Watching YO! MTV hits, which is showing clips of old Yo! MTV Raps shows from 1989-1990 (my junior year in high school), which leads to videos from Biz Markie, LL Cool J, A Tribe Called Quest, etc. Which leads me to search old skool videos on YouTube, which leads me to this: Fraggle Rock meets DJ Kool's Let Me Clear My Throat (live).
And YES, I was doing the Ed Lover Dance. Tori, who had been watching all this silliness, just said, "Mom...you're NUTS"!

Now I can send back-dated emails, and they'll show up in correct chronological order in your inbox! Everyone who knows me knows that I'm always late...now I'll have my "out". I quote Miriam S., one of Google's Beta users:
The entire concept of 'late' no longer exists for me. That's pretty cool. Thanks Gmail!
On a similar note, I logged onto Blogger a bit ago, to find even more internet goodness: Google Weblogs! If you're a Blogger, well...blogger ;-), click on the Check it out link at the bottom of this page, for more info on this cool new way to blog. This will be perfect for me! Take a look at this, from the above link:
Don’t limit yourself to “reverse chronological” publishing. Our advanced Google algorithms put your best content at the top of your blog. Even if your later work goes downhill your previous posts will still shine.
(OK...I seriously fell for this one. Yep, I got TayRolled!)
Now playing: Rufus Wainwright - April Fools
Thursday, March 27, 2008
Yes, another Rufus video. NO, it has nothing to do with Autism, or my kids, or unschooling, or homeschooling, or what-have-you.
It just makes ME happy, and it's my blog and all that. Don't watch, I don't care. DON'T fall in love with this delicious gay man...goddess knows one 35 year old, married Mom to four, rabid fan is enough.
The poor baby.
Oh, BTW...Happy (Gay) Friday!
If you subscribe to HBO, you should really catch this documentary. If you don't subscribe to HBO, you should...at least for the month, just so you can maybe catch it. ;-) I think it's available on HBO On Demand now.
EDITED 4/1/08: I just found that Autism: The Musical is available online! Check it out!
Dear God. I cried through the whole thing. I even laughed through some of it! And I fell in love with Wyatt, a sweetheart of a kid with a bully at school and a penchant for the word "dick" (he's the first little boy in the clip, on the swing). A couple of the kids reminded me of Ash, but it was Loryn I kept thinking about, and the big questions that the film brought home for us: What happens when Dave and I are gone? Will she ever have "real" communication? Will she ever live on her own? Is it enough, just to love her the way she is?
One of the questions I've asked myself ever since she was little, and we knew Autism before we got the official word from the docs: Will she ever say, "I love you, Mommy"?
The answer is yes. Yes. YES! Two nights ago, out of the blue, she told me she loved me.
So, there's that.
