June 23 08

the answer to friday’s found porn is: “Mama, they are light sabers, of course…” [insert eye roll here]. so, no one got it right…but your answers killed me.

so, with this apocalyptic weather we are having, it’s become near impossible to make any sort of weekend plans. But, on sunday morning, since it was 84 degrees and sunny, we decided to head to the water park at Canada’s Wonderland. we packed the car, changed the kids, lotioned ’em up, finally found a parking spot. and it looked like this…

by the time we walked from the car to the park..

it was more like this…

so, went spent the next two hours at Chuck E. Cheese. i mean, sure, it’s no water park. but come on, it’s where a kid can be a kid. and where a kid can spend the entire time playing skee-ball…

no joke. the ENTIRE time. all of her tokens were spent there. *sigh* she. is. me. although i would have mixed it up with some Elvis pinball too. Josh, on the other hand, spent his tokens in about 8 minutes, playing only the games where he could win the most tickets. what he doesn’t understand yet is that you need about 4,500 tickets to win, um, some piece of shit that you can buy at the dollar store.

on the way home, though, that’s when the real fun began.

the matzo ball sized hail. the flooding. we barely made it home.

but it was this guy who i really felt bad for…


also…temperature when we got home? 54 degrees. that would be a 30 degree drop right there. what. the. fuck.

i am disturbed by this news story. you know the one. the teen girls and their pregnancy pact. possibly the most ridiculous part of this entire story is not the fact that their dumbass girls decided that because they are bored they are going to become mothers (huh?), but more the fact that the dad of at least some of these babies is a 24-year-old HOMELESS DUDE.

Emily is getting the “don’t make any pacts of any kind with anyone” speech tonight.

and lastly, anyone watch Camp Rock this weekend?

Camp Rock is ALL we watched. the. entire. weekend. (okay, fine. i *liked* the movie. don’t tell, mmmkay?)

damn you, Jonas Brothers. get your songs out of my brain. i don’t want ’em. you aren’t even cute. there’s just too much eyebrow action happening for me. raise your hands up in the air and scream! We’re finding our voice, following our dreams.
Cause we rock! We rock! We rock, We rock on!


  1. We were driving back yesterday during that rain… the reports coming out of the area (flooded off-ramps?!?) were insane.

    But the storms we got overnight on Friday? Nuts.

  2. The weathe? INSANITY! Come here…it’s nice and hot for the kiddies to play in the water. Although you might risk melting because it’s so hot.

  6. Holy crap, if I didn’t know any better I’d say that was Oklahoma weather!

    It is plenty hot and sunny here now for water parks and backyard sprinklers, but all my kids are begging for is Chuck E. Cheese! Glad they aren’t awake to see the pictures!

    So you call them light sabers at your house? At our house, it’s a wenis. heh

  7. Only slightly less comforting than the pregnancy pact is the purity balls these teens in Utah (and elsewhere?) are attending with THEIR FATHERS.

    There’s a Chuck E. Cheese just around the corner from my house, I just discovered. I kinda want to go, as it’s probably been 20 years since I’ve stepped foot in one…

  8. I’m blissfully unaware of this thing called “Camp Rock”… it’s all x-box and burps over here with the teen, baby.

    I LOVED Skee-ball when I was a kid. LOVED.

  12. That story is soooooo disturbing! I’m just…yeah I don’t even know what to say to that.

    I am lucky that i do not have to deal with camp rock ever. I had blissfully been unaware of this until I started reading the blogs about it. Still no idea who these jonas brothers are but i’m sure i’ll learn a lot soon.

  14. thank god for DVR…camp rock will keep my girls busy for hours….shower time for mama!

    and the pregnancy pact thing is just so fucked up. what ever happened to the good old days when teens would make suicide pacts anyway? (totally sick thought and partially kidding)

    Comment by swirl girl on June 23, 2008
  15. Oh you KNOW I rocked and rocked and rocked ALL WEEKEND LONG! I also spent many hours wondering if one or all are gay and could we slightly wax some of the brows? Please?

    I seriously was too into the movie.

    We arent so much about the Jonas bro’s, but about ICarly and the Naked Brothers Band. Some of that shit is catchy!!!

  20. Two things I don’t get in this world right now: this weather; the Jonas Brothers! What’s the deal???

    Comment by Haley-O on June 23, 2008
  21. I don’t mind the weather in that it’s cool, which is nice because I hate hate hate hate the heat. But – if it’s crappy while we are at the beach house, I will be PISSED.

    Comment by mamatulip on June 23, 2008
  22. Don’t hate me, but I thought that Camp Rock SUCKED. The kids loved it, but I felt that at least HSM has some decent acting. That poor Jonas Brother. Bad eyebrows and bad acting!

  23. LOL…. we went to Chucky’s this weekend because the forecast called for showers. It ended up so sunny. But, how can you take away crack after offering it.

    We spent 10 dollars on tokens and walked out with a fist full of airheads. UGH!

  24. We are having that weather here in Indiana as well… it SUCKS!!

    Anyways, I just had to say I LOVE SKEE-BALL!! Best Chuck-e-Cheese game ever!!!

    As a child, I was obsessed with the stupid prizes as well… I guess I didn’t realize that you could buy them for $.35 at Wal-Mart.

  27. Wow, I could have totally bumped into you on Sunday! we got to Wonderland, walked to the water park, just in time for the downpour. We then sat in the change room for 1/2 an hour, it stopped, we took the kids on 2 rides before it got dark again, we made it to the car before the next downpour. We were going to go to Chuckee Cheese too but didn’t think I could stand the noise…we went for Greek food instead.
