Friday Funnies with bonus poll!

1 May

I’d just like you all to know that reading your blogs has never reminded me of something I might blow into a hankie.  Well, almost never.

Enjoy the weekend!

Oh, but first, answer this poll.

Friday Funnies

10 Apr

Because it’s been awhile.  And also because I have nothing to say.  And also because I feel kind of blah.  Or maybe it’s bleh.  Or bluuuuh.

pickles-shabby

I so totally do this.

And a little bonus funny (because of the subject matter).

pickles-snuggie

Ew.

Have a lovely Easter everyone!

Friday Funnies—more cowbell!

My bumming around day didn’t go exactly as planned.  I ended up doing the dishes and some Christmas shopping.  My heart just wasn’t in it, I guess.  So I’m a loser who can’t follow through, after all.

My heart hasn’t been in a lot of things lately.  Perhaps I’ve got some kind of holiday bluesy thing going on.  I don’t know.  But last night I decided I needed to do something about it, so I turned to a tried and true prescription for happiness.  You all know what I’m talking about.

I started with this link that the incredibly thoughtful and awesome Julie gave me.  I cowbellified some Foo with 48% cowbell and 30% Walken.  I tried to post it here, but couldn’t figure out how to do the embedding thing.  Go check it out.  I’d recommend you amp up the Walken a bit.  Thirty percent was a tad on the light side.

Then I did a little youtube browsing, and found this little gem.

 

Then I made some flair for you.  I can be your cowbell hero, baby.  I can clank away the pain.

I also got this e-mail this week:

 

Dear Bythelbs,

We’re writing to confirm your purchase of the following item from West Music Company, Inc.:

1 of Basic Beat 5.75″ Black Cowbell (available to ship by December 2,2008)

Yesssssss!  Chuck came through for me despite his reservations.  I decided if I was going to be a cowbell owner, I needed to know how to play it and play it right.  I found several instructional videos, but this was one of my favorites.

 

 

And finally, a merit badge Mr. T can get excited about.

That was all very therapeutic.  I’m ready to face the day.  Even with all of my children home from school.  What’s up with these non-student days anyway?

Have a great weekend!  Any big plans?

Friday Funnies, my friends

You know, I didn’t start this little blogging venture with the intention of making money.  Which is good.  Because I haven’t.  At all.  That’s not to say it hasn’t been a profitable experience.  I’ve become rich in friends, dear readers.  Rich.  In.  Friends.  Yeah, I’m talking about you, people.  So thank you.

Have an awesome weekend!

(Insert cheesy musical tribute here.)

Friday Funnies—all things Chuck

7 Nov

Mr. T has a new writing assignment for English class—a biography.  When I asked who he’s writing about, I can’t say that I was surprised to hear his answer:  Chuck Norris.  I’m not exactly sure what the criteria is for the subject of this writing assignment, but Mr. T feels confident that Chuck fits the bill.

He’s been walking around spouting Chuck “facts”.

Chuck Norris can kill two stones with one bird.

Chuck Norris can eat just one Lay’s potato chip.

Chuck Norris can slam a revolving door.

When the Bogeyman goes to sleep every night, he checks his closet for Chuck Norris.

And my personal favorite:

Chuck Norris doesn’t read books.  He stares them down until he gets the information he wants.

Last night Mr. T mentioned he had a mini-draft of his report due, which was basically just a page or two showing the information and facts he’s collected so far.  I said, “You’re not including these as the facts, right?”  He looked at me like I was crazy then proceeded to rattle off all kinds of interesting information about Mr. Norris.

Me:  Wow.  Maybe I should have you do a guest post on my blog.

Chuck (my Chuck):  You’ve never asked me to write a guest post.

Me:  Do you know anything about Chuck Norris?

 

Dropping Mr. T off at school this morning.

Me:  Bye, bud.  Have a good day.

Mr. T:  Because of his roundhouse kick, Chuck Norris has to have a license to carry a concealed weapon to legally wear pants in all 50 states.  Bye, Mom.  Love you.

Friday Funnies: special music edition

3 Oct

What earworms do you have wiggling around in your head?  What’s been the most annoying one you’ve ever had?


Speaking of music, there’s this song that I’ve really liked lately that always just kind of makes me happy when I hear it.  I’ve never really paid attention to the lyrics, so I googled them and was surprised to find that they’re really kind of sad.  The song still somehow sounds hopeful and even somewhat cheery to me.

Into the Ocean by Blue October—What do you think?

I’m just a normal boy
That sank when I fell overboard
My ship would leave the country
But I’d rather swim ashore

Without a life vest I’d be stuck again
Wish I was much more masculine
Maybe then I could learn to swim
Like ‘fourteen miles away’

Now floating up and down
I spin, colliding into sound
Like whales beneath me diving down
I’m sinking to the bottom of my
Everything that freaks me out
The lighthouse beam has just run out
I’m cold as cold as cold can be
be

I want to swim away but don’t know how
Sometimes it feels just like I’m falling in the ocean
Let the waves up take me down
Let the hurricane set in motion… yeah
Let the rain of what I feel right now…come down
Let the rain come down

Where is the coastguard
I keep looking each direction
For a spotlight, give me something
I need something for protection
Maybe flotsam junk will do just fine
the jetsam sunk, I’m left behind
I’m treading for my life believe me
(How can I keep up this breathing)

Not knowing how to think
I scream aloud, begin to sink
My legs and arms are broken down
With envy for the solid ground
I’m reaching for the life within me
How can one man stop his ending
I thought of just your face
Relaxed, and floated into space

I want to swim away but don’t know how
Sometimes it feels just like I’m falling in the ocean
Let the waves up take me down
Let the hurricane set in motion… yeah
Let the rain of what I feel right now…come down
Let the rain come down

Now waking to the sun
I calculate what I had done
Like jumping from the bow (yeah)
Just to prove I knew how (yeah)
It’s midnight’s late reminder of
The loss of her, the one I love
My will to quickly end it all
Set front row in my need to fall

Into the ocean, end it all
Into the ocean, end it all
Into the ocean, end it all
into the ocean…end it all

[Zayra]
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)

I want to swim away but don’t know how
Sometimes it feels just like I’m falling in the ocean
Let the waves up take me down
Let the hurricane set in motion (yeah)
Let the rain of what I feel right now…come down
Let the rain come down

Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
In to space
I thought of just your face

Are there any sad songs that cheer you up?  Hmm…I think I’m hearing a whispering of Sir EJ somewhere in the back of my mind.
