Watch it wiggle

May 1, 2011

Remember those Jello commercials from way back in the day, with that memorable little song: “Watch it wiggle, see it jiggle, cool and fruity, Jello brand gelatin…?”

Today is Seattle’s second spring-like sunny day this year. As such, it required poking around to see what less-than-winter-weight clothing choices I could find in my closet. I doggedly tried on dozens of items which had been in our “summer closet” for the last 18 months or so. Afterwards, suffice it to say that my thoughts were filled with Jello.

My outlook brightened considerably, however, when I ran across this video of Jello cubes bouncing in slow motion (Thanks, @Foodista!). After all, if my jiggly belly could somehow manage to look half as graceful and mesmerizing as it bounces around as these shimmering Jello cubes do, I have no reason to view it with such disappointment, do I? I wonder if painting it a rich shade of burgundy would help…

Gratitude

April 29, 2011

Take 90 seconds and consider how your words shape your world.  We can all use a reminder to be compassionate and to cultivate gratitude.

Today’s cute

January 26, 2011

I found this the other day via Wimp.com – I posted a related video in May/2009, but this one is even funnier. Why, you ask? Because this one has monkeys! It even has a dentist monkey. You’re welcome.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Stumbled across this totally random video of hand supermodel Ellen Sirot from a couple of years ago. She’s crazy. Or a serial killer. Or a mastermind of planning serial killings, more likely, since she can’t actually use her hands. Is it just me, or is the entire interview just an extra-supersize serving of creepy?

This is a radio ad for a local insurance company, Pemco, that profiles local “types” found in the Pacific Northwest. The spot about First Snowflake Freakout Lady makes me grin each and every time I hear it.

Don’t you understand? I LIVE ON A HILL!!

T-Mobile Welcome Back

November 10, 2010

This has been flying all over the interwebz for days, but it makes me grin each and every time. And the sheer celebratory energy in all those harmonized voices makes me tear up, too. Well, only a little.

Bonus: Reactions from the public. I want to be an International Flight-Greeter! Think they are hiring at Sea-Tac?

Tee-hee! Welcome to the future, ladies! Here’s to those “9 layers” of our bodies’ largest organ–and the marbles!

I saw this today on Amazon while I was searching for motion-sensing lights for my dark and curvy driveway. Check out the blurb:Even better are the product photos:

For her: Green light means "OK to sit, toots!"

For him: Red, with a target. This apparently means, "Good luck hitting the bulls-eye at 4am, buddy!"

I swear, if I could make up stuff like this, I’m sure I’d find a way to leverage it into being a gazillionnaire or something. I’d never heard of a “frontal wedgie” (AKA cameltoe) until today.

If you ladies want to avoid the shame of the dreaded “frontal wedgie,” you’re in luck! You can purchase the solution. In fact, you can purchase AT LEAST TWO KINDS of solutions! Behold ye Camelflage, and CamelAmmo…

Camelflage panties are described on their website like this: “These aren’t your ordinary panty, they were specifically designed to smooth out your feminine parts under tight clothing.” BONUS: They include a “Before and After” section on the site, including the most hideously-photoshopped “After” photo ever! The lady portrayed there is SO lady-like, it appears she’s suddenly wearing a skirt. Or something that isn’t pants.

The second product has evidently undergone a name change or makeover recently, as the URL http://www.CamelAmmo.com redirects immediately to a much more insipidly-named website, “Bye Bye Lines.” There, women everywhere are exhorted to put their “best front forward” and to bid “farewell to frontal wedgies.” BONUS: This product is doctor-endorsed!

Here’s the scoop from Dr. Gina Gora, MD, PLLC, ABFM: “Medical research has found that wearing tight pants that ride up in the front can contribute to the frequency of UTIs leading to bladder infections and yeast infections. By using Bye Bye Lines family of products women can reduce these occurrences while feeling confident about their appearance and health.”

I would have just recommended not buying your clothes quite so tight. Also, for my fellow grammar nerds, please note that I’ve quoted Dr. Gora exactly – see image below.

WTF of the day#2

June 17, 2010

Holy crap, I was premature in posting the toothpaste video, because I hadn’t seen this yet. It appears that this is actually based on a national report, but I’ve never heard of this ridiculous notion, or heard anyone say they thought this was true. Have you? WTF?!?!

I guess there’s a website.

WTF of the day

June 17, 2010

I feel filthy even posting this–it has so much wrong with it that I don’t even know where to begin. But I do know it just makes me feel alternately sad and pissed. This could be the best toothpaste ever, but I’d never purchase it because of the company’s advertising. Ugh.

Seriously?

Be sure to stick it out until the end where you learn about the tiny blender that they thrown in to help you scramble your eggs BEFORE cracking them open
(and no, I’m not kidding).

Click on the photo to see this absurd infomercial (I didn’t want to leave it embedded here because it “autoplays” when you get there – FYI!):

You can order your own EZ Cracker here.

Do the Meer-kute!

I can’t wait to go see these guys once F returns! ¡Ojo! Earworm alert – the song is totally catchy!

WOW! Sir Mix-a-Lot. Buffy. Erik Estrada (He has Evo’s hair, woot!). The HULK!!! And a catchy parody tune. I feel suddenly blessed to have enjoyed pop culture of the 70s and 80s. Woo!

via AdFreak

Why I can’t belong to these guys instead of my actual family? I wish we had Wimpy’s in Seattle-I would eat there all the time just based on this ad. I especially love the girlie with the glasses!

Fab montage of “problems” which infomercials strive to solve for us first-worlders.

Armpit hairs and talking tigers: here’s another one for your enjoyment…

I can’t stop laughing between the incredulous “Really?” in “Chicken-ese” and the fabulous glam rock guitar solo…

Do NOT miss this! I’m going to go watch it again now…

via AdFreak

Buenísimooooooooo!

And I can’t be 100% sure, but it appears that this product really exists.

“Levelus is a fresh scent to highlight your love of life and self-confidence. The fragrance opens with a bright chord: Calabriane bergamot, rosemary and clementine oil. The optimistic wood notes of birch, cedar and vetiver are balanced with gentle iris root and cardamom.

The bottle is designed for an emotional, strong and self-confident man who doesn’t waste his time.

For frequent use, there are replacement perfume containers. Levelus comes in 20, 40 and 60 mL bottles.”
