1. Didn't watch... spent the afternoon buying a car for my oldest and thus chose to go out joyriding with her all evening. Besides, the recaps online tell me all I need to know.

2. Seriously? Did I ask myself this question? There are too many! I guess I'd have to choose Tomas Crazy. Or P-Hil. Or J-Simp.

3. Wild sex with SJP.

4. College Football. woot!

5. Spend time with our kids.

1. I watched/didn't watch the Emmy Awards because I didn't care. I stopped watching them when Danny Kaye didn't win best guest star on The Cosby show the year he died.

2. The celebrity I would like to hear less about in the news right now is Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson, almost all of them

3. The excuse Matthew Broderick should have used for breaking his collarbone (he fell off a horse in Ireland) is SJP beat the crap out of him.

4. I am most anticipating the new tv season.

5. Since Monday is an American holiday (Labor Day), I think I will be driving back from Lancaster and going with my sister to pick up her new car.

1. I watched/didn't watch the Emmy Awards because I was underwhelmed, but I did look up at the pretty dresses from time to time.

2. The celebrity I would like to hear less about in the news right now is always Tom Cruise. Shut up, you dillhole.

3. The excuse Matthew Broderick should have used for breaking his collarbone (he fell off a horse in Ireland) is that he met up with Darby O'Gill and they were dancing a jig when it all very suddenly went awry.

4. I am most anticipating getting out of my career someday.

5. Since Monday is an American holiday (Labor Day), I think I will have a picnic!

othur-me said...

1. Because I never do. And not because I hate award shows or anything, just because its not nearly as entertaining as the oscars, the tonies, or the MTV music awards.

2. Carrot Top. I can never hear too little about Carrot Top, although he may not even be in the news right now.

3. Look, I'm Matthew Broderick, not Willy Shoemaker.

4. Long weekend.

5. Play bridge.

-R- said...

1. I watched the Emmy Awards because Conan was hosting.

2. The celebrity I would like to hear less about in the news right now (change to ALWAYS) is Paris Hilton.

3. The excuse Matthew Broderick should have used for breaking his collarbone (he fell off a horse in Ireland) is he fell off the float in Chicago's St. Patrick's Day Parade.

4. I am most anticipating The Office's new season.

5. Since Monday is an American holiday (Labor Day), I think I will celebrate my first wedding anniversary.

This was fun! I may steal this idea some day!

(PS Does Von Maur have any good office clothes?)

-R- said...

What kind of car did you get for your daughter?

MiMaw said...

1. Oh...did I miss the Emmies?
2. All of them. But mostly the snotty blond girls.
3. Damn! DCMM you took my answer!
4. The sale of our home...sometime...anytime soon would be nice.
5. Do non-laborious activities. Since it is a holiday, shouldn't it be called NonLabor Day?

Jaek said...

1. I didn't watch the Emmies because I am straight.

2. The celebrity I would like to hear less about in the news right now is Paris Hilton...I mean, c'mon...she's not even a real human.

3. The excuse Matthew Broderick should have used for breaking his collarbone (he fell off a horse in Ireland) is Cameron finally kicked his ass for taking his dad's car.

4. I am most anticipating starting school next week.

5. Since Monday is an American holiday (Labor Day), I will do nothing different than any other day. The day after is my Son's 6th birthday.

don't call me MA'AM said...

libragirl: wow. You could combine your Matthew Broderick excuse with mine and get a REALLY good excuse! ;-)

nabbalicious: Dillhole. hee hee And I'm still laughing over "dancing a jig when it all very suddenly went awry." Good one!

othur-me: Apparently, you really dislike Carrot Top? I haven't heard about him in ages. Is there a good story behind this hatred?

-r-: If I would have been home, I would have watched when Conan was on, and then channel-surfed when anyone else was on stage.
Von Maur? Nah. Not so much. Especially compared to our dear-departed CasualPetiteNoLongerInBusinessWhatTheHellAmIGoingToDO Store.

Car: a 7 year old Chevy Cavalier. She loves it. She named it The Dread Pirate Nigel.

MiMaw: Snotty blonde girls... good call! They should all just go away.

othur-me said...

DCMM - does there need to be?

hannah said...

1. Didn't, because does anyone really need to see rich people force laughter at terrible jokes and win awards just to stroke their ego.

2. Matthew McConaughey and Lance Armstrong. WTF?

3. Seeing how SJP actually looks like a horse (I believe that some refer to her as My Little Parker Pony), there's your answer.

4. The release of JT's album. Slap me.

5. Indulge in sex, drugs, rock'n'roll. Or sleep in.

Sparkling Cipher said...

1. I didn't watch the Emmy Awards because I am sooo sick of awards shows, though I heard Conan was pretty good - I can see what everyone wore when People has their Emmy fashion issue.

2. The celebrity I would like to hear less about in the news right now is Jessica Simpson - even laughing at the dumb stuff she says is getting old.

3. The excuse Matthew Broderick should have used for breaking his collarbone (he fell off a horse in Ireland) is wild sex - that's almost always a good excuse.

4. I am most anticipating #5.

5. Since Monday is an American holiday (Labor Day), I think I will go swimming and read as many books as I can cram into one weekend.

Margaret Ann said...

1. We went to a block party on our street and the Emmy's can't compete with S'mores. Plus, all the dresses will be hashed over the next day anyway, so I'll still get to see the interesting part.

2.Paris Hilton and Jeremy Piven...I am irritated by the sight of them.
3. horse fall works for me.
4.birth of babe
5.celebrate with my sis who will be in town and try not to spend money since our car repairs are going to be--gasp! $1105.75 (at least they didn't say $1106 b/c that would've been too much)

3carnations said...

1. I watched 10 minutes of the Emmy Awards because the remote brought me there briefly.

2. The celebrity I would like to hear less about in the news is Tom Cruise.

3. The excuse Matthew Broderick should have used for breaking his collarbone is "You should have seen the other guy".

4. I am most anticipating going home after work today and spending time with my family.

5. Since Monday is an American holiday (Labor Day), I think I will do something fun with my son and husband.

tammara said...

1. The Emmies were on? Oh darn. Missed em again.
2. Tom Cruise. UGH. Scotty, beam him UP already.
3. Wild sex with SJP - definitely.
4. My husband's graduation and return to an income six times mine, so I don't have to budget in a frickin mocha frappuccino.
5. Work my usual shift - for time and a half wages. Woo. Hoo.

Stinkypaw said...

1. I didn't watch the Emmy Awards because I didn't know they were on... darn!

2. The celebrity I would like to hear less about in the news right now is Tom Cruise. Enough already!

3. The excuse Matthew Broderick should have used for breaking his collarbone (he fell off a horse in Ireland) is that the kamasutra implies a lot of flexibility!

4. I am most anticipating Christmas! (I know, I know... but I luuuvvvv Christmas!)

5. Since Monday is an American holiday (Labor Day), I think I will be off as well, because it is also "our" Labor day! ;-)

Paisley said...

1. I didn't watch because I just don't care. Most of TV sucks right now and they keep cancelling the good shows.

2. Paris Freaking Hilton.

3. I agree with your #1. :)

4. the birth of my child. eek!

5. try to find a pool to float in and be lazy.

wire said...

1. Not a chance - so many more fun things i could be doing.

2. All of them! Thankfully my exposure to celebrity news is incredibly low.

3. Testing his new rocket boots. C'mon! Who doesn't need rocket boots?

4. The day teleporters become commercially available. Think about it, it would change so much more than transportation. It'd be a revolution that would effect architecture, commerce, utilities (toilets would just be a bowl with teleporter in the bottom!) and all sorts of stuff!!!

Anyway...

5. Go to work, lazy Americans... (i jest)

don't call me MA'AM said...

othur-me: ummmm... yes?

hannah: My Little Parker Pony? That's is the funniest thing I've heard all day!

Sparkling Cipher: I agree on the awards shows... those people are soooo out of tune with reality, it's not even funny. Ah, and reading books all weekend. I think I might have to consider that!

Margaret Ann: S'Mores RULE! Good luck on not spending any money. I'm really bad at that.

3carnations: we don't talk about Tomas Crazy here. We just don't. ;-) I like your Broderick excuse. haha!

tammara: if we talked about Tomas Crazy here, I would be SOOOO with you on Scotty beaming him up already. Love it! And I'm very curious how much your frickin mocha frappucino costs. I don't drink those, but they seem a bit high here!

stinkypaw: ooooh! I love the kama sutra excuse! Perfect! And I love Christmas, too.

paisley: it's like P-Hil's face is EVERYWHERE. My daughter wanted to buy some perfume tonight, and there was her freaking face on a bottle! Gah!!!

wire: everyone TOTALLY needs rocket boots. Absolutely! And we know you aren't jesting. You actually think we're a bunch of simps who get the day off on a day called LABOR Day. I know your kind. ;-)

Maliavale said...

Um, hi. I was gone. Can I comment late? Great.

1. I did because I was on vacation with girlfriends, and there was wine and TV!

2. Paris Hilton. Sorry, that was an obvious answer, wasn't it?

3. He was beaten by his gay lover in a fit of fiery passion.

4. Fall. Glorious, cool, sweet fall.

5. Eat Fronch fries?

don't call me MA'AM said...

maliavale: of course! I'm SOOOO anticipating fall. The last two days here have been absolutely glorious.
