Lindy’s Blog: Where Mom is Always Right

totally arbitrary observations…

…just for the fun of it.  Brought to you by the devious minds of myself and my DH.

1) Closed captioning is fantastic.  Never miss an important phrase in a movie again.  Finally, thanks to CC, I know the words to ABBA’s Dancing Queen.  “You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life, oooh, see that girl, watch that scene, dig in the dancing queen.”  I rented the movie version of Mamma Mia! while the kids were asleep and David was away.  Don’t repeat my mistake, but gleaning the actual lyrics was somewhat worth it.  Although David did come home to catch the end of the movie, and lost his permanent respect for Pierce Brosnan, who starred as one of Sophie’s fathers.  He:  “You were BOND, man!  How could you have sunk so low?”

2) Women dress for other women.  And women try to impress other women visitors by lighting as many candles as they possibly can.  (That is David’s observation, and I suppose he’s right in a sense.)

3) Women begin to regress fashionably as they age.  Little girls wear Tinkerbell and ponies on their shirts.  Women in the over 65-set opt for Precious Moments and cardinals.  Think about it.



  1. It’s Tweety Bird all the way for me.

  2. Isn’t CC usually ASL? I didn’t realize that you knew that, although I had heard that Linus signs. Or, did you mean subtitles?

  3. No, I don’t know ASL, and Linus knew baby signs as a baby. Okay, perhaps I mean subtitles, but it says “CC” on the remote, and that’s the button to push if you want the words to appear.

    Either way, it’s a marvelous thing.
