Weekend Diversions: Just Dance, Free Fonts, Free Movies, "Healthy" Sodas & Springing Forward

Last week I showed you an adorable video of John Mayer and Elmo talking about nothing cute. Not long after Ange @ Red Knows How sent me a link to the following video with combines John Mayer with another one of my favorite people, Ellen Degeneres.

I’m officially a John Mayer funny video junkie so if you come across one you think I’ll like, please comment to let me know or send me an email at mommablogsalot (at) gmail (dot) com.

Have you ever wanted to make your own font but had no idea how to go about it? Yourfonts.com is a free online font generator that lets you create your own fonts in minutes. You’ll print a sheet that you will fill in with your handwriting, then scan it in and within 15 minutes you’ll have your very own font that you can use on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. You can make as many fonts as you want!

Speaking of free stuff, RedBox is offering a coupon code for a free movie every Wednesday in March. Just visit their blog, RedBlog on Wednesdays for the code. The blog itself is pretty cool, too, with articles about upcoming movies, DVD reviews, behind the scenes info and other  fun things for any movie fan. I added it to my RSS feed and have been having a lot of fun perusing their archives. Definitely a great read!

Have you heard about the new Pepsi Natural (or maybe seen it in a store)? Sold in glass bottles for the slightly exorbitant price of $4.69 for a four pack of 12 oz. glass bottles, they do look very pretty and might intrigue people with the information that these versions of Pepsi contain no high fructose corn syrups and are sweetened with plain old sugar (42 grams of sugar I might add!). Still I’m not sure I’d spend that much for something that, at the end of the day, is still soda and still not great for you. How about you? Would you spend $12.50 per gallon (regular pepsi runs for $3.69 per gallon just to compare) for “natural” pepsi? For more great information about the new Pepsi Natural, check out keacher.com for a great review.

  1. I’ve been reading but not responding lately because I’m lazy.
    That is such a funny clip with John Mayer and Ellen! She’s so silly always!
    I thought that if you bought Coke or Pepsi over Jewish Holy days it was made with sugar and not HFCS?? I’m not positive, but at least they used to do something different with the caps to indicate that they were kosher.

  2. That is kind of pricey for some soda… dang! Only glass bottles too, eh? I haven’t seen them in our local stores, but I have been trying to stay away from soda too. I’d be interested in trying it though.

  3. Please don’t hate me? But it’s daylight saving time. No “s” in saving. Well, one “s” in saving. You know what I mean. One of my pet peeves.

  5. The font building thing is so cool! I can’t wait to see what my font will look like. And I just know Cay’s going to want her own font.
