It Doesn't Take Much To Get Us Excited

*While taking out the trash this morning, I found this.

I love him. I know they're dirty, mean, disease filled creatures, but I think he's cute.

We've been watching him all morning. I finally tipped the trash can over when I realized he might be stuck. Still there. Wonder what Blake will think when he returns home from a week of travel and finds me snuggled up next to this guy in our bed?


Might be some divorce papers involved.

*Jack has the most potential for nerdom in our family. And, I mean that with the highest of regards. Take a look at this:


Love that kid.

*While I don't usually get excited for award shows, I'm going to be watching this Sunday. One reason. James Franco.

Holy cuteness. And, he's a super freak, which makes me like him even more.

Also? Wicked smart. He just published Palo Alto, a compilation of short stories. On my list.


Loved him in Milk. Such a brilliant actor. 127 Hours, also good.


*One more thing. We have an even larger TV in our living room now. Moved the one Pa got us to our bedroom. A friend gave us the new one. (Obviously a good friend to have.) It's like a techie revolution over here at the Starnes house!

Off to check on the opossum. Stay tuned.

You are crazy! They freak me out! Keep Batman away because he might kill him!
I want to see 127 hours. I might have to go by myself like I did for Black Swan(which I loved).

Awe, cute opposum. Perhaps he's from over the hedge?? Do you have a hedge? He may be trying to collect enough trash/junk food to pay back a grumpy grizzly??

LOve the video of Jack! I have a few vids of Isaiah I've been meaning to post. Kids are so funny. Maybe I'll do that next week.

Hope you have a great weekend!

I secretly love opossums. And pretty much any animal. I like to pretend they like me too. I'm not gonna lie...the coyotes that come out at night freak my shiz out but I still like them.

How cute is he? Love your videos.

Happy Friday my friend!!

OMG....I would have freaked if I found that in my trash can. Jack is cuteness. Can't wait for the Oscars....have actually considered having an all girls party for the big night. Wouldn't that be fun??!!

Megan (Best of Fates) said...

So adorable - but that's only because you didn't show the teeth, which freak me out SO much!

That is one ugly little critter. We had them all over where I grew up in TN. I hit one with my car once. It was an accident, I swear. The car went airborne. It was terrifying. Now I think all opossums are out to get me.

Jack has no nerd potential. He's Frank the Tank. All the way.

PS. You should eat that possum btw. Prove your Louisiana roots. Aaay-eee.

Jodee said...

Holy cow! I can't believe you were taking pictures! I would have been running fast! We just had a little mouse in our trash and I couldn't even get him out. Had to call the hubs in!

Love the video!

Claire Kiefer said...

CASEY!!!!!!!!!!!
I cannot believe you went to get a camera and he was still there.
He's a liiiittle bit cute, but he's also BIG! I would have been a little scared of him, I must admit. Plus, I'm not sure I've ever seen one alive. They're always (unfortunately) dead in the road!

Brittny said...

You are a crazy woman for wanting to keep and/or cuddle with that nasty animal!!! I will definitely side with the man on this one. I'm sorry.

And I love Jack's knowledge of dinos. Our best friends' little boy loves them too and it cracks us up when he starts naming them.

So excited about your new tv stuff! That's fun! And glad you will be able to watch the Oscars. I haven't seen them in a couple years because the kids interrupt so much and now we don't have cable. Sucks at times like this. But then I remember how much money we are saving and I feel better.

Now go get rid of that animal!

FROGGITY! said...

i said it before, i will say it again... ewww! they creep me out.

jack is A DOLL! smartie pants. :)

If Blake leaves you when he finds that hedgehog in bed with you... I totally can help with the divorce papers :)

Leaving Carl's place soon... which means I will miss the oscars. And Mr. Franco. Sadface. And yes- he was amazing in Milk. Amazing.

The Opossum is a cutie. My parents have one that frequents their backyard and now a Racoon too. Love the video, what a smart cookie!

The Lenzers said...

If M came home and found me cuddled up next to said rodent, he would just be grateful he did not have to snuggle! LOVE JACK!

Becca Jane said...

HAHAHA, so James Franco is totally on my "Top 5 List"...you know, the celebrity I'm allowed to cheat with, haha! Have you seen him in Annapolis? Yummy.
