Here's the Situation - Reality TV Dances By...

This post is not about me or my kids or anyone in my family, but I need to dance around a little Situation that's annoying me. I am going to preface this with a note about women who are not super-models, but have fabulous bodies - men call them "butter faces". But what do we call a hideous-looking man with a good body? Beer face? Butt Face? Loser? Any suggestions?

Typically, I do not blog about celebrities or stars, but this person is neither a celebrity or star (but thinks they are) and is just a train wreck that we love to watch, but it's getting old and I'm sick of seeing him on TV.

I bring this up because one of the Jersey Shore cast mates is on Dancing with the Stars, but is not truly a star and is so annoying to watch. Yes, Mike "The Situation", I mean you! He may have abs of steel, but that's about it,and he's hideously ugly (some might say "fugly"), but thinks he's hot shit. The kicker is, that The Situation is not even an interesting reality-star, he doesn't have 20 kids or multiple multiples, isn't a "little person", didn't survive anything, isn't a millionaire, and is definitely not a contender for The Bachelor (can you imagine that season)...why is he on DTWS? Couldn't they get another D-list celebrity to entertain us?  Couldn't America have voted him off, instead of "The Hoff"? Can't a really, really hot woman just put him in his place and tell him "your face looks like someone hit you a dumbbell a few too many times"...please, please, please!!!

I have finished venting my frustration...the tribe has spoken!

Random Thoughts

The kids are all sleeping, the laundry has been put away, the dishes have been cleaned and I'm procrastinating! Thought I'd share a bunch of random thoughts, that I think are either: funny, interesting, sad or just cute:
  • Everytime I change my son's diaper, he laughs. It's not a hysterical laugh, more of a "heh-heh, I know what you're doing" - it's weird!
  • How come my almost 2-year old cannot keep her binky in while she's in her crib, yet she won't take it out of her mouth when she's out of her crib?
  • Someone needs to tell the baby clothes designers that: buttons up the back do not make it easy to change baby's diapers or get them dressed. I have now gotten rid of all 1-piece outfits that only buttons up the parents don't have time for this.
  • My husband and I have lived in 2 places together, my old condo in Boston and our house here in Waltham. Our neighbors in Waltham have twin daughters.  Our neighbors in Boston (hi James & Maria) had twins almost 1-year after Emma & Robin were born. Coincidence or just another unexplained phenomenon?
  • I received a beautiful painting of the house I grew up in for my wedding. It's hanging in my downstairs bathroom and the kids get to look at it a lot! Every time I change Emma or Robin they point to the picture and say "Kitty Cat" and start meowing. It's weird, because most people can't even see the cats in the photo. They also point to me and say "home"...I never told them it was my home!
  • All of my kids LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to hear me sing; I am their American Idol, but I can't carry a tune! I used to hook up the microphone to the Wii and perform, it was always "You Are My Sunshine" and it gets them to stop crying, screaming, and makes them quiet...I feel like a superstar.
  • I drive a big, bad, blue minivan that I call the "Loser Cruiser" - it's totally pimped out, I could live in it. Just 4 years ago I made fun of my Cousin Andi for her Big Red Van...I repent!
  • Every single night between 8:15 pm and 8:30 pm some one drives down my street with their window open and their dog barking. This is every night, and this is how I know what time it is.
  • I think my husband is hilarious...even when he pisses me off, it's still funny. What's even more funny, he taught the girls to say "Mommy, calm down", and they think it's a riot.
