I love the movies. It’s movie season. I do love the Oscars. It’s such fun to see the beautiful people out in their beautiful clothes, but when I was watching the Oscars I realized how much I just love the movies. I love to sit in a theater and watch a movie. It’s relaxing. It’s escapism. It’s just plain wonderful. This year I saw Hugo. It was so great and the Help also super. It bugs me when people say they just don’t make good movies anymore. Really! That’s impossible the movies are bigger and better than ever. I loved this year’s Best Picture – The Artist. For anyone who has ever said they don’t make good movies anymore go and see the Artist. It’s a good old fashioned movies. It’s a silent movie, god forbid! It’s just superb and I’m glad it one. I’ve seen most of them and this year they really got it right. Anyway I guess people do lie about seeing those classic movies to avoid people giving them a hard time. The Top 3 lied about movies are 2001 A Space Odyssey. I think I saw it but I thought it was kind of boring. Don’t shoot me. A Clockwork Orange came in 2nd. I saw it and that’s one that has really stuck with me over the years. Very disturbing! Still see it – creepy and classic. And Casablanca. Everyone’s seen that or it they haven’t they’ll lie to you about it.
Do you remember the first time you thought ‘Hey I’m a grown up’. I just talked to your mid-day girl Sandy and she’s finally moving out of her parents house but she said she’s still coming home to do her laundry. She said she’d really feel all grown up when she does her own laundry and her own apartment. I remember feeling really grown up when I bought my first furniture, which wasn’t really furniture but a rug from the room I rented in San Francisco. I still have that rug and I really felt pretty damn grown up. According to men’s health one of the things that happen when you grow up is that uninterrupted sleep is more valuable than staying up late. How true and sad in a way. I used to love staying up all night long, well I still do except now that I’m a mom it’s a little harder, but I do love seeing the sun rise in the morning after a long night out instead of seeing the sunrise on my way to work in the morning. I remember what my girlfriends mom said..she said you know you’re getting old when your watching the game and the umps look young. How true. Anyway always try to keep that inner kid inside you and never entirely leave never, never land.
Is Hansel and Gretel just too scary for kids. My son and I read it not too long ago and it was kind of scary and my kid has an active imagination so of course there were nightmares and stuff. I know we read the stuff but it is nice to shelter the kids a little. I guess there was a survey of parents and 2 in 3 parents aren’t reading the old fairy tales because they are just too darn scary. Here’s the banned ones. For the record I’m against banned books. Books should not be banned. Books should be read, discusses, digested and sometime it’s uncomfortable but that’s life. We just hate to be uncomfortable but that’s wear true creative begins. On that note these are on the banned parents books…..Goldilocks and the Three Bears at number 9. Think about it Goldilocks really was a brat. Rumpelstiltskin and Rapunel. Did you see the new Disney movie. It was a little scary with the mean witch, but why is that so bad to tell you’re kids sometimes people seem nice but they really are only acting nice because they want something from you. Cinderella, Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood all make the list. And so did Jack in the Beanstalk. This story has always troubled me because Jack is really the bad guy, think about it Jack invades the Giants space and steals from him. He should not be rewarded. But still worthy of discussion. What do you think?
The Voice is all the rage! In fact it beat American Idol this week. Of course being on right after the Super Bowl definitely helped. I do like it though because it’s supposed to be more about the voice, the singer instead of the image. In fact Mix 106.5’s own Angel Taylor is on Adam’s team this year. She played at one of our Mixxers last year and deserves the break. Good Luck. That’s what’s so cool about those kind of shows, it really helps kick people’s careers into gear. That’s cool. Of course I love Steven Tyler and JLo as judges on American Idol but I do like the judges on The Voice too. Christina Aguilera says it’s quite the boys club over there too and she has to be a pretty strong girl to deal with the boyishness of Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton. I guess Blake is the manliest of the men – duh! I don’t know if Cee Lo is changing any of his behaviors but Adam says he’s going to be more courteous to Christina because as she says it’s a crazy locker room kind of situation on The Voice. Adam says he realized Christina is surrounded by dudes all the time and that has to be ‘something of a pain in the ass’, so with that said Adam says he’s going to stop farting in front of her. He’s so nice but that’s wear he draws the line she’s not giving up his burping which Christina calls nasty burps. Boys will be Boys!

Superbowl Weekend, are you going to a party? There are some party rules. If you’re hosting have a plunger handy. If the toilet gets clogged that would be bad so be ready to plunge. Have plenty of soft chairs – folding chairs can be hard on the tush after awhile. Have an alternative plan for half time. Hard to believe but not everyone likes Madonna so maybe have a football on hand so your gang can get outside for few minutes. We actually pulled a TV outside during our Superbowl party. I liked that it was nice to get some fresh air and still watch the game. Keep your expectation low because if you really care about the game your team might lose. I know so painfully when the Steelers lost to Green Bay last year and that really hurt! It felt a lot better when the Steelers beat Arizona and Seattle. Winning really never gets old. And from a personal note if you have to pee just pee, don’t hold it and don’t wear an adult diaper. Billy and I put diapers on to test them out today. I had to pee so bad but didn’t dare do it without a plan B so I sat on the toilet with the diaper on and I assure you it didn’t hold. The moral of the story is don’t count on adult diapers – I would have rather used a bush!
Cheers and have a fun Superbowl party!

I don’t know about you but I’d hate to be called a Creepy Cougar. Seems kind of desperate. The word is Demi Moore is a Creepy Cougar. I guess she’s been hanging out with her daughter Rumers friends and she was hitting on Zac Efron. He called her a creepy cougar. Sad! I guess she’s texting him a lot and he’s not into it. It does seem desperate. What she needs beside eating a sandwich is to try a new kind of dating. Did you hear that speed dating is out and Pheromone dating is in. People smell each others unwashed clothes to find the connection. Instead of your eyes doing the work your brain takes over. Here’s how it works. You wear a t-shirt to bed 3 days in a row and don’t wear deodorant. Then you bring the shirt to the party and the opposite sex smells it. Who know maybe a major smell a thon is the way to hook up – just scratch and sniff.
