it was isabella, in the bedroom, with the pizza cutter!!

(by the by…i LOVED Clue as a kid. i always hoped it was Colonel Mustard with the candlestick in the conservatory…because why on earth would you choose to use a candlestick as a weapon…and what the fuck is a conservatory anyway? anyone remember the name of the dude who died?? anyone? oh, and the movie! don’t even get me started on the movie! love love love.)

should i be concerned that last night i found a pizza cutter and one of my shoes hiding underneath my elliptical trainer…in my bedroom?!

and when the husband said, “Isabella…you know that the pizza cutter is a knife…” she did her very best Australian accent, channeled her inner crocodile dundee and gave a very hearty…”That’s not a knife…THIS is a knife”

I think Emily was pleased with her High School Musical 2 cd that Tova bought, thinking she might *like* it.

she had a much better reaction to this hand-me-down gift than she did to the wii-mote my inlaws gave Emily and Josh to share. It was a good gift, since it was something I they needed to play Mario and Sonic at the Olympics (i suck ass, by the way, at pretty much anything other than ping pong…)…but Emily doesn’t do sharing. at all.

well, she doesn’t have to worry, because NO ONE wants to share that cd with her. at least it’s not the dvd; I don’t have to look at the manpris on Zac Efron…

so, i’m the WORST pimp ever. the husband, yes, MY husband, published himself a cookbook! and i was supposed to tell you all about it (i was excited to tell you all about it) and things came up…like pizza cutters in my bedroom and Dolly Parton’s boobs and Emily and the wieners…and i plum forgot.

but now i remembered (albeit almost getting divorced in the process….) and you can buy it! here!

if you haven’t already, please check out my new entertainment site on urbanmoms.ca, Juice. today is tuesday tease day…and i’ve got a little Friday Night Lights love. and a little Hayden Panettiere before she was ClareBear.

  1. Seeing Emily and hearing your feedback is enough justification to prolong the delay in teaching our daughter how to operate the CD player herself. I dread that day like no other.

    And that’s pretty cool that Gav published a cook book, I must say.

  2. Can I tell you how much I loved clue? We still have it and I can’t wait till Matt is old enough to play.
    My favourite person was of course Miss Scarlet.
    As for the movie … LOVE!
    I even had a clue birthday party one year.
    I’d kind of forgotten for awhile.
    That’s cool about the cookbook. Very cool!

  3. We should do something with Gav’s book on urbanmoms.ca…let me know.

    I LOVED clue! And still do. My 8 year old and I love to play it…until my 4 year old gets involved.

  7. LOVE Clue!! Last Christmas we had a Clue-a-thon when my parents, my Brother & his Girlfriend came to visit (embarassingly it lasted several nights). My hubby has a whole “matrix” he uses to figure it out (BTW, he Excel spreadsheeted our wedding too). Needless to say I never won a game.
    Oh ya, & the guy who was killed is Mr. Boddy (I’m a complete dork & even know it has two “d’s”)

  11. A big congrats to the hubs on the cook book Ali! And gawd… with all the overachievement going on in your household, I sure hope you two never worry about what your kids are going to be like as adults, they’re going to be perfect.

  12. I loved Clue too — so much that I bought it last year to play with Dave. It’s not as much fun as it was when I was a kid. *snort*

    Congratulations to your husband! That’s AWESOME!

  13. Gah! I LOVE Clue! And when I saw the thing about the movie, I was all, “MOVIE?! WHAT MOVIE?!” So I clicked the link and I discovered it literally came out before I was born. Like, 19 days before I was born, but still.

  14. The pizza cutter under the elliptical trainer is kind of the perfect place to keep it. I’m forever stuck on the thing when the pizza guy shows up with my double size pepperoni and cheese.

  15. I’m lovin’ the rockin’. Awesome. We have nightly dance-fests over here, to the tunes of Mr. Justin Timberlake.

    Congrats on your hubby’s book! I hope it does well :)

  16. Grill Interupted! Awesome!
    A conservatory is a big sun room where you grow plants. I don’t know why one would keep lead pipes in there.

  22. Ali I can’t believe you and so many others loved Clue. That was my favourite game once I got tired of beating beating neighborhood toddlers in Monopoly!

    Now if your husband’s book offers up some interesting flavourful recipes my husband will love it. The barbecue is his baby and he use to enjoy getting ideas from that TV guy King of the Q (or something like that) but then lost track of him.
