Sometimes I see a video online that is so fantastic that I just have to share. This parody of the current hit song, Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen is both clever and awesome. It makes me want to say Allons-y and wear old Converse sneakers, so really, it’s pretty great, right? And also, thank goodness there are other people in this crazy universe that get as unreasonably obsessed about television as I do.

I found this video at Anglophenia, a blog that any Who-vian needs to know about, btw.

And no, you aren’t seeing double. This was cross posted at Jen’s personal blog.

In My Opinion: April 22

This week’s questions for the In My Opinion video meme are:

  1. One of mom’s traits I admired is/was …
  2. I remember getting into trouble with my parents on this occasion.
  3. Are you more of a rule keeper, or a rule breaker? Why?

And here is my video response:

Your turn.

Weekend Diversions: math that isn’t math, the telephone game minus the telephone & a fake apology

This weekend’s diversions are all about things that aren’t exactly what the seem, because they are actually better. Last things first, Jen posted this awesome video on her blog and I just had to share it here. Watch as Portia De Rossi apologizes for marrying Ellen…

So next I thought we’d have some fun with math, or rather the New Math. Basically it’s like the best kind of math ever because it’s funny AND you’ll understand it. Don’t believe me? Check out some of these equations and tell me if it doesn’t all add up to you…

Alright. I saved the best for last – this diversion comes courtesy of Jean and has been probably the best part of my entire week – and my husband’s week, too, because after I got sufficiently addicted, I got him hooked, too. It’s called Broken Picture Telephone and it’s awesome. I’m guessing you guys have played that Telephone game in school or something where someone says something to someone else, etc. etc. and by the time you get to the end the message is completely changed? Yeah this is like that except with pictures and it’s hysterical. I’ll show you a quick example and then you have to go try it for yourself, kay?

Monday Morning: Oh The Laziness Of Me

Welcome to the August 18th edition of Monday Morning by the formidable Karen of Write From Karen. You can expect to learn the fascinating secret revelations to such scintillating topics as: procrastination and me, a match made in heaven? ; just how clean is clean jen’s home ; unbelievable mad lib fun ; and just how late can a tired wife sleep? I know inquiring minds want to know, so let’s get to it!

August 18th Questions:

1. You have a huge final project that is due in six weeks. When will you actually begin it? In other words, are you the sort of person who gets things done right away, or do you wait until the last minute? Why is this?

I will start it like that night, but then get all cocky about my abilities and somehow blow it off until at least a week before it’s due, then scramble and embark in lots of late nights or one VERY late night and them grumble and mutter to myself a lot. But I’ll still do it remarkably well, cause I rock. Why? Because I thrive on deadlines and unknown levels of stress.

2. How often do you clean your house? (Be honest!) Do you think you’re a good housekeeper? Does your significant other think you’re a good housekeeper? Does your significant other ever thank you for cleaning house? No one likes to clean, but what is the one thing you don’t mind cleaning?

I do varying levels of cleaning on varying levels of time. On a daily basis I do the basics- dishes, picking up toys, organizing random things. Once a week I do laundry. Once in a blue moon I vacuum, mop or do a big overhaul of some kind. Anything I haven’t mentioned, I hope my husband is doing or that it doesn’t matter much. I’m a terrible housekeeper in most eyes I’d imagine, but we do fine. I think everything at least LOOKS clean… My husband never really complains so I must be doing okay. One chore I don’t mind doing – the laundry really as long as my son isn’t hanging by my ankles while I do it.

3. Fill in the blank: I can’t believe you all haven’t commented about the Shoop by Salt’n’Peppa video that I posted on my blog recently! Now tell us the story behind this sentence (WHY did you fill it in the way you did?)

Um because the video was awesome and everyone should think so! (total cop out, I had NOTHING clever to say for this one!)

4. Be honest, how many times do you hit the snooze button? What time do you get up during week days? What time do you typically get up on the weekends? Are you a good sleeper? If so, why? If not, why not?

(as stated on twitter this morning) i don’t use an alarm clock – just an annoying persistent husband. i’m up between 6:30-7:30 usually depending on the day…
