Friday Randoms

1- Nolan's new favorite thing to do in the morning while we're getting ready for the day is play his computer game. He's still trying to figure out the mouse. He's fine until he gets up against the edge of the table. He can't quite grasp the "pick it up, move it and start again" thing. I find myself getting annoyed about that, and then I realize, with that one exception, MY 2 YEAR OLD CAN USE A MOUSE. And then I calm down and thank PBS for making this game. He is entertained for as long as I'll let him be. . . and sometimes that's an hour. . .

2- This stupid diet is doing very weird things to my hair and nails. . . hopefully it's a short lived change. . . but if anyone has any good suggestions for volumizing shampoos and conditioners, my hair would appreciate it.

3- So, we started watching Mad Men this week. . . and I know I'm going to get flogged for saying this. . . but I don't get it. We're only through one disc, 3 episodes, but I don't get the hype. It's well written, mostly well acted, and the art direction is gorgeous.. . but I don't care about ANY of the characters. It's funny for a little while to laugh at how much people smoked and the female/male dynamic in the 60's. . . but where does the really compelling stuff start happening? When does it start becoming something I can't wait to watch again?

Those of you that love it need to enlighten me so I don't give up.

4- We are up to our eyeballs in preparation for PhotoCamp Utah in 2 weeks. It's a good thing Ben has graphic design skills, because he's been putting them to use big time this week. I can't wait to see our Moo Cards! Cross your fingers for us that this event leads to some awesome business for us.

5- The Oscars are on Sunday. And, per tradition, we are having an Oscar party, complete with ballots, food, and prizes. I'm pretty sure Avatar is going to win. . . and that disturbs me. I haven't seen the movie, but out of principal, I don't believe a movie that has NO nominations for writing or acting can truly qualify in the Best Picture category. It may be amazing technically, but not Best Picture.

Try Nioxin shampoo and conditioner. A little pricey, but did wonders for my hair! Have fun at your party! Make sure to post pics of your Moo cards! I love those!

P.S. I watched all of Season 1 of Mad Men, too, and ditto. I don't get it.

I did NOT rent Season 2. The end. I keep meaning to tell you this. Oops.
