As I’m sure many parents do, I find myself singing real songs to Emerson with her name replacing some of the lyrics. For her, I want to keep a list of these. There are others, which I cannot remember at this time. Hence the need for a list. Sweet Emerson (to Sweet Caroline) My Mersona I’m so glad that’s you’re my Emerson (replacing “she’s my little...
July 9 weight: 151.5 July 2 weight: 154 Total Loss: 2.5 lbs It’s amazing how much you can lose if you eat nonstop/2 instead of nonstop. The next pounds will be tougher of course.
I can make fun all I want, but my memory of watching the “Black or White” video premiere in 1991 after The Simpsons is fond. I was a huge dork in the 6th grade but seeing that video and talking about it with people the next day made me feel like less of an awkward outcast.
8 soldiers dead in the last 2 days in Afghanistan. But that’s not important right now…
THERE WILL BE WIDESPREAD LOOTING IN LOS ANGELES FOR THE NEXT TWO HOURS.
Methinks Emmy needs to go back to school.
mikemorrow: Start with Soap. Do not stop until you have watched all of Soap and all of Benson. So what do you do when you can’t get the theme from Soap out of your head? Your instructions are incomplete.

Yes, I misspelled it too.
Me: These charges occurred about six weeks after my dad passed away. Debt collection agency for Dad’s estate: Plus, your dad lived in State X and the charges were in State Y.

For luckyshirt and sniffyjenkins, who mentioned another Robert C. O’Brien book. I read this awesome book in the summer between 5th and 6th grade. I had no idea at the time that the author died before he finished the book, and that his wife and daughter completed the book from his notes.
jaydensmommie: I just found out a close friend’s ex/babydaddy died in a car accident tonight. He was only 20. I wish there was an “I’m so sorry to hear that” or “I’ll be thinking of you” icon to click instead of the like/heart icon. That has to be an awful, traumatic situation.
I listened to the song “Mack the Knife” in my car today. When I hear that song, I typically remember that my sixth grade class sang it as part of a musical performance. It only occurred to me today that lyrics such as “On the sidewalk……Lies a body just oozing life” were probably not all that appropriate for 11 year olds.
4th of July Scrooge
Nine years ago, I spent the summer in DC. I saw some mighty nice fireworks on the Capitol lawn on the 4th of July. I sat so close to Ray Charles singing America the Beautiful that I’m pretty sure he saw me. So do I want to stay up past my bedtime, take out a cranky child who should be sleeping, go stand in a crowd, fight traffic, see a fireworks show about 10% as good as the one I saw in...
