Did y’all see my guest post yesterday? if you haven’t, go check it out. (i’ll wait. hum de dum.) we’re discussing Ripa-gate and Rosie O’Donnell taking it too far. we’re also discussing how the first time i’ve lost weight on this south beach mess was right after i ate a huge, gooey and delicious cinnamon roll. 3.5 pounds down. but, alas, after allowing myself to indulge at last night’s annual thanksgiving potluck jamboree, i’m only 2.5 pounds down. (i also haven’t watched survivor yet…thus no recap…apologies, apologies)

this morning we must discuss my daughter’s newest obsession. “ma boot!” She discovered one of Emily’s Barbie’s boots. It’s not an exciting discovery, by any account. but, folks, she loves this boot. she puts it on her finger. and walks around all. day. wearing. it. on her finger. and announces with glee “ma boot!”

no, i’m not kidding.

dude, kids are so weird.

Grey’s Anatomy

~ loved Cristina doing the voiceover this week.

~Alex and Addie eyelock!? i’m so NOT okay with that. yes, i’d like him to realize that he wants to be on the vagina squad. but – you heard it here first – if there’s any canoodling of any kind between dr. montgomery and dr. karev, i will stop watching this show.

~best line of the night? “she’s very little and you’re hurting her!”

~ my love for Addie grows and grows. “mancandy.”

~So, George finally grows a pair. it’s about freakin’ time. but the comment to Izzy? really, NOT okay. but she still annoys the freakin’ crap out of me. stop. whining. damnit.

~i still don’t know what to make of the burketina fiasco. did she finally realize that this was real, and that their little “team” could actually, really kill someone? and then she felt guilty just a little too late? she should NOT have told the Chief…but i think the blood on her face (and hands…macbeth) was too much for her to bear and she just panicked.  but Burke closing the door on Cristina? ouch.

i’m sorry to say that i did not make it to round 2 in the Canadian Blog Awards. (i know, WAH!) The top five from each category make it to the next round (the only poopy thing is that i one of the categories, i was 6th). go and vote. some of my most favorite blogging ladies are still in the running.

  1. OK – I wanted to post a comment on your guest post but it wouldn’t let me – Rosie/Ripa/Clay-gate – my 2 cents: Clay was trying way too hard that whole show and needling Kelly. The hand thing was the last straw. And it was embarrassing. Imagine anyone doing that to you at work? I would die. So then Rosie (who you know I love) called it a homophobic thing – totally OUTING Clay. OMG. What a nightmare.

  2. You were six votes shy of making it to round 2 for the family category. That’s nothing to toss aside. I for one am sorry I didn’t vote every day; if I had, you’d be there. My bad.

    Re: Grey’s… my wife and I noticed a very different approach in the writing and the production (esp. camerawork) last night. A lot more staccato and confrontational than usual. Also, from our recollection it was the only episode that Meredith didn’t do the voiceovers. I did not like that Cristina went to the chief because it didn’t happen until Burke had pulled rank/put her in her place. Now we’re left to resolve whether she went to the chief because:
    1. She was pissed at losing her “position” as Burke’s hands (shitty and petty)
    2. She was worried that Burke was assuming he was all fine and that he’d screw up (reasonable but not addressed)

  3. Great breakdown of last night’s Grey’s Anatomy episode, and yep, totally agree with Jeff, there’s going to be a lot to chew on leading on from this episode. Oh, and yes, loved the line: “…she’s very little and you’re hurting her!”

  4. Heehee – well, at least it’s just a barbie boot that she’s fascinated with:) I remember when my youngest discovered a box of tampons under the bathroom cupboard. He was fascinated with the box… Cried and cried until I finally emptied the box and let him have it:) He filled the box with his little toy soldiers and carried it around for days. Until it mysteriously disappeared… Ahem. Can’t imagine where it got to.

  5. Kids are weird! I love her studiousness while she examines the boot.

    At least she’s not putting it in her mouth!

    Pretty soon you’ll be fighting her for the phone or remote…or car keys.

  6. LOLOLOL at Isabella and “ma boot”! Too funny!!! Seriously too funny!
    Love that Macbeth allusion you speak of in your Grey’s commentary — very very wise observation! :)

  9. Hey, boots can be confusing, I know they are to me!

    Loved your Grey’s Breakdown, except George was pissing me off at the end, yes I know he’s worried about his father, who wouldnt be, but to be that much of an arsehole, on the turn of a dime is too much to believe.

  10. OK…I swear I left a comment on this last night suggesting you offer a can of large pitted olives…if she loves the boot, just think how she will love a black olive on each of her little fingers!

    Watched Grey’s last night and while I can’t commit that I will boycott, I am so not in favor of any Alex/Addie relationship beyond co-baby deliverers.

    I may be the most cynical one out here, but I think Christina did it to save her own professional ass. Remember, she is very competitive and driven. She wanted to make sure that she didn’t go down with the Burke ship. Remember, she was more concerned that “George knows” and how they were going to deal with it than the fact that Burke would be operating on George’s father.

    Maybe the actor who plays Burke is a method actor…Burke is exactly the arrogant kind of SOB who would make an inappropriate homophobic remark.

  11. Hey, I remember my son finding my sister’s barbie boot. It does fit so well on tiny little chubby fingers! Adorable shots!

  12. The GA episode was great…and I’m really curious what’s going to happen. But not with Alex and Addie. I think that’s somewhat inevitable.

  13. Hi, just happened on your site and so love the baby fixation your little one has going on.
    I second the comments of JoAnne. My boys have discovered my tampon boxes and are certain I am hiding candy from them! I keep them locked up now.


    Comment by Amy on November 26, 2006
  14. PS: that was the tampons I lock up now, NOT THE KIDS!


    Comment by Amy on November 26, 2006
  15. Oh, but I want Alex and Addie to do the humpity bumpity! They would make an interesting couple.

    And I loved that “she’s very little” line. Also liked, “I thought I was your friend” “I thought you were my surgeon.” Ouch.

  16. [...] y’all remember my finger-boot-wearing, ball-popping-toy loving, all-food-eating, Dora-obsessed, bald-headed baby? [...]

  17. Your daughter is SO damn adorable! Ah!!! And I agree with EVERYTHING you said about Grey’s (I’m finally caught up and can read your comments about it). I hated Addie from day 1 but now, dammit! she’s growing on me. Alex and her…NO NO NO!!!
