Inevitably…this always follows…

As a parent, I can’t condone it, but the my son thinks it’s pretty funny. (He’s seen worse with his daddy so don’t send any nasty comments my way) He’s 12 and he can find it himself anyway. I’ve already told him to turn it off, like, 5 times. That I know of. Gotta love that YouTube!

Again I apologize for the language. It’s BAD.  Not for the little ones. Everyone else… enjoy the ride!

Today is the first day of Christmas in my world

December 5, 2009 at 10:49 am (Video) (, , , , , , , )

UPDATE 12/17/09: I am finally done with this semester of school! And I am registered for January. Stress, money, stress, books, stress, start studying NOW for next semester(that’s basically what they told us today), stress…my point is that I obviously wrote this in the throes of desperation for panicked finals and four tests in a row. I am appalled at all my bad grammar and weird use of words (melee’ ?? WTF? I don’t even remember typing that word!) I never say it out loud! So strange. But I’m leaving it. For fun I thought you could read it and tell me how many errors I made! Best, most creative slap down gets a shout out and…I don’t know…something. Maybe a free vital sign check-up?!? It’s hard to give stuff away when I am here and you are wherever you are! Ok…go!

If you are like me, and I bet most of you are these days…you have divorced parents. And you have been traveling to various families for most of the holidays for most of your childhood. And then YOU got married, had kids, and got divorced, and now you have two, three, four, five….etc…MORE families to travel too during the holidays. And even if you managed to get out of a few visits in the melee’ these days, your kids haven’t. Their just starting the roller coaster of holiday family dinners and fun that defines our holiday memories and ideas. Personally, for me, my dream is to have enough money to leave Chicago the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and not come back until after New Years, to a country that doesn’t celebrate the holidays. Or at least one that has a beach and an ocean as its primary geological features. My last thoughts were the Maldive islands. Any and all are welcome to come with me. I’ll even pay. Tahiti is my second choice. Just imagine yourself in the South Pacific, water so clear you can see right to the bottom, warm breeze and temperate weather, and you are in your own bungalow high above the water, relaxing on the deck with a steaming cup of exotic coffee, planning a day that has nothing to do with snow or sweaters or candy or decorations or presents or giant dinners of ham and turkey and pie….and all your family is there with you, happy and getting along, tan and healthy and relaxed…it’s a lottery dream. Trust me, I know. So today starts Christmas with my dad’s side of the family. It’s fun, actually, but the dream remains….

Merry Christmas Everybody!

Since Stevie said it was here…

I better post a video that we think is funny and everybody else does too. And if you have never seen this commercial, then I say, “WTF?? You may declare yourself a better person than I, because you obviously NEVER watch TV. Congratulations on having a life!” I give you, The Geico Pothole, and junk….

New York Coffee Cup. Goodfellas. “…get to live the rest of my life like a schnook.”

September 28, 2009 at 3:07 pm (Find The NY Coffee Cup, Movies) (, , , , , , , )

Sunday night movie time! AMC, thank you! I haven’t seen it in so long and there it was. This is a fine, fine, addition to my little scavenger hunt! Check it out at the 9:12 mark.

I love this movie even though it’s long. Ray Liotta. Joe Pesci. The kids were watching and JP is so good onscreen that every time he came on the kids were nervous about who he was going to kill next. Uncomfortable tension that really projects. They went to bed so they didn’t get to hear my fav line, but I recreated it for you. Say it like he would say it.

Then watch this, 4:55 mark:

“And now it’s all over.”

“And that’s the hardest part. Today everything is different; There’s no action…have to wait around like everyone else. Can’t even get decent food…I’m an average nobody…”

NY Coffee Cup and 30 Rock Rocks!

September 11, 2009 at 5:26 pm (Celebrity, Find The NY Coffee Cup, TV Shows, Video) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

It’s got some of my favorite things. Comedy. Tina Fey. Tracy Morgan. Hilarious one-liners and slapstick. The New York Coffee Cup–of course. It’s filmed in New York. It’s about New York. Twenty minute lengths! Perfect! I know I’m a little late to the 30 Rock game, but I am busy. This video is a compilation of Liz Lemon moments from Season 1. The cup is actually in the clips. But for you die hard anals like myself (not really worded well there) so far the cup is in: Season 1, Episodes 4, 6 and 8. We are only up to episode 12 of the first season, so that’s all I got. But. I love how the cup debuts in episode 4. Two of them crushed on the ground at Yankee Stadium with rats walking all around them. Lovely.

NOTE: If you can’t just watch it, which you might not, if you click the You-Tube Link it works fine. Don’t want to infringe on rights and all….NYCC is at the 1:30 mark.

Stealing…Borrowing…Copying…Pasting…D-Listed says it’s for real and I trust his research.

July 28, 2009 at 1:19 pm (Celebrity, Lifted, Unusual, Video) (, , , , , , , , )

Copied the You Tube Video off You Tube.

Copied/Pasted D-Listed Content because it’s way funnier than anything I would have come up with. Credit: Michael K. Check out the site (Adult Content)

His words:

Got an ass so stanky that it makes flies commit mass suicide (don’t look at me)? Got a pair of feet so rank that all your socks disappear from your drawer in the middle of the night? Got a coochie so rancid that the Department of Sanitation declared it a toxic waste zone (Paris, this one goes out to you)?

If you answered yes to one of those questions and are allergic to water and soap, this product is for you! It’s called the Aspray and it’s like Fabreeze for your bits! Apparently, this is a real-life product created by someone named Doc Bottoms (which is also one of Tommy Girl’s pet names).

My words:

I’ll just leave it at that and let the commercial speak for me… I’m thinking Christmas presents for the whole family!?!?!

Huh. You Tube has everything. Video of a song I have on my “running” playlist. Didn’t know.

Sorry. I’m a little late to the whole Pixie’s thing…

Day Quote. Or, “The Case Of The Man Who Was So Stressed Out That He Thought He Lost His Keys And Ended Up Having A Heart Attack.”

July 27, 2009 at 6:12 pm (Day Quote, Movies, Video) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

“Zero Effect” Special Edition

I always say that the essence of my work relies fundamentally on two basic principles: objectivity and observation, or “the two obs” as I call them. My work relies on my ability to remain absolutely, purely objective, detached. I have mastered the fine art of detachment. And while it comes at some cost, this supreme objectivity is what makes me, I dare say, the greatest observer the world has ever known.

—Daryl Zero

I can’t possibly overstate the importance of good research. Everyone goes through life dropping crumbs. If you can recognize the crumbs, you can trace a path all the way back from your death certificate to the dinner and a movie that resulted in you in the first place. But research is an art, not a science, because anyone who knows what they’re doing can find the crumbs, the wheres, whats, and whos. The art is in the whys: the ability to read between the crumbs, not to mix metaphors.

—Daryl Zero

Now, a few words on looking for things. When you go looking for something specific, your chances of finding it are very bad. Because of all the things in the world, you’re only looking for one of them. When you go looking for anything at all, your chances of finding it are very good. Because of all the things in the world, you’re sure to find some of them.

—Daryl Zero

A few words here about following people. People know they’re being followed when they turn around and see someone following them. They can’t tell they’re being followed if you get there first.

—Daryl Zero

And now for a little bit of dialogue:

Steve Arlo:
There aren’t evil guys and innocent guys. It’s just… It’s just… It’s just a bunch of guys.

Daryl Zero:
I did find one other thing of interest, though.

Steve Arlo:
Holy shit, those are the keys. You found the gold Swiss Army knife.

Daryl Zero:
I know.

Steve Arlo:
And this is the safe deposit box key. Where’d you find them?

Daryl Zero:
They were in the sofa, under the cushion.

Steve Arlo:
What?

Daryl Zero:
They were stuck in the couch in his office.

Steve Arlo:
Was he hiding them there? Is that possible?

Daryl Zero:
Not possible. That’s where they fell out of his pocket, over a year ago.

Steve Arlo:
So… what do you make of this?

Daryl Zero:
I think that just as I feared, Ms. Sullivan doesn’t know a thing about these keys.

Steve Arlo:
Wait–the keys are a coincidence?

Daryl Zero:
Yes.

Steve Arlo:
That’s–confusing.

Daryl Zero:
Yep.

Steve Arlo:
Doesn’t seem like a good thing.

Daryl Zero:
Sure it is. It’s good because the man has been looking for his keys for a year. And I’ve found them.

And finally, wrapping up this special edition Day Quote Segment:

After investigating her, I found myself in better shape than ever before in my life. To me, she will always be a singular unforgettable event, the only time I ever took leave of my objectivity. Perhaps the most able blackmailer of her time, she was at once the worthiest opponent and the greatest ally, and the only woman I have ever… the only woman, period. And though I never would’ve anticipated it, in the end she did for me what I have done for so many: help solve a problem, first by observation, then by careful intervention – in other words, the Zero Effect.

—Daryl Zero

Now go see the movie!

And we are back…it’s Wednesday afternoon, pre-running post…More Warrior, with updates!

July 22, 2009 at 2:00 pm (Day to Day, Exercise, Pictures, Video, Warrior Dash) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

As I was flipping thru the internet I noticed that the Helmet Cam video is on You Tube now! Thank goodness! I can’t get the other formats to work or convert or whatever people do to make things show up here. So I am posting that here. It’s long, but it gives a really good playback of what we were doing. Makes you wish you were there huh??

I went to my sister’s yesterday to babysit for her and her house full of children, including my own, because this year her birthday NEVER ends!

The hubby went and bought her tickets! Awwww….

It was a secret, she didn’t know she was going to the SOX game AND sitting behind the dugout–so close to the players she could feel their sweat (Eeeww for me, Yay! for her). She’s kind of a fanatic. At any rate, they took, like, 200 pictures of players I couldn’t identify on threat of death if they were standing right in front of me with their jerseys on, much less standing at home plate facing the other way swinging a bat! But whatever…she had a good time. If she sends me any of her favorite pictures I can add them here as kind of a Sox player-sister-tribute thing. So look for that later too!

Now that’s it. Happy Birthday. It’s over! Sheesh…

Also, they got the pictures back from the Mud-Cam and some are really good! Some are really bad too. Two in particular have me going over the Wall with my ass looking like I put two beach balls in my pants! It’s funny but not TOO funny. I confiscated the actual prints and they are currently residing in my fridge and food cabinets with a serious note to myself asking if I REALLY want to eat anything inside these areas of the house?? Maybe I should go have a big glass of water, run around the block, and reconsider eating any kind of solid food for the next few weeks. But I’m waiting for the digital to show up in my e-mail so I can post, so we’ll see if those two make it to daylight…maybe if I get a few subscribers??? Hint, hint. (Pathetic grab for attention!)

How long can I drag out this Warrior Dash to get more hits for my site? At least a few more days!

We have to go hit the trail now. Third day of the new fitness regiment. Mason doesn’t want to–he’s still sore, and Stevie doesn’t really get it yet…so this should be fun! Mommy has to be the bad guy. Exercise is good! In a month or so they’ll thank me!

I will post later with any new pics and such. Stay active!

Find the New York Coffee Cup. The Thomas Crown Affair

July 20, 2009 at 5:57 pm (Find The NY Coffee Cup, Movies, Video) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

Well aren’t we all lucky today?? Haven’t found a penny on the street in weeks, but I’m just finding those NY Coffee Cups!

And finding them in movies I’ve never even seen!

And then, finding the clips from those movies on You Tube!

And, strangely enough, The Thomas Crown Affair has Denis Leary in it, who I just had a dream about the other night! Seriously.

It was Friday night into Saturday. I won’t bore you with all the details but it was dream, dream, dream… and… kissing Denis Leary! I don’t remember what the rest of the dream had in it, but in the end it was me kissing Denis Leary. And he was kissing me back!

Anyway, here’s the clip from the movie. I just happened to catch this exact part while it was on cable the other day. There’s no sound for whatever reason, but the cup makes it appearance at the 1:30 mark. It may be in more parts of the movie, but I won’t know until Netflix sends it on over for me to see full length. Until then…Enjoy!

And in a related video…here is Denis Leary doing some comedy about…Coffee! Didn’t know this was out there either. It’s kind of old and it’s WAY full of SWEAR WORDS. Curse words, obscenities, whatever…NOT FOR THE KIDDIES! Otherwise…
