After Joe-Henry happened upon my computer, upon which I had posted a picture of his beloved Miss Lori (see post below), he scolded me but good. He can read, you know, so he knows I said something unkind. And really, after posting it, I felt bad. Like, karmically (sp?) bad. I truly do think she's probably a loving, talented person dealing with horrible direction. So Miss Lori, I apologize. Joe-Henry says the reason you act that way is probably because you feel shy and uncomfortable in front of the camera. If that's the case, well, you should get another job, but I digress.

So, I take it back. Miss Lori is NOT more annoying than Barney.

But these guys make me want to stick my head in an oven.

I'm thinking, girlfriend, that you oughta be thinking about ways to remedy the sorrowful state of children's entertainment. 'cause you and I both know you've got the chops.

AND you're looking to get back in the employment game.

just saying.

I'm sorry to tell you that B and I are sitting in our livingroom laughing our heads off.

Especially that bit where J-H found it and helped you understand why she is that way.

AND THEN when I followed the link

Thankfully we're pretty much stuck on Nick Jr. in this house, so it's a steady diet of Spongebob Squarepants, Fairly Oddparents and Drake and Josh (with a healthy dose of Backyardigans and Wonder Pets thrown in for Lucy).

You know, I still forget that Bailey can read as well as he can. He will come out with things after seeing them on magazines or in the mail or whatever, and I'm always slightly flustered. Same thing with the radio - I have to watch my morning DJs now when driving him to camp...he takes everything in.

In an unrelated note, I have taken to spelling certain words...around my dog. Rich caught me the other day saying "I'm going to take her out for a w-a-l-k later" and "did you bring over Dharma's t-r-e-a-t-s from the other house?" He finds this tremendously amusing.

Tracey - It cracks me up that you're spelling around your dog. My in-laws do the same thing with their dog. I wonder if that would work for Lulu -
"Stop S-H-I-T-T-I-N-G on the C-A-R-P-E-T !"

Thanks Joe-Henry, for your unconditional support. Truthfully sometimes I do get shy, but I always feel at ease when I am with children. Children are open, honest, and non-judgmental, but most importantly they are loads of fun and incredibly imaginative.

I hope that you are enjoying your summer. Keep up the good work with your reading. Words are the window to the world!

Your Friend,

The Giggly Miss Lori

PS Don't be too hard on your Mom. Moms are human. We all get exhausted and annoyed sometimes. It's great that she has this blog as an outlet. We should all have a safe place to go to express our true feelings. Don't worry, I don't take it personally. :)

Let Your SMILE Shine On!

Miss Lori
