Just Dance!

I’m waiting for the bread machine to beep so I can turn it off and head out to meet some friends at Iron Bridge Park. My friend Lia posted this on her blog, and I hate  to be a copycat, but I love it. She posted this back in January. It’s almost April. That’s about how long it took me to see the infamous wedding video. That’s me. Always behind the times with these darn internets.

You think that was great? Check out this guy! You could just eat him up!

Chicken vs. Dragon

Missing Owen today. This video gets a little boring… until Owen punches me in the face. It’s also kind of funny when I flinch afterwards.
Packing is done. Count-down till closing/moving. T-minus 24 hours.

The 26 Most Disturbing Kids Movies Ever.

Babble contributor Cole Gamble made a list of  “family movies that will scar your children for life.” Here is what made his top 26 list.

The tunnel scene of this movie is the single most frightening sequence in all of ’70s cinema. And we’re talking about a decade that brought us The Exorcist and Alien. Gene Wilder is simply brilliant in this subversive kiddie classic.  One look at him and there is no way you’re believing this movie really is for children. Let me ask you, if Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka rang your doorbell, would you let him in? Didn’t think so.

Making the list at #8 is Watership Down. Talk to my brother about that one. I never saw the movie myself. My poor mom rented it when Dane was home from school sick in about the 1st grade. It had cartoon bunnies on the front…completely harmless right? Dane cried himself to sleep for weeks. He graduates from college this spring, and I’m sure he doesn’t appreciate me reminding him of that movie to this day.

My husband just informed that they are making a movie based on the classic children’s book Where the Wild Things Are. My prediction? Add it to the list.

everything’s amazing, nobody’s happy

Good morning  folks. My Aunt Janna sent this to me this morning. It made me giggle. Enjoy.

p.s. you can get high speed internet on an airplane — but not at my parents house in Ohio.

Sunday funny.

This blog cracks me up. Also read Party in Apartment 3. I was practically shaking I laughed so hard. I really need to get ready for work. I can’t stop reading. I may be late. I don’t know who this David fellow is, but thank you. I’ll be going to work happy.

He’s a funny, funny man.

My Aunt Janna sent this one out today and the answers sent back by my Uncle Sammy were a hoot and a half. He’s a funny, funny man. So here are some highlights. The pee-your-pants funny parts (#8 and #43 for example) and the just plain true parts (#14 and #17, minus Regan. haha.) I hope he doesn’t mind me sharing with ya’ll for posterity…. oh wait, my mom and my MIL are the only folks that read this thing. Hi guys!

Sammy you really aught to start a blog. Yes, it’s totally dorky, but your family would love it.  A Holbrooks’ family collaboration wouldn’t be too shabby either.

Hey, here goes. Guess you’re s’posed to copy and paste this and send it to
everybody else and me.

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
Mom made a great issue of the fact that I was named after Samuel and
David, a King and a Judge. She should have lowered her expectations and
named me Elvis Judy.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
The evening of November 4th.
Although I did tear up a bit this morning when I saw that Ford, GM, and
Chrysler stocks are being outperformed by Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
Three, and a really cool grandson who thought it was okay to whup it out
and pee in Wal-Mart the other day when his Mom wasn’t looking. He picked
up several new fans. Grandparents love this stuff. It’s payback time.

8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
Yes, and doggedly determined to keep my testicles as well.

9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
I’ll only get upside down for money, and I’ll only jump off a bridge when
I call it quits.

12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
I was until KTW took my muscles. Until I make my comeback, I’ll just have
to B.S. my way out of everything.

14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Whether or not they smile at strangers.

17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?
Mom, Dad, Cecil, Fogelberg, Ronald Reagan, and the drummers from The Who
and Led Zeppelin.

21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
Local weather report. Brrr. Temps are lower than Barney Frank’s belly.

23. FAVORITE SMELLS?
Barbecued brisket, rain in Texas, a baby’s breath.
Least Favorite? The French Quarter after Fat Tuesday.

24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?
Lawrence last night, and this morning, #4.
As in, “If you’d like to speak to someone who gives a rat’sass, please
press number four.”

26.  FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH?
Football. Also, Olympic gymnastics if they had cheerleaders… or would
that be redundant?

38. LEAST LIKELY TO RESPOND. The snoops at Google. Hi Google!

43. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES?
Beatles. Mick Jagger’s a weeny. That’s right, I said it.

44. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME? New York City.
New York City?!?!?

45. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT?
Are drummers talented, or are we just the guys who hang out with real
musicians?
Am I a good Publisher, or just a frustrated novelist? Hmmm.
Unlike most Americans, I do enough homework to know who’s responsible for
what. I guess that counts for something.

46. WHERE WERE YOU BORN?
Terrell, By God Texas.

But Why?

47. WHOSE ANSWERS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BACK?
Anyone whose answers are accompanied by a new riding lawnmower.

Hey, everybody have a Gay Christmas and a Merry New Year!! Or whatever.

— Samuel Holbrooks

Not a game!

Morgan and I were traveled through Fauquier to my folks’ house last night. We stopped at a small pizza place because Owen was being really fussy and that can only mean one thing. He wanted food. (My Father-in-law was right, he’s always good unless he’s hungry).

They had an ATM machine like I’ve never seen before:

A sign posted on it read:

securedownload-1

Makes sense, but before they had to put a sign on it, some kid had to be like, “Worst. Game. Ever.”
