Happy Mother's Day

This little angel is prepared to do battle should the scary monster come out and try to frighten her. I admire her resolve.

I found this first one on Manola Blablablanik's blog, "Sex And The Beach," (a beach upon which I could so easily play Hooky!) and promised I would credit her with the discovery. So.




And if you haven't seen Will Ferrell's short video, "The Land Lord,"then you are missing another angel straight from Heaven, Pearl.

The Landlord

If you listen very carefully, you can hear Pearl's real mother laughing under her breath near the very end. And then of course you see Pearl turn toward where her mother is hiding around the door and say, "Come, Mommy." Too cute.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all mothers and to all children of mothers as well. All you others can just wait for your own special day somewhere else.

MANOLA B-B-B-N: Funny how I hadn't seen it anywhere else. Still haven't. Maybe my readers will enlighten me with other sightings. Thanks for the smile.

SINGLETON: Isn't that just so awesome?

LOGO: Both of 'em, indeed.

LIME: Black heart, through and through.

LIME: That's funny cuz I thought you meant scared.

Don't you love little kids and their solutions to problems.

ok, i should not type comments at that hour of the day. i wish i had *shared* rooms with the first girl because maybe she would have *scared* the monsters away. i am such a sad typist....

A bit confused here, we had Mothers day a while back, they haven't gone and got 2 days to themselves now have they. What happened to Father's rights? Oh and the sunglasses, took me in hook line and sinker.

that's just adorable!
people are raving about this movie... so, i have to see it!!

It's cute so long as she doesn't start telling the kids at preschool.

SHEILA: Yes. And that little look of insight when she is corrected. Like, "Oh. Okay. Yeah. I got it now. Thanks."

LIME: That's funny cuz I thought you meant bad typist.

QUILLY: Just the shape of her outfit scares me!

BAZZER: I got taken in hook, line and lead weight as well when I first watched it. But of course, it IS real you know. I learned from a Mexican yesterday that their Mother's Day is Diez de Mayo. As Durante used to put it: "Ah-cha-cha-cha-cha..EV-erybody wants tah git intah di act!"

MINDANCE: I thought that WAS the movie. ? And a wonder-filled day to you and yours as well, my dear friend.

SNAVY: And you are sooooo correct. Doubly correct as in your case.

I saw this video on another blog. It was kind of funny then. The other one I didn't find funny at all.

My mother would have kicked my ass if I had used language like that (in fact, I think she still would).

 
At Monday, May 14, 2007 at 7:13:00 PM PDT , Blogger lime said...

yeah, i am so bad it's truly sad....now aren't ya glad i cleared that all up?

(oh my stars! no typos! it's a miracle!)

Dr. John: So glad to see you here. I've seen you hither and thither. Whatever those words used to mean. I'm taking it you don't much care for child abuse? I'm opting for the belief that Pearl will in time slough her bad words through good parenting.

SOMEWHERE JOE: Yeah. I feel a little naughty laughing so hard. But boy do I laugh, each and every time.

JAY: Hey, Jay! If you listen closely, she's saying "ask." But we all know her good mommy won't even allow that. But how precious.

LIMERS: Well done! Here's your ears. You're an honorary----Limesketeer!

VICCI: Hey, did you watch both videos? The first one brings me to laughter tears. The second one some find somewhat disturbing. But I can hear momma laughing in the background and I am sure little Pearl will not be encouraged to continue to use her prompted language. Both girls are very, very strong and should become president and vice president some day, then switch roles for the third and fourth terms. Don't cha think?

I couldn't view the 2nd video for some unknown reason, but the first one sure was cute!

Shit! 2 posts in less than a week and I'mnot here. Figures.

 
At Tuesday, May 15, 2007 at 7:05:00 PM PDT , Blogger ARM said...

And the Landlord video is to die for. I die everytime I watch it.

 
At Tuesday, May 15, 2007 at 9:49:00 PM PDT , Blogger Gawpo said...

Oh, CLAIRE: What! You've got to watch it. Make it happen. Or just go Google: Will Ferrell The Landlord. It's worth it, believe me and Arm.

ARM: I waited until I knew you and Mr. Arm would be out of state. Heh-heh-heheheheh.

ARM: Me too! I watched it two more times today. And after I read your comment here, I went to the kitchen and was chuckling as I said to you in my way of having a conversation with someone who isn't really in the room, but who I imagine is standing right in front of me: "Gasp. Your're drunk." "I'm just buzzed." And I said it in as high pitched a voice as I could muster.

now, i see it. before the landlord wasn't there. i swear i'm not crazy. really i'm not.

I've watched that landlord one like 5 times now. It's one of the funniest things ever. I like the other one too. "If he's gonna come in here, he'll kick MY ass."

 
At Wednesday, May 16, 2007 at 9:15:00 AM PDT , Blogger ARM said...

I love it when he goes "Don't call me bitch! I'm a grown man!....God you're mean."

It's too classic.

Oh, and I'm too familiar with the having a conversation with someone who isn't really there. I do it all the time.

 
At Wednesday, May 16, 2007 at 9:46:00 AM PDT , Blogger Gawpo said...

MINDY: Riiiiigghhhhttttt.........

DEISEL: Yeah. And the way she throws her arms out to her side and shrugs as if to say, "Well, look...I don't really have any choice, now do I, Mother?" Delightful.

ARM: Yeah, and her haughty laugh.

I get so many letters composed to people by reading them aloud to them on my way to work. Too bad they never get to really hear or read those letters. But hey, at least they are being thought about, right?

TKMOTHEROFCHILDRENRELATEDTOJACKKEROUAC: I find your blog very interesting as well. And thanks for stopping by. Glad we have Mr. Ferrell's sense of humor in common.

KATIE: And you too, my dear and sweet friend!

ENEMY OTR: Yeah, well I have noneother than Manola to thank for that first one. But someone asked me if I'd seen the second one and so thought I'd post it for Mom's day. Thanks for showing up here. Delightful!!!

GRUMBLEBOGGER: You are preachin' to the choir. And I know you are a man of your word. Have some, please, so we can watch it happen.

CHIKKEN: That's the most sense you have made in the last month.

CANDACE: Yes, butts. I'm glad your Shellfish liked it.
