When the Kid and Adult Worlds Collide September 23 2011

I'm a huge fan of nearly all the HBO series, and a few on Showtime (Dexter premiere Oct. 2!!!!), but the shows are a Sunday night thing for me and the husband, usually. So earlier this week while we were having breakfast mid-week we caught what sounded like the honky tonk True Blood theme song  on tv and when I turned I was like whaaaa? Sesame Street parody -- True Mud....

Plaza Sesamo and Abelardo the Big Green Bird August 09 2011

  I'll admit it, I let the television babysit my child at times, especially in the morning before I've drowned myself in coffee. If I can help it, I put it on cartoons or children's programming in Spanish, because I figure that balances out my lax (lazy) parenting, right? I never really paid attention to Plaza Sesamo -- which airs on V-Me  -- until around a year ago. I grew up with...

Don't Cringe: Snooki Is One of Us January 27 2011

By now you've probably already heard the _____ news that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is one of us. Don't be afraid. It's true, we share the same ethnicity. See here as she explains: That's sooooo post-modern. I love it and am totally going to steal it. If we're gonna really make this post-racial America a reality, forget the prez because Snooki might be leading the charge there. I'm totally teaching the...

The Ridiculousness of Telenovelas January 24 2011

My mother is a telenovela-watcher, and every weeknight line-up begins with what we call "El de la que era gorda y ahora es flaca," which translates to Llena de Amor. During the day she also keeps the television on in the background, and apparently the toddler K likes the little "teeny-bopper" (as my mom calls them) telenovelas that air at that time and dances to their music. Oh lordy, so...

How Apple TV Saved the Miserable Month of January January 18 2011

So it's mid-January already, thank Gawd. I am not a fan of January. I literally just brace myself, grit my teeth and push through it. I don't even want to focus on keeping New Year's resolutions -- I just want to close my eyes, plug my ears and lalalalalala my way through it. It's especially crappy now that we live in a place where there's a real winter and there...

'Babies' Documentary Makes Me Worry Less About What Baby K Puts In Her Mouth August 31 2010

We saw the documentary 'Babies' this weekend, and if you haven't seen it or heard about it the trailer should be enough to suck you in. Prepare to be intoxicated by the overwhelming cuteness. The film follows four babies -- Ponjia from Namibia, Hattie from San Francisco, Mari from Tokyo and Bayarjargal from Mongolia -- from the time when they are helpless little blobs fresh from the oven until they...
