Has it really been a week?

I just realized how long it's been since the last time I wrote something on here. I guess I've just been in a fog since the brilliance of the Dylan/Costello concert... I don't know. I do know, however, that very little has happened in my life since the last post, but I wont let that stop me from writing something. While nothing has happened lately, I have seen more than my fair share of Rockford Files episodes lately... DVR is a beautiful thing. I watched 4 episodes a few nights ago & loved every minute of them. I think my love of that show goes back to my youth when I would watch it in syndication w/ my dad on Saturday afternoons. It might be more closely connected to my youthful love of Support Your Local Sheriff though. If you haven't seen that movie, you definitely should. I got a copy a couple years ago, if anyone wants to come on by for a movie night. (Jean or Elizabeth... I'm expecting many quotes from the film in the comments section!) Speaking of movies, I watched one recently w/ Shannon called Perfume. It doesn't feature the genius of James Garner though. After the rather drawn-out voice-over narration in the 1st 20 minutes, it was pretty cool. It's about a guy in Paris in the 18th Century who has an amazing sense of smell & wants to capture the essense of woman in a perfume... in order to do this, he goes on a killing spree, becoming a serial killer and offing about 15 beautiful young women.

In other news, I took the kids over to Kate & Don's for dinner a couple weeks ago w/ Stacey & her kids. We hadn't hung out in ages. (You all may remember, Kate is the one who gave me the mohawk last summer.) Of course, before the end of the night, red wine was spilled on the old Zidane shirt, but w/ quick thinking & a ton of Stain Stick, it survived just fine. What didn't survive, however, was Kate's little secret: she'd never heard of Tub Girl before. Well, Kate, this is for you. Be sure to save it to your hard drive for future reference!

The other thing I need to mention is that my daughter has started posting on her blog again... just a little plug for her site. It's cute, but the info she posted today is a bit out-dated.

I'm sure Kate will never ask about tubgirl every again! I know I won't. butts are gross.

Stacey said...

This may be too late, but...KATE DON'T DO IT! DON'T CLICK!

I don't generally think butts are gross, but that particular composition is a bit over the top. Er...bottom.

that is vile but it is like driving by a really bad car accident.

and honestly i do not remember that being brought up in conversation that night........ but i am really not surprised about this.

reticulatedmama said...

oh and i find it funny that they blurred out the vulva.

Stacey said...

I forgot that it came up that night, too, but of course Andre would remember anything that would give him an excuse to post that again.

You may as go all the way with it, put it out there--print up some greeting cards with that image, blank inside of course, so people could write their own heartfelt message.

Andre said...

Ohhh... we talked about it. You may not remember it, but you asked me to post it. I know I should have done it last week, but I just remembered yesterday.

Greeting cards is a pretty good idea. Or bumperstickers:
"My parents read "Visions of Ypsi, but all I got was this lousy bumpersticker w/ a picture of Tub Girl on it"

Elizabeth said...

"Damn, damn, damn".
"60 for who and 40 for who?"

I have seen part of perfume. It must have been on TV once. It looked really bad. I am glad Zidane survived and that Solstice has started posting on her blog again.

Stacey said...

Here is a bumpersticker idea:

In big letters: WWJGD? Underneath, in small: What Would James Garner Do? Read

I'd hate to smell Tub Girl's perfume essence.

Andre said...

What Would Tub Girl Do?

What you mean is 60 for you and 40 for me.
