It's the most wonderful time of the year for Tallulah

Tomorrow, Yayo will have something to do during the day....SCHOOL! I love this time of year.

Purchased in bulk this weekend:
  • No. 2 pencils
  • Big pack o' Bic pens
  • Lot's of spriral college ruled notebooks
  • Folders
  • Hilighters

The best thing of all: the all NEW Mead Composition notebooks with psychedelic Moire Patterns! I had to buy two...for .50 cents a piece it was a bargain I couldn't refuse. Seriously it's the coolest thing to happen to school supplies in years. Though all the kids want their silly kitschy Care Bear folders and stupid Strawberry Shortcake. Maybe the retro kids who listen to Led Zeppelin will appreciate the nifty new designs from Mead.

Yayo, pain of Tallulah's Existence

This is my son, Yayo. As you can see from his shirt, he's evil. I have just finished a heated discussion about a DRIVER'S PERMIT. I mean maybe I'm evil cause I look at him and I see my little puppy boy. The once cute and totally lovable boy has grown into a surly young man. Arrrghh. And I tell him he MUST study the information as given by the DMV. He thinks that the sample test is the test he's going to be given, I argue and tell him that is simply not the case. He tells me I'm old and I don't know how the whole thing works.

WAIT A SECOND...I'm not OLD...right?

I will tell you this...straight up dawg, the West Virginia drivers test is much harder than the California one. I myself was an idiot and studied only the sample test for my new driver's license and barely passed. I know my kid...he really needs to study. I can hear downstairs right this very minute....he's off trying to get old Dad on his side. Will he get the same lecture...wait for it...wait for it... wait for it....CHA CHING Dad totally backs up mom...Gawd Bless this Household and the adults who run it.

Teenagers are a total pain in the watch yo mouth.

I was a pure and virginal teen....right Yaye? No wait don't answer that one....

Congratulations Connecticut!

Tallulah Greets Connecticut

I live with a political junkie and have been sucked into many a primary. Last night was a doozy with such a close margin we were on the edge of our seats. As we watched the poll numbers come in, Cspan cut to Leiberman's concession speech and my husband jumped for joy. He's never even been to Connecticut. Just goes to show you, when you align yourself with evildoers and self appointed kings the dwellers in the kingdom may just boot you out. And boot they did. The only issue I forsee is when Leiberman goes Independent and runs separately from Lemont in November. Is Connecticut getting electronic voting machines by then ? What's Leiberman's connection with Diebold?

All I can say is the people of Connecticut sent a message. With margins so close, the state as well as country is still closely and bitterly divided.

Yaye's Movie Report: Steer Clear of This Watery Tart!

I'll get right to the point. Lady in the Water is a wretched, unholy mess. I am a big M. Night Shyamalan fan, and I even stuck with him through the uneven terrain of The Village, but this is beyond the pale. Shapeless, lifeless, meaningless drivel. PLEASE do not see this movie! Despite the excellent poster (stage right), capable cast (except for Shyamalan himself in a self-aggrandizing heroic role), and dearth of original movie ideas in the theater this summer, this soggy b***h needs to die a swift and bloody death!

Why the vitriol? Read the first three paragraphs of Roger Ebert's review and you'll get some idea.
