"Oh, yeah? That's what you think."

I've watched/listened to this video about a hundred times. Love, love, love Kristin Chenowith.

I'm watching the 20 greatest Christmas songs on NBC. This show is effing ridiculous.

Number 19 is "Jingle Bell Rock" by Julianne Hough, that chick from Dancing with the Stars who thinks she's a country singer. I'm sorry, but a song that came out THIS YEAR and sung by someone only five people know is not one of the greatest Christmas songs.

This show is basically an advertisement, and the singers prob. paid to have their songs on the list.

Completely RIDICULOUS. I love Christmas songs, so I'm pretty ticked.

...Josh Groban at 18? Shoot me. And people think they're cool when they sing the lesser known versus. They're not.

Now Taylor Swift is singing "Silent Night." Now, I actually like her, but she is so off key and sounds strained. It's awful. And it is not one of the greatest Christmas songs.

This video never gets old.

"I wanna roll around like a kid in the snow"

I think the Brat is in love with an opossum.

My evidence:

--Twice the opossum has been spotted sleeping and/or eating on the front porch.
--For the past week or so, the Brat has been acting weird at night. Usually, he stays in through the night and gets let out when someone gets up for work around 6 a.m. Now he is waking me up at three in the morning (lots of thanks) to be let out. When he gets on the porch, he starts meowing this awful sound, like he's calling someone. He's never done that before. And when I tapped the window at him one time, he looked at me guiltily - I swear! - and ran who knows where.
--He's all wore out, ragged, and sleepy when he comes inside in the morning and afternoon.

Okay. That's all I have. But I'm so right.

If you like Christmas songs (and "Africa" by Toto), you'll agree that this version of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" by Straight No Chaser is really silly and cute.

A good day.

I need to realize that if I just speak up about what's bothering me, it'll almost always be taken care of.

Sweep the stupid idea!

Pinkett Smith Happy to Help Karate Kid Son:

    Actress Jada Pinkett Smith has a new role - acting as son Jaden's mentor as he stars in a remake of The Karate Kid.

    Jaden, Pinkett Smith's eldest child with her movie star husband Will Smith, is forging his own Hollywood career after winning the part of Daniel Larusso in a remake of the hit 1984 film.

    And Pinkett Smith will be behind the scenes playing a supporting role for Jaden, 10, who has previously acted alongside his father in 2006 movie The Pursuit of Happyness.

    She says, "I'll probably be playing stage mummy, which is not a role I play very well. My son said, I need you here just as mummy."
The Karate Kid is an effing classic. It does not need to be remade. God. This seriously ticks me off. No originality anymore.

ETA: From here:
    Smith also spoke about his son’s upcoming remake of The Karate Kid, and the news isn’t pretty. Apparently young Jaden, seasoned veteran of at least (but no more than) two movies, is taking a stand on the classic crane kick that not only won Daniel Larusso a trophy but the hearts of Elizabeth Shue, Tamlyn Tomita, and all of America. He doesn’t want the iconic crane move in his movie. Apparently, Jaden wants his Daniel to kick ass with moves taken from video games. The irony here is that papa Will is trying to convince his son not to mess with a classic film by changing something so important…


ETA #2: From here:
    Jaden Smith made his film debut alongside his father in The Pursuit of Happyness, and will also be seen in next month’s The Day the Earth Stood Still. Following in his father’s footsteps, Jaden has already pressured the studio to alter the ending to The Karate Kid reboot. **SPOILER** Reportedly, his character notices familiar traits in his mentor before realizing that the wise, old man is indeed himself from forty years in the future. Smith plans for the film to be the first in a karate/time travel trilogy.
There are no words. NO WORDS.

Bratty, spoiled kids who only get movie parts because of their parents should not be allowed to remake fun, entertaining films and change EVERYTHING THAT WAS GOOD ABOUT THEM. I did not realize 10-year-old kids now (re)write movie scripts.

For Christmas, we bought my dad an old-fashioned apple cider/grape juice press. He doesn't know anything about it. I just remembered some comment he made in passing last year, so I wanted to get him one.

But tonight during Ugly Betty some commercial had one in it, and he said, "That's what I need." Heh!
