Today Is Tuesday

So, Avee's at the stage where pretty much everything that comes out of her mouth makes me laugh. Sadly, it's coupled with her complete frustration with being laughed "at". I have to stifle SO MUCH, and it's painful. But these are things I want recorded, so I may just start every post with a quote, regardless of whether or not it matches the rest of the content.

Oh yeah. Like that's ever been a problem around here.

Bo: (whining) Ow! Ow! OWWW! Avee jumped on my back and hote my SPINE!!!
Avee: Oh Bo, I'm sorry. I didn't know you had a spine in your back!

I may have a crush on this man.

Okay, I don't have a crush on him. But I do love this show. I rarely see it, but I pretty much cry every time I do. It's called The Locator.

Speaking of crying. What is THAT all about!? I swear I get weepy at everything these days.

Like this, for example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lp0IWv8QZY (won't let me embed, but it's worth watching if you haven't already seen it)

And the other day I was waiting for Bo at the YMCA during his cooking class. I had my bff the Ipod Touch and I was watching an episode of The Unit. And I cried at the end. Sitting in a little lounge area of the YMCA, I CRIED. Seriously ridiculous.

Speaking of The Unit. I love that show. I have watched all four seasons of it, mostly on DVD because I discovered it halfway through the 2nd season and it always struck me as a kind of show you needed to follow from the beginning. So I rented the first two seasons and watched them all on DVD. It's near the end of the 4 season and I have loved every episode. To be fair, there may have been one or two episode I didn't love as much as the rest, but I'd be hard pressed to think of one. It's a really good show. And I really do like all of the characters. There is one character on there, Tiffy, that could sometimes be obnoxious, but I like her now. She did a really weird thing where she always talked loudly like she was making an announcement. Even in normal conversation. She must have gotten some feedback because she doesn't do that anymore. I wanted to write to her about it. It was annoying.

Does anyone else watch or love this show? I don't do a whole lot of hanging around water coolers anymore, but it doesn't seem to be as popular as I think it should be. Plus, who doesn't love that All-State dude. He's awesome.

I have probably 12 more bits of randomness, but my friend just came over to visit and I'm gonna be nice and stop typing while she's talking to me.

The other day, I cried at the end of Spy Kids 3. But I am pregnant. What's you're excuse?

InkMom said...


And InkMom was her name-o.

(Sing it like Bingo.)

I thought prego when you said weepy. I have started watching The Unit in the past few months. When I live in my own home once again, I plan to start at the beginning.

I can see it now
the Unit's show producer saying something like "Hey Tiffy, you have a letter from Nobody and she wants you to lower your voice a bit. She thinks it's a tad annoying."

Then Tiffy says "Oh, well if Nobody wants me to do it- then I will!"

This is what I was going to tell you when I came over, but you were busy typing on your computer while I was talking to you. Maybe next time you will open the slider and acknowledge me stalking you instead of ignoring me. :)

Man I'm tired, this is pathetic.
Love The Unit!! Good show!

What the crap? That show has been on for 4 seasons, where have I been we have been watching this season, no wonder we were lost a couple of times. lol. I love that show though.
Also, are you pregnant?

NOBO said...

AHAHHHAA! You're funny Howerton! I thought I saw your nose pressed against the glass...

I am not pregnant.

aubrey said...

oh dear. max has started screaming hysterically just like his drama queen older sister and it is ALL I CAN DO to not bust out laughing everytime he does it. even if it is naughty to scream at the mama.

omar said...

Bo goes to cooking class?! In addition to violin? If you think you're taking the "best well-rounded parenting of an eldest child" award from me, well, you had better think again.

Eve said...

I've never watched The Unit, but I DVR the Locator, and I cry everytime... but I'm pregnant too, and I cry at those kind of shows anyway.

About the All-State guy...I read a blog post ages ago about a husband who finally asked his wife, "Who's 'Stan' anyway? Was this like a series of commercials or something?" His wife had no idea what he was talking about until she realized that he thought the All-State guy was saying, "That's All-State, Stan." Now EVERY time I see one of those commercials, I think of that and laugh. It will change your TV viewing experience forever, now, won't it?

And I feel like crying, being replaced by iPod touch. I know - she's skinny, she's sleek, she does whatever you want her to. She's in your pocket. And I'm on the other side of the world. I just can't compete. Sniff.

Maybe you are crying so much because you are keeping so many Avee-induced laughs inside - the emotion has to get out somehow. (Orange you glad I didn't say you are pregnant?)

Sarah said...

thinks for the youtube clip.. can't wait to see if she wins the entire thing.. I don't watch unit but I did get caught up on "rock of love" "for the love of ray j" "i love money2" my guilty pleasure

Bubbles said...

The Unit is pretty much the awesome-est show evar!
And I thought you were pregnant too.

MommyJ said...

so, if all your commentors think you are pregnant does that make it so?

I've never watched the unit, and I've never see the locator... isn't that Troy Dunn?

I cry all the time at stupid stuff.

megachick said...

bawled through the hannah montana movie. not really a crying movie, but apparently i wasn't the only one who did.

SAHM Scrapper said...

It doesn't help to quit typing only to be on the phone the rest of the visit!!!

Bryner Family said...

Ok, I don't have a desire to cry but for some reason I wanted to see what made you cry and now I'm sitting here crying. It is amazing that the funny woman comes out and everyone is against her and then she blows them away. Awesome! Although next time you say something makes you cry, I'm not clicking the link. :)

Ok, love this post! Live has been so random the last few weeks!
The Locator... totally awesome and cry worthy. Kind of intereting to think of him as a bishop. Kind of cool.
The Unit... cool show! Don't get the chance to watch it all the time, but I ask around and catch up as much as I can. LOVE the All-State Guy!
Hang in there Avee! Your mother will not always be gufaw-ing in your face! Silly mommy!

Tori :) said...

I thought preggers too. Hmmm.... what are you not telling me?

I hope Avee didn't get in trouble of hurtin Bo's spine since she didn't know he had one.

No Cool Story said...

Ok now I'm totally expecting you to cry on Thursday.
