Home Tour... sorta.... I mean, the one room that's left and all...

I know I promised a tour of the rest of my house. (Read: one more room)

But I didn't want to use this picture because it has laundry in it and who wants to use a picture that has that? I mean, what is my blog for if not to make others feel inferior about their own selves? sigh. I know, I can hear the shattering of your dreams and ideologies all around because I'M NOT ACTUALLY PERFECT....

WHAT an astonishing revelation.

And that's pretty much it. I know my mom wanted pictures of the outside of the house but that would require me remembering to take pictures of the actual outside of my house BEFORE I sat down to blog in the dark of the night.

In other news, it's Labor Day Weekend. AKA the last weekend before school starts. AKA the last weekend of my life not revolving around summer breaks for the next 20 something years.

Am I doing anything particularly memorable? No.

Do I know at all what I'm doing? Nope.

Do I at least have a suggestion for YOUR Monday? Why yes! Yes I do.

On Monday, September 7, WordGirl is premiering two brand new episodes* on PBS Kids Go! (check local listings for times)

The shortlings and I had the opportunity to preview both episodes, and we give it a big thumbs up. (In fact, I may or may not already have both episodes memorized, word for word, because we have had it playing continuously for the last two days.)

Violet (Maria Bamford, TV's "American Dad") and Becky compete for the coveted role of Juliet to play opposite the dreamy Hunter Throbheart (James Adomain, TV's "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson") in the school's production of Romeo & Juliet. Violet is cast as Juliet while Becky is the understudy. When the Energy Monster captures Violet, Becky must chose between the role of a lifetime and saving her friend.

*You know, so at the very least you can make plans to sit on the couch and watch TV together.
