Homework and Paris

Tonight we were playing Apples to Apples**. On Celia's turn with the word FABULOUS Celia had among her four choices PARIS and HOMEWORK She had an extremely difficult time choosing between the two. Of course Dad had put down PARIS and Mom had had put down HOMEWORK. How well we know our daughter!!

**Apples to Apples is a card game where a word is played like FABULOUS and all of the other players put down a card from their hand that best typifies this word...thus PARIS and HOMEWORK.

Mary's Obsession

Celia absolutely adores Star Academy and Nouvelle Star. These are the French style of an American Idol...only much more polite and...French. They love to sing in English and not always successfully. Mary has taken to watching the shows with Celia in order to partake in a little of that Mother-Daughter bonding. Well best laid plans turned into a textbook obsession for Mary. She fell in love with Julien Dore...People magazine is calling him "the French Sanjaya" Oh puleeeze...something definitely got lost in the translation! His "Lolita" was a show stopper!! Celia absolutely hated him and vowed to throw things at the TV when he sang. Oh there is truly nothing like a little Mother-Daughter bonding!!
