This one will be shorter, I promise

Today, I sang at Mass

then I taught a session about protecting children from sexual abuse (church volunteers are required to attend this training)

then two families came over to our house for swimming, playing, dinner, dessert, playing (6 adults, 8 kids; tri-tip, chicken sausages, salads, watermelon, grapes, ice cream sandwiches; the three moms get together frequently but we wanted to get the husbands together - do you ever do that? try to jump-start your husband's social life?)

then Hubby put the kids to bed while I went to rehearsal (Oh how I love singing Pretenders songs)

So last night I saw something funny on SNL. Christopher Walken was the host, and he is fun to watch because he's so strange! It bugs me how he stares at the TelePrompTer the whole time, though. But in one sketch, he made me cry with laughter. I can't embed it, but click here to go watch the strangeness!
People love to bash SNL and say "it's not funny anymore," but they have always said that. The truth is, it's hit and miss and it always has been. The hits are worth the misses for me! And, Panic!AtTheDisco was the musical guest. I like how they dress. Very dandy.

Friday night, there was a big party in the backyard next door (they have teenagers and young adults). The one that my daughters' window is practically on top of. (I have nice grammar at 11:40 pm) There was a live band and there was rapping involved. You could hear it LOUD AND CLEAR in the girls' room. So, we put the girls on a mattress on the floor of The Boy's room, which is on the opposite corner and away from the noise. All of the kids were very excited. Hours later, when the band was done and the party noise was just a hubbub of conversation, the younger two children were still awake and each saying the other "won't let me fall asleep." We put everyone back in their own bed. So, that was fun.

And, continuing the walk backward in time, Project Runway debuted its new season this week!!! Hooray and Hallelujah. I have loved this show since I first caught it in the middle of the night nursing a few-days-old Boy. That was Season I. Jay McCarroll! Austin Scarlett! Austin was the guest judge on this week's Season V premiere. He is such a dear. Talk about a dandy dresser!

Well, it was a little bit shorter...

I adore Christopher Walken, and I watch SNL regularly (or at least until I fall asleep) and I always get at least one laugh.
