kids crooked houses

OK i finally caught jon & kate but what i really want to discuss are these kids crooked houses. HOLY CRAP they are cool! i looked them up and for the "deluxe" which i think is what they all got they are $2549.00 and i am sure that doesn't include delivery and installation. it says on the site that they can be shipped to your door for $239-$499 but it says that you (unless you are jon & kate) put them together. HMM, they are cool but that's a little bit much for a playhouse.

so anyway about the long anticipated episode..well, yes it was depressing. i thought it was also weird. it seems like jon is really splitting with kate because she is just such a beotch but it also seems like he has really let this fester for a long time and now is just sort of saying a big F.U. to her and everyone. why did he wait this long to address the problem? and it also blows my mind that they have gone through SO MUCH together and now when the kids are 5 they are splitting. i mean, how stressful to have 6 2-year-olds and they made it through all of that only to split now. and the girl jon is with now is just heinous and have you seen her brother BTW? OMG i think he is seriously mentally retarded. he was the one who came out and said jon was having sex with his sister and he was in the next room. YUCK he is so gross. what is with people in PA anyway? do they all look like that!? and do they talk like jon & kate? UGH!

so i don't know if the show is coming back or what. i got the impression that it was not but then someone said that on the TODAY show they said it was just on hiatus and coming back later. i guess we'll just have to wait and see.

i am really just waiting for the return of GLEE on FOX...please come back soon, you are amazing!

jon & kate and the bachlorette of course

OK so last night i was deciding between jon & kate and the bachelorette which were on at the same time (central time zone) and i was having a really hard time deciding which one to watch. our DVR is super old so if it's recording one show we can't watch another show on another network (so lame, i know). anyway i hate both shows, of course, but i have watched jillian ever since she was rejected by jason and i felt like i should probably watch her just because jon & kate would be replayed a million times.

ANYWAY just when both shows were about to come on our power went OUT. i could not believe it, i almost died! seriously i guess too many people probably had on their air conditioners or something because it's like 93 degrees in minneapolis. so we called the power company and they said the power would be back by 11:19 P.M. what!? i actually considered going to a hotel not just for the t.v. but because we needed air too. so, anyway, we just sat out back on our screened in porch (screen= to keep bugs out for those of you not familiar) sweating our assess off while the rest of the world enjoyed jon & kate face off last night. i can't believe i missed it. i hope i will catch it in reruns and i am trying to keep up with the footage because it's on the news..sounds to me like jon dumped her? i can't tell for sure though. anwyay...i did catch the end of the bachelorette which was stupid as usual. i do have to say that i really like whoever is dressing jillian, though. she has great boots and vests! also i have really been enjoying the contestant "wes" who is apparently on the show to promote his country music band. like, did he not get the memo? hello, no one watches ABC much less the bachelorette and further no one in the WORLD is going to buy/download your album just because you're on some dumb reality show. so i'm sorry this post is so boring, i can't believe i don't get an opportunity to rant about jon & kate.

one last thing of interest, though, i was watching HGTV's $250,000 challenge hosted by drew lachey the other day and the winning contestant said "i was literally blown away." i think that one of my favorite things in life is the misuse of the word "literally." i love it. "there are literally skeletons in my closet." really? literally?

star trek and the hangover

so my mom babysat and we went to 2 movies this weekend which is like a record for us. we saw star trek and the hangover which were both good!

i'm not a star trek fan or anything but i thought the movie was pretty good and chris pine was good despite the fact that he is supposedly dating audrina from the hills (yuck!). i thought leonard nemoy was sort of too old to be in it for so long but that is my only real complaint. i wonder if they offered anything to william shatner or he just couldn't keep his shit together long enough to get a role in it? also i enjoyed uhura who i recognized as the star of one of the best movies ever: drumline. last thing, we were late when we bought the ticket so i asked the seller "are we going to get a seat?" and he said "we have sold 10% of the seats so if you can't find a seat then you have issues." i thought that was a pretty good response.

the hangover was funny. i like todd phillips and i probably like old school the best of his movies. the fat guy with the baby was really good in the movie especially when he cut his hand on the roof and also when he said he had found a baby before at the coffee bean. i miss the coffee bean. they only have caribou and starbucks here in minneapolis. also i liked it when he said to be careful with his pouch because he had skittles in it. the bitch in the movie (girlfriend of andy from the office in the movie) is a favorite of mine and i saw her live with the groundlings in L.A. she is awesome and also in RENO 911 lots. i used to like RENO 911 a lot and not just because Jones lived in my old apartment complex.

so that was it, nothing exciting. i must mention one more thing though. no matter what you do or what anyone says ever, do not under any circumstances watch the movie atonement. seriously, we got it on netflix and it is like the worst P.O.S. ever. first kiera knightly is totally wait, just kidding. she probably weighs 5 lbs. but anyway she sucks and the whole movie is like ridiculously bad and disturbing and so so not worth watching. stick with the hangover and star trek!

lauren conrad etc.

so lauren conrad is coming to the mall of america rotunda to promote a book of some sort, i cannot imagine what the hell it is about. apparently it is called "l.a. candy." i wonder who really wrote it? anyway she better get on tour STAT and milk her status for as much as possible, i guess. speaking of which, i have been watching jon and kate and it's getting pretty good. last week he skipped her birthday to go skiing. also he skied with a kid who had C.P. for approximately 4 minutes. talk about cross-promotion, for kate's birthday TLC arranged for her to go to see DUFF and get a cake. hmm. i always think duff's cakes look weird and i am suspicious that they taste like crap. i mean they are basically all styrofoam and fondant, right? i would way rather have a cake that tastes good. also duff seems to think he is quite the badass for some reason. why? also i thought they were moving to LA and now it seems they are still in baltimore? whatever.
