Random things to end the week.
1- Today is Michael Jackson's 50th birthday! Madonna turned 50 on the 16th! Can this be? In my mind I still see the one-gloved boy wonder moon walking in sequined outfits in MTV videos (remember when MTV actually broadcast videos?). I see the Material Girl in big tulle hair bows, torn tights and lots of gaudy pearlish/beaded jewelry. I think life was a whole lot simpler for both of them back in the 80's! Don't you agree?
2- The Caylee Anthony missing Florida girl case. I saw on Yahoo that now investigators are confirming that tests show there was evidence of a decomposing body in the trunk of her mother Casey's car. Meanwhile, Casey is out of jail. This case infuriates me. She is so guilty and has already been caught lying about her employment, the baby sitter's name, etc. Then she manages to go out partying on a regular basis while her child is "missing". Was this girl EVER truly a mother?
3- My football team was SHUT OUT last night on ESPN! How embarrassing! And two linebackers sent our first string quarterback to the hospital. I think it's going to be a very long season for the Wolfpack!
4- Mini#2 may be a future hoarder. Is it just my kid or does your kid smuggle items into his/her bed? Case in point, yesterday mini#1 went to wake up mini#2 from his nap (with my permission of course!) and he told me to "Quick, come look!" Upon my arrival Mini#2's bed looked mysteriously lumpy. I pulled back his quilt/comforter and there was his mini 4-piece drum set! He did at least unhook the cymbal and it was somewhat flatter than usual. But that's not all. He also had a book, an Atlanta Braves' batter's helmet and a baseball in his twin bed. My jaw was on the ground, but mini#2 just sleepily smiled at me and said "What?" like nothing was wrong with this!
5- We're going to two Labor Day parties Saturday in the neighborhood and then to the NC Zoo in Asheboro on Sunday where we'll meet my parents and brother. I have not been to this zoo in about sixteen years when I went with an old boyfriend. A lot has changed since then - at the zoo and in my life!
What are your plans?
