Dear ABC,

DANG! You all are KILLING ME! So last night was the season finale of Lost. Just a couple of months ago I was anxiously awaiting the 9 month hiatus to come to an end so that I could see what was going on and who the heck was in that coffin. Now I know. And I also know, as Jack said, "Some really bad stuff happened." And Penny and Des are reunited....and Sawyer loves Kate so very much he jumped out of that helicopter to get her off that island....and Jin was running and begging to be picked up and wasn't....and I actually felt sorry for Ben (never saw that coming)...and why the heck was Charlotte born on the island? I don't know if you actually answered any questions because the new mysteries are far more complex and out there than ever before. And now another hiatus. You are killing me--you are really killing me!

Just Wow

I really have no comments about this that would not get you in touch with my redneck roots, so I will let the action speak for itself.,2933,358956,00.html

On the positive side, I am one week removed from our own Ms. Drama as of today....nothing like summer vacation!

Desperate Does Duran Duran

hmmmm...that did not come out quite as planned, but I will take it! I wore the "This Mom Rocks" shirt that you see on the lower right of the page. I got more comments on that shirt than any other clothing I have ever worn--and they were all positive!

The Girl is showing off her seat and all ready to hear Masser!

Ok she is over that and onto her lollipop.

The Boy--watching and learning how to be a SUPASTAR!

So, tonight is the final results on American Idol. I think David Archuletta is going to win, even though David Cook is the better musician. It has been a better year than most years past, but still, nothing like that first year!

Indiana Jones and The Temple of Duh

The Boy: I really want to be Indiana Jones.

Me: You don't even know what those movies are about!

The Boy: Yes, I do! In the second movie he breaks into the temple to replace the crystal skull. And he gets caught.

Me: How do you know about that?

The Boy: Uh--Lego's commercial! (With the tone of DUH in his voice)

Me: Oh

Dear Annie Leibovitz,

I have always loved your photography. I think you are immensely talented.

Even if you do look a bit odd.

However, not anyone is perfect, right?

But why, oh why, did you remotely think THIS was a good idea?

You take someone whose entire career is built on child entertainment, chastity and clean fun and make her look like an ill, worn out ho? I find nothing beautiful in this picture and I am not even upset she is topless. I am mostly upset that she looks like she is malnourished and deathly ill! Granted, 12 year olds will not be reading Vanity Fair, but once a picture is out there, it is out. Girls have always struggled with self identity and the idea that you have to look a certain way and have a certain image to fit in. Now this. Now it will be cool to look like a zombie--a half naked zombie no less. Did you think it was a cool artistic shot, like Miley said? Did you think it would show her vulnerability and exposure to the world. How very metaphoric of you. I know, historically, you like them nude. John Lennon, Angelina Jolie, Demi Moore, Scarlett Johansen, Keira Knightly, all have gone bare ass for you. Heck, you even took a full nude portrait of yourself pregnant for the world to see. But a 15 year old--just a bad idea no matter what angle you look at it. The girls of this world have more pressure than ever and enough to deal with already. Sorry, Annie, but this time--poor concept, poor picture, poor job!
