I'll Come At You Like A Spidermonkey!

We've had Ricky Bobby on pretty much a continuous loop here for the last two weeks. Seriously, I can watch that movie again and again and my appreciation for Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly only deepens. And Molly Shannon is riveting, even passed out on a tabletop. The downside, of course, is Jackson memorizing chunks of wildly inappropriate dialogue. "I'm all jacked up on Mountain Dew!" he says to me when I'm tying his shoes before school. "I gotta lay off the peyote!" he shouts at the man delivering our pizza. I know you waited all week for this truly meaningful post.
