#MirthMusicMon – Funny… Ballet?

31 Aug

Poor abused me.

For the past two weeks someone has been beating up on me. I’m talking kicking, punching, even weighing their opinion on what I eat!

Yes, folks. This kid is opinionated.

I ate a nectarine this afternoon and I thought I had a class full of gymnasts in there. Talk about sugar high. For some reason peanuts get this little one kicking around as well.

I referred to him/her as ‘this thing’ Saturday afternoon and instantly felt the hardest kick yet. Already talking back. ;)

.

But, on to the reason for this post:

Mirth and Music Monday! Yay!

This week I found a little something that (unintentionally) continues with the cultured theme started last Monday.

Let’s see what you think. :)

#MirthMusicMon – Classical Doesn’t Mean Boring

25 Aug

I know, I know. I said that there would hopefully be another blog post last week.

But I have a good reason…

I blame my husband.

Ha.

You see, about 3 weeks ago my husband started writing what he thought would be a 3-ish page story. He was wrong. At my last reading he has 105 pages. Now, because we need to make money ASAP (you know, with that whole baby on the way thing), and because this pregnancy seems to have robbed my brain of my usual creative flair, I have thrown myself into editing. Editing his novel in the making, my mother’s inspirational historical romance, and a short story my husband finished several months ago.

To be honest, my mom’s book is at the top of my priorities, seeing as how she asked first. After that is my husband’s short story (titled Wolf Town), then his novel (with the working title of When Justice Howls).

Also on the to do list is a website for his writing and steampunk creations, including an online store. I think this part of the plan scares me the most. Knowing how I prioritize my fear (you know, stupidly) it will probably turn out to be the easiest part.

But enough of my excuses.

On to Mirth and Music Monday!

To begin with we have a classical quartet of lovely ladies… having some sort of one-up contest and ending with one of my favorite songs:

Then I found a silly little something that surprised me:

There you have it. The proof that just because it looks or sounds like classical music that doesn’t necessarily mean it will put you to sleep.

You’re welcome.  :D

#MirthMusicMon – Singing Your Punctuation

17 Aug

Ah, the tail end of summer.

The heat is letting up a little, harvest is well under way, and children are already complaining about the speedy approach of school days. I know, because I was hearing a couple siblings sharing their dread at a restaurant this evening.

I wonder how many parents can’t wait until the kids are no longer under foot all day, every day?

Oh well.

On to the real reason for this post: Mirth and Music Monday!

Something funny and something musical, and today they are both contained in one video.

Here you go:

.

There were tons of Dean Martin Show clips to choose from, but I thought this one would really appeal to writers and teachers alike. Or anyone who loves to watch two men laugh so hard they cry. :)

.

I hope to get another post out some time this week. Hopefully by telling you about this goal it will actually happen. Hopefully.

#MirthMusicMon – Songs of the Farmer

10 Aug

This past week or two it is very obvious that I live in an agricultural area.

Grain is being harvested, straw and hay are being baled, and the onions are getting their pre-harvest attention. There is a ton of dust in the air.

I’m not complaining, though.

Even though I have never participated in the farming process I love to watch the fields change through the year. It makes me happy to see winter wheat sprouting in the early spring and drive past rows of ripening corn in the summer.

That is probably why I love these songs so much.  :)

#MirthMusicMon – Dangerous Green Things

4 Aug

This week I am just going to jump straight into it. I need to get to bed so I’m ready for a drive to the ‘big city’ for my 16 week prenatal checkup. Thankfully my sister (who will be my coach) is doing the driving, so I just have to handle my tummy for another long afternoon away from the house.

.

First off we have a short little video that had me laughing way too hard when my dad showed it to me years ago.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLP4QkflB-o

And since I have recently learned that Godzilla is celebrating his/her/its 70th birthday this year:

#MirthMusicMon – Funny Mom Parodies

27 Jul

This has been an interesting day.

We woke up to a power blip that somehow knocked out internet out. We managed to get it fixed just in time for me to start work on Mirth and Music Monday. Whew!

Also, this has not been a good day, uh, morning sickness wise. On the up side, I don’t think my abs have ever been this solid. :)

Enough about me, it’s time for the fun stuff.

.

This first one is a mom parody of Let It Go (like you aren’t all more than a little tired of that tune), but it’s a good one. Honest.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqqlylre2BU

.

The next one is a mom parody of Footloose (the song, not the entire movie).

I Have Lost My Black Book

23 Jul

One of the worst things that can happen to someone who uses many social media sites has happened to me: I have lost the black book that contains my list of passwords.

I don’t know where and I’m not sure how, but it’s gone.

The last place I remember holding it is when I decided it was too heavy to take with me on the roadtrip in early June. I took it out of the suitcase and… blank.

It will be found. It must. I am just waiting for that forehead smacking moment when I either wonder why I didn’t look in that particular place to begin with or ask myself what I was thinking ever putting it there.

Until that glorious day I will be limited on my range of social media movement.

And believe me, the moment the thing is found I will be making a copy of that info and putting it in my sock drawer!

.

And here’s a little something for a laugh:

#MirthMusicMon – Grumpy Cat and Sukiyaki

14 Jul

Monday, Monday, can’t trust that day… to not sneak up on you!

It’s Mirth and Music Monday, everybody. Time for some giggles and tunes. :)

.

This first one is a video where kids watch a clip of Grumpy Cat and give their thoughts.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIQTNhZyWGE

Some days I do actually tell my husband that I’ll be getting a shovel and digging a hole in the back yard and he can join me when he’s taken care of a certain “problem”. Since we have very clay heavy soil around here he usually tells me to have fun with that and that he’s not going to finish the hole for me. haha!

.

While having nothing to do with a grumpy cat or children I decided to pop in one of my all time favorite oldies.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zpOc9n7dlI

Growing up I thought it was amazing that an American could get that accent so right. Uh-huh. It was only a few weeks ago that I found out that it was sung by a man from Japan. And also that it sat at #1 on America’s charts for two straight weeks in 1963 (I think). Pretty cool. :)

*            *           *

I do have to say that I owe a lot of people apologies for the last couple weeks. I have not been as attentive and on top of things as I should be. I have flaked out on a couple responsibilities and I am truly sorry for the confusion and aggravation that has been inflicted on Emily Witt and ReGi McClain and on you my readers.

This has been a rough couple months on me in many ways, but that should not have interfered with the one day of the week I have steady obligations here.

*           *            *

One exciting thing in the middle of all this misery… or rather the cause of it is something someone who is scheduled to make their first ever appearance some time in mid to late January.

In case that is too vague — I’m pregnant!

Thirteen weeks along and to be honest I am hating nearly every moment of it. Between the nausea, vomiting, food and smell aversions, guarding against the return of oral thrush and a couple other unpleasant pregnancy symptoms I don’t really have mental space to sit around and daydream about how lovely it is to be a mommy in the making. Nope, just over 3 months along and I’m already yelling at the kid “Would you finish growing and get out already?!”

They say every pregnancy is different, but I have to say that if the next one is as miserable as this I really hope we can afford to just hook me up to an iv bag and knock me out for the first half of it.

The sad thing is that I’m not even kidding.

#MirthMusicMon – Sold!

23 Jun

A girlfriend of mine really loved this song and I always found it amusing. Then one day my husband told me that it had a fun music video. Well, that sent me straight to YouTube, of course. I’ve had so much fun every time I’ve watched it I figured it was about time I shared.

Enjoy!  :)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qqa0Fc2kBBY

.

Other than watching tons of fun videos on YouTube this week I haven’t been up to much. Unless you count being sick and miserable. Thankfully I got in to see the doctor today. I’m on a prescription mouth wash for the next 6 days and things should be more or less back to normal.

Thank goodness.

Once again, if you’re the praying kind they would be much appreciated as I’m still only able to hold down liquids at this time. That should change in a couple days, but in the meantime it’s still unpleasant and uncomfortable.
