I changed the music to reflect Joely's taste. I also added a personal favorite, "the rainbow connection" Recently I fell in love with it again because it was sung on the Office in pig latin. But it's been a personal favorite for years. Here is a funny memory- I always associate it now with a very very young 12 year old Chris Mason. I can still picture his angelic little face and his proud mom! He Sang it at a Talent Show in I think 1985?? He was adorable up there with all his confidence. I wonder, does he still sing? Does he still know the song by heart? Does he remember the Talent show? Also why do I only remember his performance and not any other?

Robert will be Happy
BUT I'M NOT!!!!
I'm boycotting Dancing with the Stars this season, after Monday nights choice of music and the young kid trying to act sexy and the dominatrix/trannie outfits. I guess I"ve lost my sense of humor, but I DO NOT like the song "I kissed a girl" and it's wildy innapropriate for a show that sells itself as family entertainment. I guess the funny thing is that Lance Bass danced to it and he's not attracted to girls, so it was supposed to be tongue in cheek.
That song is hideous, I was listenting to a regular radio station instead of a cd one evening and it came on and I found myself singing along with it, I still can hear the chorus and it appals me! Seriously- and then my friend who lives in Blackfoot IDAHO, the potato capital of the world, tells me she passed the high school and saw two girls making out- this is in podunk Idaho--- I'm thinking that the media that makes this all mainstream is helping to encourage children- YES CHILDREN- to make lifestyle choices they are not equipped to make and will be very hard to come back from.
Stepping off my soapbox-
I'll be out of touch for awhile, we/I are potty training with Joely. So far I'm getting trained on her physical cues and although she had only one success she has had her accidents in the bathroom, so I think she'll be good to go pretty quickly, but it takes CONSTANT VIGILENCE, so I won't be able to e-mail, blog or basically use the phone for a couple of weeks, If you need me I'll be sitting on the side of the bathtub, cheering on the cutest little Mullens of them all.
