RTT: Disney is clueless, and Mother Nature is a tease

I wasn't going to participate in Random Tuesday Thoughts this week because Keely from The Un Mom has gone on hiatus, but apparently Stacy at Stacy Uncorked is picking up the torch until Keely decides to return.

Is anyone else upset over the fact that Jennifer Garner has been cast to play Agatha Christie's iconic Miss Marple? Apparently Disney is in the works to "reboot" the character to give her "youthful and more modern spin". Bad idea? I think so. The age of the character matters because it is what makes Miss Marple such a success. Her years of experience in St. Mary Mead and the time that she has spent observing human nature is what makes her so successful at what she does. (That coupled with the folks who underestimate mental abilities and view her as a batty old lady who knows nothing). If they were going to “reboot” the character, then why not just create an entirely new character altogether? Am I the only one who feels this way?

Owen just called me into Ben's room. He and Ben are sitting in the glider chair together, cuddling. (Awwww). But then he tells me that Ben is picking his nose. No. That Owen used Ben's finger to pick his nose. Gross. Boys will be boys.

I am so excited to be planning my twin sister's baby shower! She is due in August and her shower will be in June. Last night she shared a few ideas with me, including a color scheme. The wheels are in motion now. In fact, it took me nearly two hours to fall asleep last night because I couldn't stop thinking about ideas. It's not going to be a "typical" baby-baby shower; she wants something a little more "sophisticated". I'm on board with her in that regard, but some other ideas, we'll have to see how they pan out. Just call me Twinzilla.

 Anyone watch the American Idol results show last week? I know that I had previously vowed only to watch the last five minutes of it, but I'm so glad that I decided to watch the whole thing. How awesome was the appearance of Hulk Hogan after learning about James Durbin's obsession with wrestling? (Don't misunderstand me here, I am neither a fan of Hulk Hogan's, nor of pro-wrestling. I just think that it was such a surreal moment for James to have experienced). And what's up with those results? How is it possible that Haley and Naima were not in the bottom three?

 I woke up to find snow on the ground. It's been in the mid-20s this past week. What happened to the 50 degree weather we had last month? It feels more like January than March. Will spring never arrive?

I had the opportunity to "drop-in" on two Zumba classes last week. I've taken the class before and love it, but don't really have the money to take it again this session. One of my friends is taking the noontime class, but wanted to stop by the evening class last week. She invited me along (and even paid for me the first night!). It was so much fun! I miss Zumba. And dancing in general. Guess I'll have to host a few more dance parties at our house to get my fix in.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

  1. I'm seriously considering getting Just Dance for the wii. I think it would get us all moving and that would be a good thing.

  2. A friend of mine has the kid's version of Just Dance, and even that looked like fun. Unfortunately, we do not own a Wii.

  4. Kristine, it is so much fun! And a lot of work, if you get the right instructor. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. What? Jennifer Garner as Miss Marple? That just seems so wrong...

    I had to crack up at the image of the boys cuddling so nicely - only to be informed one was picking the others nose. They're hysterical!

    Zumba sounds like so much fun! And I'm looking forward to reading/seeing (hint: pictures) of your Twinzilla baby shower. ;)

    Loved the video - your boys are so stinkin' CUTE!

    Thanks so much for the huge shout-out and for linking up - same time next week...here's hoping Keely's hiatus is a short one! ;)

  6. I don't even know who Miss Maple is. And I'm so glad you're Twinzilla. I was afraid that was going to be me. But I can just sit back and relax about the whole thing now, right? Aside from the guest list. Phew.

  7. I've done Zumba before. It's fun, but it reminds me that I have NO rhythm.

  8. Yeah, the Jennifer Garner thing is weird.
