Saw this yesterday while waiting for my daughter to try on jeans at American Eagle. I couldn’t help it…before I knew it I was wiggling and jiggling right along with him. :) Enjoy!
Tonight, I share with you a piece of my crazy, fun family! This is my Dad, my cousin Edward, and my “Uncles” Moe and Pete entertaining Mister. This was too priceless to keep to myself. :) Enjoy.
So, normally the TV is not mine in the afternoons…there is nothing I care to watch, so Disney Channel or whatever Big Girl wants to watch is background noise to whatever I am doing. However, yesterday while stuck on the couch with nothing to do but feel sorry for my poor pitiful sick self (I had the stomach bug for anyone not following my Twitter or Facebook) I found myself all alone watching Disney Channel. Realizing that no one else was watching, I decided to flip channels and see what this wide world of cable had to offer.
I wound up on Ellen, and she was interviewing Dennis Quaid (who seems quite the darling I must say.) Apparently the last time he was on, they pulled a prank on a local Starbucks and the short clip she shared was hilarious. I found the full version on YouTube, and if you haven’t yet seen it, it’s worth a watch. :) We could all use a chuckle….Especially those of us who didn’t enjoy 72 degree weather today. *ahem* ;P
And of course, they pulled another prank yesterday…this time on a delivery guy. Enjoy!
Okay, so this guy makes me giggle in an “is he for real?!” sort of way, but I think he’s going to go far. He’s over the top….but I have to admit, I’m fascinated! And man, does he have some pipes!!!!
Well, looks like the intestinal bug has hit my house…comparatively mild by virus standards, but here nonetheless. We’re also supposed to get hit with a whopper of a storm up here, so power may be iffy. (Thinking of you S.T. and hoping your flights aren’t affected.) Since it might be a bit quiet around here for a couple of days, I’ll leave you with this:
They finally got their PosterBoy!
Music is the backdrop of our lives, and that is most apparent during the Christmas season. I share with you a small collection of my favorites. Enjoy!
My very favorite…I listen to this one first to put me in the right frame of mind…It helps me keep Christmas in perspective.
And then Zan and I dance in our kitchen to this one every day after Thanksgiving…trust me…the video is much sexier than our dance in the kitchen, with Mister trying to climb up our legs!
And this one brings back memories! Talk about sexy….
And here’s a tearjerker…
And this pair together…classic!
And here’s our boy havin’ a good ol’ time!
Well, I still have a list the length of my arm to finish by Wednesday even though we’ve been going nonstop for a week! I have my sister-in-law’s family coming in from out of town on Wednesday morning, and will be cooking my eleventh annual Thanksgiving dinner for 20 on Thursday. We finished painting the living room yesterday, and hung the rest of the shades. Still have to scrape the paint off four window, paint a radiator, vacuum/dust, scrub the downstairs floors (upstairs got done yesterday), disinfect bathrooms, and clear off the dining room table that is still piled with all the stuff we moved in order to paint the living room. BUT, I *think* it will all get done with time to spare if Mister Baby Boy chooses to be cooperative today.
In any case, I don’t know if I will get a chance to post again before the holiday, so I wanted to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! There are so many things I am thankful for, I couldn’t even begin to list them all…I’d be here all day! But I will say that on that list are all of you who stop by here each day…you have taught me how to “see” and that has been a very precious gift. Thank you!
Many blessings to all of you and your families.
Only Gordon Ramsay would make his children fatten up the turkeys for their holiday celebration. If you’re not into watching turkeys get stunned to death and plucked, skip Episode 8. *shudder*
Apparently he moved on to pigs and lambs after this…episodes can also be found on youtube. Happy cooking!
(Me wame’s a bit curdled after watching that bit.)
I can’t let today go by without sending a word of thanks out to all our veterans, past and present, active and inactive. I am humbled by your sacrifices, and haven’t the words to explain the depth of my gratitude.
A few words from Ronald Reagan…
The girls were asking me a week ago which cartoons I watched as a kid, and this one immediately came to mind. Shrew and Music Maven remembered the cartoon well, and linked me to the YouTube video of it. I thought it fitting for Halloween. Enjoy the step back in time this Halloween morning, to childhood for some of us, when things were simpler. As I watch this, I’m back in my grandparents living room on Elizabeth Street watching Loony Tunes, with my Pepiere in the kitchen listening to country music and reading his western novel, and my Memiere cooking and sharing news with whoever was sitting at the table. The smell of coffee and pie, the sounds of warm conversation and laughter. Comfort.
Have a great day making your own memories!
In last night’s debate, Senator Obama stated that 100% of Senator McCain’s ads have been negative, but this commercial in particular stuck out in my mind. I’m surprised that Senator Obama didn’t remember this one.
*We now return to our regularly scheduled “political-free” programming.*
Here I share with you the favorite Fun-with-YouTube-Night video. I wish I could share with you Mister Baby Boy’s giggle as he watched this…I have to just shake my head.
So, we’re watching America’s Got Talent on DVR last night, and little Kaitlyn Maher comes up. I say to Zan, “I think this little one has gotten this far on pure cuteness.” Then she goes and sings this song and brings tears to my eyes. Check it out…if you want to skip all the backstory stuff and get right to the performance, skip ahead to 1:45 or so on the video.
And you MUST MUST MUST watch these guys!! Un-freakin-believable!
HAD to share this So You Think You Can Dance moment from my two favorite dancers from this past week. Enjoy Joshua and Katee in one of the most impressive dances of the season. Chills, I tell ya, chills.
Okay, so, while watching America’s Got Talent tonight, I saw the two accordian players, and could’ve sworn there had been a Saturday Night Live sketch about two accordian players. Apparently not. Apparently I’m as delusional as some of the people auditioning. However, in the midst of my YouTube wanderings, I came across some old favorites. So, since I think we could all use a good laugh for one reason or another, I present to you a collection of my old favorites. Enjoy!
I got a fevah, and the only prescription, is more cowbell!
A Special Christmas Treat:
And speaking of Christmas….
I wish you all a fabulous Fourth! Enjoy your families and friends, and eat and drink well! And while you’re at it, say a prayer in your hearts and drink a toast (or two, or three….) to those who made, and continue to make, our Independence Days possible. May God Bless America…Heaven knows we need all the help we can get.
And for all you thirty somethings out there, a little step back in time.
Chelsea and Mark:
Twitch and Kherington:
And check out my man Joshua’s hips in this Samba! Love these two!!
(I hope these videos work…I couldn’t get them to load here due to my little internet problem…but I think they should be okay for you. *crossing*fingers*)
It’s a big night ya know.
Little Girl, can’t wait, but Big Girl SWEARS she doesn’t want to watch it—says she will suffer through for the sake of family time. “But I know I won’t like it!” she says. Apparently fourth grade is the cut-off in these here parts for Jo-Bro love. Or maybe it’s her father’s fault…He calls them the Jone-ass brothers…and according to him they’re starring in Camp Suck.
*sigh* See what I have to deal with?
(But here’s a little secret…I’ll bet he’ll be whistling some Joni tunes while he works on the deck this weekend. *wink*)
Okay, so I was sitting in Lowe’s parking lot over the weekend and Rick Astley came on the radio. It brought a reminiscent smile to my face…who knew a skinny red-headed white boy could have this voice? So I told my daughters I would find this on YouTube so they could see the singer…Well, I promptly forgot.
However, while I was playing on YouTube yesterday, I happened to run across this video out of the blue. I was not looking for Rick Astley…in fact, I believe I clicked on a video that was titled something like, “Now THIS is a REAL alien video!!!” (No, I’m not kidding.) I got to wondering whatever happened to Ricky…so decided to do a little looking.
And there it is folks. The first “Where are they now?” post at Half Hour.
And since I don’t want to be the ONLY one here with this FREAKING SONG PLAYING IN MY FREAKING HEAD OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER….I thought I’d share. XO
Last night’s highlight…Kherington and Twitch. Simply gorgeous.
Some highlights from last night’s premiere…
Neil Boyd sings opera…
Kaitlyn Maher aged 4.
Baton Boy…David Hasselhoff tells him he can tell all the kids who used to make fun of him to “shove it!”
Nuttin’ But Stringz…very cool.
Jonathan Arons puts Napoleon Dynamite to shame.
And of course, since it’s America’s Got Talent, we need one performance from Bizarro World. This guy looks more like Britney than Britney does.
So, it looks like I’ll be watching after all.
