Notes From Two Mediums and a Specter

Before I could stop him, El Guille threw his ambulance into the tub to play with during a bath. So now, the ambulance is possessed. It will periodically start flashing and making WAP WAP ambulance noises.

In the middle of the night WAP WAP.

As I'm cutting out fabric, WAP WAP HONK HONK.

My nerves do not need this.


I'm a child of the 80s, possessed toys are scary.


During the Jonas Brother's performance on the American Idol Finale:

Other Half: Is this a boy band or something?


OH: A pre-op band?

A: I believe they have a Disney channel show

OH: Who doesn't?

A: You.

OH: Who doesn't have one that WANTS one?


Heard on the radio: "The Iraqi athletes on their way to Beijing may not be able to participate in the Olympics."

Are they literally on their way?

Like, they're on a slow boat to China?

Kalli Ko said...

oh CW, Furbys.... send chills down my spine!!!!

i've always wanted my own Disney channel show, sadly that dream has yet to come true for me.

more caffeine, please said...

We have the same possessed toy problem only it's a farm truck that moos only the moos sound like creepy moans. But I'd rather listen to that than watch anything Jonas Bros. Now that is something my nerves can't take.

I thought you meant Phil Spector.

Completely threw me.

And I would TOTALLY watch a pre-op band.

Azúcar said...

Sorry about that, I corrected it so that no one else is disappointed.

I don't think I have a thing to say about Phil Spector.

Well, other than he's a complete and total whackjob--no, a despicable whackjob.

Hey, I'm on Team Ronnie for this one!

KK-Maybe Other Half knows someone we don't know? I'll ask if he can make it happen. You wouldn't be the first preggo children's TV star!

Been reading your blog for a while now and have to say very entertaining and well written. I always seem to laugh or snicker (in a good way) at your words.

I vote for you to be the writer and producer of "I want my own disney show" show. Millions I tell ya...millions...

Azúcar said...

Thanks for stopping by, Erica! And you are right--the strip club DJ was weird.

Anne-Marie said...

I totally fast forwarded my tivo through the Jonas Brothers part. I must be getting really old or just completely uninterested in Disney produced gems.

April said...

I just played my Nintendo DS through the Jonas Brothers. And all the group numbers. And most of the rest of the show.

Chief Momma said...

Yep, it worked. Your voice blogging feature that is.

TJ said...

My cats always trip one toy or another. Nothing like a siren in the middle of the night, or a dump truck shouting "I'm running rock today!" Then there were those that went off for no reason, growing up in the 80's with the possessed toys like you, I disconnected the battery on the thing.

acte gratuit said...

Okay, so I just had an update from you via Google Reader and it gives me this "joot" thing. And I hear a voice...your voice? but I don't see it here. And I'm confused and I want to know what this is and how it works...?!

And furthermore, I added you to my list of "total strangers with great blogs" because you are and you do.

so there.

Sue said...

We have a jungle puzzle that makes noise and in the middle of the night I'll hear things roaring and hissing. Freaks me out every single time.

Azúcar said...

Last night I took a zester to the ambulance (couldn't find a screwdriver that very second) and pried out the now rusted batteries.

acte--more on that to come later.

just wait until the kids are older and begging you to buy them a Jonas Brothers Cd. My 5 1/2 year old and 4 year old were asking for a High School Musical Cd in the store the other day! Their 5 1/2 and 4 way to young for this scene.

Rynell said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one with possessed toys at my house.

megcb said...

Lucky for us we don't get those programmes here -ok we can't escape the disney channel stuff, but no AI.

I listened to your voice too. Good heavens, you have an american accent (who knew? having a real moron moment there...).

by the way LOL at poor little proximo's stockholm syndrome, only to be interrupted by my son walking in having been dressed as a bridesmaid by his older sisters.
