Because some thing are just too good not to share … and this is one of those times!
How to be miserable
Call me warped, but I love the dark humor in this and just had to share … seems pretty accurate to me!
Ms. Swan as The Black Swan
OK, so maybe you don’t like parodies as much as I do, or you don’t know who Ms. Swan is. But if you are a MadTV or Ms. Swan fan, like me, I think you’ll enjoy this. Otherwise, just skip it ’cause it won’t make any sense.
And if Mel Blanc’s version wasn’t enough for you …
… check out the Animaniacs version of the Schnitzelbank song. Thanks to Keith for mentioning it!
New Favorite Christmas Song
We heard this on Sirius 4 a few days ago for the first time, and it’s hysterical. Juliette especially loves the train sounds. It’s a Mel Blanc (he the voice of Bugs Bunny) song from 1953 called “Yah Das Ist Ein Christmas Tree” and here is a YouTube video.
The Digital Story of the Nativity
Thanks to friend Sandy in Memphis for finding this.
Monday Morning Silliness
I has a hot dog
Someone turned me on to the companion site, Icanhascheezburger, some time ago. I guess you have to be in the mood for these sites to strike your funny bone – and I’ve been in the mood for a while now. If you are a pet lover, you’ll love to spend some surfing time checking these sites out. They make me smile and laugh.
Country Threads, Garner, Iowa
(Click on the photo to see the slideshow of our trip!) On Saturday I headed down to Iowa with three of my quilt buddies, Joan, Karen and Dawn. It was a perfect fall day for a car trip. We were off for Garner, Iowa, about 145 miles from my house, and a fabulous quilt store on a little town west of Clear Lake. On our way back, we stopped in Northfield. We were going to go to a yarn store called Cottage Industry, which we discovered had closed over a year ago. So we went to Digs instead. They took over the yarn stock of the place that closed. What a fun little store. Actually, all of downtown Northfield is fun – great little shops along Division Street. If you haven’t been, you should make a day trip of it. Just don’t show up at the Indian restaurant expecting to eat between 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm. They won’t be waiting on you.
WOW 2007 Quilt Show
Several weeks ago now I attended a quilt show given by a local guild to which several of my friends belong. The name of the guild is “Women of the West”, or WOW as they are known to many. I’ve been terribly tardy in getting the pictures off my camera and onto my site, but I offer these two links for you to peruse. The first link contains some of my favorite quilts that were on display. There were dozens and dozens more, but I couldn’t shoot them all: http://www.fiberguy.com/slideshow/slideshow.html#id=wow2007 The second slide show is from a “bed turning” they did at the show. The folded back each old quilt over the bed, and told it’s story, where it was from, how it was made, what people remember about it, etc. It was most fascinating. Almost a “quilts as journals” type of thing. http://www.fiberguy.com/slideshow/slideshow.html#id=bedturning Enjoy!
