Random Thoughts

How is it that Brits are so adept at American accents (to the point that you don't even realize they are not Americans - Christian Bale as Batman, for example or Hugh Laurie as House), while American actors attempting British accents sound like they are participating in a bad high school play? (Kevin Costner and Drew Barrymore, I'm talking to you).

I hate it when women don't include their maiden names on their Facebook profiles. It makes it impossible to find an old friend when you have no clue what her married name is.

The other day I sat down at the piano for the first time in months. Within thirty seconds I had two babies banging on the keys and Michael sticking his hands underneath the pedals. You can see why I only lasted half a song.

Something about the way a baby's bum wiggles as he crawls along the floor is so adorable. Put two baby bums together, chasing each other down the hall, and I could die, it's so cute.

Speaking of bums, I do not understand how anyone thinks an adult's behind is good looking. I have never once looked at a man's butt and thought, "Wow, cute buns!" Come on, it's a rear end. Clearly not the best feature on anyone.

I am currently reading Miss Manners' Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior. It has made me laugh out loud more than any book I've read in recent years.

The phrase I hear most often these days is, "You sure have your hands full!" At least ten different people say this to me every time I leave the house. I know they aren't trying to annoy me, but it is getting old. I always respond graciously ("Yes, I'm so lucky" or "They are so much fun!") but I'm so sick of hearing it I sort of want to slug the next person who says this to me.

I would also like to slug the person who was behind the saying, "Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels." Right after I eat a whole pan of brownies.

Mmmm... brownies.

bonnie! Kim told me to check out your blog and that you have boy and girl twins. I also have 2 little bundles and I completely agree to the annoying comments! the hands full one and the "oh a boy and a girl! one of each! now you can be done!" I didn't realize it was any of their business to tell me that and one of these days I'm going to say that! (deep breaths) I appreciate your blog! I hope you don't mind me stalking it from time to time. and even if you do, I guess I still will.....if thats ok? :)

Hi Sara!

Congrats on your twins! I think twins are so much fun I wish everyone could have a set.
