My Very Eager Mother Just Served Us Noodles (Please)
Mercury, Venus, Earth, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune (and Pluto's no longer a planet).
Frankie's very into astronomy these days. Tomorrow night is the last lunar eclipse until 2014! We're all in a tizzy preparing for the event tomorrow night which commences at 8:44 pm. We're going to make popcorn and watch it for a full 74 minutes.
This device is what we're going to use to create a model prior to the event. Just add fruit. The big discussion around the dinner table tonight was about what should represent the sun. A big, bold, wonderful pomelo or a stinky little orange. Feel free to agree with me in the comments. The earth will likely be a marshmallow (colored to an accurate representation) and the moon, a mini-marshmallow, of course.

I might have missed that entirely! Thanks for the public service announcement. And cast my vote for the pommelo, because they're my favorite.
Yeah, 'cause the sub looks SO MUCH like a greenish, pear-shaped pomelo. (eyeroll)Sheesh.(/eyeroll)
Uh, that should be "sun"...
Hey, at least your sentence still works...we used to say "my very enormous mother just served us ninety pizzas"
If I hadn't done freelance stuff for a company writing science textbooks, I'd have never known about Pluto's demotion.
