Random Tuesdays 'cause it's Tuesday

randomtuesday

All I wanted to do this weekend is see some of the movies nominated for Oscars. I haven’t seen Milk, Revolutionary Road, Slumdog Millionaire….even the long Brad Pitt old guy/baby movie looks cool. Instead I saw ‘Madagascar 2’. It was stupid. Although, the ‘dying hole’ bit was pretty funny (you see, when the animals get sick they need to pick out a ‘dying hole’ to dig and then just lay there to die. All you see are these heads sticking out and everyone pretty much ignores them, but then the main giraffe decides to become a doctor, and…...oh never mind).

I want to go dancing this weekend. I don’t really do that anymore (unless I’m dragged there by my bar-fly friend), but lately I’ve been getting the urge to get down with my bad self. There is a band called Absofunkinlutely playing at the one bar I will agree to go to, and they’re described as an R&B/funk/disco band which is right up my alley. Hopefully I can get a little posse together and have a girl’s night out.

I called my little girl a drama queen this weekend. She is one, trust me. She thought it was a compliment of the highest order - one step up from princess, after all. This morning she was still talking about it (but she’s only three so she couldn’t really remember exactly what it was I was calling her), and when we arrived at daycare she proudly announced to her group that she is a ‘drag queen’. I love it.

I should really give blood. I work directly across the street from the Red Cross (oops, Canadian Blood Services) and I haven’t ever donated. We can’t call it the Red Cross anymore because they infected a lot of people with Hep C and HIV in the 90’s. They felt the best way to deal with that little whoops is to change their name, and then turn around and blame the ‘old’ Red Cross. This province does that a lot.

For example, the last conservative government we had in power (in the 80’s) ended with most of the elected officials going to prison for stealing tax payer money. They were called the Conservative Party, but after they all had to go to jail the few of them left standing decided it might be a good idea to change their name. They are now called the ‘Saskatchewan Party’ and actually WON the last election.

People around here really aren’t that bright.

Except me. I really should be running things.

That is an awesome name for a band! I have been using the word awesome alot today?? I need a new word : )

Casey said...

I agree, you should be running things up there. Am I invited to this girl's night? I could totally use some ass-shakin and beer drinking, it's been years since I've done that. I'd have to warn you though, my dancing face is a little scary and resembles my poop face and my drumming face. You've been warned.

If you decide to run things, I'll vote for you.

My three year old is a drama queen too. The wailing and sobbing and sighing and eye rolling. The teenage years should be an effing blast.

Girls Night? I'm in! Shotgun!

Keely said...

Maybe with the haircut, she's feeling some gender confusion?

I think I need a "dying hole" today.

That band sounds like it'd right up my alley too...wish I lived closer, I'd join your posse! ;) The Princess Nagger (now 6) doesn't appreciate it when I call her a Drama Queen...so I tell her 'if the shoe fits' - and of course she relents that her shoes do indeed fit...literal girl! ;) Drag Queen...that's too funny! You should be running things up there...totally! :)

Happy Random Tuesday! :)

lmao at your daughter broadcasting her drag queen aspirations. I can already tell she's fabulous.

We saw Madagascar 2 a couple of months ago. It didn't suck, which is always nice, although it was no Oscar winner for sure.

Heather said...

Holy Hell...I got sucked into renting Madagascar 2 as well this weekend. I guess since my kids aren't little anymore I thought it was BORING with a cap. B. Oh well...and I am jonsing for some dancing too!!!

If you do get down with your bad self let me know how it goes. I've been having similar longings but am having re-entry issues, seeing as the last time I danced was um like 7 years ago.

We rented Madagascar 2 this weekend as well. I'd just watch it for the penguins. I love the penguins.

Revolutionary Road. What the hell was that about? Because all the ads for it just screamed LONG to me. Pretty much the same as Pitt's movie. SUPER LONG.

I haven't gone dancing in FOREVAH, unless you count the time last week I shook it all over the house while cleaning and listening to Circus.

Raven said...

'Drag Queen'- That is priceless!! And yes, I agree, you should be running things. It's amazing to me that something so simple as changing a name can make people forget all past misdeeds.

Great post!

Raven said...

P.S. I love the name of your blog, it's great!

Helene said...

I'm dying over the "drag queen" comment your daughter made!! Definitely one of those moments that you wish the ground would split open and suck you down into it, right??

Thanks for visiting my blog! I really like yours and will stop by again for sure!
