Pieces of April

OMG. I didn't think this would be so funny, and I know it's not supposed to be, but there have been two scenes in the movie 'Pieces of April' that have made me laugh out loud.

The first is when the family is in the car eating Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and the mother asks 'How can anyone not believe in God?'. I feel that way when I eat one.

The second is April trying to make mashed potatoes. She's never made them and doesn't know how to do it. You see her cutting up the potatoes, then she has the masher and can't quite get it through the potatoes. STILL RAW! Didn't know to cook them! I'm not sure why I found this so damn funny, but it was.


On my more 'real' side, the launches last night went great. We had a couple of hiccups, but they were easily solved. We got all of our web sites out with the new branding!!! If you want to see the branding on the public sites, you can go to http://www.sun.com. That's not one of mine, although I do have some content areas on it, but my sites are all password-protected for partners, so no way to show them. :) I'm so relieved it all went good!!!

Now on to the next big launch! It never ends. I guess that's why they call it 'work'

My attention span kept wandering when we watched Pieces of April, but I laughed myself sick when she tried to mash uncooked potatoes.

The day before my first married Thanksgiving, our neighbor came over to ask if she could borrow our masher. I told her I used a mixer to make mashed potatoes and her eyes went so wide that Himself laughed, then we took her out and bought her a potato masher and a few other kitchen utensils.

Glad to hear the launches went well... and speaking of work, I'm still marveling at the fan pull you posted a picture of in a comment a few posts back.

Thanks. I would never have thought of fan pulls until
[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<lj-user=georgiaskydiver">') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

Thanks. I would never have thought of fan pulls until <lj-user=georgiaskydiver"> commissioned one for her son's room. We ended up doing a matching pair for his stars and moon theme. <a href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/georgiaskydiver/155758.html">She posted a picture of them</a>. It's fun, but it will never replace doing jewelry. :)

when my brain saw [Pieces of April] it miscontructulated it to read [Pisces of April] and I wondered why Trish-Bob suddenly lapsed into horoscopy.

... then my eyeballs took over and I saw the real words. Hmm. Must be the aftereffects of Paula being in town last week. She lives in Phoenix, ya know, so is a prime candidate for watching your grajification at the end of July. You don't mind if she invites 50 or 60 imperfect strangers to cheer at ya, right?

If didn't realize she was in Phoenix? Do you know how much it would mean to me even to have perfect strangers there? :)
