Randomness Part 124

When I was pregnant with The Goon Squad my Dad thought it would be awesome if I could have the kids on either side of midnight so that my twins had different birthdays. This lady had her twins in different years! My Dad is going to be so jealous. (Thanks Karen)

You can buy The Big Bopper’s casket if you want to.

I’m watching the first season of The West Wing again. I forgot how good it really was. That being said, I am still glad they got rid of Mandy.


So what did you guys do for New Years Eve?

  1. I totally agree about Mandy. Square peg, round hole. She was awful.

    I’m watching “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.” It is so good. It made me cry it was so good.

  2. I have a friend whose twins were born on different days. It was cool. Not to call you out as an underachiever or anything, but…

  3. I love The West Wing so much, I’ve been re-watching over the past few months, I’m up to season 6. Almost time to start from the beginning again!

  4. I forced my friend to take me on her New Year’s celebration. She’s kewl. We met on the internet.

  5. A woman in my twin club likes to regale the pregnant woman with the story of her twins who were born on different days. And not just on either side of midnight… 7 hours apart! She actually re-labored for baby B. I still can’t believe the doctors let her…

  6. We went to see the Pistons beat up on the Nets.

    And I knew someone whose twins were conceived on different dates. The doctor that delivered them said they were noticeably (like two weeks) different in gestational age. Apparently she conceived and then ovulated again or something strange.

    Or, she could have just been feeding me a line.

  7. I’m a West Wing-aholic. Mandy was such a whiner. If they ever explained what happened to her I never caught it.

  8. I had my gallbladder out on December 30th so on New Years Eve I was in bed doped up on pain killers. On New Years Day I had an enema forced upon me by an evil ER doc. I’m looking for 2009 to get better from here on out.

  9. That picture reminded me of how large a role Mandy had that first season. Ugh. What were they thinking? Watching reruns of the show on Bravo got me through the early days of breastfeeding with my oldest.

  10. Not much. But we went sledding on New Year’s Day. It was a blast.

  11. We just finished Season 1 and 2 of WW, Season 3 it starts to go downhill. It’s amazing how reality followed in the footsteps of TV. As we watched it became abundantly clear that Obama’s speechwriters grew up watching the West Wing.

    Happy New Year!

  12. Ah! I loved Mandy, but I think that was mostly because of the movie she was in, The Cutting Edge. What really irked me was when they got rid of Sam. Anyway, for New Year’s, we did nothing! Yea for new baby and need for sleep when available.

  13. I caught that story yesterday and have to say, it is beyond cool!

  14. I spent New Year’s Eve getting puked on by one of my twins. I recommend the experience highly.

  15. As a mother of twins, if your kids were born on different days, would you still celebrate on one day for both birthdays? I am not sure how I would do it…

    We spent New Year’s Eve playing Wii and had more fun than the kids!

  16. New Year’s was big time for us this year: Dad had to work at the firestation, and I took the kids for ice cream and put them to bed before midnight. I told them it was already 2009 in NY so they could relax – we live on the west coast!

  17. I agree with your dad, that would have been cool. I actually wanted to be like the lady with twins born in different years. That was before I had kids and you had twins.

  18. Our older son made the pizza recipe in the Top Chef cookbook and then we had chocolate fondue as we watched Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve.

    My mom was here too so it was a low key, kick back on the sofa and discuss how when Dick Clark dies they could just embalm him and roll him out once a year for New Years. Maybe people wouldn’t notice he was even dead. He’d just like he was really cold in Times Square. We also discussed how much better he sounded this year and seems to be have made a lot of progress since his stroke. But that talk bored the kids since they never worked with stroke patients like their mom once did. Kids these days, no appreciation for stroke recovery. Yeesh.

    They were far more interested in my husband referring to Dick Clark as a Clarksicle.

  19. I’ve started re-watching “The West Wing” and I forgot how fantastic it is as well. My crush for Josh grows a little with each re-watched episode.
