Designed to Sell

AEJ and I are flying back to southern Florida tomorrow morning. My mom had to move up to Columbus unexpectedly last week, and she left her house without having time to get it ready to sell. So, AEJ and I are heading there tomorrow and spending 48 hours doing our best cleaning, painting, packing, and furniture placement so that we can get the house on the market on Thursday. It’s a good thing we watch a lot of HGTV.

We’ll be home late Thursday night. Come Friday, I have to really get cracking on the Sax Concerto. I will have lost three weeks of work time by then. September 1 will be here pretty quickly, I fear…

“Knocked Up” was fine. Not nearly as good or funny as “40 Year Old Virgin,” but entertaining. The overall premise was pretty lame — that a couple with absolutely nothing in common except a shared night of drunken sex would end up happily together simply because of a baby. Would that ever work? I’ve heard of marriages staying together “for the children,” and that always strikes me as unhealthy for everybody, but a committed relationship that starts because of an accidental pregnancy? I can’t wait for the sequel. Not sure what it’ll be called… “I Resent Junior,” maybe, or, “I Knocked Up the Nanny, Too.”

I'd like to see "I Knocked Up the Nanny, Too". The poster could be Seth Rogen with shrugged shoulders and a look that says "Oh well, what're you gonna do? I likes me the vaginers!"

I have yet to see the movie, but my mom and I discussed the premise of the movie and she had the same reservations about the plot that you did. I'm not one way or the other about it, maybe because I'm (somewhat) young and idealistic, and also because I hate kids and will do just about anything to make sure I don't have any.

I saw "Knocked Up" last Friday, and I have to say, I was very pleasantly surprised by it. It sounds to me like you're thinking too much about it. Thinking is the enemy of a movie like "Knocked Up". Just go with it, and enjoy it for what it is, and you'll have a much better time. And isn't Katherine Heigl adorable?

There's no way a non-tried-and-true relationship would survive what we've been through the last 10 days. That's my $.02!

God--this just occurred to me. I hate it when I think of the perfect thing to say after the fact. Anyway, "I Knocked Up the Nanny, Too" should star Jude Law.

That would've been funnier if I'd posted it sooner. I suck.
