Husband and I were walking to the club one day.  I was talking about my post about him being CEO of our family.  I realized that I made a mistake and had 2 CTOs (Chief Transportation Officer and Chief Technology Officer).  I told my husband and he said, “That’s OK.”

“You say that like it’s not important,” I said.

“It’s OK.  It’s a blog.  It’s not like it will be on the news.”

He helps me not take myself too seriously and always makes me laugh.  I’m laughing now as I type this.  :)

Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang

My husband usually takes me to the subway at 6:45 a.m.  The other morning I was ready and standing near the front door with my coat on, my bag on my arm and my hands folded.  My husband who was not quite ready yet said, “You can sit down.  You don’t have to stand there looking like Nanny McPhee.”  :)

By the way, I happen to love that movie.  Watch it if you get a chance.


#321: Movie Mondays – Bridesmaids April 16, 2012

Bridesmaids (2011 film)

Year: 2011

Genre: Comedy/Romance

Description from http://www.IMDb.com: Competition between the maid of honor and a bridesmaid, over who is the bride’s best friend, threatens to upend the life of an out-of-work pastry chef.

Wife:  This movie is really about the maid of honor and it is more about friendship than marriage. But I’m a sucker for wedding movies so there you have it.  It was very funny. I love Maya Rudolph, she is so naturally funny, earthy and quirky.  The themes of the movie are friendship, believing in yourself, loving yourself, and competition between friends.  Kristen Wiig‘s character is so very likeable.  Melissa McCarthy‘s character is crude but hilarious.  (Warning: there are definitely some unladylike scenesand foul language in this movie).  However, very funny movie.

Husband: I thought it was hilarious at times and contrived at others.  Melissa McCarthy stole the show.  She was the funniest but was not the focus of the movie.  This movie was better than The Hangover.

Husband-Wife Compatibility Rating: 8 (Wife gave it a 10, husband gave it a 6).


#314: Movie Mondays – Midnight in Paris April 9, 2012

Year: 2011

Genre: Comedy/Fantasy/Romance

Description from http://www.IMDb.com: A family travel to the French capital for business. The party includes a young engaged couple who are forced to confront their differing views of a perfect life.

Wife: I loved it.  I had forgotten it was a Woody Allen movie but was reminded by the opening shots.  Allen clearly loves Paris the way he loves New York.  It’s an enchanting story – funny, beautiful, romantic.  Owen Wilson was great.  A magical story about Paris in the 20s.  Kathy Bates is a perfect Gertrude Stein.

Husband: It was creative.  I liked the cameos by historical figures.

Husband-Wife Compatibility Rating: 7 (Wife gave it a 9, Husband a 5.  It was romantic enough for Wife but not funny enough for husband).


#306: Botanical Quiz April 1, 2012

My husband is not a morning person.  Understatement.  I am.  One morning as we were walking to the car to go to work, I started looking around in the yard.

“How many of these little bushes did we get from the nursery?” I said.

“Three,” he said.

“But isn’t that one too?” I said.

“I don’t know,” he said.

“That’s a mum.  I’ll have to cut that back,” I said.

Then I looked at the side yard.

“Look.  Grass is starting to come up.  Or maybe that’s moss.  Do you think that’s moss?” I said.

“I don’t know.  It’s too early for a botanical quiz.” He said.

That husband.  :)

#305: The Walter Show March 31, 2012

Have you seen the Ronald karaoke Geico commercial?  If you haven’t you should.

Anyway, the other morning my husband Walter started singing the Ronald song.  He was cracking me up.  A few minutes later I said, “Sing the Ronald song again.”  He said, ” You’re always asking me to do things.  Sing this song.  Make this sound.  Do this.  Do that.  I’m like, no.  You’re always wanting to watch the Walter show.”

Well, yes!  Of course I am.  When you have a husband as funny as mine, you want to watch he Walter Show all – day –  long.  He’s my favorite show!
