Family Fun Night at Valley West Mall

Last night was “Spiderman & Spidergirl” night at Valley West Mall’s Family Fun Night. We’ve finally reached the age where both of our kids are aware of what’s going on when we go to events like this. My son was super-stoked to meet Spiderman & Spidergirl…and my daughter couldn’t stop touching their costumes. I think Princess Night is on 2/26…and you know we’ll be there…with Priscilla dressed as a princess of course!


Justin Bieber

The talk about this video disgusts me…it just irritates me to no end. Here, watch it…but only like the first 25 seconds, after that, you may vomit too.


All the headlines this morning scream: “Justin gets emotional singing for Selena?” “Is Justin Crying Over Selena Gomez?” Oh for crying out loud…he’s ACTING. It’s called “how to make your song sound better”.

C’mon E? (no more ! for you) News…seriously, you fall for the stupidest stuff.

I call this the Janet Jackson…in 2000ish, Janet Jackson did a concert at The Mark in Moline. A bunch of us & listeners went to the show…annd after Janet got done performing “Again”, she sat on stage, and started to break down and cry because she was so overwhelmed by the audience’s responses.

I didn’t fall for it…I’m sure the next night in Chicago, she did the same thing. It’s an act, and it’s totally fine. Colleen bought into it though, she just couldn’t believe how moved Janet was by the crowd…oh, silly, silly Colleen.

It’s so ridiculous…it’s a showbiz trick…and yet, E? can’t stop falling for it, again…and again…and again. Ugh.
