This past weekend, I worked
as if I were a slave for free for my husband on several different catering gigs. It was actually a lot of fun since when you are feeding people, they are usually happy. We even got to meet the real-life version of Lorraine Swanson (a character on Mad TV).
She was just lovely… and by lovely I mean it took everything ounce of patience not to push her out to the lake and hold her head under water.
I probably missed my chance to be a hero. It must suck to be old and crotchety.
In between catering jobs, my mother and I went to see a movie and she picked Precious. It was a great movie; however,
I despise leaving a theatre with a red, snotty nose it was so sad! I’ll never look at quiet, withdrawn students in the same way.
To counteract the sadness I felt at the theatre, I came home and watched a movie from Netflix
that has been sitting on my TV for 3 months. Why did I not know Ordinary People was so glum?
And what is it with the
crappy sucky mean mothers in both these movies? Come to think of it, Lorraine Swanson kind of looks like the witch cow mother in Ordinary People.
I knew I should have held her head under water.
