Best part’s at 2:14.

I’ll admit it, I saw this first on Mighty Girl.

What time is it?

Posted by Gin on September 28, 2009

1. Howdy Doody time.
2. IT’S PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME.
3. To make the donuts
4. To say goodbye, To all our company.

Help me out, what else is it time for?

You can roll a thought around in your head on your own for weeks, months, but hearing someone else say it to you, out loud, can be a real kick in the crotch.

A Pandora-Inspired List

Posted by Gin on September 26, 2009

Because it’s been a while since I’ve done one.

Songs To Which I Recall Making Up Car Dances Which I May Or May Not Still Do Alone In The Car (or, I Didn’t Get Out Much In High School, Apparently).

  1. Jumpin, Jumpin by Destiny’s Child
  2. Come Together by Aerosmith
  3. Yeah by Usher (a-ha, one from college! I remember Aaron doing this dance, too)
  4. Are You That Somebody by Aaliyah
  5. For What It’s Worth (Stop, Hey, What’s That Sound) by Buffalo Springfield
  6. Flagpole Sitta by Harvey Danger
  7. OLD SCHOOL: I Think We’re Alone Now by Tiffany

Everything’s more fun with interpretive hand motions.

A Typical Friday Night

Posted by Gin on September 26, 2009

Me: (listening to music and playing Scrabble in my jammy-jams)

John: Come on, we need to go to the store for cat food and stuff.

Me: I don’t want to.

John: COME ON, you said you’d go with me!

Me: YOU ARE SO MEAN.

John: What are you talking about?

Me: You make me put on pants! And go places! Where there are people! GOD!

Me: (Comes out of the bedroom 5 minutes later; I am now wearing all appropriate under- and outer-garments)

John: (Watching Family Feud like an old man)

Me: Let’s go.

John: But I’m watching Family Feud!

Me: OH MY GOD!

John: Ok, next commercial.

The End

Happy Weekend!

Trisha, are you on Twitter? Who is Tweeting? I want to follow you all, my chickens.

So I get that the “Single Ladies” spoofs are played out, but I have to say, football players putting a ring on it is still pretty entertaining.

(The goodness starts at around 2:30).

P.S. It is my secret (or maybe not-so-secret) life’s dream to learn and perform this dance.

P.P.S. I also thought one of the last scenes with Kurt and his father was really nice.

P.P.P.S. You should totally watch this show, and then we can start a glee club for grown-ups.

I added a Pandora widget to the side over there ====>, so you can check out all the junk I’m listening to. I’ve been rocking out this morning, as it is gray and rainy and making me reeeeeally sleeeeeepy, so I’m doing what I can to keep from nodding off. Wish I were home on the couch with some coffee and a book…

It is a beautiful Saturday morning. The sun is shining, the humidity is low, and it’s warm but not HOT. I got to sleep in. I’m feeling Not At All Sick for the first time in over a week. I don’t have to work this weekend. I’m not in the throes of hormonal upheaval. My house is mostly clean. Everything is good. But my mood is kind of gray. Scrolling through my Google Reader, on three separate occasions I teared up over a post. New camera? That is so beautiful! Huxtable memories and a children’s choir – so touching! What. The. Eff. Ugh, hate feeling irrational and crazy.
