Leaving On A Jet Plane...

Mysterious Monday to you all, my little gingersnaps. You may have figured out by now that I'm not your average, sane person. And the entire G-family is also a bit nuts. So here is a discussion Mr. G and I had on Saturday.

Me: "Are you starting the new movie on Monday?"

Mr. G: "No, I just heard it pushed back, so I'm off all week."

Me: "We should go somewhere with the kids. San Diego?"

Mr. G: "We should go to Hawaii or something, hahahaha."

Me: "We SHOULD go to Hawaii."

Mr. G: "Okay, let's do it. We'll make our plane & hotel reservations when we get home."

Me: "Monday-Sunday?"

Mr. G: "Yeah!"

Me: "Sweet!"

And that, my friends is why I'm probably on a jet plane to Hawaii (Oahu) while you are reading this. And this is also why two people who are both the youngest in their families should never get married... because no one is responsible and you end up doing crazy things like this. I'm hoping to be able to blog during the sun's peak hours, when I'm hiding in the hotel (as the ginger that I am, and as evidenced by my last trip to Hawaii.) though the kids will be with us, so I expect I won't get lei'd as much as I did our previous trip to Hawaii. Though we do have separate rooms! #crossesfingers

In the news, a woman had a carpenter build her a miniature version of The Burrow (the Weasley's house in Harry Potter), attached to the back of her house and made for her cats. This is something I would totally do. *wondering how to get the contact info for the carpenter*

Thanks Susan!

And we finally get to see the blessed twins' faces!!! And they look like regular babies. I must say I approve of their nicknames, Roc & Roe instead of being reminded that they are named after a bipolar actress that committed suicide and an adjective.

Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon Debut Roc & Roe!

Check out these first pictures of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe!

The couple debuted their adorable babies, who are 6 months old, on 20/20 during an interview with Barbara Walters.

Not only did Roc and Roe make their first public appearance, but Mariah and Nick also opened up about their marriage and getting pregnant.

“The main thing I did that was tough, was to go on progesterone like every month… and then when I was pregnant, I had to stay with the progesterone for 10 weeks,” Mariah said of her difficulty getting pregnant.

“They’re incredible…But I will say that they really respond to music,” they added about their little ones.

Ladies and gents, prepare to feel old. Really, really old. Jonathan Lipnicki, that little kid with the glasses in "Jerry McGuire" just turned 21. Am I the only one who thought the kid had Downs Syndrome?

Jonathan Lipnicki, the inquisitive tyke who charmed Tom Cruise's Jerry Maguire with his oversized glasses and musings on bees' ability to smell fear in the 1997 film, turned 21 Saturday.

The actor is celebrating the milestone birthday in Las Vegas with his parents, his sister, an aunt, three cousins and an assortment of friends.

The Lipnickis celebrated Friday with a dinner at Tao before arriving a little after midnight at the Surrender Nightclub at the Encore, where he enjoyed vodka cocktails with his buddies late into the night.

The party continued Saturday with a cake and dinner at Lavo.

And now, with today's FAIL. Please, anything but JesusWeen.

Google unsuccessfully tried to sell itself in 1999 for $1 million

Remember Neither do most people. However, they were big cats in the search engine business right before the year 2000. Back then, Google was not the behemoth it is nowadays; in fact, it was still a project from Stanford Graduate students who thought it was taking too much time that would be better spent studying.

Sergey Brin and Larry Page, the creators of Google then went to Excite and tried to sell him the search engine for $1 million. Apparently this was a laughable proposal for then CEO, George Bell. He not only rejected their offer, he also threw an Excite venture capitalists out of his office when he tried to negotiate them down to only $750,000! This has gone down in history as one of the dumbest business decisions ever.

  1. Have fun in Hawaii! Love you two spontaneous kids!! I'm sure the G-Lets will have a fantastic time exploring with you. I'd like to attend your homeschool, it seems like a lot of fun!

    I'm ashamed to say that the bus in your FAIL photo is a TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) bus. SMH. I'll be on the lookout to see if I can find one with that ridiculous ad!
