Bueno, no. Vamos.” I loved this! And I think the kid really thinks he won!

I’ve had this conversation myself (from both sides, I am embarrassed to admit, at some time or another!)… It’s kind of long, but hilarious! “That crap is white water!” ¡Cómo nos engañamos!

These two grannies are super cute, and I especially love how they giggle like little kids. Makes me grin and miss my own grandma, she would have gotten a kick out of this.

Donald Duck meets Glenn Beck

November 10, 2010

I thought this was quite funny, and brilliantly done–I watched it twice! Especially chuckle-worthy is the premise of the video’s context alongside the fact that Glenn Beck reportedly earned 32 million dollars last year. Yep, $32,000,000.00. “Do you feel like you’re working harder and harder these days just to stay financially afloat while fat cats are getting richer and richer? Well, it’s not just a feeling, and you’re not alone…” Heh.

The readers’ comments on the blog post where I found the video are also interesting and insightful. For example, did you know that Glenn Beck is a year younger than Johnny Depp?

Ugh. And, having lived there, I’m 100% sure that this is a true message to the TV station. Most prevalent attitude I observed during the decades I lived there? “I’ve got mine, so screw you.” Comments from YouTube users were pretty funny…

Hold out to the end: Sadly, he may be right…

And when he’s laughing because his big brother is making fart noises, somehow it seems even funnier!

I have no idea what the backstory is for this video, and yes-it’s nearly nine minutes long. However, it’s surprisingly satisfying! The beginning is a surprise, and the last 10 seconds are the BEST.

If you don’t want hubby to cheat, Pat recommends “making yourself as attractive as possible” and not to “start hassling him.”

Gross. Hard to believe this prehistoric-minded program is still broadcasting. And even scarier to consider that this guy’s net worth is estimated to be between $200 million and a $1 billion dollars.

mi ex-gordito esta por llegar de Colombia – el avion ya va pasando Nebraska! 😀

I am thrilled to find this, purportedly from Iceland – Hysterical stuff!

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!

Who is Pope Benedict’s father?
A. Montgomery Burns
B. Simon Bar Sinister
C. The Emperor from “Star Wars.”

Uncanny family resemblance. Thank you, Half Wisdom, Half Wit!

No kicking penguins!

I think this is one of the best stories I’ve read all year. Here’s the summary: Click on the photo to read more!

Last week, my dad had a heart attack and had emergency quadruple bypass surgery. It was a stressful week even though I’m far away, or maybe especially because of that-it was a challenge to find information by phone and a larger challenge to find a way to communicate with my dad regarding the importance of complying with the rules and recommendations the doctors have given him: no smoking, no tacos from Jack-in-the-Box, get some exercise, eat your vegetables, etc. At some point he mentioned that the doctors had told him he couldn’t have any sugar in his coffee (he’s a two-sugars guy). This seemed unusual for a cardiac health-related diet, so I pressed him for details.

He replied, “Those doctors told me I was a diabetic! And I told them, ‘I ain’t never been no diabetic!’ I can have all the sugar in my coffee I want! They don’t know what they are talking about!

Oh, you mean those same doctors that just saved your life? They don’t know what they’re talking about? Oy.

Worse still, my dad commented later, “Some of the doctors are worried about me living alone, that I’ll be by myself when I get home from the hospital. But I told them, I’m not gonna be by myself–Jacob will be there.”

Folks, Jacob is his 6-month old grandson. [sigh…]

Lake Chelan weekend

February 22, 2010

We had a lovely weekend! The weather was perfect…

We saw deer…

And bighorn sheep…

Enjoyed some treats…

And relaxed here…

Powerful safe-driving PSA

February 14, 2010

This has been a hard week…intense work schedule, some setbacks in the gym, F’s niece was hospitalized with dengue hemorrhagic fever (better now, thanks!), Olympics tragedy, a guy hacking a baby to death in Vegas with an axe. I just feel raw…
So I can’t say if that is the reason this ad triggered such an emotional response from me or if it’s just that powerful of a visual message, but I thought it was pretty heavy. What’s your take?

I hadn’t seen this before, but evidently this campaign exhorts New Year’s revelers: “Don’t drop the ball.” Reportedly, sales of emergency contraception double on the first day of the year, and this public service campaign encourages partiers to make a “back-up” birth control plan. They sensibly reason, “If you can accidentally text your grandmother on New Year’s Eve, what else can go wrong?”

I adore the grandmas in the video – they are fabulous as they read text-speak out loud!! Which one is your favorite?

From Portland, from the 80s. Not very long ago, after all…I appreciated the compassion suggested here (“comfort the dying”) in spite of the abject terror that folks in this situation would surely be feeling.

My grannies were never this spunky!

Two grannies use a green screen to enjoy an outing at an amusement park, and we ALL benefit. Especially from the sound effects. Love!
