Episode: 321- Santa Claus Conquers The Martians

Joel: I think it's kind of hot to be wearing these scarves in here.
Tom: Oh, yeah.
Crow: Well, scarves are a must. You can't go caroling without a scarf. Catch your death!
Joel: Man, you were like one of those kids I remember in high school that used to sell the most candybars for the marching band.
Tom: Yeah, and you'd be president of the Swing Choir, too.
Crow: Ha ha! Ah, thanks, Joel Robinson. Thanks, Tom Servo.
Tom: What a kiss-up, this guy.
Crow: Okay, now if you'll all look at your sheet music, uh, we can rehearse my new song.
Joel: You wrote a Christmas song?
Crow: Hey, there's no tradition like a new tradition! Ha ha ha!
Tom (reads sheet music): Um, wait a minute. "Let's Have a Patrick Swayze Christmas?"
Crow: Oh, yeah, yeah. Based on my favorite movie, “Roadhouse.”
Tom: C'mon, what the heck does PATRICK SWAYZE have to do with CHRISTMAS?
Crow: Hey you keep Christmas in your way, and let me keep it in mine, ok?
Tom: Oh, jeeessz!
Joel: Hey, cmon, Tom Servo, it seems like a nice enough sentiment and we can give it a shot. C'mon.
Crow: All right. Okay. Okay. Uh, 12/8 time, uh, key of A-flat major!
Tom: Oh, good!
Crow: Uh, cambot, shoot 'em the tune. Uh, okay, you'll just have to stay with me, everybody, okay? Your part's written out. Let's have a Patrick Swayze Christmas, by Crow T. Robot.
Joel (reading music sheet, as Letterman): "Paul, let's have a Patrick Swayze Christmas"?
Crow: Right. Hit it, Cambot!
Tom: Oh! Oh, I start. I get it. Hmm.
Crow: I'm sorry.
Tom: Pick it up. (singing)
Open up your heart and let the Patrick Swayze Christmas in.
Crow: We'll gather at the Roadhouse with our next of kin.
Joel: And Santa can be our regular Saturday night thing.
Bots: We'll decorate a barstool and gather round and sing.
Tom: Oh, let's have a Patrick Swayze Christmas this year!
Crow: Or we'll tear your throat out and kick you in the ear!
Joel (interrupting): Hold it, hold it a sec. Cambot, stop the music. Uh, Crow, I don't know if I think this is an appropriate sentiment anymore for Christmas.
Crow: Hey, what? Like a good action sequence don't belong in Christmas?
Joel: Well, no, it's just that I've never heard of an action sequence in a Christmas carol before.
Tom: Yeah!
Crow: Well, then grab hold o' your socks, Joel Robinson, and read on!
Tom: Okay, pick it up from measure 20, Cambot. (music)...Lovely intro, though. Very tasteful.
Crow: Thank you.
Tom: I like that. (singing)
It's my way or the highway, this Christmas at my ba-ha-haar.
Crow: I'll have to smash your kneecaps if you bastards touch my car!
Joel: I got the word that Santa has been stealing from the till.
Bots: I think that that right jolly old elf had better make out his will ohh!
All: Oh, let's have a Patrick Swayze Christmas, one and all.
And this can be the haziest...this can be the laziest...
This can be the Swayziest Christmas of them AAALLLLLLLLLL!"
Tom: La la la laa ha HAAA!
Crow: How long before it becomes a standard?
Joel: I think you gotta come with me. C'mon. (Grabs Crow and exits.)
Crow: Waaaaah!
Tom: We'll be right back. Save a leg for me! Heh heh heh!

Well we dont know if the girls have whooping cough, but they have antibiotics just in case....Mya has a pretty bad ear infection which is why she's been a cranky baby for the past week....

Last night watched Santa Claus vs. the Martians and sang "Lets all have a Patrick Swayze Christmas." JOY.

I'm off to the doctor with the's hoping they don't have the whooping cough (cough cough)...
Mail me!
So I don't think the girls have Whooping Cough, but Malinda has been coughing more than last week so I'm calling the dr. to see if they need to get checked out. (bah)

Last night was MW night but Dale was running the event and didnt play so I went home with the baby.

She fell asleep in the car and was down for the night leaving me to:

1: Watch Gilmore girls and finish a baby bib for the next kid, 2: Finish Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell 3: Clean the house with Dale for 30 min (garbage, Kitty litter, dishes, strapping down babyhighchairs, laundry) and 4: fall asleep around 10:30 or so.

Tonight is Movie night, we have "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "Super Size Me," and a CLASSIC "MST 3k="Santa Claus vs. the Martians" with the BEST christmas song ever (that makes me miss Dan and Dylan) "Oh Lets all have a Patrick Swayze Christmas" and it also features the rare and much coveted, "Roadhouse" boardgame-tally-ho!

The girls are sick. They have the runs, and runny noses, and coughs and are very very crabby. Mya doesn,t want to eat. It was a really fun day yesterday with them. :(

We had a nice saturday, 2 MW marquees, shopping at Target, and cleaning the crib etc...Slept late, finished my cross stitch project, started on a bib for the baby...bought 20.00 worth of floss for my next project (arg!)...

Took the girls to the park on Sunday-they had fun till about 9000 kids showed up, so then we left. They were cranky so they were fighting and biting each other so I took Malinda to marchfest up at west....that was fun.,

Reason 99,999 why I am nervous about the idea of Free Healthcare for everyone in the US:

"Oh Hi Jane, you look great after your lung biopsy and its really a bummer you have cancer, are you going to come outside and smoke a cigarette with me after lunch?" "Thank you Sally, my lung biopsy and chemo is going really well, I would love to come smoke a cancer stick with you, thanks!"

And I'm gonna be expected to pay for shit like this?

(im still voting for John Kerry BTW)

So we are having a completely awkward lunch today at work. A few months ago we hired this person to help with some admin. stuff around here. Like 3 weeks after she started she had this freak accident and was gone from work....long story short, the accident was a good thing since she had a cat scan that showed her breast cancer was back and she needed treatment, so essentially shes been gone for from work since then.

Now she is quitting because (obviously) she needs medical treatment, but we are having a pizza lunch to celebrate (?) her leaving because I have cancer (again). What the hell? It's supposed to be a nice thing, but honestly I can't think of anything more depressing....I'm just going to grab some pizza and go on an "errand" so I dont have to stay....

Yesterday I got my new 1000 page book (aka something to keep me busy for a week) Johnathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. Its pretty good so far, a lot of footnotes! Went to bed very early and missed ER season premiere, crud...the kids are with my mom today so hopefully they have fun being outside all day with her!

We are baby free tomorrow so we have the Marquee in the AM, I need to get the baby stuff all Murphy's Oil Soaped and clean....and take the ceiling fan down.

I fell at daycare yesterday and really screwed up my knee, its swelled and all purple. My feet are also swelling so I'm walking around work in Isotoners. Watched "mean girls" last night, it was pretty funny.

Bought a triple stroller from a lady in my Twins Club....its really nice and it fits in the car!

I ate lunch with Muench and Damon yesterday, Muench has a pretty swell black eye (no body talks about fight club...) tonight the girls are staying with grandma :)

Dale has a he's been is picture day, Malinda is very cute in her red kilt, I'm sure Mya will be cute in her pink one! Grandma was going to feed and dress her for her picture and then take her home!

Tonight we only have Mya, I'm planning on watching "mean girls" and That 70's show while I pound away at my project bah!

Watched the football last night, Dale lost I won (I beat up on my brother pretty bad)....Am THIS close to finishing my huge fairy/angel cross stitch---I have a bit at the bottom to finish/and a few things to clean up; Hopefully I can get this done by the end of the month!

Tomorrow is picture day at daycare, the girls have cute kilts from old navy to wear. Grandma is taking Mya in to get that done with Malinda.

I plan on watching "Igby Goes Down" tonight after I watch the season premier of Gilmore Girls (yippie hooray!) and put the kids to bed (by myself, horrors). trying to work in a lunch date with Muench this week and we have all day saturday babyfree :)

My parents sold A LOT of stuff at the rummage sale on Friday and Saturday! I think they made around 500.00 which isnt half bad. They took all the stuff they dont want to save to sell in Spring to St. Williams and we bought a new crib, changing table, and rocking chair for $105.00-all I need to do is buy a new crib mattress and clean up the wood a bit. The girls had fun being outside for 2 days and selling stuff....Malinda would give everyone that paid by mom a hug..she also made $1.00 from this old lady for being cute (which isnt really a habit I want her to get into, getting money for being pretty).

On Saturday the Twins had their twin study in madison, we went out to the Olive Garden for lunch-the night before my parents took the girls to Perkins (BAD IDEA).

Perkins kids menu sucked, their grilled cheeze was 100% grease, the beans we got for them had BACON?! on top and were greasy and the mashed potatoes were swimming in butter and gravy-yech! Dennys is much better.

Yesterday was watching football day...the girls were cranky, I've been cranky, Dale is cranky, the stupid Packers lost-bah! Good news is I am almost done with my huge cross stitch project!

So as of right now my mom and dad are opening up the rummage sale at our house...just think next week I can actually park in my garage! I'm wondering how my mom is going to watch the kids and do a rummage sale all at the same time, but I'm sure she will handle it!

Its been pretty nice out at nights so we've been playing with the kids outside before we put them down to bed, last night they decided to crack each other up for an hour when we put them down....Malinda was pacing back and forth in her crib and Mya was making her laugh by making funny noises. Sadly they were still sleeping when I left this AM so we didnt get to see each other.

Watched Scooby Doo 2 last night, outside of Linda Cardellini in a neoprene orange jumpsuit, the movie was a stinker...(not nearly as excellent as Kill Bill V.2, a movie I will be buying once it comes out as a 2 disc special ed.

I have no idea what movies are up next from netflix, I think maybe Jersey Girl and maybe Mean Girls?

Tomorrow we are off to Madison in the AM for the Twins testing and lunch with Robin....maybe we will run into Breezy?

So next week Gilmore Girls is back for its next season....thats excellent!

Watched "Insomnia" last night, a totally depressing movie...the thing is I was in Alaska during the 24 hour light and it didnt bother me at all....Al Pacino was just loopy to begin with...

The girls had on their packer outfits yesterday (and Malinda bit someone again) and malinda kept pointing to her chest and her packer logo...maybe she knew they won?

THANKS to Shannon for all of her son's old clothes-wow, we now have a lot of clothes!

Mya is walking now but she turns one of her feet inward and walks sideways-y-hopefully its only a phase, her dad had casts on his legs when he was born because his legs turned inward pretty bad...

We are gearing up for the big rummage sale this Friday and Saturday. We also have our twins session in Madison on Saturday, plus marching band on Saturday---a very busy weekend! I also won my Fantasy Game, the Flaming Donkey's are 1-0!

They fired someone at work today. I'm thinking the girl they fired may sue since she was the only person of color we had working here---its always about race or sex when you get canned....Of course it could be the fact that since I was hired shes been out sick or coming in late or on vacation more than she's been in the office, but hey, who knows!? Still sad, she was a really nice person and very friendly.

Sadder news is we aren't doing D&D anymore since Dustin had to drop out (new baby on the way and he doesnt see much of his other daughter as it is) we will miss him, he rocks!

Busy night tonight, I have my twins meeting, Dale is going to see his HS friend Ryan's band play in Milwaukee late tonight---Plus I'm feeling lousy, I have heartburn or acidy something....I didnt get this with the twins, I also didnt puke at all with the twins...maybe its because its a boy....Thanks to Dawn at work for letting me steal her Tums!

And in other news...I had lunch today with my friend Erin (she is in my twins group) at the soup house, had some yummy chilli and a sprecher RB-YUM! We will also see each other tomorrow for the twins meeting which I have been looking forward to!

Its very nice outside today....I hope grandma brought out Malinda for some fresh air fun! Looking forward to Saturday and seeing Shannon and Gage and reaping the benefits of Gage's old clothes (thanks gage!)
Mail me!

and in Mya news...we discovered last night she knows what banannas are. We have this book that we got with colors in it and she was able to point to the banannas when we asked her "where are the banannas?" we tested to make sure it wasnt a fluke by going to a different page with banannas in a different place and asking "where are the banannas Mya?" and she pointed to them again! shes very smart...malinda can also find her stuffed dogs if you ask her to "find her doggies and show them to daddy" which prompts her to find these stuffed dogs, chew on them and shove their drool encrusted faces into your face. precious.
Mail me!
So my car was broken into last night, Dale forgot to lock it in the driveway. The guy made off with an altoids tin of change...if there was 2 bucks in there I would have been surprized! He did not take my Pixies concert ticket, my endorsed bonus check for $250.00 or my Cd's/Stereo- He did however smoke and ash in my car so the car now reaks of smoke...I had to buy air spray this AM-yech!

Malinda bit another kid at daycare again...I think this is the 3rd time, she really has to stop that!

Watched Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen this weekend, gotta love that Lindsey Lohan.

We took the kids to the Betty Brinn's Children's Museum this weekend and they liked it so much we bought a 1yr. membership! It was great fun!

We also drafted our Fantasy League this brother and Dale and I had fun doing that.

Also hit the Home Despot and bought two ceiling fans and hit the walmart for general baby crap/food.

Yesterday night we watched Orange County-kind of a disappointing movie.... We took minda for a bike ride on her little bike, she had fun with that. Today we are having Dustin come over for a little late night gaming! whoo hoo! I also went to Old Navy and TJ Maxx yesterday and gobbled up some cheep baby clothes for the new baby....I also got some stuff off of ebay and should be getting some nice things from Julie and we just need a single stroller and a new crib---maybe another high chair although we dont even use ours now, its so big!
