A few things on my mind lately...

A few things on my mind lately:
  • Friday Night Lights. Do you watch it?? It's taken over our lives lately, thanks to the public library. Did you know the public library has tons of normal TV shows on DVD?? It does and Matt Serason and Julie Taylor are killing me! Not to mention, who doesn't have a crush on Tim Riggins? And Landry, the zitty teenaged Matt Damon? Do you watch it? I know I'm generally about two years behind the TV curve so it's okay if you're over it, but it's lighting up my life. We've busted through both seasons in an embarrassingly short amount of time.
  • Also, I think Levi Bristol-Palin's-Baby's-Daddy Johns(t)on is a real life version of Tim Riggins, only not as good looking or sympathetic. But still. And Riggins has a total Sawyer thing going on, which reminds me, I'm pumped for LOST.
  • Did you see this baby-had-a-fully-formed-foot-growing-out-of-its-brain story?!? Weird.
  • You know how you can "yearbook yourself?" Like, take your face and surround it with decade-appropriate hair and clothing and laugh about how you suddenly look like the sixties? Well, whenever I see pictures on facebook of elders I knew on my mission I get the giggles. Bc that's exactly what it looks like, like they yearbooked themselves into 2008. The awkward, well-scrubbed face I know so well suddenly has a nasty goatee or soulpatch, throw in a faux hawk, put them next to a mascara'd blonde overloaded with jangly jewelry and voila, 2008. It's incredible.
  • Have you seen this blog, men who look like old lesbians? Accurately named. The header is the best part. Enjoy.
  • Did you know that sometimes little kids have birthday parties at the Lion House? They really do. ChuckECheese it's not. We started brainstorming themed games kids could play there and while most of them are inappropriate to mention here, one reason I married my husband is because he suggested a version of Duck, Duck, Goose entitled "Widow, widow, virgin."

Oh, I've been a fan of FNL for a while. Love it. I want to be Tami Taylor!

We were pretty upset around here when this 3rd season has only been available on Direct TV, but God bless the Internet. You can watch season 3 episodes here:

Mona...um, JACKPOT. Thanks for sharing. And no kidding, Tami rocks. Whoever plays her is a champ, and she is the most authentic, nuanced character of the bunch by a mile.

One of the reasons I married my husband is because he makes wildly inappropriate Helen Keller jokes. So I feel you.

I haven't seen FNL. I've heard good things about it though.

And our library isn't so good with the vids. We have a VERY small amount to choose from.

The foot out of the brain story wouldn't work for me. I'll have to google.

And birthday's at the Lion House? You gotta be kidding me.

I did know that little kids had birthday parties at the Lion House! How you ask? Because I went to one. They served little sandwiches cut into triangles on antique china. After that we played musical chairs and were allowed to look at real live Mormon historical artifacts. That is until one of the little boys couldn't hold onto a gigantic jar of marbles personally owned by the Brigham Young family. The 150 year old jar shattered all over the floor and marbles went flying across the room.

That little boy was me, and the ghosts of Brigham Young, his 55 wives and 57 children have haunted me ever since. I was certain that would be the last Lion House birthday party for 8 year olds. Guess not!

lol thanks for the tip on the men who look like old lesbian blog. Just the sorta thing to send my husband into hysterics. Which is very needed at desperate times like these when we're staying up trying to put off the impending doom of a new semester. But at least it's the last one, right? By the way, if you want to see my blog, it's www.lizthompson.shutterfly.com.

I love Friday Night Lights. I think I was meant to live in Texas and date Riggins. Seriously.

Mrs. Clark said...

Hey, the only good vids WE get from the public library are from the Great Courses series.

This was hysterical. I loved Old Men who Look like Lesbians.

And--widow, widow, virgin--love it!

I like Tami but I really wish they would put her in more appropriate clothing. I'm not saying she needs to dress like a school marm but do principals really need their tits hanging out like that? Bugs me...
