#MirthMusicMon – Turkey and Snow

24 Nov

It’s time for Mirth and Music Monday! The time of the week when we do our best to get your belly laughs and toe taps in before the rest of the day/week makes you want to kill something.

Thanksgiving is just a few days away. For this household that means Thanksgiving lunch and Thanksgiving dinner. If I had more than just the one real in-law we would have to throw in a Thanksgiving breakfast or midnight snack. However, the food is always good, the company is engaging and the kids are a royal distraction (but when are they not?). I’m one to speak, though, this time next year I’ll be playing merry he-ck trying to keep little fingers out of my own gravy.

Then there’s snow.

Around here we don’t usually see actual snow fall until a couple days before Christmas, and even that is more of a token “Here’s your white Christmas” type thing. The ‘real’ snow doesn’t usually happen until about New Years and immediately gets down to the business of looking less than idyllic.

This year it seems as though we went straight from a lovely indian summer to the depths of winter with barely a week of what we would call fall (or autumn in some circles).

I’m not complaining, though. It wouldn’t do any good.

If you would like to hear some complaining ask me about how this pregnancy is going.

But that’s whole blog post unto its self.  ;)

.

This week I have found 2 music videos by a very ingenious family with the name Holderness. One about Thanksgiving and another about snow. Thus my title. :)

I am so glad my husband can cook. So glad.

How is your fall/autumn going? I know for some of my followers it’s just gearing up for the hottest part of the year where they live. So technically it’s your summer. Right? Of course I have been know to be very, very wrong, so please let me know what this time of year is called for you.

That’s also where you can input your own blog post if you choose to join in the weekly madness.  I can’t promise instant fame and riches, but we could whip up a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough. That’s almost the same, right? :D

Until next time,

Have a Great week!

My computer is being a pain, so I’m just going to get right down to things before it realizes it’s cooperating.

This video has made me laugh all 3 times I have seen it.

Hopefully you will find it humorous as well. :)

#MirthMusicMon – Happy Anniversary to Me!

10 Nov

It’s been two years since I jumped off the cliff of indecision and dove into the sea that is the blogging world.

Two years of a fun, crazy, unpredictable roller coaster ride.

It hasn’t been the easiest thing at times, but I haven’t regretted it.  :)

Thank you, dear reader, for sticking with me as I find out about myself, my writing, and this monumental beast known as Social Media.

*            *            *

For this week’s Mirth and Music Monday I have big cat fails and ZZ Top.

Little did I know when I took a stroll through ZZ Top’s music this afternoon that I would be picking my all time favorite to pair with the overgrown fur balls at a big cat rescue zoo. 

Life is full of surprises.  :D

.

.

Now for ZZ Top to play off the music in the kitty video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_EFdod4YDo

.

Out of curiosity, which is your favorite ZZ Top song?

Had you even heard of the band before today?

Did you click on more of the big cat videos and watch them play in the kiddie pool, or with rolls of toilet paper? lol  If you have the time I highly recommend it.

.

That’s all I’ve got for you today, folks.

#MirthMusicMon – I Have a Cold

3 Nov

Sore throat? Check

Stuffy nose? Check

Foggy head? Check

Feeling run down? Check

Yup, it’s a cold. Tis the season, I guess.

But, that just means I have a different subject for Mirth and Music Monday. :D

(I was thinking of going with another idea, but just couldn’t find a song to go with it. Yet.)

.

For our first selection we have an amusing little number from Sesame Street:

.

Then, just in case that didn’t give you a chuckle, let’s try this one:

Don’t be shy. We don’t bite… often. ;)

#MirthMusicMon – One Good Scare

27 Oct

While touring YouTube this week I came across little videos called Perrysodes. I think they’re taking the Perry the Platypus storylines from Phineas and Ferb episodes, sticking all the little pieces together and releasing them as stand-alone videos. They’re really cute and funny. :)

What do you think of this steampunk one?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6r1ZnAAiqZ0

.

And just because I get a kick out of this song (and it’s Mirth and Music Monday), here’s Baljeet having a fit after being informed that the for fun, summertime, ‘how to rock’ class he took doesn’t actually have a grading system.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oIF34kaV5k

.

Then finally, because this is the last Monday before Halloween, here’s Phineas trying to cure Isabella’s hiccoughs with a scare… or two.

That’s it for me this week.

.

P.S. A friend on mine has requested that I send him baby bump photos, so you may be seeing them soon, too. :)

.

.

Now I get to go deal with the shoe that discovered the existence of cat…leavings…in my driveway. Lots of fun.

I hope your day is going better than mine so far. :)

#MirthMusicMon – Childhood and Parenting = funny?

20 Oct

Monday?

Already?

I remember Saturday, a day full of sugar and laughing, and saying thank you as I opened baby shower gifts.

Sunday was something of a blur that lasted like five minutes. I had a nap… I think.

Now all of a sudden it’s Monday.

Oh, well.

Let’s make the best of it by playing with Mirth and Music Monday!  :)

This week I found some comedy about the realities of childhood, and then some songs about parenting. Let’s see which experience makes us laugh harder.

First is childhood. At least it’s in chronological order, right?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TO6TO1Qdlag

.

I don’t know what it was called, but I remember after I burned a knee once one of my parents sprayed some stuff on it and I kid you not it hurt almost as much as the original burning sensation. I think we had to wash it off to make me stop making horrible noises. Youch.

And yes, I did attempt to play on a couple of playgrounds while we were living in Texas. One word: Don’t. I don’t know what brainiac decided to use little black rocks as the safety stuff at the bottom of a particular playground in Corpus Cristi, but it was impossible to even get to the slide.

.

Then we come to parenthood, in the form of songs. Let’s see what you think of these new versions of popular songs.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67vDQ3l8ghI

.

I’m not there yet, but I could see myself at least humming a couple of these in a few years. lol

.

What do you think? Did those paddle ball things drive you nuts every Christmas (and then the elastic string would break just as you started getting on a roll)?

Have you sung the “with or without you” song?

I am so looking forward to some horror stories, here. :D

#MirthMusicMon – A Monkey and The Monkees

13 Oct

Want to hear the inspiration for this week’s Mirth and Music Monday post?

Too bad. I’m going to tell you anyway. ;)

So while out for coffee with a friend Sunday afternoon, we discovered that he had never heard of the Trunk Monkey commercials. Of course I had to pull out my phone and bring up a compilation video. Then giggle along as he laughed himself nearly out of his chair.

Ah, yes. Mission accomplished. :D

Then I got to thinking, this baby is a girl. I want a Trunk Monkey!

More specifically, I want this Trunk Monkey:

.

And while we’re on the subject of monkeys, why not jump over to The Monkees?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUzs5dlLrm0

.

That’s it for me today, folks.

#MirthMusicMon – Get Me Outta Here!

6 Oct

You need a laugh.

Why not check out a  Mirth and Music Monday post? :)

.

First up is a playful little number by Larry Verne, titled Mr. Custer. I can totally visualize a few soldiers scratching their heads thinking, “Maybe this wasn’t such a good idea, Mr. Leader Man.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8z9ntoTwQfc

.

And because I just got back from a ladies retreat, here’s Allan Sherman singing Camp Granada:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jjiWS__Mp0

I actually had a wonderful time at the campground where they held the retreat. Especially the build-your-own ice cream sundae bar they had the last night we were there.

I only had one scoop. I promise.  :D

#MirthMusicMon – A Kitten and Fever

29 Sep

It’s that day of the week again.

The one where a small group of bloggers work toward the mutual goal of making you laugh and then listen to some music.

That’s right, Mirth and Music Monday.  :D

.

This week I came across a video that, yes, is an ad for cat food, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t funny.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4Sn91t1V4g

.

Totally unrelated in any context is a song I really like:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGb5IweiYG8

Sometimes simplicity is the best. :)

#MirthMusicMon – Call It Steampunk

21 Sep

While wandering the wonderful world that is YouTube looking for a video for this week’s Mirth and Music Monday I came across this fascinating little ditty:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFCuE5rHbPA

.

I love that not only does he poke fun at what is wrong with so many attempts at steampunk he takes time to actually explain what steampunk is so it’s easier to get it right.

Here’s the link to his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/Pikedevant

I like the steampunk world. One day I hope to have several nice, authentic looking, late 1800’s dresses to accessorize to my heart’s content. Until then I will continue to bask in the fun that is a giant game of what-if.

.

Speaking of if…
