The only thing missing is…


Tell me. What is the only thing missing here?


a.) Class
b.) Talent
c.) Money
d.) You
e.) All of the above

The only thing missing is U. And everything else. To be fair, glamor is actually not incorrect, just totally weird. The American Heritage dictionary says:

Usage Note: Many words, such as honor, vapor, and labor, are usually spelled with an -or ending in American English but with an -our ending in British English. The preferred spelling of glamour, however, is -our, making it an exception to the usual American practice. The adjective is more often spelled glamorous in both American and British usage.

Reminds me of Don Pteranodon:


If you’ve ever watched Dinosaur Train, you know why this reminds me of Don. The shop has been abandoned for months. Just long enough to put this crap on the windows. Probably couldn’t even pay the rent.

UPDATE: I just noticed the window says “Where the glamo?”. Exactly, my friend. Exactly.

TV Time


Before I became a mom, I had this very granola idea that my kids wouldn’t be stuck in front of the TV all day. And when they were allowed to watch TV, it woudl only be PBS and Little Einstein’s and foreign language and classical music. My kids would be smart. Not retarded like their mother, who was surely ruined on He-Man, GI Joe, Voltron and Captain Caveman.

OMG do you remember Captain Caveman?!? Quality.


Anyway, what was I talking about?

Now that I’m officially a Stay At Home Mom, I’ve decided that we’re taking the year off (lazy, pjs, no schedule, etc) which means lots of TV. Kids TV and Mom TV. First, kids tv:

Dora es una exploradora. Hence the name, DORA. I just got it not that long ago, so I thought I’d share.

This episode is about Roberto the Robot trying to get to his grandfather’s house. Roberto looks familiar…

Nick Swardson is now invading Dora, which kind of sounds pervy.

Also, being the nerd I am, I noticed this and had to share:

*In my best Mrs. Swan voice* He a man do do evey ting!

I live in The South, y’all


I am such a grammar nazi, but this amuses me much:


I bet the agent uses a warshcloth, too.
