Regarding Grey's Anatomy, I was disappointed that Mrs. CPA had spoiled some of the 2nd season for me, but then Md. Macaca aptly pointed out that I spoiled the 1st season for HER. Oops! Sorry about that - I guess since I am so behind and it was only a 9 episode season, I didn't even think twice about revealing some plot twists. Again, with the "Oops!". Bad me.
Regarding HFCS, Goofy Girl beat me to the punch and responded to Average Jane's comment regarding not being able to find bread without HFCS. We also use Pepperidge Farm's Whole Grains bread which does not use HFCS. We get the 15 grain hearty texture one and it is YUMMY. As Goofy Girl has seen, I've also noticed that for whatever reason, it lasts FOREVER. Also, I wish I could say we totally avoid HFCS, but we don't. I do like an occasional Coke, for example. However, I do try to avoid it whenever possible particuarly, if there are alternatives. This is why I pretty much will only buy Stonyfield Yogurt, it is the ONLY yogurt I have found that does not use HFCS.
Regarding Stephen Colbert, I watched him on the O'Reilly factor this morning via DVR and CRIED with laughter. Fortunately, I hadn't done my eye makeup yet. I haven't watched O'Reilly on the Colbert Report yet, but I expect it will be just as entertaining.
Regarding Shawn Hornbeck, the boy recently rescued in Kirkwood MO after having been missing for over 4 years, I watched the Oprah interview yesterday and was VERY disturbed by the interview itself. I did not see any redeeming qualities from that interview and am still questioning the purpose of it other than pure sensationalism. I was going to just stop watching because I felt DIRTY watching it, but realized that I did want to comment on it here and to be fair, should watch it in case I missed A Point or something. I failed to ever discover A Point, though. Did I miss it? Did you see it? There was a quality to the interview that insinuated the public "had a right to know" what was going on - I found that disturbing. Particularly, since this is a criminal case and all the facts are still yet to be revealed to a JURY in a court of LAW. I meant, no doubt, the kidnapper is guilty, but I still think things are best left for trial purposes
Regarding Consumers Reports' article on infant seats - it appears that Consumer Reports is withdrawing that article, it turns out the MPH that was tested was closer to 70 MPH. If I notice anything more about it, I will be sure to link to it here.
Regarding Me, I noticed today that I am a big fat liar. People keep asking me how I feel and I cheerily reply "Okay!". Truthfully? I haven't felt 100% since last OCTOBER. Sure, the nausea has passed, but now I am dealing with headaches every fucking day. It's starting to wear on me and my patience is Nicole Ritchie Thin, as Dorothy probably noticed today at lunch. Why do I lie? I guess I am tired of even my own damned grousing at this point, so it is easier to lie.
Regarding First Words, it appears we have Arun's First Word: More. He pronounces it more like "Maawrr" and has a special head tilt that accompanies his delivery, but yeah, it's there.
Regarding Cats and Kids, this morning, I was in the kitchen and heard Arun excitedly jabbering and laughing. I look over at him and notice our cat Harry is on the coffee table and is casually EATING FROM ARUN'S PLATE. I thought this was odd because Harry doesn't usually eat People Food. I go over there to shoo him off the table and notice there are a few bits of cat food on Arun's plate. Now, I am sure that Harry didn't scoop up some kibble in his paws and put them there. Do you?
Okay, I am going away now. I promise.
