Would You Like to Swing on a Star... (oh oh oh!)


Sometimes I wish I was that chick from that one show back in the eighties - "Out of This World."  You know, the girl that could stop time just by pressing her two fingers together.

Wouldn't that be awesome?  (Don't tell anyone, but sometimes I actually try it.  Just in case.)

BUT, unfortunately, I'm not a half-alien hybrid teenager with my own syndicated sitcom, so I can't just stop time whenever I want to.  But if I could...here are the things that I would do:

1.  Take a loooooooooooooong glorious nap.  This would definitely be #1 on my priority list.

2.  Read the Game of Thrones series.  I watched the last season on DVD and got hooked.  Unfortunately, we don't have HBO so I can't watch the new season and now I am in serious withdrawal.

3.  Hmmm.  Maybe it would make more sense to subscribe to HBO before stopping time.  Then I could watch HBO on demand like a mad woman while time was stopped.  UNLESS, would the tv be stopped in time too?  These are the things I think about at night.

4.  Enjoy the silence.  My kids talk all.the.time.  No, seriously.  Like ALL.THE.TIME.  A day with no one talking to me sounds like the most perfect day ever right about now.  Maybe I can ask for that for Mother's Day? 

5.  Take another nap.  Seriously, time is stopped.  It's my prerogative. 

6.  Catch up on my photo albums.  I take pics all the time (clearly evidenced here on my blog), but haven't put a picture in a photo album since my baby shower for Ashley.  That is almost 7 years of pictures, people!!!  If Shutterfly ever goes bankrupt I am sooooo screwed.

7.   I should probably clean the house.  And then keep time stopped for at least a week after that so it actually stays clean.

8.  I would say catch up on work, but it seems like the more on top of things I am the more work I am given.  I am beginning to wonder if slacking might be a better life-choice.

9.  Play lots of Bejeweled Blitz and rack up millions of coins. 

10.  Nap some more.

So what would you do if you had an alien cube for a father and were given the magical ability to stop time?


P.S.  Maybe next week I'll talk about all the things I would do if I had a robot for a little sister.  (FYI - my psyche has been permanently affected by bad eighties sitcoms.)

YOu are awesome. And I'm also mad at you. I'm only mad because your title made me start singing the stupid song and now I can't get it out of my head.

Vicki the Robot. I can't stop laughing. I loved that show.

If you touch the TV, it will "unfreeze" as anyone Evie touched would "unfreeze" so problem solved. :)

Nap. Definitely nap. Forget the house and work. I want my sleep.
