Best Picture: Letters from Iwo Jima

Speaking Baby Talk

I was introduced to a whole new language this past week while visiting with my sister and new baby nephew. A few of my favorite new catchphrases include:

Boob Juice = breast milk
Liquid Gold = more breast milk (aka Boob Juice)
Oogie Aga = still trying to decipher this one
Poop = just as I remember it

Saying Uncle

I'm still getting use to this whole Uncle thing. My sister gave birth to a baby boy a few months ago and it has taken me 3-4 months just to get used to the idea. It would help if my sister lived closer but she is several states away and I've only met my nephew a couple times. That all changed this weekend.

This weekend was my first real chance to hang out with the little fella, all 15 pounds of him. I still have to fight off my parents and visiting relatives whenever I hold the baby, but I was able to sneak away a few times to get some Uncle/Nephew alone time. Of course that didn't last long because you can only disappear with a baby for so long before someone notices. Nevertheless, it was a great time. I can't wait to spoil the little bugger.

I'm hesitant to say my nephew is the cutest baby ever because I always get so annoyed whenever anyone says it... but it's true. My new baby nephew IS the cutest baby you've never met. So you might as well get used to the idea.

The Shining - recut and remastered

Remember that Stanley Kubrick thriller The Shining starring everyone's favorite Jack? The one that scared the living crap out of you? Those who don't like scary movies are smart enough to steer clear of this movie.

If only the movie studio had marketed it as a romantic comedy. Then perhaps they could have captured the wallets and dollars of unsuspecting moviegoers. Take a look at the re-cut trailer below for a look at what could have been.

snowy Chicago and tired puggles

The snow just won’t stop falling. Gotta love Chicago winters.

It seems like it has snowed almost a foot in the last 2 days, but I’m sure it’s less. The dogs sure enjoy romping around in it though. Lucky for us the snow hit just hours after we returned from a short vacation in sunny California.

We put the dogs up in a kennel. We like to call it “Doggie Camp” because they spend the entire time running around and playing with other dogs. At night, the dogs sleep slumber party style on top of each other. And then it’s right back to running around and playing in the morning.

Usually when we pick up the dogs, they literally pass out in our arms while we’re still in the car driving home. All that time playing (and with little sleep) makes for a tired puppy.

This was only the 2nd time our youngest puggle has ever stayed at the kennel and she wasn’t quite sure how to react when we arrived to take them home. Por puggle cried all the way home in the car.

I wonder if she was disappointed that we hadn’t gone away for good. Either that or she really had to pee.

OMG... Seriously

SHE SAID: So I have been counting down the days, the hours to the big game between the Bears & the Colts. 21 years since the bears have made it to the big game... SURELY it is their time to win. But, nooooooo...

Instead Grossman decides to serve as the MVP... for the COLTS!!! Seriously, can you please learn how to throw the ball???!?!?

We just got home from a superbowl party and I am so glad I don't have to hear the louda** colts fan beside me talking anymore shi*. FYI - I already know Grossman sucks, I don't need you to fill me in on that secret. This was truly the Bears game... despite the spread they should have won. 92 yard touchdown on the initial kick0ff of the game?!?! that is history! but unfortunately so was the rest...
