Adventures in Real Parenting: About That Little Jack Russell Terrier


Seems like for one reason or another I've been hanging out with The Actor a lot lately. MathMan and I have imposed some new television rules and that might be part of the reason. That might also explain why the sibling squabbling has reached a crescendo. I'm hoping that that whole mess has peaked because we can't keep cleaning up broken crockery and I'm in no mood to pay lawyers more than I'm already paying them right now.

So anyway, The Actor, who is working toward a new blog name - Nathan Taylorsville - for reasons that will become apparent shortly, and I have been chillaxing, drinking root beer and practicing obnoxiously loud burping, stuffing our faces with Fritos and generally guffawing at Nitro Circus and reruns of Jackass.

The other day, we watched the following segment over and over, thanks to the wonders of DVR. Then we repeated the lines until no one wanted to be around us. Finally, we looked it up on YouTube so I could put it up on the blog. So here it is. I hope you like it.

We're headed outside now where we plan to light our pants on fire and beat the living shit out of each other with hockey sticks.

See you when we're back from the emergency room....



Because sometimes, the 12 year old boy trapped inside me has to be let out, that's why!

  1. The Actor is very lucky to have a mum that appreciates the actions of 12 year old boys.

    Your a gem Lisa. :)

  2. I cannot get it to load. Does that mean you are at the ER?

  4. As a Canadian, and hockey stick beater of log standing, I have to warn you to be sure to have a puck lying around so you can tell the cops it was all part of a game and not attempted spawnacide.

  5. My mother would have never dared have the courage for high-contact sports as you do. You have my admiration.

  6. Well it's obvious the Actor should stay with you when you and Mathman get the two house solution you spoke of. That means Garbo will become a math whizz.

    I hope you're good with a hockey stick. I admire your ability to watch Jackass. So far I haven't had the stomach for it. Fritos might help. I'll put Fritos on the shopping list.

    Just yesterday my dear husband and I were trying to explain to my family just how our inner 14 year old boys with their senses of humor mesh.

    My family does not understand.

    This does explain yet another reason for our own friendship.

  10. Oh my! I didn't think I had a 12 yr. old boy trapped inside me, and now I've confirmed that. Better that I wait and let you post only the finest jackassery for me to watch.

    And BTW, your new profile pic looks MAHHvelous!

  11. HAHAHAHAHAHA - to light your pants on fire and beat each other with hockey sticks. I love this little tale, I do. I want a girl so badly, and yet, this hanging out with The Boy really sounds like fun.

    Although I would like to mention it does seem unfair that MathMan has restricted your television. You did remind him that you're an equal partner, right?

  12. Somehow I have this feeling that if I met you, we would get along splendidly. :)

    I love watching Jackass with Iwanski, and I have a great fondness for old Beavis & Butthead episodes. Oh, yes, I have a 12-year-old boy trapped inside me, too. :)

  13. The 12 year old boy in me is laughing tonight because my bbf fed my dogs Pinto Beans this morning with their breakfast and oh my...never, ever feed a dog beans. The wee little one is letting em rip louder and longer than I ever could. But I still laugh at it...there is something to be said for the humor of a 12 year old.

  14. Can't imagine how we lived without the dvr. Seriously. Remember commercials?

  15. Ah, mother and son bonding. He'll remember this night forever.

  16. LOL and I never say that. Finally, I have the answer to why Jer and I get along so well after all this time. We have the 12 year old boy syndrome as well as the 12 year old girl one. It's a match made in Mianus.

  17. Holy shit, I was unaware that Mel Gibson owned property in Mianus!

    ...Also, Nitro Circus has to be the best show on television right now. It's somewhat redeemed Mtv... until the next season of G's to Gents comes out. Ugh.
