Tina Fey Is a Bubble Person

A few weeks ago, NBC ran the 30 Rock episode called "The Bubble." For those of you who missed it, let me explain what a bubble person is. A bubble person is an attractive person who gets whatever they want in life. Thus, they live in a bubble, protected from harsh reality and the horrors of the world. In the episode, Liz Lemon finds out that the guy she is dating is a bubble person. She discovers that he is bad at everything and doesn't even know it. No one has the heart to tell him the truth...until Liz, that is. He gets special treatment all the time: no waiting in lines, getting free food and avoiding parking tickets. On the other hand, Liz is treated horribly wherever she goes. It was a pretty funny episode, but that is beside the point.

The point is--Tina Fey is a bubble person. It is obvious that she doesn't think so. It shows on 30 Rock and her movies. I bring this up only because it came up again in last Thursday's episode. In the cold open, Liz goes with Jack to get an engagement ring for Eliza. The salesperson looks at Liz and says "you sure?" That would never ever happen! Then in the end when Eliza is in a jealous rage because of Liz and Jack's "weird" relationship, Liz says "Come on. Look at me," while turning sideways to show her pot belly. What was that? Her self-deprecation is beginning to get ridiculous. But I guess it's part of her charm. It's what makes her so likable and relatable. But she is also cute as hell and ridiculously talented. She is pretty much awesome! She really is a bubble person whether she wants to admit it or not.

What Happened to Lindsay Lohan?

At one time in my life, I had a huge girl crush on Lindsay Lohan, but that was many many years ago. She was a rising star once. She was actually curvy and not stick thin like she is now. She looks kinda freakish, doesn't she? She had so much potential...then came the partying and more partying. Her personal life became more interesting than her movies. I was pretty disappointed because I really was a fan. She hasn't made a good movie since Mean Girls. That was 5 years ago. That is a long time considering she is only 22 years old.

I am hoping she gets back on track. I say this as a former fan. I am still waiting for her to make a dynamite movie. She better do one soon before she becomes obsolete. However, if Britney Spears can come back, so can Lindsay Lohan...because she actually has talent. (Okay, I admit Britney's songs are catchy. Damnit.)


Since I heard there was going to be a fantasy movie called Inkheart coming out, and that it is based on a book, I decided to give it a try. I had never even seen the previews. I just saw a billboard, so I had no idea what it was about.

From the first page, I was interested. It is the book I have always been looking for! There are adventure, magic, odd characters, and other worlds. I really don't want anyone who's even thinking of reading the book to read the synopsis in the next paragraph! It was all the more exciting because I had no idea what was going to happen. I didn't even read the back of the book, when I bought it.

(Spoiler Alert!) So Inkheart is about a girl, named Meggie, and her father, who she calls Mo (very cute). One night, a strange man who knows Mo comes to their door warning them to get out of town because a man named Capricorn is looking for them, and he's getting close. Leaving town right away, Mo takes Meggie on a desperate journey to hide the coveted item that Capricorn is looking for, a book called Inkheart. We later learn that when Mo reads a book aloud, things and even characters come out of it. The evil Capricorn and other characters were all read out of the book long ago when Meggie was young. Captured by Capricorn, he forces Mo to read treasures and other evil characters out of the book, so that Carpicorn can take over our world. Meggie and Mo work together to figure out how to put Capricorn and his men back into the book in which they belong. (Spoiling over!)

The book is a trilogy! You know how us sisters love trilogies. The next two books after this one is Inkspell and Indeath. They all came out already, so don't be upset when you finish Inheart! I looked the author up, Cornelia Funke and found out the original versions of this book is in German! They were translated into English, so that was pretty cool.

Go forth and read!
I give this book 4.8 stars!

(After finishing the entire trilogy, I will blog about it again.)

Vicky Cristina Barcelona

I've been traveling a lot recently, and because USAir no longer shows movies on their flights, I bring my own and have been catching up on flicks. My standard for airplane movies is really really low because anything is better than doing nothing. My recent thing has been English movies like Mansfield Park and Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day. I also like to watch girlie movies, knowing that my husband wouldn't want to watch them anyway. This leads me to Vicky Cristina Barcelona. This I didn't enjoy...even when stuck on a plane. I don't particularly like Woody Allen movies. But like I said, my standard is really low, and Tina said it was pretty good. So I gave it a chance. But it is awful stuff...just awful. The acting was terrible. The dialogue was bad. It was almost like the actors were ad-libbing...that's how bad it was. The girl who played Vicky was the worst. She is not even pictured in the poster, and her character's name is in the friggin' title. That says a lot. And another thing, the male lead looks like a not-so-hot version of Jeffrey Dean Morgan or Clive Owen. (I get those guys mixed up sometimes. I don't know why.) And the girl who played Vicky looked like Jennifer Love Hewitt a little. It was completely distracting.

However, the shining star was Penelope Cruz. She was superb in the movie but was only in the second half. After watching the movie, I found out that she won an Oscar for her role. Not surprising, but too bad it was for this movie. Maybe it is just me because I think this movie was critically acclaimed. But I didn't think the dialogue was particularly witty or the concept particularly unique. I thought it was bad even for an airplane movie. I almost rather have sat there and done nothing.

17 Again

I was traveling this week and had a lot of time to kill before my red-eye. So I decided to do something I've never ever done before in my life. Watch a movie by myself. Insanity!! From the title of this post, you could guess what I chose to watch. When I saw the 17 Again commercials, I have to admit that I actually wanted to see it. There is something about Zac Efron that makes him...not hatable. Do you know what I mean? He was in High School Musical for goodness' sake...I was meant to dislike the franchise and him. But I don't hate him and find that I actually really like him. After watching 17 Again, I think he is a legitimate actor who will definitely go places.

There is something about body switching or father becomes son or mother becomes daughter movies (whatever you want to call it) that are timeless. That is why they keep making them...Big, Freaky Friday, Vice Versa and Like Father Like Son. People may think the concept is dumb, and it is. What makes them work are the actors who make something so ridiculous seem believable.

The same goes for 17 Again. Zac Efron really seemed like an adult trapped in a teenager's body. His speech about safe sex was really funny. His interaction with his ex-wife who is 20 years his senior wasn't creepy at all. He said and did things that his older self would have said and done. It made perfect sense that he really was 37 years old but looked like a teenager. This movie was hilarious but, at the same time, heartwarming.

So you should watch it! Anyone would enjoy this movie, even boys. I was sitting in front of these guys (no girls in the group) who obviously liked the movie. They were laughing really loud like every few minutes. It was really annoying. But aside from that, I enjoyed my movie going experience by myself.

Update 4/27/09: This is a picture of Matthew Perry when he was young. It is not totally unimaginable that he looked like Zac Efron when he was younger. Am I right? No?

Glow-in-the-Dark Puppy!?

I found this crazy article in Aim Dashboard, a website that pops up when I log into Aim.

A team of South Korean scientists has created the world’s first fluorescent puppy, according to New Scientist magazine.

By normal light, Ruppy looks like any other beagle puppy. In ultraviolet light, she glows red. She's the first transgenic puppy, meaning she was created with some genetic material from another creature -- in this case, cloned cells that include a red fluorescent gene sea anemones produce. Researchers from the Seoul National University in South Korea released the photos this week.Ruppy is transgenic, meaning she has genes from another animal. Scientists said they hope this will pave the way to model human diseases in dogs, whose relatively long life-span could make them better study subjects than other animals.

While scientists have created other animals that glow, Ruppy is a first for canines. The magazine said scientists also created four other beagles that share her same red trait.
Byeong-Chun Lee of Seoul National University in South Korea lead the team that created the dogs. Stem cell researcher Woo Suk Hwang was also part of that team. Hwang has come under fire for fraudulent work with human cells, but he also helped create the first cloned dog, Snuppy, and an investigation later validated the dog experiment.

One scientist called the glowing puppy an "important accomplishment." But another dog geneticist doubted the experiment's value, calling the developmental process "laborious, expensive and slow."

This is horrible and unnatural! Death and disease are a normal process of life, and messing with that can cause overpopulation and health problems. Diseased animals and humans that were supposed to die, will live and breed, which makes our future look unhealthy and mutated.

Craiglist Is Evil

Craigslist has spawned a murderer. Have you been following the bizarre story of the Craigslist murders? For some reason, I found it really disturbing (and not just for obvious reasons). This guy was going around answering craiglist ads by women for erotic massages (and we all know what I means). When he meets them, he would tie them up and rob them. One woman tried to fight back and ended up dead. The most creepy part about this is the suspect, Philip Markoff. He is a normal looking guy. He is 22 and a second year med student at Boston University. He is engaged to be married in August. His fiance was defending him to the press, calling him a "beautiful person" and saying he would never hurt a fly. Then more details were uncovered. The police traced emails back to him and found duct tape, restraints and a semi-automatic in this house. They also disclosed that a possible motive is a gambling problem. The police and district attorney are calling him a predator and describing his crimes as brutal, savage and vicious.

You really shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Cliche, I know, but still relevant and true. For a picture of the guy and the latest news, click here. I rather not put a picture of him on this blog because it's creepy.

Oh, and Craigslist should really monitor their ads better. I've read plenty of news stories of people using Craigslist for crimes. So beware of Craigslist! It's evil!

WTF, Jackie Chan!

Celebrities need to learn how to keep their mouth shut. Stay far far away from politics. Stick to safe topics like fashion, crazy vegan diets, absurd baby names, their hate and love relationship with the paparazzi, and whether mom jeans and gladiator shoes are in or not (I really want to know!).

The most recent victim of his own big mouth is Jackie Chan. I grew up watching his movies. He reminds me of my dad a little. I was glad that he was able to transition to American movies and achieve success here. I stuck by him while he was learning the language and when he made corny jokes on The Tonight Show. But I can't defend him when he says dumb things.

On April 18, 2009, at a business forum in Hainan, a southern Chinese island, Jackie Chan was asked whether the Chinese “need to be controlled." He should have politely said "no comment." Instead, he gave a nonsensical response that landed him in hot water. He said, "I'm not sure if it's good to have freedom or not. If you're too free, you're like the way Hong Kong is now. It's very chaotic. Taiwan is also chaotic." He added, "I'm gradually beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled. If we're not being controlled, we'll just do what we want."


I'd like to believe that he didn't mean anything by it and really didn't know what the hell he was talking about. But Jackie Chan, what were you thinking? He offended so many people...I mean a whole friggin' race and the most populous country in the world. Again, WTF! Lawmaker Albert Ho said it right, calling the comments "racist" and saying "[p]eople around the world are running their own countries. Why can't Chinese do the same?" Jackie Chan's spokesperson said that the comments were taken out of context and Jackie Chan was really referring to the entertainment industry in China. Yeah...nice try...

My Self-Portrait

Here are some really really crappy pictures I took of a self-portrait I had just finished for my Digital Imaging class. I did all the backgrounds with Adobe Illustrator and I sewed the dolls with felt. (Now, everyone wants me to make them one.. which actually isn't such a bad idea because it's an easy, cheap gift i can give everyone!)

This comic strip portrays me, not only because it's all done in my particular style, but also because the story line is a lot like my life. Whenever something bad happens, it usually ends pretty well. I consider myself a very lucky person. Plus, I love ice cream! (Notice the doll is given mint chocolate chip in the end. My fav!)

I added some pictures of my piece actually hung on a wall. This is when I presented it to my class. It seems mine was very different. I'm the only one who uses Adobe Illustrator. Most use Adobe Photoshop and don't want to go near Illustrator.

Moonlight Starring Alex O'Loughlin and Jason Dohring

Like all Veronica Mars fans, I love Logan Echolls. At first he seemed like just another bad boy. Then you find that he has layers and depth. And he can love with so much passion...sigh. I was sad when I was done watching the third and final season. So I had to know where I can get some more Logan, I mean Jason Dohring, the actor. And I heard that he was on some vampire show called Moonlight. It had already been canceled by the time I found out about it. However, they were able to complete a season before it got the ax, and the episodes are currently rerunning on the SciFi channel. Woot woot for me. So I followed to the canceled show.

Moonlight is friggin' awesome except for the fact that Dohring is hardly in it. But then I discovered a new love, Australian actor Alex O'Loughlin. The premise of the show isn't very original. It is about a vampire who is also a private detective. Sound familiar? Angel, maybe. And for some reason, the usual rules of vampires don't even apply. In Moonlight, they can walk around in the sun, which causes them only minor discomfort. Stakes in the heart don't kill them, only paralyze them. The main character, Mick played by O'Loughlin, is not even very pale...he always has a nice tan. So why do I like the show? Although it seems like just another vampire show, the storyline of each episode is interesting and entertaining. And you can't help but like Mick. I think CBS realized that they found a star in O'Loughlin and signed a long term contract with him after Moonlight was canceled. So I'll be seeing him in another show. Oh, and I will follow him...there is no doubt about that.

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

My friend recommended Neverwhere to me recently. (If you plan to read the book, I suggest you not read this synopsis in this first paragraph that's coming up, because I liked the book more because I had no idea what was going to happen.) It's about a man who is accidentally thrust into a parallel universe that coincides with regular London, called London Below. There, he helps a girl find out who killed her family, so that he can somehow get back to London Above, the London we know now. It's an interesting concept. I still think it's kinda weird that London Below is only in London and nowhere else. I guess I'm more of a look-at-the-big-picture kind of person.

As I was reading it, my friend told me that she had the first season of Neverwhere . I realized it started out as a BBC show! Neil Gaiman (also wrote Coraline and Star Dust) was a scriptwriter for the show. After the show was canceled, Gaiman wrote the book! I watched the first episode. It's weird because it's basically the same-- almost every line!

I heard they're making a movie. It's all coming out in such a weird order! First a show, then a book, then a movie. All I know is, it's coming out in 2009.

The book was pretty good. I love adventure stories, so if you do too, then you'll most likely enjoy this book.

I give it 4 stars!

James Marsden Needs to Get the Girl

James Marsden is friggin' hot, but boy does he take a lot of movie roles where he doesn't get the girl. He's cute, charming and a heck of a singer. However, more often than not, he loses the girl to some other dude. Examples are Superman Returns, The Notebook, Enchanted and X-Men. Of course, it doesn't take away from the fact that he is excellent in all of them. James Marsden is a serial dumpee. He is too cute for that. So I say he needs to get the girl!

The Hunger Games Review 2

So I got around to reading The Hunger Games by Susan Collins yesterday. Once I started I couldn't stop. I actually finished it in one day (while traveling too). I didn't watch any TV're shocked, I know! The book is really short and an easy read. I actually recommend finishing it in one day if you can. The book is really fast-paced, so there is no good time to put it down...ever. I recommend this book for all ages, which is only Book I of a trilogy. If you don't believe me, then I have no choice but to include spoilers! The horror! Or you can read Laura's review posted back in February. If you'd rather get a recommendation from a well-known author, see Stephen King's review. Maybe he can convince you.,,20223443,00.html



WARNING!! (This means you, Tina and Wil)

Gripping. That's the word I'd use to describe this book. I've never called a book "gripping" before, but it's apt here. Once I started reading it, I was immediately captivated by the setting, heroine, and her struggles. I knew within the first page that I was going to like this book. Katniss (that's her name) is strong-willed, cunning and the oldest of her family (like me!). The time is the future although we don't know exactly when. The world has been devastated by war, and North America, now called Panem, has fallen to a dictatorship called the Capitol. Panem is divided into twelve districts. There was a thirteenth that was destroyed during the revolt. Katniss lives in District 12, the poorest of the districts.

Katniss wakes up every morning to hunt for her family and barter for goods in the town. However, this particular morning is different because it is the day of the Reaping, an annual and mandatory holiday. We don't know what the Reaping is initially, but we know that Katniss and her hunting partner, Gale, are terrified. Then everyone in town gather in the square, and the Reaping begins. Names of one girl and one boy from each district are randomly selected to participate in the most horrible and goriest fight of their life, which is televised for all to see. (It reminded me a bit of the short story called Lottery.) Somehow, Katniss becomes a tribute for District 12 and is taken away from her family to participate in the Hunger Games.

Okay, that is all the detail I can give you. I hope my review was "gripping" enough to make you pick up this book and read it.


I got Partini for my last birthday and I really like it. It sounds like a drinking game, but it's not. The added "ini" is very misleading. It's just a party game.

This game centers around 6 basic games. 'What not' is like Taboo except you have to describe the word saying what it is not. 'Mime Twist' is charades. In 'Hum Punch,' you hum a song and your team guesses. 'Clay Smoothie' you mold the word with clay to get your team guessing. 'Straight Up' is fun. Whoever's turn it is, rolls a dice that says things like: 'I like...', 'I want..', 'I am..', etc. Everyone else has to finish that sentence for the roller as best they can. Then the roller has to pick their two favorite. If they pick someone in their team, they get the point. Then there is 'Bouncers.' This game involves 2 balls and 5 cups. There are all different Bouncers games, but they all involve bouncing the ball.

I recommend this game for adults who have a lot of parties or get-togethers at their house. This game has a few bad words in it, so I'm serious when I say it's only for adults!!

Peanut Butter and Jam Joke on HIMYM

Because Alyson Hannigan just gave birth, the show had to find a way to explain her absence from the show. What they ended up doing was pretty genius and funny. Last night's episode started off with the guys, Ted, Marshall and Barney, laughing about a joke. In walks Lily. Barney wants to share the joke with her, but Ted and Marshall warn that she won't like it because it's a boy joke, meaning it's really really dirty. Barney tells her the joke anyway, asking "what is the difference between peanut butter and jam?" Older Ted is doing the voiceover and thus won't repeat the punchline. Lily is horrified and refuses to be in their presense for the next four weeks. Haha! I thought it was effective and made sense too.

I found out what the punchline is. It is soooooo dirty. But I will not repeat it here. =p Who do you think I am?

Other highlights from the episode (Spoiler Alert!):
- How Barney confessed to Marshall that he loves Robin: "I...wait for for for for it...with...wait for it...a...wait for it...certain..." So stinkin' cute!
- Marshall told Barney that Lily and he would sit on the same side of the booth, so Barney and Robin could sit together. Barney's reaction was "awwww..." That was what I was thinking.

Star Trek 05.08.09

This post is dedicated to one of my best friend who is a big Trekkie! (I hope you are reading this. Are you excited about the movie?) The movie looks pretty good. It's updated and more action packed. I don't know if it'll please die hard fans, but I think it'll still do well and draw the younger crowd. Also, I love Simon Pegg and John Cho! You go, guys. Zachary Quinto as Spock is just legendary. It's freaky how much he looks like Spock--the hair, the eyebrows. OMG!

I Get That A Lot: An April Fool's Special

On April 1st, CBS aired a one-time special called I Get That A Lot. Celebrities like Heidi Klum act like regular people working regular jobs. When people recognize them, they would feign a case of mistaken identity, repeatedly saying the line, "I get that a lot." The show was pretty cute and funny. The segment with Heidi Klum was my favorite. She is so cute and actually pretty hilarious. She was totally messing with people. One moment she was making googly eyes at some guy who eventually gave her his number. The next moment, she got this guy to say that she is thinner than Heidi Klum. Haha!

Other celebrities on the show were Jessica Simpson, Jeff Probst, Mario Lopez, LeAnn Rimes and Ice T. I thought they were all charming and likeable on the show. The concept is the same as Punk'd, I suppose. I thought Punk'd really showed the true colors of some celebrities. However, in this show, the celebrities are the ones in control of the situation and don't end up looking like dopes in the end.

I know this post is kinda 10 days too late. But I just had a chance to catch it online yesterday. You can see the entire episode on

Seth Rogan Is A Cutie Patootie!

Seth Rogan is starring in a film he wrote called The Green Hornet in which he plays a super hero. The film is still in production, so he is losing a ton of weight and is buffing up!Isn't he adorable now! Uh-oh! I see a new crush in my immediate future!

While looking for pictures of Seth, I found a couple random, but interesting, photos:One word: Scandalous

Superman Returns: The Good and the Bad

I stayed up kinda late last night watching Superman Returns. I am on the borderline of liking it and not. I hate when movies that have so much potential can get screwed up. An example is Spiderman III. Don't get me started. Hello, can you say silver platter?!? Yet these movies continue to be bad bad bad. Well, Superman Returns really falls right there in the middle. The biggest problem with Superman Returns is that it's kinda boring...two and a half hours of snoresville. Another problem is that it was a continuation of Superman IV that was made almost a decade ago. No one remembers it unless you are a comic book fiend. So instead of watching with a clean slate, you have to watch the movie with so many preconceptions. The glaring one is that Superman and Lois Lane were once in love. I didn't get that from the just had to know the back story.

Anyhow, there are gems here and there like the CGI and James Marsden. The number one for me is Superman himself. Brandon Routh is really the perfect Superman...he looks like Christopher Reeves for goodness' sake. I remember when I first saw the commercial for it, and I remarked who is that hottie mchottie?!? His Superman impression is pretty good--stone-faced, reserved, stoic. You may call that bad acting. But that's Superman, so it really worked for me. And even though he was emotionless, he exuded's no wonder Lois Lane fell in love with him. And so did I...

Captain Hammer Is Super!

Haha! I hope you like my cheesy title. My topic is really Nathan Fillion, but I couldn't think of anything clever. =(

I just have to say Nathan Fillion is so awesome. Joss Whedon discovered him, so he must be talented. (Exception: Sarah Michelle Gellar can't play anyone but Buffy.) I hope Nathan Fillon makes it in show biz. He has already been in one TV show that was cancelled prematurely. Ahem, Firefly. You gotta watch it! So recently I followed him to this new show called Castle. I was really skeptical that it would be any good because it seemed like just another cop show. The series premeire was meh, but then he really shined in all subsequent episodes. He is so darn charming and funny. He made a regular cop show actually watchable. I don't know if Castle will be his big break. Can he keep it up? I hope so. Or if not, I hope his next TV show is as awesome as he is.

Why Are Actors in Animated Films?

I've watched animated movies and sat there trying to pinpoint a voice. There's Artie from Shrek III who turned out to be Justin Timberlake and Chicken Joe from Surf's Up whose voice was Jon Heder's. Okay, I watch a lot of animated movies. And Justin Timberlake is not an actor. I admit it.

But I still want to ask when and why did actors start "acting" in animated movies? I don't understand why it is necessary. Do actors tied to movies really get more kids to watch? More adults? Are they any better than voice actors? I doubt it. I remember the days when Disney movies were actually drawn and when you didn't recognize the voices from somewhere else. I kinda liked it that way. I think it all started with Aladdin with Robin Williams as the voice of the Genie. Then it became the trend--JTT and Whoopi Goldberg in Lion King and Mel Gibson in Pocahontas. Now, it has become the standard.

I feel bad for all of those voice actors who are now out of work. That's messed up. Actors should just stick to feature films and leave well enough alone.

I recently fell in love with Mika's (pronounced Mee-ka) album, Life in Cartoon Motion. It's hard to explain the genre but I guess it's pop. His recent biggest hit is "Lollipop."

Some of my favorite songs are:
Grace Kelly
Love Today
Billy Brown
Big Girl (You Are Beautiful)

His songs are really catchy and poppy. Before you know it, you'll be doing the running man and shaking your booty to his music!

Random facts about Mika:
-He was born in Beurit, Lebonon
-He had problems with dyslexia when he was young
-His name is actually Mica, but he changed the "c" to a "k" because he was frustrated with people who had problems pronouncing his name
-His sister Yasmine, who works as an artist, painted the cartoon art for his album Life in Cartoon Motion, and she is currently a fashion designer.

Because I don't particularly love all of the songs on this album, I'll give it 4.5 stars. Sorry, Mika! I love you!

I Heart Hal Sparks

Hal Sparks was in town performing at a local comedy club. I just came back from the show, and he was awesome! He was really funny. He got the whole place laughing so hard. I am sure most people recognize him but just don't know where the hell you've seen him. He was one of the main characters in Queer as Folk. He was on Talk Soup for a short stint. And he was the bubble wrap guy in Dude, Where's My Car? I have been a fan of his since his days in Queer As Folk. I didn't realize he was a comic until recently and found out that he performed locally every once in a while. So I had to check him out! And thank goodness I did.

Before the show, I told my husband that I really wanted to get a picture with him. And I did it! He was standing around after the show. We almost passed by him without even knowing it. Luckily, I saw some people crowded around him. So I went up to him giddy-like and gave him an enthusiastic "HI!" My husband told me later that he imitated me. Haha! Hal Sparks made fun of me! How cool is that? I didn't even notice because I was too excited. Then I told him that I loved him in Queer as Folk. He said thanks...I think I recall. And I gave him a hug!! Then my husband took our picture! It was a good one too. Woohoo! It was awesome! I heart Hal Sparks.

Laura's Version of Robin's "Too Young for This Stuff" List

1. Wipe the kids' butts
2. Have the kids accidentally calling me "Mommy" (shudder)
3. Be sick of amusement parks
4. Be in love with celebs that are the same age as my sisters

4/1/09 Update by Tara:
Laura did not watch Monday's episode of How I Met Your Mother, so I will explain where this version of the list came from. Ted came up with the Murtaugh list and said he was too old for this sh...stuff. So Barney took it upon himself to do everything on the list in 24 hours. Then Robin came up with the "too young for this stuff" list, and Barney challenged Ted to complete it. Turns out that Ted makes a great "old man." It was easy for him to eat dinner at 4pm, sleep at 8pm, and take too long to pick up the phone. Haha! Anyway, it was a pretty funny episode.

I noticed how short Laura's list is. It's because she is too friggin' young to do a lot of things. Did I mention that I hate Laura? ;)

Laura's Murtaugh List

1. Still love N 'Sync.
2. Enjoy arts and crafts more than my nieces.
3. Call my mommy "mommy."
4. Talk like my three-year-old niece.
5. Participate in kids' birthday party games or Easter egg hunts.
6. Finger paint.
7. Sing Disney songs or rewatch the movies on occasion.
8. Actually laugh when I'm watching Drake and Josh with the kids (and Tina).
9. Like playing in kiddie parks.
10. Love moon bounces.

Tara's Suggestions for Laura's Murtaugh List
- Be considered a "kid."
