You callin' me a liar?

First, an American Idol recap: Who thinks they should just give the title to the cute girl with the sick daughter? Me, too!

Next: Bambi II arrived last week, and we have been watching it all the time, mostly while WCK sits on the potty refusing to pee. WCK loves the movie, and I have to admit that I enjoy it, too. I think it might even be better than the first movie. I never thought I'd say that about a direct-to-DVD Disney movie. Bambi II is the first one I've ever seen. Jay and I have always been big Disney fans, to the point of being big Disney snobs. We'd always scoff at the idea of the direct-to-video "sequels" -- you know, Aladdin II, Cinderella Part Three, what have you. We always said that when we had kids, we wouldn't allow them to watch anything but the "real" Disney movies. Apparently, we had no idea that there were so many other more important things to worry about -- such as figuring out how to keep a child alive -- so our Disney principles fell by the wayside. I guess I'm glad, because I really do enjoy Bambi II. Maybe I just like hearing Patrick Stewart (who voices the dad) say, "Bambi" all the time.

Anyway. One of the plot lines involves a snotty rival fawn named Ronno who is always picking on Bambi and making snide remarks. At one point, he says to Bambi, "You callin' me a liar?" WCK thinks this is HILARIOUS, and now she goes around saying this. She says it to friends, to complete strangers, to random mothers at AirZone. She often accompanies it with an evil eye, which makes it all the more shocking and hilarious and makes me look all the more like a terrible mother.

At least she's (mostly) given up her favorite line from Milo and Otis, which was "Okay .... PUNK!"

I knew I heard her say something about "liar" the other day. Too funny!

I can vouch for this one. She said it to me at least 5 times today. It was pretty darn cute:)

Hi..Really funny fish tale.
Have you ever heard of Mona Vie? Before you roll your eyes let me tell you, I am NOT a salesperson of the stuff. I have only recently (last week) become aware of it myself.
I fell down a flight of stairs the day after Christmas and have been laid up ever since with a seriously damaged knee. It could have been a lot worse but that's not the point. After two weeks my leg was not getting any better. In fact, some days, I was convinced it was actually getting worse.
A friend of mine, who doesn't sell Mona Vie as much as he gives it away, sent three bottles of the juice to me as a gift. He also sent a bunch of literature that sang the praises of this stuff and made me roll MY eyes and cast it aside. But my friend is one of the smartest people I know and nobody's fool and he kept calling me and bugging me so I started drinking it. A two ouce shot in the morning and another in the afternoon. It doesn't taste great, but it tastes ok, so I made a commitment to doing the three bottles he paid for and sent, just to appease him and to see for myself if this juice is as great as all these MLMers are claiming. The reports on it are ridiculously optimistic: It lowers blood pressure, it is an anti inflammatory, it improves eyesight and libido, it cures diabetes and (yes) even cancer!! End stage cancer even!! I'm the poster girl for skepticism, let me tell you. I'm also a prime guinea pig for Mona Vie because I have a lot of the problems these people claim this stuff fixes...and I trust my friend's judgement and he says he has friends and relatives who have experienced remarkable things from using the juice. People he knows personally, right? His brother in law is off his insulin...just doesn't need it anymore. A friend of his wife had tumors on her overies just disappear..stuff like that.
I also noticed while reading stuff about this juice on line that there are many Doctors and scientist types going bananas over this juice.
I have been on it for 6 days and the swelling in my leg is down so much that you have to look at both legs to see if it's swollen at all. My achilles tendon, which was so torn and painful that I couldn't put my foot on the floor, is completely healed (6 days!) after two weeks of no progress at all. The pain before was so omnipresent that I couldn't tell where the actual damage was. Now the only discomfort I have is in my knee and I can pinpoint the source.
And that's not all. I have this seriously high blood pressure (200 over 120),I'm a walking stroke! and I don't take the meds they prescribe because I can't really afford them and they dehydrate me and hurt my liver and kidneys. And on top of that my blood pressure was still up there. With the juice, it is coming down every day a little more. And I can feel it. I have this general feeling of well being. I'm just not stressed out anymore. It's weird.
That same friend came across your blog last night while doing research on cancer, and sent me a link because he thought I'd enjoy reading it. I did btw, but I also see it as an omen. That's why I'm writing to you.
Go to and do some research of your own. Check out the nutritional break down of the juice and check out what Dr Lou ( I can't remember his last name) has to say. He's an end stage cancer specialist who is making remarkable discoveries in the effectiveness of treating his patients with Mona Vie. I'm not trying to get you to sell Mona Vie or anything. I don't even care if you get it through my friend or not.
It costs about $40 a bottle...less if you're a member) and people complain about that. But they'll spend that on a bottle of wine, or their organic vitamin supplements, (which you don't need anymore if you use the juice) or a month's worth of visits to Starbucks. It's all relative. If Mona Vie can cure cancer, isn't it worth whatever it costs? My BP meds were running me $300 a month and they weren't effective AND I was having negative side effects to boot.
I have a real feeling about this juice and I am spreading the word.
Give it a try. Spend enough to do it for 30 days ( about $130). If you want to gothroughh my friend, that's cool, if not that's cool too. The important thing is...PLEASE give it a trial run and see what happens to those numbers.
You're young and have a beautiful life in front of you. Grab it. Kick ass!
Do me a favor...let me know if you're going to do it because I want to document it..I'm documenting my own thirty day test run, and would love to know how it works for you.
If you can't afford it or are too skeptical to spend the money...let me know and I will try to work it out to get you some for free. I really think this is that important, and I think I came across you by the powers that guide us.
If you CAN afford it, PLEASE buy some and do it for a month. You've got nothing to lose.
Your friend in spirit.
