7 Quick Takes Friday: Laugh 'til you Cry

(1)
This video may be, hands down, the funniest thing on the internet. Ever. Since the invention of funny things. And the internet.

 
Tears.  Tears streaming down my face by the end.  Watch it!  And a huge thank-you to Elizabeth who originally shared it with me on the twitter.  So.  Awesome.

(2)
Completely unrelated, Bonnie is overdue to have her newest sweet baby and she needs some words of encouragement.  And support.  And perhaps a few inappropriate jokes (sorry if you weren't looking for inappropriate jokes, Bonnie.  But it is Friday after all!).  Go see her and love her and follow her.  Read some archives.  You won't be sorry.

(3)
If you want to know what I'm completely throwing an absolute, utter, spoiled-brat fit about (sounds uplifting doesn't it???) these days, you can bounce on over to my most recent CE post.  Get your tiny violins ready to play me a sad, sad song.....  

(4)
Tomorrow I'll be 35 weeks pregnant.  35 weeks!  We're just 3 photos away from delivery, folks.  (Because I capriciously decided to take big ol' belly photos at the exact intervals I took them with Cecilia, which means 35 then 37 then THE BIG DAY.  The big day!).  So tomorrow (consider this a warning for all of you who are sick to pieces of hearing about my gestating child) will be enormous belly pic day and a guess-the-birthday poll.  Try not to lose sleep over it tonight, okay?

(5)

Oh, here's something super special that happened this week- I went out to close up the chicken coop after dark because we had forgotten and it was late and I'm so nice that I didn't want to force my children to go out in their pajamas.  And it's a good freaking thing I did because THERE WERE TWO RACOONS INSIDE THE COOP.  Do I even need to remind you of Chicken Hospital Day?!?!?!


My heart was racing.  I didn't know what to do.  I don't wanna get rabies, ya know?  That would suck.  Luckily, my favorite person to inconvenience was home, seeing as it was night, so I RAN back to the house.    Keep in mind that I'm 76 months pregnant.  And I was wearing a skirt.  With tall rubber boots.  And an old, ginormous UD basketball t-shirt.  And now I'm running.  Through the dark, carrying a tiny pocket flashlight

(6)
It's too hard to explain everything that had to occur to get those God-forsaken creatures out of the coop, but  I'll tell you that it involved a pitchfork and a shovel and a very brave husband.  And no chickens were harmed in the making of said rescue.  

Have I ever mentioned that I hate raccoons?

(7)
p.s. Apparently "raccoon" is a word (no red squiggly) but "raccoons" is not a word (big, fat red squiggly).  And do you know WHY????  Because even blogger refuses to believe that anyone could have more than one raccoon in their presence and survive to tell the tale!

  2. Thank you for the kindness. So far, no inappropriate jokes, but I'll hold out hope. ;)

    I hate raccoons, too, but maybe opossums more. Those things were created by God to fill us all with the fear of Hell.

  7. Yikes. I'm glad those chickens of yours are okay. Nasty old raccoons!

  8. One of the Worst Songs in the History of the World, but that video somehow makes every stupid second of it worthwhile.

    I hate raccoons. They pretend to be all "look how cute and furry I am" and truly they just want to kill your chickens, scatter your garbage across the yard, and then give you rabies or something.

  9. Ok. That video was so creepy that I feel compelled to leave, I think, my second comment ever. Is that the original video for the song (which I *have* heard, like 40 kadillion times)?

    And, am I the only one who thinks it looks like it's about a skeevy woman teacher having overwhelming urges for all the lusty young men at her school-- complete with demonic choir boys tempting her to evil?

    Is it just me?

    1. Oh yes...that's the video! Different lyrics, though ;)

      And yep, I would say skeevy, lustful woman. And something about the devil maybe?

      Why was it so popular??????

  13. And again another thank you for introducing me to that video. Except that I haven't gotten it out of my head since the other night. I spent two hours mowing the lawn and the same lines kept running through my head (mostly, of course, the inappropriate ones). I didn't even need my walkman. I am a bit disturbed that the husband didn't laugh nearly as hard as I did nor did he request to view it again. Something is very wrong.

  14. Now I am left wondering why I loved Bonnie Tyler so much in the 80's! SO FUNNY!

  16. Did a 5k for church today at a local park. Ecountered a raccoon tail. Yes. Just the tail. Feel better?

  17. LOVE the video! Hilarious!
    Your sacrifice post was great! It's making me reconsider what I consider a sacrifice probably isn't "exactly" that. Oops! Always a good example you set!
    Hate them darn raccoons! (Yep, red, squiggly line!) I hope you can figure out a way to keep them out!
