Katcha’s started something new. “No thanks!”. Since he’s not quite two, it sounds like “No santz!”, but it’s the same thing.
“Do you want a blue Pop Tart?”
“Come here so I can check your pants.”
(Which is kinda dumb. If you think you need to check a child’s pants, you just need to change the diaper. No checking needed.)
“It’s time for bed.”
This weekend, the Little Woman and I watched The Princess Diaries. It was pretty much what I thought it was going to be. Just a cute little movie. Anne Hathaway is a cute kid. I think I liked her feral hair better than her slick princess hair.
The video box pointed out the Julie Andrews is an Academy Award® winner. The little type on the bottom admitted it was for Marry Poppins in 1964. But it was for “Best Actress”. At least there was that. Sometimes the video box will say “Hey! Lookie! This guy in this movie won an Academy Award®!” Then it turns out it was for “Best Supporting Actor in 1972” or “Best Use of Nipple Clamps in 1985.” (I know. There’s no such award for “Best Use of Nipple Clamps”, but maybe there should be. And I also know there’s one or two of you who actually know who the best supporting actor was in 1972. Now it’s a game to see who can say it first. Here’s a hint: I have no idea.)
After watching the movie, I think I have to put Hector Elizondo in my list of “Guys who always have good performances”. Right along with Denzel Washington and Harrison Ford.
Herman Munster wrote children books. Not actually Herman Munster of course. It was Fred Gwynne. Back in the 80’s he wrote and illustrated a series of kids’ books. From the Library of Congress Summary: “Humorous text and illustrations introduce a variety of homonyms and figures of speech.” They are pretty clever. And heck, if they’re good enough for Congress, maybe you should look at them too.
I can’t wait for the Special Anniversary Edition DVD of my life to come out. Just for the extra added scenes, and the improved special effects. That would so be cool. The Director’s Cut would be nice too. What with the audio track that says what the hell was going through their head scene by scene. I could only hope it’s the unrated version with more sex and nudity.
I didn’t wear any green for St. Patrick’s Day.
