Conversations with my Kid

The following is an actual conversation I recently had with my son*. 

The most awesome son ever:  Hey, you should ask Lulu (not her real name) to ask Wayne Coyne if I can take him to lunch. Maybe it will help that I'm in college now?

Me:  Would probably be more helpful if you had actual cash to take him to lunch with?

Awesome son:  I can spare some money for WAYNE COYNE. Gosh..

Me:  lol   You're so cool.

Awesome son again:  Seriously though.

Oh. My. Gawd - Thank the Good Lord

I just read this article - Filming of Jon & Kate kids halted.

I swear to god I have never been so sick of stupid TV drama since the days of Anna Nicole.  Through all of their bullshit I have thought often of those kids, what they are being told, etc.  They have lived their entire lives in front of a camera with parents who's only talents seem to be the ability to massively procreate.  Their dad stepping in and putting a stop to it is finally the right thing to do, even if he did time it badly to the point of making it look like it is just sour grapes, since he was basically being phased out... although phasing out the father of 8 kids would be a bit of a difficult task.  I guess he put them in their place, didn't he.

I think I like him more than the fame grubbing mother.  Even if her haircut did get Jessica an enormous amount of blog hits.

Maybe they will all go away now.
