Buggie's YouTube obsessions

After reading Diablo Cody’s less than inspiring list of YouTube favorites in Entertainment Weekly recently, I decided to give a little list of my own favs.

  1. Sleeping Meerkats: What’s not to love? These little critters are too frickin’ cute. Then add to the fact that they fall asleep while standing and then topple over? Priceless!
  2. Baby Stink Eye: This kid throws you a dirty look and then rolls in laughter. I think I have watched this video 300,000 times.
  3. Randy Johnson hits a bird: While this is not the greatest copy, it is kind of wild. Randy Johnson, the “Big Unit”, hits a pigeon while pitching. Gross, but so crazy! All the feathers! Imagine seeing this at the game? This is why baseball is good. Well, it’s not for the birds…
  4. Labatt Blue: Canadian beer commercials are always good. It was hard to pick just one, so you should look at the others. This commercial really has nothing to do with the beer, rather the lunacy of those who drink it. Cheers.
  5. NHL Goalies: This is just a super cool video. Who does not love a crazy goalie (Roy) or a goalie that is willing to stand up for a teammate? Awesome!
  6. Peyton Manning: Anything this man does, really, is quite funny. (You know, save for his football career... I mean he is a good football player, not like Randy Moss who tries to swim on the field or whatever it is that he does.) These are two of the best MasterCard commercials ever. I pick these because I could not find the video from SNL with him and the kids which is HI-larious! (Also, my list already includes golf balls, baseball and hockey. Have to throw some football in there). Okay, Matt found the SNL skit which is maybe the funniest thing to ever come out of SNL, ever! It's not on YouTube, but my blog, my rules. Or something... Enjoy!
  7. Sportscenter: Any one of their commercials is fantastic, and since I seem to be leaning towards a sports bent, I may as well keep it up. This is one of my favorites.

    That’s all I’ve got. I got carried away with the sports clips and now I can’t go back. I hope you enjoy. Happy Friday!

Save me, Madge and JT!

If Madonna and Justin Timberlake only have four minutes to save the world, why don't they hurry up and do something, instead of singing about it?

I'm gonna live forever. I'm gonna learn how to fly high!

My friend sent me a test to gauge your real age and I took it. Turns out you will never be rid of me (mwah ha ha!). I am biologically 34 years old, yet my real age is 23.4 (which explains a lot about my behavior. Don't respond to that!). The average life expectancy is 74, yet I shall live to be 84.6. I have another 18500 days to fritter away!

Test yourself here.

Clogging up my mind right now:

I only have 5 days left of school and the in one month I will be an official college graduate. I still have a research paper due and some class work, but I would not be me if I did not wait until the very last minute to do it. I did make some minor deviations this time around, though. I made plans with friends for Thursday night, Friday night and Sunday morning. I figure I am going to be lounging about, not doing what I should be anyway. Might as well have some fun and feel the pressure more acutely once I walk into my home. I am thinking this may actually push me to work on the paper, rather than watching TV and cleaning because these are preferable to contemplating why archeology is/is not helpful in proving the accuracy of the Bible.

I am still angry with the Academy for awarding Jennifer Hudson with an Oscar for her role as a screaming, boob flinger in Dreamgirls. I still think she should have to return it and apologize to me.

I have had way too much coffee this morning. It’s not even good coffee.

I have big plans to clean and organize my office this morning. So far I have filed a stack, trashed a stack, sent a stack to various people and eaten a banana. I am on a roll.

I saw “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” last night. Brilliant! I was going to try to get my mum to see it with me last Sunday, but boy am I glad we did not go! Holy smokes! I remember watching an episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 with her that included some sort of sex scene (It was TV, but it was also Fox. So, just sayin’). I was mortified. I cannot begin to describe how watching FSM would have made me squirm were my mother’s eyes on the same, er… prize? as mine. I really liked the film, though. Especially when (spoiler alert!) Peter and Sarah tried to revisit their relationship and he just did not feel (heh) for her anymore. It’s weird that you can have such strong feelings for someone, but then you have some time away from them and you realize how much they are just NOT the person for you. Anyway, hilarious.

Why are all simple sundresses empire-waisted? I look terrible in high waisted dresses. I have no shape and look chunky. Even in my skinny days, I looked fat in high waisted dresses. I think it is due to my (as a classmate in high school so lovingly referred to as my) child bearing hips. So, make some dresses for me. Pretty, simple things with a low waist, or perhaps a waist where is supposed to be. Sheesh.
