It’s been a rough week. I won’t give you a play by play, but one of the highlights was being vomited on multiple times Wednesday night. Good times. My daughter, Put Pie, ate something that did not agree with her and the whole night was spent trying to sooth her, taking showers, and doing laundry. Boy was I happy to have a washer and dryer and spare sheets.
I feel like I’m in college again and cramming. Fortunately, I don’t have to write any papers or take any tests. I’m on a mission to watch all the SAG Award nominated movies so that I can vote. This year the movies are being offered to eligible voters via download on iTunes, which is great since I never get a chance to go out and see movies in an actual theater. However, it is still crazy hard to watch a whole movie when you live with a toddler.
My daughter and I just do not have the same taste in movies. I suggest watching The Social Network, while she would rather watch a marathon of Barney and Friends. I try and tell her that Barney is not up for a SAG Award and she looks at me like that is the biggest injustice she has ever witnessed in her life. I’m going to say that she gets her taste in entertainment from her father’s side of the family.
I certainly did not grow up watching anything as tacky as this:
No, my family had much more refined tastes in childhood entertainment. I had the pleasure of watching a program with a far more debonair and classy hero: El Chapulin Colorado…
I mean a big purple dinosaur is just silly, but a red grasshopper is my kind of superhero. His intro is: Más ágil que una tortuga, más fuerte que un ratón, más noble que una lechuga, su escudo es un corazón… ¡Es el Chapulín Colorado! (More agile than a turtle, stronger than a mouse, nobler than lettuce, his shield is a heart… It’s the Red Grasshopper!)
And now your Friday Fortune Cookie (don’t forget to add “in bed” at the end, if you are so inclined):
