuck...so inappropriate and creepy, but on the other hand, these are 9 and 10 year old boys. Boys talk about gross stuff when they think no one's around. I know it's a private Christian school, but still...I don't think this makes them public enemies..."

(It's easy for me to say that because it's my nephew. If it were CR, totally different story, mostly because I'd be so damn embarrassed.)

And Dad says, "Sure, I told him it was unacceptable and inappropriate talk, and he was sternly punished. But--'Lady Gaga?' I said to him. 'Son, if you're going to get in trouble anyway, have some taste. Julianna Margolies, maybe.'"

OMG, he's such a trip."

Two things that are a LOT harder to find than I anticipated:

Girls' size 6 or 7 leather jacket. Leather, pleather, expensive, cheap, I don't even care anymore.
I just can't find one that's not funkily styled.

Geode. Jane wants a geode. They have 'em on Amazon but they're break-your-own, and they're like an inch and a half diameter. I'm thinking she probably wants one of those baseball sized suckers.

Where are all the funny bitches? [Aug. 6th, 2012|01:17 pm]

So I've read and re-read Jenny Lawson's book, and I've read all the Laurie Notaro books and Mindy Kaling's, and I tried to read Tina Fey's book, Kindle sample, but didn't buy it because 5 pages in she'd already mentioned being slashed by a stranger in her own yard when she was 5 years old and made a passing reference to John Wayne Gacy.
I know it wasn't her intent, but sorry, you can't freak a parent out that much that early on in the book.

So who else is funny? I don't mean provocative highbrow social commentary funny, I mean like Jenny Lawson's story about being stuck in her bathroom and what her cat did. Side-splittingly, laugh helplessly or at least chuckle out loud funny.

I can't find anything else.
Why is there so much romance and dumb s&m smut but no funny, sarcastic, personable, quirky, clever women out there?

This is the part when I suggest that you write your own e-book, Betsy. Maybe a compilation of your funniest LJ posts and/or columns.

Have y'all seen the Anderson Cooper giggling thing?

OMG, amazing! He sounds like a 5 year old girl.

Whole vid's kinda long, but he starts losing it around 2:28.

Want a stamp? [Aug. 20th, 2011|12:22 pm]

This Etsy seller carved the most perfect, intricate stamp of my logo, small enough for biz cards, for like $15 or something insanely cheap like that.

She's really nice and helpful too.

So if you want a stamp of your logo, or for your kids (she'll help you choose from a bunch of fonts) or family or whatever, go check her out!

Any good backpack brands, other than LL Bean and Lands End?

Jane wants something "really pretty."

Rolleyes.

I just want it to not fall apart.

Hilarious, in an I-want-to-throttle way.

Remember that song Days Go By by Dirty Vegas?

The funky, fast car commercial song?

Pandora just kicked an acoustic version up on the Amos Lee channel, and it's AWESOME.

Have you guys ever seen Ted the Lawyer from Scrub's acoustic ballad version of Hey Ya?

I really wish they'd released a "real" version of it without the episode narrative.

It makes me happy.

Roddy puts May to bed, and he has to be up at 5 am tomorrow morning, so I gave her some antihistamine. Figured once wouldn't hurt.
But girlfriend went the other way.
:)

Holy crap, she's wearing grooves into the floors, running around like a madwoman.

Crap-I think she got into the bathtomm
