Lurking Over Brad's Shoulder

Brad Pitt is cute again! It's been nice of late to see the lack of unkempt hair and scruff that he affected for too many years. I caught the best scenes of "Mr. And Mrs. Smith" this week, and he, she, and the movie looked great. Of course, the acting chops have to be there, 'cuz it's mighty easy to get upstaged by a prettier face.

Not that long ago, I stood in Times Square as a tweeny squealed, “Mommy, Mommy, Mommy!” and pointed at a massive banner displaying Brad Pitt and costars looking over his shoulder, wearing the gear of Troy. “Mommy, it’s Orlando Bloom!”

Along the pre-teen thread, my co-worker was bemoaning that her daughter has outgrown Gymboree clothes. Very sad, as they now have to shop in the skank department.


Everyone seems to be writing about North American Delurking Week (well, I've seen it written as a "National" week by both Americans and Canadians, so I can't tell if there was any centralized planning or if this is a cool, grassroots initiative/urban legend. ! (Thank you to Ewe are Here for the icon.) I understand lurking, because there are certainly sites that I read where I don't comment. Ya don't have time to get involved with every single blog.

However, if you'd like to say a quick hi, feel free! You can tell me if you've noticed that a disproportional number of Q photos seem to feature him in stripey pajamas. Really, we do dress the kid and take him out sometimes.

Nothing wrong with the stripey pajamas pics, I'm partial to Ian in his, so cute! So, are you like me, and the only way I can find time to watch a movie is through renting them, or waiting for them on cable/satellite?

De-lurking now :)

Q is looking cuter everyday

Not delurking, of course, but hi there anyway!

Bwahahahaha re: skank department. My daughter is now in a size 10 and it's so true that some of the clothes out there boggle the mind. She has given up on begging me to take her to Limited Too or other purveyors of tiny hookerwear, but the search grows ever more complicated.

Hi Lady M,

Delurking now too. Yeah, I've been lurking for a little while since following the link from Lara's blog. It's nice to see all the cute and happy pictures of Q!

Lady M said...

Thanks, everyone, for dropping by!

Mamacita Tina - Yes, movies via Netflix. I think the last movie I saw in the theater was Harry Potter, last Christmas.

Mir - "Tiny hookerwear" is an excellent phrase.

Skank department: a major reason I'm glad I just have boys. *shudder*

I can help solve the skank problem: H&M has a lovely kids department. Infant straight up to size 14--clothes that will not end up making the kid look like a Bratz doll, that the kid will want to wear. Everybody wins. (And not to go all metablog, but Chickadee is a size 10??? Holy Crap. Diva Girl is the same age, and has just started rocking the size 6.)

Happy delurking Lady M. I'm votiong for "netional" next year.

Well then hi! And you know, I liked that movie. I don't care what the snotty critics said - it was a totally fun popcorn movie, and yeah, they're both easy on the eyes.

Lady M said...

Kimberly - Thanks for the H&M tip - I will certainly pass that along!

I've delurked long, long ago.

Yeehaw.
