Devil Wears Prada is Great

I was so excited to go see the movie today I could hardly contain myself to take Amanda and her buddy to the first show. Both Meryl Streep and Hathaway are wonderful-some of the clothes are to die for, they go to Paris, the place I love...and there's one scene where I gasped, and I'm curious to hear from others if they reacted the same way too, (but not for the obvious reason.) Let me know!

My Heroine is going to St. John's!

I've been less media whorish lately, writing about family instead, because at the end of the day, that's what it's all about. Amanda's other basketball team, The Heroes League, has made the playoffs and is going to play a tournament at St. John's! I'm so happy and proud for her! And one of her teammates Nora, a fun, Amazon girl (she's Amanda's age and about 5'10") from Kew Gardens, is coming to our school next year, I can't wait for CYO! I have to get their pic up here soon.

My summer movie to-see list

The Science of Sleep
Paris, je t'aime
The Devil Wears Prada
Nacho Libre
The Lake House
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Two words...maybe a couple more

"Savage Animal" !

Supergroup is hilarious. I don't know whether Sebastian Bach is hamming it up for the show or whether he's just a complete screwball, but it makes for fun tv. Watching him watch himself on Gilmore Girls and shushing others and then laughing insanely by himself is amusing. Or I might just be sleep deprived.

We won!

Amanda's AAU basketball team, the Notre Dames, beat the New Jersey Panthers 24-10 this weekend in New Jersey at Fairleigh Dickinson University. Here's a couple of pics of the guys, the sweetest bunch of kids around. We spent the night at a hotel in Jersey and got to bond by the pool, while Ian fired up a great bbq for the parents.
