31 More Thoughts on Fuller House

full house

So I binge-watched the rest of Fuller House. I had so much fun hearing feedback from all of you about the show,  I thought I would type out my thoughts again. Here we go….

  1. Mother’s Intuition is a genius name for a tracking app. I’m sure someone is already working this up.
  2. Stephanie’s Coachella episode = Jesse’s ski trip episode.
  3. The Holy Chalupas catch phrase is not working for me.
  4. Ramona’s middle school dance team is very exclusive. Only four members?
  5. What a great stunt double they found for Candace! Did they do this scene just because they found a doppelganger stunt double?
  6. Now I want some boyfriend jeans and Keds. And all the rest of DJ’s clothes.
  7. Boobs, buns, plumbing innuendo, and “damn”….Candace is getting unfollowed by all the Pharisees and the Sadducees this week.
  8. #teamsteve
  9. Another satisfying Olsen twin shout out.
  10. A missed opportunity to educate the teen boys of this world about the abuse of body spray.
  11. Mary Kate and Ashley are going to sue for being blamed for designing that pink dress.
  12. Steph gets a telemarketing call from the 90’s about long distance?
  13. I love the Lucy and Desi thing Kimmy and Fernando have going.
  14. Washer/dryer combo is visible from the livingroom? I blame product placement. You too American Girl.
  15. Did the couch get smaller? That’s a love seat. (No, it is the same. I looked it up)
  16. Jesse and Becky have only been married two more years than I have?
  17. Candace doesn’t have the same screen kiss rules as her brother.
  18. The floozie principle is truth.
  19. Wish I had a Vine of my kid’s face when I told her that Steve is Aladdin. While he was talking. So great.
  20. The goodnight scene with the two guys and DJ is a new classic.
  21. What is with Tequila on this show? Are we supposed to be playing a drinking game?
  22. Uh oh. Didn’t anyone on staff know about the problem of cultural appropriation? This party is full of problems. Bollywood dancing is fun, but find another way.
  23. OH! Best moment so far. You oughta know which one I’m talking about.
  24. I’m on the last episode and I just got that Dj’s last name is Fuller. Anyone else?
  25. Kathy Santoni. That’s her name.
  26. Joey is still not funny.
  27. My preteen just mumbled, “I would love to spend the rest of my life with Uncle Jesse.
  28. IRL, Kimmy and Fernando would need lots of counseling to move forward.
  29. Now I want to eat a giant cake without cutting it. Just me, friends, forks and cake.
  30. Aww…Steve should be winning her over with the “Donna Jo” move.
  31. When is season 2?

I’m Home and I Brought You Something!

a new favorite

I am home from my great trip away. Now it is time to make up for the time lost around here. Because there is so much to do, I am just going to share a video with you today. I say “just” but this video could improve the quality of your life, like it did for me. I’m behind the curve on music so this music is not new, only new to me. I hope you enjoy Joy Williams and John Paul White, better known as The Civil Wars.

The Coolest People in the World

all 20 of them

The first thing I remember to thank God for on Thanksgiving is that there is only one minute of travel involved in going to Grandma’s house. When I say Grandma, I mean my mother. She only lives around the block. Every time I get in the car to go there for a holiday, I thank God sincerely for not having to travel on the holidays. God bless all of you who get out there on the roads for your families. I would if I had to but I’m so glad I don’t have far to go. Gma’s is where the coolest people in the world gather – The Cousins.

By Thursday The Cousins will begin arriving.  We, their parents, are still plenty cool of course but this is not about us, this time. Almost all of the cousins are teenagers and young adults now and they are funny. Not funny peculiar, but straight up hilarious. On Friday they will be wiping out the leftovers and playing games or going to the movies. As with all things cool, it is hard to say what makes them so cool, but I will tell you what I love about them.

They come from different cities, different schools or homeschools, different economic

brackets and they did not grow up together. Only on holidays and occasional visits do they see each other. With all these reasons to be stand-offish and uptight with each other, they all just jump right in where they left off, because where they left off last year was more than likely a fun place. The big kids still play with the little kids. They don’t gripe when the ones who can barely read struggle through a few hands of Apples to Apples (the best game ever by the way). They have been known to ditch the little ones by telling them they are going to the woods where the caribou are. Caribou hunting is a tradition now.Clearly, it is too dangerous for small children.

The Boston cousins taught us the whipped cream toss – whipped cream sprayed into your

hand then launched by smacking said hand with the other hand from underneath in an upward motion. Sorry, I will try to find a picture for this. Trust me it is fun. I think mine ended up on the ceiling. Gotta put some english on it next time. Yep, they don’t mind the old people playing along sometimes. At least they are very good at acting like they don’t and that counts.There have been other epic food tosses, like the bread into the mouth battle that left a minefield of bread for Grandma to find later.

And these kids don’t roll their eyes and complain through picture time either. As you can see, they make the most of taking 112 pictures in what starts to feel like 112 degree heat. In sweaters. They can do this with anything; Legos, Catchphrase, fighting over pie – whatever is going on is fun because they are fun. These kids could make or break the holiday they are given and they choose to make it great.

the very cool boys

This post has no big message, no words of wisdom on how this was accomplished. I’m sure Grandma prays over the whole thing every year. Other than that, I have no idea. I only want to let them know, in the biggest forum available to me, that they are the greatest and I look forward to seeing them every year. I’m sad about the ones who can’t make it this year. I’m so thankful for the chance to see whoever gets to come. Maybe some of that cool will splash on to me. A girl can dream.
