Life Without Baby

Filling the silence in the motherhood discussion

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang expected to soar at auction May 14, 2011

It’s been quite an emotional week this week, between Mother’s Day, post-show adrenaline drop, and the raging sinus infection that will not go away. I’m feeling like I need an Eat, Pray, Love kind of escape.

After my “I don’t want to talk about this” post on Wednesday, Sue (check) suggested that blogging about something other than being childfree and infertile might do me a world of good. After fainting at the thought of getting a whole new blog up and running (and fed with posts) I decided that what this blog needs is a little silly every now and then.

And so, for something completely different…

Big news this week! Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is going up on the auction block this Sunday. I asked my friends if any of them would lend me a couple of million bucks so I could put in a bid, but alas, they all declined.

I think I may rent this movie this weekend, just for old times’ sake. I bet even as you read this, you’re singing:

Oh (Chitty) you (Chitty), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, we love you.

And (Chitty) in (Chitty) Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’s what we’ll do!

In case you aren’t, here’s a little something to help you.

Which icons of your childhood would you be willing to drop a couple of million on (if money were no object?) Or what’s your favorite guilty pleasure movie?

    Good for you! I think that it’s a great idea to post some “fun” stuff to this blog. My guilty pleasure movie is “Pride and Prejudice.” Call me a sap but it is just so romantic.

    i used to LOVE that film – tho the childcatchers used to scare the crap out of me!!

    i’ve started incorporating as many positive [as i can muster, some days it’s just NOT going to happen] posts as i can on my blog – it makes a nice change.

    Hmmm … I’d buy one of the many horses I was crazy about in books and films and TV. Not that I can ride … but with a few spare million bucks I’d learn!

    Any & all of the Beach Party movies with Frankie Avalon & Annette Funicello. I especially liked the one where Frankie was also the Potato Bug, lol.

    Love Chitty Chitty Bang Bang! How can you not sing the lyrics as soon as you hear the title?

    Hope you feel better soon.

    What a great idea, Lisa! It’s fun to have a little silliness injected into the no-babyness. I need both!
    If I could buy an icon from my youth it might be one of the muppets. A few years ago I saw that Emmet Otter and his mom were displayed at the Smithsonian. Around Christmas I love watching Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas.
