Mother's hearing problems are more often than not a source of annoyance, but sometimes there is amusement.

We ended up in hysterics today while watching Grey's Anatomy. Callie said about Arizona - "butterflies on her scrub cap." Mother heard "butterflies on her scrotum."

...a total nut.

Dad bought a walking stick to help with his balance while walking, and mum was just walking around with it and said, "Who am I? House!" And then she said she'd forgotten something and walked back across the room pretending to pop pills.

Her other trick is heavy breathing/wheezing when the wheels on the ironing board squeak, aka Raines (The Pretender).

Finished my season 3 The Pretender dvds tonight. I'd forgotten how good the finale, "Donoterase", was.

That gorgeous scene of Miss Parker with Jarod clone, and then later talking to Syd about him and the look on her face. And Jarod pretty much sacrificing himself to get Parker to safety. She had some fabulous outfits - especially the leather pants/long leather coat/(snake skin?) shirt. And Parker and Broots and their cute little asses (I have a little thing for Parker/Broots - she'd kill him, but he'd get a thrill).

Actually my sister's now asking for Dean (Supernatural)/Miss Parker fic, if anyone wants to help out... In my case, if anyone can direct me to some Dean/Ellen...

Watching Heroes last night, mum cracked us up. Only the Aussies will get this, but she's decided Mr. Bennet is a ringer for one of our former federal pollies. She just pointed out the resemblance to start with, and then starting referring to moments in the episode with, "you know when Mark Latham..."

*

So so tired of this bloody humidity. Even though it was low 20s (low 70Fs) today, the humidity made it uncomfortable. The last week we've been averaging high 20s-low 30s (80-90F), and with over 70% humidity, it's been close to unbearable. February sucks, though even January was on the unpleasant side.

discussing Hi-5 at the Carols -
Mum: They're tarts.
Sister: They're tarts with wings.
Mum: They just need a pole.


while dishing up Christmas dinner -
Mum: It's a free range chook. Well not now. Its range is quite limited.


discussing my interactions with Lara -
Brother: I no longer think you'll eat your young. You might still bite the head off the bloke you have sex with. And you can put that up on livejournal.

Watched the first 3 episodes of my season 1 Medium dvds today. My sister hadn't seen them; I think I enjoyed them more than the first time I watched them on tv. The fabulous relationship between Allison and Joe was there right from the start.

It's amazing how much the girls have grown up in just a year or two. And the gag reel was funny, and Maria Lark (Bridgette) is hilarious. The new deputy mayor was actually in the pilot episode as a Texas Ranger, she accompanied Allison on the plane. And the first episode with Detective Scanlon - was so funny when Lee went off on Allison and then they would only talk to each other through Devalos. How their relationship has developed :)

*

My mother is a nut. I got an autographed photo of David Cubitt (Scanlon) in the mail today, there was also a little photo of him that was taken when the photo was signed. Mum liked that more and complained when I said she couldn't have it ;) She put them in the album (I have a number - wonderful Mum has organised them all - autographed photos, non-autographed photos, clippings), stroked the little photo, and said something along the lines of "handsome little man". And then as she was closing it, she said, "Stay away from that hussy on the next page." I've got a gorgeous photo of Melinda Clarke (Lady Heather - CSI) in a beautiful red dress lying back on a bed there ;)

I love my mother. She bought a plate stand today so I can finally display my autographed Giles plate (that I bought last year). And she told me she bought a second, just in case I manage to get the Spike plate... When we booked for the Jewel Staite con, she immediately said that maybe I could get the Spike plate there. She didn't bat an eyelid over what I paid for the Giles plate, just asked why I didn't get the Spike plate too ;)

I don't know why, but was exhausted at work today, and it's only Monday. A couple of my workmates were as well. Maybe the weather.

Watched Gilmore Girls dvds tonight. And laughed way too much during The Reigning Lorelai, mum was doing her Mutley impersonation. Maybe because my great aunt died over the weekend and mum has been singing, "Ding dong, the wicked witch is dead," and saying that my aunt and uncle have to go to the funeral (it's in Perth) to make sure she'd dead. Yes, we're terrible.

My mother is like, 12.

I can't remember when it started, whether it was with Buffy or Tru Calling, but she's continuing with Firefly. She sees 'Brian Wankum' in the end credits, giggles and repeats the name. And if she doesn't, I say, "I'm waiting."

I wrote a letter to TV Week for mum:

Did Channel Nine waste so much money sending the "interviewer" to Hollywood that they couldn't afford to pay someone to put together a proper summary of the missing years of 'Days of Our Lives'? The catch-up special was a kick in the teeth for long-time viewers with five minutes of useful information.

Thanks, Nine, for cutting four chapters out of the middle of the book and only giving us a couple of disjointed sentences in return.


Thought "interviewer" was slightly more conciliatory than "blonde bimbo in her tight dress" as mum called her.

And I added the below to the bottom of the email:

P.S. As TV Week is a stable mate of Channel Nine, do you publish letters critical of them? While the TV Week summary of the missing years was more informative than the tv special, it still raised more questions than it answered.

I'm taking bets that it won't be published.
Had several published in the past, and won the $100 once, as did my sister.

Was watching the story on the DNC on the late news last night and mum said, "The two Johns. Are they anything like the two Ronnies?"
*not sure how many of the USers know the Two Ronnies*

***

As soon as you turn on the radio/stereo/tv, CJ starts whistling and chattering away.
And they love corn on the cob.

***

Where the fuck do all these fanfic authors (I shudder to use that expression in relation to them) get the idea that Jed desperately wanted/wants a son?
And as for the trainwreck from that idiot that I've had run-ins with...her characters are unrecognisable, the storyline is so far off the rails...and yet she has others praising her and wanting more?
It eludes me.

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate.
After Santa coming around on the fire truck, and just watching the Melbourne Carols with Ray, feeling more Christmasy.

Though mum destroyed Amazing Grace on the carols...the singer, Michael Cormick said to raise the candles, and mum said to the tv, "No, we're not performing pigeons." We spent most of the song bursting into hysterics.
And then I spent the next 2 hours trying to remember the name of Bert's (of Ernie and Bert fame) pigeon. I think it's Bernice.
And how the hell does Marina Prior still manage to have such a gorgeous voice when she's so heavily pregnant? Isn't the baby pushing up on her diaphragm? Wonder how many days after this one will be born.

Scrubs can make me go from laughter to tears like that.

And my sister's announcement for the night:
Santa Claus has been shot down after flying too low over the White House.
