other priorities

My spacebar isn't really working, so I guess you could say my life is pretty rough.

Speaking of challenges, this is new:

Maybe Ivy's fondness for the toilet andits accompanying paper bodes well for pottytraining.  Or maybe it doesn't. I recognize that andits  is not a word. Now do you understand the trial that is my computing? This keyboard is straight up making up words. It's some serious hardship up in here.

Speaking of actual challenges and human suffering, as in the French Revolution, let's  talk about Les Miserables.
I was so over this upcoming movie for a long time. I ignored the Facebookers incessantly posting the trailer. I reminded myself that Anne Hathaway is The Worst.  I agreed with Stephen when he said the movie (or musical) could never compare to the book. But then we went to see Lincoln (which was awsome, BTdubs), and I was blindsided by the the long-avoided, hated Hathaway soloing,  Les Miserables trailer. Guys, I bawled like a freaking baby. And I know what babies bawl like because,  I'm not sure if I've mentioned this, but I have one.
So you win, Lay Miz. I'll see you. I'll cry. I'll say I could have done without Anne H. but secretly think she nailed it. I'll be touched to the core because I'm a sucker.


  1. I had the exact same response when I heard about Miss Hathaway. First, I threw up a little in my mouth. Then I saw the trailer and had to pretend there was something in my eye as I shamefully wiped away the tears.

  2. Anne Hathaway sucked for so long. But I too am learning to let go of my hate in hopes of enjoying the new Les Mis. God bless Victor Hugo.

  3. The thing I'm most scared about is Karen (from Mean Girls) playing Cosette. Everytime I see her in the previews I keep waiting for her to say "Do you want to do something fun? Do you want to go to Taco Bell?!"

  4. I lived in fear of that preview coming on and Jon complaining about Anne Hathaway. I agree that I'm a little skeptical about Amanda Seyfried as Cosette, although maybe she was awesome in Mama Mia. I never saw it.


Don't be shy.
