unmitigated me (m.a.w.)

I had another dream about George Clooney last night, so I am not processing much right now. That [professor is right about Simon Cowell, though.

I totally understand your crush on House. I love him... vicodin and all.

Does Jimmy get you a hot towel after your bath? I wish I could get my husband to do that for me. That would be heaven!

Oh, thanks for the tip about staying on my back. I hadn't thought about that before. Not a pleasant image!

I've been in love with Hugh Laurie for 20 years (Rowan Atkinson and Derek Jacobi too - so shoot me, I'm an Anglophile). I should probably watch House. Our problem is we have such a crazy work schedule (AND a busy teenager) that we can't make time to sit down and watch a show EVERY week. So we buy DVDs; I guess once we're through the last season of Star Trek: The Next Generation and the first 3 seasons of the Muppet Show (The Young One is loving both of them), we'll have to see about House.

I think the whole "we are all winners and everyone's special" mindset we've imposed on our children these days is disgraceful - we are leaving them TOTALLY unprepared for life as adults. Sometimes you lose, sometimes people are cruel, sometimes life is completely unfair, sometimes you are going to be disappointed and people are going to tell you NO. We need to teach our kids how to deal with these things, since they ARE going to have to face them. We are raising a generation of wussies.

I had to skip your first two paragraphs since the LOST and House finales are waiting for me on my DVR...but I'll be back! ;)

Princess Nagger loves it when I heat up a towel for her after her bath - although now that it's getting hot (and since we don't have central air, the upstairs bathroom is more like a sauna) it's probably a good thing she doesn't ask for a cold towel. ;)

Gravity can be a good thing in certain situations, can't it? ;)

All I know is I'm glad I didn't get into Lost. Seems there are a lot of unhappy people around.

I wonder if that sign is true or just someone making people think they are getting their picture taken. Either way I agree it is kind of creepy. Although maybe it will end up being a book some day, you never know LOL.

Julie at MDMA

Okay, I never watched Lost (except the first season and I watched it on DVD all in a weekend and OD'd and never watched again) but I have to say, I think my distance is helping me to understand it. I got the lowdown here: http://www.eonline.com/uberblog/index.jsp?author=kristin+dos+santos and I think it makes some sense (p.s. they were alive, they died in their own time, the "light captured in the bottle" was the pivotal thing, Jack "letting go" was the big deal... things like that!).

Re: the hot towel. I have a 7 year old boy who does things just like that. Adorable! And I think they're going to freak out when we send them to college and they have to feed themselves ...

Re: middle aged angles. Have you seen the picture on my homepage? Gravity can be defeated (at least in photographs!)

I want to play RTT today! Fun!

kate

thanks for the sex tip! And yes, that claymaster is extremely creepy!!!!

Suzicate

That last paragraph gave me much to think about...in fact, it might be lifechanging!!!!!!!!!!!! That sign on the pole is a creepy thought. But ah yes, House - sweet sigh! Don't watch Lost, but I do watch Grey's Anatomy...finally a finale that didn't leave me miserably hanging!

Sprite's Keeper

Okay, Lost. (Deep breath.)
Here's what I get after reading some of the recaps. (Even after seeing the show, I was like huh?) The show follow's Jack's point of view of the entire thing (all six seasons) from start to finish, the beginning of his time on the island (his eye opening) to his last breath on the island (his eye closing). The flashbacks/forwards were all real including coming back to the island and saving the island from the Smoke Moster or Locke. The flash sideways are the characters somehow resolving their unfinished business, i.e. happy endings, getting closure, etc. that never really happened. They all die, but at different times, which is why Hurley standing outside the funeral home, tells Ben that he was a great #2 even though that had just happened on the island. Time had elapsed for some, not for others, which is why the dead joined the (alleged)living in the funeral home and they all moved on.
I think I'm done with this, but I still want to watch once more since the final scene of the wreckage stopped me too. I wondered if they were showing possibly that noone survived in the first place or the wreckage that kind of began it all.
Amazing show.
There was something else I wanted to say, but this sucked all the emotion out of me. Whew!

Niki

Tony and I do the "hot towel" thing for each other from time to time, especially in winter. It's wonderful. Tell Jimmy you want the same treatment and then maybe he'll get a hot towel too someday!

Sara

I think I would like Lost, frustration and all, I just never had the opportunity to watch it. I got the impression it was kind of like Twin Peaks back in the day, which I loved.

The wisdom of Jude again! Muffins with fat, hot towels, massage chairs. He knows what's good.

I want my kids to know that they can do anything they *work really hard at,* not do anything just because. And that when they screw up, and they will, everybody does, it's not the end of the world. And people might yell at you. Just suck it up and keep on truckin'.

Um, On Top is still an acceptable position for ladies if the woman is facing the ceiling. It doesn't require any major acrobatics either. Just sayin'... ;)

Aimee @ In THIS Life

Lost - Don't watch it myself (too creepy for me), but TLo had a really good run-down of the finale and their (mostly makes sense) interpretation of it on the Project Rungay blog.

I have to say, I do think the "never put a kid down" thing has gotten a wee bit out of hand. Yes, we shouldn't put kids down, but neither should we praise them for every tiny little thing. Putting them out in the world expecting praise every time they accomplish the smallest, simplest task is going to set them up for major disappointment. They need to learn to expect and accept fair and honest criticism, and I'm afraid too many kids aren't ready for that.

Wendi

No wonder I have such fond memories of that night I spent in that cheesy motel with a mirrored ceiling.

Christopher (AKA: CaJoh)

That is if you only do it in elevators...

Love that photo-- makes you think.

I think it's a shame that we have to pamper people and consider criticism bad.

Love House, but haven't caught too many episodes this season.

Thank you for your randomness,

Lawyer Mom

Okay, you've got me hooked. I'm going to hulu to watch House right now. Hope it's on there.

Re the mirror . . . I suppose you could put one on your bedroom ceiling. Except, I suppose, gravity catches up to the men, too, which might spoil the view.

Jerry

great information here :) Kudos to your Blog :)
