Thank Goodness She's Pretty

I was going to blog about Miss California's extremely poor response to a question posed by Perez Hilton during the Miss USA pageant Sunday night. Ken beat me to it, with my exact sentiments.

Cade's First Grade Class

I think I should be worried. Mallorie, who is only 16, knew that (apparently) today is National Pot Smoker's Day. Did you know that? I certainly didn't, and I dated a pot-head in the early 1990's! I lived with him for a year!! He never used the term, nor celebrated April 20. With him every day was pot smoker's day!

KLT Auditions

We, and by we I mean Kernersville Little Theatre, had a great turn out tonight for You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown auditions. I was so excited that AJ came out. It was great to see some KLT regulars - Liz, Jean and her daughter Elizabeth, Lee Ann, and Jean. I was thrilled to see Zach, Carlos and Gwen. They've done a number of shows with West Side Civic Theatre and The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem, so I'm glad they are auditioning for KLT. There were several new faces too.

I queued them for their musical auditions, and then everyone read either the Charlie Brown or Sally monologue. Based on the talent, I believe Lori and Marie, who are our director and music director respectively, will have difficult choices.

Here are a couple of pictures I snapped at auditions.

Sittin' In The Driveway

Burger King Commercial

I had just put Cade to bed and returned to the living room for "my time" with the TV. I had the remote in my hand and was just about to change the channel from Nickelodeon to American Idol when this commercial began.

My mouth dropped open. Not at all sure of what I had just witnessed, I pressed rewind (I love my DVR for this reason!) and watched again. OMG! The Burger King just placed a square on that lady's rear! And Sir Mix-a-lot did say booty...on Nickelodeon! I was stunned. Are they really trying to sell Burger King Kids Meals (with Spongebob and Patrick as the toy)? Yes, we all know Spongebob has a square bottom, but is promoting that really going to sell meals?! And I can't believe they followed Sir Mix-a-lot's video so closely - the way those girls were dancing! And with sponges(?) in their pants?! I was thankful Cade was upstairs sleeping.

I must be getting old, I thought, shaking my head as I changed channels. I must have turned into a prude last Tuesday.

Alas, this morning I log into AOL and find I'm not the only one wondering if the Burger King ad is inappropriate for kids.
