my friend is on TV!

(technically my friend's sister, but she's my friend, too dammit!)

odd mom out is a new show on monday nights on bravo. written by and starring jill kargman, it's quirky, funny, smart and co-stars the (scene-stealing) newcomer KK Glick.

when i knew KK, she was called kristen. she is the 4 years younger sister of my best friend beth. the first time beth slept over my house in 7th grade, we made an Iroquois longhouse diorama and took screwdrivers around the house tightening all the screws on the light switchplates.

i slept in KK's bed dozens of times from 7th through 12th grade. she and beth shared a room and KK would often weekend nights sleep over a friend's house, leaving a free bed for me to poach. beth and KK have a cool older sister and brother, their brother in particular was himself a friendly allstar athlete and had lots of friendly allstar athlete friends who were always hanging around their house - it was basically heaven for a 15 year old girl, and i slept over there a lot.

back to KK - she was quite a bit younger, but still funny and not annoying - she was into sports and did her own thing with the acting - i remember seeing her do summer music as a little 10 year old kid, singing "Go to Timbuktu!" (Oliver, I'd Do Anything) and 'summer nights' from Grease. 

going to woodloch

we went on many vacations with her family - woodloch pines in the summer and killington in the winter. i wish i had some pictures that include KK with me here in NC, but instead here's my mom and beth riding in their maroon woody minivan to the poconos.

barney & oreo

the only other KK-related photo i have here is this, and this is a sad story which might end up on odd mom out someday - it's KK's christmas present bunny, named Oreo, we kept him overnight at our house for a day or two beforehand to help with the christmas surprise, here he is with my rabbit Barney. i think Oreo lasted about 1 day before he tragically died somehow of natural causes in his hutch. it was probably traumatic for KK.  pretty soon thereafter, they ended up getting Murphy, a small white ball of tail wagging fluff who loved to lick.

christmas 93

anyway, i am so proud of KK for following her dreams and landing this amazing role on major Big Time TV.  she plays dr. vanessa and is calm and hilarious. she is so much like her real self, it's hard to believe she is acting.

in last week's episode, they said my name! kind of.  jill is telling her husband to find love and remarry if she should die first, and she suggests he remarry 'lolly mctammany' - haha!  see the 30 second video here: Odd Mom Out

see KK saying funny things:

so maybe check out the show if you like to laugh. i'd like to nominate KK Glick for an emmy.  

in her honor, here is a video of van halen "dreams."

happy birthday, sugarhoney!

sugarhoney tot

today is the day our little sugarsnickers turns 1. it's also the day nachodoggy would have turned 12.

we were kind of hoping for a mini-nacho, and she has kind of delivered.

she does a couple things that nacho did, that the other dogs do not do.

she runs right down to the river and swims in circles in the exact same spot nacho used to do it. 

sugarhoney swim in circles

(see nacho swim in circles)

the other dogs wait on the bank until we throw something. nacho and sugar really seem to enjoy swimming, and get in for the joy of swimming.

if she is too hot on a hike, she lies down.

sugar cooling her underside

(nacho did the same thing)

of course, she is her own dog. she is so round, it's like she's made out of beach balls. i don't know if it's a female dog thing, but to me she is the shape of the olympic rings.

sugarhoney round

she is in love with pouncey. she follows him everywhere. she is constantly thinking of new and creative ways to vie for his attention. 

who bit my tail

she gets herself uphill from him and lets loose.

heeeey pouncey

she is not afraid to jump on the couch for a snuggle.


she is calm and gentle, she wags her tail when she meets new dogs and people, and she will come, sit, and lie down when she feels like it.

mainly she is just a little skunk who fits in riiiiight there.

three happy dogs

happy birthday, sugarchunks! today you will celebrate with a meatball!

WTF Wednesday: Nacho Face, Screaming Cat-Baby, Heino

Hola Wednesday! Hola WTF!

Let's begin with a scene from a baseball game. A foul ball went into the stands, and hit this lady in the nachos. 

nacho lady 2

A full minute later they flash back to her again and she still has nacho cheese all over her face! None of her nitwit friends told her. 

I abide by the "see something, say something" rule when it comes to food on friends' faces. 

Moving right along to tongue out Tuesday.
