Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

"Listen to Jesus, Jimmy... trust the man with the stigmata!"

So, when one has some downtime between medicating children, one should relax, right? I mean, it's only fair that when the children are in a drug-induced stupor, the momma gets to indulge in some much needed R & R, right? You know, eat, doze in front of the TV, go for a jog. Duh. So my choice to watch the movie musical Reefer Madness was probably not the most relaxing option-- obviously a nice nap would have been the better, wiser choice at this point-- but I've been meaning to see it forever, and TGIM rented it for me and e'rything, so what can you do? And guys? I laughed my butt off. Laughed it right off! Not literally, of course... although that would be coolness. I mean it. And now I can't get "Listen to Jesus, Jimmy!" out of my head, which HA!

And I only have myself to blame.

But goodness, Kristen Bell is the cutest, most over the top Mary Sunshine I have ever seen and I'm not just saying that because she also plays my kickass teen heroine Veronica Mars on my most favoritest TV show evah. No, the story is about two clean-cut, innocent teens (Mary Lane and Jimmy Harper) who fall under the menacing influence of Public Enemy Number One-- Mary Jane, marijuana, reefer, the "stuff"-- and quickly find themselves in a twisted, downward spiral into a world of sex, madness, and evil jazz music. It is so hilariously tongue-in-cheek, y'all-- and good golly is it ever over-the-top gruesome and nutty-- that I didn't get any rest at ALL. When Jesus (played by the awesome Robert Torti, who was also Pharoah in Donny Osmond's version of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) comes down from heaven and, in a musical revue hosted by none other than Joan of Arc, tries to convince Jimmy to quit toking up, I almost peed my pants I was laughing so hard. Not very restful, I tell you what, GOSH. They should put a warning on the cover or something.

So basically, I didn't get a nap, I'm probably going to burn in hell, I can't stop singing "Loved by Mary Lane!", and I am suddenly super hungry. Honestly. What's that all about?
