Verano

May 11, 2011

Saw this on someone’s FB page today, and it sounds like an excellent plan to me! The guys never cry about this stuff, do they?

“VERANO. Expirado el plazo de la “operación bikini” arrancamos con la “operación burkini”, mucho más asequible.”

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…

Yes, folks, it’s that time of year again! As reported last year and the year before, the return of spring in Seattle brings the return of my furry, football-shaped friend: the mountain beaver. Ain’t he sweet?

He’s out a little earlier than usual this year, and seems to have taken up residence farther up the hill behind our house. Unless that’s some other mountain beaver, of course. I didn’t catch his name.

After yesterday’s gruesome fowl-related post, today I thought it would be nice to share something more uplifting in relation to our feathered friends. La Billi shared this with me via email today. What a fun story!

I waited around in the Department of Licensing office all afternoon, and when I finally got up to the counter, they told me that I couldn’t carry out any business on the cars since they are in Fernando’s name. This video was the perfect crankiness antidote.

O sea, Rodolfo Burgos. Oye, de verdad canta idéntico, ¡es increíble!

To my grand delight, I saw a video of the REAL Shakira meeting Rodolfo/”Shakiro” – and two things struck me.

1. Shakira seems so normal and nice!

2. Wait, Shakira’s only like 5 feet tall, that guy looks teeny next to her!

Or, for the English-only crowd, “I’ll erase you (unfriend you) from Facebook.”

Me parto de la risaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!

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.

Silent Monks Sing Hallelujah

December 23, 2010

Been MIA around here these days – but don’t fret. All is well, just super-busy! This video cracked me up, and in the spirit of the season, I share it here. Enjoy!

Read about our cooking group’s annual business meeting at William’s house! Click through to our KTC blog.

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!!

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.

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?
