A Very Anti-Climactic Update

Remember VC's video I spoke to you about on Tuesday? The one he was hesitant to televise to the entire school (1,300+ kids) -- it ends up all of the stress was all for naught; Thanks to the marvel of NON-modern technology, the DVD would not play in the school's antiquated DVD system that is used to project onto the classroom TV's for the morning announcements.

The librarian provided us with a disk in a format she thought would work, but she tried it again yesterday and it was a No Go.

VC was bittersweet about the whole thing. On the one hand, he would have loved to have shown his talents to the students; on the other hand, he would have potentially suffered at the hands of the likes of these guys:

"Uh huh huh huh"

Speaking of students, did anyone see this picture of Salma Hayek reading Dora The Explorer to kids at Nickelodeon Animation Studio in Burbank this week:

I spent one day out of every week reading to my son's kindergarten class and for some reason, although there were close to 40 weeks in the school year, I never got around to wearing my plunging neckline black dress. I wonder why that was?

Before I even got to the part about Selma, I saw that picture and knew exactly what you were going to say. WTH was she thinking????

Robin said...

glad your son is off the hook.....now about the dress..I guess you wouldnt wear it because you have style, class and taste....and maybe she thought she was reading to the execs at Nick...or maybe the cast of Nick Jr....eeewwwww..!..its late..who knows what Im thinking..LOL

Lisa Paul said...

We all think VC is a superstar, whether or not his DVD plays or whether his mother can be bothered to show up in a plunging neckline cocktail dress. Although, couldn't you see your way fit to show up in Belly Dancing regalia for this important cause?

Petite Little Bee said...

Cute post. Made me laugh it is so true. Thanks for sharing!!! Cheers, Lia

As you say, a bittersweet result for VC. Any chance of us seeing it instead?

You might be surprised but I'm going to stick up for Salma Hayek -I saw a news clip recently where she had breast fed a stranger's starving baby in Africa. I was initially taken aback and then I thought well why not? Isn't that actually the right and laudible thing to do (providing the natural Mum is OK with it)? I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt in this case therefore because it may just be that she is someone with a totally different, and relaxed attitude towards the human body. (Actually the way things tend to be generally here in Europe). Mummies have boobies and she wasn't showing vast, surgically inflated globes fighting to pop out of her dress. The photographer's camera angle is also effectively looking down her cleavage.

(Am I sticking my head above the parapet, just waiting to have it blown off here)?!

Beth said...

I wear a plunging neckline to school every day. Is there a problem with that? =)

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Glad things worked out for your son. Not sure what Salma was thinking other than a photo op.

Mommakin said...

Yeah, I'm gonna go with Angelcel. Frankly, if my boobs were as fabulous as Selma's I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be hiding 'em... And - yeah - the camera angle... While she wasn't hiding them, I don't know that she was exactly flaunting them, either. They are what they are. And - as Angelcel also pointed out - there are cultural variations as to what's acceptable.

Joy said...

Leave it to Salma to bring The Girls with her. To school.

I have to say I'm kinda glad that they had technical difficulties. Kids can be so stupid and it's probably for the best.

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

I think that just illustrates how far from reality actors/actresses are removed. hmmm, should I show my cleavage wherever I go? of course! I'm a movie star.

Yankee Girl said...

The comments you have already gotten are so funny!

Selma is pushing it a little. I have huge knockers and when I am around small children a simple crew neck works fine for me.

Bethany said...

Woahhh Selma! Yikes!

Michelle Pixie said...

Yea I don't get around to dusting off my little black dress for story time either...I have to say though my little black dress only comes out for very special occasions and is really not so appropriate for the kindergartners. Although my dress doesn't even have the plunging neckline quite like that...maybe she was just trying to be prepared incase anyone was hungry!

Rebecca Jo said...

I guess that dress is better then lingerie ?????

Randi Troxell said...

still though glad it worked out for VC.. to me this is one of those instances where it's better safe than sorry...

i know right! hellooooo Salma.. we so know you are hot.. but the kiddies do NOT need big boobies in their face!!!

buffalodick said...

The best laid plans... I hope he gets his chance soon!
The dress...kids were probably reminded of milk and cookies... :)

Christina said...

Glad to hear everything went well with VC, even it it was just dumb luck.

Maybe Selma thought it was Show & Tell day? ;-)

Mocha Dad said...

Maybe you should get Salma to wear that dress and present VC's video to the students.

blueviolet said...

I found the chance to sport my cleavage as I read to the children. Try harder! ;)

Maybe that was divine intervention for your son. :)

BigLittleWolf said...

Hmmm. I'm sure all those years I volunteered in elementary school I was in my cute get-up with the cleavage. (Actually, I probably was. But on the floor, with the kids, with cleavage.)

Funny post!

Robin said...

Geee....I hate to say it but....I don't even own a little black dress with deep plunging neck line.
:-)

Hope your day today was beautiful...

McVal said...

Good deal with your son's project! But I hope he got a good grade for it anyway. My daughter did a video project a few weeks ago and put it on Facebook for her teacher to see and grade. They were able to play it for the class (not that many kids!) for the presentation.
I wore a revealing dress like that once to read Everyone Poops to a 2nd grade class. They never invited me back... :P

Salt said...

Nice boobs, Selma. I'm sure all the parents of those kids were very pleased. :)

Crystal Escobar said...

haha, I liked your last comment about forgetting to wear your low neck dress while reading to the children. So funny!

tattytiara said...

Oh I always find it so frustrating when I get all keyed up worrying about something I have to do and then it gets canceled or something - even if I dreaded it it's like a curiosity never satisfied.

Mommyof2girlz said...

Stop by the blog and see my feature post, follow the link, you were mentioned :) Kisses

Feeling Fit With Dana said...

Glad that your son got the reprieve he was looking for. Salma always seems to have the girls on display, why not for kindergarteners?

Lacie @ Creative Attempts said...

mac said...

MMMMM, Salma :-)
