Stories of My World.  
Today is The Boy Cousin’s 13th birthday! He was born in the year 2000. I don’t even know what to do with the fact that my little man who I used to hang with every Friday night is a teenager now. But anyways, something the other day reminded me of this story of when he was about two or so and I was at his house with a bunch of people and we were all watching Jaws. He was in his room playing toys and idk if it was the Jaws music or the people screaming, but he comes toddling out into the living room, looks at the shark on the screen and then walks over to his mom and puts one very serious little hand on her knee and goes, “You scared?” He then proceeded to go around the room doing that to each person, “You scared?” and if you said, “Yes,” he would pat your knee and go, “Is okay.” Anyways, Happy Birthday, Bug!

In other news, C (my friend from therapy) and I were talking about one of our TV shows the other day while she was doing my ultrasound. It went something like this…

Me: How far have you gotten?
C: That whole scandal with the cop just happened.
Me: Oh yeah. That was good. But, have you gotten to the stuff with her brother?
C: Oh, he just got shot at the end of the last episode.
(simultaneously) Me: Omg, when he got shot! - C: I couldn’t believe that!
Just at the exact second that K came walking past our booth. He stops suddenly, turns his head, looks at us, opens his mouth, shuts his mouth, turns and walks away. I guess he decided he didn’t want to ask, after all.

In final news, my mother is really into this old show, The Unusuals. I picked it up for like $12 cuz Jeremy Renner, hello. But my mom was crazy for it back in the day and upon rewatching it as well. So she constantly calls me to talk about it even though I can’t actually remember much of the plot aside from Jeremy’s character owned a diner. Finally I say to her, “Mom, I don’t remember a lot of this stuff. You need to get on the internet about this show.” And she says to me, “What do the internet and TV have to do with each other?”

I explained that there are places on the internet where you can talk to other people who enjoyed the show too. And that since Jeremy Renner has recently risen in fame from The Avengers and The Bourne movie, that there are many people just discovering The Unusuals for the first time who are just as excited to talk about it right now as she is.

But yep - What do the internet and TV have to do with each other. /shakes head/

Cute kid cousin, my kid cousin sucks big time (little selfish prick with no respect and low IQ, he once kept banging his head into the table because my mom didn't want to do something for him, my mom just walked by him with "not my kid, not my head, if he wants to hurt himself and act like an ass I don't care" - my mom is awesome, won't take his shit).

HEEEEE!!! K!!! *is an embarassing fangirl*

Ha, clueless mom :-D
You should find a forum or something for her (preferably one where she can't find you) :-D

The Boy Cousin was the first kid born in the next generation of our family, like he is my cousin's kid actually, so the generation below me. Because he was the first born, we all smothered with him love and spoils as a little guy. (my other cousin got stepdaughters a few years later who are older than the Boy Cousin, but they weren't in the family as toddlers, so they sadly missed out on being spoiled). The Boy Cousin was a riot when he was little, still is actually. He is lagging behind in school and stuff but he is still the nicest most interesting kid.

Yeah, your kid cousin sounds like he thinks he is the King of the World and should always get his way. That's no fun. (hahaha, your mom is awesome!)

lol /pats your little fangirl head/ ;)

I know, I need to hook her up with something like a TV chat room or something. My mom is a fangirl who doesn't know she is a fangirl actually - (you should hear her talk about Gilmore Girls) - and I think Livejournal would be just the home for her, but no fucking way she gets to be in a club that I'm already in! lol I bet there are places through Facebook that talk about TV but she doesn't know how to use her Facebook!

He's a dick, you can say it, we all know it, I see a lot of punching his face in his future.
Very punchable.

Oh! The Unusuals! That show rocked! It's available on dvd? I didn't know that, I need to hunt it down.

she says to me, “What do the internet and TV have to do with each other?” rotflmao *recovers* what about TWoP (television without pity) for her? If it's even still around. (Checks duckduckgo, it is, televisionwithoutpity.com)

I am going to rewatch it myself now as well. I remember a few things about it - Jeremy Renner was a hotass and he came downstairs in a tank top to his diner all half-asleep in one scene, and also Harold Perrineau and Adam Goldberg (LOVE!) were really fucking funny together. I remember one story line really pissing me off towards the end, but mostly it was just a fun cop show, so different than the other cops show I watch usually.

It hasn't been available on DVD for a long time but just very recently - like since Jeremy Renner became a 'name' - they seem to have slapped it together. It's only 13 episodes but it was also only like $10 or $12 on Amazon so that was a good deal.

rotflmao *recovers* what about TWoP (television without pity) for her?

Hmmm, would people still be on there talking about something as old as The Unusuals? I was kind of directing her to look for Jeremy Renner fansites since a lot of those people have just discovered The Unusuals for the first time. I'll have to look at TWoP!
