- On E! News they were reporting on the story about X-Files star David Duchovny checking himself into rehab for sex addiction. Guess what they named the story about the X-Files star and his sex addiction....? The Sex Files...get it!? Those guys at E! are on top of their game.
- Here's some dialogue from our house this past week:
Elias: Tanner, do you know what Sunny D is?
Elias: It's a drink with a sun on the bottle.
Me: How do you know what Sunny D is? We've never had it.
Elias: I saw a commercial for it. Can we get it?
Me: You can drink it if you want but I think it's disgusting. It tastes like orange juice flavored pancake syrup!
Elias: I think it's good. You can't resist the power of Sunny D!
- I don't like to speak on politics too much because I don't feel I really grasp the big picture in most situations but I think I'm entitled, at least as a parent, to be appalled at Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. This woman has been the Governor of Alaska for the past two years. She had a baby in the spring. What are you doing having a baby while you're trying to run a state? A state with polar bears in it, no less! Plus, she already had four kids, did she really need another while she was in office? Ok..whatever, accidents happen. I should know. But her newborn son was born with Down Syndrome. Seriously, what kind of parent are you going to be to any infant, yet alone an infant with Down Syndrome when you're running for Vice President of the United States of America. I'm not saying she should call off her political career, but you can't honestly tell me that making the decision to run for Vice President (or yet alone be Vice President) is a good parenting move when you've got a retarded four month old baby at home. Lame! You've got to ask yourself, what kind of a person would make that decision? Well, I guess the kind of person that names their child Trig Paxton Van Palin. The "Van Palin" is an homage to Van Halin. Really? I know my son is named after the family on "ALF" but then again I'm not looking to have my name second on the list of people who have access to "the button!" And just for fun, let's run down the attendance sheet for the rest of the Palin kids: Track, 19; Bristol, 17; Willow, 14; Piper, 7 and of course Baby Trig is in the house (without his mother).
- From the world of Star Wars: Why does a Battle Droid need a walkie-talkie? They're robots, shouldn't they just have had the radio built into them!?
