Confession time

I? Love Disney's High School Musical.

And at this very moment, my children, ages 12 and 9, are watching Sesame Street (I know, I know) and we've discovered that Ernie has no nipples. Also, it pleases me to hear Elmo sing "Figaro".

Now you.

In other news, I heard that Lois Lowry's Newbery Award winning novel, "The Giver", is being made into a movie. This is one of the best YA books I've ever read. You should read it. Think "Handmaid's Tale" for jr. high.

Relatedly, Lowry's "Number the Stars" is under controversy and may be banned from a school because, oh the horror, it contains the word 'damn'. Imagine that, a book for middle-schoolers about the Holocaust containing such strong language. Can't they tone it down?? Sheesh.

What's new and exciting in your life? What movies are you watching lately? Would any of you be interested in having my kids come live with you for the rest of the summer, because I'm getting next to nothing done and they are driving me crazy.
