Short on Brain Power

Yeah, Abe, that's about how I feel right now too. I have severe shortage of brain power right now for writing, from handling all day a squirrelly boy who did not sleep well last night in his new room that is much brighter than the old one, from eating way too many tater tots tonight at Kennedy School and from really wanting to go watch the new 30 Rock that I know is waiting for me on Tivo.

I did want to share quickly that fantastic and funny book I'm reading so you can all rush out an buy it and make this mom a million bucks for her brilliant ideas.
She deserves it.

On why not to let your kids have videogames on long road trips: A certain amount of boredom is necessary for a child's development, and will eventually spark a mental state known as "daydreaming...Many of the world's problems were solved in just this manner. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. Ms. Mellor lives in Los Angeles, and if I ever see her wandering the streets of Silver Lake (where I imagine her to live), I'll walk right up and kiss her.

This is what night-time looks like at the Rooney house, so I now bid you sweet dreams, a lovely morning, sharp thoughts in the day, tasty lunches, and plenty of laughs at the genius of Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin. Really: you should watch 30 Rock if you don't already. Off I go...

I love that book! Didn't she also write, "Baby, Fix Me a Drink"? Another classic.

Just don't go getting those two drinks mixed up - or maybe you already have which would explain Abe's face in that picture. :)

Cheers!

Well, I think that's hands down the funniest face I've seen all day! What a cutie (in a very tripped out way :) ).

It should come as no surprise that I too own that book -- as well as "Sippy cups are not for chardonnay." Who says???
