Diversions, Part Duh....

Wh00t!

As of this typing, I am DoneDaddyDone with holiday shopping!

Did I already say "wh00t"???

Now I can start decorating, cooking, and addressing those darn cards that have been sitting on the dresser for over a week.
(Somehow, I was hoping that magic elves would come and get the cards started if I just ignored them. I was wrong...
Stupid lazy magic elves.)

It's hard to feel a lot like Christmas when it's been 76° every day this week. Don't get me wrong - I'm not complaining... Not when other sweet peas are having horrific ice storms! (Be safe and stay warm, ladies!)
I'm just saying: it's disconcerting to see people walking around in shorts and tee-shirts. IN DECEMBER!

Despite all the pre-holiday business going on - I did have time to find two more diversions that are amusing me today. Enjoy!



  • I'm not sure if I should thank KBella, or curse her! She introduced me to SnowDays.
    I'm thinking that I'm going to thank her - although I have wasted more time in the past day...Thanks, KBella!

    SnowDays is another "Cut out a Virtual SnowFlake" site - but I like the capabilities of this one better. Even when I'm just mucking about, I'm impressed with the results...

    One funny thing - I was using the search feature, so that I could show Bubba all the flakes that Schecky and I had made, and you'll never guess what I uncovered...

    I had obviously visited this site once before, on New Year's Eve of 2002.
    I have no memory of this (perhaps not surprising, being that it was NYE and all...) but it cracked me up nonetheless.
    Yep - way back almost 5 years ago, I made a flake, left a dorky comment, and then never thought of it again. Until now...

    (Just to illustrate how old that flake is, it's flake number 10800. There are, as of today, over 5.5 MILLION flakes)

  • If you don't know who Soulja Boy Tell Em is, then the chances are good that you don't live in Atlanta.
    Here?
    It's hard to escape that one song...

    So this YouTube video of SpongeBob Singing Soulja Boy? Totally. Cracking. Me. Up.

    Caution: lyrics not appropriate for youngsters. Except they are practically incomprehensible - so I've been letting Schecky watch with me...

    Additional Caution: if you aren't already familiar with Soulja Boy? Don't click on the link - you'll get that thumping bass line stuck in your head and it won't come out. It's totally stupid, and totally infectious. Don't say you weren't warned...

    (watch me crank it watch me roll....)

Ah, you called me a sweet pea in the public forum. :)

We're all good here. Not warm, (it was 18 degrees when I walked at 5 a.m.)but good. My folks even got their power back. Woot! and we have 3-5 inches of snow in store for us tonight/tomorrow. Can you say sledding?

And I'll have to wait until after the holidays to check your diversions. No reading blogs at work is diversion enough. But seriously, could you finish my shopping for me? That'd be great.

And as for the magical elves, according to the book we were reading last night, elves are less magical than fairies or pixies. So maybe you could elicit some envelope addressing from them.
