What are you babbling about you may ask? Well let me tell you.
yesterday Mark popped in a movie and in the beginning there was a promo that looked like March of the Penguin. Now I loved March of the Penguin. It was so sad and sweet and makes you just ache at what the poor creatures do to just exist.
Now they have coming out on dvd Farce of the Penguins. I find this very disturbing. Kids are going to want to see this because they will be pushing it on TV and they aren't going to realize that its not really for kids. And why oh why is there a need to make a parody on a documentary based on nature like this?? And if you look at the star voice over line up it has A LOT of big named Hollywood Stars in it.
Now I like a good laugh just as much as the next gal but this just rubs me the wrong way for some reason. You have to see the promo to understand I think so it is here.
Let me know what you think of it please.
(disclosure I am sure that if I had watched this before march of the penguin and they never came out with the first version and it wouldn't entice kids, it would be pretty damn funny)

So here is the deal with the bathroom. As I painted the ceiling, the popcorn crap above the tub rolled off with the paint roller. There had been a small area where the kids had splashed water on the ceiling two years ago, but nothing that we thought a coat of paint wouldn't solve. WRONG So I bought one of those kits at Lowe's that you spray on and it puts new popcorn crap on. UMMM YEAH well obviously it was made for a man to use not thinking of a woman ever trying to do something herself. The handles on the nozzle that you apply pressure to in short 2 second bursts are too far apart for me to push on in that position that quickly haha anyway it looked like a volcano erupted on the ceiling. It was dripping down all over the tub haha. So I patted it to make it look more natural. By that evening 1/2 of it had dripped off and there were huge WET SPOTS. Oh and the color was more of a grey than the white I had hoped for.
So anyway this is what it looks like a week later. I am so fed up that I think its just going to sit like this for another week or two. Who cares at this point. I am opened to any suggestions on how to fix this other than scraping off the entire ceiling and painting it. I thought about breaking up some Styrofoam and rolling in glue and smashing up there and repainting it.......... roflmao what do you think? would that work??

So we started sewing class. Its a pretty good deal in the fact that someone else is teaching her how to sew, not in my house, and its only $12.50 for a two hour session. So the projects have begun.
the first class yielded this jewel
Or this one for $24.60 ! (ok I actually like this and am thinking of ordering one) haha

Here it is again
So I guess I can see why she isn't coming

No this isn't a murder scene. (Although I suppose the thought of murder crossed my mind)
What does this look like to you??
Mark said it's a Margarita night gone bad. No that's not it.
Finger painting perhaps........ nope wrong again.
Tragic accident shaving? WRONG
No No No....... in fact this is my bathroom in my house. I had a candle burning on the back of the toilet (like I do EVERY DAY) and beautiful wonderful Hannah accidentally knocked it off. Who knew wax could FLY!!!
I couldn't be too mad because I was in my room when I heard the crash, Hannah's quick in take of breath, you could sense the terror in her, and then the screaming for her sister to come quick its a mergency.
You could hear Ashley running, close the door and then the OMG WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!!!. Then Hannah's quiet pleading to "shhhh they will hear us" and "Quick grab a towel"
Now at this point I rolled over to Mark and said what do you suppose all that is about ? His response" Get your ass up and go look" well by this point I remember............ I never blew out the candle.........Oh no she couldn't have.........? could she???
Oh yes as I open the door that is what I saw......... Sparkle Cinnamon Yankee Candle dripping off the toilet. Fun Fun. So of course the girls are standing in the tub trying to be still. Possibly to throw me off by thinking that I now had little girl statues in my tub?? Hmm I don't remember that being there when I showered 20 min. ago.............
Naturally I tell Mark that he HAS TO SEE THIS. He of course said he was comfortable and did he really need to get up? Oooh Yeah baby this is a new situation we have here.
so the question of the day is................ how the h-e- double hockey sticks do you clean this up???
My solution much to my dislike is to scrape the old paint off and I guess its time to getting around to painting the bathroom. I have only put it off for 2 years now...................
I will keep everyone posted on the status of operation wax clean up!

OK so some of you may know that we are doing both the Nexflix and Blockbuster programs. We are comparing to see which is the better deal. So far Blockbuster is winning Hands down.
We got Little Miss Sunshine in the mail yesterday. I don't know why exactly I picked it other than I kept seeing the promos for it and it looked intriguing.
So last night I popped it in the DVD player. From the first frame it had me hooked. Mark as well, he had just pulled the comforter over his head to go to sleep as it started.
I am not quite sure what it is about this movie but by the end you are tearing up chanting "go Olive, go."
I laughed my butt off in some places and felt so sad in others. I think its just plain real. You can relate to the simple characters in different ways for different reasons.
So in short, if you have seen the cover, and thought "hmm what's the big hoopla about", rent it, watch it, cheer Olive on!

We tried to get Ashley in last year but didn't make the cut. As we all know I have no luck BUT I am praying that since winning the DC Trip, that my luck has maybe changed a bit. Now my only worry is they have 52 kindergarten spots and who knows how many 7th grade. Heck if any. But then the other option would be haha Ashley gets in by some miricle and Hannah doesn't. That would be fate's sick joke!
So anyway I did the tour today and it's still the same good school it was last year haha. And they don't have uniforms! Miss Hannah would love that.
