#MirthMusicMon – Swan Princess Fun

30 Nov

Ah, Monday, and the first day of December at that. I notice the snow has arrived on WordPress blogs. Fun. Just in time for my first Mirth and Music Monday post after turkey day.

I hope you all had a fun and filling Thanksgiving. I certainly did. Sat down to two Thanksgiving feasts Thursday afternoon. We got sent home from the second dinner with a big bag of leftovers and there were so many other desserts we still had half an apple crisp left. So the food debauchery continued through the weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€

.

I have been seeing the meme for this everywhere. That just made me want to watch the scene.

.

And here is a funny song from the same movie:

.

It’s so funny when they’re told to liven things up and the rabbit roars. “Not you Wesley, you’re a rabbit for heaven’s sake.” HAhaha! Love it.

.

Well, that’s it for me this Mirth and Music Monday. If you would like to see who else has participated today click HERE. That’s also where you will want to go if you decide to play along with us so you can add your blog post to the list. ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a Great week!

#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!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

.

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.

Something Cute for May the 4th (be with you)

4 May

I laughed so hard when I saw this commercial for the first time. It still ranks as one of my favorites.

It’s just so cute! And so Star Wars. ๐Ÿ™‚

I found this one just a few minutes ago and laughed my backside off. (p.s. this is totally why I should never be allowed to have any type of super power)

Have a Great Day

And May the 4th be with you!

MMM… Computers!

7 Apr

It’s Monday!

And you know what that means. It’s time for Mirth and Music Monday.

For your entertainment (and for a couple giggles on the hardest day of the week) I have scoured YouTube looking for something that would tickle your funny bone.

Here it is:

.

Also, to sooth the savage beast (stress) I have combed through countless songs and musicals to find this :

House of the Rising Sun done completely with electronics.

If you liked this post, or if you hated it but are willing to give the concept another try, head on over to ReGi McClain’s blog. She’s the creator of this Monday fun, and has another post waiting for you.

You’re also welcome to join in the fun and post your own Mirth and Music Monday post.

One of these years it would be kinda cool to see our hashtag up on the trending list on Twitter:ย  #MirthMusicMon

.

One of these days.ย  You’ll see.ย  Bwahahaha!

.

Alright. That’s enough out of me. Getting a little power crazed in my lack of sleep.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a Great Monday!

How Survive Thinking Too Hard

15 Dec

Some of us have a very unfortunate affliction.ย  We have a hard time shutting off our brains when it comes time to relax. We could have miles of perfect beach with warm inviting waves just waiting for us, and we would still be running calculations through our minds.

Not good.

There must be real down time in our weeks or we’ll end up in the looney bin next to theoretical physicists who tried to tie ‘the force’ to string theory.

Here’s my (far from exhaustive and slightly silly) list of ways to make your brain stop spinning!

  • Take a bubble bath and bring along some bath toys. It’s hard to stress out with a rubber ducky grinning at you.
  • Go to the park and swing on the swings. You may not want to go very high, but it’s the giddy feeling in the pit of your stomach that counts.
  • Grab a friend, pop lots of popcorn and watch a ridiculous movie. It’s hard to stay serious when you’re trying not to laugh so hard you snort munchies through your nose when your buddy makes a rude comment about your favorite cartoon character.ย  Your.ย  *eye roll*
  • Go for a picnic. Even if it’s just in the living room pillow fort.
  • Have a friend over, then make and eat chocolate chip cookie dough. Face it, we’re always lucky to have even half the batch make it into the oven anyway. Just admit it this time, leave out the leavening and eggs, and revel in the naughtiness.
  • Go for a drive, just to drive. With the cost of gasoline these days this one has been relegated to the teenagers who are just so thrilled to have that freedom that they don’t care it’s costing them ten dollars. So, budget the money and go for a relaxing spin. Take a drive in the country. Tour your old neighborhood. Whatever. Just have fun with it!
  • Dance around like an idiot. This one has always worked for me in the past. It’s hard to think straight when you’re flipping your hair all over the room as you blast your favorite band. It’s also a great way to trick yourself into a great cardio workout.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 
  • Take a nap. This one never gets old. There are times when we have spun our minds (and bodies) so tight that the only thing to do is to give in and actually rest. Just grab your favorite teddy bear, your cat, or you significant other and zonk out for a while.
  • Go for a walk. No. Not a power walk. Not for actual exercise. This one is just to help you notice the sunshine, blue sky, and perhaps some of those wonderful endorphins that come out to play when you move around enough.
  • Read a fun book. I know, you’re reading this one to review, that one for work, and that one for self-improvement. Where is your down-time reading? You know, the fun one with pirates or unicorns or space ships (or if you’re lucky, all three).
  • Play a game. Be it chutes and ladders, hop scotch, or Battle Mech, playing a game can be very absorbing. Let yourself be drawn into the fun of the dice rolling, the intricate hops, or heh, sniping at a Marauder and an Annihilator while hopping up and down behind a hill.

Face it, you don’t have to give in to your mind taking over and not letting you pay attention to anything but your current project. There is hope. And thankfully, cheap ways to distract yourself from thinking way too hard.

Good luck!

Charlie Brown Medley Played By The Piano Guys

5 Dec

I think that life, this week, has been a little too serious for me. So I’m going to have a little fun before all the meetings and phone calls lined up for the rest of today.

I hope you have as much fun watching and listening to this as I did.

.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyPDQpel8bI

.

I love the music from all the Charlie Brown movies and specials.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

The Charlie Brown theme song is actually on my list of songs to learn to play when I can afford lessons.

.

Alright, time to go out and conquer this day!

Sunday Is A Good Day For A Sundae

10 Nov

I scream

You scream

We all scream

For i…

.

Yeah, that’s not original, is it?ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

Hmmm… What can I come up with?

.

Sunday is better than Monday,

Because Sunday is my day of rest.

Of all the days to have a Sundae,

Sunday is the best.

You ask me why,

And I will cry,

“I like Sundaes on Sundays

So I’m sweetened up for Mondays.”

.

That was almost too easy…

.

Here it is Sunday.

Please scoop me up a sundae.

For Sunday is a fun day.

It takes the edge off Monday.

And Tuesday,

And Wednesday,

And…

.

Well, they’re not perfect, but they were fun to write.ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

.

I don’t really know anything about this group, but I really like their sound. From the looks of it, they may have redone a lot of my old favorites. This could be fun to ‘research’.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย

MMM… Tesla Coil Scene from Sorcerer’s Apprentice

21 Oct

It’s Mirth and Music Monday!ย  Wahoo!

.

I really like this movie. I also really like Tesla coils.

Not in the “I’m going to go out and learn how to make and operate them” kind of way. More like “I accidentally watched an hour’s worth of videos about them because they fascinate my little brain.”

Ooh, Look! Shiny!

The Light Next to Tarazed

16 Oct

Hey! I found a really cool site today. It’s called Little Write Lies. It’s another WordPress site, owned by Taylor Eaton. I had a lot of fun perusing her blog this evening.

This is the first installment in a budding series of very short stories. There are 3 so far, but don’t despair, she has more coming in a little while.

The second story is Here.

The third story is Here.

She has more short-short stories on her site. Take a look around. ๐Ÿ˜€

.

I’m not sure if she’s on any other social media, but I know her through Twitter:ย  @tayloreaton

It’s a story with space travel!

It's a story with space travel! :D
