Well, with all the news/non-news I heard today I think this post is in order:

The song Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious says "So when the cat has got your tongue there's no need for dismay Just summon up this word And then you've got a lot to say" On that note here's a new challenge: During the next two days use the word Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious in a meeting and then come back here and tell us how you used it. I have a feeling I will be saying it alot.

BTW: Here are the rest of the lyrics:

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Even though the sound of it Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough You'll always sound precocious

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Because I was afraid to speak When I was just a lad
My father gave me nose a tweak And told me I was bad
But then one day I learned a word That saved me aching nose
The biggest word I ever heard And this is how it goes:

Oh, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough You'll always sound precocious

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
So when the cat has got your tongue There's no need for dismay
Just summon up this word And then you've got a lot to say
But better use it carefully Or it may change your life
One night I said it to me girl And now me girl's my wife!

She's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Play Houses of 2008

Last week at the mall that I was having lunch at I ran across these really cool play houses. I have no idea what the cost of these are but they are elaborate and must be upwards of 3000K. I loved them as a kid I would have died for one of these. Each one has it's own charm.

I love the log cabin. It reminds me of the woods, camping and great memories of my childhood. Sentimentally, this would be my pick.

The Beach house-totally cool! I would love for Sydney to have a beach house in our backyard!

The Victorian house that doubles as a boutique. This is cool. It gets points for being girly and for having an upstairs. We had a little attic in our playhouse growing up and it was cool although I have no idea how we even got into that small space-this is an actual second floor.

Lastly, we have the corporate office. Who would buy this for their kid to play in? Is this something that a CEO of a Fortune 500 would buy for their 5 year old? I thought it was hilarious. It was cool because it had a slide built in that came down from the 2nd floor and a rock wall.

Share The Joy!!!

Congratulations Andrew on your new first NEW car (truck)!!! It's awesome!!!

James' Jeans

So the other day James was comparing the length of his old jeans to his new jeans. He wears his old jeans ALL the time. During the comparison I pointed out that his old jeans had one leg significantly shorter than the other.

His jeans usually bunch up at the bottom and apparantly, he had never noticed. RO!

Big Aspirations or Child Labor?

I saw these toys last week at Toys R Us and they made me ponder the purpose of these toys. The way I see it there are only two possible options:

(1) The child has told their parent "When I get big I want to be a housekeeper?" or

(2) The parent has decided to get these "toys" in order to put their child to work. Child labor through trickery.

Next Season of the Girls Next Door?

Happy Birthday to Rachel and Dawn!

Both of their birthday's were mentioned in the Kim and Laura show episode 2 but I don't blame anyone for not getting to the end to see that.

How great it is to have your birthday on day 22 of the month! People with 22 day birthdays are indeed a special breed. Dawn, Rachel, Queen B, Me....are there others here????

I hope you both have a great birthday, I think Rachel's will be better than Dawn's since I just saw Dawn in the office and this is the picture I received from Rachel last night.

HCBC Competition #2-The Results Are In!

Here are the pictures and the results. Please note that David did not know the stories behind or who took the photos prior to judging.

Jenn Ann-Ambient light can be a real hassle when taking pictures, and this is a prime example. I simply can’t see enough to determine what is going on - if anything.

KFUG-Could this be a blatant attempt to curry favor? It worked. Can I keep this one?

Ine- In a word - adorable. Complete innocence. (This is a Kim insert-I wonder how adorable he will think this is when it happens to his bathroom)

Queen B-This is indeed a sad moment captured on (digital) film. It just makes me sad. Hooters really has great food.


Who knows.

Paula-I’m not sure if the focal point is the glasses or the bed - or both. I’m a little lost on this one. And for his comments on Paula's joke entry (which I don't have to share): Hysterically funny stuff, either alone or as a group - not so much. I knew this was an odd group of people to begin with, but this entry only solidified my opinion. Disqualified with prejudice.

Kim-I wouldn’t wear it, and I guess I hope Kim wouldn’t wear it, but I’m not sure a fashion faux pas would constitute a photography contest winner - at least in this case.

Andrea-What a pretty girl! This captures a memorable moment, but it is most likely staged. Still, I like it a lot.

Jane-The man’s purse seems to go with his shorts, and that is nice. However, what are they waiting to do? Does it even matter? What is in his purse? Interesting.

Lospace-Sleeping, Thinking Boy - How do you go wrong with candid photos of kids? Good stuff.

And the winner is.......Basically, the picture that confused me the least, and brought about the biggest reaction was “Baby in Bathroom with Toilet Paper on the Floor”.

(Another Kim Insert: I find it unbelievable that the winner is not an official member of the HCBC! WOW! Congratulations!)

The Newest Conservative

Burke Williams-Pure Relaxation

Tonight, Becca and I went for 5:30PM Pure Relaxation Massages. Heaven. Burke Williams (Our Favorite Spa) in Pasadena is just wonderful. I used to go relatively frequently but I have not been since before I was pregnant, last July. And actually on that visit the spa was broken-nice......

Today was fabulous! Of course after a year there was some change. For example they now have four types of beverages and two types of spa water. The traditional spa water with Oranges and Cucumbers (Yum) and a new one with Cantaloupe, Lemon and Rosemary (OK). I won't even go into what happened in the steam room. LOL

AND we got 20% off since I had a coupon AND we got a free $20.00 gift certificate. Looks like I'll be going back!!!!!

Lastly....On the sign below. Is it really for my security that I am not able to text message? And, how much am I disturbing other people by responding to email on my blackberry? Oh yeah, I forgot, I can't respond for my own security. I'm assuming Facebooking falls into the etc. I must admit, I love seeing Voicemail prohibited. (For the record I sent two texts, two blackberry messenger messages, updated my Facebook status and sent 5 emails.....oh and Becca and I were only told once to lower our voices.)

Two Towels For Sale in Malibu

Check out the picture below. The For Sale sign says "Bath Towels, $2.50". This man was in Malibu, with his wife selling TWO beach towels that were identified as bath towels. (No there were not additional towels in the bag, he had it open and there were none int there).

So I ask.....Who goes to MALIBU (The richest city in Southern California) to sell TWO towels to make FIVE bucks? The For Sale sign probably cost two bucks!

What is that? It's the awesome finishing time that Kevin had in the Malibu Triathlon this last weekend. It was exciting seeing him compete. Here are a couple pictures:

The Kim and Laura Show-Episode 2

Episode 2 of the Kim and Laura show is entitled "Stuck In Traffic".

College Football-Part 2

Poll Results for What College Football team should I root for?

37% USC (15 Votes)
20% UCLA (8 Votes)
17% None, College Football Is Dumb (7 Votes)
25% Other Team (10 Votes)

So Saturday:
USC spanked Ohio State (Sorry Kays)
ULCA was murdered by BYU
Maryland beat Cal
Oklahoma killed Washington
LSU spanked North Texas

Queen B: Did A&M play yesterday?

BTW: I still havent made a decision. The best part of rooting for USC is that mom usually cooks great food for the game.

This Shoe Season Is Terrible!

This year has brought terrible shoes. I hate open toed shoes, I hate super flat shoes with skinny tiny heals, I hate platform shoes, I hate shoes with patterns. The other day I went looking for shoes, take a look at some of the seasons best:

This is a serious huge crisis! My shoes are falling apart, I need new ones and these are the choices I have? UGH!!!!

May We Not Forget

On this September 11th may we not forget the vulnerabilities of our Nation and how lucky we are to live in the United States.

Thanks goes out to our military men and women who spend so much time in harms way and away from their loved ones to ensure that we are kept safe.

Let us thank God that there has not been an attack on American soil since 2001 and lets remember all who lost their lives on September 11th and all that have been lost in the fight for Freedom.
