Robin Williams made my day

I have been out of blog land and swallowed by the demands of work, but thank goodness my friend, Chris sent me this clip of Robin Williams.  It is a bit long but worth the view as Robin gets funnier as it moves along.  The topic:  American Politics.  He had to do this shortly after the last presidential campaign.  Gosh...those were the days.  Lots of funny material.

You Can Rent Anything....even People

I found this on the MSN homepage today and I am now thinking of renting the Dalai Lama...or some cheaper version of him.  Check out what you can rent these days...

Robin Williams - The Actor's Studio

A clip from the Actor's Studio which features a short display of Robin's talents in "Good Morning, Vietnam". 
The whole clip is good but the scene from the movie is worth a few minutes of your time.  One thing, though...Robin's humor is very contextual in terms of people in the 1970' a lot of young people will have no idea who is talking about in his manic radio bit.

Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg takes big risk here and the result is interesting...and thought provoking.  What do you think?

Off To the Races

This comes from my niece, Cyanna...a clever little play on the horse races, but this one is with children and a carousel.

Designing Women

I have no idea how my brain works, but sometimes some person or show just pops into it and I have to go looking on YouTube to see what I can find.  Today, Designing Women visited my memory banks and this blog is the result. Designing Women starred Dixie Carter and this scene has Annie Potts and Delta Burke.  It started in 1989 and it was very funny--check it out if you could use a good laugh today.

The Highs of Motherhood

Counselors are supposed to know something about parenting whether or not they have their own children, so I am always on the lookout for some parenting tips and advice.  I was really happy to see this recent article in the New York Post about mothers who find their parenting skills are greatly improved when smoking pot.  Wow...I never thought about suggesting this before but the testimonials in this article are powerful:

A Park Slope mother of two young boys says, "It can help you look at your kids in a more positive light."

Another mother says that smoking pot brings about greater and deeper understanding and appreciation between mother and child:  "I have had moments where I felt like I could communicate with him better, back when he wasn't talking--we'd have a silent, eye-contact kind of conversation."

When I was a child, Dr. Spock (not from Star Trek), was the expert in child rearing, but he left out that chapter on the power of smoking pot, which is, according to "Moms for Marijuana" much better than drinking or prescription drugs.  I guess being a completely sober mother is simply not an option.

Thinking of Peter Falk...

I loved the television show, Columbo and I just learned the star, Peter Falk died today.  So, although not a comedy he was a funny character who drove people crazy but always caught the "bad guy or gal".  Click the link to watch a fun promo about the show--you will get a glimpse of a lot of stars who are no longer around.

These Ain't Happy Hour Drinks!

I am between paychecks so maybe I am feeling a bit lighter in the wallet than usual which is why I am writing another bit about indulging.   This time it is about alcohol and some fancy and very $$ drinks.  

I am sticking to my $2.50 margaritas for Happy Hour but if you got a few extra thousand lying around, you may want to try one of these for yourself!

Don't Buy Me a Gift Certificate for These Treatments....

I am so grateful for the internet because there are a lot of things happening out there that I would never know about...such as bizarre SPA treatments.  Who thinks up this stuff and maybe more importantly, who goes to these places?   I thought I was being extreme when I had a hot rock massage but now I know there are lot more options out there.   If you missed MSN's home page today, no worries because you are just a click away from being in the know!

The Honeymooners for the Middle of the Week

In the early 1950's, Jackie Gleason created a unique sitcom...The Honeymooners.  Ralph and Alice Kramden (played by Gleason and Audrey Meadows), lived a working class existence in New York City. This clip is  part I from a show that aired in October 1955.  Includes the opening theme and credits for the show and is pretty clever and fun to watch.

The Hefner Wedding is Off...

I know that I have been anxiously awaiting the exchange of vows between Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris this Saturday, but now I have to find something else to fill in the 10 or 15 minutes reserved for the ceremony.  Hugh is 85 (and looks pretty darn good) and Crystal is 25 (but looks older).  It would have been Hugh's third marriage and Crystal's first venture down the aisle.

If you are wondering what happened, well it seems the 25 year old changed her mind -- Hugh is not going to be the love of her life.  There is also a rumor that one of Dr. Phil's sons was involved in swaying Crystal away from the altar, most likely by playing old clips from his father's shows.

It just shows that love is a tricky thing no matter how old you are, how well you write your prenuptial agreement, how good you look in bathrobes or how much stock you own in Viagra.  There are no guarantees when it comes to matters of the heart.

I have heard that Hugh is heartbroken but also busily arranging his next pool party at the Mansion where, no doubt, a new love will soon emerge from the long list of Playmates who love to frolic with Hugh and his 2,000 closest friends.   Healing is on the way, Hugh...

Dogs and Alcohol

I guess stories and pictures of dogs that supposedly have had a bit too much to drink are as popular as posting intoxicated celebrities!  This was sent to me and so I have to pass it along...

My house was broken into last night by two robbers who locked me in the bathroom, and proceeded to steal all they could carry.  My watchdog, "Sunshine", did not alert me, and for this reason I am giving him away. I no longer want a dog - I'm installing an electric fence and detection devices with alarms. They're cheaper and more reliable.  For those interested in adopting the dog please send an e-mail urgently.

A photo of "Sunshine" is Below

Doughnut Road Trip!

I am planning my dream vacation--doughnut road trip!  I am busy right now getting all the GPS coordinates so that I can make the most efficient use of my time and cholesterol.  Want to learn more?  When you go to this link, you will have to scroll down a bit to get to the photos and details.  If you want to join me, let me know...I think a Doughnut Tour Bus is possible!

Commercials from the Super Bowl

I think enough time has passed to let the commercials from 2011 Super Bowl resurface for another view and a few chuckles.  Happy Friday

Walmart at Midnight

I am not a late night kind of gal.  When I was young I had to be in bed by 10pm so I believe that is my life curfew.  At 10pm I am in bed and usually sleeping.  However, last night the cold that was still lingering in my lungs was causing havoc.  I kept coughing and waking myself, my dogs, my partner and  probably the neighbors with my loud hacking.  I tried a spoonful of honey and hot tea and meditating but nothing worked.  Finally at 11:45pm I had had it.  I got up, put on some semi-presentable clothing and went to the one place in town that I knew would be open at this time of night--Walmart!

As I approached the gleaming blue sign I saw  dozens of RVs in the parking lot.  Yes, Walmart is an oasis for those who are traveling and like the sights, sounds and smells of automobiles, screaming children and gas fumes.  I actually had to drive around and through the ill parked RVs to find a parking space that was close to the store since I was in no mood to backpack through the parking lot.

I came through the one opened door in the front and was greeted by a guy who looked like he should be a poster child for "Stranger Danger".  Surprisingly the store was full of people wandering through the aisles with carts and kids full of groceries, dog food and things that I couldn't identify.  I had a moment of thinking that I was in a "B" movie and these shoppers were Zombies who could only come out at night, but then I returned to reality and hurried to the aisle with cough syrup. 

There was a guy in the aisle that was just staring at the cold medicines.  He didn't break his gaze even when I reached in front of him and said "excuse me"....I seriously considered going back today to see if he was still there.

Off to the cashier who reminded me of my abusive 5th grade teacher...she had that same kind of "killer stare" and she was all business.  No smile, no greeting, just a nod when the total rang up and then tossed the bag with my cough syrup at me.  My cough syrup had 1% alcohol in it and at this point, I was ready to rip it open and take a swig or two of it.

I started running out the door, past Stranger Danger greeter and the several families now entering the store with children in tow for a night time adventure at Wally World.  I was so glad to get home I kissed the driveway when I pulled in and went right to bed (after a few tablespoons of my cough syrup).

Walmart at Midnight in my town is quite an adventure, but I don't want to go back....

The End of the World is Coming.

Months ago I put this on my blog but since the day is rapidly approaching I thought it might be good to post it again.

I am not a great planner, and so when I read articles telling me that the End of the World is coming, I am always a bit unsure what to do. 

I just read an article regarding the date when the End of the World will happen.  Yup...the date is May 21, 2011.  Evidently there is a guy, Harold Camping who has calculated the date from his reading of the Bible.  Harold is, by the way, a retired civil engineer who is 89 years old and believes the Bible functions as a "cosmic calendar" for unfulfilled prophecies.  He is very busy spreading the word about THE DATE and trying to help people to be "saved" before the big day.  

I happen to be busy that day--my partner has a birthday on the 21st, so I can't put the End of the World down on my calendar, but maybe some of you are free and want to be ready just in case.  There is no time mentioned by Harold, so you may want to keep the entire day free. For more information and tips on planning the day, check out:

Jesus Music Video

This little clip disappeared ... either Google had problems with it or some higher power.  At any rate, it is back on... 

Another Animal Video

Another posting for the end of the work week and this one involves a talking dog...maybe it was funny because at this point in the week I am laughing at everything (thank goodness my boss isn't here to witness that).  If you love dogs and people who like to do voice overs for their dogs, then you will love this: 

The Pace of Life - Lucille Ball style

I love this video feels like my life.  Some days things are manageable and some days are overwhelming and out of control.  Thank you, Lucy, for making me laugh and smile at the end of the work week.

Chelsea Handler

I had to laugh today as I was having a major meltdown and seriously considering starting a new career as a car jacker.  I knew I could count on Chelsea Handler for a laugh because Chelsea has no limits when it comes to making fun of people.  Thank you, Chelsea for putting things in perspective....btw pagent parents are her target in this clip.

Dick Van Dyke

Dick Van Dyke is out promoting his new autobiography and I am not sure about his book, but he looks great for a 85 year old man. Since I keep seeing his photo and hearing his name, I took that as a sign to find something for my blog.

This clip shows Dick, Mary Tyler Moore, their television son and a beautiful German Shepherd dog.  It is pretty funny in that clearly Dick doesn't have a dog or know what to do with one who is staying overnight.  Hard to believe that television in the early 60s was in black and white and censored so that even married television couples slept in single beds. times have changed.

I am Back....

Okay...I work at a University and the semester is speeding along and I am running along side trying to keep up.  My blog, unfortunately gets left at the station...that is, until today.  I got this video from my sister-in-law and after watching it I started dancing...of course that lead to my colleagues calling the security people because they couldn't tell if I was dancing or convulsing.  Maybe you will have better luck!

Saturday Night Live and Fox Friends

I admit I haven't watched Fox and Friends -- I had no idea what I was missing!  The good folks at Saturday Night Live obviously have had more time than me to watch and put together a skit about recent events.  Makes me proud to watch other networks.
When you click on the link there is brief advertisement...but it is worth the wait.

Robin Williams doing accents...

I always wanted to have a real, true and very noticeable accent.  I love them.  I still toss in an accent here and there just to make my stories sound better.  Several years ago I got bored at a case staffing at the agency where I worked so I did my entire case staffing with a Russian accent.  I was pretty new to the group and several people thought I might be Russian.  I loved that.

Speaking of accents, I found this clip with Robin Williams doing a short series of different accents on Ellen's show.  Evidently Robin was challenged to do these accents to raise money for Comic Relief and, as usual, Robin was up to the task of performing.  

I hope you enjoy this (btw I wrote that with a Turkish accent to honor my friend, Derya).

It's good to be back...

You May Want to Check Out These Places on Your Next Road Trip...or Not

Today, in case you missed it (on purpose), there was a link on the MSN site for "Weird Roadside Attractions" right here in the good old USA.  So, if you are about to take a road trip you may want to check them out or find a route that avoids seeing them.    Happy travels...

Aries Horoscope

If you were a bundle of joy that arrived between March 21 and April 20th, you are an ARIES.  The sign for all the Aries of the world is a Ram although before it was voted on by the ancients, there was talk of the Aries sign being a platypus. Obviously, the Ram won.

Those of the Aries persuasion are responsible, self-reliant, headstrong, and strong leaders.  A few of the better known Aries are Sandra Day O'Connor, Elton John, Loretta Lynn and some guy who sells Buicks named, Oscar.  So, you Aries are in good company.

As the first sign in the Zodiac, Aries are in for lots of "firsts" this year.  Seems you are going to be the first to try out a new idea from Apple.  You, of course, know the iPad and the iPod, but you will be soon be using the new iPoke.  This small, hand held cattle prod device will enable you to poke and prod people to get out of your way without touching them.  Such a fun device and useful, too as it can be effective within a 3 mile range.  Apple is sure this is another winner!

Later in the year, your Moon is aligned with Jupiter and this means you are finding yourself strangely attracted to old fact, you start a whole collection of socks....Past & Present...and try to rent space so that you can display this growing collection of clothing that only you and some woman who named her first born, "Stretch" are interested in.  Fortunately, this phase is time limited...although the lease for your "Socks Space" may have a longer time frame.

As the year twists into the New Year, your 5th house will plunge into your new moon.  This means it is time to move and you have found the perfect least in your present state of astrological influences.  This house is made out of  Fruit Loops, Cheerios and Doritos.  Can you picture it? one can talk you out of this purchase and no one wants to visit or live there.  So, there you have it...a biodegradable house located right outside the city limits of Juarez.  Sometimes the planets do mean things.

So, Aries people, that's all for now.  Happy Astrological Moments!

Ellen and some funny commercials

Ellen's staff is on the look out for some funny commercials so that she can share them on her show.
There are four in this video...the last two are the least in my opinion, but all are worth looking at.

Otters Holding Hands

Okay, I am a sap for Otters...I love their little faces and the way they swim and play.  I could watch them all day.  Here is a video that isn't really funny but it made me smile and is really kind of sweet.  So, if you love Otters like I love Otters, you will love this:

Carol Burnett Show

I am old enough to remember watching Carol Burnett...I loved her show...Tim Conway, Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence.  I thought she was (and still is) amazingly talented.  This clip shows several bits and pieces of her show, including the dysfunctional family of the year, a skit about Gone With The Wind and other goodies.

So here is a salute to Carol Burnett  and laughter.

George Lopez Show

George Lopez is one funny guy.  When his show was on ABC I was busy doing something and never saw any episodes, but thank goodness for recycled programs and cable!  I think this episode (although it is about Halloween) is a great example of his show and his humor.

More Babies...

I just received a YouTube video about Evian Roller Babies....very clever and cute.  Babies are in.

Click on Evian Roller Babies to view.  This commercial may encourage people to have a baby but I say don't do it unless you have one that can roller skate like the babies in this video.   Wow!

African American Comedians are Celebrated this Month

It's Pisces Time....

If you were born between February 20th and March 20th you are a Pisces.  In case you missed this in past astrological readings, the sign for Pisces are two fishes swimming in opposite directions which is symbolic of the ADD features of most Pisces.  Pisces people are creative, understanding, naive, and a bit idealitstic.

Jump to the present and you will find Pisces everywhere noticing that their Moon is oppositional of just about everything.  Talk about tantrums...Pisces people wrote the book.  Currently Pisces seem very drawn to sculptures and art work made from old chewing tobacco, but don't ask me why.  So if you live with a Pisces don't be surprised if they bring home something old and smelly that they adore.  This will pass but until it does your home will not be fun to live in or visit.

Around mid summer Neptune and Jupiter, Pisces ruling planets, will be aligned and this event will have you Pisces swimming around like the crazy fishes you are.  What this alignment will bring is a sense of joy and harmony as you become a Hare Krishna, marry someone named Moonbeam and once again start the long honored tradition of passing out pamphlets and begging for money at the ariport.  The shaved hair and orange robes will only enhance your sense of delight as both family and friends avoid you until this phase of the planets pass.  As for your marriage to Moonbeam don't get too invested...

Later in the year your 8th house will be superimposed on Tony Orlando.   It seems that you are going to start your own reality show about composting.  What a hit this is sure to be as you demonstrate composting throughout the year.  Can't wait for that to happen.

All in all you Pisces people are about to have a year that is just that--a year.  Enjoy what you can and Happy Planets!

If You Have a Toddler of Course You Have to Make a Crazy YouTube Video

This YouTube video which came to me via a friend is crazy and funny, and some wacky parents are undoubtedly going to have to go to therapy later in life and explain why they decided to do this video featuring their little girl. 

Maybe parenthood is more fun than I believe.   To see what I mean click the link below:

A Fun Ad

My friend, Toby, sent this to me and I loved it and I am sharing it with anyone who has yet to see it.  Be sure to read the information carefully before you click on the link.

HEMA is a Dutch department store. The first store opened on November 4, 1926, in Amsterdam. Now there are 150 stores all over the Netherlands .

Take a look at HEMA's product page (catalog) -just wait a couple of seconds and watch what happens.  DON'T click on any of the items in the picture; just wait..

This company has a sense of humor and a great computer programmer, who has too much time on his hands. Click on the link below:

Bob Hope

I do not really understand how my mind works but some days I wake up with people or ideas in my head and I have to share them...what else am I supposed to do with them?

Today I woke up thinking of Bob Hope...go figure! So when I had a second I looked on YouTube (my new best friend), and found this great little video tribute to him.  There are some funny and some touching parts and it made me like him even more after seeing it.  So, wherever you are, Bob Hope, I got the message.

To view the video click on his name....

The Krispy Kreme Doughnut Race

I try really hard to keep up with the world news, but I have been missing something for the last few years--the Krispy Kreme Challenge in Raleigh, North Carolina.  This event has been going on at least since 2008 and I have yet to travel there and register for this amazing race.

Here are the details--about 7,500 people this year got up in the early morning and ran for two miles, grabbed a box of a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts, ate them, and then ran back along the same route for another two miles.  Talk about a challenge....seems the run burns about 2,400 calories which is just about the total number of calories for a dozen Krispy Kreme glazed doughnuts. 

I am inspired to start my own run for the doughuts every weekend.  I will run a total of four miles to eat a dozen doughuts any day.  So, yay North Carolina and yay Krispy Kreme.

Oh I couldn't find the lastest run on YouTube but here is how it looked last year:      Fun times...

You Got to Love Enterprenaurs

The United States is a wonderful country where anyone can make it rich if they have even marginally good ideas and great  marketing techniques.

"As Seen on TV" has a website so you don't have to watch hundreds of hours of television waiting for "Potty Patch" for your pets who hate to go outdoors, or "E-Z Peel Gloves" to help peel those difficult hard boiled eggs,  or "Pajama Jeans" that look like jeans but wear like comfy pajamas, to flash across the screen so that you can order everyone you know a gift they never imagined receiving.  There are literally hundreds of ideas that have been turned into products by factories in third world countries using child labor.

Speaking of unique products, you have to check out this one.  Some "dudes" have developed a new drink called "Pot Pop" aimed to help those people who want the benefits of medical marijuana but don't want the smell or the smoke.  Soon it will be on the shelves in Colorado and beyond.  In order to fully appreciate this information you have to watch the entire video.  Sorry there is a commercial to begin with but NBC is not free....

God, I love this country! 

Click on "Pot Pop" or here for the scoop:

Happy Birthday, Aquarians

If your birthday is January 20th to February 18 you are nothing less than a child of the stars!  The Zodiac sign for Aquarius is some guy with little clothing pouring water out of a big jug.  So you would think Aquarius is a water sign, but is full of Air and those of you who live with Aquarians know what I mean.

This is quite a birthday year for you...oh yes.  This year your 7th house is aligned with Mercury.  This means you are starting a cottage industry.  Yes, you are going to start building cottages and doing God knows what with them once they are built.

About midway into the year, Jupiter is going to be oppositional of your ruling plant, Uranus...which is kind of embarrassing to talk about.  Seems you are obsessed with Pee Wee Herman who nobody remembers but you.  This obsession is going to lead to additional time in your therapist's office and hopefully Uranus and Jupiter will make up soon so you can have a life.

The last part of the year, Mercury is waning and whining through your moon.  This means you are going to grow a Unibrow and start dressing like Lady GaGa's mother, WuWu.  These new outfits will amaze your friends and scare your co-workers, but remember Aquarius people like to try on new ideas, so this should be right up your astrological alley.

Happy Planets...

Bill Cosby and the Woman from North, South Carolina

One of the best things about the internet is how easy it is to share funny things with others.  I love the laughter network that is created as we forward bits from one person to another.  This little video clip comes from my friend Mary.    It is a few years old but it shows Bill Cosby doing what he does best--playing off another person.  Bill is funny and witty and the woman is funnier than she is intending to be. 

Since this was shared with me, I wanted to share it with you.

Art Linkletter -- and those darn kids

In the 1950s and 1960s Art Linkletter had hundreds of kids on his show and simply asked them questions and let their responses provide the laughs.  In Bob Newhart's book, "I Shouldn't Even be Doing This", he told a story about Art and one of those children.  Seems one of the boys on the show was off by himself, in a corner while the other kids were laughing and having a good time.  Art went over to him and asked "Is something wrong?".

 "Yeah", he replied, "my dog died this week".

Art wanted to comfort him so, he said, "well, your dog went to heaven and when you go to heaven you will see your dog again so don't be too unhappy".

The boy looked at Art quizzically.  "What does God want with a dead dog"?  

Ah, the logic of children.  I have a clip, introduced by Bill Cosby that shows just how Art's show went.  Should bring you a few chuckles.

The Oprah Show...

Mad TV is nothing short of crazy.  A lot of their skits are so far over the top that the humor gets lost in the journey.  Having said that, I have to say some of their stuff is funny and such is the case of this little clip featuring Oprah's show.  Since it is her last season and since she is now on seems fitting to put up this skit.  Pretty funny...but then I think a lot of stuff is funny, so you decide.

Even Witches Have to Pay Taxes

Only a few people escape paying income tax--drug dealers, car thieves, bank robbers and some corporate giants.  I never really thought about witches and income taxes, but it seems that, at least in Romania, witches have escaped paying income taxes for centuries, but no more.  However, these witches are not happy about having to shell out part of them income for casting spells and creating curses.  In fact, the witches are so upset they have threatened the government with spells and spirits.   So far, however, the government is standing firm although some of the curses and spells may not have yet taken effect. 

I am not sure if witches in the United States are taxed but with the bad economy, downturn in the housing market and several reality shows involving housewives in New Jersey, I would be very cautious about taxing anyone whose profession involves casting spells or making potions.

Finding the Right Profession

You have to make sure that the profession you are choosing is a good fit...I mean you want a surgeon who is good at anatomy;  a chef who can really cook; a counselor who isn't psychotic, and so on.

I wrte this because the other day I found an article about a burglar who really needs to find a new profession.  Seems this guy, who is 44 and should have figured this out by now, broke into a home in Delaware that he had broken into back  in April.  Obviously he liked the place and since no one was home he made himself comfortable and stayed a few days.  He also drank alittle bit--3 bottles of Gin; 2 bottles of whiskey.  He was having a great time...until he decided it was time to leave.  He was so drunk he couldn't climb back out of the window through which he entered the house, so he did what any drunk burglar would do--he called 911.   

This burglar is now in jail and hopefully getting career counseling.

Another Round of Sarah Silverman and Cancer

I am re-posting this bit on cancer done by Sarah Silverman as I have a good friend who has a very rare cancer and will soon go through surgery and radiation that is very invasive.  I share Sarah's sentiment about cancer...and if you know anyone who has ever had cancer you will totally relate to what she has to say in her funny, crazy way.

The End of the World is Coming!

I am not a great planner, and so when I read articles telling me that the End of the World is coming, I am always a bit unsure what to do. 

I just read an article regarding the date when the End of the World will happen.  Yup...the date is May 21, 2011.  Evidently there is a guy, Harold Camping who has calculated the date from his reading of the Bible.  Harold is, by the way, a retired civil engineer who is 89 years old and believes the Bible functions as a "cosmic calendar" for unfulfilled prophecies.  He is very busy spreading the word about THE DATE and trying to help people to be "saved" before the big day.  

I happen to be busy that day--my partner has a birthday on the 21st, so I can't put the End of the World down on my calendar, but maybe some of you are free and want to be ready just in case.  There is no time mentioned by Harold, so you may want to keep the entire day free.
